There is a very dangerous game being played, especially by the idiots on Fox News. When you are purposely and maliciously try to link every single Muslim to Al Qaeda and ISIS, you put innocent Muslims lives at risk. It is really the equivalent of linking every Christian in America to the KKK, but no one does that.
That risk showed its ugly face last night, when three young Muslims students from the University of North Carolina (UNC) were gunned down by a Christian extremist.
Charged with the shootings is 46 year old Craig Stephen Hicks, who turned himself in to police last night. While police are not saying what caused the shooting, the shooter’s facebook profile was filled with anti-Muslim rants.
The victims all Muslims are: Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23; Yusor Mohammad, 21; and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19.
Barakat was Mohammad’s husband; Abu-Salha was her sister, the school said.
Barakat was a second-year student at the UNC School of Dentistry. He had been married for just over a month to Yusor Mohammad, who was planning to begin her dental studies at UNC in the fall, according to the school. Abu-Salha was a student at North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
All three had been shot in the head.
The hashtag #chapelhillshooting and #MuslimLivesMatter quickly shot to the top of Twitter’s trending topic early Wednesday morning.
There is a saying that it is not so much the one who pulls the trigger, it is more the ones who set it up, riled up the trigger puller or the ones who ordered the hit. So you can bet there will be a lot of celebrating and champagne popping at Fox News this morning. They have always been as dangerous as the Muslim extremists, just sitting on different sides of the fence.
Let’s hope this is not the start of what the idiots at Fox News have always wanted, a religious war in America.
