There’s a lot to like in this commentary piece by Michael. While I consider myself agnostic at best and atheist in all probability – I can see and appreciate Coren’s point about people suddenly getting religion to pray for poor Michael Jackson. I think Michael Jackson was a talented human being tormented by demons beyond all bearing – but I can’t pray for his soul if I don’t believe in such a thing.
The best parts of Coren’s article have to do with Obama’s response to 2 separate crises of leadership. One in Iran, where Obama stood by and let people die at the hands of a theocratic regime without even a word of support for those fighting for democracy. The other, a lightening fast denunciation of the legal removal of a far leftist wanna-be dicatator for life.
He also took a week to believe that innocent Iranian people were being beaten and killed for standing up for democracy and to stop referring to the Iranian horrors as “a debate.” It was no coincidence that his change of heart occurred the same day that millions of people watched a young Iranian woman die on YouTube.
Yet the same Obama — peace be upon him — took only moments to believe that the removal of the Honduran president was a coup that had to be denounced by the civilized world.
This is interesting, in that the president’s own leftist party described him as being mentally unstable and unfit for office, that he was breaking the constitution he had sworn to uphold and that the army, the agents of social order, had been ordered to remove the man by the independent and extraordinarily qualified Supreme Court and national Parliament.
No matter how I try and find a charitable interpretation of these acts, I really can’t find one. Obama is either uninformed, a far left ideologogue, or a craven coward. I’m talking Jimmy Carter craven here, folks.
