White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the administration doesn’t want to legitimize those terrorists or the “warped” view of Islam they hold. Also, Mr. Earnest said, the phrase “radical Islam” simply is not an accurate way to describe the enemies of the U.S., France and other nations across the globe.



Hey everyone stop calling it 'Radical Islam'.

And the quote of the day comes from the blow back section:



I’m willing to consider giving up the very realistic term “Radical Islam” if the Left gives up on the myths of -

War on women
White Privilege
Rape Culture
Institutional Racism
Bush’s fault
Israel’s fault
(feel free to add to the list)

Added :

Gun Violence




And yet 'radical Islam' is the justification for the Patriot Act, NSA,TSA, and why people can't carry shampoo on planes, and other nonsense.

They want to redefine 'terrorism' means they are paving the way to labeling everyone that does 'extreme' things.

Seems government extremist's needs to start discussing their own extreme actions.

Remember now 'Government is us, and they are doing things right!





We have got to have the brightest minds to solve our biggest challenges...


Playing word Nazi's with radical Islam seems to be the complete antithesis of 'Government is us, and were doing things right'.

When Christians blow up abortion clinics do they call it radical Christianity? It seems like Islam is the only religion that is mentioned as radical when people do violence in it's name. Other religions get left out like when Anders Breivik killed over 70 people.

I wish we could convene a meeting, or a "summit" regarding how to protect ourselves from over-paid fork tongued White-house press secretaries.

You know they wouldn't blatantly lie to us if they didn't know the vast majority of people hearing what message they spew would believe it. I used to get so mad and worked up thinking they insult our intelligence with press briefings and party lines etc...until I realized they aren't insulting THAT many peoples intelligence.

You might want to spend as much energy focusing on what they're doing as you do on what they're being called.

Just a thought.

Well, there is a point to it. Radical means resisting the status quo.
Extremist or Islamic/Christian/Jewish/whatever terrorist would be more accurate.

That's funny.

Considering when it comes to different labels like Republican,Gun owners,Bankers, and Corporations people sing a different tune.

But when it comes to Islam it's a different story.

Hell it get's better coming from one of Israels biggest critics.

So if the statist quo Democratically decided that everyone over the age of 55 needed to die, those who resisted it would be radicals?????

WOW!

Brainwashing has truly destroyed this country.......

It is not required that you have a personal relationship with God or Jesus in order to fight for our Christian cultural heritage and the European way. In many ways, our modern societies and European secularism is a result of European Christendom and the enlightenment. It is therefore essential to understand the difference between a “Christian fundamentalist theocracy” (everything we do not want) and a secular European society based on our Christian cultural heritage (what we do want). (emphasis in original)

So no, you don’t need to have a personal relationship with God or Jesus to fight for our Christian cultural heritage. It is enough that you are a Christian-agnostic or a Christian-atheist (an atheist who wants to preserve at least the basics of the European Christian cultural legacy (Christian holidays, Christmas and Easter)).4


Let's lay to rest any idea that Brevik was some fundy nut-job. This is out of his own manifesto. He is basically an anti0Islamic nut job. Actually, you could call him a true Islamophobe; whether or not his fear is ultimately born out, we have yet to see.

But he hears for his Western Secular culture.

We are not allowed any longer to separate out the "radical" component within the religion so that only leaves Islam as a whole, blame Obama, his team is pushing for it.
