When political correctness reaches a point where you can no longer tell the truth about open terrorist attacks happening on American soil, then something needs to change.
Joe Biden appeared at a community-service public relations event on Sunday. He addressed reporters, calling the Saturday synagogue hostage attack as an “act of terror,” but failed to condemn the ideology which fueled the attack.

” This was an act of terror. This was an act of terror, and not only was — related to someone who had been arrested, I might add, fifteen years ago and been in jail for ten years … they did just a great job.”
Biden voiced his thanks for the professionalism displayed by the FBI and other officials as they managed the situation and then began their full investigation.
Biden went on to take questions from the gathered reporters, who asked how the gunman — who claimed to be the brother of Aafia “Lady of al Qaeda” Siddiqui and demanded her release — had been able to purchase the weapons he used.
“Allegedly the assertion was he got the weapons on the street.”
Biden pivoted briefly to complain about a lack of focus on the number of guns being bought and sold in the United States, noting that it was impossible to stop person-to-person black market sales and seeming to suggest that if fewer Americans were permitted to buy their firearms legally, there would also be fewer guns on the street for criminals to buy.
“Except that there’s so many guns that have been sold of late, it’s just ridiculous. And it’s because of the failure of us to focus as hard as we should and as consistent as we should on gun purchases, gun sales, ghost guns, and a whole range of things that I’m trying to do.”
Biden concluded by saying that he did not have any updates on the hostage-taker’s motivation or why that particular synagogue may have bee targeted, promising to provide more information at the press conference he had planned for later in the week.
