VDH Wins the Internet Today: The Obama Borg

Cannot believe I missed this!


VDH totally wins the Internet today! His prize is a set of Gin-Su knives and a boxed set of K-Tel's Greatest Disco Hits!

(Canadian humour, nevermind....)

Anyway-read this entire thing! 

"In Star Trek lore, the Borg was a collective of servile drone operatives that sought to assimilate other species into its “hive mind.”

"Something akin to that creepy groupthink arose when the Obama administration took power and sought to reformulate the so-called war on terror. Almost immediately, Obama operatives suggested that radical Islamists were no more likely than any other group to commit acts of terrorism. In fact, the very idea of terrorism — not to mention a war against it — was supposedly a Bush-administration construct unfairly aimed at Muslims."

"Obama apparently sincerely believed that there was no intrinsic connection between Islamism and terror; or, if there was, Islamic radicalism was no more dangerous than right-wing or supposedly Christian-inspired terror. Or if Islamic radicalism did arise, it might be mitigated by multicultural sympathy and outreach, mostly by contextualizing the violence as an inevitable result of prior Western culpability."

As he notes:

"These days our martyrs are to die not on the altar of freedom, but on the altar of diversity?"

Not if everyone DOES SOMETHING about it.

Do what you can, not what you can't.
