The five-minute blogger

I think I can definitively state President Obama is not a muslin.  Additionally, your insistence that he is a muslin is not helping your credibility.  How many people think Obama is a muslin?  Quite a few, apparently.

In all seriousness, I think “muslim” is somehow a proxy for race.  It’s part and parcel of Obama being a black other, a foreigner, not a “real American.”

The name “Ground Zero Mosque” certainly evokes a lot of emotion.  Better than saying “Mosque and community center  close to the site of the former Twin Towers.”  How far does holy ground extend, anyway?  And are porn shops and strip joints permitted?  In any event, talking about how muslins should be sensitive to the feelings of “Americans” strikes me as more than a little ridiculous.  Undoubtedly Muslims were among the 9/11 victims.  Maybe even Muslims who were Americans.  Maybe even a few muslins.

Sensitivity to bigotry.  It’s the American way.

Speaking of “real Americans,” how exactly are we going to prove citizenship if birthright citizenship is repealed?  The passport is issued after another proof of citizenship has been provided.  For people born in the United States, that proof is often a birth certificate.  Maybe everybody will be required to obtain a certificate of citizenship.  But will birthright citizenship have a grandfather clause?  Will citizenship be contested based on alleged non-citizen status of parents?  What if one of your parents is a muslin?  Will DNA tests be required for alleged citizens who claim citizen fathers?  And is this just a move towards Real ID?

  1. I hate muslins. I’ve hated them since I first encountered them in 8th grade home ec. If it was up to me this country would be muslin-free and we’d all be draped in silk dupioni like God intended. Death to muslins.

    Whenever someone brings up the fact that Obama might be Muslim, my response is always, “So what if he was? I don’t care as long as he gets the country’s shit together.” But I don’t think that’s the exact response they’re looking for.

  2. Well Hitler made his beloved “Aryans” prove their Aryanness before they could do anything … why wouldn’t the US do the same thing if they decide to enact this type of foolishness? Nazis have made up the fabric of the US power structure since just after WW2 via Operation Paperclip where the US decided to “contain” Nazi scientists in the US.

    From Wikipedia (I know, I know):
    “To circumvent President Truman’s anti-Nazi order, and the Allied Potsdam and Yalta agreements, the JIOA worked independently to**** create false employment and political biographies for the scientists. The JIOA also expunged from the public record the scientists’ Nazi Party memberships and régime affiliations. Once “bleached” of their Nazism, the US Government granted the scientists security clearance to work in the United States.*** (my emphasis)”

    I guess being born in a country just isn’t enough to make you a citizen there, but if you’re a Nazi war criminal you get top secret security clearances.
