The Piano Guys …
Authorities are treating Thursday’s beheading at an Oklahoma food distribution center as an incident of workplace violence but that is prompting raised eyebrows among some terrorism experts.
The FBI is investigating the incident in which fired employee Alton Nolen, 30, allegedly attacked Colleen Hufford, 54, stabbing her several times before severing her head. Nolen also stabbed another women at the plant. The company’s COO, a reserve sheriff’s deputy, thwarted the second attack, shooting Nolen, who is in stable condition.
Co-workers reportedly said Nolen tried to convert them to Islam after his own recent conversion.
And Fox 25 in Oklahoma City reports that the FBI is looking into Nolen’s Facebook page. The page has anti-American rants under the name “Jah’Keem Israel.”
The station said the Facebook page has several photos of Usama bin Laden and a screen shot from the 9/11 terror attacks. It also shows a man with a quote: “I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smile ye above their necks and smite all their fingertips off them.”
Colin Clarke, a Rand Corp. terrorism expert, told Fox & Friends Saturday that the beheading was an act of terrorism and should be characterized as such.
“Calling it workplace violence is counterproductive,” he said.
I guess that depends on whether or not admitting that, Yes, Virginia, Jihadists are committing terrorist acts in America, is in the best interests of the Obama regime.
Certainly, “moderate” Muslims will rally to help out the local community and show their disgust with jihadist terrorism, right?
Saad Mohammad, a spokesman for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, told NewsOK.com that leaders of the society’s mosque are taking security precautions to protect Muslims who gather there from any potential retaliatory violence.
Mohammad said any anti-Muslim sentiments local residents might have could be heightened due to the beheadings and violence overseas by Islamic State militants.
Yes, yes, it is always about the Colonizers, and the kafir should just shut-up and deal with it.
Religion of Pieces.
“Workplace violence” to be declared in 3 … 2 … 1
Police say a woman who was killed by a co-worker at a food distribution center in suburban Oklahoma City was beheaded.
Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said Friday that the woman, who has not been identified, was beheaded by a man who attacked her and another woman Thursday at Vaughan Foods in Moore.
An off-duty officer who was working at the business shot the suspect. The surviving victim and the suspect were still hospitalized Friday.
The motive for the attack was unclear, but Lewis said the suspect and the victims were apparently not involved with each other outside of their work at the business.
Moore Police say Vaughn Foods Murder suspect Alton Nolan was trying to convert workers to muslim religion.

According to Sgt. Jeremy Lewis with the Moore Police Department, coworkers told police that the suspect, 30-year-old Alton Alexander Nolen, had recently converted to Islam to become a Muslim. Coworkers said he had been trying to convert them to Islam, as well. [...]
When officers arrived at the scene, police said they found two victims, 54-year-old Colleen Hufford and 43-year-old Tracy Johnson. Hufford was beheaded, and Johnson was suffering from multiple knife wounds.
According to police, Nolen, the suspect, had already been shot by off-duty reserve deputy Mark Vaughan when officers arrived. Vaughan is the Chief Operating Officer of Vaughan Foods.
Both Johnson and Nolen were transported to the hospital. They are said to be in stable condition.
During a news conference Friday morning, Sgt. Lewis said Nolen was a production line employee at the business and was recently terminated. After being terminated, Nolen reportedly went to the parking lot and drove his vehicle to the front of the business, where he hit another car. He then walked into the front office and began attacking Hufford and Johnson.
Nolen reportedly beheaded Hufford, and was still assaulting Johnson when deputy Mark Vaughan fired shots at him. Sgt. Lewis hailed Deputy Vaughan as a hero for saving Johnson’s life and ending the threat.
U of Michigan — “discounted feelings” & “withholding sex” are just other forms of “sexual violence” [Darleen Click]
If there are any clearer examples of how Leftists want to be in charge of every individual’s life to be had, the wave of authority over the dating habits of adult students who attend colleges and universities sets a pretty high bar …
The redefinition of the word violence continues among revelations that discounting a sexual partner’s feelings and withholding sex constitutes sexual violence at the University of Michigan. The relevant info can be found at the university’s “Stop Abuse” webpage:
Examples of sexual violence include: discounting the partner’s feelings regarding sex; criticizing the partner sexually; touching the partner sexually in inappropriate and uncomfortable ways; withholding sex and affection; always demanding sex; forcing partner to strip as a form of humiliation (maybe in front of children), to witness sexual acts, to participate in uncomfortable sex or sex after an episode of violence, to have sex with other people; and using objects and/or weapons to hurt during sex or threats to back up demands for sex.
Criticizing someone sexually and withholding sex are unkind things to do, but they aren’t violent acts in and of themselves. Indeed, a university spokesperson could only defend the definitions as appropriate within “a larger context,” according to Derek Draplin of The College Fix:
The definitions of behaviors of violence … describe most accurately what occurs in an abusive relationship,” [U-M spokesperson Rick Fitzgerald] said in an email. “Those behaviors not in the context of violence are not abusive. A reader of this site would recognize that it’s described as one behavior in the context of a pattern of behaviors to maintain power and control over an intimate partner.”
But, as Draplin writes, universities make these slips all the time—treating disfavored behavior and physically painful behavior as one and the same. He cites an interview with the sexual violence support coordinator at Brock University in Canada in which the administrator claims “anything that makes someone feel unsafe” counts as violence.
This, of course, is just another facet of the Left’s destruction of any individual agency in intent. Authors or speakers, it matters little what they actually say or what their intent was when writing/speaking, all power of interpretation is located with the recipient — as long as that recipient is a member-in-good-standing of the Leftist orthodoxy.
It has never really been about sex or race or gender or any other “ism” that the Left will demand blood for … it is, and has always been, about power. Authoritarian, totalitarian power.
That explains the irony of witnessing such draconian sexual behavior codes on college students being supported by the same Leftists who take about full page newspapers ads demanding Republicans expel “social conservatives” from their midst.
Left fascism, indeed.
A medieval Belgium city is planning to build a beer pipeline under its cobblestone streets so its citizens can enjoy the sudsy stuff without all the traffic.
Agence France-Presse reports that the pipeline is set to connect the historic De Halve Maan brewery to a bottling factory two miles away, eliminating the 500 trucks that drive down the city’s small streets each year. De Halve Maan hosts 100,000 tourists each year and local residents were concerned over the loud trucks driving through the city. [...]
The pipeline is designed to carry more than 1,500 gallons of beer each hour and construction will begin next year, according to Belgian publication deredactie.be.
Un-Islamic-Non-State ISIS not as frightening as

Therefore, ISIS will be allowed to keep its captured oil fields …
The latest series of airstrikes began with a joint U.S.-Jordanian attack on an Islamic State staging area near the border with Iraq. Later, a much larger assault struck targets in multiple locations controlled by Islamic State, officials said.
Officials said the strikes wouldn’t target fixed oil fields, a precaution intended to minimize the potential for environmental damage. The U.S. instead targeted small capacity mobile refineries used by Islamic State around northeastern Raqqa province and other locations in eastern Syria, officials said.
Either he figures he’s done enough for “his people” at this position, or some scandal is about to break that even his usual thuggish use of the DOJ can’t stop.
What will private citizen Holder do with his time? Editor at New York Times? Writer for National Inquirer? Not like there’s much of a difference, though the latter is probably requires more honesty ….
The open secret of the Left’s Eugenics
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, having decided for some inexplicable reason to do a long interview with a fashion magazine (maybe it is her celebrated collection of lace collars), reaffirmed the most important things we know about her: her partisanship, her elevation of politics over law, and her desire to see as many poor children killed as is feasibly possible.
Speaking about such modest restrictions on abortion as have been enacted over the past several years, Justice Ginsburg lamented that “the impact of all these restrictions is on poor women.” Then she added: “It makes no sense as a national policy to promote birth only among poor people.”
This is not her first time weighing in on the question of what by any intellectually honest standard must be described as eugenics. In an earlier interview, she described the Roe v. Wade decision as being intended to control population growth, “particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.” She was correct in her assessment of Roe; the co-counsel in that case, Ron Weddington, would later advise President Bill Clinton: “You can start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy, and poor segment of our country,” by making abortifacients cheap and universally available. “It’s what we all know is true, but we only whisper it.”
Obama at UN: “I have made it clear that America will not base our entire foreign policy on reacting to terrorism.” ISIS responds with another beheading [Darleen Click]
Rather, we have waged a focused campaign against al Qaeda and its associated forces – taking out their leaders, and denying them the safe-havens they rely upon.
Yeah, but safe for whom?
An Algerian jihadist group linked to Islamic State released a video Wednesday purportedly showing the beheading of a French tourist who was abducted on Sunday, a U.S. terrorist watchdog group says.
French President Francois Hollande confirmed the killing of Herve Gourdel, condemning it as a “cruel and cowardly” act.
“Our compatriot has been murdered,” Hollande told reporters ahead of his speech to the U.N. General Assembly in New York.
At the same time, we have reaffirmed that the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam.
Yeah, good luck with that.
And, like, WTF with the gratuitous reference to Ferguson?
In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions.
So the usual race-mongers take to looting in a small town and that rises to “instability” on par with Hamas raining rockets on Israel in its quest to kill all Jews or Russian-backed “rebels” in Ukraine shooting down a passenger airline?
Good flippin’ lord.
There are things no fiction writer ever would dare attempt
A mother with an interesting take on empowering female children, pseudonym Autumn, signed up to bring in baked goods to her child’s class.
But when Autumn arrived, tray in hand, every single cookie was shaped like a vagina. The teacher noted that every kind of vagina was represented, including “small, puffy, white, brown, shaved, bald, and even a fire crotch.” They were frosted accordingly.
When the teacher told Autumn that the cookies were inappropriate, the mother began yelling about the importance of young children learning about sexuality. Autumn left the cookies and stormed out.
But later that night, the teacher got an email rant that will go down in history as one of the most anti-feminist* [sic] pieces ever written. You have to read it to believe it, especially the part where Autumn wishes domestic violence on the teacher.
*The writer hasn’t had much contact with the type of “feminist” that dominates academia and media.
