Outing NYT lies on Obama

Posted by avideditor on March 11, 2008


Obama scares me. He pretends just not to like Likud but his ties to radical islamic organizations and Jihadi money tell me other wise. Any jew that votes for Obama is voting to destroy the state of Israel and creating a climate in America that will not be safe for jews. Every clear thinking American should fear what he means by change. Not all change is good, but the change the Obama wants will make the world a less safe place for all Americans, especially the Jews.Previous articles I have blogged on Obama are here https://avideditor.wordpress.com/category/obama/

Fisking Nicolas Kristof on Obama’s Bigots: “

It seems to me that Kristof is the one guilty of name calling and labels. ‘Bigot!’ ‘Racist!’ The only leftist meme missing, ‘islamophobe!’ but that might imply Obama is a …. Muslim.I had to fisk Kristof’s column because every sentence was ……. wrong.

Obama and the bigots Nicolas Kristof, NY TimesThe ugliest prejudices in this campaign season are not directly about race.Barack Obama’s skin color may cost him some working-class white voters, but it’salso winning some votes among blacks and among whites eager to signal theiropen-mindedness. 

Deception. No one gives a rat’s ass about Obama’s colour except those that are voting for himKristof190because he is black (an inverted racism)  evidence enough that  this is not a race issue. Kristof  ignores that omnipresent fact that Islam declared on this country on 9/11/01 (or as far back as 1979) so any rational, reasoned man  we would be concerned if a President had sympathies and loyalties to an enemy that vowed to destroy America and made good on that threat by planning daily operations and carrying out daily , weekly, monthly attacks on our allies and free peoples everywhere to advance their nefarious goals.

Sexism seems more of a factor. Americans have typically said in polls thatthey are less willing to vote for a woman than a black, and Shirley Chisholm (ablack woman who ran for president in 1972) always said that she encountered moreprejudice because of her sex than her race. 

It’s a she thing? Nah, if Thatcher were running, we’d all vote for her. Its the content, not the genitalia.

Yet the most monstrous bigotry in this election isn’t about either race orsex. It’s about religion.The whispering campaigns allege that Mr. Obama is a secret Muslim planning toimpose Islamic law on the country. Incredibly, he is even accused — in earnest!— of being the Antichrist. 

First off, no one is whispering. We are not ashamed. Kristof and his lily-livered colleagues whisper, tiptoe around Islam. Did they print the Danish cartoons? Did they take up the cause of free speech against Islamic censorship parading as ‘blasphemey’? Did they take up the oppression of women in Islam? Never against Islam. We, OTOH,  are stating, asserting the disturbing facts quite plainly and they are hard to ignore (though main stream media does nothing but ignore it).Secondly, no one thinks he’s the Anti-Christ. It’s the unnerving fervor and reverence, blind faith on behalf of the obamaniacs that generates a knee jerk play on the Anti-Christ moniker. Ive called him that as a poke, but not seriously.  On the other hand,  many Obama cultists believe he is the messiah. Hence, the Anti-Christ rubric.

Proponents of this theory offer detailed theological explanations for why heis the Antichrist, and the proof is that he claims to be Christian — after all, the Antichrist would say that, wouldn’t he? Therumors circulate enough that Glenn Beck of CNN asked the Rev. John Hagee, aconservative evangelical, what the odds are that Mr. Obama is theAntichrist. 

This is nonsense. Kristof  knows it.

These charges are fanatical, America’s own equivalent of the viciousaccusations about Jews that circulate in some Muslim countries

No, its nothing like that. Jews in Muslim countries are subjected to the most vilejudeophobia. Only a man void of logic, reason and a moral compass couldconceive of such a statement.Islam, OTOH,  has declared war on the West and has carried out over 10,000 Islamic attacks since 9/11/01. The blood libel, holocaust denying and oppression of Jews in Muslim countries is nothing like it, let alone the equivalent. That’s not a comparison. It’s a leftist lie and and an out for any culpability by the terrible Muslim treatment of the Jews. The Jews have not waged war on the West or on anyone or any nation. The Jews half hearted attempts at self defense are deliberately small so as not to be accused of false crimes (al dura!) humanitarian crises (lights off Gaza!) so crushing is world condemnation of Israels right to defend herself.    We are asking legitimate questions of a man with a Muslim background (who is decidedly dishonest about it) and whose foreign policy advisers, kitchen cabinet and wife are patently anti-American. These things matter!

They are less aswipe at one candidate than a calumny against an entire religion. Theyunderscore that for many bigoted Americans in the 21st century, calling someonea Muslim is still a slur. 

Muslim is not a slur. Muslims will have to take sides in this war. Any Muslim that is with us, is not with the Islamists and we pray it is the ‘silent’ majority that everyone presupposes they are. Wafa Sultan, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Ibn Warraq, ….. these Muslims are warriors and are critical in the battle against pious Islam.

There is a parallel with presidential campaigns in the 19th and early 20thcenturies, when one of the most common ways to attack a candidate was to suggestthat he was partly black, or at least favored racial intermarriage. For example,the Federalists charged that Thomas Jefferson was ‘the son of a half-breedIndian squaw, sired by a Virginia mulatto father.’ And the word ‘miscegenation’was coined in 1863 and 1864 in charges that Abraham Lincoln secretly plotted forblacks to marry whites, especially Irish-Americans. 

Kristof is being dishonest here. Obama Hussein was born a Muslim and raised a Muslim in a Muslim country until …… We know he has been in  the very anti-semetic, anti-American  Rev Jeremiah Wrights congregation for 20 years so Obamas first 27  years is anyones guess. We do not know if he was baptized as there is no record of his baptism. None. If his campaign would release that info, that would be great. Is he an apostate?Did he leave Islam? How?

As late as the 1920 presidential campaign, a quarter-million letters weresent to voters accusing Warren Harding of being descended from a ‘West IndianNegro. … May God save America from international shame and domestic ruin.’In looking back at that history, you wish that a candidate had responded notonly with, ‘No, I don’t have any black ancestor,’ but also with, ‘So what if Idid?’Likewise, with countless people today spreading scurrilous rumors that Mr.Obama is a Muslim, the most appropriate response is a denial followed by: And so what if he were? 

If he were we would want to know were he stood. Still do. Islam is a political ideology and there is no separation between mosque and state. So we’d like to know. We’d like to know when he says he will convene a Muslim summit to address their grievances (as President) what exactly does he mean. Regarding Israel, concerning sharia, oppression of free thought, what exactly? More suppression of free speech?

Granted, that’s not politically realistic as a comeback. A 2007 Gallup pollfound that 94 percent of Americans said they would vote for a black candidatefor president and 88 percent for a woman. In contrast, a Los Angeles Times pollin 2006 found that only 34 percent of respondents said they could vote for aMuslim for president. 

C’mon Krsitof, it’s not about colour – you are showing your age. That is so …. sixties. It’s about the declaration of war on the West by Islam.

Even if a prejudice is directed to a matter of choice, like religion or longhair, it’s still prejudice. It’s possible to believe that Catholics have everyright to be president while opposing a particular Catholic candidate who wouldban contraception; likewise, it’s possible to believe that Muslims have everyright to hold office without necessarily embracing the candidacy of particularMuslims who advocate enveloping all women in burkas. 

There’s a difference. One is a religion and one is a religious political ideology advancing and swallowing up Western societies, countries, continents.

To his credit, Mr. Obama has spoken respectfully of Islam (he told me lastyear, on the record, that the Muslim call to prayer is ‘one of the prettiestsounds on earth at sunset’). If he were to go further — ‘and so what if I wereMuslim?’ — many Americans would see that as confirmation that he is a Sunniterrorist agent of Al Qaeda who is part of a 9/11 backup plan: If you can’treach the White House with a hijacked plane, then storm the Oval Office throughthe ballot box. 

Could a German have said that from 1938-1945? Should they have?

This is a case where Hillary Rodham Clinton and John McCain should take theinitiative and denounce the fear-mongering about Mr. Obama as hate speech. Thewink-wink references to ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ and lies about his going to amadrassa are the religious equivalent of racial slurs, and Mr. McCain and Mrs.Clinton should denounce them in the strongest terms. This is their chance toshow leadership. 

Let Hillary do it. Let McCain do no such thing. I love this —  the Times Leftards in chief  telling the Republican candidate to submit to the Dhimmicrat candidate. Now thats (frank)rich.

When Mrs. Clinton was asked in a television interview a week ago whether Mr.Obama is a Muslim, she denied it firmly — but then added, most unfortunately,‘as far as I know.’ To his credit, Mr. McCain scolded a radio host whorepeatedly referred to ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ and later called him a Manchuriancandidate. 

She has a point. I have called him the Manchurian candidate because of his domestic ties (Farrakhan),  international allegiances – (Odinga) and his promise to meet with dictators and despots of terror states (Iran) responsible for the murder of thousands American soldiers.

Martin Luther wasn’t a model of tolerance but even he took the position that,‘I’d rather be ruled by a wise Turk than a foolish Christian.’ In thispresidential campaign, we should at least aspire to be as open-minded as16th-century Germans. 

I’d rather be ruled by anyone that understands the enemy we face than a tool of the jihad.
