Let Me Translate: We Don't Believe Him - or You.

August 22, 2010

By C. Edmund Wright

Memo to the ruling class media: We are not ignorant or stupid. We've not forgotten Jeremiah Wright. It's not that we don't "know" what faith Obama subscribes to -- it's more that we don't believe him. Or you. Sorry. Not buying.

Besides, sometimes we just like to tweak you with our poll answers -- and use any poll as an excuse to "vote against Obama" in any way, shape or form.

Frankly, it has been equal parts comedy and insult to watch the ruling class media haplessly wrestle with the reality that millions of Americans believe Obama to be a Muslim. They are so clueless.

As if we needed any more proof-- this is simply another positive dose that the ruling class media and the country are divided by a huge gulf of philosophy, reality and experiences. And they are just beside themselves that a country that was concerned that Obama's (Christian?) pastor is a crazy nut in the spring and summer of 2008 can totally forget about all that in the summer of 2010 and call Obama a Muslim.

They so miss the point. We have forgotten none of that. If fact, apparently now more Americans are deciding to look into all of this and process it in light of Obama's actions.

So allow me to help the media out on this thorny confusing issue:

We know you claim him to be a Christian. We know Obama has at times claimed to be a Christian. We know Jeremiah Wright's Trinity Church claims to be some kind of Christian denomination. We simply doubt it. And the more we watch all of you, the less we are inclined to believe any of it.

(And by "we," I mean folks who would respond "Muslim" or "not sure" to your poll questions).

We also know his father was a Muslim. We know his stepfather was a Muslim. We know that under Sharia Law, he is a Muslim, and that much of the Muslim World regards him as a Muslim. We know his mother was an atheist. We know Obama sent a bureaucrat out to claim that NASA's top mission was Muslim outreach. We know he skipped the Boy Scout's 100th Anniversary bash. We know he's had a couple Freudian slips pertaining to his faith. We know he has called the Islamic call to prayer the most beautiful sound on earth.

We know that in light of all of this, some sycophantic White House spokesperson has the gall to say how "obvious" Obama's Christianity is. Depends on what the meaning of "obvious" is I guess.

There's more. So much more: American Thinker

Tijd om te vertrekken – Frankrijk is verloren

Door E.J. Bron

Alibekov is het zat. De 30-jarige conservatieve blogger, geboren in Frankrijk, pas getrouwd, met een goede universitaire opleiding, heeft zojuist besloten om zijn vaderland de rug toe te keren waar zijn grootouders tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog Joden hadden verstopt. Hij heeft zijn immigratiepapieren voor Canada al bijna voor elkaar. Hij zal spoedig vertrekken. De vermoedelijk volgende stap: de Verenigde Staten.
