Terrorism Thrives on Political Correctness

Friday, 17 June 2016 10:40 AM Current | Bio | Archive

If you see something, say something. But first, shut your Islamophobic mouth.

Such mixed signals confuse Americans. Officials urge citizens to maintain eternal vigilance against radical Islamic terrorism. Yet soft-headed liberals like Obama and Hillary Clinton consider it bigoted to put “Muslim” and “extremism” in the same sentence.

This contorted effort to keep Muslims comfortable ironically yields the ultimate discomfort: death by jihad. This week’s perpetrator was ISIS devotee Omar Saddiqui Mateen.

Toxic political correctness cows Americans into a policy of “See something, say nothing,” as former counterterrorist Philip Haney titled his new book.

The results are deadly.
  • Mateen’s shooting spree did not surprise Daniel Gilroy, a former Fort Pierce police officer who worked with Mateen at G4S Security. “This guy was unhinged and unstable,” Gilroy said. “He talked of killing people.” According to Florida Today, “Gilroy said he complained to his employer several times, but it did nothing because he was Muslim.” On Sunday morning, Mateen massacred 49 and injured 53 at Pulse, an Orlando gay nightspot.
  • A Redlands, Calif., neighbor of Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik saw the couple working and receiving packages late at night in their garage. Suspicious, the neighbor considered calling cops. However, her friend Aaron Elswick told KTLA-TV, “She didn’t want to do any kind of racial profiling.”ISIS killers Farook and Malik gunned down an office Christmas party in San Bernardino last Dec. 2. They murdered 14 and wounded 22.
  • “Nidal Malik Hasan struck some of his classmates as a ‘ticking time bomb‘ whose strange personality telegraphed trouble long before he allegedly killed 13 people at Fort Hood,” wrote Time magazine’s Mark Thompson. These students, whom Thompson quoted anonymously, “say they’re angry that what they view as political correctness led their superiors to ignore the warning signs.”
  • Nidal said that Shariah trumped the U.S. Constitution. During oral presentations, “he would be standing there in uniform pledging allegiance to the Koran,” one classmate recalls. “He’d be full of psychobabble about how the persecution of Muslims justifies suicide bombers." "I was astounded and went to multiple faculty and asked why he was even in the Army,” one officer said. “Political correctness squelched any opportunity to confront him.” Nidal opened fire in November 2009, slaying 13 and hurting 32.
  • Former U.S. Airways ticket agent Michael Tuohey recalls handling two passengers almost 15 years ago at Maine’s Portland International Jetport. Abdul Aziz Alomari and Mohamed Atta were flying to Boston Logan Airport.“I looked in [Atta’s] eyes, and he just looked angry. I just got an uncomfortable feeling,” Tuohey told the Portland Press Herald‘s David Hench. “I said to myself, ‘If this guy doesn’t look like an Arab terrorist, then nothing does.’ Then I gave myself a mental slap, because in this day and age, it’s not nice to say things like this,” Tuohey added. These passengers’ fares also seemed odd. “They had first-class, one-way tickets - $2,500 tickets,” Tuohey noticed. “Very unusual.” Tuohey saw something and said nothing. The Sept. 11 attacks killed 2,977 and wounded some 6,000.
Obama fortified this problem with his petulant outburst on Tuesday.

“And if we fall into the trap of painting all Muslims with a broad brush and imply that we are at war with an entire religion,” Obama said, “then we’re doing the terrorists’ work for them.”

How absurd.

Denouncing the Russian Mafia is no insult to Russian non-Mafiosi. Decrying white supremacists should offend very few white people outside the KKK. Likewise, condemning radical Islamic terrorists should not offend mainstream Islamic non-terrorists.

Obama never listens. He never learns. And he never remembers. Mr. Hope has changed. He’s now hopeless. Only his departure and Hillary’s defeat will break PC’s stranglehold on the war on radical Islamic terrorism.
