White House: Inaccurate to use phrase ‘radical Islam’ to talk about terrorists

The White House tried to explain Tuesday why it has refused to use the term “radical Islam” in describing the Islamist terrorists responsible for last week’s Paris attacks and other acts of violence across the globe.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the administration doesn’t want to legitimize those terrorists or the “warped” view of Islam they hold. Also, Mr. Earnest said, the phrase “radical Islam” simply is not an accurate way to describe the enemies of the U.S., France and other nations across the globe.

“I certainly wouldn’t want to be in a position where I’m repeating the justification they have cited that I think is illegitimate. They had invoked Islam to justify their attacks,” he told reporters. “I think what I’m trying to do is to describe to you what happened and what they did. These individuals are terrorists. … We have chosen not to use that label [of radical Islam] because it doesn’t seem to accurately describe what happened.”

The administration seemingly has taken the position that terrorists are not following Islam at all, and calling their ideology “radical Islam” could lend their beliefs a sense of legitimacy it does not deserve.

I don’t know where anyone could get the idea that these terrorists have anything to do with Islam.

I really don’t understand what the Obama administration is trying to do here. The people who should be making this argument are alleged moderate, peace-loving Muslims all over the world. They need to distinguish themselves from the people who claim they represent Islam and use violence. They need to drive the terrorists and those who support them out of their communities.

It is time to choose sides. We are on the side of civilization. They’re either with us or with the barbarians.

      They need a Muslim “Gruber” to get out there and lie their head off. Who you gonna believe me or your lying eyes is not going over. I get the feeling the WH is trying to cover for Saudi Arabia who finances terrorism and is manipulating the world energy markets.

    • piper says:

      That’s because they’re Harvard elites who know better than anyone else especially goat herders.

  2. Lulu says:

    It is the PR spin. It is not what they do but how they are perceived. The banality of evil, etc. I guess I find a marketing campaigns coming from these evil fuckers in the WH not that much higher on the moral relativity scale than the violent shits who want to end western civilization by terrorizing everyone into doing what they demand. Even that evil shit Zeke Emanuel said Obama is running out of time so he will be using the lash to whip us. The media is fully on board. True believers or terrorized they will submit. Race riots, IRS targeting, ruining a health care system, ignoring or insulting a newly elected Congress is this WH’s method of terror. Slightly more sophisticated (but not much) than killing cartoonist and cutting off heads. Both pervert language and appeal to the dumb and/or fucked in the head misfits of their target populations. Exactly how is iman Obama different than these Muslim monsters except by degree?

    So, in a nutshell ?

    A Danish linguist spent three years studying Islamic texts and says it is by far the most violent religion out there.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      Yes, it is true that over the last 2000 years a lot of bad things were done in the names of God and Sonny Jeebus. Even more bad things were done by people who claimed to be followers of Jeebus. But Jeebus never preached violence, and in the Old Testament when Yaweh wanted somebody dead he usually took care of it himself

      • leslie says:

        . . . when Yaweh wanted somebody dead he usually took care of it himself

        That’s what happens when you are an almighty god. You don’t need no help.

        Just bought the largest box of foil yesterday but forgot the olive oil. Back to the store today.
        Remember when we practice hiding under our school desks due to the possibility of the Russian invasion – so called air raid drills.

        • cynic says:

          I’ve purchased so much tinfoil over the last 7 years, that I now own stock in it.

        • DeniseVB says:

          “Duck and Cover” ! The old films are still on youtube and it’s a hoot to revisit. Like that would have saved us from a nuclear blast. (I grew up in the DC suburbs, our high school even had an evacuation plan, buses would have driven us to the West Virginia mountains). I swear it gave me PTSD. We just never knew if it was a drill or real. Much like info we get off the internet these days 😉

          • elliesmom says:

            One of my strongest memories of elementary school is of the days the playground was silent at recess except for teachers’ radios while we all waited to be blown up during the Cuban missile crisis.

          • piper says:

            We also lined up and went to the sub-basement of our school that was built at the turn of the century like we’d be really safe down there under an explosion raining down tons of rubble.

          • piper says:

            should read ‘after an explosion.’

            ” (I grew up in the DC suburbs, our high school even had an evacuation plan, ”
            I grew up in then DC suburbs and in elementary school in the early 50’s, when they were showing nuclear weapon tests on TV, blowing up Pacific islands and other shit, Duck and Cover seemed really stupid. The other one that I remember was a white sheet would help protect from the light from the nuclear blast.

          • elliesmom says:

            I think memories like this is what makes the current crop of whiners seem so “snowflakey”. A guy whistling at me as I walked past a construction site just can’t compete for PTSD space in my head with “tuck your head between your legs and kiss your ass good-bye”.

    • piper says:

      They may have remained silent while he lived there and during his unholy term in office but they sure as hell don’t want the initial building cost, the upkeep, increased traffic and the hordes descending on them. They have enough with their own home-grown terrorists. Besides what has he really done to improve the city and citizens – Absolutely Nothing as he is taker and is only concerned for his welfare and adulation.

      • DeniseVB says:

        The Obamas have the final decision, I doubt they want to go back to Chicago with NYC and Hawaii still in the running. What worries me, I think they’d like nothing more than to squat in the White House the rest of their lives …. it’s why he’s put us on the path to be more like the socialist countries with Leaders for Life. (removing my very heavy tinfoil hat now 😉 )

      • leslie says:

        My idea is to raze all those mansions where bronco and his stable “reside” and put the Library there – adjacent to the projects and the low income housing. I think the neighborhood with those wealthy neighbors would think more than twice about having the library and whatever there.
        Just keeping it real for the “folks” who want to see the buildings there.

      Does he continue to get his pension if he is convicted of defaming the POS (trumped up charges of course and goes to jail?

      • Somebody says:

        There is a process where the pension could be stripped, but once someone is retired that becomes much more difficult. It’s much easier to find cause to fire someone while they’re still working and strip them of their pension that way. That’s why most federal employees, the rank and file types, keep their mouths shut and their heads low. Whistle blower protection from the government is a joke, so most employees will retire before they blow any whistles.

      I’m not an expert on religions but will assume that “Allahuakbar” is not the equivalent of “Our Father who art in Heaven…..” ?

      • Somebody says:

        I’m no expert either, but I believe translated it means God is good. I don’t know that I’d read much into the fact that the pilot said that at this point. I think the black box reading on the instruments and what happened mechanically those last few minutes will be far more instructive as to the cause of the crash. The investigators will be able to tell if the crash was intentional or not. If the crash is determined to be intentional then of course uttering Allahuakbar will be relevant as to motive.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Right Scoop just updated their link. They were sourcing Yahoo who seemed to get it wrong, or out of context or something. Also, Yahoo was translating a report from some foreign website? A few words left out of context sure made all the difference.

          RS is usually better than this.

    is it just me or has anyone noticed how in all totalitarian governments, free speech is one to the first things to go? the Nazis, the Communists, Islamic governments all attack free speech and outlaw words and pictures. One of the greatest things about this country is that we can pretty much say what we want. Other people do not have to agree or like what we say but they are free to say their words too.
    Backtrack and bunch seem to want to change that. We can not let that happen here.

    The failure of Obama or Biden to show up in Paris made clear that most of the president’s team can’t be trusted to conduct U.S national security policy and must be replaced—at once.
    Here’s why America’s failure to be represented at the Paris unity march was so profoundly disturbing. It wasn’t just because President Obama’s or Vice President Biden’s absence was a horrendous gaffe. More than this, it demonstrated beyond argument that the Obama team lacks the basic instincts and judgment necessary to conduct U.S. national security policy in the next two years. It’s simply too dangerous to let Mr. Obama continue as is—with his current team and his way of making decisions. America, its allies, and friends could be heading into one of the most dangerous periods since the height of the Cold War.
    It was an absolute no-brainer for either Mr. Obama or Mr. Biden personally to show the American flag on the streets of Paris. Of course every senior staff person should have recommended it three seconds after the news of the Parisian horrors. So far as we know, none did. Sure, this was an inexplicable and utter staff failure, but the president and the vice president shouldn’t have required anyone to tell them what to do in this situation. It was, after all, about terrorism, the main issue of the era. If all these top officials blew this obvious decision, shudder at how they’ll handle the hard ones.

    Congressman apologizes for Hitler tweet . . . Wrote that even Hitler made it to Paris. Politico

    • piper says:

      ““Even Adolph [sic] Hitler thought it more important than Obama to get to Paris. (For all the wrong reasons.) Obama couldn’t do it for right reasons,” Weber tweeted on Monday.
      But on Tuesday, Weber apologized for the remark.
      “I need to first apologize to all those offended by my tweet,” Weber said. “It was not my intention to trivialize the Holocaust nor to compare the president to Adolf Hitler. The mention of Hitler was meant to represent the face of evil that still exists in the world today.”
      Weber has been an outspoken critic of “Emperor Obama” on his official Twitter account, but had never gone as far to compare the president to the late German dictator.
      But Weber still insisted in his statement that Obama should have traveled to France for the anti-terrorism rally.
      “The president’s actions or lack therefor is my point of contention,” Weber said.”

      I’m still in shock Romney didn’t beat Obama in 2012, a potted plant could have beat Obama in 2012.

      This cartoon was up on a vile progs website earlier, it had *2016* and I laughed and I laughed..Ms.Hillary’s about Mitt’s age, no? Yo, both 1947.

      I just don’t get this ageist thing.

      • piper says:

        I had high hopes that Mitt would be able to win, he was ahead in the polls or maybe that a fake thrust to fool people who then decided to stay home as they thought others would vote for him, and suddenly the election was called early in the evening for obama. In Wisconsin, the win was announced with less than 10% of votes in. Adjusting my lovely pointed fur hat (hey it’s cold here), I suspect major shenanigans in voting and voting machines. Also Mitt seemed to have withdrawn after the Candy Crowley incident which makes me wonder if some Big Boys told Mitt that it wasn’t his time.
        BTW – Sharing that I grew in Detroit and lived thru the 1967 riots when George Romney was the governor, who actually was a good man and governor.

      • piper says:

        Don’t know if the media and hollyweird influence have changed people’s perception / outlook on age – think how we Dementia addled people need viagra, statins, bars, and home health services in order to swing our legs over our bed handrails and crawl downstairs to the coffee maker. Dislike many ads especially the one ‘help I ‘ve fallen.’

        Please do not take my sarcasm as indicative of my feelings about seniors as I’m one who is still very active, healthy and take only one supplement, fish oil. There is nothing wrong if someone requires meds, equipment or services to live. But to many people believe in the so-called narrative of being hip, flashy, cool, and in the ‘in’ crowd.
