So this drunk ex army veteran drives to Detroit's largest mosque with a trunk full of explosives with FIVE HUNDRED Muslims...

Wait now, let's switch the situation - What if he was Muslim, but driving into a church?

Man O man.

Sensationalism aside - he had a truck full of M-80's...that's it.





He would have been more of a threat to the mosque if he had a truck full of pornography...

I think I just broke a rib laughing.
Yeah, there's bias there.
First off, Americans love fireworks.
Secondly, we're not afraid of drunks with M-80s in general. Just annoyed with them.
Third, well, the media will do it their own damn way won't they.
They haven't reported real news since Cronkite signed off the air.

So the media didn't exploit it to the satisfaction of you? They don't report alot of things that should be such as the number of crimes commited by illegals, the media bias towards most things conservative, the black racism in this country, the islamic terror camps in this country.....things that really matter, but this upsets you? I guess that one guy with fire crackers should be martyred to make up for the muslims getting special treatment in this country as it is.

Sounds like the guy was ready to party!! All drunk with a trunk full of fire works?

Where I come from, you'd make friends instantly showing up like that!!


He was just trying to befriend the Muslims, and well....he was a little sloppy behind the wheel, being drunk and all and OOps! he drove into the mosque!

Have any of you actually lit an m80? Just one could literally blow your hand off. Not to be confused with the smaller m60s that ate sold around new years. Far from a firecracker

The MSM didn't exploit it period. This upsets me because if he was Muslim it would be all over. But he's not, therefore, it is left alone.

What special treatment are you talking about? The constant harrasement Muslims face because they're Muslim?

I am not surprised, I did check out the other video in the description. Excellent stuff, check it out!

C´mon! Is it posible that you US people don´t see it? The very same answers to this topic give confirmation to the point of the OP.
If it would have been a muslim guy running into ANYWHERE, even if he just had a gun, or a firework, it would be now in the news as an terrorist attempt.
Why don´t you see it?

You're dead right.

Perhaps when 1,000,000 cases of single drunk guys with truck loads of fire crackers rock up to mosques, and perhaps when the sentiment of single white drunks is to seek death to all muslims, the media will start to treat single white drunks the same as they treat fanatical islam.

1 case of a single event isn't *that* news worthy, but the same repeated attitude and behaviour from the same group of people united under the one cause, IS..

Sorry to burst your bubble...

Nah,
You can't get real m80's any more. Used to be 1/6 th the power of a stick of dynamite.They were the bread and butter for 10 year old boys in the 70's but somewhere along the way they were outlawed and not produced any more.

The m80's today are a joke.

I wonder if he knocked off a fireworks stand or what?

It was funny how they inferred that he had some kind of a car bomb.
If he'd gotten started he'd probably blown off a few fingers and then had his butt beat for disturbing prayers.

Idiot

It´s also funny how any muslim-looking could be arrested or taken as a potential terrorist because of a backpack if looks a little big...
the very same car would have been considered a car bomb if he were muslim.

First of all, they were fireworks....


Secondly, why are you saying it wasn't "broadcast"? I heard this story all over TV, radio, etc so I don't know where you're getting your news info from other than YouTube...

With all due respect...HORSE PUCKEY!!!! I first heard about this on CNN, then I followed up on FoxNews, and it even made it the London Sunday Times and UK Guardian not to mention New York Times, Chicago Sun Tribune AND last but not least the Detroit Free Press. Didn't make it to mainstream el oh el. This was even widely discussed on most of the mainstream "alternative" news sites ad nauseum as well. There were even contradictory reports that the guy had converted to Islam as well (thanks World Net Daily...again...el oh el)

And the question remains.

What if he had been a Muslim, driving to a church? I personally dislike conjecture-based arguments, but it IS an interesting thought experiment.

Mohamed al-Sadat, an Egyptian immigrant, a resident of California, is found by police near the First Church of the Nativity in Detroit, with several pounds of low-grade explosives in his truck while the church is in service, after he was heard in a local grocery store threatening to cause harm to the church.

What would the headlines and the evening news tell us about this event?
