Political correctness holds reality hostage

Facts: One man stands accused of murdering 13 people and wounding 30 others. He is a U.S. Army officer and a Muslim. Tragic for the families -- but still murder.

After 9-11, did American Muslim leaders speak out against this destruction and murder of thousands by Muslims? Mostly silence.

The twisted rope of political correctness is unraveling when truth and facts enter into events and can no longer be ignored. In past wars with other nations, American Japanese and Germans fought gallantly alongside their compatriots -- for America.

Muslims are an exception. All facets and layers of the U.S. government have accommodated political correctness in eliminating "Islam" and "Muslim" from terrorist connections. Yet we all know they are Muslims.

Politically correct blindness may be involved in this case if the Army would send a Muslim Army officer, who resisted such assignment, to fight in a Muslim country. Should we be surprised by this Muslim's actions?

Fact: Some in the American Muslim community practice their own religious law -- Sharia -- which is not according to U.S. law. Two cases in point -- two Muslim families, two daughters. The fathers of both seek death for their daughters because they have besmirched the family honor by becoming "too Westernized." One father, in Peoria, Ariz., is accused of killing his daughter in a vehicular homicide. The other daughter, Rifqa Bary of Ohio, has so far avoided returning to her family and to her death. In America!

This is not the America we once thought of as a melting pot. We are now a multicultural and pluralistic society where the U.S. law and Constitution have been declared null and void. Islam's Sharia law may be America's future legal system.

I can't help but think that a time is coming when a letter stating facts will be considered hate speech and a crime. In America!
