FBI urged to investigate call for violence against Muslims in NC

Posted February 18

WRAL News

The nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization urged law enforcement Saturday to probe a potential call to violence in North Carolina.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations said the incident happened at a Thursday breakfast meeting in Kernersville during a presentation in the Islamization of America.

Local media reported that a participant interrupted the presenter to say he was ready to “start killing people and taking them out.”

CAIR’s national director called on the FBI as well as local and state authorities to launch a criminal investigation.

    What terrorist acts have been committed by or in the name of Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhist, Amish, or Mormon faiths? Muslims, however, have bombed the WTC, killed dozens in Orlando and San Bernardino, beheaded or burned alive various innocent people.

    Well, Lamario, I detest the "spin room" as you so aptly put it, and instead I like to educate myself on the issues of the day. Back when I was growing up, the US was forced to intervene in other countries in order to stop the spread of communism. During the Nixon years, that also became an effort to procure secure supplies of oil, and that has continued. Much of our interference in the Middle East, and now the Russia business, is all because of oil. There is no getting around our dependence on it, no matter how much we'd like to. The sad fact is that we cannot just hold up our hands and say we're just going to stay home and deal with domestic issues. The world doesn't work that way.

    Unfortunately John it is a mute point because most of the people up here are not informed...let me rephrase that most people here just read Facebook, or some other type of news outlet without doing research or the other...they just choose to ignore the facts...and to Michael it has nothing to do with "Liberal" response or if I were a conservative, it wouldn't be a "conservative" response. It's a American response to hatred that you have for whatever reason. We have no business in these other countries being the US bully. I refuse to get into an educated debate with you because you sir continue to stay in the "spin room"...if you don't know what that means, google it. We need to focus on the US and the terrorist acts we do to our own country instead of going to these countries fighting and using every excuse as to why...well I'll tell you the real reason, NATURAL RESOURCES; i.e. Gold, oil, silver, etc

    That "education" secretary was not threatened, she was just blocked from entering. And she is completely unqualified for the post she holds, so protesting her is valid. Why should people NOT speak up when something is wrong? Are we all robots? Should we never hold our leaders accountable for their words and actions?

    If this were the case, then I assume you would also be calling for the same treatment for various Christian groups, since they are committing more terrorist acts in this country than Muslims are?

    Classic liberal response. Never in my lifetime have I ever seen an Education Secretary require US Marshall protection because liberals forcefully block her from entering a public school. Liberals hating someone before the person is on the job for a week. Hate that requires US Marshall protection. Liberal HATE on display.

    CAIR is a terrorist organization and their leaders should be arrested and sent to Gitmo. Muslims should be implanted with a chip so their movements and conversations can be monitored

    It always funny to see people's go too..."Liberal agenda this and that"..."Liberal blah blah blah"...stop blaming everyone for this...who you should blame is your misinformation or your bias towards another group...instead of blaming one political group, focus on coming together...you are what is currently wrong with America...HATE!
