[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.
“Lone-wolf”-style attacks have been discussed for more than a decade between Dr. Mitchell and Khalid Sheikh Mohammad. The conversation start with the 2002 D.C. sniper attacks. Mitchell recently told Sandra Smith from his conversation that:
For him, what surprised him was how much paralysis it caused given how few deaths were involved, few from his perspective. 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.
He said that like-minded jihadi brothers would immigrate to Western democracies and to the United States, they would wrap themselves in our civil liberties for protection,” Mitchell said, “they would support themselves in our welfare systems while they spread their jihadi message, and then, when the time was right, they would rise up and attack.”
Mitchell wrapped up the interview by talking about the recent election of Donald Trump as president:
“I hope there’s gonna be change, because here’s the way political correctness works for a guy like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed: It allows them to operate in our midst without being challenged.”
Quoting from a related article: “The Origins of Political Correctness” by Bill Lind about Political Correctness:
If we look at it analytically, if we look at it historically, we quickly find out exactly what it is. Political Correctness is cultural Marxism. It is Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. It is an effort that goes back not to the 1960s and the hippies and the peace movement, but back to World War I. If we compare the basic tenets of Political Correctness with classical Marxism the parallels are very obvious.
First of all, both are totalitarian ideologies. The totalitarian nature of Political Correctness is revealed nowhere more clearly than on college campuses, many of which at this point are small ivy covered North Koreas, where the student or faculty member who dares to cross any of the lines set up by the gender feminist or the homosexual-rights activists, or the local black or Hispanic group, or any of the other sainted “victims” groups that PC revolves around, quickly find themselves in judicial trouble. Within the small legal system of the college, they face formal charges – some star-chamber proceeding – and punishment. That is a little look into the future that Political Correctness intends for the nation as a whole.
