What's a Muslim...

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: smoking gun

Obama is a product of 9/11. He is the culture's effort to say, 'here is someone who may be a "Muslim", but he still can be President, see we like "Muslims", we are not bad guys, please don't hit us again" Like it or not, the masses of Americans are suffering from a collective Post Tramatic Stress Disorder. A "Stockholm" sysndrome. We make every effort to accomodate, legitimize, and promote the "Muslim". Even if we don't even know what a "Muslim" is.

Politicians, the media,academia, and the elites have failed to examine the behaviors and attitudes of the "Muslims", except to declare our "Muslims" are good, assimilate Americans. Hard working, honest, and dedicated to life liberty and the American way. Obama fits a unique niche. An African American, with a "Muslim" connection, with an elite American education.
