Perverse Political Correctness: The Pakistan Massacre To The Rotherham Child Sex Abuse Scandal To Ft. Hood...

9/11 Truther Vows Not To Rest Until Everyone Knows He's An Asshole...The Onion

I've often written about the failures of progressive ideology as well as the dangers of political correctness. Both are the sides of the same coin. With the massacre in Sydney this week, it's time to revisit why political correctness is not only a danger to society, but it can also be a killer.
  • Australians are now asking authorities why an Islamist who was charged in his ex-wife's murder and the sexual assault of at least 40 women was free to walk the streets of Sydney. The killer was out on bail.
  • The Pakistanis tolerating Islamist extremism.
  • Last year, an independent study in Rotherham, England, found that at least 1,500 young girls were brutally sexually assaulted in the form of rape, human trafficking and torture over a 15 year period. The perpetrators of the crimes were largely confined to the local Muslim Pakistani community. The Home Secretary in Britain classified the crimes as "institutionalized political correctness." In other words, local authorities were aware of these crimes but did nothing for years. Another MP admitted, "There was a culture of not wanting to rock the multicultural community..."
  • We now know that the Ft. Hood shooting could have been avoided if not for political correctness. Prior to Nidal Hassan killing 13 and injuring 32, authorities already knew of Hassan's Islamist sympathies.  The FBI was aware of Hassan's warped ideology. For example, his communicating with Anwar al-Awlaki, a senior al-Qaeda operative (who is now parrying with his 72 virgins thanks to a Hellfire missile) was widely known prior to the massacre at Ft. Hood.
  • In WWII Germany (and pre-war), it was politically correct to condone violence against Jews. Today not much has changed considering violence against Christians is rarely reported in the main stream media.
  • The only conclusion any rational observer can come to is that Islamist terrorism is just one outcome of political correctness (there are countless other examples).
  • I've written in the past that I don't have a problem with Islam in general except for their contributions to peace in the form of terrorism, decapitating innocents, torture, raping women and children, gang raping, slavery, forced marriages, honor killings, using children as human shields, and hatred of Christians and Jews. Excluding those, it's a religion of peace.
  • But the real disgrace is our tolerating these events and incidents in the name of political correctness. It's also why it takes more courage to be politically incorrect.
