Citizens With AR-15s Surround Texas Mosque… Send Unmistakable Message to Muslims [VIDEO]
A group calling itself the Bureau on American-Islamic Relations, or BAIR, gathered outside an Irving, Texas, mosque on Saturday, armed with AR-15s and claiming they were protesting “the Islamization of America” and the continued influx of Syrian refugees in the face of brutal Islamic terrorism.
According to KDFW-TV, the group picketing outside the Islamic Center of Irving numbered about 15. One carried a placard that said “Solution to Islamic terrorism,” with an arrow pointing to another protester — an armed man in fatigues.
he protests took place with heavy police presence, including a SWAT team on standby. However, no incidents were reported.
“We are here protesting Syrian refugees coming to America, protesting the Islamization of America,” said David Wright, BAIR spokesman.
“I think the popular belief is, people are scared. They’re scared to say anything about it. They’re scared to come out to a place like this and stand in front of a mosque and protest Islam.”
