Obama: ‘Future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,’ dwells on video instead of terrorism

That unnamed zealot? President Obama.

That’s right.

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.

From the text of the speech via The New York Times:

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

And Twitter users are rightly outraged.

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.


For shame, Obama. Shame on you.

Delusional and frightening. Remember this in November.

Update: Remember this?

Yet he mentioned it a half a dozen times during his UN address.

    that can mean most anything said against islam. therefore, Jesus is the Alpha & the Omega. He said I am the way, the truth, and the life. no one goes to Abba but through Jesus

    Wow. At this point I can only assume Obama is tired of being President and is actively trying to lose the election.

    • Hiraghm

      He’s even failing at that :(

    • EastValleyConservative

      No, it’s much worse. He believes he has it in the bag. That’s what should worry every American.

      • QueenOfScott

        I think Obama is very obviously bowing to the muslims – right in our face. I think we are all f*cked.

        Without the MSM he would not stand a chance … we must expose their lies to everyone we know who still believes in the MSM .. we can do this!

  • Hiraghm

    The future MUST belong to those who reject the prophet of Islam; Islam is of the past.
    And I don’t see where that conditional is anywhere in the 1st Amendment.

  • J. Cox

    But,we will give government funding to those who mock Christianity…oh the hypocrisy..it hurts.

      my thoughts, exactly! there won’t be one reprimand of some nea-funded “artist” going on an anti-Christian rant or some hollywood film using Jesus Christ as a cuss word or portraying Christians as some bloodthirsty mob

      The future must not belong to someone stupid enough to say “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

      We know Muslims believe anything that doesn’t acknowledge Mohammed as THE Prophet is slander. This is a big effing deal Mr President.

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    To be fair, he does also speak against desecrating the image of Christ — I’m not sure if there’s anything significant to made by the distinction of slandering “The Prophet” and desecrating an image — but he sure as hell has been quiet about P- Christ exhibit being up again, huh?

    And yeah, just adhering to another faith passively “blasphemes” their founder, doesn’t it?

  • J.N. Ashby

    The future does belong to those that slander the prophet of Islam. That’s the whole point of free speech. You’re dumb beliefs/ideas are subject to scrutiny. DEAL WITH IT.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    Honestly. Who — if they have been paying attention — could possibly be surprised?

    The plain meaning of his statement is that while the propher of islam must be protected, to get the gullible hoi paloi to swallow it, those other things must be weakly condemned.

    Those in disagreement (…and you can expect the Obamanation’s followers to lead here…) obviously cannot comprehend the plain meaning of English — or they chose obtuseness, and pretend inability to comprehend.

    If you must constantly lie and hide your true goals, even from those who in ignorance support you, how worthwhile could your goals actually be?

  • http://twitter.com/DidYouHear___ Lex

    Your credibiity goes right out the window when you take a sentence out of a paragraph because it gives you something that will infuriate many. Go get a job at MSNBC.

    • Brian Jones

      Are you complaining that this sentence was taken out of context? There are many, I hope, who believe as I do that there is no context in which this comment is acceptable.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Lol, nice try. The whole paragraph is right up there, and I commented on the entire contents myself. At the very least, it makes him a weaseling hypocrite.

      At worst — well — I dunno, do Twitchy rules allow the use of the word “treason” or is that too inflammatory?

  • Shawn Smith

    Maybe I’m wrong, but in my opinion, the future must not belong to those who seek to smother such basic human rights as freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

    (By the way, getting stuff handed to you without working for it is not, in any philosophically defensible sense, a basic right.)

    • http://www.facebook.com/johnny.banco.7 Johnny Banco

      Guess which un-Christian, basic-right-depriving 1%er said the following: “For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.”

      Boy, that Apostle Paul sure was being mean and unloving when said something so insensitive, burdensome & unfair, wasn’t he?

      • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

        It’s only the truth. If you don’t work, you don’t eat. Plain and simple.

  • Brian Jones

    I find this unbelievable. But it happened. Has he finally said something that even liberal Democrat elites can’t stomach? Aren’t they concerned with freedom of speech, *especially* freedom to insult religion/religious?

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      No. They cower in fear of Islam. They’re also ok with double standards. Without them, they’d have no standards at all.

    • http://www.facebook.com/brett.mcmicken Brett McMicken

      the only part they cannot stomach is the inclusion of Christianity in that speech….they are okay with hurling dung on Christians

  • Brian Jones

    …and it doesn’t matter that he gave lip service to denouncing the criticism/mockery of Christ. It is NOT HIS JOB to criticize the practice of protected speech.

    I’m sooooo dizzy from all the SPIN from the WH.

  • gracepmc

    So what then? The future must belong to those who murder in the name of the prophet of Islam. Or to put it in the context of the country this man is supposed to represent The future must belong to those who murder Americans in the name of the prophet of Islam and not to the Americans who exercise their freedom of speech, including that against the prophet of Islam. Who is this man?

  • NWFL Conservative

    “Future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,”……but now that false prophet Jesus, denigrate Him all you like. And from someone who did 4 combat tours in the ME and has seen this “religion of peace” in action, islam is not a religion, it is a hate filled death cult to a fake god and a false prophet

    It sounds to me like he’s on the verge of coming out of the closet and revealing he really IS A MUSLIME. Of course we have known that all along

    • AlienJazzCat

      You fought their extremists, and for that I salute you.. But was there no one there worth defending?

      • NWFL Conservative

        Sure there were, but that still does not change my mind about my feelings about that hate filled death cult they call a religion.

  • EastValleyConservative

    Why those on the left refuse to open their eyes on this one is odd. If ANYONE on the right had said this, riots would ensue. But leftist idiots are clueless to the dangers of Islam, therefore will defend THEIR “right” to kill freedom while oddly denouncing Christianity as the violent, repressive religion. Yep-1984.

    When will this president stand up for the US? Jeez, can he not grow a pair??

  • Adela Wagner

    I urge everyone to search “The Project” Muslim Brotherhood blueprint for cultural jihad. Included in the documents seized during the raid of Nada’s Swiss villa
    was a 14-page plan written in Arabic and dated December 1, 1982, which
    outlines a 12-point strategy to “establish an Islamic government on earth”. You can read about it online or you can watch a special about it on Dish channel 212, Wed and Thurs nights (26th and 27th) at 8pm. This will show how their plan is indeed coming together, worldwide and in the US.

    • http://www.facebook.com/walker.bennett.5 Walker Bennett

      Yea, and after you watch that look into the attack on the USS Liberty.

      • http://www.facebook.com/johnny.banco.7 Johnny Banco

        What point are you trying to make? Unless you are positing that the Israelis desire to take over & rule the world like the Islamofascists do, your mention of the USS Liberty here is inappropriate and diversionary.

        Don’t take what I said as a defense of what happened in 1967, either – the US has continuously mishandled its response to that incident, in one manner by not properly standing up for our troops who died/suffered that day…

        • http://www.facebook.com/walker.bennett.5 Walker Bennett

          Well, I put a fairly lengthy comment on here explaining my point but it seems it has been deleted. We now live in a country where you censorship of the truth is just an accepted part of life. Propaganda is allowed, as long as it’s the right kind. I guess that just about ends my participation on message boards. I thought this one would be different, I should have known better.

  • Dio Heerai

    No the future belongs to those who SLAUGHTER our ambassadors , right Obama

  • Derelictus

    Freedom of speech is paramount to any free society. That INCLUDES saying stuff you don’t want to hear. All Obama had to say to stand up for his country’s values was something along the lines of, “America’s Constitution enshrines true and complete Freedom of Expression. There is no compromise.” The End. But nope, he took the appeasing coward’s way out.

  • Streetiebird

    “…given the power of faith in our lives, and the passion that religious differences can inflame, the strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression, it is more speech — the voices of tolerance that rally against bigotry and blasphemy, and lift up the values of understanding and mutual respect.”
    Americans, he said, “have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their view.”
    And he said pointedly that “there is no speech that justifies mindless violence.”
    “There are no words that excuse the killing of innocents,” Mr. Obama said. “There is no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. There is no slander that provides an excuse for people to burn a restaurant in Lebanon, or destroy a school in Tunis, or cause death and destruction in Pakistan.”

  • http://www.robjonesforpresident.com/ Rob Jones

    Actually the future must not belong to a president that can’t remember we have a little thing called the first amendment that gives us the right to say any damned thing we want about “the prophet of Islam”.

    If he feels strongly about it, hey, I’ll chip in for the plane ticket so he can move to a place unfettered by that hindrance known as the Bill of Rights.

    People seem pretty comfortable bashing Muslims as a group. I thought we were suppose to leave the wholesale hate to the libs. Why is it that a country that was founded on freedom of religion has so much contempt for Muslims? Is it possible that America’s propaganda spouting, agenda driven media has helped form your opinion? There are over a billion Muslims in the world, so the law of averages dictates that there is gonna be a fair number of nut jobs amongst them. The vast majority of violent crime in America is commited by black people, but I’m guessing most of you wouldn’t be comfortable making a blanket statement like “black people are violent criminals” yet you have no problem saying all sorts of nasty things about muslims. In America we have 40+ members of congress and the senate that hold dual citizenship with Israel. What if we had even ONE politician that held dual citizenship with an Arab country? The media would be screaming from the mountain tops and people would be outraged in no time. Think about where you get your information before you just blindly believe it. Generally, the only people that try to keep the truth hidden are the ones benefitting from the lies.

    Obama hypocrisy re: terrorism “squeaky wheel gets the oil” while Christianity gets a dried up tube of KY jelly. Ass-kissing vs. Ass trouncing. no change in the weather..

  • http://www.facebook.com/johnny.banco.7 Johnny Banco

    Obama, as usual, has NO idea of the meaning/significance of what he is saying – just how does he define “slander” regarding Mohammed, anyway?

    In his NOT-humble opinion, is it slanderous to mention that Islam regards Christians who believe in the Trinity as deceived polytheists, bound for Hell if they cling to that belief? Would he say it’s slanderous to mock Muslims who would say that Jews are jealous of them? Would he say it’s slanderous to bring up that Mohammed stated in the Koran it is sometimes acceptable for husbands to physically assault their wives when they believe they are lying to them, or that husbands are told their wives are as fields unto them, to be plowed as they wish?

    Where does Obama believe he gets the ‘right’ to expect others to live by his, or others’, definition? What an intolerant, inarticulate, thoughtless, and dictatorial moron our President is – I HATE anti-intellectual, anti-free speech Nazis like Obama, and I am PROUD that I do! :)

      What’s most pathetic is that Obama and other anti-freedom “liberals” really don’t comprehend the hell they are dragging us all into by throwing away free speech so readily. (The same applies to Emmanuel & Menino’s threats to block Chick-Fil-A.)

    He said the PROFIT of Islam. Leftwingwackos politically profit a lot from Islam and will not tolerate you “slandering” that.

  • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

    This is good evidence right there that he IS in fact Muslim! Sorry, but it’s my freedom of speech to call it like it is about Islam.
    Also, it seemed like he was comparing the slandering of Christianity and Judaism to the “slandering” of Islam. The two topics have nothing in common! People are just telling the truth about Islam!

    The cultural mindset has dramatically changed from 20 years ago when the Satanic Verses was published. Then, people saw radical Islamic fundamentalists for what they were . . . violent and intolerant. Today the media makes excuses for it and our President leads the way.
