Is Obama Pushing Amnesty And Bringing In “Syrian” Refugees In His Weekly Address On 9/11?
Barack Obama gives what is a very nice Weekly Address on the 15th anniversary of 9/11. He’s given lots of different messages across the years. In 2009, he stressed service. He’s called for tolerance towards Islamists. He’s talked about peace in the Middle East as his super awesome plan in Afghanistan and Iraq came to fruition (sic). Last year he went with pushing service and patriotism. Or, is that people performing service are patriotic? This year we get
Fifteen years ago, a September day that began like any other became one of the darkest in our nation’s history. The Twin Towers were reduced to rubble. The Pentagon was in flames. A Pennsylvania field burned with the wreckage of an airplane. And nearly 3,000 innocent lives were lost. Sons and daughters, husbands and wives, neighbors and colleagues and friends. They were from all walks of life, all races and religions, all colors and creeds, from across America and around the world.
This weekend, we honor their memory once more. We stand with the survivors who still bear the scars of that day. We thank the first responders who risked everything to save others. And we salute a generation of Americans—our men and women in uniform, diplomats and our intelligence, homeland security and law enforcement professionals — who serve, and have given their lives, to help keep us safe.
A lot has changed over these past 15 years. We’ve delivered devastating blows to the al Qaeda leaders that attacked us on 9/11. We delivered justice to Osama bin Laden. We’ve strengthened our homeland security. We’ve prevented attacks. We’ve saved lives.
Interestingly, Obama faces a veto override over the bill that allows citizens to sue Saudi Arabia over 9/11, which was passed unanimously by the Congress.
At the same time, the terrorist threat has evolved, as we’ve seen so tragically from Boston to Chattanooga, from San Bernardino to Orlando. So in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and beyond, we’ll stay relentless against terrorists like al Qaeda and ISIL. We will destroy them. And we’ll keep doing everything in our power to protect our homeland.
Kinda hard to destroy them when he won’t name who they are. Still, the address is hitting all the points.
As we reflect on these past 15 years, it’s also important to remember what has not changed—the core values that define us as Americans. The resilience that sustains us. After all, terrorists will never be able to defeat the United States. Their only hope is to terrorize us into changing who we are or our way of life. That’s why we Americans will never give in to fear. And it’s why this weekend we remember the true spirit of 9/11. We’re still the America of heroes who ran into harm’s way; of ordinary folks who took down the hijackers; of families who turned their pain into hope. We are still the America that looks out for one another, bound by our shared belief that I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sister’s keeper.
Remember, Obama was blaming the U.S. and yammering on about al Qaeda’s lack of empathy in an opinion piece days after 9/11. Even back then he was super concerned with not being mean to Islamists.
Anyway, Obama ends the weekly address this way
In the face of terrorism, how we respond matters. We cannot give in to those who would divide us. We cannot react in ways that erode the fabric of our society. Because it’s our diversity, our welcoming of all talent, our treating of everybody fairly—no matter their race, gender, ethnicity, or faith—that’s part of what makes our country great. It’s what makes us resilient. And if we stay true to those values, we’ll uphold the legacy of those we’ve lost, and keep our nation strong and free. God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.
Does it seem that Obama is referring to illegal aliens, letting in all those “Syrian” refugees (who are mostly not from Syria, and seem to mostly be fighting age males, as we’ve seen in Europe. Oh, and very, very few are Christians from the area), and, since this is a big National Conversation of late, the gender confused? And even the current #BlackLivesMatter schtick? Is it just me, or do you see that part and think the same thing? It’s a strange line to put into a weekly address on the 15th anniversary on 9/11.
At least it is not as bad as Jill Stein, Green Party candidate, who went 9/11 Truther. But, perhaps he was rushed, seeing as he took most of Friday off, after a little statement on North Korea blowing off another nuke, to play golf.
