The usual rule is that a crime committed by an immigrant from a Muslim country is always due to mental illness.
And so we’re already being told that Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, the Boulder mass shooter terrorist, is suffering from mental illness. You’ll have to pardon my skepticism since the media and the authorities have spent two decades telling us that every Muslim terrorist is really mentally ill.
Muslim terrorists in Europe have been found not guilty because they used drugs and were deemed therefore to be mentally ill.
After a brief window where Democrats and their media were hoping for an appropriately white terrorist, they ended up with Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, and we’re already being fed the familiar narrative about mental illness and Islamophobia.
Alissa, whose family emigrated from Syria, may have been suffering from mental illness, according to his 34-year-old brother, Ali Aliwi Alissa.
The brother told CNN Tuesday that in high school bullies made fun of Alissa’s name and for being Muslim and that may have contributed to him becoming “anti-social.”
Alissa had become increasingly “paranoid” around 2014, believing he was being followed and chased, according to his brother. At one point, the young man covered the camera on his computer with duct tape so he could not be seen, said the brother, who lives with Alissa.
“He always suspected someone was behind him, someone was chasing him,” Ali Alissa said.
You know who else is paranoid? Terrorists.
This sounds a lot like Anwar Al-Awlaki’s paranoia about being followed around in America. And indeed he was being tracked.
The media and the Democrats want to make this a gun control issue. It’s not. It’s an immigration issue.
This is the sort of thing the media is trying to spin as mental illness.
Alissa was born in Syria and spent most of his life in Colorado, he wrote on Facebook. He wrote about Islam on social media and said “Muslims might not be perfect but Islam is.”
Alissa wrote in July 2019, “Yeah if these racist islamophobic people would stop hacking my phone and let me have a normal life I probably could.”
Marvel said Alissa was often concerned he was being targeted for his Muslim faith. He said he was “pretty cool” until someone made him mad.
“He would talk about him being Muslim and how if anybody tried anything, he would file a hate crime and say they were making it up,” Marvel said. “It was a crazy deal. I just know he was a pretty cool kid until something made him mad, and then whatever made him mad, he went over the edge — way too far.”
According to his older brother’s Facebook page, which has been taken down, his family was originally from Ar Raqqah, Syria. Alissa’s most recent post on his own Facebook page was on September 18, 2020. His page has also been taken down.
His most recent public post was a shared post from the Muslim Hub.
In March 2019, Alissa shared a post about the Christchurch, New Zealand, mosque shooting, posting a meme that said, “The Muslims at the. #christchurch mosque were not the victims of a single shooter. They were the victims of the entire Islamophobia industry that vilified them.”
Alissa said he was not very political in a post in 2016 before the presidential election. But he at times shared anti-Trump posts. In June 2019, he shared a post from PBS NewsHour about myths about immigration and the U.S. economy and added, “Why refugees and immigrants are good for America.”
