I have never seen more disingenuous baloney from ‘family attorneys’ in my life. Anybody else watch the press conference with the killers’ family attorneys this afternoon?
They’re simply outraged! The FBI chief, they say, hasn’t found a link to any terrorist cell, and the media had darned well better “consider that.” I’m not quite sure why the family will be so relieved that there was no connection to ISIS, are you? Oh, yes, the attorneys are furious. “You don’t see “Christian Killer” used in headlines when they kill people at Planned Parenthood, but every headline since the killings has MUSLIM in it”. Actually, I looked around and can’t find a headline with MUSLIM in it, but…they say so. And, apparently, we should be ashamed for that. It makes the Farood family feel bad. It makes all Muslims feel bad, according to them.
“Islam would never do this…the coworker made fun of Sayed’s beard…” Well, there’s a good reason to kill 14 people, right? n But a devout muslim wouldn’t do this?
“We need to stop infringements on Muslims like from some of the presidential candidates who want Muslims registered and to be checking into mosques.”
“No family members could identify any radical links … they’re just stunned. I’m just being objective and telling the world that there is no evidence of any ties to terrorist groups.”
Why is that so important to these attorneys? Why is their main beef that people think Farood was inspired by ISIS? They even said “this is ridiculous ..just because his wife looked at an ISIS site doesn’t mean she was following ISIS…I have looked at a Brittany Spear site and I hate her music.”
By the way, one attorney says the woman was “a typical, caring housewife, she’s only been a mother for six months… .she was very sweet. She was completely covered in modest Muslim fashion.” Wait, she left her child at home with the grandmother and went off to kill people!
“I have 4-5,000 rounds of bullets I keep at home because they’re cheaper that way,” says the attorney. “You stock up to go target shooting when you see a good price.”
Then the attorney went into a rant about guns and how our president is wrong to insist on stronger gun control because it’s our right and we should be able to have guns.
“We can’t let some intolerance lead to further intolerance!” WHAT?
I kept listening only because it sounded like they were winding up to say that we had the wrong couple!
What truly bothered me was that not one member of the press said ‘Are you KIDDING me?’ They walked on eggshells in their questions lest they offend and, God forbid, not get a great story… slime.
What I realized was that this was about NOT FINDING A LINK TO ISLAM. The whole unreasonably long press conference was about how the FBI had found no links to anything islamic, that this IS NOT ISLAM. “The only information we have so far is somebody looked at something on facebook,” they insist. I wonder if CAIR is paying for these attorneys?
Just heard the White House is admitting this killing could have had “connections to foreign terror organizations”…Not what KIND, just FOREIGN. Oh, BROTHER.
