There are times when irony isn’t funny. This is one of them.
I read this at FNC:
Orlando gunman made multiple visits to nightclub he attacked, reports say
Omar Mateen made multiple visits to Orlando’s Pulse nightclub in the weeks before he killed 49 people there early Sunday, according to several reports quoting regular patrons.
One man also said that he recognized Mateen from an app used to arrange dates and hookups for gay men, adding a new layer of complexity to the investigation of the worst mass shooting in modern American history.
The Orlando Sentinel cited four Pulse regulars who said they had seen the 29-year-old Mateen there before.
“Sometimes he would go over in the corner and sit and drink by himself, and other times he would get so drunk he was loud and belligerent,” said Ty Smith, who claimed to have seen the gunman at Pulse at least a dozen times.
“We didn’t really talk to him a lot, but I remember him saying things about his dad at times,” Smith added. “He told us he had a wife and child.”
Smith’s husband, Chris Callen, told the Canadian Press that Mateen had been to Pulse regularly for “at least three years.”
Jim Van Horn, 71, told the Associated Press he was a frequent patron at Pulse and said another “regular” there was Mateen.
“He was trying to pick up people. Men,” Van Horn said late Monday outside the Parliament House, another gay club.
Read the rest there.
What have we been hearing for the last couple days?
There is a tension in the MSM between this being an Islamic terror attack and being an “anti-‘gay’ hate crime”. Some seem to want to diminish the terror aspect and emphasis the “anti-‘gay’ hate angle.
Now it seems that this was Islamist terror and a “gay” v “gay” crime, a barbaric mass murder perpetrated by a registered Democrat American citizen homosexual Islamic terrorist. If he, apparently a Muslim homosexual, killed the homosexuals in the homosexual club that he frequented because he hated homosexuals, then this is pretty complicated and he was pretty screwed up. Whatever else it is, it isn’t a simple case of a homosexual hater killing homosexuals because they are homosexuals. It’s more than that.
Let’s see what the MSM does about this.
On another point…
This morning I awoke to the news that, in France, an Islamic terrorist murdered a cop, in front of his little son, and he streamed it live. The police officer’s wife was also murdered. The terrorist animal killed the cop with a knife… not a gun… a knife. The murderer pledged allegiance to ISIS three weeks ago and did so also during the steamed attack. The boy survived. HERE
So much for French cuisine: all knives should be banned, right?
If terrorists want to kill you, they will use whatever is to hand, a knife, a pressure cooker, a Ford F-150, whatever.
That brings me to another point.
Less-than bright people in the MSM talk about the evil “assault weapon” used in the Orlando terror murders. Some say it was an “automatic assault weapon”.
In one recording recovered from a victim’s phone you clearly hear the weapon being fired. It wasn’t automatic fire. You can’t tell if that was the handgun or the rifle.
The barbaric terrorist wacko had in the week prior purchased an AR-15. If he bought an Ar-15 is wasn’t an automatic and it wasn’t an “assault weapon”. “Assault weapon” or rifle is a phrase brilliantly applied to just about any rifle colored black by haters of the 2nd Amendment to distort the public’s understanding of rifles.
An “assault rifle” (the term might go back to WWII) can more accurately be applied to rifles that have a selective fire option, that is, they can be set to fire single shots with a single squeeze of the trigger, or multiple shots with a single squeeze. An AR-15, unless it is subjected to significant modification, is not capable of selective fire. An AR-15 gives you one shot per trigger pull. An AR-15 is a “semi-automatic” long gun, or rifle, or carbine. It is semi-automatic in that when you shoot a round, the case is extracted and ejected and, if there are still rounds in the magazine, another round is chambered and the mechanism is reset so that you can continue to fire with another squeeze of the trigger. If you can squeeze the trigger quickly, you can fire quickly. When you listen to the talking-heads, pay attention to the terms they use. I think that some of the anti-2nd Amendment crowd get the difference, but they used the wrong terms to confuse and to warp. Others just don’t know what they are talking about.
So… in the MSM coverage of the Orlando terror attack pay attention to the language that people use.
And let’s see if anything changes in the reportage or from, especially liberals and the homosexualist crowd, now that we know that the terrorist perp was himself often at the club seeking homosexual sex. Will they still talk about “anti-gay hate”?
I am switching on the moderation queue for this. Think before attempting the comment, please. Also, I have some travel today, so I’ll not be checking the queue too often.
Finally… when you enter a business or any other place, make sure you know where the exits are and, having examined your conscience thoroughly…
GO TO CONFESSION.
A thought. It is assumed that he was “crazy”. Maybe so, depending on your definition. However, that doesn’t mean that he was stupid or that he didn’t know exactly what he was doing. Maybe he wasn’t crazy. Maybe he was just evil. Maybe he was possessed.
