Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.
Simply restated as "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."
Barack Obama, from his book "The Audacity of Hope"
We all know what happened at Fort Hood. A muslim army major with radical islamic views, beliefs and background started shooting US soldiers while yelling "allahu akbar" which is known as muslim terrorists' battle cry. He killed 13 Americans and wounded many others.
Barack Hussein Obama, who called a white cop "stupid" for arresting his black professor buddy without feeling the need to get more details told us not to jump to conclusions about Fort Hood attack. He did not condemn the attack, he was "frighteningly insensitive" to the victims of the attack. He preferred to stay in DC and play politics trying to pass government care with Pelosi instead of visiting the families of the victims.
Here is the latest from barack Hussein Obama:
President Obama says "we cannot fully know" what led Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan to kill 13 people and wound 38 others at Fort Hood, Texas Thursday.
Hasan reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar!" before the killings, wrote Internet postings justifying Muslim suicide bombings, considered U.S. forces the enemy, and opposed American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as wars on Islam. His rampage at Ft. Hood has the markings of an act of Islamic terrorism.
But in his weekly address, Obama says, "We cannot fully know what leads a man to do such a thing." And while the killings were "heartbreaking" and "despicable" and "devastating," the president says, it is important to remember not only that Hasan's fellow soldiers responded bravely in coming to the aid of the wounded but also that "Americans of every race, faith and station" have served in the U.S. armed forces. "They are Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and nonbelievers," Obama says. "They reflect the diversity that makes this America."
Obama: 'We cannot fully know' motive of Ft. Hood shooter; in address on killings, president celebrates diversity of armed forces by Byron York - Washington Examiner
Now we know why he did not want us to jump to conclusions: He wanted to get CAIR's stand so he can spread their propaganda.
I am speechless. This was a terror attack on our soil and it happened on Obama's watch. 13 Americans killed. Even if you were arrived from Mars yesterday, with just a cursory reading of the news, even with the spin the phony jouranlists are putting, you will be able to figure out why Malik Hasan did what he did. You cannot be that stupid to claim "We cannot fully know what leads a man to do such a thing." You must be covering up especially when you know the history of islamist terrorism. Do we not know what lead muslims to fly planes to World Trade Center in 2001? Do we not know what motivated them to attack USS Cole? Do we not know what motivated the recently arrested muslim in Dallas to use his cell phone thinking it will detonate a car bomb and kill Americans? Do we really not know why this muslim major was dressed in all white -- ready to become a martyr -- in the morning of the attack?
Come on Mr. Bogus POTUS, I understand your promise to stand with the muslims but why would you insist on keeping that promise even when they kill US soldiers? You have not kept many of your other promises after all.
You can also ask other muslims if they know why this muslim attacked American soldiers:
They have a better idea than Barack Hussein Obama.
Barack Hussein Obama wants us to celebrate diversity. Phony journalists who are fearless to target so called "right-wing extremists" are wishing this guy wasn't muslim. They want us to believe that this was one of those violent acts by a nutcase who just happened to be muslim. They want us to believe an Army Major who has never seen action had post--traumatic stress disorder. As Michelle Malkin states we have to read British papers to get Ft. Hood jihadist news. I understand phony journalists' cowardice, but I have a hard time understanding why a President of the United States would be afraid of muslim terrorists... If it is not cowardice on his part to see and state the obvious then what is it? 13 Americans killed, many more wounded by a guy with a history of radical islamism who yelled the muslim terrorist battle cry while shooting Americans. Some saw warning signs ahead of US Army shooting but said nothing for fear of seeming bigoted. Yep, they were silenced by the politically correct speech. They celebrated diversity as Obama instructs us to do now. How many more Americans need to be killed before we celebrate diversity and multiculturalism?
Really folks. think about it for a minute... You are a multiculturalist who is celebrating diversity and you find out one of the cultures you are celebrating wants to eliminate you and your culture... What do you do? Do you keep celebrating or take steps to defend and preserve your culture and yourself? How can we can celebrate a backward 6th century culture and ideology that demands an absolute submission and conformity to its rules? Are we out of our minds?
Basic common sense tells me, in light of the history of islamist terrorism, this attacker's background, known beliefs and views, eyewitness accounts of the attack, this was an act of terror. It may be a one man act, but it still is an act of terror. Remember mujahid Carlos Bledsoe? What happened to that invetigation by the way?
Common sense also tells me that there is something terribly wrong with a Commander in Chief who willfully ignores an obvious threat and asks everyone to look the other way.
