Boston Marathon bombing lesson – political correctness kills
Fox News ^ | April 23, 2013 | Jay Sekulow

Posted on 04/23/2013 4:29:15 PM PDT by SJackson

America is facing a jihadist enemy. It is an enemy that has proven it can inflict more civilian casualties on the United States than any other foreign enemy in almost 200 years.

Just last week this enemy killed 3 innocent people, wounded more than 100 and paralyzed a major American city.

Yet, our obsession with political correctness, with a strong desire not to offend our enemies makes our self-defense immeasurably more difficult.

The evil nature and intentions of our jihadist enemies are already clear. They hate us enough to pack pressure cookers with ball bearings, to hijack airliners and turn them into weapons of mass destruction, to wear underwear bombs, shoe bombs, and any other kind of bomb they can smuggle onto aircraft.

Yet we still can’t face facts. Consider these recent events:

Four actually -- the poor MIT cop seems to be regularly left out of the victim count.

A few dead and maimed is a small price to pay for a Tolerance High to a liberal cultist.

Pray for America to Wake Up

Obama, Jane Napolitano, Fienstein and the rest of the democrats think that middle America and especially conservatives are the enemy. democrats/liberals/socialists don't see Islam as the enemy but us conservatives as the enemy . see conservatives stand in liberals’ way of creating their socialist dictatorship utopia. and with Islam liberals share the same ideological hate of freedom and hate of individual rights.

Islam = totalitarianism, no freedom ,slavery , no individual rights

socialism = totalitarianism, no freedom, slavery , no individual rights

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the oldest of the two Boston bomber suspects, is now the fifth suspected terrorist to be questioned by the FBI before they attempted their acts of terror.

Why are we questioning and releasing future terrorists?

Good question. Tamerlan Tsarnaev's name alone should have raised a red flag somewhere. This is a guy whose parents named him after one of the greatest jihadis of all time - Timur The Lame, Tamerlan in Russian, Tamerlane in English.

This fact strongly suggests his parents wanted him to be a jihadi from the day he was born. The original Tamerlane was not a nice man. When he conquered Delhi in 1398 and slaughtered 100,000 Hindu prisoners. in 1401 he took Christian Armenia and enslaved 60,000 people. He slaughtered the rest. In all of his many conquests from Smyrna to Kashgar, it's estimated that his armies killed seventeen million people. Is this what the proud Tsarnaev family wanted for their firstborn son?

Saint Soetero’s worldview and policies do have consequences, don’t they? When the Bushes were in the White Hut the media reminded us of it daily. And now? What difference does it make. Boston, instead of screaming bloody murder, hires a PR firm to invent a feelgood slogan.

Self defense becomes possible once the lefties who throw up roadblocks to such defense are removed from any position where they can implement those roadblocks.

Criminals kill. Any totalitarian placing demands on your life has the potential to kill you, and ultimately will if you don’t submit to those demands. Muslims, national socialists, marxists are the most obvious totalitarians. Witness history. Witness current events.

“Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical, liberal minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Why are we questioning and releasing future terrorists?

WHY INDEED? Why do we even have an FBI and a DHS for all the good they're doing?

American history lesson - CHOICE has killed over 55,000,000 in 40 years.

So why are we worried about Islam?

Don’t you just love the news today?

The entire family—Dad-Mom-both brother’s-wife of one brother & his 3 yr old kid-—

WERE ALL ON WELFARE!!!

They had high end vehicles—wore expensive clothes-—attended the best high school in the area-—and had enough funds to pay $500 CASH to the mechanic who released a car to the younger brother the day after the bombing.

The brothers also bought $400 worth of fireworks in February. Apparently for the gunpowder in the fireworks.

The Mom is under a warrant for skipping the country after getting charged with serious shoplifting at Lord & Taylor’s store.

What a wonderful bunch of coconuts!!!

Scam the American taxpayer for welfare for all of them.....

Travel to Russia for 6 months.....

Blow up bombs because you don’t like America.

Those in Russia who taught such bombing behavior to the elder brother must be laughing their butts off.

American taxpayers funded their enemies-—AGAIN!!!
