As Twitchy reported, a shoeless President Obama made his first visit to a U.S. mosque today in Baltimore, where he traced the history of Islam in American and unveiled his strategy to confront the “inexcusable political rhetoric” directed against American Muslims: add some Muslim characters to TV shows that aren’t about tracking down Muslim terrorists.

The president closed by wishing God’s peace upon the audience before putting his shoes back on and heading back to the White House. Reporter Andrew Beatty, however, learned firsthand one of the dangers of the religion of peace.

That’s un-American.

It serves us right for being bitter clingers to our footwear.

    And…? At least you still have your head.

    • Jesse-Messy Hammer

      …Only because he “thinks like Obama” that the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution says that the supreme law of the land is Sharia in certain places.

      True, but what of the brain inside?

      Oh, wait, Liberal. Sorry…

    BTW, THAT is not the ONLY thing young Muslims learn early!

    Obama went to a mosque? What happened, were Americans killed by terrorists just recently and I haven’t heard about it?

    …Peace when Islam disappears from Earth… BUCK OFAMA !

      Mix Fascism with Religion and you get pure Hell.

      Throw in lady-parts mutilation and you can have it.

    Isn’t this just part of the ceremony?

  • twfuller

    The number 1 “One” danger of Islam is to believe it is a religion of peace. Just remember – a world void of Islam would be filled with Judeo-Christianity. But a world void of Judeo-Christianity would be filled with Islam. Look to Europe for proof of that. And that Islam, by the way, is not at all peaceful.

    • Joe DeCaro

      Islam literally means “submission”.

    • Suzyqpie

      “We have to make it clear that we can’t allow everyone in, because if we allow everyone
      in, Europe is finished. If you are rich and attractive to others, you also have to be strong because if not, they will take away what you have worked for and you will be poor, too,” quote Vikor Orban, PM of Hungary, regarding the current Muslim, aka, Syrian refugees, invasion of Europe.
      You. Will. Be. Poor, Too. Muslims are international welfare predators. That little Muslim kid dead on a beach in Turkey, yes very sad, he was dead because of the revenue generation scheme-decisions made by his Muslims parents.

      It is the religion on piece. Take a piece of dis and take a piece of dat.

  • thedeplorableblonde

    Label me a xenophobic Islamaphobe, but I want to see one primary document of a Muslim slave in early America. As we say in genealogy: Prove it, or STFU.

    • jwz

      I’m still trying to figure out how they traveled halfway across the country until they got to North Dakota to build a mosque. Slaves were here in the 1600s. North Dakota wasn’t a state until the 1880s, but Islam has been an integral part of America since its inception. They just didn’t bother worshipping for the first 250 years they were here.

      • thedeplorableblonde

        I’d love for Obama, the historian, to explain why there are no Islamic based religions in the American south or the Caribbean.

        • Suzyqpie

          Ok Ok Ok you and jwz are not buying Obama’s mythology. Facts are inconvenient when there is a Muslim whitewash propaganda job to be preformed….paraphrase Andy McCarthy, whitewashing the disasterous Islamic present by creating a glorious Islamic past.

        • Lamontyoubigdummy

          Or why these 7th century male barbarians widows and orphans demand entry to Western Europe, and America rather than Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea.

          Gee, it’s seems Homer’s Odyssey got translated into Arabic/ Farsi/ Pashtu and a some high ranking monster in ISIS understood the idea of a “Trojan Horse”.

          By all means. Let’s take in “refugees”.

      • Arttie the Deplorable

        They were brought over by the vikings.

    • Askwatch

      For leftists, an assertion is its own proof.

    • Lamontyoubigdummy

      I said it on a thread a few days ago. Arabs took more African slaves than Brits and America combined.

      From ISIS to Taliban, the Quran doesn’t just allow slavery. It demands it.

    • Petrucio14

      The African slave traders were predominantly Muslim. Muslims in Africa as elsewhere were prohibited from selling their ‘brothers’ into slavery.

      • David

        You are correct.

    • Guy Dudebreaux

      The last country to abolish slavery did it in 1981. The islamic country of Mauritania. 120 years after the USA. Although they abolished slavery in 1981, they didn’t make it illegal intil 2007.
      The one before that, Oman 1970.
      U.A.E. 1964
      Yemen and Saudi Arabia 1962.

      • PNWShan

        They still practice slavery today, just not as openly.

    • David

      There were no work stoppages several times a day to fulfill prayer duties.

    • Frogmouth


      They were slaves. Property. Less than human, Nobody asked them their name, their religion or where they were from.

      The slavers who captured, bought or traded for them, and sold them to European slavers, were Muslim. Odds are better than average that at least a portion of the slaves would have been Muslims, too.

    Your shoes were “moved?”

    And you couldn’t find them?

    Funny, I’d call that “stolen.” Did you check the bags of the other journalists? Shady bunch.

    • MoxieLouise1

      They will be returned shortly, after the bomb has been installed.

        “They will be returned shortly, after the b0mb CLOCK has been installed.”

          TY 🙂

        • Lamontyoubigdummy

          Muslims have a weird deal with shoes.

          Perhaps they’ll throw them at Obama like they did with Bush.

  • JohnFLob

    Maybe Andrew can play for the White Sox.

  • ricoliv

    Your shoes are safe when left outside the mosque provided they are not a high-end brand. As with everything else about Obama, his footwear is likely to be bargain-basement seconds.

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    Keep in mind, while a hundred FBI agents and dozens of USSS guys/gals were busy background checking everyone associated with that particular Mosque so president putt-putt could visit…The DHS has no idea how many Tashfeens’ & Farooks’ have overstayed their Visas

  • Guy Dudebreaux

    I now know why mosques smell like dirty smelly feet.

  • constitutionminded

    I personally am sick and tired of this idiot promoting his islam over Americans. If he loves them that much then leave, go away and live in a muslim country. You are a disgrace to the rest of us. You are not what American is.

  • Deceptitech

    I will say it as often and to as many as I can until people understand these maniacs. Islam is not a religion of peace. It is a religion of Piece. Pieces of you scattered around a bomb blast because you are an infidel.

    Someone said that there are only 10% of muslims that are radical. The problem is they use percentages, not numbers. 10% is 120,000,000 radicals. Those are the admitted radicals. Ask most muslims, and they will agree with these radicals. They will not stop until the world is converted, or every one of them is pushing up virgins.

    • Seriously?

      During WWII only 7% of Germans were members of the Nazi Party. It doesn’t take a large minority of fanatics to impose their rule over far greater numbers

      • setnaffa

        Everyone signed a loyalty oath. Everyone was in the Party. Only 7% got paid for it.

  • Cali Broheim

    Once you join Islam, yous can’t leave. Chaz Palmenteiri

  • Seriously?

    Odd. I have never lost my shoes at a Buddhist temple.

    • Factory_Hag

      I almost did! We all trooped off to the Wat (Cambodian word for Temple) in Lowell for the Bun one September. I went to help my friend with her little kiddies so she could enjoy the ceremony more, and when we all came out, I thought I would be riding back to Lawrence in my socks, but we found a pair of little kiddies playing with them. Guess they liked the look of my old footwear.

      • Seriously?

        I think we can just count that one as kids being kids. 🙂

  • san rafael blue

    Well, It’s a good thing you weren’t asked to remove your undergarments, right?
    The worst part would be arriving home and realizing you are now wearing somebody elses BVD’s!!!

  • wharfrat

    Muslims would do well in their own country, but here in the U.S. they think they are going to change us and force us to be more like them,we are not,they have Obama to protect them for a few months but We The People decide what we will do with our lives,the Muslims are told how to treat women,when to pray, who they pray to is still unknown,they are not ready for prime time like the idiot President says,I don’t want to listen to or watch a T.V. show about them and their insane way of life, if they want the American people to treat them with respect they need to act like us, this is our country after all!!.

  • DeplorableNOMA

    What, exactly, is the history of Islam in America?

    • Hashtag pundit

      I was wondering myself. Besides bombings, hijackings, honor killings, shootings, “workplace violence”, etc.

  • Jerry Shelton

    He can visit a mosque in Baltimore, but skips a church in Charleston.

    Anyone have a problem guess what religion he really supports

  • whatev…✓ yo’self.

    Not Reported — Both of Andrew Beatty’s shoes were flung at President Obama, during his speech.

  • Rick Lumus

    Does a prayer breakfast in a mosque include bacon and sausage? Just askin’.

  • ernst

    “Inexcusable political rhetoric” might also be called the truth about terrorism and the voice of history.
