America’s caste system when it comes to mass murder

The caste system to which I refer in my post title is not the shrieks and threats arising from the media’s trial, judgment, and conviction of George Zimmerman.  Instead, I’m talking about the way in which the media and establishment have different expectations depending whether Muslims are accused of killing non-Muslims, or non-Muslims are accused of killing Muslims.  I didn’t come to this realization myself.  Instead, it was part of an email that has been forwarded several times, to the point at which the original author’s identity has vanished:

After reading the headlines about SSgt Bales, the US soldier who shot up Afghanistan civilians, I couldn’t help noticing an irony. There is all this clamor to try this guy quickly and execute him, never mind his having suffered a traumatic brain injury.

Yet this Major Hasan, who shot up Fort Hood while screaming Allah akbar, still hasn’t stood trial and they are still debating whether he was insane even with the clear evidence regarding his motive: slay as many infidels as possible.

So we have a guy in a war zone who cracks, and he must be executed immediately. But this Muslim psychiatrist who was stateside in a nice safe office all day murders 13 and wounds 29 of our own guys and they try to argue the poor man suffered post-traumatic stress syndrome from listening to real soldiers who had actual battle experience.

Two and a half years later, they still haven’t tried the murderous bastard.

    They’re hoping the PResident is around to pardon him or something. Or maybe the public will forget and they can ring up a jury of his “peers” who will acquit him or give him a lesser sentence, such that the “military” doesn’t get shown in a bad way. That would be bad for the Diversity Generals around.

    Be interesting if Zimmerman turns out to be a muslim, wouldn’t it?  Then what the hell would the media do?

    Hasan’s people were arguing pre-traumatic stress syndrome. Have they changed their minds?

     The powers that be don’t give a rat’s patootie about American soldiers. We have been less important than used coffee grounds for decades. Why care about soldiers when there are enemies to appease?

    When a superior man hears of the Tao,
    he immediately begins to embody it.
    When an average man hears of the Tao,
    he half believes it, half doubts it.
    When a foolish man hears of the Tao,
    he laughs out loud.
    If he didn’t laugh,
    it wouldn’t be the Tao.

    Thus it is said:
    The path into the light seems dark,
    the path forward seems to go back,
    the direct path seems long,
    true power seems weak,
    true purity seems tarnished,
    true steadfastness seems changeable,
    true clarity seems obscure,
    the greatest are seems unsophisticated,
    the greatest love seems indifferent,
    the greatest wisdom seems childish.

    The Tao is nowhere to be found
    Yet it nourishes and completes all things.-Tao Te Ching
