“Based on our searches of C-SPAN closed-captioning text, Congressional Quarterly transcripts and other video archiving services, we couldn’t find any speaker who mentioned “ISIS,” “Islamic” “terror,” “terrorist,” or “terrorism” during the first day of the convention,” Politifact wrote.The fact-checking website did add the caveat that the Democrats still have three days to discuss terrorism at the convention and the first day of the convention was not meant to focus on foreign policy.Additionally, Hillary Clinton on Monday called for action against ISIL at a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina.“We need to lead other countries in stopping ISIS, Al Qaeda, and other radical jihadist groups,” she said. “We shouldn’t leave that to the rest of the world to figure out on their own. That won’t keep us safe.”
Western democracies are now frequently experiencing political events that were previously considered unthinkable, at least by their political elites.If there is a common theme to Brexit, the candidacy of Donald Trump and the rise of the Front National in France, it is that political establishments which ignore and ridicule voters’ concerns about issues including immigration and cultural cohesion are simply storing up trouble for the future.Such concerns do not go away just because politicians refuse to acknowledge them, instead erupting unpredictably.
To avoid these eruptions, those worries must be addressed sensibly and calmly by mainstream politicians..
