As the disturbing story of the beheading of an American woman and injury to another unfolds, more people are beginning to become aware that we DO have a problem in America. It is no longer the problem “over there”. It’s here on our soil and the incident today is not the first.
On June 25, Ali Muhammed Brown murdered Brendan Tevlin while he sat in his vehicle at a red light. After unloading ten shots into Brendan’s car, he moved the body to the passenger side and drove away in the vehicle. He left the vehicle in an apartment complex. Originally law enforcement investigated this heinous crime as a robbery gone wrong, but Ali Muhammed Brown was very forth-coming about his reasoning for this murder, as well as others he committed.
During questioning Brown very simply stated, “All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government. So a life for a life.” He felt like he was doing his small part in retaliation for the Muslims lost in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria.
Can someone tell me WHY this did not make headline news all over the country? Greta Van Susteren did as much as she could to bring attention to this and even interviewed his precious, broken parents. Martha MacCallum also was very vocal in her coverage and disdain for lack of proper media coverage.
Fast forward to today, just a few months later and after ISIS called for lone wolf attacks on American soil, we have what happened in Oklahoma. Already being dubbed “workplace violence” by the Administration, we have learned that Alton Nolan returned to the workplace after being fired, decapitated one woman and was working on another victim when he was shot and stopped. At first it may seem like workplace violence, but witnesses reported that Nolan had tried to convert coworkers to Islam. It was also reported that he was shouting pro-Islam rhetoric while on his rampage. Why should his firing alone define it as a workplace violence incident? Shouldn’t we consider all the facts such as his Facebook posts and rants on social media? Was the fact he had tried to convert co-workers and the shouting of Islāmic rhetoric also grounds to consider this as being something more sinister?
America we need to wake up! I know it is so much easier to close our eyes and bury ourselves in Hollywood and other feel-good activities. Pretending that something is not happening does not negate reality. America is under attack and these incidents will only get worst until we stop being politically correct and arm ourselves with true common sense.
