[Ed. – They’re really crawling out of the woodwork this week. This one’s white and goes by “Umar Lee.” Antonio French is the alderman who made all the statesmanlike noises during the height of the Ferguson crisis.]
Agitator Umar Lee was arrested last night during the Ferguson protests.
Lee, who is a Muslim radical, wrote the following to a critic in 2010: “i could cut your neck with the sword of islam, and watch you squeal like a bitch like daniel pearl.”
Lee, who is also a supporter of Bashar Assad, is raising money to go to Syria.
Despite — or perhaps because of — Lee’s radical views, Alderman Antonio French tweeted out his support.
[Ed. – There’s also a picture of Lee with Representative Keith Ellison (D-MI).]
