Tomi Lahren asks how many more Americans have to die in her 'Final Thoughts' segment on Wednesday for the FOX News Channel that addressed the NYC terror attack earlier this week.
TOMI LAHREN: We've got radical Islamic terrorists ready, willing, and honored to kill us on planes, trains and automobiles with knifes, guns, explosives and trucks. And we've got federal judges, top Democrats, and bleeding heart kumbaya liberals placing Islamic sensitivity, diversity options, and political correctness over reality, American lives, and national security.
See the problem? Or do I have to spell it out for you.
For the next few days "investigators" and counter-terrorism experts will debate whether Sayfullo Saipov, the New York City vehicular jihadi, is a caliphate soldier or just "inspired by" ISIS.
Does it matter?
If he shouted "Allahu akbar," the motive and inspiration are crystal clear.
Better question is: why the heck was he here in the first place?
He wasn't airlifted in by ISIS, we let him in the front door - we rolled out the red carpet for him just like we did the 9/11 hijackers. And whose fault is that? Whose policies make that the standard? Well, take a wild guess.
Authorities say Saipov came to the United States seven years ago from Uzbekistan and Fox News has confirmed he came here under what is called the Diversity Visa Program, which offers a lottery for people from countries with few immigrants in America.
Yep, he was issued a green card by President Obama's DHS in 2010. Isn't that something?
Did you know nearly 1.8 million green cards were issued to nationals of predominantly Muslim countries from the September 11th attacks in 2001 through 2015?
Now your liberal friends might tell you this is in the spirit of inclusion, love, tolerance and diversity but here's a reality check: ISIS and the dozen-plus other radical Islamic terrorist groups exploit this diversity and blissful ignorance and use it to attack and kill Americans. Got it?
It's called "civilization jihad" and it's not just coming, it's here. It’s not Islamophobic to point out the radical problem within Islam.
It's reality, it's right in front of our faces, and it's not going anywhere so either we learn to confront it, name it and keep it the hell out or we sit back, bite our tongues, twiddle our thumbs, hold hands and pretend the evil doesn't exist. Its our choice. What's it gonna be, America? We tried the blind-eye politically correct BS for 8 years and look where it's gotten us.
Our elected officials have a duty to keep Americans safe in our own dang country. President Trump gets it and has done everything he can to put America, Americans, and our safety first.
Yet, we still have these federal judges and Democrats who prefer political correctness and feelings to our safety and national security. Enough. How many more Americans have to die before we throw away this PC garbage and understand the threat?
Those are my final thoughts. From L.A., God bless you, God bless America and take care.
