'Don't Denigrate Islam' Says Obama After Calling Americans 'Bitter Clingers'
President Obama finally remarked upon the attacks on our consulate in Libya -- but was silent on the attack on our embassy in Egypt -- and stressed the importance of not disrespecting religion in his speech, something he's newly concerned about:
While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants.
It's interesting that only when Islamists riot is Obama concerned for religious respect. I assume that Islam is excluded from what is called his 'war on religion' as he's never before shown any concern for the denigration of other faiths. He's demonstrated none of what he asks these past several years. Who could forget his demeaning characterization of middle America as 'bitter clingers?'
Or his attack on Catholicism via the Obamacare mandate and the denial of religious exemptions and his continuing war on religion at home?
Suddenly he's concerned about "denigrating the religious beliefs of others?"
Not only is Obama warring against religion at home, but now with this statement, he's warring against free speech. Islamists don't have the right to not be offended. Obama is now condemning free expression and speech because, as our embassy noted, it "hurt feelings."
