Hallmarks of liberalism kill
Anti-exceptionalism is forced on children at an early age. Libs think there should be no winners and losers. Just look at little Johnny’s medal for 137th place.
Losing is projected as failure, then fear of failure stifles development. Rational thinking suggests that competition builds character. I guarantee you, when my granddaughter loses in a track meet or softball game, she is resolved to work even harder the next time. I would never try to kill that spirit—liberalism does.
A.E. has infiltrated our culture, military and government. The current administration outlawed use of the word “terrorism,” as if that would make it go away.
President Obama took months to decide whether to appeal to his far-left base, or send our troops in Afghanistan additional help. As a state senator in 2002, he spoke out against the war in Iraq, saying Afghanistan was where we needed to focus. Now, after seven years as an expert on the subject, he had trouble coming up with a plan?
Here’s why. In an interview, the commander in chief said “I’m always worried about using the word victory...”. That’s just great. If he can’t even use the word victory, how are we possibly going to achieve it? We can debate whether or not to be in a “just war,” but one thing is certain—if we are afraid of winning, more soldiers will die.
Political correctness, protected Nidal Malik Hasan (a radical Muslim terrorist) as he rose to the rank of major in the U.S. Army. In lectures, Hasan said things like “non-believers should be beheaded and have boiling oil poured down their throats.” Fear of reprisal prevented his superiors from reporting him. The FBI was aware that he was in contact with Al Qaeda via e-mails, but also did nothing. Hasan murdered 13 (unarmed) soldiers at Fort Hood. Unarmed?—P.C. suggests our military can’t be trusted with weapons!
Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey said, “It’s important for the country not to get caught up in speculation about Hasan’s Muslim faith” and “as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.”
What a leader. Diversity is more important than the lives of his troops! Pvt. Gomer Pyle said, Goll-ee general, I sure don’t want to say anything about that nice man that would get him in trouble.
Casey instructed his commanders to be on the lookout for anti-Muslim reaction to the killings. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano chimed in with “We’re going to do everything we can to make sure there’s not a backlash against Muslim Americans in the United States.”
This is the same ignorance that contributed to the murders in the first place—scrutinizing the whistle blower, not the antagonist. Anti-exceptionalism, political correctness and diversity kill.
A side note: I applaud our legislators for repealing affirmative action in the state of Nebraska.
