Judson Phillips, head of Tea Party Nation, continues his perfect track record of utter delusion while throwing a temper tantrum over the fact that the White House put out a routine press release about the fact that Muslims are making the hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca, this week.
Tens of millions of Americans practice the Christian faith. Even more culturally identify themselves as Christian, even if they only attend services once or twice a year.
Half a world away, Muslims are celebrating the Hajj. It is one of the major festivals of Islam.
And of course, Barack Obama had to release a statement supporting and acknowledging this.
Yep. Just like George W. Bush did for 8 years.
The White House is expected to be politically correct these days, so such a statement coming out might be in the same tradition as a White House statement or proclamation about Easter.
Er, what White House statement about Easter?
That’s right, in 2011; the White House issued no statement about Easter.
Actually, Obama hosted a prayer breakfast on Easter this year. And Bush didn’t issue Easter proclamations either. But let’s not let facts get in the way of a perfectly good moronic screed like this one:
The obvious question people ask when this subject is brought up is, “Is Obama a Muslim?”
I don’t think so.
Obama is a Marxist and as such, if he truthfully answered the question, he is probably an atheist. However, there is no dispute that he was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia and certainly carries that cultural experience with him.
What is beyond dispute is that Obama hates America. He hates everything that America stands for. He hates the goodness of America. He hates the prosperity of America. He hates the freedom of America…
Obama certainly believes in the old adage, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Islam is the enemy of America. It is the enemy of Christianity and Judaism. For Obama, it is a convenient ally to help him achieve his goals.
I don’t understand why the media continues to treat Phillips as a legitimate commentator on any subject (I recently saw him on CNN, for instance). The man is a weapons-grade lunatic.
