No, Mr. President. I will NOT be “tolerant” of radical Islam – neither should you

Posted by: ST on September 12, 2010 at 7:50 pm

I missed this quote from President Obama yesterday regarding the Islamofascist thugs who murdered 3,000 innocents on 9-11:

President Obama stressed that America was not at war with Islam as he decried the “sorry band of men” who attacked the nation nine years ago in memorial ceremonies at the Pentagon on Saturday.

“The perpetrators of this evil act didn’t simply attack America; they attacked the very idea of America itself — all that we stand for and represent in the world,” Obama said. “And so the highest honor we can pay those we lost, indeed our greatest weapon in this ongoing war, is to do what our adversaries fear the most — to stay true to who we are, as Americans; to renew our sense of common purpose; to say that we define the character of our country, and we will not let the acts of some small band of murderers who slaughter the innocent and cower in caves distort who we are.”

“Sorry band of men”? As Doug Powers rightly points out, 19 radical Islamic plane hijackers on a jihad mission to kill thousands warrant a little bit more of a strong description than that:

Only Barack Obama could make a murderous global Islamic terrorist organization sound like the Bay City Rollers.

That’s just one step away from “wascally wabbits” isn’t it?

I remember some people (mostly on the left) slamming Bush over his intial comments when news of the terror attacks first broke across the country. He called the terrorists “folks.” But Bush was and is a plain spoken man. His remarks were not exactly “prepared.” He knew after that what to call the 9-11 hijackers and the thugs who share their sick ideology, and it wasn’t “folks” and it wasn’t a “sorry band of men.”

President Obama, on the other hand, is supposedly “very well-spoken” and, as our liberal friends like to remind us so often, he was educated at Harvard, which means he’s supposed to be smarter than everyone else (I guess?). Not only that, but President Obama’s remarks WERE prepared. I would say his speechwriter deserves a reprimand but I’m sure the President doesn’t read anything off the teleprompter he hasn’t approved first.

But what struck me more than the “Sorry band of men” nonsense was how he described the hijackers’ motivations:

“They may wish to drive us apart, but we will not give in to their hatred and prejudice,” he said. “For Scripture teaches us to ‘get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.’

“They may seek to spark conflict between different faiths, but as Americans we are not — and never will be — at war with Islam. It was not a religion that attacked us that September day — it was al-Qaeda, a sorry band of men which perverts religion. And just as we condemn intolerance and extremism abroad, so will we stay true to our traditions here at home as a diverse and tolerant nation.”

Spoken like a bonafide ignorant liberal who clearly has no idea what the Koran actually calls for. Here are a more than a few hints, President Obama. Don’t wanna read it? Ok. Here are a couple of clues: It calls for the subjugation of women. It preaches violence against any woman who “disobeys” her husband and/or male relatives. It is intolerant of of non-believers to the point it advocates an “any means necessary” approach to make them submit – or die. Don’t believe me? Ask the few surviving victims and the thousands of families of victims alive or dead courtesy of the “religion of peace” about how “peaceful” a religion Islam is.

Ask Dr. Wafa Sultan.
Ask Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
Ask other prominent secular Muslims:

Mona Abousenna
Magdi Allam
Mithal Al-Alusi
Shaker Al-Nabulsi
Nonie Darwish
Afhin Ellian
Tawfik Hamid
Shahriar Kabir
Hasan Mahmud
Ibn Warraq
Mourad Wahba
Manda Zand Ervin
Bonafsheh Zand-Bonazzi

And there are others here.

For a brief time long ago, I used to subscribe to the belief that there was a “moderate” element to Islam. I don’t anymore. Yes, there are Muslim Islamists out there who are not hateful, who are respectful of the religous beliefs and faiths of others, etc, but my opinion is that these Muslims are not full-fledged Islamists – and that’s a good thing. There is hope for that minority of Islamists that they can turn away from the evil “religion” we know as Islam.

That is, if they’re not murdered first.

No, Mr. President – I will not be “tolerant” of this religion, not in any way, shape, form, or fashion. Doesn’t mean I’ll get violent, but it DOES mean that I will speak out strongly against it, loudly and often. Islam, which is the law of the land in many Muslim countries via the use of the Koran as their “standard,” stands for everything we’re supposed to be against. Secularists and non-secularists alike can see this. It’s a crying, outrageous shame that you and so many of your fellow “enlightened” liberals do not.

    Agree with you Sister. No such thing as a moderate muslim. They intend to destroy our religion and society.Look at Europe where they have destroyed the capitals creating ghettos . No more tolerance for these people. They can go back to their “islamic” countries.

  2. Carlos says:

    “…a sorry band of men…”

    Of multiple millions?

    What does that make the Nazi army of Germany circa 1938? Just a bunch of well-meaning roughnecks?

    What a maroon.

    And yes, there is no such thing as a “moderate” muslim. One is either muslim or not, and believes in the precepts and demands of the Quran or doesn’t.

    One can’t be “kinda pregnant.” One either is or isn’t.

  3. Laura says:

    He even takes it to the next grammatical level of removing responsibility-

    a sorry band of men which perverts religion.

    A band which perverts, instead of men who pervert.

    Okay, I’m picking nits. But he’s someone who is lauded for being so well spoken – and who employs speechwriters who are paid to be – and I have a hard time thinking this is accidental. I’m starting to believe that he thinks it’s understandable for AQ to attack us, given what eeevil-mongering, global-wealth-stealing, empire-builders we are.

    We will ‘politically-correct’ ourselves right into Shiria Law if he and his weak, ignorant ilk have their way. It is a victory mosque they intend to build at Ground Zero but the left will defend it with their lives if necessary while decrying Christianity as a racist, hate-mongering cult.

  5. The President insists that we are not at war with Islam but the reality is that Islam is at war (jihad) with us. Islam started this. Islam declared war on us. Islam made itself our enemy. We need to stop letting Muslims into the United States and we need to stop Sharia and mosque building.

    I guess now Imam Rauf is saying he wouldn’t have proposed the new GZ mosque if he’d known what a firestorm it would produce.

    Either the guy is the biggest fool on earth, he’s as big a liar as Duh-1, or both.

    My vote is for both.

  8. Neo says:

    Obama has become a “Human Rights” dhimmi.

  9. Kate says:

    Again, more of the same from the appeaser in chief. He uses The Holy Bible out of context, too. This verse from Ephesian was meant for Christians and how they react to injustices of their day….not today’s modern acts of violence against Western civilization as a whole. This was more pointed toward a society that was persecuting Christians. So how do you stretch it to include those who purposefully twist Christian truths and add Islamic lies in order to promote a form of government that denies the most important tenets of Christianity…in fact, they deny Jesus, who is the Son of God and therefore God.

    Just a little theological poke at a man who supposed sat in a Christian Church for 26 years….I will pray that the Holy Spirit convicts him each and every time he chooses to USE his spin on the Truth of God.

  10. NC Cop says:

    No surprise there. The left has consistently tried to make 9/11 sound like a fraternity prank gone too far.

  11. Tango says:

    ….our fearless leader still can’t bring himself to utter the word “terrorist” can he?

    An objective without a goodplan is only a dream in my opinion
