Referring to the Oklahoma beheading suspect as a “gentleman,” MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry and panel over the weekend tried to downplay the potential terrorism aspect of the gruesome crime, calling it “workplace violence.” Harris-Perry — generally known as an apologist for the Left and a staunch defender of progressive political correctness — led a discussion that tried to persuade viewers of the insignificance of the suspect’s ties to Islam.
Since the beheading of a worker at a food processing plant in Moore, Oklahoma last week, it’s come to light that the alleged killer, 30-year-old Alton Nolen, is affiliated with a mosque in Oklahoma City and has numerous Facebook posts referencing Islam and jihad. In one post, Nolen warned that Sharia law is coming to America.
Nolen, who is recovering from a gunshot wound that stopped his murderous rampage, is expected to be charged today with first-degree murder.
Also over the weekend, it was reported that another Oklahoma man has been arrested for threatening to behead a co-worker. Via breitbart.com:
In what the local media is calling “a bizarre coincidence,” police arrested a fired Oklahoma City nursing home worker on Friday after he allegedly threatened to cut off a co-worker’s head.
Via The Oklahoman: Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on a terrorism complaint. His bail is set at $1 million.
“We take these threats very seriously,” Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said.
Muriithi, a native of Kenya, worked at Bellevue Nursing Home in northwest Oklahoma City, according to police. His arrest Friday coincided with the revelation that fired Vaughan Foods worker Alton Alexander Nolen/Jah’Keem Yisrael had beheaded a co-worker after he was fired the day before.
