ISIS gets a pass for beheading 21 “Egyptian civilians.” They get a pass for burning a Jordanian pilot alive. They get a pass for the daily slaughter of those who they consider “unbelievers” because they’ve got “legitimate grievances.”
Really, President Obama said that:
More broadly, groups likec exploit the anger that festers when people feel that injustice and corruption leave them with no chance of improving their lives. The world has to offer today’s youth something better.
Governments that deny human rights play into the hands of extremists who claim that violence is the only way to achieve change. Efforts to counter violent extremism will only succeed if citizens can address legitimate grievances through the democratic process and express themselves through strong civil societies.Those efforts must be matched by economic, educational and entrepreneurial development so people have hope for a life of dignity.
That’s why the President supports the fascist Muslim regimes in the Middle East and hates the only democracy in the region – Israel – with such a passion. Israel is the only nation in the region where Muslims actually have the right to vote, hold office, and address legitimate grievances through the democratic process.
If the President didn’t have double standards he wouldn’t have any standards
He got called on the carpet for this stupidity, take it away Twitchy!
