Obama – We get it, you’re not Muslim

A lot of people have already said what there is to say about Obama vehemently denying that he’s Muslim.

Fine, he’s not Muslim but the way he is going about it is leaving a bit of a bad taste to those of us who are Muslim.

Naomi Klein, of No Logo and Shock Doctrine fame, has an article up on The Nation with her two cents regarding this topic:

Obama, Being Called a Muslim Is Not a Smear

“Of course Obama must correct the record, but he doesn’t have to stop there. What is disturbing about the campaign’s response is that it leaves unchallenged the disgraceful and racist premise behind the entire “Muslim smear”: that being Muslim is de facto a source of shame. Obama’s supporters often say they are being “Swiftboated,” casually accepting the idea that being accused of Muslimhood is tantamount to being accused of treason.”

It’s a good article. Check it out.
