‘Muslim Extremist’ Training School Shooters: Here’s Why The Media Is Not Outraged
Published : August 13, 2018
Every week, every day really, has caused attention-seeking and uproar for the latest rage. Whether Americans are directed to react to President Trump tweeting up a storm or demanded to pick a side when conservative and contrarian voices are being banned from social media platforms, Americans are distracted.
In all that noise that was just last week, a very dangerous situation was exposed and relatively glossed over in the media. While all that nonsense was happening, it was discovered on Friday, Aug. 3 that a compound in Amalia, New Mexico housed 11 children, ages 1 to 15, who were being abused and trained to commit school shootings.
According to court documents released last Wednesday, a man led a group of four other adults, in training children with assault rifles for the intent of shooting up schools. The children and adults were living in complete filth, within a travel trailer buried in the ground, covered in plastic, with no water, no plumbing, and no electricity. The compound also contained a shooting range and a 150-foot escape tunnel.
During the raid of the compound there was a search for the man’s three-year-old son, who has been missing since December from Jonesboro, Georgia. It was reported that the boy suffered from seizures and was unable to walk. During the raid is when authorities found the man, the four additional adults, and 11 children, but no son. And then last Monday, it is believed, though not yet confirmed, that the remains of that three-year-old boy were found. It was also what would have been his fourth birthday.
The primary suspect in this case is Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, an Islamic man with familial ties to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Wahhaj’s father, the elder Siraj Wahhaj is an infamous Imam for Muslim Alliance in North America, located in New York. While not charged with any crime, the elder Wahhaj came to the defense of Omar Abdel-Rahman, who was the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center attack.
In this case, Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said the five adults at the compound were “most likely heavily armed and considered extremist of Muslim belief.”
This story involves children, abuse, and the potential for school shootings, and while society should be outraged, it is relatively silent on the issue. When other isolated instances of child abuse are learned, the media orchestrates the claim that clearly all families who homeschool their children are abusers. Think of the Turpin case from earlier this year. And if a lone gunman goes into a school, the media immediately blames the NRA and all gun owners.
Society is in an age of identity politics and judging people based on what boxes they fit. If the “proper” boxes are checked, and they fit the leftist narrative, those people can do no wrong. Being Muslim checks one of those boxes, and this story demonstrates the broader implications and devastation that can happen when truth is ignored in the name of being politically correct. Because of the demographics of Wahhaj and the four other suspects, this story is not being given the news reel that any other story would receive if the identity politics were different. And so instead, Americans are distracted by tweets and stories that are not a matter of life and death.
