CPAC: Islamic State Really Is Islamic

Even as Americans face an existential threat from Islamic jihadists, the Obama administration and many on the Left deny that threat and act as appeasers and useful idiots for the enemy.

CPAC2016-05

Brigitte Gabriel, the Founder and President of Act for America, addressed this suicidal insanity in an exclusive interview at CPAC.

Asked why the White House and so many on the Left are so loathe to even name Islamic terrorism, Gabriel observes, “This White House does not believe that Islam has anything to do with terrorism.”

False Narratives

This administration bases America’s foreign and national security policy on false narratives which deny the reality that everyone else observes. Gabriel notes that these policies began from the very beginning of Obama’s presidency.

“This is why President Obama, as soon as he became President, when he issued the Threat Assessment Plan in 2009 – which was the first Threat Assessment Plan he had to issue as a president – he purged all references out of our Counterterrorism Training Manuals and our Threat Assessment Plan, any references to radical Islam, Islamic terrorism, Islamic jihadism, jihad – all of it. He took it all out.”

Yes, reality was jettisoned down the memory hole. And in its place, as Gabriel notes, nonsensical Orwellian constructions have been employed:

“That’s when they replaced everything with ‘manmade disasters’ or ‘violent extremism.’ What does ‘violent extremism’ mean? What does ‘manmade disasters’ mean? Who is making the disasters? Which group of people are making these disasters right now? This is something that the White House does not want to address. They have avoided it.”

Willful Blindness to Reality

Indeed, the Obama administration and its willing surrogates in the media and on college campuses across this nation have created false rationalizations to explain away the Islamic terrorism which has engulfed the Middle East, Europe, and, increasingly, other areas of the world, including America.

According to these phony theories, ISIS arose as a result of poverty (though not in America during the Great Depression), ISIS can be negotiated into peace, ISIS is just like any other violent group, and, shockingly, ISIS is contained.

Even after the Paris and San Bernardino terrorist attacks, the Left denied reality.

Islamic Jihadists are Islamic

Indeed, the truth is so obvious, and Gabriel expressed it so well when she said:

“President Obama, unfortunately, does not see Islam as a threat to the United States right now, despite the fact that the Islamic State is Islamic. When we look at all terrorism organizations around the world, today, put ISIS aside. When you look at Boko Haram in Nigeria – Islamic. When you look at Lashkar-e-Taiba in India – Islamic. When you look at al-Shabab in Somalia – Islamic. When you look at Ansar al-Sharia in Libya – Islamic. When you look at Al Ikhwan al Muslimun in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood – Islamic.”

Gabriel continues:

“The one common denominator in all these groups that I mentioned – no matter where they live, no matter what language they speak, no matter what nationality they hold, what passport they hold, no matter what the color of their skin (you’ve got from blacks to brown skin to whites) – the only common denominator is the fact that they are all Islamic.”

A Metastasizing Cancer

Yet, despite this existential threat, and the nature and origins of that threat, the President continues to enable those who would destroy us. Gabriel urges the opposite course, contending:

“This is something our President must address. We cannot bury our head in the sand, pretending that the problem does not exist anymore, hoping it will go away. At this point, it’s not going away. It’s like cancer, metastasizing throughout the world.”

Islamists Fear Cartoons

America is under assault of Islamic jihadists and those who want to replace the Constitution with sharia law – and nobody cares!

Cartoons

The New York Times reported:

“Two gunmen were killed after they opened fire Sunday evening outside an event hosted by an anti-Islam group in Garland, Tex., featuring cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, local officials said.”

Wrong! They were not gunmen, they were Islamic terrorists!

Wrong! It was not an “anti-Islam group,” it was a pro-free speech event.

The Left responded to this terrorist attack by attacking the victims of the attack, by asserting that the cartoonists were provoking the terrorists. (Would they make any such suggestion to a rape victim?)

The Left is, again, on the wrong side. They attack the cartoonists and not the terrorists!

Even a Fox News anchor blamed the event sponsors instead of the terrorists and suggested we should submit to sharia law.

The Left never protects the speech of conservatives or Christians, but they will defend to our death jihadists who kill in the name of Allah![1]

Instead of fighting against the Islamists, they choose appeasement,[2] as if a jobs program will bring peace.[3]

Funny, huh? We need more cartoons exposing the truth about Islam.

Islamists literally seek world domination. Freedom of speech in anathema to them. That is why they so quickly pounce upon those speaking the truth about Islam. Coercion to control expression, thought, and actions.

Geert Wilders, Pamela Geller, and all those involved in this conference are heroic for standing up against such a vicious evil.[4] We must all rise up and support them.[5]

Survival requires unity against this shared existential threat.

The winning cartoon is featured in the graphic above. May we all have the courage of that cartoonist!

CPAC: Roman Genn – Solidarity for Liberty

With the Paris terrorist attack fresh in our minds,[1] celebrated caricaturist and acclaimed Soviet dissident Roman Genn spoke of the nexus between courage and liberty.

CPAC2015-07

At CPAC, Genn highlighted the threat posed by both Islamic jihad and compromise with evil.[2] The truly heroic – like the cartoonists at Charlie Hebno who knowingly risked their lives in the face of death threats – should be applauded. In contrast, he noted the easy courage of some who tweet or post on Facebook anonymously, without risk, and consider themselves courageous for doing so.

Genn also criticized Republicans for compromising and failing to live up to their principles and ideals. Instead of caving in to political pressure, “It’s time for us to be Republicans first.” He emphasized, “It’s time for the Party to give us a reason to be Republicans first.”

The GOP’s tame response to appeasement[3] from the White House[4] augurs ill for America’s immediate and future safety and security.

In an interview, Genn spoke of the Paris terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo, the courage of its satirists, and the failure of the artistic community to emulate their bravery.

Calling the attack “a horrible, horrible crime,” Genn praised the victims for their courage, saying, “they had guts and they died for it. They knew what they were getting into. It wasn’t a surprise for them.”

Speaking of – and to – the artistic community, Genn said, “Unfortunately, we’re not supporting them with our art. We’ve just exhibited some demagoguery and wore some T-shirts and did some lame drawings instead of drawing Mohammed like they did,” adding that the artistic community should create Mohammed caricatures “out of solidarity with” those courageous victims.

Speaking from experience, Genn argues that lovers of liberty should never back down from tyranny or terrorism. Rather, “When things like this happen you have to show support by” doing what those heroic victims did. In doing so, we “mainstream” courage and demonstrate fearlessness.

Genn added, “Unfortunately, our cartooning community did not exhibit those principles and did not exhibit bravery that our French colleagues did.”

The same could be said for most leaders in the Western world who appease Islamists out of cowardice or fear.[5]

“Right-Wing Islamic Terrorists”

In the wake of the Paris massacre, Bob Beckel expounded on “right-wing Islamic terrorists” – an illogical tautology which reflects and epitomizes the Left’s passionate promotion of and belief in its own propaganda.

Right-wing Islamic terrorists? Impossible!

Paris02

Non-establishment conservatives (Tea Party) – those the Left likes to call far Right – seek limited government and greater freedom. Islamists seek a global caliphate – a theocracy enforcing sharia law.

Islamists are all about government. They seek to implement sharia worldwide. Their all-consuming goal is an global, Islamic, one-world government. No dissent. Under threat of the sword (literally)!

In contrast, conservatives believe in nationalism, not transnationalism. Conservatives believe in federalism and individualism, preserving the freedom of individuals and communities to live their lives as they desire.

It is the Left who loves to tax, spend, and regulate. It is the Left which created political correctness and speech codes. It is the Left who sees government as the solution, not the problem. It is the Left which abuses the coercive power of government, intruding into every area and aspect of our lives.

Beckel’s claim is merely a continuation of decades of such propaganda and a prelude to what we can expect from the upcoming Conference on Violent Extremism, which, I predict, will focus more on the Tea Party and other right-wing organizations – and on Christians – while whitewashing Islamic jihadism.

The Left initially blamed the Tea Party for the Boston marathon massacre. More ominously, they wanted it to be a member of the Tea Party.

This propagandistic meme, comparing conservatives to terrorists, has been fraudulent from the beginning. When have conservatives ever behaved like barbarians? Beheading?

Instead of besmirching American patriots for partisan political purposes, we should be zeroing in on the real enemy: Islamic jihad.

Obama Snubs Paris, Disses War on Terror

President Obama snubbed Paris – and the world – by refusing to participate in a truly historic gathering of world leaders who met in Paris to show solidarity against Islamic terrorism.

Paris01

Wow!

The world united against terrorism!

And the President watches a football game while history is in the making!

A headline highlighting this truly global event proclaimed, “Paris Is the Capital of the World Today.” But Obama missed the memo.

Obama refuses to even admit that we are at war with terrorists of any kind, let alone to identify their source and motivation. Indeed, Obama defends the perpetrators of evil around the world. Failing to identify and name the enemy, Obama fails to offer a strategy. Indeed, we see this administration giving lip service to the defense of the nation while failing to act.

Obama would rather appease and negotiate with terrorists than fight them. Obama and his Kumbaya comrades think we can live in peace with people who want to destroy us. He, and they, prefer to empathize with and accommodate the enemy.

At the same time, Obama is vociferously opposed to Israel. What he should be doing, instead, is learning from the Israelis how to fight terrorists! Instead, Obama makes war on global warming.

Millions of people participated in this astonishing global rally, representing a sea change in world opinion, but Obama fears giving his imprimatur to the movement. He does not want to validate what he opposes.

Obama certainly does not oppose Islamic terrorism. At another time, in a different war, Obama would be called a fifth columnist.
