Last night’s speech was a little more than fifteen minutes and truly a waste. More words and telling others what they need to do instead of taking more responsibility and being more accountable.
Not once did President Obama say Islamic terrorists or jihadists. Instead he continues to obfuscate, and referred to Syed Farook and Tafsheen Malik as “shooters who had gone down the dark path of radicalization, embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West.”
This quote from Obama says it all:
“ISIL does not speak for Islam. They are thugs and killers, part of a cult of death. And they account for a tiny fraction of a more than a billion Muslims around the world, including millions of patriotic Muslim-Americans who reject their hateful ideology. Muslim leaders here and around the globe have to continue working with us to decisively and unequivocally reject the hateful ideology that groups like ISIL and al-Qaida promote, to speak out against not just acts of violence, but also those interpretations of Islam that are incompatible with the values of religious tolerance, mutual respect, and human dignity.”
Then sir, explain to us all, are there two different Korans?Even Egyptian President Abdel Fattahel-Sisi recognizes the hateful rhetoric that Islamic clerics are spewing to inspire these barbaric actions. It all comes from ONE book so stop being disingenuous with the American people. History tells us the truth. You are attempting to deceive, and showing an acute sympathy for Islamists.
It was just one more long, drawn out display of rhetoric used to evade the declaration of what inspires this evil. Obama went through the motions and presented a facade. He lacked the clear indignation and emotion displayed when he talks about climate change — his true religion.
So, from an intellectual standpoint, I simply shut him off. Because if you’re not able to define your enemy, nothing else matters.
