JUSTINE DAMOND: She Was Not Suffering From Islamophobia, But Perhaps She Should Have Been


A forty-year-old Australian woman named Justine Damond called 911 in Minneapolis Saturday night to report what she thought might be a rape; when police arrived, she approached the police car, and a Minneapolis police officer named Mohamed Noor shot her dead. Since then, Noor has refused to be interviewed by investigators, but has spoken to friends about what happened and why. The more Noor and those who know him have spoken, the more it becomes clear: Justine Damond was a casualty of “Islamophobia.”

Mohamed Noor is a Somali Muslim. He was the first Somali Muslim on the Minneapolis police force. In 2016, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges expressed her excitement about that fact: “I want to take a moment to recognize Officer Mohamed Noor, the newest Somali officer in the Minneapolis Police Department. Officer Noor has been assigned to the 5th Precinct, where his arrival has been highly celebrated, particularly by the Somali community in and around Karmel Mall.”

Hodges wasn’t excited because Mohamed Noor had the skills necessary to become a fine police officer. She was only excited because he represented a religious and ethnic that she was anxious to court. And it is increasingly clear, as we learn about Mohamed Noor’s nervousness and jumpiness and lack of respect for women, and from his own account of events that he relayed to friends (that he was “startled” and reacted by opening fire), that Mohamed Noor was not cut out to be a policeman. He did not have the temperament for it, and if he hadn’t killed Justine Damond, he would likely have done something similar at some point.


So why was he on the force at all? Because he was the first Somali Muslim on the Minneapolis police force. He was a symbol of our glorious multicultural mosaic. He was a rebuke to “Islamophobes” and proof that what they say is false. Minneapolis authorities placed a great deal of faith in Mohamed Noor. He was for them the triumph of diversity, the victory of their worldview. But he has let them down.
Mohamed Noor is not a jihad terrorist. This was not a jihad attack. He is just a trigger-happy, panicky, reckless individual who held his job not because he was fit for it, but because of what he symbolized. And in the wake of his failure, Minneapolis multiculturalists aren’t about to reconsider their religion. On the contrary, they are doubling down. Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges has immediately recognized — as authorities do everywhere after jihad attacks — that the real victims are not those who were killed or wounded, but the Muslim community. She should have issued a statement saying that she recognized that Mohamed Noor was not hired because he was competent, but because he was a Somali Muslim, and that she sees now that Leftist social engineering on the police force costs lives. She should have promised that from now on, police officers will be hired based on their fitness for the job, not their religion or ethnicity.

Instead, this, from Hodges’ Facebook page:

To the Somali community: I want you to know that you are a valued and appreciated part of Minneapolis. I stand with you and support you. The strength and beauty of the Somali and East African communities are a vital part of what makes Minneapolis so strong and beautiful. I am grateful to be your neighbor.

This week a Somali police officer, Officer Mohamed Noor, shot and killed a woman under circumstances we don’t yet comprehend. Justine Damond’s death was tragic and awful for everyone. And I want to be very clear that Officer Noor, a fully trained officer in the Minneapolis Police Department, won’t be treated differently than any other officer.

Justine’s death is a tragedy for our city. We cannot compound that tragedy by turning to racism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia. It is unjust and ridiculous to assert that an entire community be held responsible for the actions of one person. That will not be tolerated in Minneapolis. If you are experiencing discrimination, you can file a complaint at


Mayor Hodges is reassuring Muslims and warning against “Islamophobia,” as if a non-Muslim police officer had shot an unarmed Muslim woman. But that’s not what happened. And in issuing this warning, Hodges is only reinforcing the false premises that led to the killing of Justine Damond in the first place: the idea that Muslims are a victimized, persecuted community that needs special consideration, such that an incompetent Muslim police officer had to be hired. This just ensures that in the future, there will be more Justine Damonds.

White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci Plans To DELETE Past Tweets Misquoting Mark Twain, Supporting Hillary And Calling for Increased Gun Control Because He Doesn’t Want To Be A ‘Distraction’




New White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci tweeted on Saturday afternoon that he planned to delete his past tweets
He called the move ‘full transparency’ so that his past views wouldn’t be a ‘distraction’
In since-deleted tweets, he stated that he hoped Hillary Clinton would run for president, advocated for increased gun laws and misquoted Mark Twain

Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci stated on Saturday afternoon that he will be deleting his tweets from years past in an act of ‘full transparency’.
Since Scaramucci, also known as ‘Mooch’, took on his new role as communications director to the President, his social media has been scoured by the public – and many of his tweets dating back to 2011 were ridiculed by Twitter users.
Including advocating for gun regulations, endorsements of Hillary Clinton, and misquoting Mark Twain, Scaramucci hopes to avoid ‘distraction’ by scouring his account.

Many of his tweets dating back to 2011 reveal views that are not-so consistent with his current role in the White House, as many Twitter users were quick to point out.
In December 2011, he ‘praised’ Governor Mitt Romney for staying out of the ‘Trump spectacle.’
In a February 2012 proclamation he calls President Trump an ‘odd guy’ who is ‘so smart with no judgment’.
When he took the podium on Friday to address reporters in regard to his new role with the White House, he flattered the President with compliments to his character.

‘I love the president and I’m very very loyal to the president,’ Scaramucci said.
‘The president is the most competitive person I’ve ever met. I have seen this guy throw a dead spiral through a tire. I’ve seen him at Madison Square Garden with a topcoat on, he’s standing in the key and he’s hitting foul shots, swishing them. He sinks three-foot putts.’
‘I don’t see this guy as a guy that is ever under siege. This is a very, very competitive person. obviously there’s a lot of incoming that’s coming into the White House. but the president’s a winner,’ he said.
