Trust hateful right-wing ideologues and inveterate Islamophobes like Michelle Malkin to exploit the tragedy at Fort Hood for their own cynical purposes — in this case to not only demonize all Muslims, but also to broadly denounce the “false god” of cultural “diversity” (which is kind of ironical considering the source). Also nice how she snuck in a little Nazi reference there…
Perhaps a more sensible response might be that of Sean Linnane (pseudonym of a retired U.S. Army Special Forces Combat Diver, NCO now serving in other capacities…) who argued that focusing on a murderer’s creed misses the point:
Terrorists all the same, regardless of ideological or political stance – that is all posturing. Example: in the 1980s the Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya mounted a bombing campaign against U.S. and British targets in Europe. Several of the bombings were carried out on their behalf by the Baader-Meinhof gang, a secular group of Communists…It doesn’t matter whether it’s Islamic-themed, or Neo-Nazi, or Communist-inspired, terrorism is always the same: it is sheer lunacy, plain and simple.
The fact of the matter is that fanatical zealotry and other such varieties of mental derangement come in all forms.
