‘Shed some blood’: Extremists talk violence against Muslims; FBI investigates

Posted by | February 21, 2017 09:13 | Filed under: News Behaving Badly Politics

They call themselves “Tea Partiers.” the term potential terrorists seems more appropriate:

A consortium of tea partiers, patriot groups and other conservative activists gathered in a private dining room at a seafood restaurant in Kernersville on Thursday evening for a presentation on a supposed Muslim plot to conquer the United States.

The 20 or so people who attended the meeting at Captain Tom’s Seafood needed little convincing from presenter Tom Jones, who soldiered through frequent interruptions about supposed Muslim treachery paired with testimonials about preparedness for violent confrontation and even expressions of readiness to kill Muslims.

“Do you have any recommendations as to how we could stop this?” asked Frank del Valle, a Winston-Salem resident whose Facebook page identifies him as a retired federal employee and native of Cuba, near the end of the hourlong presentation. “Because my only recommendation is to start killing the hell out them.

Del Valle’s outburst spurred a variety of responses from the group.

Robert Goodwill, who identified himself as a member of the national security advocacy group Act for America, took an optimistic tack with the recent election of Donald Trump, adding, “We’re on our way.

Another man, who did not identify himself, said, “I want to start doing something instead of talking about it all the time.” He added, “I’m in a group. I’m not going to tell you what group I’m in.”

“Political correctness is being thrown away,” [Goodwill] said. “A lot of people are meeting like this. We’re making progress in the positive direction.” He argued for supporting reformers in the Muslim faith, adding, “We need to talk about how we can get things done peacefully. Be ready for the worst.”

“I am beyond that point,” del Valle replied. “I’m ready to start taking people out.

“I can understand that,” Goodwill said. “But we’re not there yet.”

Earlier in the presentation, del Valle quipped, “Shed some blood, too,” in response to Jones’ call to “shed some light” on the Muslim Brotherhood.

Del Valle declined a request for an interview to clarify his comments late Friday.

The full article – including an audio recording of the entire presentation by Jones – also sheds some light on paranoia over the Muslim Brotherhood:

Reading from notes on a yellow legal pad in the dining hall at Captain Tom’s, Tom Jones outlined a set of charges that wove mundane day-to-day happenstance with unsubstantiated claims about Muslim subversion of the American court system.

“The Muslim Brotherhood is behind all that terrorism and violent acts, but they’re also here operating in America in a very stealthy mode,” he said. “They’ve infiltrated the judiciary. They have judges that are elected to the bench. These judges are expected to make rulings from the bench here in America according to sharia law even though it’s not a sharia court. If you’ve got a Muslim judge he’s required to try you under sharia law. These people are in high positions of influence often behind the scenes in government, academia, medicine, the media. How many of you have been to a hospital and seen the doctors that are running around in the hospital?”

“Yeah,” one of the guests at Captain Tom’s Seafood replied. “They’re not American.”

The FBI has taken notice of the meeting and is

looking into reports of death threats made against Muslims during a meeting of conservative activists in North Carolina.
Local news outlets report Monday the Council on American-Islamic Relations asked federal authorities to look into a meeting last week in Kernersville where a group listened to a guest speaker talk about the Muslim Brotherhood.
In audio posted on alternative newspaper Triad City Beat’s website, someone says, “Any recommendations on how we can stop this? Because my only recommendation is to start killing the hell out of them.”
The comment follows a conversation about Muslims who the speaker suggests are trying to take over the United States.

    This is how it works.

    An extremist movement eggs-on a crazy small few. When the crazies start killing, the movement denies any culpability.

    these cretins are out of their fkn minds and noone will do anything until someone dies. Where does this paranoid psychosis come from? Nuts, just plain nuts.

      raised by a heritage of ignorance. who, have continued the cycle of breeding ignorance for the purpose of hate. and quite frankly they should be reported to CPS and their children removed.

    This is not an isolated phenomena. It is all over the place. My wife has Facebook friends who routinely post lurid crazy stuff about sharia Law taking over. We had longtime friends over for Christmas and that was all they wanted to talk bout, they thought we were fools not to be as paranoid as they were. They believed, as the article mentions, that there are all these ‘secret Muslims’ infiltrating government at all levels. Of course, Obama was one of them and opened the door. WTF can we do about this?It is poisonous. I respect the First Amendment but groups promoting this need to be cracked down on.

      Have them read Richard Hofstadter’s classic essay “The Paranoid Style” for starters.

        Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll read it on the way home.

    Hate is universal,
    But American hate usually comes with a gun

    More propaganda material for ISIS recruitment. Thanks, a$$holes!

    The vast majority of right-wing fanatics aren’t going to do anything but talk because they’re not willing to give up their comfortable lives.

      But there are more Dylann Roof’s and more Wade Michael Page’s and more Anders Brevik’s out there.

    The really scary thing is that these folks and Trump visit the same media almost exclusively: talk radio and Fox.
