The Greatest Threat
Political correctness, and more broadly, liberalism, are the greatest threats to the U.S. and Western Civilization. Nowhere is this more clear than in the Ft. Hood shooting and the news that the Army report aimed at preventing such occurrences in the future makes no mention of Nidal Hasan’s motives or of the role radical Islam played.
“The report demonstrates that we are unwilling to identify and confront the real enemy of political Islam,” a former colleague of Hasan told Time.
Incredible. Nine years after 9/11, months after the Ft. Hood massacre and weeks after the Christmas Day bombing attempt in Detroit, we continue to willingly cover our eyes to the situation and deny that our enemy is really our enemy–and all in the name of political correctness. Oh no, we don’t want to offend the Muslims. The hardened jihadists plotting to destroy this country must be belly laughing with satisfaction when they read how we continue to disarm ourselves to assuage our guilt and avoid being insensitive.
And of course, we have a president who encourages this soft approach. Yes, let’s gloss over reality and avoid calling a spade a spade. Maybe then they’ll love us. Unfortunately, though, our previous president had a tendency toward the politically correct as well, making sure everyone understood that Islam is a “religion of peace” and that we weren’t at war with it. Well, our Islamic enemies certainly think they’re at war with us. Perhaps it’s time we joined the game. You can’t win what you refuse to believe you’re playing. Remember, empires fall from within.
