While Mateen may not have been a full fledged member of ISIS, he did attend a radical mosque and he did justify his murderous actions with radical beliefs. We don't need compassion, we need to arm ourselves.
CHARLOTTE, NC, June 23, 2016 – Sometimes the present administration’s disdain for the American people and the country they supposedly serves is so off-the-wall
insane inane that it is laughable.
Case in point is Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s remarks to the media in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday when she declared that the “most effective response to terror is compassion, unity, and love.”
Why don’t we try that and see just how far it gets us. Are these people insane?
Ask Daniel Pearl if he said to his executioner, “I love you” just before his head was severed from his body.
Is this truly the best we can do to combat global terrorism?
Lynch added a direct message to the LGBT community when she said,
“We stand with you to say that the good in this world far outweighs the evil, that our common humanity transcends our differences. We stand with you today as we grieve together, and long after the cameras are gone, we will continue to stand with you as we grow together in commitment, in solidarity, and in equality.”
How many times during the past 7 ½ years have we heard our president tell us, “I’ve got your back” just before he tees it up for his latest round of golf?
Does Loretta Lynch honestly believe that the mourning families in Orlando think the administration in Washington is “grieving” for them?
Lynch went on to say that Omar Mateen’s motive may never be known. Lynch is delusional.
Mateen was shouting “Allahu Akbar” and making phone called as he gunned down over 100 people of which he murdered 49.
If it wasn’t so sad, you would think Loretta Lynch was kidding. Mateen gave us his motive in his own words:
“I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may Allah protect him, on behalf of the Islamic State.”
Dedication to Islam IS a motive, Ms. Lynch. Mateen was following the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad as written in the Koran…the Islamic playbook. That was all the motivation he required.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi gets his name from one of Muhammad’s closest friends. Abu Bakr was also one of the first converts to Islam in the 7th century and the father of the prophet’s favorite wife, Aisha, whom he married when she was six years old. Upon Muhammad’s death Abu Bakr became the first caliph.
Yet, Loretta Lynch trashes all of that historical perspective in search of a motive while calling for “compassion and love.”
Do we truly believe the Obamas sit around the White House dinner table at night and discuss how little “love” there is in the world and how we need more “compassion”?
The Islamic State called for the killing of Americans and non-Muslims at the beginning of Ramadan. Where was the “love” in that message?
Meanwhile, in Washington, the senate democrats played childish games by staging a sit-in to protest the lack of gun control laws and the need for more. That asinine symbolic gesture only served to demonstrate how inept congress has become.
Rather than buckle down and do something positive to stop terrorism, the senate sat on its butts in an effort to keep law abiding citizens from buying guns to protect themselves from “unmotivated” terrorists like Omar Mateen.
Barack Obama’s “Theater of the Absurd” presidency gets increasingly weirder by the day as the “religion of peace” grows ever more violent.
Initially, the FBI and Lynch issued the transcript of Mateen’s statement above with all references to “Allah” scrubbed from the document. It was said to have been done because, in Lynch’s words, “What we’re not going to do is further proclaims this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups.”
What she really meant was that President Obama continues to refuse to acknowledge that Mateen was a Muslim who was following the beliefs of Islam as taught by his prophet to the letter.
Yes, Loretta, “What the world needs now is love, sweet love.”
The Washington washing machine is in full cleansing mode when it comes to the subject of Islam and the “spin cycle” is the most important component of the process.
Even so, this administration will never “come clean” with the American people.
