Forgotten in 2020: Victims of Radical Islamic Terrorism
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won’t even say their names.
December 2 marked five years since Islamic terrorists Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik invaded a government office party in San Bernardino, California, and murdered Robert Adams, Isaac Amianos, Bennetta Betbadal, Harry Bowman, Sierra Clayborn, Juan Espinoza, Aurora Godoy, Shannon Johnson, Larry Daniel Kaufman, Damien Meins, Tin Ngyen, Nicholas Thalasinos, Yvette Velasco, and Michael Wetzel.
In his statement on the attack, President Obama failed to name any of the 14 victims. The terrorists, “the two individuals who were killed,” also went unnamed and the president said “we don’t know why they did it.”
The “composite character” president of David Garrow’s Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama did not issue a statement on the fifth anniversary of the mass murder. Neither did his vice president, Joe Biden, whose own pick for vice president, Kamala Harris, was California attorney general at the time of the San Bernardino attack. She is already talking up a “Harris administration,” so her performance in 2015 invites a look.
“We must seek justice for those who lost their lives in the recent attacks in Paris and San Bernardino,” said Harris in a December 17, 2015 statement that failed to name any of the 14 murder victims. Attorney general Harris also failed to name Farook and Malik and offered no insight on their motive. Harris did say that “not only is it immoral and contrary to our values to cast aspersions against an entire faith and the millions of law-abiding American Muslims, but it is strategically unwise.”
Joining Harris were officials from the Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Council on American-Islamic Relations. CAIR Los Angeles director Hussam Ayloush said Harris exemplified leadership by “addressing the spike in hate crimes against American Muslims and other minorities.”
In a statement one year later, Harris recalled “those who lost their lives and the loved ones they left behind,” but again named not a single victim. On the fifth anniversary, Harris issued no statement on the deadliest Islamic terrorist attack on American soil since Maj. Nidal Hasan gunned down 13 unarmed Americans at Fort Hood, Texas, on November 5, 2009.
The self-proclaimed “soldier of Allah” murdered Michael Grant Cahill, John P. Gaffaney, Frederick Greene, Libardo Eduardo Caraveo, Justin Michael DeCrow, Jason Dean Hunt, Amy Sue Krueger, Aaron Thomas Nemelka, Michael S. Pearson, Russell Gilbert Seager, Francheska Velez, Juanita L. Warman, and Kham See Xiong. Velez, 21, was pregnant but her unborn baby was never counted among the fatalities.
The composite character president, formerly known as Barry Soetoro, called this “workplace violence,” not even “gun violence.” He failed to name any of the victims, and in 2014 refused to meet with Fort Hood survivor Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford.
Back in 2009, vice president Joe Biden issued this statement: “Jill and I join the President and Michelle in expressing our sympathies to the families of the brave soldiers who fell today. We are all praying for those who were wounded and hoping for their full and speedy recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are also with the entire Fort Hood community as they deal with this senseless tragedy.” Like his boss, vice president Biden failed to name the terrorist and his victims, who only “fell,” in a “senseless tragedy.”
February 21 will mark one year since Philip Haney, 66, author of See Something Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad, was found dead from a single gunshot wound in Amador County, California. Deputies recovered “numerous thumb drives and a laptop” from the crime scene, and “those items and numerous other pieces of evidence, were turned over to the FBI.”
In September, the FBI declined a FOIA request in the case, and the bureau has yet to issue a report or update the public about any suspects and their possible motive. The composite character president issued no statement on Haney’s demise, and like Frank Marshall Davis and David Garrow, DHS whistleblower Haney is missing from A Promised Land.
During the 2020 campaign, establishment media asked Joe Biden about his favorite milkshake flavor. On the other hand, reporters ignored the Haney case and failed to get Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on the record. What did they know, and when did they know it?
When it comes to the San Bernardino and Fort Hood victims, Biden, Harris and the Promised Land president won’t even “say their names.” Americans have grounds to believe that this trio cares more about protecting Muslim terrorists than their victims. For the new movement now emerging across America, it should be the other way around.
The priority of the people should be to oppose and expose radical Islamic terrorism. On every anniversary, or whenever possible, “say the names” of the victims in ways that attract the most attention. At all times, remember the words of the great Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: “They are dead. You are alive. Do your duty. The world must know all about it!”
