• Democrat Congresswoman: Obama Is ‘Working Hand-In-Hand With Islamic Extremists

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) blasted Obama’s foreign policy on Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s Real Time Friday night, claiming the president is so incompetent that he is “essentially working hand-in-hand with Islamic extremists.”

    Bill Maher asked Gabbard if she was bothered by President Obama sending troops on the ground into Syria.

    “There is something that bothers me more, which is a bigger issue that I take personally as a soldier,” Gabbard said. “If you are sending troops into harm’s way, but you have not clearly identified and delineated what the mission is or who the enemy is, then we are talking about a very serious problem. No troops should be sent into harm’s way unless you have both of those things covered and that’s the issue that I have in Syria and what’s going on there now.”

    “The administration is essentially working hand in hand with the Islamic extremists on the ground there who are working to overthrow Asaad so that they can take over and establish their Islamic caliphate,” she added.

    Maher said it’s “crazy” that President Obama and his administration refuse criticize Islamic practices or use the term “Islamic extremism.”

    “President Obama says ‘we shouldn’t even say Islamic extremism. We should say violent extremism.’ Which is just crazy. Words do matter,” he said.

    Gabbard, the Vice Chair of the Democrat National Committee, agreed and stressed the importance of identifying and defeating the enemy.

    ““It is crazy, words mean things, and this is what we need to look at as we look at how do we identify our enemies so that we can defeat them,” Gabbard said. “By saying that we are looking for thrill seeking or that economic prosperity will solve the problem—give them a big house, give them a skateboard—set them on their way, you think that is going to solve the problem? It’s not.”
