The fact is, to discuss blasphemy laws in Afghanistan and Iraq (Kurdistan, even) is to discuss Islam — specifically, its laws and doctrines. And we, as a politically correct people, don’t know how to do that. Instead, we act as though they don’t exist.
. . . we seem to have arrived at a strange junction where neither jihadist apologists nor surge enthusiasts want to hear the facts about Islamic law. You might say it’s become the new blasphemy.
We want Muslim proxies to replace our trigger pullers. We want Muslim informants to rat out their murderous brothers. We don’t want to be too kinetic, because that loses us valuable
tools allies, but if we aren’t kinetic enough nobody over there respects us and nobody in the rear can pump up support for a half-vast, politically correct, over-lawyered war. The Regular .gov strategic communicators don’t want to say that, and I don’t blame them. The “truth” has to be massaged, made palatable, less painful.
The painful truth is that neither the Ummah nor a significant segment of the population of America is worth the life of a single Mississippi paratrooper.
The painful truth is that there is no legal way to cull the American oxygen thieves, so our defenders defend the unworthy along with the rest of us, and there is no WMD that can rid us of 1.2 billion enemies, enemy sympathizers, enemy apologists, and enemy enablers without fouling our own nest, so we can’t kill near as many as need killing. The best we can do is kill the worst and reconcile the rest.
The painful truth is that Muslim activists in America want to provoke attacks on Muslims in America. They want video of burning mosques on al Jazeera. They want enraged American vigilantes to violate their First Amendment rights. They want the benefits of victimhood. They want to show the world that Americans aren’t the people we’re supposed to be.
The painful truth is that our leaders continue to shovel the Religion of Peace bullshit because neither they nor the American people have the balls to round them up and deport them or intern them like was done to the Nisei.
The painful truth is that there is no accountability. Not for incompetents. Not for traitors. Justice will not be done. Get over it.
The painful truth is that every day the enemy fails to penetrate our defenses and reenact 9/11 or worse is another day We The People grow more complacent, more dismissive of the threat, less willing to tolerate the few sacrifices that have been asked of us, more susceptible to conspiracy theories. Complacency kills. They haven’t killed enough Americans to get the survivors to pull their heads out of their asses.
There are more painful truths, but I’m pissed off enough already. That’s the problem with the “truth.” People say they value truth, but they don’t like pain, and resent the bearer of unwelcome truths.
The “truth” does not always serve us well. Winston Churchill said, “In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a body guard of lies.” Lies, euphemisms, omissions, positive spin; maybe that’s our version of Infidel taqqiya.
