Are we “politically correctnessing” ourselves to death?
The simple, and unavoidable answer is…
I can think of no other case that illustrates this better than the insane case of terrorist, Nidal Hasan.
Hasan, a Major at Ft. Hood, had been conversing via email with known terrorists and, it was known that he was doing this but, nobody dared say anything because…HASAN was a MUSLIM and…to be politically correct…WE HAVE TO BE TOLERANT OF MUSLIMS!!!
Over a 6 year period, Nidal Hasan worked as an intern and a resident at Walter Reed where our wounded military personnel recovered.
During that time, Hasan was always on the radar of those with whom he served because of inappropriate comments, odd behavior and his lack of socializing with others stationed there.
Did anyone say anything?
Because he was MUSLIM and nobody wanted to be labeled as ISLAMOPHOBIC.
It wasn’t politically correct.
Ret. Col. Terry Lee, who had served with Hasan said that after the murders of 2 recruits in Littlerock, Hasan made “outlandish” statements against the American military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan, that “the Muslims should stand up and fight against the aggressor”, referring to the United States.
Did Lee say anything at the time?
