Liberals inability to Deal: Stop blaming Orlando shooting on everything but radical Islam

Since the Orlando shootings, Liberals have been quick to call it a hate crime and demand more gun control. 
Neither view has anything to do with what happened at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando Florida.  New York Post  columnist Michael Goodwin has written an excellent piece bringing the kind of clarity that neither Barack Obama nor Hillary Clinton seem capable of.     

As the body count and horrific details of the Orlando slaughter became clear, a prominent businessman said to me with a tone of resignation, “Well, I guess Donald Trump just won the election.” 

Not yet, but events definitely have a vote, and Orlando was an earthquake-sized event that is rocking the presidential race. Already, it has forced Hillary Clinton to blink.
Hours after she initially hid behind politically correct codes of denouncing undifferentiated “hate” and demanding more gun control, Clinton felt the earth shift and did a fast about-face. 

OK, she grudgingly admitted on CNN Monday, “whether you call it radical jihadism or radical Islamism, I’m happy to say either.” She later warned about the threat of “radical jihadists” while insisting, “Today is not a day for politics.”

Right, it takes the murder of 49 innocent Americans for the Democratic Party’s presidential standard-bearer to confess the obvious, and she claims it has nothing to do with “politics.” She lies even when it’s not necessary.

Most important, Clinton is still stuck with the failed policies of Barack Obama. The president’s refusal to say the words “Islamic terrorism” is outrageous, but it’s not a mere verbal tic.
