Once again we see that Obama and his ilk are putting us in danger by refusing to understand the scope of the threat confronting not only the USA but all of western civilization. In a new interview a State Department spokesperson foolishly said that we are “at war” with people who kill “in the name of a variety of causes.” Uh, no, we are at war with people who kill in the name of Islam. There is no “variety” to the cause of world wide terror.
There isn’t any “variety of causes” spawning world wide terrorism. It is Islam alone that is responsible for this. Yet here we have the dimwitted Marie Harf of Obama’s Dept. of State claiming that terror from a “variety” of ideologies is being perpetrated. This is simply untrue.
All this just so Obama can avoid saying “Islamic terrorism” so that he can try to protect the religion of his youth. All this head-in-the-sand BS is killing westerners and Muslims alike every single day.
This is the sort of tortured, PC hoop jumping that puts us all in danger because it prevents us from facing the real danger confronting us and causes our officials to waste time, energy, and money on things other than what really threatens us all.
There simply isn’t any other “variety” of violent extremism that threatens the world. There is one flavor and it is Islam. And Obama’s feckless reply to this puts us all in danger.
Martha MacCallum: Every time we see this exchange it seems like the answer is so tortured. It’s so difficult to say what everyone around the world feels so clearly it is. Leaders have said in Canada, and Australia and Paris where they have felt it so personally, they’ve all said quite clearly that the battle is against Islamic extremism. Why is that so hard to say?
Marie Harf: “Well, it’s not hard to say but it’s not the only type of extremism we face. I would recommend people look at this administration’s counter-terrorism record… Much of it is Islamic. But some of it is not. So we’re going to focus on all of the different kinds of extremism. With a heavy focus on those who do this in the name of Islam. We would say falsely in the name of Islam. But there are other forms of extremism.
MacCallum: Tell me, what other forms of extremism are particularly troubling and compelling to you right now?
Harf: Well look, there are people out there who want to kill other people in the name of a variety of causes.
