Did anyone say ISIS?
My guess is that Mrs. Clinton knows that she's going to disappoint much of her party if she wins. In other words, the next president will have to fight the war against terrorists with a lot more energy and aggresiveness than President Obama did. Incredibly, President Obama has been allowed to kick the can forward and leave all of this to his successor.
The Democrat convention is all about turning Trump into a racist and sexist monster. Unfortunately, the real monster who just killed a priest in France was overlooked
Some delegates are defending the lack of ISIS saying that there is a theme nightly and terror was not on Monday's agenda, as Tyler Pager explained:
“Based on our searches of C-SPAN closed-captioning text, Congressional Quarterly transcripts and other video archiving services, we couldn’t find any speaker who mentioned "ISIS," "Islamic" "terror," "terrorist," or "terrorism" during the first day of the convention,” Politifact wrote.
The fact-checking website did add the caveat that the Democrats still have three days to discuss terrorism at the convention and the first day of the convention was not meant to focus on foreign policy.
Additionally, Hillary Clinton on Monday called for action against ISIL at a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“We need to lead other countries in stopping ISIS, Al Qaeda, and other radical jihadist groups,” she said. "We shouldn’t leave that to the rest of the world to figure out on their own. That won’t keep us safe."
Frankly, I don't buy this nonsense about scheduling. I think that Democrats have concluded that their delegates would rather hear about free tutition than the threat of ISIS.
Let me say it again. Democrats are going to be very disappointed when # 45 has to go after ISIS, and that means ground troops. Mrs. Clinton has to know that and her anti-war pandering to the left is reckless and irresponsible.
The Democratic Party is in a state of denial. They should read today's Telegraph editorial about Germany:
Western democracies are now frequently experiencing political events that were previously considered unthinkable, at least by their political elites.
If there is a common theme to Brexit, the candidacy of Donald Trump and the rise of the Front National in France, it is that political establishments which ignore and ridicule voters’ concerns about issues including immigration and cultural cohesion are simply storing up trouble for the future.
Such concerns do not go away just because politicians refuse to acknowledge them, instead erupting unpredictably.
To avoid these eruptions, those worries must be addressed sensibly and calmly by mainstream politicians..
And the threat of ISIS is not going away either because we engage in silly arguments about motives or whether the killer was or was not radicalized.
