[Obama, who is left-handed, made the Sign of the Cross with his left hand.]

In the Muslim culture, the left hand is the butt wiping hand.

Therefore anything you do with the left hand is an insult.

He was sending a shoutout to his Islamic buddies.

And if he was using the right hand, he'd be a nazi-commie, right?

How do you know so much about Islam anyway? Are you perhaps a secret Muslim?

1) He's left-handed, idiot.
2) No, that doesn't make everything you do with your left hand an insult.
3) Most Muslim nations have modern sanitary plumbing. They aren't all stuck in the middle ages.

I never followed my Muslim friends into the bathroom, but I assure you that in most circumstances, they use both hands, like everyone else. Meanwhile, your preoccupation with men's dirty butts borders on the paraphilic.

11/27/2012 5:26:04 AM


I'm sure this is true because there's nothing Muslims appreciate more than the sign of the cross. Oh... hang on...

amazing non-sequiteur, your version of logic is bizarre.

James A. Garfield, Herbert Hoover, Harry S. Truman, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Barrack Obama

All US presidents, all left-handed. Dang, you people are really getting desperate to find something to slam Obama with. he must be doing a hell of a good job.

11/27/2012 7:07:05 AM


People used to think that being left-handed was unlucky, giving rise to the term "sinister", but thankfully we have moved past such archaic... oh, wait.

Doubting Thomas

Does it matter that he's left handed and probably not Catholic so wasn't aware that you're supposed to sign with the right hand? I'm surprised they're not jumping on the fact that he made the sign of the cross in the first place.

11/27/2012 7:29:23 AM


Damn. You figured it all out, didn't you?

Well, I guess the game's up then.

In the Muslim culture, the left hand is the butt wiping hand.

As it was in many cultures. But nowadays we have toilet paper, hand soap, and indoor plumbing so which hand you wipe with is as irrelevant as which hand you masturbate with.

Therefore anything you do with the left hand is an insult.

I wipe with my right hand. Does that mean I'm insulting every single pen I ever write with? Am I insulting myself when I masturbate with it?

He was sending a shoutout to his Islamic buddies.

With a sign of the cross? That's quite an unusual shout out. He couldn't have made like a crescent moon or something? I mean us "filthy commie libruls" are going to defend him anyway, right? So why not make a vague moon sign rather than a sign of the cross with his dominant hand which could easily be mistaken as a sincere gesture?

rubber chicken

All of which is predicated on the assumption that he is a Muslim. An assumption that you have conspicuously failed to provide ANY evidence for.
The fact that he is not white really gets up your nose, doesn't it ?

"I don't know shit about Muslims"

So ... Obama insulted Muslims? What?

11/27/2012 8:28:16 AM


Don't you have anything important to think about? Well, no, probably not. No one with any sense would give you any reasposibility beyond tending a tepid glass of water.

11/27/2012 8:49:20 AM


Coming up tomorrow: Obama blinks his eyes every two seconds as opposed to the average four seconds. He's hiding something, either that or he's sending Morse code messages to his Islamic buddies.

Oh my god, they have gone completely insane!

11/27/2012 9:17:41 AM

The left hand thing applies only in places without sanitation; it's not a religious issue, fool.

11/27/2012 9:38:02 AM


Jesus people, I'm Roman Catholic & I'm not all butthurt about this! Give it a rest will ya?

11/27/2012 9:50:26 AM

Or maybe he's just not a Muslim ... nah.

11/27/2012 10:34:04 AM


I lived for a short time in Kuwait, and I was told that when eating without any utensils (out in a tent in the desert for a family celebration) I was to use my right hand only, so as not to give offense. That is the only time the issue of handedness ever came up.

Since then, I've eaten pizza with Muslims, and they use both hands to do so. Just like everyone else.

This is what you're focusing on, Freepers? Because it's not like the nation is facing any serious problems.

I'm betting you wipe your ass with your right hand and that you probably make the sign of the cross with your right hand so what the fuck are you talking about?

In this Muslim country, most people use toilet paper.
