In contrast to Obama’s comments regarding his refusal to use the expression ‘radical Islamic terrorist’ words do matter and have significant meaning and intent. When I tell someone ‘good morning’ I am showing interest in their well-being and my intent in wanting to do my part in helping them have a ‘good morning’ where I am concerned. When I tell my wife ‘I love you’ I am showing meaning that I care about her more than myself and my intent in being willing to do anything and everything possible to make her feel warm and secure. If I tell someone that I would highly advise them NOT to enter my home uninvited I am showing a significant meaning that I will protect my home from intruders and my full intent to stop them from trying to rob me and invading my home. Words have meaning and show intent. They also show identify a particular issue or problem. As a retired shrink I worked with numerous mentally ill clients. None of these people went out with a high powered rifle to climb a clock tower anywhere that I am aware. But when I worked with the criminally insane those words identified a particular sect in the mentally ill population who would most likely be the kind to climb that clock tower to do criminal acts against innocent people.
This administration wants to pull words such as jihad, sharia, and radical Islamic terrorists out of use. But these words identify the problem and specify the sector needing to be watched. Jihad is what these radical loons are trying to do. They do not want peace; they want to attack for some twisted religious goal. That religion is Islam. That is not attacking all who follow Islam but it is identifying a particular problem with Islam and those within its followers who want to kill and attack innocent people. Sharia identifies again a particular problem with Islam. It identifies the core of their beliefs which have evil intent upon the general population who do not desire to follow their religion. As sharia law wants and calls for the murder of any and all who refuse to follow Islam then it becomes the core to the evils which the world is seeing imposed upon it and the peaceful innocent people around the world. The term ‘radical Islamic terrorists’ identifies the particular problem the world is facing. It is not the average person on the street. It is not a radical group of religious people because it is not identifying a radical group of Baptist running around with a garden hose wanting to baptize people against their ill. It is identifying people of a radical mindset within Islam who are terrorists. It is not even identifying all of Islam. It is specific in identifying terrorists within Islam.
In Obama’s refusal to use the term ‘radical Islamic terrorist’ he is leaving all of Islam open for attack. His refusal to say anything remotely contrary to Islam may be his particular belief system but it is not leadership. He talks about using the military but the military is useless unless there is an identified enemy. Who are the military supposed to attack? Obama refuses to identify the enemy. In so doing Obama is protecting those who are slaughtering untold numbers globally. There is no place for these types of actions coming from any leader of any type or nation, let alone from the supposed leader of the free world. As the rest of the Democrats in Congress follow Obama’s example of refusal they become part of the problem.
It is time people cut through all the fat and got directly to the meat of the issue. America is at war. We did not want this but it has been imposed upon us. America has had members of radical Islamic terrorists come to our soil and kill Americans. Our pansy leadership refuses to acknowledge the facts and wants to divert attention upon everything other than those particular people who are attacking the US. We are not under attack by a gun. We are not under attack even by an ideology. We are under attack by a group of people who follow an ideology. These people who follow this twist ideology are making life miserable for innocent people. You cannot fly in a plane without wonder if there is some nut job in the cockpit that is going to crash your plane because he is part of the twisted ideology of jihad and sharia that calls for the murder of anyone who is not a follower of Islam. You cannot go into a mall and not wonder if there is a wacko who is a follower of jihad, sharia and radical Islamic terrorist mentality who is going to try and kill as many innocent people because they do not fit into their vision of Islam. As long as any of the political leaders refuse to specifically identify the enemy they are part of the problem. They are giving aid and assurance to the enemy as well as protect. As long as they refuse to specifically address the enemy then they are part of the enemy.
Our gutless, spineless, cowardly political leaders are not providing leadership. These milk toast politicians are nothing more the your typical ‘politician’ who just wants to bleed the people and the system of all the benefits they can muster. They have no internal fortitude and therefore make no statements of any substance. They are adding to the problem and need to get out of the way so that people who have the capabilities to lead can actually lead. These people are an insult to the courage of the Forefathers and are taking America so far away from the Constitutional nation they formed that it is becoming unrecognizable.
It would be nice if there would actually be someone in the Democrat party who would actually speak the truth about radical Islamic terrorists. There are a number of people from the Republican side who might use those words but lack all intent. To use words without intent is like asking someone ‘how are you doing’ while walking away from them. You had no intention or even care about how they were doing and simply magnified your own hypocrisy by the empty action of asking. People also need to make no mistake regarding Hillary Clinton. They need to listen not so much what she says but to what she refuses to say. She is as much of the problem and Obama and the rest of the Democrat sheep. She is no different from the Republicans who use terms without meaning or intent. The only life words have is through action.
I may not be completely sold on Donald Trump. But I know what I do not want in the leadership of this nation. What I do not want is more spineless hypocrisy. We have too many cowards who are afraid to use words of meaning. We have too many pansies who are cowering afraid to make any real stand against those who have declared war upon America and the American free way of life. We have too many foolish people who blame a thing such as a gun and not the nut-job pulling the trigger. America is at war with ‘radical Islamic terrorists’ who have declared ‘jihad’ to enforce ‘sharia law’. Our leaders need to SAY IT, AND MEAN IT! Identify the problem then give life to your words by acting upon them and eliminating those who want to kill Americans.
