Verdict is in: Obama’s Political Correctness Kills
Does Administration Understand Yet?
Today in a speech before the U.S. Senate, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano spoke passionately about the terrorist- threat our nation faces. So passionate was Madam Secretary that during the speech she used the words “terrorism” and “terrorist” more than sixty times. This marks an incredible reversal of form and adoption of reality for Ms. Napolitano because in her initial speech to the Senate after her appointment was confirmed in 2009; Napolitano used the words “terrorism” and “terrorist” exactly . . . ZERO times.
You do remember that the Obama administration’s tortured political correctness originally banned the term “War on Terror” and rather than using "terrorism" spoke instead of “Man-Caused Disasters.” You do remember that immediately after the Fort Hood massacre, President Obama called for “patience” and insisted that Americans NOT “jump to any conclusions”^^ about Major Hassan, the man who yelled “Allah Akbar!” before killing thirteen fellow soldiers and wounding 29 others. You do remember that Major Hassan had been sharing his hate-filled inner life with fellow soldiers for seven full years prior to the Ft. Hood shooting . . . and that for his open anti-Americanism Hassan rather than being given a dishonorable discharge had instead been rewarded with three promotions.
You also do remember that in the Army’s 84-page report on the Ft. Hood disaster they never once named Hassan and never once used the words “terrorist,” “terrorism,” “Jihad,” Jihadist,” “Islamic radical” or “Islamic terrorist.” Political correctness, in other words is nothing but what in psychology they label “DENIAL.” And since whether in psychology or self-defense, denial leads to disaster: we are pleased to mark Ms. Napolitano’s belated return to reality, but wonder what’s keeping Mr. Obama** himself from similarly embracing reality . . . .
Ya’ll live long, strong and ornery,
