Obama Message Seems to Blame Americans
The main focus of Obama’s message is to make sure that we don’t connect Islamic terrorism with Islam. That is a curious perspective, and he claims that our religious bigotry is somehow responsible for the growth of ISIS, and we must not connect the dots. The video is absolutely vacuous, full of promises to contain ISIS, but with no tangible indication that things will be any different than they have been before. As he pointed out in his speech;
As I said in my speech last weekend, one of the most important things we can do is to stay true to who we are as Americans. Terrorists like ISIL are trying to divide us along lines of religion and background. That’s how they stoke fear. That’s how they recruit. And just as Muslims around the world have to keep rejecting any twisted interpretation of Islam, all of us have to reject bigotry—in all of its forms. I’ll say it again, prejudice and discrimination helps ISIS and it undermines our national security.
There you have it. If we only overcome our religious prejudices, we can have peace in our time. I wonder what he would say if Islamic terrorists shot up Pennsylvania Avenue? Would he still the same recommendation to stay calm, love one another, and embrace your local Islamic terrorist?
Obama is either out of touch and unwilling to do anything that will get the United States truly engaged in destroying ISIS, or perhaps he is, in fact, not interested in doing so. Either way, he is a very weak commander in chief and over his head in the job of protecting this nation.
But his declaration that Americans are so mean and religiously bigoted that we cause fighters to rush into the arms of ISIS in order to kill us is one of the most preposterous things ever uttered by a community organizer. Unfortunately, that view is the one that is leading this nation during a critical time. Our only hope is that we can survive the next 12 months. You can listen to the nonsense in the video below.
