Obama’s San Bernardino Terrorist Speech: Dangerous

obmspkngOn Sunday, President Obama addressed the nation about the recent mass shooting of 14 people by Islamic terrorists in San Bernardino, Calif. The speech was full of holes, and dangerous.

One the one hand, he said the terrorists had embraced “a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West.” But then he spent almost half of his speech on a long lecture about how Americans should not discriminate against Muslims.

He claimed that Islamic extremists “account for a tiny fraction of more than a billion Muslims around the world.” A fraction perhaps, but not quite vanishingly small. ISIS has greatly expanded while he has been president and now has control over territory in Iraq and Syria with an estimated population in the millions. They aren’t doing that with three or four Muslim misfits working out of a basement. And that conquest doesn’t even include ISIS’s presence in other countries.

Remember when Obama phased out President Bush’s “war on terror” phrase? Now he’s bringing back the word “terrorist” because it allows him to avoid using phrases like “radical Islam.” He cannot bring himself to use the words “Islam” or “Muslim” as part of a phrase with “extremist” or similar words.
