Tomi Lahren, a 22-year-old news anchor at One American News Network, bashed President Obama on his “half-way, half-baked, tip-toe, be-friendly-to-jihadis mentality.”
The conservative news anchor was deeply affected by the news of the deadly shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and was unimpressed by the President’s lack of immediate action towards what she called “radical Islam.”
Lahren used the “Final Thoughts” section of her show to express her feelings towards the president’s fight against terrorism.
“President Obama, if you won’t say it, I will — radical Islam. This is not workplace violence; this is not a criminal act with motives unknown — this is terrorism. What he linked to ISIS or al-Qaida or Hamas, or any of the other 15-plus offshoot terrorist groups? Does it matter? I’m sorry, but radical Islam is becoming the rule, not the exception. Yesterday’s moderate is today’s terrorist. I care that this S.O.B. killed four of our United States Marines. And I care that our commander-in-chief is more concerned with Muslim sensitivity than the honor and sacrifice made by these Marines.”
Lahren is addressomg the 24-year-old shooter Mohammad Abdulazeez, who killed four U.S. Marines and one active-duty Navy reservist in Chattanooga on Thursday. Abdulazeez acknowledged that he is a devout Muslim, but so far there is nothing connecting him to ISIS or other international terror groups.
Lahren also added, “They, the radical Islamists have brought the fight right here to the red, white, and blue, and it’s about time we bring it to them. Full force. Let’s show them what the United States of America looks like up close and personal. Show them what a B1 Bomber looks like flying overhead. Show them what they’re messing with. Put the fear of God in their desert, because clearly our lack of strategy isn’t working.”
