This is #ing ridiculous. I despise political correctness with a passion. Call a spade a spade - tell it as it is. Again, not surprisingly, a terror
attack was committed by religious Muslim fanatics.. And again, not surprisingly, the media is seemingly bending over backwards to avoid mentioning
Do we eschew this knowledge in order to protect Muslims??? Why? Why are we so afraid to simply tell it as it is? We can balance the picture by
emphasizing the reality that Muslim Fanatics - Jihadists - represent a very small number of observant Muslims. But if a problem exists - and a
veritable issue with Muslim extremism plagues most countries with large Muslim populations - then acknowledge it. This political correctness, this
dance around the facts, smacks of the most noxious liberal hypocrisy; while saying the word "fag" or "thats gays" warrants universal condemnation
from the media - an exaggeration of an otherwise innocuous phrase, not to mention a violation of the right to free speech - this same liberal media
presents terrorist attacks committed by Muslim extremists for religious reasons - whether it was the fort knox killings, and now the boston marathon
killings - with a cool indifference, as if its nothing important worth mentioning.
Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to say there is a "war" between Islam and the west (the feared conclusion, no doubt, liberals suspect people will
make), nevertheless, concealing the facts not only betrays the first principle of journalism - impartial reporting of the facts - but also creates the
impression that there is a conspiracy to mislead people; if the perpetrators acted out of ideology, we should be aware of this. To hide it, over and
over again, inures people to a perception that is out of sync with actual reality.
How many more of these type attacks are we to endure before we acknowledge the virulent prevalence of this ideology?
