Hmmm...

Take a look at this, and ignore the fact that I seem to be getting my pseudo political news off Perezhilton.com.

I cannot believe how shallow these women are. Barack Obama does not care about your religious views, and he certainly does not care that you choose to wear a headscarf.
It baffles me how slow some people are. And how inconsiderate. What would the Republicans do with a picture of Barack Obama addressing a bunch of women wearing hijabs? Even worse, a bunch of volunteers wearing hijabs?
Fucking sauté him, that's what.

You know, that's what I hate most about people. Fake outrage and "fighting" for non-causes. You wanna be a good Muslim? Tell the media about what's happening in Somalia. In fact, tell everyone Somalia is being mean to you because you wear a headscarf. Go crazy.
Draw some attention to people who actually need it.
I have no problem with that kind of cause. Saving lives and ending poverty.
But to go around claiming a man who is a minority himself, discriminates against you based on some bullshit excuse, is well, bullshitty. (I made that word up. Clever!)
I don't think there's anything wrong with wearing a hijab, and I certainly don't think Barack Obama sees anything wrong with it, but most of America does. So if you really care about Obama becoming president, shut your pie-hole and go sit in the back if you have to.
It won't make you no Rosa Parks either, missy.
Petty people with their petty causes. Drives me crazy. Another one for the Denmark archives (which is still goin' strong, by the way. WOHOO!)

helloo gotta say i've been reading your blog and it cracks me up!

but back to the topic yess i totally agree..there are bigger issues at stake!

the american right has already taken to calling him barrack HUSSEIN obama at every chance possible. others label him 'obama osama.'

and all this does not sit very comfortably with poor/working class white republican voters...the demographic he needs to win over the most!

although i agree no discrimination should have to occur, him winning the next election is a much much more important issue

Hi, I just wanted to say that I enjoy reading your blog, not least to get a perspective on life in a country very different from my own (I live in Scandinavia). Your writing is interesting, informative and funny. Keep it up!

You know what worries me about Barrack? He seems like he's hiding A LOT. He keeps saying that it's a lie that he's a Muslim (should it be an issue even if he was and should he not stand up for that right since it IS AMERICA for crying out loud) and then says that Jesus was an extremest. He went on to say that if the US tried to implement what Jesus preached on the Sermon on the Mount, the US's own defense system would fail. Well duh! Jesus preached peace. What does the US stand for then, Mr. Obama? He is pro partial-birth abortion, an abortion where the baby is full term and is pulled out of the birth canal feet first, a pair a scissors stabbed in the back of the baby's skull and it's brains sucked out by a vacuum until it's head collapses, yet abhors what America's troops are doing in Iraq. He's a very strange man and is very worrying when you analyze the minute things about him.

Miss v, took the words right outta my mouth ;-)

f_, I take everything he says seriously :-| It is a sickness.

renata, Thank you :-)

Erin, It IS America, you're right. And you probably know more about this than me, but I'll go ahead anyway.: America would NOT vote for a Muslim. Plain and simple. Even if they DIDN'T associate Islam with terrorism, they still would not vote for a non-Christian. Americans, from what I make of the news (we get MSNBC, CNN and Fox here), are a lot more attached to Christianity than Europeans, for example. Religion plays a large role in getting elected in America. And regarding abortion, let me quote the man himself: "NO BODY is pro-abortion."
I believe he'd just rather have everything done safely.
I don't think he's unclear or strange. I think he's just the opposite.

Thanks for commenting, folks <3
