While they have not yet claimed responsibility for the attack, ISIS has wasted no time in praising the success of the two shooters yesterday during their incident of “workplace violence” with the creation of a special hashtag: #America_burning. While our own president, the attorney general and most of the media can’t seem to figure out what the motive could possibly be for a couple of heavily armed and outfitted devout Muslims, ISIS seems to have no doubt.
Per Vocativ, here are a selection of the tweets:
“Three lions made us proud. They are still alive,” one ISIS adherent tweeted in Arabic after the shootings at Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino. (while they WERE still alive) “California streets are full with soldiers with heavy weapons. The Unites States is burning #America_Burning #Takbir”
ثلاث ليوث اثلجوا صدورنا بفضل الله مازالوا أحياء ويتجولون شوارع كاليفورنيا بالزى العسكرى وبأسلحة ثقيلة#أمريكا_تشتعل #تكبيـر

“God is great and he the one to be praised for that,” another supporter posted in the forum in Arabic. “This is hell with god’s will.” But the hashtag was primarily used on Twitter where one ISIS extremist taunted the United States with a tweet that read “Let America know a new era #California #America_burning.”
لتعلم #أمريكا أننا في زمان جديد #كاليفورنيا #امريكا_تشتعل — أبومصعب المصري (@abomossabelmass) December 2, 2015Another ISIS supporter posted in reference to the shooting on Twitter, “God is the greatest. May god spread fear in the homes of the Crusaders.” الله اكبر…اللهم انشر الرعب في عقر ديار الصليب فكم اذو المسلمين — john–almwhid (@almwhid_john) December 2, 2015
Twitter is taking these comments seriously and has already disabled most of the accounts using the hashtag.
But for the rest of us, there’s probably really nothing to worry about. Don’t you worry your pretty little head that neither Syed Farook or Tashfeen Malik showed up on any terror watchlist, and apparently all the weapons they had were legally purchased. No, it should be of no concern that of the “Syrian refugees” allowed into our country since the November 13 Paris terror attacks, exactly zero of them were Christians, instead all Muslim, and the majority males between the ages of 14 and 50. No, there’s nothing to worry about. Carry on. Happy “holidays.”
