Obama’s Thanksgiving Message: Not Enough God for #Breitbart.com

Auto-rant mode

They don’t really take holidays over at breitbart.com; they’re in wingnut auto-rant mode 24/7, 365 days a year, and Thanksgiving is no exception. Ben Shapiro, for example, can always find time to dash off an overheated tirade about Barack Obama’s insidious socialist atheist Muslim agenda: FOR FOURTH STRAIGHT YEAR, OBAMA’S THANKSGIVING MESSAGE DOESN’T THANK GOD.

It’s pretty much the standard canned “Obama’s a sekrit atheist who hates Christians and oh yeah he’s a commie too” diatribe we’ve seen a million times from these hacks, but it’s striking to see how much hatred Shapiro can muster up for what is, in the real universe, a very warm, positive message:

Obama does mention God in this message, of course, but it’s not enough for Shapiro.

As for God, here was the only mention — as a throwaway line in a hackneyed aphorism, used constantly by this president for communitarian sloganeering:

As Americans, we are a bold, generous, big-hearted people. When our brothers and sisters are in need, we roll up our sleeves and get to work — not for the recognition or the reward, but because it’s the right thing to do. Because there but for the grace of God go I. And because here in America, we rise or fall together, as one nation and one people.

No mention of thanking God. None.

But, of course, we’re used to this. In 2011, there was no mention of God at all. In 2010, Obama was closer, but still missed the mark (‘we’ll spend some time taking stock of what we’re thankful for: the God-given bounty of America, and the blessings of one another’). In 2009, Obama didn’t thank God, either.

These people are so weird. When did Thanksgiving become a holy day of obligation?

And the comments are exactly what you’d expect, following Ben Shapiro’s lead:

That’s because Obama is the most EVIL and corrupt President that the United States has ever had…

[…]

this is due to his believe in alley or whatever that false prophet’s name is that muslims worship

[…]

ITS A MUSLIM THING?

[…]

Haven’t you been listening? This is no longer a country Blessed by God. That ended with the election of a Muslim to the seat of Commander in Chief.

“Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation…” - Barack Hussein Obama

“There is no god but Allah” - the engraving on Obama’s “wedding” ring. The same one he has worn on that same finger since his days at Occidental.

Happy Thanksgiving!

[…]

Satan himself appears as an angel of light and behind the Obama’s mask lies a heart overflowing with evil, greed, hatred, and genocide.

[…]

Obama’s god is Marx

[…]

The Usurp is an Al-Qaeda sleeper.

[…]

How can a divisive, inept, mean spirited, disingenuous, narcissistic brat thank God when he considers himself to be a god? There is no room within the pea sized obummer brain for anyone or anything else other than the won.

[…]

This is proof positive that Obama’s religion is Marxism. Period.

[…]

Muslims are just that way

[…]

Why would he thank God when he embraces Allah via his wedding band? According to our Commander in Chief, “There is no God but Allah!”

[…]

It is because he doesn’t worship the God of the Bible but another god. I would once have said it is the god of the Koran but now I suspect it is the Image of the Beast that greets him in the mirror every morning.

[…]

I’d bet that Baracky faced Mecca, knelled, and prayed five times to allah! /Sarc

[…]

The pedophile cult of hatred, violence, rape, murder, beheading, enslaving and terrorism. Islam , the Satan worshipers of the world.

[…]

He’s a marxist muslim SHILL God plays NO role in this FORKED TONGUED, SNAKE OIL SALESMANS world He’s the DEVIL INCARNATE

And uh… Happy Thanksgiving from breitbart.com!
