Yep, that’s what the mayor of Chicago recently said about the terrorist attack at Ford Hood. Is there no end to liberal lunacy? I suppose that bombs were responsible for the first attack on the World Trade Center (1993) and that planes were responsible for 9/11, too. And ooh, ooh, boats were responsible for the attack on the USS Cole. This is good news, though, because it makes America a wonderful place again. All those things the left hate about America weren’t OUR fault. Nuclear weapons are to blame for Hiroshima and Nagasaki and napalm was responsible for Vietnam. This probably extends to Hitler, too, right? Ovens and poisonous gas were responsible for the Holocaust? Give me a freakin’ break.
We know damn well what was responsible for the Fort Hood shootings: a maniac, fanatic Muslim bent on murdering, in cold blood, unarmed members of the United States military (the unborn baby was probably a yummy bonus for this . . . words fail me, he’s a wretched excuse for a human being), and he was bent on doing it because of his radical Muslim beliefs. We know that. It’s fact.
This has to stop. And stop fast. This liberal black and white view of the world is going to get more people killed. For all the blather on the left about “nuance,” they can’t seem to see any. If a radical fundamentalist Christian bombs an abortion clinic in an act of domestic terrorism, then all of Christianity is suspect, all signs of God and Christian faith have to be wiped off the face of the earth. All Christians, and by curious extension all conservatives, are fundamentalist nutjobs about to bomb an abortion clinic. Absurd. Equally absurd is ignoring the fact (and it is a FACT) that radical Muslims have openly declared war on Americans (and other westerners). They want us dead. That’s why they kill us whenever and wherever they get a chance. That’s not an accident. 9/11 didn’t “just happen.” Those buildings didn’t “fall down”–they were knocked down by radical Muslims bent on destroying as much as they could and killing as many Americans as they could.
Ignoring this fact, burying our head in the sand, is not the answer. This is obviously (or it should be obvious that it is) not to say that all Muslims are radical fanatics, we know they are not. That’s just as absurd as painting all Christians with a fundamentalist brush. But we do have to, we HAVE to, react to red flags, the clear warnings of imminent danger. You know, like some loser saying that Muslims need to kill American soldiers and that we are “aggressors” whose death he delights in, even if . . . no, especially if that loser is a member of the United States Army (or any branch of the military).
Being afraid to say what it is, to investigate and to act led to the murder of those 13 people (14, actually, as one of the victims was pregnant–h/t Michelle Malkin). Those people would be alive today if someone somewhere had pulled their head out of their politically correct arse and put a stop to it, booted him out of the military, given him a one-way ticket to wherever his terrorist buddies are hanging out, and washed their hands of him. Okay, that wouldn’t happen (though it would be nice if it did), but why not just kick him out of the military and keep his terrorist butt under constant and vigilant surveillance.
If you want to play games with semantics then that monster didn’t kill those people, the people who let him slide by because he’s Muslim and they were afraid to seem politically incorrect most certainly did. The guns he used . . . just weapons. He could as easily have bought a bunch of nail polish remover or whatever those whackjobs use to build home-made bombs and done the same thing. Funny how we hear all the time about terrorists killing people all over the world . . . usually without guns, but does the weapon of choice really change the fact that they are terrorists?
