A story in the newspapers had the familiar headline. Potential terrorist targets military recruiting stations. The suspect lived in Baltimore and had a hispanic name. The story in the MSM also reported some grudge against the Armed forces. Most of us have issues with our employers at times but a detail seemed missing.
Searching the familiar blogs we learn the suspect was a recent convert to Islam. Of course this fact was omitted in the MSM accounts for reasons.
Those of you who have read the writings of Stephen Schwartz are familiar with the scandals of the types of Imams being assigned to prisons. The common bad joke in NYC is that the person's new religion is prislam. We almost can go to the circular chicken and egg bit if violent types are attracted to this radical form of Islam or if radical Islam merely brings out the worst in marginal types. The suspect had a criminal past that predated the conversion and was not exactly Pat Boone or Wally Cleaver.
At a point that long has since passed we need to get serious about this problem. The media portrayals of some of these suspects as mental health defectives also misses the mark. Potential attacks on the military should be treated as capital crimes and carry the death penalty. Of course previous communist criminals like Bill Ayers have set bad precedents. This suspect should immediately embrace Marx and apply for a job in higher ed and claim Bill Ayers as a role model.
