Obama said Islam is and always has been tolerant. That’s an outright lie.
Obama said Islam has had a role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings. Yet another outright lie. The only thing Islam has contributed to mankind has been death and destruction everywhere it has been allowed to infest.
Obama said that here in the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country. LIE! Driving a taxi or running a 7-11 are not extraordinary contributions.
Obama also said that Islam has always been part of America. No, it hasn’t, moron.
I have to ask the following question: Does this imbecile seriously believe this delusional boatload of bullshit, and if so, what the hell was he smoking? It certainly wasn’t a pack of Kools.
President Obama says Islam has always been part of America, which raises the question, does the president know something about American history that we don’t?
It has become customary for presidents to offer greetings to various religious communities on the occasion of their most holy days. Presidents Ford and Carter both issued Ramadan messages, as did Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush. The Ramadan greeting became intensely political during Mr. Bush’s tenure because he was seeking to dispel the charge that the war on terrorism was a crusade against Islam. But Mr. Obama has used the occasion of Ramadan to rewrite U.S. history and give Islam a prominence in American annals that it has not earned.
In this year’s greeting, Mr. Obama said the rituals of Ramadan “remind us of the principles that we hold in common and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings. Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality. And here in the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country.”
That Islam has had a major role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings may come as a surprise to Muslim women. Young Afghan girls who are having acid thrown in their faces on the way to school might want to offer their perspectives. That Islam is “known” for diversity and racial equality is also a bit of a reach. This certainly does not refer to religious diversity, which is nonexistent in many Muslim-majority states. This is a plaudit better reserved for a speech at the opening of a synagogue in Mecca.
Most puzzling is the president’s claim that “Islam has always been part of America.” Islam had no influence on the origins and development of the United States. It contributed nothing to early American political culture, art, literature, music or any other aspect of the early nation.
