FINALLY, we have an administration that isn’t afraid to tell the truth about Islamic terrorism. The importance of this cannot be understated, and it’s especially crucial this week, where we have liberals trying to make a mountain out of a molehill with that mosque bombing in Minnesota. How many times – HOW MANY TIMES – do these supposed right-wing, anti-Islamic terrorist events turn out to be false flag attacks carried out by Islamists themselves? “Every time” would probably be inaccurate, but we’ll go as far as to say “most” of the time. And so hell yes, President Trump is remaining silent on the bombing because neither he – nor anyone in law enforcement – knows what exactly happened yet. That’s called being smart. That’s called being prudent.
And speaking of smart and prudent, we have nothing but praise for White House aide Sebastian Gorka, who went on MSNBC on Tuesday to blow a few Obama-era myths out of the water.
Asked if Trump’s military strategy against ISIS, combined with his travel ban on terrorist-haven Middle Eastern countries, would do anything to protect Americans from self-radicalized “lone wolf” threats, Gorka set off a truth bomb.
“There’s no such thing as a lone wolf,” he said. “You do know that. That was a phrase invented by the last administration to make Americans stupid. There has never been a serious attack or a serious plot that was unconnected from ISIS or al Qaeda, at least through the ideology and the TTPs – the tactics, the training, the techniques, and the procedures – that they supply through the Internet. Never happened. It’s bogus.”
Gorka said the administration’s focus would therefore be on eliminating the “central command” of these terrorist ideologies around the world.
“This is an international, global threat,” he said. “What we have to do now is not only destroy organizations like ISIS, which we are doing. They will be annihilated, but also delegitimize the ideology, so it will become as heinous and as rejected as fascism and Nazism is today. That black flag of ISIS has to be globally rejected like the Swastika, and we will work with our Muslim partners to overtly and covertly delegitimize their message. That’s the definition of victory. When people don’t want to become jihadis, that’s when we will have won.”
That was when the reporter asked Gorka about Trump’s silence on the Minneapolis mosque bombing, and once again, we re-discovered our love for this administration.
“When we have some kind of finalized investigation, absolutely, so there’s a great rule: all initial reports are false. You have to check them. You have to find out who the perpetrators are,” Gorka said. “We’ve had a series of crimes committed, alleged hate crimes by rivaling individuals in the last six months that turned out to actually be propagated by the left, so let’s wait and see. Let’s allow the local authorities to provide their assessment, and then the White House will make its comments.”
It’s a thing of beauty the way the Trump White House is utterly unafraid to challenge and reject the media’s biased narratives – a stance of power that has been absent from the Republican Party for far too long.
