Obama Refused to say ‘Islamic terrorists’, and now Apparently, Neither will Trump’s Security Advisers

in Donald Trump/Islam/Trump nominees by

During Obama’s entire two terms, republicans got a kick out of trying to force Obama to say ‘Islamic terrorists’. Even Donald Trump, to display his brash defiance, would scream it loud at rallies and on mountaintops. According to The Donald, Obama was too weak to say those two words, but I’ll do it. As it turns out, most people will not say those two words. Trump’s new national security adviser Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster, is one person who will not.

Republicans will do anything to make that crowd of tank-top wearing, alt-right supporting republicans cheer. Albeit, the same admiration a class of fifth graders may give to the brave student who starts talking shit to the teacher. They tried so hard to get Obama to say ‘Islamic terrorists’ and why? What would it have done?

Trump’s national security adviser will be Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster. He is replacing Michael Flynn, Trump’s first choice, after he was forced to resign because of allegedly lying to Mike Pence. nbc26 article

On Thursday, McMaster gave his first staff meeting, where he said labels like “radical Islamic terrorism” are not helpful because he said terrorists are “un-Islamic.” NY Post article

Hold on.

Does that not defy all of Trump’s ‘Islamic crackdown’ ideas?

With his national security adviser believing that terrorists are the opposite of Islams, how will Trump conduct his campaign promise to kick out Islamic people from the country because of their ties to terrorism.

Maybe Trump does not even believe this. Maybe this Islamic ban is nothing more than a bone he threw to his supporters.

Trump’s list of countries banned from entering America, are just poor countries with heavy Islamic populations. Hence, Trump’s security adviser obviously does not agree with Trump’s security measures. It’ll be interesting to see what role McMaster plays in this.

Had Trump not made Islam bashing a cornerstone of his campaign, it is questionable if he would be in the White House. His racist and ugly ideology certainly inspired many people to register to vote. The ironic part though, is that ‘Islamic terrorists’ simply are not a coherent label.

Five years ago, there were 2.2 billion Christians in the world making it ‘by far’ the world’s largest religion. Islam is the second most common religion with 1.6 billion out of a global population of 6.9 billion. By 2070, it is estimated that there will be more people of the Islamic faith than of the Christian faith, DailyMail article.

That was why Obama would never say ‘Islamic terrorists’. To erroneously label the second biggest religion in the world as killers, is a foolish thing to do. President of the United States should know better. Trump, and his legions of toothless uneducated supporters are the only ones under this spiteful impression.

At least everyone else in our government disagrees with The Donald.

Jordan has always been a writer. He has written several novels available on Amazon.com, and he used to write his own column in "The National Enquirer". While Jordan lived in Japan for two years, he was a childhood television star. He was sort of a big deal. In a volunteer position, Jordan teaches adults how to read.


  1. While SOME of trump’s “company” may be disagreeing with him, they are doing so only in the most negligent and inconsequential of manners.

    And let’s get this straight once and for all. Flynn was not asked to resign for lying to pence (pence already knew ages ago about the Russian contacts and connections, HONESTLY)…he was asked to resign because it was so flagrantly FOUND OUT!

  2. Good, apparently nobody here understands the first thing about the strategic game being played here.

    The message that we want to be out there isn’t that our enemy is ‘radical Islam terrorism’, because what we want is to project the idea that terrorism is ‘un-Islamic’, that anybody engaged in these actions are committed sacrilegious acts against the faith the claim to hold. We can’t forget the number one victim of “radical Islam terrorism” is Muslims. Vastly most Muslims are being killed and displaced by terrorists that white/Christian/westerns. And the number one force in the world combating “radical Islamic terrorists” are Muslims.
    In the civil war in Syria for example, you have a 4 sided war; the Syrian government, Isis, various rebel groups, and the Kurds, and guess what? All four sides are made up predominantly of Muslims.

    The more ‘hearts and minds’ that can be won over, the more effective the battle against the bad guys are going to be, and the safer we are going to be as a result. But part of that is about trying to empower moderates and reformist voices in the Muslim world and trying to separate out and clearly demarcate the bad guys from the majority Muslim population. Most Muslim scholars in the world will tell you that Isis is a grave perversion of Islam, and that’s what you want to hear, that’s what you want broadcasted everywhere you can.

    By using the “radical Islamic terrorist” designation you are explicitly drawing the connect to Islam, and saying this is a legitimate face of what Islam looks like, and in doing so you lose the clear boundary between are friends and our enemies in this battle.

  3. Words could be incendiary & should be used judiciously. Obama was never flippant with words and was very measured in whatever he said. Trump has thrown caution to the winds & feels he has the right to castigate whomever he feels fit! Very rarely has Trump shown discretion. This term ‘Islamic terrorists’ should be looked into in greater detail
