    Because he is an enemy of Israel and has said stuff like this



    I think he is an atheist but he is advancing an Islamic agenda globally in the name of political correctness.

    Firebrand saidI think he is an atheist but he is advancing an Islamic agenda globally in the name of political correctness.

    Probably the most accurate description. His real religion is his ideology, spreading the wealth in the US in the spirit of French Socialist Hollande, and spreading the wealth from the US to other countries in the spirit of anti-colonialists.

    He is a Christian or a Muslim out of convenience and political opportunism. He was a Christian in Reverend Wright's church because it helped his ascent in Chicago politics and gave him the opportunity to master Wright's skills of oratory and persuasion.

    That's an easy one.
    They're not allowed to come out and say that they hate him because he's black.

    Because Obama sounds too much like Osama.

    No one ever said America was all Mensa members.

    Obama is falsly believed by some to be Muslim for the same reason that Firebrand stated and SoCal seconded; "Because he is an enemy of Israel' which is a direct and baseless lie. These kind of people have an Ideology that differs from Obama so they attack Obama's beliefs and motives telling baseless lies, because it serves their purpose to try and get him out of office.




    Firebrand and SoCal can you give any examples or proof that Obama hates Israel because he differs with Netanyahu over settlement building on Palestinian homeland ? Disagreeing or criticism does not a hater make.


    Another reason Obama is believed by so many to be a Muslim is that The monied groups such as the Koch Bro's have their own interests in mind and they are useing fear mongering through advertising they pay for to repeat lies and misinformation in hopes of winning.

    Its a sick state of affairs that the ignorant Public like the above Firebrand and SoCal with Ideological differences are more than happy to believe whatever lie is told that goes along with removing Obama.

    It's the result of years of Right Wing propaganda to slander Obama in a way they hope will alienate Jewish voters, and all Americans who were traumatized by 9/11. And Obama's name and upbringing lend themselves to this lie.

    Firebrand, Here's proof from a Top Israeli Military official that says your statement is completely false. Would you care to revise your statement ?

    Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak threw cold water on the right-wing media narrative that President Obama is anti-Israel, praising Obama for doing "more" for Israeli security than any other U.S. president.

    In an interview with Wolf Blitzer that aired yesterday on CNN's The Situation Room, Barak responded to a question about the state of the current U.S.-Israeli relationship by saying, "I should tell you honestly that this administration under President Obama is doing, in regard to our security, more than anything that I can remember in the past."

    BLITZER: You've studied U.S.-Israeli relations over many years. How would you describe the relationship today?

    BARAK: I think that from my point of view as defense minister they are extremely good, extremely deep and profound. I can see long years, administrations of both sides of the political aisle deeply supporting the state of Israel, and I believe that reflects the profound feelings among the American people. But I should tell you honestly that this administration under President Obama is doing, in regard to our security, more than anything that I can remember in the past.

    BLITZER: More than any other president? LBJ, Bill Clinton, or George W. Bush?

    BARAK: Yeah, in terms of the support for our security, the cooperation of our intelligence, the sharing of thoughts in a very open way even when there are differences, which are not simple sometimes, I found their support for our defense very stable.

    Barak's praise for Obama on Israeli security flies in the face of the right-wing media's false narrative that Obama is hostile to Israel, a narrative that goes as far back as 2008. These bogus attacks include claims that Obama and members of his administration are anti-Semitic and that Obama may use military force against Israel.

    Two words: Talk. Radio.

    I personally think Obama's an atheist but has to do the Christian thing for show. Hell, I think MOST of our Presidents from the past 30-40 years aren't all that religious. The only exception I think would be Jimmy Carter.

    anti-colonialists>in the positive


    I dont know where you guys come up with this shit. But clearly Rush Limbaugh and Alex Jones's wigs are being snatched by this point.


    That's nothing new for socalfitness and firebrand. They have been parroting nonsensical conspiracies for as long as we can remember them. There is no theory too far out of bounds.

    I wouldn't mind an atheist president, if he was one. Not that it matters. What's important is that he's rational and level headed, and not a gay-bullying flip flopper like Romney.

    If you want someone religious, Bachmann has a lot of the raving lunatic qualities most religious people have. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Notice that neither Firebrand nor SoCal will respond to the facts !!! SoCal only know how to quote from fellow partisan fanatics, but won't deal with facts.,
    OLD MAN SoCal, DISPUTE THE FACTS FROM A TOP ISRAELI OFFICIAL !!

    TRY TO EXPLAIN THE FACTS AWAY WITH YOUR CHRISTIAN FUNDI AND TBAGGER FANATICISM AGAINST OBAMA,

    WE ARE WAITING !!!

    Here's an example of commenters on a Christian site called WND on a subject involving Christian/Muslim relations. You be the judge from the comments, but its quite apparent that a lot of christians have bought into the fear mongering being pushed by Christian and conservative sites. This stuff is getting crazy fanatical.


    Edwin T. Miller



    A mild form of Christian persecution is occurring here in the good ole USA today. It is mild but like everything else it will escalate to out right abuse in the near future. Christianity is being replaced by Islam in the U S and it will get ugly in years to come. Since 2008 Christianity has been attacked starting with Obama's statement that America is no longer a Christian nation. Obama's objective is to install Islam as Americas religion and plans to make America an Islamic nation. Obama's speeches are influenced by the Anti-Christ.

    I will fight to the bitter end, I will fight the fight and never give up my faith. I will burn as many korans and educate those freedoms to the ignorant. I will train an army of soldiers to take the fight to the enemy.
    It is time to take the fight to the muslim faith by seeing if they would like homosexuals using there bible and there churches to get married. It is time to support Israel who knows what side to be on and give them our expertise to take the fight to the bad guys.
    It is time to round up those idiots in charge ie politicians, congressmen, senators, lobyists, those x presidents and tar&feather them and run them out of dodge!!
    Its time to take back our great country and rise up from the ashes because yes we can do something. When you tired of paying bills, tired of not having time, losing your property and losing the fight because you feel you lost control...its time to fight!!

    The one that is really at work here big time, is satan himself. He 's the one that wants us to deny God and His son Jesus Christ because he hates us. Why? Because he knows we love God and God loves us. And he knows God has a plan, a very good plan for us. Satan is working through mankind by trying to get rid of us. And those that are not close to God, nor know him, nor care...are the very ones he's working through to try and destroy us. The only one that can save our country is God, but only if we listen to him and come back to him. Otherwise, we're going to end up like the country you have just read about.

    To T-Texas: You are being lead like sheep to slaughter in free-masonry. I DARE you to
    read the 32nd and 33rd degree mason "motto". You are being gradually sucked in by Satan himself! DO NOT laugh - read it for yourselves everyone! Yes, many of our founding fathers
    were mislead by this group. But most of our problems happened in 1964 when we told God to get out of schools and that we can murder his creations in the womb. He is an obliging God, who said OK, but He cannot wait to see us repent and then he will heal our land.
