Well folks, it was bound to happen. We are a week out from what could be the death of Hillary Clinton’s chance to win the nomination. It should be no surprise an attack on Obama circulated this weekend.
Matt Drudge of the well known website The Drudge Report posted a photograph of Barack Obama dressed in a white turban and robe on Monday. He claims was sent e-mailed over the weekend from “Clinton staffers.”
In an interview with WOAI radio in San Antonio Barack defended the outfit.
"Everybody knows that whether it's me or Senator Clinton or Bill Clinton that when you travel to other countries they ask you to try on traditional garb that you have been given as a gift," he said. "The notion that the Clinton campaign would be trying to circulate this as a negative on the same day that Senator Clinton was giving a speech about how we repair our relationships around the world is sad."
Of course Hillary Clinton claims she knows nothing about the photo…
Yeah, she knows nothing about it…right. Just like she didn’t know where those Rose Law Firm billing records were, or who hired Craig Livingston, had no idea her husband was planning to pardon some Puerto Rican thugs to help her election chances in New York, and the whole Monica Lewinsky thing was dreamed up by the “vast right winged conspiracy.”
Now Obama is correct in his defense. Politicians frequently were attire according to the culture when abroad. When in Rome do as the Romans do. I am sure if we looked hard enough we could find all kinds of photos of Hillary in strange outfits. So why would she leak a photo? What is the deal?
Simple…The Clinton camp knew this was a clever way to play the Muslim and race card unnoticed. Obama is not your typical white politician dressing up in African robes, he is a black politician dressed up as an African leader. She also knows Obama wearing a turban makes him appear to be Muslim!
This is a sleazy cheap shot from a despicable woman that will do anything to get elected.
Oh did I say Islamic terrorism? Oops, looks like I just offended Muslims!
According to a report from Reuters Muslims are upset by some of the words used in the fight of the Global War on Terror.
For instance the word "jihad" frequently used by al Qaeda, counter intelligence specialists and the media to describe a “holy war” against the West generally means to most Muslim's a spiritual struggle. Many Muslims are also offended by phrases such as “Islamic terrorism” or “Islamic fascists.”
Isn’t that sad, we should be more sensitive…more politically correct and tolerant. What a bologna sandwich!
Instead of being offended by the words used in the fight, perhaps they should be offended by and join the fight against Islamic terrorist and extremist that have hijacked their religion to spread an ideology that justifies acts of violence, intolerance and mass murder!
I have no apologies of my use of words. I call them Islamic terrorist or Islamic extremists because that is what they are. If their actions do not fall inline with true Islamic faith, then Muslim leaders need to loudly denounce and take action against them. So far that has never happened.
I have nothing against Islam or any religion. I understand there are Muslims that just want to be left alone. I get it. I have seen them, met them, talked to them and done business with them in Iraq and Afghanistan. They are good, decent people, but their religious leadership has allowed Islamic extremist and terrorist to redefine their religion.
Environmentalists at London’s Heathrow airport breached security and climbed on top of a British Airways Boeing 777 plane to protest the expansion of the airport in the name of global warming or climate change of course. How the hell did they get to the airplane without being apprehended? Good thing they weren’t Islamic terrorists!
The government of Pakistan has ordered all Internet service providers block YouTube because it contains "blasphemous" content and material that is considered offensive to Islam. What about those propaganda Islamic terrorist sites? You know the ones showing U.S. troops being killed by IEDs and stuff. Are those “blasphemphemous” and offensive to Islam?
