Cairo to D-Day -- Obama Without a Clue

D-Day ceremonies were held again to remember the men who fought and died, battled and survived, to honor the actions of ordinary men doing the extraordinary on the beaches of France on a gray day in June 1944. President Sarkozy of France, British Prime Minister Brown, Canadian Prime Minister Harper, and Prince Charles of England attended the ceremonies along with Barack Hussein Obama.

Obama had only two days before stood before the Islamic ummah in Cairo, Egypt, to declare, 'Ich bin ein Muslim.' Charles Krauthammer writes in the Washington Post, "Obama says he came to Cairo to tell the truth. But he uttered not a word of that. Instead, among all the bromides and lofty sentiments, he issued but one concrete declaration of new American policy: "The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements," thus reinforcing the myth that Palestinian misery and statelessness are the fault of Israel and the settlements."

Krauthammer continued on FOX News, describing Obama's Cairo speech as

"so abstract, vapid, and self-absorbed that it didn't touch a lot of policy except on Iran where he was exceedingly weak... There was once again, over and over again, apologies for colonialism and imperialism. The United States was never a colonial power or even the holder of the League of Nations Mandate in the Arab or Muslim world."
The truth Obama had to tell was held for the Normandy D-Day commemoration. He had no trouble accurately enunciating the purpose and enemy in World War II. Obama said about the NAZI Third Reich of Adolf Hitler,

For what we faced in Nazi totalitarianism was not just a battle of competing interests. It was a competing vision of humanity. Nazi ideology sought to subjugate, humiliate, and exterminate. It perpetrated murder on a massive scale, fueled by a hatred of those who were deemed different and therefore inferior. It was evil.
Clearly, Obama does not understand moral and actual equivalence. He does not understand that what we face in Islamic totalitarianism is not just a battle of competing interests. It is a competing vision of humanity. Islamic ideology seeks to subjugate, humiliate, and exterminate. It perpetrates murder on a massive scale, fueled by a hatred of those who are deemed different and therefore inferior. It is evil.

Yes, Islamic ideology is definitely evil and so is bending over and kissing it's butt, as Obama is doing. I'm so utterly disgusted with him. Of course I was disgusted with him before he got elected, mortified when he did, and I think now that he's been in office for awhile my feelings go beyond disgust. "Beyond disgust." Is there a decent word for that? If there is, I don't know what it is.

Good post, Indigo. I agree with both Krauthammer and you completely.


Indigo Red said...

No, Gayle, I don't know of and don't think there is any word to describe the feeling "beyond disgust". The phrase is as good as it gets.

Oh well... English does have it's shortcomings!

BHO quoted, out of context, from Sura 9, the most militant portion of the entire Koran. That particular chapter is the one the jihadists use to justify their actions!

It's hard not to quote the Koran out of context. The verses are arraigned randomly and the chapters are arraigned longest to shortest rather than chronologically. The whole thing is out of context.

It's called the noble koran not holy koran as Obama called it.
