“Black Jesus” Kills 3 White Men; Already Wanted For Previous Murder
The FBI might be investigating the possible hate crime or terrorism link of an apparent Muslim man who opened fire on random white men in downtown Fresno, CA, killing at least three Tuesday. The black man, identified as Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, yelled “Allahu Akbar!” (“God is Great!” in Arabic) just prior to being tackled to the ground and taken into custody by police, according to foxnews.com. Muhammad was already being sought for the murder of an unarmed security guard, 25-year-old Carl Williams, also white, in the parking lot of the Fresno Motel 6 on April 13th.
The assailant is a convicted felon with an extensive criminal history consisting of weapons, drugs, false imprisonment, and terroristic threats arrests. Court records also indicate that he is afflicted with mental illnesses, including a substantial degree of paranoia. In addition, he is known to be associated with gangs, although it has not been substantiated that he is a member of any one in particular.
Is A Lone Wolf Still A Terrorist?
There appears to be some question as to how law enforcement is initially proceeding with the investigation of the shooting as, while abc7.com is reporting that the FBI is looking into “any potential ties to terrorism,” Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer stated, “What we know is that this was a random act of violence. There is every reason to believe he acted alone.” And yet, the telltale cry of all radical jihadist Islamic terrorists, “Allahu Akbar,” would lead one to believe that the attack was, at the very least, a lone wolf act of radical Islam inspired terrorism.
But, then we can also factor in the complicating impact of the black/white historical conflict which may have also significantly motivated Muhammad in his committing this heinous attack and also in the type of targets whom he chose – i.e., white men. According to Chief Dyer, upon arrest Muhammad told police that he “hates white people.” In addition, he has “a troubled social media history,” Dyer continued, “We looked at his Facebook. We know that he has some posts that say that he does not like white people and also on that post he has expressed some anti-government sentiments.” Also emphasized on his Facebook page, was an affinity toward militant black nationalism.

‘Based Solely On Race’
The Chief stated that he believed Muhammad’s shooting spree was “based solely on race,” adding “We don’t believe it’s a terrorist act. We believe it was a hate crime. It was definitely a hate crime.” With regard to the attacker’s shouting of “Allahu Akbar,” Dyer said that the shootings had “nothing to do with terrorism in spite of the statement he made.” From the shooter’s comments after being taken into custody, police now believe that he knew he was being searched for with regard to the Motel 6 murder, caught on videotape by security cameras, and “decided he was going to kill more people.” By all accounts, he actually wanted to kill as many white people as possible. During the attack, he appears to have shot at all white people in close proximity, while sparing the Latino driver of a utility truck in which he shot and killed the white passenger. He also did not fire upon a car which he could see held two Latina women and a child.
While the entire actual attack, with Muhammad firing off 16 rounds from four different positions while moving through a small area of downtown Fresno, only lasted a total of less than one minute, it could have very easily been much, much worse, save for the presence of special safety technology. Fortunately, the downtown Fresno area is equipped with a sophisticated system of sound monitors called the “Shotspotter” which alerts police immediately to any gunshot sounds. This allowed for the extremely rapid police response and may have saved countless lives.
‘Kill As Many White People As Possible’
“These were unprovoked attacks by an individual that was intent on carrying out homicides today. He did that,” Dyer stated. Muhammad will be facing four counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder or, at a minimum, two additional charges of assault with a deadly weapon. But these charges could be compounded and escalated immensely if elevated to hate crime or terrorism levels.
Additional information released about Muhammad’s Facebook page reports an acceleration of activity in the 24 hours leading up to the shootings. According to foxnews.com, he posted “#LetBlackPeopleGo” over and over, while encouraging “black warriors” to “mount up.” He wrote about “white devils” and posted that his “kill rate increases tremendously on the other side,” including updates peppered with the phrase “Allahu Akbar.” Is it any wonder that most reasonable people may question whether his depraved acts of unrepentant violence may be at least partially motivated by racial enmity, radicalized Islamic terrorism, or some contemptible combination of both?
Misguided Mainstream Media
And yet, the Associated Press (AP), in typical leftist liberal media political correctness form, attempted to cover for the Islamic terrorist by removing the standard refrain of all Islamic terrorists upon attacking their innocent, unsuspecting victims: “Allahu Akbar.” This overtly biased act was met with immediate and swift retribution from normal, red-blooded Americans across the country, who responded emphatically and multitudinously to the misguided tweet. And so, did the AP learn anything from being reviled by patriots throughout the heartland? Not at all.
They followed that euphemistically reckless use of blatant political correctness with another strategic lie of omission with regard to the attack. The AP proceeded to remove the word “white” from the following tweet below. Remember, according to Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer, Muhammad “wanted to kill as many white people as possible.” Unfortunately, we may as well consider these abrogations of all objectivity par for the course when dealing with any outlet of the liberal mass media establishment.
BREAKING: Fresno police chief: Shooting not connected to terrorism; suspect wanted to kill as many people as possible.

And, even as news of Tuesday’s shooting spree attack recedes from the front pages, the debate over the dispute of whether or not it represents a hate crime or terrorism has accelerated, verily exploding throughout the national consciousness. Is it really even possible that it could NOT actually be considered an act of terrorism, as all those on the left, the local police chief, and even the venerable FBI are currently proclaiming the possibility of?
Is It Really Even Possible?
Perhaps the most sensible answers to these queries and analysis of these events at this point comes from Jim Hanson, Executive VP of the Center for Security Policy. Appearing on The O’Reilly Factor the night of the attack, Hanson responded to the question of whether and when it could possibly be labeled as “terrorism” by law enforcement:
“It’s up to their agencies when they decide to call it terrorism, but of course it’s terrorism! The only question is which particular strain and, in this case, it seems like there are two. We have radical Islamic terrorism with his “Allahu Akbar,” and we also have black nationalism…and this is a situation where those two things combined are even more deadly.
This guy was looking to create a black state. He was looking to kill white people. And he was doing so in the name of Allah. So, you combine those things together, I don’t care what particular terms you use, it is most certainly a form of terrorism. And it’s something the police and all the rest of our national security agencies, hopefully, under President Trump, can now take their handcuffs and blindfolds off and take a good look at and try to keep us safe from.”
Having masterfully answered her first questions, Dana Perino, filling in for the vacationing Bill O’Reilly, proceeded to ask Hanson the much more difficult question of what sort of actions can local law enforcement take to help them deal with, and possibly preemptively take action to protect people from, these types of attacks? To which Hanson answered with simple brilliance:
“I think we need to go ahead and allow our law enforcement agencies to look where they know the bad guys are. Andrew McCarthy coined and used a great phrase called “willfull blindness,” where we avoid actually looking at what we know the problem is. It is Islamic terror. It is black nationalism.
In this case, this guy was obsessed with Black Lives Matter and the other grievance-mongering groups that have pushed this narrative that the police are slaughtering black men in massive numbers. The facts don’t bear it out.
So we need to look where people are telling those stories and radicalizing people. We need to look at which mosques are preaching hate. And we need to allow our national security agencies to do their jobs, as opposed to pretending this isn’t the actual problem.”
Makes sense to me. What do you think?
