“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” Obama tells the UN and its assembly of dictators and tyrants. And that much he has accomplished.
obama said, It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.”
Does that mean we are just to accept every and any thing regardless of how evil it might be?
If you wanted a clear indication that few news outlets are even aware conservatives exist, this was it.
Conservative sites descended on the comment like a flock of, well, journalists. Red State, Hot Air, Twitchy, Breitbart and National Review all felt it noteworthy to cover. Even the hypey site Mediaite wrote about it and called it “Obama’s tragic pander.”
Ben Shapiro of Breitbart said Obama’s comments were “precisely the opposite of what the Founders would have intended.” “Those who ‘slander the prophet of Islam’ are people exercising their right to free speech,” he continued. Red State’s Erick Erickson explained that orthodox Christians don’t believe Muhammad is a prophet. “Actual Christians, as opposed to many of the supposed Christians put up by the mainstream media, believe that Christ is the only way to salvation. Believing that is slandering Muhammad.”
Over at Hot Air, Erika Johnsen reminded readers that the Mideast unrest is not about the video. “[I]f we believe that all people have a right to express their views, even ones with which we disagree, why are we still talking about this dumb video?” she asked. The website Twitchy reminded readers that Obama himself had told “The View” to “the best way to marginalize” the video was to “ignore” it. “Yet he mentioned it a half a dozen times during his UN address,” Twitchy said.
The main stream media only focused on the not so funny joke obama make, when he said (paraphrasing) people call me bad names everyday and they have that right to do so. way to go Main Stream Media
