Tag Archives: Obama summit on countering violent extremism

“that’s not what we came for, to kill other Muslim’s.”

This was our President today, at The House Summit to Counter Violent Extremism, quoting an unnamed voice that according to him “Must be amplified”.

Mr. President, Whom exactly, if not Muslim’s, did they come to kill?

Why would we amplify a voice that draws a distinction between who should be killed and who should not?

It was clear this morning that your event closing speech was uncomfortable… but not in the way most of us would desire. The level of angst as you listed the groups who were committing atrocities made you appear to be sucking on lemons. you didn’t appear Angry… or sad… instead it looked like you were a school kid being forced to apologize for something you’re not sorry for. You looked as if you were being forced by some Adult to give the first part of this speech, and you were not happy about it.

I suspect there was, and is, some infighting occurring between you and your party.

While I will always disagree with the ideological foundation of your friends and associates, I think even they must be asking…

… Why would we amplify voices that see nuance when it comes to whom to kill.  Non-Muslim Good… Muslim, well… that’s just to far.

Why are we hiding behind ‘nuance’ at all?

What World do you live in?

What are you Doing?
