On Tuesday, the Barack Hussein Obama campaign held a pander-fest for Detroit area extremist Muslims. Or, perhaps, it would be better called what it was, a bitch-fest.
Muslims whined and moaned that Obama is not pro-Muslim enough, including, whining about his AIPAC speech about an undivided Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Hmmm . . . I guess they just haven’t been paying attention, since Obama famously backtracked from that speech in a New York minute after he uttered it. And I guess they just haven’t noticed that he bends over backward in his books and his statements about “profiling” and “backlash” and everything else.
Still, I had fun reading the hilarious kvetching by the Michigan chieftain of HAMAS-front group CAIR, Dawud Walid, whose real name is Willis Delano Anthony, Jr.:
We are waiting for him to decry this Islamophobia as anti-American, just as anti-Semitism is anti-American.
Really? Um, quick question: How many Jews hijacked the planes on 9/11? How many have said they want America to be a Jewish country with the Torah as our Constitution? How many blew up the two U.S. embassies in 1998? How many blew up the Khobar Towers? How many Jews executed Nick Berg like a slaughtered chicken? Oh wait, he was Jewish.
To simply say that he is a Christian and not to criticize Islamophobia is akin to passively supporting Islamophobia. He has to address publicly the roots of these concerns.
Huh? Wha’Choo Talkin’ Bout, Willis?
Another whiner, Ron Amen, a Shi’ite Muslim who belongs to a pro-Hezbollah mosque and won’t denounce the group:
It is hurting me . . . the senator distancing himself from Islam. Obviously, I hate that.
But no worries. The Hussein Obama campaign is reaching out to these extremists, both of whom openly support Hezbollah and HAMAS and won’t denounce them, despite the fact that both groups murdered innocentAmericans in cold blood.
“It’s a cornerstone of our campaign to reach out to people of all walks of life and people of different faiths,” said Amy Brundage, a spokeswoman for Obama. “It is important for us to have a dialogue . . . and we will continue to have these discussions throughout this campaign.”
It’s official: The Obama campaign reaches out to all walks of life, including the HAMAS and Hezbollah “walks of life.”
More like, walks of death.
The thing is–aside from the fact that Obama could not be more pro-Muslim–the Muslims have nowhere to go, other than Obama. They’re not going to vote for McCain. (And if Obama were smart, he’d ignore them. But he isn’t smart.)
But, hey, if they want to stay home in November since he’s not pro-Muslim enough for them, I’m all for it. The fact is the Muslim vote is far smaller than Muslims want people to believe. They won’t decide the election, especially here in Michigan (where they have the largest numbers), which will likely go heavily for Obama, anyway.
