THE FRIDAY FOCUS
Free Speech In Obama’s America Edition
Conor Friedersdorf has a column up at the Atlantic which partly inspired this post. In it, he makes the case for why he is refusing to vote for Barack Obama. It’s a well laid out article, but the thrust of it is what spurred me to open this edition of the Friday Focus with it. That thrust being the media, liberals and Democrats all ignoring the activities they do not like about this President. An excerpt:
How can you vilify Romney as a heartless plutocrat unfit for the presidency, and then enthusiastically recommend a guy who held Bradley Manning in solitary and killed a 16-year-old American kid? If you’re a utilitarian who plans to vote for Obama, better to mournfully acknowledge that you regard him as the lesser of two evils, with all that phrase denotes.
But I don’t see many Obama supporters feeling as reluctant as the circumstances warrant.
The whole liberal conceit that Obama is a good, enlightened man, while his opponent is a malign, hard-hearted cretin, depends on constructing a reality where the lives of non-Americans — along with the lives of some American Muslims and whistleblowers — just aren’t valued. Alternatively, the less savory parts of Obama’s tenure can just be repeatedly disappeared from the narrative of his first term, as so many left-leaning journalists, uncomfortable confronting the depths of the man’s transgressions, have done over and over again.
Please do read the whole thing.
Now, how does this tie in to the title of this edition ‘Free Speech in Obama’s America’? Let’s start with Obama’s recent speech at the U.N., which when you boil it down is summed up in one line:
“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” – Barack Obama, U.N. Address September 2012 Continue reading
Of all the conventions I have watched over the years, I never have witnessed such open anti-Semitism, racism, and bigoted rhetoric as I have during the DNC in Charlotte this year. I’m beyond appalled and don’t even recognize the party of which I was a member of for over 10 years. I watched half of the party (really more than half judging by the loudness of the Nay’s) informally begin their own Intifada. I’m horrified.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5OP9tZAQlg&feature=em-uploademail]
The vote on the floor regarding Jerusalem was seriously disturbing – three times over disturbing. Wake up, Jewish voters. This party is visibly divided on Israel. While the vote was upsetting, so are these stories:
Ellison reacts to Jerusalem reference in party platform
DNC Delegate Member Of “Anti-Zionist” PAC Whose Platform States “The Official Story Of 9/11 Is Not True”
Obama Regime Again Refuses To Name Capital of Israel
It’s worth noting the official preferences of the DNC:
Radical Islam Joins the DNC
DNC’s Islamic prayer leader keynoted “Jihad Summer Camp” — two weeks before 9/11
U.S. Muslim Leader Wears Tattered American Flag As Scarf At DNC “Jumah” Prayer Event
How much more plainly spelled out to people have to have it made for them? This administration clearly despises Israel and Obama’s foreign policy has been one consistently aiding nations with desires bring Israel down. WAKE UP.
