No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

“NO” to “War on Terror”, “YES” to ETOC Complaints

According to a report filed by Jake Tapper, President Obama has found a reason to fight Al Qaeda. No, it’s not because of their terroristic acts, well, not directly. No, the reason President Obama is unhappy with Al Qaeda is because they are racist!

In an interview earlier today with the South African Broadcasting Corporation to air in a few hours, President Obama disparaged Al Qaeda and affiliated groups’ willingness to kill Africans in a manner that White House aides say was an argument that the terrorist groups are racist.

Speaking about the Uganda bombings, the president said, “What you’ve seen in some of the statements that have been made by these terrorist organizations is that they do not regard African life as valuable in and of itself.  They see it as a potential place where you can carry out ideological battles that kill innocents without regard to long-term consequences for their short-term tactical gains.”

Have you picked yourself up off the floor yet?

So, let me get this straight.  The President believes that if Al Qaeda recruited more white suicide bombers, their human rights record would match right up along side whose exactly?

The spokesperson went on to explain the logic for this conclusion by using the African Embassy bombings as examples:

This can be seen, the official said, in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, when hundreds of Africans were killed and thousands wounded.

I may have missed part of this story but wasn’t Al Qaeda trying to kill the US Embassy employees at the embassies?  Is the administration suggesting that if Al Qaeda had calculated that the same number of white European innocents had been killed and harmed as collateral damage, that Al Qaeda wouldn’t have attempted the embassy attacks?

I know, you think I’m being loose and flip with the words.  You think I’m twisting what they’re saying into something it isn’t merely to poke fun at the administration.  Nope, this one is real:

“Additionally, U.S. intelligence has indicated that Al Qaeda leadership specifically targets and recruits black Africans to become suicide bombers because they believe that poor economic and social conditions make them more susceptible to recruitment than Arabs,” the official said. “Al Qaeda recruits have said that Al Qaeda is racist against black members from West Africa because they are only used in lower level operations.”

That’s right, if only Al Qaeda would have a proportional number of Africans in their upper leadership as they have in their human bomb division, the US would have no problem with what they are doing.

Can it be long before we have another Czar announced?  The Czar of ETOC (Equal Terrorist Opportunity Commission) will likely be made as a recess appointment during the next Congressional break.  I can’t wait for the first meeting between the Czar and leaders of Al Qaeda where the Czar will no doubt open the meeting by apologizing for Arizona’s discriminatory illegal alien legislation!
