To Be or Not To Be – A Terroist

Posted by Mark on November 15, 2009

Why is Obama NOT calling this a terrorist attack?

Political correctness is at least partly responsible for the disaster at Fort Hood. Roger L. Simon in a an excellent article called “Fort Hood: Political Correctness as Murder Weapon” in Pajamas Media, makes this point ” ….Political correctness is derived from the more… intellectually respectable doctrine of cultural relativism. In essence, cultural relativism holds that an individuals beliefs and activities should only be understood in terms of his or her own culture. It’s the ultimate version of “who are we to judge?” If Ayatollah Khomeini wishes to oppress all the women and homosexuals in Iran, it’s their way. If Mao seeks to knock off seventy million of his countrymen, so be it. We shouldn’t impose our values.”
