Founding Fathers Rip Obama’s Muslim ‘Fabric’

WND, August 3, 2014

President Obama’s remarks thanking Muslims for “building the very fabric of our nation” and claiming they were in part responsible for “the core of our democracy” have left many in and outside of Washington scratching their heads. But the Founding Fathers would find the comments even more baffling.

Far from incorporating Islam into America’s early tapestry, their own writings reveal the Founding Fathers were at war with the creed and its adherents.

In 1801, President Jefferson sent the Navy to the Barbary Coast to stop Islamic pirates’ reign of terror on U.S. merchant ships. Jefferson read the Quran to understand what was motivating the pirates, and he learned that the Muslim holy book commanded the faithful to “plunder and enslave” non-Muslims.

In 1814, after Tripoli broke its truce and began attacking U.S. ships again, former President John Adams wrote Jefferson a letter advising that Islam’s founder and prophet was “a military fanatic.” In another writing, he condemned Islamic law as “contemptible.”

His son and future president, John Quincy Adams, went further, arguing that the essence of Islam is “violence and lust: to exalt the brutal over the spiritual part of human nature.” He suggested the Quran’s commands to fight and conquer other lands “in the cause of Allah” were at odds with democracy, peace and the Judeo-Christian ethic on which America was founded.

“The precept of the Koran is perpetual war against all who deny that Muhammad is the prophet of God,” he added. “The vanquished may purchase their lives by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Muslim creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike by fraud or by force.”

Last month, celebrating the end of the Muslim holiday Ramadan, Obama extolled “the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.” He also claimed we share “common values” with Islam.

The population of Muslims in America remained so tiny after emancipation that not a single mosque was established in this country until 1934. Called the “Mother Mosque of America,” it stands today in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

No Muslims, in fact, are recorded fighting in the Civil War or World War I.

It wasn’t until immigration was liberalized in the 1960s that large waves of Muslims began moving to America. At that time, their presence totaled under 150,000. Though their numbers today total in the millions, Muslims still make up less than one percent (0.8 percent) of the population, according to the Pew Research Center, and will only account for 1.7 percent by 2030.

With such a small population, critics say it’s implausible that Muslim Americans would have the outsized influence on American society that Obama credits them with having.

Muslims did not establish their own political institutions in America until the 1980s, and they didn’t elect a representative to Congress until 2007.

    You must rewrite all history, browning and Islamizing, and teach this to the children. Eloi young are especially vulnerable and institutionally abused when thrown in among those who hate them.

    The unfortunate fact about Islam is that it picks the pocket and severs the limb, so I don’t think Thomas Jefferson would be OK with it. Certainly not in his back forty.

    I don’t usually laugh out loud (seriously).

    When I saw/heard that, I… laughed out loud (seriously)…

    • DonReynolds

      Outrageous! The Muslims have never had a tradition of democracy, but Obama insists they are the core of American democracy. How nice of them to care so much about a Christian nation. (barf)

        While informing White Americans “You didn’t build that”.

      Well, they did provide the Founding Fathers examples of what NOT to do. So yea, I can see the influence.

    57 states, Muslims having participated in creating the fabric of America… This guy apparently knows all the American history that my teachers “forgot” to teach me.

    Sly devils.

      “Muslims having participated in creating the fabric of America…”

      Well, there were some Zouave regiments in the Civil War. Do they count as part of “the fabric of America”?

    Quote: “The Judeo-Christian ethic on which America was founded.”

    Nice try…but America was founded on a Christian ethic. Judaic ethics (Mosaic; vengeful; eye-for-an-eye) are diametrically opposed to Christian ethics (turn the other cheek; love your enemies). Which is why the teachings of Jesus Christ were revolutionary in his time, and remain so in ours.

    And if you really want to get revolutionary, try pointing out that the Old Testament and the New Testament describe diametrically-opposed Gods.

    • TruthBeTold

      Look up the term Judeo-Christian in a dictionary.

      It was coined about 1900 when a new group of people entered the US in large numbers and wanted to change the historical dynamic. They succeeded. We’re now a Judeo-Christian nation instead of a Christian nation.

      • IstvanIN

        I almost stopped reading when I saw Judeo-Christian!

        • NoMosqueHere

          The essence of judaism is the ten commandments, which are an integral part of christianity. As Pope John Paul II said, Jews are the older brothers of christians are are worthy of respect.

          • Einsatzgrenadier

            The Catholic church also shielded pedophile priests from the criminal justice system and allowed them to sexually molest children with impunity. The Catholic church has zero moral credibility. Who cares what they think?

          • IstvanIN

            Not all Christians are Catholics and not all Catholics approve of how the pedophile priests were hidden.

          • SoulInvictus

            All Christians operate under a manual held and manipulated solely by Catholic clergy for a long, long time.
            Regardless of what rank and file goodhearted Catholic folks think, their leadership is an organized crime syndicate by any reasonable standard.

          • SentryattheGate

            The biased agenda press focused on Catholics but gov’t. schools have a lot more child rape going on than the Catholic church or amongst Muslims! And yet the leftist agenda mass media normalizes homosexuality and NAMBLA, and promotes the message that you’re a bigot if you’re opposed.

          • IstvanIN

            The press does not normalize NAMBLA. Being as biased and unfair as they are does not get us converts, it just makes us look like the losers they are.

          • SentryattheGate

            The press was quite kind to Alfred Kinsey,”sex researcher”/pedophile, and gave rave reviews of the 2004 movie, starring Liam Neeson, glorifying Kinsey as a liberating hero! Kinsey was a critical success; it holds a 91% “fresh” rating on film review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.
            The film was a minor box office success.

            The press has given good reviews to a recent film (title?) about a sexual relationship between a soldier and a young boy. While trying to find you the title I came across this review of another movie (2002): FOR A LOST SOLIDER tells the story of a Dutch boy’s emotional and sexual relationship with a young adult American solider during World War II. The film presents the relationship as a loving and often magical one–and asks the viewer to consider if such relationships are intrinsically abusive or if they might, in extraordinary instances, have validity and even integrity.
            It should be very obvious that the subject and issues raised are likely to provoke a knee-jerk reaction in most people–Those who watch FOR A LOST SOLIDER thoughtfully and with an open mind will find it forces them to define their own ideas about what is and is not abusive.

          • SoulInvictus

            How anyone in their right mind with children still attends a Catholic church, I simply fail to comprehend.

          • Carney3

            The Church gets a bum rap on this. Other denominations and secular institutions such as public schools, day care centers, athletic leagues, etc., are no less likely to have such scandals but attracted far less attention from the bitterly anti-Catholic media, and from shyster lawyers who realized that thousands of independent “Pastor JimBob Ministries” congregations are a lot more trouble to go after than the presumed jackpot in each diocese and archdiocese. In fact the proportion of Catholic priests who have such predilections and behaviors is much lower than the general population. If you had to put your children alone with one of two people and the only information you had is that one is a Catholic priest and one is not, the ONLY rational choice is to put them with the priest.

            You refer to the Church as a whole, but this problem is largely confined to Ireland and the United States. The structure of the Church permits broad latitude for bishops to set internal policy for their dioceses. From the 1960s onward, many bishops were left-leaning dissenters from historic Catholic teaching and morality on sexuality, and began allowing homosexuals to infiltrate seminaries. Even many conservatives accepted the word of psychologists and psychiatrists who pronounced various offenders “cured” – the intractability of sexual disorders was much more poorly understood by expert opinion at the time, and this, NOT malice, was the primary contributor to the problem of moving an offending priest to a new parish. The Church also has a deeply rooted culture of respecting the privacy of the confessional (even being willing to be jailed or executed rather than reveal what is said therein) and in many countries had significant authority (such as in education, marriage, health care, and especially in internal affairs) in parallel with or external to that of the state – this was not a sinister conspiracy but a matter of faith and culture that contributed to a problem that non-Catholics have difficulty grasping.

            The overwhelming majority of cases in these scandals were homosexuals involved with teenage youths. While illegal, inappropriate, and in violation of Church rules, that is not pedophilia, which involves PRE-pubescent children. Referring to the scandal as one of pedophilia served a number of purposes:

            – shielding homosexuals as a group, and protecting the clique of homosexuals that had infiltrated the Church beginning most strongly in the past Vatican 2 1960s from a sweeping crackdown and mass expulsion;

            – smearing the Church and undermining its effectiveness as the primary force for conservative social values.

            Finally, it must be emphasized that the Church has for centuries forbidden its priests from engaging in ANY sexual activity of ANY kind. Any act contrary to this has always been a grave violation of Church rules for its ordained priests, separate from any secular or governmental rules. To claim the Church as such permitted or tolerated this misconduct is a lie, and those who say so are dupes, or deliberate liars themselves – NO other possibilities exist.

            For every one Catholic priest abuse scandal, I think he hear about or see or read 20 involving some sports or athletic program.

            The Talmud and “muh Holocaust” capture the true spirit of Judaism better then anything biblical.

          • Sick of it

            Considering that they follow the words of the rabbis first and foremost, sure.

          • IstvanIN

            The Ten Commandments are a very good set of rules and society would be better off if we followed them, otherwise we should live according to the teachings of Christ (New Testament).

          • SoulInvictus

            “The essence of judaism is the ten commandments”

            It’s really not. That is a misconception held by Christians with a zionist bent. Don’t take my word for it… it’s too much to go into here, but if you know a practicing jew that will honestly discuss it, ask for fun sometime.

            To say the analysis and commentary (that are accepted as law) that have been handed down are …comprehensive is such a massive understatement on the scale of comparing US tax code to …I don’t know, something really simple.

            Or for some really interesting reading, look up The King’s Torah.
            Replete with gems like “The prohibition ‘Thou Shalt Not Murder’ applies only “to a Jew who kills a Jew,” write Rabbis Yitzhak Shapira and Yosef Elitzur”…”Non-Jews are “uncompassionate by nature” and attacks on them “curb their
            evil inclination,” while babies and children of Israel’s enemies may be
            killed since “it is clear that they will grow to harm us.””

          • Long Live Dixie

            The Pope is an apostate. How dense can you be? Jews have been against Christianity for 2000 years.

          • Alexandra1973

            Catholicism was never Christian. The first Christians were Jews.

          • Carney3

            Which Pope? The first one, St. Peter? The second one, St. Linus? At which specific point did a Pope become an “apostate”?

            Are you aware that the Bible did not exist for the first several centuries of Christianity, and that the Church created the Bible by deciding which of the many religious texts circulating were inspired and which were not?

          • kikz2

            those are noahide laws and pertain only to gentiles….

        • Bossman

          That is because you don’t know the history of Christianity. That it began as a Jewish religion.

          • MBlanc46

            Jesus and his direct followers were Jews and kept the Jewish law. Paul, the second founder of Christianity, was Jew, but held that following the Jewish law was not necessary for Christians. Many of Paul’s converts were Gentiles and Gentiles soon became the majority of Christians. Even in the New Testament period there was anti-Judaism in Christianity, and it increased in the Patristic period. Certainly by the time that Christianity became the official Roman religion in the early fourth century, it was no longer in any way Jewish.

          • http://www.presstitutes.org/ Mike Conrad

            Jesus was born a Jew but transcended that somewhat emphatically.
            See the Sermon on the Mount for examples.

          • MBlanc46

            Only if you don’t consider the Sermon on the Mount the work of a Jewish prophet.

          • http://www.presstitutes.org/ Mike Conrad

            Sort of silly to get bogged down in labels, considering the time in question and our remove from it. Notwithstanding that, the ‘antitheses’ are unmistakably a profound and comprehensive renunciation of Mosaic ethics.

          • MBlanc46

            To really answer this we’d have to have a definitive definition of “Jew” and a definitive interpretation of Jesus’ teaching, neither of which are available. I’m not a NT scholar by any means, but I don’t know of any passage where Jesus clearly, explicitly rejects the Jewish law. Re the Antitheses from Matthew, they surely show a contrast between Jesus’ ethics and Mosaic, but whether they’re a renunciation is another question. Jesus says he’s come to fulfill the Law, not abolish it. I don’t read Greek, so I don’t know what the original written document has, and Jesus very likely would have said what he said in Aramaic, and that is lost forever. So I guess people will be arguing this one as long as there are Christians.

        • SoulInvictus

          I’ve all but sworn off Christianity. The churches idolize Israel so much it’s sickening. Problem is, religion is probably the only force strong enough to counterbalance leftist insanity and churches are almost the only venue where whites regularly congregate in solidarity.
          It’s been a long time since I heard a hellfire and brimstone preacher (on anything other than maybe gays) and most go waaay over the top with love one another-ness/pathological altruism.

          I could see a potentially huge market for a moderately white nationalist church. Subtle but politically active. Home schooling and finishing school for the girls, MMA and gun training for the boys.

          • http://www.presstitutes.org/ Mike Conrad

            Look up Marcion of Sinope if you haven’t. If possible, try to find hard-copy sources (i.e. books) published before WWII. Because more recent ‘scholarship’ promotes a certain ‘agenda’ seeking to disqualify his thinking. Which could be revolutionary if it ever were popularized.

      • Bossman

        Christianity emerged out of Judaism. The first Christians were all Jews.

        • TruthBeTold

          Jesus and His teachings were rejected by the Jews of His time.

          Few Jews in His time would have accepted His teaching as Jewish and just as few Jews today seriously consider Jesus to be Jewish though they like to say it to tick off Christians.

          • Bossman

            St. Paul aka Saul of Tarsus was a Jew and the man chiefly responsible for spreading Christianity all over the Roman world.

          • SoulInvictus

            You left out the first act of his career. And likely why he was held up as an example.

          • TruthBeTold

            If you were a Republican and you became a Democrat, you would be a Democrat.

            As with Jesus, I don’t believe any Jew would take ownership of Saul/Paul other than to use it against Christians in an argument.

          • Sick of it

            Right. He spread Christianity all over the Roman world. Most of the people he brought to the faith were Greeks and Romans.

          • IstvanIN

            Remember it was the Jews who had Jesus crucified by Pontius Pilate.

          • SoulInvictus

            I like to think Jesus (which wasn’t his birth name anyway) was likely Apollonius of Tyana, and therefore Greek. Most of the New Testament is Greek anyway in both language and Pythagorean philosophy, so it would fit. And would be much more palatable to me if it were so.
            Look it up, makes for interesting reading.

            I lived in Mobile for much of my childhood in the ’80s. Of course, there were virtually no Hispanics then. I really like certain aspects of Mobile, even though a lot has changed since then. We have a condo in Baldwin County, and I’d move there permanently if possible.

          and another point i wanted to make.. the jews appropriated all of their traditions from other older traditions that in no way are considered ‘hebrew’ or ‘jewish’…….they were simply appropriators, even of, and most importantly, the concept of monotheism.

          if anyone cares to read up on these appropriations of both judiasm and christianity from much older cultures and traditions, d.m. murdoch, is good place to start….. that is if you can ‘handle’ comparative religion, and not be offended by a different viewpoint on the origins of your chosen religion…. she has an extensive and well researched archive…. and you just might learn something….

        The 10 Commandments came from Yahweh.

          But did you know that the popular ten commandments are a first draft? Look it up.
          I guess “Thou shalt not seethe a kid in its mother’s milk.” wasn’t as inspiring as “Thou shall not covet.”

      • http://www.presstitutes.org/ Mike Conrad

        Yes, the Old Testament and the New were combined in the Bible. I doubt anyone here doesn’t know that. But by whom and for what reason? Now, how many Christians practice actual Christianity? I don’t know. But I’m reminded of Chesterton: “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried.”

        • kikz2

          as to the who….that would be Constantine…as to the why….. he needed the political merger to solidify his powerbase…. Council of Nicea had to deal w/the various sects or heresies as they saw them, collected all of the errant heretical scriptures, and in usual RC fashion destroyed them, as they didn’t conform to the RC’s ideals of dogma…….the leftovers which they didn’t destroy, which tend to be more sane and less contradictory than what were cobbled together are known collectively as the Nag Hammadi..

      The Founding Fathers were basically atheists. Jefferson once said that he didn’t care if the American people worshiped many gods or no god.

      • Whirlwinder

        Bossman and Soul. The majority of the founding fathers were Christians. Go study history and stop spouting your opinions

        • SoulInvictus

          As I said “some were Deists”.
          Thomas Paine and Ethan Allen for example.
          Others were Deist influenced Christians who retained Christian loyalties and practice but were influenced by Deism.
          This included Adams, Washington, Franklin and Monroe.
          If they were Masons (many if not most were), they were likely more in line with Deist thinking but Christian culturally/socially.

          • kikz2

            many were scot rite freemasons, in that rite, one only has to admit belief in a supreme deity and that man is invested with an immortal soul, they don’t have to name the deity. york rite, you do as “God”.

        • kikz2

          you can’t handle the truth….apparently.

        they were not atheists.. many of them were deists.

        • DonReynolds

          Atheism was often illegal and very much a civil disability. They could not serve on juries or even give sworn testimony in court, even if they were a witness. They were kept out of public office…..much of which stemmed from their inability to give a Christian oath, which was required by law at the time.
          Ben Franklin was certainly one of the Founders….probably one of the best. Even though he led a “less than pious life” and at times scandalous, he was raised Presbyterian, but had a regular pew at the Episcopalian church in Philly.
          After becoming a self-made man, a successful man, he felt he needed to attend the Episcopalian church …..where so many of the Philly elite attended.

    • Long Live Dixie

      I see America’s founding influences as being more Deist/secular than Christian. There is talk in the US constitution of an ambiguous ‘providence’ and ‘creator’, both of which are consistent with the Deism that was popular with Enlightenment intellectuals back then. The only hint of Christianity in the US constitution is in the last paragraph when the phrase ‘in the year of our Lord’ is used.

      However, I do agree with you that Judeo-Christian is a nonsensical phrase. It looks like AmRen is trying hard this week to alienate its readers.

      • Eagle_Eyed

        I remember when Christians around 40 years ago would identify themselves solely as “Christian” and/or spiritual. Traditional Christmas music was still celebrated in the public sphere before we had rabid multicultural changes.

    • kikz2

      you really should refer to the ‘treaty of tripoli’ they were discussing.. Article 11..states that…” in no way was the US founded on the Christian religion..” PERIOD.

      • HE2

        You are correct, kikz.
        Article 11 of the Treaty of Tripoli clearly states that ” in no way was the US founded on the Christian religion..” .

      • http://www.presstitutes.org/ Mike Conrad

        Good point; I forgot about that. However it’s a bit of a leap to imagine that Treaty (fashioned for a specific and foreign diplomatic purpose) as anything remotely equivalent to a Constitutional imperative. Countries put all manner of clauses into treaties, and that particular one doesn’t bind the US in any way.

        • kikz2

          well then, if it’s originating documentational reference you desire… “Nature’s God” is it, from the Declaration. That term is clearly Deist, and in no way could be could be construed as remotely Christian or revealed.

Muslims haven’t built or contributed anything of significance to America’s fabric – except agitate and divide our citizenry.

    Correction on that last statement of mine. They did contribute to destroying our Twin Towers and indirectly contributed to having to rebuild them, I suppose?

    Gee, thanks muslims!

    • Bossman

      You’re correct about that.

  • TruthBeTold

    I think this is a very good video showing how Muslims tried to destroy Europe after the fall of Rome:

    Mr. Obama is a multi-dimensional tapestry of idiocy.

  • http://saboteur365.wordpress.com/ bigone4u

    Obama is often in a drug-induced stupor. His handlers must shudder every time he goes off script. He’s also a pathological liar, typical of those of his race. Does America deserve the president it has? Yes, because anyone stupid enough to have cast a vote for the mullato in chief should have seen right through his nonsense.

    Honesty, maturity, and good judgment are white qualities. Obama has proved to me that NO NEGRO has those qualities.

    • Rhialto

      Your prez lacks those three qualities, but he has a solid 3 digit IQ (>120?). This has made him much more dangerous to normal White men.

  • Mary

    Obama is of the ilk that minimizes the Christianity of many of the Founders, such as claiming that all were free-thinkers or deists, and now purports that Islam is the virtual bedrock of our Republic.

  • Bunky

    From the halls of Montezuma to shores of Tripoli….
    The fabric of the Barbary coast pirates maybe.

  • DonReynolds

    There should be a series of paintings commissioned for the White House. One can be a painting of the brave towel-head patriots making a heroic stand at the battle of Bunker Hill. Another can show all the Muslims in the boat rowing Washington across the icy Delaware river. Maybe a western scene showing Muslims on camels fighting the Indians on the plains, with buffalo in the background. Or maybe crowds of Muslims storming the beaches on D-Day, or Muslims following Teddy Roosevelt up San Juan hill. Better still…..a painting showing those lovely turbaned Muslims in their long flowing robes, lining up to sign the Declaration of Independence…..or just paint over the John Turnbull painting and change the heads to show long beards and bedsheets wrapped around their heads. Then everyone will get the idea!

    • propagandaoftruth

      Hey, do you write history books for Common Core? Think I’ve seen that…

        Ha Ha. Anybody can do that!

      Those are some good ideas that would drive home the point for some whites. Unfortunately, there’s a mass of low-information voters who would miss the sarcasm and actually believe that muslims contributed greatly to our founding.

    • SoulInvictus

      The Washingon Monument could be converted into a lovely minaret for daily prayer calls. The various domes of DC could be given that signature arabic slope, a few buckets of gold paint, and voilalalalalalalalalalala… We’s Muslims.

      If this all ends with Pelosi and Michelle muted and shrouded in burqas, I might be ok with it.

      • DonReynolds

        Oooooo…..you definitely have some great ideas. Need to switch from football to chopping on weekends…..hands, feet, heads. It is just for show anyway…..I mean, who needs an unfaithful wife anyway?

        • SoulInvictus

          Sounds good. The beautiful irony is that these same idiot leftists that will go all in on the muzzies just to spite white christian conservatives seem oblivious that theirs would be the first heads on the blocks. Somehow I see the rednecks and turbans out in the woods or desert shooting AK’s, very comfortable with discussing the latest round of homosexual beheadings…
          Wasn’t long ago our afternoon picnics had similar but rope based entertainment.
          And it boggles the mind how wealthy Jews would cut off their own noses in spite by supporting Dems in pro-muslim policy.

    It is no more ridiculous than when I hear people say that this country was founded on “Judeo-Christian” values. Nowhere in the Declaration of Independence do I find the names of Bernie Schwartz, Izzie Goldstein, or Sol Rosenberg.

    • TruthBeTold

      Get an old dictionary and look up Judeo Christian. The term came into existence about 1900 when a new group of immigrants decided they would re-write American history in their favor.

    • NoMosqueHere

      Nor will you find O’Reilly or Hannity, or Cuomo or Falcone.

      • Luca

        Those are Christian names.

        I believe you are trying to point to ethnicities but the subject was religious values.

    • Paleoconn

      You win the internet today. There are few things that rile me up more than that bullshit ‘Judeo-Christian’ expression. I bet one cannot find any trace of that fraudulent term in any text pre-1960s.

    All Obama does is lie. Big deal. Meanwhile, you all are aware that all of the world’s history is being rewritten to include EVERYBODY who had nothing to do with it. EVERYTHING that Whites have done, have accomplished, has been stretched, convoluted, or down right lied about to include all the other loser races. EVERYTHING. (I’m waiting for the story of Sir Isaac Newton’s black butler being behind his ideas.) (There is somebody, somewhere figuring out how to make this look true). What we really must ask is this: Why has the rest of the world been whipped into a frenzy to hate White people. There IS a war on Whites, that spans the globe. Not, that there are that many of us anymore. My God, I feel like I am being hunted! They are after our genes, our culture, our art, our architecture, our literature, our folklore, OUR VERY COUNTRIES!!!!! These stupid coloreds actually think that if they live in Paris, London, or New York, have ethnic plastic surgery, attend White universities, they will magically become WHITE. Seriously, become a blonde, become a redhead, change your eye color to blue or green. Lighten your skin, straighten your hair! Make your jawline retreat, remove your sloping forehead, change the bridge of your nose, reduce your flared nostrils, get rid of your epicanthic fold eyelids, YOU TOO WILL BE WHITE!!!!! NOPE. That is why our DNA is being hunted. That is why bi-racial children are hyped. That is why we are being fed the concept that bi-racial is the best looking in the world. No, it isn’t. Plus which, add in the fact that bi-racial people have no one to donate organs Bi-racials are confused, and, angry. Read what they have to say! I don’t know, maybe Asian/Black children are cool with it. But, let’s face it, the only miscegenation the world is interested in accomplishing, is White with whomever(but, Blacks, needing the most help genetically, are clearly the first choice).

    “In 1801, President Jefferson sent the Navy to the Barbary Coast to stop Islamic pirates’ reign of terror on U.S. merchant ships.”
    The way this is taught in the schools now days is that Tripoli, an arab muslim nation was one of the first countries we established relations with.

    It’s just more and more of the same.

  • none of your business

    Obama never did say what those accomplishments and contributions are did he?

  • TruthBeTold

    President Obama’s remarks thanking Muslims for “building the very fabric
    of our nation” and claiming they were in part responsible for “the core
    of our democracy”

    Examples?

  • RyanP

    Obama himself must know how ridiculous this was. I suspect it was put out there as bait so any conservative who called him on it could be labelled racist.

      I doubt Oogabooga is that smart. He just opened his mouth and something stupid crawled out; that’s all that happened. Remember, this is the guy who while president of the Harvard Law Review never wrote anything for that publication. He’s an empty suit.

  • SoCal88

    No amount of Muslim this-or-that can even come close to making up for the death and destruction they have caused. Obama has no concept of truth.

    • TruthBeTold

      But he talks pretty and makes Muslims feel good about themselves.

    “No Muslims, in fact, are recorded fighting in the Civil War or World War I”

    No Muslims fought in the American Army during WWI. . . I believe the Ottoman Empire, with plenty of Muslims, fought on the side of the Germans. .

    • http://www.amren.com/ Michael Christopher Scott

      Plenty of Muslims from what are now Pakistan and Bangladesh – part of what during World War One was British India – fought for the British in secondary theaters, like Palestine, Mesopotamia and east Africa. Austria-Hungary had annexed Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1908, which was the proximate cause of the war. This territory contained – and still contains – lots of Muslims, so certainly Austria-Hungary conscripted plenty of them. The French army would have had Muslims from colonial possessions like Algeria. While the Zuaves wore North African attire and were originally Muslim Berbers, by World War One these were mainly ethnic French Catholics, though the Sipahi cavalry in the French military were native Arab Muslims.

      All of that said, I don’t imagine any Muslims at all fought in the US armed forces during World War One.

  • Jefferson

    Muslims were such a minuscule percentage of the U.S population before the 1965 immigration act, that most Americans before 1965 probably never even heard of the words Muslim and Islam.

  • Bill

    He’s such an idiot.

  • Paleoconn

    Note that contrary to neocon claims that even the Founding Fathers intervened in foreign entanglements, Jefferson only went to war with the barbary pirates to protect US interests. Nothing like the liberal/neocon meddling in Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Ukraine, Yugoslavia, etc etc.

  • Mrfinoni

    the 1% want the Muslim oil without interruptions. They Muslims countries control the current oil reserves. The Presidential office must appear to be diplomatic. Its always about the money!!!!! Sadly the 1% think that life will be better for ‘them’ by eliminating the founders of modern civilization. Whites have created virtually everything for the last 600 years. The problem for the elite is that the center wont hold! I believe that if Whites are eliminated through miscegenation and Christianity marginalized to the point of impotence Western civilization will collapse into tribalism.

    • SoulInvictus

      Which is basically what is happening right now the world over…
      Wait till we’re single digit percentages of world population and the US is destitute with no military strength.

  • benvad

    Keith Ellison is a Black former Catholic convert to Islam. Not even a real muslim.

  • Augustus3709

    Others have already commented, but yes my spider-senses tingled when this article claimed John Quincy Adams spoke of “Judeo-Christian” origins of America.

    You could argue that the Founders would have known the stories of the Old Testament, but there certainly was no moral impetus in the USA originating out of the Talmud.

  • flitetym

    Funny how the first mosque in America wasn’t founded until the 1930’s and it was small. The left really hates the truth. They did nothing to build this nation.

    If he had just made a speech extolling their vibrancy and diversity and wonderful contributions of the last 30 years it would have been somewhat realistic. But to claim they have always been around is just nonsense. Note he did not cite one concrete actual contribution.
    The Democrats are a strange coalition, gays, anti marriage, pro sexual sluttiness, anti male pro intensive destructive regulation of business joining with muslims who are pro marriage at an early age, pro male, pro submission of women, mostly pro capitalist and business and definitely anti government regulation of their crooked corrupt business practices.

    Of course conservatives are just as bad, pro marriage and children but against a family living wage for the average man, Christian zionists who lobby for endless wars all over the world, compassion and Christian charity for everyone in the world but the average American White man, a business community that wants to replace every White worker from Drs to dishwashers with a non White foreigner, reluctance to discuss black on White crime.

  • none of your business

    The schools really twist around Jefferson’s dealing with the Algerian pirates who captured and enslaved hundreds of American sailors. Our first contact with muslims was a letter Jefferson received from the Bey of Algiers. “We have learned that America is no longer under the protection of the extortion money Britain pays us to protect its shipping. So if you want Algeria to leave American shipping and sailors alone pay up.” Jefferson said absolutely not. That is where that saying “millions for defense not one cent for tribute” comes from. Our first foreign war was an expedition to Tripoli to free the American sailors. bomb the port, and force the Bey to leave American shipping alone or face more military attacks.
    The schools now claim that our very first diplomatic dealings were with Turkey and the Bey of Algeria and cover up the enslavement, theft of the ships and extortion.
