Orlando, Paris, Yorkshire, and Donald Trump’s Unanswerable Questions About Immigration

Via comment by Quartermain on Useful idiots

 A French-born Muslim stabbed a French police chief to death outside his home, then tortured the man's wife in front of their toddler son--all while livestreaming his rampage on Facebook.

The very first thing I heard about the Orlando shooter, on the CBS news over my car radio, was that he was an American citizen. They just couldn’t wait to tell us that.

Whether it was precisely CBS who were eager to tell us, or Orlando law enforcement, with CBS just passing on what they got, I don’t know, and it doesn’t much matter. It shows the mindset of authorities at all levels in our society. The thought behind it is the one uttered out loud by General George Casey after the Fort Hood shooting: “As horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.” [Fort hood: diversity rules, NY Post, October 29, 2012]

That is actually how people in authority think: not merely editors of liberal newspapers or TV stations, but managers and leaders in the military and law enforcement, corporate bosses, bureaucrats and politicians, college administrators, all the way down to schoolteachers and librarians


  1. One of the first things I would like to see from a Donald Trump Presidency is the very public firing of "General" George Casey. Frog march him out of his office with the cameras rolling and have every other officer turn their backs on him as he is thrown out the front door, just like the French did with Dreyfus.

    1. The Diversity General.

      Just read his father's biography. Casey served in combat during the Korean War, commanding a 7th Infantry Division company in engagements including the Battle of Heartbreak Ridge, for which he received the Silver Star.

      In 1957 he graduated from the United States Army Command and General Staff College. In 1963 he graduated from the National War College. He commanded 3rd Brigade, 8th Infantry Division in West Germany from 1963 to 1965.

      In the late 1960s he served with the 1st Cavalry Division, first as chief of staff and later as assistant division commander. While home on leave from serving in Vietnam, he was promoted to major general during a ceremony on April 30, 1970, at the Pentagon. In May 1970, he assumed command of the 1st Cavalry Division in Vietnam.

      On July 7, 1970, he was killed in a helicopter crash in South Vietnam when the UH-1H Huey helicopter he was piloting hit a mountain due to poor weather near Bao Luc as he was en route to Cam Ranh to visit wounded troops.
