Because it would be evidence of a huge lie, that’s why

CNN’s Campbell Brown: So what if Obama was a Muslim or an Arab?

I guess this is another one of those daily moonbat posts. Well, maybe not moonbattery in the pure form, but a certain kind of willfull blindness seems to be in evidence.

You may find it hard to believe that this remains an issue in this campaign, but it does. The candidates, both candidates, are still getting questions about Barack Obama’s ethnicity and religion. If you are even semi-informed, then by now you already know that of course, Barack Obama is an American.image

Of course, Barack Obama is a Christian. Yet just a few days ago, there was a woman at a rally for John McCain incorrectly calling Obama an Arab

Of course? Willfull blindness much? Actually Campbell dear, he is an arab. If being 50% black allows you to be black, and being less than 50% black allows you to be black, then being significantly arabic on your father’s side allows you to be an arab. His father was, at most, the child of an arab and a black person. Or perhaps the child of two arabic black people. So daddy Barack is at least half arabic. The muslims in Kenya are black people, but they are also arabs. And they identify very strongly with being arabs. That’s why they have arabic names. The Christian blacks there have Christian names. Very simple.

So what if Obama was Arab or Muslim? So what if John McCain was Arab or Muslim? Would it matter?  When did that become a disqualifier for higher office in our country? When did Arab and Muslim become dirty words? The equivalent of dishonorable or radical? Whenever this gets raised, the implication is that there is something wrong with being an Arab-American or a Muslim. And the media is complicit here, too. We’ve all been too quick to accept the idea that calling someone Muslim is a slur.


Not true Campbell darlin. Calling someone a flea bitten, goat raping, carpet stealing, wife beating, pedophilic, 7th century dune coon is a slur. Calling anyone a jihadist is a slur, IF they’re innocent. But since you ask, so sorry to let you down, but you do remember 9/11? You do remember the 1972 Olympics? You do recall all those years in between with the endless series of terrorist acts all carried out by guys named Mohammed? Guess what? Islam - or if you must keep at least part of your so pretty head buried in the sand - “radical” or “fundamental” Islam is our enemy. And they’ve said so a billion times, for 1400 years now. It’s what violent jihad is all about. So maybe the lines have become just a wee bit blurred lately, and members of that faith are viewed with a bit of skepticism by the rest of us. Lie down with dogs, get up with a suicide vest. Smart muslims over here probably know enough to speak out against terrorism and violence, and the smartest ones know not to take their religion too too seriously. So yeah, unpleasant as it may be, we have “good muslims” and “bad muslims” in our midst. Until this thing is over, they’re going to have to walk on eggshells. But we aren’t shooting them in the street, we aren’t beating them in the dark (90% or more of these “islamaphobia” cases turn out to be self-induced, ie faked) and we have neither deported them nor rounded them up in camps. They aren’t even being fired from their jobs, and the police and other public services have bent over backwards to see that they aren’t getting unfair treatment. That’s as good as it’s ever going to get for people who share some major core identity with an avowed and active enemy of the United States.

There are more than 1.2 million Arab-Americans and about 7 million Muslim-Americans, former Cabinet secretaries, members of Congress, successful business people, normal average Americans from all walks of life. These are the people being maligned here, and we can only imagine how this conversation plays in the Muslim world. We can’t tolerate this ignorance—not in the media, not on the campaign trail. Of course, he’s not an Arab. Of course, he’s not a Muslim. But honestly, it shouldn’t matter.

I don’t know why you break those populations up, since 95% of all Arab-Americans are muslims, or at least were muslims when they came here. And honestly, they aren’t being maligned. Hardly at all. Less than us evil white males are, that’s for sure. And all the ones who might suffer a little malignment need to do is to change out of the Immigrant Pants, dress like Americans, and assimilate a little. At which point we wouldn’t be able to tell them from Hindus, which everyone knows are hard working, very well educated people with excellent family values.

But you were talking about Obama. Are you high sweetheart? Are you that naive? Or is this just more of CNN’s bias creeping in, trying to lay down some more guilt against us whiteys?

Let’s say he was, and had been up front about it:

“Hello, my name is Barrrrrrackkk Huzzzzein Obama. I’m an Arab-American Muslim who happens to be part African and part White. And I’m running for President, because I believe in a Change for Socialism, and I Hope you do too!”

He would have been allowed to campaign. But people would have somehow listened more to what he was saying. And taken a good hard look at his background, his family, and his friends. And wondered if it was a Good Thing, and likely decided it Wasn’t. And that’s all, really.

Now, let’s say he is, always was, and has been keeping it a secret. Which is what many people suspect right now, because so much of his past is locked away. This means he’s been lying to us. This means he is a total phony, a fake, a fraud, a pretender. And we don’t like that. So if these turned out to be true, believably true, then the evidence of a campaign of lies would be overwhelming. And he’d get about 8.2 million votes (your 1.2 plus your 7) at most. We’d reject him utterly. Because he tried to put one over on the whole damn country. Not because he was a member of the wrong religion or ethnic group. Because he was a liar. And maybe because he was a far left Socialist too.

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
