The Left's Destruction of Reason; Lessons Yet To Be Learned From Fort Hood

A recent Fox poll found that 49 percent of respondents called the massacre at Fort Hood a "killing spree" with 44 percent choosing "an act of terrorism" as a more accurate description. Obama, when finally getting around to the subject, said that "no faith justifies" the murderous acts of that day. No faith justifies? Does Islam ring a bell? A radicalized interpretation of that faith, granted, but say it is 1%, that gives us 12 million Muslim fanatics worldwide that believe that America is the great Satan and must be destroyed.* Obama urged Congress to hold off on any Ft. Hood probe, and to "resist the temptation to turn this tragic event into the political theater."

First of all it was not a tragic event, it was a terrorist act. How can I say this? Well, let's look at the facts; the facts that the media and our government have already swept under the political correctness rug:
-The suspect's frequent correspondence with radical Yemeni Muslim cleric Anwar al-Aulaqi, who had alleged ties with al Qaeda.
-The suspect's shouts of “Allah Akbar” as he gunned down unarmed innocents.
-The documented hate speech of the suspect, when referring to non-Muslims as infidels that should have their throats cut, with boiling oil poured down their throats.
-Oh, and the handy little cards he had printed up, identifying himself as a “Solider of Allah.”

What causes a society to purposely put blinders on to a deadly danger that has murdered thousands of Americans and has vowed to do so again? What causes a society to irrationally fear the possibility of offending it's enemy simply by naming it? I will tell you; a society that has allowed itself to become so brainwashed by political correctness that it behaves in a suicidal, self-loathing manner. With belief in God being constantly eroded by those same forces on the left, all perception of what is right and wrong; good and evil are being dismissed and summarily overruled. We have become a society that opts not to see the world as it truly is, one that no longer chooses to see present dangers for what they really are; we have now reached a point where we no longer will allow ourselves to see our enemies nor what threatens us.

A society such as this, that continues down this road, is doomed to destruction. Wake up America; your enemy has you in it's sights. Your enemy is here.

* In the US, that translates to 20,000 that are thought to be radicalized with estimates in our armed forces, the total is difficult to pin down, ranging from 4,000 to 12,000 and possible radicals roughly 1% of that.
