Cruz: Obama Needs to Stop Lecturing Us on Islamophobia in Midst of Terrorism

cruz2Ted Cruz defended his proposal to have law enforcement patrol Muslim neighborhoods today by going after President Obama for being too politically correct to address the threat of Islamic terrorism in any kind of meaningful way, like after Brussels.

“After every one of these attacks,” Cruz said, “the presdient does a national TV conference where he refuses to say the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ Instead he lectures Americans on Islamophobia. Well, enough is enough.”

He said that all he wants is “proactive law enforcement” in Muslim communities and tightening on immigration so that the United States does not repeat Europe’s mistakes.

Cruz made it clear that he considers “Islamism,” not the religion of Islam itself, to be an enemy of the United States.
