Obama and the Muslim Problem

A while back, a friend who’s convinced that Barack Obama is a Muslim sent me an email in which he informed me that followers of Islam must refrain from wearing jewelry during Ramadan, which runs through August this year, and that Obama hasn’t worn his watch or his wedding ring since the start of the holiday.

I wrote back to say that I don’t know where or when Muslims are allowed to wear jewelry and that I tend not to notice jewelry, no matter who is or isn’t wearing it, unless it’s a guy in a poker game wearing a pinky ring. In which case, I cash in and go home.

The fact is, I wouldn’t care if Obama was a Muslim if he weren’t such an arrogant, lazy, snotty, lying socialist. So far as I can tell, he doesn’t prostrate himself and pray to Mecca five times a day, and I can’t quite picture him turning up his nose at a bacon cheeseburger. It’s all the things he does do that make him such a pain in the butt.

For instance, it’s his constantly laying the blame on George Bush, a man who’s grown in stature since leaving the White House by not carping about his successor. It’s his surrounding himself in the past with such creeps as Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel and Tony Rezko, and in the present with the likes of Van Jones, Harry Reid, Valerie Jarrett, Nancy Pelosi, Richard Trumka and George Soros. Road kill attracts a better crowd.

He’s a guy who demonizes Republicans and the Tea Party movement for the state of the economy while he conducts campaign fund-raisers, treats Paul McCartney and Tom Hanks to expensive dinners on our dime and spends more time on the links than Phil Mickelson. For good measure, lest we haven’t caught on to his overall contempt for the American taxpayer, he sends the family off on a sight-seeing tour in Africa that runs us $800,000.

The guy squanders trillions of dollars, sending the nation ever deeper into debt, and then not only decides the solution is to raise taxes and squander more, but gets a cheap laugh at a time when the actual unemployment or under-employment rate is hovering over 15%, by saying, “I guess shovel-ready wasn’t as shovel-ready as we expected.” Not exactly Henny Youngman, but apparently amusing enough to get a guffaw from the fellow sitting next to him at the time, his job czar, G.E.’s Jeffrey Immelt. I guess when Obama brays against corporate jet owners, he doesn’t have to look too far to find one.

Something else that makes Obama so loathsome are his constant attacks on “millionaires and billionaires.” There’s no denying that class and race warfare are straight out of every playbook ever devised by Marx, Lenin, Alinsky or Cloward and Piven, but it’s particularly disgusting when offered up by a shmuck who hosts birthday parties for himself with seats going for almost $40,000-a-pop, when he gets Wall Street to cough up tens of millions for his re-election and when his closest friend, the aforementioned Mr. Immelt, runs a company that made $15 billion last year and didn’t pay a nickel in income tax!

Finally, one of the reasons my friend is convinced that Obama is a Muslim, aside from his spirited defense of the Ground Zero Mosque, is the way he has lavished praise on the religion of Allah, but never the religions of Abraham or Jesus Christ, along with the speech he delivered in Cairo, Egypt, back in June, 2009. With a perfectly straight face, he actually said, “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”

Obama has also insisted that the Muslims played a major role in the founding of America, which led some of us to wonder how it is that Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Adams and Hamilton, never once mentioned the nation’s enormous debt to Allah.

While taking every opportunity to condemn Americans who merely oppose his loony fiscal policies or ObamaCare, this Chicago cockroach brown-noses those who burn Bibles, desecrate churches, murder Christians and vow to exterminate Jews.

Let’s face it, if Islam had its way, we’d all either be dead or spending most of our time bowing to Mecca.

Does all of this mean that Obama is a Muslim? No way. Does it mean that after he loses next year’s election, his next gig could be as spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Way!

    I started reading Bernie’s website after watching him so many times on Bill O’Reilly’s Factor. Now the first column I check for on this website is Burt Prelutsky. I very much enjoy your insights and biting humor. Don’t give the libs an inch.

    I agree with your article on how many ways Obama has beaten down the office of the presidency. But disagree with you concerning the muslim issue. What a man or woman truly believes in his or her heart concerning God affects virtually everything he or she does. It is obvious to me he is a muslim.

  • Morior Invictus

    Bert have you noticed the absence of obamas wife, kids and dog during the past month? I like your article and believe obuma is a muslim. He’s many other things that I won’t put in print.

  • Glen Stambaugh

    Missed your keen wit and perspective…glad you’re back!

  • Burt Prelutsky

    Thank you all. A technical glitch has kept me off of Bernie’s site for a couple of weeks. What a nice welcome back!

    Regards, Burt

    Burt, Wow! Spot on! One of the reasons I love your articles (though I don’t comment much) is the fact that you throw “political correctness” out the window in the name of ACTUAL correctness. Do you have enough personal security measures in place? With this crazy in the White House, one cannot be too sure.

    Well done and well said.

    Pretty scary to think that the biggest threat to our own country is BO. 2012 can’t come soon enough ‘Sarah Palin’; maybe then we can all sleep a little better at night.

    Good Golly!!! I loved your article and the way you said it!!!
