“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity.”
~ Winston Churchill
The inability of people in positions of authority in America to admit that they recognize evil is stultifying.
First it was 9/11, then Nadal Hassan and Fort Hood.
When Hassan shot and killed members of our military at Fort Hood, “officials” termed it “workplace violence”.
Often attributed to postmodernism, the parsing, renaming and misattribution of meaning of words, things and actions that the progressive intelligentsia and our elitist rulers find disagreeable or distasteful – are in this particular case of linguistic gymnastics not due to a particular philosophical bent.
No, this issue is due to a weakness of character.
It is called cowardice.
Another incident of “workplace violence” happened today.
An innocent woman was beheaded. Another was critically wounded.
Not in a radicalized country abroad.
In the center of America.
In Oklahoma of all places.
Alton Nolen, a recent Muslim convert who was in the process of being terminated – reportedly due to trying to covert people and a resulting argument regarding the stoning of women – beheaded a 54 year-old woman.
Matt Drudge’s links are truly chilling:

Fired After Argument Over Stoning Women...
Celebrated Terrorists on FACEBOOK...
'SHARIA LAW IS COMING!!!!'
'America and Israel Wicked'...
Police classify as workplace violence...
Muslims Shout 'Praise Allah!' Following Press Conference...
This is truly a tragedy for the families of the victims and would have likely been an even bigger one if there had not been another person on the scene with a gun:
“Lewis said Nolen then stabbed Traci Johnson, 43, a number of times before Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff’s deputy and the company’s chief operating officer, shot him.
‘This was not going to stop if he didn’t stop it. It could have gotten a lot worse,” Lewis said. “The threat had already stopped once we arrived.’”
But this is an even larger tragedy when placed in the context of the refusal of our elitist leadership to name the true cause of these events.
No, not terrorism.
This was a murder perpetrated in the “defense” of Islam.
Period. End of story.
Just like Nadal Hassan before him, Alton Nolan killed because Islam was “disparaged”.
And yet as the progressives in government refuse to admit this fact, our President praises Islam, quotes an Imam who issues fatwahs to kill American soldiers, assures us that Islam is the Religion of Peace™ (in all fairness, George Bush did the same) and that a barbaric group with Islam in their name is not actually Islamic.
The failure of people to recognize evil assures that evil will prosper…and by recognize, I not only mean to see it but to also openly define it. Too many in our society are willing to acknowledge the existence of evil, yet turn away when it is necessary to confront it. Weakness is never a positive attribute.
The act of turning away from evil only invites more evil.
Failing to publicly connect Islam with the beheading of Colleen Hufford is tantamount to sending ISIS an engraved invitation.
