Labels Matter

June 18, 2016

Obama scoffed at critics wanting to know why he will not use the label “radical Islamists” when speaking about terrorism. In a speech filled with ridicule, a standard leftist tactic, Obama asked: “…what exactly using this label would accomplish and what will it change”? This is as disingenuous as it is hypocritical.

What about illegal immigrants labeled as “undocumented workers”? How about “pro-choice” for killing the unborn? What about the “war on women” that is no war? How about the “Party of no” for the GOP? What about the “Affordable Care Act” that continues to increase rather than decrease health care costs? What about the most-used label of all, “racist”, for anyone who disagrees?

Obama and liberal progressives constantly use labels that accomplish masking reality and making an unrealistic agenda more palatable to the masses. Let’s not forget that Obama, who ran for office under the label “The One”, infamously labeled ISIS as the “JV team”. He has even used the vulgar label “tea baggers” in reference to the Tea Party.

It is necessary to identify an enemy in order to defeat it and Obama’s refusal to acknowledge radical Islamists as the enemy has his entire administration and the military concentrating on being politically correct and not offending anyone. The Homeland Security Advisory Council just released a report instructing the DHS not to use any language that might be “disrespectful” to Muslims, including (but not limited to) the words “jihad” and “sharia”, so it seems that labels DO matter as long as they advance the Obama agenda.

Because supporters have labeled him “supremely intelligent”, president Obama arrogantly spews whatever he wishes, expecting everyone to accept his spin as gospel. He has been pissing in our ears and telling us it’s raining for almost eight years, using sarcasm and ridicule to dismiss criticism. As a result, our enemy has been encouraged to escalate its war against us while our efforts have been spent trying not to offend them.

That deserves to be labeled “failure”.

Orlando Massacre Creates Politically Correct Circus

June 13, 2016

Political correctness fatally struck again in Orlando. Even though it is very early in the investigation into the tragic shooting, it has become clear that prior to the attack the perpetrator, Omar Mateen, was given a pass for his inflammatory and fanatical Islamic rhetoric and behavior because of political correctness.

Fear of being labeled a racist prevented anyone from seriously challenging or thwarting Mateen’s intentions. A former police officer who worked with Mateen as a security guard complained about Mateen’s racist comments and vocal desires to kill people but to no avail. This officer claims Mateen was given a pass because he was a Muslim, a claim heard all too often and ignored by a society mired in political correctness.

Inflammatory comments and actions by Mateen sparked two previous investigations by the FBI but nothing resulted. Law enforcement agencies across the country have become severely restricted by PC rules and regulations forced upon them by a society more concerned about offending than defending. Security has taken a back seat to fear of being labeled a racist.

President Obama, unwilling to utter the words “Islamic terrorist” or acknowledge that we are at war with fanatical Islamic terrorists, quickly placed blame on guns as if the fact that the killer’s fanatical Islamic rhetoric and backing of ISIS was just another coincidence. The liberal media followed his lead by blaming guns, the NRA, the GOP, and even Christians – everything but the obvious: Islamic terrorism. Is it really surprising that Trump rose to be a presidential candidate in this sewer of PC pretense?

Everyone knows that 99.999% of Muslims are peaceful and not to be blamed for the worldwide violence occurring. However, there are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world and if only .001% (1.6 million) share the beliefs of ISIS and abet their violence, the world has a massive problem that needs to be dealt with realistically. Denial is certainly not an answer.

Political correctness is, literally, killing us.

Denial Of War

November 16, 2015

After the terrorist attacks in Paris, France’s Le Parisien daily decared: “This Time It’s War”. What, then, do we call all the other times terrorists attacked if not war? We have “progressed” so far that we no longer recognize war when it is right in our face.

War means killing your enemy before they kill you and doing it as quickly and efficiently as possible until they surrender. War is horrifically bloody, vicious, and often indiscriminate. War causes mass destruction and casualties that bring out the worst in human nature and offend all human sensibilities. Reluctance to wage war is wise and prudent. Refusal to do so when necessary is suicide.

There is no such thing as a humane war. That is an oxymoron impossible to achieve. The “war on women”, the “war on drugs”, and the “war on Christmas” are foolish hyperboles that have desensitized society to the true meaning of war. The bullshit of political correctness blinds us to reality and we have become paralyzed by it.

ISIS understands war, has declared war, and is waging war successfully. We have been told in no uncertain terms by ISIS that they are coming here to kill us. They are currently infiltrating Europe through its open borders, some masquerading as refugees. ISIS has not been “contained” and they are not on the run. They are on the attack and Paris is just the beginning.

Our “leaders” have been in denial for years, refusing to even acknowledge radical Islam as a threat. This denial has given Iran time and permission to develop nuclear weapons, allowed ISIS to grow into an active invading force, and kept our border open for invasion. Europe’s denial resulted in bringing the Middle East rampage of ISIS to Paris. That carnage was brought about by only a handful of extremists rehearsing tactics that they are going to bring here on a larger scale.

Climate change (aka global warming) is not the biggest threat we currently face. That, too, is denial. We are at war whether we like it or not and our first step is to kill denial before it kills us. We’ve been losing that battle, too.

Containment Folly

November 15, 2015

From NRO:

On the very day that President Obama declared ISIS to be “contained,” it reached hundreds of miles outside the borders of its so-called caliphate and struck the heart of Paris…This is what happens when terrorists are given safe havens, when they have time and space to recruit and train new fighters, and when they have time and funds to organize attacks…The idea that ISIS could be “contained” was folly from the beginning…A serious war requires a serious strategy, one not hamstrung by absurd rules of engagement that grant enemy fighters known safe haven, nor can it be bound by silly notions that President Obama has “ended” a war that is still burning hot…jihadists are still eager to fight, and wars do not end when one side grows tired of battle…French president François Hollande has vowed to wage “pitiless” war against ISIS. We must demonstrate the same resolve…

No Dignity In Jihad

March 17, 2015

ISIS fighters are dressing as women in attempts to escape the battlefield and the Iraqi army. The humiliation for these terrorists who regard women to be beneath them must be, one can surely hope, intense. It is the least they deserve.

Some of these terrorists tried to maintain Muslim tradition by foolishly keeping their facial hair while dressing as a woman. Apparently, shaving a beard is a step over the line for those using women and children as human shields, beheading innocent people, and viciously slaughtering non-believers.

Being dragged away by Iraqi troops while dressed in drag must be very embarrassing for ISIS terrorists who have been projecting themselves as fierce, unbeatable warriors. How mortifying it must be to find there is no dignity in jihad. There is only ignorance, arrogance, and savagery – and eventual defeat.

Wrong…Wrong…and Wrong Again

February 16, 2015

The U.S. embassy in Yemen is closing as turmoil in the country increases and security deteriorates. This is the same Yemen that President Obama held up last September as a successful model for fighting ISIS, the same ISIS he compared to a “JV team” a little over a year ago.

Obama is now seeking war powers from Congress to help in the fight against ISIS. His premature promise not to put boots on the ground (where there were already boots on the ground) is starting to look a lot like his promise of keeping your doctor and your health insurance plan. He is now considering “limited” ground combat operations against ISIS. Zero has turned into limited – and this is far from over.

He gave terrorists advance notice of when he was going to pull out of Iraq and then, ignoring military advice, pulled all of our troops out and proclaimed the war in Iraq to be over. As predicted, terrorists immediately began taking over Iraq. Obama denied this and began a victory dance over Osama bin Laden’s death and his self-proclaimed decimation of Al Qaeda, the same Al Qaeda that has tripled attacks since 2010 and just now seized an army base in Yemen.

In 2012, President Obama set the use of chemical weapons as a “red line” for using military force in Syria and then did absolutely nothing when chemical weapons were used. Later, in 2013, he tried to say he never set that red line in the first place, blaming the “world” for setting it. It is clear he set it and reneged, setting the stage for ISIS to grow into the world threat it has become.

This president has been horribly wrong on everything concerning the Middle East and terrorism. How wrong does he have to be for supporters and the media to hold him accountable and seriously question his leadership? How much more damage can he do while we wait for that to happen?

Far-Left is Out-of-Touch

January 26, 2015

The far-left continues to act like it is mainstream but that is just a fantasy, like much of its agenda. They are out-of-touch with the majority, but screaming loudly gets attention in the sycophantic media and that makes them believe their views are popular. Reality, however, tells a different story.

The current film, “American Sniper”, is set to become the biggest war movie of all time and would easily win an Oscar for “best picture” if the public were allowed to vote. However, it is receiving criticism from some on the far-left because it presents an American soldier in a positive light while putting down Islamic terrorists. The fact is that a majority of Americans are patriotic and patriotic movies usually do well at the box office, but this does not jive with a military hating, America bashing vision.

Polls show that global warming is far down the list of public priorities but it is still one of the far-left’s highest. The media made much of NASA’s claim that 2014 set a new record for global warmth but it remains silent about NASA’s climate scientists admitting that they are only 38% sure this is true.

Terrorism has now become the top priority for a majority of Americans but the far-left won’t even admit who the terrorists are. A majority of Americans also believe Islam encourages violence but the far-left remains in denial, focusing on the economy instead. Lower unemployment numbers they tout, however, have been proven to be highly influenced by the ending of unemployment benefit extensions. It seems that those who no longer receive unemployment benefits go out and find a job. Imagine that.

Going further against the far-left’s agenda, polls show a majority of Americans: favor the pipeline; oppose closing GITMO; do not believe we won the Afghan War; oppose government funding of abortion; are against late term abortion: and believe race relations have gotten worse under Obama. Also, a majority of New Yorkers have an unfavorable opinion of Al Sharpton, but that should be a “given” by now.

Don’t you wish the far-left was as out-of-sight as it is out-of-touch?

The Press is NOT Charlie Hebdo

January 19, 2015

A great response to the hypocritical press concerning solidarity with Charlie Hebdo came from Rex Murphy last week at the National Post. He’s not buying their after-the-fact commitment and everyone needs to hear what he has to say about it.

From Rex Murphy

…we are in the middle of another blizzard of post-facto hashtag bravery…The solidarity would have been a lot more impressive, more persuasive, some time before this week’s mass butchery…Indeed, at our universities, newspapers and broadcasters, we have seen an ever-shrinking defense of free speech…the press and the universities, have been at best complicit and at worst cowardly when it comes up to defending freedom of speech — not from threats of Islamist fanatics with guns, but in much less demanding circumstances…

Where was this “we” when a video critical of Islam was mendaciously identified as the “cause” of the terror attack on Benghazi… Where is this We of the Hashtags when whole swathes of the press, and some political leaders, refuse to call acts that are plainly terroristic by their proper name…And where was We of the Hashtags when President Obama made the inexplicable declaration at the United Nations that “the future does not belong to those who slander the Prophet”…There is no “We are Charlie Hebdo” in that statement. There is surrender instead…Our universities bleat about inquiry and free speech, but they are feeble and craven, caving in to protestors and special interests…Where was “we” when a band of fatuous progressives protested former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice giving a convocation address at Rutgers University…Where was We of the Hashtags when Ann Coulter was pre-emptively cautioned about what she could or should say by officials at the University of Ottawa? Where was “we” when Ayaan Hirsi Ali was humiliated and an honourary degree invitation revoked after campus activists at Brandeis University — faculty and students — protested…There is no “we” after the killings. There are very few worthy of that claim … and, alas, under the shout of allahu akbar, 12 of them are now quite dead.

PC Idiotic Denial

January 15, 2015

Aided by politically correct useful idiots, radical Islamists are winning their war of terror. While President Obama and the liberal media remain terrorized over labeling the killers “radical Islamists”, saner people around the world are becoming more terrorized by the increasing denial on display.

Even after al Qaeda proudly claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks, blame continues to be spread to everyone but Islamic terrorists. Israel is being blamed by former president Jimmy Carter; Abu Ghraib is being blamed by David Rothkopf of Foreign Policy magazine; the President of Turkey is blaming French security forces; Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is blaming Western leaders; University of London professor Gilbert Achcar is blaming the US; and, of course, some French Muslims are blaming “shape-shifting Jews”.

One would think that France’s tough gun laws would keep the anti-gun crowd on the sidelines in the wake of the Paris attack, but Hollywood’s Liam Neeson couldn’t help himself. He took this opportunity to come out screaming about “too many guns out there”. He also refused to accept that violence in movies has any influence violence in society. Liam is bathed in PC denial on many levels.

CNN unconditionally surrendered to the terrorists without a fight by refusing to show the latest cover of Charlie Hebdo, declaring: “…it is our policy not to show potentially offensive images of the prophet”. CNN has no problems with the infamous “piss Christ” or cartoons ridiculing Jewish people. It’s just the prophet they fear offending. The recent religious ruling from a Saudi cleric forbidding the building of snowmen (because they are anti-Islamic) will surely bring more protective pixelating from CNN.

Idiotic PC adherents fear offending Muslims much more than they fear terrorist attacks. The Obamedia continually frets over it and tries hard to deny radical Islamists have any association with Islam. With protection such as this, is it any wonder terrorists are winning?

Paris Rally Only a Gesture

January 13, 2015

The largest demonstration in France’s history was little more than a feel-good gesture. It was nice that it brought many world leaders together for a moment of solidarity against barbaric terrorism, but it would be nicer if they actually did something to stop terrorism. As long as political correctness continues to reign there will be no advance made against terrorism.

Political correctness continues to be more important than reality for far too many. From president Obama to Howard Dean to the NY Times, the mere mention of Islam or Muslims in relation to a terrorist attack brings more outrage than the bloody attacks themselves. There is more concern and debate about what not to call terrorists than how to combat them, and fear of offending Muslims is greater than fear of terrorism.

Many otherwise intelligent people have bought into this PC foolishness. It makes them feel good and righteous about themselves, but it is literally killing us. European countries are mired in political correctness and now they are becoming mired in terrorism. One follows the other and until the world sees this, the terrorists will continue to win – and they are most certainly winning. Our entire way of life has been disrupted and our freedom has become restrained because of terrorist victories.

The Paris rally did little against terrorism but it did highlight our administration’s continuing political bungling when only an ambassador was sent to represent the US. Obama’s fear of offending Muslims overcame his fear of offending the rest of the world. Yes, he has done more actually fighting terrorism than those marching, but it was still a political blunder.

Obama’s appearance with busloads of Secret Service agents was certainly not missed and Biden’s absence was more of a relief than anything else. However, Holder was right there in Paris and deliberately held back from attending by Obama. That was certainly a message being sent. Had this been a rally against police, Holder would surely have been ordered to lead the march. Sad, but true.
