There is something almost unbearably sickening about an administration that is so devoid of simply understanding the nature of true evil that offering up meaningless platitudes insult the very essence of sanity. Yet, with each murderous atrocity that is perpetrated by the extremist Islamic ISIS, something nearly as equal in its formulation of sheer adolescent idealism comes another remark, like just give the terrorists a jobs program and all the murderous beheadings and burning of innocents alive will simply end.
Yet, the very administration that is supposedly heading up a yet to be formed international coalition to degrade and defeat ISIS is still stuck on “Go” because it cannot understand that you have to name your enemy first before you can “degrade or defeat” it.
But this last utterance that escaped from the jaws of Marie Harf, spokesperson for the State Department had to literally be filed as even too incredible for liberals like MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews to tolerate or stomach. According to the Daily Blaze, Harf commented that, “We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.” The people in question were ISIS beheaders.
Matthews, who is long a believer in Obama’s royal proclamations and even talked about a tingle that went up his leg when thinking about Obama’s presidency brushed Harf’s nonsensical comments aside, simply reciting s biblical saying, “The poor are always going to be with us.” Matthews was not buying the Obama foreign policy talking points that one of the best ways to counter the extreme murderous tactics and growth of ISIS is to develop job programs.
So the answer to murdering, raping and torching humans alive is to simply locate a few Wal-Marts, Kmart’s, or Home Depots somewhere in Syria, Iraq, Libya or some other sand covered country. To say that notion for a foreign relations policy solution to ISIS is naïve is to state the obvious.
The unfortunate part of this threadbare ideology that the Obama administration embraces is that they actually do believe that these nearly Satanic-enabled beliefs which the executioners of whole villages of Christians, Kurds and other Muslim minorities groups hold are job related.
For the Obama administration and the president in particular is the embracing of a narrative that dismisses any connection these Islamic extremists actually commit genocidal extermination based upon the victim’s religion or on their own perverted view of Islam.
Instead, it is easier to treat the assassins of countless innocents as merely misunderstood and misguided Muslim youth who only turned to the darker side because they were jobless.
This narrative has as its foundation a belief that will not accept that just perhaps these tens of thousands of Islamic terrorists do actually believe that they are dyed in the wool Jihadists who embrace a version of Islam that is hundreds of years past its expiration date.
Of course there is clear and convincing evidence that totally obliterates this notion. The evidence comes straight from the mouth and social media posts that ISIS so eagerly posts alongside its beheading videos. It is ISIS that states in its videos and social media posts what its intentions are and in what name they are committing the atrocities.
Nowhere in any of the posts is there even a mention that they will give up their burning, raping and murdering of innocents if only someone would take a look at their resume and offer them 40-hour a week employment along with medical benefits. Somehow that posting must have gotten lost amongst all of the other death to America and all disbelievers posts that were released.
In the end, when it comes to having a president who is timid in his approach to dealing with the enemy and protecting America from a clear and present danger, Obama has to head to the front of the class. President Franklin D. Roosevelt he is not. Roosevelt countered the Japanese aggression and merciless attack on Pearl Harbor with quick and decisive action.
This president’s timidity actually fits into Roosevelt’s iconic remarks from his First Inaugural Speech in 1933, when he said to America,”We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” But a more appropriate updated version should read, “We have everything to fear and Barack Hussein Obama is someone ISIS does not fear.”
