As I predicted, Barack Hussein Obama is continuing to practice the 3 “B”s to Islam (Bowing Down, Bending Over, and Butt-Kissing) in conjunction with his Mid-East Muslim pandering trip.
And in that vein, he told Laura Haim of French Television station, Canal Plus, that the United States could be considered “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.” (See here also.) Yup, first he said we are not a Christian country in his first pandering trip and speech to the Muslim world in Turkey. Now, he says, we are a Muslim nation.
That’s bunk, though methinks that was what he wants us to be.
But here are the facts. Muslims are less than one percent of the U.S. population, despite the “6-9 million Muslims” and “5-8 million Muslims” claims that CAIR gets the liberal mainstream media and clueless idiot so-called conservative bloggers who don’t do their homework, like Don Surber, to regurgitate.
Most extrapolations of the U.S. Census (taking into account that most who identify as Arabs in the U.S. are Christian) find that there are less than 2 million Muslims in the U.S. In fact, as I noted last year, the only reliable study, the 2008 Pew Center survey, says that Muslims in America number only 1.8 million in the U.S., or just about .6%.
If Barack Obama is going to claim that a nation with an overwhelming majority of Christians–78.4% according to the Pew Center–is NOT a Christian nation, but is a Muslim nation–with only 0.6% of the population being Muslim–the guy is even more insane or a bigger liar than we originally knew.
But don’t expect so-called “conservative” bloggers to get it right. As I noted, clueless Don Surber of a West Virginia newspaper, the Daily Mail (no, not the respected far-left Brit paper, which would never have him), doesn’t bother to use a single fact on Muslim population in the U.S. Instead he pulls numbers out of his ass, providing no source for them, when we know the source is the propaganda put forth by CAIR.
With an estimated 5 million to 8 million Muslims, obviously he does not mean by percentage; Muslims are less than 3% of the U.S. population.
Estimated from what, Don? Oh, yes, your butt. PUH-LEEZE, there aren’t anywhere near 5-8 million Muslims in America and barely a half-percent of our population, not the ridiculous “less than 3%” claim he pulls out of thin air.
