Barack Obama spoke to a gathering of police leaders, lawmakers and mayors from around the world Wednesday. After listening to his speech, one thing soon becomes clear. Barack Obama is incapable of learning from experience. He will continue to not name the enemy and he will not deal with the problems we face. It’s dangerous.
Ric Grenell, former UN spokesperson, wants to know if Barack Obama read his intel briefings. His speech, Grenell said, was unfocused, weak and he literally talked about isolating terrorists…people are being burned in cages and he’s talking about more investments, empowering youth…this is ridiculous.
Among other absurdities, he talked about the three young muslims murdered in Chapel Hill as possible targets of hate when we have no information to that effect at this time, but he made no mention of targeted Christians for which we do have evidence. ISIS says they are going to head for Rome!
Here is what Obama said:
In the face of horrific acts of violence — at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee, or at a Jewish community center outside Kansas City — we reaffirmed our commitment to pluralism and to freedom, repulsed by the notion that anyone should ever be targeted because of who they are, or what they look like, or how they worship.
Most recently, with the brutal murders in Chapel Hill of three young Muslim Americans, many Muslim Americans are worried and afraid. And I want to be as clear as I can be: As Americans, all faiths and backgrounds, we stand with you in your grief and we offer our love and we offer our support.
My point is this: As Americans, we are strong and we are resilient.
Obama pretends we are fighting ISIS while he refuses to aid Jordan, Egypt or the Kurds:
So, in the face of this challenge, we have marshalled the full force of the United States government, and we’re working with allies and partners to dismantle terrorist organizations and protect the American people.
He’s pretending the UN answered the call:
At the United Nations in September, I called on the international community to come together and eradicate this scourge of violent extremism. And I want to thank all of you — from across America and around the world — for answering this call.
He won’t legitimize the radical Islamists by calling them what they are, he said.
Al Qaeda and ISIL and groups like it are desperate for legitimacy. They try to portray themselves as religious leaders — holy warriors in defense of Islam. That’s why ISIL presumes to declare itself the “Islamic State.” And they propagate the notion that America — and the West, generally — is at war with Islam. That’s how they recruit. That’s how they try to radicalize young people. We must never accept the premise that they put forward, because it is a lie. Nor should we grant these terrorists the religious legitimacy that they seek. They are not religious leaders — they’re terrorists. (Applause.) And we are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam. (Applause.)
They do in fact have religious leaders – albeit bad ones – but tell the truth, they are imams.
Barack Obama is playing semantic games while we are in an actual war.
You know all those Christians, Jews, Buddhists and Hindus running around beheading people? No, me neither. He seems to think the analogy makes sense.
Of course, the terrorists do not speak for over a billion Muslims who reject their hateful ideology. They no more represent Islam than any madman who kills innocents in the name of God represents Christianity or Judaism or Buddhism or Hinduism. No religion is responsible for terrorism. People are responsible for violence and terrorism. (Applause.)
Right before the speech, Bill Donohue, president of The Catholic League, was on Neil Cavuto’s show and basically said Barack Obama is hard left and pathological.
Barack Obama’s speech did nothing to counter that assessment.
