Obama’s conversion to Islam

It’s done with Photoshop

Here’s the first image I came across. It shows Obama holding a sign saying “Islam will dominate the world.”

Fake photo of Barack Obama holding pro-Islam sigh

It’s an obvious paste-up job. Note that the light comes from the left on the hands, but from the right on the face. Obama’s head has a white seam around it too. The facial image seems to be higher resolution than the hands.

Here’s the original.

Man holding pro-Islam sign

The next one has a bit better quality.

Photo of Obama dresses as Osama Bin Laden

But it is obviously derived with a little help from an original photo of Osama Bin Laden and a computer paint program.

photo of Osama bin Laden used to make fake Obama image

So that is how one converts Obama to Islam.

    There are a zillion photos on the web showing Obama is a muslim. Everyone knows they are photoshopped. I’m more interested in commenting on this:

    It’s a well documented fact that Obama lived in a Muslim country as a child and that he counts Muslims among his ancestors. Obama is president of all Americans, not just the Christian ones, and it is, in my view, appropriate for him to reach out them, as well as he has reached out to Christians. Obama is a world leader, not just the leader of a majority Christian country.

    The problem that I have with videos like the one you mention, is that they mislead by showing only one side of Obama. Where’s the footage of Obama singing “Amazing Grace”?

    RW’s love to claim he was “born Muslim”, as if a toddler has religious faith, or as if a religion was a biological trait (whether “choosing a religion” is a conscious choice is another issue of course). Come to think of it, it echoes ugly racial politics – first, identify “Islam” as “the enemy”, then claim people are basically born this way to justify (pseudo-)race-based oppression.

    And even if he were, so what?

    (As I am often fond of remarking here.)

    “john” fails to realize that there is no love lost between Muslims, between, say, sunni and shiite.

    Even if Obama followed the Muslim faith (which he doesn’t) that would still mean nothing in terms of geopolitical loyalties.

    Godwin notwithstanding, the ever convenient Hitler was raised by a devout Catholic mother, was baptized as an infant and confirmed at age 15 — and so what?

    This is ultimately a moronic point, that only gerbils can find of interest.

    The American far right’s love affair with Vladimr Putin might take a hit after Putin’s visit to Iran ths week.
    Putin re-initiated selling uranium to Iran and presented Grand Ayatollah Khamenei with a copy of the Koran.

    The ones that really crack me up are the ones who get all panicky about being forced to abide by Muslim rules, and then say Obama has to be a Muslim because that’s the Muslim rule.

    John, if I had the editing skills that guy did, I could make a video with your own words proving you’re a Muslim.

    You severely underestimate the wingnuts’ will and ability to ignore conflicting information. Their hatred of the black guy in the White House is just too big, they would cheer for Hitler if he were around and bashing Obama.

    That assumes that the right-wing types who think Putin is the best thing since sliced bread actually care about that sort of story. In my experience, they don’t. They’re so busy hating Obama that they haven’t the will to ask important questions about Putin, or even to apply anything like the same standard to Putin that they do to Obama. After all, they’re often the same people who think Obama wants to serve a third term, yet they don’t care that Putin dodged Russia’s laws on Presidents serving no more than two consecutive terms by having Medvedev serve a term as President with Putin as PM, before then becoming President a third time.

    I think that the people behind a video entitled “Obama Admits he is a Muslim” that opens with a disclaimer that “The writers, producers, editors, and publishers of this video are not stating, claiming or implying that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim, or that Obama himself claimed or admitted to being a Muslim” are either lying in the title of the video, or in the “legal disclaimer.”

    Much of Obama’s success has been in playing the comelian. He’s been white when it suited him , black when convenient. Christian in the church, Muslim when bowing to Saudi’s. Southern when in the South, Northern when in NY. When he was in Utah he simply couldn’t wait to get out of here.. Lol.

    Obama has been the most well financed in our history I believe to the tune of 8 Trillion. To not be a success after that is credible in my opinion of how important our Constitution is. I can hardly imagine the difficulty in leading after Obama’s wreck comes home to be faced. Obama has increased the debt by about $70,000 per person. Being sold into slavery is an understatement of what’s happened in 7 short years.

    About the only thing Obama isn’t is ELIGIBLE by the Standard of the U.S. Constitution. Oddly enough , that has meant less and less to Americans and reading from a teleprompter more and more.

    @Doc [ Obama is a world leader ] I thought this was the USA?

    I would think that a candidate for President would know how to spell chameleon.

    the ability to act in a way where people can identify with you is certainly one that can help a person get elected.

    Hey, look at this way: it’s all upside for you. First of all, Obama will never hold elective office again. Second, if a case of yours ever does make its way to SCOTUS, both Chief Justice Obama and Associate Justice Obama will almost certainly have to recuse themselves.

    Judy from what language does “comelian” come from, certainly not English, or any of the others I am familiar with. Oddly also does not appear in the Idiot Judy to English dictionary either. So pray enlighten us.

    Except, of course, that he is.

    And yes, we understand that you reeeeeeeally need to make believe that he isn’t in order to maintain any semblance of self-importance.

    CRJOddly enough , that has meant less and less to Americans

    The fact that you birthers are completely irrelevant to the majority of the US Public, is an attestation to their love of the Constitution.

    If the US Public actually started to consider of seditious birtherism worthy of note, I would be concerned.

    I would expect a presidential candidate to realize that the majority of our national debt is the result of programs from the Bush administration (Medicare part D, the economic downturn, Bush tax cuts, TARP and two wars). President Obama has cut the deficit more than any other president in US history. Do you mean to say that you will discontinue the practice of reducing the deficit should you be elected?

    This chart:

    Shows that about 1/3 of the deficit balloon was due to the recession, but the major component was the Bush tax cuts.

    Another charts site that I just found: Politics That Work

    This is an interesting chart: Change in Debt as a Percentage of GDP by the Party Controlling the Federal Government

    “We should be somewhat cautious about relying too heavily on the “All Republican” number as there have only been six years since 1961 when the Republicans had control of both the legislature and the executive branch, but it is worth noting that the federal debt has never gone down relative to GDP during an all Republican year.
