Charles Krauthammer Slams State Department Apology, Obama Disavows Cairo Apology … Who is in Charge as Embassy’s are Under Attack?
The Incredible Shrinking Foreign Policy President … Where is President Barack Obama? How can the Commander in Chief the President of the United States be so far in the rear on such a foreign policy tragedy? Once again, leading from behind. This is what happens when one continuously apologizes … no one respects it.
The following is the original US State Department press release apology following the attacks of US Embassy’s in Cairo, Egypt. What, the state department is apologizing for anti-Muslim activity in the United States while US Embassy’s are being attacked, what could be considered an act of war? Instead the Obama State Department attacks “Freedom of Speech” and apologizes to Islamists who attacked US Embassy’s. UNREAL.
The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.
Does some one need to tell the state department that the right to free speech is to have the right to say something that is so offensive and vile that it offends others, yet the US Constitution allows one the right to say it? That is the very essence of Freedom of Speech.
Krauthammer Slams Embassy Statement In Egypt
Charles Krathammer on Fox News says that the apology is a disgrace and an embarrassment. He called it a hostage statement. The apology comes on all days is on 9-11? Krauthammer said that there should have been no apology, the State department should have told the protesters to “Go to Hell”. The protesters should apologize for storming a US Embassy.
The Obama administration now disavows Cairo apology. Huh? How was the original statement allowed to be released if it was not backed by the Obama White House? How could such a foreign policy issue become such a convoluted mess? As reported at the Jawa Report, the White House has thrown itself under the bus and disavows the apology. Who is in charge?
The Obama administration is disavowing a statement from its own Cairo embassy that seemed to apologize for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.
“The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,” an administration official told POLITICO.
The U.S. embassy in Cairo put out a statement early Tuesday that apologized for an anti-Muslim film being circulated by an Israeli-American real estate developer.
“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions,” the embassy said in a statement published online.
This comes on the foot heals of Obama and his minions touting his foreign policy expertise at the DNC convention. Because Obama really looks like he is leading as our US Embassy’s are under attack and American diplomats are murdered. As Weasel Zippers states, this really is the “gang that could not shoot straight” and now instead of Americans being forced out of work with inept economic policies, we have Americans murdered in our Embassy.
Rick Warren Tweets: @dancathy just called me. #ChickFilA has already set a world record today … As the Left Shows the Hypocrisy of Their Hate
Rick Warren tweeted that Dan Cathy, the CEO of Chick-Fil-A, called him and said that they had already set a world record toda for food sales and there was still 7 hours to go out in the West. Honestly, it does not surprise me at all. The one’s the I frequented today and passed by were a zoo. There were traffic jams at every location and people standing in line as if waiting to go on an amusement park ride at Disney World. At one location I stopped at today, they had served 10,000 customers. A note to the intolerant LEFT, backlash is a bitch. Today, waiting in line for a Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwich in support of free speech, in November it will be waiting in line to take our country back.
Mike Huckabee is amazed at the outpouring and a victory for ‘We the People”
Christians are allowed freedom of speech as well and many are tired of the Anti-Christian sentiment
and attempted censorship of commerce because they disagreed with someone’s opinion.
As Hot Air opined, Somewhere, a Burger King ad man’s toying with the idea of having “The King” declare himself “100% pro-life.” We might want to ad a pro-second amendment “Red Haired” little girl with pony tails as well.
Not a word about today’s activities has been whispered on Chick-fil-A’s feed even though CFA has been trending on Twitter off and on all day. As noted in the earlier post, the suspicion is that the company’s lying low about what’s happening in order to extricate itself from the front line of the culture war, but I wonder if today’s outpouring will draw some sort of recognition tomorrow. If Dan Cathy’s willing to tout the numbers to Rick Warren, presumably an official acknowledgment and thank you is on the way.
I would have to say that because of such a tremendous outpouring of support today by “We the People”, CFA is going to have to make some sort of announcement. When they do, the numbers are going to be staggering.
What the Left and the Gay community does not understand is your hypocrisy makes people ill. You are the first to cry hate speech and discrimination, yet it is you who spews vile hate and intolerance. Like this moonbat, hate filled Leftist (VIDEO) calling others hateful when he is a perfect example of what hate is all about.
Chick-Filet-A Appreciation Day a Resounding Success … Supporters Come Out in Force of Free Speach & Traditional Marriage
Eat Mor Chikin … You Betcha!!!
For those gay activists that thought they were going to protest Chick-Filet-A for the restaurant owners free speech comments have awoke a sleeping, silent majority. Today was Chick-Filet-A Appreciation Day and let me just say wow, what a resounding success.
Huge crowd across America came out in support of Chick-Filet-A today as supporters of the restaurant voiced their right of free speech with their wallets and presence. Every Chick-Filet-A had patrons in endless lines waiting to order stretching out the doors and around the building. Cars waited in lines that wound around the restaurant, into streets. It was simply amazing.
It used to be that taking a bite of a chicken sandwich just meant you were hungry. Now it has become a symbol of whether you stand for or against same-sex marriage, or – alternately – the right to express your personal views without fear of retaliation.
At Chick-fil-A locations across the country, people voted with their wallets today, coming out to express support for the fast-food chain after CEO Dan Cathy said in an interview that he is a firm backer of traditional marriage.
“I believe what the Bible says (about marriage),” Chauncy Fields told us after wolfing down a breakfast of chicken and biscuits. “So I came out here to support Chick-fil-A and the movement.”
On a personal note, today I passed by five Chick-Filet-A restaurants during the morning hours, lunch time and this evening. OMG, the cars and people were everywhere waiting patiently in line to order their food and show their support for CEO Dan Cathy, Chick-Fil-A, free speech and traditional marriage. I went out for lunch today to go to Chick-Fil-A to show my support and there were so many cars as far as the eye could see wrapped around the building twice and into the adjacent mall parking lot. Needless to say, I had to pass. However, this evening on the way home I stopped at one closer to home and guess what, at 8 pm the line was still just as long as it was during lunch. Many items were actually sold out. The supporters basically were asking the servers, just give me anything you have left, we are here in support of you. A Chick-Fil-A in West Nashville, TN was reported to have closed early because they literally ran out of all food.
Make no mistake about this Gay America and those misguided politicians who attacked an individual for his free speech and called him and his restaurant bigoted. Do you hear yourself? Do you people ever look in the mirror? It isn’t just Gay individuals, liberals, Muslims and PC folks that have a right of free speech, guess what, so do Christians. You don’t get to threaten people for their opinions. But of course there were the cowards that called in bomb threats in a feeble attempt to stop the outpouring of support. Guess what, you failed! To the corrupt politicians, you certainly do not get to prevent individuals from opening businesses in your cities. You have the nerve to call others bigoted and make accusations of discrimination. What is it exactly that you think you are doing?As for Friday’s “kiss-in”, the Lonely Conservative is correct, the crowds will be much less, but look for the liberal MSM to make it appear larger than reality. Does anyone really think that a “kiss-in” is going to change minds? Seriously, I don’t care to see hetero’s PDA in a restaurant, what makes you special!
Maybe one of the best titles of a post of the day comes from The Other McCain, I Love The Smell Of #ChickFilA At Noon. It Smells Like. . .Liberty. Amen Brother!
Remember when individuals professed their love for America?
Please read and listen to the following commentary from Red Skelton. Its a message that many might want to take to heart. Hey Chris Rock, why don’t you watch the following VIDEO and the ‘Pledge of Allegiance’ from Red Skelton. Maybe your disrespectful punk a$$ will learn something about America. The last time I checks Chris Rock made a pretty good living having to suffer being in the United States. What a crying shame that so many who have prospered from the liberties and freedoms of the United States find it so easy to attack her.
“Boys and girls, I have been listening to you recite the Pledge of Allegiance all semester and it appears that it has become monotonous to you or could it be you do not know the meaning of those words. If I may, I would like to recite the Pledge and give to you a definition of the words.
I-—meaning me, an individual, a committee of one.
Pledge—-dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self pity.
Allegiance-—my love and my devotion.
To the Flag—-our standard, Old Glory, a symbol of freedom. Wherever she waves, there is respect because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts freedom is everybody’s job.
Of the United—-that means that we have all come together.
States—-individual communities that have united into 48 great states. 48 individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose, all divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common cause, and that’s love of country.
And to the Republic—-a republic, a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.
For which it stands!
One nation—-meaning, so blessed by God.
Indivisible—-incapable of being divided.
With Liberty—-which is freedom and the right of power to live one’s life without threats or fear or any sort of retaliation.
And justice—-The principle and quality of dealing fairly with others.
For all.—-which means, boys and girls, it’s as much your country as it is mine.”
Red Skelton finishes his pledge with the following wise comment that you know the Left and ACLU would love to accomplish:
Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our nation, and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance “under God.” Wouldn’t it be a pity if someone said, “That’s a prayer” and that would be eliminated from schools, too?
Deranged, Obama Kool-Aid Drinking NC Teacher Tonya Dixon-Neely Suspended With Pay After Telling Kids Not to Criticize the Obamamessiah (Update: Student Hunter Rogers Speaks Out)
The clueless and deranged NC teacher who told students that they could be arrested for criticizing President Barack Obama has been suspended with pay for her comments. Wow, you showed her. You just gave an Obama Kool-aid drinking so-called teacher who is more adept at spreading her liberal, Democrat agenda and love affair for Obama than to actually teach students an early summer vacation with pay. School officials also said there will be an investigation. Really?
Make no mistake about it the teacher, Tonya Dixon-Neely, was only suspended and the school district forced into making a statement because the student had the where with all to record the teachers out of control, deranged, moonbat rant defending Obama and attacking Mitt Romney. Thanks to the Internet and social media, the audio went viral and this hideous attempt of liberal indoctrination was exposed. This is what it has come to in public schools, teacher spreading this political agenda and threatening students that they could be jailed for daring to criticize Obama and express their 1st Amendment Rights to free speech.
A teacher at a Rowan County school has been suspended after getting national attention for a YouTube video that surfaced last week showing her yelling at her students, saying it’s wrong to criticize the president.
In the YouTube video, North Rowan High School teacher Tonya Dixon-Neely and her students were debating several political issues, including a discussion about President Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
The video, which was uploaded on May 14, had more than 178,000 views on YouTube as of Monday afternoon. The story has been picked up by national media outlets, including Fox News and the New York Post. Controversial radio host Rush Limbaugh discussed the issue on his radio show on Monday afternoon as well.
If you missed the initial audio, it can he heard HERE.
The school district was forced to released a statement on Monday regarding the unhinged and what has become all too typical example of bias public school teaching trying to spread a liberal agenda rather than educate students and allowing a free flow of ideas.
“The Rowan-Salisbury School System expects all students and employees to be respectful in the school environment and for all teachers to maintain their professionalism in the classroom. This incident should serve as an education for all teachers to stop and reflect on their interaction with students. Due to personnel and student confidentiality, we cannot discuss the matter publicly.”
Jamie Wearing Fool is quick to point out the bias reporting of the bias suspended teacher. Isn’t it just peachy that the reporting of this story calls Rush Limbaugh the one who’s controversial here, not this illiterate nutcase teacher. Go figure? This is how bias the MSM is, they don’t even realize anymore that are bias. They just can’t help themselves.
Back to the illiterate nutcase teacher. How does anyone allow this teacher back in the classroom? From all accounts this is how the teacher usually acts and conducts herself. It was only until she was recorded and the audio went viral before she was outed. Note to students, it would appear that all will have to record their teachers in order to stop the liberal indoctrination. Another issue arises as well, this teacher totally lost control of the class and herself. How can a social studies teacher who has an inherent bias and liberal agenda act as Obama so likes to say … Fairly? The answer is, she can’t.
This is not the first time we have seen this slobbering love affair and bizarro behavior from our so-called educators. Remember the indoctrination of our youth in school when Obama was elected … Mmm, mmm, mmm … Barack Hussein Obama.
UPDATE I: Student speaks out on Fox News as to what happened in classroom with unhinged teacher. Hear Hunter Rogers in his own words school the bias, liberal agenda driven, Barack Obama teacher sycophant teacher.
“Honestly, at the time I wanted to laugh at her, because I’ve been taught all my life that nobody can take your opinion,” Hunter Rogers said. He said he knew that it takes an actual threat against the president, not just criticism, to be arrested.
Hunter Rogers and his mother Gina spoke to Fox News about the incident and the recording of the argument that later went viral on YouTube.
“(The teacher) doesn’t want to hear anything but what she believes, and … if you disagree, you get berated and put down,” Rogers said. “I just decided to finally get some proof of it.”
Its the end of an era at C-SPAN … 70 year old Brian Lamb, the founder of C-SPAN will step down as chief executive effective April 1, 2012. Lamb is handing over leadership to two co-CEOs, Rob Kennedy and Susan Swain. Brian Lamb will remain chairman of the board, with the new title of executive chairman. It is hard to believe that C-SPAN has been on the air for 33 years. For us political news junkies what would we have done without C-SPAN over the years? Many of us today take C-SPAN, C-SPAN 2 and C-SPAN 3 for granted, but 33 years ago when it all started “We the People” could never see what actually went on in the “People’s” House.
C-SPAN – the original and one and only “Reality” Must See TV
Brian Lamb, who created the revolutionary nonprofit cable television network C-Span in the late 1970s and has been its public face ever since, is handing it over to two lieutenants, Rob Kennedy and Susan Swain.
Effective April 1, they will become the co-chief executives of C-Span and Mr. Lamb will become the executive chairman, formalizing a management change that has been years in the making. Mr. Lamb will continue to host “Q&A,” his Sunday night interview program, and will pursue other interests, like teaching.
The announcement will come on Monday, 33 years to the day that C-Span — short for Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network — came onto cable television, predating CNN and ESPN.
Thank you Brian Lamb for your incredible vision and allowing “We the People” a peak into what is going on in Washington, DC and being able to hold our politicians accountable.
Alamo Heights Defeat San Antonio Edison in Basketball …Chanting USA, USA, USA is Now Considered Racist in the America … What Has Happen to Our Country?
SINCE WHEN IS IT RACIAL TO CHANT USA, USA, USA … WHAT HAPPENED TO AMERICA?
File this one under, WTF has happened to the country that I was born in? How is chanting USA, USA, USA racist? Seriously, we have to apologize for such a chant? This political correctness BS has got to stop. Watch the VIDEO below … if one did not know that it was an actual news story, one would think that it was an SNL skit. BTW, is San Antonio, TX still in the United States?
KSAT reported that a racial incident took place following a high school basketball game between Alamo Heights and San Antonio Edison. The racial incident, the Alamo Heights fans chanted USA, USA, USA. HUH??? Because one team has a predominate amount of Hispanics on their team, it is considered racism to chant USA. They are actually apologizing for the incident and demanding the students apologize. APOLOGIZE FOR WHAT!!! We still do have a US Constitution and a First Amendment of Free Speech, correct? I am so sick of people crying racism, where there is none. How in the hell is chanting USA racism? If anyone actually thinks that, it might be time for you to leave …
But it was just after the trophy presentation when the coach was not proud of the chant coming from Alamo Heights fans.
“USA, USA, USA,” they chanted.
San Antonio Independent School District officials took the chant as a racial insult to a school with all minority players from a school with mostly white ones.
On the KSAT 12 Defenders Facebook page, Santos Villarreal’s post reads “this has to stop.”
SAISD Spokeswoman Leslie Price heard about the incident after it had happened.
“This is very disrespectful to our students,” Price said.
She said the district is glad the coach put a stop to the chant immediately and hopes Alamo Heights addresses it quickly.
“It is surprising and it’s disappointing to hear that anyone would be out there making those kind of remarks,” Price said.
Edison students who attended Saturday’s game were shocked when they heard the chant. Some thought the fans of the victors should have been better behaved.
How dare all those racists chant USA, USA, USA during “Miracle on Ice” at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, NY. This is how sadly low our country has become. I will say this, if any one thinks that chanting USA is bad or shameful … LEAVE, LEAVE RIGHT NOW!!! Are the kids from the predominantly Hispanic high school not attending school and living in the USA? Nuff said.
CROWD CHANTS USA, USA, USA DURING MIRACLE ON ICE
Just curious, what’s next not playing the United States National Anthem before sporting events, is that racist? How about America the Beautiful, is that racist? What about having an American flag in the gym, is that considered racist? How about God Bless America, is that racist too? Oh, but I bet chanting viva la Mexico would have been perfectly OK. Or wearing Hispanic heritage clothing on Cinco de Mayo while making other take off their USA clothes is ok as well.
Alamo Heights Superintendent Dr. Kevin Brown also apologized for the chant.
“We just hope that people know that that’s not who we are and we’re not going to let it happen again,” Brown said.
Alamo Heights has apologized to SAISD and the students identified will also have to apologize and have been banned from the state title games.
“We think that you have to earn a right to be there and that’s not a reflection of our school district,” Brown said.
I have one thing to say to those who were so offended … USA, USA, USA!!!
It’s a start, but none of us should get a warm fuzzy until a stake is put through the heart of SOPA and PIPA.
The Internet can claim a victory, but do not get out the champagne and party favors just yet. As reported at The Hill, House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) said early Saturday that Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) promised him the House will not vote on the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) unless there is consensus on the bill.
“While I remain concerned about Senate action on the Protect IP Act, I am confident that flawed legislation will not be taken up by this House,” Issa said in a statement. “Majority Leader Cantor has assured me that we will continue to work to address outstanding concerns and work to build consensus prior to any anti-piracy legislation coming before the House for a vote.”
The announcement comes just hours after Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas), SOPA’s sponsor, made a major concession to the bill’s critics by agreeing to drop a controversial provision that would have required Internet service providers to block infringing websites.
However, Issa said that even without the site-blocking provision, the bill is “fundamentally flawed.”
All should watch the following VIDEO from the Cynical Brit … makes a lot of sense and should scare the Hell out of you!
Six Republican Senators have come forward to ask Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to postpone the vote on PIPA; however, Independent socialist Senator has responded that the vote should go ahead as planned.
Late today came word that six Republican senators have asked Majority Leader Harry Reid to postpone a vote on Pro IP, also known as PIPA. The senators wrote: “Prior to committee action, some members expressed substantive concerns about the bill, and there was a commitment to resolve them prior to floor consideration.”
For those of you who do not know what SOPA and PIPA is, please familiarize yourself. It impacts all that use the Internet from bloggers to Facebook, from Google to YouTube. These two bills are supposed to prevent on-line piracy; however, like ever poorly written bill, its the law of unintended circumstances that all that currently use the Internet can already see. Do we really want Congress to pass another bill into law where it has to be passed so that we can see whats in it? Bad legislation is bad legislation. It should cause pause for all, no matter if they are on the LEFT, RIGHT or CENTER, when a government looks to restrict Freedom of Speech under the guise of a piracy bill. This is one issue where we can all come together and “JUST SAY NO” to SOPA and PIPA!
Did Congress actually think they were going to slip such a bill that would affect so many under the cloak of darkness? Shame on all of you who backed, supported and sponsored this bill. Many of which who are in complete retreat due to the backlash of “We the People”.
Reddit and maybe Wikipedia was supposed to go “dark” for 12 hours on January 18 to protest SOPA. Maybe they will still do so to protest PIPA. Imagine if YouTube, Facebook and Google went dark to protest as well? Maybe that is what it will take for law makers to realize that writing BS bills will not be tolerated.
Tis the Season … Santa Claus Dressed as Skeleton, Nailed to a Cross Removed from Public Christmas Display
Some things are beyond words. So a Nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus Christ is offensive, but a skeleton dressed as Santa Claus nailed to a cross is not! Is this how low we have become in the US in our efforts to promote PC?
The War on Christmas continues as it is far game to offend Christianity. So only certain types of offensive free speech are allowed? Needless to say, an offended member of the community took down the offensive display.
The annual Leesburg dispute over holiday displays is getting as predictable as the rush of shoppers on Black Friday.
A skeleton, dressed as Santa Claus, nailed to a cross, was torn down by an enraged woman outside of the Loudoun County Courthouse.
The display was legally there, with the consent of the county, officials said.
Mary Czarnecki, a county resident, wasn’t having it. She, piece by piece and bone by bone, took “Skele-Claus” off the cross and laid him on the courthouse’s lawn.
“You don’t think this is offensive?”
The individual, Jeff Heflin, actually applied for approval with the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors to put up his anti-Christmas Season display. He stated that his Christmas display “depicts how society’s materialistic obsessions and addictions are killing the season’s peace, love, joy and kindness.” Really?
I wonder what Church Jeff Heflin belongs to?
Oh, but get this … open minded words from an Atheist. This hypoctit says that people should keep an open mind about the skeleton dressed Santa. Really? WHERE IS THE ATHEISTS OPEN MIND WHEN IT COMES TO NATIVITY SCENES? ISN’T THIS WHAT HAS CAUSED THE POLITICAL CORRECTNESS PROBLEM IN AMERICA … NON-BELIEVERS LACK OF AN OPEN MIND AND SUING CHRIST OUT OF CHRISTMAS!!!
The leader of the Northern Virginia Atheists, Rick Wingrove, says tearing down the display was illegal, and people should keep an open mind.
“Offense is in the eye of the beholder. We’re offended by the religious displays on government property. We think it’s constitutionally improper,” Wingrove said.
The Occupy protesters continue to prove they are nothing like the Tea Party.
A South Carolina man who was an Occupy SC sympathizer has been arrested for Facebook threats he made against Governor Nikki Haley. Nathan Shafer was arrested for threatening to kill Haley as he posted, “I hope someone murders you before I do.” How ignorant could one be? However, when you think that you an Occupy protest sympathizer, you expect to get away with everything and have no consequences for your actions. Isn’t that what the movement has been about from the start?
A South Carolina man is accused of threatening the life of Gov. Nikki Haley on Facebook, but he claims he was only making a point about free speech.
When 26-year-old Nathan Shafer heard about the arrests of 19 Occupy Columbia members outside the State House last Wednesday, he did what lots of people do when they get angry — he vented about it on the Internet. He saw Gov. Haley’s Facebook post about the arrests and Haley’s comment that she “appreciate[s] freedom of speech,” and that’s when authorities say Shafer crossed the line.
“I hope someone murders you before I do,” Shafer said he commented on the post. “How’s that for freedom of speech?”
BRILLIANT IDIOT! I guess this Occupy brain surgeon never learned that making threats to kill some one was protected speech. But wait, this Occupy sympathizer thinks that this has been blown out of proprtion.Really? For any individual to call for death threats against anyone, no matter what political party, should be deemed reasonable and credible. Should we ignore the obvious and have another situation occur like in the case of the Tuscan massacre and the near death of Arizona House Rep Gabby Giffords?
At issue, according to the court, is whether a “reasonable person” would view the statement in question as a genuine threat. In Shafer’s case, that remains to be seen.
Sorry, I do not care whether such a threat was made against Barack Obama or Nikki Haley, such acts should never be tolerated. In this day and age how can anyone really determine whether a “reasonable person” would view the statement in question as a genuine threat. Because the threat is coming for an “unreasonable person.” Allow this crap to continue and it will never stop. We are supposed to be a nation of laws, not a nation where anarchy rules. Sorry, but the US Constitution was never intended to protect smarmy SOB cowards from hiding behind their keyboards making death threats.
At some point a message has to be sent to the keyboard cowards, that there are consequences to your death threat actions.
