Texas gun nuts who terrorized mosque publish names and addresses of Muslim families

Published

on

The Bureau of American-Islamic Relations (BAIR) — an anti-Muslim group that used assault rifles and other weapons to intimidate and threaten members of an Irving, Texas mosque on Sunday — has stepped up its campaign of harassment by publishing the names and contact information of the city’s Muslim families and their so-called “sympathizers.”

The Dallas Morning News reported that David Wright III — the man who organized Sunday’s armed demonstration at the Irving Islamic Center — published the names and addresses in a Facebook post.

“THE NAME AND ADDRESS OF EVERY MUSLIM AND MUSLIM SYMPATHIZER THAT STOOD UP FOR SHARIA SHARIA TRIBUNALS IN IRVING TX. LISTED BELOW,” wrote Wright on BAIR’s Facebook page.

Wright then published the names of every Irving resident and speaker who spoke out against a state law aimed at limiting the influence of Muslims on local law and customs. The law was sparked by a false rumor that Irving’s Islamic residents were convening a Sharia Law court inside the Islamic Center.

Wright has said that he and the members of his group have only armed themselves out of self-defense. Muslims intend to kill Irving’s mayor, Wright says, which the Morning News said the newspaper “has seen no evidence of.”

The BAIR founder and director believes that a Paris-style attack in the U.S. is imminent and that local Muslims pose a direct threat to the peace and stability of his community.

“We should stop being afraid to be who we are! We like to have guns designed to kill people that pose a threat in a very efficient manner,” he wrote on his personal page.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) on Wednesday broke ranks with President Donald Trump and said he should stop promoting baseless conspiracy theories about MSNBC's Joe Scarborough murdering a staffer 20 years ago.

As reported by Politico's Jake Sherman, Cheney brought up the president's murder conspiracy theories unprompted during an interview with reporters who had originally asked her about wearing face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I do think the president should stop tweeting about Joe Scarborough," she said. "We’re in the middle of a pandemic. He’s the commander in chief of this nation. And it’s causing great pain to the family of the young woman who died."

BUSTED: Trump flack Kayleigh McEnany has voted by mail 11 times in the last 10 years

Published

on

Trump White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany this week echoed President Donald Trump's statements that allowing everyone to vote by mail would result in an unprecedented surge in "voter fraud."

However, a review conducted by the Tampa Bay Times has found that McEnany herself has voted by mail a total of 11 times in the past decade alone.

"In fact, the Tampa native has voted by mail in every Florida election she has participated in since 2010," the Tampa Bay Times has found. "Most recently, she voted by mail in the state’s March 2020 presidential primary, just as Trump did after he made Florida his new permanent home."
