Dr. Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to President Trump, appeared on MSNBC and took the opportunity to hit them with a truth bomb: there is no such thing as a “lone wolf.”
The Blaze reports:
Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, schooled a pair of MSNBC hosts Tuesday during a tense back-and-forth about radical Islamic terrorism.
Gorka and the MSNBC hosts were discussing the recent aggression from North Korea and terrorism in general. The hosts, Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle, asked Gorka how the Trump administration plans to deal with the growing threat of less-organized attacks from radical militants, which have plagued Western Europe for the last two years.
Gorka said that first and foremost, the Trump administration will combat the growing threat by correctly diagnosing the problem and calling it what it is: radical Islamic terrorism.
. . . . The MSNBC hosts went on to reiterate their original question: What will the Trump administration do about combating “lone wolf” attackers?
Gorka responded with an answer that left the MSNBC anchors speechless.
“There’s no such thing as a lone wolf. You do know that? That was a phrase invented by the last administration to make Americans stupid,” Gorka said. “There has never been a serious attack or a serious plot that was unconnected from ISIS or Al-Qaeda, at least through the ideology and the TTPs, the tactics, the training, the techniques, and the procedures that they supply through the internet. Never happened. It’s bogus. This is an international global threat.
“What we have to do now is not only destroy organizations like ISIS, which we are doing — they will be annihilated — but also delegitimize the ideology so it will become as heinous and as rejected as fascism and nazism is today. That black flag of ISIS has to be globally rejected like the swastika, and we will work with our Muslim partners to overtly and covertly delegitimize their message,” he said. “That’s the definition of victory. When people don’t want to become jihadis, that’s when we will have won.”
