Political correctness stopped woman from alerting authorities over suspicious activity
A neighbor of San Bernardino killers Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik refused to report the pair to authorities after witnessing suspicious activity at their apartment over fears she would be labeled racist.
Farook and Malik were identified as the culprits behind yesterday’s deadly massacre which claimed at least 14 lives at the Inland Regional Center. Farook was a devout Muslim who recently returned from Saudi Arabia. Authorities are not ruling out terrorism as a motive behind the rampage.
According to Fox News correspondent Will Carr, a neighbor of the pair did not alert authorities because “she did not want to racially profile.”
Carr also revealed that neighbors became suspicious when a group of three to four Middle Easterners moved into a nearby apartment and began “getting a lots of package deliveries.”
If confirmed, this underscores how overhyped concerns about being politically correct have now taken precedence over reporting genuine security concerns – with deadly consequences.
Another recent shooting – the sickening on-air murders of reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward – was also motivated by killer Bryce Williams’ obsession with the victims having allegedly made politically incorrect statements towards the gunman.
Meanwhile, within minutes of the shooting, a deluge of leftists on Twitter immediately blamed the massacre on white people, conservatives, Donald Trump supporters, the NRA, the Second Amendment, pro-lifers, and men in general.
After the shooters were named as an Arab man and woman, progressives suddenly lost all interest in the story.
The New York Daily News couldn’t be blunter in its characterization of those in the Republican Party who turned to prayer after the San Bernardino shooting, rather than gun control, blasting out a headline that basically read: Relying on God was stupid.
The newspaper’s front page contained a headline is huge font that read, in all caps: “GOD ISN’T FIXING THIS.” Above, it read: “14 dead in California mass shooting.” Beneath, it read: “As latest batch of innocent Americans are left lying in pools of blood, cowards who could truly end gun scourge continue to hid behind meaningless platitudes.”
And what were those “meaningless platitudes?”
And as if the message of the newspaper’s senselessness of prayer wasn’t made obvious, the New York Daily News also highlighted the word “prayers” in each of copied Twitter messages with yellow.
The prayer shaming went deeper than hitting at the Republican notables. The headline came at the same time news reports broke of community members in San Bernardino not only requesting prayer for the victims of the shooting that left 14 dead and 17 injured, but also gathering in a prayer circle to thank God for blessings, Fox News reported.
For our media, there is no better time to launch the partisan snark
Let’s close with this sentiment — you still laughing…?
There’s a clear claim being made here, and one with an edge: Democrats care about doing something and taking action while Republicans waste time offering meaningless prayers. These two reactions, policy-making and praying, are portrayed as mutually exclusive, coming from totally contrasting worldviews. Elsewhere on Twitter, full-on prayer shaming set in: Anger about the shooting was turned not toward the perpetrator or perpetrators, whose identities are still unknown, but at those who offered their prayers.
