It’s no wonder that so many believe he actually is Muslim. I do not believe that. He simply embraces the politically correct notion that “other cultures” and other faiths deserve our respect. Always.
Particularly deserving are Arabs and Muslims because of all the dreadful things America has done to them and to other sad sacks.
The politically correct — and Obama is the first truly PC president of the United States — glorify other cultures and belief systems, thinking this is fair and just.
This is naïve.
Naïve: unsophisticated, ingenious, credulous, having or showing a lack of experience, judgment or information.
Naïveté is the perilous core of PC foreign policy, which is Obama’s approach, and it is what makes him an amateur — and very dangerous.
The politically correct glorification of “other cultures” and religions was born in the English-speaking world, primarily America. It spread somewhat to parts of Europe, but the Germans and Dutch have given up on it, and the French never bought into it at all.
People who speak Spanish all over the globe laugh at it, and so do Italians and Greeks. These folks glorify their own cultures, and that’s the natural order of things.
Obama’s initial reactions to the Muslim atrocities in Egypt and Libya included apologies for the anti-Mohammad movie.
He began to backtrack rapidly on the apologies, but apologize he did. He should not have apologized because Americans can make pretty much any movie they want to, which is one of the many things that make America superior to the despotic Muslim world.
Obama thinks we should respect the Muslim world, and be nice. Problem with that is they do not return the sentiment, to state it mildly.
The Muslim world does not respect freedom, other religions, or other ways of looking at things. For a president not to understand that is dangerous.
Lamentably, many Americans are very naïve. Aside from the 9/11 attacks, the nation has lived a long, long time without fear of much of anything. America’s guard is down, and a naïve, amateur president like Obama keeps it down.
Enough with the apologies.
