Obama: Muslims Built 'The Very Fabric of Our Nation'
Brietbart ^ | 28 July 2014 | Robert Wilde

Posted on 07/29/2014 6:44:51 AM PDT by maddog55

On Sunday, President Obama and First Lady Michelle released a statement thanking Muslim Americans for their many “achievements and contributions… to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.”

The comments were made to mark the celebration of Eid-al-Fitr, a time of spiritual renewal for Muslims which comes at the end of the month-long fast of Ramadan. The Obamas said in their statement that Eid “celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity” and “welcomed their commitment to giving back to their communities.” The International Business Times reports that during Eid, Muslims join in Islamic prayer, while saying "Allahu Akbar," or "God is Great," and feasting.

The 1970 census showed only 100,000 Muslims in the Untied States. What a shame that we went out of our way to invite and coddle with absurd lies a belief system which is incompatible with self-governance.

I guess he's still all weeded up? I am beginning to wonder if this bunch has any concept of reality? Who were the Muslim signers of the Declaration if Independence?

What makes me the angriest, is no one calls them on this crap. They just report it.

Now that I think about it, isn’t this what Jihadist think about every region they seek to add to their death cult - they built it, so its rightly theirs?

Come to think of it, Obama’s ancestors probably did capture and sell at a profit, their fellow Africans into Slavery bound for The Colonies in what is now the USA.

My next door neighbor is a Muslim - nice guy, has a good job, but his house is falling down around my own. No paint, no lawn mower in evidence and he just put an old toilet on my side of the yard. Great view. Building that fabric...

Hard to understand how Obama can be that stupid, ignorant and un-American. He needs much medical help. Or perhaps a ticket to another planet.

Yep, is is just astounding. I have felt for a long time that the rats are having a contest to see who can say the dumbest, most outrageous, biggest lie.

Or they really are as dumb as a box of hammers. Can't decide.

Notice that in his Christmas statements, Obama never even mentions Christianity, never mind acknowledging its role in building the very fabric of our naiton.


THE PRESIDENT: Hello everybody, and happy holidays.

THE FIRST LADY: We know how busy this time of year is for everyone, so we’re not going to take much of your time. But we did want to take a moment to wish you all a Merry Christmas, from our family to yours.

THE PRESIDENT: This is a season for millions of Americans to be together with family, to continue long-held holiday traditions, and to show our gratitude to those we love. And along the way, some of us might even watch a little basketball or eat some Christmas cookies, too.

THE FIRST LADY: Here at the White House, over the past few weeks, we’ve had about 70,000 people from all across the country come visit us and look at our holiday decorations.

This year’s theme was “Gather Around: Stories of the Season.”

And in every room of the house, we tried to tell a story about who we are as Americans and how we celebrate the holidays together.

And we made certain to highlight some of the most powerful stories we know – the stories of our outstanding troops, veterans, and military families and their service and sacrifice for our country.

THE PRESIDENT: Our extraordinary men and women in uniform are serving so that the rest of us can enjoy the blessings we cherish during the holidays. But that means many of our troops are far from home and far from family. They’re spending some extra time on the phone with their loved ones back home. Or they’re setting up video chats so they can watch as the presents are opened. So today, we want all of our troops to know that you’re in our thoughts and prayers this holiday season.

And here’s the good news: For many of our troops and newest veterans, this might be the first time in years that they’ve been with their families on Christmas. In fact, with the Iraq war over and the transition in Afghanistan, fewer of our men and women in uniform are deployed in harm’s way than at any time in the last decade.

THE FIRST LADY: And that’s something we all can be thankful for.

And with more and more of our troops back here at home, now it’s our turn to serve – it’s our turn to step up and show our gratitude for the military families who have given us so much.

And that’s why Jill Biden and I started our Joining Forces initiative – to rally all Americans to support our military families in ways large and small.

And again and again, we have been overwhelmed by the response we’ve gotten as folks from across the country have found new ways to give back to these families through their schools, businesses, and houses of worship.

THE PRESIDENT: That’s the same spirit of giving that connects all of us during the holidays. So many people all across the country are helping out at soup kitchens, buying gifts for children in need, or organizing food or clothing drives for their neighbors. For families like ours, that service is a chance to celebrate the birth of Christ and live out what He taught us – to love our neighbors as we would ourselves; to feed the hungry and look after the sick; to be our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper. And for all of us as Americans, regardless of our faith, those are values that can drive us to be better parents and friends, better neighbors and better citizens.

THE FIRST LADY: So as we look to the New Year, let’s pledge ourselves to living out those values by reaching out and lifting up those in our communities who could use a hand up.

THE PRESIDENT: So Merry Christmas, everyone. And from the two of us, as well as Malia, Sasha, Grandma, Bo…

THE FIRST LADY: And Sunny, the newest Obama.

THE PRESIDENT: We wish you all a blessed and safe holiday season.

THE FIRST LADY: Happy holidays everybody, and God bless.

Besides the mandated photo-op, Barack never praises Christians, Christianity and Christian Holidays.

Then when he does, he always has to shout out at his muslims friends in some kind of equivalency.

I was once president of my little condo before buying a house. Within 5 minutes, I was accused of being a Nazi for asking somebody to take down their gay flag which was not allowed under the by-laws. Great learning experience. I now refuse to get involved in anybody elses business - whether it’s gay flags or toilets. Quiet and peace of mind are so much better than neat lawns and symmetrical balconies...

Who were the Muslim signers of the Declaration if Independence?

Mohammed al-Ibrihaim Hancock

Achmed Mohemmed Jefferson

Habib Mohammed-MohemmedMuhumid Adams

The other were closet Muslims

Didn't you learn this in government school?

Put aside the more sensational aspects of these statements. I just don’t get them on a basic level. How did Muslims “build” this nation? They have not been a part of its history until very recently. The statement is complete, unthinking nonsense. A meaningless platitude.

I might think he was just lazy, but the toilet makes me think he is doing it purposely. I’d watch out for this turkey. No home owners??
