President Obama’s many critics have managed to rouse The One’s ire in a manner that would serve America, and the entire world, well if directed at the brutal, sub-human barbarians known as ISIS.
Unfortunately, Obama is all but blind and deaf when it comes to recognizing and acting on atrocities committed by Muslims in the name of Allah. His adamant refusal (and that of all Democrats running for the US presidency in 2016) to utter the phrase “Radical Islam” in the same breath with “terrorists,” is a despicable cowardice which America cannot countenance in these, the early days of World War 111!
As reported, Obama expressed his most passionate fire and ire for Republicans who have called for a common sense pause in the rush to flood America with thousands, or tens of thousands, of potential terrorists fleeing from war-ravaged Syria:
“President Barack Obama lashed out Wednesday at Republicans who insist on barring Syrian refugees from entering the U.S., deeming their words offensive and insisting “it needs to stop.”
“Apparently they’re scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America,” Obama said.
Mocking GOP leaders for thinking they’re tough, Obama said overblown rhetoric from Republicans could be a potent recruitment tool for the Islamic State group. He insisted the U.S. process for screening refugees for possible entry into the U.S. is rigorous and said the U.S. doesn’t make good decisions “based on hysteria” or exaggerated risk.
“We are not well served when in response to a terrorist attack we descend into fear and panic,” the president said.
Obama’s comments during a meeting with Philippine President Benigno Aquino marked his harshest condemnation yet of Republicans’ response to the Paris attacks blamed on IS that killed 129 people last week. Republicans in Congress and on the 2016 presidential trail have urged an immediate closure of America’s borders to Syrian refugees, but the Obama administration has shown no sign of backing off its plans to bring an additional 10,000 Syrians fleeing civil war into the U.S”
In Congress, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have urged at least a temporary halt in the resettlement of Syrians. Obama pointed out that he’s been waiting for a year and a half for Congress to take up a new war powers resolution to address the IS threat, questioning their newfound haste to solve the purported threat of innocents fleeing war.”
With all due respect, Mr. President, it is not Syrian widows and orphans who pose the greatest danger to Americans. Rather, it is ill-informed, bone-headed, politically-correct Democrats who continue to deny truth and reality!
