TheBlaze radio host Buck Sexton went on an absolute tear last week, calling out liberals on Twitter and on television for their response to the terrorist attack in France.
Find it depressing and aggravating so many Americans would rather get angry at people who say mean things about terrorists- than terrorists
— Buck Sexton (@BuckSexton) July 14, 2016
The radical left views criticism of terrorism as more damning than the actual terrorist attacks.
Obama’s own attorney general, Loretta Lynch, responded to the ISIS-inspired attacks in San Bernardino by declaring her concern about an “incredibly disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric.”
She said the rhetoric “is my greatest fear.”
Sexton’s tweet and the left’s response in general reminded us of this cartoon produced by the great A.F. Branco a year ago.
A year later, has anything really changed about the administration’s handling of – and how they define – radical Islamic terrorism?
Sexton also took on a CNN commentator yesterday who tried arguing that terrorists aren’t ‘coming after us.’
“Yes, they are! They are, in fact, coming after us!” Sexton shot back. “When I say us, I’m referring to America, to Europe, and the West, and all peaceful Muslims, and everyone around the world who doesn’t believe that strapping a suicide vest — because you’re disaffected, because you have some belief that somehow this will take you to a place of paradise and virgins, whatever the case may be.”
He continued, “Everybody who isn’t on that team, is on my team. This notion you have in your head that when I say ‘us’ I’m referring to — what? Republican Americans?”
Concluding his comments, Sexton lamented the “knee-jerk reaction” he often sees among liberals who, in the days after a terror attack, spend their time going after the “bad rhetoric” of their conservative counterparts “who want to speak openly and honestly about terrorism.”
Check out the fireworks …
