President Obama has ordered numerous drone strikes on four Islamic countries, but he is still under heavy suspicion by Sandy Rios, a radio host for the American Family Association.
Rios tried to convince her listeners on Wednesday of President Obama’s pro-Muslim sympathies. She dug up his past when he was taken to Indonesia by his father, who enrolled him in a Muslim school as a small boy, notes RightWingWatch.org (audio below).
While Rios could not say for sure if Obama was a full-fledged Muslim, she did conclude: “I will dispute the fact that he is a follower of Jesus Christ, or he would not embrace and advance the immorality that he does.”
"We know that he has recited the Muslim call to prayer beautifully to a New York Times reporter, it’s Nicholas Kristof I believe, and as I understand it, when you recite that prayer, you state it over and over, that’s actually, that is how you become a Muslim," claimed Rios, who self-identifies as a Christian.
Rios then went after Obama's family tree, a tactic that was used repeatedly in 2008 by Republicans.
"Now, he was registered as a Muslim in Indonesia when he was a kid, through his step-father who was a Muslim, and we know that many of his family members in Kenya are Muslim. But I think, you know, he claims he’s a Christian. I dispute that claim. I will dispute that. I will not affirm that he’s Muslim. I will dispute the fact that he is a follower of Jesus Christ, or he would not embrace and advance the immorality that he does," said Rios.
Rios did not provide proof of this "immorality" that Obama supposedly advances. Nor was she able to prove that he is not a Christian, which he self-identifies as.
