Palin Loves America, Obama Doesn't

In his Cairo speech today, Obama spoke three times about the right of Muslim women to wear the "hijab," the head scarf. Of course, he never mentioned the right of Muslim women NOT to wear the head scarf. His Secretary of State, long an advocate of female rights, apparently has been told never to mention the subject (at least outside the US).

The key difference between Gov. Sarah Palin and Obama is that she loves her country, while Obama apparently doesn't. Palin's son, Track, is in Iraq fighting to bring freedom to a country with a history of mass murder carried out by adherents to Islam. From all evidence, Palin regards freedom as essential to a nation. Obama regards it as no big deal. Increasingly, the man is a menace to the very country he claims to represent.

Fresh from declaring (absurdly) the US "a Muslim country," Barack Hussein Obama spoke at length today in Cairo, Egypt. With that country having one of the most brutal dictatorships -- based on Islam -- in the world, he neglected to emphasize the need for freedom, human rights, and a movement toward democracy. Why should he emphasize such things when he doesn't believe in them for his own country, assuming he even regards the US as his country?

At one point, engaging in his increasingly tiresome Bush-bashing, Obama talked about how 9/11 has caused the US to "abandon some of its ideals." What he's condemning the US for is defending itself against some of the same Muslim fanatics who made up a significant part of his audience.

Frankly, our "ideals" do not include wearing a sign that says "Attention Terrorists, Please Kill Us."Obama's brand of diplomacy is one where the US lies whimpering in a corner. Apparently, we are supposed to express our regrets for defending ourselves against the Islamo-fascists whom Obama is afraid to identify, let alone condemn.

Every time the man cranks up his TelePrompter, our country faces greater dangers. He will not defend the US because he believes there is nothing worth defending. Obama's illusion is that if he apologizes constantly to Muslims that will somehow cause people who hate us will somehow like us.

He calls it "building bridges," but really its his version of a Bridge to Nowhere. Frankly, we shouldn't want authoritarian countries that scoff at basic human rights and who celebrate a religion based on intolerance to LIKE us. If they did, it would prove we were doing something terribly wrong.

Yes, only a minority of people in a country like Egypt (or Saudi Arabia) believe in freedom, democracy, and human rights. However, that's precisely the minority we should be reaching out to . .. and helping nurture. We should be doing everything in our power to defeat and marginalize the hundreds of millions of Muslims who are little more than barbarians.

I attacked Obama on both my blogs today because the man has no understanding (or at least claims to have no understanding) of the link between Islam, the Qu'ran, and violent Jihad. For God's sake, people, late in the 19th century (!!!!) the forces of the Ottoman Empire were besieging the walls of Vienna, Austrai, trying to forcibly convert Europe to the "joys" of Islam. From the 7th century A.D. onward Islam tired to intimidate, kill, and forcibly convert people.

Within the past few years, a Muslim man tried to convert to Christianity in Afghanistan. The "Islamic courts" there sentenced him to death, which is of course the standard practice (in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere) for dealing with someone who converts from Islam. Finally, the U.S. got Italy (!!!!) to accept the individual as a refugee. And that's our "ally," Afghanistan.

Does Obama know these things? Yeah, but he doesn't care. Why should he? After all, he "won the election."

Obama gave one slight nod today to the "rights of women." No one, not a single individual in the audience (which apparently was almost all male) applauded. These people are barbarians, and they are extremely dangerous. Yeah, Obama wanted to "build a bridge" . . . but it will turn out to be a Bridge to Nowhere.

While I've stated that Obama has merged his mother's Leftist ideology, the heretical beliefs of Rev. Wright, and Islam, I largely agree with Spengler's analysis.

Obama's women reveal his secret
By Spengler

"Cherchez la femme," advised Alexander Dumas in: "When you want to uncover an unspecified secret, look for the woman." In the case of Barack Obama, we have two: his late mother, the went-native anthropologist Ann Dunham, and his rancorous wife Michelle. Obama's women reveal his secret: he hates America.

We know less about Senator Obama than about any prospective president in American history. His uplifting rhetoric is empty, as Hillary Clinton helplessly protests. His career bears no trace of his own character, not an article for the Harvard Law Review he

edited, or a single piece of legislation. He appears to be an empty vessel filled with the wishful thinking of those around him. But there is a real Barack Obama. No man - least of all one abandoned in infancy by his father - can conceal the imprint of an impassioned mother, or the influence of a brilliant wife.

America is not the embodiment of hope, but the abandonment of one kind of hope in return for another. America is the spirit of creative destruction, selecting immigrants willing to turn their back on the tragedy of their own failing culture in return for a new start. Its creative success is so enormous that its global influence hastens the decline of other cultures. For those on the destruction side of the trade, America is a monster. Between half and nine-tenths of the world's 6,700 spoken languages will become extinct in the next century, and the anguish of dying peoples rises up in a global cry of despair. Some of those who listen to this cry become anthropologists, the curators of soon-to-be extinct cultures; anthropologists who really identify with their subjects marry them. Obama's mother, the University of Hawaii anthropologist Ann Dunham, did so twice.

Obama profiles Americans the way anthropologists interact with primitive peoples. He holds his own view in reserve and emphatically draws out the feelings of others; that is how friends and colleagues describe his modus operandi since his days at the Harvard Law Review, through his years as a community activist in Chicago, and in national politics. Anthropologists, though, proceed from resentment against the devouring culture of America and sympathy with the endangered cultures of the primitive world. Obama inverts the anthropological model: he applies the tools of cultural manipulation out of resentment against America. The probable next president of the United States is a mother's revenge against the America she despised.
