Obama’s lapdog media is a pack of cowards

“I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” — Voltaire
Last week, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said the following:
I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.
As if to prove Giuliani correct, President Obama went on another one of his “let us all embrace Islam” rants during his three-day Summit on Countering Violent Extremism. Meanwhile, Congress is debating whether to send more American combat troops back to the Middle East to engage the Islamic State (ISIS).
Yet if you listen to Obama, Islam has absolutely nothing to do with ISIS regardless of its name. We can only wonder if the Islamic State is just a cover for those murderous Catholics.
Last Thursday, Obama declared:
[T]he notion that the West is at war with Islam is an ugly lie. And all of us, regardless of our faith, have a responsibility to reject it.
According to the Obama administration, the enemy is not the tens of millions of Muslims who cheered the falling of New York’s Twin Towers and whose terrorists we have battled for the past 13 years. Obama believes something far more sinister is afoot. His new intelligence assessment by his Department of Homeland Security reports that the real threat to America is from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists.
Obama’s terror war is against Americans, not Islamists
As Personal Liberty reported, the Obama administration believes the real threat to the nation is, “(American) extremists who believe that they can ignore laws and that their individual rights are under attack in routine daily instances such as a traffic stop or being required to obey a court order.”
Obama’s Department of Homeland Security cites a three-year-old incident in which a father and son shot and killed two police officers in Louisiana after being pulled over for a traffic violation. Vice President Joe Biden, speaking at the “anything except Islam” summit, railed against right-wing extremists and militias who commit violence “in the name of the Bible.”
Thankfully, not everyone is buying Obama’s propaganda, including a hardcore progressive, Bill Maher. Last Friday on his HBO show, Maher said, “This idea that we cannot even call it Islamic terrorism seems Orwellian to me.”
Not only to you, Bill, but also to Giuliani. But you have to admit it is a sad day when one of Obama’s harshest critics is Maher. Then again, what can we expect from the left-wing media?
Love him or hate him, what Giuliani said last week — that Obama does not love America — doesn’t really matter. He is a retired politician; he isn’t running for office.
What Obama says regarding terrorists and how the real threat is Americans and not Muslims matters a great deal. He is the president of the United States. He is the leader of the free world — a world that is conspicuously less free today than it was when he took office six years ago.
Yet Obama backers, big business, the Democrats in Congress and those who control the mass media are salivating over what Giuliani said at a private dinner to 60 people.
This reminds me of Joseph Goebbels itching to point out that Franklin D. Roosevelt was a Jew every time his Führer mismanaged the army, beginning with the disastrous defeat of the 9th Army in the Battle of Stalingrad. In a couple of years, tens of millions of Germans came to realize that the real enemy was not the Allies but Adolf Hitler. As for all those liberal sycophants who rush to point out that Obama was elected twice, it should be pointed out that Hitler was democratically elected once.
But today, Giuliani, an American leader in the days following 9/11, is a scapegoat. The media have decided to keep the ruckus going on about Giuliani so Americans won’t question Obama’s lies about Islam and will instead focus their attention on homebred terrorists.
But it wasn’t Americans who executed the Charlie Hebdo staff in Paris. It was Islamists. And it wasn’t American extremists who launched the terror attack in Denmark five weeks later. You can tell because American extremists don’t wear robes, pack the Koran in one hand and carry an AK-47 in the other. Those were Islamists, who are fighting their holy jihad backed by Arab money from the Gulf States, which are in turn backed by Obama.
Obama is a loyal Muslim until our bitter end
What were the events that led Islamists to attack newspapers in Paris and in Copenhagen? Simple, they had the audacity to draw cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad! And while Obama didn’t send a representative to Paris for the vigil of those victims, his administration did tell them beforehand they might have it coming.
In January 2012, the Obama administration criticized Charlie Hebdo for publishing cartoons of Muhammad, a position that the White House has steadfastly stood by.
PJ Media reported on Jan. 12:
White House press secretary Josh Earnest turned a question about the judgment of Charlie Hebdo in publishing Muhammad cartoons to a chiding about the “responsibilities” that come with free speech.
Earnest was asked if, in the wake of last week’s brutal terrorist attack on the satirical magazine’s French headquarters, the administration stood by Jay Carney’s 2012 comments: “We are aware that a French magazine published cartoons featuring a figure resembling the Prophet Muhammad. And, obviously, we have questions about the judgment of publishing something like this. We know that these images will be deeply offensive to many and have the potential to be inflammatory.
“At the same time, you know, it would not be the first time that there has been a discussion in this country about the kinds of responsibilities that go along with exercising the right to freedom of speech.”
The question Earnest should be asking and what all Americans should be asking is: What are the responsibilities of the president of the United States and what are the responsibilities of the fourth estate?
Why not have a Muhammad Cartoon Day?
CNN interviewed Lars Vilks on Feb. 15. Vilks is the Danish cartoonist and the target for the attack in Denmark. In that interview CNN almost blamed him for not doing the right thing and going into hiding, thus preventing the attack.
This should be a small thing really, to insult a religion. You cannot make exceptions for religion. I mean that’s the point. I mean this should be the same rules as we have for Christianity or the Jewish religion or whatsoever, that we should make an exception. Islam is not more holy than the other ones.
Vilks did not start this latest round of controversy. In 2005, the Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, sparking protests from Muslim communities across the world. For many Muslims, any images of the Prophet Muhammad are seen as blasphemous. Even worse were depictions that deliberately insulted the prophet. CNN has decided not to show any of these images.
Of course not! Why would CNN or any news media or publication publish a cartoon? Good God, that could make them targets. Instead they report in detail, loop upon loop, on the beheadings carried out by ISIS, replete with victims dressed in orange jumpsuits moments before their executions.
If the media really wanted to stand up for free speech and stop cowering in fear, they would pick out one day and call it Muhammad Cartoon Day. Deal with it, you whacked-out crazy Muslims. You can’t kill us all for our right to free speech. But that would take courage, and that is something that is in short supply when we have a president who acts more like a loyal Muslim than a good American.
Perhaps it would help for news executives to watch the movie “Spartacus,” the 1960 American epic starring Kirk Douglas and Tony Curtis. In it the Romans try to locate the rebel leader for special punishment. Every surviving man protects him by shouting: “I’m Spartacus!”
If we don’t want to die like slaves we need to all stand up and yell, “I’m Charlie Hebdo!”
Yours in good times and bad,
