Why doesn't the Obama administration talk about anti-Christian speech?

It's funny how this movie on You Tube is being blamed for Islamic Terrorist. This is the narrative of the media. Not Obama's Middle East Policy or the fact the Embassy didn't have beefed up security around 9/11 but free speech is to blame.

I don't agree with what the guy said but he has every right to say it in America. It's the Radical Cleric's using this as an excuse to do what they already planned. They are anti-American and no amount of bowing by Obama will change that.

Why don't Obama and Hillary defend anti-Christian tirades that come from the left every other day?

So now the Christian Coptic is an extremist not the peaceful Muslims who were just singing We Are the World and then this evil extremist made them violent over a video on You Tube. Again, the left degrades Christianity fluently and not a peep from Obama or Hillary.

Why should we walk on egg shells to please extremist? If every American never mentioned Islam, they would still hate America. They don't need a You Tube video as an excuse.

IMO the video was specifically engineered and designed to provoke response. It is pouring salt in an open wound and needs to be addressed.

Anti Christian hate speech is wrong as well. But, currently, the immediate concern is trying to diffuse this current event. Once that's done - then the dialogue about other issues should be tabled.

Because religion has no place in politics.

Because they are not afraid of us?

I don't know probably many reason, but Christians in the country have become a very passive social club.

I told my son yesterday, if I decided to go outside and riot over being offended, I would be alone in the street, and he said and the cops would arrest you,
True they would.

If I do it I will have him post the video on the forum.

Can you include Obama's comments on "anti-Islam speech"?

Here are his comments. Nothing at all about Islam in there.

We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None.


"Religious Beliefs"... That INCLUDES Christianity, right?

My cynical side thinks the same group who made and released "Atlas Shrugged 7" and "2016; Obama's America" also did this video...

You can't underestimate crazy

You do know the Hillary Clinton is Obama's Secretary of State? So Hillary's words are Obama's words unless Hillary is now a Secretary of State without a President.

Also, it was Obama and HIS STATE DEPARTMENT, that supported the Muslim Brotherhood. Now they're in power and Obama doesn't know if there an ally?

Anyone with a half a brain could see this coming.

So in other words, all Christians have to do is murder diplomats, attack embassies around the world and demand that criticizing Jesus is a crime and then the issue of hate speech directed at Christians will no longer be subject to a double standard by the left?

Why should they? It's not really a problem. Atheists have a right to speech and many formed our constitution and initial government. In fact, I think it is the worst of the fundamentalist "Christians" who are picketing soldiers funerals and causing all kinds of nasty trouble from Koran burning to removing science from schools to molesting children and protecting pedophiles by hiding them out. I think Christians can be among the best people but like anything or people, you cannot really generalize and blame (or credit) a whole group for the actions of a few.

Um. This thread asked about Obama. I wasn't ready for a switcheroo.

I guess that would be you, then. Sorry about that. Birth defect or tragic accident? I have a whole brain.

Actually, learn more about the other half of Obama's brain.

Who is Valerie Jarrett?

dailycaller.com...


“Valerie is the quintessential insider,” one of her longtime friends told me during an interview for my book, The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House. “She functions as the eyes, ears, and nose of the president and first lady. She tells them who’s saying what about who, who’s loyal and who’s not. She advises them about who they should see when they visit a city or a foreign country. She determines who gets invited to the White House and who is left out in the cold.”

In the White House pecking order, Jarrett has more clout than the president’s chief of staff. During the savage internecine warfare between Jarrett and Obama’s first two chiefs of staff — Rahm Emanuel and Bill Daley — Obama sided most of the time with Jarrett, a classic limousine liberal who believes that Obama was elected president in order to engineer social change. Ultimately, Jarrett emasculated Emanuel and Daley and forced them from their jobs.

She has also been responsible for much of the incompetence and amateurism that have been the hallmarks of Obama’s time in office. Indeed, Jarrett has been on the wrong side of practically every consequential issue to come across the president’s desk. Some examples of her bonehead advice

Jesus does not care if you talk bad about him. Most people know that. Some Muslims don't know that Mohamed operates on the same principle.

Quite. Yet the conclusion flows quite logically in terms of "pouring salt in an open wound and needs to be addressed" and "the immediate concern is trying to diffuse this current event. Once that's done - then the dialogue about other issues should be tabled".

In other words, be violent and you are at the head of the left's agenda. Be peaceful and then we can table a dialogue.

Nope, you should have read the OP. Here's a line from it:


Why don't Obama and Hillary defend anti-Christian tirades that come from the left every other day?


Also, trying to separate Obama and Hillary is silly. Her words are his words. SHE'S HIS SECRETARY OF STATE!

I was not aware that crisis management was a practice limited to liberalism or the left. You put out the fire first, and then you investigate for arson and find answers.

This type of behaviour is (in a sense) dictating or engineering social behaviour towards islam.

They (the extremists) are dictating what we can do or say and the American government is enabling them.

Anyone blaming a video is disingenuous.

Hell take a look at any political campaign ad made to incite people. polarize whatever the hell people want to call it.

Burning a flag by American's is an action done to incite people.

But oh know don't you dare make a video mocking Islam when it is fine to do it to a Christian.

Bottom line it is fine to do it to everyone but a muslim which is BS.

Then show me where SHE defended anti-Islam speech!

If her words are his words, that means his words are her words, too, right? In that case, you can see a link to her comments in my above post.


NO. Her words are NOT his words. Her words are HER words. His words are HIS words. Personal responsibility, right? If the only way you can insult Obama is to use someone else's words, you're not doing a very good job.


HERE are her comments. Where does she defend anti-Islam speech? She mentions Islam ONCE:



Violence, we believe, has no place in religion and is no way to honor religion. Islam, like other religions, respects the fundamental dignity of human beings, and it is a violation of that fundamental dignity to wage attacks on innocents.


She mentions "religion" or "religious" 10 times.
