While the United States had been relatively terror-free during the recent radical Islamic surge in Europe, it seems that our streak has come to an unfortunate end.
Flint, Michigan, home to a plethora of suffering at the hands of a negligent government’s inability to maintain the city’s water quality, has yet another tragedy on their hands today as a police officer was attacked in their regional airport. The assault, which occurred early Wednesday morning had more than a tinge of radical Islamic characteristics, as the Canadian-born attacker was heard to shout “Allahu Akbar”, or “God is great”, before viciously stabbing a police officer in the neck.
“The officer was taken to the hospital. Michigan State Police said the officer is in critical condition.
“Police said a suspect has been taken into custody. The airport released the following statement:
“‘All passengers are safe and are being evacuated at this time. Please check with your airline for potential cancellations or delays.’
“The FBI is leading the investigation. The Flint City Hall began operating under heightened security in an abundance of caution after the incident.”
The possibility that this attack occurred due to lax immigration policies for those entering the United States has further solidified the need for border reform in this age of international terror.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly called on congress and the nation’s courts to allow for a massive overhaul of our border system specifically to root out threats from terrorists. Should it be discovered that this Canadian-born terrorist was flying into the U.S. from one of the countries on Trump’s “ban” list, there will be blood on the hands of the meddling leftist judges who have thrice struck down the President’s executive orders.
We must also be weary of the massive spin that this incident will receive from the mainstream media. Whether they choose to ignore the attack altogether in favor of the Russian conspiracy obsession they hold, or if they are to downplay the terrorism angle due to their capitulation of radical Islam, they will be doing a disservice to the vast majority of Americans who wish to be protected from and prepared for further violence in the name of the Muslim faith.
