"Islamic terrorists or violent terrorists..?" 'James "Kimo" Rosen' (Kimo's world #102 special terror edition...)

James "Kimo"Rosen is a retired Professional Photographer
 living on the Garden Island of Kaua'i
 with his best friend Obama Da Dog.

Islamic terrorists or violent terrorists?

(Kimo's world #102-special terror edition..)

Islamic terrorists or violent terrorists?

Why is it that if you are a Democrat or Republican, or a member of any other political  party people expect you to agree on all issues of your said party.  I like to call myself an independent--sometimes, the majority of the time, I usually take a democratic stance, however of late I've been taking a more conservative approach.

Just because you might like President Obama does not mean you have to agree with President Obama on all terms.

The recent San Bernardino shootings are a prime example. These were Islam extremists, however the White House does not want us to use that word.


I understand being politically correct and trying not to offend anybody, however it's gotten to a point lately where many people are afraid to voice their true feelings because of the political correctness that has taken shape in America.

Although many are upset with Donald Trump and his high rankings in the presidential polls, one needs to realize why this is happening. This is happening because people are sick and tired of politics as is and what was.

How much worse would it be if a non politician like Trump  became president?

The United States is not a dictatorship,  even if Donald Trump became president laws need to be approved through Congress.

 It's strange these days, depending on what I post on Facebook any given day-- I can lose 10 to 15 friends because they don't agree with me. Actually I have too many friends (over 1600)on Facebook and the  best way to weed that  list down is to express your political agenda.

Our country has become too sensitive on every little matter. You can no longer call someone  'mentally retarded,' they are now mentally challenged. You can no longer call a homosexual a homosexual,they are now gay. 

  No longer can you call a stewardess a stewardess--they are now flight attendants. Salesmen have become account executives. Janitors are custodial engineers, and people who cut your lawn and pull weeds are called landscape artists. Are black people, black people, or Afro-Americans?

When did sleeping with someone turn into meaning making love? When I was a kid when you slept with someone it was exactly that.  God forbid you compliment a female co-worker  and tell her she looks awesome, this can now be interpreted as sexual harassment.

It's not nice to say shut up, but please be quiet is OK. I held back giving more examples since I am trying hard to not offend anyone. Good luck to me on that!
If only there were
more situations like this...


Finally, Are members of the Islamic State "Islamic" extremists? Or are they, as President  Obama calls them, "violent extremists"?

 Remember words are powerful and should be measured carefully, however enough is enough!

Merry Christmas, oh wait, Happy Holidays!




Check this out!~Trump is just like Hitler. Or Jimmy Carter.Interesting... Well?
During the Iranian hostage crisis, Carter issued a number of orders to put pressure on Iran. Among these, Iranians were banned from entering the United States unless they oppose the Shiite Islamist regime or had a medical emergency.

Watch it now...someone might call you a racist if you don't agree with everything Obama does. Been my experience anyway.

Yea, already lost a few of my "1600 plus" friends. People are strange these days, They feel if you don't agree with them on all levels all the time, you can't be friends? So be it! OY!

You give some good examples of PC that we can all be exasperated about (I do hope "afro-americans" was a typo). However, remember that our language is a living thing constantly changing. In 20 years, a young person will not relate at all to the effort it takes you and I to say " flight attendant" during this transitional period.
However, although Trump is claiming a simple battle against PC, he has gone way, way beyond that. Advocating discrimination against people based on their religion or denouncing all Mexicans is not a battle against PC. It's exploiting racist and religious bigotry that already exists.
Unfortunately, the POTUS is subject to incredible PC since his every word actually does affect things everywhere. He has an entire staff to help with this. They've decided on a policy that fits current US foreign policy efforts. We don't have to do it. Why would that bother you?

Pete,

I don't understand your question. And can you add the comment to my Facebook post of this blog, more people respond to that. I eventually transfer all comments form Facebook to the blog.

Aloha

The question at the end of my post concerns your complaint that the POTUS says "violent extremists" instead of "Islamic extremists."
