Suddenly, this shooting is no big deal anymore!

Man, that narrative changed quick, didn't it?

That was building into quite the 'We must pass gun control NOW, because stopping shootings like these is of the utmost importance!' talk, right up until the moment one of the shooters' name was revealed as 'Saheed Farook'.

Now, what's really going to be stressed is that it's of the utmost importance not to blow this out of proportion, and the biggest mistake we could make is to maybe put a hold on immigration from muslim countries. We should view this as an isolated tragedy, perhaps a result of anti-muslim rhetoric.

Makes me wish I'd been following it realtime.

I was watching it from start to finish, so I got to see the narrative evolve from 'We think it was a white guy' -> "GUN CONTROL NOW, IT'S THESE WHITE MALE CHRISTIANS WHO ARE A THREAT" -> 'Three people, possibly middle eastern' -> *silence* -> 'His name is Farook' -> "This is a tragedy but let's not overreact.'

Wasn't the first narrative that it was a Planned Parenthood attack? Pretty much what the The Left ordered but then it turned out to be much bigger and more complex than "no more baby parts." I think it was CNN who invited Cecile Richards on to talk about how she, PP and their supporters are going to be strong, the "we're going to fight through this" BS. Now PP is barely even mentioned when talking about the San Bernardino shootings.

Ah, a much better summary. Yeah, it was a very blatant about-face.
