“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims…,” stated Barack Obama’s Ambassador to Cairo in response to contrived Muslim anger over an obscure, anti-Muslim video on YouTube. It was a standard Administration attempt at appeasement-through-bowing-and-scraping which came just moments before Islamic forces scaled Embassy walls, tore down the American flag and replaced it with the black, 8th century revolutionary flag of Islam. (1)
Of course, we all know what happened in Libya later that day as 4 Americans were murdered in the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Ambassador Christopher Stevens reportedly having been raped before his death and his body subsequently paraded through the streets. (2)
Our “formerly” Muslim president would no doubt dub this one of the rites of passage in the long-anticipated Arab Spring.
Immediately after these 2 events, Mitt Romney took the bull by the horns and made a statement which absolutely frosted Barack Obama’s media allies. “I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”
How dare the Republican candidate preempt the obligatory statement of meaningless fluff which would soon come from the White House! And most especially, how dare he assume the role of outraged American after Obama’s men in Cairo had already doubled down on their “it’s all our fault in the first place” meme!
By reflecting in no uncertain terms the anger of most American citizens at the perpetual Islamic terrorism with which the current Administration can never find any particular fault—unless it be our OWN– Mitt Romney at last articulated what the Obama Regime has placed off limits as acceptable public discourse. That is, he asked out loud who the Hell these people think they are, dictating via murder what we as Americans are permitted to believe and say!
Though claiming Romney had made a grievous political error, both Obama and his media acolytes sensed great danger in the Republican candidate’s statements. Obama immediately tried to distance himself from his Cairo Embassy, issuing a statement to Politico claiming that “The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government.” (1) At the same time, the President’s media flacks attacked Romney at a Wednesday press conference, hoping to intimidate him into admitting that he had “jumped the gun,” “weighed in too soon,” or at the very least should NOT have criticized the president in the face of American deaths! “When Americans are being killed, shouldn’t politics stop…” scolded one of Romney’s media antagonists? (3)
But Romney would have none of it, stating much to the chagrin of reporters: “The embassy in Cairo put out a statement after their grounds had been breached, protestors were inside the grounds, they reiterated that statement after the breach. I think [its] a terrible course for America to stand in apology for our values, that instead when our ground are being attacked and being breached that the first response of the United States must be outrage at the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. An apology for America’s values is never the right course.” (3)
Naturally, the media continue to lash out at Romney for what they deem his extraordinary political “gaffe.” But voters are not buying it. Mitt Romney finally put forward what Americans have been thinking and saying for years. And most importantly, he is refusing to allow the media to re-frame his statements or push him into apologizing for having taken a stand for the United States and the freedom of its citizens to state their minds.
As more and more Obama media flacks lament the “disastrous day” Mitt Romney had in sticking up for the rights of the American public by sticking it to the apologist-in chief, one thing becomes increasingly obvious: the Regime and its minions in the mainstream media hate it when Mitt Romney connects with voters—that is, real Americans. Each time it happens, journalists will immediately try to begin divorce proceedings by forcing Romney to backtrack from his statements. But it just won’t work as long as Romney stands strong.
Here’s hoping Romney learns from his triumph over the Regime and the increasingly nervous, Obama media. Keep up the attacks, Mitt. They will pay off in a big way.
