We’ve often heard President Obama compared to former President Jimmy Carter. And this tone-deaf moment perfectly encapsulates why.
Carter spoke over the weekend at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. It was there that he proclaimed, “I hope that all of you will use the principles of Allah and our God to bring peace and justice to all.”
While messages of peace and love are fine and all, did Peanut Man have to surface with that advice at this precise moment in history? Granted, it was before the beheading of Steven Sotloff had become public knowledge, but the speech still took place well after the execution of James Foley. We’ve got a president in office right now who just admitted that he has no strategy to fight the Islamists who have vowed to establish a Caliphate, and now we’re seeing a former president hanging chilly with members of the Islamic Society.
This isn’t about good Muslims versus bad Muslims. This is about the image that such incidents send to the world about the weakness of our leaders (and former leaders). This is about common sense. Could Jimma at the very least have waited a couple weeks? Incidentally, The PJ Tatler has some note-worthy observations about who exactly the Islamic Society of North America is.
It’s interesting how quickly Democrats rush to gain the support of the followers of Islam after radical Islamists commit brutal acts of murder. Funny how they never rush to support police officers after inner-city kids are killed in places like Ferguson. But that’s just the topsy-turvy world these jabronis live in.
