There are those who have claimed that radical Islamists and their apologists have infiltrated (or been invited into) President Barack Obama’s administration, exerting their influence over the administration’s policies.
Those allegations and suspicions may have just been confirmed by government watchdog group Judicial Watch, which recently reported on an FBI anti-violent extremism website aimed at young people that makes virtually no mention of radical Islamic extremism.
The FBI website is known as “Don’t Be A Puppet,” and briefly went live in November 2015, before being rapidly taken down following complaints by Muslim advocacy groups, saying the site was biased and discriminatory towards Muslims.
The site has gone live again after apparently being re-tooled, and now lists a host of different types of extremist groups, such as “white supremacy extremists, environmental extremists, militia extremists, religious extremists and anarchist extremists,” but no mention of radical Islamic extremists.
The website goes on to describe violent extremism as “encouraging, condoning, justifying or supporting the commission of a violent act to achieve political, ideological, religious, social or economic goals.”
The site even lists known Muslim terrorist outfits like Al Qaeda and their many affiliates, as well as the Islamic State group, but makes clear that such groups don’t “represent mainstream Islam and the vast majority of Muslims are horrified by their actions.”
Judicial Watch slammed the whitewashing.
“This pathetic censorship is part of a broader effort by the government to appease Muslim rights groups, which have proven to wield tremendous power in the Obama administration,” the group’s report declared.
“This is especially true of the terrorist front organization Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which also flexed its muscle in this matter,” the report continued. “It was CAIR that got the FBI to purge anti-terrorism material determined to be offensive to Muslims.”
This is simply the latest example of the Obama administration seemingly going out of its way to appease and pacify the apologists for radical Islam, utterly refusing to accept the reality of the world around us, or even to name the most prominent and threatening enemy our nation and Western society face.
