In a betrayal of America and American values, Barack Hussein Obama sets up a false equivalency between historic Christians and Americans, and contemporary Arabs, Islamists and Terrorists
In a contorted attempt at establishing a “moral equivalence” with Islamic extremists, the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, verbally slammed Christianity over he ages, including American Christians — Instead of asking the poignant question why does medieval violence persist among so many Islamic extremists in the present-day world
Surprise, surprise ! — President’s remarks come on the day after a “Secret Meeting” with “Islamic leaders” at the White House
MAIN STREAM MEDIA CLEANS UP THE PRESIDENT’S DISGUSTING INSULTS IN ITS REPORTSIf you looked to most of the mainstream outlets for a report of what President Obama said at the National Prayer Breaksfast, this is some of what you would find:
“Obama praises Dalai Lama at prayer breakfast USA TODAY-5 hours ago “President Obama praised the Dalai Lama and condemned the Islamic ... The National Prayer Breakfast is an annual Washington event that ...”; Obama condemns those who seek to 'hijack religion'

OBAMA AT NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST: ’PEOPLE COMMITTED TERRIBLE DEEDS IN THE NAME OF CHRISTAmong other things, earlier today “...[a]t the National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama reminded attendees that violence rooted in religion isn’t exclusive to Islam, but has been carried out by Christians as well. *** Obama said that even though religion is a source for good around the world, there will always be people willing to ‘hijack religion for their own murderous ends.’ *** ‘Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,’ Obama said. ‘In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.’...” (See “Obama at National Prayer Breakfast: ‘People Committed Terrible Deeds inthe Name of Christ” by Charlie Spiering, 2/5/15, Breitbart News/ Big Government [http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/02/05/obama-at-national-prayer-breakfast-people-committed-terrible-deeds-in-the-name-of-christ/]).
The Breitbart report went further, and said, “Obama also denounced Islamic State terrorists for professing to stand up for Islam when they were actually ‘betraying it.’ *** ‘We see ISIL, a brutal vicious death cult that in the name of religion carries out unspeakable acts of barbarism,’ he said criticizing them for ‘claiming the mantle of religious authority for such actions.’...”
However, don’t think for one moment that Barack Hussein Obama’s performance at the National Prayer Breakfast was in any way logical, fair or benign. It was a malicious attempt at establishing a contemporary moral equivalency between Christianity and western ways with Islamic, and Levantine practices and values .
WHY COMPARE LONG-AGO EVENTS WITH CONTEMPORARY ATROCITIES AND THE STRATEGIC USE OF TERRORISM — PRESIDENT NEEDS TO LOOK AT WHY RADICAL ISLAM IS TERRORIZING THE GLOBEWriting for National Review On Line, Victor Davis Hanson rhetorically asks Obama these pertinent questions: “...[W]hat is the point of citing sins of 1,000, 500, 150, or 50 years ago, without acknowledging 1) that such pathologies still continue today outside the West, especially in the world of Islam, and 2) that Christianity had a unique role in ending these wrongs?” And “... [W]why does such medieval violence persist to a much greater degree among so many Islamic extremists in the present world than among most zealots of other religions? (This is an empirical statement. Cf., for instance, the nature of recent global terror attacks in resources such as the Global Terrorism Database). And why search the distant past for examples of moral equivalence, unless the present does not offer suitable data?...” (See “Still More of President Obama’s Moral Equivalence” by Victor Davis Hanson, 2/5/15, National Review On Line
Victor Davis Hanson concluded his article with this: “The president and his advisers should be investigating why radical Islam is currently terrorizing the globe, rather than denying it entirely, hiding it by euphemisms, or excusing it by citing morally equivalent examples from the past.”
REPORTS OF YESTERDAY’S “SECRET MEETING” AT WHITE HOUSE WITH “MUSLIM LEADERS” — AND A COMEDIANBreitbart News also reported today that “[t]he White House is telling reporters it will keep secret the names of those who attended President Obama’s meeting with Muslim leaders on Wednesday. *** ‘I don’t have a list of those who attended, but let me see if I can try to extract some more information from them for you,’ spokesman Josh Earnest explained. *** ‘The president has many meetings at the White House and certainly not all of them include some press coverage,’ Earnest added. *** By publishing the meeting on the White House schedule, Earnest said that ‘we were as transparent as we could be’ and pointed to a ‘blog post’ that he hoped would ‘characterize the discussion that occurred.’ *** The post was written [ ] by a comedian who attended the meeting and published an essay late yesterday, ridiculing Republicans in the Daily Beast. *** As White House reporters pressed Earnest, he admitted that the records would eventually end up in the White House Visitor Access records, as is now customary for the Obama administration....” (See “WHITE HOUSE WON’T RELEASE LIST OF MUSLIM LEADERS WHO MET OBAMA – YET” by Charlie Spiering, 2/5/15, Breitbart News/ Big Government [http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/02/05/white-house-wont-release-list-of-muslim-leaders-who-met-obama-yet/).
Interestingly, although the American mainstream media seems to have completely ignored yesterday’s gathering of Muslims at the White House, some in “the electronic press” in India thought it to a be a somewhat more interesting news event (See “Obama Meets Muslim Leaders, Discusses Extremism Challenge” by “PN”, 2/5/15, The New India Express [http://www.newindianexpress.com/world/Obama-Meets-Muslim-Leaders-Discusses-Extremism-Ch]; see also “Obama discusses extremism challenges with Muslim leaders” posted in “The Indian Awaaz,” 2/5/15, Indian Awaaz/ International Awaaz [http://theindianawaaz.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=24229&catid=18]); along with some other of their blogging colleagues ( See “Obama discusses [I]slamic State challenge with Muslim leaders” posted by Sahara Samay, 2/5/15,
