Congress failed to defend western civilization

Congress narrowly rejects proposal for military to conduct a 'strategic assessment' of Islam
The Pentagon won’t be conducting a threat assessment of Islam after all.

Tucked into a massive military spending bill was a provision that would have required the Department of Defense to study “the use of violent or unorthodox Islamic religious doctrine to support extremist or terrorist messaging.” A narrow majority of the U.S. House of Representatives — including all but one of the members from Minnesota — stripped that proposal out of the bill on Friday.

The idea of government scrutinizing people’s faith, rather than their actions, “goes against everything we strive to be,” said U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, a Minneapolis DFLer and the first Muslim elected to Congress.

The amendment to the $696 billion National Defense Authorization Act asked military and outside experts to identify “Islamic religious doctrines, concepts, or schools of thought used by various extremist groups” and then come up with ways to counter them.
Sun Wu, the military sage, wrote that we must know our enemy. The enemy is radical Islam. You cannot win if you don't know what you are fighting. Political correctness is endangering western civilization. Abetting its downfall is America's let as represented by the Democratic Party.
