Obama commemorates 9/11 with appeal for tolerance
AP on Yahoo ^ | 9/11/01 | Erica Werner - ap

Posted on 09/11/2010 11:19:29 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama appealed to an unsettled nation Saturday to honor the memory of the Sept. 11 attacks by hewing to the values of diversity and tolerance. "We will not sacrifice the liberties we cherish or hunker down behind walls of suspicion and mistrust," the president declared.

Speaking at the Pentagon, where nine years ago a hijacked plane smashed into the west side of the building and killed 184 people, Obama conjured a solemn remembrance of that horrible day but also spoke strongly in defense of religious freedom.

"As Americans we are not — and never will be — at war with Islam," the president said. "It was not a religion that attacked us that September day — it was al-Qaida, a sorry band of men which perverts religion."

Just once more I would like to thank the stupid idiot Aholes in America who elected this puking muzzie chicago gang land thug into office in this country. Everyone who voted for this thug is not my American brother or sister, rather I think of them as my enemy. Just like the muzzies he loves.

He’s thinking “Damn, if they only could have hit those buildings lower down. Or landed this one in the middle ring. Oh well, we’ll get them next time. Maybe an Iranian nuke from the roof of the Cordoba Victory Mosque. It’ll be ready just when they get the new towers built. Just the right height too. I’ll push that through. Heh heh.”

“Diversity and tolerance” are not values. They are tools for stifling the American people.

Does Obama look like he’s lost some weight?

He looked “diminished” when he gave his speech from the newly redecorted Offal Office.

Rush even mentioned he looked “frail” when Zero gave a speech yesterday.

Ramadan perhaps?

Barry, just shut up and go away.

I know you’re pResident and you have to go do these things or even MORE people will despise you, if that’s possible, but really.... just shut up.

You know as well as we do, since you were educated in Muslim schools, what the Koran says about non-believers or those who don’t adhere to Islamic beliefs. Don’t even try to pass off this tolerance BS with us.

We’ve been fighting to defend Muslims for two decades at the cost of thousands of American lives, limbs and countless gallons of spilled blood. That comes on top of the trillions of dollars we’ve spent on those missions.

You really are the big eared Bambi with the Wookie wife and that’s all you ever will be to any normal American. You know, even my 4 year old nephew despises you and thinks you lie. What do you think the adults in this nation believe?

Every time he opens his mouth there is some new, fresh outrage. He “honors” the dead by calling for tolerance for the people who killed them. I feel like I’m living in the flippin’ Twilight Zone.

We are at war with Islam whether we choose to admit it or not. It has been 9 years since islamic filth took down the towers.

I perceive no moderation or positive change within Islam whatsoever. Indeed, they are an implacable enemy.

I do however perceive much pukery issuing forth from the mouth of one Barack Hussein Obama, who instead of calling shame upon the Muslim Enemy Who Did This, warns us that we must not purge the filth from within our midst.

FUBO.

I wonder, now that Ramadan is over, will Obama regain the weight he appears to have lost in the past month? We will have to watch closely. I am not saying he is a Muslim...I am just saying it looks like he has been fasting. Or eating Weight Watchers meals? Or is he sick?(roll eyes) Which is it? Hmmmm

We need to tolerate an enemy of the state disguised as a religion.
We need to tolerate the activities of an enemy of the state being protected by the First Amendment.
We need to tolerate SCOTUS candidates who have no difficulty using principles of Shari'a Law in adjudicating cases.
We need to tolerate the POTUS, SOS, and cabinet members promoting the exercise of Free Speech for enemies of the state, and chastise US citizens for exercising Freedom of Speech against enemies of the state.
We need to tolerate the "slow boiling frog" of Shari'a Law infiltrating daily life in the US.
We need to tolerate military commanders, who are sworn to uphold the Constitution, to suppress First Amendment Rights of US citizens.
We need to tolerate the suppression of Christianity and Judaism as Muslims are being held up as intellectuals and heroes while bending to all of their accommodations.
We need to tolerate being bullied by US officials and enemies of the state - which is getting tougher and tougher to differentiate.

When is enough enough? Is November here yet?

His comments came on a Sept. 11 anniversary unlike others. In years past, the day was devoted to remembrances of the nearly 3,000 who .......................................... This year, the common bonds rekindled by the memory of the attacks threaten to fray amid growing suspicion of Muslims in this country and controversies about a mosque planned near ground zero in New York and a pastor's threat to burn the Muslim holy book._________ Am i reading that correctly? This year we are not remembering 3000 deaths but controversies over Muslims ,a mosque and burning of a holy book?????

That's it you POS?

After 9 years, this is what it has come to? A petulant potus named Hussein, lecturing Americans to show “tolerance”?

Let's put your wife and daughters through a virtual strip search every time you fly- just to show tolerance.

Maybe your war in Afghanistan will last long enough for your elitist children to enlist in the military - go over there and risk their lives to give ululating foaming-at-the mouth neanderthal islamists a chance to start a new culture of “tolerance”

You want tolerance? Step off a plane in Saudi Arabia and bow to the king with a Bible in your hand and your family unveiled.

FUBO
