Obama Doctrine: NASA’s Mission to Muslims

Why are modern Liberals so anti Science?  JFK inspired us to step out into the New Frontier and reach for the stars.  President Obama has set his sights for NASA considerably lower as he tells NASA chief, Charles Bolden, his foremost priority should be to reach out to the Muslim world.

Bolden: I am here in the region – its sort of the first anniversary of President Barack Obama’s visit to Cairo – and his speech there when he gave what has now become known as Obama’s “Cairo Initiative” where he announced that he wanted this to become a new beginning of the relationship between the United States and the Muslim world. When I became the NASA Administrator – before I became the NASA Administrator – he charged me with three things: One was that he wanted me to re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, that he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with predominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.”

The Onion?  Remember, this is about making Muslims feel good about Islam’s non-existent contributions to human civilization, but it’s not “diplomatic”, it’s science! lol

  1. While I am not a booster like the Bamster, to be fair we must acknowledge, for example:
    1. Al-gebra is an Arabic word
    2. Muslim philosophers (in Spain and Constantinople, for example) not only kept alive classical philosophy, but expanded upon it themselves, and introduced previously unknown portions to Europe, e.g, the logica nova.
    3. Titans like Avicenna performed a similar role in the sciences generally, and medicine in particular.
    In order to be completely accurate, I suppose, we could point out that there is not much that is particularly Islamic about these facts. Which makes it even more of a tail-chaser for lil Barry to go around bowing and making people feel better about his Irish momma with the two Muslim husbands.

  2. That’s wonderful, Thorvald. And the caveman invented fire. Let’s reach out to them too.

  3. I will, if Rae Dawn Chong reprises her role as Ika in “Quest for Fire” (1981) and reaches back to me.

  4. […] his defense, he probably thinks the Arabs are just as stupid (see his NASA goodwill tour).  Our disagreements aren’t based on tangible– and often irreconcilable– […]
