Man of the Cloth

obama, obama jokes, islam, ramadan, conservative, hope n' change, hope and change, stilton jarlsberg, michelle, fabric

Barack Hussein Obama recently took time off from impeding Israel's efforts to defend itself and not giving a flying fornication about the anti-Christian slaughter in Iraq in order to do what he does best and most enthusiastically: praise Islam.

In official comments for the celebration of the Eid-al-Fitr feast which comes at the end of Ramadan's month-long period of fasting, the president praised Muslim-Americans for their many "achievements and contributions...to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy."

Sadly, very few people care enough about history anymore to acknowledge the great contributions of our nation's Muslim founding fathers, including Thomas Mohammed Jefferson,  Alexander Hussein Hamilton, and John Allah Akbar Adams. And speaking of the "fabric of our nation," fewer still know or care that the Declaration of Independence is written on the back of a prayer rug.  And don't bother checking it on Snopes - we already did, and it's true.

The president is also correct in his assertion that Muslim-Americans strengthen the core of our democracy - or at least the core of Obama's Democrat voting bloc.  According to a recent study, Obama enjoys greater support from Muslims than any other religious group in America - perhaps because he voices greater support for Muslims than any other religious group in America.

Seriously, have you ever heard the president praise Christianity for its role in putting a man on the moon? Have you heard him say that one of the "sweetest sounds on Earth" is the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Can he even spell Presbyterian? We think not.

But in the spirit of Eid-al-Fitr, let us not bicker about religious differences but instead celebrate the strong fabric of America.

A strong fabric which, above all else, we'd like to see made into a straightjacket for Barack Hussein Obama as soon as possible.

I had a dream last night in which lamont insane obama was celebrating the sweetest sound he ever heard, him and magilla eating the traditional meal to honor his favorite religion... RAMADAN NOODLES!
BTW, I've never seen magilla look so "fetching" as while wearing her Mooselim Dior designer trash-bag! (Also, "fetching" as when you throw something for any OTHER dog to retrieve!)

Amazing how versatile this master faker is. Claims to be Irish on St Patty's day, yet marks the Muslim holidays as well. I wonder how those pics of him sippng Guinness went over at the local Mosque.

How fitting that the greatest contribution of the Arab/Muslim world is the zero. Now we are stuck with him as our alleged president.

If the Allah Praiser-in-Chief is referring to the arab slave-traders, whose slaves populated the New World, he might have a point.

How can anyone doubt what the "dic's" true religion is. It is self evident. Actions speak louder than words. PS: It's spouse never looked better.

@Stilton,
You left out Achmed Quincy Adams.

@Judi King,
O'Liar definitely leans Muslim, but the only "god" he worships is himself.

Chris said...

Yeah, Obozo's "fabric" statement/claim is made up out of whole cloth alright.

Muslims did so have something to do with the early strength of this country! What religion do you think the targets were on the shores of Tripoli when the Marines got their first big job?

Jim Hlavac said...

Well, Muslims can take control.
And fly airplanes very well.
Though, their landing skills have much to be desired.

I'd like for all non union carpenters to know that upon the fall of the 4th Reich, there will be much work available building gallows from coast to coast,

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Readers- As a point of clarification, today's cartoon isn't about Muslim bashing (although they have a lot to answer for) so much as Barry's hyperbolic praise for the faith that gave us the "zero" and the "ground zero."

And it doesn't help that, although Barry claims to be a Christian, he attended Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years and came away with nothing other than the belief that the Bible is a story about chickens coming home to roost.

Geoff King said...

Not counting Hussein himself, the US did not get it's first Muslim-American congressman until 2007. That does not speak loudly for "many achievements and contributions". As for " building the fabric of our nation", the aforementioned Arab slave traders did indeed supply us with plenty of manual laborers. Also, Ă˜bama's buddies that gave us 9/11 have most certainly aided in the building of the fabric of our current Stasi Police State.

John the Econ said...

IMHO, Obama doesn't have a religion. If he did, it certainly wouldn't be Christianity, which he only superficially embraced because he was told by his handlers that it was a necessary political move to integrate with the political establishment on the south side of Chicago.

Remember, true Marxism has no room for for religion.

If Obama seems to embrace Islam, it's only for the same reasons he embraced Christianity 25 years ago; to gain the power and trust of another group he wishes to influence and politically exploit.

Now, compare that to his brother, who makes little effort to hide what his agenda is.

Meanwhile, I see that we're still sending Hamas millions of dollars of aid as they continue to launch rockets into Israel.

Geoff King said...

Women, under Sharia law, are probably the most abused people in human history. Besides the allowed beatings, sexual mutilation, and common deaths by stoning for relatively minor transgressions, they also have no rights to their own children and very few other rights whatsoever. They do not even often get the luxury of being their husband's only wife.
With that in mind, where is all the feminist outrage when our president publicly praises that religion?

Judi King said...

The targets on the shores of Tripoli were Barbary pirates who were capturing ships and selling the captures as slaves. Jefferson refused to pay to these pirates, hence the "war". (The pirates just happened to be muslims).

Allah of Dystopia said...

Barry and history? Schmistory!

It's all about him. He's the greatest, evah! His voters won't fact check him. Anyway, they all want Israel destroyed. The anti-Semitism, anit-Christian of this administration, who constantly roars about "racial animus" is breath-taking. Cough ...

Rosie Palms-Durbin said...

OK - yeah. The very fabric. The guy is brilliant. But then the Dems are in general. Nancy Pelosi is declaring that the flood of illegals need representation before they deported. OK.

And then there is this Dem expert, flapping her lips, and confusing that with a fart.

OK.

KyudoNV said...

Let's not forget how ISIS selebrated Eid-al-Fitr!

They had a jolly good time slaughtering hundreds of Shia Muslims.

PRY said...

I don't want to celebrate some Muslim tradition...but I would heartily celebrate Obama's exit from the planet!

You're correct, Stilt, Obama has always claimed he is a christian. But, after that first dumb interview at Saddleback church IN 2008 with Pastor Warren, it was obvious to every believer that he was not...no doubt whatsoever, and he has not shown us otherwise!

The word of God tells us that whether you are a believer or otherwise, you will know a true believer by what he produces...and he has produced nothing but confusion.

Karnak said...

You know, in all fairness, I don't know about "the fabric of our nation" (which is clearly embedded in the classical liberal tradition of Europe, at least until the 20th century), but I am continually amazed by the contributions of the Arab world to Western Civilization in general, during the Medieval period when the Western world was coming out of the funk of the Dark Ages. The contribution is broad and significant.

And then, over the centuries of Islamic-induced decline, here is how Western Civilization and the Arab world interact today.

It has been noted by many authors that nations which are resource-rich tend to have declining cultures.

Judi King said...

All the "Arabs" did was perpetuate the inventions of others through the middle ages. They really didn't invent much on their own.

Geoff King said...

There is no question that Arabic culture contributed greatly to advancements in many human philosophies and endeavors. They evidently even invented the Bagpipe, and have the common decency and wisdom to not take credit for that obnoxious musical instrument. However, at least since the 15th Century, their contributions have pretty much been Zero (see what I did there). In their self-serving claim to be the chosen race they have forsaken advancement in favor of religious zeal. I believe that, had they not come into great wealth via the fossil fuels that lie under their otherwise useless lands, the entire Arabic/Muslim culture would have gone the way of the Dodo Bird.

Karnak said...

Judi - you are correct but it is clear that we (modern Western culture or archaically, the Occident) have a lot that has been influenced by so-called "Oriental Culture". But "invent" they did, though it may not seem like much (numerals, musical notations to some degree, they fostered much of science prior to the Age of Reason and the Rennaisance - algorithm is Arabic - and so on) but let's face it, there wasn't much going on back then by our standards anyway.

The point I was trying to make was they were a pivotal conduit from ancient to the modern Western culture and somehow that has all taken a wrong turn. I think in that regard, Geoff is correct.

I am simply amazed each time I read about that era. How could so great a people go so wrong? And then I look at us ....

Karnak said...

BTW Judi, I also agree that Wookie looks great in the good doctor's rendering.

Or at least, "better".

Tony, Orlando, and Don said...

Hey, forget all this.

I was just over at Drudge - Beyonce and Jay-Z are getting a divorce??????? OMG!

So maybe that WASN"T Michelle under that hijab? Maybe .... maybe... it's Jay-Z?

Judi King said...

Bagpipes? The Romans had bagpipes.

Geoff King said...

Sorry sis. If you Google the history of bagpipes, you will find the earliest record came from the Hittite Empire in the current Middle Eastern vicinity of Turkey. This reference occured around 1000 BC, long before the advent of the Roman Empire.

Hey, coward, quick question, what is one of the US's oldest and most loyal ally, and the first country to recognize the United States of America in 1777? If you guessed "The Muslim country of Morocco", guess what? You're absolutely correct, and have just identified one of the Muslim contributions to the founding of America.

Hopefully you'll be able to stomach this instead of just getting scared of new information again and deleting it.

I've had about "allah" this I can stand. What galaxy did this guy come here from?

Allah of Dystopia said...

Wow - they recognized us did they? Whooppeedeeeffingdoo. I bet it was like night and day when that happened. Where would we have been had that not happened, Anon #1? Uh ... same place.

I am shaking in my boots about THAT contribution.

Judi King said...

The Hittites may POSSIBLY have had a bagpipe before the Romans but 3000 years ago they can hardly be called Arabs and, as this was about the Arab contribution to Western civilization, this is a pretty big stretch. Yeah, Morocco may have recognized the new US but what does that have to do with a war with the muslim Barbary pirates?

Karmak said...

Judi - At that time, "oriental" (v. "occidental") would be a better description. I know I have used the word "Arab" as the current parlance is apt to do, as opposed to "Islamic". Semitical might also be a good word. I think Geoff was simply making a point about the peoples of that region. There are a lot of threads that go back through the millennia upon which Western Culture rests.

BTW, have you ever read Will and Ariel Durant's "The Story Of Civilization"? If not and if you have a LOT of time, you should. You sound like someone who would enjoy it.

Judi King said...

Yes, Western civilization has many building blocks. Thanks for the tip about that book, I'll look for it.

Froaderick Barbarossa said...

Ummmmmm.... This is soooooo racist.

OK, OK, I can't get my head out of yesterday. Whatever. I am a sick puppy. They don't call me "Red Beard" for nothing. Get over it.

Froaderick Barbarossa said...

Someone mentioned (hope it wasn't me - if so the alzheimer's is getting worse) the "Tyson's Corner" piece in NR the other day - here it is. Very good. Along with Kevin D. Williamson, Charles Cooke is becoming a big fave of mine. He's a transplanted Brit who seems to be more of an American than the vast majority of Americans. And he can point that out with some very thoughtful writing.

Alfred E. Newman said...

And in the spirit of Eid al-Fitr, whatever that is, I give you your cup of Morning Jew!

Mika (PBUH) is so cute but so stupid. Oh well, we all make mistakes, huh? Yeah - I'm worried.

And speaking of MSNBC, did y'all see Rand Paul's interview there recently? Rand Paul - oh yeah, babe.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Anonymous (the stupid one with OCD)- You're equating Morocco's recognition of the United States with the nation's founding (or, in Barry Soetoro's words, "building the very fabric" of our nation)?!

I once "recognized" actor Peter Weller at a coffee shop in Dallas, but that doesn't mean I can take credit for the creation of Robocop.

Again, I trounce your dweeby whining arguments with my mastery of logic. Huzzah!

David in SoCal said...

@Anonymous: AND I fart in your general direction!

Froaderick Barbarossa said...

Stilton -

Huzzah!

Aw yeah, babe.

Froaderick Barbarossa said...

David in SoCal -

For reneging on D-D's, "I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!"

"Silly English k-nnnnnigget!"

"No, now go away or I shall taunt you a second time-a!"

Anonymouseseses said...

Well this is certainly racist, islamophobic, sexist, and possibly homophobic, though I dare say I am stretching things a bit there - but too much coffee this morning.

Ha! Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is a blindingly stupid person!!!!!!!!!!! Oh wait, she just called Obama lazy, so maybe she is brilliant.

And for you lefties out there, she said this on your beloved propaganda machine, MSNBC.

Privileged SWM said...

It's come to this.

Dear moonbat,
I guess you really showed us, didn't you. Morocco? Really? Damn.... There HAD to be abundant "high fives" at Independence Hall that day. I can almost hear Jefferson saying, "Gentlemen. We have ARRIVED! A tiny nation of tent dwelling sheep "herders" from the 3rd century has recognized us as a COUNTRY! WHOOPEEE!!! Break out the ale, boys!"

Speaking of recognition, there are millions of us who fully recognize Obama as a lying, lazy, narcissicistic asswipe, but that certainly has no impact on his legitimacy as a world leader).

Oh, and isn't it kinda ironic that the moonbat accused Stilton of cowardice and posted as anonymous? Few use their real names here, but all it could come up with is "anonymous?"

@Stilton,
Huzzah, indeed! And speaking of Peter Weller, ever watch Longmire? I like it because I'm from Wyoming, and I've even gotten past the fact that the show is filmed in New Mexico and Longmire is played by an Aussie. And I see the Captcha is back. Dang....

Anonymous said...

Crap! I need to eat crow now. My computer is screwed up, so my post went in as "anonymous" instead of Colby. This has something to do with the Captcha thing; I'm logged in, but the "how to post" thing is not showing at the bottom.

Sterling's Magic Johnson said...

Thought I would try the CAPTCHA by reminding everyone about the power of Darwin (well, not the man, the theory ... oh you know).

There is the senseless slaughter in the Middle East (and I am referring to Shia'a v. Sunni, and both of them against everyone else, just to be clear) and then .... there is this. From Drudge (PBUH).

REM1875 said...

We need to remind the media that aethism is now the official state religion of the US and to true believers marxism and now obamaism are now state supported religions.

John "Jihad" Jay said...

Yup, forget the "Notorious R.B.G" - John "Jihad" Jay prepared the very foundation of the Republic. And to honor the good doctor's support of Eid al-Fitr (well, pigging out, as the Islamists say), we have this.

Lovely.

Froaderick Barbarossa said...

This has nothing to do with the subject but since I was accused of being a racist, I will offer the following "racist" video. The message is probably not new to the HnC crowd but what the heck. I enjoyed it - being a neanderthal.

Oh HELLS yes, Froaderick Barbarossa, that was quite lovely.

TheOldMan said...

The most important contribution Mooselimbs made to the USA was to the history of the Marine Corps. Ever wonder why this line is in the song: "...to the shores of Tripoli"? Read about the Barbary Pirates and what happened when the infant USA got tired of paying tributes to the Mooselimbs.
