Lawmakers Blast Administration For Calling Fort Hood Massacre ‘Workplace Violence’
Fox News ^ | 12/07/11 | Fox News

Posted on 12/07/2011 1:10:41 PM PST by Salgak

Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation's Armed Forces at home.

During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as workplace violence. She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.

Not to mention the attack on 9-11 at all three sites, the twin towers, the Pentagon, and the airplane taken down in Pennsylvania. All in the workplace violence. I suppose a battle field is also a workplace according to their description.

This.

 
This'll happen before Obama ever admits the obvious.

So by that same token, this regime would define the attacks that occurred 70 years ago on Pearl Harbor as a “disagreement.”

Yet another facepalm-inducing “gem of the week” from the worst “administration” — by far — in this Nation’s history.

They cannot even correctly refer to violent work incidents. The correct term for workplace violence is “going Postal.” This attack was jihad, not workplace related. He struck a blow for Allah against the infidels. Ali Akbar, 72 virgins, and so forth.

SUSAN COLLINS actually is taking a stand against the outrageous PC bullcrap? I can't believe that she actually is doing something good for a change. Good for her.

What happened at FT Hood was an act of war.
Our ignorant President will never allow the islamofacist acts in America be classified as terrorism

” - - - the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department - - - - “

Who signed the letter Senator Susan?

Hold them accountable, and work your way up the Chain of Command. Somewhere there is an email of a directive from the White House. Sic ‘em, Susan!

Pam Gellar:
“All American Muslims” is an attempt to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad and to bully them into thinking that being concerned about the jihad threat would somehow victimize these nice people in this show.

The problem people have with Islam is its teachings of violence against and the subjugation of unbelievers. It is with the supremacist ideology and the fervent believers in those noxious doctrines of warfare and subjugation. The ultimate danger posed by a program presenting the “normal” side of life for American Muslims is that it isn’t’t accurate.

The danger is in the deception and obfuscation of the truth which results in the intellectual disarming of the American people.”

You make the mistake that most honest Americans make about this usurper. Obama is not ignorant, he is intelligent and knows exactly what he is doing. He has a plan, and he is following it.

workplace violence also helps pad their gun control statistics.

Hassan’s mass killings tilt the averages to boost the Brady Campain’s (or whatever they call themselves this month)
claims that guns at work are running around killing people.

With the current situation, the meaning may be extended. The phrase was coined in the 70s after a postal employee went on a shooting rampage.
