Following President Obama urging Americans not to stigmatize patriotic Muslims, The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft claimed “Lame-Duck Obama Defends Islam – Blames Americans for Feeding ‘Terrorist Narrative’” and included a photo of Obama wearing traditional Muslim dress in his piece.
Hoft attacked Obama’s December 6 remarks on his administration’s approach to counterterrorism where Obama spoke about the need for American’s not to “stigmatize good, patriotic Muslims” because “that just feeds the terrorists’ narrative”:
If we stigmatize good, patriotic Muslims, that just feeds the terrorists’ narrative. It fuels the same false grievances that they use to motivate people to kill. If we act like this is a war between the United States and Islam, we're not just going to lose more Americans to terrorist attacks, but we’ll also lose sight of the very principles we claim to defend.
Hoft responded by claiming Obama “blamed Americans for feeding the terrorist narrative,” and posted an unrelated and decades-old photo of Obama in traditional Muslim attire:
Obama traveled to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida this week to address the military for the last time.
Obama defended his policies that resulted in the rise of the Islamic State.
The lame-duck president also defended Islam and blamed Americans for feeding the terrorist narrative.
The Gateway Pundit has been a go-to site for President-elect Donald Trump who has linked to the website 23 times on Twitter and used the information attack and smear President Obama.
