Distorting the View of an Evil Event
Political correctness has become the chador, the burqa, of our mainstream media. Like an Afghani woman who peers at the world through a veil, our media gives us a distorted, hazy view of events.
The Fort Hood massacre, perpetrated by Nidal Hasan, a home-grown jihadist, is whitewashed. We are to feel sorry for him because the war stories he listened to made him commit a premeditated murderous rampage.
Rachel Maddow gave that answer the evening of the event. Couple that with Dr. Phil's deep psychological analysis, we understand why Hasan destroyed lives on an Army base. Hasan, the soldier of Allah, was created by us -- America's politics. We are to blame. As Obama has indicated, America is always to blame.
Let us bow our heads.
Political correctness is a way of distorting the truth; it is the coward's diplomacy. Now we "nuance" actions, words and lifestyles. If we see an act of evil created by a jihadist theology, we are to select delicate, nonoffensive words. We must understand the tremendous psychological underpinning; therefore, Hasan is merely a deeply troubled man. We cannot blame him, for Islam is the religion of peace and submission.
As always, we have the moderate Muslims marching in the streets to take back their religion from the fringe elements. Aren't we all going to that parade?
