Absurd...

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by truth (United States), Jun 19, 2009 at 21:20

... JFK was the first catholic president and nothing near this level of hate speech was circulating.

Obama has an undeniable Muslim upbringing, but why did this seem to make the headlines?

His past has nothing to do with national security, it has much more to do with the fact that he is a variegated individual that can humanize the very people the neocon agenda has depicted as baby-eating dirty filth.

This is the impetus for such questioning. God Forbid, the American people might actually see that Muslims are humans that bleed, cry, and laugh like any mother, father, brother and sister.

This absurd interest in condemning him for who he is, is discrimination in its ugliest form.

And for what, to advance a political agenda that predicates we see the Muslim World as enemies to be sanctioned and processed for fine, fine oil.

It is this hate agenda that brings this question to pass, nothing venerable, nothing respectable, an inner hatred for the other, as simple as that.
