At Umpqua Community College in Oregon Chris Harper Mercer walked onto the campus, targeted a classroom, killed the teacher and murdered students on American soil after asking them what their religion was. Christians, it has been reported were executed with a shot to the head while others received wounds to their legs if they refused to answer or answered in the negative.
Yet, little to no information about the shooter was released for hours. One survivor’s mother told CNN that the shooter asked each student to stand up and declare his/her religious faith and then shot them depending on their answer.
Doesn’t this sound familiar?
On Thursday April 2, 2015, 147 students were massacred at Garissa College in Kenya. Christian students were specifically targeted and Muslim students were released. No one attempted to stop the attackers and no one told them it was not “Allah’s will to kill the infidel.”
Why would they, since such instruction is exactly what is found in the Qur’an?
“When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds, then set them free, either by grace or ransom, until the war lays down its burdens.” (47:4).
“Slay them wherever ye find them and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter.” (2:191).
ISIS is now taking credit on Twitter for the Oregon shooting. The tweet was sent out by @K_H_O00 tweeted the below, which the below screenshot evidences, before Twitter suspended its account.
Yet few are talking about the shooter’s connection to Islam. Instead, the conversation turns to “gun control.” The same is true of other recent widely publicized murders.
Why is it that when the Charleston, South Carolina shooting took place, a tragedy to be sure, the media immediately reported the identity of the shooter, where he was from, and labeled him a “right wing racist?” Well, not really. Instead, the response was that America needs stronger gun control laws because guns kill.
Why is it that when the reporter and cameraman were killed and the interviewee was shot in Roanoke, Virginia, that details about the murders were unavailable for hours? Details including the identity of a Black, racist homosexual who decided to shoot his White colleagues alleging that the Charleston shooting was sufficient justification to commit murder.
Again, the consistent response, wasn’t the fact that this was a hate crime, but that America needs stronger gun control laws.
Even more telling is that few in the media are reporting the non-coincidence that the National Guardsman Alex Skarlatos, one of the Americans who tackled the terrorist on an Amsterdam-Paris train, is from this very Oregon community and attends this very college.
Yet, the response from the Resident of the White House: silence and the need for more gun laws.
Obama downplayed and ignored the Muslim from Kuwait who had recently returned from Jordan to gun down five U.S. Marines on American soil in Chattanooga, Tenn. In fact, authorities investigated a text message from the shooter Mohammad Abdulazeez to his friend before the attack, which included a verse from the Qur’an: “Whoever shows enmity to a friend of mine, then I have declared war against him.”
The response from Obama for Sergeant Brandon Mendoza who was gunned down by an illegal alien, again was silence.
Yet, Obama welcomed to the White House a child Jihadi protégé Ahmed Mohamed, who created a fake bomb, called it a “clock,” brought it to school, and was arrested. In response, the White House tweeted:
“Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House?,” @POTUS tweeted. “We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.”
In every instance of Islamic violence Obama invents his own narrative of the event. Obama was “heart broken” about Roanoke, yet refused to address, let alone mention, the racist hate-filled comments and manifesto spoken and written by the killer, focusing, rather on the dangers of guns.
Once again, the Resident in Chief chose to ignore the targeting of the school of an American hero who prevented the murder of hundreds on a European train, to ignore the testimony of several witnesses that Christians were targeted in the Oregon attack, and instead used the tragedy as an opportunity to push his gun removal agenda.
Mr. Resident, We the People are on to you. You can fool us no more. Your omission is commission of aiding and abetting the fundamental destruction of our nation by refusing to name, convict, and deport Islamists. You, Mr. Resident, are the enemy within.
