Skip to comments.Cop killer hailed as 'Muslim martyr'
Posted on 12/02/2009 10:46:40 AM PST by American Dream 246
Maurice Clemmons, the alleged shooter in the Sunday murder of four Lakewood, Washington police officers, was killed early yesterday morning by a Seattle police officer.
The blogsite Fire Andrea Mitchell reported that a Nation of Islam offshoot called National Black Foot Soldiers held a protest today outside the Parkland, Washington coffee shop where the murders occurred. The protesters allegedly gathered to celebrate Clemmons as a "Crowned BOW (Black on White) Martyr," calling his attack a "preemptive strike on terrorists..."
The substance of this story was originally announced by a blog called the Last Crusade, which has also claimed that Clemmons converted to Islam while imprisoned in Arkansas. Gateway Pundit picked up the story as well, noting however, that Last Crusade's claim of Clemmons' conversion is unsubstantiated.
A black militant site called "Black Male Felon" seemingly described the protest:
The rally came after a reported emergency meeting held by the [Black Foot Soldiers] movement to to map out plans for a street penitentiary protest and street party that will be held to disrespect tributes, memorials and funerals whites are expected to have for the terrorists.
Whatever the Black Foot Soldiers may be planning, there actually was no "rally." Spokesmen for both the Lakewood and Tacoma, Washington police departments said they had not heard of anything like that going on. The Pierce County Sheriff's office, which is handling the coffee shop shooting investigation, stated unequivocally that there was no such protest.
The truth is actually worse. The Black Foot Soldiers were not protesting, except perhaps online, but they were referring to Clemmons' attack as a protest:
Seattle Black Foot Soldiers say the four people slain in a daring demonstration at the Steele Street Forza Coffee House in Parkland were racist terrorists who caused black citizens to live in fear. (Emphasis added.)
What these groups say is that any killing of whites, including in this case Clemmons' cold-blooded murder of officers Renninger, Owens, Griswald, and Richards, is "a legitimate protest". Black Male Felon celebrates the killings as "Brother Maurice Clemmons' daring stand against white police terrorism." The theme of National Black Foot Soldiers is captured in the slogan: "When whites pay reparations there will be no more black on white crime."
The vitriolic hatred on these sites is enough to turn a person's stomach. The bit of writing contained on these sites is essentially a collage of run-on sentences spewing foul language interspersed liberally with admonitions to kill whitey. They blatantly advocate murder and defend other recent cases of seemingly senseless black on white killings, like the four Oakland police officers killed by Lovelle Mixon, and many, many others.
Many who voted for Barack Obama believed his election would finally put an end to this kind of racist hatred. Indeed, he promised to work toward that end. If anything however, his election seems to have emboldened it. Jeremiah Wright should have been a warning.
It is pointless to argue with the kind of lunatic delusion that motivates these people. They are beyond reaching. It recalls the video of "Professor" Kamau Kambon advocating ing the extermination of white people. The Black Male Felon site defines the terms BOW (black on white) BOB (black on black) WOB (white on black) and WOW (white on white), while the National Black Foot Soldiers objects to black on black killing, but not killing per se, reminding its readers "THERE IS 1 ENEMY. LET US HAVE 1 MIND. [sic]"
It is not known at present whether or not Clemmons was associated with any of these groups, but one post ascribes a quote to Clemmons, in which he says: "Watch the news, I'm gonna kill a bunch of cops."
Whatever the case, it is likely that Clemmons knew he would find police victims at that coffee shop. The Forza Coffee Company was founded by a retired police officer. And while the Steele Street franchise where the shootings occurred had no tie to him, it was apparently a place frequented by local police.
The coffee company has set up a charity for the families of these fallen officers. Learn more by following this link.
One down....a million to go....
Race War 2010....coming to a neighberhood you live in, soon.
So he is Muslim. I thought all the ones saying it must be a Muslim (before we even found out who pulled the trigger) had to be wrong.
I don’t know if he pulled the trigger because he’s Muslim. I still think he just hates LEO.
“The theme of National Black Foot Soldiers is captured in the slogan: “When whites pay reparations there will be no more black on white crime.” “
And I'm not buying that hillside property in Southern California either.
Bring it on my brutha!
Let me introduce all you black racist jackasses to Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson....
Uh, I don’t mean to disrespect the brothers and their “movement”, but these clowns can go f themselves.
When Clemmons was arrested in May on the assault charges, At the time of his arrest, he allegedly made religiously-themed comments, told the officer President Obama and Lebron James are his brothers, Oprah (Winfrey) is his sister and referred to himself as the beast, .
I do wonder what the religiously-themed comments” were. Notice the news left that out.

So just exactly are we talking about here? These are the things we know for sure: Four cops are dead. One cop killer is dead. Nine kids lost a parent. And Mike Huckabee ain't gonna run for president.
I am not sure how to take your comment.
As Obama would say; But the police acted stupidly...
On the other hand, according to other reports (including the child rape charges), he kept saying he was Jesus.
But tea party demonstrators are dangerous.
LOL! Hey, maybe he’s just crazy!
Taking pictures and locating target to begin now.

“When I get to the bottom
I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and turn
and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Do you don’t you want me to love you
I’m coming down fast but I’m miles above you
Tell me tell me come on tell me the answer
and you may be a lover but you ain’t no dancer
Didn’t Manson predict race wars?
...I meant it is a good thing he is gone and there are others like him that need to go too
I first read it as racist (as in, “good, a black guy got killed”).
I was shocked and appalled, but my English is not very good, so I was hoping I was wrong and just did not understand.
Glad to know what you meant! I am sorry for being so dense!
So many early guesses confirmed.
Recent reports are that he was planning next to kill children and people at any intersection. I just posted it.
Did you see this one yet?
Here is that very legitimate protest you had mentioned...
Have you been to this website? It is truly incredibly ugly.
Wordpress has already suspended half the sites named, bless their pointy little heads. As far as the survivor site: ugly...yes surprising...no.
I couldn’t get past the first few paragraphs... I think I’ll throw up now.
The memorial is very large, more than you think from the pics. There were about 7 people looking at it..
There was a truck outside the shop which had something about industrial cleaning on it.
There was a police car stationed in the parking lot and a Lakewood police car cruising by in the same direction I was going.
I was thinking that perhaps they are keeping a really close eye on the place since the "legitimate protest" which was supposed to have had 100 people.
It's good to know some of the websites have been closed down. I will look after work tonight or in the morning.
I don't blame you for wanting to throw up. For me it's all about wow, these people have been right here in my not so distant neighborhood all this time, while I was happily going about routine visits here and there.
Anyway, hope you are all having a good evening.
I am heartened to hear the memorial is large, although I had no doubt it would be. Please know that you’re in my thoughts and prayers. I know this is particularly hard on you and to know you had to drive by the coffee shop this morning. ((( MarMema)))
You have both kept me afloat and sane.
((( MarMema ))) ((( amom )))
((( Hugs to all on our thread )))
That is definitely a rude awakening for you.
We are all here for each other at times like this, when the immediate environment seems hostile.
No problem my dear.
You are very sweet. Generally, when I misunderstand something people jump all over me.
Is anyone interested in helping me shut down this website? I have emailed them and got back a general reply referring me to the help portion of their site.
I meant to ping you as well to my post above...
