Think Obama's a Muslim? Then you're too stupid to vote
LA Times ^ | July 27, 2012 | Paul Whitefield

Posted on 07/31/2012 11:12:01 AM PDT by hiho hiho

Forget voter ID laws. What this country needs are laws to keep stupid people from voting.

Now, I’m not talking about folks who can’t recite the preamble to the Constitution, or who can’t tell you what the 1st Amendment covers, or how many Supreme Court justices there are. I’ll even exempt those poor souls who don’t know who the first president was, or can’t name the two houses of Congress, or don’t know the name of their representative.

But, if you were to show up at the polls in November, and the poll worker were to ask you “Is President Obama a Muslim or a Christian?” and you answered “Muslim,” then — bzzzzzt — you’d be automatically disqualified from voting, on the grounds you’re just too dumb.

I am quite capable of saying he’s Old Order Amish, if that’s the official narrative and my voting rights depend on it.

Just like I wrote an “A” paper or two on evolution in HS biology oh so long ago...

sure, as long as anyone who believes that raising taxes will help jump start the economy should also be disqualified from voting for being a retard along with anyone who has received any government assistance within the past 4 years.

Christian he is not. I think most people realized that after their introduction to Reverend Wright.

The real point is Obama thinks WE are all stupid—too stupid to know that he really is a Muslim and furthermore, is not eligible to hold the office he currently occupies.

Neither. He's a Marxist.

he can recite the call to prayer in perfect arabic, and said it was “the most beautiful sound on earth”,

first phone call was to muslims nation, and first overseas trip was a muslim apology tour,

told NASA to stop going out into space but create a muslim outreach program,

told the president or some muslim country he was a muslim,

has said that “when push comes to shove, [he] will side with the muslims”,

celebrates ramadan, but not Easter,

has no idea what a “Christmas wishing tree” is,

orders all crucifix's to be COVERED when he speaks at a Christian College

He was raised Muslim.

His adult worship was primarily at the Jerry Wright Palace of Hate - heaven knows what denomination that was.

I think he’s a hard left materialist myself.

The LA Times guy is probably a hard left materialist too.

But if Republicans want me to produce a photo ID to prove I’m the same person who’s been voting for four decades, then Democrats have the right to demand some basic level of intelligence from the other side.

Aside from the fact that this is an apples and oranges argument, it takes some level of basic intelligence to know that the lack of a photo ID is not proof of identity.

So a guy with a ex-Moslem father, a Moslem step-father, and who had his religion listed as “Muslim” when enrolled in school in Indonesia, can’t possibly be a Moslem?
Even after mis-statements like “my Muslim faith” and “57 states” or that comment about the call to worship by the muezzin being the most beautiful sound in the world?

Well, at the very least, after sitting in Rev. Wright’s pews, we know he isn’t Christian.

Three points:

1) obama is not a muslim nor a Christian, but an atheist. To him there is no higher power than himself.
2) But if we limit the alternatives to Christianity and islam, you can certainly build a much better case that he is muslim.
3) Furthermore, if I am ever polled on this question, I will answer that he is muslim just becauses it really pi$$es off liberals, as is so well illustrated by this article.

Of course you’re not talking about those folks, because those folks are the ones too ignorant to know why the rest of us, who do know all those things, suspect Obama is a Muslim.

It really doesn't matter what we believe about Obama's true religion.
Whatever diety he may or may not worship.

But it does matter what muslims themselves believe.
And Obama has convinced the entire muslim world that he is one of them.

As in all things Obama, he says one thing but his actions belie his words.

If, like Obama, a man walks like a muslim, acts like a muslim, demonstrates
favoritism to muslims and praises Islam, do not his actions speak for him?

Nice try at ridiculing the truth, Mr. Whitefield.

you’re too stupid to write a newspaper article.

Of course he’s Muslim—he admitted it to George Stephanpoulus.

And he was in a black Muslim “church” for twenty years. And Mr. Wright’s best bud is Screwy Louie Farrahkan, the Jew hater.

Now,Mr. whitefield. Why don’t you do something useful, like find the tape your newspaper has sequestered of Zippy’s speech to that Muslim group in 2008.

Yeah, that tape.

You tools are so transparent.

Yes, Mr. Whitefield, I -do- think he’s a Muslim.

And I never considered myself to be all that bright, but…
… that’s not my problem, even if you believe it’s yours.

I’m voting anyway.
(Even though you would prefer that the dumb folks like me be prevented from voting. By the way, Mr. Whitefield, we used to have laws designed to do exactly what you wish for. They were called “literacy tests”, and were declared unconstitutional, with the guarantee that my “stupid” vote will count as much as your “smart”[ass] one does!)

“But if Republicans want me to produce a photo ID to prove I’m the same person who’s been voting for four decades, then Democrats have the right to demand some basic level of intelligence from the other side.”

Qualifications for voting are: age and citizenship.

If you want to start administering “intellegence” standards for voting, people should bring the their IQ test results. Let’s see who gets disqualified, then. Oh, wait, that’s racist.]

Obama is obviously too stupid to vote, by this standard. But not too stupid to be POTUS. God knows that we expect less of the man who holds the nuclear football than we expect of the janitor cleaning out Congress’ toilets.

For instance, the janitor would have to provide documentation of his/her citizenship in order to be hired. And if it’s a man he would have to be registered for the draft.

By contrast, the man who holds the nuclear football has spent a LOT of money making sure he didn’t have to provide documentation, actually provided from the White House what is now confirmed as a forged birth certificate, and has accidentally had the State of Hawaii indirectly confirm that the birth record they have for him is not legally valid - which means that he has no legally-determined birth facts whatsoever, and nobody can legally say when, where, or to whom he was born.

Forget voter ID laws. What this country needs are laws to keep stupid people from voting.

Stupid people think that a man raised by an agnostic mother who instilled in her son a "healthy skepticism of organized religion", 2 muslim fathers, and Uniterian grandmother is a Christian. He said to well heeled donors (in private) that those in flyover country cling to "God" and guns. He might tell some voters some things his left-wing base doesn't agree with, but it was just a lot of shucking and jiving to get votes in Middle America.

I never thought he was Muslim; he is an Obamist. He sees his Messiah every morning when he looks in the mirror, a manifestation of his narcissistic personality disorder.

I do believe, however, that he favors Islam, out of a childhood attachment to that faith from his Indonesian upbringing, and that he despises Judiasm accordingly.

You believed he was eligible, you believed he was qualified, you believed all the stories in his books.

If his father really is Barack Obama (a moslem) then Steve Barry Hussein Soebarkah Soetoro Dunham Obama....is a moslem.

To: Little Ray

Maybe the LA Times needs to phrase it this way:

Is Obama still a Muslim, or is he an apostate Muslim who must be executed according to the sharia law supported by US Rep Keith Ellison, Louis Farrakhan, and all Muslims?

Seems like the fact that Muslims are not calling for Obama’s head says they know he is practicing taqiyya - lying for the sake of advancing the Muslim agenda.

And Obama’s own comments to the Egyptian ambassador in January of 2010 come in here also. He said he was and still is a Muslim who supports the Muslim agenda, and that the Muslim world needed to be patient with him while he shoved Obamacare down our throats here (which, I might add, indirectly establishes a dhimmi tax from which Muslims are exempt) and then he would start on the Muslim agenda. The agenda which all sects of Islam agree on are the destruction of the US and Israel and the institution of worldwide sharia. You have only to look at the progress made on BOTH those Muslim goals, and Obama’s role in accomplishing those things, to know where his loyalties truly lie.

Does he really believe Islam? Probably not. But he is the tool of those who do, and their allies such as George Soros, who says he wants the US to lose the war on terror so that capitalism and America will not be strong. Obama is most likely an atheist puppet, but the people controlling the puppet are communist and Islamist.

Before the 2008 election there was a “Law Enforcement Truth Squad” in Missouri which promised to stop anybody from “misrepresenting” Obama publicly. Specifically, they were looking to snuff out two claims: that Obama was Muslim, and that he would raise taxes. Obamacare has been ruled by SCOTUS to be a tax. Did Obama raise taxes? That should be blatantly obvious to everybody. Now look at the radical Islamist Muslim Brotherhood regimes taking over the Middle East, consider how Obama supported those takeovers, and ask yourself why this is the other question the “Truth Squad” wanted to snuff out.

What is blatantly obvious to all should make it very clear why Obama wanted to distance himself from both high taxes and Islam. But no matter how the wolf puts the sheepskin on, those ears just keep sticking out for all to see...
