President Obama and Hillary Clinton should use the phrase "Islamic terrorism".

First, it's clearly accurate in this case. Second, if they don't they will be roundly ridiculed and attacked for "political correctness" by Trump and his friends all the way to November.

5. One is international. One isn't.

 

Although I agree with the overarching point, it should be called out.

11. Yes, but the Pope isn't calling for mass murder from the safety of the vatican.

 

ISIS is.

12. Allow me to explain.

Christians refusing to bake cakes = Christian Terrorism

Islamic extremists killing gays = {blame everyone and anything other than Islamic extremists}

Did I get that right?

2. Seems more like anti-gay terrorism in this case (whether the guy invoked Isis or not).

Buts, assuming the killer had been from the Christian fringe right, should we call it Christian terrorism?

6. It's Islamic terrorism, a hate-crime, and ...

another example of our reckless out-of-control gun culture - all wrapped up into one horrific event.

8. I agree but do not fail

to note that the GOP-NRA blocked a bill to stop suspected terrorists from having easy access to firearms.

13. I would call it Islamist terrorism.

Islamism is not the same thing as Islam.

14. Right

Terrorism is a political action. Islamism is a political position. Islam is not; "Islamic terrorism" is an error of grammar -- something I would expect from Trump, but not on DU.

15. They are adults and can use whatever words they choose.

Plus there are reasons that people in actual power don't use that phrase - recruitment.
