    Knives are out: Hawaii Dem faces backlash for taking on Obama over Islamist extremism

    Knives are out: Hawaii Dem faces backlash for taking on Obama over Islamist extremism | Fox News
    She was Hawaii's golden girl after winning a seat in Congress with support from top liberal groups, but now that Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has been critical of President Obama, her political reputation in the bluest of blue states is taking a hit.
    That isn’t stopping the twice-deployed 33-year-old Army veteran from continuing to challenge the president, her home state's favorite son, over his refusal to identify terror groups like the Islamic State as driven by "radical Islam.”
    I usually consider it a good thing when extremely promising young Democrats are destroyed by their own party but considering how far left and out on a ledge the Democrat Party has gone recently, and how fanatically it works at destroying freedom of speech and thought, I can't help but feel distraught and fearful for my children's and grandchildren's futures after reading this.

    I know pressure to tow the party line occurs in both parties but rarely over such serious national security issues and never over something so asinine as refusing to admit that the islamic state terrorists do what they do because they believe in a dangerously fanatical version of Islam.

    My very first impression when I first read the title was that this was about a Dem effort to ban knives.

    It is incredibly stupid to support the usage of the term "radical Islam" because in doing so you are essentially handing a propaganda victory to terrorists by associating them with genuine Islam. So anybody who supports usage of this term is supporting shooting ourselves in the foot. The irrational desire to use the term even when it is strategically harmful to do so can only be explained as a ignorant attitude towards Islam generally, which is totally unacceptable. Usually you see this sort of idiocy from the Republicans, it is a bit surprising to see it from a Democrat this time. Glad that she is facing backlash.

    That's alright another Democrat is taking it to BO peep. The more the merrier. Hopefully the putz will start taking notice. Then cry about how others are all against him. Calling him names, picking on him. Truly showing all of his Wuss Characteristics again.



    President Obama has faced intense criticism from Republicans for his reluctance to label ISIS an “Islamic” group. But that’s not particularly remarkable. More noteworthy is that a member of the president’s own party – from his home state – has taken repeated shots at him: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii.

    “The administration is misidentifying the enemy and their motivation,” Gabbard said on CNN earlier this week, calling the president’s emphasis on economic aspects of terrorism a “diversion.”....snip~

    No ones got their knives out. Righties are all giddy that a Dem legislator disagrees...or better said...agrees with righties on calling terrorists religious jihadists.

    The people who invent a term like "RINO" sure harp a lot about disagreement among Democrats.
