ABC News Misses Interesting Fact

This story is horrible.

The man who was arrested on a filthy New Mexico compound with 11 abused children was training the children to commit school shootings, according to court documents obtained by ABC News.

The documents allege that 39-year-old Siraj Wahhaj was conducting weapons training at the property in Amalia, near the Colorado border. A foster parent of one of the 11 children allegedly stated to law enforcement that Wahhaj had “trained the child in the use of an assault rifle in preparation for future school shootings,” according to a criminal complaint.

Law enforcement was aware of a short-distance shooting range that had been installed at the compound, Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said in a press conference Tuesday afternoon.

A defense attorney for Wahhaj is disputing the claims made by prosecutors in court documents that the children were being trained to commit school shootings, the Associated Press reported.

Here’s how the same story starts over on the Daily Mail. Notice the difference?

The Muslim extremist father arrested at a New Mexico compound with 11 starving children had been training them to carry out school shootings, new legal documents claim.

ABC News never mentions that the man was a Muslim extremist and he was running a killer training compound on American soil.

    If a Christian talks about marriage undr God’s design under Matthew 19….ABC will paste “Christian”’in a negative connotation all over the place.

    And that is when cause is good.

    Here we talk actual evil and ABC fails to properly label it.

    The Muslims are the single most significant threat to the USA.  Unlike the ChiComs, the Muslims move here and in their enclaves utilize Sharia law which is absolutely incompatible with Constitutional government.  Also unlike the ChiComs, the Muslims have no problem with murderous violence on our soil.

    Are you as concerned about Kiryas Joel, Dad29?

    Can you show me a similar Muslim enclave?

    Jiffy sniffs: Are you as concerned about Kiryas Joel, Dad29?

    Why would he be?….

    A 2011 New York Times report noted that, despite the town’s very high statistical poverty rates, “It has no slums or homeless people. No one who lives there is shabbily dressed or has to go hungry. Crime is virtually nonexistent.

    Jiffy wonders: Can you show me a similar Muslim enclave?

    No, because muslim enclaves tend to be dens of scum and stink.

    But if it’s muslim enclaves you are looking for….

    Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Rochester MN.  A.K.A.  Somalia North.  Home of ISIS wannabes, fast-tracked innocent-people-shooting muslim police officers, Shariah police patrols, and muslim state lawmakers who marry their brothers to scam immigration laws.   And Keith Ellison.  Again.

    Then there’s Dearborn and Hamtramck MI…..

    You think Hasidic religious law is compatible with Constitutional government?  You think cities and villages should be able to adopt and enforce systems of law and government based on religion? You think “crime is virtually non-existent” means that crimes were detected and prosecuted in the same way as other non-Hasidic communities, so you’re not comparing apples and oranges? How do you explain the “very high” poverty rates and reliance on government programs?

    Dearborn? When I was there, I only saw great places to eat.

    Why didn’t you stay, John?  Why?  Could you go back??

    It would appear that Wahhaj’s penchant for jihad is genetic. There’s a much bigger story here than has been told so far and it’s just going to get uglier. Lots of finger pointing among those federal cracker jacks at the FBI, Homeland, and the “intelligence community” charged with domestic security over who didn’t know what and when they didn’t know it.

    Only answering the easy questions, Dad29?  I was visiting friends in the area; I didn’t live there.  Do you think you’d enjoy all your freedoms in Kiryas Joel?

    Tell me where you think there are enclaves of Sharia law, and how that differs from your religion influencing outcome in the courtrooms.
