Last week’s shooting of a Philadelphia police officer by a crazed gunman, acting in the name of Islam, shed more spotlight on the worldwide threat of Islamic terrorism and the continued denial of the threat by liberals.
Edward Archer, a 30 year old Muslim, said he acted in the name of Islam, when he fired eleven shots at Philadelphia Police Officer, Jesse Hartnett, who miraculously survived the attack.
Homicide Captain James Clark, confirmed the fact that Archer said he acted in the name of Islam.
Yet, in another press conference, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said in reference to the shooting, “It’s terrible and it does not represent the religion in any way, shape or form or any of its teachings. And this is a criminal with a stolen gun who tried to kill one of our officers, has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith. That is abhorrent. It’s terrible and it does not represent the religion in any way, shape or form or any of its teachings.”
No, Archer had nothing to do with Islam. He was dressed like a Muslim, and was yelling Allah Akbar when he shot Officer Hartnett. Islam had absolutely nothing to with it.
Archer’s subsequent confession to police officers that he conducted the assassination attempt on behalf of the Islamic State also had nothing to do with Islam.
Mayor Kenney’s outrageous comments are indicative of a trend among liberals to blame any Islamic inspired terrorist attacks on the Second Amendment, or anything else, other than the real culprit, Islam.
President Obama can barely say the words, radical Islam, much less put the blame on ISIS. Secretary of State John Kerry made the ludicrous pronouncement in November, that the Paris attacks were illogical, versus the Charlie Hebdo attacks that in Kerry’s mind were logically inspired.
How is the murder of innocent people ever logical, Mr. Secretary?
After the San Bernandino shootings by Mr. and Mrs. Jihad, President Obama blamed gun owners, the NRA, the Second Amendment and only when the FBI put pressure on him, did he finally state that the murderous acts were “probably terrorism.”
But, he didn’t say ISIS or Islamic terrorism.
Obama and Kerry’s state of denial is only matched by Sanders and Hillary. Neither of those two knuckleheads can say radical Islam. Nor, can they come up with a coherent strategy to battle ISIS.
It’s obvious that President Obama and the current batch of Democrat Presidential candidates simply do not want to fight radical Islam. And, that is a problem for all of us.
Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany is not a liberal on paper, but her policy of opening the country to a flood of millions of un-vetted Muslims has all the reckless naiveté of traditional liberal policies.
Several of the ISIS thugs responsible for the Paris attacks had entered Europe, posing as refugees. As more and more evidence accumulates about how dangerous letting these people into Europe really is, Merkel doubles down by completely denying the terrorism, the rapes, the petty crimes and the murders committed by Muslim migrants.
Merkel has swallowed the basic liberal tenets of viewing the world they want it to be, rather than the way it is.
What else does ISIS have to do to convince the left that they are out to murder all of us?
ISIS has one mission, the murder of anyone who doesn’t agree with their twisted ideology and the implementation of a worldwide caliphate of Islamic evil.
Their goals are not unlike the goals of the Nazis or Imperial Japan. They too, wished to dominate and control the planet and to implement the New Order on all of us. Thankfully, our parents and grandparents had the backbone to stand up to evil and destroy it.
Where is such backbone today? It certainly doesn’t reside in the Democrat Party or with any liberals across the free world. Obama is willing to surrender all of us to the monstrous representatives of radical Islam.
Unless ISIS is destroyed; meaning every member of ISIS killed or captured, every ISIS piece of equipment made inoperable or captured, every ISIS financial asset frozen, every vestige of ISIS eradicated from the earth, the shootings and the bombings and the murder and mayhem will continue unabated across the globe.
And, as the attacks continue and the body count continues to rise, the liberals of the world will make excuse after excuse why they can’t take the fight to ISIS and radical Islam.
The liberals of the world are nearly as much a danger to freedom as ISIS.
It’s time for Obama and the Democrat Party to face reality.
Until then, it will be game, set and match to the madmen of ISIS.
