Las Vegas, Nevada (Accredited Times) – In times of trouble, many of us turn to the power of prayer. The Holy Quran teaches us to “establish regular prayer for celebrating [Allah’s] praise.” According to the Quran, those who fail to pray regularly will soon “face destruction.”
Like many, I turned to prayer after I heard about the attack in Las Vegas, hoping and praying that the attacker was a white male. I started ferociously searching the Internet for news on the shooter’s identity. What was the shooter’s name? Does he have a Facebook page? Does his Facebook page have any Sarah Palin references on it? What about Trump? Was he white? Please, Allah, make him white!
Then I learned the shooter’s identity: Stephen Paddock, 64. Baby Boomer. White Male.
Yes! Praise be to Allah!
The fake-news-spreading alt-right, of course, speculated that Paddock may be a Muslim convert, a “Bernie Bro,” or even a member of Antifa. But we know the truth: White Privilege kills.
I called my friend Muhammad, who was equally ecstatic over the news. “Yep, it was a white male!” he cheered. Another friend, Ahmed, came into the room pumping his fists while taking a knee like an NFL superstar. He put out his hand for a high-five: “This news is sure to bring down that orange bastard Trump once and for all,” he noted. Although ISIS has repeatedly called for terrorist attacks in Las Vegas, there is only one person to blame for the Las Vegas White Privilege Attack: Donald Trump.
The Accredited Times, of course, has been proven right yet again. Notably, back in July, the Accredited Times published an important article entitled, “Why Country Music Should Be Banned.” The article notes that country music and its fans are “racist, sexist, xenophobic, … (you know the rest).” Is it any wonder that violence would strike at a country music event, where hate speech is so readily propagated?
Whites need to turn inward and recognize that they are to blame for the violence, not only against themselves but also against innocent People of Color. Although other recent terrorist attacks have involved explosives, knives, and automobiles, a gun ban would have stopped the mass shooting — yet whites bitterly cling to their guns and Bibles in denial about the fact that guns are evil.
It’s time for whites to accept responsibility and stop politicizing tragedy. It’s time to ban all guns NOW.
