Political Correctness Is Destroying Us

For years we have been living under a political correctness filter that is now endangering our lives.  I am either more sensitive to it since 9/11 or the country has fallen down further into this rabbit hole.  The events at Ft. Hood shine a light on this painful truth in America: Our political correctness is destroying us.  And this is not just the case when it comes to Islam and Jihadists, although that is the most glaring example.  Our political correctness has led us to elect a panty-waist leader who has become an apologist to the world.  We’re sorry for being prosperous and Capitalistic.  We’re sorry for being free.  This apologist attitude has left us whimpering at the door of Iran.  Iran will have the nuclear weapon in time and we will be left living under a fear that the Cold War never instilled.  At least the Soviet Union cared a bit for its people.  Jihadists and Muslim extremists – who are the norm, no PC here – do not even care about their own lives.

Political correctness has given way to a zero tolerance zoning in schools that leaves six-year-olds expelled for having Boy Scout equipment with them and teenagers with survival gear losing college prospects.  Political correctness has led us to push God out of the center square because we do not want to offend anyone.  How dare we Christians wish someone “Merry Christmas”.  Now we have winter festivals and Xmas decorations.  We take down the ten commandments and yank prayer out of school, unless you’re a Muslim.  Little old ladies are given the full pat down at airports, while dark-skinned men wearing turbans are ignored.

Political correctness keeps people from speaking their minds, which erodes our free speech.  Sometimes that free speech may hurt, but it is a fundamental right that this country is erasing.  The Fairness Doctrine seeks to make talk radio more “fair” and keep conservativism from sweeping the internet.  Political correctness keeps people from telling the truth and then sometimes it is too late.

Political correctness is a fundamental problem in this country and the Ft, Hood Massacre only shines light on that fact.  Freedom’s Wings is a no PC zone, so I say what I want and welcome others to do the same.  I have never erased a comment or edited it except for profanity or being spam.

Can We Trust Muslims In The Military?

Yesterday’s heinous attack at Ft. Hood Texas from a Muslim soldier that left 13 people dead and another 28 wounded begs the question of whether we can truly trust Muslims serving in the military.  We obviously cannot ban them because we have Freedom of Religion in this country, but can our troops function well when they have doubts about the Muslims in their midst.  This is the second high profile case of a Muslim soldier attacking his comrades in arms.  Not all Muslims are terrorists, but every terrorist has been a Muslim and indeed Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is a terrorist.  The mainstream media and his family are trying to paint him as a lonesome loner who was mistreated by fellow soldiers for his beliefs and that he was suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, but the truth will prove to be something quite different.

Already we are hearing reports that he praised homicide bombers at various websites and that he declared “Allah Akbar!” before he started murdering innocent people.  And how does someone who has never seen battle get Post Traumatic Stress?  And the theory that he was afraid to be deployed to Afghanistan rings hollow because he was going to be serving in the medical field and would never see the front lines.  But he definitely had qualms about fighting against fellow Muslims and he was against both the war in Iraq and the one in Afghanistan.  And his years of hearing horror stories about war from patients is no excuse either, otherwise we would have military psychologists everywhere taking up arms.

It is important to note that his parents are of Palestinian descent and there is much turmoil between Israel and the Palestinians in the Middle East and we are seen as being on the side of Israel although this President is trying to change that.  Whatever reason this waste of human skin had for committing his act of cowardous, the fact is that Americans need to get serious about the Muslims in our midst (we have had several cells pop up around the country) and the military needs to get serious as well.  And possibly rethink their policy of not arming our soldiers on base.
