Obama’s Muslim surrender plot

One side benefit of Obama addressing Islam and Muslims so directly in his first couple weeks in office is that now conservatives are also addressing Islam and Muslims directly.  In addition to Charles Krauthammer’s latest shite, Frank Gaffney, of that paragon of journalistic scrupulousness, The Washington Times, bellows this unintentionally hilarious indictment.

How appropriate that Barack Obama featured Aretha Franklin in his Inaugural festivities since her signature song is “Respect.” Literally from the moment she finished belting out “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” on Jan. 20, the new president has been conveying his “respect” the Muslim world. Unfortunately, the way he practices it seems to be spelled S-U-B-M-I-S-S-I-O-N.

The white flag of surrender

And the stars-and-stripes flying above looked suspiciously like, you guessed it, the white flag of surrender.

Obama’s other sign of capitulation?  A radical re-“ranking” of the faiths of America.

For good measure, the new president described America as a country of “Muslims, Christians, Jews” and others – a presumably intentional upgrading of adherents to the faith of his father, Islam, from the second place position he accorded them in his State of the Union address several days before. (The rankings of both orderings obviously reflect something other than demographics; there are far fewer Muslims than Christians in the United States and, according to independent estimates, only half as many – or less – than Jews.)

Troublesome diminution of Jews aside, at least Obama stuck those heretical “others” in last place, where they belong.

To recap, it looks like President Obama is not only laying down in surrender to the militant masses of “Islam’s violent and hateful theo-political-legal program,” he is also encouraging a Muslim insurrection from within the homeland…by citing “Muslims” first in a list of religions in America.  I like where this is going.
