And yet, sixteen years after 9/11, here we were, in a European country where signaling virtue was more important than security, and where you could be excused for thinking Muslims were the only ones who had never attempted terror.
I’d like to say it’s not the same here, but I’ve been required to remove my shoes by TSA employees wearing face veils.
In the end, it comes down to this: as with the attempts to destroy the memory of 9/11, and erase our justified anger at it, our self-proclaimed elites would rather risk being blown to pieces than admit that there are threats to the West that come from people who originate from a different (and in their minds quaint and innocent) culture.
Free time? Some tools? Melt a bunch of coke cans and make a AR-15 lower.
