Remember: The San Bernadino neighbors did not.
“If you see something… say something.”
Pretty simple, right? Well, yes and no.
We have seen instances where that principle has identified threats before they became deadly. Like the one unexploded bomb in NYC after the one in Chelsea.
One witness noticed something suspicious, and it turned out to be the real deal.
Or the Homeless Man (Lee Parker) in Elizabeth New Jersey that saved lives by finding and reporting a backpack full of explosives. He was hailed as a hero, and deserves to have his story told:
But in those instances, it was an OBJECT that was suspicious. Not a person.
And these days, being called out as a bigot can destroy a person and his career.
Are we prepared to ‘say something’ if we ‘see something’ that implicates any person whose race, sex or religion sets them apart as ‘protected’?
In San Bernardino, the answer was no. And it was for EXACTLY that reason.
We need to decide who we are as a country. Are we going to deny the truth we can see with our eyes — simply because we fear retribution from the PC police, or a lawsuit from CAIR? (And no, we haven’t forgotten CAIR’s links to terrorist group Hamas… as reported by the FBI)
Or are we going to act in our own self-interest? Will we speak up when we see a possible threat?
Yes, speaking up can have risks.
But so can silence. Just ask the women in Cologne, Germany, the parents in Manchester, or the shopkeepers who watched a truck crash through the Christmas pedestrian mall.
It’s time to man up. And if you’d LIKE to stand against the crowd, but aren’t sure how to get the courage? Here’s a starter kit for you:
