The suspect who drove his car into two police offices at the Capitol and rammed his car into a barrier has now been identified, according to the NY Post:
The driver who killed a US Capitol cop before he was gunned down by police is a Nation of Islam devotee from Indiana, according to reports and his social media.
Noah Green, 25, who may have been living in Virginia, described himself as a “Follower of Farrakhan” on his Facebook page, in reference to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Green allegedly slammed into a fence outside the US Capitol just after 1 p.m. Friday and struck two officers before crashing into a barricade.
Green allegedly got out of the car with a knife and lunged at an officer before being fatally shot, reports say.
One of the officers, whose name has not been released, died at the hospital. The other officer is being treated at an area hospital.
Well there you go. Islam, again.
Except, maybe, our homemade Farrakhan version. I say ‘maybe’ because we don’t know much about him yet. He could have also taken a liking to ISIS for all we know.
Notice that the article points out that Green ‘lunged’ at the officer with his knife. He was clearly trying to kill cops, whatever his motive, which police haven’t said yet. And according to Heavy, his Facebook page has already been taken down.
We’ll bring you more on this when we get it…
UPDATE: AG on Twitter noted that Green’s Facebook page was almost completely dedicated to promoting Louis Farrakhan:
His Facebook (now locked) is almost completely dedicated to promoting Louis Farrakhan.
I suspect this won't be in the news for long, but at some point we need to have a conversation about the problem with the mainstreaming of Farrakhan and his bigotry. https://t.co/vq0yuYyjqg

To which Stephen Miller (redsteeze) asks “So will Farrakhan be getting banned from Twitter?” Great point. They did it to Trump. Will they do it to Farrakhan?
