From the Weekly Standard.
The White House press secretary said Monday the United States is in a “narrative fight, a narrative battle” with the Islamic State terrorist group. Josh Earnest, speaking with CNN host Chris Cuomo about the recent bombings in New York and New Jersey as well as the stabbing attack in Minnesota over the weekend, said the Obama administration has “made progress in debunking” the “mythology” that ISIS represents Islam in a fight against the West.
“When it comes to ISIL, we are in a fight, a narrative fight, with them, a narrative battle,” said Earnest “And what ISIL wants to do is they want to project that they are an organization that is representing Islam in a fight, in a war against the West, in a war against the United States. That is a bankrupt, false narrative. It’s a mythology. And we have made progress in debunking that mythology.”
Yeah, here’s the narratives:
“We are not at war with Islam”
“Don’t sensationalize”…”Don’t rush to judgement”…”Mass shooting”…
‘What difference does it make?,
“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
“Hateful rhetoric towards Muslims”
Blame the Tea Party/Republicans
Scrutinizing ‘refugees’ is ‘not who we are’.
CNN’s leading jihadist Christiane Amanpour calls muzzie terrorists “activists”.
Blame the Jews/Christians
While you’re ‘debunking the mythology’ muslims are on a world-wide rampage.
Euphemisms, spin, talking points, kowtowing, pandering, screeching accusations of ‘phobia’, and just plain chickenshit is what we’ve seen the last eight years.
