AP translates Fresno shooter’s ‘Allahu Akbar’ to ‘God is great’

associated press

Change the language all you want, AP. Doesn’t change the facts.

From Fox News: The Fresno shooting suspect accused of killing three people on Tuesday shouted “Allahu Akbar” when he was taken into custody by law enforcement, according to Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer – but the Associated Press made an editorial decision to print the translation of his words from Arabic to English: “God is great.”

The Associated Press tweeted on Tuesday afternoon with their translation, despite almost all other news outlets reporting what suspect Kori Ali Muhammad actually said. Their tweet:

Fresno police say suspect in triple slaying told them he hates white people, shouted “God is great” before killings. https://t.co/rrSOzfEXaB — The Associated Press (@AP) April 18, 2017

The AP responded to Fox News’ request for comment, and said they had deleted the tweet and replaced it with a new one.

The AP acknowledged in their article that Muhammad shouted “God is great” in Arabic. The AP story reads:

Dyer has said Muhammad shouted “God is great!” in Arabic while being arrested and had posted on social media that he dislikes white people. All three victims in Tuesday’s killings were white men, and Muhammad is black.”

The AP is taking heat on Twitter from news outlets, pundits and journalists for the editorializing, with some slamming the AP for downplaying the shooter’s Islamic ties.

Hate Crime: Black Muslim kills 4 whites in California racist shooting spree

It’s open season on whites in a thoroughly corrupted America where double standards abound.

Paul Joseph Watson reports for InfoWars that on March 23, 2017, a Facebook user named Laura posted this racist incitement to kill white women:

“White women should be hunted and killed then we won’t get white babies who think the(y) own the world!”

But Facebook sees nothing wrong with Laura’s vile comment. Responding to a complaint that Laura’s post is hate-speech, Facebook wrote:

“We reviewed the comment you reported for displaying hate speech and found it doesn’t violate our Community Standards.”

Given the prevailing climate of tolerance for anti-white racism, it shouldn’t surprise us when someone actually acts on Facebook Laura’s and others’ call to kill white people.

Yesterday, April 18, 2017, a black man named Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, did just that in Fresno, California.

In a shooting spree, Muhammad first killed a white motel security guard, 25-year-old Carl Williams, then fired 16 rounds in less than two minutes in downtown Fresno, killing three white men.

Muhammad was arrested shortly afterward. He was already wanted for killing the Motel 6 security guard from last week.

Police say Muhammad had chosen his victims at random and had set out to kill as many white people as he could.

As reported by ABC10 Sacramento:

“Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer says 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, who is black, told investigators he decided to kill white people . . . .  Chief Dyer says Muhammad, who shouted ‘God is great’ [‘Allahu Akbar’] in Arabic before the killings, told investigators he wanted to be known as someone who killed many white people . . . .”

According to NY Daily News, during his arrest, Muhammad shouted “Allahu Akbar,” but Police Chief Dyer said the shootings had “nothing to do with terrorism in spite of the statement he made. This is solely based on race.

Muhammad first walked up to a utility truck and shot and killed a 34-year-old white Pacific Gas & Electric Co. employee sitting in the passenger seat. The driver of the truck, who is Latino, sped off to the police department for help. Muhammad then shot at another person and missed. He aimed at a third, killing a 37-year-old white man on the sidewalk as he walked with a bag of groceries in a neighborhood lined with tall trees. The final victim, a 58-year-old white man, was gunned down in the parking lot of a Catholic Charities building. Chief Dyer said Muhammad had approached a vehicle in between shootings, but spared the lives of two Latino women who were in the car with a child.

Dyer said, “These individuals who were chosen today did not do anything to deserve what they got. These were unprovoked attacks by an individual that was intent on carrying out homicides today. He did that.”

At his arrest, Muhammad admitted he was the guy they were looking for. Dyer said Muhammad told officers, “I did it. I shot them.”

On what appeared to be Muhammad’s Facebook page, he repeatedly posted “#LetBlackPeopleGo,” encouraged “black warriors” to “mount up” against “white devils,” and boasted that his “kill rate increases tremendously on the other side”.

Muhammad has a criminal history in Sacramento dating back to 1997 when he was arrested for making criminal threats. He was also previously arrested for cocaine possession and distribution, domestic violence, forgery, false imprisonment and various weapons charges from 1997 to 2004, according to Sacramento County Superior Court records. The records also show that Kori Ali Muhammad had used several names and aliases, including Kori McWallace, Cory Muhammad and Corey Allen Taylor.

Muhammad faces four counts of murder and at least two additional charges of assault with a deadly weapon.

Suspect’s status as failed asylum-seeker stuns Stockholm

stockholm terrorist attack

The “truck attack” in Stockholm

I don’t know why this is a shock to anyone. Guess they have been living under a rock.

From AP: Much like the flags on the Stockholm skyline — some still flying half-staff, others at their peak — people here were divided over their country’s friendly immigration policies two days after an asylum-seeker from Uzbekistan allegedly killed four people in the city’s deadliest extremist attack in years.

The Swedish capital was slowly, but resolutely, regaining its normal rhythm Sunday as details about the 39-year-old suspect emerged. Police said he had been ordered to leave Sweden in December after his request for a residence permit was rejected six months earlier.

Instead, he allegedly went underground, eluding authorities’ attempts to track down and deport him until a hijacked beer truck raced down a pedestrian street and rammed into an upscale department store on Friday.

“It makes me frustrated,” Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven told Swedish news agency TT on Sunday. The suspect, who has been detained on suspicion of terrorist offenses, was known known for having “been sympathetic to extremist organizations,” Jonas Hysing of Sweden’s national police said.

A second person was arrested on the same potential charge Sunday, and four others were being held by police. None of them have been identified.

Security officials in neighboring Norway, where a 17-year-old asylum-seeker from Russia was detained early Sunday in connection with an explosive device found near a busy subway station, spoke of the alarming potential for a copycat effect.

Norwegian’s security agency said it wasn’t clear if the teen planned to carry out an attack with the primitive homemade device police defused without any injuries. Agency head Benedicte Bjornland said it was likely the youth had been inspired by recent attacks in Stockholm, France, Germany, Britain and Russia.

“The attacks demonstrate how easy such attacks can be carried out, and prove to others that it is possible to make something similar,” Bjornland said.

Sweden has long been known for its open-door policy toward migrants and refugees. But after the Scandinavian country of 10 million took in a record 163,000 refugees in 2015 — the highest per-capita rate in Europe — the government has tried to be more selective about which newcomers it allows to stay.

Swedish police said Sunday they had received roughly 12,500 referrals from the Swedish Migration Board of people who, like the suspect in the truck attack, had overstayed their welcome. The suspect eluded authorities by giving police a wrong address after his residency request was rejected in June 2016, said Hysing, the operative head of the attack investigation. “The efforts to locate (these people) is both time-consuming and resource-intensive,” he said.

National Coordinator Against Violent Extremism Anna Carlstedt, who used to lead the Red Cross in Sweden, said Friday’s attack and the background of the suspect posed “difficult questions.”

“Do we somehow need a more repressive policy?” Carlstedt said. “I think it is very important now not to rush into something, to see how we can safeguard this open society and still be able to protect ourselves.”

The range of mixed emotions — fear and fraternity, anger and openness, — also surfaced at memorial services and rallies held in Stockholm on Sunday to honor the attack victims.

Fort Hood terrorist says he’s going on ‘hunger strike’

NidalHasan-6-12

Fine by me. Let him waste away.

From Fox News: Writing from his cell on death row at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan has declared he is going on a “99 pound hunger strike,” according to a letter reviewed by Fox News.

The former Army psychiatrist, who opened fire on unarmed fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, in November 2009, killed 13 people and injured 31 that day. Hasan was sentenced to death in 2013 and continues to declare himself an SoA, “soldier of Allah.”

Hasan stated in the handwritten letter that by going on a hunger strike, he will “reduce and then maintain a total body weight of 99 pounds” while protesting “America’s hatred for [Shariah] Laws.”

On March 27, Lt. Gen. Sean B. MacFarland, the commanding general at Fort Hood, issued a statement effectively saying Hasan will not be dismissed by the U.S. Army until he is executed. “In the case of Major Nidal M. Hasan (redacted) … the sentence  is approved and, except for that portion of the sentence pertaining to a Dismissal from the Service and being put to death, will be executed,” he wrote.

Hasan’s civilian attorney John Galligan told Fox News they are looking at a “very lengthy appellate process — initially via the military appellate courts … then on to the Supreme Court and thereafter through the tangled web of federal courts.

Retired Staff Sgt, Shawn Manning, who was shot six times by Hasan, told Fox News senior executive producer Pamela Browne, “The fact that this guy who has no regard for human life still thinks he still has the right to make a statement is tragic.”

Nearly eight years after the attack, Manning is still mired in the military’s appeal process to receive combat-related benefits for his injuries. Manning’s next hearing is scheduled for April 11 at Fort Lewis, Wash. Manning and 41 of his fellow soldiers injured and killed at  Fort Hood were finally awarded Purple Hearts in 2015.

Hasan’s 2009 massacre finally ended when he was shot by civilian police officer Sgt. Kimberly Munley. Hasan, now partially paralyzed, is one of six inmates on military death row at Fort Leavenworth.

Galligan maintains the trial was not fair. “If Major Hasan dies while the mandatory appellate process is pending, the findings and sentence will be set aside,” Galligan said. “Millions of dollars were wasted on this show trial but as I said repeatedly, he did not receive a fair trial at Fort Hood.”

Starbucks loses favor with Americans after announcement to hire 10,000 refugees

On January 26, 2017, in the interest of national security to prevent terrorists posing as refugees from entering the U.S., President Trump signed an executive order that temporarily imposed a visa ban on citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries.

To counteract President Trump’s policy, on January 29, 2017, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz sent out a company-wide letter announcing that Starbucks plans to hire 10,000 refugees. See DCG’s post on this, here.

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz

Actions have consequences.

Schultz’s announcement immediately sparked a #BoycottStarbucks movement on Twitter and brought condemnation from coast to coast. Many Americans wondered why Starbucks is hiring refugees instead of Americans — especially U.S. military veterans.

Breitbart reports that a YouGov survey found that after Starbucks’ hire-refugees announcement, its brand name lost favor with customers. Perception levels of the Starbucks brand name fell by an incredible two-thirds since January:

  • Before the company’s refugees hiring announcement, 30% of respondents said they would consider spending money at Starbucks.
  • After the hire-refugees announcement, only 24% of respondents said they would patronize Starbucks.

Below is a chart (from Yahoo! Finance) showing how Starbucks stock value plummeted after CEO Schultz’s announcement on January 29 of hiring 10,000 refugees.

Keep up the boycott!

Fake Anti-Semitism: Black-racist Bernie-voter made bomb threats to Jewish groups to make ex-girlfriend look bad

Of late, there has been a rash of seemingly anti-Semitic incidents. Threats were made to Jewish community centers and schools. A Jewish cemetery in St. Louis was vandalized; another Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia had about 100 headstones toppled.

Notwithstanding President Trump’s condemnation of the threats and vandalism and despite the lack of any evidence of culpability on the part of Trump supporters, he is accused of being at least indirectly responsible for the surge in anti-Jewish sentiment because Trump’s alleged “polarizing rhetoric” allegedly “emboldens” anti-Semitic white-supremacist groups.

Now we have solid evidence that an anti-Trump, anti-white black racist,  Bernie Sanders voter is the individual who made bomb threats against Jewish organizations across America.

juan-m-thompson

Reuters reports that on March 3, 2017, disgraced former journalist Juan Thompson, 31, was arrested in St. Louis for making a wave of bomb threats to Jewish organizations, the first case to emerge from a federal investigation into a surge of threats against Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) and schools that has rattled American Jews. The hoax threats against JCCs have stoked fears of a resurgence in anti-Semitism and forced the evacuation of many centers, including some with day care for young children.

In a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Manhattan, authorities accused Thompson of making at least eight threats, mostly by email, against Jewish organizations, including a Jewish museum in New York and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Thompson made the threats pretending to be an ex-girlfriend, whom he calls “nasty racist white girl” in his tweets, in retaliation for breaking up with him. In other words, Thompson made those “anti-Semitic” threats to make the ex-girlfriend look bad.

Federal prosecutors described a vicious, months-long harassment campaign in which Thompson allegedly used fake email accounts to accuse his former girlfriend of possessing child pornography, driving drunk and, finally, making bomb threats targeting Jewish groups.

Thompson was a reporter for the news website Intercept, until he was fired last year for allegedly inventing sources and quotes.

Thompson made an initial appearance on Friday in U.S. court in St. Louis on one count of cyber stalking, where a judge ordered that he remain in federal custody. He is likely to be extradited to New York to face prosecution.

Authorities are still investigating the JCC threats as well as the desecration of headstones at Jewish cemeteries in Philadelphia, St. Louis and Rochester, New York. St. Louis police will question Thompson about the graveyard vandalism.

Juan Thompson’s tweets @JuanMThompson show him to be an individual who is profoundly alienated from America. Thompson is an anti-white racist, anti-Trump, anti-police, anti-capitalist, in favor of abuse of food-stamps welfare, anti-Hillary Clinton, and a Bernie Sanders voter. Below are some of his tweets:

  • “The white media is repulsive” – Feb. 27
  • “The #Oscars are fucking and toying with black ppl like America has done for centuries. White folk are trash” – Feb. 26
  • “God, I want to be Talib when I grow up. He gives absolutely no fucks about these nasty ass racist white folk.” – Feb. 22
  • “White folk are trash. Absolute trash. All of you.” – Feb. 18
  • “Trump isn’t attending the White Correspondents Dinner, also, b/c he’s a coward who can’t take ppl making fun of him.” – Feb. 25
  • On Chicago’s unending violence and homicides: “Make no mistake. Trump is a developer. This is his and the white establishment’s effort to remove black ppl from the southside of Chicago.” – Feb. 23 
  • “Donald Trump is the perfect example of how dumb, incompetent wealthy white ppl can fail upward.” – Feb. 14 
  • Retweeted “Fuck all police.” – Feb. 22
  • Retweeted “you can’t have capitalism without racism” – malcolm x” – Feb. 21 
  • “My family was on food stamps and we actually ate steaks and escargot. Surf and turf all the way.” – Feb. 22
  • “Fuck you HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton]. You attacked universal healthcare in 16. You’re such a phony ass white woman liberal.” – Feb. 18
  • juan-thompson-tweet (source)

Thompson’s tweets also prove that President Trump was right and really quite prescient about at least some of the threats made against Jewish groups.

On February 28, 2017, Trump reportedly said the bomb threats and the destruction of gravestones in Jewish cemeteries may not be acts of anti-Semitism, but “the reverse, to make people, or to make others, look bad.” For that — for suggesting that attacks against Jews may be fake anti-Semitism, i.e., “false flag” or contrived incidents — Trump once again was vilified by the MSM.

It turns out that, at least in the case of the bomb threats made by Juan Thompson, President Trump was right. Pretending to be his ex-girlfriend, Thompson made those threats, not because of anti-Semitism, but because he wanted to make his ex-girlfriend “look bad”.

‘Rogue One’ Star Riz Ahmed Says Lack of Diversity on TV Can Push People Towards ISIS

riz-ahmed

Who knew that this 34-year-old actor and rapper had the solution to fighting radical Islamic terrorism? I’m sure Mad Dog Mattis will be all over this fascinating solution.

From Hollywood Reporter: Riz Ahmed, who saw his international star soar in 2016 thanks to major roles in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Jason Bourne and HBO’s The Night Of, has warned that a lack of diverse voices and stories on British TV screens could push those from minority backgrounds towards fringe groups and even extremism.

Delivering the annual diversity lecture from U.K. network Channel 4 in British Parliament, the actor – who has used his growing celebrity status to eloquently highlight issues concerning race and racial profiling – said that U.K. TV had so far “failed” to ensure groups felt represented.

“If we fail to represent, we are in danger of losing people to extremism,” he said, adding it would lead those from minority backgrounds to “switch off and retreat to fringe narratives, to bubbles online and sometimes even off to Syria.”

Echoing the lecture given by Idris Elba last year, Ahmed said that actors from diverse backgrounds were forced to head across the Atlantic to find decent roles. “We end up going to America to find work. I meet with producers and directors here, and they say ‘we don’t have anything for you, all our stories are set in Cornwall in the 1600s’.”

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter last year, the actor expressed his own desire to directly address the situation, saying he was planning a series about three generations of a British-Pakistani family, which he would direct himself.

“If we don’t step up and tell a representative story … we are going to start losing British teenagers to the story that the next chapter in their lives is written with ISIS in Syria,” he told Parliament. “We are going to see the murder of more [members of parliament] like Jo Cox because we’ve been mis-sold a story that is so narrow about who we are and who we should be.”

Ahmed’s lecture came the same day the BBC revealed the results of a staff census into diversity, showing that 14.5 percent of its workforce was from black, Asian or minority ethnic backgrounds. The public broadcaster is aiming for this figure to reach 15 percent by 2020.
