So What Is This Post About?

Is it about a possible work accident in Minneapolis?

Is it about Veeshir linking NBC voluntarily and actually praising them for providing information?

Is it about Veeshir noting media bias?

There was an explosion in a building in Minneapolis that started a very fierce fire that drove firefighters back so fighting it was especially difficult with people jumping out the windows.

The NBC link above has this

The three-story building on Cedar Ave. South housed a mosque, a halal market and 10 apartments.


This link has this quote

The first floor is a grocery store, with 10 apartments occupying the second and third floors

No mention of halal grocery or mosque

This link has this quote

The three-story building, 516 Cedar Avenue, houses a grocery and several apartments


Again, a little less than fully informational.

Another link, a little more info and what made me start looking.

The first floor contained a business; above it were 10 residential units, nine of which “would have been occupied at the time,” he said….

A mosque is located near the building. It was not immediately known whether it suffered damage.


No, the mosque is not nearby, it’s in the building and the “business” is a halal market.

USA Today

The main floor of the structure houses the Otanga Grocery, with the upper two floors consisting of apartments.


Again, no mosque.

Et tu Fox? They just call it an apartment building.

The local Fox affiliate says it has a mosque and a grocery.

Now, I’m not saying they should be screaming “Terrorists!!!!!!!!!!”, but…

They claim to be listing what’s in the building but most don’t even mention the mosque with CNN lying and saying it’s “near”.

That they’re hiding certain facts makes me think they are thinking about how there’s a large Somali population in the area who are pretty fundamental and who keep turning up as terrorists in east Africa and further thinking that this looks like a work accident but are afraid to mention it because of the Backlash Against The Muslims That Always Seems To Hit The Jews. 

Hate crimes motivated by religious bias accounted for 1,166 offenses reported by law enforcement. A breakdown of the bias motivation of religious-biased offenses showed:

  • 59.7 percent were anti-Jewish.

  • 12.8 percent were anti-Islamic….
