Gutfeld: White House declining to release photos demonstrates Islamophobia

Is the Obama White House being hypocritical by declining to release photographic evidence of Osama bin Laden’s killing, citing concerns about the Muslim world’s reaction?

On his Thursday morning broadcast on the Fox News Channel, “Red Eye” host Greg Gutfeld questioned President Barack Obama’s reasoning during his “Gregalogue” segment – saying that same logic could be applied to doing almost anything.

“I get it,” he said. “The decision was based on placating extremists instead of conspiracy freaks. I get it. Terrorists are scarier than truthers, but it is wrong. The argument that the photo would piss off people who might then try to kill Americans bugs me. I mean, you could use the same argument for stopping all human activity, including killing bin Laden. I’m sure that pissed off extremists, as does our friendship with Israel, our love for dogs and music by the Black Eyed Peas.”

Noting White House Press Secretary Tim Carney’s explanation, Gutfeld questioned why such a mindset doesn’t constitute Islamophobia – a fear of Muslims, or how they might react — especially given this is an administration that has preached against such fear.

“So, how will not releasing the photo affect conspiracy nuts?” he continued. “Carney said they’re going to think that way no matter how much evidence you give them. The photos won’t make any difference. But that same conclusion applies to extremists. Photos won’t matter to them either because they hate us already. So I’m thinking there’s some Islamophobia hiding in this decision, a fear of Muslims or rather a fear of offending them. But it is a mistake to conflate reasonable Muslims with radicals who want to kill us — an error mind you that is often blamed on the right, but here it is at the White House.”

The “Red Eye” host added that not releasing any photos offers a reverence to bin Laden that elevates him to a Muslim leader.

“Carney said bin Laden was a mass murderer and not a Muslim leader, but this decision today seems to say otherwise,” he continued. “By the way, I have no doubt we got bin Laden, but I just want our enemies to know we did too. Basically the picture is the price tag.”

    ISLAMOPHOBIA?…or…ISLAMOPHILIA?…your call,take a pick.

    The current adminstration looks very much in favour of the terrorist spectrum rather than anything else.

    Strange?…walk with me;

    WHAT FOLLOWS IS ALL OVER THE ENTIRE NET;
    =========================================
    Inflamatory? , is that it?…for real?,…well, here is the news, THOSE ASSASSINS ARE ALRADY INFLAMED….THEY HAD BEEN KILLING AMONG THEMSELVES , FOR CENTURIES…are they not?,… AND NOW THAY ARE EXPANDING THEIR KILLING ABOROAD THROUGH THE WHOLE BALSTED WORLD…correct on that one?….yes?…or…no?

    Do they need an excuse to continue their nefarious and insidious deeds?….yes?…or…no?

    This current admininstration (THE OBAMA GANG) is a CONGLOMERATE OF ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE / ENEMIES OF THE ESTATE..in others words A PACK OF TRAITORS! – I call it as it is – ….
    …a group TERRORIST-FRIENDLY ORIENTED with a MASTER SABOTAGE AGENDA AGAINST OUR COUNTRY FOR TOTAL OBLITERATION OF THE AMERICAN SYSTEM…and we the american public know that and they(THE OBAMA GANG) KNOW THAT WE KNOW ABOUT THEIR INSIDIOUS AND NEFARIOUS PLANS!….is this correct?….YES?…or…NO?

    Perhaps you will dance around the question – trying to ‘explain’ – rather than to answer it straight.

    Others simple questions;

    DO ISLAMIC-MUSLIM ERRATICAL EXTREMIST ASSASSINS BURN USA FLAGS AND BILBOARDS WITH THE FACES OF USA OFFICIALS (LIKE PRES BUSH)?….YES?…OR…NO?

    DO THEY BURN BIBLES?….YES?…or…NO?

    DO THEY BURN PEOPLE IN THEIR OWN BACKYARDS,…THERE IN THE MIDDLE-EAST,… AND THROUGH THE ENTIRE WOLRD (THE SO CALLED ‘INFIDELS’ AND THEIR VERY OWN WOMEN TOO)?…YES?…or…NO?

    I am sure that to answer these questions straigh to the point it could represent the loose of a kidney or an explosion of the pancreas, or a heart attack…or everything all at once.

    IN FACT, THAT! is exactly what the ISLAMIC-MUSLIM ETREMIST FUNDAMENTALIST ASSASSINS DO ON DAILY BASIS…are they not?

    EVIDENTLY THIS IS A CLEAR AND OPEN WAR, IT IS A FIGHT TO THE DEATH – IS THEM OR US….and THAT! is reality…is it not?

    Actually those BLASTED ISLAMIC-MUSLIM EXTREMIST JIHADDIST ASSASSINS are in ETERNAL PRE-RETALIATION AGAINST OUR COUNTRY AND TO ANY OTHER COUNTRY THAT PROMOTES FREEDOM AND/OR DOES NOT CONCCOUR WITH THEIR IDEOLOGY.
    THEY ARE KILLNG WITHOUT PROVOCATION …THEY CAME HERE FIRST!… WE DID NOT GO THERE..is that correct?

    Koran burning outrage – Saudi government shreds Bibles(
    http://deathby1000papercuts.com/2010/09/koran-burning-outrage-saudi-goverment-shreds-confiscated-bibles/
    ======================
    Someone(s) out there may say – and will say – that burning/destroying Koran books will inflame the ISLAMIC-MUSLIM COMMUNITY..and as result, WE (our country and the rest of the free world) will be in dnager for more animosity; and attacks will ensue against american and her associates.

    Well, want to know something? THE ENEMIES OF OUR COUNTRY AND ALLIES DO NOT NEED ANY MORE MOTIVATIONS NOR ANY MORE EXCUSES TO TRY TO BLOW US OUT THE PLANET.

    THOSE ERRATICAL SILAMIC-MUSLIM FANATIC ASSASSINS JIHADDIST ARE ALREADY – SINCE LONG LONG TIME AGO PLOTING AND KILLING AND DESTRYOING RIGHT AND LEFT IN A VERY RUTHLESS WAY …are they not?

    You see, they do not not need any encouragement to be low-life…their KILLING DNA IS AT FULL THROTTLE GEAR…they do not need…”to be offended”…THEY ARE ALREADY “OFFENDED”…

    A simple question: – DO THOSE ERRATICAL ISLAMIC-MUSLIM EXTREMIST FANATIC ASSASINS BURN AMERICAN FALGS, BIBLES, PEOPLE (even their own…specially women) in their own backyard and all over the world?….YES?…or…NO?

    The way I see it,.. we get their hate no matter what,… even after Mr Obama went virtually around the world apologizing and “kissing their feet”(sort of speak..altough I can certainly say something stronger here)…it seems to me that they (OUR ENEMIES) do not have enough until we all are wiped-out from the face of the planet.

    So if they feel bad / insulted / offended / uncomfortable …if we burn a book or two from them…well my friends….BLAST THAT!….IF THEY CANNOT TAKE IT OR IF THEY DO NOT LIKE IT…in others words…TOUGH…THEY CAN STUFF IT!

    What they can do – ALL OF THEM – , very easily , is to go there to their own original habitat – THE MIDDLE EAST – kill and destroy AMONG THEMSELVES as they had been doing for countless generations,..and stay there in the fight until they become pulp ,,,,and WHOEVER LIKES THEM , they can go there with them and participate in the task.

    It looks that SEN KERRY, AND CO. – ALL THOSE ERRATICAL ASSASSINS SUPPORTERS -, they don’t get it yet…is a FIGHT TO THE DEATH …IS THEM OR US….and as for me,… and many many true red blod americans, the platform is …”WE WIN YOU LOOSE”…CASE CLOSED!

    From where I stand since they want to destroy us all….so this is simple; LET’S PULVERIZE THEM ALL!..THEY ARE THE BAD GUYS , THEY GO…it is a very straigh tforward thing.

    Bottom line. THEY ARE ALREADY TOTALLY INFLAMED!

    Take it or leave it…opinions welcome.

    FOX needs to put Gutfeld in prime time. His show is too good and too funny to be wasted at 3E and 2C.
    I think he could compete with Stewart. Put Greta on at 2 or 3.

    • russ311

      Better yet, I think, is to do Red Eye at 10pm est and put Greta on at the 7pm est slot in place of Shepard Smith’s second live broadcast of the day.

      Why is Smith on anyway? All he is doing is an immediate re-reading of the Special Report w/Bret Baer just to inflect his own editorializing with his tone of voice and facial expressions into the mix.

      O’Reilly may not like Greta on ahead of him, but hey, anything reported on FOX ahead of him he still claims credit for as his scoop just the same. Like he did with Rep. King having making a statement first at 7am on Fox & Friends, which was repeated all day long on FOX and again on The Factor, when O’Reilly professes it was the first he heard that waterboarding led to Osama bin Laden’s death then claimed for two days now it was, therefore, his scoop. /rolleyes

      Of course, Red Eye would need a new title for an earlier hour, maybe just re-name the entire show The Gregalogue.

      • bigmamas

        Great idea….Shep is O’Reilly light. Total pompous ass that takes himself way to seriously. I’ve asked for years why he has 2 shows. Now I just turn it off when Shep is on, get tired of his editoralizing on what’s supposed to be a news show. Gutfield puts a funny spin on the news.

        • russ311

          You and bozsbusiness are absolutely right. Red Eye should be advanced to the primetime lineup. I stay up too often to catch it at 3am, but otherwise will dvr it. I would rather catch it in a normal course of viewing though like I suggested. Cheers bigmamas.

    It sure didn’t bother the neo-comms when they put the pictures of Abu-Grahib on the front page of the NY slimes 32 days in a row. And that was just college hi jinx! Speaking of the slimes, the US knew exactly where obl was until the slimes announced the US was tracking him via his cell phone. So guess what happens next? No more cell phone!
    The whole concept of things like this recruiting more terrorists is total nonsense. They don’t need a reason to hate the US. They are just looking for any excuse. It’s also possible that had clinton been paying attention to foriegn policy instead of having monicas face in his lap, none of this may have happened.

  • Jamo

    I love this perspective. THey are the Islamophobes! They’re terrified of Islam. Does that suggest to you that THEY believe Islam to be the religon of peace?
    Either that, or there’s someting fishy going on.

    The Administration says, with a straight face, that we should believe them because they really REALLY mean it.

    Frankly, after two years of constant spin and outright lies, I would feel compelled to verify it if this administration said it was May 5th, that the sky is blue and the grass is green.

    • notalone

      You are exactly right. This so called leader that we are stuck with is a pathological liar and the entire circle of corruption that surrounds him.
