Speech after speech at the first night of the Democratic convention in Philadelphia on Monday, a pattern emerged. There was a blatant refusal to mention or acknowledge the biggest threat that America faces.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump took notice of the glaring lack of concern when not one of the many speakers said a single word about ISIS or radical Islamic terrorism. ISIS was “a word you didn’t hear last night at the Democratic Convention,” Trump told a group of veterans on Tuesday.
Michelle Obama made no mention of ISIS. Neither did Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Elizabeth Warren, or the 50+ other speakers. The willfull blindness and ignorance of terrorism is possibly the most frightening aspect of the Democratic platform and convention thus far.
Do you agree?
