Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley knows the real cause of the Fort Hood Massacre.

Why is it that when a so-called liberal opens his mouth about the Ft. Hood massacre by a Muslim jihadist I know that I’m going to feel less safe? The corrupt mayor of Chicago (and presidential patron) blames the shooting of 41 soldiers — at the deployment center for the wars against Muslim jihadists in Afghtanistan and Iraq — on the alleged fact that “America loves guns.”

As if the traitor Hasan had not clearly and unequivocally renounced his American citizenship and declared war on his own country because it was not a Muslim state. As if there were not in fact NO GUNS ALLOWED on the Fort Hood base, which is why his soldier (!) victims were unarmed and therefore someone didn’t shoot him dead after his first blast. What is wrong with American so-called liberals that they proudly expose themselves in public as idiots when it comes to the holy Muslim war that has been declared against us? That they just don’t get it? And they don’t.

The New York Times website devoted a whole column to summarizing the debate on the “motives” of the traitor, including a sampling from this blog, which provides a good picture of the mush that has replaced the brains of such otherwise respected leftwing pundits as the Atlantic‘s James Fallows who wrote a column on the attack titled “The Meaninglessness of the Shootings.” Veteran leftist Michael Tomasky writes in the leftwing Guardian,

So if indeed Hasan was an America-hating extremist, what are we to make of it?

And concludes nothing. “America-hating extremist” would be an accurate description of some of Tomasky’s friends — perhaps former friends — at the Village Voice where he once worked. But it is hardly an adequate description of Hasan from what we already know. He thought of himself as a soldier in a global army that has declared war on Americans and Jews in the first place, but also on all infidels in the name of Islam. That puts a somewhat different color on it, Michael. This extremist said to an audience of doctors in university lecture (a military university no less) that those who do not believe in Islam should be beheaded and have boiling oil poured down their throats.

And liberals are too polite (too “politically correct”?) to notice. Actually it’s not polite that they are (they are actually quite rude) but in denial. And why is that? It is the same denial that progressives maintained through the 70 years of the Communist nightmare, denial that mass slaughters were being conducted by their Soviet comrades, that Russia and China were vast prison camps, and that the same fate awaited us in the West if we didn’t wage a cold war against their expansionist designs. It does sound familiar doesn’t it? The only mystery is why progressives (so-called) like Tomasky and Fallows (and President Obama) should bend over backwards to protect medieval psychos — and I am speaking of here of the tens of millions — of Muslims who idolize Osama Bin Laden, Hamas, and Hizbollah and embrace their genocidal agendas. There is only one possible answer to this question and that is to one degree or another leftists regard America as the Great Satan and Israel as the Little Satan or believe at the very least that the policies of these two countries are the real cause of the violence against them.

Norman Thomas (November 20, 1884 – December 19, 1968) was a leading
American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the
Socialist Party of America. He was ordained as a Presbyterian minister in
1911. As a candidate for President of the U. S., Norman Thomas said, in a
1944 epoch speech:
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism”, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened..”
He went on to say:
“I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”
