War On Terror: Just hours after one of the worst terrorist attacks in U.S. history, Democratic leaders had lots to say about gun control, climate change, even bullying — everything but radical Islamic terrorism.
Former Obama aide Rahm Emanuel's maxim "Never let a serious crisis go to waste" could now be considered a Democratic mantra.
After the recent Paris terrorism that killed 130 and after radical Islamist terrorists Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, killed 14 people during a Christmas party this week, some Democratic leaders continue to exploit the tragic events to push a far-left domestic agenda that has nothing to do with terrorism.
President Obama this week at climate talks in Paris blamed climate, not radical Islam, for fostering "dangerous" ideologies. "In some ways," he said, "(climate change) is akin to the problem of terrorism and ISIL."
So how would he respond to terrorist attacks such as the one this week in San Bernardino? By taxing carbon. And by cracking down on guns through executive order — disarming terrorists' victims, not the perpetrators.
Meanwhile, Attorney General Loretta Lynch says her "greatest fear" after the attacks isn't of more terrorism but of an anti-Muslim backlash. She promises to prosecute not terrorists but those who use "anti-Muslim rhetoric" that "edges toward violence." She wants to criminalize even complaining about radical Islam.
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi likewise ignores radical Islam as a cause of terrorism, railing instead against "gun violence." She joined other Democrats in refusing to observe a moment of silent prayer to remember the 14 terrorist victims, because Congress won't enact stronger gun control laws.
For some people, apparently, even death is political.Read the rest of this IBD editorial HERE.
