WASHINGTON, December 1, 2016 — A faculty member at Ohio State University described student Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who injured 11 people after slamming his vehicle into some and slashing others with a butcher knife last Monday, as “quiet” and an “intelligent young man… the kind of guy who knows his content before class, he asks the right questions. All of a sudden for him to attack people and lose his life, it makes no sense.”
That should dispel the popular myth among the nation’s educated class that our institutions of higher learning produce morally superior individuals.
The university’s Muslim Students’ Association President, Nabeel Alauddin, hinted the violent incident may have been the fault of the victims, “It is getting to be increasingly challenging to be an American Muslim,” He told the New York Times.
The official voice of the outgoing Obama administration, and all-around dispenser of leftist flapdoodle, National Public Radio, proclaimed on its website, “Muslim community fears backlash after Ohio State attack.”
That headline has consistently popped up after nearly every radical Islamist attack since 9/11.
Who, you ask, is the religious minority that consistently finds itself on the receiving end of hate crimes in America?
According to the FBI that group is Jews – by 52.1 percent.
Meanwhile, it was discovered that the Ohio State attacker issued a warning on his Facebook page, “If you want us Muslims to stop carrying [out] lone wolf attacks, then make peace. We will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims.”
Translation: No submission to Islam by hateful, Western infidels, no peace.
In response to the Paris attacks of December 2015, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a post, “I want to add my voice in support of Muslims in our community and around the world.”
The tone-deaf statement continued, “I can only imagine the fear Muslims feel that they will be persecuted for the actions of others… If you’re a Muslim in this community, as the leader of Facebook I want you to know that you are always welcome here and that we will fight to protect your rights and create a peaceful and safe environment for you,” said Zuckerberg.
Later that same year, San Bernardino jihadist husband-and-wife team, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, used the popular social networking site to communicate with a select group in Pakistan. The couple “used Facebook to declare their joint allegiance to Islamic State,” the Los Angeles Times reported.
And last May, the Chicago Tribune reported that members of the Islamic State Caliphate turned Zuckerberg’s baby into a human trafficking auction site.
“To all the bros thinking about buying a slave, this one is $8,000,” wrote Islamic State fighter Abu Assad Almani of the young female prisoner pictured in his post.
But today, Facebook programmers are busily devising algorithms to expunge so-called “fake news” (a.k.a., alternative conservative news sites) from their member’s news feeds. It’s in retaliation for their perceived influence in depriving Hillary Clinton and the mainstream media of their preordained victory over Donald Trump.
If there is a unifying theme here, it’s that jihadists and progressives seem to have the same deranged need for the complete submission of free-thinking Americans.
