Millions of Americans are angry. Part of the reason for this is because of the status quo of a continually weak president who is soft on terrorism. And he just showed us yet again how soft he truly is.
The demonstration of weakness came in spades when White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the terror threat wasn’t a war, but “just a war of narratives.”
“We can also work to lift up the voices of prominent, patriotic Muslims in the United States—there are millions of them,” Earnest said in a halfhearted attempt to defend the administration’s efforts in combating terrorism. “They can speak to the poisonous, empty, bankrupt mythology that is being propagated by ISIL.”
However, much like he believes this war is simply a “war of words,” many will look at his terminology and see an administration that is every bit as empty as its attempts to battle the ongoing issue.
The push back on social media illustrated just how fed up people are with a president who has the worst foreign policy skills since Jimmy Carter.
One individual tweeted, “New defense strategy—sticks and stones may break our bones – your bombs and machetes won’t hurt us! That’ll show ’em!”
Another individual brought up an adroit comparison between Obama and his predecessor: “To quote Bush 43, if you’re not with us, you’re with the terrorists! So where’s the Muslim leaders?”
This is a very good question and definitely worthy of further analysis: how come more Muslims do not denounce the attacks?
Although it’s hard to say, the answer might be a combination of things. Radical Muslims do not just execute non-Muslims. They also execute fellow Muslims in an immense number, so the first answer to the question might be fear. Secondly, many might be afraid to speak up simply because of the political correctness that has run amok in this country.
This isn’t just a war of “narratives.” This is a war for the very heart and soul of our world. Much like Nazi Germany, we can sum it up just like Pastor Martin Niemoller who was imprisoned at a concentration camp: “They came first for the communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a communist. Then, they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew…then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”
