U.S. criticized for absence in Paris unity rally

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – As France continues to cope in the aftermath of last week’s terror attacks. At least 3.7 seven million people, including world leaders, marched in unity rallies in Paris and other parts of the world.

The massive gathering in Paris is the largest rally in France’s history.

In North America similar rallies were held in Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Boston and Montreal, Canada.

Meantime the U.S. government was slammed by some lawmakers for not having a strong U.S. presence at the unity march in Paris.

The White House says President Barack Obama and Vice-President Joseph Biden could not attend for security reasons but says its regrets not sending top officials there.

“Some have asked whether the United States should have sent someone with a higher profile than the Ambassador to France,” said White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest. “And I think it’s fair to say that we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there.”

    4 Million attended the Paris unity rally,larger than the WW2 victory rally, it is the greatest shame in modern American history, 40 head of States participated. Obama did not attend for no reason, because he has to watch the NFL game. US was represented by a former lobbyist who became Ambassador to France.”You let the world down”, said the European daily news to Obama. In my opinion, Obama intentionally did not attend, to send a message to radical Islam(ISIS) that he is not against them, which mean more terrorism to come.

      Obummer has been speaking, acting and doing everything with a pro Islam bent ever since his faux potus-ship began. You awake yet America?

      How unfortunate that our president has found himself caught in a Religious Conflict-of-Interest situation. The very organizations he has selected so many of his appointees from, are engaging in terrorist activities against America, and our allies.

    Watch as ovomit continues his doublespeak and taqiyya to further the destruction of our country.

    When a Muslim speaks out against Muslim violence against the kafir, it’s taqiyya.

    Remember OBAMA’s speech ? his words ,I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” – Barack Hussein Obama

    #1 “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”-Barack Hussein Obama

    #2 “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”- Barack Hussein Obama

    future-must-not-belong-to-those-who-slander-prophet-islam-mohammad-barack-hussein-obama- is muslim.- Barack Hussein Obama

    #3 “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.” Barack Hussein Obama

    #4 “Islam has always been part of America” Barack Hussein Obama

    ALL of the above was his qoutes or on speeches , now all the lies he told about him being a Christians is Bugos and TAKIYYA.

    09-11-01 terror was the worst / the mother of all terroristic acts by the islamists, compared to what had happened to france. that being said, obobo is nonchalance on the murder of the satirists, deep inside he is offended with mohammed being made fun in caricatures, yet obobo have to speak defending the freedom of speech to keep his job is not something new for this double face BS artist. obobo did not attend the rally against the muslim terrorists, so as not to feel sick, afraid may vomit, while in the parade, uneasy to go against his father’s / stepfather’s muslim religion / his muslim upbringing. it’s easier for obobo to make excuses, than to attend a rally against a group he identifies well as if he belongs / defend. obobo is consistently defending islam, that these muslim terrorists are not really true islam / are simply self invoking islam as an excuse of their jihad – the main reason obobo comfortably says to americans, america is not at war with islam. the saddest part is there are great numbers of americans believing obobo’s rhetorics, as well as the public being convinced obobo is not muslim, yet the signs are all over of obobo the expert on islam, freely speaking of his mastery of islam says it all.

    the people aka voters of france brought this chaos to their own country, by electing the most radical lefty politician lawmakers, who are allowing the muslim immigrants running the french people to the ground, declaring a no go zone in a sovereign france. the same as england, & other countries in europe, all are possibly being under siege by the invading muslims, determined to spread their sharia laws, facilitated by their respective elected radical, socialists politician lawmakers. that being said, the same can happen to america, slowly / surely with growing mosques with known imans teaching radicalisms of islam, yet the government will not infiltrate the radical imans, calling it profiling aka racists. americans gullible or not knew in their heart the terrorists are living among us, as if we all are like sitting ducks, waiting on if, when & where. this is what you all get with far out lefties, socialists, liberals into overboard politically correctness politicians, the like of obobo & his bobos, all the softies like about to melt ice cream, bleeding heart is their modern day approach to the number one enemy of america, the muslim terrorists, the jihadists terrorizing in the name of islam. obobo and his bobos, the like of killery were all salivating, as if the war in terror are over for good – UBL is DEAD, al qaeda are on the run, & people believed such full of hot air campaign, reelected obobo. so will the people aka voters get duped once again by killery and et al?. BTW, killery cannot even handle benghazi, simply had no outstanding record of accomplishments as a NY senator. killery learned the emotional persuasive, manufactured talks to woo her ill informed followers refusing to believe killery is one big fat liar, all to her own self interests, couldn’t care less of america, a power hungry woman, will do anything wherever the wind blows, just to get what she desires as the first woman POTUS.

    It is clearly extremely evident that he did not attend the rally in Paris because of two reasons:
    1) He IS a muslim and he not only encourages Jihad, he too participates in Jihad with his support and direction for it.
    2) He cannot and/or will not have anything to do with all of those
    leaders and heads of state of all of those other countries. He is an abject stupid idiot who cannot talk the talk nor can he even discuss any topic of World issues due to his ignorance and illiteracy. It is also clearly evident that there is NO leader throughout the world who has any respect for obama whatsoever. And for that matter, neither do the citizens of any country have an ounce of respect for him. We have lost ALL respect among nations solely due to that horrific idiot…obama!
