The Left Trashes Cruz & Belgium's 9/11

Editors Note:  Previously the Left and even GOP candidates and the GOP establishment were trashing Trump's Ban on Muslims.
Gatestone Institute noted, "On December 7, 2015, U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign released a press statement calling "for a complete and total shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our representatives can figure out what is going on." He was publicly saying what an increasing number of Americans over the years have apparently begun to think about Muslims and Islam in terms of the "clear and present" danger to their security and their country."Today, Gary Bauer notes it is the "Left" trashing Ted Cruz for his response regarding the "Islamist attacks in Brussels."

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: The Left Trashes Cruz - Responding to the Islamist attacks in Brussels yesterday, Senator Ted Cruz said that law enforcement in this country should more closely monitor Muslim neighborhoods for signs of extremism. Predictably, he is being hammered today by left-wing activists and their media allies. Cruz's comment was labeled "incendiary," "un-American," "dangerous" and "racism-fueled xenophobia."

Some even suggested that American Muslims are not like those in Europe. One commentator dared Senator Cruz to "name one community, one city where we have a large group of radicalized Muslims." How about Minneapolis?

The first question we should be asking is, "In which communities do we have radicalized mosques?" There are many. Mosques built with Saudi money often have imams trained in radical Islamic theology.

It is amazing how far we have drifted since 9/11. We used waterboarding after 9/11 and it saved lives. Now elite opinion insists that waterboarding is beyond the pale. But beyond that, we have drifted so far from a wartime mentality that we can't even get an iPhone opened.

After the San Bernardino attack, we learned that there was a monitoring program in place that might have prevented that attack. But the Obama Administration shut it down over fears of profiling.

There were plenty of warnings about the Fort Hood shooter, Nidal Hasan. But our military leaders were too worried about their careers, too afraid of left-wing political orthodoxy to do anything about it.

Who in the government was fired after the Fort Hood attack? Who was fired after the Boston Marathon bombing? Who was fired after the Chattanooga shooting? Who was fired after San Bernardino?

Here's the bottom line: There is no price to be paid if the government fails to stop an attack. But anyone who dares to suggest steps that might prevent terrorist attacks is likely to pay a heavy price in public scorn and ridicule.

Belgium's 9/11 - Belgium is a relatively small European nation with a population of 11 million people. The United States has roughly 30 times Belgium's population. Comparing the casualties proportionally to our respective populations would be like the U.S. suffering more than 900 people dead and 6,000 wounded.

My point is this: Yesterday's attack in Brussels, the headquarters of NATO, was Belgium's 9/11. And that event warranted only 51 seconds of Barack Obama's time yesterday. After a brief press conference in Havana, the president took in a baseball game. He even did the wave with Raul Castro.

This is not evidence of Obama being tone deaf or frivolous. He is a very serious man. This is his approach to Islamic terror -- ignore it as an inconvenient distraction.

As he told ESPN yesterday, "You want to be respectful and understand the gravity of the situation. But the whole premise of terrorism is to try to disrupt people's ordinary lives."

Major terrorist attacks be damned. Nothing is going to stop Obama from going to that ball game! How respectful and understanding is that? By the way, at least a dozen Americans were injured in the attacks.

When our enemies strike us or our allies, Obama's life should be disrupted by planning how to strike back!

Yucking it up with a communist dictator on a day of such tragedy fits Obama's pattern. After the Benghazi attacks, Obama made a brief statement and then flew off for a fundraiser.

Obama dismissed ISIS as a "junior varsity team." After the Charlie Hebdo attacks, world leaders streamed to Paris to march arm-in-arm. But not Obama. This is a deliberate effort to downplay and ignore the threat of radical Islamic terrorism.
