Cheers i n s i d e t h e f i r s t a m e n d m e n t p propaganda works. Consider Mohammad Abdu Azeez the Young Man who shot and killed five service members in Chattanooga Tennessee this month. According to Fri reports Abdu Azeez was inspired to martyrdom through listening to the hate filled sermons of Anwar Al Aflaki the Al Zaeda Recruiter killed by an american drone strike in 2011. Or consider Dylann roof the suspect in the murder of nine african american churchgoers in Charleston South Carolina earlier this summer. From what we know at this stage in the investigation roof was influenced by the online racist ideology of the Council of conservative citizens a White supremacist group that vilified african americans.
