UNREAL: Look who CAIR now blames for the San Bernardino attack
Back in 1984 at the Republican National Convention, conservative political scientist Jeane Kirkpatrick popularized the existence of what she called the “blame America first crowd.” She recalled the story of a number of marines who were killed during a peacekeeping mission in Lebanon – only to have the left blame the United States for the murders, not the terrorists who committed them.
The left’s tactics never seem to change. It’s been less than a week since the San Bernardino shooting, and the blame America first crowd is out in full force.
When there’s a mass public shooting, we’re bombarded with stories talking about the epidemic of gun violence and need for strong gun control (though no one can ever seem to specify what exact gun control measures they want). But only when the shooter can be used to justify the left’s motives.
Since that wasn’t the case in the San Bernardino shooting, we’ve seen some pretty ridiculous explanations of the shooting, such as the shooter’s lawyers claiming that Syed Farook was teased about his beard at work.
But the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) takes the cake for the most ridiculous explanation for the shooting.
Their culprit? America, obviously.
