Logic need not apply for consideration in right wing America. Two years after this clip aired on Fox news, the italicized comment that follows epitomizes the void propaganda creates in logic.
“Because Obama’s faith, or lack thereof, interferes with our lives. Initially he claimed to be Christian then he went to visit some foreign country and bowed deeply to the Prince who was Muslim. They hugged. If Obama was a ‘Christian’, he would not have bowed. His deep bow indicated submission and respect to that leader. In essence dragging out country with him. Muslims do not hug anyone but other Muslims.
Then Obama claims that he is Muslim. His accent is quite good when using their words, so it’s not something foreign to him. Yet this past Easter, while addressing his audience he says…”as we Christians”, including himself. Either the man can’t make up his mind what religion he is, or he thinks we are too stupid to know you cannot be both a Christian and a Muslim.
He has put Muslims in numerous aspects of the government, military and businesses. That way, when Obama is out of office, there will be other Muslims to take over.”
George W Bush kissing a Saudi prince, Donald Trump participating in a sword dance then placing his hands on an orb with Saudi leaders is polite diplomacy. Absurd right wing logic burbles righteous patriotism over Bush/Trump Arab encounters. Absurd logic dictates America fear only a black president whose middle name is Hussein. Fear Obama, the terrifying Negro whose diplomatic bow proves duplicitous Muslim intent to force Sharia Law on unsuspecting Americans. Absurd right wing logic can sleep well knowing its white reality television real estate mogul president isn’t a secret Muslim when he frolics with loathsome Arabs.
Absurd logic relies on ignorance, understands the propaganda of fear and knows how to nullify common sense resistance. Preposterous reason dictates Obama is Muslim for bowing to an Arab. Absurd logic scoffs at suggestion Donald Trump is anything but America’s great white hope. Right wing America – you need your head examined.
