No matter how obvious the facts are, Mr. Obama and his leftist soul-mates simply cannot utter the words, “Islamic terrorist.” Neither will they acknowledge the influence of radical Islam in crimes where it’s just obvious to anyone that this ideology motivated the perpetrators of the violence. And if you refuse to acknowledge the cause of a problem, you are not going to solve it. Which causes one to question Mr. Obama’s motives. To be a bit more blunt, why does he want to give Muslims a pass when they commit a violent crime?
Perhaps the following review of Obama’s past remarks on this subject will enable us to put his most recent warning against blaming violent acts on the teachings of Islam in context:
Obama continued to legitimize Islamic terrorists with an opt-ed published in the LA Times, stating that ISIS jihadists have ‘legitimate grievances’.
“More broadly, groups like al Qaeda and ISIL exploit the anger that festers when people feel that injustice and corruption leave them with no chance of improving their lives,” Obama wrote. “The world has to offer today’s youth something better.”
“Efforts to counter violent extremism will only succeed if citizens can address legitimate grievances through the democratic process and express themselves through strong civil societies,” he added. “Those efforts must be matched by economic, educational and entrepreneurial development so people have hope for a life of dignity.”
What an incredible position for a president to take.
With that background we can examine his administration’s statement on the Ohio State attack. More on page two.
