White House defends Prayer Breakfast remarks about the Crusades

February 8, 2015

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington
The White House on Friday defended President Obama’s remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast after he was widely lambasted by conservatives for bringing up acts done in Christianity’s name amid a discussion of modern-day terrorist threats.

Americans should hold themselves “up to our own values and our own standards,” deputy press secretary Eric Schultz said aboard the president’s flight to Indianapolis, where Obama is speaking at a community college, according to the pool report.

Obama believes that “when we fall short of that, we need to be honest with ourselves,” Schultz said, noting Obama’s “belief in American exceptionalism.”

    Dont count us Military vets out we can still fight for America and you have the right to do so also stand and be counted for God and County

  • 1775concord says:

    Hey, Eric Schultz: Where have you been? Obama plainly stated a couple of years ago that America is not exceptional., and another time said that all countries think they are exceptional, and America is just another one of them.

      Also on his first ‘world apology tour- he called America “Arrogant”
      He just recently at the prayer meeting, said “we are on a high horse”, but oddly enough, he does NOT even call his Muslim Barbarians of Islam what they ARE: Terrorists/Muslim/Islamists. He actually hates our Republic, and it shows in ALL he does Against our Republic, and what he says Against it’s citizens, that he has “Divided, Set Against each other, and Ridiculed publically.” I know of NO OTHER POTUS that has done these things, and KNOW he is deliberately following “Cloward-Piven” methods in taking DOWN this nation. Read about C-P online, and you will see that the two wanted to end capitalism, Overwhelm ALL our systems in place, and cause Chaos. ALL THINGS OBAMA HAS ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED, IN HIS SPITEFUL, HATEFUL AND BIAS WAYS AGAINST OUR REPUBLIC. These things, btw, he was taught also(his own book tells us) by Frank Marshall Davis, HIS Communist Mentor of Chicago/Hawaii for 10 years.(ages 8-18) No surprises here, except that American people WELCOMED this Fraud to take over the highest office in our land, AND ARE COMPLICIT IN HIS DESTROYING THIS COUNTRY.

    “when we fall short of that, we need to be honest with ourselves,”

    O.K. Then let’s also be honest and say that Islam is stuck in the middle ages and seems focused on the most brutal and inhumane aspects of mankind witnessed in recent history. As examples, wanton murder and mayhem, beheading, burning alive, female genital mutilation, “convert or die”, pedophilia, child rape, etc.

    The difference between ISIS and the Nazis is that the Nazis set up death camps, ISIS just uses existing towns and cities.

    This far Obama’s 6 years in office he has caused tremendous damage to our economy (over $18 trillion in deficit and growing), Obama bin Laden eroding our efforts in the Middle East, and backing various islamic terrorist groups, criticizing the US, and spewing out distorted history (crusaders). Obama is an insult to the US, and the Western word. He should be impeached and imprisoned. He’s the most incompetent, unqualified, delusional president in US history. We wilk be paying dearly for his mistakes/mis-steps, just as we are for Jimmy peanut brain Carter’s mistakes.

    1. ItsJo says:

      Noah, this is NOT what Obama has done out of ignorance-What he has DONE to America has been ALL DELIBERATE as he actually hates this nation. Please read my above post, and you can also find the sites online to verify. Thanks.

    2. I Seigel says:

      Seems like we’re paying a pretty heavy price for Bush’s lies and incompetence, too.

      And the damage done to the economy didn’t happen on Obama’s watch. Perhaps you weren’t paying too close attention?

  • JOY IN TUCSON says:

    instead of going backward thousands of years to depict ‘christianity’ as brutal…
    let’s concentrate on WHY the muslims haven’t evolved since!
    i don’t think beheadings or burning people alive send a message that they aren’t living in the dark ages.
    these people are sly..deceitful, cunning, killers. .they don’t want to be brought into the age of enlightenment cuz it would mean they might learn that they won’t be getting those 72 virgins or that it is WRONG to have sex with a child..or an animal..or killing an innocent human is WRONG…they don’t want to learn the truth!
    that would mean THEY ARE WRONG WRONG WRONG… but they are having so much fun in the meantime..sick bastards! (that includes bo)

  • Mary says:

    Obama “speak” reveals his woeful lack of the knowledge of history (of the Crusades in particular) and his reference point is his sympathy for and promotion of Mohammedanism. I often hear, “I want my country back!” Well, why did we let it go in the first place? Complacency, ignorance of the truth, self-indulgence, the idolatry of entertainment no matter how pornographic, the slaughtering of over 55,000,000 of our unborn children … the list is endless. America needs to repent and turn to the True and Living God. We have no country without His mercy.

  • metheoldsarge says:

    For centuries up to the present, the Muslims have been slaughtering and doing unspeakable acts of terror and atrocities in the name of Allah. The Quran orders them to kill all infidels. There is no place in the New Testament where Jesus commands the death of all who don’t follow him. If Islam is a peace loving religion, good thing they aren’t war lovers. He doesn’t want to talk about that. Seems to me that if this man can’t say anything bad about Christians or America, he says nothing at all.

    1. ItsJo says:

      Good post and true. Obama is one of them, and in his Own books, he mentioned WHO he always hung out with in college-the radicals. He taught “Rules For Radicals” by the Marxist 60’s radical, Saul Alinsky, and he Taught the 13Rules and methods to Acorn Thugs. More of his ilk. BTW: I do Not call this the religion of peace, as they all try to pull off, it is Rather, a CULT, which has been killing, maiming, etc. from the beginning of time, and they have STAYED in the 7th Century…they LOVE DEATH, and it’s DEATH TO INFIDELS they desire as they want to Rule the Whole World. We, who ARE paying attention, KNOW that Obama has protected Them, and NOT Americans. He traded 5 Muslim Terrorists Commanders from Gitmo, for One Deserter. Funny, isn’t it, that he did NOTHING to “Free Sgt. Tahmorissi who mistakedly went into Mexico, and was thrown in prison for 6 mos. Not a Word from Obama on “that military, that Obama claims
      “We leave No Military behind”…..what a Liar this fraud is.

  • Dan says:

    We don’t want to send troops overseas to fight, we are going to need them here. They want us to be spread so thin, we are unable to fight the Muslim terrorist’s already here and growing at an alarming rate. The easiest way to destroy a country is within. Consider this, Obama has already downsized our military capability to a fraction of what it once was, now they want to take that small fraction and send it out of the country. They want to disarm us, ever wonder why? You fill in the blanks.

    1. metheoldsarge says:

      Spot on. We Americans have been too complacent for too long. This has
      been in the works for decades. This is one of the things Khrushchev
      was talking about when he said that they will defeat us from within.

      1. Dan says:

        We need to organize a march on Washington, not with just a million but ten million, and armed only with the greatest flag ever flown, THE STARS AND STRIPES !! The people need to stand and be counted, before it is two late. I would like to see it happen JULY 4th, Independence Day of this year. Every Vet and Patriot that loves this country must unite. In Gods Name let this happen.

        1. JOY IN TUCSON says:

          i think this is an EXCELLENT idea…grass roots could gain some momentum and maybe we could pull it off….
          anyone out there wiling to organize a march on JULY 4Th??
          I’M IN…………

          1. Dan says:

            Lets do it.

          2. Dan says:

            What about face book?

          3. JOY IN TUCSON says:

            i guess motel/hotel reservations would need to be made..probably a discount with several guests…
            would need commitments from as many as possible…
            finding out where to stay seems to be the biggest factor..during summer months..maybe rv’s or campers or tents would be sufficient…it is certainly something to look forward to…INDEPENDENCE DAY …i know numbers speak volumes!
            i know there is a conservative group in every town…you just need to find where they are…
            i will ‘stir’ up tucson…
            maybe connect with info the last day of the month.

          4. Dan says:

            I love you Joy, you are quite the organizer. I want to keep in touch so we can coordinate this event. I have to sign off for the night God Bless and be safe.

          5. I Seigel says:

            You guys sound like a bunch of teenagers sitting around smoking pot and dropping acid and coming up with all these cool ideas to solve all the world’s problems. Peace and love all you hippies. Go watch old Star Trek episodes and drool over Barbarella.

          6. JOY IN TUCSON says:

            i am not even going to ask you if you have a better idea…
            dickweed libs never do…they just do the things they accuse others of…ie pot/acid etc..
            i never criticize someone for wanting to do the right thing….meanwhile idiots like you make fun….sorry…

      2. snowyriver says:

        It has been a long time since a war was fought on United States soil. Yes the new generations have forgotten what a war is like.. They will learn ! ! !

    2. ItsJo says:

      Your post IS correct. He is turning “America into a Dumping Ground” and filling it with 3rd world aliens and HIS Muslim/Islamics, as he sees this as Democrat Votes for continued Control.
      Obama actually hates this Republic, it’s Founding Fathers, Christians(which is Why he brought up the High Horse/Remarks of what happened hundreds of years ago-INSTEAD of addressing HIS Muslim Terrorists he protects, that BURNED A PILOT ALIVE. HE NEVER TALKS AGIANST THEM, ONLY AMERICANS, as he Never mentioned the Islam Radicals that were Killing Christians and burning their churches, world wide. But, he spoke about the N.Y. Mosque they wanted to build at Ground Zero, as “The right to worship, blah, blah, blah.” HE DEFENDS MUSLIMS/ BUT INSULTS AMERICANS.

      Obama with his “Co-President, Valerie Jarret who was born in Iran, and parents still live in Iran, is giving Them MORE TIME, to develop their nuclear weapons- WHY? Because here again, he is FOR Iran having these weapons, and using them on Israel, that he ALSO hates. Question is: “Why is this traitor to America STILL permitted to remain POTUS?” He is put off because Netanyahu was invited to speak before Congress WITHOUT Consulting the Whitehouse? Isn’t that a bit hypocritical when HE HAS BEEN INVITING HIS MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD TO THE WHITEHOUSE SECRETLY FOR YEARS NOW…AND LAST WEEK DIDN’T WANT TO EVEN LET THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW THIS? TWO FACED/FRAUD.

        By God glad to see you are like minded, welcome aboard the ship to take back the GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. I am 63 and I want my country back.

    Ours has to be the only time in history when every true statement must be defended because of bias and hatred and yes stupidity.
