By Mr. Curmudgeon:
Obama is in the hot seat for supporting the Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt. So far, his administration has “invested” $1.3 billion in the government that allowed Salafist movement protesters to storm the U.S. Embassy grounds in Cairo to desecrate the American flag. Libya, where U.S. Ambassador John Christopher Stevens and three others were murdered, awaits a $20 million Congressional foreign aid appropriation. Obama’s investment in the Arab Spring is looking as successful as his investment in Solyndra – but far more deadly.
When his administration admonished Americans for speaking critically of the ideology that brought down New York’s Twin Towers and murdered a U.S. ambassador, Romney was quick to side with freethinking Americans and the Constitution.
Though they tried, the media could not spin the administration’s attacks on free speech to the president’s advantage and, in desperation, attacked Romney’s patriotism and veracity. “Mr. Romney could easily have held his fire during this crisis,” said Thursday’s New York Times in its lead editorial, “if he could not summon the decency to support the United States government. Instead, he misrepresented the administration as ‘sympathizing’ with the attackers.”
“The violence done on Tuesday,” the Times insisted, “was apparently the work of a relatively small group of radicals not associated with any legitimate protest.” (Emphases added)
Needless to say, the Times is deeply invested in the Arab Spring, the Muslim Brotherhood even.
In December of 2011, Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof visited an Egyptian Brotherhood stronghold. “Its offices are social service agencies,” wrote Kristof, “Citizens dropped in to ask for blankets for the winter, and the party handed them out — along with campaign brochures. Several people asked for help paying medical bills, and they got it. In the evening, women arrived to take a free class about science.”
For Kristof, the Brotherhood was a kinder, gentler version of ACORN – you know, “community organizers.” When he asked an Egyptian woman if “[Islamist] Salafi parties would curb female professionals like herself,” the woman sidestepped the question by saying, “They help needy women.”
Last Tuesday, the Salafi party expanded its “war on women” to include the United States Embassy in Cairo.
Meanwhile, Secretary Clinton released another attack on the anti-jihad video’s creator, calling his exercise in free speech “disgusting and reprehensible,” and insisting, “The U.S. government has absolutely nothing to do with the video. We absolutely reject its content and messages,” said Clinton.
She was attempting to calm the passions of what the Times described as “legitimate” mobs outside the U.S. embassy in Sanaa, Yemen. “We cannot accept any insult to our prophet,” a protestor told the Washington Post, “It’s a red line.” Another said, “Soldiers were telling me, ‘These are dogs, and we cannot accept insulting our prophet.’”
Obama and Clinton agree and are content to allow the Islamic tail to wag infidel American “dogs.”
The question of American free speech has painted the Obama administration into a corner … a sharia corner, and Americans refuse to follow them there. This has the mainstream media fuming mad.
“We cannot accept any insult to our prophet,” they seem to be saying, “The free-speech American dogs insult Hope and Change and its prophet … Barack Hussein Obama.”
