He recently was a speaker before the Henry Jackson Society meeting in London and he took on the subject. For those of you who either don't know or can't remember who Henry Jackson he was a Democratic Senator in our past who was a firm believer in the defense of America. He was not a Democrat by today's standards.
In his remarks Governor Jindal made it clear that he expects Muslims of peace and good will to step up to the plate and confront those amongst them who preach hate and treachery. He went so far to say that unless this behavior is removed from their midst that Islam can't even be considered a religion, but rather a group of murderous thugs trying to destroy decent society.
It was a very well delivered speech and it took courage and resolve. After all, he was in London and Britain is one of those lands that has gone out of its way to avoid facing the reality of the situation in their midst. But Jindal, an Indian-American who is a practicing Catholic, challenged those who say they practice a religion of peace to live up to their claim. He made it clear that should things not change, those remaining silent will be judged to be complicit in the slaughter.
Could the good Governor have either listened to or read the recent speech given by Egyptian President Abdel Fatah el-Sisi in Cairo where he provided similar remarks to a large gathering of Muslim clerics? It certainly sounded like it and perhaps his remarks will serve as a lightning rod to embolden Republicans to face the truth in a deadly world. Who knows, it could even change some of the dynamics of the Presidential race in the Republican Party since Jindal is young, accomplished, a man who could devise a good solution to Obamacare while devoting additional attention to the threat we face. Events have a way of changing things quickly.
Whether or not Bobby Jindal has Presidential aspirations, he is in a good position. Only in his early 40s, he could continue to build his reputation for accomplishment for another decade before taking such a step, he could offer himself as the man to clean up Obamacare, or he could be a major campaigner for the Conservative Cause in lieu of throwing his "hat in the ring" this year.
Whatever he does, Governor Jindal by showing courage and honesty on a very serious and deadly manner has done something that America needs. He's broken the chains of political correctness and gone for the truth instead. As a devout practicing Christian he knows that only the truth will set us free.
So whether we are Louisianans, Floridians, New Yorkers or even Californians, thank you. Governor, for saying something that needed to be said. God bless you and God bless America.
