ISIS has claimed responsibility for the the deadliest mass shooting in US history and says the gunman who slaughtered at least 50 innocent party-goers in an Orlando gay club was one of its fighters.
Shooter Omar Mateen, 29, from Port St. Lucie in Florida, opened fire at Pulse night club in the early hours of Sunday, killing at least 50 people and injuring 53 others.
This is the first time ISIS has claimed responsibility for an attack on US soil.
Shortly before the attack, Mateen, who was born in New York to Afghan parents, called 911 and pledged allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, law enforcement officials told NBC News.
The alliance between the PC postmodernists and the Muslims is presumably only held together by their mutual dislike of the rest of us (the moderns). It wouldn’t appear strategically clever for the Muslims to antagonize the PC crew like this, with an attack on their mascots du jur, but they don’t exactly have a reputation as being smart.
The background to the shooter:
However Mateen’s father, Mir Seddique, told NBC News the attack was ‘nothing to do with religion’ and said his son became angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami several months ago. …
Of the event that could have prompted the attack, his father told NBC News: ‘We were in Downtown Miami, Bayside, people were playing music. And he saw two men kissing each other in front of his wife and kid and he got very angry.
‘They were kissing each other and touching each other and he said, “Look at that. In front of my son they are doing that”. And then we were in the men’s bathroom and men were kissing each other.’ …
Mateen, a Muslim and father to a three-year-old son, was born in 1986 in New York and married Sitora Alisherzoda Yusufiy, who was born in Uzbekistan, in 2009. … The gunman was a security guard with a company called G4S. … He was a ‘known quantity’ to the FBI and was investigated twice before the mass shooting. The FBI said Mateen, who had no criminal history, was first interviewed in 2013 after he made ‘inflammatory remarks’ to a colleague. … the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms said that Mateen purchased two weapons legally within the last week.
The ex-wife of Orlando gunman Omar Mateen claims he beat her, according to a report. … At the start of their relationship, she told the Post, he was not particularly religious and was not violent. …
‘He was not a stable person,’ she told the Post. ‘He beat me. He would just come home and start beating me up because the laundry wasn’t finished or something like that.’ When her parents found out about the beatings just months after the wedding, they staged an intervention and rescued her from the home. …
The father of mass shooter Omar Matee n… is a strong supporter of the Afghan Taliban. Seddique Mateen is an Afghan man and also hosts the Durand Jirga Show on a channel called Payam-e-Afghan, which broadcasts from California. Dozens of videos are posted under his name on YouTube where he speaks on a range of political subjects in the Dari language.
Obama used the opportunity to call for gun control, Trump demanded he face up to reality, and Hillary just talked about herself:
President Obama furthered his gun control message on Sunday when addressing the massacre. “this was an act of terror and an act of hate,” Obama said, making no reference to ISIS or Islamic terror in his brief remarks. Obama called the shooting spree a reminder of how easy it is for someone to get a hold of a weapon that could kill people in a ‘school, or a house of worship, or a movie theater, or in a nightclub’. The president said that the shooting was ‘especially heartbreaking’ for Americans in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
Donald Trump tweeted: “Is President Obama going to finally mention the words radical Islamic terrorism? If he doesn’t he should resign in disgrace!”
Hillary Clinton wrote in both English and Spanish: ‘Woke up to hear the devastating news from FL. As we wait for more information, my thoughts are with those affected by this horrific act. -H.’
UPDATE: Co-worker: Omar Mateen homophobic, ‘unhinged’, by Anthony Westbury.
Gilroy, a former Fort Pierce police officer, said Mateen frequently made homophobic and racial comments. Gilroy said he complained to his employer several times but it did nothing because he was Muslim.
“I quit because everything he said was toxic,” Gilroy said Sunday, “and the company wouldn’t do anything. This guy was unhinged and unstable. He talked of killing people.”
A homegrown, second generation Muslim with a western upbringing and education. He escaped scrutiny because he was Muslim and no one wanted to appear “racist”. Oh the harm that PC does to us.
UPDATE: Worst Mass Shooting in U.S. History: Islamic Extremist Kills at Least 50 at Florida Homosexual Nightclub, by Julio Severo.
The attack happened against three significant homosexual symbols. June 2016 is the month that, by presidential decree, Barack Hussein Obama proclaimed as “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.”
The city of the attack, Orlando, is the home of the Disney World, an amusement park famed for advocating the gay ideology.
The most prominent homosexual nightclub in Orlando was attacked. Nightclubs are major meeting points for homosexuals.
Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on a congressional intelligence committee, noted that the shooting took place during the holy Islamic date of Ramadan, and that ISIS leaders have urged Muslims to attack during this time.
UPDATE: Imam Speaking in Orlando Said Gays Must Be Killed Out of ‘Compassion’. Sheikh Sekaleshfar:
The only way gays and lesbians can be forgiven is to die.
A Google search for Sheikh Sekaleshfar reveals he apparently also spoke in Australia in 2014, at a conference on organ transplantation in Islam, at the University of Western Sydney, and just last week he tweeted:
Inshallah I shall be speaking at Imam Husain Islamic Center (Earlwood, NSW 2206, sydney Australia) during the holy month of Ramadan. Lectures start from Tuesday night (7th June).
Funny how they keep imposing their culture on us.
UPDATE: Malcolm Turnbull does not mention Islam, just gun control, just like Obama. This is a tell of the PC. Isn’t it amazing how they all sing out of the same hymnbook, coordinated by the mass media? Apparently clueless, avoiding reality. Perhaps they think that by not talking about unpleasant reality it will go away. Has the Enlightenment and the rational revolution been reversed by the post-moderns, or is it just a cynical PR strategy?
UPDATE: Bill Shorten delivers much the same message. Tweedle-dum, Tweedle-dee.
Prediction: In the weeks to come, the PC and the media will spin and white wash this, kicking up a cloud of irrelevant distractions. But in the final analysis another Muslim has killed a bunch of non-Muslims, filling a pattern strongly in play since the sixth century — a simple truth the PC will vigorously deny and avoid: “sheer coincidence.”
Mateen … was killed by a SWAT team three hours after taking hostages at Pulse. Federal investigators said they were looking into reports that he recited Islamic prayers during the attack.
UPDATE: Voter data shows the shooter is a registered Democrat. Democrats need to purge themselves of gay hate, before they can be allowed back into the national conversation (just kidding, but you know what they’d say if positions were reversed).
UPDATE: A perspective on the gun-control angle from Florida resident Karl Denninger:
There are now 50 dead people, all in one place, who were targeted because of their lifestyle and who we all disarmed and turned into sitting ducks. We are all indirectly responsible for their deaths — not only for refusing to address Islamic terrorism as the act of war that it is but also for supporting, allowing and maintaining blatantly unconstitutional laws at both state and federal levels that outrageously demand that people engaged in ordinary and peaceful conduct as they go about their daily lives be rendered defenseless when, not if, the very people who are coddled with politically correct crap decide to commit mass murder.
Naturally the PC celebrities are falling over each other in the rush to signal more PC virtue than the others: Celebrities Call for Gun Control, Rip Donald Trump After Orlando Nightclub Terror.
