There’s little question as to whether or not political correctness played a role in the deadly terror attack in Orlando, and now it appears as if federal agencies are going to be doubling down on such horrible policies a report from the Department of Homeland Security revealed.
For most of us, the terms “jihad,” “sharia,” and “radical Islam” all allow us to properly identify those who would indiscriminately kill people based upon their extremist beliefs, but then again most of us live in reality. Such doesn’t appear to be the case with the DHS, however, as the agency is now urging other federal agencies to completely scrub the terms from their vocabulary, according to a report from the Washington Free Beacon.
Seriously, is that not the absolute dumbest sh-t you’ve ever heard?
The Free Beacon has more:
“The department’s CVE efforts are an attempt to protect our nation’s young people from extremists who prey upon the Millennial generation,” the report says.
“The department must reframe the conversation to reflect this reality and design a robust program around the protection of our youth, which must include predator awareness and an understanding of radicalization. In doing so, our citizens will be better equipped for this threat.”
Under the section on terminology, the report calls for rejecting use of an “us versus them” mentality by shunning Islamic language in “Countering Violent Extremism” programs, or CVE, the Obama administration’s euphemism that seeks to avoid references to Islam.
Under a section on recommended actions on terminology, the report says DHS should “reject religiously-charged terminology and problematic positioning by using plain meaning American English.”
Government agencies should employ “American English instead of religious, legal and cultural terms like ‘jihad,’ ‘sharia,’ ‘takfir’ or ‘umma,’” states the June 2016 report by the Council’s countering violent extremism subcommittee.
The DHS report stated that to avoid a confrontational “us versus them” stance in public efforts to counter Islamic radicalization, government programs should use the term “American Muslim” instead of “Muslim American.”
The limits on counterterrorism terminology outlined in the report are the latest sign of verbal censorship within government imposed by President Obama. The president this week launched into an angry public denunciation of Republican critics of his policy of avoiding use of the expression “radical Islam.”
Obama sought to deny charges that political correctness was behind the policy of not linking Islamic terrorism to its religious roots, and dismissed those who favor highlighting the links as a Republican political ploy.
The comments prompted a backlash from counterterrorism experts who say that failing to publicly link Islamic terrorism to its religious tenets makes it more difficult to counter jihadist ideology.
From a perspective of national security, this is an outrageous move from this administration, who’s trying to censor reality and give terrorism another name, all of which endangers Americans. If Obama and his politically correct cronies on Capitol Hill would spend even half of the effort combatting terrorism that they do trying to convince us it has nothing to do with Islam, the attacks we’ve seen in San Bernardino and Orlando, among numerous others throughout Obama’s term, likely wouldn’t have ever happened to begin with.
This guy is seriously dangerous to our nation, and it’s utterly mind blowing that the GOP hasn’t move to impeach his stupid ass yet.
