Your Daily Flaming Dumbass: The Dhimmi-In-Chief
July 7, 2010 Leave a comment
Add NASA Director Charles Bolden to the long list of people apparently intent on making our heads explode:
“When I became the Nasa administrator, he [Mr Obama] charged me with three things.
“One, he wanted me to help reinspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.”
Perhaps the Director of NASA misheard, misunderstood, misinterpreted, or otherwise mentally mangled the charge he had been given by President Obama.
After all, while one can be forgiven for assuming that the most nonsensical, pandering Islamophile dhimmitude issues forth from the Panderer-In-Chief with sickening regularity, the idea that the President of the United States of America would assert that the penultimate aim of NASA is to make Muslims feel good about themselves is so lacking in anything approaching rationality as to make a typical bit of satire from The Onion seem like something one would find on the History Channel.
But wait! Mr. Bolden did not mishear Mr. Obama’s priorities vis. NASA:
NASA assistant administrator for public affairs Bob Jacobs told ABC News that “Administrator Bolden understands that NASA’s core mission is exploration, both in space and in scientific endeavors here at home. Inherent to the success of that mission is cooperation and collaboration with other nations which are equally committed to this effort, including expanding the range of countries with which NASA engages and partners.”
In response to criticism, White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said in a statement that “The President has always said that he wants NASA to engage with the world’s best scientists and engineers as we work together to push the boundaries of exploration. Meeting that mandate requires NASA to partner with countries around the world like Russia and Japan, as well as collaboration with Israel and with many Muslim-majority countries. The space race began as a global competition, but, today, it is a global collaboration.”
In other words, the Administration did not distance themselves in any way from Director Bolden’s absurd remarks. One is left to conclude that Mr. Bolden perfectly understood the charge he was being given.
But of course this is all just the Right-Wing Hate Machine flipping out at the word Muslim, per the laughably misnamed Media Matters.
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah or the Last Day, or acknowledge that Islam is the religion of Truth, even if they are Jews or Christians, until they submit to slavery to you willingly and feel themselves subdued.” — Qur’an 9:29
Little did the Prophet imagine how readily modern-day dhimmis would beg to be enslaved.
