On September 11, 2001, in our time of grief, the American people came together. We offered our neighbors a hand, and we offered the wounded our blood. We reaffirmed our ties to each other, and our love of community and country. On that day, no matter where we came from, what God we prayed to, or what race or ethnicity we were, we were united as one American family.
Uh… ok, yeah, it doesn’t really matter, if you acknowledge some pray to the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Go on.
As we do, we must also reaffirm that the United States is not --- and never will be --- at war with Islam. I've made clear, just as President Bush did shortly after 9/11, that our war is not against Islam.
Yeah, that makes sense; there are Muslims who respect others’ rights and liberties and Muslim fanatics that just understand whatever they want to understand. Those are the ones you were fighting, right?
Bin Laden was not a Muslim leader; he was a mass murderer of Muslims. Indeed, al Qaeda has slaughtered scores of Muslims in many countries, including our own. So his demise should be welcomed by all who believe in peace and human dignity.
What the fuck?
Are you kidding me?
Bin Laden was an extremist Muslim who believed in Shariah law, and Al Qaeda was an extremist Sunni Muslim organization, and the fact that they killed Muslims doesn’t exempt them of being Muslims, just like the people who murder abortion doctors in their own church are just as Christians as anyone who believes in Christ. It’s their twisted way to believe, but until those deities come down and explain what they really want, they all could be correct.
Obama obviously was playing the political correct card here. Deny a fact so that everyone is happy. Well, if he had said Osama was a Muslim (which he was) there would have been more probabilities to have a plane delivered at his home. And in the same way, stating that Osama is not a Muslim makes it less probable to have crazy Muslims rioting all over the world. Because he knows, as well as most of us, that there would have been some of that. Yeah, keep the political correctness.
Let us remember that we can do these things not just because of wealth or power, but because of who we are: one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Thank you. May God bless you. And may God bless the United States of America.
And that was the icing to the cake. I think Obama was trying to appeal to everyone, his democrats who will be cheering Obama’s name, and republicans, who will love to see America’s big enemy dead and their beloved God and pledge of allegiance recognized and connected to that event. No one left to point out that Obama just kissed some major Muslim ass.
Moreover, consider that, while we were told that Osama was not a Muslim, it surfaced that he had been buried at see, “according to Islamic teachings”. So, is he or isn’t he a Muslim?
Finally, since there is no body to be shown to the public, especially considering how much many would have liked to see that, I hope there is some pretty strong evidence that this announcement was true. Otherwise, the backslash for Obama would be terrible, even though he might deserve it. So until there is more evidence that Bin Laden is actually dead, I’ll remain "agnostic" about the issue.
