See No Evil

ISIS is a large, well-financed, blood-thirsty army storming unimpeded through Iraq murdering all who do not agree to their repressive demands. They have ravaged Syria, beheaded an American (with two more US captives being threatened), demanded (and received) ransoms from European countries, are in the process of taking over Iraq, and have informed us that they are intent on coming to the U.S. to kill as many as possible, having our open southern border available for easy entry.

Here’s what the Daily Kos, which sees no evil, thinks of ISIS: “You know how much threat ISIS represents to the United States? None…ISIS is a ragtag organization on the far side of the world…ISIS could no more threaten the United States than Lindsey Graham could punch God in the nose…You know what ISIS is? A bunch of politicians…They are not a threat…”

Michael J. Boyle of the NY Times tells us the beheading of American journalist James Foley has “led to a disturbing return of the moralistic language once used to describe Al Qaeda in the panicked days after the 9/11 attacks.” Boyle worries that condemning ISIS as evil “conveys a moral clarity and separates ourselves and our tactics from the enemy and theirs”. Boyle should be thankful we have the moral clarity to separate ourselves from the tactics of ISIS. Moral clarity helped make this country great.

The attack on 9/11 by a small band of terrorists was certainly evil and it wreaked havoc on our entire economy and changed our way of life. The NY Times refuses to accept it as evil and The Daily Kos would have us believe that a much larger, better financed, and highly motivated terrorist army such as ISIS poses no threat. Far-left heads are buried in moral equivalent sand.

Perhaps an even larger threat to our country comes from those believing in the idealistic and foolish notion of moral equivalency. Allowing it to become government policy is as dangerous as it gets and proudly proclaiming it is just stupid.

    MORAL -EQUIVALENCE can be evil and can be used by some people to destroy the society that created the concept.

    Centuries were required for civilization to develop the ability to live together and accept the concept of moral-equivalence.

    Radical Islamists, like ISIS, are trying to destroy civilization.

    ISIS is not to be marginalized, to do so would be a mistake. Our President is in far far over his head and refuses any attempt at reason even when he knows his attitude may cost American lives.
