WAR came to Texas in a big way the other day. Garland, Texas, specifically the Curtis Culwell Center (a school district-owned building), was the scene of an unprovoked attack when two armed jihadists stormed the building and shot an unarmed school guard at a free speech event. The two armed jihadists were “taken out” by a couple of Texas police who were armed with handguns (seriously, against bigger weapons). While the facility was under lock down, Tea Party leader and former congressional candidate Katrina Pierson led the attendees who in lockdown in the singing of the God Bless America followed by prayers. The only person injured was the one guard.
A little background is in order perhaps at this point, going back only to January of this year:
• January 7, 2015. The headquarters of Charlie Hebdo, a secular, atheistic, far-left, anti-racist political cartoon magazine located in Paris was attacked by two jihadists shouting Allahu akhbar. Charlie Hebdo is an equal opportunity offender (i.e. it insults everyone). The result of this attack was twelve killed and eleven wounded. Of course only the jihadists were armed.
• Two days later in Paris, a Hyper Cacher (Super Kosher) store was attacked by other Islamic jihadist who killing four people. Again only the jihadists were armed.
• January 17, 2015 A conference “Stand with the Prophet in Honor and Respect” was held at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland. The keynote speaker at the event, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bomb, Imam Siraj Wahhaj was the keynote speaker. The American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), lead by Pamela Geller the founder, organized a protest of this event, drawng at least 1,000 picketers. No one was shot at, but then again the protestors were on the right.
