In their endless quest to step on every rake in human existence, the media today first posited that the San Bernardino shooter had something to do with Planned Parenthood (wrong); then they suggested that the real problem was lack of gun control in California, and that those Christians who prayed for the victims were the real problem (wrong). All that was left was an attempt to pin the whole thing on climate change.
But before the leftists in the press and the Obama administration could go that far, reality intervened – the police shot two of the three alleged perpetrators, and one was captured. For hours on social media, the name Syed Farook had been uttered; that name had apparently been stated over police scanner far earlier in the day. Finally, this evening, the media confirmed that one of the shooters – the alleged initiator of the attack – was indeed Syed Farook.
Here’s what we know about him.
He Was An American Citizen. The media were quick to point this out, though they did not state whether he was born in the United States or naturalized here. He graduated in 2003 from La Sierra High School and studied finance at California State University Fullerton until 2013.
He Was A Religious Muslim. According to his father, he was “very religious. He would go to work, come back, go to pray, come back. He’s Muslim.” A neighbor said, “He was quiet but always polite. Maybe two years ago he became more religious. He grew a beard and started to wear religious clothing. The long shirt that’s like a dress and the cap on his head.”
