A young white male named Shane McClellan was walking home near Seattle one night when he was asked by a black man and an asian man for a lighter. After stopping to oblige the other two men, McClellan says he was dragged some distance away, beaten, and tortured for hours. He said he repeatedly asked why he was being beaten. The response that continued to come back was that it was because he was white and he was being paid back for what his people did to their people.

Via KOMO news.

SInce that video report, one of the assailants has been arrested according to the Seattle Times:
DNA recently linked Ahmed Mohamed and Jonathan Baquiring to the attack in which a 16-year-old boy was robbed, taunted with racial insults, burned with a lit cigarette and punched repeatedly. Mohamed, 22, and Baquiring, 21, each were charged Monday with first-degree robbery and malicious harassment, the state's hate-crime statute.

Baquiring was booked into the Seattle Correctional Facility just after 6 p.m. Tuesday, according to the King County Jail Booking Register. His bail is set at $500,000.

Seattle police are still searching for Mohamed.

On Monday, September 20th, Muslim representatives of various groups gathered outside the proposed site for the Ground Zero mosque to show solidarity and support for the project. Two of the leaders (Mahdi Bray and Nihad Awad) have very close ties to Hamas. Bray was caught on video fundraising for Hamas and Awad's organization (CAIR) was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

How about the guy with the red beard standing behind them? Although I don't know his name, Jihad Watch's Robert Spencer has informed me that the man likely dyed his beard in honor of Muhammad.

Interestingly, the Barbary pirates of the 18th and 19th centuries were inspired by a man nick-named "Barbarossa" by either the Spanish or the Italians.

The pirates of that time were savages who would attack American ships and hold their crews hostage until tribute (ransom) was paid. Fortunately, as president, Thomas Jefferson decided to fight them and was ultimately victorious. If there was good to come of that war, it was that the Marines were birthed as a direct result of it.

I wrote about the modern day Barbary pirates HERE.

Personally, I would like to know what the guy with the red beard in this photo thinks of Barbarossa.

This video is definitely a must-see. It is the near perfect metaphor for what's going on in America right now. The setting is a city council meeting in Vancouver, Washington. The three people who play a central role in that metaphor are Mayor Timothy Leavitt, Council Member Jeanne Harris, and Council Member Jeanne Stewart. Harris is seated to Leavitt's left and Stewart to the left of Harris. The treatment received by constituents from Harris is beyond disgraceful.

The first constituent to speak wanted to express concerns about the Light Rail system that is apparently moving forward. Seemingly prompted by Harris' near belligerent insistence about that subject not being on the table, Leavitt instructed the citizen to keep the discussion about city business; Light Rail had become a state matter. The second bone of contention with Harris apparently was that she didn't want city council members (herself) identified specifically; constituents should only be allowed to address members collectively as a group. Stewart challenges Harris politely and seems to sympathize with the constituents.

The metaphor? As mayor, Leavitt represents the D.C. establishment. Positioned right next to him, having his ear and acting as the loud, annoying squeaky wheel is Harris. She represents lobbyists and special interests. Leavitt doesn't have the guts to cross her. Positioned farther away from Leavitt is Stewart, who exhibits rational, logical, common sense thinking. She represents the Tea Party candidates who, until now, haven't had the power or access that to the establishment that lobbyists do.

Of course, the constituents represent the Tea Party.

I promise you'll want to email Council Member Jeanne Harris after watching this so let me save you the trouble. It is: (be polite but let her know how you feel). Also, here's the City of Vancouver website.
