Loretta Lynch did her best to remove any evidence from the transcripts of Mateen's conversations with a 911 operator while he was hiding in the nightclub where he had just murdered dozens of people that he was doing it to “praise Allah” and in the name of a violent Islamic Imam. It was blatantly designed to obscure what motivated Mateen, and give cover to his radical Muslim ideology. It did not work, and Lynch should be removed from the Justice Department for that indiscretion alone. But what she just said about other jihadists truly shows her lack of judgement, understanding and common sense. Her recommendation as she spoke to mourners in Oralando includes the following:
“We stand with you to say that the good in this world far outweighs the evil, that our common humanity transcends our differences, and that our most effective response to terror and to hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love,” Lynch said. “We stand with you today as we grieve together, and long after the cameras are gone, we will continue to stand with you as we grow together in commitment, in solidarity, and in equality.”
You have to wonder if she would have said the same thing about relationship with the Germans and the Japanese during World War II.
The Muslim jihadis want to kill us. That is their motivating desire, it is what drives them to even commit suicide if it will destroy “infidels” who do not subscribe to their particular brand of Islam. We are at war with them, and the proper response is to root them out, kill them, and bury their outlandish beliefs along with their sorry, dirt covered carcasses.
And speaking of out-of-touch sympathizers, Hillary Clinton herself, who once said we must 'empathize' with our enemies, has some explaining to do. She has some very close ties with Islamic countries that are the fountain head of Islamic jihad. It is a dangerous world out there, and no one should be in a significant government office who thinks that hugs and fist bumps are going to protect us from barbarians who want to kill us.
As Teddy Roosevelt once said, speak softly, but carry a big stick. And it should be added “be ready and willing to use it.”
