My two cents on the “Crusades” comment by Mr. Obama

If you have looked through my blog you will see that I have compared the actions of the Crusades to be like the events being done by ISIS (ISIL) and the other groups that behave in a like manner to them.
Here is where Mr. Obama messed up though. The Crusades took place out of ignorance of the common people. A lack of knowledge of the true meaning and understanding of the teaching found within the Bible. Why? Because only the rich could even afford a copy of a Bible and members of the church. It must also be stated that in many cases the rich and the church were one and the same at that time also due to no mass knowledge of the Bible.
This is something that Mr. Obama should have stated when making his remarks. I can only speculate why he did not.
Now he also mentioned slavery. Now this one thing many do not like to comment about. Mainly due again to ignorance on the topic. Most have a fantasy image of slavery. They believe it only occurred within the United States. Yet it is shown within the Bible. It is also shown that many that came to colonize this nation no matter their color came over here as slaves. At first they were what is called indentured slaves. They would pay off their debt, the cost of the trip here, and then they would be free to colonize.
This soon become unprofitable and so then the import of slaves began. Note the wording here the “import of” this means they were already slaves. In fact most slave owner outside of this nation were of the same race as those that were their “property.” Now in no means am I making excuses for slavery. It is wrong and something that should never be, but are you aware there is slavery going on at this very moment in Africa in the Pacific Rim nations? Most if it is sex slaves, but there is still other types being done.
It has become the mainstay of those on the left to follow this false narrative of theirs that the “white” oppressors wish to continue to keep the “blacks” down. When in reality most that say this are extremely rich and well off. Their intent is to keep the poor, poor and thus make themselves rich and take or maintain control of the poor by making them believe these lies. This goes across party lines, but if you really do your research you will find that there are more rich Democrats than there are Republicans.
It is speeches like the one made by Mr. Obama that wish to divide this nation help to bring about a government that will allow the rich and elite to dictate to those that are poor and uneducated.
It is through government make policies like Obamacare and Common Core which is part of the plan to dumb down the average citizen of the United States and keep them dependent upon the rich, I mean government.
It is a plan that is working. Each year this nation becomes more and more ignorant, while the few especially those on the left just sit back and watch it happen as they rake in money given to them by corrupt and self-serving career politicians. The thing is there are many who are fighting this, but it is not enough. Most set about watching sports the new modern version of the gladiators (football, baseball, basketball, and hockey) of the Roman Empire, a tool used heavily by the dictators of Roman to make their populous ignorant and subdued through the use of entertaining distraction, which worked for hundreds of years.
Then came Christianity, through the teaching of Jesus Christ the Son of God. This changed things, but not enough. Because in time those in power and those in control of the knowledge perverted it for their own purpose and greed. It is this which resulted in the Crusades. It seems to follow a cycle that occurs nearly every thousand years.
Well in today’s society we are experiencing the same type of ignorance and it is due to few reading and understanding the Bible or the Qur’an. Both religions which came from Abraham teach peace, both have their difference and would take too long to explain. I will say this, maybe out of personal prejudice I don’t know, I would rather all turn to God through the word of the Bible and the lessons taught us by Jesus Christ.
But if not, I would rather all read FULLY their holy books and see that actions committed either one thousand years ago or even one hundred and fifty years ago is not something to compare to the actions and behavior of ISIS (ISIL) now. The sins of the past are the sin that those that lived that past must face. This sins of today are ours to face now, and what is worse in this situation we have enough information at our disposal to not be ignorant, yet we most are and by their own choice. We must face up to sins committed now, today. Our own personal sins or those committed by people that do horrific acts like what was done to the Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kassasbeh. It is our responsibility not only to learn the Bible to up hold all that is good and glorious within to the point of removing those terrorist that wish to destroy the world and impose their jaded values upon not only us but our children and grandchildren.
Do we wish to repeat the acts that cause millions to die in World War II? Well at this time we are. There are many in power at this time that echo history through not only their actions, but their words. Their desire to maintain peace at nearly any cost resulted in horrific deaths that could have been avoided. Instead six million Jews and an additional seven million of different nationalities and religious believes Like Christianity and Muslim died in concentration camps through Eastern Europe. Stop it now, not when it is too late and instead of millions is it billions that die. If you do not learn from history you are destine to repeat it and at this time we are.
