Postscript on the Greyhound beheading
Or, if the Greyhound beheader (see my preceding posting), Vince Weiguang Li, is not a Muslim, his Asian ethnicity might raise the parallel problem that has become problematic for the West in general, and America in particular—that of indiscriminate immigration.
The grisly Li murder and his Asian ethnicity reminds one of the case back in 2004 when an immigrant from Laos, a member of the Hmong tribe named Chia Soua Vang, hunted down and shot six Americans to death in a forest in Wisconsin. According to this report, several thousand Hmong people immigrated to the United States, mostly in the Wisconsin and Minnesota areas, after the Communists took control of Laos in 1975, following our ill-advised departure from the Vietnam War.
To think that suburban and quasi-rural areas of Wisconsin, for example, superior in civilization to the jungles of Laos and its regressive tribal societies, can absorb thousands of backward Hmong without tragic incidents like this is part of the insanity of politically correct multi-culturalism (PC MC) and one of its corollary pathologies, its policy of indiscriminate immigration as a non-negotiable obligation for us, and some kind of inalienable right for non-Westerners, no matter their degree of savagery and/or inferiority to our ways. This relates to the problem of Islam and to the problem of the West’s inability to rationally deal with the menace of Islam, insofar as they all emanate out of the same PC MC paradigm.
Update: With regard to Internet rumors that Vince Weiguang Li told police that he is a Chinese Muslim and that his motive for the murder was the Koran, see Lawrence Auster’s essay on this at his blog, as well as this page of Google search results.
