Today, FBI Director James Comey stated that, contrary to previous news reports, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, the couple that carried out the deadly terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California, did not, in fact, post public messages of support for jihad and martyrdom on social media.
The claim that Malik had posted such messages but that they were "deliberately ignored" by the Department of Homeland Security has been centerpiece of the Right's criticism of the Obama administration in the wake of the terrorist attack.
In fact, this claim formed the crux of an unhinged rant that The Blaze's Dana Loesch delivered on her television program last night in which she furiously attacked the "godless left" for "mocking people who were simply asking for prayers" in the wake of the attack and for blaming the attack on guns and the NRA.
"Here's an idea," she said, "how about you guys stop letting terrorists in ... because you all have blood on your hands right now."
"It wasn't the NRA that made the rule that said we're not allowed to look at the social media activity of people who are unvetted and coming from hotbed areas of terrorism like Tashfeen Malik," Loesch continued. "I don't know if people missed Government 101 and how all of this works, but that was actually Jeh Johnson and the Department of Homeland Security."
"It was that rule, that very rule, that allowed inside these United States, fiancée Pakistani Visa applicant Tashfeen Malilk, who, by the way, was ranting on social media for years about her jihadi fetish," Loesch fumed. "She was fetishizing jihadism online but because Jeh Johnson was so obsessed with political correctness and so obsessed with optics — which I’m sure is going to be of great comfort to the 14 families who lost people in San Bernardino that day — I’m sure they’ll find great comfort in the fact that Jeh Johnson did all he could to make sure that DHS was beyond reproach in terms of politically correct optics."
"I also have a major problem with all these tragedy dry-humping whores," she ranted, "and I'm not watching my language because it’s about time somebody call you out for what you are. You sicken me.”
