Leave it to mainstream media to jump to conclusions about a Houston Mosque being burnt down and before any facts were known, numerous DC media outlets immediately exploited the tragedy to place the blame for the fire on Donald Trump.
Gary Nathaniel Moore, 37, a devout Muslim, was booked into jail early Wednesday morning following a joint investigation by members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Houston Fire Department’s Arson Bureau, for burning down a Houston Mosque.
The two-alarm fire broke out Christmas Day afternoon, shortly after Friday prayers were held at the mosque which is located in a strip mall at 11246 South Wilcrest near West Bellfort.
Moore’s bond has been set at $10,000, according to Harris County District Court records. (HT Click2Houston)
Breitbart reported that using surveillance video from other area businesses to identify the arsonist, Gary Nathaniel Moore, 37, was arrested and charged with starting the Christmas Day fire that devastated a Houston, Texas mosque. Moore is a devout Muslim who attended this same mosque for years, praying up to five times a day every day of the week.
Also up in smoke is the DC Media’s hoped-for anti-GOP Narrative. Before any facts were known, numerous DC Media outlets immediately exploited the tragedy to place the blame for the fire on Donald Trump.
And CBS News added that advocacy groups believe there has been a spike in anti-Muslim incidents across the United States in recent weeks that can be linked to the mass shooting in California and the inflammatory rhetoric of Donald Trump and other Republican presidential candidates. And they say that Muslims are fearful the backlash could lead to further harassment and violence.
CNN reported that the Houston chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations called on authorities to investigate the fire for an anti-Muslim motive.
“Because of the recent spike in hate incidents targeting mosques nationwide, we urge law enforcement authorities to investigate a possible bias motive for this fire,” Mustafaa Carroll, the chapter’s executive director, said in a statement.

The media’s playbook is always to immediately use any disaster or crime as a means to make the GOP answer for it. Then, once the facts come out and point to a member of the Protected Class, the story is memory-holed and the accusation against the Republican lingers.
Because a devout Muslim has been charged, no doubt DC Media will forget all about the incident. We can’t have negative media drawing attention to Muslim acts of terror, which this surely is. Especially something like this – he burnt his own Mosque down!
