The Orlando terrorist pledged allegiance to ISIS, Islam and said 'Allah Akbar' while executing 49 people at Pulse nightclub. In spite of these facts, some in the mainstream media say we may never know what his real motivation was.
The motivation seems pretty obvious to anyone using reason and common sense. While this doesn't apply to members of the media and our own government, it does include one startling group: Islamic extremists.
Even they make it unequivocally clear it is about Islam.
In the latest issue of Al-Qaeda's magazine, terrorists are being told to avoid targeting places and crowds where minorities are generally found because --- get this --- the U.S. federal government will muck up the message and say it's about sexuality instead of justice handed out by Islamists.
"They're now saying you better target white straight people or they're going to say this is about minorities. They're going to say this is about sexuality. You've got to target white people," Glenn said on his radio program Wednesday.
Other countries seem to understand the real threat without editorial reminders from radical terrorists. Co-host Pat Gray made an observation on this.
"What's interesting, too, is that every other government seems to believe them when they tell them, 'Hey, we're from ISIS and we're blowing up your airport and shooting people because we're from ISIS.' The Turks have no problem believing it," Pat said.
Naming the enemy turns out to be a fairly critical component in beating the bad guys.
"We could not have won World War II if we refused to talk about the Nazis," Glenn said. "This is how it doesn't make sense at all. By saying that we're racist by saying 'Islamic extremism' is the same as saying you are a racist against all Germans by saying you're going after the Nazis. It's the exact opposite."
