Typical ‘progressive’ reactions to terror attacks on U.S. soil provide unintentional comedy

Here we are again, dealing with yet more instances of radical Islamic terror, and “progressives” in politics and in the media are, again, figuring out how to handle it all. ( I use quotations on the word “progressive” because all too often it is a contradiction in terms.)

We’ve already seen how some of our usual “buddies” have dealt with it, like our pal Dan Slott slamming GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump for having the unmitigated gall to refer to the bombing in New York City as just that — a “bombing” — before, allegedly, all the facts were in. He even retweeted a tweet from a transgender activist who said Trump was “actively rooting” for the bomb to be terror-connected. Nice.

But … where is Slott, et. al. regarding Hillary Clinton doing the same thing — not to mention the mainstream media, in the form of CNN this time, covering for her by selectively editing out where she referred to the attack as a “bombing”??

The polls not going her way and desperately seeking an opening, Hillary upped the ante today, spewing the typical “Trump’s rhetoric is giving terrorists an excuse” nonsense:

I don’t want to speculate but here’s what we know and I think it’s important for voters to hear this and weigh it in making their choice in November… We know that a lot of the rhetoric used by Donald Trump is being seized on by terrorists… Wea [sic]also know from the former head of our counter-terrorism center, Matt Olson, that the kinds of rhetoric and language that Mr. Trump has used is giving aid and comfort to our adversaries.

“Aid and comfort?” Why, that sounds like … treason! 

Naturally, in cases like these (CNN Clinton assistance aside), the media provides no shortage of qualifiers — like “potential”:

This is where we are in early 21st century America with the Left, folks: For offering solutions to Islamic terrorism, however unpalatable they may seem to some folks, Trump is helping groups like ISIS.

All the while the Fourth Estate is busily helping Trump’s opponent.

I am no fan of Donald Trump. I never thought his candidacy would last, that he would poll lousy and eventually drop out. I don’t believe he is really conservative, and given many of his statements and his temperament, he potentially could make Barack Obama’s abuse of executive authority seem like our first African-American president is the greatest constitutional adherent ever.

But the Left really has no one to blame but themselves for the rise of Trump. It is comical to watch the disbelief coming from the Left: “How can anyone support this guy?” they angrily exclaim.

Even though many on the right have reservations about the GOP candidate, they are weary of the last eight years’ collection of lies, obfuscations, political correctness, and outright criminal activity.

Not to mention, when the media ponders how they’re having little effect on Trump’s outrageousness, one only has to look at how they treated the two George Bushes, John McCain, and worse, Mitt Romney. When a guy like Romney is portrayed as evil incarnate, it’s going to be rather difficult to make people believe what you have to say in the future … even when it is warranted. Like with Trump.

To coin a cliché, “The Boy Who Cried ‘Wolf.'”

So, I, for one, am enjoying watching Trump take on the ridiculous PC which has overtaken us, and thumb his nose at the mainstream media. By the media and the Left routinely giving average Americans the middle finger — calling them “bigots,” “hateful,” and “xenophobes;” refusing to call “radical Islamic terror” just that; championing “sanctuary cities” while belittling those who want immigration laws followed and enforced — they’ve helped make Trump the very manifestation of the reaction to that middle finger.

Side note: I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Doug for allowing me to voice my thoughts here now that it had become impossible to keep The Colossus of Rhodey updated regularly. As Doug mentioned, you can catch my regular writings over at The College Fix.

With only matches and a Koran, would a freezing terrorist talk?

President Karzai needs to apologize to the Civilized World for having such a backwards country. Instead, our president apologizes for troops who burned Korans filled with terrorist wish lists, plots and plans.

Imagine you’ve found Ayman al-Zawahiri. You’ve located him hiding in a barren, mountainous region of Pakistan. It’s cold. Really cold. You know he has information on an imminent attack on American soil, and you need to extract it fast. You’re short on professional interrogators and help isn’t coming anytime soon, but you do have a gun. Remembering that thousands of Afghans went nuts and killed each other over a few burning Korans, you come up with a crazy idea: You can tell him he can have a match and the Koran to figure out a way to stay warm, he can talk, or you could put a bullet in his head. What are the chances that you’d be brought before an international tribunal for violating the Geneva Conventions, and what are the chances that the President of The United States would apologize to the world for your actions instead of pinning a medal on your chest? Sadly, you know the answer.

The scenario that played out over the last few days in Afghanistan over burning Korans only highlights how woefully Western Civilization is responding to its clash with a backwards culture that still stones women, executes gay people, and uses children as suicide bombers.

Let’s set the record straight:

  • Islamic terrorists  are captured on the field of battle trying to kill NATO troops
  • Islamic terrorists are given Korans, which they then use to write terrorist journal entries
  • Korans, littered with terrorist wish-list plots and plans, are taken away to be disposed of
  • Civilian employees see the Korans burning, which causes riots, death and flaming Obama effigies
  • President Obama and the rest of the world grovels at the feet of rioting lunatics

The United States doesn’t need to apologize to Afghanistan. If anything, The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan should apologize to the rest of the civilized world for being so ass-backwards that billions upon billions of dollars was spent trying to drag them into the 21st century. Just over a decade ago these people were hauling women to soccer fields and blowing their brains out with AK-47s. Today, they’ve progressed—they spend more of their time looking for an excuse to kill Christian converts or gay people.

Fact: Muslim dictators and tyrannical regimes slaughter scores of their fellow Muslims, and the response by Afghans is to sit in their squalor not saying a word until a garbage bag of Korans (again, written in and used to incite violence at the local detention center) get incinerated by Westerners. The riots are a joke. The Afghans participating are a joke. And we’re making a joke of Western Civilization by not standing up to the world’s biggest bully-crybabies.

Instead of capturing Islamic terrorists on the field of battle, giving them three hots and a cot (and a prayer mat and a Koran), how about we give them 5.56 mm tracer rounds in the head? It would save everyone a lot of hassle and the embarrassment that comes with asking forgiveness from an “ally” like Hamid Karzai.

When was the last time you heard a leader of the Muslim world apologize for anything? Anything. They don’t, because they’re busy oppressing their own people, blaming it on us, and getting away with it because we let them! The next time Afghans complain about burning Korans, it would be nice if we had a President who told them that subhuman terrorists get their toys burned. Don’t become a terrorist, and you won’t get your toy thrown in the fire.
