1. The strangest Memorial service I have ever witnessed ..... T-shirts 'n' Injuns
2. How likely is it that a caring administration polled the 6 survivor
families to ask what type of memorial to their loved one they'd like to
have, and a majority of them replied "we want to have a service led by a

the President wildly and some great t-shirts with a new campaign slogan
emblazoned on them. That will be the best way to comfort us and lessen

President Obama: What’s With the Native American Blessings?
In the minutes after the Fort Hood massacre at the hands of Nidal
Malik Hasan, Americans waited to hear from their president, who was
scheduled to speak at the Tribal Nations Conference.
Hundreds of American Indian leaders were on-hand to hear Barack Obama
support them publicly. He vocalized that support before expressing
remorse over the Jihadist massacre that left 14 dead and 32 wounded; in
the nearly two minutes prior to even mentioning Fort Hood, Obama astonishingly gave a “shout out” to Tribal historian Dr. Joe Medicine Crow.
Days after the horrendous Safeway massacre in Tucson which left 6 dead and 13 wounded, a Memorial Service
was held at the University of Arizona. Prior to Obama’s speech, a man
named Carlos Gonzales gave an American Indian blessing but in the more
than two minutes before he got to it, he told the audience all about
himself; it was Obama-esque.
During Gonzales’ blessing,
he called on people to honor eastern, southern, western, and northern
doors before praying to “Father Sky” and “Mother Earth,” who provide
“masculine” and “feminine energy” respectively. He then called on
attendees not to forget “our fellow creatures” which included those that
“slither on” and “live under” the earth.
Of the six people who were killed at the hands of Jared Loughner, five were Christian and one was Jewish. Federal Judge John Roll was a devout Catholic and nine year-old Christina Taylor Green used to sing at her Catholic church.
The prayer and sentiment expressed by Gonzales is antithetical to
Christianity and Judaism. The Book of Genesis isn’t kind to creatures
that slither and talks of man having dominion over all of earth’s
creatures, not praying to them.
While visiting Turkey in 2009, Obama declared
that America is “not…a Christian nation.” What clearer manifestation of
that claim could there be than to have an American Indian prayer given
at a memorial in which none of the deceased belonged to that heritage or
faith? All however, subscribed to faiths that consider the Book of
Genesis to be part of their Holy Scripture.
At Fort Hood, Obama showed insensitivity toward the victims with his
“shout out” and his administration exhibited hypersensitivity toward the
shooter’s religion, all in the name of diversity. In Tucson, contempt
was shown for the faiths of the deceased victims in the form of a pagan
prayer, thereby demonstrating a complete lack of diversity and respect
for those faiths.
In the Declaration of Independence,
Our Founding Fathers accused King George of using “merciless Indian
savages” to excite “domestic insurrections” among the colonists. In
light of Obama’s seeming contempt for our founding documents, should the
similarities between the handling of the Fort Hood and Tucson massacres
be viewed as completely coincidental?
Giving him the benefit of the doubt has become a tired exercise.
