As Egyptian Churches Are Put To the Torch, Obama’s Reputation Goes Up in Flames

As church after church is put to the torch in Egypt by members of the Muslim Brotherhood and its allies, one of the things that is going up in flames is the reputation of President Obama.

In the past 48 hours alone, some 57 Egyptian churches have been burned to the ground in the Nile valley. It will not be lost on the Egyptians that Mr. Obama has spent the crisis playing golf at Martha’s Vineyard.

Scores of Christians are being consumed in this conflagration, some burned beyond recognition defending their churches, even as Mr. Obama’s much-despised envoy in Egypt, Ambassador Patterson, still tries to effect a reconciliation between the the Muslim Brotherhood conducting this devastation and the Egyptians who revolted against the Brotherhood’s rule.

But it will show his buddies, the MB, who's side he is really on. Too bad the common low-info, drive-by voter is too stupid, ignorant and could care less to notice what is happening in Egypt.

To lose something, you have to first possess it.

The President of the United States always has the bully pulpit. Obama who views himself and the world through the prism of an aggrieved minority could have seized the opportunity to make a truly memorable speech. That Islam if it truly is a great religion, during a time of crisis would rise above the moment and give protection and solace to an aggrieved minority. That those who persecute the helpless only bring shame to their cause. Of course he could have spoken boldly but instead preferred to play golf.

Obama doesn't have a reputation to “go up in flames”. He's a Muslim Brotherhood loving, anti-Christian and Jew charlatan and murderer. The Donkeys and MSM love him. The same scum would like to murder all the Americans that disagree with Dear Leader.

Mind? Obama loves it!

People keep glossing over the fact that Obama is a radical Muslim who has been doing everything in his power to advance world domination by Islam!

Worst case Barry and his fascist pals will have to pass out nicer free cellphones and approve more full disability for people with anger management issues.

More freebies equals a better "reputation" in a country stupid enough to reelect him.

Everything else is just soooo, eighties and out of date.

“Obama’s Reputation Goes Up in Flames”

LMFAO!!
If the Media doesn’t cover it, which for the most part, they are not, (except FOX, of course, but they are crazy haters that must be ignored if you want to be “cool!”), then it won’t effect Obama one iota.

The media programming is POWERFUL, and it was ignored by Freepers who kept saying “But, the New Media will get the truth out!!”, until it was just too late.

Just tonight, I watched a CARTOON on Cartoon Network about how Religion and Gay “Deprogramming” are harmful, and only done by “those crazy religious people”.

Right now, I’m watching a CSI rerun about how a Christian School Nurse destroyed the lives of several young people by trying to prevent them from getting abortions.

Whenever I see articles like this, and there are many, I think about all the times I see Christian hate in the mainstream media, and have for years.

Most of the low information voters who aided the installation of the fiendish Obama regime probably still don’t recognize the spreading evil they’ve helped unleash on themselves, their children, their country and the free world. These Democratic Party voters can’t imagine such a thing, so pretend that the disintegration of American institutions and of other countries resulting directly by Obama’s directives are not important to them personally or won’t affect themselves or are not even real. Hillary is their cheer leader: “Hey, hey, what does it matter anyway?” The cognitive dissonance and willing, passive self-destruction of his supporters are nothing short of pathological. The election of Barack Obama was a turning point in history, like the election of Adolf Hitler, planning and assuring political havoc in place after place in a wider and wider arc.

fta “...one of the things that is going up in flames is the reputation of President Obama.”
**************************************
His reputation in flames would only create the heat of a one year old’s birthday candle, at the most.

Actually, this pretty much cements Obama’s reputation.

Outstanding!

Islam ultimately offers nothing but slavery. Christianity offers freedom as one of many graces. Its message resonates with the downtrodden who take the time to think!
