CULTURE WARRIOR FIGHT FOR THE NARRATIVE AFTER TERROR SUSPECT ALLEGEDLY TARGETS KANSAS CITY: ISIS FANBOY OR ARMY VETERAN???



Conservative and liberal pundits are battling to place blame after today's terrorist charge allegedly targeted Kansas City.

It's good fun considering nothing happened and the closest this dude got to ISIS was a falafel shop near the place where he was thankfully caught by the Feds.

The rhetorical struggle . . .

According to the affidavit, the investigation began when the FBI became aware (through multiple confidential sources) of the suspects social media posts, in which he expressed animus towards the United States and suggested an adherence to radical Islamic ideology and a propensity for violence. He used several online aliases, including “Mohammed Junaid Al Amreeki,” “Junaid Muhammad,” “Rabbani Junaid Muhammad,” “Rami Talib,” “Ali Talib Muhammad.”

However . . .

He is a U.S. citizen who was born in Missouri. He was enlisted in the U.S. Army for less than a year, receiving a general discharge from service in mid-2013.

And so . . .

The underlying argument here is simple but culture warriors are too lame to come out and say it for fear of being rightfully smacked down by more reasonable people . . . Some liberals might blame the military industrial complex for allowing yet another unstable dude to pass through its ranks whilst many reactionaries rage against billions of Muslims for the allegedly devious plans of solitary keyboard warrior.

Another Kansas City native Gavin "Cosmo" Long who was a former Marine but insisted that his deadly shooting targeting cops was not affiliated with any other group.

Still, we should all credit open comments and social media spying for allowing a platform for (alleged) nut-jobs to voice their crazy.

Here's even more info . . .

He was both. That's much worse and even scarier when you think about.

It's called the fallacy of the false choice. It's actually not either or, but both and.

So you're saying Fox News is wrong for calling him a jihadi. Good for you Bob, way to stand up for your ideals!

Why does it make a difference what he believes? That is just another way to blame people who had nothing to do with it.

I blame the head scarves. That's the kind of argument that people really want to make. Just like Trump starting that riot in Sweden. Nice move!

The duct tape would have brought forth much devastation. Praise Jesus he did not use it.

Funny how people over react to the arrest of some crazy person but they don't care about all of the real murders in KCMO. Just shows you people's messed up priorities.

When I was in Basic Training two out of three who fell out in basic training were from Jefferson City. That town raises pussy's.

IT'S A MATTER OF SELF-SELECTION

The mentally ill, severely depressed, and mildly retarded among us, who take their keyboard warrior mission too seriously, will be surreptitiously contacted by undercover law enforcement in order to gauge the extent of their craziness.

Once the feds get their hooks into one of these functioning retards, they'll string them along with offers of money, plans, weapons, compatriots, until they've got them fully entrapped and primed for prosecution. The feds justify their budget, get a gold star from D.C., and plenty of positive PR from the media.

We saw it in Wichita, Topeka, KC, and elsewhere.

Bottom line, those stupid enough to follow the feds breadcrumbs, deserve to be locked up I suppose. We either just don't hear about the real threats, or they're few and far between here in the heartland.

Oh, sorta reminds about the narrative of some nasty woman's husband. Instead of ISIS Fanboy - Army veteran, Hilly's Billy was Assaulter/Philanderer - Rhodes Scholar.

JoJo said...

Excellent comment. I don't feel sorry for him but I do think he could also be a threat to himself as well.

8:40 Entrapped? Not even. Threats of potential terror warrant investigation for determining credibility. Just as disgusting pedophiles are notorious for initiating contacts with potential victims online, disruptors threatening harm and taking steps to carry out the harm have invited the scrutiny and possible prosecution.

Kudos to protection forces--local, state, federal and also to good citizen informants--KEEPING AMERICA SAFE, SANE, and GREAT!

Right 8:16, and keep kids away from a past Prez and his pal Epstein, the convicted pedo, who frequently. flew his Lolita Express to Orgy Island.

Plus, some bacha bazi indulging islamists should also be kept away from our kiddies, as plenty deployed U.S. military can attest.

That's nice and all but the big threat to humanity around here was, is and will be the subhuman negro.

You're 8,826 times more likely to be injured by a negro during the commission of a crime against you than a victim of "terrorism."

Negroes killed or wounded 337,000 people last year...and I'm not even counting other negroes since that would indicate that they're humans, which they're not.

Let that sink in. If terrorism had killed or wounded 337,000 people last year we'd be at war.

But no. We continue to let the negro slink about, paying for its food, its health care, its housing, its education. ALL OF WHICH THEY SQUANDER!!!
