The Crusades?...Who is Responsible for the President’s Talking Points???

"Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ."  (Barack Obama, February 5th, 2015)

Wha-wha-wha WHAT?!

Some other PLACE?

How about some other TIME?

About 1,000 years ago to be precise!

Funny story...OK, maybe not so funny; You know how those truly opposed to Islamic jihadism often say, “These radical jihadists have a Medieval mindset?”

Yeah, they’re talking about the prevailing mindset of 1,000 fucking years ago!

Europe apparently has evolved. No Crusades, no Inquisitions in nearly a Millennium. Sadly, the same CANNOT be said for Islam.

But somehow, at least in Obama’s speech writer’s mind, 1096 is yesterday and the Inquisition, which targeted primarily European “heretics,” the Knights Templar were among the most prominent of the Inquisition’s victims, was somehow “the same as” today’s ISIS inspired atrocities.

In other words, “Don’t worry about it. It ain’t that bad. After all we did the same sort of things ourselves just a short while ago.”

Some have tried to be kind and chalk this up to Barack Obama’s “need to lecture,” BUT if you’re going to lecture folks, at least have a few points that at least...make some sense.

This inane search for some modern moral equivalency to Muslim jihadist state sponsored terrorism only serves to make fools of those who engage in it. Recently WCBS Radio News aired an editorial that compared Islamic jihadists to American Mafioso who were devout Church-going Catholics even as they engaged in their gangsterism.

Here’s the rub there, NONE of those mobsters committed their mayhem in the name of their religion, or with the sanction of the Catholic Church! Weird huh! Moreover, these gangsters seemed completely motivated by profit and not at all by religious ideology.

It’s kind of strange huh. I mean the closer you look, the LESS such moral equivalencies seem to make sense!

What’s the genesis of this idiocy?

Does it spring from the same culture in which everybody gets a trophy and nobody ever loses...everyone’s “right” in their own way?

If so, there’s all the proof we need of how degenerate that idea really is.

That degenerate idea has tragically spawned a malignant culture that sees “ALL humans as more or less, the SAME,” even as history, anthropology and biology scream to us that NONE of that is so. In fact, the various cultures of the earth differ widely on almost every level and across all units of measure.

Fact is, European morality IS superior to the Sharia morality that condones (even encourages) Honor Killings, prescribes amputations and public executions for various “crimes,” including adultery (mostly for female adulterers) and homosexuality. Those who can’t see that don’t deserve to be a part of Western society, simple as that.
