No. They really aren’t.
It should come as a surprise to no one that under Obama, the nation’s top law enforcement officer sounds more like a high school guidance counselor than a prosecutor.
The victims of a terror attack certainly deserve love and compassion but for an attorney general to say this is the best response to terror doesn’t inspire much confidence.
David Rutz of the Washington Free Beacon reported:
Lynch: Best Response to Terrorism Is Love and Compassion
Attorney General Loretta Lynch said that love and compassion are the best responses to terrorism during remarks to the media in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday.
Lynch said the Department of Justice stood in solidarity with the LGBT community “in the light” following a Muslim terrorist’s massacre of 49 people at a gay nightclub last week.
“We stand with you to say that the good in this world far outweighs the evil, that our common humanity transcends our differences, and that our most effective response to terror and to hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love,” Lynch said. “We stand with you today as we grieve together, and long after the cameras are gone, we will continue to stand with you as we grow together in commitment, in solidarity, and in equality.”
Lynch has been in the news for defending the administration’s decision to redact transcripts between law enforcement and the terrorist, Omar Mateen, during his attack.
Obama and other members of his administration have used harsher words than this when describing House Republicans but for some reason, they want to talk about love and compassion after real enemies of America attack and kill innocent civilians.

If you’re from Massachusetts, this rhetoric may sound familiar to you. In 2007, then Governor Deval Patrick, who’s cut from the same political cloth as any given member of the Obama administration, came under fire following a 9/11 memorial service for blaming the terror attack on a failure of human understanding.
The Boston Globe reported at the time:
Patrick fends off critics of 9/11 speech
Governor Deval Patrick tried yesterday to fend off criticism he has received over his Sept. 11 memorial service speech, when he said the terrorist attacks six years ago resulted in part from “a failure of human understanding.”
“Frankly, I was taught in my church that all violent attack is a failure of human understanding,” he said during an appearance on WTKK-FM radio yesterday. “The families, in the time I spent with them that day after the ceremony, were just absolutely lovely and appreciative.”
Presiding over the state’s memorial ceremonies for the first time, Patrick on Tuesday morning called the events of Sept. 11, 2001, “a mean and nasty and bitter attack on the United States.
“But it was also about the failure of human beings to understand each other and to learn to love each other,” he said. “It seems to me that lesson [of] that morning is something that we must carry with us every day.”
Lynch’s remarks are nothing new, this is a pattern among Democrats. They’re more than willing to call their Republican rivals terrorists and hostage takers, but when real terrorists show up they transform into flower children who wish we could all just get along.
Who sounds more like they’re talking about an enemy, Loretta Lynch on Orlando or Elizabeth Warren on the senate battle over gun control?
