Al Jazeero America Bans The J Word

Al-Jazeera America has put the word out to its reporters and anchors
Use of the words jihadist, Islamist or radical Islam is the journalist equivalent of a canker
The words no matter how accurate cannot be used if one wants to retain one’s job
Al-Jazeera America is trying to lead the American political correctness mob
Al Jazeera must be on the top of Obama’s viewing list
To call out radical Islam or jihadists he continues to resist
If we had a strategy on how radical Islam to contain, curtail and then destroy
The slavish adherence to the PC world in speech Obama insists we employ
Perhaps could be forgiven or passed over to get to the business of destruction at hand
To wipe fanatics like ISIS, al Qaeda and Boko Haram from the face of the land.
But Obama’s strategy cupboard is completely bare
Save for a few bombs dropped from the air
“Violent extremists” is so broad as to zero meaning or passion to convey
Not much of a motivator to those young men and women put in harm’s way
At least Al-Jazeera should as Al-Jazeero be known given the few viewers it attracts
But the President words is prime time when he speaks and millions around the world react
Millions more also when the sounds of silence of being politically correct flow from his lips
And the lack a winning strategy mean we have zero chance to escape from ISAS’s jihadist grip.
