AWESOME: Lou Dobbs Interview with Larry King

Posted by iusbvision on November 17, 2009

This is a video that anyone who cares about the status and future of the United States must see. Lou Dobbs explains a point of view that has a great deal of merit and truth. About how both parties are owned by special interests, how there are only a few honest and straight shooters in either party (by the way, Sarah Palin is attacked because she has successfully brought down a massive corporate/political corruption ring in Alaska. If Palin becomes President billions in corruption will come to an end and that has parts of both parties frightened to death).

I am very aware that some people see me and this blog as some ideological instrument, what we really try to do here is shine a light on what the elite media culture under reports, ignores, or tries to render powerless so people can be better informed.

When Tiller Was Killed, Leftists didn’t say, “Hey don’t be mean to those abortion protestors”…

Posted by iusbvision on November 17, 2009

All of two abortionists in the country have ever been shot and we see Christians being smeared by CBS’s Bob Seiffert and compared to the Taliban by NBC etc. However, when 1 in 3 Muslims in western countries such as England admit in polls that they are sympathetic or strongly in favor of jihadists the elite media snd the far left jump through hoops to deny any connection from violence to radical islam.

Ann Coulter says that the far left doesn’t like capitalism (which they freely admit) and doesn’t like America in its traditional form. The left also hates Christianity, so when a large section of a religion declares war on both the fer left has now found a religion that they like, so they are taking active steps to protect it and bring us back to a pre-911 mentality.

Ann Coulter gives the quote above in her analysis. No matter what you think of Coulter she makes totally valid points here worth listening to.

It is now clear from the evidence that NPR and the UK Telegraph (LINK) uncovered that Hasan outed himself as a dangerous jihadist to his colleagues more than once (LINK).

Those colleagues were afraid of reporting him in fear of being accused of discrimination.

Those colleagues were right. Getting reported to social actions in the military is serious trouble that is not easy to escape. When I was in the military if you were reported to social actions you were guilty unless you could prove beyond doubt that you were innocent. Lately I have made it a point to ask every veteran I know (and I am in a position to ask many) if their experience when it comes to social actions was different and not a single person saw the situation differently.

The Secretary of the Army came out with a “diversity uber alles” message as Michelle Malkin so ably described it. When George Tiller died President Obama said that he was outraged by the shooting. After the Ft. Hood massacre President Obama came out, spoke about American Indian policy, did some shout outs to some of his friends and started the Ft. Hood discussion on “Now lets not jump to conclusions”.

We watched as the elite media invented excuses for Hasan, calling it “secondary post traumatic stress disorder” which never existed till this shooting and did everything to say that the reason was not what the overwhelming evidence was, that Hasan is a jihadist who was protected by leftist political correctness until 14 people are dead and a great many others injured.

The end result is that political correctness will have an even greater stranglehold on the armed services and the other Hasan’s in the military are now enjoying more protection than ever.

Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters:

Peters asks, where are the Baptist and Methodist marketplace bombers? He also explains how the strategy of political correctness doesn’t work. He explains how his co-workers knew how dangerous he was, but would have had their careers put in danger by trying to take Hasan on.

Michelle Malkin comments:

Question of the day – What would the elite media’s reaction be if the shooter had attended a Tea Party?

Dr. Charles Krauthammer comments:

What a surprise — that someone who shouts “Allahu Akbar” (the “God is great” jihadist battle cry) as he is shooting up a room of American soldiers might have Islamist motives. It certainly was a surprise to the mainstream media, which spent the weekend after the Fort Hood massacre downplaying Nidal Hasan’s religious beliefs.

“I cringe that he’s a Muslim. … I think he’s probably just a nut case,” said Newsweek’s Evan Thomas. Some were more adamant. Time’s Joe Klein decried “odious attempts by Jewish extremists … to argue that the massacre perpetrated by Nidal Hasan was somehow a direct consequence of his Islamic beliefs.” While none could match Klein’s peculiar cherchez-le-juif motif, the popular story line was of an Army psychiatrist driven over the edge by terrible stories he had heard from soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

They suffered. He listened. He snapped.

Really? What about the doctors and nurses, the counselors and physical therapists at Walter Reed Army Medical Center who every day hear and live with the pain and the suffering of returning soldiers? How many of them then picked up a gun and shot 51 innocents?

And what about civilian psychiatrists — not the Upper West Side therapist treating Woody Allen neurotics, but the thousands of doctors working with hospitalized psychotics — who every day hear not just tales but cries of the most excruciating anguish, of the most unimaginable torment? How many of those doctors commit mass murder?

It’s been decades since I practiced psychiatry. Perhaps I missed the epidemic.

But, of course, if the shooter is named Nidal Hasan, whom National Public Radio reported had been trying to proselytize doctors and patients, then something must be found. Presto! Secondary post-traumatic stress disorder, a handy invention to allow one to ignore the obvious.

And the perfect moral finesse. Medicalizing mass murder not only exonerates. It turns the murderer into a victim, indeed a sympathetic one. After all, secondary PTSD, for those who believe in it (you won’t find it in DSM-IV-TR, psychiatry’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual), is known as “compassion fatigue.” The poor man — pushed over the edge by an excess of sensitivity.

Have we totally lost our moral bearings? Nidal Hasan (allegedly) cold-bloodedly killed 13 innocent people. In such cases, political correctness is not just an abomination. It’s a danger, clear and present.
