Did you happen to catch former New York City mayor, Rudy Giuliani's comments the other night when he said "I do not believe the President loves America."? When questioned about it later Mr. Giuliani refused to back down or apologize for his comments.
It's a pretty bold statement for a public figure to make. But is far off base? Let's look at some of the things the President has done recently that could lead one to believe what Mr. Giuliani said.
Mr. Obama, for some reason, believes it is his job to support and defend Islam from all who would slander or degrade it, and from those who speak the painful truth about it. I'm sure it has everything to do with his childhood and his Islamic education as a young, impressionable boy. It also has to do with his father and his exploration of who the man was.
The President has all but said that ISIS and other Muslim terrorists are justified in what they do because of violence committed against them in the past. He likened current Islamic terrorism to the Crusades, a twist that historically is completely inaccurate and misleading.
The President will not use the words "Islamic extremism," instead linking all violent extremists together as being the same - even though Islamic extremism is the most prevalent in all the world. He will not link Islamic terrorism to Allah, nor to Mohammed for that matter, completely ignoring the ties to the Islamic faith. Yet he calls out "Christian extremism," saying that during the Crusades "many atrocities were committed in the name of Christ." He conveniently failed to mention that the Crusades were in direct response to Islamic violence toward Christians and Jews throughout the Middle East. Of course - he would most likely say that the Muslims who committed those violent acts and conquered the Holy Land with violence were "not Islamic."
The President says Americans need to be more tolerant of Muslims even as Muslims are committing horrific crimes worldwide in the name of Allah, including here in the United States. The Boston Marathon bombing, various beheadings across the nation, the Fort Hood shootings (which were ridiculously labeled "workplace violence" by the Obama administration), the violent teachings of the Quran, and an ever-growing, vocal Muslim population here in the States that demands our free speech be curtailed in the name of their religion give Americans ample reason to distrust Islam and decry it as evil. Yet our own President tells us we must not talk bad about Islam and tells the world that "the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
President Obama refused to acknowledge that a kosher deli in Paris was attacked because the (now dead) patrons inside were Jewish. Instead he claimed the attack was "random." He refused to acknowledge that the 21 Egyptian Christians were killed because of their religious beliefs yet he was quick to note the Muslim beliefs of three students killed in North Carolina by a crazy man who, according to his neighbors, hated everyone equally.
So how difficult is it to realize where his loyalties lie? President Obama has never really denied allegations that he's a Muslim. His latest response was "...they’ve said I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing.”
You know what, Mr. President? It would be a bad thing. It would confirm that you're nothing but a liar and a would-be despot, trying to change the United States in the name of Islam. In my book that would make you a terrorist through subversion, which would amount to treason against the United States.
The President professes to be a Christian yet nearly everything he says and does belies that claim. I won't try to tell anyone what to believe. Each of you must make up your own mind about President Obama and the things he does. I would ask, however, before you defend him, look closely at his words and actions. He is not what he appears to be on the surface. How much you really want to know about him will dictate how deeply you will dig to find information.
I will leave you with this. During his 2008 campaign President Obama promised to "fundamentally transform America." He certainly seems to be doing that. From undying love and support of Islam, to completely uncontrolled borders, to forced government healthcare, to degrading and dismantling the strongest and best trained military in the world, to doubling the national debt, to raising the number of people dependent on government handouts for subsistence, to unilaterally granting amnesty to millions of illegals without changing border security, to appointing Muslim Brotherhood members to his administration - Obama has been very successful in fundamentally transforming America. And he's not finished.
All we can hope for is that the Republican controlled Houses in Washington will stop being cowards and stand up to Obama's treachery. They talked big during the election but have yet to back that talk up. And with Hillary Clinton poised to run for President, funded through the Clinton Foundation by may Middle Eastern countries, we could be facing even more treachery and despotism. In my mind, anyone who would vote for Hillary doesn't are about the country and her future.
So is Rudy Giuliani correct? I believe he is. But that's just me.
