Obama in the Trojan Horse



President Obama at the 2015 National Prayer Breakfast commented on recent ISIS violence: “Lest we get on our high horse, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. This is not unique to one group or one religion.”


Gee.  Obama had to push back pretty far for the Crusader reference.  He is supposed to be an enlightened liberal.  Doesn’t he see that we have come centuries since those days? Doesn’t he believe in the progress of mankind?  Isn’t he himself an example of the enlightenment? Doesn’t he see that people in the year 2015 should be better than ancient Crusaders?


If petty minded Obama feels free to rummage history, why doesn’t he go back to reference cavemen?  Weren’t there cavemen who raped and killed women? Let’s criticize the Neanderthal for being Neanderthal. 


Going forward he criticizes the Crusaders but doesn’t knock the Muslims who invaded their lands.


He doesn’t hint that the Crusades are not nearly as bad as Isis.  Isis is living in the twenty-first century and acting like brutal cavemen.  We should actually “get on our high horses.”  At least modern western citizens, unlike Muslim terrorists, are not committing crimes that were more appropriate for previous eras.


The Muslims are stuck in the mud of previous violent times.  They have ingested the Koran in their actions.


We are better than crusaders.  Not that Christian crusaders were bad.  They were defending their countries against attacking-Muslims, not beheading and crucifying innocent children.


And what about the Trojan Horse while we’re talking about high horses?  The Trojan Horse was used as a trick to enter Troy way back in the twelfth century BC.


Obama is the one hiding in the high horse.  He is hiding his anti-American ideas as he is ruining our foreign policy and our free enterprise system.


 Obama’s teleprompter-rhetoric and lies were used to capture the lack of imaginations of simpleminded Democrats in two sad elections.
