Happy New Year and Allahu Akbar!
Muslim terrorist attacks keep happening. And we just keep ignoring them. Most of the attacks these days are broken up in the plot stage. But not all of them. This one follows a very familiar pattern.
It’s actually the third Muslim machete attack on NYPD officers.
The alleged Islamic extremist who attacked multiple NYPD officers with a machete near the New Year’s Eve ball drop in Times Square has been identified as 19-year-old Trevor Bickford, multiple law enforcement sources said Sunday.
The cops were working the security detail when two of them were struck in the head with a large knife in what police are investigating as a possible targeted attack around 10 p.m., the sources said…
But police sources said the FBI in Boston has an open case on him and he is on something called a guardian list because of his radicalization. Bickford’s aunt notified authorities because he apparently made statements to her indicating a desire to go fight in Afghanistan, police sources said.
The pattern, as I said, appears to be familiar.
Bickford converted to Islam. His family appears to have been supportive of the decision even though he’s got a brother in the military. But Americans are incessantly lectured about how wonderful Islam is. So why wouldn’t they be?
He went down the pipeline of online Islamic preachers, likely introduced to him at his local mosque, and decided that the essence of Islam is Jihad. And he was right. He wanted to live out real Islam by going to fight where the Jihad is. The appeal of ISIS apparently faded enough that he wanted to go to Afghanistan. Red flags went up. The FBI probably came by and interviewed him, accomplishing nothing except to let him know that he was being watched. Feeling the walls closing in, he decided to try and go out with a bang, using the traditional Islamic tool of a blade and some infidels at an infidel celebration.
The plan was probably to take out the cops and then start in on the civilians. In real life, people are harder to machete than in whatever fantasies Trevor, who probably hasn’t gone by that name in a while, was living out.
Don’t worry though, we’ll be told that this has nothing to do with Islam. The religion of peace is wonderful. But it does come with some sharp objects included.
