PC tragedy

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

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
