In the wake of last weekend’s New York bombings, President Barack Obama has urged those who see something to say something.
“Law enforcement is asking for help from the community. And so, everybody in this region — I want to repeat what we’ve said before,” Obama said. “If you see something suspicious, then you need to say something.”
More than a few people have been quick to call Obama out on his hypocrisy — if you see something, you need to say something — unless it’s, say, a clock that looks like a bomb.
It’s confusing. On one hand, he urges us to say something — but history indicates that his reaction has been to ignore or punish the concern Americans have for suspicious situations in which groups on Obama’s agenda are involved.

Twitter user Steven Miller lashed out: “A Texas school saw something suspicious and they’re now getting sued by the family he (Obama) invited to the White House.”
It’s hard to argue with.

It’s hard to report anything suspicious when doing so makes you a bigot in the eyes of the Obama administration and his allies in the mainstream meadi.
Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, was arrested on five separate charges of attempted murder connected with the bombings in New York and New Jersey over the weekend.
According to CNN, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said: “We have every reason to believe this was an act of terror.”
The investigation into the incident was continuing.
