Strawman: Freedom From Fairness........
7 months ago
Almost three years ago our nation suffered an attack on American soil that resulted in the deaths of 13 unarmed civilians and the wounding of another 30. Our country, who, at time was still enamored with the young politician they had elected as the 44th President, was shocked even more by the juvenile way he handled the difficult situation.
“I hear that Dr. Joe Medicine Crow was around, and so I want to give a shout out to that Congressional Medal of Honor winner. It’s good to see you,” said Mr. Obama. “I planned to make some broader remarks but as some of you might have heard there has been a tragic shooting at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas.” After 2 minutes of prattling on about something senseless---- our country’s leader finally got around to recognizing the tragedy in Fort Hood. Excuse me Mr Obama—what are you—12? A shout out? OMG!!
And now, some 36 months later, we learn that the person accused of the shootings, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, has been ordered by a judge in Virginia to shave his beard and to appear clean shaven at his upcoming court-martial. Hasan, an American born Muslim, feels that he’s “close to death” and that shaving “would be a sin.” Hasan’s court-martial had been scheduled for August, but the legal system, attempting to achieve the ultimate in social correctness and protect the rights of this citizen, delayed the procedure so we could insure all was being done to make things fair.
Make things fair?? Where was the fairness on November 5, 2009 when Hasan, as witnessed by dozens of potential victims, randomly shot 43 soldiers and their families? Where was the fairness as Hasan, who had business cards printed indicating he was a soldier of Allah, shouted Allahu Akbar repeatedly as he fired into the unarmed crowd?
Where was the fairness for 62 year old Michael Grant Cahill, a physician’s assistant who was working on the post as a contracted civilian on the day he was gunned down? Or how about some fairness for Pvt. Francheska Velez who was pregnant at the time she was murdered? Could you tear off a little fairness for 19 year old Pfc. Aaron Nemelka or Pfc. Michael Pearson or Lt. Col. Juantia Warman? Where the hell was the fairness for Spc. Kham Xiong or Capt. Russell Seager? How about some fairness for these people and the others who were killed and wounded? And what about their families and loved ones---what could you possibly be saying to them 3 years after the fact?
And we’ve been debating about whether or not Major Hasan should shave his beard??? Are you kidding me?
Oh, wait a minute; this is the same bunch that turned N.A.S.A. into a Muslim outreach program and was more worried about the affect the Fort Hood massacre would have on the Muslim community in the United States. And this is same bunch who wanted to close Gitmo and try the 9/11 killers on U.S. soil. This is the same bunch of hand-holding- Kumbya humming morons that think the Muslim Brotherhood is an OK bunch of fun loving guys. And this is the same group who looked the other way after four Americans were slaughtered in Benghazi, Libya just a short few weeks ago. What was that—they were protecting the Muslim faith from that awful internet video that supposedly provoked them to violence? Well thank God someone is looking out for the Muslims!!
Are you sick of these guys yet? If so, vote this bunch out on November 6th. And on Monday, November 5th, say a prayer for those who were killed by this Muslim madman in 2009 and ask yourself why he’s still here—and they aren’t.
