Obama, ISIS and you
Last Thursday, President Barack Obama fixed a global audience with either grim determination or intestinal discomfort and declared the islamofascist terrorist cabal known as ISIS had been “contained.” The announcement put him at odds with ISIS itself, which replied to Obama’s profession of progress by launching the worst attack on the city of Paris since the Nazis marched down the Champs-Élysées.
The complete annihilation of a man’s greatest foreign policy “achievement” at the hands of a group that he has repeatedly dismissed as “jayvee” might drive an ordinary man to at least re-evaluate his goals, if not his rhetoric. But our man Barry put “ordinary” in the rearview mirror somewhere between Bill Ayers’ living room and the back nine at Congressional Country Club. Obama responded to the blood-soaked repudiation of virtually every statement he has ever made about ISIS by bringing down the rhetorical hammer — on you.
Much as he has loudly blamed the wave of violent crime that has gripped Democrat-owned American cities on white people who own firearms and/or “racism,” Obama blames ISIS’s refusal to abide by his commands on you, you bigoted xenophobe. Actually, he claimed during an event in the Philippines that growing resistance to his program to fill American cities with unvetted Syrian “refugees” is the real cause of all this ISIS misbehavior.
“I cannot think of a more potent recruitment tool for ISIL than some of the rhetoric that’s coming out of here during the course of this debate,” Obama said.
See, you racist “islamophobe?” If we would simply throw open our doors to every Tariq, Daesh and Hassan, then the whole world would instantly transform into one happy halal party. And who could argue with him? Certainly not the people of Paris, who … nevermind.
In fact, Obama doesn’t even want to discuss the fact that his obituary for ISIS was as premature as any of the promises he made about Obamacare. He has moved on to more pressing matters, such as acting like a spoiled 9-year-old. During a press conference with President Benigno Aquino III, Obama responded to millions of Americans’ concerns over the immediate influx of dozens, if not hundreds, of thousands of the same people who produced the masterminds of the Paris attacks by mocking them:
Apparently, they’re scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America as part of our tradition of compassion. First, they were worried about the press being too tough on them during debates. Now they’re worried about 3-year-old orphans. That doesn’t sound very tough to me.
Take that, you conservative pansies! So what if somewhere in the neighborhood of 75 percent of the “refugees” who are making Europe such a hoedown are neither grief-stricken widows nor Arabic Tiny Tim Cratchits, but men between the ages of jihadi and jihadi? What’s important is that Republicans are big ol’ meanies who hate women and children almost as much as Planned Parenthood hates giving up that sweet dead baby parts swag. And quit picking on the CNBC kids, you bullies!
And don’t think Obama’s letting you get away with denying anyone the chance to take up residence in the cozy confines of the nation ISIS has sworn to burn to the ground. Wednesday afternoon, Obama promised to veto Republican-sponsored legislation that would add an FBI background check to the entry requirements for Syrian refugees. While the bill would neither halt immigration nor even impose any religious requirements, Obama called the measures “unnecessary and impractical.” And God Allah knows that anyone who would willingly attack his own citizens with IRS goons is an expert on unnecessary and impractical. If you need further proof, ask refugee Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
In what has become a wearily familiar pattern for Obama’s seven-year foreign policy face-plant, ISIS took less than 24 hours to debunk Obama’s pronunciations. Even as we learned that one of the suicide bombers in Wednesday’s raid in Saint-Denis, France, was one of the “widows” about whom Obama is so worried, ISIS supporters were stabbing a schoolteacher in Marseilles. Within hours of Obama’s juvenile dig at Americans, ISIS released a new video, this one promising attacks on Times Square. As Obama accused Americans of child abuse, footage surfaced of ISIS training kiddies in the fine art of waging jihad against the crusader infidels.
Of course, Obama’s minions have slavishly fallen in line behind their dear leader. Secretary of State John Kerry, whose haplessness has generally been relegated to a supporting role in the Obama circus, declared on Tuesday that the islamofascists who lit up the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris had a “rationale” for their barbarism. Kerry tried to draw a distinction between the animals who murder people over pictures of their “prophet” and animals who murder people over general refusal to worship their prophet. I know I’m always humbled when the guy who married Sen. John Heinz’s widow reminds me to see things from the islamofascist point of view.
Meanwhile, sheep have been bleating from farther back in the herd. The left has resurrected the rubric that blames islamofascism on President George W. Bush and the war in Iraq. In doing so, they’ve managed to sidestep at least a half-century filled with fun guys from like Abu Nidal, Yasser Arafat and Ayatollah Khomeini. But that’s only when they’re not parroting the claim that ISIS is somehow the bastard child of so-called “global warming” — and you.
