In a White House press conference after the shooting in Bernardino California, an conversation occurred between a reporter, Peter Doocy and Josh Earnest, the president’s spokesman. A conversation that everyone needs to hear.
Peter Doocy: “President Obama jumped to say that this mass shooting means it is time for common sense gun laws. Does the president really think that common sense gun laws will deter terrorists now that he has admitted these two might be terrorists?”
Peter Doocy: “The president thinks that when the terrorists are sitting around planning a mass murder they may call it off because President Obama has put in place common sense gun laws?”
Attorney General Loretta Lynch of the Justice Department spoke to a Muslim advocacy event after the San Bernadino attack and asked participants to contact the Department of Justice or the Department of Education if any Muslim children are bullied in school. She referred to Ahmed Mohamed, the 14 year old who took a clock to school that resembled a bomb who is now suing the school for $15 million for Islamaphobia.
“Everything need not result in a lawsuit, but some things do have to go to that area. We have, as you may know, opened an investigation into the case of the young man in Irving, Texas. We will see where that investigation goes,”
Outside of President Obama’s opinion that global warming has caused terrorism and that climate change, not ISIS, is the biggest threat to our national security, these are the next most nonsensical statements that have come out of the Administration. President Obama is so determined to pass gun control that he is willing to come to his own conclusions about the massive attack in San Bernadino before the investigation is complete. He has announced that the attack might be terrorism but could be work place violence, reminding us of misguided decision by the White House that the massive shooting at Fort Hood in Texas was the same. Nidal Hasan fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others while yelling “Allahu Akbar” on the base in Texas but was still classified as “work place violence.”
The FBI continues to investigate the couple that instigated the attack in California. The two suspects had traveled out of the country several times to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. The handguns used in the attack were legally purchased by Farook, and investigators are looking into who purchased the 2 AR 15’s used in the attack. Back at the suspect’s apartment investigators found 12 IEC pipe-bombs, 2300 assault rounds and 2000 9 millimeter rounds. The estimated cost of their weaponry was over $30,000, all while Fayood only made $50,000 per year and his wife, was unemployed. Investigators are looking into who might have financed the weaponry.
Because four of the weapons were purchased legally in the U.S., Obama believes that passing strict gun control laws will stop terrorists from committing jihad in the United States. He wants to stop law-abiding citizens from having the ability to defend themselves against terrorism while our government refuses to even admit it is here on our shores.
Meanwhile Loretta Lynch of the Justice Department is determined to stop free speech if it offends Muslims while assuring their advocacy groups that they will investigate, sue and prosecute anyone who bullies Muslim children in schools. However, did the Department of Justice offer up the same power of the White House on bullying after other school shootings involving non muslim students?
Meanwhile back in California, Farook’s neighbors refused to call police to report the suspicious activity by the suspects in fear of being accused of racial profiling. We have witnessed the White House and the liberal media ruthlessly attack anyone who dares speak in a politically incorrect manner, resulting in lost jobs, ruined reputations and even arrest. These actions are now resulting in the silence of anyone taking note of activity that should be immediately reported to authorities. As we saw in the case of Ahmed Mohamed, the teacher reporting the obviously disturbing home-made clock at school was mercilessly accused of hate speech and the school is now being sued by Ahmed’s family. Meanwhile the Justice Department is actually considering this incident Islamaphobia, discouraging anyone from daring to report a potential clock bomb in a school next time. If a bomb in an educational facility does go off, those fearful of reporting it will also be chastised. It has already proven, as in the California attack, to be a deadly premise. Political correctness is a “lose-lose” situation for all Americans.
For those who claim racial profiling is wrong, we have to look at the reality of the situation. Although most Americans do not believe that all Muslims are terrorists, we do know that the majority of individuals who have committed jihad are, in fact, Middle Eastern Muslims. At what point does common sense trump political correctness? In a time of war, should we allow political correctness or fear of offending Muslims result in the slaughter of millions of innocent Americans before we realize our mistake?
The United States appears to be in a choke hold placed upon it by the very administration who has taken an oath to protect it. While radical Islamist Terrorists are determined to see all of Western civilization destroyed, the president continues to bind our hands, shut our mouths and disarm the citizenry. Who will protect us? We are on our own!
