Skip to comments.Madonna causes confusion by referring to President Barack Obama as a Muslim

In a video posted on YouTube by audience members at the concert, the singer delivers a rousing, profanity-laced political speech on freedom during her show.
"Now, it's so amazing and incredible to think that we have an African-American in the White House ... we have a black Muslim in the White House ... it means there is hope in this country, and Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man," Madonna said.
Mr Obama, who stands for re-election on Nov 6, is Christian.
Madonna said later: "I was being ironic on stage. Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim - though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were?
"The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don't care what religion Obama is - nor should anyone else in America."
Since Obama's first presidential run in 2007, fringe groups and a scattering of opponents have promoted rumours that he is Muslim, similar to talk that he is not a natural-born US citizen.
Madonna has been outspoken in her support of the president. According to media reports, at Monday's show and at a New York City concert earlier this month she ripped off her shirt to reveal the word OBAMA inked across her lower back.
The singer, 54,.....

Madonna Performs at NYCs Yankee Stadium, Sept. 6, 2012
Madonna strips for Obama, offers profanity-laced endorsement "....Later in the show, Madonna took off her shirt and pulled down her pants to show she had OBAMA written in all capital letters across her lower back.
When Obama is in the White House for a second term I'll take it all off, she said to cheers and whistles from the audience.
She then began singing a slow, seductive version of Like a Virgin while rolling around on a piano top......"
I don’t think she understands the definition of ironic.
Sometimes I think Madonna says and does stuff just to maintain the appearance of being a far out leftist looney toon because the money is so good and she’s probably not the only one.
She may not care if Obama is a liar, but I do. If Obama actually worships anything other than himself (unlikely), and it's not Jesus (VERY likely), I object to his dishonesty. At least among conservatives, integrity is considered a virtue, not that Madonna would know that word.
I would be happy (thrilled compared with Obama!) to have a patriotic democrat like the late William Proxmire in our White House instead of a bigoted socialist like Obama. I would have no objection to a Jewish president like Joe Lieberman, who may be moderately liberal but at least means well for America. Obama is neither a good man nor a good American, and our country will not be safe until he is out of power, if we will ever be safe.
Good thing Obama is going to lose.
Washed up commie skank rattling cages again. Her kids must be embarrassed!
Nah, I'd be willing to bet they want to grow up and be just like mom.
The problem with Brit media is not one of bias, but often simply stating things which are patently false. obie is a muzzie. That's a fact, Jack.
I wonder if that worn out ...um... entertainer even suspects that under Islamic law she would be stoned for who and what she is? Or that the REAL “WAR ON WOMEN” involves that trait she recognizes in our President, that being he is a Muslim.
She obviously isn’t that smart.
She embaresses me. Madonna is a year up from me and she is trying to find her “lost youth”.
It was all confirmed yesterday by Obama’s speech yesterday at the UN. He is a Muslim or one who supports the Muslims.
Ever watch "The Morning Joe"?
No, my British friends, she caused no confusion because no one listens to her anymore.
No confusion. For once, the Grandmother got it right.
Madonna was crazy about Gen Wesley Clark for his military leadership in 2004, calling him “a perfect example of the American dream” and going all out with personal meetings, donations, letters, web site appeals etc. A tepid “endorsement” (if that) of Obama indeed when the talking points are reduced to “good man” and “don’t discriminate.”
This is more of a endorsement of gay marriage aimed at her most loyal fan base. I doubt even she expects him to win. IMO.
What’s the problem? Her statement sounds factually correct to me.
I thought she lives in England...and also she went to Israel and became a Jew? The women is going through “the change” and doesn’t know what’s coming out of her filthy mouth.
If anyone listened to her, this would be more CLARIFICATION than “confusion”.
The left/media are SO obvious in their attempt to cover up 0bama’s cultural and religious sympathies.
A house divided cannot stand.
I wouldn’t be so sure. People vote for a lot of reasons. At least this got people thinking and talking. Her fans are super critical and can ridicule over the top statements or antics as good as anyone here.
What the hell is the confusion she was right.
Didn’t she move to England, become Kabbalist, and change her name to “Edith”?
Obvious is not “ironic.”
Somebody wrote Obama on that dead fish.
Confuesd? Well, now I am. Why would anyone think he isn't a Muslim?
As Archie would say....Edith, stiffle yourself....
She is very smart (the mother of mixed messages) AND a dedicated Kaballist voting for gay marriage (fans who pay the bills...lol) NOT Islamic law.
That would be “Esther” as in the Biblical entity, of course...
