Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is preparing to deliver a speech to London’s Henry Jackson Society on Monday, and it’s a doozy. His prepared remarks were released on the Governor’s website, and they are very bold.
“I’m interested only in dealing with reality and facts. And the fact is that radical Islamists do not believe in freedom or common decency nor are they willing to accommodate them in any way and anywhere. We need to stop pretending otherwise. We are fools to pretend otherwise. How many Muslims in this world agree with these radicals?…it is clear that far too many do, and it is clear that they must be stopped.”
“Our former Secretary of State in America recently said that we need to ‘show respect for our enemies’ and ‘empathize with their perspective and point of view’…empathizing with them as if perhaps we can find some common ground, I have no interest in that kind of mindless naiveté.”
“There are people in the world who mean us harm, who desire our downfall, and who simply detest us because we stand for freedom. I have no interest in coddling them, or pretending that bad is good. Sugar coating the reality of the situation serves no purpose; we must not be afraid to speak the truth.”
“And in the West, non-assimilationist Muslims establish enclaves and carry out as much of Sharia law as they can without regard for the laws of the democratic countries which provided them a new home…
That is only the beginning. In one speech, Jindal breaks down seemingly every argument many are too afraid to make. You can read the full speech here.
