Some of us already know that Barack Obama is the first anti-American, Muslim president in the history of the United States. But in the last few months, he has ramped up his efforts to prove it.
According to an article posted on the New Times Times website today, Mr. Obama is quietly reaching out to Muslims in a "sustained and widening effort that has left even skeptics surprised."
You're probably thinking, what's wrong with Obama reaching out to the Muslims? And you would be right, because the president should make an effort to reach out to all the people -- not just a small segment of society.
But Obama has an appalling track record when it comes to reaching out to black people who aren't rappers. And he is quietly alienating the African American politicians who helped him get elected.
Just last month, tensions began to rise as the Congressional Black Caucus complained loudly that Obama and his administration weren't listening to them.
According to Politico, some members of the Caucus say they are getting "far too little support from the nation’s first black president — a man they once believed would be their strongest champion."
Meanwhile, Obama has lifted a ban allowing Radical Muslims to enter the United States, and he has given jobs to a number of questionable Muslims -- one of whom publicly attacked the government for prosecuting Muslim terrorists.
In February, the president appointed Rashad Hussain, a 31-year-old White House lawyer, to become the United States’ special envoy (a kind of ambassador) to large Muslim countries.
On Feb. 22, The Washington Examiner ran an editorial with the headline “Obama Selects a Voice of Radical Islam.” The mainstream media stayed quiet on the newest appointee, but Fox News jumped all over the story.
The newly appointed Hussain immediately came under fire when it was discovered that Mr. Hussain, while still a student at Yale Law School, referred to the government's prosecution of domestic (Muslim) terrorists as "politically motivated."
Of course, when asked about his anti-American statements, Mr. Hussain had a momentary lapse of memory (as do all of Obama's appointees when their pasts come back to haunt them).
The NY Times writer points out that "at first, the White House said Mr. Hussain did not recall making the comments, which had been removed from the Web version of a 2004 article published by a small Washington magazine."
Ah, yes, the old scrub the website clean trick that the White House pulls when they don't want the media or the American people to have the real facts. Mr. Hussain finally acknowledged making the statements when someone slipped Politico.com a clear recording of Mr. Hussain making his incriminating statements.
The NY Times article points out that "Muslim and Arab-American advocates have participated in policy discussions and received briefings from top White House aides and other officials" on everything from health care legislation, foreign policy, the economy, immigration and even national security!
Meanwhile, the National Black Caucus continues to complain bitterly that Obama has so far ignored the group's efforts to meet with White House officials to focus on the poor. And they argue that Obama has done little to address the rising unemployment rate among the black community.
In fact, the more the Congressional Black Caucus pushes the White House to listen to them, the more Obama pushes back.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers told Politico.com that Obama called and accused him of “demeaning” him by criticizing White House polices on health care and Afghanistan.
That bit of news didn't sit well with many African-American lawmakers, aides and lobbyists, who revere Conyers as an elder statesman.
“Conyers has been in Congress longer than Barack Obama could spell,” said a black strategist close to both the White House and Congress. “If he’s making a complaint, it’s a shot across the bow, and you might want to pay attention to that."
Trust that some of us have been paying attention to Obama's anti-American moves since before Obama was elected. It's a shame that the mainstream media is just now beginning to notice.
