Sen. Jeff Sessions blasted Barack Obama for not using the term “radical Islam” Thursday, arguing that “political correctness” and the “refusal to address the reality of the threat” impacts the ability to defend America.
In an interview on Fox News’s “On The Record with Greta Van Susteren,” Sessions said, “I think it is a legitimate concern that the president is not seemingly taking this seriously enough. This whole idea, the refusal to address the reality of the threat we face does impact our ability to defend America and to help the whole world see the nature of the threat we face which is very real.”
“I guess it arises out of political correctness where you just don’t want to say anything bad about anybody or raise any questions. But that kind of intimidation of free speech is dangerous it makes it harder to reach accommodations and to understand differences and fix the dangerous problems like we face today.”
