In Passing

Either fools or liars

More Mush From the Wimps  Dept

Via Jim Hoft:
Martha MacCallum [Fox News]:  Leaders... in Canada, and Australia and Paris... [have] all said quite clearly that the battle is against Islamic extremism.  Why is that so hard [for the U.S. government] to say?

Marie Harf [State Department Deputy Secretary]:  Well, it’s not hard to say but it’s not the only type of extremism we face. I would recommend people look at this administration’s counter-terrorism record…  Much of it is Islamic.  But some of it is not. So we’re going to focus on all of the different kinds of extremism.  With a heavy focus on those who do this in the name of Islam.  We would say falsely in the name of Islam. But there are other forms of extremism.

MacCallum:  Tell me, what other forms of extremism are particularly troubling and compelling to you right now?

Harf: Well look, there are people out there who want to kill other people in the name of a variety of causes.
Government by #TheBestAndBrightest.  (Ain’t it wonderful!)

UPDATE:  Seems one thing they’re ‘‘troubled’’ by is ‘‘extreme” speech that Muslims might not like:
President Barack Obama has a moral responsibility to push back on the nation’s journalism community when it is planning to publish anti-jihadi articles that might cause a jihadi attack against the nation’s defenses forces, the White House’s press secretary said Jan. 12.

"The president … will not now be shy about expressing a view or taking the steps that are necessary to try to advocate for the safety and security of our men and women in uniform” whenever journalists’ work may provoke jihadist attacks, spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at the White House’s daily briefing.
I guess that makes it clear.  Fools.
