“Is there any other religion they’ve had ‘thousands’ of townhalls and meetings with, or are they only listening to Muslims?”

A well-placed source made these telling observations about Obama’s appointment of a special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference. A transcript of Obama’s actual remarks is here, and here is more from the special envoy himself, Rashad Hussein. The source noted:

Both Obama and Rashad Hussein refer to “thousands” of townhalls and meetings held around the world, where the US apparently “listened” to Muslims. Can we get a list of these? How much did they cost? Who did the talking? What was the agenda?Is there any other religion they’ve had “thousands” of townhalls and meetings with, or are they only listening to Muslims? How about the Coptic and Iraqi Christians being slaughtered — any listening going on with the authorities there?

Maybe in addition to willful blindness, this government has added willful deafness — selective listening only to the Muslim authorities and selective deafness to the cries of Christians being persecuted by those Muslim authorities.

And of course they’re listening to Muslims at these “thousands” of townhall meetings because Muslims cultivate an air of aggrieved righteousness. It never seems to occur to the governing establishment types that righteous anger may not actually indicate a just cause at all, but may merely be a cleverly deployed instrument of manipulation.
