Obama refuses to fight hatred with hatred

Can you believe this guy?  Republicans surely can’t.  Here we are, being attacked by extremists who hate us all without reason and want to kill everyone in specific groups, and Obama absolutely refuses to reciprocate by doing the exact same thing back to them!  cmimg_22296

I mean, it’s almost as if he doesn’t want to be revealed as a war-mongering hypocrite or something.

Just look at the things he has said:

They are not religious leaders, they’re terrorists. And we are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam…

The terrorists do not speak for over a billion Muslims who reject their hateful ideology. They no more represent Islam than any mad man who kills innocents in the name of God represents Christianity or Judaism or Buddhism or Hinduism. No religion is responsible for terrorism, people are responsible for violence and terrorism.

Then he calls out Muslims who do not strongly fight against these extremists.

Muslim leaders need to do more to discredit the notion that our nations are determined to suppress Islam—that there is an inherent clash of civilizations. Everybody has to speak up very clearly that, no matter what the grievance, violence against innocents doesn’t defend Islam or Muslims, it damages Islam and Muslims.

So you can see why conservatives are up in arms over outrageous statements like this!

You can see, can’t you?

Then could you please explain it to me?

  1. Oh, and here’s one more outrageous quote:

    “The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That’s not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorists don’t represent peace. They represent evil and war.”

    Oh wait, my bad. That’s a quote from George W. Bush.

  2. Well, just going out on a limb here … the idea that very visible elements of Islam do not speak for all of Islam might be related to the idea that very visible (conservative) political views in America do not necessarily represent what the majority of Americans really think. If they have to acknowledge the one, they might need to take a good hard look at the other, and introspection can be difficult.
