Garland, Texas Jihadi Attack – Establishment Media Ignore Islamic Motivation

We here at CHQ get it; Garland, Texas Mayor Douglas Athas gets it; Pamela Geller of the American Freedom Defense Initiative gets it and Dutch Member of Parliament Geert Wilders gets it. The establishment media here in America are self-enforcing Islamic Sharia law and under Sharia you cannot criticize or offend Islam, so they will never admit that the terrorist attack in Garland, Texas was a Muslim attack on freedom of speech, assembly and religion -- in short an attack on the liberty under the Constitution that is the very foundation of this country. UPDATE: 2:26 p.m. The second shooter in the Garland, Texas attack has been identified as Nadir Soofi, 34. The first shooter to be indentified was Elton Simpson, 30, who according to the FBI had been investigated for terrorism in the past. Court records from 2011 show Simpson identified as an “American Muslim.” Soofi and Simpson were housemates at an apartment complex in Phoenix, Arizona.
