You’ve seen the news. And you’re already seeing the craven apologists for Islamic terrorism groveling and justifying and otherwise excusing barbarism. Indeed, somehow, the Obama administration, charged with upholding the First Amendment principles of freedom of speech, found time back in 2012 to weigh in on an obscure French satirical magazine, and surprising no one, came down on the side of the heckler’s veto:
WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — The White House criticized French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in 2012 for publishing cartoons mocking the Prophet Muhammad.
Then White House Press Secretary Jay Carney questioned the magazine’s judgment after publishing images of Muhammad naked.
“We are aware that a French magazine published cartoons featuring a figure resembling the Prophet Muhammad, and obviously we have questions about the judgment of publishing something like this,” Carney told reporters in September 2012.
I find myself sadly resigned to the fact that barbarous Muslim fanatics will from time to time go upon murderous rampages. It is simply what happens.
But when a society begins to question whether they should be importing a population known for such, the political class immediately chides them and scolds them for being racist, rather than realist. That is what outrages me.
Our pusillanimous White House cannot even trouble itself to use the word terrorism, instead relying on the non-judgmental term “violence.”
CDR Salamander just looked at the issue of immigrant Muslim populations skewing the politics of an open society Monday. There are literally neighborhoods where the parent society has effectively ceded sovereignty to them. So to in the suburbs of Paris, parts of England, and to some extent, here in Dearborn, Michigan.
We’ll be warned for weeks about a backlash against Muslims that never seems to actually occur.
Maybe it is time it does.
