Prominent Democrats are worried their party will be painted as soft in the fight against terror. Terrorism had hardly been discussed publicly at the Democratic National Convention — until Wednesday night’s series of national security speeches — but in private settings, fears about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's use of the issue circulated among the party’s elite. Noting polls that show Trump has a significant edge with voters on issues of national security and terrorism, Democrats worry he could defeat Hillary Clinton with the argument that the Democratic nominee and her party have been too passive in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. A major domestic terrorist attack on the homeland, or even the continued steady drumbeat of foreign beheadings and suicide bombings, could be all that Trump needs to win the presidency, many top Democrats fear. At a private donor breakfast on Wednesday at the Westin hotel in downtown Philadelphia, Sens.Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) were asked by a concerned guest about how Democrats can look strong on terrorism. Both Schatz and Blumenthal expressed worries over the potency of Trump’s argument that he was tougher on terror, according to a source who attended. Schatz conceded that terrorism was not “traditional terra firma” for Democrats, while Blumenthal said Democrats needed to be alert to the fact that Republicans always demagogue them for being soft on terror, the source added. Democrats don't like Trumps argument on terror because it's based on fact, and it's something you will never hear out of the mouths of Democrats because they created this mess. Islam is a religion of conquest and will commit mass acts of violence so they can take over by causing fear. Terrorism in the Islamic world is more like a religious duty to take over nations and destroy the infidels. Trump knows these facts it's why he talks about it, and if Democrats ever mentioned Islamic terror based on facts. It would ultimately destroy the Democratic party if they ever mentioned any truths of radical Islam. Democrats always fear the truth they are unwilling to say, because of the Identity politics they play with the Islamic world.
