Politifact is not really a fact-checking site; it’s just another propaganda arm of the far-Left. So if even they are saying this, the problem is acute and clear. For the Democrats, jihad terror is just not a priority. The fact that there was no mention of it whatsoever on the first day of their convention is abundant illustration of that, whatever they might say on the second or third day. They’re much more interested in climate change and pandering to their various interest groups. Meanwhile, Germany and France are on fire, and because of policies still endorsed by the Democrats and numerous influential Republicans, that fire is coming here.
“Politifact: Democrats never mentioned terrorism on Day One of DNC,” by Tyler Pager, Politico, July 26, 2016:
Republicans’ claim that Democrats did not mention terrorism or ISIL on the first night of the Democratic National Convention is correct, Politifact said Tuesday morning.
Following Monday night’s speeches, Republicans blasted the Democrats for a lack of focus on terrorism from the 61 speakers.
“Based on our searches of C-SPAN closed-captioning text, Congressional Quarterly transcripts and other video archiving services, we couldn’t find any speaker who mentioned “ISIS,” “Islamic” “terror,” “terrorist,” or “terrorism” during the first day of the convention,” Politifact wrote.
The fact-checking website did add the caveat that the Democrats still have three days to discuss terrorism at the convention and the first day of the convention was not meant to focus on foreign policy. Additionally, Hillary Clinton on Monday called for action against ISIL at a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“We need to lead other countries in stopping ISIS, Al Qaeda, and other radical jihadist groups,” she said. “We shouldn’t leave that to the rest of the world to figure out on their own. That won’t keep us safe.”
