Rios: Obama is an Atheist Who Loves Islam

The Christian right has long had a problem deciding what Obama really is religiously. Is he a radical leftist Christian, as they claimed in 2008 when Rev. Wright was getting all that attention? Is he a Muslim? Or is he an atheist and secularist? Sandy Rios appears to have solved the dilemma:

“I don’t think that Barack Obama is a Muslim. I think he has strong Muslim sympathies because he’s been raised in that culture,” she said on her radio program today, adding that Obama is a Marxist who “doesn’t really believe in God but loves the Muslim culture.”

She insisted that the president has “actually written about in his book that if there was ever some kind of conflict, he will always come down on the side of Islam.”

Rios is actually citing a fake quote that was widely circulated on the Internet but was not actually in Obama’s book “Dreams From My Father.” This, of course, isn’t the first time that Rios has used a fictitious chain email or fabricated remark and reported it as true…in fact, she has cited this very same quote to claim that Obama’s “sympathies are most definitely with Islam.”

In the proud tradition of Humpty Dumpty, reality is whatever she declares it to be, even if she has to invent false evidence to support it.

    I think that was Tweedle-Dum, not Humpty Dumpty.

    But Humpty Dumpty knew exactly what he was doing (‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.’). It’s not so clear that Rios and her ilk don’t actually “live” in their alternate reality.

    I rather took him to be sincere adherent of Christianity in the name of pragmatism. It’s a thing I’ve absolutely never been able to get my head round, particularly the sincere part.

    Were it not Humpty what done it, I’m sure it would have been Tweedle Dee and certainly not Tweedle Dum.

    “strong Muslim sympathies” = “saying anything not absolutely and rabidly hateful about them”

    In the best tradition of inventing facts to support invented facts, it was the Cheshire Dinosaur.

    “Sandy Rios appears to have solved the dilemma:”

    Sandy Rios probably cannot spell dilemma.

  • dugglebogey

    They cannot prove that Obama loves muslims, but they can certainly prove that Obama doesn’t hate muslims, and that’s good enough for them.

    Coherent argument…not so much…!

    Random, unrelated, fatuous, mewling’s used in vague support of utter risible balderdash…much more descriptive!

    These people are functionally corrupted and damaged beyond reasonable use by jeebus induced head rot…that is all!
