My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Tom Tancredo Holds His Line

In today's Denver Post, Tom Tancredo has attempted to defend his remarks last week that, in the aftermath of nuclear terrorism, we should bomb Mecca.

Many critics of my statements have characterized them as "offensive," and indeed they may have offended some. But in this battle against fundamentalist Islam, I am hardly preoccupied with political correctness, or who may or may not be offended. . .

Few can argue that our current approach to this war has deterred fundamentalists from killing Westerners - nor has it prompted "moderate" Muslims and leaders of Muslim countries to do what is necessary to crack down on the extremists in their midst who perpetuate these grisly crimes.

That being the case, perhaps the civilized world must intensify its approach.

Please, read the whole thing. That little excerpt does not quite convey the full sentiment of Rep. Tancredo. And then, for the counterpoint, tool on over to the newly remodeled site of Hugh Hewitt, who takes Tancredo quite to task for today's offering.
