Former Rep. Tancredo: Send Obama Back To Kenya!
A Tea Party rally in Greenville, South Carolina over the weekend took some of the Tea Party’s violent rhetoric (?) to new levels, with speakers attacking everything from President Obama’s citizenship to Sen. Lindsey Graham’s sexuality.
The event was hosted by theÂ Upcountry Conservative Coalition, a local South Carolina conservative group that describes its mission statement as:
We the People…are coalescing to reclaim our God given rights by restoring our Constitutional Republic.
The event took place at the Bi-Lo Center in Greenville, andÂ featured former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) as its keynote speaker. Tancredo, who ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008, said that Americans are “going to have to pray that we can hold on to this country.”
HeÂ added, referring to President Obama: “If his wife says Kenya is his homeland, why don’t we just send him back?”
Pastor Stan Craig, of the Choice Hills Baptist Church, was particularly angry about the state of Washington, saying he “was trained to defend the liberties of this nation.” He declared that he was prepared to “suit up, get my gun, go to Washington, and do what they trained me to do.” Â More from TPM
After surrendering the demand for stiff UN sanctions on Iran, the Obama Regime has renegged on the longstanding American commitment of assuring Israel of recognized and defensible borders byÂ omitting the word “defensible.”
In the administration’s message of congratulations to Israel on its 62nd Day of Independence, US Secretary of state Hillary Clinton mentions “recognized borders” while omitting the traditional “defensible.”
“I have a deep personal commitment to Â (destroy) Israel,” Clinton said. “And so does President Obama. Our nation will not waver in protectingÂ Israel’s security and promotingIsrael’s future (under Islam). That is why pursuing peace and recognized borders forÂ IsraelÂ is one of our top priorities.”
The Wall Street Journal almostÂ gets it right. After the recent flap over Jewish settlements north of Jerusalem, concern is growing that the U.S. wants Israel to return to its pre-1967 borders. At their narrowest, those borders give Israel a nine-mile margin between the West Bank and the Mediterranean Sea. For those who cannot get into the Journal’s site, you can find the full editorialÂ here. Â Carl in J’lem
Obama brings the Jew-haters out of the woodwork
The New York Post’s Michael Goodwin reports that President Obama’s tough talk on Israel is being used by all sorts ofÂ anti-Semitic scum who believe that their vile hatred is suddenly acceptable (Hat Tip:Â Jammie Wearing Fool). Â Read the whole thing.
It’s disgusting but not at all surprising. The next thing you know, some American diplomat will refer to Israel as “that s***y little country.” What could go wrong?
