Texas jihad gunman ID’d, was previously subject of terror investigation

This is apparently “Shariah is Light,” the devout Muslim who tweeted yesterday about seeking “martyrdom” and the Texas attack.

“Texas jihad gunman ID’d, was previously subject of terror investigation,” Jihad Watch, May 4, 2015:

ht_elton_simpson_garland_texas_bug_jc_150504_16x9_992“Simpson was well known to the FBI. Five years ago he was convicted for lying to federal agents about his plans to travel to Africa, but a judge ruled the government did not adequately prove he was going to join a terror group there.” He did it here instead.

And today the mainstream media is rushing to claim that we provoked them, brought it on ourselves, etc. The idea that in the face of violent intimidation we must kowtow and give the thugs what they want seems to be taken for granted as axiomatic by everyone.

“One of Garland, Texas Shooting Suspects ID’d, Official Says,” by Brian Ross, Rhonda Schwartz, and Randy Kreider, ABC News, May 4, 2015:

One of the suspects in the shooting in Garland, Texas, late Sunday has been identified as Elton Simpson, an Arizona man who was previously the subject of a terror investigation, according to a senior FBI official.

Overnight and today FBI agents and a bomb squad were at Simpson’s home in an apartment complex in north Phoenix where a robot is believed to be conducting an initial search of the apartment.

Officials believe Simpson is the person who sent out several Twitter messages prior to the attack on Sunday, in the last one using the hashtag #TexasAttack about half an hour before the shooting.

Local police said two suspects opened fire late Sunday outside a community center in Garland that was hosting an event displaying cartoons of the prophet Muhammad. One unarmed security guard was injured, but other security officers managed to fatally shoot both attackers before anyone else was hurt or killed.

Followers of ISIS had been sending messages about the event in Texas for more than a week, calling for attacks. One referenced January’s Charlie Hebdo massacre in France and said it was time for “brothers” in the United States to do their part.

Simpson was well known to the FBI. Five years ago he was convicted for lying to federal agents about his plans to travel to Africa, but a judge ruled the government did not adequately prove he was going to join a terror group there….

    find this judge who let this guy go 5 years ago…make him pay

  • Fred Smith

    I am glad you are safe Pam. Mr. Wilders too. Finally, the rats are coming into the light where they can be eradicated. The liberal media (MSNBC) won’t mention Simpson by name or the fact he was a Muslim. Keep pressing onward Ms. Geller.

      The major media are now sawing this was Muslim related.

    2 violent terrorists in America have been destroyed thanks to an art exhibit.

    • bobbyhead1

      I’m glad the two Muslims are dead. It could have been many artist dead, even Pamela. Are you saying this event was bait to kill Muslims?

      • Youxia88

        You said it yourself!

      • NoTroll Zone

        The event was an exercise in Freedom of Speech, and the unintended benefit turned out to be 2 dead isslamic terrorists.

        • bobbyhead1

          As I expected; this IN YOU FACE event ended in death. It could have been the artists; easy that died. Don’t praise yourself, instead you should thank God almighty that no one else got killed. If you just praise yourself more could die.

          Too many Muslims here; too bad. Thank the Clintons and Obama, the Muslim.

          • NoTroll Zone

            And if you submit to sharia and convert to islam, as you suggest here, do you think that you’d be safe?

          • BobbyHead

            I suggested no such demonic nonesence. The Quaran and sharia law are from hell. I was referring to the God of the Bible that you should bow down on your knees to and that would be the Lord Jesus Christ the God Almighty who created you.

    I hope AFDI clarifies to the dhimmi MSM that it is not a hate towards isslam or musslims, but a hate towards radical isslam and isslamic terrorism.

    • vlparker

      Radical islam is redundant. It is like saying radical Nazism. There is only one islam and it was on display in Texas last night. This is the islam of Mohammed. This is what he did when he was alive. He murdered hundreds of people. Stop defending evil.

      • Commieobamie

        Yeah, we all get it. But for the libTURD MORONS ya have to dumb it down so they can scratch their heads a little.

      • NoTroll Zone

        You are 100% correct and I totally agree with you.
        Our fellow Americans are not yet ready to accept that truth (musslims wants us all dead or converted) , so I think a little sugar coating is still necessary. Eventually, they will catch on that isslam is not compatible with our western civilization.

    Ironic that Interesting that Pamela Geller, and not radical Islam, is on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website under “Hate and Extremism”.

    • Pray Hard

      Isn’t it though?
      Of course, that probably has nothing to do with the fact that the SPLC is a dhimmi, lib’eloi, clueless organization regarding Islam.

      • The SPLC is a hate group.

      • ☑ ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ A_lawyer_who_knows

        They definitely have their facts wrong on many occasions, astonishingly the federal government has frequently used them as a resource while pursuing terror investigations.

        • Kenneth Dreger

          And now the FEDS have supposedly STOPPED use them as a reference! The SPLC actually called the Border Patrol Aux as a Hate group years ago!

          • ☑ ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ A_lawyer_who_knows

            SPLC is certainly not a neutral information source, but I can tell you with a high degree of certainty that as of last week the feds were still actively using SPLC as a reference.

          • Kenneth Dreger

            If you have any specifics I would really like to see them….we work with agencies to get them to share credible information.

          • ☑ ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ A_lawyer_who_knows

            As of seven days ago the FBI was still using SPLC as a reference while pursuing criminal investigations.I think there might be a credible “Fruit of the poisonous tree” defense based on an investigation that developed from SPLC information.Though not illegally obtained it’s inaccuracy could be akin to exclusion of evidence when police raid the wrong address during a search warrant (a not-infrequent occurrence).

      Its not irony since the SPLC is a leftist tool that pander politics, not fact nor law. They are against freedom, free speech and constitutional rights and equality under the law.
      Here is an example:
      If you spoke out about the death of a Black woman, SPLC would cheer you.
      If you spoke out about the death of a Black woman that later was found out to be Jewish, they would put you on their Hate list.
      They are the demoncrat KKK all over again, different flavor of the week, same harassment and fearsmear

    5. Geert is a blonde-haired Nazi.
    6. Robert is a “Jew”.
    7. It was caused by Islamofauxbia.
    8. Mossad was behind it.

  • bobbyhead1

    The major news networks are now saying this was a Muslim connection. It was two Muslims out to kill the artist at the Pamela Geller event. Those two Muslims could have killed many artist. They were in communication with ISIS. Fortunately they were shot dead first before they could kill, however a security guard was shot. I sent an e-mail to Pamela, months ago, not to do this event. I told her these Muslims could even kill her. No response. This event was too in your face. The way it was all put together was asking for it. They are all fortunate that many artist did not get shot. I said this was a bad idea, because we already have too many Muslims here, thanks to the Clinton and Obama administrations wanting so many Muslim immigrants here. Obama, the Muslim, keeps bringing much more Muslims here and he still has many days to work his dastardly deeds.

    • PatnTrucks

      Honey, I’m one of the artists, I had my ticket, but was too ill to go. I am proud that I can DRAW. I regret I could not have been there in support of all of the other artists and hear Geert Wilders speech. WE KNOW WHAT WE ARE DOING – and we damned well don’t need you to whine ”not to do the event.’ We are adults – most of us are armed and pissed — so don’t you worry your little anonoymous grey little icon head about us. So who the hell are you anyway? Never mind. Not interested.

        PatnTrucks, yes I have gray hair. Hey, if you know what your doing with your gun then that’s up to you. We do have too many Muslims in America, that’s why I knew there would be violence. That’s the only reason I was trying to warn Pamela.

        One woman said something like this one good event happened and two terrorist dead. I don’t really think this event was to bait demonic Muslim terrorist to come so they can get killed.

    • Cate

      No this event wasn’t too in your face. It is EXACTLY what is needed. Shine a serious light on the issue. We need a whole lot more of these events. And you say there are too many Muslims here? So, what are you doing about it? Are you monitoring your local mosques? Are you calling the police when you see behavior amongst those of that persuasion who are acting strangely? I do. I have NO qualms about turning people in. Political correctness be damned. I’m WAY over that bs.

      A few are awake. The rest are still asleep. It will take jihados dragging people out of their houses and slaughtering them in their front yards on live TV to even begin to wake people up. At least half of our nation is steeped in denial and stupidity. And, I will guarantee you that if such is on live TV, the “journalists” will be declaring that it’s not about Islam and that it must be the fault of the people who lived in the houses. And, of course, the police will be investigating diligently for a motive.

    Pamela’s self moral police just deleted my last comment where I told her, months ago, that the way it was billed, is just asking for trouble and the even she could get killed. We have too many Muslims here in America, thanks to the Clinton and Obama administrations. That Muslim in our White House wants more Muslims here.

    • Cate

      No – this is ALL THE MORE reason to stand up and call this sh*t for what it is. Pamela routed out 2 terrorists yesterday – and that’s the truth. And they are dead and gone. Worm food. Doin’ the dirt nap. They never had the chance to kill anyone. If ALL of us had the big brass ones like Pamela does, it would call these savages out, and they could be picked off one by one. Sorta like whack-a-mole. It would work for me! It sends the message loud and clear – you wanna pull that sh*t? You’re going to die.

Outstanding job these men did to recognize the islamic mohammdans intent to stopping FREE SPEECH and FREE EXPRESSION. The news disgusts me – like bow down to mohammadans and ”do as you’re told and we won’t have to kill ‘ya.” SINCE WHEN has our Great Country bowed down to any of these third world or domestic mohammadan clowns and did WHAT THEY TOLD US TO DO? Bah on the news for saying, “You should OBEY islamic terrorists! Then they can go kill other people!” People have died for centuries for our freedom here in the USA. I was wondering if I could have brought my handgun with me to Texas, if they had reprocity with Virginia or not. It’s hard to travel without packing, you know?

    I was there. I noticed that there were no Muslim protesters outside the building like there was during the event last fall when Muslims were promoting Shaira at the same community center. There were about Muslims at that event to protest the people who were protesting. This time there was not a single Muslim to be seen anywhere which means that they all knew what was coming down.

    Finally Ms. Geller you say something smart and very well clarified on TV! Wish you could have really done that earlier instead of saying that all Muslims are savages. Now that you have confirmed that you are concerned for free speech and that you believe that the possibility of good Muslims are out there in our country we can deal with the overlying issue in radical Islam and not the good Muslim people trying hard to escape the violence for a better life. It is good to know you are not Islamophobic, so let’s deal with the underlying issue on how to eradicate the extremist groups.
