Anybody see this connection between Alek Skarlatos and the Roseburg Massacre? Skarlatos said he was supposed to be present that day in Snyder Hall, the same building where Harper-Mercer carried out his massacre.
So two of the heroes from the Muslim Terrorist train attack are back in the news. Just a coincidence that two of them so far either had a brush with violence, or were stabbed seriously. Strange isn’t it that the topic is gun control with us getting few details of the happenings. So here are the two stories, with the full American Thinker piece worthy of a full read. Here we go:
Was last week’s massacre at Umpqua Community College in Oregon a failed attempt to assassinate a Christian American hero for thwarting a Muslim terrorist train attack this summer in France?
Islamic State (a.k.a. ISIS, ISIL, and Daesh) apparently claimed responsibility on Twitter for the killings Harper-Mercer carried out at Umpqua. The tweet states, “Again #Oregon #USA #WashingtonDC #IslamicState #ISIS #USA[,]” and displays a graphic with the words “Slay Americans” in front of an image of a man in the process of being beheaded.
There may simply be a series of unlikely coincidences at play, or there may be circumstantial evidence suggesting that anti-jihadist hero Alek Skarlatos was an intended target of Chris Harper-Mercer, who put several Christians to death in an Umpqua classroom on Thursday, Oct. 1 for being Christian.
As USA Today reports
In a taped interview with Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday, Skarlatos said he was supposed to be in the building where Thursday’s shooting took place.
“I had classes in Snyder Hall,” said Skarlatos. “It’s a fairly small community college, the town in general, everybody knows each other. So with that many deceased, I mean everybody’s going to know at least one person.” […]
“I would have been there today if I didn’t agree to do this show,” he said. “I had classes picked out and everything.”Read more: American Thinker
Then we have this:
France Train Hero Spencer Stone Stabbed, In ‘Serious Condition’
Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone, celebrated as a hero for helping to stop a terror attack on a French train over the summer, was stabbed and seriously wounded outside a bar in his hometown early Thursday in what police said was an alcohol-related brawl.
Stone, 23, was knifed repeatedly in the upper body but was expected to survive, authorities said. He was taken to UC Davis Medical Center.
A press conference from about the stabbing is scheduled for 4:15 p.m.. It will be streaming live at cbs13.com/raw.
“This incident is not related to terrorism in any way,” Deputy Police Chief Ken Bernard said. “We know it’s not related to what occurred in France months ago.”
(No question about it and let us not have even a thought on the matter.)
