This argument is so stupid that it really ought to come with its own frontal lobotomy. But that doesn't stop assorted Muslim Brotherhood front groups and their lefty useful idiots from making it anyway.
"With this, Scott Walker is actually enabling ISIS by characterizing their acts as being Islamic terrorism," said Robert McCaw, government affairs manager for the Council on American-Islamic Relations. "He is taking a peaceful religion of 1.6 billion people and misappropriating it to ISIS, allowing them to wrap themselves in the religion's name and stake a claim to it."
McCaw was referring to Walker's first foreign policy address as a presidential candidate, delivered on Friday at The Citadel military college in South Carolina, during which he referenced Islamic extremists or radical Islamic terrorism 11 times.
What exactly should he be calling the Islamic State?
Let's set aside the stupid premise of the CAIR argument that the Muslim world is sitting around waiting to decide whether ISIS is Islamic based on what the governor of Wisconsin says. (I'm pretty sure it isn't.)
ISIS is an Islamic terrorist group in the most literal sense possible. It engages in acts of terror in order to impose Islam on others and fulfill Islamic goals. It defines itself as an Islamic organization in both nature and mission.
We can pretend, like John Kerry, that it's un-Islamic, but based on what exactly? ISIS is probably more faithful to the Koran than most Muslim groups out there. And is it really the role of the US government to decide what real Islam is and isn't? What exactly happened to the left's hallowed dedication to separation of church and state? Or does that not apply? Is there to be no separation of mosque and state?
And isn't that kind of ISIS-like?
Walker didn't decide to call ISIS the Islamic State. Its leaders did. And it's in keeping with the commonplace placement of Islam in the name of Islamic terror groups. Shooting the messenger doesn't change the message. The Islamic State is Islam. If McCaw wants to change that, he can take his case to an Islamic theocracy which is qualified to decide the issue.
The United States isn't one of those. Yet.
Trump needs to declare CAIR a terrorist organization and have them taken out with extreme prejudice.
Brilliant Islamic PsyOps.
The left has honed their speech police ways. When they have no argument to support their lunatic views, they try to tag the opposition’s argument as offensive or abusive or in any way too harmful to be voiced.
Pack of cheaters and liars.
I think ISIS was “enabled” and assisted by Obama’s government
CAIR enables muslim terrorists by shilling for Islamic imperialism and denying the sky is blue.
CAIR is a Jihadi operation. It should be disbanded and all its members hanged for treason.
There is no justification for what terrorists do.
Thus Scott Walker could not have enabled them.
CAIR is a subversive front organization for Islamic Extremist Terrorists.
The federal government should shut it down.
War is peace. Debt is an asset. Nationalism is racism. A world only a globalist could love.
Cair attacks Scott Walker. (Know a man by his enemies.)
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Yes but only because the intelligence of the average American is now below that of the average muslim terrorist.
Mike Judge was a prophet.
Some candidates talk about terrorism while being supported by a liberal culture that aids terrorism for revenues, trade, etc. Scott Walker would do something about terrorism.
You’re right because Walker’s a work horse not a show horse.
Only idiots even remotely continue to believe this lie.
Actually it’s the Koran and the example of the war criminal Mohammed that enables ISIS.
CAIR Claims Scott Walker “Enables” ISIS by Calling Them Muslim Terrorists
You enable muslim terrorists (ISIS) by calling them muslim terrorist?
This clam made by a muslim terrorist support group........
This world gets more insane every day
He is taking a peaceful religion of 1.6 billion people and
Islam is not a peaceful religion. There are wars happening all over this planet this minute with Islam being the dominating factor. Islam is a Death Cult...
For the umpteenth time - - -
What is meant by ‘Islam is the religion of peace’ means when all the world becomes Islamic, there will then be peace - - -
Intelligence? Perhaps you meant common sense. Stats otherwise.
