I concluded “Raping the Swedish Corpse” on November 13th with this observation:
President Barack Obama has made a statement of consolation that sounds more like a sympathetic, almost congratulatory message to ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other Islamic terror groups. He sounded almost regretful that the destruction in Paris wasn’t wider and the casualties higher. That’s worth another column.
And here it is.
Obama could just as well have asked for a Garrison Keillor voice-over to deliver the condolences in Keillor’s trademark Minnesotan funereal voice. His manner was listless, insipid, almost as though he had just been awakened from a sound sleep, but still had to rouse himself to make the formulaic sounds of transparently insouciant grief. He stumbled hesitantly over the pronunciation of liberté, égalité, and fraternité, and often seemed to pause as though he had lost his place on the document he was reading from. But, style aside, let’s take a look at what he said.
Good evening, everybody. I just want to make a few brief comments about the attacks across Paris tonight. Once again, we’ve seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians. This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share.
Paris was attacked by whom? And which values are “universal”? Those values can't be so “universal” that the attackers also shared them.
We stand prepared and ready to provide whatever assistance that the government and the people of France need to respond. France is our oldest ally. The French people have stood shoulder to shoulder with the United States time and again. And we want to be very clear that we stand together with them in the fight against terrorism and extremism.
Whose “terrorism” and whose “extremism”? Has Obama’s fight against Islamic terrorism had any effect on ISIS or Al-Qaeda? To put it bluntly, Obama’s foreign policy overall resembles the plot from Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space, with Hillary Clinton in the role of the Vampire Girl.
Paris itself represents the timeless values of human progress. Those who think that they can terrorize the people of France or the values that they stand for are wrong. The American people draw strength from the French people’s commitment to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. We are reminded in this time of tragedy that the bonds of liberté and égalité and fraternité are not only values that the French people care so deeply about, but they are values that we share. And those values are going to endure far beyond any act of terrorism or the hateful vision of those who perpetrated the crimes this evening. We’re going to do whatever it takes to work with the French people and with nations around the world to bring these terrorists to justice, and to go after any terrorist networks that go after our people.
How about bringing all of ISIS to justice? Al-Qaeda? The Muslim Brotherhood? CAIR? Justice meaning the extermination of all the vermin and a repudiation of every facet of Islam? But, no, that would mean we would need to declare war on Islam, even though Islam has declared war on the West and has been warring against the West for centuries. What happened in Paris was just another episode in that war. But…but… “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” Even if it takes the form of a scholarly critique of his character and deeds, or even questions his existence? Apparently not. Critiques of Islam are as heinous in Obama’s eyes as are “climate change” deniers. However, if people keep thinking of Islamic terrorism in terms of committed crimes that must be “punished,” ISIS will win the war and we will lose. Obama isn’t going to try to break that mental habit.
We don’t yet know all the details of what has happened. We have been in contact with French officials to communicate our deepest condolences to the families of those who have been killed, to offer our prayers and thoughts to those who have been wounded. We have offered our full support to them. The situation is still unfolding….
Yes, for a moment there we thought the Amish might be behind the carnage, but we're not sure what’s going on. We’ll have to wait for the situation to unfold. I was informed by a French TV news reporter that the people in the Bataclan concert hall heard one of the gunmen yell, “My wife’s borscht and potato dumplings are the greatest!” but that’s unconfirmed. Obama will believe anything as long as it fits his Marxist perception of the world.
So, there we have Obama standing there pretending not to know who was behind the killing, pretending to not even suspect, offering not a squeak of culpability and responsibility for what he is saying – and not saying. He simply refuses to “bad mouth” his “brothers” in ideology. Obama has a big soft spot for totalitarians and despots. He’ll bow and scrape to every bed sheet sheik and tin pot tyrant, not because he likes it, but because he knows that the craven gesture will humiliate and weaken the U.S.
I’m sure that in the days ahead we’ll learn more about exactly what happened, and my teams will make sure that we are in communication with the press to provide you accurate information. I don’t want to speculate at this point in terms of who was responsible for this. It appears that there may still be live activity and dangers that are taking place as we speak. And so until we know from French officials that the situation is under control, and we have for more information about it, I don’t want to speculate.
Yes, Obama will learn exactly what happened in Paris, but he’ll shift the blame to the prevalence of “Islamophobia” or to those who “jump to conclusions” and who wish to poison Islam’s good name. So, he doesn’t want to speculate on who or what is responsible.
Barack Obama – master of crocodile tears. He probably secretly reveled that so many “white privileged” French kids and Brits and Americans were massacred. Excuse me for being so callow and judgmental, but what do you expect me to be when discussing a man who declared war on this country from his first day in office? A man who has made his racism so evident and tangible?
Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch on FrontPage had some choice and very judgmental words for Obama and his condolences spiel in connection with Paris.
Meanwhile, Barack Obama was true to form, not mentioning Islam or Muslims in his statement on the Paris attacks, and not giving a hint that it was his precipitous and politically motivated withdrawal from Iraq that created the vacuum that allowed for the rise of the Islamic State. Indeed, the Islamic State could end up being the most significant legacy of the Obama Administration. Obviously American troops couldn’t have stayed in Iraq forever, and the Iraq project from its beginnings was based on false assumptions about Islam, ignoring its political, supremacist and violent aspects; but Obama’s hasty and ill-thought out withdrawal took into account none of the realities on the ground: the Sunni/Shi’ite divide, the Iranian influence in Baghdad, the Sunnis’ unwillingness to participate in the Baghdad government and the Shi’ites’ refusal to allow them to do so in any significant way, and more. France today is paying the price for the willful ignorance and short-sightedness of Obama and his administration.
Obama also paved the way for Libya to act as the launching base for tens of thousands of “immigrants” to cross the Mediterranean for Europe, in a literal Islamic Hijra invasion, many “asylum seekers” to drown in capsized boats, others to be murdered by Muslims if they were Christians. In 2011 Obama, without Congressional leave, declared war on Muammar Gaddafi and Libya, succeeding in helping to overthrow the tyrant, but clearing the way for Islamic supremacists to take over the country. This also led to Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi debacle. Libya and Turkey have since acted as departure points for thousands of ISIS agents to infiltrate Europe with mayhem and murder in mind. Obama applauds the invasion and is indifferent to the consequences. He has supplied ISIS with weapons with which to conaquer and terrorize Syria and Iraq with shipments to weapons intended for opponents of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, who desert the rebels and join ISIS.
Aside from waging war on the rest of the world, Obama has kept his original promise to wage war on his own country.
He campaigned for and got Obamacare passed. He dithered for eight years before finally vetoing the Keystone Pipeline, citing bogus “climate change” reasons. He approved of funding “green energy” companies that variably failed, costing taxpayers millions. He interfered in Canadian elections to defeat Steven Harper, the only anti-Islam leader in the West, hated by the left, and especially by Obama. Canada is now being run by Islam-friendly Justin Trudeau, an Obama clone. He helped to arm Mexican drug cartels with Attorney General Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” gun-running program, hoping to discredit the private ownership of guns by American citizens. He oversaw the harassment of reporters who did not report the “news” he wanted to hear. He refused to bolster border security, and campaigned for the Dream Act that would grant illegal aliens, who came here for the welfare state, legal status. He has reduced the effectiveness of the American military and jeopardizing American national security by proposing, advocating and getting cuts in the military budget.
He is for the “empty the prisons” program that will release – or is the correct term unleash? – thousands of career criminals on American citizens. This program has been a pet project of George Soros. Cliff Kincaid of AIM reported on November 4th:
We are witnessing a carefully orchestrated political and media campaign to pass the George Soros-backed Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2015 (S.2123) on the grounds that it is “bipartisan.” But critics are calling it a soft-on-crime bill that will backfire on the Republicans who help pass it…..
But while the Koch brothers did give $5 million to the Coalition for Public Safety, a group that met with former Attorney General Eric Holder to push “criminal justice reform,” it is the left-wing billionaire, George Soros, who has really been behind the campaign. He gave the ACLU $50 million in 2014 “to end mass incarceration.”
We noted in a previous article that one Soros-funded group, Critical Resistance, was founded by communist Angela Davis and says it seeks “to end the prison industrial complex” by “challenging the belief that caging and controlling people makes us safe.” We thought the group had only received $100,000 from Soros. It turns out the organization got $200,000 from the Soros-funded Open Society Foundations in the year 2000, $200,000 in 2002, and another $100,000 in 2009.
Sara Horowitz of the Washington Post reported on October 6th:
The Justice Department is set to release about 6,000 inmates early from prison — the largest one-time release of federal prisoners — in an effort to reduce overcrowding and provide relief to drug offenders who received harsh sentences over the past three decades, according to U.S. officials.
The inmates from federal prisons nationwide will be set free by the department’s Bureau of Prisons between Oct. 30 and Nov. 2. About two-thirds of them will go to halfway houses and home confinement before being put on supervised release. About one-third are foreign citizens who will be quickly deported, officials said.
Don’t be too sure that the alien offenders will be “quickly deported.” They’ll have attorneys and they’ll all find ways to game our broken-down, Ted Kennedy-sire immigration system.
Finally – and this certainly doesn’t begin to complete the list of Obama’s depredations committed against the U.S. – Obama wants to bring in 10,000 or more Syrian “refugees,” some of whom have already been brought in through New Orleans. He will do this with full knowledge that among those “refugees” will be ISIS agents whose mission will be to terrorize U.S. citizens and perhaps pull off a Paris-scale jihad attack. On November 13th, Judicial Watch reported:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has nearly 1,000 active probes involving the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) inside the United States, dozens of law enforcement officials disclose in a letter to President Obama.
The big question is what will the government do with the remaining captives, indisputably the world’s most dangerous terrorists? Just a few weeks ago Obama’s Defense Secretary said that around half of the remaining 112 prisoners at Gitmo must be locked up “indefinitely.” They include 9/11 masterminds Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), Ramzi Binalshibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali and Mustafa Ahmed Adam al Hawsawi as well as Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the Al-Qaeda terrorist charged with orchestrating the 2000 attack on the Navy destroyer USS Cole.
Those Syrian “refugees”? They’re already being brought in. The first batch of mostly males between 18 and 30 years old, are now being processed in New Orleans. Fox New Orleans reported on November 14th:
The flood of refugees migrating from the terror in Syria and Afghanistan has begun to have a trickle effect in the New Orleans area. "We had served two families, we're expecting one more soon, and we do not know how many more, but we expect more," said Martin Gutierrez of Catholic Charities, which is part of the Archidiocese of New Orleans. Catholic Charities has targeted services for helping refugees. "So it's a matter of uniting the families, which is something that the church really promotes, obviously. Some of them don't have relatives and we try to help them become integral parts of our communities," Gutierrez said.
But most of the new “refugees” are healthy-looking males between 18 and 30 years old.
Everything Obama has ever done in the White House – legally, illegally, criminally, in defiance of Americans and in defiance of his oath of office – with the assistance of Democrats and Republicans alike, has fit into his agenda to fundamentally “transform” this country from a semi-free country into authoritarian slave state, and “transform” it racially, economically, and politically.
What drives him is an unprecedented malice for this country.
