Is Trump Moving To Focus Counter-Terrorism Solely On Islamists?

As San Fransisco looks to do away with cooperating with the FBI on counter terrorism programs, ones which were fine during the Obama years (oh, and let’s not forget the rioting, arson, and violence because someone wanted to speak), the Trump administration is supposedly going a different direction, per Reuters

Exclusive: Trump to focus counter-extremism program solely on Islam – sources

The Trump administration wants to revamp and rename a U.S. government program designed to counter all violent ideologies so that it focuses solely on Islamist extremism, five people briefed on the matter told Reuters.

The program, “Countering Violent Extremism,” or CVE, would be changed to “Countering Islamic Extremism” or “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism,” the sources said, and would no longer target groups such as white supremacists who have also carried out bombings and shootings in the United States.

Such a change would reflect Trump’s election campaign rhetoric and criticism of former President Barack Obama for being weak in the fight against Islamic State and for refusing to use the phrase “radical Islam” in describing it. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for attacks on civilians in several countries.

I actually disagree with this a little. The focus shouldn’t be solely on radical Islam, because there are other domestic threats from non-Islamist groups and individuals, including both left and right leaning groups. But, mostly leftists. That said, we have federal and state governmental units that handle the non-Islamist groups, so, perhaps there needs to be a strong focus on radical Islam. As more and more are radicalized via the Internet, in mosques and Islamic schools, their friends, etc, those some people can easily jump into violent attacks.

It’s also long past due to name the danger. The Trump administration should go to great pains to note that there is a difference between Muslims and Islamists, much as most anti-jihad bloggers have done. Try and separate the two, making sure people understand that the extremists are the issue.

    Very true…the leftist, communist, socialist bomb throwers and rioters need to be watched very carefully also.

  2. Jeffery says:

    Just the other day a right-wing, white supremacist, trump supporter walked into a mosque and killed 6 and wounded 8 innocent Muslims, because he hated Muslims.

      So does the little guy have a point?

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Little guy didn’t mention he was French-Canadian…
      However investigators haven’t come up with a motive for the shootings yet.
      Maybe little guy can set them straight.

  3. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    Moslems all over the world murder, rape and pillage in the name of allah but a couple guys fight back in Canada and that’s what you decide to fixate on? All this proves is that people are beginning to fight back.

  4. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    I don’t get it drowningpuppies, moslems murder people including their own all over the world every day but a couple whack jobs kill a few moslems and to Jeffery the whole of White Christendom is at fault.

  5. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    Like this guy drowningpuppies but lets hear about the guys in Canada who are Trump supporters if you believe in Fake News.

    Hoagie typed:

    but a couple guys fight back in Canada

    It was one guy and he wasn’t fighting back he was murdering and terrorizing innocent people.

    But I’m not surprised that you and your ilk support your own terrorists.

    It’s clear from your typings that don’t consider Muslims to be human.

    christian men rape and murder all over the globe.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      It’s clear from your typings that you’re not quite all there, little guy.
      Why is that?

  7. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    christian men rape and murder all over the globe.

    Not in the name of Christianity they don’t but moslems do in the name of Islam. If you don’t see the difference between men who do bad things that happen to be Christians and moslems who do bad things because they’re moslems you are beyond help and common sense.

    And don’t start your moral superiority shit with the “But I’m not surprised that you and your ilk support your own terrorists” crap. I never said that, you did! My “ilk” is America, what’s yours? In case you haven’t noticed the entire world is amassed in a war on terror not a war on Christianity, or Buddhism, or Hindi.

  8. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    I consider moslems to be very much humans. Only humans can be that evil and inflict that much pain, death and devastation as moslems have perpetrated on the world for over a thousand years. Look at the heads in the picture Jeffery. Look at someone’s son being displayed like garbage by your moslem buddies. They are laughing at people like you who make killing hem so easy. Look at Europe. Look at Sweden. Look at France. Is that what you want for us?

  9. Jeffery says:

    A federal judge kicked the so-called president squarely in the nutz. Yay, America!

    The State Department says previously banned travelers will be allowed to enter the United States after a federal judge in Washington state on Friday temporarily blocked enforcement of President Trump’s controversial immigration ban.

    “We have reversed the provisional revocation of visas under” Trump’s executive order, a State Department spokesman said Saturday. “Those individuals with visas that were not physically canceled may now travel if the visa is otherwise valid.”

    Department of Homeland Security personnel “will resume inspection of travelers in accordance with standard policy and procedure.”

    • gitarcarver says:

      The only problem is, Jeffery, that he had no legal right to put a stay on the entire EO as there were parts that his order say are legal.

      His order is contrary to other orders issued by other Federal judges.

      And of course, the same order issued by Obama was given a pass by the liberal press and the left, so we know this is not about anything other than hypocrisy of the left.

  10. Jeffery says:

    gc,

    Please explain how President Obama issued the same order as trumpy.

  11. Jeffery says:

    USA Today (and many others) disagree that trumpy and President Obama issued the same order.

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/01/30/fact-check-trump-refugee-policy-comparison-obama/97247418/

    The so-called president’s DOJ has challenged the order, and the 9th Circuit will weigh in. Next stop: Supreme Court. Several judges have not seen it as clear cut as you.

  12. gitarcarver says:

    The USA Today, as usual, gets it wrong.

    That’s all there is to it Jeffery.

    Other courts have weighed in on banning people who where already issued visas, but the Washington judge seems to be the only one who has issued a stay on the entire process.

    Facts are against you, Jeffery.

  13. Jeffery says:

    Then please explain how President Obama issued the same order as trumpy.

  14. david7134 says:

    USA Today?? The Hilton used to leave a free copy outside the door, but stopped when no one would even bother to pick it up.

  15. Jeffery says:

    dave,

    Can you explain how trumpy’s and President Obama’s orders re refugees were the same? No one seems to be able to. It’s almost as if they heard it on FOX and keep repeating it.

    Anyway, here’s the same conclusion from the conservative Business Insider:

    http://www.businessinsider.com/big-differences-between-trumps-immigration-ban-obamas-2011-policy-2017-2

    and Politifact rated trumpy’s claim Mostly False (which for trumpy is about as honest as he ever gets):

    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2017/jan/30/donald-trump/why-comparing-trumps-and-obamas-immigration-restri/

  16. Jeffery says:

    Rumor is that the House is holding hearings about Secretary Clinton’s role in the Bowling Green Massacre that the media covered up.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Rumor is Hillary’s a shoo-in as the next President and it will be a early night for Trump.

  17. Jeffery says:

    Certainly she will have spent more time in the White House than short timer trumpy ever will.

    Yankee Doodle Donnie is on the ropes in the House. Yes, even the extremist House is worried about what he and VP Bannon are doing to America.
