• Hear What Dem Rep. Gabbard Says About Islam That Obama Won’t

    It’s not everyday that you hear a rank-and-file Washington Democrat call out Islamic terrorists and label them in the way they deserve.

    That’s exactly what Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, (D-HI) did yesterday on Your World with Neil Cavuto.

    “I think the danger of calling it ‘an organization’ misses the point that this isn’t about one specific group,” Gabbard said. “And until we recognize that it is this radical Islamic ideology that is fueling this, the name of the group can change, the tactics may change based on a different geographic location or what is happening on the ground.”

    If you can recall, the Obama administration has fallen all over itself–just as recently as last week–in a ridiculous attempt to not label murderous Jihadists as radical Islamists.

    When ask why the Obama administration agreed to swap Taliban members for Bowe Bergdahl when U.S. policy clearly states that we do not negotiate with terrorists, White House press flack Eric Schultz failed to coherently explain why the Obama administration doesn’t view the Taliban as “a terrorist group.” He pathetically kept calling them “an armed insurgency.”

    And that’s just one recent example of the Obama administration’s inability to call these evil people Islamic extremists.

    “Again, we have ISIS, Boko Haram, and other groups, especially in the middle east, but operating around the world,” Gabbard added. “Each of them have their own commonality of being fueled by this radical Islamic ideology. So we can’t say this is about one organization only, because if we do there is no way we can defeat this ideology, both militarily and ideologically.”
