The left's disgraceful reactions to San Bernardino shooting
During and immediately following Wednesday’s shootings, the left was up and running its puerile propaganda machine, spewing out garbage at such an immediate and rapid pace that it was difficult to keep up with. Here are a few of the highlights – or, rather, lowlights.
No sooner had the first shots been fired than the left was on it. A Planned Parenthood facility in San Bernadino sent out a message that all was well and everyone was fine at the clinic, while MSNBC jumped at the opportunity to suggest that PP might have been attacked, noting it was “just a few blocks away.” The fact that the clinic was over a mile away from where the shooting occurred seemed an annoying detail to those salivating to pin the murders on a right-wing pro-life person with a gun and an agenda.
The left was overflowing with mockery for conservatives praying for the victims and the families of the victims. (Of course Democratic politicians who offered prayers were exempt from mockery.)
A Huffington Post headline read, “Another Mass Shooting, Another Deluge of Tweeted Prayers.”
The cover of the NY Daily News had bold lettering that read: “GOD ISN’T FIXING THIS.” The subtitle read: “As latest batch of innocent Americans are left lying in pools of blood, cowards who could truly end gun scourge continue to hide behind meaningless platitudes.”
The Daily Kos was in overdrive, tweeting, in response to a Reince Preibus tweet sending thoughts and prayers: “How many dead people did those thoughts and prayers bring back to life?” An earlier tweet from the little communists outright blamed the GOP: “Yo GOP, kinda hard to talk about ‘keeping people safe’ when your peeps are shooting up America.”
CAIR weighed in, as one might expect. Whatever they have to say deserves zero legitimization, since they are a Muslim Brotherhood front group and masters of taqiyya. I bring them up only because they also sent prayers, but they were of course absolved from mockery, which was reserved solely for Republicans.
Apparently it was also lost on the left that at least one of the potential targets who was hiding for safety in the building had texted her father to tell him she and others were hiding. Her message ended: “Pray for us.”
Late on Wednesday night, Los Angeles radio station KNX1070 reported that “a neighbor did not call authorities about suspicious activity because she did not want to racially profile.” If this report is true, it will be a chilling example of how PC isn’t just something obnoxious. It’s something that can get people killed.
