BILL O’REILLY (HOST): The president and the American left, bare a good measure of responsibility for not annihilating terror threats that are ongoing and have changed have our way of life. Here are the facts. The left opposes a declaration of war against radical Islamic organizations. They oppose the Patriot Act, which gives U.S. Intelligence agencies more tools to blunt attacks. The left opposes tough border security measures. In fact, some in that crew even want open borders. Many on the left would not even support Kate's law which quickly and harshly punishes violent foreigners who defy deportation and, perhaps, the greatest hypocrisy of all. Instead of demanding strong punishment for criminals and terrorists who use guns, the left stands silent and so does Mr. Obama. All they want is to obliterate the Second Amendment, which was put into the constitution to give us the right to protect ourselves from bad people. It's the guns, not the terror threat that really move the left. 

[…]

Here's what the president does not seem to understand. It is his job to lead the world against the jihad. By not even spelling out the precise danger, by using substitute wording for Islamic terrorism, he is sending a message that it's not really the fault of the Muslim world that this atrocious jihadist campaign has taken root. It's not really their fault. But here's the truth. If all the good Muslims in the world would unite against the jihad, it would be wiped out in weeks.
