4 Things To Know About Obama Censoring The Words ‘Islamist Terrorism’

It’s no secret that President Obama has refused to use the phrase “Islamist terrorism” to describe Muslim militant groups who do violence in the name of their religion. He took a lot of heat for this linguistic side-stepping during the 2015 summit on “violent extremism” in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks.

This kind of doublespeak refuses to openly acknowledge the Muslim religion, or at least a jihadist interpretation of it, as a motivating factor for terror attacks occurring globally from California and Brussels to Pakistan and Turkey.
