The Yoke of Political Correctness…
There is no cogent reason why political correctness exists. The entire notion smacks of hypocrisy, guilt, and a misguided sense of fairness that promotes an insidious false sense of “doing things right”. For reasons not easily explained it has become the sine qua non of fairness in the United States. Actually, most politically correct actions, laws, regulations and stipulations do not reflect anything but someone’s – usually a very liberal someone – idea of what the world should be like. Because they believe that their view of what the world ought to be like, they incrementally change the paradigms of our American culture to reflect that belief.
For example, in a politically correct world there are no Mexican gangs, no Black gangs, no gangs at all that reflect a specific minority. To label gangs as such is unfair, demeaning and politically incorrect. As someone who has a fair amount of experience working with gangs, I can state categorically that Black gangs, White gangs, Mexican gangs, and Asian gangs, among others do exist, and they are proud of their ethnicity. There is also another gang, rather recently developed and fairly well organized. It is Al Qaeda, and it is a Muslim gang.
Years ago – not really all that long ago actually – it was easy to determine what type of gang one was investigating. Police rounded up suspects from specific areas and questioned them. If the suspects were Mexican and the city was Los Angeles, one went to East Los Angeles neighborhoods and took likely culprits into custody for questioning. There was little reason to go into Watts. Ditto in New York. If a Black gang was active the police went to Harlem. Same reason.
How did the police know where to go? Profiling. The police had gang profiles established and if a gang-banger fit the profile he or she was picked up. Profiling saved a lot of time and a lot of lives. Now it is not accepted practice to profile suspects. Why change something that worked, and has worked for centuries? Political correctness advocates did it.
It became unfair to look for specific ethnic groups, and develop a profile that fit the modus operandi of the crime committed. After all, establishing a profile that reflected the input of victims would be unfair to the perpetrator. How so, you may ask? We are not indicting all Blacks (Mexican, Asians, Whites, Italians) when we establish a profile. We are gathering objective data that provides clues to the type of person that might actually have committed the crime. Are we not using these data to simple say: “If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and waddles like a duck, it’s a duck.” Yes, because if it barked it would not be a duck! Likewise if the last 28 terrorist acts were perpetrated by Fundamentalist Muslims, it is highly likely that the next terrorist act would be perpetrated by a Fundamentalist Muslim regardless of what CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) says!
In fact, perhaps the first Muslim group to be profiled should be CAIR. Any group whose leader said that the only law is the Koran, and who believes in Sharia Law needs to be profiled, because there can be no good in someone whose goal is to replace the U. S. Constitution. (http://www.anti-cair-net.org/)“Groups like CAIR have a proven record of senior officials being indicted and either imprisoned or deported from the United States," said U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., co-founder of the House Anti-Terrorism/Jihad Caucus.
CAIR itself recently  was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in an alleged scheme to funnel $12 million to the terrorist group Hamas. In the Holy Land Foundation case, federal prosecutors also listed CAIR as a member of the U.S. branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, a worldwide jihadist movement that gave rise to Hamas, al-Qaida and other terrorist groups. The government will retry the Holy Land case, which ended in a hung jury.
"There was a lot of evidence presented at the recent Holy Land Foundation trial which exposed CAIR and others as front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States," Myrick said. Still, CAIR is lobbying House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers and other sympathetic members of Congress to pressure the Justice Department to expunge its name from the case, arguing the negative publicity has hurt membership and fundraising.”
All persons and organizations who fit into a terrorist profile must be investigated, whether they are Army Majors, or young Muslims traveling from a country far away with no luggage, a one way ticket and an admitted love of Jihad. How can any sane country not do so? Why have Western nations strayed so far from sanity? How can we decide to not “insult” our Muslim brothers, yet risk the lives of our own citizens? Choosing between safety and possibly upsetting any number of Mid-East countries is a no-brainer. Given our superior computer capability, our software programs that use artificial intelligence, we can profile our way to safety far quicker that taking the time to try and convince our enemies that we are nice guys. They have a mission to destroy our way of life and to substitute their way of life for it. They believe that this is the instruction contained in the Koran. Is it? That depends upon whose reading what version of what Koran.
There are a billion or so of peace loving, moderate Muslims. These people are not the enemy, but they are complicit in that they do little to stop the Fundamentalists. Be that as it may, the enemy is the Fundamentalist Muslim. They must be profiled into obsolescence.
