After embarking on his first semester at Ohio State University, 19 year old naturalized Somali Refugee Abdul Razak Ali Artan complained in an interview with his school’s student newspaper about the portrayal of Muslims in the media. “I’m a Muslim. It’s not what the media portrays me to be.” The reason for his concern: “I wanted to pray in the open, but I was kind of scared with everything going on in the media,” he stated. “I don’t blame them,” he continued. “It’s the media that put that picture in their heads so they’re just going to have it, and it’s going to make them feel uncomfortable.”
Three months later, he carried out an ISIS inspired attack, whereas he attempted to run a crowd of students over before embarking on a stabbing spree. Luckily, Abdul was the only causality as police quickly sent him to the afterlife.
The true insanity didn’t begin until after his death. Would you believe that simply due to the color of his skin, Abdul would be the kind of martyr groups-like Black Lives Matter are happy to rally behind? Because of COURSE they are…
According to Pamela Geller:
Activists at Ohio State University held a protest this week that framed the killing of Abdul Razak Ali Artan during a terror attack as unjustified.
Eleven students were injured Nov. 28 when Mr. Artan turned his car into a weapon. The Somali immigrant and logistics management student was shot by Ohio State University Police Department Officer Alan Horujko, 28, before he could execute victims with a butcher knife.
Maryam Abidi, a fourth-year in women’s, gender and sexuality studies, defended the protest in a statement to the campus newspaper. She said Mr. Artan, 18, was added to a list of names of those wrongly killed by cops because lethal force cannot bring justice.
“In some cases, the deceased may have committed acts of violence against others before they were killed,” Ms. Abidi told the Lantern Thursday. “Perhaps they were domestic abusers, perhaps they threatened or killed others. This possibility is not something to shy away from. The protest against police brutality extends to the innocent and the guilty alike, because we know that no matter the crime, justice and due process don’t come from a cop’s bullet.”
Can you say INSANE?
Does circumstance matter? Do I need to remind these people that we should be judging people not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character? To defend a terrorist on the basis of his skin color is more racist than anything I’ve seen in a while…
