I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, radical Islamic terrorism.

That’s right President Obama, radical Islamic terrorism has taken the lives of way too many Americans.

Despite what you have repeatedly told us, ISIS and other radical Islamic groups are not “contained.”

Last Sunday, our nation witnessed the largest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Guns didn’t wake up and decide to kill our brothers and sisters in Orlando.

Rather, a perverted man who swore his allegiance to ISIS murdered in cold blood almost 50 Americans and injured over 50 others.

And, we were not the only ones to lose our own to radical Islam this week.

Our French allies watched in horror on Monday as a terrorist stabbed a police officer to death before torturing and killing his wife in front of their toddler son.

The brutal slaying was live streamed on Facebook, where the terrorist warned of further attacks in the name of ISIS.

Clearly, Mr. Obama, ISIS is thriving and radical Islam is on the rise.

They are carrying out more attacks than ever before, they are operating in more countries in ever before and they are more powerful than ever before.

Meanwhile, you continue to refuse to call them out for exactly who and what they are.

As a nation, we need to acknowledge exactly what the problem is in order to discredit the ideology behind this problem.

How can we possibly put an end to these attacks when you refuse to name and define the enemy?

When will you stop beating around the bush and confront the real issue here, Mr. Obama?

We cannot wait any longer.

What you have been doing has not been working, and we must now take the fight to ISIS and other radical groups.

We can no longer “contain” radical Islam.

It is time to eradicate them both at home and abroad.

It is time to eliminate radical Islamic terrorism.

Americans are at risk, and we need a Commander in Chief who focuses on national security instead of spending time worrying about political correctness.
