“The future must not be determined by those who insult the prophet of Islam." - Unnamed Zealot—

That unnamed zealot? President Obama.
So guess which world leader said, "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam" at the UN this morning.—

Yes, he said it. He said, “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam” during his speech to the United Nations today.
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims. It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the vision we will support.
Eh, to be credible or something we have to kinda sorta say stuff about the desecration of Jesus. But, you know. Whatever. The prophet!!!111
The future must not belong to those who insult the prophet of Islam, unless they give at least $1 million to an Obama Super PAC.—

And Twitter users are rightly outraged.
Our appeasement-oriented president compares crucifixion of Coptic Christians with "slandering the prophet of Islam." Absurd.—

Obama: "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam." – but it should belong to a party who booed God & Jerusalem??—

Unreal. The apologitis and dangerous policies of appeasement have reached epic levels. And in an incredibly dangerous and horrific way. The attempted quashing of free speech by President Obama continues and shows no signs of stopping. We cannot have a President of the United States who runs roughshod over our freedom, all in a pitiful attempt to appease those who wish to kill us and excuse their barbaric acts.
Further, yesterday during a taping of “The View,” President Obama admitted that the murders of four Americans in Libya was not just a mob action. Yet, he was unable to actually call it a terrorist attack.
That continued during his dangerously incompetent speech to the United Nations today.
No, offensive is the President of the United States condemning the First Amendment and the free exercise thereof. How dare you?
Terrorist attack? Just a bump in the road.
It’s all about the video! Again.
I heard the word "video" from Obama more than I heard the word "terrorist."—

Every time the president mentions that YouTube video he legitimizes the causal connection between it and the murder of four Americans. STOP.—

Obama just spoke to the UN. He sounded like a visiting dignitary from a Muslim country. He blamed terrorist violence on a no budget video.—

Obama at UN – has he used the word "terrorism" yet? No. But he did mention an obscure little youtube video.—
(@dmmcglynn) September 25, 2012
So Obama gives speech that the video didn’t cause the violence in the context that he thinks it did. Nothing about terrorism. “Extremism.”—

For shame, Obama. Shame on you.
Delusional and frightening. Remember this in November.
Obama 2012: Because the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.—

Update: Remember this?
Yet he mentioned it a half a dozen times during his UN address.
