As we all well know now, American born muslim Syed Rizwan Farook, and his Pakistani born wife here on a K-1 finace visa, Tashfeen Malik, went on a shooting spree in San Bernardino California killing 14 and wounding 17 before being killed by police in a shootout. But the media and the great politicians of our day are nibbling at the edges of the facts while skirting around two issues.
The first issue the media and the current administration want to pursue is the gun control argument. Before the blood had even cooled, before the suspects had been killed in a shootout, before we even knew what the hell happened, our great leaders were calling for greater gun control measures and CNN turned into the gun control propaganda headquarters, for everyone from President Obama, to Hillary, crazy Bernie Sanders, and yes even irrelevant Martin O’Malley. All of them, so set on continuing the narrative of safety in reduction of guns in the hands of Americans by making sure only the central authorities have guns argument, calling it gun control. But wait, California has some pretty damn strict gun laws, one might say draconian. One might also say useless. Because the guns the terrorists used were purchased legally.
The terrorists managed to buy two “assault” weapons, and somehow bypass the 10 round capacity limit on those magazines. They violated the open carry law in California…but yet California requires a background check at all gun shows, at all other locations for ANY firearm purchase, and has a minimum 10 day waiting period for the purchase of a gun. “But we don’t understand,” the libtards whine. “Those laws should have protected us from these people.” No the laws only keep the people who would already follow them from violating the laws. Criminals do whatever they want. Laws mean nothing to people who are hell bent on ending the lives of as many people as they can, they will always find a way to circumvent any law meant to thwart them.
The second issue, is the terror issue. No one wants to call it terror, their neighbor didn’t want to report them to the police, despite what he viewed as suspicious behaviour because he didn’t want to be accused by of and executed on the altar of political correctness for thinking a “middle eastern” person might be doing something fishy in their house. Remember the big brother slogan from Homeland Security urging us to prepare to inform on our neighbors…See Something, Say Something…how come it didn’t work when your neighbors aren’t GOP, Christian, gun-owning, NRA member having, Caucasians??? Something about Christians terror groups and disaffected Americans being the biggest threat to our nation, blah blah blah, despite the fact that muslim terrorists have killed more thousands of people in this country in the last 15 years. Something like that, you’d think the neighbors would be on the lookout for terrorists. And make no doubt about it, this was terrorism.
Let’s list the facts: muslim, devout muslim who left work to pray when the time came, between the ages of 18-49, travelled to Saudi Arabia for the Hajj, brought home a foreign national for a spouse (interesting that she passed a Homeland Security background check in 2014 to come into this country on a green card, but we’ll save that for the refugee debate), devoted to the study of the Quaran. Wow a lot of that points towards extremism when you throw in the shooting.
The shooting of course taking place during the holiday party (i.e. Christmas party for the non-PC, but California is one of those all inclusive places) where maximum damage could be inflicted on a large group in one area. Again, no motives shouted by the killers, but workplace violence in an area of government that let him off to pray everyday, that let him take leave to go on the Hajj, that had a diverse group of people working for it…the narrative of workplace violence is thin, but I think the politicians will ride it for all it is worth rather than admit it was terror. Again, Obama denied that the Fort Hood shooting was anything other than workplace violence for four years despite the fact that Hassan was screaming Allahu Akbar while shooting.
The problem with Farook and Malik is they destroyed the left’s narrative when the killed his co-workers at a Christmas party in the middle of the day and left bombs behind. Gun control does nothing to stop criminals with ill intent on their minds, and domestic islamic terror has once again reared its ugly head in America and it can’t be ignored forever.
