Veiling Political Islam

Michael L.

Yesterday, on Meet the Press, Attorney General Loretta Lynch told interviewer Chuck Todd that the Obama Administration intended to release a partial transcript of Omar Mateen's 911 call wherein he pledged his devotion to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

When asked why the administration intends to only produce a partial transcript we get the following exchange:

You say partial. What's being left out?


Well, what we're not going to do is further proclaim this individual's pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups and further his propaganda.


So we're not going to hear him talk about those things?


We will hear him talk about some of those things, but we're not going to hear him make his ascertains of allegiance and that.
This is very typical of the Obama administration.

It will do everything within its power to obscure the real source of Mateen's rampage, i.e., the international movement for political Islam (Islamism). Although the world is rightly focused at this moment on ISIS - what with their ever more creative ways of slaughtering Christians and Yazidis - the real problem is not merely that one malignant organization.

The real problem is a broad and amorphous theocratic-political movement out of the Arab-Muslim Middle East that calls for the oppression of women, the murder of Gay people, and the genocide of the Jews.

And it is precisely the fact and nature of this political movement that Barack Obama seeks to obscure from the American public which is why they're editing references to political Islam out of the transcript. What the Democratic Party, and the Obama administration, do not want is for people to associate the Jihad with the Jihad. What they do want is to deflect any criticism of Islamism into a defamation campaign against the NRA and Donald Trump.

That is, their intention is to use the slaughter of about 50 innocent Americans for the purposes of personal political gain.

From the comments under the youtube video:

In other words, you're gonna edit out all references to Islam and the real reason why he did it.
fellowservant is correct. The progressive-left and the Democratic Party will seek to blame this most recent Jihadi massacre on American "gun culture" as promoted by the NRA, as well as upon a sort-of free-floating American bigotry as allegedly exemplified by Donald Trump. What they will never do is point to the Jihad as the source of any Jihadi activity.

As far as the Obama administration is concerned political Islam is not, in and of itself, a problem.

There is no there there.

At least she's being transparent about not being transparent.
Indeed. Love the moniker, by the way.

You can bet your last dollar if the he was white they wouldn't scrub any of the transcripts form the record. In fact he would be called a domestic terrorist some how connected to a white supremacy organization.  The hypocrisy of these traitors is criminal. 
There is some truth to what Dave C has to say.

That is, if Omar was Steve and if Steve was a devout Evangelical Christian, there is no way that the administration or the Democratic Party would seek to shield Evangelicals from the storm of hatred that would be directed at them from the Democrats, themselves. Yet, because instead of an Evangelical we're dealing with the Jihad, the administration seeks to veil the source of Mateen's theologically-grounded hostility.

They sure do give ammunition to the people that think Obama is in bed with ISIS.
The Obama administration is not "in bed" with ISIS. On the contrary. The Obama administration is in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood which gave birth to al-Qaeda which, in turn, spawned ISIS. Let's keep it straight.

They will edit out the gunman pledging his allegiance to ISIS.  Nice.  No one needs to hear that when the Administration is trying to paint this as a gun control issue rather than an Islamic terror issue. 
And there you have it.

  2. I find this administrations approval ratings a thing of wonder. What country am I living in?
    I did manage to get through my first 45 to 50 years having never heard of "Islamophobia." My only comfort being that no one else had ever heard of it either.
    This President and the Democrats are treating Americans with a contempt I have never seen in my lifetime. I'm just waiting for more lectures about the Indelible Positive Contributions of Muslims in American History from the Beginning, The Right Side of History, and of course, Who We Are.

    1. They no longer care what we think. We've been replaced. They've elected themselves another people. Which are being brought in by the millions.
