Violent black nationalist attacks continue - DOJ opens a civil rights investigation of Antioch shooting

Since the SPLC’s warning in August, another violent black nationalist has carried out a mass shooting attack against whites. This time, a predominantly white congregation was attacked at their place of worship.

On Sunday, September 24, 2017, Emanuel Kidega Samson, a Sudanese immigrant, arrived in the parking lot of the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tennessee, armed with an assault rifle and semi-automatic pistol, his face concealed by a ski-mask. Upon exiting his blue Nissan Xterra, Samson immediately shot Melanie Crow Smith, a 38-year-old mother of two children, who had just left the Sunday worship service. (Smith later died from her wounds). Samson then proceeded to the rear entrance of the church.

As he entered the church, Samson began firing randomly at the white churchgoers. Among those shot were Pastor Joey Spann, his wife and four others. As shots rang out, Parishioner Robert “Caleb” Engle ran toward them. Engle confronted the gunman and suffered severe wounds to his face as he struggled to disarm Samson. During their struggle, the gunman reportedly was shot in the chest. Engle then ran to his car and grabbed his personal handgun which he held as he guarded the wounded gunman until police arrived. Samson and his surviving victims were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.

Authorities estimate there were approximately 42 people inside the church at the time of the shooting. Investigators later found a handwritten note inside Samson’s vehicle that made reference to seeking revenge for the 2015 Charleston massacre carried out by self-proclaimed white supremacist, Dylann Roof. After the Charleston attack, law enforcement authorities worried about possible retaliation or revenge attacks. Samson’s note suggests a possible motive for his violent attack against white men and women worshipping at church.

A review of Samson’s Facebook account also revealed sympathies, interest and possible ties to black nationalist groups, such as the New Black Panther Party and the Nation of Islam. Samson’s Facebook photo page included a picture of the raised fist featuring the eye of Horus (e.g. Egyptology) which is a well-known black power symbol. Samson also posted images of armed New Black Panther members and the Anonymous hacking group. Most Continue reading

This stuff sounds so orchestrated. They are doing all they can to divide the communities and have them fighting among themselves. If this event was real, it was a staged to get a certain effect, and this approach to dividing the masses has been going on for a long time.  Now we have Vegas. But they are not gonna call that a violent racist white man. No, he is mentally deranged drunk gambler.

they are attempting to pass laws to call out "black identity extremists" really? So now we have to be extreme to identify with being black? And this shooting falls right into the agenda, along with the anti-immigrant agenda, anit-gun agenda, more surveillance, feel scared of everything and everybody, in church and at play and on and on. We gotta stay focused and not let their scare tactics get to us. I'm just saying.
