Chris Harper Mercer and the Islamic State Flag

Hat tip Creeping Sharia, Bare Naked Islam and Jihad Watch

Did the Oregon killer purchase an ISIS flag online?

It has been pretty well-established that ISIS has claimed credit for the shooting rampage in Oregon by Chris Harper Mercer.

(Note: Jihad Watch is not running the story about Harper-Mercer buying an ISIS flag.)

That does not prove that Harper Mercer took his marching orders from ISIS. Nor does it prove that he was a Muslim, which I am convinced he was not. Yet now comes this latest piece of information from Bare Naked Islam, which is cross-posted by Creeping Sharia. It is running on several other blogs though I can find nothing about it in the mainstream media (which might be a story in itself).

If accurate, this would suggest that Harper Mercer was inspired by ISIS. (He does have links to jihadist images on his My Space site.) It will be interesting to see if the msm picks up on this. In the meantime, I am treating it with caution.

Psychopaths don't require religious faith to be inspired by other psychopaths. Hey, ISIS is getting away with murder. That's what he admired.
