Islamists attack Texas free speech event, shot dead

Brian LilleyArchive

Two Islamists were shot dead after attempting an attack on a free speech convention that included a competition to draw the Muslim prophet, Mohammed.

The thwarted attack took place Sunday night in Garland, Texas, a city north east of Dallas.

One of the suspects, identified as Elton Simpson, was place on probation in 2010 after being prosecuted for trying to join jihadist fighters in Africa.

Prior to the shooting a Twitter account, believed to be Simpson's tweeted out his wish to be seen as a soldier of Allah.

ABC News investigative reporter Brian Ross says the attack came after several calls by ISIS supporters on social media sites for American Muslims to target the event.

The Rebel's David Menzies was at the scene and filed an exclusive video report:

The winning image in the contest is highly relevant given the shooting was an attempt to shut down freedom of speech.

Because of TheRebelTV commitment to cover the other side of the debate they were in a position to scoop CBC an d CTV on this story. Koodoo’s to TheRebelTV for going where others wont go and standing up for freedom and the rights of all people.

Nothing like drawing out the terrorists. Good way to thin the heard.

Again we have Jihadis who were “known to police” – this one was out on bail for previous terrorism related charges. Time for a round up of “known to police” Jihadis. Gitmo has a purpose.

These islamic terrorists were good for military target practice. Another “draw that shithead ellah” please.

I would imagine the organizers of the conference were hoping to provoke just that sort of reaction.

Glad to hear Pamela and Geert are safe. Also that the security guard is not badly injured.

Part of me wants domestic jihadis like these arrested alive, paraded for media like ISIS does, then executed and their humiliation and execution used to propagandize for our side.

But we are not ISIS. And those two scum and all scum like them, while not worth the bullets that killed them, are certainly not worth the provision of due process and American justice.

Texans know how to bait and shoot wild pigs.
