Your Freudian Slip is Showing: Hmmm . . . Did Obama Just Admit He’s Muslim (Again)?

By Debbie Schlussel
Speechwriters are very careful. And especially the ones who write for Obama’s Teleprompter. They don’t write ambiguous statements for nothing, do they?
So, you have to wonder what exactly did Barack Hussein Obama mean when he said this in Turkey, today, in his butt-kissing Islam speech.

The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans. Many other Americans have Muslims in their family, or have lived in a Muslim-majority country — I know, because I am one of them.

Yes, but which “one of them”?
I’m sure he’ll chalk this up to yet another mistake or “misspoken” item, like when he spoke of “my Muslim faith” to George Stephanopoulos, last year.
This guy has enough Freudian slips to open a lingerie store.

he admits it verbally and by his actions.
“The United States said Monday it would donate 50,000 dollars in emergency aid to Italy after a powerful earthquake killed at least 100 people.
“We send our heartfelt condolences to the families of those killed in the earthquake. Our embassy in Rome will provide 50,000 (dollars) in emergency relief funding,” State Department spokesman Robert Wood told reporters. ”
$50,000 for earthquake victims while he is giving HAMAS about a trillion dollars.
Guess there weren’t enough muslims affected by the earthquake.

wrong priorities-how sad

The biggest Obama zinger for me is this:
“The United States is not and will never be at war with Islam.”
We’re not at war with militant Islam?
Who destroyed the World Trade Center?
We’re not at war with Al Qaeda?

This seems to be a stretch. Obama does have Muslim familty members (his father and grandfather, at least) and has lived in a majority Muslim country, Indonesia. So both statements are true without indicating he himself is Muslim. I know he was raised Muslim but I’m satisfied he converted, even if to a cultish sect of Christianity.

Although Obama is worse than Clinton, the Bushes and even Carter (although not by very much), the statement is ambiguous. He is one of what? People with Muslim relatives? Of course the speechwriters thrive on ambiguity, and he probably knows that in our dumbed-down country, the press will twist the statement to just reflect PC tolerance. But his policies are really bipartisan, as you implied in another post. Bush did many of the same things, and the Republicans are presenting no alternative except for a ritualistic vote against his budget, and a Pollyanish alternative that was not meant to be serious. We have never needed a third party like we do today. That’s why I didn’t support McCain; I thought it would retard the growth towards the type of independent movement that is really needed in this country.

Hawaii never confirmed what his birth certificate says, just that they have one on file. Since the one that he shows doesn’t have a location (state or hospital) you have to wonder what he is hiding on his so called “long” form certificate.

You mean, is he someone with Muslims in his family or has he lived in a Muslim-majority country?
Because both of those things are true. And neither makes him a Muslim.
Can you read?

He is so drunk with his new powers that he so badly wants to openly state his muslim faith. He can’t because politics prevents him from doing so. It will be interesting to see if his discipline weakens down the road.

learn to love me
the koran knows the way
we can pray five times a day
my only weakness is a list of crimes
my only weakness if well, never mind, never mind
secret muslim presidents of the world,
unite and take over
secret muslim presidents of the world
hand it over
hand it over
america’s over
You’ll learn to love keffiyahs
And socialist ways
Yes, of Kenyan-birth, always
My only weakness is for white-on-white crime
But last night the plans for my future war
Was all I saw
on al-jazeera
secret muslim presidents of the world,
unite and take over
secret muslim presidents of the world
hand it over
hand it over
hand it over

I think this is a real stretch. His comment indicates that he has Muslim relatives and has lived in a Muslim-majority country. Not that he’s a Muslim himself.
Come on, the guy is celebrating a Passover seder tonight. How many Muslims would do that???
Obama’s also looking to buy his kids a dog, and Muslims think dogs are unclean. Some Muslim clerics even call for punishment against dog owners.

Obviously, Debbie, you do not know how to read.

Here are Obama’s words, as cited by you:

“The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans. Many other [non-Muslim] Americans have Muslims in their family, or have lived in a Muslim-majority country — I know, because I am one of them.”

Yes, Barack Obama has spent time in Indonesia, which has the world’s greatest population of Muslims.

He is one of the many Americans who has lived in a Muslim-majority country.

Sorry, Debbie, but that is a fact – and as you like to say, facts are stubborn things.

Barack Obama also has Muslims in his family. His grandfather, as you have always been quick to point out – was a Muslim.

Therefore, both of the statements apply to the President – he has Muslims in his family, and he has spent several years in Indonesia, a country dominated by Muslims.

As much as I respect your work, Debbie, I have to say that in this case, you simply do not understand the words you are reading.

Stop mincing the President’s words. You are simply incorrect. Period. End-of-story.
