Self-inflicted Blindness Is Stupid, and Can Be Fatal

Over the last few days several European leaders including Cameron, Sarkozy, and Merkel have publicly stated that the push for multiculturalism in their countries has failed.  America was founded on the notion of people from all religions and cultures coming together UNITED to form our great country.  As evidenced by European cities burning, madrassas sprouting up in American towns teaching jihad and muslim dominance, coddling dangerous anti-American Arab countries because we need their oil, and the horrific massacre of 13 soldiers and wounding of 32 on Fort Hood by Nidal Malik Hasan, the baby has long been thrown out with the bath water.
As an HR representative in the US Army I had to coordinate quarterly HR sessions on political correctness and inclusiveness. I saw with my own eyes how such foolhardiness is affecting the strongest military in the world.  My final session, before I requested a reassignment, centered on the topic of Islam having nothing to do with terrorism as a whole.  I specifically remember a soldier coming to the conclusion of “Islam may have been something the terrorists had in common, but it may as well have been baseball.”
When I left the military with an honorable discharge, my first civilian job was as a Task Lead at a a very well known intelligence agency in downtown Washington DC.  My arab co-workers (one Iranian, one Lebanese, and one Sudanese) decided that they will not be working with a Jew (me) and a US Army veteran at that.  They consistently spewed insults at me such as “F-ing Jews,” “Israel is the common enemy,” and “We don’t consider you a part of the human race,” just to name a few.  When I brought this to the attention of management, I was completely blown off because according to my ops chief he “hadn’t heard these complaints from anyone else.”  One guy had an anti-Semitic cartoon on his desk for over a month and I had to complain three times before it was removed.  When the anti-Semites saw that I would not quit on my own they claimed that I had been making derogatory comments towards THEM and demanded that I get walked out right away.  Even though I had clear-cut evidence to the contrary the agency still terminated my employment and I was escorted off premises immediately.  Since it was my very first job out of the military, I didn’t know anything about law suits and by the time I found out that I could have sued, the time limit for a workplace discrimination lawsuit had elapsed.  The most disturbing part of this whole experience is that these people, who have an anti-Semitic agenda as well as blatant contempt for American laws, hold Top Secret security clearances which give them access to information that could cause grave damage to the US if it falls into the wrong hands.
I had long since moved on from that nauseating and degrading experience until the Ft. Hood massacre made me realize that what happened to me was not an isolated incident, but a tepid example of where our country is headed.  The reaction to the Ft. Hood massacre throughout most military communities was one of lack of surprise.  Many of us have seen how blaring warning signs are swept under the rug lest someone sticks out as discriminating.  Major Hasan had raised multiple red flags throughout his career that were purposely disregarded.
By no means am I suggesting that we revert to the era of discrimination and segregation, a dark chapter in American history.  However, we do need to see reality for what it is.  As Representative Allen West so boldly states “Political correctness has no place in our national security policy.”  Over a thousand years ago, Sun Tzu wrote that to win you MUST KNOW YOUR ENEMY (The Art of War).  How can a nation succeed if it’s primary preoccupation is to blind itself?  That is what Political Correctness is!  A stick wielded into our own eye.

About BlazeOfTruth

I am a Jewish immigrant from the former Soviet Union, a US Army veteran, and most importantly, a mom. While I never had much interest in politics I cannot, in good conscience, sit back and watch what is happening to our country. I love this America that was only a dream in my youth. It must remain the "Shining City on a Hill." Importantly, the current administration is mistreating our ally, Israel. Therefore, I have started this blog to show all the facts proving that the current administration is no friend to Israel and no friend to freedom!
