Call Terrorism What Is — Terrorism

We all know what an act of Islamic terrorism is — except for our lame duck-in-chief, that is.
 
Now the Canadians know it, too.
 
On Wednesday one of their fellow citizens who had just converted to Islam and wanted to go overseas and join ISIS donned a dark jacket and an “Arabic scarf” and attacked their parliament.
 
He — the suicidal terrorist — shot one unarmed ceremonial guard to death.
 
But before he could hurt anyone else he was killed in an exchange of gunfire by Kevin Vickers, the Parliament’s brave sergeant-at-arms.
 
President Obama won’t use the word “terror” to describe acts of Islamic terrorism for two reasons.  
 
He doesn’t want to admit that his global anti-terrorism efforts have failed and he thinks it’s politically incorrect to call Islamic terrorism exactly what it is — “terrorism.”
 
Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper wasn’t afraid to immediately call what happened Wednesday an act of terror.
 
But our so-called leaders are worried they might offend our peaceful Muslim fellow citizens.
 
So they pretend that acts of terrorism against the USA and its citizens are being committed not by Islamic extremists but by a random mix of lone-wolf Presbyterians, Baptists, and atheists.
 
Since our government won’t label Islamic terrorists, as Israel does, we have to start practicing some common sense. We have to be on alert. It’s the only way to defend our families and ourselves.
 
I’m not counting on President Obama or anyone in Washington or Sacramento or Los Angeles for protection and neither should you.
 
Thanks to the Internet, any wacko or “mind-numb robot,” as Rush calls them, can be radicalized into a copycat Islamist extremist who’s ready to die in a terror attack on us infidels.
 
It’s going to be up to me and you to defend ourselves if ISIS or one of its crazy wannabes shows up at your local mall with rifles and bombs.
 
I know how unlikely it is that I’ll ever come fact-to-face with a terrorist or a criminal of any kind.
 
The government is not willing to perform its basic function — protecting us from those who would do us harm.
 
We have to defend ourselves individually.
 
President Obama has a perfect chance to make up for his past foolishness on guns and gun control. He should declare Kevin Vickers a hero and give him the first honorary North American Medal of Honor.
 
Vickers’ bravery proved that in the real world, where Islamic terrorists live and try to kill innocent people, good men and guns do do good.
 
What happened in Ottawa also proved that men with ceremonial guns end up dead. And good men with real guns become heroes.
