The PC Strait Jacket
Eric Holder didn’t disappoint the ADL. Now I ask you, who is retaliating? Holder warns against Boston bombing backlash
“Our investigation into this matter remains ongoing – and I want to assure you that my colleagues and I are determined to hold accountable, to the fullest extent of the law, all of those who were responsible for this attack,” Holder said, according to the prepared text of a speech delivered Monday to the Anti-Defamation League. “But I also want to make clear that – just as we will pursue relentlessly anyone who would target our people or attempt to terrorize our cities – the Justice Department is firmly committed to protecting innocent people against misguided acts of retaliation.”
So, to be ‘politically correct’ we aren’t supposed to mention that it has been Muslim jihadists who have caused, are still causing, worldwide mayhem? We all understand all Muslims are not jihadists (radical) but, we also understand Muslim majority countries are teaching hate of all that isn’t Islam. We do know how confrontational Muslims in those countries can be if even a rumor of anyone desecrating Islam or their demi-god Mohammed passes around. Churches are burned, Christians are murdered over any perceived insult. Holder gives all of us very little credit and assumes we are a hateful people. When people are out to kill you, political correctness needs the back burner not another lecture on how awful we are as Americans, especially from a man like Holder who has yet to uphold the laws of our country.
Meanwhile, Barack Obama is trying to reassess what he meant by “game changer” in regard to Syrian chemical weapons. But, the gamechanger may already be in the works.
The Free Syrian Army says Israeli air force jets flew over President Bashar Assad’s palace and bombed a chemical weapons site near Damascus, Maariv reported.
The report said Israeli jets entered Syrian airspace close to 6 a.m Saturday and flew over Assad’s palace in Damascus and other security facilities before striking a chemical weapons compound near the city.
The Hebrew language daily said a Syrian army air defense battery positioned in the city fired at the Israeli jets, but the aircraft left Syrian airspace unscathed. FSA rebels posted a video showing smoke rising from the headquarters for chemical weapons.
There were no reports of the extent of damage or casualties.
All the hemming and hawing and walkback just shows us what a short shelf life any serious considerations have in the crappy administration of BO. Benghazi isn’t going away. He mucked up Libya along with everything else he touches. Now, he doesn’t have to make a decision, still voting ‘present’. With each and every passing day BO loses more credibility.
Preezy is an unhappy man and Congress is to blame. He didn’t get his anti-gun legislation no matter how hard he ‘campaigned’ for it. The sequester was supposed to bring the pain to average Americans. BO did his best, but Congress voted to stop him and, as soon as that ‘s’ is corrected, BO will sign the bill to keep the air traffic controllers on the job.
The idea behind furloughing air traffic controllers was to inflict pain on
ordinary Americans–or, as Klein calls them, “the politically powerful”–so as
to pressure Republicans to raise taxes and to forgo cuts in inessential
spending–or, as Klein calls it, “programs that affects [sic] the politically
powerless.” Instead it was Democrats who felt pressure. The House vote on the
Reducing Flight Delays Act was 361-41, with just 29 Democrats and 12 Republicans in
dissent. The Senate didn’t even bother with a vote, passing the bill by
100 days and counting……
