Obama just can’t get things right when it comes to those pesky janitors

Obama is having a bad week when it comes to Joo . . . janitors.  After his mispronunciation faux pas (which was probably the innocent act of a mental stumble bum, but which sounded appalling coming from Obama, who has proven hostile to Israel and the Jews), he’s now issued a Rosh Hashanah message that’s sure to offend.  Here’s the message:

And here’s Keith Koffler explaining why, peculiar accent aside, Obama put his foot in his mouth again:

The insult is this:

Around the world, a new generation is reaching for their universal rights.

By this he means the “Arab Spring.” Just as he did in his Passover greeting, Obama is using a Jewish holiday to tout the struggle of people who, by and large, hate Jews.

It’s a tribute to how little this supposedly worldly man understands about other cultures that he could possibly place the Arabs and the Muslims into a Jewish New Year greeting.

You should read Koffler’s entire post, ’cause it expands on this point.

I’ve said it before of Obama, and I’ll say it again:  What a maroon.

    Yes!  And get this message out to as many Jews and supporters of Israel as possible!

    Obama’s approval rating is already down to 45% – finally! – among American Jews, and it should be far, far lower.  They’ve just been fooled for so long, but now they’re finally waking up.
     
    On one of the most important Jewish holidays, Barack Obama CANNOT simply offer up a simple “have a great holiday” to Jews.  He is compelled to bring in his Muslim friends into it!  He simply HAS to!  How very, very insulting.  And illuminating:  He cannot be nice to Jews, because that would anger and insult his Muslim friends.

    He cannot be a friend to Israel.  It is simply not possible for him.  Isn’t that strange?

    It is also strange that, at least most of the time, Obama cannot bring himself to directly lie.  He almost always plays an incredibly deceitful trick with his words, instead of out-and-out lying.  (Refer to another of today’s posts: “Teachers MIGHT be the hardest working group out there today” – a deceptive phrase that actually means absolutely nothing…)  In this case, with Israel, he couches his praise of Muslims with that mealy-mouthed phrase “A new generation is reaching for its universal rights”… in what should be a simple Rosh Hashanah message to Jews!

    Strange man.  Strange, strange.  And utterly hostile to Israel.

    Sorry to belabor the point, but Team Left is totally lit up about the happenings in Lower Manhattan. A police officer with the colorful name of Anthony Bologna — Tony Baloney — pepper-sprayed some demonstrators, the incidents are under investigation by the NYPD, and, of course, the usual screams about “fascism” and “police state”. And I still have yet to see any mention of this in the conservative blogosphere.

    FOX News covered it.  There will be an investigation. OTOH … they so wanted their very own Arab Spring experiment, let the LEFT blogs cover it, covet it – whatever.

    neocon hippie:

    I read the linked article.  If I can agree with any of it, it is the part where police officers feel mightily offended – mightily offended! – if a citizen decides to record actions with a video camera.  These officers – those who become offended – tend to act out in a manner I usually associate with spoiled little rotten brats who unfortunately had overindulgent and permissive parents.

    Such police officers have forgotten their place and are on a power trip.  I know the job can be hellish, and that they normally deal with the dregs of the community 24-7.  But when it comes to citizens performing legal activities, “To Protect And To Serve” is the order of the day.  Much as “First, Do No Harm” is the order of a physician’s day.  There’s been enough anecdotal evidence accumulated, especially via Instapundit, to indicate we’ve got a widespread problem here.

    (I have the same opinion of citizens videotaping police officers as I do citizens videotaping politicians – yes, you can videotape, and yes, you should videotape.  Whenever you wish to.)

    Eliminate that problem with police officers violating their honor by harassing citizens with videocameras – a widespread problem, not merely at protest sites – and you’ve probably got very little or nothing to complain about at this protest.

    The NY Police union is on one side causing problems and the Left is on the other side causing protest problems. Either way, they win. That’s how the LEft “progresses” while the rest of America gets pushed back to the last hold out.

    There is an  additional irony- if one can call it that- about Obama’s  statement that “Around the world, a new generation is reaching for their universal rights.” Arabs have voted in Israel from the beginning of the creation of the state of Israel. There are Arabs in the Knesset. Where in the Arab world does a citizen’s vote count?  In Gaza? One vote, one time. In the West Bank, Abbas is  7 years or so in to a four year term, having neglected to hold elections after his term expired.  Syria? Need I go on? 
    The education and medical care that Arab citizens of Israel receive are superior to what Arabs get in Arab countries. 
     
    Would that Obama had the cojones to say something like this:
    Around the world, a new generation is reaching for their universal rights.Arabs in Arab countries want the same universal rights that Arab citizens of Israel have enjoyed since 1948.”
     
    But he would never dare utter such a statement, true though it is.

    Obama is incapable of uttering a truth, for it would burn him. It being the truth, is enough.

    Sort of off topic.  Did you see Janeane Garofalo’s latest:

    —–
    Janeane Garofalo: “Herman Cain is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican party. Conservative movement and tea party movement, one in the same.

    “People like Karl Rove liked to keep the racism very covert. And so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity say you can say ‘Look, this is not a racist, anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look we have a black man.'”
    —–

    Aside from the very obvious “racism card” – and the fact that we are all guilty of racism, just because! …
     
    She is also calling Herman Cain one of two things:
    A. An Uncle Tom
    B. A very stupid man

    “Look, we have a black man.”  How insulting is that to that black man?
    I bet she just looooves Thomas Sowell, Col. Allen West, Clarence Thomas, etc, etc, etc…

    What a moron.

    Hey Devx, you know she requires conservative bodyguards to make sure they don’t take her out in broaddaylight right?

  • http://bookwormroom.com Bookworm

    Janeane is rapidly losing touch with any sort of sanity.  I mean, think of her whole vision here:  The smoke-filled room of GOPers has a passive, drugged Uncle Tom hiding in the closet.  They drag him out for election time, and sent out secret messages to millions of conservatives across America telling them to “pretend to like Herman Cain,” so that conservatives can trick ordinary Americans into thinking they’re not actually racists.

    The whole notion that conservatives might actually admire Cain because of his values, life-story, drive, self-discipline and patriotism, is impossible for a race-monger such as Janeane to understand.

    It occurs to me that Herman Cain and Clarence Thomas have similar stories. Granted they chose different career paths but each came from nothing to achieve great things.
     
    It also occurs to me that Janeane Garofalo came from nothing has achieved nothing other than to spew incoherent babble. I was sure that she and her ilk were going to suggest that conservatives were looking upon Herman Cain favorably to cover up their racism. That’s most likely why conservatives in Florida elected Allen West and Marco Rubio. These people are not going to rest unless we become a communist nation or worse a Muslim nation.
     
    I wonder how Janeane would look in a Burka? I wonder if she would like to live under Sharia Law. At least it would shut her up. For that matter Elizabeth Warren too. They would have to follow three steps behind their man. Why can’t they see it? Do they think they would be exempt because they supported it? Yes, let’s look at all the strong willed and out spoken women who help shape policy in Iran, Iraq, and Egypt. Why there must be….hmmm… come to think of it, I can’t think of one. Didn’t Obama send Moochele home when he visited the Arab countries? He knows how women should be treated.
     
    Obama was raised as a Muslim. How could he possibly like the Jews? Did you notice that he has spoken up for the Christian pastor in Iran? Me neither. I guess he doesn’t like Christians very much either.
     
    Gringo you make a great point about Arabs in Israel.

    More evidence he’s a shallow, arrogant, sanctimonious jerk.  

  • suek

    >>Did you notice that he has spoken up for the Christian pastor in Iran?>>
     
    In all fairness, the White House did issue a statement this AM stating that actions taken against this pastor would be in violation of the principles that they state that they hold.
     
    I’m not so sure about that part, but I’m not sure just what else the White House can say/do..
    Well…maybe other than saying this is an example of the intolerance that we’ve come to expect from islam and for that reason we can’t possibly support the Palestinians (might as well add Pockistan to that) any longer.
     
    Yeah.  right.
