It is important to note that Obama's CVE program focused on radicalism within the U.S., and critics, including ANP, have often highlighted the contradiction of targeting veterans who put their lives on the line for America, religion groups, Christians, preppers, survivalists and others, while making it official policy to not even utter the words radical Islamic extremism, despite the terrorist attacks in U.S. perpetrated by violent Islamic radical jihadist.
Hoda Hawa, director of policy for the Muslim Public Affairs Council, said she was told last week by people within DHS that there was a push to refocus the CVE effort from tackling all violent ideology to only Islamist extremism.
"That is concerning for us because they are targeting a faith group and casting it under a net of suspicion," she said.
That is a very disingenuous argument, but one to which the MSM is liable to run with, as the Trump administration is not targeting a "faith group," as the proposed name change clearly highlights "extremism," not just "Islamic." They wish to conflate the issue, making it appear that all Muslims are being targeted, much like they have done with President Trump's immigration pause from countries with a high level of terrorist activity, by consistently phrasing it as "majority Muslim" countries, rather than accurately highlighting they are countries with huge levels of terrorists.
"Can we stop saying 'seven majority Muslim countries'? It's very loaded," Baker wrote in an email to editors obtained by POLITICO. "The reason they've been chosen is not because they're majority Muslim but because they're on the list of countRies [sic] Obama identified as countries of concern. Would be less loaded to say 'seven countries the US has designated as being states that pose significant or elevated risks of terrorism.'"
Wow, and honest member of the MSM, yet he will most likely be forced to walk that back or be out of a job soon, because the liberal MSM won't go for that, because it would prevent them from pushing their preferred narrative that President Trump is targeting "all Muslims."
And just think, if during the past 8 years, the Obama administration had been tracking down terrorists who want to do Americans harm and destroy our way of life instead of focusing our multibillion dollar NSA snooping apparatus upon US patriots, Christians, 2nd Amendment supporters and other Conservatives , President Trump might not have to be going through the steps that he is taking that are absolutely necessary to 'weed out' the very bad dudes that have come here to the US only for jihad.
The immigration pause in order for the Trump administration to review the vetting process to determine how to make it more stringent to prevent terrorists from infiltrating the refugee program, is just a start, that will help "weed" out jihadists from those truly in need of a safe haven, but that is just part of the battle.
We have had terrorists imported into America, hiding within the refugees, in order to come into the U.S. to plan attacks like the ones mentioned and linked to earlier in the article.
President Trump is going to have to address the armed radical extremists groups within U.S. borders that are preparing for their Jihad against America, groups that the Clarion project has been exposing for years, training camps within our borders, caught on video footage as they train, a small sample of which is explained below:
No one is asserting that all Muslims are violent radical extremists, nor that there are not dangerous individuals from a variety of other demographics, but the highest profile attacks in the U.S., Germany, France and other countries in recent years, killing hundreds and injuring thousands more, have been carried out by radical Islamic extremists, and it makes sense to address the most dangerous first.
President Trump has been handed a mess and he is going to have to address issues that Obama deliberately ignored for eight years, as it got worse and worse, and the MSM is going to collude to describe every action he takes to dismantle terror cells within America and prevent terror attacks on U.S., as Islamophobia, as they have already started to do over his immigration pause from countries with high levels of terrorist activity.
