Trump, Hillary and ISIS

Reported by NBC News

“Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists,” said spokesman Brian Fallon in a statement.

Do liberals actually believe that crap? The answer, I think, is yes. They are deluded into thinking that if only we could be nicer to Muslims and show how much we love them, jihadists would stop being jihadists.

This is totally bogus. As I recently explained, ISIS exists because Muslims, who have been taught to believe that the Koran is the literal word of Allah and that Mohammed was the most perfect follower of Islam and that Muslims should lead their life according to his example, are discovering what the Koran and the Hadiths actually say.

I believe that harsh anti-Muslim rhetoric will actually help to contain jihadism. If the West stops apologizing for Islam and starts looking at it more harshly, that will cause the more moderate Muslims, who genuinely want to be accepted by the West, to be more active in modifying their religion to align with Western values, and perhaps create a more clear philosophy around why Muslims shouldn’t take that stuff in the Koran and the Hadiths seriously.

  1. Right, but that’s not really what Hillary did. She made a direct, falsifiable charge and for once, she has slurred someone who won’t f’ing give up. For the first time in her public life, she will be forced to put up or shut up. This will be fun to watch.

  2. “Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists,” said spokesman Brian Fallon in a statement.

    I would have gone further than Trump and insinuated that Obama and Hillary’s policy was to deliberately overthrow pro-American dictators – Gadhafi, Mubarak – or relatively sane anti-American dictators like Assad in favor of ISIS, Muslim Brotherhood,and Iran.

    Why would we bomb Gadhafi but not help Iran’s student protesters from a few years ago or stop Iran’s nuclear program unless Obama-Hillary were intentionally installing the worst possible Muslim terrorist governments wherever possible?

    • “Why would we bomb Gadhafi but not help Iran’s student protesters from a few years ago or stop Iran’s nuclear program unless Obama-Hillary were intentionally installing the worst possible Muslim terrorist governments wherever possible?”

      I always found that mindboggling, that Obama was going around from country to country supporting the Arab Spring and calling for “(fill in the blank) must go! Until it the protests hit Iran, then nothing. Looking back, I can see that the reason is because Valerie Jarret is Obama’s brain. He doesn’t have a mid east policy, but she does.

    • I suspect he does it simply because he sympathizes with Muslim terrorism, even though I believe Obama is an atheist.

  3. There is a strategy here. They are laying the groundwork for blaming Trump if there are further jihadi attacks. See? Look what you did Donald, killing all those innocent Americans!

  4. OT, but I just saw a segment of Fiorina’s husband on CNN. It was disgusting! The interviewer was like “So you’re Mr. Carly Fiorina.” And he’s like “Yes, I am!”

    He then goes on about how much smarter she is than him, and how he retired to support her career, and blah blah blah. Fiorina isn’t going anywhere, so it doesn’t matter. But this guy gave me the creeps, you should find the video whenever it comes online.

  5. They are laying the groundwork for blaming Trump if there are further jihadi attacks. See? Look what you did Donald, killing all those innocent Americans!

    At which point Trump’s counterpoint should be: there wouldn’t have been an attack if Obama and Hillary hadn’t allowed, either intentionally or by pure stupidity, ISIS to take over much of Syria, Iraq and Libya.

  6. What’s interesting to me is the parallel to Christianity after the translation of the bible to the vernacular by Martin Luther. It took 20 years from people reading the bible, before they started communes with former nuns engaged in orgies. Listen to the hardcore history episode about the Munster rebellion.

    • What is there in the Biblical text that would have led to orgies?

  7. Hillary should start wearing a burka to show understanding and calm down ISIS. Personally, I don’t give a damn if ISIS is pissed off.

    • Maybe Chelsea will wear one during her just-announced 2nd pregnancy. Think this has anything to do with the campaign?

  8. Hilary and Obama style appeasement is interpreted by ISIS as weakness. They are more likely to attack if American leaders seem weak.

  9. “Do liberals actually believe that crap?”

    It’s an ego trip to believe that everything in the world revolves around you. So it’s less painful to think that some meeeeeeaaan part of the West is the cause of Islamism than to understand that the West – and by extension, you yourself – is actually irrelevant and no one’s being spurred into it because no one cares what you think.

    Also, we liberals really need to push a version of “Conservatism Inc.”, because some of us are in fact sane.

  10. Islam is different. The number 1 objective of Islam is found in the daily repetitive prayer of Islam and in the Quran.
    “No other God but Allah and no other religions but Islam.”
    Islam is not inclusive, but is called to violence and forcing submission. This is the root of violence

  11. ‘To put this into perspective, the billing rates for Senior Managers in India (which make on average approximately $140K in the US) are actually 20% less than the billing rates for our administrators and typists in the US! That means that Senior Managers in India are paid about 20% less than employees who have either a high school diploma or at most, an associates degree.’

    I doubt it. The technical manager that supervised an off-shore team of 12-15 people at my company was being paid a base salary of $90,000, and that was 15 years ago. I think it depends on the application. I don’t believe that you can find an individual capable of managing a portfolio accounting system and pay him less than a typist. This simply cannot be done.

  12. “I believe that harsh anti-Muslim rhetoric will actually help to contain jihadism.” Or maybe it wouldn’t. Maybe Islam resonates with those of a particular genetic makeup. Maybe that genetic makeup predisposes them to low intelligence and violence. Islam resonates with them because it is a violent religion that gives these people with a propensity for violence divine justification to act on their propensity.
