Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan recently said, “The term ‘Moderate Islam’ is ugly and offensive. There is no Moderate Islam. ‘Islam is Islam.'”

What a conundrum this is? To be politically correct in America, we must maintain that Islam is a religion of peace. To have a different opinion invites the wrath of the Progressives, despite the obvious barbaric behavior of the Jihadists.

But now the Prime Minister of Turkey says that the term “Moderate Muslim” is what is offensive. This puts us in quite a quandary, doesn’t it? If what he says is true—and he should know—our political correctness is what is offensive to true Muslims. So, it’s the Progressives who are being offensive and not those of us who view Islam as violent.

Following this logic, I’m obviously the one who is being being politically correct. I’m completely justified in rebuking President Obama for his offensive statements about Muslims. When he insists Islam is a religion of peace, he is the one who insults Islam, not me. I don’t know about you, but it sure does feel good to be politically correct about this.
