Obama: Four Things Using the Words “Radical Islam” Will Accomplish
Shots fired, lives perished at the hands of a gunman in an “act of terror” (as he puts it) but Obama has yet to utter the words “Radical Islam” Barack Obama spoke on Monday at the U.S. Treasury Department and had this to say as his parting thoughts on Sunday’s atrocity:
“Let me make a final point, for a while now the main contribution of some of my friends on the other side of the aisle have made in the fight against ISIL is to criticize the administration and me for not using the phrase “radical Islam.” That’s the key they tell us. We cannot beat ISIL unless we call them “radical Islam”. What exactly using this label would accomplish and what will it change? Will it make ISIL less committed to try to kill Americans? Would it bring more allies for military strategy than it is served by this? The answer is none of the above. Calling a threat by a different name does not make it go away. This is a political distraction. Before I was president, I have been cleared about extremist groups justifying terrorists. As president, I have called on our Muslim friends and allies at home and around the world to work with us to reject this twisted interpretation of one of the world’s great religions.”
We’ve known for quite some time that BHO has quite the love affair with the Muslim religion (although he claims to be a Christian):
To further drive this point home, check these quotes out. All made by one Barack Hussein Obama:
1. “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”
2. “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”
3. “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”
4. “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”
5. “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”
6. “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
9. “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
10. “I made it clear that America is not – and will never be – at war with Islam.”
Obama has been known to juxtapose Islam and Christianity and make comparisons-ones that were always favorable to Islam and not-so-favorable remarks with regard to Christianity.
We know Barack Obama can utter the words “Muslim” and “Islam” but his romanticized view of this faith along with his colossal ego and pride will not allow him to place a “Radical” or “Extremist” or “Fundamentalist” in front of these words. Why? Because what on earth would that accomplish or change? Let us make a few final points. I can think of a few things:
1.) Saying “Radical Islam” acknowledges the threat.
Yes, because it is what it is. An acknowledgement is simply what some Americans need right now. Obama’s America clearly looks different than ours. Obama couldn’t care less about what those who disagree with his policies and agenda think of him as he is on his way out the door in January. But some of us Americans? We need to hear the acknowledgement of a credible threat. We do not want or need our intelligence insulted by a smooth-talking, teleprompter-reading, Harvard scholar who has been an unfaithful steward to the office he has been sworn into and is too puffed up with pride to say the words a great deal of Americans want him to say because saying them means acknowledgement and accountability. To say “Radical Islam” for Barack Obama is to acknowledge his lack of ability or outright unwillingness to protect this country. While Obama sings the praises of the “tolerance” of Islam, he spins the Americans who are angry about radical atrocities on our homeland as the spun-up “ignorant masses”. He is pretentious in this regard and as if he has “a plan” and knows so much more than we do about this threat. He knows sooo much more that he refuses stoop to a level of the common man and call them “radical”!
2.) Saying “Radical Islam” takes the focus off of the agendas we should not be focused upon at this time.
These two words take the focus off of “LGBT rights” and “gun control”. Uttering “Radical Islam” puts the threat of terror into the forefront and pushes bathroom policies that our President wants to force upon Americans and “Common Sense Gun Control” to the background. “Radical Islam” is acknowledgement that it’s not just the Christian/Republicans who (he claims) display “bigotry” against the LGBT community. Having a radicalized Muslim, who was a registered Democrat shooting up a nightclub full of innocent people just wanting to enjoy a night out negates the narrative. Sating “Radical Islam” does not do anything to drive Obama’s point home about how the “bitter clingers” of Bibles and guns must be stopped. “Radical Islam” pushes the focus onto Sharia and its tenets; one of these being a strong stance against homosexuality and a strong advocacy of violence by any means necessary in the name of the caliphate. Advancing “progress”,”dignity” and “justice”? Talk to Muslim women who are beaten and sold as slaves, Obama. Check out videos of gay men being thrown off of rooftops, too. Think it can’t happen here? Think again.
3.) Saying “Radical Islam” puts into question the Immigration policies this administration has in place.
9/11? The Boston Marathon? San Bernardino? Orlando? The vetting process of refugees? Immigrants coming to the United States from Afghanistan, Pakistan who have children who later become–here comes the word–RADICALIZED?! The fact that Mateen was cleared TWICE by the FBI after questioning? Could it be that our vetting process is not as ironclad as our President claims it to be? And could the words “Radical Islam” rolling off the tongue of Mr. President could call into question these very policies?
4.) Saying “Radical Islam” gives us back our backbone.
Radical Islam is proud of being radical. They are proud of waging jihad and death to those who do not fall in line with their philosophy. Where is our pride in all of this? Where is our proclamation to stand strong and stand united and defeat “Radical Islam”? Instead we are told that saying “Radical Islam” is insulting those in the Muslim community and that it “dumbs us down”. We have to sit and watch our President scold us like little children for saying such a thing and assuring us that “all is taken care of?” While Barack Obama claims to take a strong stance against terrorism, Americans are slowly being shamed into falling in line with an overtly politically-correct social climate that discourages patriotism and calling ’em as we see ’em. It’s “racist” to say that a man who was a devout Muslim, who pledged allegiance to ISIS while shooting up an LGBT bar and who hated homosexuality was “Radical”? Meanwhile, we cannot Pledge Allegiance in our schools in fear of insulting someone, for being “Radical Right Wing”? When did we become so malleable? When did our priorities become so out-of-sync?
Nope, Barack Obama will not say “Radical Islam” anytime soon and ruin his delusion of being the peacemaker of the world, adored by the masses who do not question him. Instead, we are to accept this and trust blindly in his “strategy”, to defeat these-uhhhhhhh (no teleprompter here)-terrible people, uhhhhhh-these people who invoke terror. We’re to trust his “strategy” when he cannot even say the names of the enemies without fear of backlash? Newsflash: Radical Islam has one name for their enemies: Americans. LGBT, Straight, Male, Female, Muslim Americans, Jews, Christians…oh and atheists? We won’t leave Godless folks you out…they hate you, too! Radical Islam. Was this all too radical for you, oh worshiper of the Obama throne? Good!
