Is Brian Williams Crazy?

In the immediate aftermath of the ISIS terrorist attack in Munich, Germany, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams mused, “And why does it feel so strange to kind of root for it not being ISIS?”

Is Brian Williams Crazy

Let me respond to his question. It should feel strange to root for such a thing. Why root for the enemy? Would Christian terrorists or crazy right-wingers be preferable culprits?

Can you imagine anyone during World War II saying, “It feels so strange to kind of root for that bombing of London not being the work of the Nazis?” How many different enemies does Williams want?

Williams explained his irrational rationale – his deep desire – “to break the cycle [of ISIS] even though every death is an absolute tragedy and this just means we have deranged people without the affiliation?

He would prefer this attack had been committed by “deranged people” not affiliated with ISIS. Is Williams a “useful idiot” for a global terrorist network, a “fellow traveler” with those who seek to destroy Western Civilization?

Is Williams serious? In addition to being at war with a vast army of cruel barbarians intent upon destroying us to achieve their religious/ideological utopia based upon the Koran, Williams also wants more “deranged people” not affiliated with ISIS for us to combat.

Why? So he can feel good about being inclusive and dismiss the reality of Islamic jihad?

Williams’ sense of right and wrong requires believing that all religions are equal and all religions are capable of the barbarism on display almost daily in the news. No! They are not.

The Left’s constant moral equivalence during the Cold War between the West and the Evil Empire has shifted to an equally insane and suicidal moral equivalence between Muslim jihadists and Christian conservatives peacefully engaged in the political process.

Ever on the alert for mythical Christian terrorists to condemn, the Left is willfully blind to the Islamist threat we face every day.

But Williams merely follows in the footsteps of his ideological predecessors and comrades and who have been redefining terrorism for years.

In the immediate aftermath of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, many commentators and members of the mainstream media jumped to the conclusion that that terrorist attack was committed by the “extreme right,” anti-government groups, or the Tea Party.

Few considered the most obvious culprit: a radicalized Islamic jihadist. An astonishing banner headline appeared on the Salon website: “Let’s Hope the Boston Marathon Bomber Is a White American.” Williams’ musing mirror Salon’s perspective.

The time has come to end the identity politics and political correctness which have plagued our nation for so many decades. Identity politics and political correctness have weakened America in every area of life and placed our nation and our people in jeopardy.

Let’s stop this nonsense!

Let’s recognize the enemy, name him, and defeat him!

While we still can!

CPAC: This Election is About Survival

With the White House and its supporters in denial over the existential threat that Islamic jihadists pose to Americans at home and abroad, Brigitte Gabriel, the Founder and President of Act for America, calls the 2016 election an “election about survival.”

CPAC2016-06

Just as world leaders united after the Charlie Hebdo attack, Americans need to be united against this jihadist threat, boldly speaking out and confronting evil.

Act for America is providing just such an opportunity this September, empowering citizens from across the country to let their voices be heard on Capitol Hill.

National Security Conference

Gabriel announced that, “Act for America is holding our annual National Security Conference in Washington, D.C., the week of September 11th. We thought, what better time to hold a national security conference than the week of September 11th, in Washington, D.C., reminding our elected officials what’s at stake and why we need to secure the country.”

She pointed out that, despite differences on various political issues, we must stand united against the savages who seek our destruction. Those who have died at the hands of Islamists bent upon creating a global caliphate can do nothing. Those of us who are still alive live to fight both in their memory and for our own lives and liberty.

In Gabriel’s words:

“I don’t see any of the dead 3,000 Americans that died on September 11th, 2001 demonstrating right now for either pro-Obamacare or anti-Obamacare, pro-gay or anti-gay, pro-abortion or anti-abortion. They are as dead as dirt.”

Making the contrast, Gabriel continues, “Let’s make sure we stay alive so our children can have the freedoms and live in a safe country where they can express their opinion about whatever issue they feel so strongly about.”

Our Survival is at Stake

Will we defeat this jihadist threat or will Western Civilization as we know it be destroyed? If the answer matters to you, then heed Gabriel’s words: “Right now, the national security issue is the most important issue so I urge people to join us, this year more than ever. This election is about survival.”

Act for America exists to provide education that leads to action. Therefore, it is hosting its National Security Conference with the intent of national and cultural survival.

“We need to be in D.C.,” says Gabriel. “Our elected officials need to see our faces. We need to get tens of thousands of people to Washington, D.C. for the conference. We already have 18 members of Congress scheduled to speak at our national conference. It’s going to be an amazing time to be in D.C.”

Let Your Voice Be Heard

It is easy to think that one person cannot make a difference. This is a defeatist attitude. Act for America exists on the belief that an organized constituency – consisting of individuals from across the country – can make a difference.

Gabriel hears that defeatist attitude all the time, with people telling her, “What is my congressman going to do? He’s not going to listen to me. He needs to hear from 50,000 people.” In response, Gabriel encourages them, advising that if they participate in the National Security Conference, then their voices will be heard – where it matters!

Act for America is doing all it can to let your voice be heard.

“Not only do we want people to come, but we schedule appointments for them with their elected officials. If you are coming to D.C. as part of our national conference, and you want to meet with your senator, and you want to meet with your congressman, we will call your senator or congressman, we will line up a meeting for you. All you have to do is show up. You don’t have to lift a finger. Who else can give people this opportunity to sit down with your congressman or senator on Capitol Hill and let them know how you feel?”

Gabriel promises: “We’re lining up an appointment for you to sit down in front of him or her, in his or her office, on Capitol Hill. If for nothing else, this is your opportunity to make your voice heard. This is a time when people need to come to Act for America’s national conference.”

Gabriel concludes: “Go to ActForAmerica.org. Sign up now. We have the early registration, the Early Bird Special. … It will be the most important decision you made this year.”

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.”

[This is the third in a four-part series. See Part I – “CPAC: Exclusive Interview with Brigitte Gabriel,” Part II – “CPAC: Homegrown Terrorism is Greatest Islamist Threat,” and Part IV – “CPAC: This Election is About Survival.”]

CPAC: Homegrown Terrorism is Greatest Islamist Threat

I asked Brigitte Gabriel, the Founder and President of Act for America, what the greatest Islamist threat is that America faces right now? She replied with two words: “Homegrown terrorism.”

CPAC2016-04

She continued, “This is something that everybody walks around concerned about – what’s the next attack? We had San Bernardino and, after San Bernardino, people really started thinking: ‘Wow, this could have been my co-worker!’”

Heartless Terrorists

Speaking of the San Bernardino attack, an outraged Gabriel observed, “Here’s a co-worker that goes in there – at a Christmas party, no less, where we are celebrating love and gifts and the season of giving – to kill the same co-workers that gave him a baby shower the week before!”

In tune with a growing sense of urgency across this nation, Gabriel pointed out the chilling truth about this jihadi menace: “When you realize that we now have been infiltrated with cold-hearted killers that have no conscience, that have no heart, that have no values – or at least they don’t share our values – that’s the greatest threat right now.”

Even through the filtered lens of the media and denials by the government, Americans are well aware that they are endangered by radical Islamists intent upon their destruction. Combating jihadists in every sphere is crucial.

Consequently, Gabriel advocates for grassroots efforts to achieve national unity in combating this national, indeed, civilizational threat.

“Americans need to come together and understand how we can secure our community, how we can pressure elected officials to make the right decisions and pass the right bills to protect national security, and how our government can make the right decisions as a player in the global world that is now threatened by the rise of radical Islam worldwide.”

We Are No Longer Invulnerable

Our world in this 21st century is vastly different from the end of the last. Cutting-edge technology and social media have transformed the way we think and live. Travel and migration gave increased exponentially, and concerns over border security have reached new heights.

“Let’s face it,” Gabriel cautions, “We are no longer operating on an island. We are no longer separated from the rest of the world. Airlines, Internet, the way we travel nowadays, this is a different world from the world of the 1950s. So the enemies are coming here to our shores. They hold our passports, or they came here by a refugee visa, or they came by a visa they obtained at one of our embassies in any country around the world.”

Victory or Dark Ages

Therefore, warns Gabriel, “we have to be very careful, and our next president has to be very careful, in what contracts we sign with what countries, whether they have our best interests at heart. That’s why Americans have to make very important decisions coming up the next election.”

Indeed, Gabriel asserts, “the next election is an election about survival! It is no longer about [differing political points of view]. Right now, the decisions we are making for the next election is a decision about the survival of not only the United States but the survival of Western Civilization.”

According to Gabriel, Americans are presented with a stark choice between survival and destruction. She conveys a sense of urgency as she warns, “America stands as the vanguard, as the protector of Western Civilization. America is the superpower of Western Civilization and the next four years are going to be the deciding factor whether we survive as a nation and as a civilization, or we die and go back to the Dark Ages driven by ISIS.”

CPAC: Exclusive Interview with Brigitte Gabriel

Brigitte Gabriel is as dynamic and passionate in person as she is on TV. Despite a hectic media schedule at CPAC, Gabriel, Founder and President of Act for America, graciously granted a sit-down interview at the conference.

CPAC2016-03

I asked Brigitte about her mission to save America from Islamic jihadists. Gabriel explained how Act for America came into being. She said,

“I started Act for America because I realized that while there is a lot of education about radical Islam, people were hungry for information. They wanted to be informed. There’s plenty of information out there and I realized that in the 14 years since September 11, there have been books written, mine included – two New York Times best-sellers – and articles out there. People forward emails to each other.”

Coupling Education With Action

But then, people would ask her, “What can I do? Give me something to do!” So, she realized “very quickly that while education is important, education by itself is not sufficient. Education must be coupled with action.”

A Scripture came to my mind validating her conclusion. The apostle James exhorts Christians not to deceive themselves by only hearing the word, but not doing anything about it. James wrote, “For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was” (Jas. 1:23-24).

Far too many people have witnessed the dangers facing America without addressing those dangers. Brigitte Gabriel is not one of those people. She couples education with action. It is not surprising that the first word in her organization’s name is “Act.”

Empowering Americans

With her characteristic fervor, Gabriel “launched Act for America to not only educate the American public about the threat of radical Islam, but also to inspire and empower average citizens to become engaged and involved and make a difference on their level, in their own community, no matter where they are.”

Act for America is “now the largest national security grassroots organization in America,” she said. “We have 300,000 members. We have 1,000 chapters nationwide. We have a full-time Director of Government Relations on Capitol Hill.”

Through her organization and her advocacy, Gabriel empowers citizens to engage their elected representatives by providing them with Action Alerts concerning impending legislation and giving them a means to interact with those who have the power to pass or defeat those bills. Gabriel explains the process:

“We monitor what bills are coming down for a vote. We send the bill number out to our members who are signed up on our emails and say, ‘Here is the bill number. Here is the name of the sponsor – Congressman So-And-So, Senator So-And-So. This bill is coming down for a vote. Make sure you call your elected officials and get them to vote for it or sponsor it, or to co-sponsor it.’ And this is how the average citizen can make their voice heard before a bill is voted on.”

The best way to enact good laws or defeat bad ones is to be proactive and preemptive, to get involved while the laws are being crafted and deliberated.

An Organized Constituency

As Brigitte put it, “A lot of people always ask, ‘Oh, my gosh, I cannot believe they voted for that stupid bill. How can my congressman do something so crazy?’” Gabriel urges them to get involved and express their views before it is too late.

Gabriel advises them to bombard their elected officials with phone calls and emails, explaining, “When 25,000 phone calls coming from all over your state saying, ‘Don’t you dare vote for this bill or we will oust you next time on election day, don’t you think that makes a difference? Of course, it makes a difference. That’s what elected officials fear the most and that is the voice of an organized constituency that can impact the election on election day. That’s why they listen to what their constituents have to say.”

The power of an organized constituency can be effective and get things done. As Gabriel notes, everyone can be involved and no one is too inconsequential to make a difference. She says, “we empower constituents. We empower the average American, no matter where they are, no matter what little county they live in, no matter where they live. We make their voice powerful.”

Let us all act before it is too late!

Left Wrong on Biggest Stories of 2015

The AP recently listed the top ten news stories of 2015 – and the Left was wrong on every one of them!

Left Wrong - 2015

The pacifist and radical Left, especially as epitomized by the Obama administration, rejects the very notion of a war on terror and denies the existence of Islamic terrorism in America. It prefers to wage war on climate change (a hoax), endemic and institutional racism (a myth), and law-abiding gun owners (a bogeyman), while championing the dissolution of America’s social fabric (e.g., gay marriage and the gay agenda).

1 – Islamic State

The Islamic State was the number one new story of 2015, with good reason: Islamist jihadists have created a terrorist nation-state which is gobbling up whole swaths of the Middle East and their vision of a global caliphate stretches around the globe, with climactic terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino which serve to underscore both their ambitions and their zeal.

Even in the face of the latest atrocities, the Left in general, and the Obama administration in particular,[1] reflexively defend Islam. Even in the face of savage brutality immune to reason, they seek to negotiate peace with these predators.[2] They view poverty – not religious ideology – as the motivating cause of terrorism.[3] Indeed, they hold politically correct conferences which teach the West how to capitulate to Islamists.[4] Refusing to accept reality, they really think that ISIS is contained[5] and the war on terror is over.

2 – Gay Marriage

After decades of indoctrination (via public education, entertainment, academia, and political correctness), a significant number of Americans have fallen for the gay agenda. The Supreme Court recently “settled” the issue of gay marriage. The Left was ecstatic!

The gay agenda has further infiltrated a number of churches,[6] causing them to preach a false gospel. Gay activists seek to stifle the true gospel through the power of the state and mob action (e.g., Sweet Cakes Bakery, Memories Pizza).

The Obama administration has succeeded in its goal of fundamentally transforming America[7] away from traditional values and its Judeo-Christian roots.

The Left champions gender transformation and self-identification as a different race[8] as acts of courage. America is becoming lost in a fog of immorality and tyranny[9] – while the Left applauds.

Kym Davis was denounced for standing up for truth, morality, and the law[10] when she removed to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

3 – Paris Attacks

Islamists committed notorious terrorist acts in Paris in 2015. In the first instance, Obama snubbed the Parisians[11] even as the world stood with them.[12] Right-thinking people advised Obama to stand in solidarity[13] against these terrorists. After the latest attack, Obama continued to insist that climate change is a greater threat than jihadists. The Left, as a whole, went bonkers over that attack, blaming everyone but the terrorists for their terrorism.[14]

4 – Mass Shootings

“Mass shootings” is AP’s catch-all category which includes typical criminal activity, atypical massacres committed by the mentally ill, shootings by white and black supremacists, and Islamic acts of terror. Failure to differentiate between different kinds of violence precludes prevention of that violence.[15]

Unable to split different types of violence into appropriate categories, the Left is left with only one solution: gun control.[16] Indeed, the Left’s answer to all violence, whether committed by criminals, crazed individuals, or fanatical terrorists, is … gun control![17]

The reverse is actually true: more guns, less crime. Gun control is a form of appeasement to criminals. Charles Cooke provides an excellent and thorough explanation and analysis of why the Second Amendment arose and remains relevant today. Moreover, the weapons used in San Bernardino massacre were already illegal.

In addition to reflexively screaming “gun control” at every instance of violence, the Left is wont to wrongly affix blame, usually on conservatives[18] or Christians. For them,

5 – Black Deaths in Encounters with the Police

AP’s sole focus was on the allegations of police brutality and murder and the rationale behind the Black Lives Matter movement, with zero interest in the perspective of the police and the targeting of police for assassination. The Left seems largely apathetic about the illegitimacy of most of those allegations.

“Hands up; don’t shoot” was a fraudulent narrative from the beginning,[19] yet the racial grievance industry continues to regard it as factual.[20] This is one of the Left’s most cherished narratives.[21] As a consequence of perpetuating this racial myth, Ferguson went up in flames.[22] The lives of countless police officers across the country were threatened (some were killed).[23]

Despite all the hype from Black Live Matter activists and the eagerly-complicit media, their memes are false.

Just as the Left refuses to place the blame for terrorism on Islamists, for crime on criminals, for mass shootings on the mentally ill. The Left also refuses to place the blame for dysfunctional black communities in major Democrat cities where it belongs: fifty years of Democrat policies.

Instead, the Left denies the astonishing progress made to achieve Dr. King’s dream[24] and, instead, encourages more violence in the name of alleged black victimhood and black entitlement.[25] Escalating violence in Baltimore[26] is but one of many examples. The “Ferguson Effect” endangers whole communities, including blacks.

6 – Terrorism Worries

Despite the Left’s protestations, Islamic terrorism has been on the rise in America[27] ever since President Obama took office. The AP’s sole entry in this category is the San Bernardino massacre. It completely ignored the many Islamic terrorist attacks committed in the United States[28] during the Obama administration.

The Left regularly employs Orwellian word games for ideological and political purposes. They continually try to redefine terrorism[29] to exclude the actual terrorists committing terrorism and to include their political foes: conservatives[30] and Christians.[31]

Ever-ready to deny the existence of Islamist terrorists,[32] the Left perpetuates the notion that Christians and conservatives are a far greater threat.[33] Perversely, they want to believe this nonsense.[34] A recent poll confirms this observation.

7 – US Election Campaign

The AP only names Trump, Clinton, and Sanders. It totally ignores every[35] Clinton[36] controversy.[37]

The media’s singular obsession with the Trump Phenomenon serves multiple purposes. First and foremost, ratings and money. Second, it enables them to tarnish all Republicans with the Trump brand. Third, it diverts attention away from more credible, serious, and substantive candidates. And fourth, it provides cover for the many character and candidacy flaws of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

8 – Climate Change

That climate change – a non-story – came in number eight on this list shows the extent to which the White House[38] and liberals will promote this myth. Headline: “Obama’s EPA – Holiday Meals Cause ‘Global Warming’’

Meanwhile, despite its efforts to hype global warming, the media ignores those stories which disprove its thesis.

Climate doomsayers have been around for over a century!

9 – Charleston Church Shooting

The Charleston massacre by a white supremacist made the list, fitting the media narrative of black victimhood and white racism. Finally, this very real tragedy gave the Left a singular, high-profile of white villainy. This tragic event, roundly condemned by everyone, sparked a massive campaign to destroy all things Confederate or Southern, from the flag to statues and monuments for Confederates and even America’s founding presidents! (Strangely, college campuses remain awash with courses, posters, and memorabilia exalting the Castro regime and other left-wing causes.)

But the actual surviving victims of the massacre and the citizens of Charleston exhibited genuine Christian charity in their grief.[39]

For the Left, America’s greatest threat comes from whites, conservatives, and Christians. Hence, the media silence over a gay, black supremacist, and Democrat who committed terrorist acts.[40]

10 – Europe’s Migrant Crisis

Last on the Top Ten list, Europe’s migrant crisis exposes the failures of the Obama administration’s strategy of appeasement and disengagement from the world.

Having made America weaker, Obama claims the opposite.[41] Obama’s appeasement of Putin emboldened Putin’s quest to recreate the Russian Empire.[42] Instead, Obama’s policies frustrate America’s friends and strengthen America’s enemies.[43]

Obama’s precipitous withdrawal from Iraq and hands-off approach to Syria created ISIS and enabled it to seize massive amounts of territory and expand its reach globally.[44]

Yet, Obama admits he has no strategy[45] (while claiming it is working) and denies we are at war.[46]

Still, the State Department has the chutzpah to assert as one if its accomplishments in 2015: Bringing Peace, Security to Syria.” Tell that to the Syrian refugees!

Willful Blindness to Reality

Two jihadists massacred people at a Christmas party and the Left refuses to call it Islamic terrorism.

Blindness

While events were unfolding, the “mainstream” media and liberal blogosphere was awash with speculation that white, Christian, anti-government militia were behind the attack. They appeared to relish, yet again, an opportunity to bash both Christians and conservatives and to continue their efforts to redefine terrorism away from its real meaning and source.

But the moment it was discovered that devout adherents of Islam were the attackers, the term “terrorism” lost its relevance and the religious motivation behind the attack became moot.

The preferred liberal narrative of widespread Christian terrorism and denial of Islamic jihad was again was thwarted by reality.

Their perverse logic emanates from a distorted worldview in which America is always to blame for having exploited the world and must atone by humbling itself before dictators, tyrants, and terrorists. Only then will we be at peace.

In the immediate aftermath of the San Bernardino massacre, Salon published an article entitled, “Syed Farooq is an American: Let’s stop the Muslim vs. Christian debate and take a look at ourselves.”

Huh? Blame America for being targeted by Islamists? We’re the guilty ones?

The “American,” Syed Farooq, clearly didn’t think very highly of America or his fellow Americans. Farooq waged a religious war on us.

In that polemic, the writer asserted that Americans were “gleeful” at the discovery the terrorist was a devout Muslim. He further accused “the United States of brutality” and “political violence.”

Blaming America for the attack, he accused Americans of being endemically racist and xenophobic. He continued, seemingly oblivious to the reality he was denying:

“The attitudes you possess – that Arabs are beholden to violent culture, that Islam singularly produces religious evil, that Syrian refugees threaten American safety, that the Middle East and South Asia are places of mystical barbarity – have existed since before 9/11, but they seem to have a particular resonance in the current presidential election.”

Looking at the facts, Islam is indeed responsible for 99.99% of the violence perpetrated in the name of religion. It’s called jihad with the purpose of imposing a global Islamic caliphate upon the world by force and political/cultural subjugation.

The Islamists – on a daily basis! – state their goals very clearly, and they zealously act to achieve those goals, which are prescribed in the Koran. To deny this truth is irrational folly – and suicidal at that.

As for that “particular resonance in the current presidential election,” has Salon not seen the carnage being perpetrated in the Middle East by Islamist barbarians who have created a terrorist state which seeks to engulf the world? Are they not witnesses to the barbarism which has invaded Europe and is now invading America?

Emulating Obama, the Left asserts it is not American to protect Americans from those who would seek to destroy America.
