Freedom of Speech Rally II attendees will be fully armed, just in case Muslims decide to do what Muslims like to do – kill the unbelievers for insulting Islam.
* Unlike at Pamela Geller’s event where she had to pay tens of thousands of dollars for security, Phoenix police will be in attendance (at taxpayer expense) to protect Muslims at the same mosque which produced the two Muslim assassins who attacked the Garland, Texas Draw Muhammad event a few weeks ago.
ABC The organizer of Friday’s event, Jon Ritzheimer, a US Marine Corps veteran, said he had to do “something” because he does not want Islam spreading in the U.S. “We’re just out utilizing our First Amendment,” organizer Jon Ritzheimer said.
Ritzheimer said he would not shoulder any responsibility if the event turned violent. He is urging attendees to be peaceful once again, but the Facebook page for the event warns people to come armed because of a “much-anticipated attack.”
Phoenix police said they would have officers at the event, but would not provide other specifics regarding security measures.
Arizona’s designated terrorist group CAIR Council on American-Islamic Relations met with law enforcement on Wednesday and said they are grateful for their presence at Friday’s protest.
“We thank law enforcement authorities for their proactive effort to ensure the safety of the mosque’s congregation from hate-filled and armed protesters,” said CAIR-AZ Chairman Imraan Siddiqi.
“The promise of a heavy police presence at the rally of armed biker gang members will help calm fears of harassment and even attacks on worshipers.” (How about attacks BY worshippers on Americans? Not worried about that?)
