Florida shooter: ISIS! I FIGHT FOR ISIS! ISIS TOLD ME TO KILL PEOPLE!
FBI: Like, totally not Islamic terrorism you guys!
When the government has been so politicized that they can't even call a jihadi what they are, then pretty much everything else coming out of their pie-holes is going to be ignored as well. Which is how you get to half of the government violently hyperventilating about how Russia hacked all the emails, and the majority of the country just shrugging and saying "Meh. That's only what you say."
We have a government who acknowledges that Hillary Clinton violated multiple laws with her home-brew server, but won't prosecute her. We have a government who refuses to say the words "Islamic Terrorism". We have a government who had to be forced to admit that Benghazi was a terrorist attack and not a response to a video. We have a government who did NOTHING while China hacked the OPM servers and stole the personal information of over 20 million people.
So pardon me whilst I ignore their weeping and wailing about how Putin personally walked in and hacked the election. A) That's bullshit. B) the actions of the people now wailing about Putin have to be suspect, just based on their previous actions or lack thereof. There is no reason what so ever to trust the US Government right now, or to accept what they say at face value. If the CIA came out and issued a statement that the sky was blue, I would personally go outside to check before I accepted what they said as the truth.
So as the government now comes out and says "Not terrorism you guys! It's all good, you guys! Hey you guys, it was just like a once-in-a-lifetime thing!"
In my head, I know that they're full of shit, can't be trusted, and the reality on the ground is most likely the exact opposite of what they're claiming.
