Right Wing Parrots Launch Into Fear-Mongering Bigoted Frenzy Over Oklahoma Workplace Murder

Dependably bigoted

The entire right wing blogosphere is in a frenzy of anti-Muslim bigotry over this awful story out of Oklahoma: Suspect in Co-Worker’s Beheading Was Recently Released From Probation.

A 2010 booking photo of Alton Nolen from the Logan County Sheriff’s Office in Oklahoma.

A man suspected of beheading a woman he worked with and stabbing another was a convicted felon who had been released from probation this year, Oklahoma corrections officials confirmed Thursday.

Alton Nolen, 30, was released from probation in April, earlier than the original 2017 date, said Jerry Massie, a spokesman for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.

Nolen has a string of convictions from 2011, including marijuana possession, escape from detention, assault and battery on a police officer and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, according to records from state corrections officials.

FBI and police in Moore, Okla., are investigating the incident, which occurred at about 4 p.m. Thursday at the Vaughan Foods plant, Sgt. Jeremy Lewis of the Moore Police Department told The Times on Friday. Nolen was shot during the attack and is hospitalized, according to authorities.

Why are the right wing blogs fear-mongering like rabid weasels over this? Because Nolen reportedly is a recent convert to Islam. That’s all it takes for them to label him a “Muslim terrorist” and start screeching about Muslims in general supporting terrorism.

But the story is sadly straightforward — Nolen was fired from his job, and angry about it. He had a long history of criminal behavior, including assault, and he took out his anger on his co-workers like many disgruntled former employees before him. Pointing at Islam as his motivation is nothing but sheer bigotry, especially coming from the crowd that invariably excuses gun violence as “mental illness” when it’s committed by a white person.

And by the way, here’s another detail from this story that seems to be omitted from the right wing’s shrieking fear frenzy:

According to the department’s database, Nolen had “Jesus Christ” tattooed across his chest…

Really? So would it be fair then for me to label this as an act of “Christian terrorism?”

Of course not. And that’s the point.

As an example of the right wing’s sheer bigoted craziness, hate-monger Jim Hoft, the Dumbest Man on the Internet, has posted about this story no fewer than seven times so far:
