Gwen Moore waved a pencil during Obama's State of the Union address.
Nothing sends a louder message to Islamists than waving a pencil.
From FOX News:
A Democratic congresswoman showed solidarity with the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris earlier this month after President Obama referenced the deadly terror attacks during his State of the Union address on Tuesday night.Obama talked about terrorism in his speech, but he managed to avoid saying anything about radical Islam.
Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., held up a pencil when Obama referenced the attack in his speech. The pencil has emerged as a symbol of free speech in the face of Islamist terror that seeks to quell criticism or mockery of the Prophet Muhammad, a frequent target of the satirical magazine.
"Rather than divide and intimidate us, these brazen and barbaric attacks have united the international community and prompted a global response in defense of the freedom of expression," Moore's office said in a statement. "The congresswoman believes that this is unique opportunity to join our global partners in showing our collective support and solidarity."
He said "ISIL" twice, stating that the U.S. is "stopping ISIL's advance."

This is why, for the second straight year, I didn't watch Obama and his State of the Union performance.
I don't like it when he lies to me.
