As an alumnus of Virginia Polytechnic Institute, presently referred to as Virginia Tech, I was appalled at the massacre by a resident alien madman. The question, of course, is how did it happen? The answer is political correctness, which is ultimately going to destroy this nation if it is not reversed.
First, Mr. Cho had no business on the street, much less on my campus. The fear of lawsuits and offending ethnic minorities has become the dominant force in our society. Otherwise, this individual would have become a permanent resident of a mental institution long ago. Second, if this individual confronted a classroom full of gray uniforms, the outcome would have been very different. This is the result, of course, of the demilitarization of my former school.
Third, the anti-gun lefties will have a field day with this one. However, the simple truth of the matter is that one armed student or faculty member in Norris Hall would have made a major difference in the casualty figures. This miscreant knew that he would be confronting unarmed victims, a fact blatantly obvious from his extensive planning.
Fourth, the talking heads mention the Koranic message on his arms, “Ishmael’s ax,” only in passing. Political correctness again at its worst. God forbid we should mention anything about Islam in the public forum.
Lastly, we must look at this incident for what it is. The victims are victims of America’s cancer, liberalism. David C. Tabor, MD Crossville, Tennessee
