Obama has been repeatedly criticized for refusing to say the term ‘radical Islam.’ Now, he is addressing his critics — in a way that you won’t believe. Do you agree with him? Or are you ready for a No-BS President?
Today, President Obama said, “There is no magic to the term radical Islam. It’s a political talking point.” He claimed he doesn’t use the term “radical Islam” for the sake of defeating the enemy. He said terrorists want the war on terror to be about religion, and so he will not buy into that fight. He claimed he has never had an expert tell him that using the term “radical Islam” will help destroy ISIS.
Obama ranted, “We know who the enemy is, I know who the enemy is — ask the thousands of terrorists we’ve removed from the battle field if we know who the enemy is.” He went on, “If we paint with a broad brush and declare war on an entire religion, then we give the terrorists what they want. I will not allow that to happen.” He said, “Radical Islam is a twisted interpretation of one of the world’s greatest religions.”
He said loose talk about Islam is fueling the enemy. He called out Trump for repeating his idea to ban Muslims from the United States. “Where does this stop?”, he asked. He mentioned that the terrorists involved in the Orlando, San Bernardino and Fort Hood attacks were all American citizens. He failed to mention all of them were Muslim, and that their parents all stem from the Middle East.
Obama also said we need better gun control measures to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists. He also stated measures are being taken to cut off the money flow to ISIS, and he used the opportunity to try to push through a cabinet member. He tried to make it sound like ISIS is on the run, and said the terror group is having a hard time paying its soldiers.
