I said it before, and I’ll say it again: “If it weren’t for double standards, Democrats would have no standards at all.”
So, the Obama administration refuses to allow Flyovers for the “God and Country” rally in Nampa, Idaho because of the “Christian Character” of the rally.
Pentagon Denies Flyover of Patriotic ‘God and Country Rally’ in Nampa Idaho Because of its Christian Content
July 4, 2009
|This marks the first time in the 42 year history of the event that a flyover request was denied by the Pentagon.
The event is held ever year to honor the spiritual foundations of our country with a special emphasis on the men and women who serve in the armed forces.
In past years, the “God and Country Rally” has focused on honoring and paying tribute to those veterans who have served our nation in the past and those who are currently on active duty.
At the rally this year, all five branches of the armed services were featured with over 60 new recruits sworn into the military at the event.
After a phone conversation and an e-mail response from the Pentagon, Rally Director Patti Syme says they were denied the request for a flyover this year because of the “Christian” nature of the event.
But, the Obama administration is perfectly fine with hosting a Muslim event right in the White House.
Statement by the President on the Occasion of Ramadan
White House Press Release
August 11, 2010
|These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings. Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality. And here in the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country. And today, I want to extend my best wishes to the 1.5 billion Muslims around the world – and your families and friends – as you welcome the beginning of Ramadan.
I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.
So, it’s okay to say “no” because of “Christian Character” but then turn around and say yes to Muslims in the name of “justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
I wonder how dignified women feel when they are subjugated by Sharia law and what Barack Obama’s position on this is?
I know alot of you out there are going to say that Bush did the same thing at Ramadan, but Bush did not cancel flyovers for the God and Country rally saying the event was too “Christian.” Still, I’d also like to know Bush’s position on the subjugation of women under Sharia law.
