A few days ago Barry Obama was inaugurated. By giving him their trust, the 47% of beneficiaries of the welfare state that Romney spoke about, sealed the fate of the United States. Not only did they cheerfully ignore the grim reality and chose to think that their entitlements are money falling from heaven in an endless supply, but they also elected for the second time a guy who is their mirror image.
Watching Obama disperse his profound “wisdom” during the inauguration speech, something else came to my mind.
In 1976 Kurt Vonnegut published a gloomy novel titled “Slapstick, or Lonesome No More!” It was narrated as a memoir of Dr. Wilbur Daffodil-11 Swain, the last President of the USA, who lives on the first floor of the ruins of Empire State Building. He presided over the decline and disintegration of his country.
United States’ archrival – China – is prospering at the time. Chinese have solved their overpopulation problem by gradually reducing the size of their people. Eventually, they become so tiny that they could be inhaled by the regular-size people, which causes a new disease called “The Green Death”. Besides, China has tremendous achievements in science, one of which is control over gravity. The latter varies widely while Chinese experiment with it. Affecting bridges and buildings, the heavy gravity eventually causes the demise of what’s left of the US infrastructure.
The USA is divided into many countries and travel is dangerous. The King of Michigan is in a bitter military conflict with the Duke of Oklahoma and the Great Lakes pirates at the same time. At one point Dr. Swain has to travel to Michigan, because the King has made him an offer he can’t refuse – the President is expected to sell what was known as the “Louisiana Purchase” for one dollar.
The only remedy Dr. Swain could come up with is to create artificial families by adding a random flower middle name to the names of all Americans. Those who have the same middle name form a family.
I don’t think that at the time anybody viewed Vonnegut’s novel as anything more than a dark satire. Yet, here we are now, in 2013, watching the decline of the United States and the rise of China.
Obama’s inaugural speech could’ve been created by Dr. Swain. It was written to appeal to imaginary solutions while carefully trying to ignore the crumbling façade of the American greatness. Of course, Barry appeals to that past greatness, but he doesn’t propose a single viable solution to preserve it.
The monumental task of achieving full equality for all people as individuals before the law is replaced by inventing more and more rights for more and more “marginalized” groups, which get smaller and smaller, just like Vonnegut’s miniaturized Chinese. Here are the most important tasks as Obama (or those who wrote his speech) see them:
It is now our generation’s task to carry on what those pioneers began. For our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts. Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity; until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country.
With so many regulations, human rights commissions and controlling bureaucrats, I can’t see how an employer can get away with paying a woman a smaller wage for the same work. But since Obama says is it, it must be true.
And of course he doesn’t miss the homosexual marriage, an epically important issue for the nation, which affects less than 3% of the population. I understand that Obama is the first homosexual president of the USA as Newsweek called him (technically he should be considered bisexual if he has sex with Michelle). Perhaps that was the reason for picking the progressive Cuban “poet” Richard Blanco to read a poem at the inauguration. Blanco is a talentless hack who can’t form coherent sentences (yes, I’ve read his work) and his only qualification for that “honour” is that he has sex with other men.
The gay marriage is a great marginal issue, which the progressives and the militant homosexuals want to shove down the throats of all Americans in the name of fighting “bigotry”. It’s an initiative no better than Dr. Swain’s flower middle name initiative. In Obama’s world the imminent disaster, coming as a result of overspending, is a tiny bump and much less important than the “sacred right” of homosexual marriage.
And just as important is to welcome with open arms all the aliens, who sneaked into the country illegally, and give them full support with money snatched from the people who still pay taxes. It looks like the 47% is rapidly expanding…
But even more disturbing is Obama’s monumental vision on climate change caused by people:
We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms. The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But America cannot resist this transition; we must lead it. We cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries – we must claim its promise…
Talking of climate change, as I am writing this, it is snowing in Toronto. It is very cold outside and it has been cold for over a week. The “overwhelming judgment of science” somehow failed to explain how the world temperatures didn’t rise in long term. The remark about raging fires, drought and storms is a lie, statistically there is no increase.
Even the godfather of the global warming scam, Al Gore, sold his TV channel to the Arab oil-producing polluters. Apparently, Obama still hasn’t received the message.
I am not sure how he is going to tackle the global warming issue. Is he going to invade China, India, Russia and Brazil and destroy their industries? Because this looks like the only viable solution – even if all Americans move into caves and adopt the Amish lifestyle, that won’t change an iota in the “man- (and woman-) made climate change” unless all other countries are onboard. (And I won’t even go into the issue that mankind is too arrogant to think that its actions have such devastating consequences on the planet.)
Maybe things are simpler than that – maybe Obama is not really interested in global changes, but is just trying to expand the reach of the government and make all of us part of his green family.
Whatever his goals are, he, just like Dr. Wilbur Daffodil-11 Swain, is presiding over the decline of the USA. Maybe we will see him writing his memoirs in the ruins of the White House.
You were a prophet, Mr. Vonnegut – you got everything right, except the name of the President. Barrack Hussein Pansy-2013 Obama is here for four more years…

A few days ago Barack Obama was re-elected. I admit that this event caught me by surprise – I thought that it was impossible for a President with such poor record to win again. Under him the national debt skyrocketed, the unemployment rate went up, and the number of the people dependent on the government for their income increased as well.
Now the pundits are scrambling to find answers. Some think that Romney wasn’t sufficiently aggressive in his campaign, others blame everything on his inability to “connect” with the Hispanics, or on the hurricane Sandy, which shortened the campaign and let Obama shine, or the “betrayal” of Chris Christie, or the viciousness of Obama’s campaign. I don’t know, maybe each of these things contributed in its own way to Romney’s defeat.
However, what really mattered was the scary shift in the psyche of the Americans. We failed to notice that the common belief in one’s own power to deal with the world’s adversities had slipped away from the minds of tens of millions. The idea that somebody else should be responsible for your education, job opportunities and general wellbeing, is already firmly entrenched in the heads of those people.
The enormous number of those who claim benefits for fake disability is just one of the signs of the degeneration of the spirit of self-reliance. A nation, which descends into the stupor of mass stupidity doesn’t want self-reliance. When traditional values are mocked or considered of the same importance as the values of the Polynesian cannibals or the Muslim sharia barbarism, it is not surprising that Honey Boo Boo, the real housewives from whatever state or the worthless Kardashians become the arbiters of the tastes supreme masters of the masses’ thinking.
It’s no wonder that Barack Obama captured the imagination of those ignorant people. He is one of them and he spoke their language. A closet homosexual (who is ashamed of that), he was a product of a dysfunctional family consisting of a Kenyan alcoholic Marxist and a lefty mom, who successfully whored on three continents. His surviving family, especially his lazy auntie Zeytuni, who mooched money from the taxpayers, while being an illegal alien in the USA, and his alcoholic uncle, whose name I already forgot, are a perfect example of Barry’s social circle.
Barry Hussein fits perfectly in that circle. He never held a real job, he was a poor student, who got into college only because of the affirmative action designed to help losers like him. He was probably so embarrassed by his “achievements” that he sealed his academic records.
Romney’s appeal to reason and austerity sounded like a foreign language to the Obama electorate, they didn’t care that the country is just a few steps from the abyss of economic self-destruction. Obama found marginal issues that resonated much better with the marginal minds of his fans, like the homosexual marriage or the imaginary “war on women” exposed by his sidekick Sandra the Slut.
Obama cleverly realized that the economic problems are the farthest thing from the everyday interests of his followers. When you are used to get all kinds of goodies for doing nothing, you never think who is providing them. Barry’s fake statement that the economy was improving and the only obstacle to universal prosperity are the evil rich, who don’t pay their “fair share”, were enough to sooth the shallow minds of the welfare queens, ghetto gangstas, Mexican drug dealers and everybody else who lives out of the kindness of the government (in addition to the income from fraud and crime). I won’t even mention the foreign policy – the majority of those welfare losers know absolutely nothing about the events outside of their town. The assumption that Romney could extract some political dividends from Obama’s treachery in the Benghazi terrorist attack now seems laughable, because nobody in the Barry’s electorate cared about that.
And I don’t blame them for that attitude – as long as Barry Hussein can borrow or steal enough money to ensure the uninterrupted flow of free stuff, they’ll vote for him. It doesn’t matter at all that such a scheme is unsustainable.
The USA has long time ago reached the point where the taxes, no matter how high they are, won’t be able to support that crazy spending. Even if all the wealth of the rich is confiscated, it would be enough to drive the welfare machine for only a few months (with the unpleasant consequence that you could do this only once, the next year there’ll be nothing left to confiscate).
In 1957 Ayn Rand published her famous novel “Atlas Shrugged”, in which she envisioned a grim future, where the non-productive forces in the USA (“the moochers and the looters”) gradually gain control over the country and the whole economy collapses. At the time, Rand was ridiculed – that was not a surprise in the booming 1950’s when it seemed to everybody that only the sky was the limit of the growth.
Now only Obama’s voters are laughing – they still ignore the reality but they will soon feel the consequences of its immutable law: you may ignore reality, but eventually it bites you in the ass.
From that point of view it is probably better that Obama won. Under Romney as a president, we could expect some half-assed measures, which theoretically could’ve resolved the issues, but most likely they would’ve only prolonged the agony of the welfare state. Under Obama, the collapse is guaranteed – no matter how much he increases the taxes or tries to force us to rely on windmills, the spending can’s be sustained.
The collapse may force his dumb voters to wake up from their slumber and start to rely on themselves, but things are not that simple. I am sure that they’ll try to blame anybody but themselves for losing the flow of free goods. The armies of the parasites (like the Black Panthers, Muslim fanatics or any other armed group which would support Barry the Loser) may try to loot whatever little possessions the people who still work have. And it is very likely that we may see a full-blown civil war, the type that is already looming in Europe.
It looks like that would be the price to pay for our negligence and ignoring the basic principles our civilization was built upon. There is no guarantee that we would be able to restore the civilization, but we have no other choice other than walk through that Valley of the Shadow of Death and hope that at least a few of us would survive…

In an old episode of the Simpsons, Lisa Simpson traveled to Washington, D.C., as a winner of a Springfield patriotic essay contest. Appalled by the corrupt politicians, she re-wrote her essay to begin with the words that Washington was built on a swamp and today it still remains a swamp.
Lisa’s wise observation is still valid. It’s painful to observe the gallery of politicians inhabiting that place – petty thieves, adulterers, idiots… you name it…
And it looks like things are only getting worse. The latest pair of Swamp Things to emerge from the murky waters were Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The affirmative action President found his perfect match in the corrupt, Muslim Brotherhood loving Mrs. Clinton. Together, they are very efficient in smearing the US Coat of Arms with their excrements. Unfortunately, their most important ally, the mainstream media, are missing from the picture.
Their latest shitting exercise was related to the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11 this year, when the US Ambassador and three other Americans were killed. I am saying “terrorist attack” but that’s not what we were told for weeks after the event.
Barry and his people tried to convince us that the whole “incident” was a spontaneous reaction of ordinary Muslims to a movie posted on YouTube, which allegedly offended the Muslim “prophet”. Both the President and Hillary, as well as their entourage (including the US Ambassador to the UN), kept yelling that Christopher Stevens died because of a “disgusting” movie, which hurt the feelings of the Muslims around the world.
It was not hard to pull off that deception – everybody who has followed the world events knows that Muslims react like psychopaths to any perceived “insult”. They immediately start killing people and blowing up buildings. That was the case with the Danish cartoons.
The intellectuals copied Barry and Hillary’s outrage and emphasized the poor quality of the movie. It sounded like they would’ve supported the producer, if the movie wasn’t that bad. That simply revealed their cowardice. The same people fiercely defended the talentless whores from Pussy Riot, whose performance in the church was not much better than the Mohammad movie. The reason is very simple – unlike the Muslims, who would cut off your head when offended, the Orthodox Christians are totally harmless, so you can freely abuse them.
I watched the movie – it covered the facts about the fake prophet correctly. It was poorly made, but I thought that was not a crime. Otherwise Ed Wood could’ve been executed for making Plan 9 from Outer Space and Mariah Carey might’ve spent years in jail for Glitter.
Besides, the movie was never released officially other than being on YouTube. I understand that the followers of the homicidal Muslim cult are ready to start killing at every opportunity, but most of them are not movie buffs dedicated enough to their passion to scout the Internet for obscure movies, neither do most of them, who live in those God-forsaken parts of the world, have the computer equipment to indulge in their movie obsession.
However, the Obama administration kept lying for weeks. They even tried to derive a side benefit from the situation by calling for limitations of freedom of speech and arresting the maker of the movie. He was arrested and is still kept in jail without trial.
The truth came out gradually – despite the best attempts of the media to hide it. It turned out it was a well-premeditated attack, which took place late at night and there were not many people involved. Until then I thought the whole thing was a result of a mass demonstration of hundreds of weird guys (like the one we saw in Toronto) who spontaneously decided to kill a few Americans.
That was all false – the only network, which dared publish the truth was Fox News. They revealed the e-mail exchange, which gives us an idea about the situation.
There were three e-mails revealed. Here is Number One:
Subject:U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack (SBU).
The Regional Security Officer reports the diplomatic mission is under attack. Embassy Tripoli reports approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM personnel are in the compound safe haven. The 17th of February militia is providing security support.
The operations Center will provide updates as available.
Subject: Update 1: U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi (SBU)
(SBU) Embassy Tripoli reports the firing at the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi has stopped and the compound has been cleared. A response team is on site attempting to locate COM personnel.
Third and last:
Subject: Update 2: Ansar Al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack (SBU)
(SBU) Embassy Tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli.
“The e-mails are time and date stamped respectively at “4:05 PM” “4:54 PM” and “6:07 PM” on September 11, 2012, all Washington time.”
The significant revelation we have here is that the Obama administration received right away the notice that this was a terrorist attack, yet for fourteen days after that the Swamp Things tried to convince us that this attack was caused by an Internet video.
The first thing that makes you yell “WTF” is the fact that the US Ambassador was “protected” by the “17th of February Militia” which is an extremist Islamic group. One may wonder why they were the guards. Did Obama try to get rid of Stevens? Or did Stevens do some work for that militia, which was not liked by the other extremists?
Things get to look even worse when we dig below the general information the e-mails give us. According to the detailed timetable of the events, the tragedy took hours to unravel. Just like a military action movie, it involved a few heroes in the field and many more idiots in Washington, who were either too incompetent or too evil to act, but unlike a Hollywood movie the heroes didn’t make it.
Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they were again told to “stand down.”
Woods and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The rescue team from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.
At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Spectre gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights.
I have to add that while those dramatic events were unfolding, there were two US surveillance drones flying over the area, which provided live footage, which could be seen in the Pentagon and the White House.
It would be crazy to deny the terrorist attack and blame it on a mediocre movie, but that’s exactly what Barry and Hillary did. Later on they mobilized even Ambassador Stevens’ father, who like a fateful foot soldier of the Party, complained that his son’s death had been politicized. With all due respect to his loss, I should say that the issue is much bigger than his son – that wasn’t a robbery, but a direct assault on the US Government.
In a few days Hillary Clinton took full responsibility, but in a very unusual way – she neither explained why that happened, nor offered her resignation.
The administration and the media were so arrogant that they even attacked Romney for criticizing Obama’s handling the Libya issue.
Romney’s missteps in criticizing Obama’s handling of a deadly September attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi – the focus of a vividly testy exchange in the previous debate – have complicated his broader strategy of trying to cast the president as a weak steward of American power abroad.
Although the actions (or the lack thereof), which contributed to the killing of several Americans were bad enough, even more horrifying was the issue with the cover up. During the Watergate scandal, Nixon was not attacked just for apparently approving a break-in – the major issue was that he tried to lie about it. Obama is in a similar situation. The famous question: “What did the President know?” asked during the Nixon’s scandal, remained unanswered.
The same question applies to Obama and it is still not answered – the media are helping him by keeping silent. Other than Fox News and the Internet, very few media outlets show any interest in covering the scandal. The most urgent news about Obama on Yahoo today was some concern he has with his older daughter (I don’t know what it is and don’t care).
The tragedy of the situation comes from the fact that nobody cares about a lying President. It never occurs to most people that if Obama lies blatantly about that event, he has character flaws that make him unfit for his position.
And you can say the same about the media. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein are dead… Not literally, but as a paradigm – not many would risk their lives to expose injustice. Nowadays most journalists are cowards, who would cover up anything that may disturb their comfort. They aren’t even endangered in any way, but the conformism of those who work in the media creates an iron pact of silence, which keeps the public from learning the truth.
And for the large part, the public is also indifferent, which helps the media. Of course, the Internet provides a few brave people, but when the majority of the public still gets their thinking points from TV and the papers, it is unrealistic to think that Andrew Breitbart’s spirit could outwrestle Honey Boo Boo. The media reflect the public’s descent into deprivation – when you have millions living on welfare and snubbing the traditional values in exchange for free cash, can you expect courageous and alert journalists?
Under normal circumstances Obama would’ve been impeached, but the USA are not normal anymore. His race will protect him – because he is black, he was able to climb the political ladder without showing any abilities. Nobody would dare start an impeachment process, since they immediately would be called racists, even though (regardless of his skin colour) Barry is a traitor and a liar.
And, like in a vicious circle, an environment like that provides the perfect conditions for mediocre and lazy politicians like Obama to thrive.

I hope you remember Sandra Fluke… She was that “elderly” law student, who demanded that her Catholic university pay her over $3,000 per year to cover her contraceptives. She got her 15 minutes of fame after Rush Limbaugh rightfully called her “slut”. The outraged leftards and Marxists tried to destroy financially Rush by pressuring the advertisers to boycott his show (boy, aint’t those lefties really tolerant!).
Now the troubled Obama campaign tried to resurrect Fluke and show that she wasn’t just some media fluke, but a personality that could still be used.
She introduced him at a rally in Colorado, during which he made the point to scare women about the dangers of a Romney presidency. That was very appropriate – Sandra is the ultimate American slut, the face of the new socially-engineered America. She must do A LOT of screwing to spend $3,000 on contraceptives.
On the other hand, Obama is America’s ultimate political whore, who would do or say anything to get a few more votes. Recently he was peddling the idea that the newlyweds, instead of getting gifts, had to send that money to his campaign. He even promoted pathetic lotteries that in exchange of $3 would give you the chance to meet Barry and his greedy family.
Maybe Sandra reminds him of Mama Obama, a progressive sexually liberated woman, who never found a third-world loser she didn’t like (and she never used contraceptives).
It’s actually very sad – if the American women go for that scam, their country is doomed. It is hard to believe that a narcissistic slut like Fluke is presented as a beacon of morality and liberation.
Obama has stooped to a new low (but I am sure he will find a way to outdo himself in the remaining months before the election).

Barack Obama is gradually turning into one of the worst American presidents. It is sad to watch his almost masochistic pleasure of apologizing to every imaginable authority. Thanks to him the USA becomes a laughing stock among dictators and fanatical savages.
The woman in the video below is smarter and more courageous than him.
Too bad she is not the President of the United States of America:
In the next leg of his Asian tour, Barack Hussein Obama reached his old playground where he lived for years as a child, where he learned how to worship Islam and spread it all over the world (starting from America).
However, something unexpected happened that involved his feminist fat-fighting wife Michelle.
Indonesia’s Information Minister Tifatul Sembiring, a self-proclaimed Muslim fanatic, vowed not to shake Michelle’s hand, because despite being one of the most influential women in the world, in his world she is just a low-life kafir female.
A devout Muslim should touch only his wives, who are a little bit better than a despicable foreigner.
Although he was determined to ignore her, the videos of the reception show that he was forced to touch her hand. His comment was that she forced the touch on him. He was raped!
That’s another despicable and whining Muslim who officially states that he is treating women like garbage and nobody objects.
What if Putin refuses to shake her hand? He will be branded a boorish tyrant.
And the Indonesian Muslim savage can get away with it, because that is his “distinctive and sophisticated” culture. Actually, he is getting away with it, because if you criticize him, his country will blow you up.
I am not a fan of Michelle Obama, she is too much of a lefty for me. But despite that, she is a lady and she deserves respect. Shaking her hand is the least a decent man can do to show a respect for a lady.
What am I talking about??? Many Muslims can be “decent” only when they beat a woman in a “delicate” way that doesn’t leave scars on the face.
Doesn’t it make you feel like puking if the USA’s First Lady is treated like that? Can you imagine the ordeal the ordinary Indonesian Christians are going through?
When the dhimmi US president Barack Obama went to visit India, he didn’t anticipate any problems. He had all the right words, he had the politically correct opinion about jihad, but there was something he didn’t realize in advance.
Before his arrival, there were quite a few security forces arriving to ensure his safety.
One of those was Khan the Dog. His arrival caused a total uproar among the Muslims in India.
Did he have rabies? Did he bite some of the curry-stinking imams?
No, his did nothing like that. He is a well-behaved working dog. He is not a neurotic Chihuahua or a snotty Poodle.
The entire problem was in his name. The Muslims were furious, because he was called Khan. According to those ignorant Indian Muslims, that was a Muslim name. One of those weirdos said: “In Islam pigs and dogs are abhorrent and giving a dog a Muslim name is the ultimate insult. We are holding a meeting in Malegaon where we would raise this issue. We will give calls to our people through Masjids to protest against this. Muslims will not tolerate such an insult.”
If they had a little bit of intelligence, they would have known that the name Khan has existed long before their petty Arab warlord started their religion.
Since Khan is a working dog, who has earned his living by sniffing explosives planted mostly Muslim fanatics, he has questions of his own.
I asked those questions to my Muslim friends in Toronto, but they laughed me out, because all of them are too busy working to condemn a dog.
So, here are the questions addressed to the Asian Muslims:
Why don’t you work? Is it so difficult?
If you found some time to contribute to the world civilization, wouldn’t you find less irritation in a decent dog’s name?
When are you going to stop raping, shooting and burning alive Christians and Hindus?
Is whining a Muslim’s favourite pastime?
Would you be happier if the dog is called Obama?
Don’t you feel like idiots when you are the only ones who complain about a dog’s name?!
Of course, nobody would dare tell you how ridiculous you are, because you will probably blow him up, burn him, stab him, cut off his hands and feet, behead him, or apply any other of your rich arsenal of things that make people numb and scared.
During his current visit to India the US President Barack Obama had a meeting with the students of Mumbai’s St. Xavier College. At the meeting somebody asked him of his opinion about jihad.
True to his weaselly nature, he didn’t give a straight answer, but stated that “the phrase jihad has a lot of meanings within Islam and is subject to a lot of different interpretations”.
The reports go on to note that in his answer he very carefully avoided to say that he was against jihad.
He said that certain forces have distorted the meaning of jihad. And that was stated in the city, which experienced the worst Muslim terrorist attack in recent years, in which Pakistani Muslim slaughtered over 160 people, many of them foreigners.
Of course, that was more than welcomed by the Muslims in India, who rushed to confirm that jihad is just a struggle against injustice and (supposedly) doesn’t involve “killing the innocent”. However, it’s worth noting that “innocent” in their world has a very different meaning than in the West. Many Muslim clerics think that none of the Jews in Israel, regardless of age, are innocent and can be targeted any time.
The reports don’t say what the Indians thought about Obama’s jihad remarks…
He cowardly refused to confront the jihadi violence. But maybe his behaviour wasn’t cowardly, maybe he really meant it that jihad was good.
Probably that is his goal – when he is booted out from office in 2012, with his pro-Islamic views he will be the perfect candidate to lead numerous international organizations dominated by Muslims.
A Jimmy Carter with a turban…
