Expert: “Political Correctness” Gives Jihadists Their Power


According to Dr. James Mitchell, one of the terror experts who interrogated 9/11 architect Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, Islamic attacks like the one in Berlin Monday are made possible by liberals who are too weak-willing to take the necessary steps to protect their citizens. In an interview on Fox News’s “Kelly File,” Mitchell said things would only turn around for the West when political leaders stopped treating Islam with kid gloves.

“[It] was political correctness and their unwillingness to get this person out of their country who had no business being there because he didn’t have the right paperwork to prove who he was,” Mitchell said of suspected Berlin jihadist Anis Amri.

Mitchell said that his interviews with Mohammad gave him insight into the strategic goals behind terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda and ISIS. Even in the wake of a devastating, world-changing attack like the one he orchestrated, Mohammad told Mitchell that he had come to see the value of small-scale “lone wolf” attacks. He said he had been particularly impressed by the 2002 D.C. sniper shootings.

“For him, what surprised him was how much paralysis it caused given how few deaths were involved, few from his perspective,” Mitchell said. “And what he said to me was our civil liberties and our openness and our willingness to be responsive to other peoples’ cultures were weaknesses and flaws that his God, Allah, had put into the American culture so that we could be defeated.”

Now, to extract value from the rantings of an Islamic terrorist, you have to separate the kernel of truth from the insanity. Obviously, Allah did not give Americans civil liberties or cultural tolerance. Nor can those traits be seen as flaws. Now, sometimes those terms are used to describe things that are not what they appear to be, but in their purest forms, there’s nothing wrong with them.

That said, there’s a difference between compassion and stupidity. It would be compassionate if you were to offer a homeless man a hot meal and a couple of bucks. It would be stupid if you approached a drug-addled psycho in the middle of the night and offered him an overnight stay in your bedroom. You can exercise kindness and offer help without being suicidal about it.

This is the bright center line in the highway that people like Barack Obama and Angela Merkel can’t seem to see. Or they know they’re veering into oncoming traffic and they just don’t care. Either way, it has the same effect.

Mitchell said he was optimistic about the Trump administration.

“I hope there’s gonna be change, because here’s the way political correctness works for a guy like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed,” he said. “It allows them to operate in our midst without being challenged.”

    This man has it right. Political correctness has ruined this country and will continue to if it isn’t stopped dead in its tracks. Trump says he has no time for such nonsense; maybe he will make a difference.

    • He’s got time & if not he’ll take time.

    • Mathew Molk

      PC is going down by the second. The bullshit is finely on the way out.

  • Attilathehun

    I see some truth in this article. But I also believe the Obama Administration has goals that are anti American. He, on purpose, is trying to diminish US power and influence in the world.

    Merry Christmas to everyone on this official Holiday of the United State Of American. And to my Jewish friends I wish you a happy and prosperous Hanukkah. To my peaceful Muslim friends I wish happy holidays. Allahu Akbar. We do in fact worship the same God.

  • Albert L Biele

    Actually, it’s Obama who gives the Jihadists their power; he gave them Iraq, when we pulled out, then he have our worst enemy 1.6 billion and the Nuke, and then he freed the terrorist in Guantanamo to have second-shot at killing Americans. (Noting that we were still at war)– and don’t forget the RED-LINE. It appears that he’s their leader. I wonder how long it’s going to take Congress to figure this out!!!!

  • Everett Dickens

    The man is right, when we get rid of stupid leaders, and we just did, perhaps our new leaders will put aside foolish things and start making life difficult for the terrorists. You cannot peacefully coexist with someone that is committed to destroying you, that is beyond foolishness, basically liberal stupidity. Well we have suffered under that idiocy and now that we have a real man in charge once more, the chance is there to deal effectively with these animals. Probably insulting animals in using that term, perhaps the german term, untermensch, subhuman would be more discriptive. Noticed this week that a islamic couple rigged their 7 year old daughter with a bomb and sent her into a police station to kill some officers, this is not the action of a rational human being. So we are told that these are peace loving people, lies seem to abound.

  • Everett Dickens

    For the last 8 years we have been given the liberal approach to dealing with terrorism and suffered accordingly. Now is the time to begin anew and deal with them as people that love our country. No longer will we have a wimp telling us that is all our fault because they want to destroy us. It is time for us to begin a program of search and destroy toward the islamic terrorists. Find their nests and destroy their nests, the only ones that should be fearful are the terrorists. But to accomplish that one has to have a real leader, well it seems as though we now have one and that is delightful to all of us, except the liberals and some turncoats. But such fools need to be ignored and bringing back American pride needs to happen. God bless America!!!

  • The liberals with their “political correctness” agenda with their thinking that our enemies will stop being our enemies if we are “kind” to them will destroy America if they are allowed to continue.

    • Mathew Molk

      I have a much better idea…Kill your enemies and they will never be a problem.

      No PC needed.

    The legislature needs to put a sock in BO’s mouth. This traitorous Aleppo-Benghazi- president is seeking to leave a mess when he leaves. Where is the UN treaty for small guns ban he was sneaking through?
    BO,HC, and soros offer us a future of PC, islamic, koran, s. law continued take over with no boarders. They are again diverting us away from the islamic coupe by this traitorous president and his heir apparent from the clinton cartel. How can suporters of this coupe not understand the intent of the koranists in our subjugation. And subjugation it will be for that is what islamic means. What huministic blinders keep them from seeing their-our future offered by OBAMA or HILLERY. This is what this election is all about, the refudeation of world domination by the KORANISTS. The liberal protesters are violent in support of the KORAN. The MSM lies are in support of the KORAN. The assention of Queen Hillery is in support of the KORAN. The swamp of liberial-obama-clinton cartel-soros for the KORAN is being filled by current MSM retoric so that the DEPLORABLES loose sight of the COUPE and its intended purpose. OUR SUBJUGATION. Merry Christmas, PC that BO-the-Benghazi-Aleppo-president. Hillary for jail. Asset forfeiture for Clinton foundation. Deport Soros to Russia. Build your cabinet president-Trump and hold their feed to the fire as we hold yours TTF.

  • runningbear

    The koran declares war fare on none believers. The koran is not so much a religion as a form of government. The koran would seek the down fall of the US gov. Then why haven’t they been prosecuted, by laws or by lead? If any US citizen openly declared for the violent down fall of our government, the response would be immediate.
    BO’s PC agenda gives the green light to these cells, enclaves, hives and support of the war-declaring koran paints him as a traitorist president with this agenda for over 8 years.
    O ya MERRY CHRISTMAS from the one nation under God to “The false prophet” of the KORANISTS. That done back to war that was declared first by BO’s koran hugging liberals. PC that

  • runningbear

    Sense bush-clinton cartel became active We have formed watch groups moving the counter coupe forward. These watch groups are more important then ever. No violence is advocated and below the radar membership, no lists and no party affiliation. The koran-ist work in groups for strength. They also will win the war with their “seed”, rapid increase in population, guided by Imam-koran, “absolute obedience”. Our needed push back will seem illegal and unconstitutional and they will use that against us. We may be facing a 100 year war which is nothing to the koran-ist-false prophet’s time line.
    MERRY CHRISTMAS, Let Obama-the-Koran-ist PC that. One Nation Under One God until the false prophet is buried in unhallowed soil, than believe or don’t believe what you want. “if they can”t cut our hands they will kiss them until they can. CODE RED

  • Sandra Lee Smith

    He nailed it! PC is a deadly mental and spiritual poison that is destroying our nation from within. It allows Jihadis and other sinners to run rampant and roughshod over Americans and western Europeans who are too afraid to speak truth any longer, let alone act on it, for fear of hurting feelings. So what is “dead” because you refused to act or speak? Because that is what PC will get you!

  • O’bama is as bad as the Clintons in other words terrible!

  • Unless a person of Arabic descent absolutely rejects the religion of death, the rest of the world will be in turmoil with them. They have moved out of the middle east to destroy those that are not muslem. Sounds like the middle ages all over again. By their book of religious laws, They are allowed to lie about anything as long as it supports whatever Mohammed required. If they refuse to eat a ham sandwich, Shoot them and toss them in a burial trench, just like we would if they had an incurable infectious disease. It will get worse before life returns to normal.

  • Chet

    I would go further – Political Correctness is what gives liberals credibility to assert their leftist agenda. An insidious process: It starts with guilt and ends with compliance to their objective.

  • John P. Centonze

    There must be a progressive think tank that sits around all day and wonders; ” What should we push to be offensive next?”
    I couldn’t believe it when I recently looked-up the term “Middle East”! The source said it was a term that is becoming politically incorrect! What the heck is offensive about “Middle East”? Secondly, how does something be in a state of BECOMING politically incorrect? Either it is incorrect or it isn’t!

  • Michelle Castleberry

    Political Correctness I believe is responsible for others not to reach out to others. I know that I am uncomfortable about possibly saying something wrong to a person of color and therefor I just don’t say anything. That isn’t right either, to be so afraid to offend that you say nothing. I might be missing out on meeting a good friend but I have been so brain washed with this PC crap that now I am TOO SCARED to say anything. Anyone else experience this?

  • Paul

    They are taught to kill christians,Jews,anyone that doesn’t follow Islam domination is every Islamic right peaceful Islam do not report terrorist ,radical Islam same goal Sharia law globle domination it’s in the Koran radical is spreading anyway beheading,stabbing,shooting,burning peaceful Islam let radical Islam take are of it.erradicae Islam it’s 666 number of pages in the Koran.

  • John Beach

    Political correctness is nothing more or less than the abuse of power, the maligning of words, a euphemistic characterization of a doubtful reality, in the hope that the glass “half-full” will seem more attractive and innocuous than the glass “half-empty,” the mollification of the harshness of evil and an attempted diversion from the ominous odds of its potential actually affecting any one of us. The notion that the universal application of the benevolence of government will prevail despite the liberal definition of “benevolence.”
    Every time someone is tempted to open his mouth and utter some politically correct statement, s/he needs to consider the essence of the Secret Service. Political correctness, in defiance of the law, is not an option.

  • Islam owns Democrats

    Political correctness does pay a role. But why do you need PC when you have the Saudis, the number one exporter of Islamic Extremism and home of Mecca, filling our leader’s pockets with loads of money. The Saudis funded 20% of Clinton’s campaign, had a huge insider in the form of Huma Abedin and supported Obama financially long before he got into office. Its a simple case of not biting the hand that feeds. What did these promise in exchange for all that money?

  • Janice Dougherty

    And many of our religious institutions are a big part of the problem.
