Yesterday, at Fort Hood, Texas, political correctness allowed a "devout" muslim to murder 13 soldiers. Political correctness kept this guy from being discharged. Let's say someone voiced their concerns last week---they would have been accused of being racist or an islamaphobe. Who wants to stick their neck out? Who wants to risk their career? Maybe someone who has read Vince Flynn novels.
The facts will come out. So far we know---
this "major" had never been deployed. And even in a deployment, he would not have gone out on patrol.
this guy hated women. refused to be photographed with them. had trouble getting a wife. applied to the Palestinian services for a wife at his mosque.
Have you seen the cnn video of the guy in FULL muslim dress at his local store? The shopkeeper said he came in almost every morning from 6-7am. Got his coffee. Read the paper. Talked about how he was having trouble with the thought of a deployment because as a muslim he did not want to have to shoot other muslims. It did not stop him from shooting Americans. As a shrink, he would not have gone out on missions, anyway. His arabic was not that good.
the guy was born in the USA. he attended school on the Army's dime. He owed the Army so many years because the Army---we---paid for his schooling.
the guy was repromanded for pushing his religion. every person he ever "counceled" will now come forward with his weirdness.
It is a sad, sad day for the victims at Fort Hood. It is a sad, sad day for anyone who lost a loved one.
But, political correctness allowed this animal to rise as far as he did in the Army.
the guy yelled "allah ackbar" while shooting.
do the math. 13 dead, and 30 injured---that is over fifty rounds. premeditated. think about it. he planned it.
And no, our troops who live on post do not walk around fully armed. Good grief. Our posts and military bases are very safe.
If he had been deployed, he might have snapped over there.
Do we have the courage to come forward if/when someone does not seem right? Do we have the courage to open our eyes and see the radical side and insanity that is islam?
this guy has now made it harder for muslims to be soldiers. And sadly, it does not take much to set muslims off. They are highly sensitive to our women being in uniform. And what is sad, is that this guy was born here, and was raised here to hate America---just like obama.
I was born and raised here. I was taught to love my country. I was raised to learn history, and respect for human life.
this guy did not know the difference between suicide bombers and a hero that will save his buddies by falling on a grenade. he wrote about it. And if a guy can't see the difference between animals that take life, and a savior that tries to save life by giving His... what hope does he have?
It is time to set aside political correctness because it is getting innocent, brave people killed.
My husband, Bob put it better than me---and he links to the video.

NPR "All Things Considered" reports that Hasan talked at a professional meeting about beheading infidels. A fellow doctor reports:
"He gave a Grand Rounds presentation. . . You take turns giving a lecture on, you know, the correct treatment of schizophrenia, the right drugs to prescribe for personality disorder, you know, that sort of thing. But instead of giving an academic paper, he gave a lecture on the Koran, and they said it didn’t seem to be just an informational lecture, but it seemed to be his own beliefs. That’s what a lot of people thought."
"He talked about how if you’re a nonbeliever the Koran says you should have your head cut off, you should have oil poured down your throat, you should be set on fire. And I said well couldn’t this just be his educating you? And the psychiatrist said yes, but one of the Muslims in the audience, another psychiatrist, raised his hand and was quite disturbed and he said you know, a lot of us don’t believe these things you’re saying, and that there was no place where Hasan couched it as this is what the Koran teaches but you know I don’t believe it. And people actually talked in the hallway afterwards about ‘is he one of these people that’s going to freak out and shoot people someday?’"
