You quote Todd Fitchette who said, "the Boy Scouts (an avowed Christian organization)." While the Boy Scout Oath affirms one's "duty to God", the Boy Scout organization is not a Christian organization. Scouts of all faiths (including Islam) are encouraged to be faithful in their religion of choice and to earn a Scouting award sponsored by their religion.

In an interview last week with the Washington Post's Sally Quinn, DAISY KHAN lamented: "When will Muslims be accepted as plain old Americans?" Teacher please let me answer Daisy Khan's question..please please please .. thank you .. Daisy..the answer to your question is ..NEVER ! NEVER ! NEVER !.. Muslims will never be accepted as plain old Americans or Australians or British or Dutch or Indian or or any other country’s COOL PEOPLE .. Why ? because blood always flows where muslims go.. in this day and age TOO and RIGHT from the time islam was cooked up to be choked down people's throats by hook or by crook.. mostly crooked. HAVE YOU READ THE KORAN DAISY KHAN ? YOU LOOK LIKE AN EDUCATED LADY BUT ARE YOU REALLY ? LOGIC IS THE CORNER STONE OF EDUCATION. EDUCATION DOES NOT MEAN RECITATION. RECITATION IS THE LITERAL TRANSLATION OF THE WORD KORAN. EDUCATION MEANS LOGICAL THINKING FOR SELF. WHAT DO YOU DAISY KHAN SEE IN THE KORAN WHICH ALL OF US ALSO HAVE READ AND ARE READING AND LOGICALLY DUSTBINING ? WHERE DO YOU SEE LOGIC IN THE KORAN ? YOU DAISY KHAN ARE SCARED OF ADMITTING THE KORAN IS NONSENSE BECAUSE IT SANCTIONS YOUR MURDER IF YOU QUESTION IT . YOU ARE PETRIFIED TO LEAVE ISLAM DAISY KHAN . YOU ARE
SCARED FOR YOUR LIFE SO YOU ARGUE FOR IT . WERE YOU BORN IN ISLAM DAISY KHAN OR DID YOU FALL INTO IT ? BEING BORN INTO ISLAM IS JUST VERY BAD KARMA BUT TO BE EDUCATED AND ACTUALLY READ ABOUT YOUR MISERABLE AND HORRIBLE LEADER AND YET STAY IN ISLAM IS AN INSULT TO YOUR INTELLIGENCE. ISLAM HAS AN AGENDA OF HATE. SHOW ME ONE GOOD VERSE ABOUT ANY ..ABSOLUTELY ANY OTHER FAITH IN YOUR EVIL ISLAMIC TEXTS AND WE'LL STOP RIGHT HERE. HALF SENTENCES DO NOT COUNT LIKE PEACE ON EARTH WHICH IS HALF THE SENTENCE OF PEACE ON EARTH WHEN THE WHOLE WORLD IS MUSLIM. THESE HALF SENTENCES ARE LIES. DAISY KHAN YOU DO KNOW WHAT LIES ARE DON'T YOU ? DAISY KHAN WHY DON'T YOU GET OUT OF THE CULT OF ISLAM AND TRY SOME OTHER LIFESTYLE LIKE PEACEFUL HINDUISM AND BUDDHISM OR BE AN ATHEIST ? IF YOU DO LEAVE ISLAM DAISY KHAN PLEASE REST ASSURED THAT YOUR PARANOID AND 1400 YEARS DEAD LEADER IS NOT GOING TO COME AFTER YOU WITH A CLEAVER AND EVEN IF HE DID JUST ABOUT ANY COP ON ANY STREET IN THIS BEAUTIFUL WIDE ISLAM-FREE WORLD WOULD JUST SHOOT HIM DEAD IN HIS TRACKS AND SAVE YOU . YOU KNOW WHY DAISY KHAN YOUR MO BOY WOULD HAVE TO BE SHOT ? BECAUSE YOUR MO BOY IS A CLASSIC CASE OF A MAD MAN . CERTIFIED STUPID AND EVIL TO THE CORE. YOU CAN’T MAKE EVIL THIS BAD UP. YOUR MO-BOY WAS PURE EVIL. AND HIS EVEN EVILER INVENTION ALAHH. A 1400 YEAR OLD FILTHY IMAGINATION STILL FEEDING SIMPLE DESERT PEOPLE TO BECOME MAD. . ENDANGERING EVRY NON MUSLIM LIFE IN TODAY’S COMPLEX SOCIETIES ALL OVER THE PLANET . WE CAN’T HAVE A DECENT MEAL OR HOUR LONG LAZY CHATS WITHOUT THE EVIL OF/FROM MECCA CREEPING IN AND SPOILING THE MOMENT. DAISY KHAN WHY DON’T YOU GET YOUR RAUF BOY OUT OF ISLAM TOO ? WHY NOT ? WOULD HE KILL YOU EVEN FOR THINKING THAT ? WHY ? I’LL TELL YOU .BECAUSE IT’S WRITTEN IN THE DIRTY KORAN. THAT’S WHY !!! WANT MORE ? TELL ME SOME MORE LIES DAISY KHAN.. TELL ME SOME MORE LIES.. ”The refusal of the Western elite class to protect their nations from jihadist infiltration is the biggest betrayal in history.”

Selwyn Duke is absolutely correct to portray and define Obama as an America-hater. This is common in the Univeristy/academia indoctrinated worldview and departure from it is apostasy from this fanatical religion.

With that mindset comes its corrolary: The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Thus we have explanation for his empathy with radical Islam.

Before critics attempt to castigate me, prepare yourselves for explanations about why he appointed terrorist sympathizer Eric Holder as our top-cop? Why, on his first day in office, did he vow to close Gitmo? Why he and Holder are doing their utmost to jam their middle finger into the behinds of all Americans by granting terrorist animals like KSM rights belonging ONLY to US citizens and then "fisting" us further for wanting to try them in New York?

I do not believe that BHO is a Muslim any more than I believe that he is a Chistian. For substance, please re-read Selwyn Duke's article until you get it.

Brother, and I call you brother, for this is the most accurate, truthful, and intelligent evaluation of Obama that I have ever read...your thoughts represent a crystalization of concepts that exactly fit this elected entity. Professional psychiatrist have nailed Obama as an extreme narcissist...very pathological in extent.
My contention is that the electorate have fallen under the hypnotic, politically correct wand of propaganda salesman, who have done an excellent job of identifying all those emotions that were ripe for manipulation....and they fell for every single one of them. Obama is a "rock star" championing the cause of the minority...this is the clothes he wore pre-election, and it seems no one wanted to look any deeper than this. Under this frock of pretense was this: Obama's mother was a die hard, athiestic, critical philosophy thinker socialist. Her parents were communist leaning and friendly, and sent her to a Marxist teaching high school. She married two communist leaning Muslims in a row, being "knocked up" by the first one and married three months into her pregnacy. Both divorced and abandoned her with children. Under these two Muslim fathers, Obama was heavily indoctrinated into the Muslim religion...attended mosque, read from the Koran, and was documented as being a Muslim himself. If we have common sense to believe that parents impart and teach many things to their children...it would only follow that Obama has lived up to these teachings. His educational desires and yearnings led him to seek extreme left wing professors. His eventual place of abode, being South Chicago, is filled with radical black Muslims, black Panthers, and to crown the point...someone had to advise him that in order to "seek the Presidency", you must cloth yourself in a form of "Christianity". What did he do? He chose a church that was so near much of the radical Muslim teachings...anti-white, anti-US, anti-Semitic to the extent of GDing from the pulpit the very core of American society, termed liberation theology. From this choice, he was free to cross back and forth from extreme support of Islamic endeavors...ie the mosque at ground zero, ignoring Christian traditional celebrations, etc. to the sponsorship of sending an imam on a "fund raising, good will" tour of the middle east, and yet, could deny the right of a well known Christian leader to pray and give devotion to the intelligence community. This is only a few examples out of many. One psychiatrist has said...do not listen to his words, but watch his actions. Actions speak louder than words. As we watch his eggs being hatched, he mainly is looking out for "number one". The Arizona situation is a prime example...he is counting votes and doesn't give a damn who or what is coming across the border..he sees only votes. More than that, never in the history of this nation has any seated President ever taken a State to the United Nations for violating human rights...which they haven't, and have only acted to protect their citizens....but he has. From everything I can see coming from this present administration...you can term it anything that you like...liberation theology, political correctness, or what not...the policies of this leader point to one simple sentence or phrase...he is a sleeper Muslim, Marxist socialist, with a strong possiblity of having all the ear marks of a communist. Maybe he spent too much time with Marshal Parks...or absorbed too much from his Muslim ancestors. One thing for sure...he doesn't seem to connect, doesn't seem to understand or read from the same page as the average American citizen. God Help us All.

What a pathetic load of crap! This is moronic even by your usual low standards,Selwyn.
There you go again,making idiotic comparisons of Obama with Hitler and Nietzsche. Well,intelligent people can see through your patently asinine use of rumor,innuendo and guilt by association here,unlike simpletons like Phil France.
Well, Hitler was horrible,but Nietzsche was not evil,just a weirdo.
And I'm sick of the way conservatives like you are always whining about that ridiculous straw man "moral relativism", and accusing any one who does not share your rigid and simplistic views of ethics of immoral and wicked.
Frankly,I couldn't care less what religion Obama follows,or if he follows any religion at all.He wasn't elected to be America's religious leader,as if we needed on at all, but our PRESIDENT.
I would however, be very concerned about a president who was a narrow-minded,intolerant,eslf-righteous and ignorant fundamentalist Christian, which is a definite risk for America in the wakew of the enormous backlash against Obama. That's the last thing this truobled nation needs.

Robert Berger

What a load of crap! This is pathetic even by your usual low satandards,Selwyn.
There you go again,making idiotic comparisons between Obama and Hitler,using any excuse,no matter how false and fliomsy to demonize him.
Obama doesn't appear to be a Muslim at all.There's not one shred of evidence that he is.So what if his father came from a Muslim background? He was never a devout one anyway and later became an atheist.
And reports that Obama was indoctrinated in a Madrassah in Jakarta where he grew up have been shown to be false.He went to a regular Indonesian elementary school,in fact.
Frankly,I don't care what religion Obama follows,or whether he follows any religion at all.He wasn't elected to be America's religious leader,as if we even needed one,but our PRESIDENT.You're just rehashing the same old lies about Obama that so many conservatives have swallowed blindly.
And please don't give me that tired old garbage about
Obama being a "moral relativist". That's just a convenient label that conservatives like you use in a knee-jerk manner to foist on any one who desn't share your rigid and dogmatic conservative views.
I repeat;there's no such thing as moral relativism.It's just a straw man invented by conservatives.
But of course, conservative simpletons like Phil France
fawn over your every inane remark. How pathetic!

Dan

To those of you who believe in your religions. STFU, You're going to heaven, remember?

All I want to say is, I'm just thankful George Bush is gone.

:D

jbailey

I pray so, Dan, and I hope to see you there. Old George kept us safe, and I felt quite secure with him in the lead. Never have I felt so unsafe and insecure as with this present administration. I invite you Dan to look into this matter of God and faith. You may be surprised at the goodness you will experience for you and your family. Kind regards.

Robert Berger

Selwyn, for the last time,will you please stop making idiotic comparisons of Obama with Hitler? It's ridiculous the way you and other Neanderthal right-wing extremists have been demonizing a decent and honorable man.
I couldn't care less what religion he follows or if he follows any reliion at all. Obama wasn't elected to be America's religious leader(as if we even needed one),but our PRESIDENT.
And I'm also sick and tired of the ridiculous label "moral relativist" conservatives like you conveniently use to brand any one who disagrees in the least with your rigid and dogmatic views of morality.
There is no such thing as moral relativism.As I've said before,it's nothing but a straw man.
I don't know of any one who actually believes that there is no such thing as right and wrong, and that anything goes.
It's just that conservatives aren't bright enough to realize that not all matters of morals and ethics are black and white;there are many shades of gray.
It's not Obama and his administration which is a threat to freedom in America.
That would be the kind of President and vice-prez right-wingers would like to see elected in 2112 or 2116.
Some right-wing demagogue in bed with the religious right; narrow-minded,intolerant,self-righteous and ignorant.
A rabid homophobe and religious fanatic and obscurantist. This is the kind of president I fear. God save America from a smooth-talking scoundrel like this.

Philip France

Whoa, Robert. Do us all a favor and have your quack doctor tone down your medical marijuana prescription. You should also halve your dosage of lithium. You are likely the most out-of-touch human being on the planet.

Keep thinking and bleating the way that you do and you will certainly have the theocratic government that you fear so irrationally. It will be an Islamic one and your head will be among the first to be severed from its neck while your tormenters chant to Allah.

Shaun

Yes Philip, I do wonder what is going through the mind of someone who writes like Robert does. It does make for an interesting read, if not for a chuckle. Then again it's said someone honestly believes that way.

Shaun

Elizabeth

Today Mr. Duke has gone beyond simply suggesting that President Obama is a Muslim, and therefore with conflicting allegiances. He has laid the groundwork for a particularly insidious idea: black Americans really can't be patriotic in the same way as white Americans, and in fact, blacks aren't really American in the same way - or to the same degree - as whites are.
Mr. Duke, intellectually honest as you make yourself out to be, would you deny that in essence this is something you hold to be generally true?

Dan

Wow, thats quite a stretch there, I think you are reading in between lines that don't exist. Its also nothing more than just a roundabout way of calling Selwyn a racist. Not very clever. *sigh* The whole racism thing is getting REALLY old. Why cant you lefties just accept the fact that we don't give a crap that he is black? YOU people see the color of his skin. YOU people label him as black even though he is half white, half black. We follow Dr Kings dream. We judge a man by the CONTENT OF HIS CHARACTER. And just because you cant get past the color of his skin, doesn't mean we can.

And really, the constant trying to prove to everyone and yourself that you aren't a racist and that you are trying to smoke out racism by crying wolf at every opportunity reeks heavily of "The lady doth protest too much, methinks."

Dan

For 8 years we listened to you lefties call bush Hitler. Now its suddenly not cool to call the president Hitler?

How does it feel Mr Hamburger? How does it feel to have a person you consider to be an "honorable man" "slandered" so? I think it doesn't sit with you very well. Judging by how hostile you just were.

You lefties sure know how to dish it out, but you cant take it at all. Its quite hilarious how quickly you people call foul when your own tactics are used against you.

You lefties really are nothing but children in adult bodies.

Robert Berger

I'm not a leftie, and I've never called former president Bush another Hitler.I'm a moderate liberal.Being liberal is not the same thing as being a left-winger.
Bush was a terrible president, and he did an incalculable amount of harm to America and the world in his eight disastrous years in office.But he was no Hitler.He's not an evil man,just terribly misguided.

Dan

LOL, hyperbole at its best "incalculable damage".

Do tell what "incalculable damage" has he done.

Lets see, he spent alot in 8 years, thats true. But obama has spent more in 1 year, than bush did in 8. Yet you consider him "honorable".

Bush got rid of Sadam, and did massive damage to terrorists and their networks. Obama insults our allies, and grovels at the feet of our enemies. Do you feel safer with the modern day Nevil chamberlain?

Oh but then theres the patriot act. Ohhh that evil document that you lefties hate. Which every single time a leftie brings that up I ask them "what do you have to do differently now, since the patriot act passed." "what part of the patriot act is so bad" They don't freaken know. Cause all they have is what you have....Bush Derangement Syndrome. What has obama passed? Oh thats right, the healthcare bill that will THROW YOU IN JAIL, if you don't have an insurance policy. But no, thats not an affront to freedom. No. No.

Its amazing how stupid you lefties can be. You call bush misguided and obama an "honorable man". But then again, you are a leftie who says moral relativism doesn't exist. That makes you a moral relativist, by default. Your own statement and philosophy commits suicide.(unless of course you are going to argue that morals are indeed objective, but that would require you lefties to have standards.) So its no wonder you consider bush, "misguided" and obama "honorable"


Philip France

Dear Elizbeth,

Welcome to the community of responders to the intellectual articles composed and published by Selwyn Duke.

Counting Mr. Duke as among my intellectual heroes and as an articulate man with a rare and keen sense of veritas (as well as an extraordinary grasp of the English language, sentence construction, syntax and grammar), I am puzzled by your accusative tone and I wonder from what premise you arrive at your stated conclusions.

You express yourself as though you are intelligent and genuinely curious, but your questions and your suggestions betray simple logic. Please explain yourself more clearly for the benefit of Mr. Duke's loyal readership.

Thank you.

yoyo

Obama is just a man trying to do his best to leave the coun try in better shape than it was when he inherited it. Why cant right wingers accept that people of good will and good morals can disagree on fiscal policy for example without being traitors or Nazis?

Poor Obama is hounded by the morons who will never judge the actions just the propoganda and are quite happy being lead by a money happy mormon demagogue while questioning Obamas "faith". I dont care about his faith, just his intelligence and hard work.

Henry

How can you NOT care about his faith? His faith directs his view of the world, and thus guides his policies, to which he applies his intelligence and hard work. I'm sure Stalin, Mao, Saddam, Pol Pot, and others were both intelligent and hard-working. That doesn't make them good leaders... Get a clue yoyo!

Robert Berger

There's a mountain of evidence of all the awful things the Bush administration did during its two disastrous terms.
Just for starters, there was reckless deregulation, then the subprime loan crash,tax cuts for the super-rich,meaning redistribution of wealth the opposite way as a reverse Robin Hood stealing from the poor and middle class to give to the wealthiest causing increased concentration of wealth,crushing debt, lack of preparendness for natural disasters,allowing industry to despoil the environment with impunity,
neglect of New Orleans after Katrina, underfunded crime prevention, deteriorating infrastructure,pouring an unconscionable moneydown the toilet in the futile and disastrous Iraq conflict which could have been used for desperately needed domestic programs, willful mismanagement of government agencies,underfunded programs for childhood education, dangerous products,ineffective medicine,denial and suppression of scientific evidence, thwarting of vital scientific and medical research and experimentation because of religious obscurantism,shameless pandering to the religious right,appointment of extremely corrupt and right-wing extremist cabinet members and other government officials, and much,much more.
Many foolish Americans are calling for Obama to be impeached,merely because he has the courage to stand up to obscurantism and reactionary politicians, but if any president ever deserved to be impeached,it was Bush.
And by the way,stories about the Obama administration sending people to jail for not buying insurance have been shown to be a blatant lie,the same as so many other rumors about his administration.
Of course Obama isn't perfect.No president has every come remotely close to being this.His administration has no doubt made serious mistakes and will continue to. But I doubt that it will ever do anyhere near as much harm as Bush did.

Philip France

Obama seems to work hard at only one thing: Planning his next vacation.

He is not trying to make this country a better place, he is "fundamentally transforming" it into Venezuela or worse.

What part of the takeover of GM, Chrysler AIG, several banks do you not understand? This is socialist Marxism.

Health Care deform - This was among the first acts by Stalin, Hitler and Castro. This is totalitarian fascism.

Have either of our resident lunatics followed the "stimulus" money trail? It went to Wall Street and Union goons. This is trickle up poverty.

Obama and his fellow-travelers are not robbing from the rich and giving to the poor; they are robbing from the middle class and giving to their cronies.

Yoyo and Robert Berger, how can a human being become so dense and as intellectually bankrupt as you two?

Sticks n Stones

Bobby, You forgot to mention illegal aliens. Is it because you are one or that you support them with monetary endowments?

The list you posted is quite entertaining. It's typical of every president we've ever elected. Well, save for Katrina, which any intellectual acknowledges that the federal government could not intervene until asked by the state's governing body.

Has the government-run healthcare started and I just missed the memo? Gosh, I hate when that happens! For it to be proven as a "blatant lie", one would think it would have to have been in practice already. There I go being logical; forgive me. My bad!

History will show just how much damage Obama did to this once-great nation. We can only hope our nation is still around to [freely] read about it.

Mr. Duke, Another thought-provoking article.

Keep the Aspidistra flying!
