Remarks by the President at Memorial Service at Fort Hood
“This is a time of war.”
Then it’s time to name the enemy.
“Yet these Americans did not die on a foreign field of battle. They were killed here, on American soil, in the heart of this great state and the heart of this great American community. This is the fact that makes the tragedy even more painful, even more incomprehensible.”
There’s nothing the least bit incomprehensible about a jihadist murdering Americans. And it’s liberals like Obama who give them the entrée they need.
“Their life's work is our security, and the freedom that we all too often take for granted.”
Speak for yourself.
“Neither this country -- nor the values upon which we were founded -- could exist without men and women like these 13 Americans.”
Values which Obama vehemently opposes.
“It may be hard to comprehend the twisted logic that led to this tragedy.”
The logic is quite lucid, given the Islamic premise.
“But this much we do know -- no faith justifies these murderous and craven acts.”
To the contrary, we know that Islam is a faith which specifically and habitually justifies these murderous and craven acts.
“No just and loving God looks upon them with favor.”
True. But Allah is not a just or loving God.
“For what he has done, we know that the killer will be met with justice -- in this world, and the next.”
Really? Does Obama believe in hell? Does he believe in the afterlife at all?
“In Afghanistan and Pakistan, the same extremists who killed nearly 3,000 Americans continue to endanger America, our allies, and innocent Afghans and Pakistanis.”
“Extremists?” Once again, he refuses to name the enemy. Did Churchill or FDR simply refer to Nazis as “extremists”? Did Truman or Eisenhower simply refer to Communists as “extremists”?
“As we face these challenges, the stories of those at Fort Hood reaffirm the core values that we are fighting for, and the strength that we must draw upon.”
Except that Obama is fighting against our core values.
“In an age of selfishness, they embody responsibility.”
Selfishness…as in the Obama’s personal lifestyle, you mean?
“In an era of division, they call upon us to come together.”
Of course, Obama is nothing if not divisive.
“In a time of cynicism, they remind us of who we are as Americans.”
Yes, we’re American and you’re anti-American.
“We are a nation of laws whose commitment to justice is so enduring that we would treat a gunman and give him due process, just as surely as we will see that he pays for his crimes.”
If we will surely see that he pays for his crimes, then isn’t due process just an empty formality (not that I object)?
“We're a nation that guarantees the freedom to worship as one chooses.”
At present, we’re a nation that guarantees the freedom of worshipful Muslims to murder American soldiers while we crack down on Christian expression.
“And instead of claiming God for our side, we remember Lincoln’s words, and always pray to be on the side of God.”
What God does Obama pray to?
“And we know that Americans will always be found on the side of liberty and equality.”
Unless you’re a liberal Democrat, in which case you’re on the side of tyranny.
“That's who we are as a people.”
Spoken by an anti-American president who slanders his country whenever he travels abroad.
“They are man and woman; white, black, and brown; of all faiths and all stations.”
Of all faiths–like Major Nidal Malik Hasan.
“So we say goodbye to those who now belong to eternity.”
What does that actually mean to Obama?
“We press ahead in pursuit of the peace that guided their service.
The pursuit of peace–or appeasement?
“May God bless the memory of those that we have lost. And may God bless the United States of America.”
Which God would that be?
