Politically correct crime coverage obscures facts

The takeaway line in Thursday’s AP report on the unprovoked slaughter at a Marine recruiting center and another U.S. military facility in Chattanooga —- resulting in the killing of four Marines and the wounding of two others, and one police officer —- was this lunacy:

“Federal authorities said they were investigating the possibility it was an act of terrorism.”

Brace yourself. Next we’re told shooter Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, 24, the Kuwait-born gunman, who came to the U.S. in 1996, is a naturalized American citizen. After all, America only takes in the best the world has to offer. 

Abdulazeez had posted these menacing “jihad” messages on his blog days before the attacks, yet was not on an FBI watch list. “Every one of them fought Jihad for the sake of Allah,” the post reads. “We ask Allah to make us follow their path.”

Still we are told federal officials have yet to announce a suspected motive in the attacks.  His high school yearbook quote, “My name causes national security alerts. What does yours do?” might have raised a red flag or two. He was known to have traveled to the Middle East.

But political correctness reigns and as a result, innocent lives continue to be lost.

We’ve been down this road before. Just a couple of memory refreshers:

When Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a military psychiatrist and devout Muslim, shouting “Allahu Akbar” or “Allah is greatest,” opened fire slaughtering 14 and wounding more than 30 others at Foot Hood in 2009, Obama administration officials classified the massacre as an act of “workplace violence.”  This, despite Hasan’s assertion that he shot his victims in defense of Taliban leadership and called himself a “Soldier of Allah.”

Alton Nolen, 30, an Oklahoma man who had recently converted to Islam in prison, changing his name to Jah’Keem Yisrael, went on a violent stabbing spree at the warehouse where he was formerly employed. He beheaded a female worker and attempted to decapitate another, screaming Islamic phrases as he committed the grisly crimes. The women had declined his offer to convert them.  His rampage was also classified as “workplace violence”  rather than terrorism, by an all too submissive, politically correct media.

The latest phenomenon is the lack of reporting the illegal status of criminals.

Miguel Angel Maldonado, a 14-year-old is accused of driving drunk, running a red light and causing a crash that critically injured four people, including a toddler, in Phoenix. The victims had to be cut out of their vehicle. Maldonado, who was not injured, will be tried as an adult. The daily reports he’s facing four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the near-fatal crash. If Miguel laid off the sauce, and decided instead to study, he’d qualify for tuition breaks.

The new normal is abnormal.

    Breitbart 7/17/15: Muslim population swelling to 6.2 million. According to U.S. Census Data, the United States admits roughly 100,000 Muslim immigrants legally each year, representing the fastest growing block of immigration into the United States. Tennessee, in fact, is home to one of the fastest growing immigrant populations in the country, causing the President to give a recent speech there in favor of expansive immigration.

    Similarly, presidential contender Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has also introduced immigration legislation that would substantially increase opportunities for Muslim immigration by creating an uncapped green card program for foreign students specializing in STEM fields while tripling the number of H-1B visas. One of the fastest growing groups of foreign students are from Saudi Arabia, helping propel the foreign student population to an all-time high.

    Senator Rubio’s statement on the terrorist attack in Tennessee did not mention anything about Islam.

    Socialism (Political Correctness) destroys language – and thought: Ultimately, even the language is perverted. All the most treasured virtues, such as “freedom,” “justice,” “law,” “right,” “equality,” etc., are redefined for collectivist purposes, so that even thought can be controlled.” – Friedrich Hayek, The Road to Serfdom.

    Obama is off to NYC for a fundraiser tonight and tomorrow is taking his daughters to see a hip-hop Broadway play about Alexander Hamilton. The casual observer would never know America suffered a terrorist attack yesterday with four Marines murdered in cold blood and others injured by the way this ‘president’ conducts himself.

    All in the day of Obama fulfilling his dream and agenda to transform America which he is accomplishing with the help of Republicans.

      Specifically John McAmnesty and Jeff the Flake, the two goonish U.S. Senators supposedly representing Arizona.

    I respectfully suggest all who read the following to sit down first. On the day 4 UN-ARMED U.S. MARINES were murdered in a cowardlt islamist jihad ON AMERICAN SOIL, our president released the following:

      Puke inducing! Obama has no sense of timing or concerns regarding propriety. He’s off on a fundraising tour tomorrow..

      Christmas and Chanukah are not in any way related to the Muslim holiday of Ramadan. Obama’s idea that diversity is our strength unadulterated crap. America’s strength is derived from the unity of Americans, regardless of their family origins…celebrating our history, and speaking the same language .

    Megyn Kelly, last night on Fox, said GHW Bush (not Bill Clinton) was responsible for “gun free zones” on military bases. I looked it up and here’s what I found:

    As The New Republic piece noted, this is in reference to a specific Army regulation, set in motion by a Pentagon directive issued on February 25, 1992 – right around the time Bill Clinton came in second in the New Hampshire primary.

    In other words, the right has decided to blame Clinton for a policy approved by the Bush/Quayle administration.

    Clinton’s DoD enacted it.

    So, Ronald Reagan didn’t do it. Clinton didn’t write the policy. It looks like Daddy Bush, Jebs! father came up with it. Now – it should be gone – and we’re in a war – why was it not killed already.

  5. CD 9 PC says:

    Today WH spokesman Josh Earnest commented on the Tennessee shootinga. Listen to the foolish question that the woman in the yellow jacket asked about Obama’s travel with his daughters. “Can you flesh out the father and daughter weekend for us.”
    Watch and listen the follow up from Harris Faulkner as she and her panel discuss the inanities the of the so-called reporter’s questions.

    There is no disputing the leftward bend of the press corps.

    What you may not see in the media:

    Muslims staged a protest, defending Islam, in front of the Chattanooga federal building just days before our latest tragedy.

    Does anyone else find it interesting regarding the speed with which the FBI and other Fed agencies swooped into Chattanooga?
    And, at 11 pm last night, during a live news conference in TN., the lead agent continued with vague comments and no facts.

    Something else going on with this?

    Abdulazeez’s father, also named Muhammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, works as a engineering specialist for the Chattanooga Public Works Department, A great place for a man who has been on the FBI terrorist watch list. Where are the backgound checks? I suppose that’s too politically incorrect since his name is Muhammad. Does anyone know of anyone other than a Musklim naming their kid Muhammad?

    • Matt DeGennaro says:

      America’s obsession with political correctness marks us as fools to the cunning Arab World that seeks global Islamic dominance. Let’s not forget the Islamic prayer rugs that show up in the Arizona desert. Many Arab are learning Spanish and blending in with the Mexican illegals.

    Just Reported, July 17:

    The Pentagon says military personnel stationed at recruitment centers will NOT be armed, and the centers will NOT be guarded.

    However, the Pentagon orders that military personnel at these recruitment centers WEAR CIVILIAN CLOTHING.

    (I was not aware that civilian clothing gave the wearer bullet-proof status)

    The Obama administration doing everything possible to cause good people to leave the military and law enforcement.

    • Vince says:

      The media can’t lay blame to the obvious. Watch as they all question what the jihadist killer’s possible “motive” might have been. After all, he was a “good kid from a good family,” as American as apple pie. This montage is proof positive that only liberals graduate from journalism school.
