Trump Gets on Track by Claiming Obama Founded ISIS

(Before It's News)

Now, this is what Donald Trump needs to do. It’s vintage Trump and the kind of thing that got him the Republican nomination.

His claim that Obama, with help from Hillary, is the “founder” of ISIS has spurred outrage! OUTRAGE, I tell you! Who would say such thing??


Part of the seamy underside of political correctness is that everything that is said is taken literally. There is no room for imagination, for understatement, for suggestion. Everything is to be interpreted as being meant exactly as it was said. And therefore, it’s an insult! It’s untrue! Because we have rules now, you see? And if someone makes a statement that sounds a little off, that sounds a little biased, THEN THAT PERSON IS A LITTLE OFF AND VERY BIASED. Because when you are policing speech, you must be vigilant, and everything that is said may be used against you in the court of political correctness.

That’s why we are not permitted to make jokes. It’s offensive. Because you must really mean it.

Professional comedians seems to get an exception, up to an extent. It’s like you need a license to tell jokes.

Plowing through such attitudes is at the heart of Trump’s appeal, and that is what he is doing here.

Trump didn’t mean Obama “founded” ISIS. He is suggesting, with a little drama, that Obama is responsible for ISIS. Which Obama, by withdrawing all U.S. combat troops from Iraq, undoubtedly is.

By making the statement politically incorrectly, Trump has sparked a day of rage that puts him in the news and reminds everyone that he is not subject to the sneering snobs who are trying to pound us all into submission to their worldview by controlling our language.

Picking on Obama and Clinton is a much better strategy than fighting with the Khans, even though the Khans, who lent themselves to a political cause, thoroughly deserved it.
