From the WSJ article:

"He was a star not simply because he was a Muslim, but because he was a special kind—the sort who posed, in his flaunting of jihadist sympathies, the most extreme test of liberal toleration. Exactly the kind the progressive heart finds irresistible."

The author is using the Hasan case as evidence to make a sweeping statement that "progressives" find violent jihadists irresistible. Disgusting.

Excellent article on Hasan. Individuals will be blamed but the the culture is what ultimately needs to be changed.

Latham,
That whole article and that's what you pull out of it? I don't think you drew the correct premise from the author's statement. The author is stating that "progressive hearts" find those who test the extremes of liberal toleration irresistible, in this case it happened to be someone who flaunts jihadist sympathies. That is quite a stretch from saying progressives find violent jihadists themselves irresistible.

I think Speal could go a touch faster if he scooted his butt up to almost touching the dumbbells. This would cut the necessary range of motion by about 30%.

Regarding the WSJ Article - We should never allow ourselves to be blinded to reality by attempts at political correctness. Our continued denial of of this and our refusal to recognize the nature of the conflict in which we are engaged will only result in further loss of life of Americans and tactical victories by our enemies.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Don Clarkson at February 16, 2011 7:03 PM

A rebuttal to today’s mind-expanding article:

I am an officer who was serving at Ft. Hood at the time of the shootings. My unit was only days away from processing through the site where the shootings occurred. In short, I consider myself lucky to not have experienced that tragedy first hand. I also was acquainted with one of the victims. A few points:

1. Anyone who massacres their fellow man in such a way is NUTS. Period. Its been my observation that those same nuts often come wrapped in one banner/creed or another. These trappings do not justify their acts and certainly their acts are NOT a representation of everyone else under said banner/creed. This article very malignantly hints at Islam itself (or the acceptance of other cultures in general) as being an evil, as opposed to the brand of extremism MAJ Hassan espoused. A brand of extremism that was apparently NOT supported by the Muslim community MAJ Hassan belonged to stateside. (A caveat to the “nuts” comment: I do not consider MAJ Hassan insane in a way that would prevent him from standing trial for his crimes…trying to not get into legal hair-splitting here)

2. I do not see MAJ Hassan’s irresponsible retention/promotion as being exclusively due to “multiculturism” AT ALL. Over the duration of the two wars, the Army retained vast amounts of relatively worthless Soldiers. Especially those in high demand MOS’s. I served in such a unit. I know first hand of several situations where commanders were prevented from chaptering individuals who repeatedly failed to meet minimum standards. Not only were they retained, their evaluations were written with same inflation most evaluations contain…so as to not damage his or her “future career.” And even worse, some got REDICULOUS $$ to reenlist (vomit). This is pathetic and yes some units are worse than others. But it is institutionalized (Army wide), and has been for quite some time and you certainly can’t blame THAT on “multiculturalism.”

3. With regard to MAJ Hassan’s blatant extremist views…this is the scariest part to me…I’ve worked with numerous Muslim Soldiers. And obviously many many Christian Soldiers (and of course Jews, Wiccans, etc). I’ve heard the “I put God/my religion ahead of the constitution” sentiment many times. Frustratingly, often it comes from senior NCOs and officers IN FRONT OF junior personnel. Guess what? They’ve all been Christian. I’ve certainly heard the viewpoint that we are in “Holy Wars” or that Islam is an evil/bloodthirsty religion. Typically, when I express (polite) dissatisfaction with this viewpoint, I’ve gotten ignored or argued down. At times when I’ve heard it from subordinates, I reinforce that conversations pertaining to politics/religion be limited to non-duty hours. (although while deployed, as a means of blowing off steam, I and my Soldiers often had academic discussions including multiple viewpoints…but proselytizing strictly forbidden)

4. Lastly (and this was not a point discussed in the article but one that has continually frustrated me) after the shooting, several (civilian) friends emailed/txted to say something like: “see, if they let you ALL carry your weapons on post, this would have never happened.“ WRONG, FLAT WRONG. This guy, coward as he obviously is, was certainly nutty enough to not be deterred by threat of death. Would he have killed/injured as many? Probably not. But more importantly, when everyone carries weapons, it becomes more difficult to keep everyone safe. Just ask our Servicemen/women who have had to act as police in a society where civilians can carry weapons. It makes their job harder. And easier for enemies to blend in, cause damage, and then recede into the crowd.

Respectfully (to all religions),
A Midwestern-Born, Christian-Raised, Career Army Girl

Comment #31 - Posted by: ian at February 16, 2011 8:06 PM

ok, my initial response to today's article is apparently too long for posting.

suffice to say that i find the article to be rather disgusting and misguided, for many reasons. I still feel this way despite knowing I very nearly missed being present at the site/time of shooting. Sad that i have to spend so much time divorcing an activity i love from a political ideology that HQ whats so much cement as part of the "brand." yeah yeah yea "don't read it if you don't like it...." got it.
and a parting shot: for a group of people who seemingly are all about non-political correctness, CFers sure do get their panties in a bunch when the same lack of courtesy is hurled in their direction. just a thought.

Comment #32 - Posted by: soldier05 at February 16, 2011 8:11 PM

If only this article had a different thesis, it would not be such drivel. It opens with a wild distortion of comments by three political world leaders without ever referencing when, where, and to whom they were spoken. No attempt was ever made to even paraphrase. The credibility establishment section of the article just crumbled right then and there.

Yes, the Hasan case was a tragic and compound failure, but multi-culturalism had nothing to do with it. To suggest otherwise either shows the author is frighteningly ignorant, or more likely, that his aim is to play to the ignorant among us. This is not to say that the rest of the article lacks truth. Many of us were surprised that there was little to no emphasis on Hasan's beliefs in the reports. Perhaps it reflects the fact that the actual cause of his behavior was his problematic psychological state. These issues manifested themselves through radical islam, but radical islam was just the medium, not the cause. Crazy people with violent tendencies, if they aren't prevented from doing so, will act according to those tendencies. Radical islam is great fodder for these crazies. Instead of blaming multi-culturalism, we should be focused on rooting out the sick and violent among us - especially when we are giving out weapons.

Comment #35 - Posted by: Djames at February 16, 2011 8:31 PM

an addendum:

why on earth do people get all bent out of shape about political correctness? political correctness, multiculturalism, and other such "progressive values" are a GOOD THING. They are really just other words for TACT and ACCEPTANCE. Jesus would probably approve.

What is NOT GOOD? Being too insecure/weak to present TACTFUL, TIMELY, PRECISE, and ACCURATE CRITICISM. Something that if MAJ Hassan's superiors would have done...

Anyways, there is a big difference. Can the same individual/organization do both? can i wear a purple shirt and red pants at the same time? of course, that does not mean they are the SAME THING.

In my experience, being tactful is very rarely a hinderance in ANY relationship/mission. But for some reason this community scorns tactfulness. Its the "dumb brute" mentality. I'm here to tell you its not becoming. Please Stop. Sometimes acting all hard/cocky just makes you look inept/ignorant.

And I believe the religion/extremism issue does NOT belong in the same conversation...or only if very carefully done.(i could go on about that...)

Comment #43 - Posted by: Xman at February 16, 2011 9:39 PM

This reminds me of the same pattern as other incidents of work place violence. The biggest commonality - no one confronts the offender with the truth. No one says "you frighten your co-workers and your work is not acceptable in quality." No one says, "if you want to continue to work here, do this this and this." "Do not do this, do not do that, or we'll fire you." Whatever the current protocol is for that circumstance, I don't know, I have not seen the training in years, probably very few military leaders have, and never mind the fact that among those of us who at one time practiced warfighting, the medical corps/nurse corps folks often seem like they are more like civilians than like us. And that's with good reason, they have a different mission.

As to the author, she's right and she's wrong. She's right that these reports should at least discuss the aspect of religious extremism, and how we can better train people to respond to it. She's wrong that we should focus on Islamic extremism, as it doesn't matter what flavor of religious extremism comes into play, the response should be the same within the military. It should be confronted and dealt with just like any behavior that threatens good order and discipline - forgive the wretched generality of that description - and always the safety of the offender's co-workers should drive the response.

We don't have to go around witch hunting muslims to take care of our force. But what they allowed Hassan to do, without taking action, before the shooting was an astonishing failure of leadership. It's not about political correctness, it's a failure of leadership which political correctness is but a correlate. Paul

Comment #47 - Posted by: Mik at February 16, 2011 10:05 PM

@Todd #25

You've fallen for the same political correctness that infected the people who kept Hasan in the Army.

If a Caucasian officer spoke approvingly of white supremacist terrorists, he'd be reprimanded and his career immediately terminated. Making such statements violates the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

The only reason Hasan didn't suffer that fate is because he is Arab and Muslim.

Hasan's motivation was clearly Islamic extremism. He said so, as did his religious mentor, Ayman al-Awlaki.

By refusing to even consider the obvious - that Hasan and every other Muslim terrorist is motivated by Islamic extremism - and instead swallowing politically correct, multiculturalist nonsense hook, line and sinker, you prove right the article you just dismissed as "drivel".

Comment #48 - Posted by: Oscar at February 16, 2011 10:35 PM

I have to disagree with the author that Hassan's failure to be pushed out of the Army his murdering Soldiers has anything to do with multiculturalism. If anything, it has to do with the failure of his raters and senior raters to demonstrate the courage and the professionalism to do their jobs. The author also a missed a perfect opportunity to criticize the overinflated evaluation system of the Army. I assume other services are similar. Has anybody tried to rate an NCO a 3 or 4 block on an NCOER or an officer anything other than "among the best" been successful without proper counseling paperwork? If you have tried, you've probably been unsuccessful. Even with the right paper work, the senior rater or rater will always get some "mentoring" from the reviewer. Not a bad thing, necessarily, but definitely requires a rater to stick to his guns. Rather than give this guy middle of the road evaluations, they touted this idiot as a beacon of helping others understand Islam. Drivel.

Here's what a wise CSM once told me: there are three "yous." The first is what your subordinates say you are. The second is your reputation amongst peers and other leaders. The third is the you on paper. The truth lies somewhere in between. Clearly, for Hassan, the paper him was far off of what everybody thought about the guy- a failure of the system with tragic consequences.

Do I agree with multiculturalism as a mantra? Certainly not. However, I don't think the European model of reactionary politics is necessary a solution that is going to solve the problem, either.

Cheers.
Tim

Multiculturalism is a joke. It is a Marxist philosophy. The opposite of Multiculturalism is assimilation. Multiculturalism was championed in universities by progressive leftists. Nassan never saw himself as an American. He never saw the constitution as his liberating document. He saw himself a an arab. A subset of American, Arab-American. Whether it is Arab-American, Asian-American, or African-American the labels are meant to divide us for someone else's political power. You tie this with an extremist religious ideology and the PC culture that didnt allow his peers to speak out and say that is un-American who have this. You can see the same manipulation of people on other left leaning organizations like Nation of Islam or La Raza.

Not every extremist is a murderer and not every murderer is an extremist. To say that the people around him were in denial or had magical thinking is a total farce, hindsight is 20/20.

Just over a minute faster than last time due to more continuity (less rest)on the situps - had lots of misses on DU's b/c inability to keep rythm with a shortish rope.

Second day back with crossfit in almost a year. Eva yesterday with 35lbs kettlebell in 39:13. Today I failed miserably at DU's so I subbed tuck jumps and got her in 8:23 with anchored sit-ups. Feels good to be back!

Comment #97 - Posted by: Nick at February 17, 2011 7:33 AM

@ Rick - Dont get all geeked out on little stuff like that. If you need to work on ROM then work on doing the situps all the way elbows past knees. If you are wantign a fast tough push thru mentally then do the workout with or without anchors, however you want. I say never sacrifice ROM but chill and the anchors dont so this. He isnt in the games today so thanks to Chris for posting a video!!

Can only string together combinations of DU, SU, SU, DU,... Etc
I only counted the DUs. So I estimate that I did 150 DUs + about 300 SUs. I didn't count failed attempts.

Anchored sit-ups. Wanted to do Eva today, but I got a big blister from pickup basketball last night, so running was not in the cards. Sit-ups went faster today. DUs about the same - struggled in the round of 50, pretty clean after that.

10 minutes rest, then dynamic bench press 10x3 at 175.

I've never felt my hip flexors burn before. I'm sure my abs are soon to follow.

Came back for more. I figured if Fit Mom was going to do GHD Annie then I would give it a try (that might have been a mistake, I'll let you know tomorrow.) My rope gave me fits because of the kink in it caused by the knot I put in it earlier today on regular Annie.

I am kinda surprised that in all the super studly CF videos I have seen of some super studly Cross Fitter doing sit ups, they all use their arms to help them in the sit up. I would just thing this would go against the CF way. Is that so you can go faster and get more of a metcon move rather than doing then slower and having it be more of a strength move? Anyone?

not sure if it's been posted but we were taught to keep the butt on the ground..during sittups no matter how fast and don't think they use anchors in the games. My question is "would either of these be accepted technique at the games?"-due to the butt 4 in off the ground and the anchors. Also, these guys are obviously top of the sport, but if it's not absolutely 'Crossfit games' accepted form, then what sense is there in posting times?

I knew it! I knew there would be box jumps tomorrow! I practiced my double unders today and I am starting to get it but not good enough to do them in the workout! Therefore I was prepared to do the jump knee tucks instead, until my friend came by with a new plyo box he made for me. So we both decided to do 24" box jumps in place of the double-unders!

Thus my time for Annie with 24" box jumps was 12:48.

And I get to use my new box tomorrow!!!

A bit frustrated. Switched from unanchored to anchored situps partway through because I felt like I was hitting them way too slow. Still slow afterwards, I think because of the super hard surface I was on. May try to hit this one again this weekend.

Comment #238 - Posted by: Stretch at February 18, 2011 5:13 AM

Regarding anchored vs. unanchored situps:
I've done it both ways--the first few times I did Annie, I used anchored situps because I was just getting decent at double unders and thought it would make my time a bit faster. I actually did this WOD Wednesday and decided to do my first unanchored Annie. I was surprised to note that even with a terrible start (didn't warm up my double unders before) I ended up with a PR. My conclusion is that, because I'm still not amazing at double unders, not anchoring my feet made me use only my abs in the situps and not my legs. Because of that, my legs weren't as tired for the DUs, and I was able to do them almost completely unbroken.

Just a thought. But if you've only ever done it one of the ways, try the other. It's sort of interesting to see the difference.

That was more than half a minute slower than my PR and I will say, in my own defense, that the stinky little dude who insists on wearing longjohns in the gym did not help. First, he tried to strike up a conversation about how many double-unders I could do, and then, on not receiving an answer, decided to pick up an old rope and give du's a try for himself. Whack whack whack owww. Distracting.

There is a journal article somewhere that says the best/standard situp is anchored, on an Abmat. Anchored is important because the hip flexors are strongly engaged. Why is this important? Not sure exactly. Just passing on what I read in the Journal. I imagine it has something to do with making the movement more multi-joint, and making it faster (faster = more power = more intensity).

Did this one as prescribed. It was definitely tougher than I thought. My abs weren't ready for that many sit-ups.

Finished in 19:20.

My right foot was a little sore after the workout. I'm posting this a few days late, and my right foot has continued to bother me.

34 year old male 200 lbs.
Did anchored abmat situps. On rounds 20 and 10 I did actual double unders. I think my streak is 5 in a row.

Time this time was 10:03 (pr). Last time was 10:50 doing all jump tucks.

M/ 37/ 132 lbs/ 5'-6"
As Rx: 4:31 (PR by about 14 seconds)
Did Annie about 10 minutes after heavy back squat WOD and did it in a PR of 4:31 first time I really accurately timed myself. I hit the situps pretty hard. This is the first time I used my x-mas Again Faster jump rope. I like it for speed, but it coils up and it's a little annoying to get the first spin or two. I think I could probably shave of about 10-15 seconds but not much faster. I only missed a couple of DUs so mostly unbroken.. I agree with Speal that the DUs are the rest time in this WOD.
I wanted to do it the same way Speal did to see how I'd fare. First time I'm beating Speal's time. Since he's only about 10-15 lbs heavier than me I usually try to key off his results to see what a pretty optimal result would be.

6 seconds slower than my PR. Did this up at my folks' cabin, at 7300 ft. It didn't feel much different than the regular version. I struggled a bit with double-unders in the round of 50, but only had a few misses after that. Sit-ups were tough as usual; had a surprise ab cramp as I started the round of 40 - otherwise, they went fine. Annie is one of my favorites, and a go-to travel WOD for sure.
