President Obama’s national security speech two weeks ago likely will be remembered, if it’s remembered at all, for its being repeatedly heckled.

What it should be remembered for is being a transparent, but tone-deaf, attempt to change the subject from the scandals swirling around him.

Tone-deaf? He basically came out against the drone strikes he’s been presiding over, and in favor of closing Guantanamo, which he hasn’t done.

And most outrageously, on the heels of the Boston bombing — not to mention attacks on other Westerners in London and Paris — our president claimed that “America’s legitimate claim of self-defense cannot be the end of the discussion.”

Really? Let’s hear the rest of the discussion, Mr. President.

He almost seemed to be declaring the war on terror over. ...

As this president calls a rhetorical retreat, the British — not exactly your shoot-from-the-hip gang — are headed the opposite direction: setting up a terrorism task force to go after radical preachers and other flashpoints of Islamic fanaticism.

Truth be told, Britain and much of the rest of Western Europe have an even taller task — that of reforming their immigration laws. ...

Perhaps Sweden, and the whole of Western Europe, needed shaking. Its immigration policies are a disaster.

They’ve allowed in huge immigrant populations that have assimilated poorly or not at all, creating ghettos and powder kegs across the continent.

This is not a matter of being “intolerant” toward the immigrants; fact is, policies have been far too tolerant.

Immigrant populations necessarily take their own cultures with them — and that can be a beautiful, edifying thing. Different music, food and other wisps of unique cultures breathe new life into an immigrant’s new nation.

But assimilation is not only not a bad thing, it’s a necessary thing.

And the onus is on the immigrant to fit in, not on the host nation to recast itself in the immigrant’s image.

This is especially true when some immigrants are as malodorously overbearing and violent as they have shown themselves to be.

Maloderous, overbearing rapists with completely twisted views on all aspects of life. But Obama says the call to prayer is the most beautiful sound in the world to him, so let's not expect miracles as long as he's in office.

By the way, if things keep on the same track, this column will be illegal based on "hate speech' in a couple years.
