White House Says That Al Qaeda Is Racist

From Jake Tapper at ABC News:

President Obama, White House: Al Qaeda Is Racist

Jake Tapper

July 13, 2010

In an interview earlier today with the [state owned] South African Broadcasting Corporation to air in a few hours, President Obama disparaged al Qaeda and affiliated groups’ willingness to kill Africans in a manner that White House aides say was an argument that the terrorist groups are racist.

At last, Mr. Obama has found something about Al Qaeda he can speak out against. Maybe he will sic the Justice Department and the rest of the ACLU on them.

Maybe he can even cajole the NAACP into passing a resolution condemning them. (Just kidding, of course. They have bigger fish to fry.)

Speaking about the Uganda bombings, the president said, "What you’ve seen in some of the statements that have been made by these terrorist organizations is that they do not regard African life as valuable in and of itself.  They see it as a potential place where you can carry out ideological battles that kill innocents without regard to long-term consequences for their short-term tactical gains."

Earlier today a senior administration official said the Obama administration believes that Al Shabaab carried out the attack.

Explaining the president’s comment, an administration official said Mr. Obama "references the fact that both U.S. intelligence and past al Qaeda actions make clear that al Qaeda — and the groups like al Shabaab that they inspire — do not value African life. The actions of al Qaeda and the groups that it has inspired show a willingness to sacrifice innocent African life to reach their targets."

This can be seen, the official said, in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, when hundreds of Africans were killed and thousands wounded.

We cannot allow such things to happen. The death of Americans is one thing. But the loss of “innocent African lives” is an entirely different matter. Probably this rises to the level of a hate crime.

After all, unlike the thousands of Americans who have been killed by terrorists over the years, these Africans are blameless.

"Additionally, U.S. intelligence has indicated that al Qaeda leadership specifically targets and recruits black Africans to become suicide bombers because they believe that poor economic and social conditions make them more susceptible to recruitment than Arabs," the official said.

Even though Mr. Obama tells us that Arabs only become terrorists because they are laboring under poor economic and social conditions.

We wonder if US intelligence has ever considered that the rise of Islam in Africa may have something to do with more Africans becoming suicide bombers. (We realize this is probably a crazy notion.)

"Al Qaeda recruits have said that al Qaeda is racist against black members from West Africa because they are only used in lower level operations."

"In short," the official said, "al Qaeda is a racist organization that treats black Africans like cannon fodder and does not value human life."

You know, we never really hated Al Qaeda before. But this really is beyond the pale.

Al Qaeda is keeping the black man down by not giving him higher positions and greater responsibilities within their terrorist organization.

If that isn’t a reason to go to war with them, then what is?

    So the problem with Al Qaeda is not that they kill every non-Muslim that they can…..

    it’s that some of their victims are black.

    I get it now.

    Al Qaeda should hold diversity meetings and mix up the color of their suicide bombers to quell criticism. Otherwise they might end up with a resolution from the NAACP.

    Has there ever been a better example of the old saw “when the only tool you have is a hammer, everthing looks like a nail”.

    Again, this is why I have never wavered that Obamy is just plain stupid. It’s irrelevant whether or not he is good at crossword puzzles or can speak melodiously from a teleprompter or wafted through Harvard.

    Half his brain, at least, is disengaged by his blind ideaology, which can be described in 5 phrases:
    – if you disagree with me, you are racist
    – capitalism is evil
    – white people are evil
    – the US and its political system are evil
    – follow me to nirvana

    Clearly a case for Eric Holder. Affirmative action needed ASAP.

    Join now, men of African descent! Be all that you can be! Al-Qaeda is looking for black men of all colors to join them in their fight for justice against western infidels!

    I wonder what it’s like, to be so unbelievably stupid to keep walking into the sliding glass door when it’s closed all the time. You’d think that they’d figure it out after the 20th, 30th, 1,000th time.

    (Nothing is cruel if it’s funny enough)

  4. canary says:

    Muslim Obama has made it clear he is racist against tea-party goers, biased & pro a muslim world & illegal immigrants, so who is he to call al-Qaeda a racists.

  5. NoNeoCommies says:

    For once I can agree with the White House.
    Still, why don’t they mention the sexism?

  6. Reality Bytes says:

    Don’t Forget Homophobic! Can Ru Paul as our new Antiterrorist Czar be far behind?

  7. wardmama4 says:

    NNC – al-Qaeda doesn’t use females often because their supply of women stupid enough to breed with lying, cheating, drinking and non-burka wearing men is too limited to risk their females desire to commit suicide (and thus ending the pain and suffering of living in 3rd World radical islamic serfdom) to truly important missions.

  8. Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

    Too bad Barry couldn’t find it within himself to express as much concern for our troops killed by that camel jockey bastard at Ft. Hood. What a POS, 2012 can’t get here fast enough!
