Late last year the President ordered a small contingent of military advisers to Uganda and other central African countries to help local officials find and destroy a group that calls itself The Lord's Resistance Army.
Many conservative leaders used this to prove that President Obama was declaring war on Christians thus proving their point that he was a closet Muslim and Arab Terrorist. After all The Lord's Resistance Army was fighting Muslims in the Sudan and other counties.
The leader of the Republican Party (Rush Limbaugh) said this about the Presidents decision;
Lord's Resistance Army are Christians. It means God. I was only kidding. Lord's Resistance Army are Christians. They are fighting the Muslims in Sudan. And Obama has sent troops, United States troops to remove them from the battlefield, which means kill them. That's what the lingo means, "to help regional forces remove from the battlefield," meaning capture or kill.
The Lord's Resistance Army actually does the following"
- Kidnaps young girls and forces them into sexual slavery
- Kidnaps young boys and turns them into to child soldiers
- They force these young boys to rape the women in their families, torture and murder their own fathers and perform other acts of violence and terror against their own villages and people
- They pillage and burn the villages that offers up any resistance to their efforts. They are thieves, pretty criminals and brutal thugs
These terrorist are not by any stretch of the imagination Christian but the American right wing jumped to their defense in their blind and irrational hatred of anything and everything Barack Obama does. To be fair when they were told by their assistants about the true nature of The Lord's Resistance Army many quickly back tracked. They didn't apologize the just said "never mind"
