Letter to the Editor: Mosque protester responds

Mosque protester responds

My name is Richard Roy Blake. I am “the protester” who was featured in Liam Adams’ article entitled “Unity Outlasts Division at Masjid Ihklas Amidst Years of Protests.” I write to address the key omissions from and false information contained in that article concerning me, not only to defend my reputation, but on behalf of future generations who face a clever totalitarian enemy.

Owing to this paper’s 250-word limit on letters to the editor, I am only able to address the most important points.

First, the article failed to report that I and my family had been subjected to threats from associates of the mosque. Nor did the article mention any of the prior reports of alleged connections between Denver Islamic leaders and the terrorist attacks of 9/11 (simply Google: al-Turki Denver 9/11). As I said, these are only the most glaring omissions from Mr. Adams’ article that would have presented my “protests” in the proper context, but even then the article would still be problematic. The most offensive is the innuendo that I am "threatening" the mosque by sending a demand letter which is made necessary by Colorado’s rules of civil procedure.

Richard Roy Blake, Thornton
