France Declared They Are At War With Radical Islam : Eric Holder Has An Issue With That.
France has had no issue in openly declaring that they are at war with radical Islam. French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said, "It is a war against terrorism and radical Islam, against everything aimed at breaking solidarity, liberty and fraternity."
When Eric Holder made his weekend rounds following the terrorist attacks in Paris, he went on Meet the Press with Chuck Todd. Todd asked Eric Holder, "The French Prime Minister declared that France is at war with radical Islam. Would you say the United States is at war with radical Islam?"
In a weak response Holder said, "I would say that we are at war with terrorists who commit these heinous acts and who use Islam, they use a corrupted version of Islam, to justify their actions. We are bound and determined to hold them accountable, to find them wherever they are." Holder refused to admit that the enemy is radical Islam, instead making poor excuses for the who the enemy is by saying it's a "corrupted version of Islam." Riiiggghhhttt, does ISIS knows that they're not Islamic, Mr. Holder?
Holder messed up on Meet the Press and couldn't admit who the enemy was, but he still had a chance to make it right when he went on Week with George Stephanopolous. Except, he didn't do that.
When Stephanopolous asked Holder if America was at war with radical Islam, like the French, he responded, "Well, I certainly think that we are at war with those who would commit terrorist attacks and who would corrupt the Islamic faith in the way that they do to try to justify their terrorist actions. So that’s who we are at war with, and we are determined to take the fight to them to prevent them from engaging these kinds of activities."
When will the White House learn that political correctness isn't making the United States look strong? It looks like we're afraid to look our enemies in the face and say, "You've attacked us, you've attacked our allies, and now we're coming after you."
