Obama’s visit to Islamist mosque marginalizes our most oppressed minorities

President Obama visited the Islamic Society of Baltimore (ISB) today, his first visit to a mosque during his 7-year tenure. Obama used the context of the 2016 elections to bash Republicans whom he said were trying to “marginalize law-abiding, patriotic Muslim Americans.” Unfortunately, much like his 2009 “New Beginning” speech at Egypt’s Al-Azhar University, it was he who spoke over the heads of the truly marginalized in the Muslim community and empowered the Muslim Brotherhood and other theocrats who are oppressing them.

The American Islamic Forum for Democracy notes that, ‘The ISB links to radical Islamist cleric Yusuf Qaradawi, its leadership has called homosexuality a “mental disorder,” and has endorsed calls for gays to be “harmed.”’

Even the liberal New York Times called the visit a “tacit acceptance of a form of gender apartheid.”

Tolerant, peaceful and law-abiding Muslim Americans know who their oppressors are, and they are not GOP presidential candidates. Rather, they are their own religious and social leaders who openly state their anti-democratic and intolerant beliefs and intentions.

The 1-minute video below gives a disturbing glimpse at three Islamist voices: Imam Suhaib Webb of the Islamic Society of Boston tells us that a man who imitates a woman (or vice-versa) is cursed; American Islamic preacher Khalid Yasin openly calls for the death sentence for homosexuals; and a man attending Muslim Day at the U.S. Capitol openly states that homosexuals should be killed.
