Actual journalism just requires honesty. But PR means always being ready to spin anything.
The media thought an awesome new political gift had landed in its lap when a knife-wielding attacker rammed into two officers outside a barrier, killing one Capitol Police officer, then emerging with a knife, only to be shot.
News stories immediately began linking the attack to the Capitol Riot… even though it was much more indicative of the kind of Islamic terrorist attacks that we had been seeing in Europe.
And then the news came that Noah Green, the alleged attacker, was a follower of Farrakhan and his racist hate group, the Nation of Islam. Reports are that he also went by Noah X.
This is hardly the first time that followers of the Nation of Islam have engaged in violence and terrorist.
But the authorities were quick to declare that a car-ramming of officers at a governor site, followed by an attempted stabbing, was not terrorism.
“Without evidence,” as the media would say.
The question is where’s the deplatforming of the Nation of Islam? President Trump has been so banned by Facebook that even video of an interview with him is being taken down, while the Nation of Islam is for the most part being allowed to continue spreading its hate and to radicalize new recruits across social media. Numerous members of Congress and the entertainment industry have appeared at NOI events.
Including Barack Obama.
Where’s the deplatforming and reckoning for supporting extremism?
“My faith is one of the only things that has been able to carry me through these times and my faith is centered on the belief of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as Jesus, the Messiah, the final divine reminder in our midst. I consider him my spiritual father. Without his guidance, his word, and his teachings that I’ve picked up on along the way, I would have been unable to continue. So I wanted to give a personal testimony for the man whose accomplished such a great mission for the liberation of us under the teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, brought forth by Allah, in the person of Master Fard Muhammad,” a Facebook account in the name of Noah Green, signed Noah X, posted.
Later, Green mentions that he had been inspired to go into business after listening to a Farrakhan lecture titled, “Business is Warfare”, but that he had failed, as, in his own words, “Allah… has chosen me for other things.”
He then urges everyone to have faith in Farrakhan “as the man who carry us through the dark hour.”
How long will Democrats and Big Tech continue to collaborate with the radicalizers of the Capitol Hill terrorist?
