On ABC's "This Week," Army chief of staff Gen. George Casey said that although what happened at Fort Hood was a tragedy, "I believe it would be an even greater tragedy if our diversity becomes a casualty here," reports the Washington Times.
I'm sorry, but this smacks of politically correct nonsense. And it's dangerous, to boot. The United States is founded upon the Declaration of Independence, not upon declarations of diversity. The difference in concept and practice is immense.
It's the difference between a George Washington who respects the Constitution and the Declaration and the unique Creator upon whom the content of liberty rests, as opposed to an Obama regime that rejects these foundations and rushes to remake America in the image of race, class, gender, and other passionate envys.
And note the result. While these "diversities" divide and conquer, there is a unity that grows in power: The Washington-centric federal state reigns supreme over all.
You may not hear this on the evening news, but in the hands of pretend gods, diversity is a weakness. And the worship of it seems a surefire way to lose the war on terror. Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan and the "Allahu Akbar" people probably like that.
Diversity rightly understood can be a strength, but that kind of diversity does not grow on just any tree in the forest. You need the tree of liberty, rooted in the Creator's soil, just like the Founders said.
If the Fort Hood massacre can help remind Americans of who we are, where we came from, and why that matters, then the unnecessary sacrifice of these soliders -- each one of them created in the image of God -- will not have been in vain.
