America’s suicidal self-loathing and the malice of the enemy within

In Barack Hussein Obama, Mark Steyn, Nidal Malik Hasan on November 16, 2009 at 11:24 PM

Mark Steyn puts America’s suicidal self-loathing and the malice of the enemy within into perspective here:

For the purposes of argument, let’s accept the media’s insistence that Major Hasan is a lone crazy.

So who’s nuttier?

The guy who gives a lecture to other military doctors in which he says non-Muslims should be beheaded and have boiling oil poured down their throats?

Or the guys who say “Hey, let’s have this fellow counsel our traumatized veterans and then promote him to major and put him on a Homeland Security panel?

Or the Army Chief of Staff who thinks the priority should be to celebrate diversity, even unto death?

Or the Secretary of Homeland Security who warns that the principal threat we face now is an outbreak of Islamophobia?

Or the president who says we cannot “fully know” why Major Hasan did what he did, so why trouble ourselves any further?

Or the columnist who, when a man hands out copies of the Koran before gunning down his victims while yelling “Allahu akbar,” says you’re racist if you bring up his religion?

Or his media colleagues who put Americans in the same position as East Germans twenty years ago of having to get hold of a foreign newspaper to find out what’s going on?

General Casey has a point: An army that lets you check either the “home team” or “enemy” box according to taste is certainly diverse. But the logic in the remarks of Secretary Napolitano and others is that the real problem is that most Americans are knuckledragging bigots just waiting to go bananas. As Melanie Phillips wrote in her book Londonistan:

Minority-rights doctrine has produced a moral inversion, in which those doing wrong are excused if they belong to a ‘victim’ group, while those at the receiving end of their behaviour are blamed simply because they belong to the ‘oppressive’ majority.

To the injury of November 5, we add the insults of American officialdom and their poodle media. In a nutshell:

The real enemy — in the sense of the most important enemy — isn’t a bunch of flea-bitten jihadis sitting in a cave somewhere. It’s Western civilization’s craziness. We are setting our hair on fire and putting it out with a hammer.

  7. theoldadam,I agree with you completely, and I understand what you mean, but I'm going to rephrase it: Many of our citizens — including those elected to protect our rights to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness — are killing us.Those politicians need to be replaced, and all who advance tyranny — hard or soft, Marxist or Islamic — need to be shamed into silence or deported.Our Founding Fathers declared that when any form of government becomes destructive of our rights, it is the right of the People to alter or to abolish it.We don't need to go that far; We've got the perfect framework (the Constitution), we just need officials who will defend it, rather than misuse its name in order to advance Marxism and shari'a.Time to root out the Grima Wormtongues and send them back to Saruman.
