Right Wing Email Lie of the Day- Obama Funding Mosques


Looks like there has been another spam run of this tripe from the far right. The evil (muslim) Obama is using taxpayer dollars to fund the rebuilding of mosques.

Well, true to an extend. Indeed, it happening. As is, to a larger extent, the funding of rebuilding churches and temples. Under a state department program put together by congress in 2000 under Bill Clinton, and announced by George Bush.

The “Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation” has provided funding (33 million) for more then 700 cultural heritage sites in more then 100 countries. Beyong religious sites it has also funded restoratin/preservation of pridges, art, ruins, etc. US ambassadors around the globe apply for funds to help preserve critical heritage sites.

And if one digs a little deeper, they will find that within regions, the funding for churches and or temples always exceeds that as mosques.

But of course- facts don’t matter to the far right narrative- the narrative that Obama is a muslim, and bends over backwards for islamic causes. Despite the facts showing otherwise.

And so- when you go the polls, or think of doing so, in 7 weeks remember- do you want to allow those ignorant enoughto believe this, or disingenuous enough to put it out there in the first place, to be picking the leader of our nation?

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
