Rioters Call for Freeing of Muslim Migrant Cop Who Killed Unarmed (White) Woman in Minneapolis

In other words, BLM, Antifa, institutional progressives, and hordes of plantation rioters are fine with police brutality, as long as it's directed the "right way."

Mohamed Noor is a Somali Muslim, 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 group that she was anxious to court. And it became increasingly clear — as we learned 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 Ruszczyk Damond, he would likely have done something similar at some point.

Mohamed Noor was not competent to be a police officer. If he had not been a Somali and a Muslim, he never would have been on the force at all. Identity politics kills. If there was any lesson to be drawn from the killing of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, that was it. The city of Minneapolis was so eager to have a Somali Muslim police officer on the force that it hired a man who had been found incompetent to hold the job. Even worse, Minneapolis officials did not fire him even when he proved that he was indeed unfit to be a cop.

Now the rioters who are burning down Minneapolis want Noor freed. This is one small indication that these riots are the ugly result of decades of miseducation in which people have been relentlessly hammered with the idea that race and gender and ethnicity are paramount, nothing else matters, and America is intrinsically and systematically racist. So if Mohamed Noor is in prison, it doesn’t matter what he did. He is there solely because he is black, Somali, and Muslim, and must be freed. As the burning of Minneapolis shows, identity politics kills even those who assiduously courted the groups it anoints as victims, and hence sinless and to be preferred over all others.
