SHOCK: No. Carolina Man Who Calls Self ‘Militant Atheist’ Murders Three Muslim Students Over Parking Space

Despite claims that this crime was all about “anti-Muslim sentiment,” a 46-year-old man who calls himself a “militant atheist” who shot to death three Muslim students in an apartment near the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus was upset over a parking dispute, not Islam.

As Weasel Zippers notes, “In Hicks’ Facebook, he refers to himself as a ‘militant atheist’ and posts related to atheism are the majority on his Facebook. His avatar is “Atheists for Equality”, and he has several posts dedicated to gay rights. He was recently married to his wife, but only a couple of posts are related to that. He liked ‘Forward Progressives’ as well as an anti-‘Teabaggers’ group. He was a fan of Richard Dawkins and Neil De Grasse Tyson.”

Now police say the man was angry over parking, not Islam.

The Chapel Hill Police Department said Wednesday morning that initial indications suggested that the issue stemmed from a parking altercation.

“Our preliminary investigation indicates that the crime was motivated by an ongoing neighbor dispute over parking,” the department said in a statement. “Hicks is cooperating with investigators and more information may be released at a later time.”

And lefties and Muslims were trying to drum this crime up as a “racist” attack on Muslims. In fact, it has nothing at all to do with the victims’ religion… unless the fact that they had a religion at all contributed to this atheist’s hate for them.

In any case, strictly speaking it is not an “anti-Muslim” incident.
