So, great success. After the San Bernardino shooting that killed 14 people, we have shut down more than 900 public schools in the second largest city in America. Terrorism isn’t about killing people, or maiming them, or destroying property. Terrorism is about undermining the authority of a target nations government. It’s about making its populus too frightened to send their children to school, too worried to board a plane without massive security theatre, and too scared to accept immigrants into a nation that was founded and championed by immigrants.
Today is a dark day not because of lives lost, but because we have effectively agreed to the premise of terrorism.
An anonymous email from overseas shuts 650,000 students out of school? What the heck is going on? This is a blatant attempt to scare the population, but the problem is it’s not ISIS creating the fear, it’s our own officials!
