Current radical, jihadist movement is merely the tip of the spear

To The Daily Sun,

It has been heartening to read the letters of so many folks who are frustrated, angered and outraged regarding the horrific radical Islamist massacre in California recently. California, the same state that adores it's sanctuary cities. The same state where Kate Steinle was murdered by an illegal immigrant who had seven felony convictions and had been deported five times. Our politicians have not been able to pass Kate's Law, that would protect our citizens from violent immigrants here illegally. That is the depth of their ineptitude and we are supposed to trust them to keep us safe?

Why does our president show strong emotion when discussing backlash against Muslims, yet shows much less emotion in the aftermath of Islamist terror killings? Fort Hood massacre of 13 dead and 31 wounded; Boston marathon bombing with three deaths and others with arms and legs blown off; Moore, Oklahoma beheading of female co-worker and Chattanooga, Tennessee, murders of four Marines and one sailor. And most recently the San Bernardino slaughter of 14 dead and 21 wounded. Of course, the chilling callousness of President Obama resuming his vacation golfing minutes after speaking to the nation about journalist James Foley's beheading by ISIS, is a stark reminder of our president's emotional state.

Even reactions to my Facebook posts were alarmingly predictable. Stricter gun control laws than even California has will do the trick, they said. Apparently that will take care of those pesky pipe bombs, pressure cooker bombs and really sharp knives. There are more deaths caused by radical, white-wing extremists than radical Muslims they claim, sighting the website, Occupy Democrats and the wondrous Southern Poverty Law Center.

Why aren't those cases all over the left-leaning mainstream media who hope and pray that each Islamist terror killing was found to have been committed by a fundamentalist, white, supremacist? Or, gasp, a Christian terrorist, since President Obama likes to remind us of those evil Christian crusaders.

The other writers have covered much of the leftist madness that has transpired and that is where the core problem lies in this country. President Obama is only a symptom of the disease that is part and parcel of the progressive left. It is the left that has turned our schools into centers of victimhood and social justice, along with the loss of free speech, while teaching our children that America is evil. It is the left that provides cover for radical Islam. The New York Daily News even blamed one of the victims for being murdered by these two evil Islamists. That of course is the same paper that made fun of people praying for the dead Americans.

Ahmed the clock (fake bomb) maker is hailed as a science genius and visits the White House. Young children who point fingers and bite pop tarts into the shape of a gun are suspended for their "dangerous behavior." That is how far multiculturalism has progressed as it continues to punch holes in our national sovereignty and our national security.

The current radical, jihadist movement is merely the tip of the spear that threatens to bring down Europe and western civilization. The progressive left in this country is aiding and abetting this downfall. Why won't the GOP identify the enemy within? The totalitarian left and caliphate-driven Islam are in the process of bringing down the West. The freedom loving frog is boiling and climate change is not the cause of the warmth.

Quit spreading the white menace around until we actually need it

To The Daily Sun,

Sunday morning, Dec. 20, we had less than one-sixteenth of an inch of snow in spots. At 5:15 a.m. a city truck drove by my home and spread salt (oh joy) all over the dry pavement. I know it was dry because all the salt is still in little cubes everywhere. Couldn't we wait to spend taxpayer funds and pollute the rivers and lakes until it actually snows?

I know, I know, we have to make my 30 mph road safe for the morons who cruise by my house at 50 mph all the time.

The road crew does a real good job overall, but quit spreading the white menace around until we actually need it.
