Obama Doesn't Like Muslims???

| Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

wenn5112364.jpg

On Monday, two Muslim women at Barack Obama's rally in Detroit, MI were not allowed by campaign volunteers to sit behind the podium.

Both rejections were made in separate instances and by different volunteers.

The staff on hand were trying to prevent the women's headscarves from appearing on television or in photographs with Obama.

Michigan has one of the largest Muslim and Arab populations in the United States, so this is clearly not sitting well with many Muslim supporters.

Obama has even vigorously denied rumors that he is Muslim, though occasionally adds that he means no disrespect to Islam. But the denials seem to some to be implying that there is something wrong with the Muslim faith.

Hebba Aref, a lawyer who lives near Detroit was denied a seat and says, "I was coming to support him, and I felt like I was discriminated against by the very person who was supposed to be bringing this change, who I could really relate to. The message that I thought was delivered to us was that they do not want him associated with Muslims or Muslim supporters."

A volunteer asked three of Aref's friends if they would like to sit behind the stage. The men stated they would, but mentioned they were at the rally with some friends.

The volunteer, an African American woman in her mid-20s, asked if their friends looked and were dressed like the men, who were all light skinned and wearing suits. One of the men mentioned that their friend (Aref) was wearing a headscarf with her suit.

That's when Aref's friend says that the volunteer, "explained to me that because of the political climate and what's going on in the world and what's going on with Muslim Americans, it's not good for [Aref] to be seen on TV or associated with Obama."

As for the second incident, that occurred while waiting in line, two of Shimaa Abdelfadeel's non-Muslim friends were ahead of her. A volunteer approached them and asked if they wanted to be seated in the special section behind Obama. The friends said yes and asked for Shimaa to come along.

That's when the volunteer told them their friend would need to take the headscarf off or stay out of the special section. The friends declined the invite.

When Shimaa confronted the volunteer she was told, "We're not letting anyone with anything on their heads like baseball [caps] or scarves sit behind the stage. It has nothing to do with your religion!"

Although photographs of the event show men with hats seated in the section behind Obama and former VP Al Gore.

Since the incident, the campaign has apologized to the women. However, the two Obama supporters say they feel betrayed by their treatment.

Bill Burton, Obama's spokesman, says, "This is of course not the policy of the campaign. It is offensive and counter to Obama's commitment to bring Americans together and simply not the kind of campaign we run. We sincerely apologize for the behavior of these volunteers."

When in doubt, blame someone else.

Though maybe this time it was the volunteers. Photographs from a Seattle rally earlier this year show a couple in Muslim clothing sitting behind Obama.

Next time, better screen your volunteers better.

    i highly doubt he doesnt like muslims, your caption is misleading. He is probably trying to separate himself from the stereotype that he is muslim. if you hadnt noticed dumbasses see a connection between osama and obama.

    Wow he just cant win now can he? If those women would have been behind him and been in the photograph, everyone would have lost their damn minds saying that he was a muslim and such, and yet when his advisors try to prevent the situation from happening ( not saying that they were correct in their judgement) he gets slammed for being racists against muslisms? WTF?! America is losing their damn minds.

    A few fucked up Muslims fucked it up for all Muslims. The Muslims that I know are very hard working, giving, and spiritual people. They do not have a violent bone in their being.

    I think they do it so that it can't add fire to the conservative debate that Obama is muslim. I don't think he has anything against muslims but if people think that he is muslim (and if there are muslim supporters behind him on camera) he won't win in November, period. It's stupid how ignorant coservatives in America are. Like seriously people, just because Obama's Africa last name happens to rhyme with Osama doesn't make him a radical muslim or a supporter of terrorists!

    BS!!!!!!!!! that is the most BS fake convo they could have possibly come up with. why would someone possibly respond by saying "well……do they look like you???? cuz that's the only way we'll let them sit behind him…if they're white and well-dressed."

    This has nothing to do with Obama directly. I'm sure Obama is smarter than to do something like that. But, I am sure the volunteers were just trying to protect Obama who has been criticized by RACISTS/Islamophobes for his "Muslim" name and supposed previous associations with Islam.

    seriously perez, it's as though you want a john mccain to win.

    go ahead and act like the right-wing media wouldn't show a clip of two muslim women sitting behind barack obama alll day every day until the election. be serious about the world we live in, and get a grip on the fact that you made a BAD CALL and that hillary clinton LOST.

    you are a figure in media, BUT NOT A JOURNALIST. you have a RESPONSIBILITY to your community. this is shameful behavior coming from a gay man.

    what i think is that you know that your star is fading, and so you're turning yourself into an ann coulter type. LAME. accept your irrelevance.

  33. britt says – reply to this

    if that happened, then that's terrible.
    but on the whole issue of obama maybe being muslim, does it matter?
    it's just religion, and people can believe whatever they want to.

  34. sydne says – reply to this

    That's too bad. You know if they were sitting behind him the Republicans would be all over it, and you know Hannity and Rush would totally exploit it. I think he's in a total Catch-22.

  35. Sick says – reply to this


    35

    JESUS CHRIST!!!! If he associates with Muslim's, he's Muslim. If they don't allow them to sit with him, he's a bigot. NO WONDER THIS WORLD IS SO FUCKED UP, especially with fucking pieces of shit like Perez Hilton adding fuel to every type of fire there is.

    that would be to close to home. All you have to do is listen to the hate of his mentors and their "christian" churches. They all hate America!

  37. Lizz says – reply to this


    37

    I think this is a time when you're damned if you do, damned if you don't. It would appear that this volunteers themselves, and not the official campaign, did not do the right thing (and FYI, volunteers typically are not screened for racism). Additionally, unless there is evidence that the campaign did indeed refuse to seat Muslims on stage, it is irresponsible to blame the official campaign for the actions of one person. I understand the use of sensationalism for dramatic effect but the title "Obama Doesn't Like Muslims???" is misleading and, IMHO, places you dangerously close to the FoxNews-outlets of this world.

    Come on, Perez, you are better then that! I'm a loyal reader and I love you…

    Obama, you can't be being racist, when your ancestors were victims of the same thing… But i THINK MUSLIMS SHOULD UNDERSTAND.. he wants to convince ingorant white people he isn't muslim, im sure he loves indian and pakistan people…
    Obama fan 2008..

    White people will change their minds quick if they saw a headscarf.. OBAMA isn't a racist, I believe I think he wants to slowly introduce people of muslim faith to america.. so that they can accept them…

    You should not start shit like this by captioning it "Obama Does Not Like Muslims". That is really irresponsible. His family in Africa are mostly Muslim. You know as well as I do that he has good reason for not wanting them to sit directly behind him. The Republican shit party will eat him alive.

  43. ya kn says – reply to this


    43

    i HIGHLY doubt that he doesnt like Muslims….He is probably just being cautious because there are some really ignorant people in this world trying to say he is a muslim….and trying to relate him to friekin Osama. People should really educate themselves before spreading lies about people because you only make yourself look dumb.

  44. jay says – reply to this

    He's damned if does and damned if he doesn't. If those people were sitting behind him… all of America would be talking about how there were Muslims sitting behind Obama. Who cares if he is muslim or not… that should not effect your vote.

    I'm voting Obama!

    . . .and if they would of shown them people would have their panties in a bundle again that he's secretly a Muslim.

    To clarify, I also believe Obama is a filthy Muslim.

  48. Mitch says – reply to this


    48

    I wouldn't be too harsh on these volunteers. This is a tough climate, and you know that once those pictures were out there, bill O and Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh would turn it all around and say that this was some Obama family reunion or something stupid. We all know this is the way the game is played.

    And the fact is that people who quit their jobs or take the day off to volunteer full time to get someone elected President of the United States desperately want that candidate to win, not come in second. I believe Barack Obama would not have tolerated that from his volunteers, but I also believe that the volunteers probably did what they thought was the best thing for the campaign. I'll agree that it was shallow, but this will blow over. Having that picture out there might not have.

  49. Yak says – reply to this


    49

    Well if that is true it's not because he doesn't like Muslims (although who does?) it's because half of the people in the hillbilly states like Virginia and Arkansas think he IS a Muslim and if he wants to get elected he has to disassociate himself with anything "Muslim" like. It's due to the ignorant masses that this action needs to be taken.



  50. 50

    its all just to keep the dimwitted (aka "conservative" bible thumpers) from persisting in their rumors that he is a muslim

    I agree with the decision. WHY? Because the rightwingers would have used this against HIM, and would have implemented fear. I doubt he knew anything about what is volunteers did, but the decision was needed! And all those who say "that isn't right" are the same ones who say "Obama is a Muslim"

  55. kath says – reply to this


    55

    Think of it this way: Obama already has enough trouble with his name and having people associate him with Islam. A lot of Americans have problems with Islam (I'm not condoning this, its just a fact). If Obama wants to win, then he needs to disassociate himself with Islam. I'm not saying its right, its just true. Just imagine some backwoods hick who sees someone with a headscarf sitting behind him. They won't vote for him! I bet his campaign did this on purpose. Its a sad truth, but he doesn't have much choice. Those women should just take one for the team if thats what it takes to get hime elected, since him winning will most likely be the best option for Muslim-Americans.

    Perez, you're such a jerk off - that caption is soooo misleading. It's because of people like you that these volunteers are trying to keep Muslim women wearing traditional head scarves out of the picture (on tv). Or did you forget that you're a recent Obama convert yourself? Do you not remember some of those disgusting posts you left about Obama back when you were on the Hillary bandwagon? If those women HAD appeared on tv, you would have been the first one to post it and say OBAMA LOVES MUSLIMS. You're already a faux celebrity, you don't need to stir the shit pot just to keep people visiting your site. When you were behind Hillary, you supported her 100%. Then her fat ass and her big ego fell, and now you're still trying to bash Obama even though you claim to support him…. go figure…

    hey muckraker!
    Why make inflammatory title like that to fire up your readers who jump to conclusions faster than you set them up? Especially when you state it's not true within the article! This isn't the roaring 20s anymore, and you can't just make up highly reactive shit just to sell your site like the muckrakers of yore sold their smutty newspapers. I'm apalled that this unlevel headed bullshit is what journalism is devolving into.

    62

    Interesting that this post has barely any comments. It's quite sad actually that no one has anything to say about this! I do hope this was just a case of volunteers making their own assumptions and not in fact the policy of the Obama campaign. For a black man to extend a racist attitude towards another minority is very disheartening.

    doesn't that scream bush regime so controlled that he can't even be seen with a muslim for 2 bush reasons. one their idiot story the 2nd their idiot attack for oil & underground.
    i loathe what the bushes have done to that culture. they did it to the jewish last effort. a grandmother was jewish the family married muslim, asian & jewish. nobody told me i wasn't supposed to love my aunty pat. i laugh at that that's really funny. my family all love each other. if both muslim & jewsh middle east communities want to visit my family at any time from my grandparents, please visit. we were just loving & living & laughing. i'm afraid we would just have to knock your heads together nobody does the racial thing not since my grandparents.

    I am so sick of other etnicity always bitching and crying that no one treats them fairly, when in fact they are treated with more respect then most natives of the country. It's always about walking on egg shells now. If you say there is alot of Asians in Vancouver, you are racist. I think the racist card has been brought to a whole new level in the year 2000's and it's always being played. Oh you say something to me about what i wear, well you must me a idiot racist.

    This speaks nothing bad of him but of the American public. Americans are idiots who are using his name against him. Many times have I heard people saying they will not vote for him simply because of his name. I can't say I blame the volunteers because if the two young women had sat there, Americans (the ignorant ones) would use it against him and call him a Muslim terrorist and all sorts of other rubbish.

    They probably did that because crazy conservatives are trying to scare people to think that he's a muslim or terrorist. Conservatives would prob take the pictures from the rally and pass them around and say "see I told you he was muslim". This is so typical. They tried to say the JFK was a communist back when he was running for President.

    Glad to see some people (in the comments) have common sense… Obama does not want to be photographed with muslims because the republicans would misuse such a photo in every possible way to imply that Obama is muslim bla bla bla… you've heard the rumors of Obama being sworn in on the Quran and the effect the photo of Obama in traditional costume had… the republicans will use every tactic possible. Don't blame it on Obama, blame it on the republicans.

    if this had happened at a rally for McCain, all the liberals including you perez would be going NUTS
    everyone would get mad at mcCain and cause huge chaos saying it was his fault, he is racist and anti-muslim
    but when it happens to the liberal candidate, Obama of course its not his doing, its the volunteers.
    im not saying it was obamas doing, it may have been or it may have been the volunteers
    i jsut wish the liberals wouldnt be so hypocritical.

    So when is this big "change" going to take place??? I do not think your artilce is misleading at all. We are now seeing the real Obama…a liar! How can he exicute this big change if he is trying to wait for the world to be better…that is the biggest load of shit i have ever heard! That is an excuse! The world is not gonig to get better ! He should know all about discrimination, considering his age- fisrt hand. So why do it to the people you are going to run, to people woh are gonig to vote for you, to people who are putting their faith in you and your promise to help stop it? When you are encouraging it! What an idiot! I so hope he doesnt win it seems we will all be walking on egg shells and getting lied to.

    The media and republican spin is to blame. Obama wouldnt care if he was photographed with muslims. Its the journalists and republicans (aka Bill O'Reilly) who will spin that and cause alarm and incorrect information in the less informed voter/citizen

    Malik Obama, his brother, says Barack Hussien Obama is a Muslim. This was not reported widely when it came out the other day. Do a search on Google News for Malik Obama. Barack also lied when he said on his official campaign site that he never was a Muslim. Obama is a liar.

    The media have made being Muslim a crime, not Barack Obama. Muslims are not violent as a whole. There is a small sect of them who are fanatics and have declared jihad on us.

    If the media hadn't been trying to connect Obama with the violent Muslims, this wouldn't be a problem. And who really cares what religion he practices???

    Are you being a sore looser because Hilldog lost? Obviously this was a mistake where unpaid volunteers erred in judgement. He has THOUSANDS of volunteers and you cant possibly hold him accountable for every mistake that these people make. He obviously does not hate muslims and you are acting like Bill o fucking reilly by this heading and your 'interpretation'. Seriously, would you like John McCain for presedent? Maybe you should publically endorse him then. You sore fucking looser!

    obama is a racist, read about his religion he was a part of for 20 years, Black Liberation Theology, it is a racist religion/cult and Oprah used to be a part of it but she left the church because she realized it was hateful wayyy before the young impressionable obama "denounced" reverend wright. this is only the beginning of obamas hateful personality. take a look at who he really is and you will be surprised. DONT BE A SHEEP FOLLOWING THE HERD be aware and look at all the sides, if you do you will realize the type of man obama really is

    HAHAHA THE PROBLEM WITH MUSLIMS IS THEY ARE TERRORISTS…ACTUALLY THE PROBLEM IS IS THAT REPUBLICANS WOULD USE THOSE PICTURES AND DESTROY OBAMAS CREDIBILITY, PROBABLY AIR BRUSH IN SOME RPGS AND MAKE IT SEEM LIKE OBAMA WAS HOSTING A JIHAD RALLY. SO SMART MOVE ON OBAMA AND WHEN HE IS PRESIDENT HE CAN SAY ALLAH KALA BA ALL HE WANTS

    I am sorry that those supporters felt slighted but the Obama campaign cannot provide any visual ammunition for the right to use against him and his campaign. They are still having to disspell rumors that he is not a muslim.
    I mean how many times have you seen pics of Obama when he went to Kenya? Fox News would have had a field day with a photo of Obama with Muslim supporters in their Religious scarves behind him. I mean look at what happened with Dunkin Donuts and miss American Apple Pie chef Rachel Ray. Please….

    oh and after reading more of the comments
    i think its funny that this whole ordeal is STILL somehow the republicans fault
    that the republicans caused the volunteers to not allow muslims to be on tv with obama.
    liberals are kind of like men, they can never just admit they did one thing wrong but instead find a way to blame it on everyone else

    Land of the free, home of the brave MY ASS!! Land of the Middle Class White college grad, home of racism, intolerance and Christian extremism.

    So sad that the US seems to breeding xenophobes on such a huge scale. I have travelled all over the world and the US is THE most racist country I have been to, in terms of those in power being rich-white-christian lovers. What's the prob? Muslims, Jews and Christians believe in the SAME god (just a different name), the SAME deciples/prophets (Moses, Jesus, Abraham etc) and have the same values.

    And I think the only reason Obama feels he has to distance himself from Muslims (in itself a very sad thing as there are so many American Muslims supporting him) is due to the disgusting reaction of a large majority of Americans on the issue of Islam.

    Stick to what you know Perez!!!!! If Obama himself had denied those people the seats I would see an issue, but it was his VOLUNTEERS. OMFG……quit trying to make something out of nothing. If you would do your research Obama is a Mix of MANY nationalities. So I guess if he did that to every religion he didnt want to be linked with there would be a lot of other people. Sheesh. PEOPLE ARE NEVER SATISFIED. FIRST BUSH, NOW OBAMA? Obama has something great to offer this country and all people do is bitch about every little thing. If you have such an issue with our country and its leader MOVE THE FUCK OUT OF HERE. Im sure you all wouldnt be bitching about him if you only knew what it was like elsewhere. Ungrateful bitches!!!!!!!

    If the man isn't a muslim, he isn't a muslim. Stop trying to identify him as one. Whether he didn't want muslim looking people appearing with him, well that's another story.

    Hey there's some support politicians don't want.
