Scania 18-wheel big rig at Berlin Christmas market attack, Monday, December 19th, where 12 people were killed and 56 injured by Anis Amri, ISIS-inspired Muslim terrorist. Amri was later shot and killed on Friday, December 23rd at a railway station near Milan by Italian police. Prints from the truck matched those of Amri.
They’ve show this to be the case time and again. Leftists here and abroad couldn’t care less if you or anyone else perishes because of their politically-correct belief systems. Their ideology trumps your safety any and every time.
German Politician Prevented Police Sharing Image of Christmas Market Attacker ‘to Prevent Racism’
by Victoria Friedman
German police and judiciary have accused Hamburg Justice Minister Till Steffen of delaying the release of pictures of the Christmas market attacker Anis Amri because he was worried about provoking “racist” comments on Facebook.
And completely logical, don’t you think? Weighing the search for a naked murderer against potential comments. Perfectly normal.
Green Party politician Steffen cited “privacy concerns” when he initially prevented law enforcers from releasing pictures of Anis Amri.
However, it has been claimed by members of the judiciary and the police that Steffen, who is the head of the judicial authority in Hamburg, denied the release of images of Amri because he was concerned it would incite racial hatred.
It is alleged that he only released images after a 12-hour delay following a call from German newspaper Bild.
“Privacy concerns.” Because, as anyone knows, all murder suspects deserve consideration of their privacy when being sought for the ultimate capital offense.
Parliamentary leader André Trepoll, who is a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, called “Scandalsenator” Steffen a “security risk” for delaying the search for the world’s most wanted man.
Accusing the Hamburg justice minister of “fetishising” data protection, Trepoll added: “Green data protection fetishism should not delay the public search for a terror suspect.”
That’s not the worst. Read on.
CDU judiciary spokesman Richard Seelmaeker called for a special meeting of the Justice Committee, stressing: “Anis Amri allegedly murdered twelve people, but instead of using all means necessary to search for him, Hamburg’s green justice senator was more concerned about the state of comments in a Facebook post – which hindered our police.”
Political correctness on the part of Leftists has crossed a line — a terrible line. To the point where Leftists in positions of power are now jeopardizing the safety and security of persons in lesser power who do not have their own personal security contingents, do not live in a bubble or behind gates or walls, aren’t insulated by money and power and surrounded by deference.
Leftists continue to prove that anyone and everyone can be sacrificed on their altar of ideology, as long as it serves their purposes of being politically-correct in any social or cultural situation. Common sense, logic, proportion, rationality, history and facts must never be allowed to stand in their way.
It is far past time for this madness to stop.
Perhaps this might change a bit in 2017.
