Political correctness (and the fear that underlies it) run amok

Horrible story of what happens when political correctness and fear of a violent minority group culminate in a school that saw the administration look the other way for fear of offending those violent minority sensibilities.

This, by the way, is how that paralyzing political correctness, a sensiblity that saps courage and morality, begins.

    This stuff can be stopped by counter-insurgency. Training the locals to fight back and exterminate their local enemies, without relying upon distant, inefficient, and most likely corrupt police/army officials.

    The ones that are being directly attacked have the most to gain, and the most to lose. If you tell others, they won’t do anything to help. That’s the problem of far away government in the first place. They have no skin in the fight. So they’ll let you hang for kicks and giggles in the end.

    For real fighters, you want the hardcore. This can be those that are directly economically disadvantaged, which you then provde with an advantage if they agree to your training and organization requirements, or it can be those that are suffering from fear to which you then give them a way to stop feeling afraid.
    As individuals, all peaceable citizens are vulnerable and nothing but prey. But together in an organized posse, they can have extraordinary effects. It’s one thing to be able to isolate one person from the back and make the rest flee, and it is quite another thing to try to hold unto a kill while the pack circles around and rushes in to kill you while you are eating. Those two things are both herd instincts, but one is that of prey and the other is that of vegetable eaters fed up.

    <B>In my opinion, the school did not deal with the problem effectively because they were fearful of being accused of racism,’ she said.</b>
    It’s more like they did not deal with the problem because so long as the Islamic fanatics were targeting people they didn’t give a damn about, everything was peachy keen.
    This is the courage of the Left. This is the result of ‘socialized risk distribution’ and ‘wealth redistribution’. It creates nothing but a nation of cowards, opportunists, and greedy enablers of terror and accomplices to murder.
