Thoughts on Orlando

The largest mass shooting in United States history was reportedly triggered when one Omar Mateen, a Muslim, saw two men engaged in a PDA.    Given the long list of actions which enrage Muslims,  women in public without a face cover, women driving,  drinking alcohol, and eating pork, with our open borders policy, can any American ever feel safe?

From Leon H. Wolf, Red State [1]:

The Left Fears Muslims More than they Support the LGBT Community

What happened in the dead of the night last night in Orlando was a direct attack on the LGBT community. Given the way gay people are treated in the Muslim world, is there anyone who doesn’t believe that the attackers chose the Pulse nightclub specifically because it caters to the gay community?

Now imagine that instead of having been a Muslim, the shooter had been a Southern Baptist. Would any leftist on the earth have hesitated in even the slightest way to blame the “culture of hate” associated (in their own minds) with the Baptist religion

Dana Beyer, NBC [2]:

This event stands out because its target was the gay community, at Latin night at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub. The previous worst such event – a fire in a New Orleans gay club, the Upstairs Lounge that killed 32 back in 1973 – has been lost to memory. This event, the most horrific of all, is just the most recent episode of anti-LGBT violence. That is my takeaway – anti-LGBT violence is endemic in America.

Dana nee Wayne Beyer [3] claims anti-LGBT violence is endemic, yet only cites incidents of such violence in the past forty-three years.   On what planet did Dr. Beyer study medicine?   Advice to Dr. Beyer, your chosen life style is not my problem.

Media ignorance  exposed,  first Assault Rifle defined, Wikipedia [4]:

An assault rifle is a fully automatic selective-fire rifle that uses an intermediate cartridge and a detachable magazine.[1][2][3][4][5] Assault rifles were first used during World War II. Though Western nations were slow to accept the assault rifle concept after World War II, by the end of the 20th century they had become the standard weapon in most of the world’s armies, replacing battle rifles and sub-machine guns. Examples include the StG 44, AK-47 and the M16 rifle

Next from ABC News [5]:

The man suspected of killing at least 50 people at the gay nightclub in Orlando apparently used the kind of semiautomatic assault rifle that has become a weapon of choice among mass shooters.

He had a .223 caliber AR-type rifle and a Glock handgun on him at the time of the shooting early this morning, law enforcement sources told ABC News.

The idea a semi-automatic assault rifle is a complete non-sequitur

It is true, that the United States is a nation built on immigration.   However once upon a time, immigration used to followed by assimilation.    In contrast, Muslim immigrants have no desire to assimilate.   Rather they seek domination.

Addendum: Brevity is the soul of wit department, from Lucianne [6]:

Trump and Clinton and their very different
responses to the Orlando shootings

Hillary cautions us not to “fall into
the gun lobby’s trap.” Huh?

Why Obama Still Refuses to Name Radical Islam

He says it would inflame them….Speechless.

Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton feel safe demonizing the National Rifle Association and law abiding American gun owners because they both know the NRA and the vast majority of gun owners are civilized. Muslims not so much.
