We are living in a confused time. Confused at least, for the left.
While most sound-minded, sensible people will agree the massive outbreak of terrorism that has swept the globe is the result of radical Islamic faith, there are those who still try to deny it.
Our own president looks for other excuses. Dumb liberal government flunkies like the Attorney General say it’s a lack of “love,” whatever that means. And the swath of liberal, globalist leaders in Europe try to find any other reason for the unchecked violence in their streets.
Surely it can’t be because they allowed in millions of undocumented Middle Eastern Muslims. Surely all of those people hold to the same Western ideals as we do and would never become radicalized and kill their neighbors.
It can’t be because they believe in a violent, hateful branch of Islam.
Maybe it’s because they’re mentally ill! Yeah, that’s it! Mentally ill. Let’s ignore the painfully obvious and go with that.
Sounds crazy? Well, at least you’re thinking straight.
“Authorities have ascribed jihad terror to mental illness on numerous occasions,” said Robert Spencer, including the Orlando, San Bernardino and Chattanooga attacks in the United States. Sometimes it sticks, but usually, days, weeks or even months later, when few people are still paying attention, the police will retract their earlier statements and admit it was a terrorist attack.
No kidding. The fact that they eventually cop to it being terrorism is proof they knew it all along, they just wanted to lie to the public. Hiding the real cause of an attack only ensures more attacks, as the radical Islamic terrorists behind it feel their message is being suppressed. So they have no choice but to do it again.
But if you expose the root cause, you’re in a better position to put a stop to it. Blaming terror attacks on mental illness gives government authorities a break. Instead of seeking out terror cells imbedded in their society, they’ll just hoo-hum to the press and point the finger at mental health professionals.
If only those doctors would do their jobs! We’d be free of violence!
“What could account for this global outbreak of mental illness that always manifests itself in similar ways?” Spencer told WND in an email.
That’s got to be one of the stupidest quotes I’ve ever heard. When the very obvious cause of the attacks is radical Islam, an ideology rampant all across the world, authorities choose to stick their heads in the sand. Their willful ignorance will only lead to more bloodshed.
Recent attacks in Britain have authorities “baffled.” They search for reasons why a young man would murderer an innocent woman and stab five other people, despite the clear evidence he was follow the jihadist’s playbook.
Scotland Yard’s first impulse Wednesday was to say the unnamed attacker was “mentally unstable,” a story that was widely reported throughout Europe and on every major TV network in the United States. By the time British authorities released Bulhan’s name on Friday along with the fact that he was a Muslim, the media attention was turned onto other topics of interest, such as the opening of the Olympic Games.
The fact remains we are living in dangerous times. We cannot allow our governments to foolishly look the other way while radical Muslims execute acts of terror across the world. What will it take for our leaders to wake up and start taking this threat seriously?
My fear is another 9-11 scale attack. God help us if that happens again.
