Radical Imam Anjem Choudary Says on Live TV that Pamela Geller She Should be Put to Death for Hosting Mohammed Cartoon Contest (VIDEO)

WELCOME TO ISLAM FREEDOM OF SPEECH …

If you missed it, watch below the amazing exchange from FOX News – Hannity between Radical London Imam Anjem Choudary and Pamela Geller.  During the interview, Iman Choudary said that Pamela Geller should be brought in front of a Sharia court and put to death for her actions. That is correct, on LIVE TV Choudary called for the death of Geller and wanted her dead for deliberately hosting a cartoon contest that insulted the prophet Mohammad. The hell with free protected speech as afforded by the United States Constitution, this Iman wants Geller in front of a Muslim Sharia court and be put to death. Welcome to Islam, the religion of Peace.

After Geller had to listen to the vile threats from Choudary, it was her turn to talk; however, the radical Iman kept interrupting her. That was when Pam Geller had the line of the night and said to Anjem Choudary, “I’m talking, sir … I know you’re used to stepping over women but you’re not going to have it here.”

Second Garland, TX ‘Muhammad Art & Cartoon Contest’ Shooter Identified as 34 Year Old Nadir Soofi

SECOND ISLAMIST IDENTIFIED …

The authorities have identified the second Garland, Texas gunman radical Islamist who opened fire at the draw ‘Muhammad Art & Cartoon Contest’ as 34 year old Nadir Soofi. He and his fellow jihadist, Elton Simpson, who were roommates and lived in Phoenix, AZ attacked the pro-free speech event and were shot dead by Garland police. Simpson was reportedly known to the FBI for his possible terrorist ties; however, Soofi appears not to have been. Imagine that, you are the roommate of a supposed terrorist and no one thinks to look at his actions. Really? One thing is for certain, we will no longer have to worry about either one of them now.

The two men attended the Islamic Center of North Phoenix together.

Nadir Soofi

Authorities in Texas have identified Nadir Soofi as the second gunman who opened fire on a “Draw Muhammad” art contest in a Dallas suburb on Sunday night.

Soofi, authorities say, shared an apartment in Phoenix with Elton Simpson, who was convicted of lying to federal authorities in 2011 and was considered a terrorist suspect. The two men attended the Islamic Center of North Phoenix together.

Just minutes before Soofi and Simpson launched their attack at a community center in Garland, Texas, the two men posted messages on social media accounts with the hashtag “#TexasAttack.” Groups such as ISIS picked up on the hashtag and posted messages of support for the two gunmen, who were then killed by a police officer outside the building.

CNN: What we know about the Garland shooters,  Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi.

ELTON SIMPSON

He may have been an ISIS supporter

While U.S. authorities investigate whether Sunday’s shooting has any link to international terrorism, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack. In a radio broadcast, the terror group referred to Simpson and Soofi as two of its “soldiers” and and threatened more attacks.

Moments before the shootout, Simpson posted an ominous tweet with the hashtag #texasattack: “May Allah accept us as mujahideen.”

The tweet also said Simpson and his fellow attacker had pledged allegiance to “Amirul Mu’mineen,” which means “the leader of the faithful.” CNN terrorism analyst Paul Cruickshank said that probably refers to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi.

Earlier, Simpson had asked his readers on Twitter to follow an ISIS propagandist.

After the shooting, the same propagandist tweeted: “Allahu Akbar!!!! 2 of our brothers just opened fire.”

NADIR SOOFI

He died near where he was born

Soofi was born in Garland and spent the first three years of his life there, his mother said, according to The Dallas Morning News.

“He was raised in a normal American fashion,” Sharon Soofi said. “Yes, he was very politically involved with the Middle East. Just aware of what’s going on. I don’t know if something snapped or if Elton Simpson was just working on him.”

He left behind an 8-year-old son

Sharon Soofi also said her son had an 8-year-old boy whom he adored.

“He put his son above everything,” she said. “The hard thing to comprehend is why he would do this and leave an 8-year-old son behind.”

He went to a prestigious private school

ISIS Claims Responsibility for ‘Draw Muhammad Contest’ Attack in Garland, Texas

ISIS has claimed responsibility Tuesday for the Sunday’s attack at a Muhammad Drawing Contest in Garland, Texas.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack outside a Prophet Mohammed cartoon contest in Garland, Texas  and warned of more attacks to come. In a broadcast on its official radio channel Tuesday, the group said two Al Khilafa soldiers opened fire outside the event in Garland.

ISIS may claim responsibility for the attack, but one thing is certain, DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS!!! A Garland police officer killed both Islamists with his police issued revolver. Elton Simpson  and Nadir Soofi were armed with assualt weapons and wearing bullet-proof vests. Garland’s finest took them both out, both radical Islamists won’t be down for Sal?t.

FOX News:

The claim was made in an audio message on the group’s Al Bayan radio station, based in the Syria city of Raqqa, which ISIS has proclaimed to be the capital of its self-proclaimed caliphate. It is the first time ISIS has taken credit for an attack on U.S. soil, though it was not immediately clear whether the group’s claim was an opportunistic co-opting of a so-called “lone wolf” attack as its own.

The message described the shooting suspects as “two soldiers of the caliphate” and added “We tell America that what is coming is more bitter and harder and you will see from the soldiers of the Caliphate what harms you.”

Officials have not said whether they believe the attack was motivated by terrorism. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement Monday that law enforcement authorities are investigating the men’s motives and all circumstances surrounding the attack.

One Gunman in Garland, TX ‘Muhammad Art & Cartoon Contest’ Shooting Identified … Elton Simpson, of Arizona Who Was Previously the Subject of a Terror investigation

According to KTRK, ABC13, is reporting that one of the suspected gunmen has been identified, who was killed last night by Garland, Texas police outside of the ‘Muhammad Art & Cartoon Contest’ as Elton Simpson. According to the FBI, Simpson was a previous subject of a terror investigation. Hmm, how did he seem to slip through the cracks if they knew who he was? How does an individual who has ties to terror allowed to walk among us? At least he will not be able to partake in another terror attack, ever. Also, the second shooter was his roommate, both of who were from Arizona. Both gunman were shot dead by Garland police last night outside of the Curtis Culwell Center.

ABC News can confirm that one of the suspects is Elton Simpson, an Arizona man who was previously the subject of a terror investigation. He’s from phoenix and television stations in Phoenix are reporting the second shooter was Simpson’s roommate. We’re still waiting on his name.

The FBI believes Simpson sent out a tweet using the hashtag #texasattack about a half hour before shooting.

From ABC News, Simpson was well known to the FBI. Five years ago he was convicted for lying to federal agents about his plans to travel to Africa, but a judge ruled the government did not adequately prove he was going to join a terror group there. Thanks judge.

Below is the Tweet that was sent out prior to the attack in Garland Texas. Twitter has suspends account that warned about a ‘Texas attack’ 15 minutes before incident at anti-Muslim event.

Twitter appears to have suspended an account that tweeted about an attack in Texas 15 minutes before shots were fired at an anti-Muslim event in the city of Garland.

Under the profile name “Shariah is Light”, the tweet read (See Update II): “The bro with me and myself have given bay’ah to Amirul Mu’mineen. May Allah accept us as mujahideen [jihadists]. Make dua. #texasattack.”

The tweet was posted at 6.35pm local time in Texas – 15 minutes before Garland Police Department received its first reports of gunfire at the anti-Muslim event. In a tweet sent three hours before its last, the profile recommended people follow another account – @AbuHu55ain – which has also now been suspended.

Shooting at Muhammad Cartoon Contest at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, TX at Pamela Geller Texas Free Speech Event (Update: Two Gunman Dead)

A SHOOTING HAS TAKEN PLACE OUTSIDE THE TEXAS FREE SPEECH EVENT IN GARLAND, TX HELD BY PAMELA GELLER …

According to FOX News, two individuals were shot outside of the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, TX where the Texas Free Speech Event was taking place. The center was put on lock-down following the shooting. The ‘free speech” event (VIDEO) was a ‘Muhammad Art and Cartoon Contest’. This was the same location that hosted a pro-Islam contest last month. Of course there were no gunman trying to kill people at that conference who disagreed with that one.

The First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest will be hosted by the Curtis Caldwell Center.

Two individuals were shot dead by police outside of the event as it was reported, “two males drove up to the front of the building in a car,” as the event was coming to an end. “Both males were armed and began shooting at a Garland … security officer. Garland Police officers engaged the gunmen, who were both shot and killed.” It is probably not that much of a stretch that the two gunman that were killed were Islamists looking to quell free speech.

Female Air Force Veteran Michelle Manhart Arrested by Valdosta State University Police for Protecting US Flag from Desecration … Valdosta State University Loves Flag Burners More so Than Flag Wavers

WELCOME TO THE POLICE STATE THAT HAS BECOME THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA … AND THE SHAMEFUL BEHAVIOR OF COLLEGE CAMPUSES.

There are not too many times that I take the side against law enforcement, this is one of them. SHAME ON YOU VALDOSTA STATE.

38 year old Michelle Manhart, a military veteran was detained but not charged by Valdosta State University police after she approached a group of protesters on campus who were walking on an American flag and took it from them. The incident where it would appear to be a protected police act was at Valdosta State in Georgia. As part of their protest against racial inequality, some students stamped on the American flag. Because that makes all the sense in the world, these fools trampled on the very symbol of a country that provides them their freedoms. Manhart was given a criminal trespass warning which effectively bans her from any university activity, including graduation and football games. I am guessing that Manhart really has no plans on attending any Valdosta State football games.  As I matter of fact, neither do I. A word to these ass-bite protesters, if you don’t like this country and you think you are being treated unfairly, LEAVE!!!

“I did not want anything like this, but I got a call from a student who told me that the flag was on the ground, and they were walking on it,” said Manhart. “I was just going over there to pick up the flag off the ground. I don’t know what their cause is, but I went to pick it up because it doesn’t deserve to be on the ground.”

Manhart said she was taken into custody by VSU police officers who then returned the flag to the demonstrators. She admitted to The Valdosta Daily Times that she resisted arrest after seeing the flag being returned.

Flag fracas at Valdosta State – Protesters walk on Stars and Stripes; veteran banned from university for taking flag from demonstrators.

The cowards who desecrated the American flag refused to identify their groups name. What a bunch of brave souls you are, almost as gutless as the Valdosta University police.

Michelle Manhart, an Air Force veteran, said she was not planning to take the flag from the group, but she had heard about the group’s recent campus demonstrations and wanted to take action.

“I did not want anything like this, but I got a call from a student who told me that the flag was on the ground, and they were walking on it,” said Manhart. “I was just going over there to pick up the flag off the ground. I don’t know what their cause is, but I went to pick it up because it doesn’t deserve to be on the ground.”

Manhart said she was taken into custody by VSU police officers who then returned the flag to the demonstrators. She admitted to The Valdosta Daily Times that she resisted arrest after seeing the flag being returned.

The group reportedly declined to press charges against Manhart. The officers attempting to detain her also declined to press charges for resisting.

Instead, Manhart was given a criminal trespass warning which effectively bans her from any university activity, including graduation and football games, said Andy Clark, vice president for enrollment, marketing and communications.

The demonstrators declined to identify their group to The Valdosta Daily Times or speak with a reporter about their cause, but they did engage VSU students in heated debate.

Check out these sad, pathetic little police officers take down Michelle Manhart. It took four of these little men to bring her down and arrest Michelle Manhart as one of the loser cops tells people to back up as no one seems to be near . I hope you all are so proud of yourself. The four of you are a complete and total disgrace.

Meet the brave Valdosta State University that arrested a woman for protecting the American Flag

Michelle Manhart arrest2

Just curious, would you be doing this if she was black?

Michelle Manhart arrest1

Valdosta State University loves flag burners more so than flag wavers.

Valdosta State University, which is funded by tax dollars, issued two statements defending the desecration of the American flag.

“We respect the rights of people to peacefully assemble and voice their opinions,” the statement read. “Our primary concern is the safety of our students, faculty and staff and our ability to carry out our responsibilities to all our students on campus. We are monitoring the situation.”

On Saturday, the president of Valdosta State, sent me this statement:

“The American flag represents everything that is best about our country,” Dr. William McKinney said. “As the Supreme Court has held, one of those things is the right to free speech, which includes the right to disrespect even the symbol of our country. While I firmly disagree with the actions of the protesters, I understand their right to protest.”

Another Liberal Hypocrite … Former SNL Cast Member & Actor Dan Aykroyd Says “America is Flat-Out Gun Crazy” … Coming from Someone Who Played a Hitman in Movies

Hmm, so it’s okay for Dan Aykroyd to own and fire a fire arm, but its those other people that should not be allowed to.

Why can’t liberal actors just shut up and act? No one really cares what their political or social opinions are. Being that Dan Aykroyd is from Canada, he probably needs to pretty much shut up when it comes to making comments that “America is Flat-Out Gun Crazy”. During an interview with the HUFFPO, Dan Aykroyd then offered some less-lethal alternatives to guns like taser, sound system that you can use to disable someone,  high-frequency generators and nets that you can fire and it completely closes over the top part of the body.  All I can say is … Jane Dan, you ignorant slut.  What’s the matter, you forgot about the use of unlicensed nuclear accelerators (VIDEO)? Seeing that Dan Aykroyd appears to be US Constitutionally challenged we will just remind him that The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

The Blaze:

In short he said, “America’s flat-out gun crazy. That’s it, man.”

While he quickly added that “of course, it’s guns in the wrong hands,” Aykroyd then offered some “less-lethal alternatives.”

“There’s a Taser, there’s a sound system that you can use to disable someone, there’s a high-frequency generator that you can use, there’s a net that you can fire and it completely closes over the top part of the body,” he said. “So why aren’t we looking into these alternatives?”

Aykroyd, who’s from Canada, said that in his country “at a certain point, you just let the guy go.” He added that “usually chases are called off once you get to 50 miles an hour up in a street there in Canada. You back off. You don’t chase them anymore.”

LIBERAL HYPOCRITE DOUBLE STANDARD

Hmm, it would appear that Dan Aykroyd had no issue of participating and getting paid for being a hit man in the movie ‘Grosse Pointe Blank’ and partaking in thus “gun crazy” shooting scene. But of course, that’s different.

Donald Trump at the 2015 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum at Annual NRA Meetings in Nashville, TN … “Barack Obama Completely Incompetent”

Donald Trump at NRA-ILA Leadership Forum … I promise you one thing, if I run for president and I win, the Second Amendment will be totally protected.”

During Trump’s speech before the NRA, The Donald called Barack Obama completely incompetent and doesn’t know what he is doing and he said that we have negotiators dealing with the Iran nuclear deal that have no clue. Donald Trump said that the negotiators should read his book, ‘The Art of the Deal’. We have people who don’t know what they are doing. Trump said we need a new president, we need new leadership, we need strength, and we need people who are respected.

Donald Trump went on to say, “I don’t know if he [Obama] has the interest of the country, he probably does, but as I said, I think the whole group lead by the leader is grossly, grossly incompetent.” Trump also went on to talk about the US economy, illegal immigration and jobs being sent to Mexico.

I would actually have to disagree with Donald Trump, I don’t think Obama is incompetent at all, I think he is purposely trying to destroy America from within. One does not spit on your allies and shake hands with dictators and make deals with countries who want to see your annihilation, unless you mean to.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) Wows Them at NRA Convention in Nashville, TN … “Our Country is in Crisis … The Answer is Not Going to Come from Washington, It’s Going to Come from You”

THE NRA HAS INVADED NASHVILLE, TN … Welcome NRA, its members and all pro-Second Amendment supporters!!!

Maybe there was no greater comment made last night by Sen. Ted Cruz than the following, “Our country is in crisis yet we’re gonna pull back and change the path we’re on, but the answer is not going to come from Washington, it’s going to come from you!!!”

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke to the NRA faithfully in Nashville, Tennessee at their Annual Meeting last night and began his speech with … GOD BLESS THE NRA. Cruz mocked Hillary Clinton and her email issues, praised the fact that the victims of the Fort Hood shooting victims finally got their Purple Hearts after 5 years, against the objection of the Obama administration.  Cruz went on to say, “It is a time for truth you cannot win a war on radical Islamic terrorism with the president who is unwilling to utter the words radical Islamic terrorist.”

Instead of a president who boycotts Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, imagine America’s standing unapologetically with the nation of Israel.  Imagine a commander in chief standing up with clarity and saying we will defeat radical Islamic terrorists. And under no circumstances will the nation of Iran be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons. Some weeks ago I join with 46 other senators signing a letter that we sent to Iran explaining that under the United States Constitution there are only two way something becomes a law, either it is a treaty ratified by two-thirds of the Senate or a law passed by both houses of Congress signed by the president. Well the Obama White House went a little hysterical about that letter.

Read Full transcript HERE.

Ted Cruz further went on to say to the folks in attendance, “you know we’re at a time a crisis. Here at home millions of people are hurting as the economies in stagnation. Abroad the Obama-Clinton foreign policy a leading from behind does not work. And d we’re saying an unprecedented threat to our liberties each and ever day from the Federal government,” but he said he was inspired by the words, deeds and actions of the NRA membership because they fight for their Constitutional rights.

Ted Cruz for President in 2016.

Ted Cruz Wows them in Nashville, Tells NRA: I’ve fought the conservative battles:

Sen. Ted Cruz, one of two declared Republican candidates for president, told National Rifle Association members in Nashville that he’s fought the conservative battles, unlike his opponents.

“In a Republican primary, every candidate’s going to stand up and say, ‘I oppose Obamacare,’ ” Cruz said at the NRA’s annual meeting Friday. “The question we ought to ask is, ‘Great, when have you stood up and fought Obamacare?’ “

“Every candidate is going to say they don’t support amnesty. Alright, great. When have you stood up and fought to stop the president’s illegal and unconstitutional executive action?”

Ted Cruz then thanked the NRA for standing up to the liberal Democrat and Barack Obama’s knee-jerk reaction to the tragic Sandy Hook shooting massacre in Connecticut. Cruz said he was proud to stand with his friends Sens. Mike Lee and Rand Paul:

You know we all remember two years ago the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook. Every one of us whose parents it was heartbreaking to see those little children murdered by that lunatic and yet we also remember the president’s response.  President Obama had an opportunity then he could have tried to bring people together in a bipartisan manner to say let’s go after violent felons let’s go after criminals let’s protect our kids and stop the bad guys. But instead he used as an excuse to try to come after the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.  I gotta tell you in the weeks and months that followed Sandy Hook, if you guys were sitting in the Senate Republican lunch, you would have jumped out the window. Because the Senate was there was this is unstoppable this is a freight train it can’t be stopped let’s get out of the way and I’ll tell you I was proud to stand with my friends Mike Lee and Rand Paul in sending an sending a very short two sentence letter to Harry Reid that we said we will filibuster any legislation that undermines the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

What happened next is that it slowed the liberal Democrat anti-Second Amendment train down and shed the light as to what was happening and that Democrats were trying to take political advantage of a terrible and tragic incident. That is when citizen action took place.

And that’s when the men and women in this room began to take over. In the weeks that followed each if you and millions of Americans lit up the phones. It started with three of us by the end to the next week we were up to 17 senators on the letter. Then we had our first vote we needed to get to 41, we only got to 31. And all our friends in the media said up, you failed you only got to 31. But like any meaningful military conflict it’s rarely one on the first skirmish. That 31 was a whip count and suddenly each of you knew every senator that had voted against the Second Amendment and heaven on earth descended on those senators. And thanks to the passionate leadership of the men and women in this room when it came to the senate floor every single wanna President Obama’s proposals to undermine the Second Amendment was voted down on the Senate floor.

University of Michigan Cancels ‘American Sniper’ Screening … ‘Made Students Feel Unsafe’ (Update U-M football coach Jim Harbaugh To the Rescue, Movie Back On)

REALLY … Maybe the University of Michigan should change their name from the Wolverines to the “Weenies”.

AMERICA, DO YOU REALIZE YOU ARE BEING DESTROYED FROM WITHIN RIGHT?  University of Michigan spokesman Rick Fitzgerald confirmed to The College Fix on Tuesday the movie, American Sniper” was cancelled because it made students feel unsafe. GOOD GRIEF!!! Instead, the University was going to show Paddington the Bear.  What kind of gutless cowards exist on college campuses today that continually play the victim card? You people are going to do well in life, but then again, these are the same folks that live in your parents home until your 30. Hey Michigan, you might want to change your fight song to …  Hail! to the victors “victims” valiant. Hail! to the conqu’ring heroes “cowards”.

However,  University of Michigan sophomore Jason Weaver still has the right to call himself a Wolverine as he said, “It would be nice to see the university … take a stand against outrageous claims of ‘student exclusion. The film American Sniper in no way creates student exclusion any more than Saving Private Ryan”. You would be 100% correct. But we can’t have anything on a college campus that would properly depict radical Muslims Islamists as Nazi’s.

What a sad state of affairs at our American Universities

University: ‘While our intent was to show a film, the impact of the content was harmful, and made students feel unsafe and unwelcome at our program’

A scheduled movie screening of “American Sniper” at the University of Michigan was abruptly cancelled Tuesday after nearly 300 students and others complained the film perpetuates “negative and misleading stereotypes” against Muslims.

“The movie American Sniper not only tolerates but promotes anti-Muslim … rhetoric and sympathizes with a mass killer,” according to an online letter circulated among the campus community via Google Docs that garnered the signatures.

The signers were mostly students, but also some staff, as well as the Muslim Students’ Association and the president of Students Allied for Freedom and Equality, a Palestinian solidarity group at UMich.

The online memo, titled a “collective letter from Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) and Muslim students on campus,” accused the public university of “tolerating dangerous anti-Muslim and anti-MENA propaganda” by showing the movie, the highest grossing film of 2014.

follows U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who served four combat tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom and was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corp Achievement Medals, and one Navy and Marine Corps commendation, according to his official Facebook page. But the protestors see him differently.

As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, more than 300 students protested the decision to screen the film because it advanced “negative and misleading stereotypes” against Muslims. The online petition was started by a “Palestinian solidarity group” called the Students Allied for Freedom and Equality and the Muslim Students’ Association. And the university folded like a cheap suit. Um, “negative and misleading stereotypes” … the actions depicted in American Sniper are the truth. I am so sorry if Muslim students can’t handle the truth … what do you think that radical Muslim Islamists act like? So is it a misleading stereotype to depict radical Muslim as savage, beheading murders?

UPDATE I: Jim Harbaugh endorses ‘American Sniper’ after U-M cancels showing

THAN YOU COACH HARBAUGH … FINALLY SOME GUTS COME TO ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN!!!

Harbaugh

Twitter – Jim Harbaugh

For four months, Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh’s Twitter feed has been a combination of entertainment, opponent tweaks and comments on his team.

Tonight, he walked into a university controversy.

On Tuesday, the university canceled a scheduled Friday night showing of the movie “American Sniper” due to pressure from Muslim and Arab students after a student-led petition drive challenged its depiction of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiments.

After 9:30 p.m., Harbaugh weighed in, with a message to his 215,000 followers.

UPDATE II : U-M reverses course, will show ‘American Sniper’ … Gutless Weenie UM administration tries to save face. 

After a day filled with intense controversy, the University of Michigan reversed course late Wednesday night and decided to show the movie “American Sniper” at its originally scheduled time and place.

“It was a mistake to cancel the showing of the movie ‘American Sniper’ on campus as part of a social event for students,” the statement from E. Royster Harper, the vice president of student life, said. It was sent just after 10:45 p.m. to the media.

“The initial decision to cancel the movie was not consistent with the high value the University of Michigan places on freedom of expression and our respect for the right of students to make their own choices in such matters.
