Are Obama Bumper Stickers Inciting Radical Islamist Violence?

Posted: September 17, 2012 at 7:45 am   /   by

Ahhh, the Obama Democrats.  The people who really care, right?  The compassionate ones.  The ones most sensitive to the feelings of others.  The ones who want to avoid offense to any minority culture.  It’s no wonder they are condemning that 14-minute goofball YouTube video trailer that they claim started the Middle East attacks on our embassies.

Who knew that the robust, new-era Obama/Clinton Middle East policy, with all its deference, patience, and understanding, could be upset by one nut case with a video camera?  All those apologies, and all that bowing from the ankles, destroyed by one insensitive Egyptian living in California.  Astounding.

Well, given what’s happened, here’s my question for the Obama campaign:

Considering the reverence that the radical Islamist mobs are still showing for Osama Bin Laden, is it really a good idea to offend them and inflame their hatred even further with Obama campaign bumper stickers gloating over the death of Bin Laden?

Is all that Democrat compassion, sensitivity, and deference somehow “on hold” during the campaign?  Didn’t Obama say no one should “spike the football” over the killing of Bin Laden?

Shouldn’t Obama issue his own fatwah against the coarsely insensitive campaign materials being issued and sold in his name?  (See above.)  Shouldn’t repentent Democrats be rushing to their cars right now, brandishing razor blades and fingernails, to peel off those offensive bumper stickers?

Come on, Democrats, don’t keep apologizing for one stupid video clip made by someone else.  Take some action yourself to show how much you care about the feelings of those radical Islamists!  You have your reputation to protect, no?
