No Fireside Chats from Obama

Charles Hurt's column about Obama's lecturing of Americans says what we've been saying for weeks now:

"Why, dirty Americans, do you hate people from exotic, war-torn places? Why do you despise other cultures? Why do you so hate freedom of religion?
Or, as President Obama wonders, why are you all so Islamophobic?
And don’t you dare say it’s because Islamofascists just killed 130 innocents enjoying life in Paris last week!
And don’t you dare say it is because Islamofascists flew airliners packed with innocents into the Pentagon and twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001!
First of all, it is just a coincidence that all these terrorists were Muslim and openly seeking to advance their twisted religious views on all the world. And, anyway, 9/11 is ancient history now.
The threat has been 'contained.'
No, these attackers are all just angry about being left out of prosperity and have such a hard time finding girlfriends. Nothing to do with religion.
And so, at times like these, when Americans get a little twitchy about letting 10,000 Syrians into the country without thorough background checks, it is you, you stupid, racist Americans who shall be lectured."

Read it for yourself.  It's a far cry from FDR's comforting fireside chats, isn't it?

(As seen at today.)
