The liberal fixation with (politically correct) narrative

Or consider the sweet little old Mormon matron from Salt Lake City headed to Omaha to visit her grandkiddies. Compare her to the twenty-something Egyptian male from Cairo bound for New York City.

Who is more likely to be a terrorist? Clearly, the probability is going to be very low in both cases, but in which case will it be lower? You know the answer.

Liberals know it too, but they don’t want to admit it. The answer doesn’t fit their ‘narrative.’ According to the narrative, we are all the same despite our wonderful diversity. We are all equally inclined to commit terrorist acts. Well, I wish it were true. But it is not true.

Liberals know it is not true just as well as we conservatives do. But they can’t admit that it is true because it would upset their ‘narrative.’ And that narrative is what they live for and—may well die for. A terrorist ‘event’ may well be coming to a theater near them, especially if they live in New York City.
