Christian Journalist: Obama’s Bin Laden Speech ‘Catering to Thugs’ on ‘Arab Street’
May 2, 2011
(ChattahBox Political News)— No matter what, the right-wing haters will always look for an excuse to attack President Obama. The pathological Obama derangement syndrome infecting the Right, oftentimes leads to strained and ridiculous criticisms. This is one of those times. The Christian Broadcast Network’s David Brody was not impressed with Obama’s address to the nation, announcing that 9/11 terrorist Osama bin Laden was cornered and killed in Pakistan. What was his complaint? Obama did not grin and gloat enough. And because Obama did not sufficiently convey that a dead bin Laden is a “joyous occasion,” he was “catering to thugs.” You know, those Muslim thugs on “Arab Street.”
Brody writes, “His speech made no mention of any sort of proud accomplishment and it certainly made no mention of how exciting this moment was for our country. I know President Obama understands that getting Bin Laden doesn’t mean an end to the war on terrorism but how about a smile? How about showing a little joy? How about a word or two saying something about how this is no doubt a happy or joyous occasion for Americans?”
Apparently, because the President of the United States didn’t gloat and jump up and down with joy, he was sympathizing with the Muslim terrorists. Makes sense, right? because we all know Obama is a secret Muslim Kenyan socialist.
“So why did he announce the big news like he was reading the dictionary? You know the answer. It’s because his speech wasn’t so much aimed at Americans. He was being careful of how the “Arab Street” would interpret his remarks. Any hint of gloating or happiness might be rubbing it in the face of some of the crazies in the Arab World and heaven forbid we get them upset! How dare we Americans look like we’re celebrating his death! The travesty of it all!
Give me a break. Isn’t it time to stop catering to thugs?”
Brody also had another beef. Obama didn’t mention President Bush in his speech.
“Still, what strikes me here is that Obama will get the credit for getting bin Laden even though this was a 10-year effort. (By the way, Obama never mentioned President Bush by name last night. Shouldn’t he have done that?) This wasn’t solely Obama who should get the credit.”
The mind reels.
