The deaths in Paris were appalling but even to the PC crowd hopefully a wake up alarm
We are in a war simply stated with Islamic extremists that want to do us great bodily harm
Worse they want Sharia and our basic fundamental rights to suppress
When will the Obamas and Howard Deans of this nation start to this problem address?
Killing the journalists at Charlie Hebdo was a direct assault on the freedom of the press
Killing due to a cartoon was clearly fanaticism in mortal and barbaric excess
The Washington Post published one of the cartoons not to Muslims inflame
Or their faith to somehow defame
Rather to make a point that freedom of press and expression is a right we hold dear
And from fanatics we should not live our lives in constant fear
What is next--no more editorials heaping on jihad rightful condemnation and blame?
No more stories of beheadings by ISIS while they continue to kill and maim?
Obama needs to open his eyes to see the jihadist world as it exists today
Not as a vision of what he believes it should display
“Nous sommes tout Charlie Hebdo” should be all of humanity’s cry
As united we embark upon a Crusade to insure Sharia and jihad withers and dies
