Liberals ignore or downplay the seriousness of the terrorist threat to our peril. Their infatuation with concepts such as diversity are a danger to our nation. While treating all with respect until they act to forfeit it is an noble act, this is not what they are doing. The left routinely promotes dangerous groups that can serve as vehicles for increasing their political power. Such groups often hide behind a corrupted understanding of right to religious freedom as they continue their nefarious plans.
The danger and blatant cruelty that Islamic terrorists bring to America has been recently illustrated by the truck attack in New York City where eight people were killed. The man who committed this atrocity was on a mission to murder innocent Americans on behalf of ISIS.
After sustaining wounds from his attack, Sayfullo Saipov was sent to a hospital to recover. If there was any question as to his motivation for committing this act of terror, he has settled that while hospitalized. He demanded an ISIS flag be flow in his room. President Trump responded with a very simple call: Death Penalty.
In case you need a review of the facts of this case, “[Saipov] killed 8 innocent people after driving a rental truck from Home Depot into a crowd of people on a popular bikeway in New York City and was shot by an officer trying to stop a continued attack. Sources indicate that he was also looking to cause havoc on the Brooklyn Bridge but never got around to it because he was captured. Any guns found in or around the truck were fakes.”
He was hospitalized for treatment for his wounds, and it was in his hospital room that “he was looking to hang an ISIS flag to prove his loyalty to the terror organization. But President Trump wasn’t having it.”
Instead of accommodating this murdering lunatic, our president has called for the death penalty.
“NYC terrorist was happy as he asked to hang ISIS flag in his hospital room. He killed 8 people, badly injured 12. SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 2, 2017”

Elements of the left are objecting to the president’s comments, trying to obfuscate by drawing some equivalency between this at the recent tragedy in Las Vegas by using one of their favorite claims, that of racism, as a vehicle. That’s irrelevant except to the degree it demonstrates the left’s love-affair with radical Islam regardless of the dangers or incompatibility of beliefs.
Those who create an environment in which such terrorism can thrive need to be held responsible. This can begin by demanding the left condemn all such acts, and confess what Mr. Obama refused to do — that radical Islam presents a danger to Americans. Any failure to do so makes them complicit in crimes such this.
