One of the purposes of the speech last night was to separate ISIS from Islam, and he did it right off the bat near the top.Remember that one time when Obama compassionately addressed the nation about an Islamo-Nazi attack on American civilians without feeling the need to defend Islam? Yeah, me neither...
TRS: Obama convened a national address tonight because apparently someone shoved some newspapers in his face on Friday to tell him to get off his ass and talk about the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11. And of course he spent all that time defending Islam, because the first priority of this administration, just like his Attorney General revealed, is to defend Islam.

While many, including Rush, explain how Sunday night's speech was nothing new on addressing terrorism, but rather a non-strategy designed to fail...
"The fact that there was nothing new in the speech last night (except that it was from the podium), the fact that there was no new strategy, the fact that there was… I mean, Obama spent more time last night talking about anti-Muslim bigotry than he did criticizing terrorism. Look, Folks, I’m sorry to tell you, but the whole… This is Obamacare — and Fast and Furious — tried again.
These attacks, such as San Bernardino — and all attacks in the future — are going to be used by this administration to somehow enact even greater gun control measures.Related links: RUSH: An Automatic Weapon Is NOT A Machine Gun
That’s what this is all about. That’s why there’s not much to say about this speech last night. The speech is not designed to rally you against ISIS."
Why Leftists Separate ISIS from Islam
...I'm rather keen on retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters' desire not to mince words...
“Look, Mr. President, we’re not afraid! We’re angry! We’re pissed off! We’re furious! We want you to react. We want you to do something. You’re afraid! I mean, this guy is such a total pussy, it’s stunning! We, the American people, who he does not know in any intimate sort of manner, we want action. We want action against Islamic State.”
(Note to Stuart Varney: If you didn't REALLY want to know, you shouldn't have asked!)
...as well as the wise words of Mark Levin, "WE DON’T NEED YOUR DAMN LECTURES!"
TRS: On Mark Levin’s radio show tonight he responded to a clip of Obama lecturing Americans on how we should reject discrimination and not be bigoted toward Muslims and such after the recent San Bernardino terrorist attack…and Levin was livid.Related links: FBI Stats Debunk DC Media’s ‘Muslim Backlash’ Myth
"How dare you talk to us this way Barack Obama! Don’t you know we’re the greatest people on the face of the earth?! That’s why all the world’s people try and come to this country. Don’t you know that we go anywhere to fight for liberty and security, one hell hole to the other, defending people who shoot us in the back?! We don’t need your damn lectures! There’s something seriously wrong with you! You don’t speak down to us this way!"
On Monday’s Mark Levin Show, Truman used to say “the buck stops here” but not with President Obama. Obama is a fraud when it comes to defending America from the ISIS terrorist threat. There will be more attacks because Obama and Democrats refuse to acknowledge the terrorist and radical Islamic threat. Gun control, no fly lists, the NSA metadata collection is all nonsense. None of this would have stopped San Bernardino terrorists despite the leftist claim that they are effective measures against would be terrorists. They refuse to take some crucial steps that would limit the carnage, including lawful profiling, border security and strict immigration limits. Also, Obama is using Islamic and CAIR propaganda to say that Muslims will be victims of antimuslim hate. However, recent statistics show that America has a bigger problem with anti-Semitism than hatred of Muslims. Instead, the President should address hatred of Jews and should look at Muslim countries to find hate crimes against Muslims as they have a greater number.
From Obama to Rubio to media, we debate nonsense…
In the predominantly Muslim nations surveyed, views of Jews are largely unfavorable
LISTEN: Levin Rips Obama’s Shameful Speech on Terror
So it took this president the entire weekend to admit to the charge of terrorism in the San Bernardino massacre, only because that terminology would finally provide an opportunity to devise a separation between fundamentalist Islam and this spontaneous jihad, tolerance for policy.
His sympathies with a religiously dressed-up ideology won't allow him to marry the two, because supposedly Islam is Peace or something...
Make no mistake: The tolerance message was why Obama really wanted to deliver this speech.Oh, and what about Obama's insistence on calling them "ISIL" unlike everyone else who says ISIS? Well, he just says that to further insult Israel...
"ISIS stands for the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, or Iraq and Syria, that’s the I-S, and ISIL, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant includes more than Iraq and Syria. It would include Israel, which, to these people, Israel is a fraud. Israel doesn’t deserve to be there. That’s all Palestine and that’s what I think is behind the pronunciation, this insistence that it be called ISIL. He’s the only one that does it. I mean, others in the Regime do. Even the media calls it ISIS, but he sticks with ISIL.
I think he’s got a different audience for the term. I don’t think he’s talking to the American people. I think he’s talking to Iran. We just heard Walid Phares say that Obama’s linkage here is not to oppose ISIL because Iran supports ISIL, and it’s all to do with the sectarian violence between the Sunnis and the Shi’ites and the fact that Iran capitalizes on the sectarian violence, does not want it solved because they hope to end up controlling the entire Levant — uh, sorry — region. Didn’t mean to say that."
One might ask: how many people will the Muslims have to shoot before the Left realizes that the Muslim doctrines telling them God wants them to shoot people is the source of the problem, and not the lack of a government-enforced static global climate system? How long until they wake up? . . .
How long until the Left wake up? The answer is: NEVER.
The Left will never wake up to reality for precisely the reason that Leftism is a mental system of excuses and psychological tricks and traps meant to allow the Leftist to escape from reality.
That is what all their rigmarole, jabberwocky, lies and evasions, all their complex obfuscations, and penning endless tomes of endless nonsense from Marx to Keynes to Al Gore, all their riots, marches, protests, sit-ins, think-tanks, media moguls, money laundering, awards shows, convulsions, antics, stunts, clamor, libel, slander, and cacophony is for: Reality avoidance.
That is all that it is for.
