At Last Purple Hearts for Ft. Hood

In the war on terror finally the Army from the PC world did depart
Five years later, the victims of the Ft. Hood shootings will receive their Purple Hearts
Finally the myth of “workplace violence” we can now discard
Victims will get benefits to restore lives forever marred
It is one thing to be shot in combat by the other side
Another when it is your own officer whose devotion to radical Islam he did not hide
Major Hassan on that fatal day
Wounded 30 GIs and 13 more did slay
Screaming “Allahu Akbar”
Trying to become the new martyr star
Justice for the victims and their families has taken far too long
The label of workplace violence was stupid and morally wrong
Obama cannot bring himself to recognize evil even when it is Allahu Akbar in one’s face
But he can compare the Crusades and the Inquisition and call out acts in the name of Christ to our moral ground debase.
