“We kill the white men, we kill the white women, we kill the white children, we kill the white babies…. If they are white kill ’em all.” Those shocking words were part of a threatening, racist rant reportedly issued by a radical Islamist who has just been taken into custody in Florida after a month-long search.
Authorities say that 21-year-old Eric Sheppard was apprehended in Tampa on Thursday — an arrest warrant had been out for Sheppard since a gun was found in a backpack that belonged to the Valdosta State University student. It was at that university in Georgia where Sheppard was confronted last month by an Air Force veteran who took possession of a U.S. flag on which the man had been stomping as part of an anti-America protest.
As Western Journalism reported earlier this month, that protest led to a social media movement encouraging others to similarly desecrate the flag. The Twitter hashtag #EricSheppardChallenge attracted a number of protesters who supported the offensive gesture with words and pictures.
