Obama French Forward Translated! Fwd: FW: Pour ceux qui s'intéressent aux élections américaines

Our first translated red delicious! Tip of the chapeau to Nicole, an email recipient living in two worlds, both a shade of rouge. What's up with the Obama=Muslim fear mongering? This email harkens back to this pithy masterwork of vague Obama talking points.  

Again, merci beaucoup Nicole for the translation effort.  What an excellent opportunity to peer into the red minds of zealous family across the pond. 

 "Does anyone else feel my pain? I not only get right-wing e-mails from
my parents, I get them in
TWO LANGUAGES. This one landed in my in box
courtesy of my mom, who got it from her relatives in France. This
*sounds* bizarre unless you know that many French people harbor
serious anti-Arab/Muslim views. Submitted for your approval, here is
the Obama/madrassa story... in French! My translation is in
[brackets]. It's a fairly literal translation; in particular, the
pointless repetitions, the inane stupidity, and the easily-refuted
falsehoods are left intact."

Quand OBAMA rime avec ALLAH.
[When OBAMA rhymes with ALLAH]

En Indonésie, on le tenait pour un musulman. Abandonnée de son mari, Barack Uhussein Obama, la maman se lie avec un étudiant étranger, l'Indonésien Lolo Sotéro avec lequel elle se marie. Quand Subarto, le dictateur indonésien exige en 1967, de tous ses compatriotes à l'étranger, de rentrer dans la mère-patrie, Lolo, son épouse et le jeune Barack, alors âgé de six ans, obtempèrent et partent pour l'Indonésie.
[In Indonesia, they thought he was Muslim. Abandoned by her husband Barack Uhussein Obama, his mother establishes ties to a foreign student, the Indonesian Lolo Sotero, whom she later married. When, in 1967, the Indonesian dictator Subarto, ordered expatriate Indonesians home, Lolo, with his wife and stepson Barack--now aged six--obeyed, and moved to Indonesia.]
Le beau-père de Barack est musulman. Le jeune Barack se retrouve donc en Indonésie, flanqué d'un beau-père musulman et d'un père toujours vivant mais inconnu, qui est aussi musulman. Barack entre en sa sixième et sa dixième année, il est élève d'une "madrasa" ( école religieuse musulmane ). Un des camarades de classe de Barack, en ces années-là, Zulfin Adi, a affirmé que Barack << était un musulman et qu'il allait à la mosquée >>. L'année suivante, Barack intègre l'enseignement public, où il est encore considéré comme musulman. Dans cette école, chaque semaine, il y a un cours sur l'Islam et d'ailleurs, dans son autobiographie, "Dreams from my father", Obama reconnaît le caractère musulman de cette école, dans laquelle il dit avoir étudié le Coran.

[Barack's stepfather is Muslim. Young Barack, therefore, has a Muslim stepfather and an absent--but still alive--father who is also Muslim. Between his sixth and tenth years, he is a student of a "madrassa" (religious Muslim school). Zulfin Adi, who was a classmate of Barack's, affirms that Barack "was a Muslim and went to the mosque". The following year, Barack attends a public school, where he is also considered a Muslim. In this school, every week there is a class on Islam. In his autobiography, "Dreams from my father", Obama even admits the Muslim character of this school, in which he says he studied the Koran.]
Baptisé dans la foi chrétienne...en octobre 2006, la "blogosphère"
vrombit tout au long du premier trimestre 2007, de la rumeur d'un
Barack Obama, musulman. A tel point que son porte-parole, Robert Gibbs
se croit obligé de produire en mars 2007, un communiqué précisant :
"que le sénateur Obama, n'a jamais été un musulman *pratiquant*". Ce
"pratiquant" pose plus d'interrogation, qu'il n'y répond, d'autant que
ce même porte-parole avait précédemment affirmé qu'Obama <<>> ( sans le "pratiquant" ! ), qu'il n'a jamais été
éduqué en musulman et qu'il est un chrétien engagé !
Engagé...peut-être, mais surtout devant les objectifs des caméras
convoquées régulièrement à son service. Alors, pour ceux qui croient
en lui - dont nous ne sommes pas - que "God bless Obama, ou qu'Allah
le protège !" - Signé, Daniel Hamiche.

[Baptised in the Christian faith... in October 2006, the "blogosphere"
trembles all through the end of the first third of 2007, over the
rumor of a Muslim Barack Obama. To the point that his spokesman
Robert Gibbs feels obligated to produce, in March 2007, a memo stating
"that Senator Obama was never a *practicing* Muslim". (emphasis in
original) The wording of the statement, particularly the word
"practicing", aroused further suspicion, especially since the
spokesman had previously said that Obama "was never a Muslim" (note
lack of "practicing"!), that he had never been educated as a Muslim,
and that he is a committed Christian!. Committed, perhaps, but only
when the camera's eyes are on him! So, for those who believe in
him--to which group we do not belong--may "God bless Obama, or may
Allah protect him!"]

Reader follow-up on "Fwd: FW: Fw: Interesting yes? What a black columnist has to say about Obama. What do you think?"

Follow-Up: I always wonder if it's worth the trouble to try and convince a right-winger that his/her forwards are factually insufficient dribble. It just seems like a waste of energy.  I have no faith that members of the forwarding right are able to fully read a counter-reply from a critical recipient and are willing to pull of their red-lenses long enough to contemplate sources other than Fox News Co. and email.

Roy in New Mexico has the good faith I lack; he actually researched a nice (if not a little gnawing) reply to the below forward post "Fwd: FW: Fw: Interesting yes? What a black columnist has to say about Obama. What do you think?", calling out New York Sun columnist Ken Blackwell as the political tool he really is while shining some light on the true media bias:

"I thought you might be interested in my reply ro the blackwell e-Mail"


----Begin Reply----

I appreciate receiving the Blackwell comment with the vile comments by some brain-dead moron. You realize of course that:

Blackwell is a lousy propagandist for Murdoch’s New York Sun, Right-wing website townhall.com, and a “Senior Fellow” at the far-right-wing Christo-Nazi Family Research Council. The column quoted by the wild-eye, brainwashed e-mailer first appeared at Townhall.com on March 14, 2008.

Blackwell did his best to disenfranchise Black voters in Ohio. The Ohio election was rife with, deception, dishonesty, and outright fraud. He has been shown to be a liar on many occasions. Despite being so reviled and beaten so badly in Ohio, he remains a darling of the Rapture Right. Kenneth Blackwell: Pontificating from on high posted here offers a good overview. .

So Blackwell regurgitates that fake National Journal analysis without even referencing the source. This piece of propaganda has been debunked and ridiculed by so many sources (but not the corporate media which just joins in this Big Lie) Here are links to a three of my favorites:

* Daily Howler It isn’t that hard to debunk phony spin. Let Jon Stewart—a comedian!—show you: Here.

* Huffington Post Flawed Study Ranks Obama As "Most Liberal

* AlterNet Debunking the Myth of a 'Liberal Media'

Only the totally brainwashed, intellectually deprived, or totally ignorant could believe Blackwell’s screed that consists of nothing but wild, false, and many-times rebutted accusations, ad homium attacks, and outright LIES. Which is your friend? Treat them gently, they obviously have a lot to learn.

Fwd: FW: Fw: Interesting yes? What a black columnist has to say about Obama. What do you think?

Barack Obama: San Fransisco values? Yes. Anti-Christ? Maybe.

Thanks Jennifer for this insanely red-delicious forward. This email manages to press all the red state hot buttons: Gays, Muslims, Taxing the Rich, Abortion and a smooth finish quoting Biblical Prophecy of our dear Auntee Christ.

Is this the perfect Right-Wing Forward? Debatable.

Note: This entry into the archive ushers in our newest search terms "Middle America Values" and "Anti-Christ"

"Hi My Right Wing Dad,
I get some of these from family and old family friends in West Texas - this is the first one that creeped me out enough to send it in." Go to town!!! " -Jennifer

Ken Blackwell - Columnist for the New York Sun

It's an amazing time to be alive in America. We're in a year of firsts in this presidential election: the first viable woman candidate; the first viable African-American candidate; and, a candidate who is the first front running freedom fighter over 70. The next president of America will be a first.

We won't truly be in an election of firsts, however, until we judge every candidate by where they stand. We won't arrive where we should be until we no longer talk about skin color or gender. Now that Barack Obama steps to the front of the Democratic field, we need to stop talking about his race, and start talking about his policies and his politics.

The reality is this: Though the Democrats will not have a nominee until August, unless Hillary Clinton drops out, Mr. Obama is now the frontrunner, and its time
America takes a closer and deeper look at him.

Some pundits are calling him the next John F. Kennedy. He's not. He's the next George McGovern. And it's time people learned the facts.

Because the truth is that Mr. Obama is the single most liberal senator in the entire
U.S. Senate. He is more liberal than Ted Kennedy, Bernie Sanders, or Mrs Clinton. Never in my life have I seen a presidential frontrunner whose rhetoric is so far removed from his record. Walter Mondale promised to raise our taxes, and he lost George McGovern promised military weakness, and he lost. Michael Dukakis promised a liberal domestic agenda, and he lost.

Yet Mr. Obama is promising all those things, and he's not behind in the polls. Why? Because the press has dealt with him as if he were in a beauty pageant. Mr. Obama talks about getting past party, getting past red and blue, to lead the
United States of America. But let's look at the more defined strokes of who he is underneath this superficial "beauty."

Start with national security, since the president's most important duties are as commander-in-chief. Over the summer, Mr. Obama talked about invading Pakistan, a nation armed with nuclear weapons; meeting without preconditions with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who vows to destroy Israel and create another Holocaust; and Kim Jong Il, who is murdering and starving his people, but emphasized that the nuclear option was off the table against terrorists - something no president has ever taken off the table since we created nuclear weapons in the 1940s. Even Democrats who have worked in national security condemned all of those remarks. Mr. Obama is a foreign-policy novice who would put our national security at risk.

Next, consider economic policy. For all its faults, our health care system is the strongest in the world. And free trade agreements, created by Bill Clinton as well as President Bush, have made more goods more affordable so that even people of modest means can live a life that no one imagined a generation ago. Yet Mr. Obama promises to raise taxes on "the rich." How to fix Social Security? Raise taxes. How to fix Medicare? Raise taxes. Prescription drugs? Raise taxes. Free college? Raise taxes. Socialize medicine? Raise taxes. His solution to everything is to have government take it over. Big Brother on steroids, funded by your paycheck.

Finally, look at the social issues. Mr. Obama had the audacity to open a stadium rally by saying, "All praise and glory to God!" but says that Christian leaders speaking for life and marriage have "hijacked" - hijacked - Christianity. He is pro-partial birth abortion, and promises to appoint Supreme Court justices who will rule any restriction on it unconstitutional. He espouses the abortion views of Margaret Sanger, one of the early advocates of racial cleansing. His spiritual leaders endorse homosexual marriage, and he is moving in that direction. In
Illinois, he refused to vote against a statewide ban - ban - on all handguns in the state. These are radical left, Hollywood, and San Francisco values, not Middle America values.

The real Mr. Obama is an easy target for the general election. Mrs. Clinton is a far tougher opponent. But Mr. Obama could win if people don't start looking behind his veneer and flowery speeches. His vision of "bringing America together" means saying that those who disagree with his agenda for America are hijackers or warmongers. Uniting the country means adopting his liberal agenda and abandoning any conflicting beliefs.

But right now everyone is talking about how eloquent of a speaker he is and - yes - they're talking about his race. Those should never be the factors on which we base our choice for president. Mr. Obama's radical agenda sets him far outside the American mainstream, to the left of Mrs. Clinton

It's time to talk about the real Barack Obama. In an election of firsts, let's first make sure we elect the person who is qualified to be our president in a nuclear age during a global civilizational war.

Kind of scary, wouldn't you think?

Remember--God is good, and is in time, on time--every time.

According to The Book of Revelations the anti-christ is: a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal....the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, will destroy everything.

Is it OBAMA??

I STRONGLY URGE each one of you to repost this as many times as you can! Each opportunity that you have to send it to a friend or media outlet...do it!

If you think I am crazy. I'm sorry but I refuse to take a chance on the "unknown" candidate.
