Imam Accused of Being Drunk by City of Keene Bureaucrat!

Will Coley, Imam of the soon-to-open MALIC Center in Keene, NH recently made the mistake of asking permission to put up a sign for the mosque he’s opening in Keene. Realizing that asking for permission only gives bureaucrats reasons to create hoops to jump and fees to pay, Will went in to inform them he intends to move ahead with or without their permission slip, per the freedom of speech and religion.

During the interaction one particularly rude bureaucrat insults me and then issues an even bigger insult to Will, as a Muslim. She actually asserts that he smells of alcohol, a ridiculous claim, given it’s been over a decade since he’s drank any. Here’s the full video of his interactions with authoritarian bureaucrats on Thursday afternoon:

With the story already hitting the one of the Sentinel’s front pages yesterday, it’s already looking like the people calling themselves the “City of Keene” are going to be an international laughingstock again! With such insulting and threatening behavior not long after suffering defeat after defeat, all the way to the NH Supreme Court in the Robin Hood case where they tried and failed to crush the free speech of activists who have rescued thousands of motorists from parking tickets.

  1. Going to city hall with Cameras and Ian is a mistake. I think Ian knew that.He should have refused. THIS IS MY VIEW AND IM STICKING WITH IT!

  2. What was edited out a couple times, around ten minutes in? We don’t know. Is it unflattering to the visitors of city hall? We don’t know…lol. It’s edited though. ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s not transparency. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. ^That’s not transparency Ian. It is transparent that you are not being transparent! We all see it Ian, you faker. Maybe that’s the part where Ian calls her a nasty name,hat pales in comparison to the ‘drinking” remark! WE DON’T KNOW. It’s called honesty,Freeman

  4. ok maybe im wrong about the editing(though i dont know)it could just be switching video from the two cams being fused together, but i do remember that time Ian edited out negative stuff rich paul said so..),

  5. ok,i just want to say; i know im posting alot: i dont think the edits were editing out anything unfavorable to the city hall visitors. Though, i do know unfavorable stuff has been edited out in past FK videos . I don’t think its happened a huge amount but it’s happened.

  6. They have the unedited feed available.

  7. It looks like Ian Bernard has screwed up again. It’s a family dwelling not commercial property like you said. Your so called “church” was never recognized by the city as a church. It’s your own fault you didn’t check all this out. If people are living next door, they don’t want a big sign blocking their views. You call this a first amendment problem when a “sign” pointing to your family dwelling isn’t anything but an eyesore to your neighbors.

    I have never heard of a muslim mosque defying the city laws and then make threats about retaliation. You are nothing more than a freekeener.

    By the way, your clothes are not proper attire for muslims.

  8. You idiots are still at it? Congrats I guess

  9. I can’t believe she said that. These people never cease to amaze me.

    Not to mention, she chose the *one* human in Cheshire County that *doesn’t drink*, to say that to. Unreal, these shitbags. Wow. They’re parasitic and awful in every way.

  10. Transitnomade, Where? the link there and on youtube is the same vid

  11. Hmmmmmmm the most renowned contemporary scholar of islam says there is no such thing as “muslim attire” outside of guarding one’s modesty.

    Most muslims don’t fight back due to fear of targeting or deportation. Seems you don’t know how to react to a muslim who has no such fear.

  12. The City of Keene never recognized the Church of the Free Load as an actual church. Instead, Ian managed to raise money to get his dumpy house renovated for free, under the guise of a mosque. Now, the Imam of said mosque is moving into a single family house that was never zoned as anything other than a single family house, and he’s threatening the city for refusing to allow him to put up a big sign on the property of this single family house.

    Coley threatens the city and you think the city is going to be an international laughingstock?

  13. The city is already an international laughing stock. Keene has a history of racism and bigotry and it’s a reputation that many in the city don’t like and have tried to rid itself of (and its failing). There was a candlelight vigil in reaction to Cantwell’s hatred. There was a hugely negative racist reaction to some black doctor a long time ago in what is supposedly a part of the country that isn’t racist and full of bigots and is supposedly pro-freedom. There are already court precedents on this matter generated from parts of the country that are well known to be hostile to freedom and religious diversity and people of color. The city’s position just goes to demonstrate Cantwell’s isn’t alone here and all you sick f’cs are just part of one big hate group.

  14. Fuck off, Joe, you nigger

  15. @Jumping Jacks

    Say Jacks, maybe you could take your busybodying to the next level by reporting Mr. Coley to the nearest Sharia patrol? What do you say, Jacks? Are you game for that?

  16. i been in keene for forever… there hasnt been much racism ive seen or heard of..cantwell isnt keene …can anyone blow into town yell racist things and ..people say “thats keene” lol… i had a gf who was black ,she told me she didnt encounter it much,

  17. Change of use, look it up guys. I can’t believe you guys think you can open a mosque without getting a permit, ZBA approval, Planning Board approval, city inspections, etc. like the rest of us. I’m sure Will has good intentions, but what ever made him think he can open a mosque in a neighborhood without getting a permit? I wonder how much electrical and structural work they did without getting a building permit, totally stupid. And of course there’s Ian, using Will to get that property made into a mosque so he can enjoy the tax benefits. You guys are a bunch of idiots.

  18. I’m pretty sure the Romans never recognized Jesus as having an “official church”, either.

  19. Does anyone know the parcel number of the lot they are trying to use?

  20. Funny if you search that property address it shows sold on at least 3 websites and EACH site says the property is commercial..

  21. New Hampshire needs a mosque like Houston needs a flood. “Houses of worship” are businesses, tax them like any business. STILL, the bureaucrats need to be purged. They ave NO purpose.

  22. Another armchair lawyer who doesn’t understand Supreme Court Opinions – Reed v. Town of Gilbert, 135 S.Ct. 2218 (2o15) only held that “content-based” regulations face strict scrutiny but it does not hold that religious organizations need not follow local ordinances or regulations concerning signs or usage. The ordinances and regulations only need to be content-neutral (meaning that it applies irrespective of the content-religious or otherwise). In fact, Justice Thomas acknowledges that in his majority opinion stating “The Town has ample content-neutral options available to resolve problems with safety and aesthetics. For example, its current Code regulates many aspects of signs that have nothing to do with a sign’s message: size, building materials, lighting, moving parts, and portability. See, e.g., ยง4.402(R).” id at 2232.

    As far as a civil rights violation, he is way off base and should consult a knowledgeable attorney cause he doesn’t understand .

  23. Just the usual weirdo troublemaker targeting Keene because they think the people of Keene agree with their idiocracy

  24. i will say that lady seems to be good at looking at people like that are jerks, and somehow i dont think it is only reserved for these visitors. I think it is because people dont like their jobs and refuse to leave those jobs, instead opting to look at people like they are jerks. Maybe someone new wouldnt be so unhappy as she is.
    Maybe its because the customers aka the tax payers come in unhappy fairly often, unhappy and dissatisfied. It makes sense that a person dealing with unhappy dissatisfied people all day would look at people like they are jerks which makes the tax payer even more unhappy and dissatisfied because , the customer is also supposedly;theoretically the boss. BUT government jobs seem to be the kind of jobs the emplotees just stick with. So we are stuck with government employees looking at us like we are jerks.. Someone correct me please

  25. I bet you get that look a lot, eh Creepy Crawford?

  26. only from you pedophilebear ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. The chic (old lady ,gray hair ) that comes out behind the guy Ian is talking to is a predator who takes advantage of alcoholics and mentally ill ! Tom Mullins (city attorneys) is a non constitution attorney who is a communist and i went to look at a property they had for rent (city) and no one brung a key ? Is was more like a communist briefing than business deal ! Sick little place it is ! Here from kc till March and know the law !

  28. Jumping Jacks, your posts here are eyesores, so what? One person’s eyesore is another person’s community service. So your point of view, or a neighbor’s, on the sign for a mosque, is just as valid as my view of your posts. Less, actually, because the mosque isn’t your property, whereas this website is owned by people who think you are full of it, but are nice enough to let you post anyway.

  29. Also, great point Rich Paul!
