The Terrorist Response Road Not Taken December 5, 2015Posted by geoff in News.
You know, there are two ways to avoid hate crimes against Muslims in this country. The first, which I’ll call for simplicity the “stupid way,” is to bear down on the citizens of the United States to try to force them to comply. Needless to say, that’s the administration’s current approach.
The second approach, which is more traditional, is to convince the populace that the government understands their concerns and is taking decisive action to rectify the problem. And that the government is prioritizing their safety and quality of life. This reassures the citizenry that they need not take action themselves.
Sure would be nice if the general population of the US could get through a terrorist-inflicted tragedy without being lectured, threatened, and deprived of their rights.
