“Christians Can Jihad, Too”

Yes, they sure can, young white man. Thank you for pointing that out for all the nice Americans watching. Talking Points Memo has a short article about a youngster who allegedly set fire to a mosque.

Court documents obtained by the Associated Press show that Crawford ranted against Muslims in his conversations with police and said that Christians were also capable of jihad.

“You look like Obama. You are a Muslim like him,” a court document quotes Crawford as telling an officer after he was arrested on Dec. 14 for a charge unrelated to the firebombing. “Jihad goes both ways. Christians can jihad too.”

It’s Never Too Early to Assume the Killer is a Muslim

Wonkette culled some comments from Free Republic. These guys know what religion the killer is. Gotta be Muslim, right?

Nobody knows what’s really going on in Oslo or at the holiday camp island in Norway where a bombing and a shooting have left many people dead, but it’s always safe for American Idiots on the Internet to jump in with a suspect (“Muslims”) and a verdict (“guilty”) and a list of co-conspirators (“Obama and the liberals”) and a punishment (“kill ‘em all”). No matter that a tall blond man of “Norwegian appearance” and wearing a police uniform is described as the shooter on Norway’s Utoya Island — thee muslins are increasingly able to appear as whatever people or things they want to appear as, just like the Cylons or Harry Potter. Here’s what the foreign policy experts at FreeRepublic.com are saying about the attacks right now:

* But thank God we’re safe here in the US with the man-thing Janet Napitalano focusing on “white terrorists” rather than worrying herself about Muslim terrorists. /s

* As tragic as this is, at least when and if we ever get a president who really wants to fight terror, we’ll have reliable allies in the effort.

* Execute everyone involved!

Indeed! Execute all tall blond men of Norwegian appearance.

* “Wipe them out….All of them!”

Insightful tweet:

* RayburnThompson R. Alex Thompson
Dems just blocked a balanced budget, and there’s a terrorist attack in Norway… and #whenblackpeoplegetpaid is the top trending topic?

* This will not stop until a real war on islam begins… and we all know that it is muslim demons that are doing this.
The Norwegians need to round up every Muslim in the country and send them packing, immediately. We need to do the same thing, but of course we never will.

* That’s one thing the appeasers just don’t get. Sure they might not blow you up while you’re slowing giving up your way of life to theirs, but any holdups in that process will poush the warfare from cultural to general violence very quickly. Basically, submit or die. It’s what the islamics say and it’s what anyone with any sense understands. The PC types have no sense.

* That second explosion is a fake.

* Obviously this was retaliation by Islamic terrorists for the publication of cartoons 5, 6, years ago depicting Mohammad. As you can see Muslims never forget an affront… they are still fighting the invading Crusaders from 1500 years ago! We’re fighting this war on terrorism the wrong way. Instead of us just reacting to the threats and spending trillions of dollars in the process, what we need to do is that every time there’s a terrorist bombing we should select a Muslim city, at random, and bomb a few square blocks, equal to the terrorist bombing. That will give them something to think about…!

Haha, yes, the Crusades that began 1500 years ago. Before the birth of Muhammad, apparently.

* Interesting you mentioned them running the drug trade, I see reports the muslims push drugs in many non muslim countries. Interesting for such a devout people but they are victimizing non muslims, so it’s ok. I’ve also read they carry out Hatfield-McCoy type clan killings and wipe out muslim families down to the babies. They decide if you did something “wrong” to their family your whole seed is imperfect and they kill everyone. Meanwhile, we are taught how bad Christians are.

It’s simply beautiful that this commenter doesn’t see the irony of referring to the Hatfield-McCoy feud.

CNN called this a RANDOM act of terror
No. RANDOM would be if they killed Christane Amanpour.

Ugh.

Here’s an AP article about the attacker, which says he was “a right-winger with anti-Muslim views but no known links to hardcore extremists.” Disappointingly but not surprisingly, it does not mention his religion. I’m guessing it’s not Islam.

UPDATE: Let’s preemptively kill/arrest/deport everyone who looks like this? Yeah, that’ll fly.

UPDATE #2: The Guardianhas an article profiling this guy. Guess what! He is a Christian. Shocker.

Another significant event was being baptised into the Protestant church of “his own free will” at the age of 15. More recently, however, he had expressed his disgust at his own church. “Today’s Protestant church is a joke,” he wrote in an online post in 2009. “Priests in jeans who march for Palestine and churches that look like minimalist shopping centres. I am a supporter of an indirect collective conversion of the Protestant church back to the Catholic.”

And for the sake of search engines: Christian terrorism Christian terrorism Christian terrorism.

Christian Arrested for Planning Mass Murder

Here’s just another story of a violent Christian, and of course the American media downplays the role of Christianity in the planned violence. Because he’s Christian, duh, not Muslim.

Employees at a Motel 6 in Madison called police after Ralph Lang, 63, told them he had accidentally discharged a firearm in his room, according to a criminal complaint provided to The Wisconsin State Journal.

Lang told Madison Police Department Officer Angie Dyer that he had purchased the gun in 2009 to “lay out abortionists because they are killing babies.”

The criminal complaint (PDF) explains that he told the officer he intended to find the abortion doctor at the local Planned Parenthood clinic and “shoot him in the head.”

Asked if he intended to shoot only the doctor or the nurses too, he replied that he wished he “could line them up all in a row, get a machine gun, and mow them all down.”

Lang recalled that he was in Madison the prior week but did not murder anyone because he “was not 100% in sync with God.”

Officers found a map in the suspect’s room with dots in each state and the words “some abortion providers.” The phrase “Blessed Virgin Mary says Hell awaits any woman having an abortion” was also written on the map.

In 2007, Lang was arrested at the same Planned Parenthood clinic after he told an officer that the “Bible states that anyone involved in abortion should be executed.”

“God, Bible, virgin Mary.” Something tells me this story would be handled differently if he’d mentioned the qur’an and the sahaba, and called God “Allah.”

But What Religion is Loughner, Part 2

The AP had a long piece giving a little bit of background on America’s latest bigtime terrorist, Jared Loughner, who they refuse to label a terrorist although he was proud to declare himself one. All these paragraphs, yet neither the reporter nor the editor nor, apparently, the public thought to give a damn about his religion. This would be completely different if only one factor were different. It could be his name, say if there were a Muhammad or an Ahmad or even a Samir in there. It could be the appearance of being of African descent. A few tones darker, and the Malkins and Gellers would be making assumptions. It could be having taken a class in comparative religions or an attempt at learning a challenging foreign language. Or travel. All of those things would send the media machine shrikeing about “radicalization,” politicians bloviating, and reporters digging up Loughner’s and his family’s religious background like a pack of bloodhounds.

But Jared Loughner is named Jared Loughner and he’s blindingly white and apparently went through his life without being charmed by any other cultures. So although he very cleary carried out a premeditated act of multiple murder in a public place with the intend to change other people’s behavior, our media and politicians will not label him a terrorist.

Peter King, congressman and Irish terrorist sympathizer will continue with his plans to hassle the Muslim community in the US. The Jewish Anti-Defamation league will continue to be silent about anti-Muslim and anti-Arab bigotry. Geller, Malkin, Schlussel, Pipes, Spencer, and the rest of the “I’m a xenophobic ignoramus” choir will sing the same song they’ve been singing. “Muslims bad. Christian good.”

There is actually this one little bit about Christianity in the article. Notice how the reporter downplays it. This is the No True Scotsman fallacy: although Loughner is expressly talking about Christianity, the reporter (the supposedly impartial, unbiased reporter who is just giving us the facts, mind you) interjects his little disclaimer:

Loughner was arrested in October 2008 on a vandalism charge near Tucson after admitting he scrawled the letters “C” and “X” on a road sign in a reference to what he said was Christianity.

See? “In reference to what he said was Christianity.” I imagine the reporter or editor or both were expecting a firestorm of outrage if they left out “he said was.” Because the American public knows that if you leave out the ETA, the IRA, the Lord’s Resistance Army, the KKK, folks who assassinate doctors, and myriad others, Christianity is always peaceful today. Nevermind the Crusades and the Inquisition, which happened back in the mists of time.

Interestingly, to show how Christianity-soaked our country is, the Sheriff’s captain mentioned in the article is named Chris, the 9-year-old that Jared murdered is named Christina, and one of the reporters of this piece is named Christy. (Turns out there were five reporters involved, and although I used the male pronoun, most of them were women–good).

So as a friend of mine pointed out, there is no outcry that Loughner “lawyered up.” He remained silent and sought the legal help of a lawyer, just as we expect white Americans to do when they massacre. There were no calls to throw him into Guantanamo and let him moulder there. He was embraced by the US justice system, and the US public is perfectly happy with that. After all, he had mental problems and just needs help, the poor boy.

Oregon Terrorism Case; Religious Extremists Murder Two

You just don’t rate as a terrorist in the American media unless you’re Muslim and dark-skinned. Nevermind if you’re a religious fanatic who builds a bomb (even without FBI help!), sets it off in an occupied public place, and kills a couple of local police officers. You still won’t be called a terrorist.

Thanks to this site, Blue Oregon, and this site, Blogtown, I am just now learning about these two homegrown terrorists.

A CBS news article doesn’t even bother to mention their religious extremism. Not surprising, since Christianity is never blamed for violence in the United States. Statistics aren’t even kept. Wikipedia even deleted its “American terrorists” page.

From the Blogtown post:

Father and son Bruce and Joshua Turnidge are facing aggravated murder charges for allegedly building a bomb and planting it at a bank in Woodburn Oregon. The blast killed two police officers and took the leg of another who responded to a phone call warning employees to get out of the bank. When FBI agents stopped by his house, devout Christian Bruce Turnidge struck up conversation about the importance of the right to bear arms (saying, “Every ballot should come with a bullet.”) and called Obama a racial slur. His house was filled with weapons and friends testified as state witnesses at the trial that he had tried to organize an anti-government militia and cheered that the Oklahoma City bombings would “teach the government a lesson.”

…a family friend said the Turnridges had more than 50 conversations about how to blow up a bank.

Both blogs rightly point out that this case was handled completely differently because the perpetrators are white Christians.

Say, did you even hear about this guy? He’s a Serbian immigrant, very likely a Christian, although no media has bothered to tell us his so, who assembled the largest cache of home-made explosives in history. I say very likely a Christian because Serbia is known to have gone to some trouble to ethnically cleanse itself of Muslims.

An unemployed man was in police custody today after the discovery of the largest cache of homemade explosives ever found in the US.
Police were called to the home of George Jakubec after 49-year-old gardener Mario Garcia was seriously injured in an explosion.

He successfully injured somebody, too, but a brown man, and that’s no doubt part of why he didn’t get labeled SCARY TERRORIST. Seriously injure, apparently. Poor Mario.

In a little noticed report over the weekend, a gardener was in serious condition after triggering an explosion when he stepped in a powdery substance on the grounds.

Loonwatch addresses this here, in one of their “What if He Were a Muslim” posts.

On another note, I’m kind of wondering why the headline for the Mohamed Osman Mohamud story wasn’t “FBI Plots, Thwarts Bombing.”

I’m talking about this story.

But it may also just as easily be the case that the FBI — as they’ve done many times in the past — found some very young, impressionable, disaffected, hapless, aimless, inept loner; created a plot it then persuaded-manipulated-entrapped him to join, essentially turning him into a Terrorist; and then patted itself on the back once it arrested him for having thwarted a “Terrorist plot” which, from start to finish, was entirely the FBI’s own concoction.

More Homegrown, Christian Terrorists

Talking Points Memo has the story.

Nine members of the Christian militia group Hutaree have been indicted on multiple charges involving an alleged plot to attack police, including seditious conspiracy and attempted use of weapons of mass destruction, the U.S. Attorney in Michigan announced this morning.

————————
One thing driving me crazy about this story is that the Hutaree website claims that “Hutaree” means “Christian soldier,” without ever mentioning what language it supposedly is!
