    Default Political Correctness and "Islamophobia"

    Apparently, neighbors of the Islamic shooters in the most recent massacre in California noticed suspicious behaviors from the dynamic duo, but didn't report it to the police because they feared being politically incorrect and accused of "racial profiling."

    Good job social justice warriors! Your efforts have not been in vain.

    Imagine what those people have to live with now, knowing they could've prevented the death and injury of innocent people but chose not to.

    There was a case where I live recently where a guy massacred his ex-girlfriend, and I guess it was so awful, that the officers on scene had a hard time containing themselves after what they saw (which is saying something, because violent crime in the city in the last few years has been quite extreme). The neighbors (an entire apartment building allegedly) later came out to say they heard the murder occurring for hours, but didn't think of saying anything because 'this is normal and they didn't want to stereotype the guy'.

    We live in a world where people choose to ignore violence because they don't want to stereotype the perpetrators.

    I think that's a lot of balls, retrospective rationalising of behaviour, its the same as ALL those people who lived next to serial killers who never heard power tools throughout the night and who thought their neighbours were "quiet".

    Meanwhile, Ahmed Mohamed thought it would be a good idea to bring a homemade clock in a briefcase to school and those ignorant Amuricans thought it was a bomb. How insensitive! After all, when was the last time a kid tried to massacre his fellow students?

    This is what I don't get. Who were these neighbors afraid of appearing politically incorrect to? The police? All they had to do was report their suspicions and let law-enforcement decide the appropriate course of action. If it turned out to be a false lead, so be it. Instead, they chose to ignore their intuition and now over a dozen people are dead (and 21 injured) because liberal university blowhards have convinced the public that it's bigoted to be wary of Muslims behaving suspiciously.

    Actually, it would be the same if they heard power tools and screaming and did nothing. Weird analogy though.

    I wonder why no one complained of socialistophobia back in the day.

    They greatly feared the anarchists and the radical unionists. But Joe Hill never died....

    It's bullshit is what it is. It has nothing to do with racially profiling, and although unfortunately that occurs, this isn't the case of it at all - if someone gives you a reason to believe they're up to no good, why are you thinking about their background? That shouldn't even play into it at all, and in my mind if it does, it shows that person's insecurity regarding diversity. A logical person, upon seeing a shady looking Arab should hopefully be thinking 'there's a shady looking Arab', not 'there's a terrorist!'

    I remember this one time there was a violent sexual predator in our area and the news was trying to warn women in the area to look out for 'a tan looking male', and they tiptoped around the race issue so much that no one knew what the fuck this guy even looked like, other than being a man and having whatever height. Turns out he was Native American, but god forbid someone said that, because it could've really offended the rapist, god forbid!

    Sometimes I want to just punch people that are overly PC in the throat, especially when it comes to such issues as the public's safety.
