America’s Biggest Problem
When Donald Trump entered the presidential race he highlighted various things that have gone wrong with America.
Illegal immigration was by far the most talked about issue for many months. Everyone also knows and agrees that the economy is in BIG trouble too, made much worse by seven years of senseless spending by the Obama administration.
More recently, because of the Islamic terrorists attacks in Paris and in California, national security has become the key issue for many Americans.
But despite all this, America’s biggest problem is actually none of the above – it is a disease of the mind, called “political correctness”.
Political correctness is the worst problem of them all simply because it is THE thing that stops most people from (a) pointing out what is wrong in the first place and (b) offering a solution to fix the problem.
A Recent Example
A timely case in point is the furor over Donald Trump’s suggestion that there should be a temporary ban on Muslims entering America until such times as proper and accurate checks can be put in place so that we know exactly who we are letting into the country.
Over the past week, the political minnows who are challenging Trump for the Republican Party nomination have used this issue to attack him. Obama and Hillary Clinton have done likewise. As have elements within the Republican Party establishment.
As was pointed out in a recent Trump Report, “Trump’s Muslim Ban, The Real Story” (to read it click here) whether it happened by design or accident the whole temporary ban on Muslims issue has led to the Democrats and the “Republican Democrats” singing the same tune and lining up against Donald Trump and the ordinary Republican and conservative voters of America who support him.
Never before has the line between the Democrats/Liberals and the RINOs been so blurred. They are the same animals, the only difference is their labels.
And it is all being done in the name of “political correctness”.
America Is Terrified
Everyone in America is now terrified to say what they really think and feel about any situation, lest they be accused of not being politically correct.
As referenced above, a few days ago, on December 2, in San Bernardino, California, Islamic terrorists attacked law-abiding innocent people, murdering 14 and injuring 21.
When the FBI searched the terrorists’ house they found weapons and bomb-making equipment. When they questioned neighbors they were told that there had been suspicious activity at the house but that no one reported it because they were afraid of being accused of “racial profiling”, in other words it was not politically correct to do so.
How utterly ridiculous is that?
Politically correctness is costing the lives of innocent Americans. The country has to come to its senses, and sooner rather than later, otherwise things will only get worse. Donald Trump is the only presidential candidate who has both highlighted this problem and has refused to be part of the PC/DC mentality.
A Lesson From France
Contrast what is happening in America with what is happening in France.
While Americans run scared and fight about what Donald Trump says and whether his “tone” is too harsh, or worry about how to balance religious liberty and tolerance against domestic security, in France the police are just getting on with their job.
In the wake of the recent Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris, the French have adopted a much more sensible no-nonsense attitude toward radical Islamist terrorism. They have already closed at least three mosques, inside of which they found jihadist documents, terrorist propaganda videos and more than three hundred weapons, including Kalashnikov rifles and 7.62mm ammunition.
And the French authorities are only just getting started.
In addition to the mosques, the French have kicked in the doors on 2,235 homes and taken 232 people into custody or placed them on house arrest.
Hassan El Alaoui, one of France’s chief imams, told Al Jazeera that French authorities were likely to close down more than 100 mosques in the wake of the Paris attacks.
“According to official figures and our discussions with the interior ministry, between 100 and 160 more mosques will be closed because they are run illegally without proper licences, they preach hatred, or use takfiri speech,” he said. (Takfiris accuse and intimidate fellow Muslims who do not share their hard-line interpretation of the Koran.)
Of course, back in America you don’t hear Obama and Hillary talking about what is happening in France. They would much rather come after the legally held weapons of law-abiding Americans so that in the next Islamic terrorist attack the innocent victims will be defenseless.
When will America wise up, forget all this politically correct claptrap, and realize that the rights of the ordinary people to live their lives in peace and safety comes well before any rights of the terrorists and the criminals?
The answer is they won’t. People who don’t know that America is broken will never fix it. The only answer to the problem is to get a REAL leader into the White House. Someone who is not muzzled by political correctness and who is not afraid to tell it like it really is.
The only person who is showing that leadership is Donald Trump.
He may not be politically correct…
…but he will make America great again.
