Does Obama want a Muslim Nation?

Original post made by Teacake Frank on Jan 23, 2013

It certainly appears as if Obama would rather support Islam than Christianity. As part of it's war on Christians, the Obama Administration is now doling huge helpings of economic aid to the Islamic scourge.

So opines a North Carolina congressman who is denouncing the use of federal dollars to "promote [among a host of other religions and civilizations] the rich cultural heritage of Islamic civilizations."

Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) told Fox News that he was appalled by the hundreds of thousands of dollars used to fund the program through a National Endowment for the Humanities grant – calling it "wasting taxpayer money."

Jones was referring to the "Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys" program. The NEH program put dozens of books promoting the Islamic culture IN MORE THAN 800 LIBRARIES in all 50 states. The program is funded by a $1.8 million grant.

NEH Communications director Judy Havemann told Fox News the "Muslim Journeys Bookshelf" is funded by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. It was unclear how much taxpayer money was used to facilitate the project.

Is there no end to Obama's efforts to indoctrinate the American public? Parents, keep your children out of public libraries. They are socialist and increasingly used to spread the word of Mohammed across this once great land.

And what can be done? In the words of America's greatest President, George W. Bush, instead of going to the library, "Go shopping."

Here is a list from NEH where they provided support for religious topics: Web Link Islamic topics go back as far as 1982, which would cover presidents Reagan, H. W. Bush, Clinton, W. Bush, and Obama.

Get a load of Kathleen Ruegsegger using statistics to disguise the truth. Yes, the list shows there was SOME coverage of Islamic topics way back to 1982, but then what happened? Hint: Sept, one day short of a dozen. Yes, and then America elected a Muslim president. The Islamic topics introduced during Obama's Administration is over two full pages!!! How many pages for Christianity? You can run but you can't hide. Keep your kids out of public libraries! It will protect them from indoctrination, and you can do so while stimulating the economy in your visits to the mall.

Wow! I used to have respect for you Kathleen, but I'm beginning to wonder if you aren't a closet Christian hater. Because the list you provide, and which you refuse to support even though you introduced it and seem to have some motive in presenting it to us twice now, has virtually no topics on Christianity. Only Islam, some Hindu, and a few other mongrel infidel religions.

Most important, the majority of these Islamic apologistic, Christian bashing sites are brought to us by, you guessed it, our Holy Saracen Leader B. Hussien Obama. You can stick your head in the sand all you want to. But facts are facts.

Here is more from NEH: Web Link

Also this on Obama's previous proposed funding cuts to NEH: Web Link

I personally think it's all fiction (other than the impact to cultures). I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I just do not see the conspiracy you do.

Well, there it is! A proposed cut to funding of Christian art works while stacking the deck with Islamic doctrines. The facts you've presented support my claims. Thank you, though this gives no excuse for your persistent head in the sand approach.

Cholo, you've spent too much time in libraries and now all you can do is call out names and present us with your liberal disease infected "diversity" (diversionary) mush. Go to the mall. Shop a little? What? No money? No job? And our socialist libraries have taken away your brain. Go figure!

What ARE you talking about . . . cutting Christian art, adding Islamic doctrine? I'll spare the white space and not re-post what the site says, but it says nothing of the kind.

Staceleen, (oh man, I'm never going to forgive myself for saying this, but...) you're being baited. Just don't bite. Unless you're being baited by me, of course!

Chomp Chomp!

Thanks Nurse, but I don't see it as baiting. Someone made a claim; I just went looking for the facts.


Posted by Teacake Frank, a resident of Downtown

Who's baiting who? I've looked at the list. Have you? Look at all the references to mongrel religion, especially of the Islamic sort, and compare it to the Christian. Especially under the antiChristian Obama empire. Besides, whose to say that the list isn't partial? And it isn't what the list SAYS it is, its what the government is doing. Fact number one, its spending my tax money on Islamic causes. Fact number two, its doing this more under Hussien Obama's rain than in the Bush administration. A lot more. Fact number three, Obama cut spending for arts but increased spending for Islamic causes. Therefore, Obama is harkening to the call of Mohammud at my expense and the expense of all good God-fearing Christians. Wake up people!!!

No, go back to sleep, people! Let Obama harken to the call!

That's right, go back to sleep. That's why the American people re-installed a Muslim Commander in Chief in office. Does anyone doubt that the raised price on postage is going to help fund more Islamic doctrine?

Yes, and I, for one, welcome our new Islamic overseers. More moolah for more mullahs, please, Mr. President. Hail to the sheik!

Your joke failed. Just goes to show you don't know much about our nation's history. Our 13 colonies, many of them Catholic, protested the exorbitantly high tax on tea, not fruit.

@ Teacake Frank

My ancestry dates back to the 1850's when both sides of my genetic family first arrived in Albuquerque New Mexico. My great, great grandfather was a state senator in the late 1850 and a landed merchant. Suddenly immigrants from a foreign land came in and invaded his territory and took his land, his business and his life. Who do you think those foreign invaders were??? You got it Teacake ... look in the mirror and tackle that rascal for his diabolical deeds? You will have done us all a favor.

Excuse me ... My ancestry in the United States dates back to the 1550'S ... my mistake. Yes, that's before the Mayflower in 1620.


Posted by Teacake Frank, a resident of Downtown

Yeah, but you guys lost your property rights because you didn't know how to write up landed deeds and contracts. Now the likes of you and your ilk want to take Americans' guns away as prelude to taking back what you mistakenly think belongs to you. Well, some tyrant in Washington DC can make me pay your kid's college tuition, but you'll not take our guns away from us. Its NEW Mexico now, not Mexico.

By the way, Milo, what does your ancestry have to do with B. Hussien Obama spending my tax dollars for purposes of indoctrinating American (not Mexican) citizens with Islamic propaganda? And how am I supposed to look in the mirror when my sight is blinded by a whirlwind of my hard earned dollars being vacuumed out of my wallet?

For what it's worth, America is not a Christian nation. The First Amendment guarantees freedom of religion. Any religion as well as freedom FROM religion.

It's curious to me that the same people who accuse President Obama of being a Muslim are the ones who got upset with his Baptist minister's criticism of the government.

Does "My country, right or wrong" only apply when it's someone else's president?

Appalled, America was founded on Christian principles, like it or not. You can deny this fact all you want, and twist the 1st amendment to meet your idea of an atheists utopia, but it won't change a thing about our history or our current demographics.

Obama may represent you and thousands of other like-minded victims and govt dependents, but the other 50+% of our citzens are counting the days until this amateur is finally out of the White House and following in Jimmy Carter's footsteps.
