On Wednesday, January 4th, President Obama attended a military farewell ceremony at Joint Base Myer in Arlington, VA. While he was there he had the nerve to say: “no foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland these past eight years.” Many Americans, including myself, dropped our mouths! WTH?!
Obama is delusional. Of course, this is coming from a president who refused to even utter the words “Radical Islamic Terrorism” during any time in office and instead labeled these incidents as “workplace violence”. Unfortunately, Friday’s shooting at Fort Lauderdale Airport (FLL) is no different. Don’t expect Obama to recognize it as anything different.
H/T Fox News Insider:
President Barack Obama spoke Wednesday at Joint Base Myer in Arlington, Va., for a military farewell ceremony.
While speaking, he touted the fact that “no foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland these past eight years.”
In response, people immediately pushed back against this statement on Twitter:
Ft Hood, Texas – 2009 – 12 killed, 31 wounded; victims were all military except for 2 civilians. Killer – Major Nadal Hasan petitioned to become a citizen of the Islamic State. Hasan was upset about his upcoming deployment to Iraq.
Boston, Massachusetts – 2013 – 3 killed, 100 injured. Killers were two brothers, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, both radicalized here.
Moore, Oklahoma – 2014 – 1 woman was decapitated at the food plant where she worked. Killer converted to Islam.
Chattanooga, Tennessee – 2015 – 4 Marines and a Navy officer killed. Killer, Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez opened fire at a recruitment office before heady to a naval center.
San Bernardino, California – 2015 – 14 people killed, 22 injured; Couple – Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik – assembled weapons for over a year.
Orlando, Florida – 2016 – 49 people killed, 53 injured at LGBT nightclub. Omar Mateen was responsible for the deadliest mass shooting in America.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida – 2017 5 killed, 8 injured. Shooter – Estaban Santiago, according to CBS sources said he was forced to fight for ISIS.
I know this is just a short list of the entire list of tragedies caused by radical Islamic terrorists in America during the last 8 years. Yes, Obama – these were terrorist attacks ON American soil, NOT workplace violence!
It’s absurd to think that our president can still NOT utter the words of truth – radical Islamic terrorism. It’s disrespectful to the Americans who have died in the hands of these terrorists to not recognize this problem for what it is. You can NOT have open borders and invite millions of illegals into our country and then expect Americans to be safe.
God Bless those families of those who have died and God Bless America! We all pray that Donald Trump will enforce the current laws and stop this insanity!
