Remember how Dragnet’s Joe Friday used to say, “Just the facts, ma’am, just the facts”? Poor ol’ Joe probably wouldn’t cut it in policing today with all the political-correctness that infects police forces.
Actually, you can’t even call a police force a police force anymore. It’s a “service” now, like a dry cleaning shop or something. As for facts, you’re not supposed to stick to them if those facts are politically incorrect or insensitive.
Watch as I offer a case in point by taking a look at the RCMP’s new “Terrorism and Violent Extremism Awareness Guide.”
When you think of terrorism, you probably think of a particular group given all the post-9/11 carnage but the RCMP’s guide does NOT focus on radical Islam.
That’s because, as top Mountie Fontaine said:
“We don’t want people to think terrorism is only related to people who convert to Islam.”
This, despite the fact that a recent study indicates “religious” (i.e. Islamist) terrorism is the number one terror concern in Canada today, with the greatest threat coming from “individuals inspired and directed by ISIL.”
Canadian Muslims who reject extremism and terrorism should be the most offended by this PC nonsense considering that the biggest victims of Islamist terrorism are Muslims.
So who is the RCMP trying to protect from being offended? The Islamists themselves and their useful idiots on the left?
