Authorities managed to foil a plot over the weekend to kill perhaps hundreds of people at a Christmas tree lighting in Portland, Oregon. I'll give you a few guesses as to who plotted this terrorist attempt ...... was it a retired teacher with a colonoscopy bag? Was it a white female breast cancer survivor with a prosthetic breast? Was it a Jewish male who carries nail clippers in his pocket? Was it a three-year-old girl with Barbie backpack? Or ... was it a young Muslim male named Mohamed?
If you went with "young Muslim male named Mohamed" then you would be correct. Steam is coming out of your ears from all the amazing brain work, isn't it?
An actual Muslim! Another foiled terrorist attempt, plotted by a Muslim male who was doing his great service of Jihad in the cause of Allah.
We see deadly political correctness at work in at least two area here. First, of course, at airport screening. Even with his name of Mohamed Mohamud this Islamic goon would not have been singled out for any special attention at one of our airports. That would have been profiling! And no matter how many Americans must die we cannot single out people for special attention at airport security lines simply because they are clearly members of a group of people who, on a daily basis, express their desires to see as many of us dead as possible.
Just how many people do you think have died in this country as a result of political correctness thus far? How many more WILL die?
By the way ... this Islamic maniac's target was Portland, Oregon. In 2005 Portlnd decided not to allow Portland law enforcement officials to participate in key anti-terror efforts with the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force. This is the same FBI that saved Portland's butt here. Now these Democrat "leaders" in Portland are saying that they may reverse their decision and start cooperating. Why? Well ... because now Barack Obama is in the White House.
