You’re not going to hear much about this, even though the attackers killed more cops than they did in the Capitol riot of Jan 6, because:
The attacker was a race supremacist alright — but a black supremacist.
The knife-wielding suspect who mowed down two Capitol police officers, killing one and leaving the other critically injured, before being shot dead has now been identified as a 25-year-old Nation of Islam follower.
Noah Green, 25, who described himself as a ‘Follower of Farrakhan’ and said the federal government was targeting him with mind control on his now-removed Facebook page, was identified by NBC and the New York Post as the perpetrator behind the deadly attack at the US Capitol Friday. …
The motive for Friday’s attack is not yet clear. Posts on Green’s now-removed social media accounts spoke of conspiracies that the FBI and CIA were poisoning him, subjecting him to unauthorized operations and targeting him with ‘mind control’.
In one post – just two hours before the attack – Green called the federal government the ‘#1 enemy of Black people’.
Green also wrote several posts heaping praise on Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan for saving him and describing him as ‘Jesus, the Messiah’ and his ‘spiritual father.’
The tragic incident comes less than three months after the January 6 riot on the US Capitol and one week after wire fencing was removed from the area. …
The [Facebook] page showed he was a fan of the leader of Nation of Islam Louis Farrakhan and contained posts where the user said he was on a ‘spiritual journey’ after having a ‘tough’ past ‘few years’ and recently losing his job. …
The Nation of Islam, founded in Chicago in 1930, teaches that black people are the rulers of earth, who were created first, and who every other race descends from. …
[Farrakhan’s] followers are seen by critics as black supremacists, and the Southern Poverty Law Center categorizes the organization as a hate group.
‘Its theology of innate black superiority over whites and the deeply racist, antisemitic and anti-LGBT rhetoric of its leaders have earned the NOI a prominent position in the ranks of organized hate,’ they say.
Funny how the narrative is nearly always wrong or exaggerated. That’s the difference between fantasy and reality.
Steve Sailer has an interesting dissection of the NYT’s write-up of the incident, showing how it would reaffirm the worldview of a NYT reader despite that worldview being contradicted by the facts in the article. Propaganda at its finest.
UPDATE: Joe Biden Fails to Condemn Farrakhan Follower Capitol Hill Attack in Statement. I’m wearing my shocked face.
