SURPRISE: New Year's Cancelled in Brussels Because... Islamic Extremism
Belgian authorities announced Tuesday they have arrested two men and seized military-type uniforms and Islamic State group propaganda in connection with a suspected plot to unleash holiday season attacks against police, soldiers and celebrated locations in Brussels.
The attacks under preparation "were the same style as those perpetrated in Paris Nov. 13," in which 130 people were killed and hundreds injured by suicide bombers and gunmen equipped with Kalashnikov-style assault rifles, according to an internal document from Belgian state security services cited by RTBF French-language television. Those lethal actions were claimed by the Islamic State extremist group.
Which of course leads to this...

Thankfully the Belgian police were able to uncover the plot before it was carried out, and I'm sure cancelling the New Year's activities was just a precautionary measure. It's good to feel like your government has a handle on your safety, since National Security is literally the one thing that is expected of them to be executed with marginal competency. Just like here in the United States...
Wait, those headlines are for real?
Hopefully this can be symbolic of ringing out the perverted, PC culture of 2015 and ringing in new, sensible policies that simultaneously aknowledge reality and make the world a safer place. One can hope.
Looking back, 2015 is the year PC liberalism's chickens came home to roost. We've enjoyed the lowest job participation rate in decades, global terrorism has been at an all time high, and instead of doing anything about it here in America, we cater to entitled college students who demand free school and "segregated safe spaces."
