….gears up and kills at least 14 at a Christmas party…. . Then goes out in a blaze of gunfire with his wife…. . After dropping their infant child off at a relatives.
Ya know, you have to think this was more than workplace violence.
This was a Muslim’s act of “jihad.” Terrorism.
18 U.S.C. § 2331 defines “terrorism” as activities with the following three characteristics:
- Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law;
- Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination. or kidnapping; and
- Occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.
Nobody’s calling it that this morning, that I can see.
And predictably, Obama calls for gun control, which won’t stop anyone with bad intent. He goes on to compare the US unfavorably with other countries, stating that mass-shootings happen here and not anywhere else (Obviously Wrong). Obama, just last week during a press conference detailing his administration’s strategy to destroy ISIS following several devastating terrorist attacks in Paris, said he’s not interested in “pursuing some notion of American leadership or America winning[.]”
Well get the hell out then. When you think climate-change-apologetics will deal a blow to ISIS terror, you’re living some delusion. And as an aside, Obama is intent on giving reparations to the less-er developed, but what of our contributions to mankind as a whole? I could make a list: Innovations and technologies that not only improve one’s way of life, but save lives….). I wouldn’t give a damn dime, but then, I’m certain our representative government will protect us.
Getting back on track, we have CAIR. CAIR trots out one of the shooters relatives, who says he “had no idea… . “
Lest anyone forget, CAIR – the group that claims its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims – is an un-indicted co-conspirator in the case of US vs. “Holy Land Foundation”, is a terrorist-supported front organization, funded by terrorists, founded by terrorists, and is a group that wishes Sharia law here in the US. Somehow, they portray themselves as legit, and nobody is any the wiser.
What a charade.
