How About Targeting the Demographic Most Likely to Wage Jihad?

A Muslim immigrant stands accused of waging jihad in New York City. He is accused of spilling innocent blood on American soil in the name of Allah – in the name of the religion of peace. 

To be clear – I am not anti-Muslim. I am just anti-getting plowed over by a rented pickup truck on a bike path.

If you believe the Democrats and the Mainstream Media, this attack had nothing to do with the suspect’s religious beliefs. But in reality the attack had everything to do with his beliefs. 

That’s why this heinous monster shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he took out as many of the “infidels” as he could.

Instead of action, our government has given us platitudes and hollow statements of defiance.    

“Our spirit will not be broken.”

“This is the new normal.”

“We will get through this.”

“The terrorists will not win.”

Well, the fact of the matter is - the terrorists are winning. And that’s in large part because of politically correct lawmakers and a flaccid immigration policy.

The suspect in Tuesday's New York City attack - came to our shores -- through a diversity visa program. He had no discernable skills – he had done nothing to merit admission to the country.

In other words, our government was willing to sacrifice our safety for the sake of multiculturalism.

How about we start profiling the people most likely to blow us up and run us over? Or better yet -- why don't we stop them before they get into our country? 

I shudder to imagine how many other Islamic radicals are lurking in the shadows -- waiting to drive a pickup truck into a crowd of innocents - waiting to shout “Allahu akbar” as they wage their bloody jihad.

How many more people must die in the name of the religion of peace?

What happened in New York City does not have to be the new normal. I reject such defeatist statements.

Whether we like it or not, we are at war with radical Islam. Whether or not we fight back – well that is the million dollar question.

And I have no doubt President Trump will unleash the military so they can crush the Islamic radicals and dispatch them to the Lake of Fire.

Democrats and the Mainstream Media will fight us tooth and nail. They contend any effort to protect our nation from the Islamic radicals is a form of Islamophobia.

They seem to believe the moral high ground is to get blown up by the Islamic radicals. I say the moral high ground is to stop the radicals before they can wage jihad.

Americans have a choice - we can either be safe or we can politically correct. We cannot be both.
