John Boehner uses the 'J word'!

Increasingly, it is forbidden to say the words “Islam” and “extreme” or “Islam” and “terror” in the same sentence. Because, we are told, Islamic terrorists have nothing to do with Islam.

Whatever.

In truth, the word that most accurately describes who these terrorists are is “jihadists.” That is the word that should be used. But if it’s harder and harder for people to say “Islamic terrorism,” it’s nearly impossible for the “J word” to be uttered. Heaven forbid anyone get too close to the truth.

And so it was shocking when John Boehner, of all people, said the word:

…There is a serious threat that exists in the world and the president last [Tuesday] night kind of papered over it. And the fact is that there needs to be a more serious conversation in America about how serious the threat is from radical Islamic jihadists and the threat posed by Iran….

Boehner’s statement was right on the mark. Let’s hope more elected officials start adding the “J” word to their lexicon.
