At the Center for Foreign Relations in New York City on Friday, CIA Director John Brennan spoke out against using terms like “Islamic” or “Muslim” in relation to ISIS because it gives them the legitimacy they are “so desperately seeking” and “don’t deserve at all.”
He said it does an injustice to the tenets of religion to “attach a religious moniker to them”.
This semantic wordplay stems from their arrogance and their belief that they have to talk down to us. They think we’re stupid and they think Muslims are stupid.
The administration is also pandering to the more political Muslims.
“We need to expose just how murderous and psychopathic these individuals are,” Brennan said Friday.
They’re psychopathic criminals not Islamic terrorists in other words.
I guess during the Crusades the Christians were fighting psychopathic criminals, not Saracens (Muslims).
Over-and-over, the administration will repeat their mantra that these terrorists do not represent the overwhelming majority of Muslims because we are all too stupid to remember unless they say it constantly.
During the Q & A on Friday, Brennan said, “They aren’t terrorists, they’re criminals.”
“Most–many–of them are psychopathic thugs, murderers who use a religious concept and masquerade and mask themselves in that religious construct. Let’s make it very clear that the people who carry out acts of terrorism – whether it be al-Qaeda or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – are doing it because they believe it is consistent with what their view of Islam is,” the director continued. “It is totally inconsistent with what the overwhelming majority of Muslims throughout the world.”
It’s radical Islam whether Brennan knows it or not.
Earlier in the day, CBS reported that in a speech, Brennan dismissed Conservatives’ complaints of not being able to fight an enemy if we don’t know who we’re fighting or what their motivations are.
“Quite frankly, I’m amused about the debate that goes on about, you know, unless you call it by what it is, you don’t know what you’re fighting,” Brennan said. “I think we have to be very careful also in the characterization because the words that we use can have resonance.”
ISIS is wreaking destruction everywhere they go and these fools are worried about semantics. “Words” have “resonance” to them as long as you don’t call a thing what it is if they’ve said not to.
Look at Kobani before and after ISIS for a brief glimpse into what is happening while the intel Director babbles about word resonance.
