Biden At Panel on "Extremism:" You Know, Many Groups Commit Violence "In the Name of the Bible"

Apparently the Muslim Public Affairs Council demanded he say that, and so he did.

He also says that terrorists are radicalized by feelings of "marginalization."

A U.S. Islamic advocacy group says that Vice- President Joe Biden, addressing a White House summit on "countering violent extremism (CVE)" on Tuesday, referred to right-wing extremists and supremacists committing violence "in the name of the Bible."

The comments did not feature in Biden’s 19 minute-long opening remarks, televised by C-SPAN, in which the vice-president focused on America as a nation of immigrants, the need for different communities to "see" each other, and for countries to engage with "marginalized" communities.

"Biden just talked about the right wing militias & supremacist groups that are violent in the name of the Bible," the Washington-based Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) tweeted later in the afternoon.

"We wanted them (WH) to include other type of violent extremists. Now they have, let's keep asking and push," MPAC said.

MPAC has not responded to an invitation to comment further.


...

In his opening remarks at Tuesday’s panel discussion, Biden said the U.S. and other countries need to tackle violent extremism not just by using force, but by engaging communities that are "marginalized."

"We have to work from the ground up and engage our communities, and engage those who might be susceptible to being radicalized because they are marginalized."

"Societies have to provide an affirmative alternative for immigrant communities, a sense of opportunity, a sense of belonging that discredits the terrorist appeal to fear, isolation, hatred, resentment," he said.

Just curious if Muslim societies need to do anything differently to keep their indigenous, non-immigrant members from joining IS, or if, once again, only Western societies need to change to better adapt to Islamic sensibilities.

Note MPAC says he says this, and I assume they're right, but CNS is not actually confirming this, just saying MPAC says he said this.

Thanks to @johnekdahl, who writes, "Don't act surprised."

It's A General Push from the Entire Administration: Hapless idiot Marie Harf was sent out to push the "what about Christians" line that MPAC demands, asking why we don't talk about the (Christian) warlord Kony anymore.

Well, gee Marie, among other reasons, it could be that terrorists are not sawing off the heads of folks as a tribute to the Kony Caliphate.

So Many Good Folks Offering Their Contributions In This "Summit on Extremism" Like, for example, the guy who said Israel should be on the list of possible masterminds behind the 9/11 attacks.
