The apparent anti-Muslim assault on a New York city cabbie by a man shouting Assalamu Alaikum. Consider this a checkpoint" produced an immediate round of recriminations over its connection to opposition to a New York Islamic Center and an apparent rising tide of Islamophobia.
But as often at the intersection of politics and violent crime, the story doesn't appear to fit any easy stereotype: The alleged assailant, Michael Enright, is according to his Facebook profile and the website of the left-leaning media organization Intersections International a student at the School of Visual Arts and a volunteer for Intersections, which recently produced a statement of support for the Park51 project, and is funded by the mainstream, liberal Collegiate Church of New York.
Intersections did not respond to two messages, and the group does not appear to be picking up the phone. Enright did not respond to a message through his Facebook account.
But this appears to be the same man: Police described Enright as a resident of Brewster, 21, and an employee of an "Internet media company who had recently spent time with a combat unit in Afghanistan filming military exercises until this past May."

Glad to see my first suspisions were correct......
“Anything to further the cause” is the “reason” applied.
My my my
Of course not.... unless he was identified with the Tea Party movement.
Another 21 year old willing idiot brainwashed into committing crimes against his country ... these kids are so screwed up by the educational system today.
Sounds like your basic whack-job. Next stop: the memory hole.
“I figured it was a teaparty guy mad about Obamacare...”
It smelled funny to me from the start; it was just WAY too convenient to the ‘Islamaphobia’ meme.
Will the media report this?
They might not - it’s Obamaland....
Well... uhmmm... well, I think we all know that's what lurks in the hearts of these islamophobe bigots. He just gave voice and action to their desires as a learning moment.
This young man is a hero!

Even when a libtard does what libtards do best, they have to sell it in a way that spreads the “Republicans are violent racists” meme. Predictable.
So what happened, somebody beat up a moslum? Kick ‘em all out. islam is the enemy of the Constitution, of individual Freedoms, of Women. Its a cancerous spreading tumor, deal with it like that.
Typical move from the Left’s playbook.
I’m willing to bet the story continues without the new info.
Might. Every nutcase in the world is going to make note of this one.
So, this lefty stabbed a Muslim cabdriver and tried to come off as a Tea Party conservative? Because they are going to start the dirty tricks early for the fall election.
Gad, if it were not so transparent it would be so deadly.
Didn’t Nero do this? And Hitler? tsk tsk.
Reichstag incidents from the left and from Muslims are becoming a dime a dozen.
Couldn’t find his Facebook page...
