|Political correctness claims more victims.|
We're learning more and more about the perpetrators of the San Bernardino shootings as the days go by. One of the most fucked up things has got to be the fact that Syed Farook's neighbors knew something suspicious was going on, but said nothing. Why? Well they didn't want to be labeled as racist, of course:
A California woman reportedly noticed “suspicious activity” at a house connected one of the Muslim terrorists in the San Bernardino massacre but did want “profile” him, amid questions about how family members and others could have overlooked the stockpile of ammunition and explosives left behind in his home.
A man identified as Aaron Elswick told an ABC News affiliate that a fellow neighbor noticed “quite a few packages” being delivered “within a short amount of time” at a home registered to the mother of Syed Farook, who with wife Tashfeen Malik, fatally shot 14 people and wounded dozens of others Wednesday at a business complex in San Bernardino, Calif.Liberals have been all over blaming guns for the San Bernardino shootings. What about the culture of political correctness liberals have created? Americans have been told for years that if you see something, you need to say something. However we have here an example of Americans who were so paralyzed by political correctness that they refused to follow that simple maxim. Fourteen innocent people are dead because of that.
What if these neighbors had reported what they saw? Is it possible that the terror attack in San Bernardino could have been stopped before it even started? Absolutely it's possible. There's every chance that Farook's bomb factory would have been shut down if the neighbors had just called the cops. The fourteen innocent people that died at that Christmas party would still be alive, and Farook would just be another terrorist loser on his way to Gitmo.
Unfortunately none of that happened. Farook's neighbors were scared. Not of the terrorist in their midst, though. They were afraid of the community as a whole branding them as intolerant, racist bigots. The Left has created a climate of insane political correctness, where any ill word spoken against one of the protected classes results in immediate and harsh retribution. Reputations and careers have been ruined because of imagined slights against political correctness. Farook's neighbors saw what happened when people spoke out. They were afraid of the same thing happening to them, and as a result fourteen people paid the ultimate price.
We need to start blaming the Left for this terror attack. Their actions made it possible. The blood of fourteen innocent men and women is squarely on their hands.
