West need to wake up, stop poisoning of our culture

"The opportunity to secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself." — Sun Tzu

In light of the recent incident at Fort Hood, I think it's time we as the West wake up and realize what we are dealing with. Our obsession with political correctness and bending our culture for every person who comes to us is finally catching up with us and threatens to destroy our society. We accept everything and everyone at face value without the slightest thought of long-term consequences.

The easiest way to explain away this terrible act of terrorism is to muse that it was committed by an over-exhausted soldier who couldn't handle the pressures of the army.

But looking deeper into the matter, we see this was likely a premeditated act of hostility towards the United States and the West, in general. We've been attacked externally, but now a more troubling possibility, being destroyed from within.

We as the "enemy" of Islam are providing the opportunity for our defeat. We've accepted these people into our society and put them on a pedestal and respected each and every one of their views regardless of how much they might clash with our cultural views. We tippy-toe around touchy subjects as to not offend anyone, scorning anyone who doesn't blindly go along, as intolerant.

We are slowly becoming infiltrated by radical Muslims who are ingraining their views on to impressionable youths and spreading hateful ideology while we blindly stand by doing nothing to stop them.

We have built a double standard in our culture; the majority is quick to punish and make examples of Christians, who are trying to practise their faith in the public square, and label them intolerant and hateful. But when an imam used a hateful slur, last week in Toronto, no one was there to investigate the hate crime committed or condemn this hateful outburst.

The enemy has found a way to destroy our society without the use of weapons, instead through ideology and general Western complacency, to spread their hateful ideology across the globe.

We need to wake up and start taking action to stop the poisoning of our culture and to apply the same rules of hate crimes to everyone. Be white, black, Christian, Muslim, whomever it may be we need one standard.
