The controlled media’s sympathetic and excuse-finding coverage of Somali “refugee” Ohio State University attacker Abdul Razak Ali Artan’s “motives” is in stark contrast to the way any white who commits a racially-motivated crime is instantly labelled a “hater.”
When nonwhites are involved, the media also always tries to blame “white racism”—as has already happened with the Ohio attack.
CNN, for example, has chosen to headline Artan’s vicious attack with a story about how he was “scared to pray in public” because he was a Muslim.
The implication of this “news angle” is obvious: namely that “white racism” drove the Somali to the point of murder.
The Daily Beast also expounded this theme, reporting that the “Ohio State attacker described himself as a ‘scared’ Muslim.”
Other controlled media outlets sympathetically pondered Artan’s “motives,” with, for example, the Vancouver Sun saying that “Terrorism [was] suspected” and the U.S. News and World Report saying that “Terrorism [was being] eyed as police seek more info.”
The BBC in Britain announced that a “possible terror link was being investigated,” and the Washington Post said that the “Ohio State attacker complained bitterly in Facebook post of treatment of Muslims ‘everywhere.’”
In reality, Artan’s motives are obvious: he was a radicalized Muslim who carried out his attack in revenge against American foreign policy, which attacks and bombs Muslim countries on behalf of the Jewish Lobby and Israel.
Artan in fact specifically blamed American policy in a Facebook post he made which appeared just three minutes before he started his rampage:
“I can’t take it anymore. America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that.” (“Ummah” is an Arabic word which means all Muslims worldwide).
The post—since removed as evidence—also invoked the name Anwar Al-Awlaki, an American-born al-Qaeda cleric, describing him as a “hero.”
“If you want us Muslims to stop carrying lone wolf attacks, then make peace,” the post reads. “We will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims.”
Three months ago, Artan had been interviewed in the Ohio State University’s college newspaper, the Lantern, saying that he “wanted to pray in the open, but I was kind of scared with everything going on in the media. I’m a Muslim, it’s not what the media portrays me to be.
“If people look at me, a Muslim praying, I don’t know what they’re going to think, what’s going to happen. But I don’t blame them. It’s the media that put that picture in their heads, so they’re just going to have it, and it—it’s going to make them feel uncomfortable.”
In a further indication of the insanity of the “refugee” policy currently begin pursued by the U.S. Government, Artan supposedly “fled” Somalia in 2007, but went to Pakistan, where he lived for seven years.
Then, in 2014, he applied to come to America as a “refugee” when it became apparent that the Obama regime was importing hundreds of thousands of Somalis under the bogus asylum swindle.
Even though Artan was not fleeing a “war zone” and had lived peacefully in Pakistan for seven years, he was, of course, immediately granted “asylum” in America.
He then joined a long list of Somali “refugees” who have come to America and who have then aligned themselves to Islamist terrorist groups and criminal activities. Dozens of Somalis in America have left to join the Shabab Islamist group in Somalia, and several dozen others have tried or succeeded in leaving to join ISIS in Syria.
