Ft. Hood Jihad Attack Shows Lethal Liberal Political Correctness Infests the Army

I cannot get over the astonishing comments (link) by the leader of the United States Army, General George Casey: “As horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.”

A peacetime “political general” if there ever was one. He and undoubtedly many other higher-ups have lost their way in the fog of modern liberal political correctness. This general does not see that the primary and essential purpose of the American military is to protect America and Americans, not to celebrate diversity at the cost of security to those it should protect. To be sure, the American military should embody American cultural principles to the extent consistent with its purpose. Muslims have been serving in the military along side Christians, Jews, and people of other faiths, and should continue to do so, but only under the same rules for all, not under special hands-off, look-the-other-way rules especially for them. Evidence is streaming out that the Army has become so focused on not appearing anti-Muslim that it has become anti-everyone else. Thirteen Americans are now dead, and many others are wounded, because the Army looked the other way at numerous signs of an impending Jihadist attack, and indeed, evidence strongly suggests, created a culture of intimidation that has made soldiers afraid to report disturbing information about a Muslim lest it damage their careers. Will General Casey meet with and tell the wives and husbands, mothers and fathers, sons and daughters of the dead that “as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse”? He was able to say those words for the liberal hosts of the Sunday morning political talk shows on the liberal networks; if he won’t say the same thing to the families of the dead he’s a coward.

This whole affair is a massive disgrace to the Army command structure and a betrayal to Americans. One would not have thought that the rot of liberal political correctness would have infested the Army, but it obviously has to horrific consequence. We have an immense scandal, and one imagines that lots of people should be fired over this but probably won’t be. Knowing what I now know, I do not have faith in either the Army or the Obama Administration to honestly get all the facts and properly fix things to minimize the chance of future deadly internal Jihadist attacks. For the modern American Army, it seems that scrutiny of a Muslim, even when seemingly warranted by myriad danger signs, is regarded as anti-Muslim and violative of its foremost purpose and principle – “diversity.” The Army used to sacrifice lives to defend America; now it sacrifices lives to defend diversity.
