About. Friggin’. Time.

These optics suck, White House! I mean we have 4 Americans who are dead who were butchered and slaughtered because this administration did not have the foresight to fortify these embassies on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11. And there he is with all of his fanbois and fangirls in Vegas raising money while they scream ‘I love you!’ in the middle of an international crisis.
But hey, it’s ROMNEY’S STATEMENT that is drawing MSM scrutiny, right? Effin’ lapdog media.
Oh. My. Allah. You’ve got to be bleeping kidding me!
Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation’s Armed Forces at home.
During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as workplace violence. She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.
If bloodthirsty camelhumping jihadists don’t kill us first, political correctness will.
Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch are nowhere in sight. But there’s Elmo. And new creatures too, like Baily, a kindly donkey who loves to sing, and Haseen O Jameel, a vain crocodile who lives at the bottom of a well.
Sesame Street is coming to Pakistan but not as generations of Americans know it.
The TV show has a new cast of local characters led by a vivacious 6-year-old girl named Rani who loves cricket and traditional Pakistani music. Her sidekick, Munna, is a 5-year-old boy obsessed with numbers and banging away on Pakistani bongo drums, or tabla.
The U.S. is bankrolling the initiative with $20 million, hoping it will improve education in a country where one-third of primary school-age children are not in class. Washington also hopes the program will increase tolerance at a time when the influence of radical views is growing.
“One of the key goals of the show in Pakistan is to increase tolerance toward groups like women and ethnic minorities,” said Larry Dolan, who was the head education officer for the U.S. Agency for International Development in Pakistan until very recently.
Hey, why not? I mean, they’ll listen to Allah when it comes to blowing themselves and infidels up; but once they get a load of Elmo and Haseen the Crocodile telling them to respect everyone and not self-detonate, then these heretofore loyal-to-the-death jihadists will tell Allah to go pound sand. “Sorry, God, but puppets have told us that you’re full of crap.”
Because while the fear of death is nonexistent as a deterrent to commit murder, the guilt of having saddened Baily the Talking Donkey is more than they can bear. Brilliant, B.O.
And no, I’m not saying I think B.O. is a Muslim. I think it’s pretty clear that Barry O worships a deity that he holds to be much higher than God, Allah, or any other deity…and that deity is Barack Hussein Obama.
But here’s what I mean: while the NYT is giving a virtual full cavity search to all GOP candidates about their religious backgrounds, such a vetting of then-candidate Obama’s faith just didn’t happen. Oh, sure, they did the obligatory “Obama went to Rev. Wright’s church” bit, but that was it. But here’s what the head honcho at the Old Gray Hag is saying these days:
This year’s Republican primary season offers us an important opportunity to confront our scruples about the privacy of faith in public life — and to get over them. We have an unusually large number of candidates, including putative front-runners, who belong to churches that are mysterious or suspect to many Americans. Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman are Mormons, a faith that many conservative Christians have been taught is a “cult” and that many others think is just weird. (Huntsman says he is not “overly religious.”) Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum are all affiliated with fervid subsets of evangelical Christianity, which has raised concerns about their respect for the separation of church and state, not to mention the separation of fact and fiction.
Notice that Keller thinks that it is WE Christians who must “get over” our “scruples about the privacy of faith in public life”? Let that sink in. We need to “get over” our scruples? I guess when you’re a liberal and have no scruples (pardon the redundancy), then you think it’s automatic that everyone else is without scruples, too.
Also notice that Keller lets the mask slip: “not to mention the separation of fact and fiction”. Because to liberals like Keller, belief in God is belief in fiction. Funny, because while Keller finds Santorum’s Catholic background to be a “fervid subset of evangelical Christianity”, Keller himself is an alleged Roman Catholic himself! If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that Keller was a bit sloppy on his research here. Yeah, I know, how crazy of me to think the MSM is lazy in doing its job!
Well, at least the NYT is consistent with its contempt for all faiths. Hmm? What’s that? Oh, that’s right…
Among a dreary Republican field, Herman Cain stands out for using religious bigotry to gain political traction for his presidential ambitions.
Mr. Cain, a former pizza executive, started a few months ago by telling a reporter that he would not be comfortable with a Muslim in his cabinet. During a televised debate last month, he said his discomfort was due to the intention of some Muslims “to kill us.”
To recap: Muslims are not crazy and are beyond questioning, but Christians are crazy and need to be thoroughly
scourged questioned. Got it. Thanks for the clarification.
See, when you have conservative candidates that are seemingly genuine in practicing their Christian faith and don’t modify it to fit with politically correct orthodoxy, the NYT and the rest of their MSM ilk find such candidates to be disturbing. But when you have a leftist who supposedly comes from the same religion as these conservatives, yet said leftist bastardizes and mutates that religion to be more politically correct, then the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) are absolutely cool with it. It doesn’t matter that the God constructed by Obama and Keller doesn’t exist…just so long as they don’t have to look at people like me who worships the God that does exist. Keller is cool with B.O. worshiping a false God, but he loathes Normal Americans who worship the true God.
Nope…no liberal media bias!
Muslim soldier, hailed by CNN, who went AWOL for refusing deployment to Afghanistan arrested in Fort Hood for trying to make explosives
Boy, CNN sure does know how to pick ‘em, right?
Last year, CNN reported on a Muslim soldier serving in our military who refused to be deployed to Afghanistan due to his Muslim upbringing. CNN gave this guy the full Lewinsky treatment, gushing over his alleged “bravery” and humanity for not wanting to kill people.
Police in Central Texas have caught an AWOL Muslim soldier from Fort Campbell, Ky., at a motel in the city near Fort Hood after he asked how to build explosives at a gun store.
A law enforcement official told CBS News that Pfc. Naser Abdo’s questions about explosives and how to build them made the gun store employee suspicious. When police questioned Abdo at his motel, he made references to a plan to kill or injure people, the official said.
On top of that, the goathumper is a pedophile. Again, kudos to CNN for featuring the savory types amongst us.
If Islamonuts like this guy don’t kill us, political correctness will.
Exit question: Did this jihadist nutbar not stop and ask himself “You know, I wonder if it might not be a good idea to be a Muslim sniffing around a TX gun store for info on how to blow stuff up?” Seriously, Mohammed…Texas?
Janet “Nappy” Napolitano is our guard dog. God help us. Excerpt:
A new promotional video released by the Department of Homeland Security characterizes white middle class Americans as the most likely terrorists, as Big Sis continues its relentless drive to cement the myth that mad bombers are hiding around every corner, when in reality Americans are just as likely to be killed by lightning strikes or peanut allergies.
Despite encouraging viewers not to pay attention to a person’s race in determining whether or not they may be a terrorist, almost all of the scenarios in the clip proceed to portray white people as the most likely terrorists. Bizarrely, nearly every single one of the “patriotic” Americans who reports on their fellow citizen is either black, Asian or Arab. Imagine if the video had portrayed every terrorist as an Arab and every patriotic snoop as white, there’d be an outcry and rightly so, but this strange reversal must have been deliberate on the part of the DHS, but why? Is this merely political correctness taken to the extreme or is something deeper at work?
Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the DHS’ own internal documents list predominantly white conservative groups as the most likely terrorists, such as Ron Paul supporters, gun owners, gold bullion enthusiasts, and a myriad of other comparatively banal political interests that are largely the domain of white middle class Americans.

I can see why she’d be focused on rednecks from Possum Hump, TN. I mean, they practically fit the terrorist profile to a tee:
The passengers sat stunned as they watched a man walk quickly toward the front of American Airlines Flight 1561 as it was descending toward San Francisco. He was screaming and then began pounding on the cockpit door.
“I kept saying to myself: ‘What’s he doing? Does he have a bomb? Is he armed?’” passenger Angelina Marty said.
Within moments Sunday, a flight attendant tackled Rageh Almurisi. Authorities do not yet have a motive.
While authorities said that Almurisi, 28, of Vallejo, Calif., has no clear or known ties to terrorism, the incident underscored fears that extremists may try to mount attacks to retaliate for the death of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden last week.
Federal agents are investigating Almurisi’s background. He was carrying a Yemeni passport and a California identification card, authorities said.
…Marty, 35, recalled that she and other passengers on the plane were stunned when they saw Almurisi walking down the aisle. She said a woman in a row across from her who speaks Arabic translated that Almurisi said “God is Great!” in Arabic.
Andrew Wai, another passenger, told KGO-TV on Monday that the wife of one of the men who took Almurisi down later said Almurisi was yelling “Allahu Akbar.”
“There was no question in everybody’s mind that he was going to do something,” Marty said.
A male flight attendant tackled Almurisi, and other crew members and passengers, including a retired Secret Service agent and a retired San Mateo police officer, helped subdue him as he banged on the door, police said. The flight attendant put plastic handcuffs on him.
Missing from the story is any mention of Islam or a Muslim background. I’m probably bigoted just for making that observation. I will go flail myself now to appease the P.C.
gods goddesses deities. The flight attendant and crew members who subdued the man will probably be investigated by Nappy Napolitano for their right-wing extremism any day now.
Let’s see: Yemeni passport; speaking in Arabic; shouting “Allahu Akbar”, words that normally proceed acts of jihadism; trying to commandeer an airplane. If only there were some common or connecting bond…
But wait! The sleuths at the AP have it figured out!
“He might have seriously mistaken the cockpit for the bathroom,” Almoraissi said. “He’s only been on three planes in his whole life.” Almurisi was taking classes in California to learn English but was not happy with his progress, his cousin said.
Oh. My. Word.
Ah, yes. I mean, normally when I’ve really got to pinch a loaf, I bolt for the john screaming “Praise Jesus!” Who among us hasn’t broken out into a chorus of “Amazing Grace” while our bowels rumbled? You know, if I had a nickel for every time I had to tap a kidney I yelled “God is awesome!”, I would…um…not even have a nickel.
Nope…no liberal media bias!
B.O. in 2009: Let’s release those photos detailing alleged abuse by American soldiers.
BO in 2011: I’m not releasing photos of Osama’s stinking corpse.
What’s that, Mr. President? The photos are “very graphic”? So was watching people jump to their deaths from the blazing Twin Towers, you hyperactive condescending nanny. About ten years ago, we had a national traumatic experience as we all watched thousands of people die before our very eyes when the towers collapsed. Since then, we’ve seen Daniel Pearl beheaded, Madrid subway cars blown up, London buses and trains blown up, Bali nightclubs blown up, a Beslan school turned into a massacre site. We’ve seen enough death and dismemberment of innocent civilians to last a lifetime. So pardon me for thinking that our delicate sensibilities might be able to handle seeing the man with more American blood on his hands than anyone else on the planet missing an eye and with some brain matter exposed.
What’s that? It might be “an incitement to additional violence”? Show me one extremist Muslim who’s not going to go into a violent rage over killing bin Laden, but who will do so if he sees the photos. Go out and find him. A few weeks ago, a bunch of Afghanis went on a rampage and killed a bunch of aid workers because Pastor Pyro down in Florida decided to flame-broil a Koran. A controversial book, a cartoon, the latest conspiracy theory — it doesn’t matter. These guys are just looking for excuses to run around and kill people in a frenzy.
I am tired of my government’s adjusting its policies in these inane attempts to placate the triggers of rage among unstable people — as if it’s our fault for provoking them.
Apparently, releasing photos that may portray America in a bad light and may endanger our war-on-terrorism goals is fine and dandy. But releasing photos that don’t portray America in a bad light is verboten. Got it. Thanks for the clarification.
It was said in 2009 that while bloodthirsty camelhumping Islamonuts would get whipped into yet another frothing frenzy after seeing the photos, we absolutely had to release them. But now we can’t release photos of OBL with a hidey-hole in his gourd because…bloodthirsty camelhumping Islamonuts would get whipped into yet another frothing frenzy?
The U.S. government under Barack Obama is deeply committed to battling any belittlement, criticism, or questioning of Islam. (“I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States,” he said, “to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”)
At the same time, however, it is OK, in the Obama regime [SEE BELOW FOR AN UPDATE], for the U.S. government to burn Bibles. Yes, that’s right. Bibles were sent to U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. But the U.S. government determined that the presence of Bibles in this “devoutly Muslim country” might inflame the natives. So they burned them. Why did they burn them? Because it is military policy to burn its trash.
So, the Bibles, according to U.S. policy, are trash, garbage, and it’s OK to burn them.
When it comes to the Koran, however, an official Department of Defense memo specifies a rather different procedure. Item 4, “Handling”:
- Clean gloves will be put on in full view of the detainees prior to handling.
- Two hands will be used at all times when handling the Koran in manner signaling respect and reverence. Care should be used so that the right hand is the primary one used to manipulate any part of the Koran due to the cultural association with the left hand. Handle the Koran as if it were a fragile piece of delicate art.
Isn’t that nice? Handle it “as if it were a fragile piece of delicate art.” But burn the Bible because it is just part of your trash.
If jihadism doesn’t kill us, political correctness will.
I’m not worried. Why? Because I’m but a mere nomad on this mudball in this lifetime, biding my time until God calls me to my real and eternal Home. Those of you who aren’t so sure, though? Well, sucks for you.
I’ve always said that leftists are impervious to facts and consistency. They are hypocrites and liars, and shamefully so. They lose no sleep over their sociopathic tendencies. They have no remorse for being the morally bankrupt vermin that they are.
So, away we go…
With the bodies of the AZ shooting victims not even cold yet, the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) were quick to jump on the “Palin/Tea Party/Beck/Limbaugh/Hannity/right winger du jour” bandwagon. As I pointed out in the last post, CNN had no trouble asking viewers to withhold judgment about the Ft. Hood shooter’s Muslim fanatic background being part of his motive. However, CNN had no trouble passing near immediate judgment on an ideology with which they are opposed, as well as important figures in said ideology.
Such hypocrisy and political correctness wasn’t limited to CNN. The Old Gray Hag blamed the right, nearly a year after pleaing for calmer heads to prevail with regards to the Ft. Hood Islamofascist shooting.
Now, we’re beginning to get some details on the shooter. Deranged wingnut? Hardly.
- “Left-wing pothead, quite liberal, political radical”;
- Registered independent;
- His favorite books are those frequently found on any libtard bookshelf: Mein Kampf and the Communist Manifesto;
- 9/11 Truther.
I guess since the left guessed wrong on…
- the Discovery Channel hostage taker, who was motivated by Al Gore’s An Incovenient Truth (but we righties properly dismissed that, recognizing that the dude was just nuts, period);
- the NYC Muslim cabbie stabbing, where the perp was a left-wing activist;
- the attempted firebombing of Democrat Congressman Russ Carnahan’s office, where the perp was a liberal blogger;
- the failed Times Square bombing, where the perp was a camelhumping Islamonut instead of the Teap Partier mad about ObamaCare (a theory floated by Mayor Bloomberg);
- the suicide pilot who hit the Austin IRS building, where the perp was a commie (i.e. a leftie);
- and now, the AZ shooter…
…they figure that they’re bound to get one right eventually. I guess it’s possible, just as it’s possible that with all the wrong lotto numbers I pick, I’m bound to get them all right eventually. Right? Right???
They always peg these acts of lunacy and barbarism on the right. They’re wrong every d#mned time. Since they’re the ones who are much more prone to violence, I’m thinking that their hollow accusations against us for behavior that they themselves perpetrate is merely a case of projection on their part.
But we’re not going to let them get away with it, just like we didn’t let them get away with forcing their sick, undesirable agenda on Normal America last November.
When she’s not busy wishing AIDS-related deaths on Jesse Helms and his offspring, National
Pinko Propaganda Public Radio’s Nina Totenberg likes to spend the time apologizing for offending people by uttering the vulgar phrase often used this time of year: Christmas! Oh, the horror!
“I was at – forgive the expression – a Christmas party,” NPR reporter Nina Totenberg interjected on Inside Washington in the weekend’s oddest cautionary separation from a common description for a common event, seemingly embarrassed to invoke any religious terminology for Christmas. She didn’t say what she’d prefer for parties this time of the year to be named. “Winter solstice party”? Just plain old “holiday party”? Or a “seasonal gathering”?
Totenberg’s bashfulness came as she explained how the failure of Congress to pass an annual budget has left federal workers in limbo:
Well, these agencies, including the Defense Department, don’t know how much money they’ve got and for what. And I was at – forgive the expression – a Christmas party at the Department of Justice and people actually were really worried about this.
Video clip at the link.
To recap: wishing AIDS on political ideological opponents’ children and grandchildren is A-OK, but don’t utter the word “Christmas”, because then you have really crossed the boundary of acceptable discourse!
But hey, where would you get this crazy idea that the left has a war on Christmas or anything, right?
A Somali-American Muslim decides to bomb Portland, OR, during a Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Said Muslim’s plot is foiled. Portland beefs up security…for Muslims, naturally. Details:
Patrols around mosques and other Islamic sites in Portland have been stepped up as Muslim leaders expressed fears of retribution, days after a Somali-American man was accused of trying to blow up a van full of explosives during the city’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony.
Portland Mayor Sam Adams said Sunday that he beefed up protection around mosques “and other facilities that might be vulnerable to knuckle-headed retribution” after hearing of the bomb plot.
Right. Because it was someone from an Islamophobe background, and not someone from a Muslim fanatic background, that tried to bomb his city…right?
If Islamofascism doesn’t destroy America, political correctness will. If you live in Portland, I advise you to get the hell out. Your mayor is more concerned about not offending people than he is about keeping his city’s residents safe.
While on his “I’m in Asia to avoid confronting political realities at home” tour, President Kick#ss offered up this nugget:
In the same speech, Obama gave voice to a harsh criticism he has heard about freely elected governments.
“Today, we sometimes hear that democracy stands in the way of economic progress,” he said.
Who in the blue Hell has he been talking to that said that? Seriously, no one makes that contention in normal America, so he’s obviously been keeping company with people who do feel that way. Has he been chatting with Bill Ayers or Rev. Wright again?
By the way: this comment was given while addressing Indonesians during Veterans Day and praising the sacrifices made by veterans on behalf of “this great country”…though “this great country” meant Indonesia, not the U.S.
NPR: National Politically-correct Radio.
By now, most of you know the deal with NPR firing their correspondent Juan Williams for having the temerity to speak the truth on the left’s favorite target, Fox News. He said something that the left and NPR (pardon the redundancy) took out of context, namely that he pays closer attention to Muslim-looking passengers on an airplane. If you look at the full context of what he was saying, he was trying to show that such profiling was irrational, even when done by himself. I don’t think it is irrational, but whatever. Williams spent the rest of the time disagreeing with O’Reilly, who didn’t think such profiling was irrational.
Anywho, NPR canned Williams. The CEO, Vivian Schiller, wouldn’t return Williams’ calls or anything. However, Schiller did find time out of her busy taxpayer-(over)funded schedule to suggest Williams was a bigoted nutjob:
NPR chief executive Vivian Schiller is defending the firing of news analyst Juan Williams after his comments on the Fox News Channel, saying his feelings about Muslims are between him and “his psychiatrist or his publicist.”
I guess had Williams said that he wanted God to give a Republican Senator and/or his grandchildren AIDS like the still-employed-by-NPR Nina Totenberg (who, by the way, goes on MSNBC shows to do editorializing), then he’d still have a job at NPR.
So, to recap: Williams says something rational that National Pinko Radio bigwigs found objectionable, and he was forced out; the CEO says something that was unquestionably (and admittedly) outrageous, and she gets to keep her plush gig. Hypocrisy: not just for breakfast anymore.
By the way, Version One of NPR’s firing: No, it wasn’t his Muslim comments that got him fired, but was because he was opining (which undermines the “credibility” that NPR thinks they have when it comes to “objectivity”). Version Two of NPR’s firing: He “stepped over the line” with his comments…you know, the ones that didn’t contribute to his firing (see Version One)? Version Three: All of the above, including the outrageous comments that didn’t contribute to his firing but, now that you mention it, actually did contribute to his firing (and we were lying in Version One).
Cries from the right are now mounting to defund NPR (Huckabee, Newt, Palin, etc.). It’s clear that NPR should not be forced to be funded in any way by the fruits of labor of the producers in this country. Let Soros or Hollyweird or whomever fund that leftist propaganda outfit. In the meantime, since Williams has now been hired by Fox News, at least he can be exposed to more listeners and viewers than he would with NPR…although I’m sure both of NPR’s listeners will miss him.
When he’s not diddling portly interns, Bubba emerges long enough to spout this drivel:
Former President Bill Clinton strongly supports Park51, the mosque and community center planned near Ground Zero, he said in an interview posted on YouTube Sunday.
“I believe people should be free to practice their faith,” Clinton told Steve Grove, YouTube’s head of news and politics.
Someone please explain to the Horny Hick from Hope that this has jack squat to do with the right to worship freely. Asking them to move a mosque is not the same as denying them their right to worship.
But here’s the kicker:
Clinton also had a suggestion for the builders of Park51.
“Much or even most of the controversy…could have been avoided, and perhaps still can be, if the people who want to build the center were to simply say, ‘We are dedicating this center to all the Muslims who were killed on 9/11,’” Clinton said.
Dedicating the center to the Muslim victims would show that “not all Muslims are terrorists,” Clinton said, and it could help unite all the family members of 9/11 victims in a common cause of remembrance. Many 9/11 family members have been outspoken in opposition of the center.
“We’ve all forgotten: There were a lot of Muslims killed on 9/11,” Clinton said.
Right…like Mohammed Atta and 18 of his buddies?
Friggin’ sicko. He needs to stick to things he’s good at, like using chunky 20-somethings for his personal humidor.
Remember when President Kick#ss promised the U.S.S. Cole and 9/11 families justice? Well, as is the case with his other promises, that one also had an expiration date. “Words. Just words.”
From the Washington comPost:
The Obama administration has shelved the planned prosecution of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the alleged coordinator of the Oct. 2000 suicide attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, according to a court filing.
The decision at least temporarily scuttles what was supposed to be the signature trial of a major al-Qaeda figure under a reformed system of military commissions. And it comes practically on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the attack, which killed 17 sailors and wounded dozens when a boat packed with explosives ripped a hole in the side of the warship in the port of Aden.
In a filing this week in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the Justice Department said that “no charges are either pending or contemplated with respect to al-Nashiri in the near future.”
Apparently, B.O. didn’t think his personal and his party’s approval ratings were nearly low enough, so he’s going for broke.
Exit question: With examples like this (to add to the already long list of examples), why does the left seem puzzled that there is a growing suspicion that B.O. is more Muslim than any other faith?
I know, I know. The AP told me I can’t call it the Ground Zero Mosque anymore…which, of course, means I’m going to call it the Ground Zero Mosque even more that I would have had they kept their leftist cakeholes shut. Anywho, awesomely McAwesome analogy from Ace:
Is it time to return the Stars and Bars to the South Carolina State House?
I ask because I thought the rule was that an understandable revulsion to the memory of an emotionally-wounding time was enough to win out over a noisy, self-promoting group’s determination to advertise its views in a prominent, highly-symbolic area… but now I find that’s not so true, not so true.
So — Confederate flag at the SC statehouse again?
Because the people flying the flag there say they too have good, non-objectionable motivations for doing so — a reminder of heritage, honoring the dead, etc., etc. But previously we have shown skepticism towards their claimed motivations, and also decided their motivations were irrelevant — it wouldn’t even matter, we decided, if their motives were pure; the important thing was the Confederate flag was too hurtful to have near the people’s house of government.
Again, so I now find out this isn’t the rule anymore.
So if it’s not the rule anymore: Why can’t we have the Confederate flag at the SC statehouse?
Yes, I know, blacks (and others, including whites) consider it offensive and a nasty reminder of a national tragedy; but the spokesmen from Cordoba House have a response to such concerns, and that response is “F##k yourself, get over it already.”
So why doesn’t that work in South Carolina, too?
Why should we not take this “F##k yourself, get over it already” principle of moderate Muslim outreach wide and apply it to other emotionally-charged scenarios?
Pe-loco: The First Amendment is soooooo 1787! Details:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, called for an investigation of those who are protesting the building of the Ground Zero Mosque on Tuesday. She told San Francisco’s KCBS radio:
“There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded,” she said. “How is this being ginned up that here we are talking about Treasure Island, something we’ve been working on for decades, something of great interest to our community as we go forward to an election about the future of our country and two of the first three questions are about a zoning issue in New York City.”
San Fransicko, you MUST be proud!
Exit question: So is she advocating investigating Harry Reid?
Prez Kick#ss on Friday:
President Barack Obama’s decision to make public comments Friday that further stoked an already brewing controversy over the construction of a mosque near ground zero was “purely” his own, an administration official said Saturday.
B.O. the next day:
“In this country we treat everybody equally and in accordance with the law, regardless of race, regardless of religion. I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there. I was commenting very specifically on the right people have that dates back to our founding. That’s what our country is about.”
And then after the pullback, he pulled back the pullback:
An administration official said Obama didn’t change his position on the mosque from Friday to Saturday. Obama believes it’s his job to uphold a fundamental piece of the Constitution that everyone be treated equally under the law, the official said.
The president believes it was appropriate for the board in Manhattan to approve the project near ground zero, the official said, and he was “absolutely not” walking back his remarks from Friday.
“The fair thing to do was to allow this to go forward,” the official said.
So the Community Organizer-in-Chief thought it would be a fine idea to weigh in on the legal right to build a mosque at Ground Zero (a right that few people are arguing), and only the legal right? I don’t think anyone was talking about the legal right, but the morality or wisdom of building a mosque at a site where 3,000 Americans were slaughtered by nutjobs of the religion that will be commemorated by this mosque. Besides, no one thinks he was merely speaking of the legal right, but that he was giving an outright endorsement of the idea (his denials to the contrary notwithstanding). As Jon at Exurban League tweets: “Obama’s statement last night ticked off 70% of the country. His ‘clarification’ today has ticked off the other 30%.”
The Dems are already slated to take a beating in November, and this can’t possibly help.
What in the smoldering blue Hell is this crap???
In a far-reaching restatement of goals for the nation’s space agency, NASA administrator Charles Bolden says President Obama has ordered him to pursue three new objectives: to “re-inspire children” to study science and math, to “expand our international relationships,” and to “reach out to the Muslim world.” Of those three goals, Bolden said in a recent interview with al-Jazeera, the mission to reach out to Muslims is “perhaps foremost,” because it will help Islamic nations “feel good” about their scientific accomplishments.
You. Must. Be. Shiiting. Me.
Not a single one of these objectives has jack shiite to do with outer space! Besides, how would a math problem in the Muslim school world read, in order to inspire the little jihadi larvae being brainwashed educated there?
Ahmed has 10 lbs. of C-4 strapped to his 13-year-old body. If 1 lb. of C-4 wipes out 1000 sq. ft. when detonated, then how many Jewish pigs and other infidels can Ahmed wipe out at the local Tel Aviv sidewalk café on his way to see Allah and the 72 concubines?
President Kick#ss personally told Bolden to pursue this collectivist group hug policy. Hopenchange continues to run amok in this country, no?
As if Chris Christie’s takedown of a liberal reporter (pardon the redundancy) wasn’t enough to make me orgasmic, this retort from the AZ power commission to LA regarding an AZ boycott oughta do the trick. Link to PDF here.
Dear Mayor Villaraigosa,
I was dismayed to learn that the Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott Arizona and Arizona-based companies — a vote you strongly supported — to show opposition to SB 1070 (Support our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act).
You explained your support of the boycott as follows: “While we recognize that as neighbors, we share resources and ties with the State of Arizona that may be difficult to sever, our goal is not to hurt the local economy of Los Angeles, but to impact the economy of Arizona. Our intent is to use our dollars — or the withholding of our dollars — to send a message.” (emphasis added)
I received your message; please receive mine. As a state-wide elected member of the Arizona Corporation Commission overseeing Arizona’s electric and water utilities, I too am keenly aware of the “resources and ties” we share with the City of Los Angeles. In fact, approximately twenty-five percent of the electricity consumed in Los Angeles is generated by power plants in Arizona.
If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation. I am confident that Arizona’s utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands. If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona’s economy.
People of goodwill can disagree over the merits of SB 1070. A state-wide economic boycott of Arizona is not a message sent in goodwill.
Commissioner Gary Pierce
Ball’s in your court now, LA.
The Eric Holder approach:
MSNBC and both of their viewers are bummed that the Times Square bomber is a bloodthirsty camelhumping jihadist instead of a frothing Tea Partier. Mayor Bloomberg, elected shortly after jihadists brought down the Twin Towers in his city, doesn’t seem to recall that event, opining that he too thought it must have been Tea Partiers ticked off about ObamaCare.
The AP? They just fall back into reflexive and lazy mode…blaming Bush. Seriously.
D#mned liberals are intent on using political correctness to destroy this country!
Let’s see here:
The Taliban. al Qaeda. Hamas. Hezbollah. Iran’s ruling clerics. If only I could find one common bond, one thing they all share…
Well, I know one thing they don’t share in common, thanks to President Spineless:
President Barack Obama’s advisers will remove religious terms such as “Islamic extremism” from the central document outlining the U.S. national security strategy and will use the rewritten document to emphasize that the United States does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terror, counterterrorism officials said.
The change is a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventative war and currently states: “The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century.”
So does this mean that B.O. just solved our national security problems related to Islamic terrorist attacks? Simply remove references to it, and presto change-o…no more Islamic terrorism! Dude’s so awesome he just eradicated militant Islamic extremism…with his mind! You’re welcome, America.
God help us until the grown-ups and normal Americans can get back in charge!
If the bloodthirsty camelhumping jihadists don’t kill us, political correctness will. Excerpt:
Two new documents laying out the Obama administration’s defense and homeland security strategy over the next four years describe the nation’s terrorist enemies in a number of ways but fail to mention the words Islam, Islamic or Islamist.
The 108-page Quadrennial Homeland Security Review, made public last week by the Department of Homeland Security, uses the term “terrorist” a total of 66 times, “al Qaeda” five times and “violent extremism” or “extremist” 14 times. It calls on the U.S. government to “actively engage communities across the United States” to “stop the spread of violent extremism.”
I guess if there’s any silver lining, it’s that the word “terrorism” is now used instead of “man-caused disaster”, so there’s that.
Nappy Napolitano is bound and determined to keep an eye on the Tea Partier type, while ignoring the type who attacked us on Sept. 11. (Sidebar: For those of you on the left, feel free to Google “9/11/2001″ if the date doesn’t ring a bell for you. You’re welcome.)
CNN now resorting to perverting quotes in order to advance their narrative that Hasan did NOT act in the name of Islam
Full story here, and you MUST read it. It’s not long, but it is darned sure informative. It’s yet another example of CNN clinging desperately to their narrative that Hasan’s Muslim roots had no part whatsoever in his actions.
Exit question to Axelturf and the rest of the B.O. administration that love them sum CNN: Is this your idea of a “legitimate news organization”? One that pieces together two unrelated quotes used in a context not even remotely related to the point the reporter was making?
For the love of…ah, skip it. Story here, but this is the money quote:
The Army Chief of Staff, General George Casey, raised concerns over the weekend that innocent Muslim soldiers could suffer as a result of the shooting at Fort Hood.“I think the speculation (on Hasan’s Islamic roots) could potentially heighten backlash against some of our Muslim soldiers,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.”
Our agencies knew that Hasan was exhibiting jihadist tendencies, yet didn’t stop him. I would say that I wonder why, but in light of Gen. Casey’s “please don’t offend our Muslim soldiers” comments, I think I’ve got a pretty good idea what Hasan wasn’t stopped sooner.
I would advise any potential workers, including would-be military recruits, to NOT join any organization that values political correctness over your safety! The only thing more tragic than the shooting at Ft. Hood and its effect on family members and friends of the victims is the sick, perverted viewpoint of P.C. cretins. “Yeah, it’s a shame that those people died, but man, it would just be even more gruesome if we offended Muslim sensibilities!”
The wussification of the country continues.
No doubt many of you are aware of the case in New Haven, CT, where a firefighter exam’s results were tossed out because no black firemen passed the test. The white firefighters who passed sued, arguing that they were discriminated against because of their race. It’s obvious to anyone with half a brain that they were right. So of course, the liberal appeals court told them to stick it up their white chutes (or whatever the legalese equivalent of that is). SCOTUS nominee Sonia Sotomayor ruled against the firefighters and in favor of racism.
Today, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the liberal court, on a predictable 5-4 ruling, with the four liberal justices naturally and reflexively siding with racism.
Exit question: Does this put a dent in Sotomayor’s claim that by virtue of her being a “wise Latina woman”, she will reach “better conclusions” than non-Latin males?
Hat tip to PabloD for passing on this bit of Euro P.C. lunacy. From the UK:
Muslim prayer rooms should be opened in every Roman Catholic school, church leaders have said.
The Catholic bishops of England and Wales also want facilities in schools for Islamic pre-prayer washing rituals.
The recommendations were made in a document, Catholic Schools, Children of Other Faiths and Community Cohesion.
‘If practicable, a room (or rooms) might be made available for the use of pupils and staff from other faiths for prayer,’ the bishops said.
‘Existing toilet facilities might be adapted to accommodate individual ritual cleansing which is sometimes part of religious lifestyle and worship.
At least one sane person was quoted in this article:
Daphne McLeod, a former Catholic head teacher from south London, said it would be ‘terribly expensive’ for the country’s 2,300 Catholic primary and secondary schools to provide ritual cleansing facilities.
She said: ‘If Muslim parents choose a Catholic school then they accept that it is going to be a Catholic school and there will not be facilities for ritual cleansing and prayer rooms.
‘They do their ritual cleansing before they go to a mosque, but they are not going to a mosque.
‘I don’t think the bishops should go looking for problems. Where will it stop?’
How’s about a chortle at this poor schlub’s naivete?
But Majid Khatme, a Muslim who sent his children to a London Catholic school, said he was delighted by the gesture.
‘It is very kind of the bishops if they give this facility for Muslims to pray,’ he said.
‘I would love to send a letter of thanks to the bishops, really. If they do this all Muslims in Britain will be thankful to the Catholic Church to have facilities to pray. It is very, very encouraging.’
Oh, I see. Allow Muslims to pray in Catholic schools and the jihadist weirdbeards will suddenly stop self-detonating and screaming “Death to Infidels!” in light of their newfound respect for British dhimmis! Yeah, good luck with that.
It seems like only yesterday that the UK was a respectable, awe-inspiring nation. Now, it is a pathetic caricature.
