Obama continues to double down, even rewriting history, to make it appear that islam is part of the history of the United States. He has now several times stated this as a fact despite no proof.
“Here in America,” Obama stated, “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.”
This is despite the fact that the majority of founders were not muslim, but were one of the many sects of Christianity.
The numbers for the State of the Union is coming in, and its not rosy.
The early reports state that some 33.3 million people watched Obama give his speech. That number is the lowest since 2000 and Bill Clinton. Of course viewership of the speech has been going downhill anyways in an overall trend, and even Obama is not immune.
In Obama’s first year only drew 52.3 million, a low number for, what was then, a popular President.
The simple fact for these numbers is the State of the Union address has outlived its usefulness. In this day of constant news, internet, blogs, twitter and more the speech no longer has the same function as it did fifty years ago.
Yesterday, November 9, 25 years ago the Berlin Wall came down. It was a symbol of an oppressive regime and its population. Yet, looking back at the events its hard not to feel that the lessons of what the wall stood for have been forgotten.
The wall stood not to keep invaders out, or prevent an invasion, but to keep the population in. Consider that comment carefully. A real world Communist country had to build a wall to keep its population from escaping.
Its that basic truth which, twenty-five years later, has been forgotten in the euphoria of its fall.
