Keep Our People Safe(r) at Home

Fort Hood Fallen

So what great lesson did the military and the President take from the experience of the massacre at Fort Hood? Why, the most obvious one, of course: we need more Muslims in the military:

Army recruiter Sgt. Chris McGarity is on the front lines of the military’s effort to add troops who speak Arabic and understand Middle Eastern culture - a battle that grew more challenging after the shooting at Fort Hood, Texas.

McGarity says he recently signed up an Arab-American high school student who lacked only her parents’ approval to enlist. Then came the Nov. 5 rampage at Fort Hood. The Army has charged Maj. Nidal Hasan, 39, a Muslim and Arab American, with killing 13 people and wounding 32.

The high school student’s mother “made her withdraw her application,” McGarity says.

Such experiences illustrate heightened fears of discrimination and harassment aimed at Arab-American and Muslim troops since the Fort Hood shooting, says Mikey Weinstein, a former Air Force lawyer who founded the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which advocates for separation between church and state in the military.

Muslims in the military experience “horrible” discrimination, he says.

Before the shooting at Fort Hood, the foundation had 80 Muslim clients who had reported instances of discrimination and harassment, Weinstein says. Complaints jumped 20% to 103 in the weeks after the shooting. “We had people almost immediately … being told ‘you people’ should not be in the military,” he says.

This news article is so studded with stupidities and down-right dangerous ideas that it makes me want to…what?

Well, here are a few ideas:

  • Encourage young men and women to stay away completely from the stupendously ignorant and blind bureaucracy of our present-day military.
  • Explain to parents that having their children chose a military career is as good as signing their death warrant.
  • Encourage colleges to refuse ROTC groups, but not for their usual Leftish loony reasons. Rather, we want to keep our best and our brightest alive. That psycho killer, Hasan, got his way paid through ROTC. If that doesn’t bring shame on the organization, what does? Is the ROTC even capable of self-exanimation?
  • Let the Muslims out of the military ASAP. That obviates any need for more Muslim chaplains, interpreters, etc. The military is not an equal opportunity employer for jihadists but you’d never know that by listening to what the bureaucrats say.

I support our military men and women. However, I reject totally the current system; it is killing them. This latest example of wanton and brutal murders was shoved under the carpet of psychobabble by those in charge, from our feckless President all the way down. Senior military officers callously sacrifice our young as they mindlessly follow Muslim Brotherhood instructions about how to integrate Muslims into our services.
- - - - - - - - -
The Muslim Brotherhood are the ones running this campaign and it’s time for our young men and women to refuse to go through this charade any longer. They put their lives on the line and they risk courts-martial for doing so. They are not even on the level of cannon fodder anymore. At least being cannon fodder gave you the luck of the draw and the rules of engagement were fair. The way things are now, you can die anytime some high ranking American Muslim jihadist takes it into his head to open fire. Anywhere, anytime, and for one reason: because YOU are an infidel.

This is beyond disgusting. It is immoral and it will destroy the fabric of our country if we permit the Pentagon and its Muslim Brotherhood infiltrators to keep cutting up the cloth of our military culture. This is a fixed game with a marked deck, guys. Get out while you can.

Here is more tripe:

Weinstein says he regularly gets complaints from troops who report name-calling, extra duty on holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving, anti-Muslim graffiti scrawled on prayer centers, and officers who encourage their troops to kill Muslims or demand Christian prayer.

Waahh…mommy, he called me a name. Grow up or get out, you thin-skinned child.

Here’s more bright planning for recruitment:

As the U.S. fights wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the mission to recruit troops who have language and cultural skills useful there has become so critical that the Army created two programs to achieve that goal.

Last year, the Army sought 270 recruits who speak Arabic, Pashto, Dari and Farsi - the languages of Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan - to serve as military interpreters, says Douglas Smith, spokesman for the U.S. Army Recruiting Command at Fort Knox, Ky.

A second recruiting program began in February in New York and has expanded to Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago and Dallas. That program targets non-citizens who have been in the U.S. at least two years and have special language and cultural skills from the Middle East, China and Korea, he said.

“Non-citizens have stepped forward to serve this country in previous wars since the American Revolution,” the military says in its briefing papers on the program.

Just what we need. More infiltration. And these people are going to trust translators like this? How about we either bring our troops home or we train them in the needed language skills? This is so lazy and incompetent that it defies explanation. Or at least any explanation that says much for the success of our eventual survival.

You can read the rest of the p.c. molasses mush here. It’s simply too creepy and suicidal to repeat any more of that MSM cant.

Meanwhile, what about Fort Hood? I avoided the subject for a long time because it was too painful to think about something so deliberate and so unnecessary. Our military leaders should be found guilty of failure to protect their troops, of dereliction of duty, of gross negligence. Anyone in a position of authority who knew about this killer and did nothing but wring his or her hands should be dishonorably discharged. Instead, they’re going to court martial just the murderer, while all those career-minded criminals who let him go on his rampage face no consequences for their malfeasance.

I was looking at the pictures of the dead and wounded today. That’s hard to do in the best of circumstances, but when you gaze on those faces and realize that their “superiors” set them up for death it is even more painful. Think of all the lives shattered by those lazy time-servers: children who grow up without parents, parents left childless, a baby left unborn in its mother’s womb. In fact, all the children of the massacred who won’t be born. Think of the boy from Mexico who managed to earn a PhD in Arizona. A kid who survived the boat trip from Laos only to be killed in this “haven” of America. The dead grandparents, the brothers and sisters.

Our nation ought to be in mourning for these families. Instead, the White House is lit up like nothing happened. They have a big gingerbread house and lots of decorations. “Fort Where?” Oh, yeah, right, someone suffering from PTSD killed a few people. Unfortunate.

Here are the names. Look at them. These were real people with real lives who bled and died at the hands of a parasitic opportunist. Think of their families this Christmas and all the Christmases to come. A calculus of loss that eats at the innards of America while our leaders carry on with their posing and posturing.

These men and women died in the cause of someone else’s paranoid hatred:

  • Mike Cahill
  • Major L. Eduardo Caraveo
  • Staff Sgt. Justin M. DeCrow
  • Capt. John Gaffaney
  • Specialist Frederick Greene
  • Spc. Jason Dean Hunt
  • Sgt. Amy Krueger
  • Pfc. Aaron Thomas Nemelka
  • Pfc. Michael Pearson
  • Pvt. Francheska Velez (& baby)
  • Lt. Col. Juanita Warman
  • Pfc. Kham Xiong

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

These men and women were injured: Spc. Grant Moxon, Joey Foster, Sgt. Kimberly Munley, Spc. Keara Bono, Ray Saucedo, Cpl. Nathan Hewitt, Amber Bahr, George Stratton III, Staff Sgt. Alonzo (Mac) Lunsford, and Staff Sgt. Joy Clark.

The breadth and depth of America was represented here, some places more than once: North Carolina., Iowa, Idaho, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Utah, Wisconsin, Minnesota (by way of Laos), Chicago, California, Tennessee, Arizona (via Mexico), Georgia, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Attention must be paid to the memory or honor of each of these soldier-citizens or we will not survive the parasites who are killing us. Protect our military — encourage them not to serve in a project designed to kill or undermine them.

Infiltration, yes absolutely.
This is a perfect example of stealth jihad,
and the end result.
Hasan did not crack or break
under pressure. I do not buy
that for one second. The MSM
hijacked and perverted this story
with a wink and a nod from the
White House.

One wonders why the Army isn't trying to recruit Arabic-speaking Jews.

Anonymous said...

Honourable discharge? Negligence? This is TREASON. And it's punishable by death. Europeans and Americans better remember what a traitor is and how you treat traitors. I'm fed up with us losing our nerve.

Their killer wasn't that Muslim guy. It was political correctness and the non-discrimination principle of liberalism. The same things that put anyone in the army in danger.

There are also plenty of arabic speaking Christians .... recruit them? ..... that would defeat the whole purpose. The goal is to gut the military, destroy our will and capacity to defend ourselves, take us down one notch at a time to our eventual surrender to sharia.

One does wonder about this obvious point, doesn't one?

Y'all are absolutely correct. It's painful because the military folks in our country are extraordinarily fine people. I grew up around them in a military town and never outgrew my admiration.

But that was pre-Muslim Brotherhood. They laid these plans back 50 years ago or so and so far, everything is falling nicely into place. When they get a bonus like Hasan, it's just icing on the cake.

These guys make the old Communist plots look heavy-handed and jejeune.

Ironically, the ruination of our economy, leaving us as a third world nation may be the spanner in their works that they hadn't calculated.

Western armys, particulary the American and British must recognise diversity as political interference and a military threat - a form of psychological warfare.

I'm just tempted to hazard a guess about the religious background of this clown Mike Weinstein, who is SOOOOOOO concerned about the tender sensibiities of jihadis, uhhhh, Muslims who want to enlist...Oyyyyyyyy...

Some false information has crept into this part of your post.

While early news media reports indicated that Maj. Hasan attended ROTC at "Virginia Tech University," this was later corrected, at least insofar as his having been in ROTC.

Maj. Hasan did not become associated with the U.S. Army until some years after he graduated from Virginia Tech (a.k.a. Virginia Polytechnic Instituted & State University).

Maj. Hasan did not participate in ROTC as an undergraduate, nor was he a member of the Corps of Cadets at VPI.

Consul-at-Arms--

Thank you for the correction and update re the ROTC. It is one of my favorite organizations and it pained me to write that.
