President Obama, White House: Al Qaeda Is Racist
abc news ^ | 7/13/10 | Jake Tapper

Posted on 07/13/2010 9:19:49 PM PDT by Nachum

In an interview earlier today with the South African Broadcasting Corporation to air in a few hours, President Obama disparaged al Qaeda and affiliated groups' willingness to kill Africans in a manner that White House aides say was an argument that the terrorist groups are racist.

Speaking about the Uganda bombings, the president said, "What you've seen in some of the statements that have been made by these terrorist organizations is that they do not regard African life as valuable in and of itself. They see it as a potential place where you can carry out ideological battles that kill innocents without regard to long-term consequences for their short-term tactical gains."

Seems to me that AQ is pretty muc and “equal opportunity” terrosit organization. White,black, christian, jew, muslim, adult, women, child..they don’t give a rats rear about who they kill.

How can we deal with Islamist terrorism if we refuse to tell ourselves the truth about it? It’s not like AQ goes around trying to hide its intentions or motivations. They loudly tell the world who they are and what they’re all about, but all the ‘realists’ in this administration won’t believe it. Obama injection racialism into the issue says a great deal about his deep-seated biases, and nothing about bin Ladin’s.

Yes, and I am sure they are deeply hurt by the accusation from Obama that they are racist. It is really only white Americans and Europeans that can be hurt by this accusation. It is meaningless in the Middle East and most of the rest of the world.

No doubt. Are the Obamacrats insane or just plain stupid? AQ kills Jews, Iraqi people, Afghan, and whites and now suddenly Obama wants to throw out the race card? Fine, send Jesse and Al over to Wazeristan, the guy who went over there to kill Bin Laden can be their guide, and let them see if they can come home with Bin KKK Ladin’s head in a sack. Oh heck, they can even take a division of the New Black Panther party with them.

the president said, "What you've seen in some of the statements that have been made by these terrorist organizations is that they do not regard African life as valuable in and of itself.

The underwear bomber, not something for Obama to get worked up, he would have killed mostly only white Americans. The Fort Hood killer, again, he killed American military people - Obama not too worried.

But this killing of Africans could be a big mistake by Al Qaeda - now they are making Obama mad!

As anyone who has read Dreams of My Father would understand, in Obama's world those closest to his heart are, in order:

1. The Luo tribe
2. Black Africans
3. African-Americans

Those farthest from his heart:

1. British colonists in Kenya
2. The British generally
3. Typical white people, especially business owners.

“.they give a pass to the most racist administration since Woodrow Wilson.”

You’re pretty much on target about Woodrow “KKK” Wilson, a democrat. But FDR sure gave Wilson a challenge when he locked up Japanese Americans, ignored all the lynchings in the 1930s and turned back Jews fleeing from fascist Germany. Needless to say, FDR never overturned Wilson’s decision to re-segregate the federal government, If a Republican had done that, liberals would’ve written 10,000 books about it.

I'll concede that FDR was a racist, but I think Wilson has him beat by a smidgen...and so does Obama.

Now I would say that Obama is the most hostile to the US constitution since FDR as I think FDR was able to exceed Wilson in that regard. Of course none of these are awards one should want to win.

BOTH OBAMA AND OSAMA HAVE
FRIENDS WHO BOMBED THE PENTAGON

_________________________________________________________

From HumanEvents.com, April 29, 2008:
"By all accounts, he [Obama friend and associate, Bill Ayers] was a ferocious, violent, revolutionary Marxist in his halcyon days as a Weatherman leader. He and his Weatherman bombers were enamored of Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-tung -- indeed, all the murderous heroes on the Left. Referring to the Weatherman members in August 1969, he said (according to the FBI): 'We’re revolutionary Communists.'

He got off on the group’s multiple explosions, too, and discusses them rather lovingly in his memoir.

Ideal Bombing Weather:
'Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon,' he writes (although he concedes it was really a group effort). 'The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.' (p. 256 in the 2003 edition.)

BOTH OBAMA AND OSAMA HAVE
FRIENDS WHO WANTED TO BOMB FORT DIX

From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
March 6, 1970: "three members of the Weather Underground accidentally killed themselves in a Manhattan townhouse while attempting to build a powerful bomb they had intended to plant at a social dance in Fort Dix, New Jersey -- an event that was to be attended by U.S. Army soldiers. Hundreds of lives could have been lost had the plot been successfully executed."
http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid=6808

"The bomb was intended to be planted at a non-commissioned officer's dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
The bomb was packed with nails to inflict maximum casualties upon detonation."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weatherman_(organization)#Chronology_of_events
__________________________________________________

2007 Fort Dix attack plot

A group of six radical Islamist[1] men, allegedly plotting to stage an attack on the Fort Dix military base in New Jersey, United States, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on May 7, 2007. They were subsequently charged with planning an attack against U.S. soldiers. The alleged aim of the six men was said to be to "kill as many soldiers as possible".[2] Their trial began on October 20, 2008. [3]

Opening arguments were presented on October 20, 2008.
Assistant U.S. Attorney William Fitzpatrick said the defendants were inspired by jihad saying "Their motive was to defend Islam. Their inspiration was Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.

Facing certain death, they found one parachute. The rabbi and the priest gave the parachute to Rev Wright and told him to save him self. He threw it on the floor and said.... “ you can’t do that, it’s racist!”

Exactly right, although to be more precise it would be religious bigotry more then racism (which has become an all purpose word for any form of bigotry).

But what ever you want to call it, here Obama sees racism/bigotry but he and his Administration see no other Islamic hate/racism/bigotry ever, even when shouting “Allah Akbar” an Islamic guns down Fort Hood soldiers who are under Obama’s command.

Obama- beside everything else- is just a really bad guy.

This is the craziest “racist” allegation I’ve ever heard, and that’s saying a lot. At first I thought, well — yeah of course they are racist when they openly want to kill pretty much anybody of European decent who is not a Muslim. But the White House is seriously complaining that they are racist against Africans because they don’t let them climb the ladder to leadership in Al Qaeda??? So Obama would not be so upset with Al Qaeda if they would just let the blacks do the planning and not limit them to the entry level suicide bombings? Al Qaeda openly say they should kill all infidels, and we’re worried about making sure they value infidels of all races the same?
