As I Predicted in 2006, Obama Now Owns Muslim Background: So, Where Are the Apologies to Me From the Left . . . and the Right?

By Debbie Schlussel
So, now, Barack Hussein Obama is now “owning” his Muslim heritage and background (see here also), something he tried to “p3wn” us on for the last three years. It’s no surprise. And back in 2006–to the jeers of so many who now decry what Obama is doing with this–I predicted it and pointed it out.
Yes, back in 2006, I was the first blogger to write about Barack Obama’s Muslim background–and how according to Islamic law, he is a Muslim and that’s how the Muslim world sees him.
All of it was and remains factual.

Yet, because we’re not allowed to mention the “M” or “I” words, I was savaged all over the internet and mainstream media for it. I was attack by the left–including the Nazi-funded Media Matters–and the right, by self-appointed moral judges of political correctness who believe and want to make the rest of us know that they’re better than that Debbie Schlussel who dared point out the completely irrelevant fact that Barack Hussein Obama’s father was Muslim and that Obama himself was raised as a Muslim and identified as such when he lived in Indonesia.
One of my critics on the right was Hot Air’s AllahPundit (too cowardly to go by his real name and too cowardly to apologize), who didn’t bother to read what I actually wrote and lied, claiming I called Obama a “Muslim Manchurian candidate.” I never actually wrote such a thing, but the left told him that, so he believed them.
But don’t worry, I’m not expecting any apologies. Those on the left would never admit the facts that we saw in the news yesterday and today–that by Obama’s own admission, he is proud of his Islamic family and now thinks America is a Muslim nation (more on that later). Those on the right are even more classless in their inability to apologize. Hey, they’d rather savage me in their continuing professional jealousies that they never dare quell. Dignity, decency, and class never comes anywhere near far too many of them.
So, I’m not holding my breath about the blogosphere and mainstream media that savaged me over Obama’s Islamic ethos, since I first wrote about it in 2006.
I was right then, and I’m right now. And–now that it’s too late and we will likely have 8 years of Obama, especially if Sarah Palin is the nominee–they are finally waking up and saying, Hey, whaddya know, Obama is owning his Islamic roots.
Shocker. You heard it here first back in 2006. Yes, lots of apologies should be coming my way, but just as I was right in my predictions and work in 2006, I’m right about this: the cowards won’t dare utter these two words, “I’m sorry.”

I have been stunned at the number of right-wing bloggers that have gone center and left since Obama won. I am even more stunned at how many are saying that his avowing his Muslim roots is not “truly” stating that he is a Muslim! Go figure.
Keep up the good work Debbie.

[and how according to Islamic law, he is a Muslim and that’s how the Muslim world sees him.]
According to Christianity, he is a Christian. In fact, by accepting Jesus Christ as a former Muslim (whatever)by Islamic law he would get a death sentence. So I think Christians and Jews should honor President Obama for his courage.

the media is acting surprised at this “revelation”. Were they asleep during the campaign when he spoke the call to prayer in arabic for the NYT? He did that for one reason, to get the word out to the muslim world that he was not an apostate and he was fooling the stupid infidels.
He also admitted his muslim faith to stephanopolis in an interview, who then corrected it for him. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQqIpdBOg6I
First they showed how the MSM stands up for barry when he comes in to the room. Which they didn’t do for Bush. Now the media is bowing to our new boy king:
Americans do not bow. But it looks like the times are a changing.
We are so screwed.

Bowing , ender? the MSM has grown bionic kneepads since the middle of the last presidential campaign.

Debbie- you hit it right on the nose and said what so many of us have suspected/thought since the begining of the Obamessiah’s first appearance on the national scene fromout of nowhere in 2004.
I have tried to give the benefit of the doubt as a Christian myself, that he is, as he purports to be, a Christian. The embrace he shows toward jihadist islam, enemies of the US and our only middle eastern ally, Israel, along with the apologist stance, are no indicators of a belief in Judeo-Christian ethos.

Mistress_Dee on June 3, 2009 at 12:20 pm

Even if you didn’t say it, I believe that Obama is, in fact, the Muslim Manchurian candidate. His actions seem to be directed to the destruction of the United States as we know it. God save the Republic for which so many fought and died.

Obama’s first stop today is in Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam. If that’s not a message, I don’t know what would be one. People just don’t want to see his Islamic background and beliefs. From all the cowards who have maligned her, I don’t expect them to say they were mistaken. And the Left is never ever wrong.

NormanF on June 3, 2009 at 12:37 pm

Not only is he a Muslim he is also not a natural born citizen and therefore in intelligible to be President.
Allahpundit is a liberal Republican. Ever since he started running HotAir the blog has gone down hill. He writes columns constantly criticizing true conservatives including Debbie.He attacked Debbie on numerous occassions after she posted on his blog.
I used to post there until he started censoring my posts. He cannot stand anyone pointing out the facts to his liberal attacks on conservatives.
Rumors are that is he is a closet Homosexual and that is why he will not sign his posts with his real name.
Time to impeach the “one” for running on false pretenses to be president of the USA.

I always believed you… Using this to vent today as you have much more class and discipline than I do… Frankly, I am scared, and I can admit it. I also read he stated we need a clearer learning of ISLAM….. Are the Jewish people starting to have mixed feelings about this guy? or beginning to see the light? Because I am up at night worrying about the Jews…. It would be nice if alot of them joined me.

We’re not a Muslim nation, but we ARE a stupid one.
Stupid for electing an empty suit.

Obama and his pastor were both Muslims that ‘converted’ to a Palestinian pseudo-Christianity that denies the Jewish roots of the Old Testament and promotes Jew hatred. Palestinian Christianity is where stealth Muslims hide out and work to undermine Christianity and the West. It has spread from the Middle East into Europe, and is starting to emerge here and there in the USA. Under their skin both Obama and his pastor are still Muslims using Palestinian Christianity to enable them to fit in and deflect criticism. If you study the Koran, the Hadiths, and Islamic theology you will find that Muslims are instructed to lie and deceive infidels (that’s us) to advance Islam, and kill or subdue infidels when possible. Take note of the very close relationship between ObamaĆ­s pastor and Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam. The latter provided Muslim bodyguards for Obama during the election campaign. From the start of his career in politics he has had continued substantial support from several very wealthy Muslim businessmen. America has made a terrible mistake and will pay dearly for it.

Epitaph On America’s Tombstone:
Hollywood put the dope out there to control the masses. A generation of parents in America were not strong enough to understand the power of the dope and not to tell their children not to take the dope. Either too busy or on the dope itself. Children turned out emulating the Hollywood liberal sickness. Children grew up to vote and the country voted a dope in Obama. President destroys country. Country now dead. But they all felt good doing it.

Debbie, I first learned of your blog today.
It is very very good. I understand the RINO right.
As a Conservative, I am not swayed, intimidated or cowed by the Thought Police or the Politically Correct crowd.
I was criticized by a self proclaimed Conservative for referring to Opie as a “mulatto”.
Truth is truth. Telling someone of Opies Muslim past and roots doesn’t brand him as anything. It is merely the truth. Let the chips fall where they may. Far too many douche bags want to censor TRUTH because they don’t trust people to make their own logical conclusions.
God bless Debbie.

Reportedly, as mentioned by a commenter above, Obama averred today in Saudi Arabia that the study of Islam should be more seriously undertaken than it has been heretofore. He is absolutely right, albeit unwittingly. A clear-eyed, objective study of Islam, embarked upon at minimum by the FBI, CIA, State Department, and Foreign Service, should be mandatory. To be avoided at all costs, however, are the apologists and shills for Islam (such as the late, unlamented Edward Said, and the wretched John Esposito) who intentionally obfuscate, mislead, and whitewash this essentially malevolent belief system, which has an inextricable political component and a goal of global hegemony. Essential to the study of Islam is a study of jihad, and the history of Muslim conquest and its attendant atrocities committed throughout the world, atrocities sanctioned, upheld, and perpetuated everywhere by Islamic law and precepts. A good non-scholarly introduction to Islam would be the numerous, and harrowing, videos readily available online via MEMRI (Middle East Media Review Institute); these include many khutbas (sermons) and lectures delivered by prominent Muslim scholars, jurists, and clerics, many of whom hold posts at universities and mosques considered prestigious throughout Islamdom. These individuals draw upon Muslim canonical texts to justify Jew-hatred, anti-Christian sentiments, destruction of Israel and all infidel societies, slavery, Muslim supremacy, the obligation to wage war against non-Muslims, and so on. Keep in mind that these lectures and sermons were aired on state-controlled television stations, indicating that the government of each respective country (such as Syria, Egypt, Gaza, the PA-controlled areas of the so-called West Bank, Iran, Jordan, etc.) approved of the content of these broadcasts.

Oh me. I am so glad I found this blog. This is what I have been preaching for since the King of the world became known. I even had one friend tell me that I might need counseling when I warned folks over and over where this guy was going to take this country. Thanks. It is too late I’m afraid. He will be re-elected. Maybe GOD is rewarding the USA for being so stupid.

I’m reminded by the post above, of one of my husband’s many “colorful” and bucolic phrases that abound from his three decades as a military officer-
it goes like this-
“Stupidity isn’t legally a crime, just an affront to nature, and nature has its own unique way of enacting vengeance for the offense.”

Mistress_Dee on June 4, 2009 at 7:51 am

Knew it was coming already; not suprised or shocked at all.
Guns are still loaded since before election day.

Debbie, you and Pam Geller are vindicated at last. Both of you have been right all along. I cannot say much for Charles Johnson of LGF, ever-basking in the warmth of his up-dinging, sycophantic fans and his far-off-the-rail obsession over pro-life Christians, creationists, Ron Paul and Glenn Beck.
