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.
