Let’s Just Blame the Muslims

Friday, November 6th, 2009

Major Nidal Malik Hasan, 39, a U.S. citizen born in Virginia to Jordanian parents, murdered 13 soldiers yesterday in Fort Hood, Texas. Major Hasan was a Muslim with strong cultural and religious beliefs.  He didn’t want to go to war, flipped out, and started killing American soldiers.  Basically, he seems to be your garden variety nutcase who went on a mass murder spree.

Of course every moron with internet access immediately started blaming Muslims in general for the tragedy. One goober even suggested America should put them all in detention camps like we did to the Japanese in WW II. Even though countless Muslim organizations denounced the atrocity in the harshest terms, to some people, “a Muslim is a Muslim is a Muslim.”

Before you go demanding Muslims be jailed, perhaps you should consider a dozen of our most recent mass murders – and the religions of the killers:

April 3, 2009: A 41-year-old man killed 13 immigrants in Binghamton, NY. No Religion Specified.

March 10, 2009: Michael McLendon, 28, killed 10 people then committed suicide. Christian.

Feb. 14, 2008: Steven Kazmierczak, 27, killed five students and then committed suicide. Christian.

Dec. 5, 2007: Robert A. Hawkins, 19 killed eight people. And then committed suicide. No Religion Specified.

April 16, 2007: Cho Seung-Hui, 23, fatally shot 32 people in a dorm and then killed himself in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Probably Buddist or Hindu.

Feb. 12, 2007: 18-year-old Sulejman Talovic killed five people and was then killed by police. No Religion Specified.

Oct. 2, 2006: Charles Carl Roberts IV, 32, killed five girls and then killed himself. Amish.

March 21, 2005: 16-year-old student Jeffrey Weise killed sixteen before killing himself.  No Religion Specified.

March 12, 2005: Terry Ratzmann, 44, gunned down seven members of his church before killing himself. Christian.

July 29, 1999: Mark Barton, 44, killed nine people and then committed suicide. No Religion Specified.

April 20, 1999: Students Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17, opened fire at Columbine High School, killing 12 classmates and a teacher before committing suicide. Both were raised Christians.

October 16, 1991: George Hennard, 35, smashed his pickup truck through a Luby’s Cafeteria window in Killeen, Texas, and killed 22 people. Christian.

And no, I haven’t forgotten the worst mass murder in recent times, the horror that occurred on 911.  The terrorists were Muslim (all citizens of our best allies in the Mid-East) who plotted for years for this one huge action.

Can America protect itself  from similar terrorist plots?  We could have – had we not wasted 1-TRILLION DOLLARS on two hopeless wars.
