Obama praises Muslim immigrants for helping build America
washingtonexaminer.com ^ | 7/26/13 | PAUL BEDARD

Posted on 07/27/2013 8:30:06 AM PDT by ColdOne

Hosting Muslim officials and business leaders at a State Dining Room dinner, Obama said, "Throughout our history, Islam has contributed to the character of our country, and Muslim Americans, and their good works, have helped to build our nation — and we've seen the results. We've seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants — farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities. Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped to unlock the secrets of our universe."

Considering how they destroyed some of our “highest skyscrapers” on 9-11, should he really have mentioned that particular item????? Which I also would challenge him if that’s really true in the first place.

Irish moslems or Chinese moslems? I believe the first moslems came to the US about 1900, after most railroads were built.

How many “Muslim farmers” are there in America? How many Muslim farmers have there ever been in America??

You would swear that Muslims lined up en masse to go settle the west when the Homestead Act was passed in the 19th century.

Does this president even know history????

Now, now, there were at least 3, perhaps 4, Muslims being recruited by Slim Pickens and Harvey Korman in the bad man line up in Blazing Saddles. Maybe that is where the pResident saw them.

His remarks missed one important fact.

Hosting Muslim officials and business leaders at a State Dining Room dinner, Obama said, "Throughout our history, Islam has contributed to the destruction of our country, and Muslim Americans, and their works, have helped to destroy our nation — and we've seen the results. We've seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants —No farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities. Muslim innovators who helped blow up some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped to unlock the secrets of what we know of a 1300 year old stale religion which has no place in good things. ."

There! Fixed it!

Throughout our history, Islam has contributed to the character of our country

It is certain that some Muslims were imported as slaves, mainly during colonial times.

Muslim Africans from the Senegal/Gambia region were especially prized by the rice planters of SC and GA, since the farming techniques used in those colonies were basically copied from their homelands.

But specific influence or leadership positions, nonsense.

The muslims are responsible for the building of the USS Constitution because without the Barbary Pirates we would not have needed as much of a Navy.

Maybe a “community organizer” has no idea if there’s a difference between “build” and “destroy.”

Yes, let’s give credit where it’s due. The muslims played a crucial role in establishing the US Marine Corps very early in this country’s history.

Railroads? Really? Seems to me the rails were laid mostly by Irish or Chinese immigrants. Obama does not mind dissing the real workers to kiss up.

This is historical revisionism at its worst. Since Obama is a lifelong liar, he feels that he can just lie about Muslim history and some of his lies will be accepted by the people who believe his other lies.

Every little bit helps when you are trying to destroy America.

Okay. While he looks us in the eye and says, "You didn't build that". Now he says the Muslims helped build this nation.

The first muzzleman (later may have converted to Christianity) to enter what is now the continental US was ESTEVAN THE MOOR.

Black, former moslem, from Morocco. He promptly offended the Indians so they killed him.

Come to think of it I had a distant cousin named Rashid Ohara. And he had a friend named Mohammed Yuan Yang. :-)

When is somebody credible going to stand up and tell the truth that Muslims produce nothing, invent nothing and contribute almost nothing to the world except ignorance and terrorism?

Throughout our history, Islam has contributed to the character of our country,

After the Constitution was adopted, the first nation to declare war on America was a mohammedan country (Barbary Coast). Mohammedans declared war on America twice in 1996 and 1998 and we are still at war with them.

Take out word "Muslim" and make it "American".

Obama would rather choke himself before he would do that.

He truly hates America.

America has a Muslim, with a bad attitude towards America, in the White House.
