I remember during my tenure working for Uncle Sam in the Military that it was said, quite frequently and openly, that workplace “SAFETY PROCEDURES AND GUIDELINES WERE WRITTEN IN BLOOD” mostly because of inept Government bureaucracy. As a young whippersnapper, I did not quite understand what that meant, until I saw, first hand a man get electrocuted due to improper safety guidelines regarding a power panel lock out. Though hopeful Uncle Sam has changed his ways regarding safety on the job, he and all his cronies still fail miserably issuing timely, concise WARNINGS regarding PUBLIC SAFETY.
The 2013 FBI National Threat Assessment for Domestic Extremism recently published, purposely omits any mention of the threat of acts of terrorism by radical islamist. Instead, they tell the American people with a straight face that they should instead focus on the threats posed by “anti-government militia” groups and “white supremacist”. Really?
Well, surprise, surprise, Uncle Sam and his FBI got it wrong… AGAIN.
Yesterday, September 26th, in Oklahoma, Alexander (Alton) Nolen, a recent convert and openly practicing muslim, went on a work-place rampage at Vaughan Foods, stabbing two women and then beheading one of them. He was stopped by the heroic efforts of the COO and off-duty country reserve deputy, Mark Vaughan.
And if that tragedy was not enough, the lib-tard media (led by the Government) immediately went to great lengths to try to distance Nolen from anything resembling terrorism or radical islam, despite the fact that he had on a number of occasions, tried to convert fellow workers to islam and displayed on his facebook page, for all to see, were numerous red flags, the most glaring being this statement: “The Statue of Liberty is going into flames, she and anybody with her..”
And to top all this non-sense off, here is a SEVERE CASE of DEJA-VU FOR YOU: “Authorities” are calling the incident in Oklahoma a case of “WORKPLACE VIOLENCE?”..sound familiar? Think back to Fort Hood, 2009…..
As responsible CO’s, we cannot afford to have such short and conveniently blank memories when it comes to TERRORIST KILLING AMERICANS ON IT’S OWN SOIL.“Remember 9/11” used to be a very popular bumper sticker. Then slowly, but surely, as time marched on, people forgot; people moved on; they got distracted and terrorism got put on the back burner. Then in 2009, The Fort Hood Shootings Happened. Thirteen Americans Dead and Thirty wounded. And for the first time, America would see this administration do the much to be repeated “Potomac Two-Step”: a time-honored political tradition in Washington, where anybody speaking to the press is commanded to avoid using any phrases or semblance of words that would connect Hasan to being a terrorist or that the shootings were intended as a Terrorist act. As a final act of denial, the DOD (with strong urging of the White House) finally ruled that the Fort Hood Shootings were a terrible act of “Workplace Violence”. It would later be revealed that a Joint-Terrorism Task Force were aware of several emails between Hasan and Al-Qaeda connected Iman Anwar al-Awlaki (who would later be killed in a Drone Hellfire Missle Strike in 2011).
CO’s, It’s time to get REAL, Even if the Government Is Not!
Never mind that the President, his administration and all of the sheeple that follow him that want to try to ignore or make excuses for RADICAL ISLAM….Just because you call something by a different name like “Workplace Violence” does not change the fact that the threat posed by islamic terrorist is OBVIOUS and presents a CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE SECURITY OF THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES.
Train Hard and Don’t be a Statistic.
