The president wants to give the Muslims running Egypt a lot of stuff.
It’s expensive stuff.
American taxpayers will foot the bill.
He wants to give them 16 F16 Fighter Jets.
He wants to give them 200 Abrams Tanks.
He wants to give them Armored Personnel Carriers … and Apache Helicopters … and hundreds of millions of dollars of military stuff.
The Obama administration is comfortable giving all of this military weaponry to a country with a leader, President Morsi, who said this about the Jews:
He asked Egyptians to “nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred.”
He called his Israeli neighbors, who are our best friends in the region,
“the descendants of apes and pigs.”
In other words, like the Nazis, he considers Jews to be subhuman. He says they are bloodsuckers.
And yet the Obama administration wants to make Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood stronger militarily.
It is reasonable to ask if this gift of military might to a nation spouting this kind of hate speech might be harmful to our friends in Israel.
The anti Zionists on the left will quickly push back and derisively claim that we give Israel a lot more. They would be correct.
But have you ever heard a Jew characterize Muslims as “the descendants of apes and pigs?”
Have you ever heard a Jew call for an intergenerational hate campaign against Muslims?
President Obama might have something in common with President Morsi when it comes to characterizing a group of people as bloodsuckers, but in his case, it’s probably Republicans he’s thinking about.
As the sequester drew near, he blamed the Republicans, those dastardly bloodsuckers, for the coming carnage. He said tens of thousands of teachers would lose their jobs.
He said there would be long, long delays at airports. And that there would be less meat on store shelves. And the number of starving kids and old folks would go up. And so would unemployment. And illegal immigrants would be released from jail cells and flood our communities with, I’m not sure what, but I guess he thinks illegal immigrants are going to do bad things.
Anyway, all of that is going to happen because of the Republican bloodsuckers.
And yet he’s comfortable giving weapons of destruction to people of questionable character at a time of supposedly big budget cuts at home that are going to hurt a lot of Americans … or so he says.
A secret e-mail slipped out that let the cat out of the bag. The leaked e-mail from a Department of Agriculture field office reveals that we’re being conned:
“However you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be.”
Arkansas Congressman, Tom Griffin explained what it means:
“This email confirms what many Americans have suspected: The Obama administration is doing everything they can to make sure their worst predictions come true and to maximize the pain of the sequester cuts for political gain.”
In essence, what the administration is saying, says Griffin, is that …
“… you can’t do anything that is inconsistent with the negative impact that we’ve told everybody these cuts are going to have.”
In other words, the president is okay letting us average working class Americans get hurt for the sake of politics. He won’t sacrifice the needs of the Muslim Brotherhood over in Egypt, but he’s perfectly fine with hurting the Americans who are footing the bills for all these weapons.
Who does the president want to hurt to make a political point?
