After ignoring the global jihad for the whole of his presidency, his silence amounted to nothing short of support. And that support led to empowerment and jihad success in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and North America.
Now that the Jihad is raging, thanks in large part to his islamophiliac foreign policy, Obama’s solution to the bloodshed and the carnage is — don’t report it. If a tree falls in the woods and the media doesn’t cover it, then it doesn’t make a sound. Obama was elected President, but he behaves like a tinpot dictator.
This is, by the way, exactly what Islamic supremacists have been demanding for years. That media stop reporting on jihad. The media have, in large part, complied. But when Sydney, Paris, Ottawa happen — it cannot be denied.
I expect Obama to come after counter-jihad sites as well, because truth-seeking freedom lovers increasingly are going to the net for their news.
“White House: Obama Will Fight Media To Stop Anti-Jihad Articles” Neil Munro, Daily Caller, January 13, 2015:
President Barack Obama has a moral responsibility to push back on the nation’s journalism community when it is planning to publish anti-jihadi articles that might cause a jihadi attack against the nation’s defenses forces, the White House’s press secretary said Jan. 12.
“The president … will not now be shy about expressing a view or taking the steps that are necessary to try to advocate for the safety and security of our men and women in uniform” whenever journalists’ work may provoke jihadist attacks, spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at the White House’s daily briefing.
The unprecedented reversal of Americans’ civil-military relations, and of the president’s duty to protect the First Amendment, was pushed by Earnest as he tried to excuse the administration’s opposition in 2012 to the publication of anti-jihadi cartoons by the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
The White House voiced its objections in 2012 after the magazine’s office were burned by jihadis, followings its publication of anti-jihadi cartoons.
Earnest’s defense of the 2012 objections came just five days after the magazine’s office was attacked by additional jihadis. Eight journalists, two policeman and a visitor were murdered by two French-born Muslims who objected to the magazine’s criticism of Islam’s final prophet.
(Editor’s Note: In addition to pointing out what the White House is set to do, in violation of free speech, Geller’s organization is bringing the fight to the Islamists in Garland, Texas in the form of a free speech rally outside and Islamic event. Here’s the information:
Islamic supremacists and terror-tied imams from across America will gather in Texas this weekend to hold the annual Stand With the Prophet in Honor and Respect conference, a weekend forum that is being billed as a “movement to defend Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message,” according to event information.
The Stand With the Prophet in Honor and Respect conference declares that it is trying to start a “movement to defend Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message.” This theme is strikingly similar to the motive of the Charlie Hebdo jihad killers: after they had murdered twelve people in the Charlie Hebdo offices, one of the gunmen shouted, “We have avenged the Prophet Muhammad.”
This kind of hate-filled rhetoric fuels the violence and murder of freedom loving people.
We will protest this supremacism and stand in defense of free speech.
This Saturday, January 17 at 3:00pm in CST, 4999 Naaman Forest Blvd., Garland, TX 75040
Bring lots of American flags and free speech signs.)
