Tag: Orlando Shooting
Obama isn’t the only president to refuse to dub terrorists who identify as Muslim “radical Islamist.” George W. Bush made it a priority not to conflate Islam with terror for the majority of his presidency. Six days after 9/11, Bush stood outside a mosque in Washington, D.C. and proclaimed, “Islam is peace.”
On Sunday, 50 people were shot in Orlando. And my priorities came into focus. I am a one-issue voter. My issue is guns. My candidate is Hillary. As she stands to accept the nomination as the first woman ever to become the presidential candidate of a major political party in the United States, it occurs to me that Hillary is not just the best candidate despite being a woman, but because she is.
