The repercussions of the Obama administration’s refusal to focus on radical Islam as the primary motivation for the Orlando massacre appear to be growing — just like the cancer that is radical Islam itself. Of course, many of us have been dismayed and disturbed, to say the least, at Obama and his team’s refusal to recognize and name the enemy as radical Islam, which has absolutely hamstrung and continues to hamstring our ability to fight it — and leaves us as Americans as sitting ducks to future attacks right here in our homeland.
And now, a new and perhaps unexpected repercussion of obfuscating Orlando shooter Omar Mateen’s radical Islam motivation — despite his attending a radical mosque, pledging allegiance to ISIS multiple times before and during the attack and being raised by a Taliban sympathizing father.
Islamic terrorists have been calling for lone wolf attacks for some time now, as the next phase of their jihad against the West. In the wake of Orlando now, however, they’re getting a bit more specific and calling for future attacks to target white Americans. Why white Americans? For the express purpose of making absolute clear that the motive is radical Islam — not to be confused with a garden-variety “hate crime” as the Orlando massacre has been.
As Fox News reports:
Lone wolf jihadists should target white Americans so no one mistakes their terror attacks for hate crimes unrelated to the cause of radical Islam, Al Qaeda writes in the latest edition of its online magazine.
In an article first reported by The Foreign Desk, Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) called for more self-directed Muslim terrorists to kill in America. But the article, titled “Inspire guide: Orlando operation,” tells terrorists to “avoid targeting places and crowds where minorities are generally found” because if gays or Latinos appear to be the targets, “the federal government will be the one taking full responsibility.”
In the June 12 attack in Orlando, Omar Mateen killed 49 people and injured 53 inside a gay nightclub. Although Mateen, who was later killed by police, told hostage negotiators he pledged allegiance to ISIS, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has characterized the attack as a hate crime against gays.
“I cannot tell you definitively that we will ever narrow it down to one motivation,” Lynch told reporters last week. “People often act out of more than one motivation.
“This was clearly an act of terror and an act of hate,” she continued. “We will look at all motivations and hope to come to a conclusion there.”
Yeah, so while our crack Attorney General is still fumbling around for the motive — and calling for “love” as a weapon against the terrorists, white Americans are increasingly targets.
And, sadly, we can thank the Obama administration not just for failing to recognize radical Islam as a clear and present threat to all Americans, but also for fomenting a racial division this country hasn’t seen since before the civil rights movement. It is an environment where hate against whites is less likely to be prosecuted (if at all), and is even condoned by the federal government — the Black Lives Matter movement and some of its antics are just one main example.
And now, it seems, this racial environment cultivated by Obama and his minions extends to make white Americans more prime targets of terror — all at a time where it seeks to take away our ability to defend ourselves via the Second Amendment.
