Betrayal as Commiseration

In a speech at the Pentagon today, Obama made this forceful statement:

"As Americans, we will not or ever be at war with Islam."


First, his observation is a lie. Muslims are at war with us, whether we like or acknowledge it, or not. As I've said before, Islamic ambitions do not dissipate because we ignore them. This clash of cultures is a war that we will not win, unless we as a civilization face facts. Nor is the situation static. Each year, tens of thousands of Muslims freely enter our country -- some illegally, most under the auspices of current law. The problem isn't going away. It only will become worse, without a serious reevaluation of our supposed nondiscriminatory (or should I say non discreet) worldview.

Second, his claim reeks of gnostic arrogance. Obama has a little over two years left in office. No doubt he'll spend that time building the socialist edifice, brick by brick. And afterwards? What happens five, ten, fifteen, twenty years down the road? Has Obama built a time machine? Can he see into the future? Has the question of how he knows that we won't fall into a war with Islam in the future never occurred to him? Or is it that he assumes that the American people are too stupid for it ever to occur to them?

Third, Obama has insulted the victims of 9/11/01 and their families and friends. Obama's deceitful arrogance would have been wrong at any time, but saving it for this day of mourning and remembrance particularly is despicable. It's like a thumb in the eye for no reason. Why didn't he just have a televised event of himself urinating on the graves of the dead?

Fourth, his declaration constitutes a defense of Islam and Muslims. On the day commemorating the murders of 3,000 innocent people, Obama assures adherents of the terrorists' religion that we are not at war with them, and never will be at war with them. This exemplifies giving aid and comfort to the enemy, as many of those whom he reassures were moral and material supporters of the jihad attack. Remember Muslims dancing in the streets and handing out candy, the world over, as if celebrating a universal Mardi Gras? Those are the people whom we are not fighting, and will not fight, according to Obama.

I see nothing presidential, here. I detect not a whit of leadership. I sense no evidence of patriotism in his remark.

How can a man distill so much evil and so much dishonor into one, small utterance? In twelve words, he lied, exhibited arrogance and disdain for the American people, spat upon the wronged innocent, and defended the indefensible.

He is a master of the art of treachery.
