Just another isolated incident...

First, for a great roundup on the story of the Moslem gunman in Seattle, see Planck's Constant blog. An amazing collection of links on the story.
But in the meantime, pay no attention to the pattern of attacks by Moslems, so reads the message between the lines in our media. Officials in the Seattle Police Department assure us, as does our dhimmi media, that the Pakistani man who shot six people yesterday, was just a lone individual.
In another odd twist to this story, we read that the suspect's father works at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington state.
Of course we are now also hearing the predictable spin that he had 'mental problems', bipolar disorder to be specific, and was despondent about employment and personal problems. But pay no attention to the fact that he is a Moslem, and that he in fact announced that as he launched his murderous attack yesterday. No, Islam is a Religion of Peace, and one of the World's Great Religions, along with our own. Or so we are told.
Condi Rice assured us some while back that there is 'benevolence at the heart of Islam.'
Well Gee, Condi, maybe somebody should tell the Mahometans that; they seem to be laboring under the illusion that they should hate, and kill infidels. Maybe that's because their 'Holy' book tells them to do so.
And the facts are undeniable: there has been a series of attacks on Americans by Moslems; the often-repeated cliche that 'there has been no attack since 9/11' is incorrect. While it's true that we have managed to avoid any attacks on the scale of 9/11, we have not escaped all attacks by Moslem jihadists. Our media and our elected officials try to cover up these attacks by dismissing them as merely isolated, one-off incidents, perpetrated by 'deranged' or 'mentally ill' individuals, or 'not motivated by Islam', but they are asking too much of us in asking that we not connect the dots, and avoid noticing the undeniable pattern.
And the fact that we have not had, so far, a repeat of 9/11 is not a tribute to our 'homeland security' efforts, and even less is it a sign that our 'War on Terror' is winning; it is merely by the grace of God, or sheer luck, if you are an atheist, that we have not been hit again as on 9/11/01.
Of course liberalism demands that we avoid recognizing obvious patterns, because doing so amounts to 'profiling', and according to the tolerance tyrants, will inevitably lead to 'hate crimes' against innocent Moslems. As an illustration of the Politically Correct, 'evenhanded' approach, note how the Seattle police have put guards on mosques in the Seattle area, lest the bigoted locals take up torches and pitchforks and descend en masse on their local mosque, as we have seen happen so many times since 9/11. What? It hasn't ever happened since 9/11? Then why is CAIR always mewling about 'Islamophobia' and persecution?
The reaction to this case illustrates everything that is wrong with multicultural, PC America. We lean over backwards to avoid offending the delicate sensibilities of those who would commit violence against us, and insist on pretending that there is no such thing as jihad, no such thing as differences between cultures and religions. Collectively, as a nation, we are all pledging to 'see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil'. Every attack provokes a renewed call from the tolerance tyrants, berating us about 'intolerance', calling for more 'outreach' to the 'Islamic community'. Every act of violence results in more smarmy 'interfaith services', in which the pharisaical kumbaya Christians join hands with the local Moslems and pledge unity. And yet nothing changes; more of the same ensues.
It's all a huge sham, aimed at quelling our fears and inducing obedience; as a bonus, we can feel 'good about ourselves' proud of our 'inclusiveness.
But folks, there is something drastically wrong with being 'inclusive' when we are under attack, when there are many people out there who want us dead or converted to Islam, and when our country is coveted by many hostile people. 'Inclusion' is just what we don't need more of.
Yet most of the comments on this story never once broach the subject of our insane policy of 'inclusion' and openness. Far better, it appears, to simply add more 'security' within our country: our places of worship require armed guards. We acquiesce to more invasions of our privacy when we travel. We often forego taking the plane in favor of less hassle when we travel, sacrificing time and convenience to do so. Many people feel less secure in their homes than ever before -- and with reason. Yet we continue to let anyone and everyone walk across our southern 'border', and we allow a constant flow of visitors and 'refugees' and 'immigrants' from Moslem countries, even from known hostile countries.
Pretending, as we are doing, to wage 'war on terrorism' while we allow uncounted numbers of terrorists-in-training or potential jihadists into our country is tantamount to leaving the doors and windows of our homes open, and then trying to defend against the inevitable predators when they are inside, hiding, and stalking us within our homes.
And the fact is, we are sacrificing lives of our citizens for the sake of 'inclusion' and 'openness' and 'tolerance.'
All hail the great god 'Diversity'. We are offering up the lives of innocents to this hungry god.
What will it take to wake people up? Another major attack like 9/11? God forbid.
So often I have heard conservatives say that another major attack would galvanize this country, and we would all rally around, and close our borders, deporting aliens, especially from Islamic countries. I am skeptical to the extreme about the possibility of that scenario. I think that given our present Politically Correct liberal regime, (and I include both parties here), we would respond to another major attack with simply more of the same.
There would be token arrests and denunciations of 'extremists' but we would go on just as before; our unctuous leaders and our leftist media would warn us about 'backlashes' and 'hate crimes', and we would get lots of saccharine Ad Council spots on TV about 'diversity' and 'inclusion.' Remember the smarmy 'I am an American' ads from 2001, after the WTC attacks?
And we would hear the same liberal fairy tales, once again.
At some point, Americans have to reach a saturation point with cognitive dissonance; at some point, we have to stop letting ourselves be lulled to sleep with the platitudes and the outright Orwellian distortions.
As usual, earlier generations of America had the clear sight to recognize the truth about the Religion of 'Peace,' and its 'prophet', who
...proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent god; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared distinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE...Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant...While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon the earth, and good will towards men"
(from John Quincy Adams, quoted from Robert Spencer, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam, p.83)
