Is Obama Naive or Malevolent?

Many wonder whether Obama as our President is well-intentioned but merely inept, ill-informed and naive.  Or if he is something worse?

It is possible he has “good intentions”, but they simply do not jibe with what most of America believes is the right course and proper methods.  It is obvious he is on a different wave-length than most of us as regards his methods in the realm of economics, his vision for the role of the federal government, and his priorities regarding our national security.  But he persists, urged on by his cadre of leftists, socialists, communists, and America-haters.

It is also possible that he really does not have good intentions for America as we have known her.  He and his wife have made their disdain for the present and historical America quite clear in their books and speeches prior to the election.  He has made his disdain quite clear in his associations with other America-haters and revolutionaries for the 20 years leading up to his Presidency.  These sentiments and associations are clearly in the public record.

What is also clearly in the public record is Obama’s affinity toward Islam.  He was born Muslim.  He was raised Muslim.  He attended an Islamic school in Indonesia where he was taught from the Quran.  While in college he asserted his desire to abandon his childhood name of Barry Soetoro in favor of the decidedly Islamic name of Barack Hussein Obama. 

Changing ones name is generally not all that significant.  But in the case of Obama, it was.  His father, stepfather, brother and grandfather were Muslims.  When his father, Barack Obama Sr., died in 1982, the family insisted on a Muslim burial. Obama’s grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, from whom Barack was given his middle name, was fiercely devoted to Islam.  Obama’s stepfather Lolo was a practicing Muslim.  Barack was drawn to the writings of Malcom X, the Muslim founder of the militant Nation of Islam.  Obama fondly described “Malcolm’s discovery toward the end of his life, that some whites might live beside him as brothers in Islam, [that he] seemed to offer some hope of eventual reconciliation.”  Obama was “baptized” in Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC), but his baptismal record, if it exists, has not been released. TUCC is Rev. Wright’s racist, black nationalist, America-hating church where Obama spent 20 years. Obama declared that “The person who made me proudest of all was [my Muslim brother] Roy. He converted to Islam, and has sworn off pork and tobacco and alcohol.”  Obama described the Muslim call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”  Obama declared that “I will stand with them [Muslim immigrants in the US] should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”  He has stood in the midst of Muslim nations apologizing for all of the sins of America.  This list could go on.

Why focus on Obama’s affinity toward Islam?  What does that have to do with the policies he is promoting? 

What is one of the major objectives of Islam in general and al Qaeda in particular?  To destroy America’s economy and render it a defenseless entity so Islam can achieve its historical dominance in obedience to Allah. 

Many have suggested that Obama is destroying our economy by adding trillions to our long-term national debt.  Many have suggested Obama is degrading our national security by his foreign policy, his handcuffing the CIA, his trying of Navy Seals, his requirement for Miranda rights to be given to enemy combatants, and his removal of the missile defense shield in Europe.

Are these actions bourn out of Obama’s naivet√© or by his malevolence toward this nation – enhanced through his affinity with Islam? Is it a mere coincidence that what Obama is promoting is one and the same as what Islam desires for us?
