In an interview with VOX, a far-left publication, President Obama pointed his finger at the media saying they are exaggerating the danger ISIS poses to Americans.
The Editor of VOX, Ezra Klein, asked Obama if he believes the media “sometimes overstates the level of alarm people should have about terrorism as apposed to climate change.”
The president’s response was, “Absolutely!”
Obama is of the belief that because ISIS is a “sexier story,” the media focuses on it and said, “If it bleeds, it leads.”
It is very interesting that Obama chose VOX to give his extensive interview. VOX, “just last Saturday was claiming that those who took issue with Obama’s reprehensible moral equivalence regarding the Crusades were just looking for an excuse to hate Muslims,” reports Jihad Watch. “That is the milieu from which Obama comes, and in which he is most comfortable. That is, almost certainly, his world view as well: that those who believe that Islam uniquely teaches and justifies violence in a way that Christianity and other religions do not are motivated solely by hatred of Muslims. This is the line that Hamas-linked CAIR and its henchmen have promoted for years. In the White House today, they have their most powerful champion ever.”
So, while the White House seems to be pumping up their Global Warming campaign, they are downplaying the fear-factor ISIS instills on Americans by blaming the media for it’s alleged hyped up reporting.
But, why then, did Obama also say “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris?” Obama went on to say that “We devote enormous resources to that, and it is right and appropriate for us to be vigilant and aggressive in trying to deal with that – the same way a big city mayor’s got to cut the crime rate down if he wants that city to thrive.”
Obama also submitted that the ‘targeted’ murder of Jews at a kosher supermarket last month was simply a ‘random shooting.’
Choosing ‘violent extremism’ to describe the terrorists who behead anyone who will not conform to their religious belief system, Obama refuses to call the group threatening our nation by their name, the Islamic State.
Obama, showing just how out of touch he is, points his finger at our media saying it is they who are to blame for the ISIS fear instilled in American citizens and insinuating that global warming is a better place to focus our worries and attentions.
