I talked to an ex-marine about the recent Fort Hood tragedy, and we both agree that Major Nadal Malik Hasan would have been court-marshaled 10 years ago for some of the comments he made while in uniform and never would have had the chance to go on his killing spree; however, today, we are too politically correct to take care of these kinds of people before it get’s to this point…
“I’ve heard him referred to as a “shooter” and a “gunman.” He’s been called “troubled” and “harassed.” We know he didn’t want to be deployed and his cousin called him a “good American.” But extremist?
“No, we can’t say that; we wouldn’t want to offend anyone.
“Are we that politically correct? I guess so. But there is no hesitation by Barack Obama’s political arm, Organizing for America, to send out an e-mail calling tea party goers extremists:
“”Across the country, members of Congress who support reform are being shouted down, physically assaulted, hung in effigy, and receiving death threats. We can’t let extremists hijack this debate, or confuse Congress about where the people stand.”
“So, that’s extremism, but killing 13 people isn’t? . . .
“Did the guy snap? I don’t know and I don’t care. He murdered Americans in cold blood in an act of bald-faced, extremist terrorism. Maybe he acted alone, then again, maybe he didn’t. What do you say we nurse him back to health, question him, have a non-government investigator look into this? Find out what happened. If he’s guilty, execute him and move on America; one less dirtbag to deal with.
. . .
“Look at what they’re doing to us. Look at how far the discussion has shifted . . .
“When did words and ideas replace fists and bullets as tools of violence? Read a little George Washington, it’s called the battlefield of ideas: If you don’t fight it there, it will be fought with guns. Don’t you see what they are creating? They are leading us to a cemetery. Society cannot survive like this.
No one at the White House or The New York Times has referred to the beat downs issued by SEIU members recently as violent or extreme.
The SEIU thugs caught on video beating down the African-American tea-party goer haven’t yet been charged . . .
“Let me be clear: The terrorist Muslim extremist murderer accused of shooting the Army recruiter dead in Arkansas last summer wasn’t even discussed in the media, let alone called an extremist . . .”
