Breitbart News National Security Editor Dr. Sebastian Gorka, author of the best-selling Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War, told Sean Hannity of Fox News it was significant and profoundly disturbing that the Democrats have yet to mention Islamic terrorism or ISIS, two days into their convention.
“A pregnant woman murdered yesterday, a priest beheaded in front of the altar at a Catholic mass — this is incredible,” said Gorka. “They can’t talk about it, because if they do, they’ll admit that they don’t have a plan, and what they’ve been trying has been an absolute failure.”
Gorka offered a “shout-out” to investigative journalist Patrick Poole for tallying up the carnage: “In the last two months, outside of Iraq and Syria — so outside of the war zone — there’s been a jihadi attack every 83 hours.”
On top of President Obama’s claim that, contrary to those grim statistics, the Western world is safer than it’s ever been because of his policies, Gorka noted the even more absurd and offensive statement by Secretary of State John Kerry that “air conditioners are as dangerous as ISIS.”
“There’s a petition that already has 2,000 signatures that the State Department should get rid of their air conditioners because they’re so dangerous,” he said. “You have to laugh, Sean, because if you don’t laugh, you realize how bad the situation is.”
“Let’s forget, if we can, for a moment, forget about the horror of a priest killed in front of nuns, in front of parishioners,” Gorka said. “Let’s look at here — forget about France, forget about Paris, about Brussels, Istanbul. We have killed, or arrested, 107 people linked to ISIS in America since the caliphate was declared two years ago. So in 24 months, we’ve arrested 107. That is three times as many ISIS suspects we are intercepting than we are arresting al-Qaeda suspects.”
“The situation is rapidly deteriorating,” he warned. “But the Democrat Party, Hillary Clinton, President Obama, don’t look for any problems, everything’s fine here.”
“For the left wing, for the Democrat Party, reality is optional, Sean,” Gorka concluded.
