Everybody has so-called legitimate grievances, but 99.999% percent of them don’t kill people because of them. In fact, saying you killed somebody because you had a grievance against that person won’t get you very far in court unless you’re a homosexual couple that wanted a cake made for a same-sex wedding and the owner of the bakery could not do it for conscience sake.
I have numerous grievances against our government and politicians who enable state-sponsored economic tyranny, and yet I’m not going to kill anybody because of them.
President Obama has taken the grievance show on the road. He’s out there trying to excuse, to some degree, Islamic violence because he claims those performing these atrocities have legitimate grievances.
Here’s some of President Obama’s grievance speech:
“Governments that deny human rights play into the hands of extremists who claim that violence is the only way to achieve change. Efforts to counter violent extremism will only succeed if citizens can address legitimate grievances through the democratic process and express themselves through strong civil societies.”
So what “legitimate grievances” did the Muslim terrorists have against 21 Coptic Christians that required their beheading? No amount of democracy would have dissuaded them.
“Since 2010, Boko Haram has targeted schools, killing hundreds of students. A spokesperson for the group said such attacks would continue as long as the Nigerian government continued to interfere with traditional Islamic education. 10,000 children have been unable to attend school as a result of activities by Boko Haram. Boko Haram has also been known to kidnap girls, whom it believes should not be educated, and use them as cooks or sex slaves.
“Boko Haram’s attacks have intensified in 2014. In February, the group killed more than 100 Christian men in the villages of Doron Baga and Izghe. Also in February, 59 boys were killed in the Federal Government College attack in northeastern Nigeria. In March, the group attacked the Giwa military barracks, freeing captured militants. The abduction occurred on the same day as a bombing attack in Abuja in which at least 88 people died. Boko Haram has been blamed for nearly 4,000 deaths in 2014.”
There’s nothing in this report about jobs. It’s all about the advance of Islam through terror…
