Obama Claims Global Warming Causes Terrorism

President Obama has shown that he will manipulate the facts any way he can to advance his agenda, but he may have reached an all-time low. At the recent graduation of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, graduates were forced to endure a commencement address by President Obama in which he tried to link Islamic terrorism to “climate change.” Although he admitted that climate change does not cause global conflict, he subsequently said that climate change was to blame for violent conflict in Nigeria and Syria.

Even for Obama, it’s totally ridiculous to claim that young girls and women are being raped and forced into slavery because religious fanatics cannot grow crops on arid land. Marie Harf, a State Department spokeswoman, recently claimed that a lack of jobs is what turns people into terrorists. Both of them completely miss the point. If "climate change" causes terrorism, how does the president explain violent jihadism dating centuries back to the time of Muhammad? If unemployment causes terrorism, millions of jobless Americans would be taking up arms. Clearly, there must be another answer.

Islamic extremism is a natural result of the influence of Islam, a religion that has always produced extremists. You do not see extremism coming out of the Judeo-Christian foundation that America has always had. Left-wing bureaucrats like Obama love to reach for just about anything to excuse the despicable acts of Islamic terrorism around the globe. Obama has even tried to justify anti-American rallies in Middle Eastern countries. This latest attempt to blame Islamic extremism on the myth of global warming is further proof of how far Obama will go to indoctrinate the American people with his own extreme ideas. The Coast Guard Academy graduates deserved better from their commander-in-chief.
