• The Democrats Will Get Us All Killed

    Eight innocent civilians were murdered this week on the streets of New York City by a man from Uzbekistan yelling “Allahu akbar.” Yet listening to Democratic politicians such as Governor Cuomo, Mayor De Blasio, and Senator Schumer, one would conclude that Islamic terrorism had nothing to do with it. The overriding concern of Democrats is to avoid an anti-Muslim backlash and to hell with the security of our citizens. According to the governor, there was no evidence of Islamic terror and the killer—who asked to hang an ISIS flag in his hospital room—was a “lone wolf.” To paraphrase a comment by talk show host Mark Levin, these politically correct Democratic politicians could get us all killed.

    For eight years, I listened to President Obama try to convince Americans that they have nothing to fear from Islamic terrorism. In fact, Obama insisted that there is no such thing as Islamic terrorism. Under his orders, government employees and the military were forbidden to use words and phrases such as Islamic terrorism, jihad, and Allah. As a direct result, we have been more vulnerable to attack. It has been suggested that the terror nightmare in Orlando could have been prevented if Obama had not censored the Department of Homeland Security from acknowledging the existence of a threat. It turns out that this week’s Uzbek butcher frequented a mosque that was under surveillance by the New York Police Department’s excellent counterterrorism unit. Unfortunately for this week’s victims, that special unit could not prevent their murders because it was shut down in 2014 on the orders of Mayor De Blasio. The president did it, so the mayor of our largest city—another Democratic left-wing ideologue—figured it was a good idea to follow suit.

    Philip Haney and other former DHS officials have revealed that Obama deliberately ordered the destruction of anti-terrorist intelligence that had been collected for years. How is it possible that an American president was capable of doing something so contemptuous of the country’s welfare? “I can no longer be silent,” Haney testified, “about the dangerous state of America’s counter-terror strategy, our leaders’ willingness to compromise the security of citizens for the ideological rigidity of political correctness—and, consequently, our vulnerability to devastating, mass-casualty attack.”

    The worst part of America’s counter-terror strategy can be found in our self-destructive immigration policies. The perpetrator of the latest atrocity came into this country thanks to the Diversity Visa Program, which offers a lottery for people from countries with few immigrants in America. A lottery? That’s correct, our Congress has made it possible for potential terrorists to enter the US if they win a lottery. Remember—we elected the people who voted for this. Yet when Donald Trump wants to fix the current policies, his immigration bans are thwarted by rogue judges and he is excoriated by the Left as a racist and bigot.

    It is not bigotry to recognize that the obedient Muslim is ordered by his holy book to conquer and subdue people of other religions until they are in a full state of submission. The Quran is clear that violence and murder are required until all people submit to the tenets of Islam and the laws of sharia. If we accept the religion of Islam into our country, we are also accepting its totalitarian political ideology as manifested by murder, intolerance, and misogyny. We don’t get to choose. Like it or not, one comes with the other. It’s a package deal.

    Daniel Horowitz, senior editor of Conservative Review, agrees:

    “Whenever we admit fervent Sharia-believing Muslims from the Middle East and they commit terror attacks on our soil, we never have a family discussion over suicidal immigration policies. How many people must die before it becomes in vogue to speak that truth—that when you bring the Middle East to your shores … you bring the Middle East to your shores.”

    Mark Levin is but one of many who have voiced frustration with leftist politicians who attack individuals for acknowledging that the Muslim community in America has a significant minority of radicals that seek to damage the United States from within.

    In complete denial of these facts, Democrats are worried that protecting our citizens from attack will result in a backlash against peaceful American Muslims. This all began with Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch, who responded to the San Bernardino terrorist attack by revealing that her “greatest fear” was the rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric. Where did she come up with this? Even after 9/11, there was no anti-Muslim backlash. Hate crimes against Muslims actually have declined since 9/11 and constitute only a small fraction of overall hate crimes. Today’s Democrats are following the precedent set by the Obama administration as they refuse to accept the danger we face from Islamic terrorism.

    I can think of many reasons not to vote for Democrats, but the most compelling justification has been exposed this week by their reaction to the latest in a long line of atrocities committed in the name of an omniscient being from the desert. Let’s get rid of these left-leaning ideologues before they get us all killed.
