That's the Nation of Islam, the racist hate group whose leader had met with Obama and the Congressional Black Caucus, and who had been praised by Women's March leaders. I'm guessing they don't have much to say about this.
A Florida man allegedly shouted “Allah Akbar” repeatedly as police arrested him for shooting his wife, stabbing his two children, and setting his house ablaze.
Police arrested Ronnie Oneal, who identifies as a member of The Nation of Islam, at the house of his partner Kenyatta Barron, in Riverview, Fla., in response to a 911 call from Barron claiming that she had been shot, according to Tampa Bay Times.
Officers found Barron dying of a gunshot wound in the front yard of a neighboring house. Firefighters were responding to a fire set in Barron’s house and found Barron and Oneal’s 9-year-old son, Ronnie Oneal IV, alive but suffering from burns and stab wounds and the couple’s 11-year-old daughter dead from stab wounds.
The dispatcher who answered Barron’s call allegedly said she could hear a male yelling “Allah Akbar” in the background, according to Fox13. Minutes after Barron’s call, Oneal called police, saying, “I’ve just been attacked by some white demons. Her name is Ke-Ke and she tried to kill me and I just killed her.”
Officers said that Oneal continually shouted “Allah Akbar” from the back of the police cruiser in which they placed him.
Never a good sign.
Allahu Akbar on its own is bad enough. But the Nation of Islam also teaches its followers that white people are subhuman demons created by a mad scientist who will then be destroyed by UFOs. They're taught that monkeys descended from white people. And this combination of two racist ideologies is poisonous. The NOI has a long history of violence. This is only the latest example of it.
We need a dialogue about racism. And we need to discuss why so many black leaders have an open door for a racist hate group.
