Yes, I am pimping my own post at Newsreal. That’s just how I roll:
You see, it is not the fault of the barbarians who murdered 20 innocent people, beheading two of them. It’s the fault of some unknown hick pastor – because he burned a book. President Obama himself furthered this odious meme with his own statement:
“The brave men and women of the United Nations, including the Afghan staff, undertake their work in support of the Afghan people,” Obama said. “Their work is essential to building a stronger Afghanistan for the benefit of all its citizens. We stress the importance of calm and urge all partiesto reject violence and resolve differences through dialogue.”
Oh, really President Obama? They killed 20 people because of “differences” (like the burning of a Koran) that can be resolved if only people would have a nice rap session? I suppose he can now pat himself on his smug back for being such a good multicultural Citizen of the World ™. While President Obama and the media prostrate themselves at the altar of multiculturalism, what they are actually doing is proving themselves to be fools and racists.
Because what they believe, and what they expect us to believe, is that the killers in Afghanistan are just poor dumb “brown people” who don’t know any better. They are so simple-minded, in fact, that they can be led astray and led to commit heinous acts of murder by one unknownpastor. Never mind the fact that they behead their own people and stone women to death for the horrendous crime of baring an ankle. Or, you know, being the victim of a rape.
We philistines just don’t understand the nuance of their culture and the religion of Islam, you see.
UPDATE: President Obama also said the following (via Jake Tapper):
POTUS 1/3: “The desecration of any holy text, including the Koran, is an act of extreme intolerance and bigotry…
POTUS 2/3: “However, to attack and kill innocent people in response is outrageous, and an affront to human decency and dignity.”
Yeah, no. To say that the reason they committed such barbaric acts was “in response” to *anything* is an act of bigotry as well as an affront to human decency and dignity.
