Speaking on a panel about “Obama’s assault on the military” at David Horowitz’s Restoration Weekend last month, Family Research Council executive vice president Jerry Boykin lamented that “people are not paying enough attention” to “the destruction of our military” under President Obama, adding, “thank God for ISIS” for bringing attention to it.
“I’m concerned about the fact the fact that our military will not be capable of meeting the threats of the future and America is not focused on it,” he said,“and thank God for ISIS, because if it wasn’t for ISIS, there would have been no focus, no attention.”
He went on to deride the decision to send U.S. troops to help build Ebola treatment centers in West Africa, saying, “I don’t know what glue our president has been sniffing, but if you really want to protect America, close that southern border and stop the terrorists from coming across.”
Later in the discussion, Boykin said that the “anti-Semitic” Obama is blinded to the fact that “we are going to be in the Middle East forever.”
“The idea that this president has not been anti-Semitic is absolute nonsense,” he said, lamenting that “when I discuss this with my Jewish friends, they act like I’m an idiot.”
