About San Bernardino
One – the immediate politicization of any tragedy involving guns, facts or no facts:
Just when we think that politics can’t sink any lower, President Obama once again proves us wrong by politicizing the tragedy in San Bernardino before the facts were even known. What we do know is that the American people are heartbroken by these horrific crimes — and despite what the president would have us believe — America’s law-abiding gun owners are heartbroken by these horrific crimes as well. At the same time, we are sick and tired of this president suggesting the men and women of the National Rifle Association are somehow to blame.
Why, you ask? Well because this supposed “leader” of ours is all about politics and agendas. He’s already decided what is “best” for the rest of us whether or not the actual fact match the narrative or not.
Two, which is related to One. The hypocrisy and cowardice of the left. Radical Islam has struck more than once here in the US the and cowards won’t acknowledge it or face it. But they will vilify and defame those who won’t strike back and blame them for the problem such as Christians, the NRA, and the Right in general. God help you if you believe in the 2nd Amendment.
Yes I know Jon Gabriel and yes I know he’s being totally sarcastic. I also know he makes the point perfectly. By the way, did you see where Bloomberg and MSNBC tweeted that the shooting was only “blocks away from a Planned Parenthood” facility. See “One” above. Think narrative construction.
Three – we now have the Attorney General of the United States promising to take action against US citizens if she considers their rhetoric to be anti-Muslim and “edges” towards violence:
Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Thursday warned that the Justice Department could take aggressive action against people whose anti-Muslim rhetoric “edges towards violence” and told the Muslim community that “we stand with you in this.”
Speaking at Muslim Advocate’s 10th anniversary dinner, Lynch said since the terrorist attacks in Paris last month, she is increasingly concerned with the “incredibly disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric … that fear is my greatest fear.”
Who will be the arbiter? And, why selective treatment? See “Two” above. They won’t face the real enemy and they want to chill speech pretending it is anti-Muslim rhetoric that is the problem, not Radical Islamists.
These three things are consistent in every shooting that involved radical muslims. One, the attempt to initially frame it so that the right is the problem. Then to frame it as if it was just another “mass shooting” – you know, “workplace violence.” The cause: guns, not followers of a 7th century death cult. Two, deny, deny, deny and try to shift the blame. Don’t face the reality of the problem. “ISIS is contained”. Instead of facing the problem and addressing it, Mr. Obama’s answer is to contemplate stricter gun laws by executive order that will do nothing to stop what happened in CA. But the left believes that the criminals and killers out there will be done … even though in California had every law Obama want’s nationally in place and supposedly functioning and the Islamic Radicals still had the banned weapons. Third, the erosion of freedom. Now we have the AG saying she’ll decide what “edges” toward violent rhetoric and will apparently act unilaterally to arrest the “perpetrator”. However rhetoric “edging” toward violence against any other non-protected group?
