Conservatives think President Barack Obama is a “fool” for ignoring the realities of Islamist terrorism — and that’s putting it mildly.
Obama attributed Thursday’s horrific shootings of four U.S. Marines in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to a “lone gunman.”
“We don’t know yet all the details,” Obama said of what he called the “heartbreaking circumstance.” “We know that what appears to be a lone gunman carried out these attacks.”
He extended “the deepest sympathies of the American people” to the slain Marines’ families, and asked all Americans to pray for them.
That was all.
Chattanooga marks the seventh Islamist terror attack on U.S. soil since Obama took office. That’s not a circumstance, heartbreaking or otherwise.
Author and columnist Michelle Malkin immediately got on the horn and tweeted:
Lightning strikes are “heartbreaking circumstances.” Systemic assassinations of our troops is an act of war, fool==> https://t.co/qcDmu0ADuP

Malkin received plenty of support, including one who noted the only “heartbreaking circumstance” of the shooting: that U.S. military installations have been made “gun-free zones.”

I would rather my president’s statement be a mass carpet bombing of ISIS with shock & awe campaign. But that’s just me. @michellemalkin

@michellemalkin A “heartbreaking circumstance” is this anti-American idiologue being elected twice. These killings were complicit negligence

Before Obama made made his brief statement on the shootings, he extended a “happy Eid-ul-Fitr” to U.S. Muslims.
