Won't someone protect us from the scary weirdos?
Won’t someone protect us from the scary weirdos?

A week ago, a dozen or so very brave Texas Super Patriots proved how much they love America by standing around with guns outside a mosque in the city of Irving, to warn about the impending cataclysm of Sharia Law taking over the state. Several of these courageous souls wore masks and gave reporters only pseudonyms, to protect their identity from The Enemy. To follow up on that act of America-defending, the group’s leader, one David Wright III, posted the names and addresses of “Muslims and Muslim Sympathizers” in town, just in case anyone needed to know, or might be driving around with a Molotov cocktail they needed to dispose of.

Wright thoughtfully copied a public record of people who’d signed up to speak against a City Council resolution in March, when the Council endorsed a dumb state law intended to keep Sharia at bay. The bill failed, but rumors persist that the Islamic Center of Irving is home to a “Sharia Court,” which is actually a private mediation service similar to other dispute-resolution services operated by churches and synagogues, but far more dangerous because didn’t you hear? It’s a Sharia Court! Following widespread online ridicule of his silly armed protest outside the mosque, Wright posted the list of names and addresses Wednesday to the Facebook page of his charming little group, the “Bureau of American Islamic Relations,” complete with a scary heading:

Mind you, the post didn’t say anything (ahem) should be done (nudge-nudge) to anyone on the list (wink-wink). It was a public record, he told Fox affiliate KDFW, posted for informational purposes only. Merely a way to help the people of Irving get to know one another. And if someone happened to dispose of a brick while driving by, that’s not Wright’s fault. Why, it was no more a threat than how Operation Rescue helpfully lets people know the home addresses and children’s names of doctors who perform abortions. Just being neighborly. KDFW also reports Wright insisted “the rumors of the Sharia court are true, and he is preparing evidence and documentation to prove it.”

The list of names and addresses was soon taken down by Facebook after complaints from other users. David Wright’s personal Facebook page was also briefly unavailable; it has returned, although as of Sunday evening, it contained no content after Nov. 24, the day before the list was posted. One of the now-deleted posts featured Mr. Wright sobbing about how the mean old leftists have tried to ruin his life by posting news stories about his own attention-seeking behavior:

That’s a pretty compelling argument! “If we had a hit list and wanted to run down that list, you would have already seen it on the news!…We are self defense only, none of our members have killed any Muslims in America!” We sure are reassured. Heck, he didn’t even add “yet,” which shows how peaceable-minded he is. Needless to say, it’s all the biased media’s fault he had to post the names and addresses anyway, because how else was he to prove that Muslims want to set up an alternate justice system? Clearly, anyone speaking against that loony Texas bill favors Sharia courts, as a list of names and addresses proves beyond doubt.

On Saturday, following all the Facebook agita, roughly 200 people showed up at a rally in freezing weather to show support for the mosque, but none felt the need to carry assault rifles or tactical shotguns to protect themselves from the scary Muslims within. While nobody from BAIR showed up to bait the demonstrators, Wright took to the BAIR Twitter account to suggest that the tiny group of 200 was unimpressive compared to his mighty force of a dozen committed Patriots:

irving sharia tweet

He explained that many more than a dozen Texans agree with his little crowd of armed dolts, but many “are afraid to stand up against Islam in public at a mosque.” Also, in reply to someone who asked why he could only round up a dozen followers, Wright clarified, “We are wolves, not sheep. More sheep than wolves, do the math.” No violent intent there; it’s only a metaphor. In any case, numbers simultaneously don’t matter AND the liberal media exaggerated Saturday’s turnout, since another reporter estimated only 120 people were there, which Wright believed was still too high. Plus, he saw on Facebook that the organizer of the pro-mosque rally is a witch.

In summary: Something something Liberty, something something Sharia Law, America, the End.

    I just feel like this is appropriate in some way – take it away Your Grace:

    Vimes had once discussed the Ephebian idea of ‘democracy’ with Carrot, and had been rather interested in the idea that everyone had a vote until he found out that while he, Vimes, would have a vote, there was no way in the rules that anyone could prevent Nobby Nobbs from having one as well.

    And of course, when some right wing terrorist gun nut shoots up a mosque and kills people, the right wing will immediately say “oh we didn’t say ANYTHING that could have encouraged this kind of action” while labeling said right wing terrorist as a “leftist transgender activist”.

    We truly live in Bizarro World.

    • Cismontane

      More likely, the ring wing terrorist gun nut will actually shoot up a Sikh temple (as they’ve done on at least two occasions) or maybe just an abortion clinic, and claim that he is really attacking an ISIS mosque, and the right wing will immediately do precisely as you say. Except for Trump, he’ll insist that the temple/clinic was in fact an ISIS terror mosque and 33.3% of America will believe him.

      • clubseal

        I too felt as though the “in America” part was meant to imply that they have killed Muslims abroad. #notallsoldiers aside, it seemed clear to me.

      • handyhippie65

        well, i am an asshole. and i’m a veteran. and i have met one of my son’s friends who came back from iraq, and he believes just that, and told me so with his own words. i’m not saying all of the returning vets think like this, but some do. like it or not. i live in a red state, and am surrounded by conservative christians. anti-muslim sentiment is strong here. not like texas yet. but close.

        • Angry_Cop

          The key word here is “some”. MOST don’t. And you damn well know that too. You’ve got far more ex-military just on this board fighting on the side of the angels here, than all of the ex-military conservatards who are willing to yell at a mosque wall in the entire United States. You know this is true. So stop being a dick to the vets, because most of them are on your side. It’s not 1965 anymore.

          Also tell your kid to get better friends.

          • handyhippie65

            yes i know most of the people coming back did it for the right reasons, and i am not trying to imply anything else. the way they said they never killed any muslims here in america, implied that some of them had, just not here. i don’t personally know if any of their members are vets, but they are where someone like that would gravitate to. they were friends as kids, and he hadn’t seen him in ten years. he was in town, and looked him up. i only saw him the one time, and that was enough for me.

        • sevenoutaten

          I’ve heard the same thing from a former Ranger and he claims to have witnessed it, but chose to keep his mouth shut and live through the rotation.
          It seems alien to us misfits who served in the seventies and eighties during the Cold War, but there is a small but significant percentage who are psychopaths and enlisted hoping for thrill kills.

          I did not read this as you slamming veterans, just psychopaths.

    This is a little Texas trick of some standing. When The Heir and The Spare were still Texas schoolteens, they had a classmate whose mother was an administrator at the local (now closed) Planned Parenthood clinic. Once I was shepherding kids, as I often did, working only p/t, and I was going to take The Classmate to his home (which had extra security installed, because of his mom–I worried about that lad, because his dad had died of cancer and his mom was in this insecure profession), and he said no, drop me off at Mom’s office. So we pulled in, packed in Lars the Pretty Good Volvo, and let him out. A few days later I got a card in the mail. The protesters got your plate number, see, and a friend at the registration office gave ’em your name and address. The card had a photo (taken with a deceptive move, he’d been waiting for his flight at our little airport, and people lined up in front of him like to take a family photo, and at the flash moment, ducked out of the way, surprise!) of the attending doctor, with his name and HOME ADDRESS. I was warned by this card that an underage relative of mine might be seeking attention from this guy and that I should look up his record for malpractice complaints against him. But it looked like nothing more than an invitation to do a hit at his home. (Or my own, if I was some kind of crazy?) I let the clinic borrow it to show it to the police, but got it back–it’s around here somewhere. Chilling stuff.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

    Anyway, stories like these remind me of a time a few years back, roundabouts where I live. If you’d asked anybody here, they could all tell you in no uncertain terms of the “Russian” (American for “sounds Russian to me.” See also “Mexican”) whorehouse operating in one (no, TWO!) residential neighborhoods. They would tell you it’s a fact, and they know that because they know, or somebody they know knows, a local LEO who told them all about it (See also “Paterson, NJ”). What you wouldn’t have been able to find was one arrest of anyone, ever, for solicitation, or anybody who’d actually been to this whorehouse. On that last point I note that I know several people who not only would have availed themselves of such a service, but would not have been shy about bragging about it, either. But none of that matters because “everybody knows it’s there!”

      “Lone Wolf” just somehow sounds tougher than “Lone Puma” or “Lone Pileated Woodpecker.”

      • Msmlg1979

        How about “Rogue Shark”?

        • Jen_Baker_VA

          Lone turkey vulture

      • Lone Echidna

      • laineypc

        Lone Peckerhead

        • Vecciojohn

          Great Spotted Lone Peckerhead?

      • bupkus23

        more accurate would be “Lone Peckerwood”

      • Pumaman! He flies like a moron!

    If every black male 18-35 applied for a conceal & carry permit, then joined up with NRA there would be gun control laws so fast your head would spin.

    • Angry_Cop

      No, sad to say, what you’d be setting up would be mass vigilante slaughter of blacks throughout the whole country.

      This isn’t 1968. I think whites are over the “guilt” part of race relations.

      • Vecciojohn

        Chills you to the bone, doesn’t it?

        • Angry_Cop

          It does. Both that the result would be what I say it would, and that there are a large number of Dems who are willing to let the entire black population of this country get slaughtered just to try to pass some laws. Needful laws, to be sure, but not at that price.

          The other thing that frightens me more is Dem voters thinking we can take fifty year old strategies and fight a modern political battle with them.

      • Well, I don’t think it’d happen on day one, but I reckon there’d be an even bigger push for Stand Your Ground laws in even more states so killing black folks could be done nice and legal like the olden days.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        I wouldn’t worry about that.
        Wingtard vigilantes, for some reason *coughchickenshitcough*, don’t like to go after armed adversaries.

        • Toomush_Infer

          They’d get the cops to do it for them…I was there in Tacoma, WA in 1970 when the cops busted in on the nicest bunch of Panthers you’d ever meet…

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    They stole that hit-list idea from the anti-abortion terrorists.

    • jviscont1

      Joe McCarthy also had a list in his hands.

      • dshwa

        Say, you know who else had lists of his enemies?

        • Celtic_Gnome

          Nixon?

  • Something tells me that if the Muslims returned the favor and showed up outside of his church toting AK-47s, Mr. Wright wouldn’t see it as a peaceful protest…

    • DoILookAmused2u ?

      That’s kind of how California got gun control: Black Panthers showed up at the capitol viewing gallery in Sacremento with their rifles.

      • georgiaburning

        Yes. Governor Reagan wasted no time signing that one into law.

        • JustPixelz

          To be fair, Reagan always hated the Second Amendment. Even more so after March 30, 1981.

  • natoslug

    Do we have a list of BAIR’s supporters? It’s only fair that we know the full details of David Wright and his BAIR Backing.

  • “I wouldn’t have done this if the evil leftist media had simply agreed with my personal racist bias!”

    • As well as those darn kids and their talking dog!

  • Jeamonn

    I asked a Shepard. Only one I could find…not as big a profession as one would think in this country.

  • iGrover

    He explained that many more than a dozen Texans agree with his little crowd of armed dolts, but many “are afraid to stand up against Islam in public at a mosque.”

    Pussies – no wonder they feel the need to open carry all the time.

    • BadKitty904

      Hey, remember that FEAR is the foundation of the modern GOP…

      • GDleftyPart2

        Lee Ving would not be happy…..

      • Ryan Denniston

        Fear is a grift delivery device.

      • Amy!

        I will fear.
        Fear is the mind-killer.
        Fear is the little-death that brings social obliteration.
        I embrace my fear.
        I will permit it to flow into me and through me.
        And when it has filled me I will turn the outer eye to rage’s path.
        Where the fear has filled there will be nothing. Only fear will remain.

    I’d definitely donate to a gofundme account to finance having a group of the gheys, dressed in finest fabulous paramilitary attire troll these fuckers. May wanna tip off the local PD first before sidling up to the picket line.

      Start it. I’ll make a donation.

  • Ryan Denniston

    I do hope the irony of that masked gunman protestor looking exactlylike an ISIS fighter wasn’t on him that day.

  • TheBidenator

    Well it looks like “Get a brain, Morans!” guy spawned a son who moved to Texas, idolized bigoted assface loser Chris Kyle and decided to adopt a similar, even dumber persona….

  • TheBidenator

    This guy is one bibble pic away from making his ‘martyr confessional’ and going on a suicide rampage….I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the big difference between our wingnuts and theirs is ours are constrained by a powerful government from becoming an ISIS-like force. But the intentions are definitely there….

    • Vegan and Tiara

      Not to mention that our nuts aren’t able to follow directions and they all want to be the leader, thus they never can gather together more than about ten people willing to commit mayhem.

  • GDleftyPart2

    No irony at all that he says he’s NOT a sheep yet hashmarks Mark Levin….nope, no irony at all…

  • TheoLib

    The bill failed, but rumors persist that the Islamic Center of Irving is home to a “Sharia Court,” which is actually a private mediation service similar to other dispute-resolution services operated by churches and synagogues, but far more dangerous because didn’t you hear?

    Actually, this is a little scary. See Ed Kilgore’s 11-03-2015 article, “‘Religious’ Corporations Leaning on the Everlasting Arms of Private Arbitrators” at http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/political-animal-a/2015_11/religious_corporations_leaning058443.php.

    The article (and a linked-to 2014 article in the text) are about how, through Supreme Court decisions dating back to the Reagan years, businesses are now able to mandate arbitration (often religion-based arbitration) for disputes instead of customers being allowed to sue and especially not to bring class-action law suits. (The latter means a corporation can bilk a lot of people out of small amounts. No individual is going to sue the corporation because the cost of doing so would dwarf the amount under dispute. And since class-action law suits are not allowed, no law suits can be brought that would have an impact on the corporation.) Kilgore cites instances of companies requiring Christian- and Bible-based arbitration.

    It’s been nearly a month since I read the articles, so my memory of the details are a bit hazy. In a hand wave to bothsiderism, I should note that the early Supreme Court rulings were decided by liberal justices.

  • Boscoe

    “In summary: Something something Liberty, something something Sharia Law, America, the End.”

    It’s that “the end” part that worries me…

  • whitroth

    So the question is, are they actual members of the KKK… or is that old school, like their fathers before them?

    mark “they’re still Christianist terrorsts”

    • btwbfdimho

      Speaking of, the membership of KKK during the 1920s rounded 5 million, even politically controlled 9 states, according to ABC….Circa 10% of the US population during the roaring 20s, by adding more family members. How many today?

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RN7ftyZigYs

      • Zhu Bajie

        The KKK is out of style. Violence and racist attitudes are still common, though.

        • sillyclucker

          They’re just called patriots now.

          • Jen_Baker_VA

            I find it funny that the defenders of the white, have ditched the white and now wear black and cammo.

          • NationalGalleryofClipArt

            Sometimes, they even let Catholics join.

          • Vegan and Tiara

            Papists? NEVER!

          • Or “The Republican Party”

    • OperationAmericanJesus

      These are not patriots; they are merely Klansmen in a Stetson instead of a hood.

  • SterWonk

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t Christ supposed to be the Shepard, and Christians the sheep?

    • Celtic_Gnome

      Is this guy claiming to the living embodiment of Matthew Shepard?

    • Wait, we’re supposed to be READING that Bible thing? I thought it was just an accessory to carry around. Jesus’s Gucci purse, if you will.

  • Jen_Baker_VA

    We are wolves, not sheep.

    ROFL no, you are not a wolf, you’d piss your pants and cry (like you have) the minute anyone tells you to STFU. You, sir, are about as far away from a wolf as you can possibly be. Hell, sheep have more courage than you do.

    I am thinking A Asshole is the word you were searching for.

    • Celtic_Gnome

      This country needs more wolves. Over in the mideast fighting ISIS. You’ve got the gun and camo, it shouldn’t be hard to find a government-sponsored trip over yonder to keep us safe.

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    Reminds me of a city council meeting in our small Texas town where all but about 6 of the 100 or so people who showed up at a meeting spoke up against a resolution. The council then announced that it was not going to let the small number of people who showed up at the meeting sway their decision saying (paraphrase), “The silent majority should not be overruled by an organized mob just because they are the ones who have time to show up at meetings and write letters to the newspaper.” The resolution passed, but the outcry made them walk it back a week later.

    • Vegan and Tiara

      This is a democracy! We have to enact resolutions based on what we think people who don’t vote or say anything want, which coincidentally are the exact same views we have. FREEDOM!

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        City councils, almost by definition, are filled with people who know what’s good for everyone else.

        • Vegan and Tiara

          It’s amazing how we all sit back and let them take over the country, at a city and a state and a national level. When you ask people about specific policies, they support ours (gun control, education, infrastructure, etc…), but our people are not riled up enough to go vote. It’s tough to compete with baby parts, BENGHAZI!!!!!, Messican Homo anchor babies, etc…

    Is it possible to post the photos, names and addresses of the gun-toters outside the mosque?

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Heck no, that infringes on their freedumbs!

  • Me not sure

    Are there anti-stalker laws that would prevent being harassed by people carrying guns and following you around? This big masked guy with a gun trying to intimidate that tiny woman is what passes for courage in Texas? When he dies they can give him an enema and bury him in a shoebox.

    • HanBarbara

      They’re not the first people in the South to dress up in dumb outfits to try to terrorize people. I bet they give themselves important sounding titles like ” Imperial Wizard”, too.

      • Me not sure

        I’m not sure if that’s a Klan reference or a weird”Star Wars” reference. Pure evil either way, I’m thinking.

        • HanBarbara

          Well it was a Klan reference, but Star Wars is an interesting take.

        • bobbert

          It’s definitely a Klan ref for people of a certain age. “Imperial Wizard” was a literal title. (“Literal” in the original sense of “literal”).

          • Me not sure

            I know, those bastards used to march in the 4th Of July parade in my old home town when I was a kid. Oh wait…not the imperial storm troopers, the ones without indoor plumbing.

        It’s an old joke. I first saw it in the form of a riddle in the 60’s.

        A: Give him an enema and bury him in a shoe box

    I can’t imagine why the Muslim-terrorist-clock-making kid and his family decided to leave.

    • Given the mental acumen on display here, i think they were less afraid that he was being all “Muslim-y” and more frightened that he was actually doing s ience (which is just the foreigner version of “witchcraft”, right)

    As an Irving resident, I can tell you that the teabillies around here are fookin’ hilarious. The names at the top of the list, in support, are prime examples. If you want to see them in action just head on over to the FB page “Keep Irving Accountable”
    Your first reaction may be POE, but no, they are for real.

    The fact that people like this still exist in this day and age makes me want to…just leave this earth. Imagine what these guys would do if a group of muslims, legally brandishing semi-autos, stood in front of a church to protest?
