Another Political Email Debunked Muslim Postage Stamp from US Postal Service


Today I received an email letting me know that there’s trouble afoot. President Obama is selling us Americans, and our culture, out to those damned Muslims.  It seems that radical leftist bozo in the White House directed the Postal Service to create a stamp that commemorates a Muslim holiday. 

The email goes on to ask me to “adamantly and vocally boycott this stamp.” All that I have to say at the post office is “NO thank you, i do not want that Muslim stamp on my letters”. 

Further it goes on to name all of the horrible things that have been done by radical Muslims. 

For the record I’ll say that I don’t really like Muslims and to my way of thinking this is silly for our country to have this stamp available.  But, we’re a large country with diverse Cultures, I’m sure there’s many a Muslim walking around that will think it’s really cool that their country is acknowledging their culture.  The interesting thing here is that this emails real message is to watch out for that Obama bastard, he’s selling us out to the Muslims.  I decided to investigate the origins of this stamp and discover what role Barrack Obama played in bringing this stamp to the public. 

First, I must inform you, when you visit the post office, if you want one of these commemorative stamps you have to ask for it specifically.  Therefore, the need to ever correct the teller and refuse the stamp is alleviated. You would only ever get this stamp if you expressly asked for it.

Second, this 44 cent stamp went into circulation September of 2009.  However, the basic stamp design has been around over 9 years longer. 

This 34 cent stamp was originally issued August 1, 2001.  42 days before the bombing of the World Trade center.

Even more interesting, it was re-issued in October of 2002 as a 37 cent stamp. 

What’s very interesting about the October 2002 version, accompanying the issuance the White House posted the following item explaining the stamp.

Obviously, George Bush thought it was ok to issue an Islamic themed stamp not once but twice, why is it a slight on Obama that it’s being issued again 8 and 9 years later? 

Look, the right puts a lot of effort into their emails.  I’m sure many of us get mad at those damn liberals all the time.  Wouldn’t it feel better to get mad over something that Obama truly has earned? 

As I said from the outset, I’m not excited about this stamp, but then again, I’ve never been excited about a stamp except for one time when a relative sent out Christmas cards that had their baby’s face where the postage stamp would go.  You can breathe easy, this is not the dreaded final word that Barrack Obama is really a Muslim activist planted here to destroy our country. 

My advice to you when you see an email like this.  If it interests or angers you, go to and paste the subject line into their search field.  If it’s bogus, more than likely snopes knows.  Before you forward, validate.
