HAYS, KANSAS, September 25, 2013 — Al Qaeda Shabaab murdered at least 62 people, which begs the question. Do these killers belong to any particular ideology of any specific religion?
Like virtually every terrorist attack in modern times, the killers are not Jews, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, or Hindus. They are not atheists or agnostics. This was discovered after an exhaustive investigation consisting of non-liberals shrugging their shoulders and quietly exclaiming, “Well, duh.”
Once again radical Islam has reared its ugly head. Islamists are butchering people for one simple reason. Because they can. What do they expect current Western leftist world leaders to do? Something?
Presidents George W. Bush, John Howard and Jose Aznar are all retired, as is Prime Minister Tony Blair. Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is off bunga-bunga-ing somewhere fun.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cannot save the world by himself.
President Barack Obama cannot and will not confront radical Islam because dead bodies are less important to him than his fragile ego. He came entered office determined to reverse his predecessor’s approach to terrorism.
Mentioning radical Islam by name would require him to admit that he was wrong and Bush was right. Obama’s naive approach has failed, and his outstretched hand has been slapped away. His current insistence on dialogue with Iran and Syria shows a man who is deeply committed to changing the Democratic Party symbol from the donkey to the ostrich.
During the 2012 election, Americans were repeatedly told by Obama that “al Qaeda was on the run.” He was right. They are running from nation to nation, continent to continent, while America’s Ivory Tower Professor President remains utterly incontinent.
The solution for Obama and the liberals who worship him is a medical procedure known as cranial-glutial extraction surgery.
Radical Islam must be called out by name. Calling out radical Islam is not an insult to one billion people practicing Islam. Islamists murder Muslims as well. This struggle is not non-Muslims against Muslims. It is civilization against barbarism, and radical Islamists are the same violent, backwards bunch that never left the Seventh Century behind.
This is not about “extremists,” “workplace violence” or even merely “terrorists.”
The violence in Nairobi is about radical Islamists spreading a global Caliphate. Outside of liberal university professors, this is common knowledge.
It takes a big man to admit that he got big things wrong. Barack Obama is not that man. He is always right because he says so. Something is the right thing to do because he says so.
Meanwhile, the rest of the world burns. 9/11, London, Bali, Badrid, the U.S.S. Cole, the embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, Daniel Pearl, Leon Klinghoffer, and the Munich Olympics were not enough for the left to understand anything.
If only the West were more humble, we could give peace a chance. Yet Bali is not in the West. Neither is Nairobi.
At least Obama has kept Americans safe from radical Islam, if one gives the First Golfer in Chief mulligans for Fort Hood, the Boston Marathon bombing, and the almost successful Christmas Day underwear bomber.
The next radical Islamist attack will be moments away as Obama and his elitist ilk ignore the dead bodies in favor admitting the truth. Everything the left believes regarding terrorism is wrong, has failed, and will fail.
The Bush approach worked. Normal people know it. The terrorists know it. Deep down, even some of the less obtuse Obama people know it.
