State Department: We Always Are Clear About Terrorism and We Were Always Clear That the Hyper Casher Attacks Were Terrorist Attacks on Jews

These are not "mistakes" or slips of the tongue; this is what Obama really believes. He really believes that Westerners and Whities deserve to take a little bit of death at the hands of third-world freedom fighters, so we should shut up about it when it happens, and just accept we had some of this coming.

He is not president to fight terrorists; he is president to pretend to be against gay marriage before blessing it and to redistribute income.

He said as much in his interview with the Vox Brain Trust.

When subjected to a line of leading questioning from Vox’s Matthew Yglesias as to whether or not the press “overstates the level of alarm people should have” about terrorism and understates it when it comes to issues like “climate change and epidemic disease” (Ebola, presumably, not included), Obama agreed that the media “absolutely” embellishes the threat posed by Islamist terrorism.

“What’s the famous saying about local newscasts, right? If it bleeds, it leads, right?” Obama said. The insinuation here is that the media’s focus on the war on international terrorism precipitated by the September 11th attacks is just ratings-grabbing sensationalism. After insinuating that, Obama went ahead and said it outright.

“You show crime stories and you show fires, because that’s what folks watch, and it’s all about ratings,” the president insisted. “And, you know, the problems of terrorism and dysfunction and chaos, along with plane crashes and a few other things, that’s the equivalent when it comes to covering international affairs.”

Obama insisted that airplane disasters and bloody acts of Islamist terrorism in places like Paris, Ottawa, New York City, Peshawar, and Sydney are "sexy," while covering events like the global reduction in infant mortality rates are not. Then there are other issues like climate change, which both the president and his interlocutor seemed to agree represent a graver threat to your life than do murderous Islamist fundamentalists. But the changing climate is a matter that is, however, far too complex for the press to relate to the average reader. Only a loyal consumer of Vox.com click bait could be expected to wrap their arms around the Gordian Knot of global warming.

"Look, the point is this: my first job is to protect the American people," Obama conceded. "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."

"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," he continued. "But we also have to attend to a lot of other issues, and we've got to make sure we’re right-sizing our approach so that what we do isn’t counterproductive."


Barack Obama, of course, decided to claim that Coulibaly had "randomly" shot up a "deli." This is Obama' stock in trade -- as regards terrorism, he is forever euphemizing and evading and in fact outright apologizing on behalf of Islamic terrorists.

Obama's claims to this effect drew some notice yesterday, even from Hollywood actors you'd expect to be very Pro-Obama.


As with Benghazi, and with Fort Hood, Obama will simply not declare Islamic terrorism to be Islamic terrorism, partly out of naked political self-interest -- he wishes to pretend he's banished terrorism and that "Al Qaeda's on the run" -- and partly because being a left-wing radical he naturally sympathizes with violent "Third-World" based rebellions and terrorist movements against the West.

Earlier today, Josh Earnest attempted to clean up for Obama by making more of a mess.

Think of the stupidest possible defense you could offer on Obama's behalf. That is of course the one Josh Earnest offered, because these people are Not Bright but they're also arrogant enough to believe they're Smarter Than Most.


They were not "specifically" targeted, in the sense that Coulibaly did not check to determine the precise names of Which Jews he would kill on that Jew-Killing Day.

Hey, Obama and Earnest? Go fuck yourselves to hell for me, okay?

So now, after Obama said that these people were "randomly" targeted -- just a bit of noise, really, compared to the real issue of Global Warming -- Josh Earnest comes in and doubles down and says "The president was right, As Always, it was totes 'random'!"

After Obama and Earnst strike out, now comes Jen Psaki to also say those people were randomly targeted:


That didn't fly -- her claim that non-Jews had been killed (had they? as this questioner asks, don't you expect to see mostly Jews at a Kosher market -- but Jen Psaki still refused to say Jews had been targeted. She again insists that people of "other backgrounds" were harmed (or could have been harmed).

After this scarifying stupidity, she attempts to clean up for herself:



Sorry, Jenni, your #PowerOfHashtag is failing.
