Fade To Black

Mark Steyn:

And 13 men and women and an unborn baby are dead.

Well, like they say, it’s easy to be wise after the event. I’m not so sure. These days, it’s easier to be even more stupid after the event. “Apparently, he tried to contact al-Qaida,” mused MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. “That’s not a crime to call up al-Qaida, is it? Is it? I mean, where do you stop the guy?” Interesting question: Where do you draw the line?

The truth is, we’re not prepared to draw a line even after he’s gone ahead and committed mass murder. “What happened at Fort Hood was a tragedy,” said Gen. Casey, the Army’s chief of staff, “but I believe it would be an even greater tragedy if our diversity becomes a casualty here.” A “greater tragedy” than 14 dead and dozens of wounded? Translating from the original brain-addled multicult-speak, the Army chief of staff is saying that the same fatuous prostration before marshmallow illusions that led to the “tragedy” must remain in place. If it leads to occasional mass murder, well, hopefully it can be held to what cynical British civil servants used to call, during the Northern Irish “Troubles”, “an acceptable level of violence.” Fourteen dead is evidently acceptable. A hundred and forty? Fourteen hundred? I guess we’ll find out.

As Steyn Points out, the lessons of 9/11 are fading. Go read it all.

The lessons of Fort Hood are not even being learned. The murderous Dr. Hasan is being forgiven by the media for his heinous act, his brutal murders excused by the media elite. His personal jihad not even acknowledged, but given a brand-new, never heard of medical excuse. PTSD by proxy.

There has been one case after another dismissed by the media and the authorities who are supposed to keep America safe. At some point, something will give in this country. Instead of facing the fact that these are terrorist acts and denouncing them for what they are, the media and the authorities are virtually guaranteeing a backlash when the shoe really drops goes off.

    It’s just not easy as I’m sure you know. I figure we’re at war so I’m still not prepared to throw them all face down on the ground and shoot them in the back of the head. That was the Serbs and the Germans and the Russians and the Japanese. It sucks but short of genocide those or mass expulsion as the Spanish did with the Jews and the Arab nations did with the Jews, murderous scumbag muslims are always going to be with us. Given that.

    I’m afraid that we’re all going to have to arm ourselves and get over the outmoded conventions which declaim that schools should be gunfree, and military installations should be gun free.

    I tend to think I could walk into county sheriffs office these days and apply for a concealed carry permit and just use, as justification, those damned muslim terrorists. My company doesn’t allow weapons, ever and I have much business on military installations which don’t allow weapons so it doesn’t work so much for me.

    Liberal logic: A radical muslim who murders 14 unarmed soldiers while proclaiming the superiority of his god isn’t a terrorist, but senior citizens attending Tea Party protests are terrorizing their elected representatives.

    Liberals, Progressives, Democrats, Socialists, etc., have disqualified themselves from legitimate participation in decisions involving national security. They not only refuse to defend the nation, they often work against our interests. We are a nation divided, and if we remain so, we will fall.

    No question. The American people are very patient and slow to anger but once our anger is aroused all of the politically correct BS will swept aside in a moment.

    My concern is what it will take to arouse our anger, it’s quite clear that 9/11 was not sufficient to do so. I shudder to think what kind of horror the terrorists will have to visit on us to finally awaken us to effective action.
