    More evidence that the leftist establishment in America basically cares more for advancing their broken narrative than actually protecting Americans.

    Noor was unfit to be a police officer and engaged in reckless and bizarre behavior while being an officer, but nobody wanted to remove him. He was supposed to be the shining light that would snub the "racist" attitudes of the Left, but, not only could he not do his job, he proved also to be a murderer.

    The whole article from Robert Spencer is great:

    Identity politics kills. If there is any lesson to be drawn from the killing of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, that is it. The city of Minneapolis was so eager to have a Somali Muslim police officer on the force that it hired a man who had been found incompetent to hold the job. Further, it did not fire him even when he proved that he was indeed unfit to be a cop.

    Fox News has reported that “the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond once put a gun to a driver’s head during a traffic stop and sometimes ignored calls, according to court filings indicating that psychiatrists and training officers voiced concerns about his fitness for duty.”

    Not only that, but “[Mohamed] Noor was flagged by two psychiatrists during a pre-hiring evaluation in early 2015. The psychiatrists said he seemed unable to handle the stress of regular police work and exhibited an unwillingness to deal with people.”

    The psychiatrists added: “Noor was more likely than other candidates to become impatient with others over minor infractions, have trouble getting along with others, to be more demanding and to have a limited social support network. The psychiatrists said he ‘reported disliking people and being around them.’”

    But he was hired anyway. The foolishness of that decision became clear almost immediately.

    “In one instance two months before the shooting, Noor reportedly pointed a gun at the head of a driver who was pulled over for giving the middle finger to a bicyclist and then passing a vehicle without signaling.”

    The Minneapolis Police Department and city officials wanted Mohamed Noor to succeed so badly, he was placed on and graduated from a fast-track program to get onto the force in the first place. He was the first Somali Muslim on the Minneapolis police force; in 2016, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges expressed her excitement about that fact: “I want to take a moment to recognize Officer Mohamed Noor, the newest Somali officer in the Minneapolis Police Department. Officer Noor has been assigned to the 5th Precinct, where his arrival has been highly celebrated, particularly by the Somali community in and around Karmel Mall.”

    Hodges wasn’t excited because Mohamed Noor had the skills necessary to become a fine police officer. She was only excited because he represented a religious and ethnic group that she was anxious to court.

    His competence as a police officer was always secondary to his ethnicity and religion.

    Thus he remained on the force even though there were three complaints against him in two years. A neighbor reported: “He is extremely nervous ... he is a little jumpy ... he doesn’t really respect women, the least thing you say to him can set him off.” When the neighbor heard that Noor was the cop who had shot an unarmed woman, he wasn’t surprised: “When they say a policeman shot an Australian lady I thought uh oh, but then when they said who it was, I was like, ‘OK.'”

    None of the indications of Mohamed Noor’s unfitness to a police officer mattered to Minneapolis officials. They had too much invested in his success to acknowledge that their exercise in diversity and multiculturalism was a miserable failure. Noor was a symbol of our glorious multicultural mosaic. He was a rebuke to “Islamophobes” and proof that what they say is false. He was, for Minneapolis authorities, nothing less than the triumph of their worldview.

    Apparently there was nothing whatsoever he could have done to be removed from the police force -- until he killed Justine Damond. But even then, he remained on the force for months after the shooting. Noor could have marched into Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges’ office and announced that she would henceforth be his infidel slave, and he would have remained on the force.

    If the Minneapolis Police Department hired and fired police officers based upon their fitness for the job, and not on their usefulness as symbols of Minneapolis’ commitment to diversity and resolve to fight “Islamophobia,” Justine Damond would be alive today.

    Oh, I see. A grand total of 1 (one) hiring mistake by a grand total of 1 (one) security department in a country of over 300,000,000 people proves beyond a shadow of a doubt the liberals don't care about protecting their fellow citizens. And this is coming from FOX News, the "gold standard" of unbiased news reporting. Right-o 🙄

    Advancing their ‘broken’ narrative.

    Gotta love this idea that instead of argumentation, you hope to influence people with adjectives.

    What makes it even worse, is that you use it in such a fashion that one should presume that it’s a fact and everyone knows it as a fact.
    And in so doing, you’re actually using it as a tautology (pleonasm).

    It really and truly makes for extremely boring reading.

    The white nationalist Philokalia earlier loudly insisted that Michael Chang is 'all American'
    and absurdly denied that he has any sense of Chinese (or 'Asian' ) heritage at all.
    Michael Chang was born in the USA to Chinese immigrant parents, given a Chinese name
    at birth, and apparently grew up speaking Mandarin Chinese as well as English.
    As I recall, Michael Chang dedicated his winning the 1989 French Open to the Chinese people.

    Now Philokalia describes Mohamed Noor as only a 'Somalia Muslim', denying his American identity.
    Mohamed Noor was not born in the USA, yet he arrived as a child and grew up in the USA.
    (Most likely, he's a naturalized US citizen, though I have not yet found confirmation of it.)
    A local newspaper reports that Noor insisted that his son's first language be English, not Somali.
    Mohamed Noor's of Somali Muslim heritage, yet he's also American (by experience or choice).

    If Mohamed Noor had won a major sports event, then would Philokalia embrace him as 'American'?

    Philokalia also likes to falsely accuse me of being the only person who's concluded that he's a racist.

    This is a representation of what poor hiring for diversity's sake can result in.

    Of course, often times the resulrs are far less dramatic.

    But this must be embarrassing for you, nonetheless.

    Robert Spencer is an infamous racist?

    Aren't you thinking of Richard Spencer?

    ... Or, let me guess, by Antifa standards, everyone who isn't Antifa is a racist, and thus they're all racists? Is that the angle we're going for?

    Kaz, you call people racist all the time along with Duchy because neither of you two can actually handle a bigger picture debate on this topic and others.

    No, Richard Spencer is a different one. Robert Spencer is the guy who was banned from entering the U.K. because he wanted to drum up some hate at a rally organized by neo-Nazis.

    I wasn't "debating" your inane article, just pointing out something I found ironic and amusing.

    i am sure you will be making a thread about this any day now:

    I mean, if you're concerned about what kind of people you let into law enforcement agencies you will definitely post about the border patrol agent accused of killing 4 women

    Robert Spencer is famous for being a hardline critique of Islam, particularly for its proclivities towards violence, and he criticizes it robustly in classical liberal terms.

    He is not racist; he is merely against Islam in a very obvious and outspoken way. This is not entirely different than the hardline critics of religion & Christianity.

    However, due to the quirky laws & Antifa thought patterns of the Euroleft, "Muslims" are a "race" (lol) so he is a racist.

    Oh, I understand how there is such a thing as people who view Arabs & other Middle Easterners as if they are a "Muslim race" and treat them with bigoted & ignorant racism. That is undeniable.

    But let's not be silly.

    Would you like to defend the idea that he is a "racist?"

    Or are you still stinging from when Wajoma made you look foolish on this very topic?

    This seems to be a very difficult subject for you. Once again, there is no biological basis for race. It's something people made up before they knew about genetics, and not everyone (including you) has caught up with the science yet. "Muslim," "black", "Asian," etc. are all not races, biologically, and can all be regarded as races, socio-culturally, in the context of racism and the discrimination against those (perceived) groups.

    Now, why would someone be a "hardline critique (sic)" of Islam, but not of a 99.9% identical religion? And why would that same person voluntarily associate with neo-Nazis?

    (1) Can two ethnic Korean people have a blond hair, blue eyed baby?

    Of course not. They don't have those traits. Likewise, two ethnic Wolofe people wouldn't have a baby that looks like a Korean child.

    When two sets of people have different traits, they are classified differently.

    In this case, it's called race.

    (2) What religion is 99 percent like Islam?

    Unless you're like suggesting that Alawuites or some such are like that, I won't be sure what to say to someone who equates things so poorly.
