The Islamists continue with their version of winning.
For years we have endured the growing personal invasions into our privacy in our communications and our travels. The latter compounded by the rampant moronity of overpaid security guards with “authoritah” feeling up little old ladies, the handicapped, and little kids to avoid the appearance of racial or ethnic ‘bias.’
Because we are enlightened, and ‘compassionate.’ And now Michigan, somehow appears to recognize it is at risk, missing that particular ‘irony’ even while it embraces the potential for more of the same.
In 2007, Congressman Pete Hoekstra told me that the Bush administration was going to call terrorist attacks “Man-Made disasters” going forward.
It was a report of incredulity. It was the first time I became aware that our federal government was not at all interested in fighting a ‘holy war,’ and was actually more concerned that any reference to Islam in a negative way would incite more violence and hostility from Muslims as such.
It was at that point, I knew we had lost a major battle in the fight against radical Islam.
Words matter, as other popular pundits note. The failure to recognize one’s enemy can only guarantee that enemy remains invisible until it is too late. This administration has made no attempt to reverse that policy, and has in-fact embraced it to the point that Islam Jihad has occurred on our soil several times since 2008.
No change would be expected under a 2nd Clinton administration either. Of this we can be certain. Hillary’s European style pandering would likely give us more Charlie Hebdo, or Paris theater style attacks. As it is, she is calling out for more refugee settlement of radicalized Muslims in the US and IN MICHIGAN, a position that the Obama administration has been obliging.
This speech by Donald Trump should remind folks that he is not afraid to call out an evil by its name.
