There has been a lot of cyber-press concerning President Obama's religious affiliations and the apparent alliance of the Democrat Party-Poopers and radical Islamists to bring down the America that the Founding Fathers constructed. Most of the assertions of Obama/Democrat spooning with Islamists are initiated by the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic Tea Party bigots.
We at Grandpa John's will discuss this issue with the very same reasoned rationality by which we have become famous.
First, we will contrast the radical Islamists with the Obama/Democrats by exegetical studies of some major practical doctrines of each.
One doctrine commonly used by radical Islamists is termed taqiyya which means deception or dissimulation. Deception, even to the level of denying one's own faith, is allowed when it is convenient for self-protection when among a hostile majority. Taqiyya is allowed in situations of jihad. What matters the most is that one's intentions are good.
In contrast, the Obama/Democrats apply a doctrine called 'Letmebeclear.' This means 'I'm lying like a Mo-Fo.' Lyin' like a Mo-Fo, is allowed when it is convenient for political self-protection when among a generally conservative public. Lyin' like a Mo-Fo is is acceptable when in a tough election or warring against the Constitution. What matters the most is that one's intentions are good.
Another doctrine commonly used by radical Islamists is termed 'abrogation.' This means that when two contradictory holy verses cause confusion, the latter verse abrogates the earlier. One verse may infer that one should be at peace with his neighbor while another infers killing the infidel. This doctrine dovetails with taqiyya in that the pubic preaching of understanding and tolerance is augmented by the private production of I.E.D.'s.
In contrast, the Obama/Democrats apply a doctrine called 'Letmebeclear.' This means 'I'm lying like a Mo-Fo and deny what I said or did in the past.' One statement may infer that individuals or states have rights while another statement or action infers Big Government rights only. This doctrine dovetails with the earlier 'Letmebeclear' in that the public preaching of freedom and tolerance is augmented by the private production of dictatorial proclamation and legislation that tolerate no dissent.
By this exhaustive study, it is easy to see that the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic Tea Party bigots have drawn conclusions of a like-mindedness between the radical Islamists and the Obama/Democrats by constructing a straw camel.
