Let me get this sickening news out of the way, while I’m waiting to cool off after my bike ride.
Item: Yesterday, during France’s Bastille Day national holiday, a Muslim man purposely drives a truck into a crowd, and kills 80 people before police shoot him down.
Item: Professionally printed posters now appear in public places in Sweden, reading: “Women who don’t wear head scarfs are asking to be raped.” Police don’t know who’s doing this, but our guess would be Muslims.
Item: Hillary Clinton, Democrat–repeat, Democrat–candidate for president, pledges that she, if elected, would, during her first year in office, “settle” at least another million Muslim “refugees” in small-town America. She also promises to grant amnesty to all illegal aliens within her first 100 days.
Trending: Is the Church Becoming Too Political?
For the life of me, I can’t imagine how this kind of talk is supposed to make anybody want to vote for her. Can you?
Every day now we get another news report of some Muslim in a Western country going on a rampage and killing as many people as he can. And every day we get the Western governments pledging all-out war on “Islamophobia”–does fear of Islam seem all that irrational to you?–and pressing on and on and on with bringing in more Muslim “migrants.” Who, for some reason no one has explained, mostly seem to be young, able-bodied men.
Why do the Western governments refuse, apparently, to protect their people? This is the most basic function of government, Job One. If they won’t do that, they have no reason for existing.
I don’t know what has to happen before our governments will protect us from homicidal mania in the name of Islam.
P.S.–I’m bracing myself to hear it from Muslims whom I count among my friends and whom I am sure would never hurt anyone. To them I can only say, “What would you have us do? Just continue the way we’re going, until the whole shebang collapses into violence? Tell me what you think we ought to do.”
