The highest viewed post (a whopping 96 views) on the Tank is a retort to accusations toward Barack Obama and his supposedly questionable religious past.
After nearly five months, the vitriol continues. I shouldn’t be surprised, but it leaves me quite despondent.
‘Terrorists fist jab’
Fox News’ E.D. Hill said the hand gesture exchanged between Barack and wife, Michelle, last week was, “A fist bump? A pound? A terrorist fist jab?”
Hill said Tuesday, “I didn’t want to associate the word ‘terrorist’ in any way with Senator Obama and his wife.”
If you didn’t want to associate it, don’t SAY it.
Noxious number: He is Muslim
The percentage of Americans that believe Obama is a Muslim, said a poll cited by The Economist.
An e-mail forward circulating about Obama’s Kenyan heritage wants to increase that 10 percent.
The first sentence says, “How come we haven’t seen or know about some of these [pictures]?”
Bring on the startling revelations. …
“Barack has stated his support for Raila Odinga, opposition leader in Kenya who signed a ‘Sharia pact’ with Muslims and claims to be Obama’s cousin. He is married to Ida Oginga. They have four children — two sons and and two daughters. His oldest son, Fidel, is named after Fidel Castro.”
Granted: Sharia, strict Islamic law with few human rights, should not be accepted.
(Barack is also supposedly distant cousins with Vice President Dick Cheney. Gasp! And a kid is named after Fidel Castro? Please help!)
“Barack’s father, Muslim, hard-drinker, was married three times, attended Harvard and returned to Kenya. Obama claims he was an atheist, but he was raised a Muslim and was given a Muslim burial at Barack’s family’s request.”
Whether you’re praising Mohammed, nothing, many wives or the bottle, who cares if you are able to lead your life how you choose?
“Abandoned by his father and shipped off by his mother to his white grandparents, Barry Sotero becomes Barack Hussein Obama. Obama would describe his grandparents as ‘white folk.’ (Yeah, ‘white folk’ that would NOT abandon you, their grandchild. Shame on you Obama.)”
A google search of “Barry Sotero” returned crack-pot sites without any legitimacy.
(Yeah of course, white people NEVER leave their kids. They are perfect parents.)
“Obama’s visit to Africa in 2006. Where are the transcripts of the speeches he gave here? Campaigning for Odinga? Wouldn’t it be great to able to read these? Do the people of Illinois know about Obama’s radical background?”
Just because he is part Kenyan does not make him a Muslim — not that there is anything wrong with that –or a terrorist.
(If only we got our hands on the missing transcripts that reveal that Obama is a covert Al Qaeda operative.)
Retorting these claims was huge waste of my time. Can I have my hour back?
