hillary-terrorIn the wake of the Paris terror attacks, Hillary Clinton is doubling down on her refusal to say we are at war with radical Islamic terrorism.

World Net Daily reported on her remarks in a speech to the Council on Foreign relations:

“Hillary Clinton sees zero connection between Islamic terrorist networks seeking to create a “would-be caliphate,” the “radical jihadism” they preach, and Islam.

The Democrat front-runner for her party’s 2016 presidential nomination said Friday, “Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”

In her speech, World Net Daily also reported that Clinton stated:

“…but said acknowledging a connection between worldwide Islamic terror networks and Islam should not be done. She said doing so “gives these criminals, these murderers, more standing than they deserve, and it actually plays into their hands by alienating partners we need by our side.”

For Clinton to admit we are at war with radical Islam and that radical jihadists are inspired by their desire to create an Islamic caliphate would require her to reject the Obama regime policy and talking points she helped shape as Secretary of State.

It would also position her as standing against the “never offend anyone except white evangelical Christians” political correctness that dominates the Democrat party.

But you can’t confront and defeat ISIS unless you are willing to call them what they are – radical Islamic terrorists.

Political correctness and the tendency to blame America as its first instincts – Obama’s strategy to confront ISIS has failed.

His bluster about JV teams and ISIS being contained has proven to be nothing but hot air.

As Paris proved, ISIS is on the march and more deadly than ever.

The number one job of the President is to act as Commander and Chief.

One has to wonder what Obama, Hillary Clinton and the rest of the Democrats are more concerned about protecting – the safety and security of the American people or the public image of Islam.

While Democrats worship at the alter of political correctness, ISIS is taking advantage of their weakness.

The American people are taking notice.

Just released Fox News polling shows Clinton trailing every Republican they tested against her head to head.

These polls taken in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks show the American people are demanding a President who will call ISIS the murderous Islamic terrorists that they are and wipe them out.

Hillary is taking her cue from Barack Obama in refusing to acknowledge there is evil in the world.

And having served as his Secretary of State, she stood shoulder to shoulder with him in promoting a foreign policy of weakness that has left the Middle East on fire.

It’s amazing she even has the arrogance to offer herself as candidate for President of the United States with this record.

A normal person would hang their head in shame and slink off the stage.

But we know shame has always come in short supply when it comes to the Clintons.

Thankfully the latest polls show the American people seeing through her act.

Pretending that radical Islamic terrorists have no connection to Islam requires an ability to deny reality that is astounding even for a liberal.
