What's so Correct About Political Correctness?

I can't believe this. After the first terrorist attack on our soil since the horrific 9/11 disaster, people are still not calling a spade a spade. This man, by all accounts from dozens of news sources, shouted Alahu Akhbar (God is great) just before gunning down dozens of people on an army base. All accounts also agree that this man contacted Al Quaeda before this incident. The worst part, however, is that the army allegedly KNEW that this guy was a Jihadist. How can this happen in our country? I'll tell you. Political correctness. No one wants to be seen as a demonizer of Islam these days, which is somewhat understandable. However, calling this man a terrorist is not demonizing all of Islam. It's facing up to the fact that under our new commander in chief, the first terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11 occurred.

Yet how many names of the dead do we know? How many times have the media reported on the true victims? Not once. It's all been about poor Nidal Hasan and his apparently second hand case of PTSD. The man had never served in combat before. How did he get PTSD? Answer me that, mainstream media.
