Our Leaders Are Insane

Barb Wire

Above are some of the lads of the Islamic State, which our country’s leaders insist is not Islamic, preparing to murder a few more victims. Do they wear those masks to disguise the fact that they’re really Methodists?

This week a thug in Philadelphia tried to assassinate a police officer. After his arrest, he told police that he had done it in the name of Islam, because, as he put it, American policemen defend laws that go against the teachings of the Koran, against “shari’a law.” The perp also confessed to having pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, ISIS.

So that’s what the man said. That was his motive. And it only took a few minutes for the Politically Correct mayor of Philadelphia to throw the motive out the window. Nope, nosireebob, said the mayor, that incident had “nothing to do with Islam.” Motive, schmotive. Not a blessed thing.

But President *Batteries Not Included has repeatedly declared that the Islamic State is not Islamic–I wonder why they call it “the Islamic State,” then–and Hillary the Hun, slated to be our next president if God is really mad at us, declares that there is no such thing as Islamic terrorism.

Hours after the San Bernardino mass shooting, perpetrated by a pair of self-ordained Moslem terrorists, our U.S. Attorney General sprang into action–she swore she’d pounce on anyone trying to practice Islamophobia (another imaginary “problem” feared by liberals). Apparently saying discouraging words about Islam is worse than killing people.

Are the leaders of our country, of our cities, quite insane?

If by “insane” you mean “completely oblivious to reality, uninfluenced by events, and blind and deaf and unresponsive to anything that does not conform to their ideological picture of the world,” then yes–they are as mad as hatters.

Please don’t ask me to explain the American Left’s infatuation with radical Islam. It’s insane.

Our entire ruling class needs to be replaced as soon as possible, before they finish destroying our country.
