I have been criticized in the past for referring to President Barack Hussein Obama by his full name, including his middle name “Hussein.” For example, in comment # 10, by Joseph Cotto, in response to “Wide Left” that Blogcritics was kind enough to publish on January 25, 2012, I was castigated for continued reference to his middle name.
I am by no means the first or only person to be criticized for using Barack Hussein Obama’s full name. In October, 2008, Lee County (FL) Sheriff Mike Scott received criticism for using his full name. Scott said, “I simply stated his name. Why would I regret calling somebody by his middle name? To me, I’m perceiving, I’m hearing, a huge, huge double standard.” Also, at a rally in February, 2008, conservative radio talk-show host Bill Cunningham “repeatedly referred to [Sen. Barack] Obama as Barack Hussein Obama — at least three times.” BTW, in this same article, Media Matters said, “This is not the first time Cunningham has smeared Obama and referred to him as ‘Barack Hussein Obama’.” I guess it’s permissible for Media Matters to conclude that Cunningham smeared Obama.
Obama announced on March 29, 2012, that he would hold a fund-raiser event at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI, on April 18.
Well, guess who, when speaking in Dearborn, MI, referenced his middle name? None other than Barack Hussein Obama himself. Obama, during his Dearborn speech, said, “When you decide to support a candidate named Barack Hussein Obama, you know the odds are not necessarily in your favor.”
Is it now permissible for me to refer to his middle name? Was I just avant-garde at Blogcritics by referring to it? Or can I not use it since I am not Muslim? Is that the same “logic” used when blacks say they cannot possibly be racist?
Yes, that is the same Dearborn, MI, that, when Muslims threw stones (and other objects) at Christians on June 20, 2012, at the Arab Festival the Dearborn police did not even try to stop them. A small group of Christians attended the festival, attempting to share their faith. They did not preach or hand out pamphlets. The Christians stood silently as Muslims threw objects at them. Many Muslims shouted, “Allahu Akbar” (God is greater). The Dearborn police blamed the Christian group for the incident.
Despite Muslims throwing objects and saying things like, “Let’s fu*k them up” and “Let’s kick their a*s”, police arrested no one. The police, in fact, did nothing to protect the Christians or to stop the Muslim-initiated violence.
And, yes, that is the same Dearborn, MI, that held an all-girl prom at Hamtramck High School so Muslim girls could attend a prom.
And, yes, this is the same Muslim faith that Obama has assured us is peaceful and that a few extremists have hijacked the faith. But, the Qu’ran says (48:29), ”Mohammed is God’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.” I guess Obama (and George Walker Bush as well) missed that passage. Further, here is just one example of what the “peaceful” religion has done recently: Muslim jihad on Christians. And here is a little item that just may interest Barack HUSSEIN Obama: Islam means “submit to the teachings of Islam or die by the sword.” Peaceful, huh?
So, was Obama smearing himself? Was Obama’s reference to his middle name, quite common among Muslims, just an accident, a coincidence that occurred in the city with the largest Muslim population in this country? I don’t think so, but it’s your call.
But that’s just my opinion.
