The chasm between the American public and the current occupant of the White House has never been so obvious, so wide, and so unrepairable.
This weekend the nation will set record box office numbers going to see a movie, directed by one of the keynote speakers of the last GOP convention. A movie that deals exclusively with the real life drama of how the most successful American sniper in military history targeted and killed muslim terrorists as a part of the responsibility he swore to perform faithfully. That responsibility was to defend and protect the United States of America.
And then there’s that other guy who has sworn to do the same.
What did his actions consist of over the past week?
He started out verbally fumbling all over himself, refusing to identify the muslim terrorists involved in the Charlie Hebdo massacre as muslims, and he ended it by lecturing Europe (who just experienced their equivalent to our 9.11) on his theory that if “only” they would “integrate muslims better” they would be much more safe.
Most notably he did not have proper representation at a unity march against muslim terror groups in Paris. And as Bill Clinton said this week, “If Mahmoud Abbas can attend, knowing that Benjamin Netanyahu was going to be there…” Is there really any excuse for our administration?
Maybe there actually is, and maybe he revealed it Friday in his lecture to the European continent.
He said, "Our biggest advantage is that our Muslim populations, they feel themselves to be Americans. There is this incredible process of immigration and assimilation that is part of our tradition," he said. "There are parts of Europe in which that is not the case and that's probably the greatest danger that Europe faces.”
Besides the fact that it sounds annoyingly arrogant, that is patently a false statement.
America has Islamic encampments right now that number just over 100 locations. One of them not 40 miles from where I broadcast daily at the corner of Broadway and Wall Street. But America suffered a loss of nearly 3000 people on 9.11, add to that the Fort Hood Shooting, the Boston Marathon blast and we’ve also endured a disproportional amount of terrorism from Muslims.
He uses the United States as a way of saying things are peachy, when in reality we are easily as vulnerable as any other freedom loving nation.
This week when Duke University wished to allow the chapel bell tower to be turned into a muslim minaret, America overwhelmingly said, “No!”
And in separate polls Obama’s handling of terrorism specifically is down to like 62% in one poll and 54% in another concerning overall disapproval.
We should not be surprised by the chasm between us and the man we elected though. He believes he is the historical figure sent in to fix all of this—but everything he touches just gets worse.
And THEN he steps up to say, “MORE” integration?
It appears to me that muslims coming to any points in the west are far more favorably treated than any of us would be were we to visit any of the muslim nation/states.
He also fundamentally refuses to recognize that the more the west has allowed integration, the more the west has been injured by it. The more accommodating the western nations have made the conditions for muslim communities, the more radicalized elements seem to sprout up.
I still can’t fathom how France has 791 locations within their borders that their police are no longer allowed to patrol, and the French courts have zero jurisdiction over.
Just like Great Britain, and increasingly the United States these “no-go zones” exist, and brainwashing and anti-western hatred is fomented.
And his great solution is to “integrate more?”
Americans saw the killers of the Charlie Hebdo staff for what they were: muslim terrorists. The President is still playing semantics. Duke University had to shut down a request from the Muslim Brotherhood. The President plays footsie with several Brotherhood members.
It is as though he doesn’t see what the real evil is, and insists there is more that America must do. But the truth is that the President says terrorists are on the run, or so he would wish us to believe.
The assessments thus far in the war against the Islamic State and Al Quada say we’ve run 1600+ sorties, and precious little see much actual impact.
So no Mr. President, “greater Islamic integration is not the answer, nor is avoiding the peace marches in France, and it is especially not helpful to release more confirmed terrorists just because they’re bored at Gitmo.
Your job is to protect and defend, and no one is asking you to surrender your life to the service of your country, but Americans will pack out an opening weekend cinema to see a movie, telling the true story of a national hero, because they sense in him something they do not sense in you.
That is a commitment to his oath.
