Lets Give The Platitudes Surrounding Terrorism A Rest The Federalist Following the terrorist attack in Manchester that left at least 22 people dead and dozens injured, most of them children, President Donald Trump referred to terrorists as evil losers in life.
As expected, a number of liberal pundits mocked the presidents unrefined language.
Inadvertently or not, Trump landed on a plain-spoken, stinging moniker that happens to also be true. No matter how many girls the next Salman Abedi ends up killing, theocratic dead-enders are, in every societal, ideological, and historical sense, losers.
Perhaps some blunt language will lead to some clearer thinking on the issue. Over the past eight years at least the topic has been obscured by clinical euphemisms and feel-good platitudes for the sake of winning hearts and minds.
Hows that going, by the way? If unkind words about Islam Trumps rhetoric on immigration, for instance offers aid and comfort to ISIS or compels more Muslims to blow up pressure cookers filled with nails to kill infidel children, that acknowledges what might be a terrible truth about the state of Islam, not American society.
Leaders in Western nations have gone out of their way to craft rhetoric that circumvents Islam completely when speaking about terrorism.

Their overcompensation to imagined backlashes has given real-life excuses to ignore the pervasive violence, misogyny, homophobia, child abuse, tyranny, anti-Semitism, bigotry against Christians, etc.
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam makes every critic a hater.
After every Manchester or Paris or Nice, we are immediately instructed to watch our language and tone. Because love is love.
After the terror, the platitudes. Inhabitat It seems like everyone is modifying Volkswagen cars these days, but youve never seen one like this.

Oyeyiola, now in his last year of university, spent the better part of a year retrofitting the old Beetle. He put a solar panel on top of the car, and a wind turbine in the engine. I came up [with] building a car that will use both winds and solar energy for its movement, said Oyeyiola.
This was my personal project because of the problem Im planning to solve. He plans to continue improving the car, particularly the battery, which requires hours to completely charge.Women Disunited - Margaret Atwoods the Handmaids Tale as a Crit.
