Come for the Politics, Stay for the Pathologies

Are You Feeling Lucky?

Authorities have arrested a suspect in the Times Square would-be car bombing. News flash to everyone who was rooting for the white, 40-ish radicalized Tea Partier: it wasn’t him. It was Shahzad Faisal, naturalized (Muslim) citizen from Pakistan; who likely spent the last 5 months training in a Pakistani terror camp. Surprise! The jihadis are back.

Why is America determined to follow Europe down the rabbit hole of politically correct gibberish?

Pam Geller at Atlas Shrugged reported Sunday:

The SUV was filled with propane tanks, fireworks, filled gas cans, clocks with batteries, and two clocks with batteries, electric wire and more. A police official said: “It looks as if the perp was trying to light it up, and was interrupted by the cops, panicked and took off. It looked like someone tried to detonate it and we got to it in time. This is a big deal. It has the makings of a real car bomb.” A police officer who was on the scene said: “I did a lap around the vehicle. The inside was smoking. I smelled gunpowder and knew it might blow. I thought it might blow any second.”

Despite all that, the feds said at first that it wasn’t a terrorist attack. Then what was it?

They also described it as “amateurish” and Mayor Bloomberg said for all he knew it could have been some guy who was upset about Obamacare. Well, that’s one way to keep the 40-ish, angry white, teabagger meme going.

Why are we following this suicidal route? Why can we not say crap when we have a mouthful of it? Do we actually choose “inoffensive” over free - and alive? How do you get your mind around this madness?

But we pad along, bowing to radical Muslim’s demands that Viacom pull an episode of “South Park” that portrayed the prophet Mohammad as a cute fuzzy little teddy bear (they did).  As WND reported, last month warned there is a "very real possibility" that "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will end up murdered like Theo Van Gogh, the Dutch filmmaker killed by an Islamic extremist in 2004 after making a film critical of Islam. How much coverage of that have you seen anywhere other than WND?

Our government seems more concerned with being inoffensive to the Muslim world than protecting our own. We are not even allowed to acknowledge “jihad” officially. We welcome the lunatic Ahmadinejad who has repeatedly threatened to wipe our ally, Israel, off the face of the earth, while chastising Israel for its belligerence (building new apartments on their own land).

We tie the hands of our armed forces, take the word of known terrorists over our own troops and wonder why our enemies still try to blow us out of the sky and annihilate us on the ground. It’s because they hate our freedom and way of life. It’s called radical Islam, wahhabism, sharia, etc. It’s not going away of its own volition. Our great messiah cannot appease them.  They still stone women, because their religion tells them to. You do not fight this sort of depravity with political correctness.

We might choose inoffensive over jihad, but in the immortal words of Ali Limbali: “In the choice between freedom and jihad, Jihadis always choose jihad.”

But being as this is a jihad, the most crazed religious warfare in the world, and would blow your head clean off,  you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk? (with apologies to Harry Callahan)
