On America’s Newsroom this morning, pollster Scott Rasmussen reported the results of a new poll that shows 60% of all Americans want the Muslim traitor Major Nidal Hassan tried in a military court for a terrorist act, while only 27% want it investigated by a civilian court as a criminal act (with Johnny Cochran clones waiting in the wings). But the vast majority of those understanding Hassan’s role in the Islamic holy war against America and the west are Republicans. When it comes to Democrats 50% have no idea that this was an Islamic jihad that threatens them directly. No real surprise here because that was the theme of Kerry’s 2004 campaign, of the Democrats’s sabotage campaign against the war in Iraq, of the left’s attack on Gitmo and determination to make it as difficult as possible to hold and interrogate religious fanatics bent on our destruction, and of Barack Obama’s administration. It is also the curriculum of our universities, including apparently the military university where only a year and a half ago, Hasan gave a lecture to a medical class in which he called for the beheading of infidels and added that they should have boiling oil poured down their throats.
But perish the thought that anyone should suggest water-boarding Hasan to find out his contacts. No, let’s just wait for the next nuclear Hasan to show up.
