UPDATE: Eyewitness inside the night club says there was a guy trying to hold the exit doors closed to prevent people from escaping. This is yet to be corroborated.
Those of us who choose not to let our daughters, wives or girlfriends share a bathroom or locker room with some 50 year old hairy guy in a wig named Chuckina are called intolerant, haters and bigots. According to the left, we are the worst of the worst human rights abusers on the planet.
Of course these ignorant fools no nothing of real human rights abuses as they (as do we all) remain cloistered within the relative safety of our country’s borders. It’s easy to picket, bitch, moan, boycott and otherwise take a stand against evil conservatives when the threats to one’s safety is pure fabrication.
The courageous left knows full well that they can yell and scream all they like at the “intolerant” right, and we haters and bigots won’t lift a finger against them. No where on Earth is the LGBT crowd treated better than in America. There is no better place to be if you are homosexual or transgender or any other off-beat “questioning” person. We are the most tolerant.
As we are well aware – the most intolerant and hostile toward this lifestyle are Islamists.
Here in the U.S., we’ve just suffered the largest mass casualty shooting in our history, perpetrated by an Islamist, on the homosexual community, with 50 killed at least 53 injured at an Orlando nightclub which caters to the LGBT crowd.
It wasn’t some crazy Christian, distraught over genderless bathrooms, as the left surely would have hoped. It was a radical Islamist, as anyone with a brain could have guessed.
The police and news sources are still calling it an act of “domestic terrorism,” as if that means anything. The man, Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, from Fort Pierce Florida, was indeed an American citizen born to parents who came to America from Afghanistan. Not much is known of them yet.
Much like “domestic terrorism,” the fact that he is an American citizen is somehow supposed to be significant. Who cares if he is or isn’t? Only the left and Islam apologists, which are one in the same. I suppose that being a citizen may somehow deflect from the fact that he was Muslim nut-job.
He was also a registered Democrat. Is that just as significant?!
Of course the presidential candidates had to react as they took to Twitter. The fossil Bernie Sanders had the most priceless quote as he tweeted: “I believe that in this country, we should not be selling automatic weapons which are designed to kill people.”
Well Bernie, you are as dumb as you are old. It’s darn near impossible for a private citizen to purchase an automatic weapon – legally. And what else are “automatic weapons” designed to do?
Really, the fact that Mateen was a citizen or that this was “domestic terror,” or even that he was a democrat is irrelevant, as authorities attempt to find background and motive for the attack.
After researching and writing many articles on the subject, I can predict, without knowing anymore than what we all know now, what they will likely find. This guy was an adherent Muslim. He read and/or was taught the Quran and Hadith and attended a Mosque which preached 7th century Islamic principles, which teaches that all other religions and atheists are infidels which must be dealt with. In a majority of cases, one has to look no further than the Mosque the killer attended and some radical Cleric who preaches or has preached there to understand why he or she did what they did. Let’s not discount the parents and their lineage. Pamella Geller reports that the father was pro-Taliban.
And to add insult to injury (literally), Fox news reported that the FBI was aware of and had opened a file on him in 2013.
They interviewed him twice in 2013. In 2014, they interviewed Mateen for possible ties to the American al-Nusra fighter and suicide bomber, Moner Abusalha who blew himself in Syria in 2015. By sheer coincidence, the two attended the same Mosque – the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce.
Then, in 2015, Mateen once again came under FBI scrutiny for possible ties to Abu-Salha, who went to the Middle East, received his terror training and returned, specifically to Fort Pierce and Vero Florida, to recruit jihadist fighters.
Then there is Ramadan, which began on June 5th and ends July 5th. Is this a bad bit of timing that Gay Pride Month just happens to coincide with Ramadan? Maybe, but history shows there are always massive escalations of violence during this period. You may learn more about Ramadan by listening to the first segment of my Podcast.
Some say the violence stems from the fasting Muslims must undertake from dawn to dusk daily, which lead to increased crankiness. This is a fact, but several years ago, Maulana Noor Muhammad, a spokesman for the Islamic organization Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam which is based in Pakistan, stated that the prophet Muhammad undertook many battles during Ramadan. He said: “In such pious times, participate in jihad and continue the support to the Mujahideen.”
“Nowadays, infidel forces want to destroy Islam and the Koranic orders. The fight [against the infidels] is not the responsibility of Taliban and Arab mujahedeen alone; rather it is the responsibility of the entire Ummah [Muslim world],” Noor Muhammad added.
Mateen may turn out to be an angry Islamist loner, who just happened on a lark, to swear allegiance to ISIS, but law enforcement and intelligence agencies must now put all political correctness aside and do a honest investigation – no matter where it leads.
