It is blatantly obvious that Obama has been pulling for the Muslim immigrant. He wants to see as many as possible come and prosper in this country. Now, I am not in any way suggesting that he or any of us should be pulling against them or seeking to hinder their success once they are here. Rather, I wish to see Obama be honest about the Muslim and his situation here in America.
Rather than call out the Muslim community for their silence in the face of horrible terror attacks here and abroad, Obama played them as victims.
Although the biggest terror attack in America since 9/11 happened less than two months ago, because they are as eager to engage in the cover-up as President Obama, the DC Media is not at all interested in pointing out the fact, or pressing the White House on the question of why Obama failed to mention the San Bernardino terror attack during his State of the Union address. He did, however, absurdly single out Muslims as victims of American discrimination:
That's why we need to reject any politics that targets people because of race or religion. This isn't a matter of political correctness. It's a matter of understanding what makes us strong. The world respects us not just for our arsenal; it respects us for our diversity and our openness and the way we respect every faith. His Holiness, Pope Francis, told this body from the very spot I stand tonight that "to imitate the hatred and violence of tyrants and murderers is the best way to take their place."
When politicians insult Muslims, when a mosque is vandalized, or a kid bullied, that doesn't make us safer. That's not telling it like it is. It's just wrong. It diminishes us in the eyes of the world. It makes it harder to achieve our goals. And it betrays who we are as a country.
Though there have been no major stories of Muslims being bullied, harmed, or threatened, this is the area where the President shows his concern. He wants to make sure that the American understands how hard it is being Islamic in America. All the while, he and his administration ignore the true victims.
Although studies prove that Jews are overwhelmingly the victims of hate crimes in America; although the Obama administration itself has targeted Christians and Christianity through policies designed to punish those who refuse to violate their religious conscience; although a woman, Kim Davis, who was imprisoned for refusing to violate her Christian conscience, was sitting in the audience; although Christians are being fined and harassed and put out of business for refusing to celebrate same-sex weddings; although the mainstream media (especially CNN) regularly engages in anti-Christian hate speech, Obama was silent on their plight.
But is this not the tactic most used by those seeking to bring our government down? They pick a victim or a perceived one and play the part for all the political gain they can get. All the while, the Left makes those victims a special class, subverting or openly challenging those who would most oppose their agenda.
But Muslims, the group most-protected by American elites, including the use of lies by the likes of the Washington Post's Philip Bump; including CNN anchor Chris Cuomo comparing those concerned with our disastrous and deadly refugee screening process with the anti-Semites who turned away Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi Germany; including a full-hour of "Meet the Press" practically devoted to comparing Republicans to Nazis, that's the group Obama singles out as America's victims.
And what is worse, the GOP is assisting this effort by pandering to the immigrant as well. Rather than attacking the failed policies of the current administration and hitting at the hopefuls Clinton and Sanders in the process, the GOP chose the rebuttal of the SOTU to slam its own candidate.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley spoke to a national television audience and delivered the most visible and explicit shot yet by party grandees against what many see as the presidential front-runner's disastrously divisive rhetoric.
Though I am not a Trump fan, there seems to be no worse time to deal with such issues, once again proving that the GOP is neither conservative nor Christian.Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
