When I first heard about ISIS targeting Texans, I thought to myself; “Are y’all really that stupid?” After the incident in Garland, Texas on Sunday May 3rd at the Culwell Event Center, it appears that maybe they are.
If you haven’t heard about the shooting in Texas, I’ll give you a brief synopsis:
Two gunmen armed with AKMs (possibly illegal unregistered select-fire variety) and wearing body armor, attempted to terrorize people at the “Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest” by opening fire, shooting a security guard in the ankle. Lone off-duty police officer “puts them both to death” with his handgun. End of story.
Although the “Texas hero’s” name has not been officially released (I’m sure to protect him and his family from possible terrorist retribution), I would only imagine he would say something like; “I was only doing my job” or “Shoot, them boys shouldn’t be messin’ with Texans.”
The spokesman for the Garland Police Department had this to say;
“He did what he was trained to do, and under the fire that he was put under, he did a very good job. And probably saved lives,” Harn said of the unidentified officer. “We think their strategy was to get into the event center, and they were not able to get past our perimeter that we had set up.”
Now it hasn’t been confirmed as to what exactly they were carrying or wearing, and it is possible that these two obtained real select-fire AKMs from their Mexican drug cartel allies or maybe they were just your average run-of-the-mill variety semi-autos, and the “body armor” they supposedly were wearing has not been confirmed either, which means it may have been simple load-bearing equipment or LBEs. Of course none of this truly matters (they were armed and willing to harm others), yet in the case of traditional MSM reporting where ALL semi-automatic weapons become “assault rifles” we have to start telling the truth and not use “fear-mongering” tactics to make money.
It does seem as though some are making comparisons to the incident in an unarmed country, where armed (these guys don’t follow the laws) terrorists raided the Charlie Hebdo headquarters over Muhammad cartoons on January 7th where unarmed police officers along with civilians were forced to flee for their lives. I guess the only comparison I can see here is; We don’t play that… down here in Texas. If terrorist organizations such as ISIS want to claim responsibility for this incident, as many agencies are also reporting, they have been warned: Texans are armed (civilian and LEOs alike) and we accept your challenge.
As we all can plainly see, the picture has already been painted for future terrorist threats; When sending men to attack innocent, unarmed texas citizens like you did in Garland on May 3rd, you better make sure the Prophet Muhammad has responded to your prayers — because we’re “gonna cut you down in the streets and send you to meet your virgins.”
We can also see what traditional mainstream media can do with these types of stories; as they insert keywords such as “assault rifles, high-capacity magazines, scary black gun, or the even more asinine words such as; ghost gun, unlimited clips, armor-piercing, banana clips (hair accessories?). Or, they manage to over-report and propagate things such as; Garland SWAT ends incident, which is absolutely NOT what happened as we now know, they never fired a shot.

Honest reporting from reputable sources must be found, followed and used or We the People are just as much to blame for propagating their lies.
