In the wake of the Muslim terrorist attack on the gay/lesbian night club in Orlando, San Antonio’s local liberal-progressive politicians and media have been quick to further their agenda and blame conservatives, Republicans, and America.
Former SA mayor and current HUD secretary Julian Castro spoke about diversity. He said, “We’ve seen this way too many times, and we need to do something about it. It’s wonderful to see this many people express their love and respect for each other even though people have differences.”
However, Julian Castro ignores the fact that diversity has been used to divide, not unite, America. Because of diversity, “profiling” by law enforcement has become impossible. The Boston/Tsarnaev brothers bombing and the San Bernardino/Farook-Malik attacks were all on the law enforcement radar, but political correctness prevented both law enforcement and citizens from profiling and taking preventive action.
Congressman Joaquin Castro, Julian’s twin brother, said high-capacity weapons should be taken away from people who can inflict harm. “Congress should take action,” he said. “Congress is silently complicit by its inaction.” Democrat State Rep. Diego Bernal blamed the Republican-led state government for “inaction on gun control”. Apparently, Joaquin and Bernal feel that if guns were confiscated from law abiding citizens, criminals and terrorists would stop killing people.
SA police chief William McManus met with members of the LGBTQ community and said a new safety plans are place with more police presence in and around gay night clubs and community. But the SA police are already understaffed and over worked because the city is facing a dramatic spike in the crime and murder rate, and now they have one more responsibility on their plate.
Furthermore, the Castros and Bernal champion lax immigration policies which have permitted unknown numbers of illegal aliens to enter the country for who knows what purposes. Additionally, Chief McManus has an unofficial “Sanctuary City” policy that forbids officers from profiling or asking suspects about their immigration status.
LGBTQ community leaders are saying this is a “hate crime” and they are partly correct. This is a “hate-America” crime perpetrated by people who dislike our lifestyle and culture because it is based on personal freedoms and liberties.
This terrorist attack is more evidence of a war against western culture by people that use religion to justify dictatorship. As long as we have weak leaders who doubt their own nation’s history, culture and religious foundations, we cannot fight this enemy.
Let us remember truths regarding leadership taught in the Judeo-Christian scriptures that are the foundation of our culture and society. “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18), and “For if the trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?” (1 Corth.14:8).
Sadly, the current political leadership in America lacks a vision, and their trumpet sound is very uncertain.
This is a real war with Islamic extremism that seeks to impose its religion and culture on us with violence, and we must defend ourselves accordingly without shame or apology...regardless of what the local and national liberal-progressive politicians and press say.
