The Wages of Non-Judgmentalism

“See something? Say something.” Easier said than done.

There is a fundamental contradiction at the heart of daily American life. It’s one that undermines the role that citizen sentinels are obliged to serve in the collective effort to combat low-tech aspiring terrorists who may be operating independent of a foreign or domestic extremist network. At once, Americans are supposed to be vigilant and unafraid to express to authorities their fears when they believe someone is behaving abnormally and may represent a threat. At the same time, however, society frowns on those who are perceived as judgmental.

    Judgmentalism saves lives while non-judgmentalism can get you killed.

    One might also wonder what the left elites find so attractive about the large numbers of islamists it seeks to foist on western societies. Once past their undoubted talents at demolition, mass rape, and mass murder of helpless people, the talent cupboard seems somewhat bare.

    Every day we see something. When we say something, every cockroach comes out of the woodwork to scream, “islamophobe, homophobe”, or “racist” just for starters. From the President on up. Isn’t it strange that the first screams I heard from the multi-whatever crowd directed towards a real hater occurred at a nightclub? Next came Obama the Worthless. Very revealing stuff ain’t it!
