To further the conversation on the crazy Age of Obama gospel that political correctness directly equates to tolerance, The Complete Las Vegan directs your attention to the brilliant Mark Steyn article of Nov. 14 entitled "Tragedy or Scandal?".
If you liked my column last Sunday "Call Evil By It’s Rightful Name — It’s terrorism, Mr. PC President", you’ll love "Tragedy or Scandal?".
Here’s a preview from Mark’s clear-thinking column, and thanks to the friend and loyal reader who pointed it out:
— ‘"Diversity’ is one of those words designed to absolve you of the need to think. Likewise, a belief in ‘multiculturalism’ doesn’t require you to know anything at all about other cultures, just to feel generally warm and fluffy about them."
— "Well, like they say, it’s easy to be wise after the event. I’m not so sure. These days, it’s easier to be even more stupid after the event. ‘Apparently he tried to contact al-Qaeda,’ mused MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. ‘That’s not a crime to call up al-Qaeda, is it? Is it? I mean, where do you stop the guy?’ Interesting question: Where do you draw the line?
"The truth is we’re not prepared to draw a line even after he’s gone ahead and committed mass murder."
— "The brain-addled ‘diversity’ of General Casey will get some of us killed, and keep all of us cowed. In the days since the killings, the news reports have seemed increasingly like a satirical novel the author’s not quite deft enough to pull off, with bizarre new Catch 22s multiplying like the windmills of your mind: If you’re openly in favor of pouring boiling oil down the throats of infidels, then the Pentagon will put down your e-mails to foreign jihadists as mere confirmation of your long established ‘research interests.’ If you’re psychotic, the Army will make you a psychiatrist for fear of provoking you. If you gun down a bunch of people, within an hour the FBI will state clearly that we can all relax, there’s no terrorism angle, because, in our over-credentialized society, it doesn’t count unless you’re found to be carrying Permit #57982BQ3a from the relevant State Board of Jihadist Licensing."
Ding, ding, ding! Ladies and gentlemen, this column is an intellectual winner. Read it. Weep for your oh-so-smart liberal progressive friends.
