Obama Wants To Ban Term "Islamic Extremism"

U.S. President Barack Obama

U.S. President Barack Obama wants the government to stop using the term "Islamic Extremism." Obama is seeking to have it scrubbed from official documents. He most likely wants the public to do the same, as that is how he operates.

You know what. Obama is right. We should not call it "Islamic Extremism." How about "Muslim Extremism" instead.

He also wants the word "Jihad" banned. Maybe he should write an email to terrorists, hit send to all and tell them stop using the term first. At the end of the day, innocent people are violently being killed over twisted, extremist ideology. Employing semantics is not going to fix that.
