The Final Insult To Daniel Pearl

Via our commenter kathie comes this remark by President Obama about the execution and beheading of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.


"Obviously, the loss of Daniel Pearl was one of those moments that captured the world's imagination because it reminded us of how valuable a free press is."

What? Pearl's murder didn't capture my imagination. It enraged me. What a fool our President is. Pearl had his head cut off by none other than Khalid Sheikh Mohammed because Pearl's father was a Jew. The bastards that cut his head off video taped it all and used it as propaganda by releasing it to the public. And our President described it as a moment "that captured the world's imagination because it reminded us of how valuable a free press is".

This president is not only clueless but his demagoguery is is long removed from reality. Perhaps that is why he wants to give KSM a trial in the United States criminal courts....to capture the world's imagination.

Nah, he's "the smartest man in the world."

"It reminded us of how valuable a free press is".

Then he told the press, in so many words, to get the fuck out of his office as he wasn't 'taking any questions'.

Hahahahahahaha!! The pissant whores just got screwed by the man they've been propping up for the last 2 years, 16 months.

Doubt Obama knows that. Considering his hostility towards Israel, one wonders what he would say about the matter if he did.

kathie:

Not only did Obama make that statement, he made it with Daniel's young son, who had never met his Father, and Daniel's wife standing by his side. When I saw the pictures of Daniel being executed as an American Jew, I saw with my own eyes for the first time the barbaric people were who flew our planes filled with passengers into our buildings and the utter lack of human conscience they embodied. To this day I feel sick and Obama says that the event captured the worlds imagination. It is an unthinkable comment from the "leader" of the free world.

jim m:

You have to remember that to obama people have no meaning except as members of a group. So Daniel Pearl lost his life? Obama says so what? It's just one person. What is important is the group. What does that person mean as a member of some group and what effect on the group does that one person have?

Obama is a community organizer. He deals with the motivation and influencing of groups. Individuals can be replaced. What concerns him is how can he use a group to gain personal advantage.

When he looks at Pearl he sees him as a member of a group. His death is not a tragedy. Obama does not see a son or a husband. He sees a journalist, a Jew. Pearl is not a person to obama he is merely a placeholder for some group that obama wants to influence.

People aren't real to obama. That's why he can throw them under the bus so easily.

Yeah, a free press is valueable Hussein,. But only when it espouses your beliefs.

G.:

The man is a moron. We all know that. I'm trying to figure out why Jews still love Democrats. Can't figure it out. I mean these are the same fascist bastards that will turn on them like a pack of dogs one day. Do you think their hatred of Israel and Jews will stop at Israel's borders? This is the same party that fought AGAINST civil rights, started the KKK, formed lynch mobs, and passed Jim Crow laws. WHAT part of this do YOU not understand? What they did to one race they will gladly do to another. They are off the wall certifiably Nucking Futs.

Sorry -ranting slightly off topic.

Jim Addison:

He's dissociated, all right! He's "dissed" America. He disabused us of any hope, disappointment then turned to dismay which fermented into disdain and now festers into disgust.

Every time I think he is as low as he can go, he slithers to new depths.

Weegie:

Uh.. Mr. President, he was not murdered because he was a journalist, but because he was a Jew and an American.

I cannot fathom how a president could get such a thing so godawfully wrong. WTF is wrong with him?

Hank:

And this is why Obama avoids press conferences and generally avoids answering questions from reporters.

He's not that bright and is remarkably detached from reality.

JLawson:

"Captured the world's imagination."

You say that like it's a GOOD thing, Mr. TOTUS.

Captured our ATTENTION? Certainly.

But generally, when you capture someone's imagination it's considered to be a positive thing. And somehow, sawing off someone's head is NOT something I consider to be a positive action.

You'd think a friggin' lawyer would pay more attention to the actual words he uses...

Tammy:

Someone should tie President Obama in a chair with his eyes forced open and make him watch video footage of every beheading that's been broadcast. I've seen exactly 3. It was the most horrific, blood curdling thing I've ever watched. I forced myself to watch so I would know what kind of beasts these people are.

I started watching one Tammy and it was so repulsive I could not watch. I wanted to jump thru the screen and eradicate the vermin just like 911 seeing all that scum dancing in the streets in the mideast called for an instant nuclear strike!!

It's simple, they view Republicans as the party of Gentiles.
