On the surface, Barack Obama’s political correctness shouldn’t be that big of an issue. After all, being afraid of being upfront isn’t that big of an issue. It’s complete cowardice, sure, but it isn’t an end of the world problem. Unfortunately, when you look deeper into why Barack Obama is so politically correct, there’s a very significant issue that absolutely must be addressed.
There’s no denying it — the terrorist attacks that have taken place in America over the past year are a result of radical Islamic extremism. No speculation is necessary; those responsible have made it abundantly clear that their sole motive was to appease Allah. None of the nonsensical excuses that the Regressive Left has come up with have successfully hidden the truth. It’s just too obvious that the cause of all of this violence is the so-called religion of peace.
When President Obama held a press conference involving the recent terrorist attacks — the bombing in New York and New Jersey as well as the knife attack in Minnesota — he refused to acknowledge the elephant in the room. Once again, he carefully danced around using the term “radical Islam,” going so far as to avoid recognizing the religion in general, and even more disgustingly, didn’t even use the word “terrorism” to describe the attacks.
As tasteless as this is, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, considering just how far out of his way Obama has gone in order to protect the reputation of Islam. In his eyes, it seems, the religion is far more important than the lives of the American people. Our lives are constantly put at risk by Islamic extremism, and the president of our country can’t even acknowledge that there is an issue here. It’s absolutely disgusting. There’s no other way to describe this behavior. It is disgusting.
In his speech, the president stated, ““We will continue to lead the global coalition in the fight that ISIL, which is instigating a lot of people over the internet to carry out attacks, we are going to continue to go after them, we’re going to take out their leaders, we’re going to take out their infrastructure. They are continuing to lose ground in Iraq and in Syria.”
If only that actually seemed to be the case. Barack Obama has been telling us for years now that he is defeating the threat of ISIS. While innocent people all across the world are violently killed by extremists from Syria, President Obama is explaining just how little of a threat they actually are. If people’s lives weren’t at stake, it would almost be funny listening to him pander like this.
But people’s lives are at stake — and we can’t afford to laugh any longer.
