Despite these dots begging to be connected, nothing was done about Hasan, nor were his superior officers questioned. The FBI conveniently assumed that his queries were part of his “research” into the effects of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Delving into his conversations with al-Awlaki was deemed too “sensitive.” You can bet if Hasan had been a white supremacist exchanging emails with a neo-Nazi organization about killing people, the FBI wouldn’t have been worried about sensitivity. Hasan was given a pass because he is a Muslim, and the federal government has decided as policy that we must show our “respect” for Islam, that we must promote “diversity,” that we must eschew “profiling” of innocent Muslims, and that we must endorse the obvious lie that the jihadist theology justifying terrorist murder is a distorted “highjacking” of what we’re supposed to call the “religion of peace.” That’s why the Department of Defense labeled Hasan’s jihadist murder “workplace violence,” and why the Webster Commission report speaks of generic “radicalization” rather than the Islamic jihadist ideology Hasan himself endorsed. All of this Orwellian evasion and lying is part of the misguided “outreach” to the Muslim world that for over a decade has not convinced a single jihadist to give up trying to murder us.
More important, the failure to read the obvious signs of Hasan’s jihadist intentions, and the subsequent air-brushing of his Islamic motivations, both reflect the mind-destroying orthodoxy of another progressive ideological dogma, multiculturalism and its bastard offspring “diversity.” Multiculturalism is a species of anti-Americanism, a melodrama of white Western wickedness against various innocent victims “of color” oppressed and brutalized by colonialism, imperialism, and racism. These crimes demand reparations from the oppressor, mainly in the form of mandated “diversity” in private and public institutions, which means a variety of ethnicity and skin-color rather than of minds. After 9/11, diversity demands intersected with Muslim “outreach” policies to spin a protective cocoon around Hasan’s obvious signs of jihadist intentions.
That obeisance to diversity, even to the point of endangering our citizens, was on the military’s mind became obvious after the massacre in the repellent statement by top Army officer General George Casey: “Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.” No, general, our strength is our political principles that lie at the heart of American identity. And getting rid of phony “diversity” is worse than murdering a pregnant woman, as Hasan did at Fort Hood, only to a moral idiot.
And so goes the progressive mind: immune to fact, full of ideas young in the 19th century, crippled by incoherent thinking, morally idiotic, and slave to unexamined orthodoxies––and sometimes deadly for those who pay the price for progressive dogmas.
