Muslim extremists hate our freedom
ANYONE above the age of reason knew karma would slap the president upside the head for his childish taunt to critics of his foreign policy, "Ask Osama bin Laden."
Now his critics can say "ask Chris Stevens," the ambassador to Libya, who died after Muslim protesters stormed the consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
The administration decided to bomb Libya as part of an effort to oust Moammar Gadhafi from power.
The blowback from supporting people you don't know is an ambassador dead in Benghazi.
The attack - and one on the embassy in Cairo - was how Muslim protesters celebrated the 11th anniversary of 9/11. Their excuse was a movie, made by someone in the United States, that offended them.
After Muslim protesters attacked the embassy in Cairo, embassy officials tweeted, "We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims."
Later, the president apologized for the apology and said neither he nor Secretary of State Hillary Clinton authorized the statement.
This reminded me of the tape at the beginning of every "Mission: Impossible" TV show that included the line, "As always, should any member of your team be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow all knowledge of your actions."
Pardon me, but I want a president of the United States who will stand up to defend my God-given rights of free speech and freedom of worship.
That's his job. He is the leader of the free world.
But this president is not up to the job. It is not incompetence. It is a basic misunderstanding of the truth, justice and liberty on which this nation stands.
"We reject the denigration of any religion - including Islam," the president said on Saturday.
Taxpayers funded "Piss Art," which showed the holiest symbol of the Christian religion - the crucifix - in a urine-filled urinal.
When Christians complained, they received snooty lectures on separation of church and state from liberals who saw no irony in a state-sponsored attack on a religion as crossing that line of separation.
Obama should have told the truth about himself and his fellow liberals: "We embrace the denigration of any religion - excluding Islam."
On Sunday, retired game show host Chuck Woolery needled Obama's friends in Hollywood over this double standard.
"No matter how egregious this film is, where is Hollywood defending the right to produce it and air it?" Woolery asked.
In the name of free speech, I have to tolerate the burning of the American flag, the God-hates-fags protests at military funerals, access to online porn at public libraries and a whole host of things I do not like on TV.
I defend the right to offend me because I realize that there is a give and take that comes with living in freedom.
Trey Parker of "South Park" fame debuted the musical "The Book of Mormon" on Broadway. Mormons took it in stride.
Change the name to Muslim and all hell would break loose.
No one has the right to not be offended. The American government - which we own and do not belong to - exists to stand up for our rights.
This regime condemns their use.
The one true religion of America, as Lincoln said, is freedom. And that is what really, truly bothers these protesters who use Islam to attack us.
They want a totalitarian government and they will install one in the name of Allah - or Karl Marx - or Adolf Hitler - or whoever else is handy.
The fact that they hate freedom is something our current president just does not understand, nor does he appreciate the love of freedom among Americans.
The blowback from President Obama's ignorance should be fast and furious on Nov. 6.
