Why Won't Liberals Do What It Takes to Protect America and Americans?

You know what? It's time for us as Americans to demand that our government, so intent on taking us to the poorhouse, do what it's supposed to be doing; the reason why we have a government - Protect us from religious fanatics bent on world domination and wiping out the only truly free country the world has EVER seen: America. The question is why won't the left work to free us from radical Islam? Why? Why? Why?

The more we learn about failed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad, the stranger the initial reporting about him becomes. The liberals’ rush to downplay any possible connections to Islam and label him a “homegrown” terrorist were blatant attempts to freeze the story before the truth was known. Now, the facts about Shahzad are showing a liberal establishment that can’t face a reality it created.

First there was New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg dismissing the then-unknown suspect as “a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda who doesn’t like the health care bill (i.e. ObamaCare)” to Katie Couric. Shortly thereafter, MSNBC personality Contessa Brewer was “hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country” because “[t]here are a lot of people who want to use terrorist intent to justify writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain countries or whose skin color is a certain way. I mean they use it as justification for really outdated bigotry.”

So instead the liberal chattering class indulged in updated bigotry. After two terrorist attacks on New York City landmarks in 1993 and 2001 by Islamists, the current mayor of the city immediately points to the most likely culprit in 2010: Tea Party activists upset with the government takeover of healthcare. But why, Mayor Mike, would people angered by federal overreach target a local tourist site like Times Square? The symbolic value would be lost. Then again, maybe attention to constitutional distinctions between different levels of government is the kind of “political agenda” motivating “mentally deranged” people these days. ..
