After the murders at Fort Hood, Texas, President Barack Hussein Obama stated that we should not rush to judgment as we try to digest the mass murder committed by Major Nidal Malik Hasan. Army chief of Staff George Casey has stated that “I’m concerned that this increased speculation could cause a backlash against some of our Muslim soldiers”.
There was no rush to judgment. The evidence seemed to be very clear and continues to seem very clear. Hasan attended the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia at the time that spiritual leader Anwar al-Aulaqi was the imam. Hasan, who accepted tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars to support his medical education, spoke at a “grand rounds” stating that “infidels” should have their heads cut off and have burning oil poured down their throats. al-Aulaqui crossed paths with two September 11, 2001 hijackers. He has run a website that promotes violence against America. He has praised the murderer for his actions. It appears that Hasan has at least attempted to contact the imam in the months preceding the murders.
In the aftermath of the murders, National Public Radio literally made up a new psychological diagnosis. It is called “pre-traumatic stress disorder”. This is supposed to account for the murderer’s actions based on the fact that after taking thousands of tax payer dollars he did not want to go to Iraq or Afghanistan to fight for his country. As a psychologist I can tell you there is no such diagnosis and any reporter who conjures up such a diagnosis is actually practicing psychology without a license and should be arrested and convicted for doing so.
Another speculation is that the murderer was “burdened” by having to listen to the stories of our fighting men and women returning from the wars and “incorporating” their own REAL Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. As a psychologist who has listened to hundreds of grisly stories from both veterans and abuse survivors, I can tell you that this is as farfetched as the “pre-traumatic stress disorder” speculation. Yes, these stories are difficult to hear. But, they do not lead us to violence.
In fact, the murderer was described by his peers and supervisors as cold, distant, and uncaring. Someone like that does not get close enough to his patients to develop anything close to “secondary Posttraumatic Stress Disorder”.
Our country has become so “politically correct” that we cannot see the truth, let alone SAY the truth.
The murderer is a terrorist. It is that simple. Let’s cut through the crap and say it like it is. This is a culture war and the American people are losing.
We must stand up soon against the Democrat Party (i.e., the National Socialist Party) whose leader wouldn’t even go to Germany to celebrate the death of communism at the 20th anniversary of the tearing down of the Berlin Wall. The stated goal of communism was and is to destroy America and all that we stand for. We must stand up against islamofascists whose stated goal is to destroy America and all that we stand for. And we must stand up against the media that hides the truth about both islamofascism and the liberal fascists who are destroying this nation. If we do not stand up, we are going to lose this country.
