Obama official who implemented Barack Obama’s awful “Countering Violent Extremism” policy at the Department of Homeland Security finally resigned. He was anticipating General Kelly firing him.
George Selim headed the now collapsed CVE program.
The CVE tried to give federal support and legal autonomy to Islamic political groups. They offered this if the groups redirected the wave of immigrants away from Islamic militancy and jihad. Kelly will make a new, successful anti-jihad strategy.
“On Friday [July 28], Secretary Kelly accepted the resignation of George Selim, a dedicated career professional who served at DHS under three presidents, beginning with President Bush in 2005,” said a statement from acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke.
George Selim’s awful support for such a stupid policy has cost him his job. General Kelly won’t be tolerating the nonsense that has put our lives endanger that was accepted under Obama.
The DHS under Obama put numerous Muslim Brotherhood members and anti-American Muslims into important positions. All the while, they keep flooding us with Muslims and turning away Christian refugees.
The federal government isn’t the best organization to intervene in the process of radicalization unless that portion of the federal government is the military and that military is dropping bombs. The only way to counter violent extremism is to kill anyone who acts in an extremist manner against the United States.
Local governments would be much more efficient if they stopped electing liberals and self-deprecating whites to the mayor positions in the cities where radicalization occurs.
The CVE plan failed, in large part, because immigrant Islamic political activists kept raising their demands in negotiations with Obama’s deputies. For example, some Islamic advocates demanded the FBI stay out of Muslim neighborhoods.
What do you think of Selim quitting? Do you think General Kelly will fix the DHS?
