Yesterday, President Obama gave yet another nauseating rendition of his new favorite excuse, “Don’t blame me or the terrorists, blame the YouTube video!” This time, however, he embarrassed us further in front of the whole world as he placated the leaders at the U.N. and refused to use the words “terrorist attack” to describe the attacks on the embassies in the Middle East.
As we already know, the Coward-in-Chief has been in panic mode ever since terrorists in the Middle East coordinated attacks on our embassies. And while the Libyan Embassy saw a military-style attack with machine guns and RPGs which resulted in the death of four people, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, the Obama Administration is still sticking to their lies and claiming that the “protests” were an impromptu event caused by a YouTube video that defamed their prophet, Muhammad. But then again, this is the same administration that claims the terrorists dragging Stevens’ dead body through the streets were just “helping” him.
Obama is a coward, and he’s free to cower all he wants as a weak-willed private citizen. But as our supposed Commander-in-Chief, he has a sworn duty to work to protect America. Instead, not only are we fed lies about why and how these terrorist attacks occurred, but we must endure the humiliation of this traitor sympathizing with our enemies?
“In every country, there are those who find different religious beliefs threatening. In every culture, those who love freedom for themselves must ask themselves how much they’re willing to tolerate freedom for others. And that is what we saw play out in the last two weeks, where a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. Now, I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity. It is an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well.”
First of all, drop the act with this YouTube business. While I’m certain it ticked off a lot of Muslims, let’s not pretend like we have not been at war with radical Islam for decades now. Things weren’t fine on Monday, and then come Tuesday, when they learned of some obscure video in California, they didn’t just pick up the nearest RPG they had laying around and say, “Well, I had some things to do today, but I can squeeze in an attack on the embassy.” No, to continually drill into us that the root cause of the attacks was the video is to ignore 40 years of hostile tensions between the Middle East and the West and four years of incredibly weak foreign policy that has created a massive quagmire of instability.
Fundamentally, these attacks do not seem to affect Obama nearly as much as they ought to affect every American. Our embassies were attacked, and he does not seem the least bit interested in protecting them further, finding out who is responsible and punishing them, bolstering our power abroad and indicating that another attack will be met with swift and harsh retaliation nor even making a declarative statement that any excuse, pretext or reason to attack our embassies is unacceptable. Instead, all we seem to get is, “Alright, I said some things, you said some things… Let’s just bury the hatchet, hmm?”
Now let’s hear from a real leader:
The ever-poignant Congressman Allen West was just as disturbed as I about Obama’s statement to the U.N. West stated,
“The attacks on the civilians in Benghazi were attacks on America. We are grateful for the assistance we received from the Libyan government and from the Libyan people. There should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice.
In his speech today to the United Nations, President Obama stated six times that the attacks across the Islamic world are attributed to a silly video. Furthermore, he refused to use the words terrorist attack in referring to what occurred in Benghazi Libya at our US Consulate on the 11th anniversary of 9-11. He continues to offer up apologies instead of defending our hard earned First Amendment right to freedom of speech and expression. There is no message to this silly video trailer, and it is beneath the dignity and esteem of the Office of the President of the United States to mention it at all. When tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide. I shall not be tolerant of the intolerant. I know about the UN Resolution 1618 which would make any statement deemed by the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) ‘offensive’ to Islam a crime…..NOT ON MY WATCH FELLAS!
My statement to the United Nations would have been, ‘The future does not belong to those who attack our Embassies and Consulates and kill our Ambassadors. The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence.’”
Alright, I’ll admit it, my favorite part: “The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence.” If West were our president, with a promise like that, how many terrorists would reconsider messing with America?
42 days until election. We need a leader, not an apologist.
