Obama Blames ISIS on Media. Yes Really...
How many more days until January 2017? We've told you how President Obama doesn't seem to care give a s*** be engaged in the War on Terror (see DHS Shocker: Obama Admin Gutted Program Tracking Bernardino Shooter’s Mosque and Sharyl Attkisson: Obama Actually Ignores U.S. Recognized Terrorist Groups). His approval rating has taken a hit because of it. When the President of the United States doesn't seem to know what's going on, the people of the United States get concerned. Crazies.
It's not the President's fault, though. It's the media's fault for reporting bad news he doesn't want them to. You should've known that. Because obviously.
“Well, I think what’s fair is, post-Paris, you had a saturation of news about the horrible attack there, and ISIL combines viciousness with very savvy media operations,” Obama said. “And as a consequence, if you’ve been watching television for the last month, all you’ve been seeing, all you’ve been hearing about is these guys with masks or black flags who are potentially coming to get you, so I understand why people are concerned about it.”
“Look, the media is pursuing ratings,” he said. “This is a legitimate news story. I think that, you know, it’s up to the media to make a determination about how they want to cover things.”
I can't even. But I'll try. Take deep breath, we're going to wade into the stink.
You know who else had bad press just about every day, or twice a day? Scratch that, even minute? Bush. The media was determined to make Bush out to be a war mongering idiot. Yes, that phrase makes sense if you remember how the media covered Bush for the majority of his time in office. One day he was an idiot who couldn't eat a pretzel. The others he was a crafty conspirator hiding secrets about Saddam. Also, there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. You know who didn't complain about all the negative coverage on Bush? Bush. Just saying.
I've been looking for an excuse to use this GIF for months.
But back to ISIS. Yeah, people are genuinely afraid. It's reasonable. ISIS will cut off your head. They're threatening Europeans to convert or die. They rape women and young girls (or boys) for the thrill of it. ISIS has infiltrated Europe and probably the United States through the refugee program. ISIS killed 140 people in Paris. ISIS gunman, a husband and wife, killed 14 people in San Bernardino. How does Obama act? Not with leadership. Not with a plan to stop ISIS. He complains about the media. He complains we, the American people, are getting our panties in a wad. That we're over-reacting.
Wake me up in January of 2017...
