By now you’ve heard of the compound in New Mexico where children were being both abused and taught to become school shooters.
The makeshift compound — located near the Colorado border — was found shielded by old tires, wooden pallets and other debris. Upon authorities’ arrival, Wahhaj was “heavily armed with an AR15 rifle, five loaded 30 round magazines, and four loaded pistols, including one in his pocket when he was taken down,” Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said.
The sheriff said the children, ages 1 to 15, “looked like third world country refugees not only with no food or fresh water, but with no shoes, personal hygiene and basically dirty rags for clothing.”
The only food investigators found were some potatoes and a box of rice inside a dirty trailer, the sheriff said, adding that the living conditions were “the ugliest looking, filthiest” he’s ever seen.
On CBS This Morning within five minutes of each appeared two stories. One of the compound and one of sexual abuse by a priest. First, the priest:
The first Pennsylvania statewide investigation into abuses by Catholic priests is expected to be released any day now. The grand jury report details allegations against more than 300 priests in six dioceses, covering more than 1.7 million parishioners. Attorney General Josh Shapiro led the 18 month-long investigation.
“abuses by Catholic priests” Got that? Catholic. Then this segment on the compound
Watch it. There is a word missing from the report, maybe two: Islam and Muslim.
Not one word about the religion of those abusing the children. CBS did not characterize the first story as “abuses by men of a certain cloth.” No, they nailed it down: Catholic.
In one story the religion was important and in the other, well, you don’t need to know.
CBS was not alone. Washington Post? An “adult suspect.”

NBC? It was “a man.”
Obviously not Catholic or we would have heard about it. That’s the way it went for virtually all the networks:
While all three networks dedicated time to the story over the last couple of day, none of them had mentioned the ties to radical Islam. It would be one thing to not report it if it was pure speculation, but since the Taos County Sheriff’s Office came out and declared them “extremist[s],” it was a key detail that needed to be included.
CNN tried to smother the religious affiliation:
“Last week, the sheriff here, the local sheriff, said that he believed that the folks on this compound — the adults at least — were extremists of the Islamic belief, but when he was pressed on that he did not follow up,” McLean explained. “I cannot stress enough here that these people have not been charged with conspiracy to commit school shooting. … This is just one singular point in a charging document.”
And there’s more. The alleged leader, Siraj Wahhaj, is the son of Siraj Wahhaj Sr, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 WTC bombing.
And there’s more. Siraj Wahhaj Sr, that unindicted co-conspirator of the 1993 WTC bombing, is the mentor of Linda Sarsour
And there’s more:
Why would the son of the guy who led a "JIHAD CAMP" a few weeks before 9/11 and who testified for the Blind Sheikh be at an armed camp of Islamic extremists? It's a great mystery. ➡️11 kids found on New Mexico compound were there with Muslim extremists https://t.co/nm1unLU8Pa pic.twitter.com/YUefNxQjzC

I find it very interesting what networks find important for people to know and what they do not want people to know. They owe it to us to admit there are third rails they will not be touching- and explain why. Associating one religion with misdeeds and not another is bias.
Intentionally avoiding the truth- keeping viewers ignorant- makes the press the enemy of the people.
So liberals rase a rukus when conservatives come toa school and so they want to shout tem down but say nothing of some islamic radical teaching kids to be terrorists LIBERALS ARE IDIOTS
heavily armed (not really)with an AR15 rifle, five loaded 30 round magazines, and four loaded pistols
for the entire compound, preppers are laughing
They are also looking at this compound and thinking WTF is that an air shot of the dumps?
Granted they had evil intent but starving your students to death is not an effective plan.
Its a good thing Obama and Hillary didnt know of them or they would be much better equipped and financed.
Um… the local cops raided this place and shut it down, not the FBI? Oh, that’s right, they’re REAL busy trying to depose Trump.
The way this was reported, the direction the report was steered and the vital information left absent definitely qualifies as “fake news”. Can anyone see why Trump says “fake news” is the enemy of the people?
I wonder if they have an EPA permit for disposal of all those tires. They could be in REAL trouble.
Catholicism has to be corrupted to be evil.
Islam is evil at it’s core.
The RADICAL Islamic Jihadists are trained to shoot. The MODERATE Muslims are trained to make “briefcase clocks”.
Evil is an equal opportunity employer.
The media also neglected to mention was that Ibn is the son of Siraj Wahhaj, a controversial Brooklyn imam of the same name who just also happens to be the mentor of left-wing activist, terrorist apologist and “anti-American mouthpiece” Linda Sarsour.
Linda called for Muslims to wage a “jihad” against President Donald Trump and issued a shout-out to Wahhaj, whom she described as a “mentor, motivator and encourager” of hers.” Video.
Authorities only went there because the man’s 3-yr-old son was missing.
The remains of a child were found that could be his son.
We realize that. What we wonder, though, is why it important for the leftist media to try and cover up the evil they don’t want to acknowledge. Is it THAT important to make the conservative white male the ultimate villain?
I don’t believe there was any more question in anyone’s mind about the New Mexico group being Muslim than about the pedophile priests being Catholic. Neither tells the full and true story of the religions they claim as their own. If you want to generalize about one group from certain specific cases, you might as well generalize about the other.
@Nanny G: The Imam grand daddy confirmed the dead child was the disabled 3 year old. He also used the worn out his son has a mental illness line.
Michell is great! She is very smart, loves america and has guts! ” A man” Cronkite live on in Press bigotry! A may my a– you America haters! Walter still has a big influence on the MSM!
“may” is man
@Greg: Pedophile priests don’t train the alter boys to shoot up schools. And, an Imam is not a “priest”. And Catholics do not carry out terrorist attacks in the name of Catholicism. Reporting the details prevents generalizations.
@kitt: Sad about the boy.
But that old “he’s mentally ill,” canard is getting old.
It means ALL good Muslims are mentally ill because they act on those congregational obligations while the rest of the congregation merely SUPPORTS them.
Remember folks, there are TWO types of obligations in Islam.
From the Hadiths:
Fardh ‘Ayn -It is the Fard that is a compulsory duty on every single Muslim to perform, like praying and fasting.
Fard Kifaya – It is the Fard, that if performed by some (a sufficient number), the obligation falls from the rest.
This man was “trusted” by enough of his congregation PAID to have their children trained by the guy.
Then, to top it off, they “trusted” him enough to put some of their children under his 100% supervision!
The congregation didn’t think he was “mentally unstable,” until now when the secular (infidel) gov’t got involved and the death penalty might be on the table.
@Nanny G: I’m for the death penalty make his last meal be what ever food was left in his lil jihad nest.
@kitt: I would suggest pork chops or a BLT.
I hope RW is enjoying his trip to Spain and wish him a safe return https://europe.infowars.com/a-month-of-multiculturalism-in-spain/
