In the latest edition of political correctness gone wild, Mikey Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation are droning on about scope manufacturer Trijicon putting Scripture references on their gun optics that our troops use to kill Muslim maniacs. They think a biblical citation will offend our opposition and be used as a recruiting tool for terrorist tools.

This politically correct, anti-Christian military “watch dog” is the same group of wizards that didn’t catch Nidal Malik Hasan’s “SoA” (Soldier of Allah ref) on his military business card and claim that somehow Hasan felt harassed by non-Muslim military meanies into killing our troops at Fort Hood. How sweet.

Yep, the overly sensitive ones at MRFF are very concerned that an obscure Scripture reference built into the serial number in tiny, wittle print on the base of Trijicon scopes will affront Achmed the Terrorist. That would be the same Achmed who screams “Allahu Akbar!” before he lights his penis on fire at 30,000 feet.

Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution

Call me crazy, but I’d think that the most odious aspects of Trijicon’s optics, if I were a terrorist, would not be the murky Bible references but the following ...

• Trijicon’s self-luminous aiming systems that have been battle-tested by those who protect and defend the USA around the globe—rightfully earning Trijicon the reputation of having the most sophisticated and dependable deadly optics on the planet. Yep, Trijicon has united long-range accuracy with instantaneous shot placement like no other. Now ... if I were part of the Taliban, that would tick me off more than JHN.8:12 on a sight rail would. Fo’ shizzle, my nizzle.

• Another thing that would irk me if I were a “Man Made Disaster” (or whatever Napolitano calls terrorists) more than John 3:16 could ever hope to would be Trijicon’s Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight™ (ACOG). Why would the ACOG get under my skin? Well, it’s because this little gadget provides “instinctive” target acquisition and increased hit potential in all lighting conditions. That’s way offensive!

• Another thing that would really get me PO’ed if I were an al-Qaeda op is the Bindon Aiming Concept™ (BAC). Y’know ... aiming with both eyes open! This crap gives the USA a far superior sense of balance and a wider field-of-view. Indeed, the combination of these benefits with a magnified Trijicon sight gives our troops a considerable advantage over their targets. And we all know how unfair that is to Islamic radicals.

Another thing that I’d consider ruder than the vague verses hidden out of view on Trijicon’s sighting system if I were a suicide bomber would be the .223, .308 and .50 BMG bullets that actually come out of the gun barrel and devastate my vital organs. That stuff would get me really pissy. So, MRFF … when are we going to ban bullets for their bellicosity toward poor Muslim terrorists?

Yep, thanks to the PC pressure MRFF applied to our already bound and gagged military wizards, the brass inside the Beltway have come to conclude that if our troops use Trijicon’s optics marked with a reference to the gospel of Mark that al-Qaeda and the Taliban will get mad, go crazy and view our engagement as a holy war.

Uh … let me help you a little bit. These crazy SOBs can’t get any madder. I think at this stage of the game everything we do ticks them off. For example, in their minds: Bible code on a scope = they wanna kill us! Heidi Montag gets a boob job! Argh! We must die! Conan gets cancelled! No soup for us! Pat Boone wears white after Labor Day! Damn Americans! I kill you!

Additionally, the war that we are fighting with implacable Islam—the one which they started—has always been, in their view, a holy war; we’re the one’s who are still pretending it isn’t!

Here’s what I recommend: Being the anything-but-PC pundit that I am, I say we do the opposite of what the PC sheeple suggest we do. Here’s what I think we ought to try:

1. Trijicon renames their ACOG optics to GRTMS, the “Get Ready to Meet Satan” scope.

2. We put the image of Jesus in the scope with his finger pointing up to where the bullet will impact the target.

3. We rename the M4 to 72VP, which is short for “72 Virgins? Puh-lease!”

Finally, I’d like to thank all the patriots at Trijicon for the amazing optics they have provided for hunters, law enforcers and our outstanding military men and women, as well as their commitment, as a company, to Jesus Christ. I’ve got to confess, I have never owned a Trijicon scope and have been a Leupold fan for many years. However, in light of the hell the boys at Trijicon are going through because of their faith, my three new rifles that are currently scopeless will now all be topped with Trijicons. And I suggest, America, that you show them some love and do the same thing with all your rifles that need some glass.
