Progressive politicians, and their enablers in the media, have taken to the streets to show solidarity for the massacred and their loved ones. Newspapers around the world have published cartoons depicting France’s national flag, a pen, and lady liberty in defiance to those who would squelch their freedom of thought and expression, only to block out Charlie Hebdo’s pictorials of Muhammad for fear of offending the ideological brethren of the murderers. Yes, you progressives are brave, indeed.
In a world of totalitarianism fueled by political correctness, few wade through the smoke and thunder of demonstrative outrage and qualifying “but” monkeys to call out the weak-kneed hypocrites who’ve shamed anyone who had the audacity to warn the civilized world about the horrors of Islam. To this day, bodies are piling up on this Mohammedan pyre; yet, these same upstanding and self-righteous PC deacons shield their eyes from its glare and keep their distance for fear of offending lest a spark falls upon their delicate sensibilities.
Retired Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters is not a delicate creature. He tells it like it is. Brietbart reported the following:
Peters said the plan for fighting war is “one, you accept that you are in a war. Two, you name the enemy: Islamist terrorists. Three, you get the lawyers off the battlefield and out of the targeting cell. You accept there will be collateral damage, and do you not apologize for it, you do not nation build. You don’t hold — try to hold ground. You go wherever in the world the terrorists are and you kill them. You do your best to exterminate them, and then you leave, and you leave behind smoking ruins and crying widows. If in five or ten years they reconstitute and you have got to go back, you go back and you do the same thing and you never never never send American troops into a war you don’t mean to win.” And “be as merciless as the enemy, if you’re not willing to do that, they will win.”
When asked about how to deal with state sponsors of terrorism, he argued “we have 2,000 years of recorded history of religious insurgencies, the only thing that has worked in 2,000 years is killing them. Now, as far as countries that don’t want to play ball, very simple. Pakistan doesn’t want to crack down on the Haqqani Network, we tell them ‘we are going to go in and take them out, and if you get in our way, we are going to smack your military down’…in a war you fight to win, you don’t worry about political correctness. The jihadis will do anything to win, and we’re worried about our table manners.”
We are at war whether we like it or not. Either wake up, covert, or die. Political correctness will be the death of Western Civilization.
