Michele Bachmann's McCarthyism?
by David N. Bossie
It would be the height of folly if, in the name of political correctness, "diversity," "multiculturalism" or a fear of giving offense, the government continues to ignore what our enemies say is their intent to subvert us from within – and evidence of their success in doing so. If anybody is engaging in "McCarthyism," it is those who seek to pillory and silence the few courageous enough to speak out.
An independent FBI report making news this morning states that Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan – an Islamic radical – was NOT investigated by FBI agents before the shooting because of "political correctness." This fatal mistake led to the killing of 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas in 2009. National security must trump political correctness; people die when our government fails in its duties because they are worried of offending people.
That is why it infuriates me that Sen. McCain and the liberal media blindly attacked Reps. Michele Bachmann, Louie Gohmert, Trent Franks, Lynn Westmoreland and Tom Rooney for doing their jobs. If people actually read the letters they sent (I'm guessing most of the commentators in The ARENA haven't) to the inspectors general of the State, Justice, Defense and Homeland Security Departments and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence they would see there was no tinge of racism in any of the letters.
