Together We Thrive: Tucson and America
The service started with Obama with his chin aimed upward, in his disdain and insolence look. Michelle was next to him looking bored. Stuck in the midst of all these White people. There to give Obama his support on this cross of Whiteness.
Service starts with pro Mexican rhetoric. How many Mexicans were killed?
People cheer it. Were Americans let in?
Michelle smiles through this.
“Poor barrio kid from South Side of Tucson can get an education.”
What the Left?
This is a Diversity Comedy.
Comments at Raw Story reflect the nature of this rally.
Janet Napolitano reads from Isaiah.
Will Hussein read from the Koran?
The World waits.
Eric Holder reads from Corinthians.
A surprise here. I thought Christianity was banished from this tableau. This is its first mini appearance by my count.
Michelle and Barack don’t look happy to be there. Beam us out of here.
After 9/11, his minister preached, “God Damn America.”
Ayers candidate now stands before the country. A long way from a mosque in Indonesia.
Kneels to pray with you today. Like a Muslim.
Obama simply mentioned scripture. Was it something in the Koran?
As Scripture tells us:
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
The rally aspect of this gets worse and worse. The absence of a real Christian minister is part of what led to this rally like atmosphere. The absence of real Christian prayers and hymns. This is an anti-rally against White Christian America. It is showing this is not a Christian country. That is the message.
Obama refers to scripture. He refers to Job. Job is also in the Koran.
Scripture tells us that there is evil in the world, and that terrible things happen for reasons that defy human understanding. In the words of Job, “when I looked for light, then came darkness.” Bad things happen, and we must guard against simple explanations in the aftermath.

Moment of silence
Not a moment of silence but a moment of screaming after Hussein’s words from scripture.
All the Obama references to scripture can be interpreted at least loosely as Koranic.
Even David Gergen on CNN (sin) said it was a jarring ceremony for anyone expecting a traditional memorial service. That it was more a pep rally.
Freeper thread is pretty good.
This Muslim Moment.
There is a progression in religions in this Obama Memorial Service.
Obama delivers the Muslim part which is scripture. This use of scripture symbolizes it contains within it whatever is valid from the past. Islam teaches the previous religions of Christianity and Judaism are garbled. It also teaches that some prior prophets were Muslims. In a sense, one could stretch that to include primitive faiths like Indians as representing that stage.
This whole ceremony was structured and choreographed from a Muslim perspective to show the progression from primitive faith to the Jewish Old Testament to the Christian New Testament to Islam as its apex and modern embodiment. Obama delivers Islam. Notice Holder as black comes closest to Obama, reading from the New Testament.
Napolitano didn’t seem enthused at her role. Maybe she was cued in that this was what it meant and what she was part of.
This was Barack Hussein Obama’s Muslim Memorial service.
