“ … Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. Unless we get on a high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country slavery, Jim Crow, all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

PH: Let me start off this way - I am virtually 100 percent confident that this man who sits in the Oval Office knows virtually no truth whatsoever about the Crusades. You can't make a statement – well, I guess you can. You can make a statement like that if you know the truth of the Crusades, but you don't think anybody else does, so you’re just gonna lie about it. To compare the actions of the Crusaders that he's referencing 1,000 years ago, to the actions of ISIS militants that put people in cages and burn them alive, is so offensive to an intellect that is even remotely aware of what the Crusades are that it defies description. I cannot express to you how ignorant of a comment that is. I don't even want to talk about religiously offensive and all that stuff - it's just an ignorant thing to say.
This is what has happened, by the way, in our universities. Taken over by leftist intellectuals, hippies they now run our universities. They fabricate these lies and they repeat them so often, so frequently that they believe them themselves and certainly those who they train believe them. Barack Obama, being the product of this kind of an education - if you want to call it that - is merely regurgitating what he's done learned.
The Crusades - terrible deeds done in the name of Christ. Is this president apparently blissfully unaware that the Crusades were a defensive war? Okay, basic history here - basically world history. I’m not going to bore you to death because I’m gonna keep it short and sweet and to the point. Islam got its birth when Mohammed claimed to have had a vision from Allah. He went around and tried to preach - much like Jesus of Nazareth - and develop a following. It didn't work. Mohammed sucked as a preacher. So he decided to try conquest. Force people by the sword into his faith. Subjugation and conquest. And you know what he found? He found that that was a lot more prolific than trying to preach to people. Thus, Mohammed's religion of Islam was born. Mohammed was a warrior. Mohammed was vicious. Mohammed would export his faith by the sword. Mohammed's followers take over Northern Africa and we all understand the northern African nations became completely converted or conquered by the Islamic faith. But of course, Islam being a religion of conquest, military conquest – they weren’t content to stay in Northern Africa. Now if you go right across the Strait of Gibraltar there, what is that? That’s Spain. That's the Iberian Peninsula. The gateway from Africa into what continent? The continent of Europe. That was dominated by what faith? The Christian faith. And what do you suppose the Islamic individuals from the religion of the warrior Prophet Mohammed were attempting to do? Raid after raid after raid into Europe trying to conquer Europe for Mohammed, for Allah.
And eventually, the Christians get tired of it. The Christians get tired of it, and in order to protect themselves, their beliefs, their families, their very lives - the Crusades are born. Of course there’s much more to it than that, but the Crusades were a defensive war against the - this'll be a shocker - radicalism of the Islamists in Northern Africa. So when the president of United States stands there and says “Well yeah, back in the Crusades - Christians were doing the exact same thing! Terrible deeds done in the name of Christ!” Now listen, you could find somebody in history who does something horrible and claims that he was called to it by the Christian faith, whatever. I'm sure you can find someone. Granted, the typical suspects that are used, whether it's the Klan, it's Tim McVeigh, Adolf Hitler. What do you actually find when you look into these people like Adolf Hitler? He wanted to eradicate Christianity. Tim McVeigh was estranged from the church. They were rebelling against those things. That's what you typically find. The Klan? Give me a break. You don't find any home for those kinds of radical ideologies and beliefs and certainly terrorist activities in Christian doctrine, and therein lies the difference.
I said it before, I'll say it again. I guess I have to say it often enough until it trickles into the ears of the president of United States, so at the next prayer breakfast he doesn't humiliate himself and embarrasses his nation. The more like Jesus Christ I become, the more peaceful I am and the safer everyone around me is. The more like Mohammed someone becomes, the more endangered people/cultures/civilizations around them become. Can you find a nut in history that did something bad and did it in the name of Jesus? Absolutely. And you know what you can find in every single one of those instances? How their behavior did not in any way, shape or form fall in line with the example that Jesus set. Therefore, to call them Christians is both wrong-headed, anti-intellectual and offensive. You start doing that with ISIS and what you find is that they are emulating and imitating the behavior of the author of their religion. We can call them radical Islamists - that's fine - because what they're doing is radical. But they are not radically departing from the behavior of the author of their religion! And in that sense, President Obama's remarks were beyond offensive to Christians, offensive to the history of this nation, offensive to the history of the world, offensive to Jesus, and offensive to a basic, rational, semi-educated intellect. Like I said, another first for the great Barack Hussein Obama.
Are there people out there that actually still want to defend this man? That still want to say that he wasn't the most horribly unsuited man to ever hold this office? And I know I am violating one of my rules here. Because one of my rules - and I probably get this because I am a history teacher - but one of my rules is you have to give the benefit of a couple decades at least before you start making judgments about where a certain president fits the in the pantheon, in the list of great presidents and all of that. When the people were says George W. Bush was one of the worst presidents of all time – that’s because they didn't like him, because we’re in the here and now. And so when I say that Barack Obama is the worst, I'm violating that very rule.
But here's why I do it - because the things that Barack Obama has done, they're not gonna change given history. Nothing’s gonna change about the fact that he completely butchered history and offended the entire Christian faith that he claims to - well I guess he claims to adhere to. That’s another discussion. It's just an embarrassment from the beginning to the end. << END TRANSCRIPT
