A “counter-narrative”?

Leave it to Eric Holder to explain how we’re going to fight Islamic terrorists.  From This Week with George Stephanopolis on Sunday:

“STEPHANOPOULOS: The French prime minister said yesterday that France is at war with radical Islam.

Is the U.S. At war with radical Islam?

HOLDER: Well, I certainly think that we are at war with those who would commit terrorist attacks and who would corrupt the Islamic faith in the way that they do, to try to justify their terrorist actions.

So that’s who we are at — at war with. And we are determined to take the fight to them to prevent them from engaging in these kinds of activities.

Our president has indicated that we will be calling, on February the 18th, a summit, so that we deal with better ways in which we can counter violent extremism and really get at the core, come up with ways in which we prevent people from adhering to, being attracted to this terrorist ideology.

We certainly have to work, I think, in a dual way. We need to confront people who engage in these acts, hold them accountable. But we also have to somehow come up with a counter-narrative that too many people, especially young men, find attractive.

And, as I said, February the 18th, the White House will host a summit that I announced at the meeting here today in Paris.”

There you’ve got it, they’re not Islamic and we’re not at war with them, really, and in case you missed it, we need to hold terrorists accountable as the Obama administration continues to release the most dangerous GITMO Islamic terrorists.  ” But we also have to somehow come up with a counter-narrative that too many people, especially young men, find attractive”.  Yes, of course, “a counter-narrative” will dissuade bloodthirsty barbarians…..

  1. We are ruled by a cabal of cowards, physical and moral.

    Whoever’s scripting for Holder is eerily similar to whoever is scripting for the DRPK.
