Even as Islamist terror attacks continue around the globe, Obama cautions Americans against stereotyping Muslims based on the actions of of a few extremists. “It’s not who we are,” he says.
The Washington Times reports: “In a clear warning shot at President-elect Donald Trump, President Obama said Tuesday the U.S. can only protect the homeland against terrorism by embracing Muslims and encouraging a society ‘that can criticize a president without retribution.’
Speaking to special operations troops at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, Mr. Obama delivered his final speech on the war on terrorism as a thinly veiled reminder for Mr. Trump about ‘what we’re fighting for.’
‘The United States of America is not a country that imposes religious tests as a price for freedom,’ Mr. Obama said in a reference to Mr. Trump’s proposal to temporarily ban Muslim immigrants. ‘The United States of America is not a place where some citizens have to withstand greater scrutiny or carry a special ID card or prove that they’re not an enemy from within.’
Obama said the U.S. must remain true to its values, that ‘each of us has a responsibility to sustain the universal right to speak your mind and protest against authority, to live in a society that’s open and free, that can criticize a president without retribution.’
World-wide, Muslims demonstrate that they’re the most intolerant humans on the planet, especially to those of other religions. They follow their religious book faithfully, which says “kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.” Hard to be less tolerant than “kill those who do not believe as you do.” Not a shred of tolerance in that command, is there?

NORM ‘n’ AL Note: There are several pretty amazing things in the above article. First is the fact that Mr. Obama thinks America needs his advice one more time. He came into office telling us what a super Christian he is, and he leaves office having missed no opportunity to help us understand he’s a Muslim. He has also missed no opportunity to lie to this country as few ever have. Apparently Obama thinks we’re all sitting around waiting for more of his lies and nonsense. Secondly, Obama obviously thinks the way to intimidate and control your enemies is to coddle them into submission. If we “embrace Islam” sufficiently well, the terrorists will all fall into line. It is absolutely plain from all Obama has tried but failed to do, that this approach is not even remotely workable. Maybe Obama would be willing to put his theory to the test by inviting a radical Islamic terrorist to the US on a mission to behead Obama before he leaves the White House. As the terrorist runs to greet him, with his razor-sharp blade glinting in the sunlight, Mr. O can begin his “embrace Islam” speech again to show us how well this approach might work. Thirdly, Obama mentions above that people in the US should not have to prove they are not “an enemy from within.” When the enemy among us is as obvious as Obama has proven HE is, additional proof is probably not necessary. Otherwise, it’s a pretty good idea.
