If there’s a silver lining in the Boston Marathon Bombings, let it be that we are now liberated to stop pretending that so long as we’re kind and generous to our enemies, they will reciprocate and peace will prevail.
Movies like Avatar propagandize us to believe that the solution to global strife rests in a Beatles song. But guess what? Nobody gives peace a chance better than Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts – and look what we got for it.
A group of vultures flew in on the peace plane, then used the fog of bliss as cover while they went about building bombs and planning a mass execution of innocent citizens from the naive neighborhoods of Happyville.
Massachusetts as a whole is a magnet to the worst anti-American criminals, not because they want to stick it to us for being mean to Muslims. To the contrary, they come here because we’re NOT mean to anyone.
We open our loving arms, as well as the public coffers, and hand out EBT cards, food stamps, free housing and health care even to people on terrorist watch lists. Why WOULDN’T America’s enemies come to Massachusetts?
By handing out benefits indiscriminately, we necessarily attract people from foreign countries looking for an easy way to get IN to this country so they can plan and execute their attacks on our soil.
It’s one thing to help people in need, and it’s understandable that we can’t prevent every terrorist act. But do we have make it easy!?
Are we obligated to be kind even to those who have no respect for democracy, much less for the value of life itself? Must we serve up our precious Bill of Rights and deliver it to those who are only too happy to use the Constitution as a shield to insulate themselves from suspicion while they plot to devise ways to destroy our freedoms?
Can’t we at least have a rule that nobody who wants to harm America can receive money from our government so they can buy the supplies they need to build weapons to kill us?
Would it be so wrong to make it a little bit harder, financially, for the next terrorist to execute an eight year-old little boy clapping for his father as he crosses the finish line at a marathon?
Can we finally stop saying that it’s racist to deny welfare benefits to a guy on the terrorist watch list, even if he’s Muslim.
And before we get hit again, can we please assume that the next terror attack will probably NOT occur at a marathon, and will probably be
carried out by a female, because Jihadi extremists aren’t stupid enough
to try the same stunt twice. They will assume, rightly so, that people in Massachusetts are more frozen by the fear of being called racist than
by the fear of another terror attack, which means they’re expecting us
NOT to suspect a terrorist in a hijab, until, of course, she detonates
herself and a group of Boy Scouts marching in a Fourth of July parade.
Last but not least, can we agree that it’s OK now to say out loud that a 19 year-old terrorist is just as dangerous as a 30 or 50 year-old terrorist, and may even be MORE dangerous, not because teenagers are evil but because we know that forces hostile to America are training very young children to kill.
We also know that our enemies are taking advantage of Student Visa Programs to get young killers into college where they have even better cover because political correctness in an academic environment is particularly intense. Terrorists know that if the people around them are worried about hurting others’ feelings by expressing their suspicions, they have a much better chance of masterminding their schemes undetected.
As much as we’d like to romanticize about the relative innocence of a 19 year-old killer like Johar Tsarnaev by comparing him to the young people in our own lives, the simple fact is Tsarnaev and his similarly aged buddies who helped with the cover-up aren’t cut from the same cloth as most 19 year-old Americans.
When you’re raised on the other side of the world and taught to believe
America should be destroyed, having the word “teen” in your
age doesn’t mean there’s no evil in your heart.
