Fox Guest Accuses Obama Of ‘Romanticizing’ Islam Because Of His ‘Indonesian Childhood’

With the death of ISIS “Joe Biden,” Fox had to find some other reason to accuse President Obama of being soft on terrorism, specifically the Islamic kind.

With the death of ISIS “Joe Biden,” Fox had to find some other reason to accuse President Obama of being soft on terrorism, specifically the Islamic kind. After all, Fox had been attacking Obama for not returning home from Cuba to deal with ISIS, in the wake of the Brussels attacks. Now that he managed to chew gum and score a major battlefield victory at the same time, what’s a “fair and balanced” network that spends nearly every broadcasting minute accusing him of being lax on terrorism to do?

Why, trot out the Obama-despising, “secret Muslimdog-whistle blower Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and act like he’s a neutral analyst.

Peters got down to what he knew he was there to do.

PETERS: One aspect of Islam is violent extremism. And some Muslims are fanatical jihadis. And when the president cannot accept that, when he keeps saying – when the president of the United States, purportedly a Christian, says “That’s not Islam,” that’s like the king of Saudi Arabia saying “The Pope’s not a Christian.” It doesn’t convince anyone. But the left is so wed, the president is so wed to this romanticization of Islam that he carried with him from his Indonesian childhood that he just can’t get it out.

Peters went on to accuse President Obama of being “retired on active duty,” meaning he’s just riding out his term. “He doesn’t want any drama, he doesn’t want any events, he will not take decisive action,” Peters said.

Even though Obama just had taken action, probably finalized while he was in Cuba.

This is not the first time Peters has accused Obama of romanticizing Islam. On March 17, Peters complained on Fox, "This administration still romanticizes Islam. It still finds Christians somehow distasteful." That was the day the U.S. declared that the Islamic State is committing genocide against Christians.

Are you seeing a pattern here?

Watch the racial hate mongering above, from the March 25 The O’Reilly Factor.
