Obama: “Republican Base Had Been Fed This Notion That Islam Is Inherently Violent”

Obama:  “We got here in part because the Republican base had been fed this notion that Islam is inherently violent, that this is who these folks are. And if you’ve been hearing that a lot, and then somebody shows up on the scene and says, well, the logical conclusion to civilizational conflict is we try to make sure that we’re not destroyed internally by this foreign civilization, that’s what you get.”

Pamela Geller reports The Republican base or jihadis?
The Republican base or ISIS?
The Republican base or Hamas or Muslim Brotherhood or al Qaeda or Boko Haram or al Shabaab …. must I go on?
The Republican base or the Quran?

Saying the Republican Base had been fed this notion that Islam is inherently violent is like saying women have been fed this notion that rape is inherently violent.

Like Aristotle said, A is A. It is what it is.

There is no lie too big for our sharia chieftain.

Obama: “Republican Base had been Fed this Notion that Islam is Inherently Violent” (thanks to Daniel Greenfield):

Oh my goodness.

“We got here in part because the Republican base had been fed this notion that Islam is inherently violent, that this is who these folks are. And if you’ve been hearing that a lot, and then somebody shows up on the scene and says, well, the logical conclusion to civilizational conflict is we try to make sure that we’re not destroyed internally by this foreign civilization, that’s what you get.”

Who could have fed the “Republican base” this ahistorical and utterly false notion that Islam is violent? Was it history? Current events? Theology?

Anyway Obama is here to clear this up right now.
