Obama's Complacency About Radical Islam

IStar Trek lore, the Borg was a collective of servile drone operatives that sought to assimilate other species into its “hive mind.” Something akin to that creepy groupthink arose when the Obama administration took power and sought to reformulate the so-called war on terror. Almost immediately, Obama operatives suggested that radical Islamists were no more likely than any other group to commit acts of terrorism. In fact, the very idea of terrorism — not to mention a war against it — was supposedly a Bush-administration construct unfairly aimed at Muslims. Obama apparently sincerely believed that there was no intrinsic connection between Islamism and terror; or, if there was, Islamic radicalism was no more dangerous than right-wing or supposedly Christian-inspired terror. Or if Islamic radicalism did arise, it might be mitigated by multicultural sympathy and outreach, mostly by contextualizing the violence as an inevitable result of prior Western culpability.

Precisely because the Bush-Cheney protocols had thwarted over 40 post-9/11 Islamist plots, Senator Obama had the latitude, in 2008, to campaign for the presidency on the premise that these measures were both unlawful and superfluous. After he became president and learned of their utility — and assumed the political responsibility for the consequences of abandoning his effective anti-terrorism inheritance — Obama squared the circle of embracing or expanding all the elements of the war against terror by politically correct euphemism. 

The result has been that ever since 2009, various members of the administration collective have sought, each according to his station, to bring us into the network of not associating Islamism with terror. And the Borg have certainly been diverse, as all sorts of political appointees, opportunists, and career officers plugged themselves into the hive. Obama may have killed ten times as many suspected Muslim terrorists by drone as did Bush, but we were to assume that the fact that there were no Christian, Jewish, or Buddhist victims of Hellfire missiles was irrelevant.

Shortly after assuming office as the head of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano associated the prior “war on terror” with a “politics of fear”: “In my speech, although I did not use the word ‘terrorism,’ I referred to ‘man-caused’ disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.” Again, one wishes to ask her how many Christians have been targeted by Obama-administration Predator drones.

Various members of the Defense Department soon were plugged into the new narrative of “this administration” and, as good automatons, were eager to spread the Borg directives. A memo sent by the Defense Department’s security office to Pentagon staff members read, “This administration prefers to avoid using the term ‘Long War’ or ‘Global War on Terror.’ Please use ‘Overseas Contingency Operation.’”

J.R., that article you link to is a deceitful, inaccurate, and utterly fallacious propaganda…the figures in the article are not corroborated by any statistics that I have seen. The Muslim Brotherhood Ministry of Propaganda would be proud of it.

I For one will Not be Holding Out Hope that ‘the Borg’
(the peasant citizenry and all the attendant apparchiks)
will find it’s way back to Normalcy, They voted for this
Thug, this is precisely the country that they want,
there is No basis for dialogue, conversation or engagement
with ‘the Borg’s’ they live in a bi-polar World, you either
sign on & embrace the new age Group Think (go to Twitter to
register now) or you are to be dis-credited by the propaganda
machine as a White nativist, tea-party crank, insensitive to the
changing mosaic that is today’s America and its new age vision for
world humanity and civilization.

I am Not hopeful, the Country we all loved is Long Gone and
will not be re-appearing in our lifetime – Obama & his
steady diet of nothingness is future face of America.
