Looks like Obambi is having another Jimmy Carter moment. Two heinous events in the Middle East by those who hate us for being us.
First, the murder of four Americans including our ambassador in Libya by people who ought to be thanking all Americans for freeing them from Wacky Qaddafi.
Second, the storming of our embassy in Cairo, with the excuse du jour being some movie made in the United States that may have told unpleasant truths about Mohammed, the founder of the “Religion of Peace.”
Now, you may call those who storm an American embassy “insane” as one well-meaning but wrong guest said on Fox&Friends this a.m. But, I suspect that this crowd, and those who whipped them up into proper form on 9/11 (of all days; hmm, what a coincidence, eh?), were coldly rational: here’s a way to tug at Uncle Sam’s beard, and Obambi is such a coward that nothing will happen.
Turns out that the Islamis were right as rain. Not only will Obambi do nothing, his State Department issued this bit of dhimmitude:
The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.
That’s the opening line: stop that, you American miscreants exercising your First Amendment rights. You’re offending the natives.
Obambi, apparently realizing that this was a bridge too far towards unilateral surrender, even for a guy whose middle name is Hussein, had the embassy retract it’s vile statement. But then Obambi had this to say:
“While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants.”
Still leading with the notion that someone here in the States did something bad by exercising their First Amendment rights.
I agree, that one should not needlessly denigrate someone else’s faith. Unless that faith has led its followers to riot, burn, and kill others. In which case, bring it on. The point is that no one on this planet has the right not to be offended. Free speech isn’t limited to decorous, polite discourse. It includes being roughed up, at least verbally. Can’t take it? Respond in kind with your own free speech. Or simply ignore speech that is offensive.
And to Hell with all those followers of Mohammed who can’t learn to live in peace with those who criticize them. In words that would be understood in the Bronx, go f*** yourselves.
