Since the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks last week, the whole world has rallied behind France in the fight against radical Islam. Nearly every world leader has spoken out against Muslim extremists…Except ours.
In the week since the terrorist attacks in Paris, Obama has refused to call them an act of radical Islam. During a press conference on Wednesday, a reporter questioned the Obama administration about why they are refusing to do this, and their response was sickening.
At the press conference, NPR reporter Mara Liasson pointed out that even the French government themselves has admitted that the Charlie Hebdo attacks were perpetrated by Muslim extremists.
“France, your ally in this effort, has put a name on this ideology, which he calls radical Islam,” she reminded him. “You have bent over backwards to not ever say that.”
Liasson then asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest why he has refused to say that, and his response was ridiculous.
“The first is accuracy,” Earnest said. “These are individuals who carried out an act of terrorism and they later tried to justify an act of terrorism by invoking Islam and their own deviant view.”
“The second is, this was an act that was condemned by Muslim leaders,” he added. “We have not chosen to use that label because it does not accurately describe what happened.”
Basically, the White House is in complete denial about these attacks. There is video footage of the terrorists yelling “Allahu Akbar” and “We have avenged the prophet,” yet Obama is still arguing that this was not a Muslim attack.
