End of the American Dream
Everybody knows that what just happened in New York City was an act of Islamic terror, so why won’t Barack Obama use those words? 28-year-old Afghan immigrant Ahmad Khan Rahami only had one motivation when he planted those improvised explosive devices. He wanted to use violence to promote the cause of Islam. All over the planet radical Islam is on the rise, and we have seen more than 1000 Islamic terror attacks worldwide so far this year. But an extreme form of political correctness is causing many of our leaders to deny what is happening right in front of their eyes. In fact, Barack Obama refused to use the word terrorism when talking about the attack in New York…
President Barack Obama made no mention of terrorism in his remarks on the bombings and attempted bombings in the New York City/New Jersey region over the weekend.
He also chastised the media and urged restraint when reporting about incidents that appear to be terrorist-related.
“I ask that the press try to refrain from getting out ahead of the investigation,” Obama said. “… it does not help if false reports or incomplete information is out there.”
