Last week a “suspected” radical Islamic jihadist opened fire on two military facilities in Chattanooga, Tenn., killing four Marines and one Navy sailor before finally being gunned down himself by local law enforcement.
“Suspected” is in quotes because, once again, the federal government under President Barack Obama is going out of its way to avoid mentioning the fact that the shooter was Muslim or that his actions constituted an act of terror.
Yet again, our nation has been attacked by “those who shall not be named,” as Obama refuses to utter the words “radical” “Islamic” and “terrorism” in the same sentence.
As can be seen in this take-off of the classic game show “Wheel of Fortune,” Obama can’t even name the enemy when their name is literally right in front of his face (H/T Allen B. West).
As a side note, the only letter missing from the puzzle is the letter “I,” which one would presume to be the favorite letter of our narcissist in chief.
However, in what has now literally become a joke, Obama is simply unwilling or unable to put an actual name on the very real enemy we face, even when they proclaim who and what they are in their own name. (See: the Islamic State is neither Islamic nor a State, discuss.)
Our nation needs a leader who doesn’t always bow to political correctness and will be perfectly capable of not only naming but actually confronting the potentially existential threat of radical Islamic terrorism.
Maybe next year …
