Gold Star Mom Asks Obama: Why Do You Refuse to Use the Term ‘Radical Islamic Terrorism’?

But without fail, Obama proceeded to condescend to the woman and trivialize the significance of the issue she brought up. Mouthing platitudes about appreciating her son’s service as well as that of other servicemen, Obama then informed the mother that the issue she asked him about was “not real” and thus not worth serious consideration.

It speaks volumes about Obama that he didn’t simply try to defend his refusal to say “radical Islamic terrorism” but instead went out of his way to belittle the woman and her question. If the president doesn’t feel that an issue is important, then it’s “manufactured”, even when it’s something as deadly serious as, say, radical Islamic terrorism.
