For eight years, I waited for Barack Hussein Obama and/or his sometime Secretary of State and would-be successor Hellery Clinton to utter the words "Islamic" and "terrorism"/"terrorists" in the same sentence. It never happened. Then, last Friday, in his inaugural address, PresidentTrump -- how sweet it is! -- said "We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth."
Cazart! "Islamic terrorism!" Is that what's been going on in Orlando and San Bernardino, not to mention Nice, Paris, Brussels, Berlin and other Western cities? [And don't forget Peshawar, Kabul, Baghdad, Palmyra and other Middle Eastern shitholes! Ed.] You mean these killers were fanatical followers of the Prophet Mohammed? Jihadis bent on the extermination of Christians and Jews? Why were we not told?!
In the daze of President 0 and other apostles of "diversity", "tolerance" and "inclusion", the I-word was never mentioned in the same breath as "terrorism" or "terrorists", because, you know, these misguided "lone wolves" were beset by their own individual demons, acting on their own and not as part of any ISIS or other Muslim extremist conspiracy. And they certainly didn't represent the majority of Muslims (the former Prez kept assuring us) because, you know, Islam is "the religion of peace". NOT!
For eight years, President 0 and Shrillery Clinton and John Kerry bent over backwards to make sure Islamists inside and outside the Paranoid States of America wouldn’t get upset and unleash new terrorist attacks... which they did anyway. Now, finally, the appeasers are gone and the Western world -- or the American part of it at least -- has a new leader who's unafraid to name the elephant in the room. Which he did... just like that!
I would have thought that President Trump's declaration of war on the Islamic terrorists would have been front-page news in the USA and around the world. But it wasn't. None of the media I checked -- including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and the Times of London, ABC, BBC, CBC, NBC right down to ZBC [There is such a broadcaster. Ed.] -- led with President Trump's promise of "eradicating Islamic terrorism from the face of the earth". Amazing... or maybe not.
The American media, in particular, were obsessed with numbers -- how many turned out for the Trump inauguration, who had the larger approval rating, and non-news like that. Dozens of column inches and hours of video were given to interviews with people who attended or witnessed the inauguration. There was wall-to-wall coverage of the vandals and miscreants who showed up to "protest" and scream in rage at hearing Mr Trump introduced as "President of the United States". As for the subject of Islamic terrorism, not one word did I read or hear.
On Saturday, President Trump told staffers at the CIA, "We have to get rid of ISIS. We have to get rid of ISIS. We have no choice. Radical Islamic terrorism -- and I said it yesterday -- has to be eradicated. Just off the face of the Earth. This is evil. This is evil." Those remarks were similarly under-reported, or not reported at all.
What's with the lamestream media? Did they not get the memo? It's OK, now, to stop pretending that we are all brothers, and that mutual respect and tolerance of diversity are the answers to the problems of the world in general and the Middle East in particular. It's no longer necessary, in the interest of political correctness, to downplay the threat of Islamic terrorism. It's time, now, to stand up to the Muslim extremists and do whatever it takes to end their threat to our religion, our society and our way of life! Report that, you pussies!
