Two Killed Outside Mohammed Cartoon Contest in Garland, Texas

Saeed Ahmed et al., CNN, May 4, 2015

A cartoon contest featuring controversial images of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed turned deadly Sunday night when two men pulled up in a car and opened fire. Police returned fire, killing both men after one wounded a security guard.

None of the approximately 200 people attending the event were hurt.

A federal law enforcement source told CNN’s Susan Candiotti that one of the two men was a Phoenix resident who was convicted in 2011 of a terror-related charge. Elton Simpson is thought to have sent a tweet before the attack that read, in part, “May Allah accept us as mujahideen,” the source said. It bore the hashtag, #texasattack.”

The keynote speaker at the event in Garland was right-wing Dutch politician Geert Wilders, who was placed on an al Qaeda hit list. It was organized by the American Freedom Defense Initiative–considered an anti-Muslim group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups.

“The Islamic jihadis are determined to suppress our freedom of speech violently.” Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, told CNN. “They struck in Paris and Copenhagen recently, and now in Texas.”

Simpson was convicted in 2011 of making a false statement involving international and domestic terrorism and sentenced to three years of probation, court records show. Prosecutors said he told FBI agents that he had not discussed traveling to Somalia to engage in “violent jihad” when, in fact, he had, according to an indictment reviewed by CNN.

The men drove up to the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, got out of their car and began shooting just as the “Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest” inside was ending around 7 p.m. (8 p.m. ET), according to police.

An unarmed security guard, Bruce Joiner, was shot in the ankle. {snip}

Garland police, who were helping with security, fired back, killing both gunmen. The exchange lasted about 15 seconds, police said.

“The first suspect was shot immediately,” Garland Mayor Douglas Athas told CNN. “The second suspect was wounded and reached for his backpack. He was shot again.”

{snip}

An officer first told audience members to stay where they were. Seconds later, there was an announcement on the PA system by a SWAT team officer. He said, “Hey, there has been a shooting outside the venue. We need to escort you out of the room.”

A man in military fatigues herded the attendees into an auditorium.

“There was an incident outside,” the officer said. “Two suspects have been shot. Possibly have explosives on ’em, OK? I just need everybody to remain calm, become orderly, and we’re going to take you into the auditorium a little further away from the front of this building. All right?”

{snip}

The American Freedom Defense Initiative said it specifically picked the venue, a school district-owned facility, because it hosted an event denouncing Islamophobia in January.

The Sunday night event invited cartoonists to send in caricatures of Mohammed. The group said it received more than 350 submissions. The winning entry would get $10,000.

There were about 200 people at the event, police said.

{snip}

Security was tight. The school district brought in extra officers, and the group itself hired several more. Security costs, the group said, were upwards of $30,000.

Only those who purchased tickets ahead of time were admitted. They had to go through metal detectors.

{snip}

Many Muslims consider depictions of Mohammed blasphemous.

The prohibition against illustrating the prophet began as an attempt to ward off idol worship, which was widespread in Islam’s Arabian birthplace. But in recent years, it has taken a deadly toll.

{snip}

Wilders, the Dutch politician who was the keynote speaker at the Garland event, is controversial for his anti-Islam views. He was placed on an al Qaeda hit list for his film “Fitna.”

The film, which Wilders released online in March 2008 to international outcry, features disturbing images of terrorist acts superimposed over verses from the Quran in an apparent attempt to paint Islam as a threat to Western society.

In 2011, Wilders was cleared of charges of inciting discrimination and hatred with the movie.

“The day we give away humor and freedom of speech is the day that we cease to exist as a free and independent people,” he told the attendees at the Garland event Sunday night.

  • I am a little bit disappointed in the way some news sources, Drudge and otherwise, initially covered this, trying to pawn it off on ISIS. Why did this have to be the work of a group, when it could have just as easily been just your random lone wolf adherents to the seventh century totalitarian death cult? Just as we’re too quick to blame gangs for black crime, now we’re too quick to find some sort of big well known organized group or milieu to point fingers at when some individual pops off in the name of the Koran. They’re easy answers in order to avoid having to think about and discuss hard realities.

    And, as it turned out, one of the two suspects is your garden variety domestic black who converted to the seventh century totalitarian death cult. Change just one or two wee slight circumstances in his life, and he would be in Baltimore right now throwing bricks through cop car windows and screaming “black lives matter.”

    • Blacks+Islam=Real Trouble. Seriously, though, do you honestly think these blacks join Islam because of RELIGIOUS reasons? Come on!

      • Mack0

        Black + Islam = Useful idiot. Arabs dislike blacks. As you suggest, they prey on black racism and victimhood to recruit dumb blacks they can easily manipulate.

        • newscomments70

          They often recruit in prisons. This has been happening since the 60s.

          • Lexonaut

            The Blackstone Rangers come to mind.

          • newscomments70

            I was thinking of MalcomX

          • Lexonaut

            Malcolm X broke with Elijah Muhammed. For that reason he was killed. It was never proved but Louis Farrakhan was rumored to have been one of the shooters in the shotgun assassination of Malcolm X.

        • Exuberant Auditor

          They’re doing good missionary work in Africa though.

          • Mack0

            I’m all for more Africans blowing themselves and other Africans up. Godbless their important work.

          • Lexonaut

            Let’s have a captions contest! I’ll open with …

            Yes! I can read Braille with my tongue. Let me prove it to you.

        • Hammerheart

          Pretty much this. Islam is essentially a genocidal pyramid scheme that also happens to be an IQ test wrapped up in a suicide vest.

        • JohnEngelman

          Somebody should tell blacks who are thinking about converting to Islam that the Arabs castrated male slaves. If those male slaves were black, the Arabs also cut off their penises.

          • Mack0

            Ive mentioned it to a few homeboys, Brother Engelman. I found they weren’t very receptive to my attempts to enlighten them.

          • ElComadreja

            You may as well attempt to enlighten a rock.

          • AFlaVet

            They must already have … cause they sure have been missing their brains since then.

          • Oil Can Harry

            Bruce Jenner wants to hire these Arab men you speak of.

          • ElComadreja

            Finally, something I agree with them on.

          • David Ashton

            Unlike Christians (but like the UK Green Party) Muslims favor polygamy. Has anyone heard ever heard of Negro monasteries?

        • TruthBeTold

          What blacks don’t know is that the reason there are few blacks in Arab countries is because Muslims used to castrate their black slaves.

          • JohnEngelman

            Arab slave owners had children by their female slaves. That is how Negro genes entered the Arab genome. That in turn is why the average Arab IQ is 85.

            The influx of negro genes is the main reason Arabs are unable to emulate the achievements of Arab civilization a thousand years ago, and previously.

        • Light from the East

          Blacks and Muslims are both easily offended. By knowing this, it is easy to manipulate them to a certain trap. For example, on the one hand, we falsely announce an event featuring drawing the image of Muhammad on a black majority downtown. On the other hand, we send people pretending to be liberals helping blacks but secretly make the place look like there is going to be an “anti-police, justice, and black lives matter” event but we don’t specify the name of the event. On the date of the event, angry Muslims with hatred blinding their minds will misunderstand everyone on the scene is cartoonist and shoot them all. All we have to do is wait and finish those Muslims surrounded at the area in the end.

        • Jon Sobieski

          I worked for a while down at the County Clerk office doing real estate ownership research. It is also where you go to do a name change. Every month I would see this imam in a long dress the really ‘pious’ Muslim men wear bring in young black men and have them change their names to Muslim names. We all got a good laugh about it. Black people are so stupid, not all of them, but a lot of them. Abed is what arabs call black people, it is the same word for slave. Go figure.

      • NoMosqueHere

        Blacks are attracted to horrific violence of Muhammed. Blacks and the islamic death cult are a natural fit.

        • Jon Sobieski

          Arabs scream VICTIM of the white man! Blacks scream VICTIM of the white man! The alliance is natural even though Arabs think blacks are slaves Eh, abed? Abed is arabic for slave AND blackperson. Blacks just don’t have a clue.

          • David Ashton

            As in Shadrach, Meshach and – AbedNegro?

      • Light from the East

        Violent nature puts those two together.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        I think the violence, savagery, and inhumanity of radical Islam appeals to blacks, who are equally violent, savage and demonstrably inhuman…

    • Chip Carver

      Drudge’s site is a decent news aggregator, but when it comes to certain things, he toes the “party line”, as in his ultimate allegiance sometimes seems to lie elsewhere than with the US when it comes to the way we should all view things like the attack listed above.

      • Race Heretic

        Drudge is a pretty mainline Republican as far as I can tell.

        • Jason Lewis

          If mainline you mean neo conservative Zionist then yes he is.

          • Race Heretic

            Haha yes, that’s actually pretty much exactly what I meant.

          • Anglokraut

            Isn’t that what a modern Republican is, these days? Everyone else is marginalized as “far right fringe”.

          • Belinda Boundreau

            I find it interesting the republicrats are dominated the the ‘log cabin’ crowd – the zio-homos. Israel doesn’t stand a chance and will attempt to take the world down with its sorry arse.

          • george00

            There are Paleocon Republicans like Pat Buchanan that the MSM tells us are “far right fringe” but that doesn’t mean we have to accept it.

          • TruthBeTold

            He’s far from perfect but liberals hate him. They’re actively working to find reasons to take him down.

            Soon the Net Neutrality Act will become law. We’ll find out what new powers they have ‘stop hate’ on the internet.

            I suspect anonymity will soon be a thing of the past.

      • I think I know what you’re thinking, but I don’t think it’s that. People like easy answers involving highly visible but non-taboo targets. If we blame black gangs for black crime, then we don’t have to think about racial differences and HBD. If we parrot “ISIS ISIS ISIS” every time some lone wolf seventh century throwback tries to shoot up an art exhibit, then we don’t have to confront immigration as an issue, (even though in this case one of the two doers was a domestic black who converted).

        That said, just as the Drudge-Fox-lamer cons were too quick to blame ISIS, there is a disappointing bromide developing among some of our people on our favorite sites. I’m not going to stir up the hornet’s nest by saying what it is, and thankfully, so far, nobody on this thread has yet been dumb enough to say it for themselves. But if you think it, it’s a stupid thing to think.

        • Lexonaut

          “I’m not going to stir up the hornet’s nest by saying what it is, and
          thankfully, so far, nobody on this thread has yet been dumb enough to say it for themselves.”

          Perhaps that’s because I’m not smart enough to have figured out what you’re talking about. Clue, please — or a link.

        • Max

          It is just another means of avoiding the real unspeakable question and blaming some “environmental” factor for behavior.

      • FozzieT

        Sorry, have to disagree on this. Drudge has been consistently posting articles about black rampages for the past several years. Next to this website, SBPDL, and “White Girl Bleed A Lot,” Drudge has been very much on top of the epidemic of black-on-white violence, from Polar Bear Hunting to feral chimp-outs. And, he’s much more “mainstream” than any of the other sites (unfortunately). Kudos to Matt Drudge.

        • Since about two years ago, Drudge has been fairly consistent on reporting good immigration issues.

          Really, if you report on the immigration invasion, or the black undertow, or the seventh century totalitarian death cult’s antics, then I don’t care how “zionist” you are, you can be as paranoid as you want about Iran getting a nuclear bomb. Just don’t expect me much to join you in the latter pursuits.

          • george00

            I agree with you. The average American doesn’t give a damn about Israel and why should we. I can see why the people that run the MSM think it is the number one news article.

      • Hammerheart

        I agree, when it comes to some of my college courses I am able to use many of the articles I found on the drudge report to argue my position, which I believe many posters on this site would find to be just agreeable at the worst, and enviable at best.

    • Lewis33

      Even worse than Drudge was the usually stalwart Daily Mail. After reading their coverage of this I lost a lot of respect.

      • Lexonaut

        I’ll have to check that out. The Daily Mail is usually straight down the middle regarding news of the USA.

    • NoMosqueHere

      Garland police, who were helping with security, fired back, killing both gunmen. The exchange lasted about 15 seconds, police said.

      MSNBC came out and said the the Pamela Geller ran a racist group ‘according to the Southern (Anything But) Poverty Law Center and other intelligence gathering groups’.

      So ‘the racists’ almost go what they deserved.

      • Rob

        Pamela Geller is a cousin of the muslims, if you know what I mean.

        • TruthBeTold

          The whole middle east is nothing but Semite vs Semite and the world is caught in between.

            We could dump Israel tomorrow and it wouldn’t make one bit of difference to the Muslims.

        • Veritas

          I don’t care what she is. Her organization is one of the few in the U.S. to have the courage to stand up for free speech against the medieval death cult. If the SPLC calls them a “hate group”, they are probably on the good guys’ side.

          • Rob

            I am surprised that the SPLC labeled Geller’s organization as a hate group. Her own relatives run SPLC.

      “I wonder if the local towel heads consider my “I will not submit” bumper sticker blasphemous.”

      It’s not blasphemous but yes, it does announce you as one of us rather than one of them. For that you must die.

  • Good shooting, guys!

  • AFlaVet

    Actually…the Geller rally was a huge success. It flushed out the exact mindless, intolerant, terroristic criminals that the cult of izslime has in their fold. If there ever was a time to let even the demrats see just what these people are made of….The event in Garland was the perfect bait. This is the sharia brand of “tolerance and governess” these animals want to impose on us all? Thank you Texas for dispatching them to their 72 sturgeons.

    • George Costanza

      I don’t think she was trying to incite violence or bait them to attack, but yes it does prove the muzzies are a danger to Western Civilization and they must be repudiated. But the media is “playing along to go along” and the double standard is so blatantly obvious..A kid shoots up a school..”NRA is racist” “BAN Guns” they demonize a large segment of the White population…etc etc you know where I’m going with this..

    • Michigan Patriot

      Now that sounds fishy to me !

    • TruthBeTold

      Now we’re going to have the endless discussion of PG provoking Muslims and inciting ‘hate’.

      Liberals are already siding with the Muslims to curb free speech.

    • Lexonaut

      “[The Geller rally] flushed out the exact mindless, intolerant, terroristic criminals that the cult of izslime has in their fold.”

      It also flushed out a huge number of leftist sympathizers on the internet — folks who don’t understand that Radical Islam will be coming for them, too.

      • It’s also flushing out another kind of person with another kind of mindset on some of our favorite websites, but thankfully, none here so far. This news is turning out to be a Rorschach Test among our people.

        • Lexonaut

          By George I think I’ve got it, thank you.

  • ThatWhiteGuy

    The mind a Muslim really is a strange thing. They claim that hate is being spewed against them, that people stereotype them, etc and then go out and prove all those stereotypes to be true.

    • Exuberant Auditor

      Religious fanaticism is so passé, but Muslims haven’t realized that yet. That’s why the world is having fatigue from them and why so many people hate them. And in their case, it goes across the board politically, except maybe the Far Left.

      • Starting about five centuries ago, the West gradually moved toward a secular society. The world of Islam never did. We got lazy in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, when Islam seemed to be getting more tolerant, but that was an illusion. They are only tolerant when they are under control. Now they sense the weakness in the West and are taking their shot.

    • DaveMed

      It’s not strange at all. They’re two-faced.

      In America, anyone but Whites can profit from victim status. Muslims are grinning and slavering over Whites’ constant tripping over themselves to aid all but their own.

    • Not strange. Muslims and blacks are very easy to figure out. No wonder blacks are so attracted to Islam. They both exhibit the classic case of projection if there ever was one. Very simple.

    • TruthBeTold

      The same with blacks. They keep telling us they’re not stereotypes and then they loot and riot like stereotypes.

  • Johann Wald

    This is exactly the kind of response Islamophobe and promoter of this event Pam Geller wanted. Here’s an insight into Geller’s mentality. About 5 years ago or so, she wrote an article that was published on the American Thinker website that advocated the release from jail of arch traitor Jonathan Pollard. Reader comments were, surprisingly for that website, overwhelmingly against this. As am I. Now I propose an alternative contest. Let’s draw the rabbi (Mohel) in action. If you’re not sure what that “action” is, look it up because it’s not pretty. Let’s see some cartoons of Orthodox and Hasidic Jews twirling chickens for Yom Kippur. It would be interesting to see what Ms. Geller’s response to this kind of contest would be.

  • Jim Kental

    This is one thing we can be grateful for when the race war comes…… blacks shoot as well as they read, write, add, and think.

    • Yeah, thank God for Negro incompetence. God knew what He was doing when He made them that way.

  • TCA

    I admit I admire these men.
    They didn’t just talk the talk, or type the type.
    Clearly they were not skilled guerrilla tacticians, but with the right training and leadership, they would have made fine soldiers, as Muslims typically do (or so I’ve read.)
    I would not be upset if God has forgiven them for misunderstanding Him.

    • Exuberant Auditor

      No one denies that they have courage, and that is laudable in itself. But even if you’re well-trained, you still have to weigh the chances of success and worthiness of your planned actions. To believe that such action would yield anything good is delusional and stupid.

      Yes, courage and stupidity can overlap.

      • AFlaVet

        They paid an homage the the Japs during WW2….Banzai attacks?

      • TCA

        I don’t dispute that Islam is a Satanic delusion, and I have no doubt that these men were simpletons. I admire their fanaticism, not their stupidity.

        • AFlaVet

          Are you suggesting then that white Christians should adopt such tactics or fanaticism?

          • TCA

            Tactics, obviously not.

      • Tarczan

        That is nonsense they have courage. They believe they will die a quick, relatively painless death followed by sexual bliss. Further, they have nothing to live for.

        They have been brainwashed that death is good, and painless..

        • Exuberant Auditor

          Good point.

    • Whitey Ryan

      Stop sympathizing with vermin.

    • Good soldiers? What are you smoking? Muslims good soldiers? You don’t need to be a good soldier to murder hostages or kill helpless civilians. Yeah, this time they got more than what they bargained for. Muslims ain’t crap! Give our army a free hand and we would take care of ISIS in one day. They only have power because liberals allow it. One Texas cop, with a handgun, took out two of those P.O.S. who were armed with machine guns! Stop selling the White man short.

    • ViktorNN

      Muslims are sh*t. They do die very well though, in their millions. I can’t say it bothers me.

  • phillyguy

    somebody should tell the Southern Poverty Law Center that Muslims are a hate group, they are doing all of the killing or trying to kill in this country ,from 9/11 to the Boston bombing to the Black Muslim in the chicken factory, excetera.

    • They don’t care. They are not liberals in the classical sense. They are Cultural Marxists. They see all evil in the White Christian male culture, and will support anyone who opposes that culture. That is what is called “liberalism” today.

  • Oldcorporal

    Just when is someone going to call out, and investigate, the Southern Poverty Law Center, instead of always praising them as the courageous organization that “tracks hate groups.” The SPLC is, itself, a “hate group.” They hate conservatives; they hate any White people who stand up for their race; they hate anyone who calls radical Muslims what they are — terrorists — and refuses to accept this notion that Muhammad is somehow holy and may not be depicted visually.

    • AFlaVet

      Look who / what they are headed by.

    • AFlaVet

      SLPC is run by that dirtbag Morris Dees and his army of leftist zombies. The alphabets think that using his retirement funding plan called SPLC somehow lends credence to Dees’ shakedown of companies and bunko ops of white guilt leftists paying their indulgences to the Church of Democrat Hackery. Dees is lower than the flies that buzz around manure, and honestly being labeled as a “hate group” by his brainless minions should be a badge of honor. He’s slightly to the left of Mao and his charity scheme has been rated “poor” by Charity Navigator, so he’s a scumbag casting aspersions on everyone else to deflect attention from his poor rating.

    • how about this

      You forgot one type of people they hate: mens’ rights activists. I understand I am not supposed to post links, but there is a YouTube video by Karen Straughan (a major anti-feminist) with the appropriate description: “At least the mainstream media is prepared to call the SPLC what it is–an irrelevant, crooked bunch of money-grubbing civil rights evangelists who are prepared to take the word of someone who calls himself ManBoobz.”

    • ViktorNN

      Good point.

      This is the second time that a group that the SPLC has put on their “hate map” has been attacked violently.

      It’s time that someone puts the SPLC on a list for being a group that targets other groups and incites violence.

      The left gets away with inciting far too much violence. The country is sick and tired of left-wing violence.

      • Anyone putting Potok and Sleaze on a “wanted list” would quickly find themselves under federal prosecution. Maybe the New Black Panther Party is dumb enough to try that.

  • Mark Potok more or less said that it was all Pam Geller’s fault. Funny thing coming from an outfit that is constantly on the watch for hate-motivated violence.

    • HJ11

      Potok was right. Geller seems intent on trying to provoke Muslims into violence. One of the very basic rules in Islam is that there can be no picitures of Muhammad. Why be disrespectful of their wishes? What is to be gained?

      • We do not have to be respectful of their wishes in our own nations. We gain from this the constant reminder to them that we are not their slaves.

    • TruthBeTold

      MSNBC said the Southern (Anything But) Poverty Law Center ‘and other intelligence agencies’ listed PG as a ‘hate group’.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    A senior FBI official confirmed that one of the suspects in the attack has been identified as Elton Simpson, an Arizona man who was previously the subject of a terrorism investigation…but a judge ruled the government did not adequately prove he was going to join a terror group.

    That judge obviously heeded the words of Janet Napolitano and knew Elton Simpson (wonder what his real name is) was no threat to anyone – he knew the most dangerous terrorists in this country are White, pro-Constitution, pro-Second Amendment and/or military veterans of foreign wars.

    I am quite amazed that this event was even allowed to take place. I think some sort of violence was not unexpected.

    • Lexonaut

      “I am quite amazed that this event was even allowed to take place. I think some sort of violence was not unexpected.”

      I’ve been reading and reacting to variations of that all day. The way people usually have been putting it is … “I’m all in favor of free speech, and I’m the first person to defend it. However, this meeting went too far because it is shouting fire in a crowded theater.”

      Most Americans of the left simply cannot get their heads around the idea that free speech is the speech they hate, not the speech they like.

      • George Moriarty

        That art show had to go ahead, it showed that there are 2 people in America, Spencer & Geller who have the fortitude to say something in public about the spreading cancer of Islam. They truly put their lives on the line. Am I correct in saying that Geert Wilders was in attendance also? (The shooting briefly made the news here but there has been no other coverage of the story that is why I don’t know much about it)

        Ours are race denying, culture denying Liberals or worse Ron Paul, Rand Paul Libertarians – everything is supposedly about economics, hard money currency, Constitutional issues.

        Ron Paul stated at the GOP presidential debate on the 10th anniversary of the 9-11-01 Muslim mass murder of our people in our country, Ron Paul said we deserved it for insulting Saudi Arabia by stationing US military forces in Saudi Arabia near some Islamic holy sites.

        This is the mentality we are dealing with – White American leaders who will kiss arse to any and all non White Western people and say “mea culpa”, my fault, we deserve the worst.

        Don’t ever enable these Libertarians.

    Don’t hold your breath expecting this hero to be invited to the formerly White House.

    “The prohibition against illustrating the prophet began as an attempt to ward off idol worship, which was widespread in Islam’s Arabian birthplace. But in recent years, it has taken a deadly toll.”

    Simpson was convicted in 2011 of making a false statement involving
    international and domestic terrorism and sentenced … Prosecutors said he told FBI agents that he had not discussed traveling to Somalia to engage in “violent jihad” when, in fact, he had, according to an indictment reviewed by CNN.

    Ah yes. The old ah dindo nuffins defense. The police may not be the brightest bulbs in the chandelier, but they get really peeved when a jailhouse convert to mohammedanism treats them as stupid.

    • Simpson was sentenced to three years of federal probation for the false statements, which means he didn’t last very long after getting off supervision, which would have been some time in 2014. What a dim-wit!

  • HJ11

    Extremist Jews are howling about free speech and intentionally provoking Muslims with events such as the one in Texas. The goal seems to be to get the White masses to buy the lies that these extremist Jews just want free speech for everyone. In fact, it is extremist Jews that have forced European countries to restrict the free speech rights of Whites. In many European countries, you can get arrested for raising your arm the wrong way or even questioning aspects of the Holocaust.

    • TrueNorthFree

      I don’t care if she is an extremist Jew or not. I support the courage of Pam Geller and what she is doing. Not many people have the guts to speak out publicly about the ongoing Islamification of our Western countries.

        The real problem we face is the darkening of White nations by allowing them to be flooded by millions of non-Whites. Many of them are Muslims, true, but not all.

    I have been commenting there just to present a different viewpoint to anyone who might read the comment section but I have to say, many left multi-cultists are loony when it comes to Islamic violence.
    Lefties seem to genuinely believe that it is A-OK to slaughter people who hurt your feelings by publicly criticizing your holy prophet. Good God, I just don’t comprehend how anyone with a working brain could think that way.

      I’ve spent all day in enemy territory, locked in mortal combat with the products of our schools and universities. They don’t feel this Radical Muslim attack was a good thing. No indeed. What they feel instead is that it’s all Pamela Geller’s fault, and that we should simply let the sleeping dog of Islam lie. How dare she swat a hornet’s nest with a stick.

      • TrueNorthFree

        I don’t expect much from medieval-minded Muslims but what really galls me is the brainwashed Western multi-cultists whose love of Islam is so overwhelming that they simply cannot comprehend the dangers of allowing Islam to flourish unchecked in our own Western countries.

    • Chasmania

      Awesome post. Truly.

  • Don’t get me started. Yeah, my local news said they were listed as a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Strange, the group that is drawing cartoons is a “hate group” and the people with machine guns trying to kill others with whom they disagree, are practicing the “religion of peace.” Up is down; left is right; freedom is slavery….

    • HE2

      Mr. Taylor is on SPLC “watch list,” American Renaissance is considered a hate group according to their biblio list on Wiki.
      What an arrogant, intolerant bunch of buffoons. If they had their way, free speech [opposing opinions] would be banned. Yet they scream about “free speech,” tolerance, race baiters, and black thugs’ earned right to violently express their displeasure.
      Blacks=dysfunction and instability, no matter what corner of the planet they inhabit. Throw in the Muslim element? Double trouble.
      Remember the Zebra killings? Random, senseless torture and murders of Whites in San Francisco. Extra points for killing a child or woman.

      • Yes, I agree that the SPLC is a group of anti-White Leftists. But, we have to take it a step further: The real issue is, in my opinion, the mainstream news media treats such a group with respect, as though their opinion matters. THAT is where the real danger lies. If they said, “The American Communist Party considers them a hate group…” no one would care and would laugh. But say “Southern Poverty Law Center” and we begin to think these are just nice, liberal reformers, who want “social justice.” It is all about the packaging you put on the product.

        The best way to understand the situation is to consider that there are two government supported and manipulated gangs, the blue costume gang and the black skin gang, whose ultimate objective is to enslave us.

    I’ve got an idea–ship every Mussie we can find in Western nations to the middle east, then carpet bomb the entire place into a parking lot. Naturally this can’t be done, but it’s a lovely idea. Obviously we have gotten progressively dumber with the passing of time for the past 500 years. Europeans in the 15th century knew the threat that Islam posed, why don’t we? The Crusades were pretty horrible and made a lot of mistakes, but they did beat back the Muslims, and made the lesson stick for a good, long time.

  • jaye ellis

    I suggest writing White public officials in the area demanding that Texas ban anything offensive to Islam, demand that all churches be converted to Mosques, demand all White women above the age of 10 “submit” to forced marriages to elderly Pakistani, Afghan mountain men and also, Texans have to give up drinking beer and eating BBQ pork and also pay that infidel tax.

    Most Texans are not real bright (hence Texas presidents LBJ and George Dubya Bush) so they’ll pretty much believe everything including immanent invasion of Texas by the RUSSIANS, Red Chinese that sort of conspiracy wacko stuff, so they’ll probably believe the Muslims are about to invade, enslave Texas and make Texans give up drinking beer.

    Texans will resist anyone threatening to take away their beer and BBQ pork.

            Yes, of course Indiana is in the Midwest and is a very solid, very White state. The Black population is concentrated in a few places Gary, Indianapolis. The state should produce strong White political leaders, but for some reason mostly puts out boring, clueless types – the worst being Sen. Dick Lugar.

    Fortunately, the Islamic terrorists will find that majority of blacks will be as good at organizing and carrying out jihad as well as anything else they put their minds to. That is, not very well at all. To wit: these morons started shooting at a lone security guard instead of waiting until the attendees began to exit the venue. The result? Two dead incompetent jihadists. All the attendees went home to their families. The only real thing we have to be concerned about with regard to blacks is rioting, looting and welfare.

  • 5Sardonicus

    Although marginalized by the Mainstream Media, Pamela Geller is well aware of the threat that increasing Muslim immigration poses to Constitutional freedoms. She is also aware of rising anti-Semitism in Europe due to high levels of Muslim immigration. Unfortunately, many
    wealthy and influential Jews, as well as liberals in general, appear to be living in the past– fearful that Neo-Nazi’s will goose-step across their front lawns any day now! I fear for the future, if the warnings of courageous individuals like Pamela Geller, Geert Wilders and Robert Spenser remain unheeded.
