“Two gunmen were killed Sunday after opening fire on a security officer outside a provocative contest for cartoon depictions of Prophet Muhammad in Texas and a bomb squad was called in to search their vehicle as a precaution, authorities said, “ reported the Associated Press.
Provocative is ISIL executing 21 Coptic Christians – especially to the majority of Christ-followers around the world.
The gunfight took place outside the Mohammed Art Exhibit event at the Curtis Culwell Center in suburban Garland, Texas. Police said the suspects began shooting wounding a security guard, and along with traffic officer, killed both suspects.
In January, gunmen attacked the offices of Charlie Hebdo,the French satirical magazine that has a history of depicting Mohammed, and killed 12 people. The following month a gunman attacked a free speech forum in Copenhagen, Denmark, who was angry over depictions of Mohammed.
Federal authorities identified the suspects as Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi.
Indicted in January 2010 after lying to the FBI after telling investigators he hadn’t discussed traveling to Somalia to engage in “violent jihad.” A year later Simpson received three years probation, once convicted.
Oh, and the FBI had Simpson on their watch-list for the last 10 years.
And true to their nature, Progressives with the aid of the media, have been quick to point out that the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI,)which organized the event, is an ‘anti-Muslim hate group’ as claimed by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC.) However, the same Progressives and their media mouth-pieces failed to point out that in 2014 the FBI severed its relationship with the SPLC, after being exposed for it’s “anti-Christian hatred.”
And does anyone in the media recall Andres Serrano’s “Piss Christ” — a crucifix in a jar of urine that won a competition sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts? Those who denounce AFDI for sponsoring the contest should consider Serrano’s detractors, none of whom were violent.
As Rush Limbaugh asked: “If Americans are to respect and obey the laws of Islam that say drawing pictures of Mohammed is not permitted…why don’t we respect Islam’s punishment for gays and women, hmm?”
After the shooting, authorities escorted attendees to another room in the conference center. Once there, a woman held up an American flag, and the crowd sang “God Bless America,” followed by the National Anthem.
Chants of “USA, USA, USA” could be heard throughout the arena after the songs concluded. Also, two members of the group led prayers for the wounded security officer and for the officers protecting the group against further attacks.
It appears there are U.S. citizen’s who will not back down from terror or any threat that tries to stop” the right of the people peaceably to assemble,” and “abridging the freedom of speech…” as stated in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
The day that no American stands up for the constitution is the day radical Islam and Sharia Law win.
