Political Correctness Impairs Reporting on Terrorism

Like many Americans, I watched the memorial service for those killed at Fort Hood with tears in my eyes.  I have read many reports and articles on what happened and I'm frankly a little perturbed by the politically correct garbage we are being told.  I have seen the shooter referred to as an army psychiatrist in everything from CNN to the Wall Street Journal.  This was not an army psychiatrist or an over-stressed gunman, this was a TERRORIST!  

The KORAN commands Terrorism, War, and Jihad:

Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it. - Surah 2:216
(different translation: ) Prescribed for you is fighting, though it is hateful to you.

But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever you find them. - 4:89
O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Those of you who make them his friends is one of them. God does not guide an unjust people. - 5:54

When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. - 9:5

Fight those who believe neither in God nor the Last Day, nor what has been forbidden by God and his messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are People of the Book, until they pay the tribute and have been humbled. - 9:29 

Whether unarmed or well-equipped, march on and fight for the cause of Allah, with your wealth and your persons. - 9:41

Lets call it for what it is--the shooting at Ft Hood was a terrorist attack on this country.   Political correctness is making our nation ripe for this type of terrorist activity.  Don't get me wrong--I do not believe that Arabic people or those of the Muslim faith are prone to terror, rather it is those who would seek to follow the Koran literally and in its entirety that are an eminent danger to civilized people worldwide.  We should NOT silence them or their views (or anyone's for that matter), but we should be wary and not ignore danger under the guise of being politically correct.

I do want to talk about one person in particular who lost her life in the shootings.  Her name is Sgt. Amy Krueger.  She graduated from high school in 1998 (the same year I did).  She joined the military after the terror attacks of September 11, vowing to her mom that she would kill Bin Laden.  Her mom told her she could not do it alone but she said, "Watch me." (Quote from The Associated Press Nov. 6, 2009)  She captured the essense of every American heart after the fall of the Twin Towers, but she chose to do something about it.    It is tragic that she joined the military to fight terrorism and was killed in the worst attack on our soil since September 11.   She and 13 others (I am counting an unborn child) deserved better than to be shot by a coward.

What ignorance to have a devout Muslim serving in our military! What are they thinking! How many others human time-bombs are ready to go off? He wasn't there to help our country men..he was there to destroy our country men and take down as many non-muslin's as possible so he can be rewarded in heaven. The jokes on him! When he dies he'll be waking up to the fires of hell eternally.

The military should ship every single devout Muslin back to their country where they belong. They are only here to destroy and undermine us. They don't deserve the freedoms and luxury's we have here.

Wow, that's a little extreme. We do need to screen better and if necessary remove a treat. I intended for my blog to point out the dangers of political correctness when it comes to extremists. I believe that anyone regardless of religion who is willing to abide by our laws should be able to enjoy this great country.

To the anonymous gentleman or lady I would add that hell is no laughing matter. I hope that Hasan and others like him realize that a loving God would not advocate these things and turn to his son Jesus while there is time.

I didn't say every Muslin, I said devout Muslin that are living by the Koran. Why are they living among us if they hate us so?

I know, but rounding up a group of people that are U.S. citizen's just because we think they are "devout" is a hard line to cross. We really must arrest or deport those who have actually violated or show intent to violate. Otherwise the next time an abortionist is shot people will be saying the same thing about devout Christians. We do need to step it up a notch in our prosecution of the terrorists.

This was such a tragic event and to think it happened on a military base. It is sad and scary! I can't imagine the devastation and sorrow that these victims families are facing. My thoughts and prayers are with them. I believe that this horrid act of violence should be considered an act of terror upon our country and that our country's political correctness should not stand in the way.
