On Tuesday, June 28, Senator Ted Cruz lead a critical Congressional hearing on the willful blindness of the Obama administration on the prohibition of language in the fight against radical Islam. The Obama administration is a long time aggressor in obstructing the use of key language, engaging in an ongoing Orwellian purge of identifiers that link the acts of radical groups with the political doctrine of Islam.
Leading the conversation, Senator Cruz denounced President Obama’s insistence that ISIS is not Islamic. The Counter Violent Extremism efforts under the Obama administration have relied on omitting religious language including jihad, sharia, takfir and ummah – words that are used daily by Muslims. There have been over 600 instances of language (and documents) being scrubbed from record under his administration – actions that were often times initiated by Secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton.
The CounterJihad stream was live in covering the events with rapid-fire responses and tweets under the hashtag #willfullblindness. For more, check out a recap of the events and my initial two responses.
