On December 2, Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik carried out an act of jihad by shooting up a San Bernardino County Department of Public Health building while its employees were having a Christmas party, killing 14 people and wounding another 21 people. Farook and his wife were later killed in a shootout with the police.
The investigation is on-going, with claims of Farook having an argument at the center (where he was an employee) and leaving angrily, then returning with his wife (and supposedly other accomplices) to carry out their act of terror. Whether or not an argument took place prior to the shooting is still being investigated.
Farook was an American born to Pakistani immigrants, and Malik was born in Pakistan but moved to Saudi Arabia at an early age. They met online, and he traveled to Saudi Arabia where they got married. Not long after arriving in America, she gave birth to a daughter.
So far, it appears that Malik had adhered to radical Islam while living in Saudi Arabia, even pledging her loyalty to ISIS. She eventually passed on her beliefs to Farook, and apparently she was the mastermind of the terrorist attack.
The authorities eventually concluded that this shooting was indeed an act of terrorism. However, the Obama Administration has tried to politicize the attack, by speculating it was an act of workplace violence (which is just another attempt to avoid using the term “radical Islam”, although it did admit it was an act of terrorism).
Despite the fact that this shooting was indeed a terrorist attack carried out by individuals pledging their loyalty to ISIS, the Obama Administration seems more concerned about a backlash against Muslims in America. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has vowed to prosecute anyone who uses “anti-Muslim speech that edges toward violence” and plans to investigate the arrest of the clock kid Ahmed Mohamed. Obama wants Congress to pass stricter gun control laws. And the Council of Islamic American Relations (CAIR) has stated that America is to blame for this tragedy.
All of these statements and tactics are complete nonsense.
First, given the political correctness in America, there have been no hate crimes against Muslims.
Second, it seems more than a coincidence that the Justice Department decides to now investigate the Clock Kid Case.
Third, it is highly unlikely that stricter gun control laws will prevent future terrorist attacks, especially with terrorists relying on the black market for weapons.
Fourth, CAIR is obviously resorting to damage control, even holding press conferences for the perpetrators’ relatives in attempt to gain sympathy for them (and Muslims in general).
The politically correct (and everyone else for that matter) would be wise to learn from these facts.
