Yes, once again, It's time to present this week's statuette of shame, The Golden Weasel!!
Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week's nominees were particularly slimy and despicable, but the votes are in and we have our winner...the envelope please...
Faisel Mohammed, Jihadi Murderer
Joshuapundit: Last Friday, the Muslim Holy Day 18-year-old Faisel Mohammed decided to kill as many infidels as he could among his fellow students on the campus of University of California at Merced. He stabbed four people before being shot by police.
The Merced Sun Star reported that Mohammed “smiled as he slashed at people during a stabbing spree.” He was also shouting Allahu Akbar.Needless to say, UC Merced is a gun-free zone.
The response of the media and local law enforcement was absolutely astounding.
Mohammed had numerous jihadi websites on his computer, and a detailed manifesto on his person describing exactly how he was going to tie his victims down and lure police into the room before stealing one of their guns so he could expand the carnage. 'Praise Allah' was written several times on each page.
He also had a backpack containing hand-cuffs, a night vision scope, duct tape and a home made explosive using petroleum jelly, which Merced Country Sheriff Verne Warnke described as s a "poor man's C-4," a military-grade explosive.
It spite of all this, the media and Sheriff Warneke raced to say that this was not terrorism related, just a 'kid with a grudge.' ABC News reported:
UC Merced Chancellor Dorothy Leland says personal animosities, not a political agenda, motivated 18-year-old Faisal Mohammad from Santa Clara in Wednesday's multiple stabbings on the school's campus. Authorities say the stabbing of four people at UC Merced was not related to terrorism.
That story changed, sort of, when Merced County news reporter Matthew Gonzales revealed that anonymous law enforcement sources informed him that Mohammad was on the FBI's terror watch list and that the school was aware of it.
Not only that, but Mohammed had actually been one of the topics of discussion about 6 months ago when the FBI held a terrorist/extremist briefing with Merced County law enforcement leaders.
Ah well, jobs and pensions have to be protected. No wonder they're sticking to their story so far.
In the name of political correctness, we have normalized Islamist terrorism. Just one of those things that happens some times, like a car accident or a power outage...
Yes,Islamist terrorism as just part of the daily routine. It barely rates headlines these days most of the time. Actually young Faisel Mohammed isn't really the proper recipient of this weeks' Weasel. He's just a mad dog.
Who really deserves it are the FBI officials whom had him on a terrorism watch and refused to do anything about it and the college officials and local law enforcement like Sheriff Verne Warnke who hid what they were told about Faisel from the public and later tried to cover it up. Of course, you and I as well for allowing our elites to do this to us without screaming bloody murder.
But since that many weasels would strain the budget, we'll just award it to Faisel Mohammed. I will send a short note, but not the statuette of shame to his family...who have had the decency to express a great deal of shame and remorse over what their son did. You do your best, but you never can tell how your kids will turn out, and no parent should have to live to bury their child.
Well, there it is.
Check back next Tuesday to see who next week's nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
