Former Governor and Presidential candidate Mitt Romney says that President Barack Obama is out of touch on global issues. Conventional wisdom would indicate that Governor Romney is correct about President Obama’s response to the Islamic State. Claiming that President Obama is out of touch on global issues might be true, but it is a narrow view of President Obama’s foreign policy blunders.
When President Obama was first elected, he globetrotted all around the world on an apology tour to apologize to the Muslim world for America’s alleged injustices against them. Since then, and during President Obama’s presidency, persecution and mass murder of Christians at the hands of radical Muslim Jihadists has been on the rise. The latest fascist antics and attacks by the Islamic State are the most recent attacks against Christians.
How did President Obama respond to the Islamic State’s genocide of Christians? There was no real response of solidarity with the Christians from President Obama. When the genocide of Christians escalated, eventually leading to the beheading of two American journalists, the pressure has become too great to ignore. However, President Obama gives a brief pro-Christian statement, but focuses his entire responses to stand in solidarity with the so-called “moderate” Muslims.
When President Obama views so-called “moderate” Muslims as the victims of the Islamic State, even though it is Christians who are primarily targeted and killed, conventional wisdom is correct to assert that President Obama is out of touch on global issues. However, he is not just out of touch with the global threats to liberty and America around the world. He has a secular worldview in a post-Christian America. President Obama equates Christianity and Western Capitalism with what he views as American imperialism.
Do you believe President Obama is out of touch on global issues, or are his foreign policy blunders a part of something much more? Share your thoughts in the comment section!
