When Dylann Roof shot-up a predominantly black church in South Carolina, the liberal media furthered a narrative which was largely a fabrication meant to explain Roof’s motives.
The left went on a cultural jihad, blaming the Confederate flag and all things remotely Southern. This anti-Southern sentiment continues today.
When a self-professed Islamic adherent shot-up a homosexual nightclub and explicitly stated that he was doing so due to his Islamic beliefs, the left shrugged and has been working to make the Orlando terrorist attack about anything other than Islam.
They have flailed and blamed guns, homophobia, and really anything other than Islam.
Despite all realities, they are committed to furthering a narrative and in doing so, placing more people in harm’s way as they ignore the dangers posed by radical Islam.
One such denier of basic reality is Laila Alawa, an activist and member of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Security Council.
Recently, Alawa retweeted an article authored by Saffiya Mohammed, an associate of Alawa and the “Community Editor” at TheTempest.co, a website created by Alawa.
The site bills itself as a “media and tech company created and run by diverse millennial women, for the world.”
The article authored by Mohammed and disseminated by Alawa is titled, “There’s Nothing Islamic About the Mass Shooting in Orlando.”
Predictably, the article highlights a supposed need for increased anti-Second Amendment efforts and mental health reforms.
The article claims that there is nothing Islamic about the terrorist attack and that Islam is a peaceful religion and yada, yada, yada.
It’s nothing that hasn’t been said before.
However, while there are many, many peaceful Muslims in the world, Islam, itself, is a religion that promotes violence as a means of silencing dissent. Not all who face Mecca engage in this violence, but it’s time for this “Islam is a religion of peace” myth to finally die once and for all.
Further, whatever the varying interpretations of the Koran, the fact is that there is a sizeable portion of this world that views it as acceptable to kill in the name of Allah. Whether this interpretation is correct or not matters not to the person looking down the barrel of a gun.
Islam is motivating a sizeable portion of the world to kill other sizeable portions of the world and the “moderate” Muslims not slinging a rifle in the name of their “religion of peace” appear largely infinitely more-concerned with their reputations than in disciplining their own communities and helping to stop bloodshed in the name of Allah.
Further, that this warped perspective could be supported by an adviser to the DHS is not only shocking, but downright dangerous.
It is long past time to take radical Islam seriously and every second wasted on attempting to thwart the message from Orlando is a second not being used to combat those who mean the Western world harm.
