Obama Marks 9/11 With Call For Tolerance

From an endlessly toadying Associated Press:

Obama commemorates 9/11 with appeal for tolerance

By Erica Werner, Associated Press Writer Sat Sep 11, 2010

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama appealed to an unsettled nation Saturday to honor the memory of the Sept. 11 attacks by hewing to the values of diversity and tolerance. "We will not sacrifice the liberties we cherish or hunker down behind walls of suspicion and mistrust," the president declared

"As Americans we are not — and never will be — at war with Islam," the president said. "It was not a religion that attacked us that September day — it was al-Qaida, a sorry band of men which perverts religion." …

Obama spoke forcefully.

"The highest honor we can pay those we lost, indeed our greatest weapon in this ongoing war, is to do what our adversaries fear the most," the president said. "To stay true to who we are, as Americans; to renew our sense of common purpose; to say that we define the character of our country, and we will not let the acts of some small band of murderers who slaughter the innocent and cower in caves distort who we are."

Obama did not mention the New York City mosque, or the Florida pastor, but his message was clear. "We champion the rights of every American, including the right to worship as one chooses…”

Unless, of course, their way of worshiping their God includes burning the text of some of another religion. Or even decrying homosexuality. Or praying on public property. Or…

[A]s service members and civilians from many faiths do just steps from here, at the very spot where the terrorists struck this building," he said. The Pentagon houses a chapel where people of different religions can pray.

Where probably even Major Nidal Hasan at one time ‘worshipped.’

Obama also has sought to cast Sept. 11 as a day of service to others, and he participated himself by traveling to the Ronald H. Brown Middle School in northeast Washington to take part in Armed Services YMCA: Operation Kid Comfort. At the school, Obama helped paint a multipurpose room, and chatted with volunteers making quilts for children of deployed troops decorated with pictures of servicemembers…

Mr. Obama wants to turn every day, from 9/11 to Christmas into some kind of ‘community organizer day.’ Why is that?

The White House said Obama began the day by privately observing a moment of silence at 8:46, the time when the first plane crashed into the World Trade Center.

We thought Mr. Obama was a tremendously devout Christian.

Why didn’t he pray?

    Barry…..you can be tolerant of our enemies.
    Hope you don’t mind if ” I ” get ready for the street to street fight that is coming.
    We have you to thank for it. (blanket head)

    • Mithrandir says:

      Whatever message of tolerance and peace you have for the American people…..it is 1000x more needed in Muslim countries…save your breath liberals!


    • jobeth says:

      For such a hateful, murderous and UNTOLERANT lot, muslims are certainly sensitive little devils.

      And damn it…THAT offends ME!

  2. Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

    it was al-Qaida, a sorry band of men which perverts religion.

    Of course you affirmative action POS, it was Osama bin Laden and his sorry band of men. F. YOU!

  3. jimreport says:

    My tolerance was all used up by his thinking that I need lectured on tolerance.

    Whats with these dumbocrat public servants and their constant lectures?

    I’ll stick with unwavering intolerance of those who chant and plot for death to America. Included in that group is Imam Barry and everyone associated with him.

  4. tranquil.night says:

    We’ve already dishonored our fallen brothers and sisters enough as a result of putting you in charge, Imam O-Blah-Blah. Your actions are a disgrace to their memory every single day, but listening to you today – well, I agree with Jim. It took about every last bit of tolerance I have left.

    And I regularly debate lunatics who’ve been convinced by Hollywood that God is a hyper-evolved super alien(s) whom imparted consciousness to early humanity. That it’s written in the stars that they are coming back for us when we’ve broken the light-speed barrier and are ready to join the inter-galactic community! Then there’s the “radical” sect that disagree on whether consciousness even CAN transcend the speed of light, and this group basically belives just that: God is some sentient being that just discovered particle acceleration and crashed the mechanisms of the universe because while maintaining mental consciousness of choice he was expanded to all points in space-time, including beginning and end – where at the end he decided the universe was Good and re-instigated the Big Bang.

    How’s that for Freedom of Ridiculous Belief? It’s amusing as hell so long as they don’t get so incensed by logic as to want to blow my cities up with a Death Ray (which doesn’t get you your own private planet in the cosmos by the way). Made and tolerated in America, bucko.

    Hell, the only Looney Toons with whom we Americans don’t like to engage and have fun (often at their expense) are the one’s who actually hurt people. The rest get a reality television show and the lives of a jihadist in heaven!

    “Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil.” Thomas Mann

    Obama is a willing, supportive, pro-active agent for evil who makes Neville Chamberlain look palatable.

      “I shall stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” –Barack Obama, Audacity of Hope.

      I have never seen so much white-hate, as what was in his to books.

  6. Rusty Shackleford says:

    Again, he tells everyone exactly who he is and exactly what he stands for.

    He can’t help it. He’s so impressed by his own mental abilities he thinks no one will get it.

    But in reality, he’s been “pants’ed” and he just doesn’t know it.

  7. proreason says:

    Is it an alliance with Islam to dismantle the west and then fight over the spoils?

    Or is it simply cowardice?

    Probably both.

  8. wardmama4 says:

    Notice how it is only _____(fill in the blank for the particular story – white, Christian, CEO, rich, Tea Party) who are demanded to be tolerant. All the other so called ‘victim’ groups are allowed to claim false threats, smear, demean and yes even kill the others and are not even called ‘bad’ or ‘wrong’ and certainly not exhorted to be tolerant.

    This type of talk is what lead to a ’93 bombing and the ’00 ship bombing to turn into 9/11/01 – Can you imagine what OBL has been cooking up in the Saudi madressas? Backed by all of the US’s stupidly sent oil and ‘foreign aid to a ally‘ monies? The islamic world is laughing at the EU for it’s idiotic immigration plans and is salivating at the idea that The Won and his corrupt Congress will enact a similar open borders plan here in America. I truly do fear what the next attack will be like.

    Oh btw – Poverty is on the way to hitting an all time high – How’s that redistributing going for you? How’s all that hopenchange going? Seems to me the stupid entitlement masses and ACORN fraudsters only elected the exact same politics as usual – just on warp speed.

      It isn’t about tolerance.

      It’s about them contolling you.

      “The islamic world is laughing at the EU for it’s idiotic immigration plans”

      Confirmed: Immigration Hostility Widespread in U.S. and 5 Largest European Countries – http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/immigration-hostility-widespread-in-us-and-5-largest-european-countries-102610749.html

      “Majorities in four of the countries and pluralities in the other two believe that immigration makes it harder to find new jobs. Majorities in three countries and over 40% in the other three believe it has a bad effect on education. Majorities in four of the countries and 40% or more in the other two think it has a bad effect on health care services.”

      And that’s just the numbers they use to make everyone sound like bigots. Yesterday, I picked my Dad up from visiting London & Stockholm. He says when it comes to Illegal Immigration in particular, specifically Moose-limbs.. it’s awfully close to the magic 70/30 Country Class vs Ruling Class phenomenon we’re seeing here.

      So I’m assuming yesterday’s lecture was also directed at them. Way to go with telling other nations what to do Barry! It’s not like that’s what you say has been the biggest historic problem for the nation you lead or anything. Or was this just another one of your campaign speeches for the coming UN Secretary General term?

  9. Tater Salad says:

    OK Mr. President, with that said lets now do this! Lets all have a Pig Roast at ground zero then. This brings new meaning to having “Pigs in a Blanket” doesn’t it?


    • Liberals Demise says:

      Tater…..Blackjack never did this but it makes for good lore and even better ideas.
      Btw…..great idea on the GZ pig pickin’.

    “We champion the rights of every American, including the right to worship as one chooses…”

    Or unless the ‘Great Lecturer’ wants to “preach” AT us in a religious school like Georgetown U.”
    Then you have to hide your God behind a painted piece of plywood painted black.

    “The monogram IHS, whose letters spell out the name of Jesus, and which normally perches above the stage in Gaston Hall where the president spoke, was covered over with what appeared to be black wood during the address.”

    Remember that? But that just goes to show you how tolerant HE is. Muslim idiot!


  11. xdannyh says:

    Is there anyone left on the planet who believes that this Quisling apologizer is not a muslim sympathiser of full fledged Muslim. Has the head of the muslim state/religion ever apologized for the mass murder of 1000’s innocents by members of the faith or is it a state? ..
    This man, this POTUS, is vainglorious mountebank is enough to turn a persons stomach. Yes the time for honoring horrific killings is a time for honoring diversity and freedom of religion. Way to go BHO, a certifiable POS. This traitor is well versed in Orwellian “newspeak” : War is Peace …… Love is Hate or turn it around. At any rate his tenure will be noted as a time of “doubleplusungood” for the nation.

  12. JohnMG says:

    ….”The highest honor we can pay those we lost, indeed our greatest weapon in this ongoing war, is to do what our adversaries fear the most,”…….

    I’m a child of the late 50’s and early 60’s. I remember the drills in school we took in case of nuclear attack. Which spawned a joke that I recalled later on when I was in the Marines. It might also apply to the quote from Obama’s speech as to what we, as Americans, have been advised to do, to wit:
    In case of muslim attack, stand with feet approximately shoulder-width apart, bend over at the waist, stick your head as far as possible between your legs, and kiss your ass goodbye!

    Is that what we’re supposed to do, Barry? I know that’s what you’d like everyone else to do, you chicken-shit asshole. But then, you’re either trasn-gendered or you never had a pair to begin with.

    What a jerk. He takes a perfect opportunity to pay tribute to this country as a nation of heroes and patriots, and instead, rolls over and plays dead for the worthless vermin celebrating “their” day of victory over the “Great Satan”.

    Heretofor and henceforth I will always in my mind see the acronym POTUS and Obama in the same sentence as……..POtuS.

    Read the capital letters only!!

    Emotions by their very nature draw like to like. If someone shows hatred towards you, it is perfectly natural for you to show hate to them. You could almost call it a reflex. Well, for the last 50+ years we have been fighting our natural tendencies and showing these people tolerance, trying to get them to talk peace with Isreal, trying to promote cooperation and the easing of religious tensions. And after all that effort, they continue to fire back with hate and the threatened destruction of our very way of life. They refuse to denounce the hardliners because really they all want the same thing from us. They want us to die.

    Obama and the administration are the same old record, just with the volume turned up to 11. However, his marxist ideals added to his islamocentric stance on anything religious OR political have begun to speed up the erosion of our country as we knew it. A day of “SERVICE”? How about a day commemorating the loss of 3000+ people murdered by an intolerant theocratic society that seeks the destruction of our people and our way of life. How about a day remembering innocent people jumping out of buildings because they had to make the choice between death from a fall and death by burning alive. How about a day to mourn those lost from this life because they dared to breathe without worshipping the same way that some crazy extremist thinks they should. How about a day to remember that we dropped the ball via tolerance and political correctness and it cost thousands of lives and continues to put every American life at risk. SERVICE? We need to serve the memory of those lost by fighting our wars to win, and tolerating NOTHING that goes against our real American ideals. Freedom… Liberty… Justice… and Self Determination.

    The Blamer and Chief can kiss my bloody ass!!!

    Tolerance for thee but not for me.
