Let’s Give The Platitudes Surrounding Terrorism A Rest

It’s not the job of Western leaders to define what Islam is or isn’t. It’s their job to talk honestly about what’s happening.

Following the terrorist attack in Manchester that left at least 22 people dead and dozens injured, most of them children, President Donald Trump referred to terrorists as “evil losers in life.” As expected, a number of liberal pundits mocked the president’s unrefined language. So jejune, you know?

Inadvertently or not, Trump landed on a plain-spoken, stinging moniker that happens to also be true. No matter how many girls the next Salman Abedi ends up killing, theocratic dead-enders are, in every societal, ideological, and historical sense, losers. Perhaps some blunt language will lead to some clearer thinking on the issue.

    The ones mocking Trump’s accurate description are the same ones who had to change their underwear when Reagan called the Soviet Union evil. Trump is right just as Reagan was right.

      And when Reagan described Vietnam as “a noble cause,” the groans could be heard from coast to coast.

    I’m mocking this article:
    “…theocratic dead-enders are…” LOL, its the fastest growing religion on the planet, thats not a dead end, asswipe, that’s a clear and present threat, and to make it a dead end will take a lot more than a bunch of rhetoric.

    Which Muslim terror attack is that picture from?

    • FactsWillOut

      …that should be a game show.
      Extra points for knowing the name of the victims and perps.

      • k1962

        Good point. There’s another picture he puts up of a bloody, terrified woman with burned hair reaching out that I also wonder about. There are so many of them that it’s hard to know.

        As for there perps names, I’m going with Mohammad.

        • FactsWillOut

          Indeed.

          …as for the victims…the judges are still out on naming them “infidel sluts” or “kaffir.”

      I believe the picture was taken at the entrance driveway of the
      Nairobi shopping centre after the massacre.
      Huge loss of life inside and outside. I recall it happened 5 or 6
      years ago.

        I remember that attack. It was horrible and prolonged and vicious (not to minimize the violence of any of the Muslim terror attacks). Thank you for answering my question.
