It’s the Islam Stupid

The professional journalists covering the trial of the “Minnesota men” before Judge Michael Davis include the Star Tribune’s Stephen Montemayor. I rely on his work, as well as that of MPR’s Mukhtar Ibrahim and Laura Yuen. Montemayor is a good and indefatigable reporter. If you want to know what’s going on during the day at trial, follow him on Twitter. He tweets everything of interest. He misses almost nothing.

Today, however, Montemayor presents as a case study in overlooking the obvious. He is unduly concerned by the racial composition of the jury. He thinks it’s a big deal that, while the three defendants are all black, the jury is all white.

    So these Minnesota men are upset that the jury looks like a cross-section of Minnesota?

    • That’s racist!

      • The Butterfly

        Butterflies can’t be racist.

      “cross-section” — this is biased because the “cross” is a Christian symbol — please reformulate to be more sensitive to non-Christians 😉

    Even if they were 90% black they would still complain and want 90% to be fellow muslims .
    After WW2 the death camp Commanders and top brass in the SS were not allowed to be Judged by other SS brass. They were Judge by Western values which got them hanged for their crimes.
    These 8th century knuckle dragging jihadists are on trial in the USA under THEIR Laws and values and not to import the quranic death-cult laws onto US soil.

    If we in Canada allowed Politicians to be the 12 member Jury panel for a trial over a corrupt Politician that stole $$millions or ran a Fraudulent Election they would never find their Co-Criminals guilty because they too want to steal millions and buy Elections as we see in Ontario.

    I still remember when Chretien and Martin were on the Witness stand for the AdScam theft and they both boasted about how they are too stupid to be expected to know what went on under the Reign , they blamed the people under them.
    This tactic was copied by Dalton McLiar and now Wynne along with Justin l.
