Radical Islam? What's That?
The Virginian ^ | 5/14/2010 | Moneyrunner

Posted on 05/14/2010 4:26:03 AM PDT by moneyrunner

Could radical Islam be responsible for recent terrorist attacks inside the U.S.? That question doesn't seem like too much of a poser, but it was too much for Attorney General Eric Holder when he testified before the House Judiciary Committee today. Rep. Lamar Smith tries to get Holder to acknowledge that radical Islam could have played a role in one or more of the recent attacks, but Holder apparently views it as a trick question:

Radical Islam is a redundant term.

Holder’s a weak little weasel who is merely echoing his boss’s love for Islam. You will never hear this President condemn radical Islam. That is the “religion” of his upbringing, after all.

I heard that clip on the Midnight Radio Network last night.

Nothing short of AMAZING! Holder is out of his mind.

If Holder was truthful (impossible) he would have to admit
radical Islam is in the White House - systematically
destroying America with his help.

The look on Holder's face reminds me of that kid in high school or the guy in the office meeting who stares at the teacher/boss, nods his head and squints, as if trying with all his might to catch some of the sound waves and convert them to semi-intelligible singals before they escape out of the ear oppisite the one through which they entered the head.

It just looks like it's taking so much effort, whereas the question being asked could not be more straight forward. We really do have an administration full of incompetent morons, don't we?

Unfrikkenbelievable!

Holder twists himself into a pretzel to avoid making a simple factual statement about radical islam.

He actually appears to be rather insane! He will consider any motive for the attempted terror attack but the truth!

He says he doesn’t want to put down a religion. I bet he wouldn’t hestitate if it were Christianity. Heck, they call Christians radical for much less than putting a bomb in Times Square.

It is a trick question for sure. It is a real trick to get these folks to speak even the most obvious truth. They are tortured by direct questions. If you waterboarded them you might be more successful in getting the truth out of them.

They're not morons...they're enemy sympathizers!

What Holder is doing, plain and simple, is discounting (whitewashing) the crime by confusing the motive.

When he says that there were a variety of motives for the crime, he exonerates the real criminal, Islam!

No doubt they are incompetent, in way over their heads, and more interested in running their domestic agenda but...

...no one is this dumb. Really. I mean, the PC blinders can only filter out so much. I think Holder knows it is just a matter of time before the terrorists do something else to further embarrass and prove that obama and his cohorts in crime don't know WTF they are doing.

The good thing about these ongoing terrorist incidents is that they provide object lessons to the US Citizens that obama and crew are incompetent socialist idiots. The bad thing about these incidents is that these lessons come at the expense and risk to American lives, including yours, mine, our families' and friends'.

Sympathy? The Pres_ _ent Obama Administration actively supports the attacks.

They play BOTH sides for the Obama Caliphate.

Fact: Army Major (Hasan) was on the Presidential Transition Team
and Hasan served on the Homeland Security Policy Institute’s
presidential transition task force

Fact: The Obama Caliphate (U.S.S.R. Government Pays $23,000 a Month
to Mosque of Ft. Hood Shooting Supporter Al-Awlaki
.

Fact: The Obama Caliphate and Holder’s DOJ have systematically helped
every Enemy of America, every terrorist taken,
as Obama ditched every American ally.

Fact:

Absolutely!

While I believe many in the administration (and Libs in general) are sympathetic to the enemy, I believe Obama himself is an enemy combatant!

As regards Holder, I haven't quite figured him out yet.

He is certainly grossly sympathetic to and tireless in serving the cause of islam, but I don't know enough about his background and experience to know if he is, in fact, a muslim.

Radical Islam is any act or belief in Allah as the Supreme Deity and Muhammad as his Messenger - based upon the book Muhammad wrote. Any faith that maintains as central tenets that non-believers must either be converted, enslaved or murdered - with no other options - is, at its’ most fundamental core - a radical faith.

Don't make the mistake of believing these people are stupid. Anything but stupid.

They got a black-muslim Marxist elected President. They brilliantly engineered a huge new round of socialism on America, in little more than a year, despite widespread opposition. That is not moronic, it is very clever.

Never underestimate your enemy, & never confuse evil with stupid. Either attitude will hurt you.

Holder simply didn't want to admit that islamists have anything to do with terrorism, because he sympathizes with them. Holder needs to go! He is neither fair, nor impartial. Not the best person to decide what is prosecuted & what is not.

“Radical Islam” sounds a lot like “extra medium”.

I've learned to never underestimate just how dumb it is possible for a person to be.

I was listening to Sirius "LEFT" the other day and a readio host was using the "his house got foreclosed on so he decided to plant a bomb in NY" defense on Shahzad, to the point that even his leftist guest was saying that is ridiculous.

Normal people have had their house foreclosed on; they might get drunk, punch a wall, get divorced, etc. The most extreme cases commit suicide... but plotting to kill hundreds of innocent people? How do these quacks make such a connection?

I agree that, as time passes by, the incompetence becomes more apparent with every passing circus act of a situation. I just hope you are right that US Citizens catch on, and enough of them catch on before November.

Very good point - thank you. One I will keep in mind.

The look on his face, nevertheless, is just plain stupid. Some people look that way deliberately so as to confuse and mislead. Perhaps evil is the better word to describe them.

I don't know enough about Holder to comment further on him, however, from the clip it's obvious that the question goes against what he believes.

Kind of similar to a situation when one doesnt want to lie, but doesn't want to tell the truth either, so one speaks in broad generalities rather than specifics.

“attorney general” now equals “attorney fool” or “attorney appeaser”

Thanks for posting this video — I’d seen references to the exchange but hadn’t actually witnessed it. I find interesting how insistent Holder was on explaining that the actual teachings of Islam are different from what these bad radical people are saying and doing. How does the know that?

IMO, the Liberal philosophy is so illogical & irrational that it can never be clearly explained w/o being laughed out of the room. This is why they can’t explain their policies w/o lying, babbling, and/or just refusing to answer, as Holder has been doing since day one. He wouldn’t make any sense if he actually told the truth. He is trying hard not to get laughed at.

Mainstream Islam wants you converted, enslaved or dead- your choice. Radical Islam simply skips the first two.
