Four French Jews who Obama administration spokesmen insist were "randomly" shopping at a kosher deli and were "randomly" targeted for death.

Spokesmen at the White House and State Dept. made things worse for President Barack Obama Tuesday by twisting themselves into deformed pretzels to somehow justify their boss’s remark Monday that the terrorist who attacked a kosher deli in Paris was not targeting Jews.

The president’s remark in an interview with Vox, as reported here, was:

It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.

There was so much mockery of the president’s remark that the most sensible thing would have been for him to say, “I really am sorry for my statement that did not reflect the reality that Islamic terrorists targeted the deli to murder Jews.”

If he had said that simple sentence, he would have earned some Brownie points for admitting he is a human being although he might have lost ground to reach out and engage Al Qaeda.

Instead, he left it to the double talkers at the White House and the State Dept. to fail to rise to the challenge and end up making the president look like he can’t see straight, let alone think straight. They made him look goofy and made themselves eligible for months of physiotherapy to straighten out their contorted tongues, assuming ObamaCare covers the treatment.

Any half-objective journalist cannot escape the fact the “bunch of folks” at the Paris deli were Jewish.

One reporter asked White House Press Secretary John Earnest Tuesday, ” Does the President have any doubt that those terrorists attacked that deli because there would be Jews in that deli?”

Following is Earnest’s answer, which would be hilarious if it weren’t for the fact that four people – Jews – were killed and several others were wounded in the attack:

It is clear from the terrorists and some of the writings that they put out afterwards what their motivation was.  The adverb that the President chose was used to indicate that the individuals who were killed in that terrible tragic incident were killed not because of who they were, but because of where they randomly happened to be.

“Random” is the new  buzz word now in the Obama administration. The president said the attackers “randomly” shot, and now his spokesman says the victims were “randomly” shopping in the deli. It seems that the victims of the terrorist attack put a blindfold over their eyes and asked someone to guide them to a deli, any deli.

They just “happened” to be Jews who just “happened” to walk into a kosher deli.

The same reporter pressed Earnest with the logical follow-up question, “They weren’t killed because they were in a Jewish deli though, they were in a kosher deli?”

Earnest randomly shot from the hip, or from the mouth, and responded:

 These individuals were not targeted by name. This is the point.

Earnest is telling the American people, and the world, that the terrorist did not plot to kill specific Jews and therefore he shot randomly, which is what virtually every terrorist and mass murderer does.

He is saying that when a terrorist goes into a kosher deli, it is supposedly a random choice and the victims were “randomly” chosen without name tags.

The same questioner pointed out to Earnest that the victims were shot because they were Jewish, and asked, “Not by name, but by religion, were they not? Does he [Obama] have any doubt that deli was attacked because it was a kosher deli? It was not any random deli, it was a kosher deli…

  1. Blood-boiling, face-palming insanity! Send Holder to Ferguson, have Sharpton over 70 times to the WH, shun Netanyahu and refrain from referring to this wave of terrorism what it is…islamic (I hate even typing the words) terrorism. I can’t, I just can’t understand it all. It’s other-worldly!

  2. obama is a seditionist: sedition (sɪˈdɪʃən)
    n
    1. speech or behaviour directed against the peace of a state
    2. (Law) an offence that tends to undermine the authority of a state
    3. (Law) an incitement to public disorder
    4. revolt
    He needs to leave office for the good of the USA

  3. Congress won’t stand up to obama out of political cowardice. The media continues to provide cover and misdirection. The Supreme Court is silent. We can’t wait another year and a half while our nation retreats from its enemies and fails to lead its friends. It falls now on the nation’s military to save the Republic from its rogue commander in chief. If they be cowards they will continue to silently stand down and watch their nation ruined. History will not be kind to them. But be they American Patriots and heroes like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln they will jump boldly out of their cushy trenches, put life and career on the line and loudly proclaim: Mr. Obama, I can not serve under your leadership any longer. I can not follow orders from a commander in chief who is leading my Country down the path to defeat and surrender. I hereby resign my commission effective immediately.

  4. A life is a life. Any mention of a motive right after a crime is ignorant and improper. We had to deal with this stupid Bengazzi Inquisition for the past three years. "Why didn't he say it was a terrorist attack?". Who cares what it was. People died and it was sad. When people find an excuse to politicize their cause for 5 seconds of fame I find it more disheartening. If there were Americans in that deli they would have been happy to kill them too. We are talking about crazy people and it's selfish if people want to use that for a cause.

  5. StukeyTown OurSite: I feel sorry that you have the same amount of air to breathe as everyone else. Your little hate speech has no claws. Try and come up with something original and is factual. I'm sure if you waste this much time drooling on your keyboard posting anti Obama slogans I'm sure you are living off the government as well with a refrigerator full of government cheese.

  6. after listening to them say it on the videos, you doubt the credibility of what he is reporting? You think he edited the tapes? We all heard it Les, and we heard what Obama said. You can pretend this journalist made it up but then that makes you the fool, and not a random one.

  7. And the Irish have a right to oppose torcher of American prisoners of any kind and as a result to oppose flights landing in Shannon for Shannon is not a supporter of acts of inhumanity to any prisoner no matter what law they hav broken at all, it is unlawful to raise a hand to.a prisoner of any kind only within the law for instance 39 lashes on the back was a lawful punishment but one more than that was unlawful hitting with fist and other instruments was not permitted by Gods law regardless, but restraints are allowed so as to prevent escape or injury to officers of law enforcement, tazing could be harmful to someone with a bad heart however but if a person wishes to harm an officer then the officer should live and the person who wishes to harm the officer should be restrained or forfeit his life if nessary, for no citizens have a right to put any life at risk of death, that’s lawful

  8. I think I get it. BHO was pointing out to all of us – the misinformed – that the Muslim Terrorist (who was caught on security videos over the past few months casing Jewish Institutions) was not targeting individual specific Jewish victims. After all, the terrorist never met any of these Jews personally before the day he decided to murder Jews. Those specific Jewish victims who were viciously murdered precisely and only because they were Jewish – were random Jewish victims. Any old random victim who happened to be in the Kosher Supermarket was the focus of his hatred – as long as they were Jews. Thus BHO – who claims not to be a Muslim – can knowledgeably sympathize with all those folks who are afraid of random violence by terrorists who are motivated by some non-specific evil creed – which of course has absolutely no connection what-so-ever with BHO's expert knowledge of true Islam – the Religion of Peace.

  9. I marvel at the lack of anything substantive on the part of Obama supporters commenting on this thread. That lack, alone, is almost enough to verify the logical comments by Shlomo Rifkind even for those who are merely objective, and have no grasp on the obvious before it is stated.

  10. If Netanyahu is not re elected, you can forget about the survival of Israel. It will be over. Iran has nukes on standby . Obama has allowed them to continue and if Bibi loses, so does Israel. Iran will push the button and Obama will closes his eyes.

  11. Although I remain a Netanyahu supporter, I am not prepared to elevate him to the office of deity. Israel will survive against whatever forces are marshalled against it, political, military, or economic. So it has been stated. So it has been written…

  12. You should know that President Obama loves NOT only golf but also bowling! But he has been practicing ‘bowling’ especially in politics…

    I invite you to notice that in the Middle East, which is President Obama's favorite ‘bowling alley’ there is a SKITTLE [?] – in the President's conception!! – which he wants to break – it's name is BIBI!

    We all hope that Prime Minister Netanyahu can remain VERTICAL and defend the interests of the State of Israel!

  13. No one is elevating Netanyahu to a deity
    Our sacred writings has the saying : In the place where there is NO man ,You be the man !
    The occupant of the White House is not a man Someone has to fill that position
    Churchill was not a deity but he was the man for that time
    Please accept that the stakes are very ,very high .But your president does not realize that

  14. Obama is back to being a "word picker." This allows him to pick words and later say they meant something else. He can not be trusted. I am glad we have our Congress to counter-balance what Emperor Obama wants to do in this world. Come to think of it, I don't care for Joe Biden either, but he is the one with political smarts. Obama does not have a clearly stated foreign policy.

  15. The "folks" in the deli were not one race so apparently they weren't targets? Neither are Americans one race but we're all still (as far as I know) Americans. That was another ignorant obfuscation.

  16. EVERY COUNTRY NEEDS A MAN TO DEFEND IT ! PUNTO E BASTA !! (ITALIAN) DIDN'T WE HAVE MOSHE TO 'DEFEND' US !!? BIBI AND MOSHE ARE NOT DEITIES, BUT THEY ARE HERE TO SPEAK ONN OUR BEHALF… WE SPEAK… HA-SHEM ..DOES !!!!!!

  17. SO YOU LIKE HIM, GREAT, BUT U HAVETO ACCEPT THAT OTHERS DON'T !, DON'T WASTE TOO MANY WORDS IN ANGER AGAINST THOSE WHO DON'T AGREE WITH YOU… EVEN IF I DON'T AGRE WITH YOU I BELIEVE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO YOUR POSITION.. BUT WILL NEVER WRITE THINGS THAT YOU WROTE… I.E HATE SPEECH HAS NO CLAWS… EVERYTHING HAS THE RIGHT TO HIS OPINION, NO MATTER HOW HE EXPRESSES IT…
