Political correctness has led the U.S. government to ignore the growing threat of Muslim-Americans radicalized by the violent Islamist extremist ideology promulgated by al Qaeda and its affiliates, according to a shocking report released by the House Committee on Homeland Security.
As a result, the terrorist threat to military communities is severe and on the rise while political correctness continues to stifle the militarys ability to effectively understand and counter the threat. In fact, the report actually states that the Obama Administration has chosen political correctness over accurately labeling and identifying certain terrorist attacks appropriately, even denying Purple Hearts medals to killed and wounded troops in domestic terror attacks.
The scathing report is the result of a heated series of committee hearings on the taboo issue of Islamic radicalization in the United States, a subject that the administration evidently fears will alienate Muslims. The bottom line is that al Qaeda is using U.S.-based Muslim radicals to plan mass casualty attacks. Homegrown radicalization is now the vanguard of al Qaedas strategy to continue attacking the United States and its allies, congressional investigators found.
Recent cases of Islamic radicals threatening military communities are documented in the report. For instance, in June 2009 a U.S. Muslim convert (Carlos Bledsoe) opened fire on a U.S. Army recruiting office in Arkansas. Bledsoe specifically targeted the U.S. military to avenge what he believed was its mistreatment of Muslims, the report says. He also had traveled to Yemen and was radicalized to al Qaedas violent Islamist extremist ideology.
The other case received worldwide media attention because an Army Major (Nidal Hasan) murdered 13 people and wounded 29 others at Fort Hood in Texas. In another glaring instance of al Qaeda-inspired homegrown terrorism, the government also neglected to indict Maj. Nidal Hasan on any terrorism-related charges, considering the case to be an example of workplace violence despite his reported e-mail communications with the operational leader [of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula], the since-slain American terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki, the report said.
Additionally, a policy allowing radical Muslim clerics to lecture in U.S. prisons and circulate jihadist materials is contributing to the creation of Islamist terrorists, investigators found. The radicalization of American Muslims remains a real and serous homeland security threat, according the committees findings, and the U.S. government needs to confront the Islamist ideology driving radicalization.
The U.S. government cannot continue to simply ignore or deflect the threat posed by radical American Muslims, it concludes. Unfortunately, it appears that that within the United States, political correctness has prevented many from sufficiently acknowledging and tackling this dangerous problem. We continue to face an unwavering threat, and must be fully aware that homegrown radicalization is part of al Qaedas strategy to continue attacking the United States.
As implausible as this dangerous PC revolution may seem, the Homeland Security committees findings are backed by the Obama Administrations ongoing Muslim outreach effort. Under the initiative Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano met to discuss national security matters with a group of extremist Muslim organizations, the nations space agency (NASA) was ordered to focus on Muslim diplomacy and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a special order to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties long banned them from the U.S.
The president also sent an America-bashing mosque leader (Feisal Abdul Rauf) who blames U.S. foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks on a Middle Eastern outreach mission and ordered a government-funded meal program for home-bound seniors to offer halal cuisine prepared according to Islamic law. Oh, and Democrats held a special Senate hearing (in response to the spike in anti-Muslim bigotry) to better protect Muslim civil rights in America.
Earlier this year the administration revamped the way it trains federal agents to combat terrorism and violent extremism by eliminating all materials that shed a negative light on Muslims. As part of the transformation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) destroyed instructional material that characterizes Muslims as prone to violence or terrorism. In all, 700 pages of documents from about 300 presentations given to agents since the 2001 terrorist attacks were purged.
I think everyone on FR understands the threat ISLAM is and continues to spread the word.
If you are new and want a direct resource from an OIF combat vet who not only did time for God and Country, but also served as the Ops’ Chief for Blackwater in Al Hillah, Iraq for 3 tours - please stop by here.
I have put a collection of professional academic publications that spell out the threat Islam poses to the Republic that is the U.S.
Enjoy - thanks for posting this — everyone needs to read it and understand that bowing kowtow to Moslems is a BIG RED FLAG and a HUGE sign of WEAKNESS...
The muzzies who kill “infidels” with guns & bombs aren’t being `radicalized’, they’re being NORMALIZED!!
It is normal Islamic behavior as taught in the Koran, Hadiths, & Sura, to persecute, subjugate, or kill nonbelievers. It is the norm & the standard. The Koran states categorically that Muslims must wage jihad upon the Kuffar WHETHER THEY WANT TO OR NOT.
Islam is not live-and-let-live. Islam teaches temporary truce when the Kuffar is too strong. Then it commands the muzzie faithful to CONQUER the “infidels” when the balance of force favors the muzzie side.
And if harmless little Mustafa running his corner falafel stand couldn’t care less about waging jihad, then he’s not being a good Muslim. Bottom line.
The answer is easy, the implementation is a bit more difficult.
I remember as a child being able to watch planes take off from the boarding terminals and no one was wanded or felt up.
One group of people are responsible for those days being gone. If we are to survive, we must call the enemy the enemy and remove them from our midst, and accept no more followers of this devils cult.
The Real Enemy is not Islam. Its political correctness - the movement based on the logical and progressive dismantling and destruction of western civilization.
Were it not for political correctness, we could round up all these swine, kick their butts back to Saudi Arabia, burn down their mosques and treat them exactly like we treated the NAZIs and Communists - those other great enemies of civilization.
Political correctness is the kind of logic that states the government can’t put mentally disturbed people in a safe institution but must allow them to die slowly in public view of exposure, disease and starvation. At the same time, political correctness allows the government to dictate the caloric and salt intake of normal citizens.
Its politics gone mad.
Exactly!...It went from being able to say goodbye to someone at the plane to dumping them at the curb. The shoe bomber made us all remove are shoes, the shampoo bomber made us remove all liquids from our luggage. You can thank them for the cattle lines to get to the x-ray machines or a free grope by a TSA agent. And the top award goes to our government...You can’t profile anyone. Granny in her wheel chair is just as dangerous as that 23 year old Muslim from Yemen. It’s all politics, it’s all P.C. and it’s all bull shit!
Political correctness or treason?
Political Correctness is not Logic, it is Self Deprecation to the point of Insanity.
