Reader comment on item: When Osama bin Laden Becomes PC

The mindlessness behind the decision to fire Colin Rose over such an innocuous remark is a stunning indictment of how far down the rabbit hole of Political Correctness Britain has gone. Europe has followed the same path and we in North America seem to be scurrying along just as quickly. What is utterly lost on the fools who want to eliminate every anti-Muslim comment or thought in our society, in a manner befitting of George Orwell's writings, is that the the very same racism they wish to wipe out is deeply ingrained in these Muslims in prison, and many, many more who are not incarcerated.

Yet somehow, the vicious, incorrigible anti-Western hatred that has poisoned the hearts and minds of these people is overlooked, or rationalized away as the expected result of Western "racism" against Muslims. If we are at war with the radical factions of Islam, and I believe we are, then they have so little to do to destroy us. We are doing much of their work for them.
