Obama Sees Only Muslim Backlash, Not Terror Threat

By Tuesday, 08 December 2015 02:00 PM Current | Bio | Archive

The day before Thanksgiving, the president told us that “ . . . while the threat of terrorism is a troubling reality of our age . . . we know of no specific and credible intelligence indicating a plot on the homeland.”

A few days later, Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik slaughtered 14 people at a San Bernardino County, Calif. Christmas party in what the president in his Oval Office address finally called an “act of terrorism.”

In his passionless and uninspiring remarks, Obama offered more of the “same soup warmed over” rhetoric and used most of his patronizing speech to lecture us on gun control and reiterate his “don’t discriminate against Muslims” mantra.

He said nothing to calm the fears and anxieties of a very concerned America over the problem of radical Islamic terrorism, a term which he and his Democratic colleagues will not even allow to cross their “blame America first” lips.

The only thing he left out of his patronizing was to somehow relate the San Bernardino attacks to climate change.

To emphasize the seriousness of the subject — and keeping his priorities in order — he put on a tuxedo and went to a social event at the Kennedy Center just as he went to a fundraiser after Benghazi and played golf after remarks on the beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIS terrorists.

There was no reference to changing the military’s rules of engagement in fighting ISIS or asking for more resources for the FBI to investigate home grown terrorism.

Regarding Obama’s repeated references to not blaming all Muslims for the acts of a few and Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s recent comments that her “greatest fear” is the . . . "disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric . . . ,” one would think that there has been an epidemic of wide spread anti-Muslim rhetoric and acts in the wake of terrorist attacks.

They obviously have not talked to their own FBI.

According to the FBI’s 2014 Hate Crime Statistics, of hate crimes based on religion, over 58 per cent were against Jews and only 16 per cent were against Muslims.

So, both the president’s and attorney general’s grossly exaggerated fears are based on myth — for whatever political reason. 

If only the president exhibited such concerns over the treatment and executions of Christians around the world.

All of this adds up to the conclusion that this is a president lacking in leadership, clarity, and self-confidence; and offering no strategy to defeat ISIS and terrorism — and protect Americans.

He has been a total failure as a world leader and, along with his two failed secretaries of state (Hillary Clinton and John Kerry) has surrendered United States leadership in the world to Russia, Britain, and France; and, allowed Iran, which just launched its second medium range ballistic missile, to run circles around the U.S. in the ill-fated “Munich-like” nuclear agreement.

Events are proving former House Speaker Newt Gingrich right when he said that Obama “is the greatest national security threat ever to occupy the White House.” He added that he lives in a “fantasy world . . . about Russia . . . the Middle East . . . Libya” and about “bringing unchecked, unverified, unvalidated Syrians in significant numbers to the United States.”

The other sad reality is that Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, offer more of the same.

Given their refusal to say we are in a “war” against radical Islam especially after Paris and San Bernardino, Americans cannot and should not trust Democrats to protect them and their families from the threat of terrorism!

Given their “roll over and show your belly” responses to events, if they are successful in controlling the White House and Congress next year, we may see the beginning of the end of the United States of America as we know it where:
  • If “you see something and say something” you might be prosecuted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) if it is deemed to be anti-Muslim and theoretically led to some violent act.
  • Local police departments are forced to get rid of military type vehicles and equipment that protects them from the weapons of terrorists because it makes them look like “occupation forces.”
  • Efforts are made to erode the 2nd Amendment by the Democratic president, Congressional Democrats and liberal mayors and governors to ban or further restrict sale and ownership of many weapons and ammunition now deemed legal.
  • And, Mideast, African, Paris and San Bernardino type terrorist massacres come home to U.S. shopping malls, subways, and public events in response to appeasing and politically correct policies of Democratic national leaders. 
One thing is clear: ISIS and their jihadist colleagues around the world will probably be rooting for Hillary and Democrats in 2016.
