Oh, the irony! OSU attacker publicly decried media for portraying negative ‘picture’ of Muslims

Ohio State University attacker Abdul Razak Ali Artan, an 18-year-old Somali-born Muslim who came to the United States as a ‘refugee’ from Pakistan in 2014, actually once publicly decried the media’s portrayed (to his view) negative “picture” of Muslims.

And then, in a stunning display of irony, this Muslim proceeded to personally validate every negative image out there, and more.

Just a few months ago, Artan was profiled in OSU’s student newspaper, The Lantern.

“I’m new here,” Artan said. “This is my first day. This place is huge, and I don’t even know where to pray. I wanted to pray in the open, but I was kind of scared with everything going on in the media. I’m a Muslim, it’s not what the media portrays me to be. If people look at me, a Muslim praying, I don’t know what they’re going to think, what’s going to happen.”

“But, I don’t blame them,” the future jihadist continued. “It’s the media that puts that picture in their heads so they’re going to have it and it, it’s going to make them feel uncomfortable. I was kind of scared right now. But I just did it. I relied on God. I went over to the corner and just prayed.”
