The political firefight over the San Bernardino shooting terrorist act started almost before the event was over, with President Obama calling for gun control even while the suspects were still on the loose. Morning Joe seemed to think this was another Sandy Hook and peppered all of their interviewees with gun control related questions.
But for me, the take away of this event is the utter failure of “see something; say something.” As reported by CBS:
A man who has been working in the area said he noticed a half-dozen Middle Eastern men in the area in recent weeks, but decided not to report anything since he did not wish to racially profile those people.
Americans have been taught, and have learned the lesson, that it’s better that multiple people die horribly than to be thought of as racist.
Political Correctness kills.
