Who Discovered the Americas?

President Barack Obama has long asserted that Muslims built America - and maybe that's part of what he means when he says, "You didn't build that!" Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is echoing the same sentiments here (FOX News), as he asserts that Muslims, not Vikings, Spanish, Irish monks or Portuguese people discovered America. 
"It is alleged that the American continent was discovered by Columbus in 1492," Erdogan said. "In fact, Muslim sailors reached the American continent 314 years before Columbus, in 1178."
Some say it was Columbus, Muslims say it was one of their own (but they
don't know 'who') that discovered America
Does Erdrogan have proof?  Let's just say that he has as much proof as President Obama has -- and we will tread softly on the feelings of Muslims here at Virtual Mirage, because they are easily bruised. If I wasn't delicate about it, the Religion of Peace would declare jihad on me -- oh, they already have. Never mind. I forgot, I'm an American and live in "the Great Satan".

If you'll reflect back to last week's post about Kennewick Man (link), it's relatively clear these days that people have been crossing the Atlantic and Pacific for at least the past 9,000 years, as they were want to do. The technology has been in place at least that long. So there's nothing to suggest that rag heads didn't cross the ocean to the Americas at some point.

So why do these comments by President Obama and Prime Minister Erdogan rise to the level of being blog-worthy? Maybe because they were intended to be obnoxious.

Obama-the-Muslim, still hasn't discovered
America

  1. OK, let's say that Muslims discovered America in 1178.

    So what?

    1. That's my point. I don't cherish Italians because of Columbus and whether Muslims did or didn't, the Vikings beat them to the punch, and Kennewick man beat them by 10,000 years.

      It's just Obama trying to twist the knife with his Muslimness, knowing that people find him and his antics disgusting.

  2. Muslimness? Muslimishness? Muslimocity? Muslimification?

    One of those has got to be a word.

    At any rate, Obama's certainly a Muslimophile.

  5. But I'm confused. Someone called "Hussein" is a Muslim?

    1. He gravitates toward "Black Liberation Theology", which teaches a message which contextualizes Christianity in an attempt to help American Africans overcome oppression. Black liberation theology seeks to liberate people of color from multiple forms of political, social, economic, and religious subjugation. It offers "a rational study of the being of God in the world in light of the existential situation of an oppressed community, and also relies on Islamic dogma, which recognized Christianity and Christ in a non-spiritual sense.

      Ok, he's also a Muslim. Can you be both? Obviously.

    2. Don't forget that liberation theology is driven by socialism, so that fits into Obama's overall view of the world. Islamism has adopted liberation ideals and mixed them with their own particular and destructive means to an end.

    3. Black Liberation Theology relies on Marx primarily - which may dismay any thinking members (hahaha - no, of course there aren't any) because the only Marxist dictatorships remaining are Cuba, North Korea and Myanmar (Burma) -- garden spots all. It's a failed dogma, carried on dutifully by Rev. Wright and the rest of the Black Liberationists.

    4. Yes, Marx was the architect, but I think that Black Liberation Theology takes into account the ideals that Lenin and Stalin introduced - especially the ideals of leading stupid people into socialism by means of a strong (and totalitarian) party leader.

      That seems to be the Obama model, more reminiscent of Lenin and Stalin, than of the rabid preachers who "lead" the Black community, like Sharpton.

      And dang, that does indeed fit nicely with the Islamist version of socialism/fascism.

    5. And there is no wonder that Barack found a home there for 21 years, found his mate, Michelle, etc.
