Obama the Muslim

Maybe I should just make this Human Events week. The stuff they're coming up with is going in the "Classic Batshit & Lies" file forever! Here's a taste of this morning's poo stew:
Let’s see. President Obama says there is nothing more beautiful than the Muslim call to prayer in the evening. He says that the United States was not founded as a Christian nation.

Obama’s father and step-father were Muslims and he spent his childhood living in a Muslim country where his school enrollment records say his religion is Islam. As President of the United States he genuflects to the Muslim King of Saudi Arabia but not the Christian Queen of England. He thumbs his nose at America’s friends and bows to its enemies. In short, Obama quacks like a Muslim, waddles like a Muslim and acts like a Muslim, so is he a Muslim? My mother would say, “Yes! He’s a Muslim through and through.”

Growing up as a Muslim, Obama must have learned that according to the Qur’an it is acceptable to lie, deceive and live by a double standard provided in so doing one advances Islamic goals.
And I believe that's where my head about asploded. I can't even start let alone rant on this one. Very simple: If you already hate all Muslims because of right wing rhetoric, we're simply shoving Obama so deeply into that "other" that you, too, can be confident you hate him because he hates America like a terrorist and not because he's black!

I just don't know how they can get away with what is effectively libel.

Well - Limbaugh and Beck and Coulter and many others say this stuff every day to audiences of millions. That is the way with the right in America at the moment - and it will get a lot worse. It astonishes me.

Extraterrestrial Events would be a more accurate name for their outfit.

I've received a number of e-mails I consider hateful, all around this very topic.

I blame a lack of critical thinking skills.

Positioning Obama as Muslim is an old thread that’s been kicked around and unfortunately I suspect it will continue to be kicked around even after his Presidency (2nd term). Mr. Savage, you’re right on with how the right is making it easy to hate the other….
Case in point? At the end of the article they conflate Obama, Muslims, and illegal immigrants…. Hate stew anyone?

Thanks for the comments! I know it's not a new meme for the right; I guess I was just taken aback by how vitriolic and like-new it was being pushed. They should really be re-monikered from "The Party of NO" to "The Party of Hate."

Just because it's old doesn't mean we shouldn't point it out...

I'm amazed that it still gets traction... but alas, it still gets traction.
