The New York Police Department has become the latest agency fighting to keep citizens safe to suffer from the political correctness movement.
Law enforcement agencies across the country, including the FBI, have been told they must get rid of vital training materials and tactics as they are now deemed to be offensive to Muslims.
Following the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, New York City police officers began increased training in counter-terrorism and undercover investigations to prevent further attacks.
However, under the Obama administration, and with outcries of racial profiling and ethnic targeting, the NYPD is now being told to cease the use of many of their training materials, as the liberal left claims it targets Muslims.
Judicial Watch reports:
“Muslim rights groups, especially the terrorist front organization Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), have proven they wield tremendous power in the Obama administration. This is especially true when it comes to the way the nation’s law enforcement agencies conduct anti-terrorism training. In fact, it was CAIR that got the FBI to purge anti-terrorism material determined to be offensive to Muslims.”
Time and time again, Americans have seen rising terrorist activity committed by radicalized jihadists from the Middle East who come into the U.S and quietly build sleeper cells while recruiting mostly young men to their cause.
The NYPD, in particular, has come under fire in the form of lawsuits by the Muslim community.
Instead of being able to do their jobs — keeping Americans safe in their city — officers are being given sensitivity training and being told to stop surveillance of Muslims in the city.
Ironically, these changes come as threats of terrorist activities by radicalized Muslims have increased, with the NYPD’s tactics paying off by discovering these potential threats before they are carried out.
Judicial Watch reported:
“The settlement stems from a 2013 lawsuit filed by three New York Muslims, two mosques and a Muslim nonprofit accusing the NYPD of “discriminatory surveillance” after 9/11. Muslim communities and their institutions were singled out and officers and informants were deployed to mosques to surveil innocent religious leaders and followers, the lawsuit alleges. The department also employed invasive tactics to spy on area Muslims, according to the complaint. The now-censored report “stigmatizes an entire faith community and invites discrimination,” the Muslim plaintiffs claim in their suit. The 90-page NYPD report says that most Islamic terrorists in the West start as “unremarkable people” who become religious and radical in a four-stage process.”
Once again under the Obama administration, the “hurt feelings” of some are jeopardizing the safety and security of all the American public.
Although the NYPD is the latest agency to come under fire, other departments across the nation have been feeling the pressure by “offended” immigrants to stop any investigations that appears to focus on a racial or ethnic group — even if a particular group has been shown to be participating in suspicious activity.
Judicial Watch reported:
“CAIR and its allies also got several police departments in President Obama’s home state of Illinois to cancel essential counterterrorism courses over accusations that the instructor was anti-Muslim. The course was called “Islamic Awareness as a Counter-Terrorist Strategy” and departments in Lombard, Elmhurst and Highland Park caved into CAIR’s demands. Just a few months ago Islamic activists got the FBI to suspend a new internet program aimed at preventing the radicalization of youth because Muslim and Arab rights groups determined that it discriminates against Muslims and will lead to bullying, bias and religious profiling of students.”
The inability of the NYPD, and law enforcement agencies across the country, to investigate potential terror threats is putting all Americans at risk.
The open-borders globalists seem to think it is more important to keep immigrants from feeling targeted than it is to stop potentially deadly attacks before they occur.
Under Obama and the leftist social justice movement, law enforcement across the country has had their hands tied.
Police have been accused of racial profiling and targeting minorities while simply doing what they are supposed to do — protect all citizens.
It is only a matter of time before the decreased surveillance and investigation of suspicious individuals will lead to more loss of lives on American soil — due to the liberal left’s fear of anyone in the country being offended.
