The Obama White House doesn’t miss a trick.
One day after the funeral for the woman who was beheaded by a deranged member of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, the White House dispatched a high-ranking official to that very same mosque with an urgent message from the Department of Homeland Security:
The president wanted to thank the congregation for its service to the community.
According to KFOR, the official arrived at the mosque on Saturday to thank the congregation for its “hard work in helping rebuild the Moore community after a destructive tornado tore through the city in 2013.”
“Your service is a powerful example of the powerful roots of the Abrahamic faiths and how our communities can come together with shared peace with dignity and a sense of justice.”
The visit by David Myers, director of the DHS Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, helped the mosque mark Islam’s holiest day, Eid Ul-Adha.
KFOR also reported it was meant to reassure the congregation they weren’t being held responsible for the newly converted Alton Nolen, who beheaded one co-worker and attacked another before he was shot by the owner of the business where the attack took place.
The report also notes that the mosque has received various threats since the Sept. 25 murder, and made of point of saying the FBI has determined the savage bloodshed – think how bloody a beheading has to be – had nothing to do with Islam.
Really? How about the Facebook page kept by Nolen, aka Jah’Keem Yisrael, that featured endless amounts of Islamist writings, photos of Nolen outside the very same mosque the Department of Homeland Security is so grateful to, and the always pleasant slogan: SHARIA LAW IS COMING.
How about the fact that Nolen had argued earlier with co-workers while trying to get them to convert from Christianity? Or the report by Megyn Kelly on Fox News that the mosque did in fact harbor some Muslims with radical ideas?
Nope, that beheading had nothing to do with Islam. And if there was any doubt about that, the fact that the president of the United States went out of his way to send a high-ranking official there, on a taxpayer salary, traveling on taxpayer funds, and eating a taxpayer-funded per diem, no doubt, should set that all to rest, right?
As the reaction to the latest Obama outrage on behalf of a minuscule minority of Americans shows, it didn’t set things right at all.
Because no sane person could believe that. Not in the FBI, not the in White House, not even the congregation of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City.

@edwrather The government should be leveling it instead of praising it.

@RantReaper Obama’s stupidity is only exceeded by his arrogance. He invites criticism & then attacks his critics

The timing of Obama’s emissary was also awful. It was only on Friday that hundreds of mourners walked in to Southgate Baptist Church in nearby Moore, Okla., for a funeral service for the 54-year-old Colleen Hufford, the woman who lost her life in that burst of barbarism that our FBI assures us had nothing to do with Islam.
@BreitbartNews Despicable WH has never contacted the family of that poor woman of any family attacked by blacks or Islamists period.

That’s worth pointing out.
But this one sums it up.
@BreitbartNews This is beyond the understanding of any civilized person.
