It's important for Trump to say it, but my parrot saying it accomplishes nothing.

I don’t know about you, but I care about this country. And I know there are a lot of people out there who want to do our citizens harm. The PC Police would rather I don’t say who they are, but I’m going to anyway. Radical Islamic terrorists. I’m so relieved we finally have a president who has the guts to say it. I just wish my pet parrot Kirby hadn’t somehow developed a sudden affinity for saying it too.

When President Trump gave his speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night, he made sure to mention he’d protect our nation from radical Islamic terrorism, and I couldn’t have been happier. You can’t defeat an enemy without identifying it in the first place, and now our military can finally know who we’re fighting, because they had no idea before. Having said that, it’s definitely not necessary for my Yellow-Naped Amazon to constantly be saying the phrase at my house, and I really wish he’d stop.

The liberal snowflakes are always so worried about offending someone. They say, “Oh, if you use that term, it demonizes all Muslims!” No it doesn’t. That’s why Trump uses the qualifier of “radical” in order to completely clear up any issue of being offensive. We’re not at war with the religion of Islam. We’re fighting radical Islamists. Kirby is definitely not part of that fight in any way though, and when he repeats the term over and over, it gets annoying.

We’re fighting radical Islamists. [My parrot] is definitely not part of that fight in any way though, and when he repeats the term over and over, it gets annoying.

President Obama and President Bush claimed the phrase created an unsafe climate for American Muslims, legitimized terrorists, and made it harder to work with our Arab allies in the fight against them. They, along with our new national security advisor, said speaking those words accomplishes nothing, but what do they know? I think it accomplishes a lot. What indisputably doesn’t accomplish anything is when Kirby screams, “Radical Islamic terrorist! Radical Islamic terrorist!” every time someone walks into my house. It’s incredibly disconcerting for guests and has gotten me in some very awkward situations.

It’s about time we had a strong, thick-skinned leader like Donald Trump who is willing to call radical Islamic terrorists what they are so we can finally defeat them, which will be easy now. His approach makes perfect sense. The more we say “radical Islam” and the more Muslim countries we ban from our country, the less people will want to attack us. I also won’t be able to live a happy life until my parrot cuts it out and learns a different phrase. I would hate to have to find a new owner for him.
