What Obama Just Said About ISIS Proves He Has No Intention Of Defeating Them
Obama has taken heat for repeatedly downplaying the threat posed by radical Islam. He caused international ire when hementioned the Crusades at the National Prayer Breakfast, fresh on the heels of Islamic radicals massacring the editorial staff at the Paris based Charlie Hebdo.
Now Obama has raised scorn again, this time in an editorial he penned for the LA Times. The president actually asserted that the blood thirsty savages of ISIS have “legitimate grievances.”
“Efforts to counter violent extremism will only succeed if citizens can address legitimate grievances through the democratic process,” the president wrote.
The president claims that groups like “ISIL exploit the anger that festers when people feel that injustice and corruption leave them with no chance of improving their lives.” He then proclaimed that “The world has to offer today’s youth something better.”
In the president’s eyes, a good man with legitimate grievances will soon start beheading children and burning men alive if not for democracy. The president blames lack of democracy instead of rightly pointing to an ideology that motivates many to fight ancient wars and hold onto archaic beliefs. Beliefs such as the sun revolving around the Earth.
Egypt and Libya are prime examples of democracy in the hands of an uncivilized people. Democracy must follow an appreciation for human life and liberty. Without those tenets Democracy is simply a tool for the majority to crush the rights of the minorities. Perhaps the president has to be aware that places like Palestine elect terrorists from Hamas, and that in Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood holds a strong number of parliamentary seats.
The president says it’s up to the world to offer the youth of these nations something better. He claims oppressive regimes cause phenomenon like ISIS. The reality is radical Islam is in and of itself a threat, and that the indoctrination that teaches extremist adherence to that faith is what bolsters the armies of ISIS. While blowback may exist in many cases, moral individuals would never turn to such an atrocious entity as ISIS. Only those who already believe in Jihad would follow an army that massacres children, rapes women, and burns men alive.
