Bush Speaks Truth to Power

Sphere: Related Content

The Donks love the old "truth to power" rhetoric. Well old W. spoke some serious truth to power and called the murderous terrorist thugs what they really are--Islamic Fascists.

Of course the Muslim community--especially CAIR--is steaming:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Muslim groups criticized
President on Thursday for calling a foiled plot to blow up airplanes part of a "war with Islamic fascists," saying the term could inflame anti-Muslim tensions.

No, supporting those who wish to blow up Americans on planes would inflame anti-Muslim tensions.

U.S. officials have said the plot, thwarted by Britain, to blow up several aircraft over the Atlantic bore many of the hallmarks of al Qaeda.

"We believe this is an ill-advised term and we believe that it is counterproductive to associate Islam or Muslims with fascism," said Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations advocacy group.

If extremist Muslims act like fascists, talk like fascists and kill like fascists, I believe the term is apt.

Charles has more here and here.
