Deathly Political Correctness

It's too early to tell for sure, but all signs point to the fact that the Army received ample warning signs about the Ft. Hood murderer. It also seems that the signs were ignored or not passed on partly so as to avoid offending Muslim sensibilities.

This is a very dangerous path to go down. Radical Islam is not a religion of peace. The sooner we come to terms with that as a nation, the safer we will be.

    There are various motivations for publicly lying about this latest atrocity, including:

    1. PC-ness taken to the limit

    2. Sympathy for terrorism

    3. Antipathy for the US

    It's sad that one or more of these may account for statements by the American officials we pay to protect us.

    "It also seems that the signs were ignored or not passed on partly so as to avoid offending Muslim sensibilities."

    Really? I'm no bleeding heart, but where did you see that? Or are you just assuming?

    Yanky, Read the newspapers. More and more is coming out.

    I read the papers. Yes, they intercepted some messages between him and a cleric with clearly pro-terrorism writings. And yes, they decided not to do anything about that. But where's the evidence that the decision was based on a desire "to avoid offending Muslim sensibilities"? All I saw was that authorities "dropped an inquiry into the matter after deciding that the messages . . . did not suggest any threat of violence".

    That's not to say it wasn't droppped because of PC considerations. But it could just as easily have been incompetence. It wouldn't be the first time.

    Chris Mathewes asked last night "is it a crime to contact Al Qaeda" You know we have hit an all time low in this country when so called new people can ask this question. It was an act of Islamo Terrorism but these wek kneed libs are affraid of insulting Muslims so they won't call it what it is.

    Have you listened to the pathetic army chief of staff? He's more worried about not offending muslims than he is of saving his soldiers.

    MoChassid: Yes I've heard him, and I agree that the statements we've been hearing seem ill advised, but typical of what the media chooses to quote. Even worse is the focus on the murderer's personal life, as if his second-hand ptsd and other "issues" somehow explain what he did.

    But you're avoiding my original point, which was that there is no basis - at least as of now - to blame this incident on alleged fears of "offending Muslim sensibilities".

    A small point perhaps, but I think it's important. Why did the authorities decide that over 20 emails to an open terrorist sympathizer weren't a problem? What was in those emails? Who looked at them? Who decided that they weren't actionable? And why? So far, I haven't seen any real answers.

    The knee-jerk reaction to blame it on political correctness run amok avoids the even more serious possibility: that it was an outright error or incompetence.

    The #1 factor that lead to this massacre was political correctness.

    I hope the US can take a hard and honest look at their decisions and prevent the next attack from happening...profiling works.

    Get the "PC" out of their heads, and do their job.
