Report: Obama Will Invoke Charlie Hebdo Victims at SOTU- Democrats Will Hold Up Pencils
But, he won’t say Islamic extremism.
That would be Islamophobic.
From Rep. Gwen Moore’s office:
Obama will invoke Charlie Hebdo victims tonight in his State of the Union Address tonight.
But he won’t say Islamic terrorism.
Democrats will hold up pencils in symbolism of support of the Charlie Hebdo reporters who were slaughtered.

For the record…
In September 2012 the Obama White House berated Charlie Hebdo for publishing the Mohammad cartoons.
