Politically correct liberals are sick puppies. In their view the US is evil because it developed the most affluent country in the world using free enterprise instead of a Marxist program controlled by intellectuals who have no idea of what makes a society of efficient hard working individuals.

Look, here's the deal. Although the liberals are afraid of Islam and don't like it, they think it will be of use to them in the future, as it has been in the past. Think footsoldiers. Of course, when one (liberals) plays with untamed animals, one is likely to get mauled, and this will happen sooner or later. I just hope I'm around to see it.

This has nought to do with liberals, or, for that matter, conservatives. It has to do with the American/Western desire for tolerance, mutual respect, fair play and avoiding prejudgment based on a person's belief system. Unfortunately, when a person's belief system is in direct conflict with those same Western values, we stupidly refuse to acknowledge that sometimes there are beliefs - and, more importantly, behaviors - that we should not tolerate.

I'm growing sick of the Western willingness to put up with what is clearly a nihilistic, hate-filled culture. I still remember the (quickly suppressed) videos of Palestinian Arabs handing out candy to the kiddies on 9/11... and our country bending over backwards to show its tolerance for our Muslim population. But at what point do we say "Enough!" and demand that these people embrace our Western values wholeheartedly - or get the hell out?

If the "moderate" Muslims (I'm sure they exist) don't start doing more than offering (extremely minimal) lip service... if they don't extirpate the extremists in their midst... then they are, of course, not really "moderate" at all... and their presence in the West should not be countenanced. I'm sure there's plenty of room in Saudi Arabia's Empty Quarter to accommodate them.

(Sorry about the rant.)

Elisson - beautifully said and exactly what I've been thinking for years.

Elisson.
Well said; I have only one minor quibble. You said you are getting tired of Western willingness to put up with a nihilistic, hate filled culture - and then you apologized for you not being willing to put up with that.
Like you, I am tired of our so-called leaders being unwilling or unable to say what is obvious to anyone with a sentient brain. But I am no longer apologizing for being angry about it.

Carol, I was not apologizing for not being willing to put up with... etc., etc. I was apologizing only for my going off on an extended rant in Sissy's comments. I do not wish to abuse the graciousness of our host; that's all.

Einstein once said that the definition of insanity was doing the same things repeatedly and expecting different results. Our leaders are, by that definition, insane. We keep sucking up to people and entire cultures who consistently repay kindness with hate, cooperation with destruction, opportunity with incitement. When are we going to knock it off and stop acting crazy?

Whoops - another rant!

Elisson: Keep those rants coming. I can never get enough. : )

In the Sunday Telegraph (apparently the British still know how to practice investigative journalism): Fort Hood shooting: Texas army killer linked to Sept 11 terrorists

and

Fort Hood gunman had told US military colleagues that infidels should have their throats cut
Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the gunman who killed 13 at America's Fort Hood military base, once gave a lecture to other doctors in which he said non-believers should be beheaded and have boiling oil poured down their throats.

Elisson - spoken brilliantly but what can one expect from someone intelligent enough to be in thrall to cats!? Since the atrocity at Ft. Hood I have been seething with anger - as much for our President's tepid response to the murder of some of HIS troops. I think the pregnant woman's death is the most upsetting to me; as someone who never was able to have children, that rankles in an emotional fashion, but in all other respects, I am angry on a visceral level that is just unlike me (I hope). Why is it that only some of us can see what is going on while the rest of our fellow citizens have their heads inconveniently buried in a big sandpile!?

Thank God I had Sam the Wonder Cat to cool my jets over the weekend. He's always entertaining and good for many, many laughs!

Yup, it was Political Correctness that is at fault. Hasan may as well of had "potential terrorist" tattooed on his forehead, but everyone was intimidated into silence.

And who can blame them? Speak out and you're labeled a bigot, racist, intolerant, etc.

Worst, given the reaction by Obama and General Casey, the PC intimidation regime will continue, so if there are more Major Hasans out there we'll never find out until it's too late.
