Canada Bends over Backwards for Terrorist Understanding
Seventeen alleged Islamic terrorists were arrested in Canada recently, leaving approximately 50 more terrorist cells to go, according to federal spy agency sources. But even with authorities acknowledging that more arrests are inevitable, there’s one thing that could hinder further takedowns: political correctness.
Since the terror busts, some Canadian journalists have been busy spitballing accusations of ethnic insensitivity at each other from the nation’s editorial pages. Obviously, they’d rather be picking the lint out of each other’s navels than worrying about the folks who want to kill us. Meanwhile, the political climate here is so charged that politicians, editors and police are treading on eggshells, afraid that the wrong words could be enough to send some Islamofascists on a bender—as though they actually need an excuse.
After every set of arrests, Toronto’s police chief shouldn’t have to publicly cozy up to Muslims in a joint press conference, while passages from the Koran are chanted on national television. If the average Canadian channel surfing for Seinfeld reruns had a hankering for the Koran’s greatest hits, then Al-Jazeera would already be widely available on cable TV.
If the police chief had a love-in with every community that represented the culture, religion or ethnicity of an arrested person, we could devote an entire, 24-hour channel to these productions. It could be called the “White Guilt Channel”. (Not to be confused with the liberal infested Canadian Broadcast Corporation.)
