Fox News’ in-house eugenicist Brian Kilmeade had a provocative suggestion this morning, on his network’s A.M. comedy show: “KILMEADE: Do you think it’s time for the military to have special debriefings of Muslim Army officers — anybody enlisted?…Because if I’m going to be deployed in a foxhole, if I’m going to be sticking in an outpost, I got to know the guy next to me is not going to want to kill me.” Got to know it, man, Brian’s just got to know it.
BUT WAIT, Gretchen Wilson would like to put it another way: what Brian means is, why did the liberals do this?
Could it be that out military was also exercising political correctness — even though he had a poor performance report, even though he spoke openly about being a radical and had those supposed postings online — could it be that the military was exercising political correctness in not approaching as seriously as they would have if he had not been a Muslim?
WAIT, let us put it another way: is there maybe perhaps possibly a clause in the House health care bill ordering Muslim soldiers to do this regularly? Is this what they mean by “opt-out” public option?
[Sigh.] The great James Fallows had a great take on the shootings, which he would, because he is the great James Fallows! It is terrible when shootings happen, and authorities should try to figure out why these shootings happen, and do what they can to prevent them from happening again, but usually what happens — whether it’s this or George Tiller or whatever — is someone has one political view or another and is insane and has access to weapons. We don’t need a major change in federal policy every time the downside risks of an open society materialize.
