Welcome To The War On Terror, Lefties!
Even after 9/11, liberals didn’t have much of an interest in the war on terrorism, but now Al-Qaeda may have finally gone too far for the left,
Al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader used a racial epithet to insult Barack Obama in a message posted Wednesday, describing the president-elect in demeaning terms that imply he does the bidding of whites.
The message appeared chiefly aimed at persuading Muslims and Arabs that Obama does not represent a change in U.S. policies. Ayman al-Zawahri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites, that Obama is “the direct opposite of honorable black Americans” like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader.
In al-Qaida’s first response to Obama’s victory, al-Zawahri also called the president-elect–along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice–“house negroes.”
Speaking in Arabic, al-Zawahri uses the term “abeed al-beit,” which literally translates as “house slaves.” But al-Qaida supplied English subtitles of his speech that included the translation as “house negroes.”
It’s one thing to kill Americans, but to refer to Barack Obama with the same term that Harry Belafonte used to describe Colin Powell and Condi Rice? That’s over-the-line and demands some hard core retaliation!
So, when does Obama sit down for unconditional talks with al-Zawahri again?
