Why Obama will not identify terrorists as Sharia jihadists
President Obama's apparent inability to utter the words "Islamic" and "terrorist" in the same breath has been a growing mystery. Time and again, acts of terror committed by Muslims have been labeled "workplace violence" or "hate crimes" or anything else but what they really are: Islamic jihadist terrorism. Looking back over the history of Islamic jihadist terrorism during the past seven and one-half years of Obama's administration, a pattern emerges that suggests why Obama's responses have been so out of sync with reality.

While digesting the “news” this morning, I was hit with a bolt of clarity that helped me understand exactly what it is that motivates Obama’s unwillingness to identify Sharia jihadist terrorism as the common thread in domestic acts of terrorism by Muslims.
It is the same thing that allows him to mischaracterize Americans (notoriously, Donald Trump) as people who are anti-Muslim/anti-Islamist, just because they want to protect our nation from Sharia jihadists who will not rest until they’ve slaughtered or subjugated everyone who is not devoted to strict Sharia law.
Obama, raised and tutored by a notorious communist to be a good Leftist radical and devout disciple of Saul Alinsky, calculates everything he does in terms of how it will advance his Leftist agenda to "fundamentally transform America".
Obama's design to destroy middle-class America while dividing the population by pitting Black against White, Hispanic against non-Hispanic, Female against Male, Rich against Poor, and on and on. This disunity is necessary to tear our country apart and prevent a unified resistance to his Leftist agenda.
To succeed with his designs Obama needs (1) the power to declare Martial Law, (2) a sufficiently disarmed populace, and (3) sufficient civil unrest/terrorist activities that a majority of the populace will either welcome his actions or at least be reluctant to oppose them.
Obama has already been given (1) and (3) is building steadily with each act of terrorism. All Obama needs to complete his transformation of America is the tough one, a sufficiently disarmed populace.
What better diversion from the real cause of domestic terrorism than to blame domestic terrorism on the NRA, 2nd Amendment supporters, and the presumptive nominee of the GOP, Donald Trump?
The “usual suspects” and national news media who support the Democratic Party have already demonized Republicans, Conservatives, Tea Partiers, and 2nd Amendment advocates as the evil ones.
Picking his targets wisely, Obama always takes aim our constitutional right to "keep and bear arms". Obama's primary objective is to effectively disarm Americans.
Obama's edicts carried down through every department of federal government have diminished our ability to defend against acts of domestic terror. Federal officials and employees are strongly discouraged from uttering anything that might offend people of the Muslim faith.
This is by design. The real intent is to create more of these incidents that can then be used against the 2nd Amendment right to “keep and bear arms”.
This is the real reason Obama cannot admit that acts of terrorism are being committed in the name of Sharia jihad by Muslim men dedicated to this extreme Islamist theocratic law.
According to Obama, the culprit cannot be the perpetrators because that won't advance his Leftist agenda.
Instead, the true culprits must be claimed to be “hate” and those who spread it (according to Obama, Republicans and Conservatives in general and, in particular, Donald Trump), “violence” and those who foment it (White people, in particular Donald Trump), and, most important, “guns” (NRA members and other 2nd Amendment supporters, in particular Donald Trump).
That equation fits perfectly in Obama’s world. Every act of evil must be traced back to a religious White Republican/Conservative/NRA-2nd Amendment supporting gun owner. The people must be convinced that to solve the problems of violence, hatred, and terrorism, we need only “severely limit” (i.e., take away) gun ownership.
This understanding precisely explains Obama’s actions and why he is so incensed that Trump is exposing his inability to clearly identify the real danger.
Bob Webster, a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
