Jeh Johnson, the head of the Dept. of Homeland Security, attended a security forum last week, where he insisted it is “critical” not to use the word “Islamic” when referring to the terrorist group ISIS.
Johnson’s agency should be renamed: “Department of Homeland Insecurity.”
….Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson refuses to call Islamic terror “Islamic,” arguing it’s “critical” to refrain from the label in order to “build trust” among Muslims.
In jaw-dropping remarks Friday at Aspen Institute’s annual security forum, Johnson said the government will call such attacks “violent extremism” over “Islamic terrorism” out of respect for the Muslim community.
The policy explains why the U.S. prosecutor and lead FBI investigator in the Chattanooga case still insist on calling Mohammad Abdulazeez a “homegrown violent extremist,” though he blogged about his religious motivations for the attack, and he and his family attended a local mosque controlled by a terror-tied Islamic trust.
Johnson says that dismissing the religious dimension of the widening homegrown Islamic terror threat is part of a strategy to gain the “cooperation” of the Muslim community. He says that if officials called Islamic terrorism “Islamic,” they’d “get nowhere.”
….Earth to Johnson: You already are “nowhere.”
….The notion that Muslim leaders are helping us is totally bogus. In one Islamic State hot spot, Minneapolis, the local Muslim leaders are “cooperating” by demanding that the FBI release jailed IS terrorist suspects. In Boston, congregants of a mosque attended by the Boston marathon bombers are “cooperating” by holding fundraisers and rallies for convicted al-Qaida- and IS-tied terrorists….
Johnson, like his boss, are delusional: Their strategy of “winning hearts and minds” already has failed. So now it’s up to state and local authorities to take this fight from the feds and put down this growing insurgency themselves. They can start by passing a law that allows authorities to press legal action not just against terrorists but also any of their supporters in the Muslim community….
Aesop had his fable, Jeh Johnson has his: The man who did not cry wolf.
No wolf. No wolf. There is not a wolf. No wolves. Where Wolves of Johnson.
Reading from the Obama talking points. The point man charged with keeping America safe can’t even bring himself to name our enemy. How hard do you suppose he allows his charges to do their jobs?
If this man is paralyzed, I think it would be his brain and not anything else. Where oh where do they find these nut-balls? The dept name should be changed to the Department of Homeland Stupidity!
