Anti-Muslim Bigot Harasses Worshippers at South Carolina Mosque

Islamic Center: Trespasser makes ‘religiously bigoted’ statements

By Brooke Whitson – email

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A worship center in the Grand Strand filed a trespassing complaint after a man drove into their parking lot and made several insulting statements.

According to a police report, someone from the Grand Strand Islamic Center on Waccamaw Boulevard called Horry County Police on Sept. 28 to report a trespassing that occurred around 4 p.m. the day before.

The alleged trespasser was an older, heavy set man with white hair and glasses. He was driving a red Chevrolet pick-up truck when he pulled into the parking lot of the Grand Strand Islamic Center that day and asked the worship center member what the building was.

After receiving an answer the man in the truck “asked whether or not the Victim had killed anyone that day,” the police report states.

The man then made several “religiously bigoted statements” before he left the area.

The man who called police said the Islamic Center has been in the Grand Strand for several years, and this was the first time they have had any problems. They are now considering putting up fencing to keep cars off the property when the building is closed.

    I wonder if that man had learning difficulties, it seems such a dumb thing to do! Thankfully he’s in the minority.

    “After receiving an answer the man in the truck “asked whether or not the Victim had killed anyone that day,” the police report states.”

    “Yeah, just this one guy… He was an older, heavyset man with white hair and glasses…”

    I hope it does as well.

    That’s ironic (the fact that they needed us, I mean). I’m more concerned about the next generation. We’ve seen it before. if society hates a group of people, that group will be prosecuted. And then the world knows it. So they put an end to it.
    Today the worst kind is the signature strikes of the drone program. No trials or anything just hit anyone nearby. And that’s bad enough already.

    Knowing what’s propaganda would require actually learning about Islam, which, if you’ve noticed, is that last thing people like Spencer, Geller and Gabrielle want the general public to do. This man could have easily visited the mosque and seen how people worship. He could easily go to the library and check out translations of the Qur’an and books on Islam and Muslim history. He could even go on the internet and do all that for free. Wikipedia is more or less neutral, and easy to search.

    The thing is, I think most Islamophobes are aware that Muslims are people. I mean, I find it hard to believe anyone could be that willfully ignorant and bigoted. But its a lot easier to hate someone who is perceived as “foreign” and an “outsider.” For politicians and business owners, Muslims make great scapegoats. People can push for war in Iraq, or Afghanistan, or Yemen because our lives don’t matter. The American public wouldn’t support a war in Ireland or Puerto Rico or wherever because more Americans actively identify with these countries, even if they are several generations removed, and have never set foot there. Also, people can blame Islam for high oil prices, instead of blaming American companies, or taxes imposed by politicians.

    For the Islamophobes, its jumping on a bandwagon. They NEED the hatred because it justified their existence. Hell, most of them have never met or known a Muslim, nor do they want to think about what we actually believe. Its much, much easier to simply parrot back some slogan and talk about how “patriotic” you are. Ten, twenty, thirty years from now, they are going to pretend they never took part in this Muslim bashing.

    I might have said that just to be a jack ass. Of course, that probably would have led to a fight… or it might have scared the bigot shitless. I mean, these same people actually believe that there is an evil Muslim conspiracy taking over America.

  • Yausari

    Do most average American think that all Muslim are murderers by default? You should be able to tell what’s propaganda and what’s not buy now. It’s that obvious.

    I hope this gets taken seriously. On a lighter note, he should have said-yes I have killed today-several people, breaking bad style-want to join them??? 😛
