How many more people have to die needlessly in the name of political correctness? Seriously. I’ve asked this before, will doubtless ask it again, but how. many. innocent. people do we really need to sacrifice on the altar of white guilt and to the gods at the NAACP and the ACLU? How many? Apparently the nearly 3,000 lost on 9/11 weren’t enough, the thousands of soldiers since then weren’t enough, the 13 unarmed soldiers at Fort Hood are not enough. When will there be “enough” innocent blood spilled that we can finally start investigating Muslims (particularly Muslim men) who are open about their terrorist sympathies and who sing the praises of Muslim terrorists?
Yesterday’s tragedy is, to me, yet another “sign” that this society has gone off the rails when it comes to catering to the whims of the left. This shooter, this guy who somehow managed to survive his blood thirsty and unforgivable rampage at Fort Hood, was a Muslim and he was very vocal about his position on our role in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan: we are “the aggressor,” Muslim terrorists who kill U. S. soldiers are heroes for standing up for their cause–just as an American soldier is considered to be when he throws himself on a grenade to save his unit, and he claimed to be “from” Jordan even though he was born in the U.S. (the link is to CNN, and of course they don’t actually “get” that reference, so you’ll have to watch the video to hear the interpreter explain how the shooter claimed to be “from” Jordan. The article, being from CNN after all, twists that to say “his parents are believed to be from Jordan.” Obviously a huge difference there, no? And one that makes my exact point, actually.). He was happy when a U. S. soldier was killed in a recruitment center in Little Rock because “this is what Muslims should do, we should stand up to the aggressor.”
I’m sorry, but what about this man doesn’t scream “I’m a Muslim sympathetic to terrorists and advocating violence against the U. S. military”? We may never know for sure why this man wasn’t kicked out of the military on his creepy extremist arse, but we do know that there were a lot of signs that this man was unstable and capable of committing the acts of violence he applauded in other Muslim extremists. Why was there no investigation into this man? Why was he allowed to wander around Fort Hood (and before that Washington D. C. where he was stationed to work at Walter Reed) celebrating American deaths in the war on terror and calling us “the aggressor.” Any Muslim, frankly, who talks like this should be investigated by the DHS. And hard. And fast. Last week, even. You know why? Because Muslims have declared war on the U. S. They have done so openly and in both word and deed. We know who wants to do us harm. There is no lack of clarity, no gee, well, maybe it’s not just Muslim extremists, maybe it’s little old ladies clutching their rosaries as they wait to board planes.
But who is stopped, searched, and sometimes even questioned at airports? You got it, little old ladies from middle America who are clutching their rosaries (I’ve personally witnessed this) or sporting tee-shirts that say, “My granddaughter went to Disney World and all I got was this lousy tee-shirt” (I’ve also witnessed this, except it was a white elderly couple, both wearing said tee-shirt). Who gets ushered through with great and benevolent fanfare? Yep. Muslim men (yep, I’ve witnessed this, too; well, sans fanfare). Sometimes with one-way tickets they bought in cash. But hey, at least we aren’t “profiling” people. Aren’t we grand?
Why the hell aren’t we profiling people? We waste time, money, and valuable resources with “random” checks rather than looking closely at people who, like yesterday’s mass murderer, practically scream “I’m about to shoot a bunch of people in the name of Allah and jihad.” How does this make sense? In what screwed up way does this even come close to a definition of decent homeland security? If a detective knows that the suspect in a crime is a white, middle-aged male why on earth would they stop, question, or otherwise pursue anyone who is not a white, middle-aged male? That makes zero sense. Right?
The left, though, they say that profiling is wrong. That it is racist (gee, isn’t everything they don’t like?). That it may lead to violence against the innocent. Well, guess what, lefty loons, NOT profiling is dangerous. And it absolutely, one hundred percent leads to violence against the innocent. We know that beyond a shadow of a doubt. Furthermore, the danger of vigilante “justice” and to Muslim-Americans who do not pose a threat to our security from random Americans would be far minimized if they felt that the authorities were actually doing their job and not bowing to political pressure. If Bubba (or whomever the left are so fearful of) felt that the police or DHS (etc.) were actually investigating suspicious Muslim men in this country, he’d be far less likely to commit violence against the nearest swarthy-skinned person–such attacks are rare, but they do happen. And that is based not only in fear but in the sense that if they don’t do something no one else will. As is, everyone knows that you can be living right next door to a terrorist and the chances of him being caught before he does great harm are slim to none. Ooooh, we can’t possibly watch that house full of five young Muslim males with shady income sources and who are taking flying lessons at the local dust-cropping airstrip. That would be wrong. Instead, we’re going to focus on Tea Party goers and Americans who oppose big government, those are the real threat to national security (funny how it’s okay to profile white patriots who pay their taxes, huh?).
So I say, let’s quit kow-towing to the radicals who seem to think that freedom is only applicable to those who want to do us harm and that those who wish us ill are the only ones with rights that need protecting. I am not willing to die in the name of misplaced, indulgent, myopic ideology. I’m just not. And I doubt that anyone who was mowed down in that recruitment center were, either. But they did. And they were.
