There are a lot of stories floating around about terrorists and what that implies. In our past we have dealt with a terrorist named Osama Bin Laden among others. Soleimani was just the latest that America has dealt with. The Democrats and Iran are accusing Trump of being a terrorist. As an American, this single thing should be your wakeup call.
Not that you have to agree with Trump’s actions on Iran or his policies. The fact that the Democratic party is siding with Iran after the long history of Iran killing Americans should concern you. The label of a terrorist is a label that should be reserved for the worst of the worst.
I think if you must look at the underling character to determine if they are a terrorist. Webster’s says that a terrorist is one that advocates or practices terrorism. This would be the act or threat of violence as a means to intimidate or coerce. Nothing about Trump’s actions were to intimidate or coerce. He did this to send a message.
But Trump is a terrorist because of all that he has done. The argument from the left is that Trump set off a drone strike without congressional approval. It seems they forget that Obama did this over 2800 times. It’s just the garbage we have heard before. Trump was a terrorist for his deportation actions, yet Obama had deported more.
Scott Jennings wrote an article that says it well. Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize having authorized more drone strikes that Bush in his entire administration. We wont even go into the case of the cages that Obama had built that Trump was blamed for.
I say it repeatedly I feel like here. I do not agree with everything that Trump does. Do I feel there will be repercussions for his action against Iran? Yes, I do. By definition, Soleimani was a terrorist and was responsible for the deaths of many Americans. To label Trump a terrorist, you would have to label Obama the same.
But the Democrats seem to have moved along from the Obama years. Obama seems to be a stain on their agenda. They want to be more radical. His leftist agenda was simply not enough. So the only way to do move along is to continue to paint Trump as a radical terrorist.
Look at the information. Look at the definition. Trump is not a terrorist. A bully perhaps, but far from a terrorist. Obama sent out far more strikes and is responsible for many more deaths. If you want to label Trump a terrorist, you must first label Obama as one. The Democrats will never do that.
