DC Uber Driver Murder: American Pakistani Organization Wants Black Girls Charged with a Hate Crime

Here is an update to my post about the horrific carjacking and murder case involving a Pakistani Uber driver killed when two black teens attempted to steal his car.

DC: Black Teens Charged in Death of Muslim Uber Driver

I asked in my post—where is CAIR?

You know they would be on it long before now if white punks had committed the horrible murder.

Is it because they have thrown in with Black Lives Matter and its anti-police campaign that they dare not speak out against black crime?

CAIR’s headquarters in Southeast Washington, DC is within a mile of where the carjacking and murder occurred.

 

Don’t they get it that fewer police means more crime against vulnerable people of all races and creeds?

Or, are they pulling their punches afraid of getting on the wrong side of Mayor Bowser?

I just checked again to see if CAIR national, located not far from the scene of Mohammad Anwar’s death, had said a word and I am not seeing it.

Check out their press releases.

Among other things they are busy trying to get rid of Maryland’s ‘racist’ state song.

But a Pakistani American organization isn’t shy about demanding a “hate crime” charge in the case.

And, meanwhile Fox News reports that the coverage of the murder by the mainstream media is uneven to say the least.

From CBS News:

Teen girls charged with carjacking and murder in death of UberEats driver in Washington, D.C.

After reporting that the girls have been charged with felony murder, the report goes on to say ….

On March 25, one day after the suspects’ first court appearance, the American Pakistani Public Affairs Committee called on police to investigate the death as a hate crime.

In a statement posted on Twitter, the organization said Anwar’s “death is a devastating loss to his family and community and our hearts go out to all who are mourning his loss.”

“This unspeakable act is another tragic example of the hatred and violence that Muslim Americans regularly endure,” the committee said. “We demand authorities investigate this incident as a hate crime and prosecute the alleged assailants to the fullest extent of the law.”

“As our nation reckons with rising incidents of hate and violence directed toward minority communities, APPAC stands in solidarity with all who fall victim to the senseless consequences of Islamophobia, racism, xenophobia, religious prejudice and oppression,” the statement continued.

Of course we can’t know what these evil girls were thinking when they left home with a taser to try and steal a car, but I will bet a million bucks that they wouldn’t have done this to a black Uber driver.

I’m not defending them, but surely they didn’t know the man was a Muslim.

However, they likely knew he was an immigrant of some sort, and not black.

It is all one more example of the uneven application of standards of right and wrong (no matter who the victims and who the perpetrators are) in the Left’s ever-expanding game of racial politics.

And, as they keep it up, and twist themselves into knots trying to figure out what reaction to take depending on skin color politics, it makes for a wonderful opportunity to laugh at their hypocrisy.

DC: Black Teens Charged in Death of Muslim Uber Driver

I figure this is news you have already seen, but just now as I searched around I see that it took days for the disgusting story to spread.  Why?

My guess is that it doesn’t fit the mainstream media’s narrative when members of one minority group, in this case Blacks (girls), kill a member of another ‘oppressed’ group, a Muslim man.

And, it all goes down in Mayor Muriel Bowser’s and Black Lives Matter capital city where black lives matter and others not so much!

DC Mayor Bowser overlooking her handiwork: Black Lives Matter Plaza

 

It sure is a good thing we have the UK Daily Mail because as I began my reading this morning, it was challenging to find a succinct account of what happened almost a week ago.

Uber driver Mohammad Anwar

Anwar died last Tuesday when he was ejected from his Honda Accord after two teenage girls allegedly tasered him and tried to steal his car.

That was bad enough but compounding the horrible event, Bowser attempted to protect the image of Washington DC’s black community by initially lecturing drivers to be more careful about keeping their cars out of the hands of thieves.

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser DELETES ‘tone deaf’ tweet about avoiding auto theft that she posted after days of silence over carjacking death of UberEats driver

Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser has deleted her ‘tone deaf’ tweet advising people on how to prevent auto theft after days of silence about UberEats driver killed in a carjacking in the city.

Bowser’s official Twitter account posted a Metropolitan Police Department video about preventing car thefts on Sunday with the caption: ‘Auto theft is a crime of opportunity. Follow these steps to reduce the risk of your vehicle becoming a target. Remember the motto, #ProtectYourAuto.’

The tweet drew outrage from critics who called it tone deaf in light of the death of 66-year-old Mohammad Anwar. Anwar died last Tuesday when he was ejected from his Honda Accord after two teenage girls allegedly tasered him and tried to steal his car.

The tweet was deleted late Sunday.

[….]

There are National Guard troops all over DC and here they grab the girls at the scene. Orange hoodie girl wanted to get her phone out of the car she had just wrecked.

The Daily Mail continues…..

The backlash over Bowser’s tweet followed graphic new video shared on social media has shown the events leading up to Anwar’s tragic death as well as the moment the suspects attempt to run away as he lay motionless on the sidewalk.

A father-of-three from Springfield, Virginia, Anwar was making deliveries for UberEats when the two teens, aged 13 and 15, approached his car and tasered him in an attempt to steal the vehicle.

[….]

A judge concluded that the two teen girls pose a threat to the community and are a potential flight risk, and ordered them detained pending their next court appearance scheduled for March 31.

There is much more including more photos and the sickening video.

Where is CAIR?

 

CAIR headquarters in Washington not far from the scene of the crime.

 

My first thought was: so what is CAIR saying since they have been sucking up to BLM since at least last June?  Have they blasted the mayor? Called for Bowser’s resignation? Called for more police protection?

Have they called it a hate crime, or an anti-immigrant xenophobic crime?

You can bet if the teens were white you would be hearing that cry already.

Have they said “all live matter?”

If anyone sees a statement from CAIR, let me know!

 

Maryland CAIR Hissy-Fit: Will BLM Graffiti “Hate Crime” be Another Hoax?

It was earlier this month when we saw that the destruction of a Black Lives Matter sign at a church in Missouri turned out to have been the work of— wait for it—a black man.

Sorry move along, nothing to see!  No White supremacists lurking there.

Missouri Hate Crime? Church’s BLM Banner Ripped and Windows Broken

Let’s see what happens with this latest gasp! shocker.  In the increasingly diverse Howard County, Maryland someone had the audacity to paint over the world BLACK on a Black Lives Matter sign at a Middle School.

***Update*** A reader found a photo of the defaced sign!

The “disturbing crime” left only the words LIVES MATTER, a racist phrase if there ever was one!

Of course my first question is why is there a BLM sign at any public school?

And, that brings me back to my post of a couple of days ago when I wondered out loud why anyone is sending their kids back into public school when parents have just been given the opportunity to make the break!

Candace Owens: Get your kids out of public schools!

And this one from a week ago:

Why Does Any Conservative Want their Kids in Public Schools?

Here is CAIR’s press release as the hunt intensifies for those wily White supremacists!

CAIR Condemns Racist Graffiti at Md. School, Welcomes Hate Crime Probe

(BALTIMORE, MD, 3/16/21) – The Maryland office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today welcomed a hate crime investigation into racist graffiti reportedly discovered at Glenwood Middle School in Howard County, Md.The incident took place Saturday when the word “Black” in a Black Lives Matter marquee was spray-painted over.

[….]

CAIR’s Director in Maryland Zainab Chaudry.

Howard County Public Schools’ Superintendent Michael Martirano issued a statement condemning the incident and confirming that the graffiti was quickly removed. He added that the incident was being investigated by police as a hate crime. It read in part: “We believe the lives of our black and brown students and staff should not be diminished and devalued in this way. We reiterate our support for the fact that Black lives matter.”

“As schools resume in-person instruction after a long and difficult year, students deserve to know that they will be returning to a safe, inclusive learning environment in which hate won’t be tolerated,” said CAIR’s Director in Maryland Zainab Chaudry. “We look forward to learning the outcome of the investigation, and appropriate consequences for the perpetrators of this disturbing crime.”

Taking a trip down Memory Lane…

Back in 2013, several Maryland conservative Tea Party activists, me included, put on a conference in Annapolis and our featured speaker was the legendary Pamela Geller.

Of course CAIR busied itself trying to kill our gathering and our FREE Speech by intimidating the hotel where we had a contract. Fortunately the hotel stood firm and our conference went on.

They also attempted to intimidate other speakers planning to speak at the event.

I wrote about it here at my blog Potomac Tea Party Report, which I am delighted to see is still there! Chaudry had just appeared on the scene at that time.

CAIR-MD intimidating speakers at MD CAN (again!); boosts registrations!

Moratorium Demand: Muslim Activist Group Wants Biden to Ban Facial Recognition Technology

They claim it unfairly targets marginalized and over-surveilled groups in America—-like those patriots gathered to peacefully protest outside of the US Capitol on January 6th.

LOL! No, they aren’t defending patriots and so-called white nationalists. But, it sure would be a fun exercise if one of the Southern Poverty Law Centers latest “hate groups” contacted them and asked to be added to their coalition.

From CAIR:

CAIR-Washington, Civil Rights Groups Call on Biden to Halt Federal Use of Facial Recognition Technology

Brianna Auffray, Esq., is the Legal and Policy Manager at CAIR Washington, where she uses legal and grassroots advocacy solutions to represent discriminated individuals. https://crosscut.com/author/brianna-auffray

(SEATTLE, WA, 2/17/21) – The Washington state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Washington) today joined a coalition of more than 40 organizations calling on President Biden to take executive action imposing a federal moratorium on the use of facial recognition technology.

The letter, sent by CAIR-Washington, the ACLU, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Amnesty International, among others, urges the Biden administration to take three critical steps addressing the use of facial recognition technology by the government.

Those steps include:

~placing a moratorium on all federal government use of facial recognition technology and other forms of biometric technology; [by the way, biometric technology is what the Leftie refugee contractors claim is keeping us safe from refugee fraud—ed]

~preventing state and local governments from using federal funds to purchase or access the technology;

~supporting legislation that would codify into law the federal moratorium and place additional limitations on federal funding of the technology.

Read the full letter is here: https://www.aclu.org/letter/coalition-letter-president-biden-use-facial-recognition-technology

“The use of face surveillance gives the government massively-enhanced powers to identify, locate, and track individuals based on images of their faces,” said Brianna Auffray, Legal and Policy Manager at CAIR-Washington.

“Even if this technology is perfectly accurate—which it is not—the threat of this surveillance has an outsized impact on historically over-surveilled communities.” [Yeh! Like those white nationalists and America First patriots!—ed]

This is a Big Election For CAIR and Muslims Vote

They want to display their voting power as their population continues to expand….

No big revelations here.  I just wanted you to see what CAIR is doing and saying about the November election where they are pulling out all the stops to get Muslims to the polls.

CAIR estimates there are well over 1 million registered American Muslim voters in the United States, with large communities residing in key swing states. A recent CAIR survey indicates that 89% of registered Muslim voters intend to vote in the November 3rd General Election. 

Muslims Vote has a very handy Voter Guide.  If you are not sure about the rules in your state, you can check their guide for when voter registration ends and when and where you can vote in person.

Muslims Vote and CAIR are pushing their people to vote by mail, however ballots by mail must be filled out properly and mailed properly with lots of opportunities for mistakes that could disqualify the ballot.

By the way, that is why you should vote in person either on election day or at an early voting location where your vote is being recorded at an official election site.
