“Obama Admits He’s A Muslim” and the Crowd Goes Nuts

And on the eighth day God created FactCheck.org.

It’s a good thing she did too, because the people at Fact Check (a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center) are doing exceptional work. Today they uncovered a really diabolical and lame YouTube video entitled “Obama Admits He’s A Muslim”. Brought to you by a group called “Feel The Change Media”, this video has received over 1,000,000 YouTube hits since being posted in August, 2009. I can feel the change alright; Fact Check has revealed that the video is edited to show President Obama making statements that seem to prove that he is actually a Muslim, rather than a Christian. I was a post-production producer for eight years, and I can tell you that this is some of the most creative video editing I have ever seen.

I refer to the video as “diabolical” NOT because of the idea that the President could possibly be a Muslim, but because ever since 9-11 Muslims have been demonized in America. And during the 2008 campaign, accusations of Barack Obama being a Muslim were used to scare the ultra-right wing voters. As if being a Muslim means you are anti-American, or a terrorist, or you are unworthy, or some racist nonsense like that.

Come on America, can we please get a grip here? Will we ever be able to separate the person from the politics? We’re almost a full decade into the 21st century and we are still collectively acting like a bunch of drunken, ignorant fools at a KKK rally. “Obama the Muslim” should be as benign a notion as “Palin the Alaskan” or “W the Cowboy” or “Cheney the Prince of Darkness.” Well, scratch that last one…

“Post Racial Society”? Not the USA. No, the “Great Melting Pot” always manages to congeal into ignorant clumps of racism and hatred. It amazes me how important it is for the conspiracy nuts in this country to expose President Obama as a Muslim when there is not a single exception for any religion in the Constitution which would make someone ineligible to be President. Quite the contrary, it allows for total freedom of religious beliefs. That’s what makes this video so sad.

It wouldn’t matter if Barack Hussein Obama were a Muslim, Jew, Jehovah’s Witness, Atheist, Buddhist, Humanist, or if he were even Santa Claus himself–the people who hate him would still hate him because of his policies. But since those folks tend to be too stupid to properly articulate why they disagree with his policies they head towards the lowest common denominator (or lowest common uniter in this case). It’s amazing that this country got past the fact that he’s African-American enough to elect him. I guess being Muslim is the new black when it comes to racism.

I went to the web site for Feel The Change Media, and they have some other cute links there such as “Anti-Obama Shirts” and “Michelle Obama’s Bio.” So as you can see, they’re really feeling the change over there. And it feels like Antebellum.

  3. Suzanne Morrison Says:

    Another good post. I put in a plug for this blog at mine. So, I am sure many people forget the points you are discussing.

  4. Feel The Change Media Says:

    I’m glad you liked our video, actually you called it diabolical. Anyway the reason it matters why Obama is a secret Muslim is because America is at war with radical Islam, and if Obama himself is a Muslim then he could jeopardize American security. Obama is soft on terrorism, and as a result we have already had one successful attack by Al Qaeda at Fort Hood killing 13 Americans. Are we going to allow political correctness to kill more Americans by allowing a Muslim to remain in the White House, all because he is half Black?

    Secondly it matters if Obama is a secret Muslim because many people if they knew the truth about him would have never voted for him and he would have never entered the office of President. Many Americans would be worried sick if they knew that their President was an Al Qaeda sympathizer.

    Thanks for reading and commenting FTCM!

    It is indeed diabolical to edit a video in such a way that it distorts the truth, and ultimately becomes a lie to the members of your organization. It is delusional to think that Obama is a Muslim, and even if he were that would not automatically make him an Al Qaeda sympathizer.

    I’m not sure what your group’s intentions are, but you appear to have very radical and racist views which i felt were worthy of exposing.

    Shame on you for the constant lies you keep promoting about the President.
    Editing has been done to the speeches and you should use your time more wisely. Read this site for the truth.

    I am not concerned about Obama’s religion, I am concerned because I believe he is a creation of the CIA. Explore the links, family, business, education, etc. An idea which is not beyond the pale.

    is there a way to save this you tube video to your videos to then burn onto a disc?

  11. PhilBob Says:

    I am sorry Mr Mad, or Voting… whoever you are, maybe just mad. You are blind and mad. You make no argument to counter or defend Obama, other than your misguided feelings of social and political correctness. Haven’t you noticed the public are waking to that lie now. The issues are far deeper than religion and you merely attempt to distract from them with a Red Herring in the style of tolerance. I grant you much content of the video is poor and likely dishonest, but the man deserves serious objective scrutiny. You deserve a refund for your votes, you got ripped off, maybe why your mad.

    Re: “Obama Admits He Is A Muslim” ‘At the very start of this youtube video is “Legal Disclaimer: The writers, producers, editors, and publishers of this video are not stating, claiming, or implying that (President) Barack Obama is a Muslim, or that (President) Obama himself claimed or admitted to being a Muslim.” I added the office of President which Mr. Obama hols out of courtesy to not only Mr. Obama, but to our country. I don’t think it is proper to title this video: “Obama Admits He Is A Muslim” when the writers, producers, editors and publishers state that is not what they are claiming. This leaves the veracity of the video in question, doesn’t it?’ (I find it is rather hilarious as well as shocking.)
