Whitewashing Islam from terror attack was second atrocity in Orlando

David MenziesMission Specialist

I’ve now come to the conclusion that two separate atrocities occurred when Omar Mateen committed mass-murder at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub.

The first was of course the cold-blooded murder of 49 innocent people and 53 injured.

But the second is how law enforcement, politicians, and the majority of media have gone out of their way to either downplay or whitewash the fact that the gunman was a jihadist carrying out his grotesque crime in the name of Islam.

We’ve seen how 911 transcripts were altered to change the gunman’s allegiance from the Islam-specific “Allah” to the generic “God.”

Then Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, herself a lesbian, stated “homophobia cannot be fought with Islamophobia”, even though most of the dead and injured are gay men, the terrorist was an Islamist and in most Muslim countries, homophobia is actually official state policy.

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve heard “fundamentalist Christians” uttered in discussions about Orlando even though it had nothing to do with Christians, fundamentalist or otherwise. But, you know what they say, Islam is a religion of peace. To suggest otherwise might offend people and that could get you hauled into a Human Rights tribunal.

When will we see someone in authority throw political correctness into the trashcan in favour of proclaiming such common sense, words millions in the West would cheer?

Perhaps we will indeed hear this emanating from the White House once Donald Trump is elected President.

I can hardly wait.

@terrence Fitzpatrick….we live in a secular state…and you are correct that all of the things brought up against islamists were equally true of Jews and Christians. Jehoshua ben Josesaph was the product of an arranged marriage and his mother was probably between the ages of twelve and fourteen.

There are passages in the Bible every bit as outrageous as what is being thrown up in challenge of islam…but that was then and this is now.

Islam is going through a reformation…but not one that is good news….wahabiism and solophism are as nasty and mean spirited…perhaps even more so….as Oliver Cromwell’s puritanism, Cardinal Richelieu/Father Joseph/Dominique Guzman’s papalism or William of Orange’s backlash.

Actually we are not much more than 50 years out of sync with islam…..

But I …for one….would like to avoid 50 years of bloodshed and civil war…..

BUILD THE FUCKING WALL….and don’t be a fool.

Terrence, I’ve got to rebut a couple of things: You say he was confused and mentally unstable, well, maybe. So what? I get confused sometime (ever try reading Game of Thrones?) and there’s no question he was mentally unstable but I’m sure everyone goes thru some periods like that, even you. Do you own any guns Terrence? Even illegal ones? You say he praised a bunch of groups but he only said he was doing it for one. And…they are all Islamic terrorist groups who all agree in their treatment of gays. And…ISIS never said he wasn’t one of theirs so I fail to see the significance of whether he was or wasn’t, he said he was and the group didn’t say he wasn’t so how would their acknowledging the claim be any different than not? He attacked in the name of ISIS and ISIS doesn’t have a problem with that. So, it’s ISIS. Any other interpretation is ignoring the evidence in favour of a predetermined narrative. And every single source mentioned is Islamic. No Christians behind this massacre (despite the left’s really, really wishing it were so), no Buddists, no Hindus. No video or other recording of a Christian calling for the death of gays, even the idiots at Westboro celebrate when a gay is killed but they don’t wield the guns themselves or even tell others to do it for them, they just get stupidly happy whenever someone dies. Where’s the fear in that analysis? Where’s the “mantra”? It’s facts, otherwise known as the truth.
Now, there’s your Christian bashing. Sure, Jehovah is the same god that is worshiped by the Muslims, the Jews, and the Christians. I don’t think Noah et al had child brides or slaves, I’m not familiar enough with scripture to say for sure but I am sure that the scripture doesn’t make a big deal out of it if it were true. Whatever life was like 3 to 5 thousand years ago for religious and political leaders of the day and place, I guess. But why is it that only the Muslims say we have to live like that today? ISIS even has a government department to deal with the issue of rape slaves administratively, and they use the Koran as justification for it. It’s been a long, long, long time since any Christian (or Jew) used any scripture as justification for marrying a child or owning a slave. In fact, I don’t actually know of it ever happening. There are nearly a billion Muslims living in more than a dozen countries TODAY who use the Koran as justification for all the shitty and evil things that religion is becoming famous for; like child brides, polygamy, execution of gays, execution of apostates, execution of Jews, and various other forms of misogyny and demonic evils. Instead of attacking Christians for what their prophets did thousands of years ago but have since evolved from and nobody practices anymore and haven’t for thousands of years, why not look at what Muslims are doing in the name of Allah, based on writings from Mohammed, today? I just read a few minutes ago that somewhere in the world a girl is getting married to an older man against her will every 8 minutes. Nobody’s using Moses’ (supposed) child brides as justification for it, but they sure are using Mohammed’s. Terrence, do you have any daughters? Maybe you should be worried more about Mohammed than Moses.

Muslims worship the devil you moron. Get in the lineup of those needing a brain transplant. Jay Kelly is batter up and you are on deck. BTW Terry, here is a few pointers on the guy you are trying to defend. Again Terry, you are a fucking moron.

America is in shock. On Sunday, a 29-year-old Islamic terrorist named Omar Mateen shot 102 people at a gay club known as Pulse in the heart of Orlando, Florida. 49 of those that were shot died, and 53 were wounded. So how in the world did this happen?
Well, when you combine radical political correctness with extreme government incompetence and the dramatic growth of radical Islam inside the United States, you create an environment which is absolutely primed for Islamic terror.
The truth is that the FBI knew about this guy well in advance. In fact, they had even interviewed him three separate times over the years. And at one point the government had been investigating the mosque that he had been attending, but that investigation was shut down by Hillary Clinton’s State Department. Mateen had told the FBI that he hoped to be a martyr someday, and those were not just idle words. His twisted ideology fueled his actions, and so the choices that he ultimately made should not have come as a surprise to law enforcement authorities. But now that this has happened, will it change the way that the government approaches Islamic terror?
The following are 17 facts about the Orlando shooter that every American should know…
  1. According to the Director of the FBI, Mateen had “links to al-Qaida, Hezbollah, and the Islamic State“.
  2. Mateen’s father has openly expressed support for the Taliban on YouTube.
  3. Despite those links to terror organizations, Mateen was allowed to work “as a security guard at a local courthouse“.
  4. Mateen wasn’t directly hired by the courthouse. Instead, he was officially an employee of the largest security services company in the world…
    The Orlando nightclub terrorist who pledged allegiance to ISIS worked almost a decade for a major Department of Homeland Security contractor, raising alarms that ISIS sympathizers and agents have infiltrated the federal agency set up after 9/11 to combat terrorists.

Officials say Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, an Afghan-American who held two firearms licenses and a security officer license, was employed by the security firm G4S Secure Solutions USA Inc. since Sept. 10, 2007. The Jupiter, Fla.-based company merged with the Wackenhut Corp. after 9/11 and assumed federal contracts.
  1. It turns out that this U.S. subsidiary of G4S is a company that works very closely with “the Department of Homeland Security, the US Army, and federal and local law enforcement.”
  2. Mateen’s ex-wife says that he would repeatedly beat her while they were married.
  3. He started to become radicalized after separating from his first wife. While they were together, she said that he didn’t show much interest in religion.
  4. He made pilgrimages to Saudi Arabia in 2011 and 2012.
  5. He claimed to personally know the Boston Marathon Bombers.
  6. According to the FBI, Mateen has “been on the radar before“, he was interviewed by them three separate times, and they conducted a 10 month investigation of his activities in 2013.
  7. He is being described as “unhinged and unstable” by his former coworkers.
  8. Mateen once declared that he hoped to martyr himself someday, and the FBI knew all about this.
  9. Despite everything that the federal government knew about Mateen, he was still permitted to legally buy guns just last week.
  10. In an odd twist, it also turns out that Mateen was a registered Democrat.
  11. A respected Islamic scholar was urging Muslims in Orlando to “get rid” of homosexuals just a couple of months before this shooting took place…
    Farrokh Sekaleshfar – a British-born doctor and Muslim scholar – has gained a following by urging Muslims to ‘get rid of’ homosexuals.

And in April, he took his speech titled ‘How to deal with the phenomenon of homosexuality’ to the Husseini Islamic Center in Sanford, just outside Orlando, Florida.

Two months later, 29-year-old Omar Mateen carried out the worst massacre in US history by opening fire on a gay club in the same city.
  1. Hillary Clinton’s State Department shut down an investigation of the mosque that Mateen attends because it “unfairly singled out Muslims“.
  2. Just moments before the attack, Mateen reportedly called 911 to swear his allegiance to ISIS.

Note to Kathy, according to Islamic teachings, you should not be allowed to live.
commented 2016-06-26 12:52:22 -0400
Lets put this is into perspective; Omar was confused & mentally unstable, he praised no less than 4 Islamic groups 2 of which are in war with each other, he was not an ISIS agent or Al-Queda or the KKK, he was an unstable individual that had access to guns, sold his house to pay for the massacre…

Quit trying to use fear to support your mantra..

BTW, NDP sucks, Islam & Christianity share the same God, the God of Abraham & just so you’re aware, Noah, Moses & others had child brides & own slaves….

What are you people doing down there at THEREBEL!?
This new policy of having the video come on automatically, instead of me having the choice to turn on the video or not, is being taken as an act of aggression against a fan! WTF!?
This is the kind of action and attitude displayed by a media outfit that is very off-putting, so off-putting that I will stop patronizing THEREBEL if it isn’t changed. I don’t get why you’d do it in the first place.
Please change this policy – there just aren’t that many conservative news sources available…

The Koran is total horseshit. God did not reveal himself through the Koran. The Koran was written by Moe the pedophile, murderer, thief, kidnapper, slave master, rapist. If Moe had a visit it was from Satan.

Wake the fuck up Jay and go get a brain transplant.

“The generic ‘God.’ "

What an unfortunate choice of words David Menzies used.

For those who believe in and follow Christ the word “God” holds great weight. It can never be generic because it refers to the personal God who created and sustains and redeems His people. For Christians, they recognize this is the same God who chose and led his chosen people — the Jews — out of slavery and into freedom.

Likewise, this is the God who revealed himself through the Koran. As Pope John Paul II said, there can be no doubt that this was divine revelation (although, as he also said, the revelation through the Koran needed still to be “incarnate” or “fleshed out”.

David Menzies rejects the living God, in favour of a “generic God” who he can define.

Too bad.

LGBT needs to wake up. I don’t care what a person does in their bedroom. Because it is NONE of my business. However, the LGBT community’s agenda is as much over the top as islam. I have witnessed ball tournaments during "pride " week and “men” in fishnet stocking, stilettos and make up. Now if I was to “parade” around in that attire, I would be charged with indecent exposure or profiled as a prostitute. I keep my lingerie in the bedroom, why can’t you? And now you have all these rights? What about my rights? I am just waiting to hear all the bodies being thrown off our canadian highrises this summer. Islam is a wide open poltical agenda and they have only one law and that is allah. You either convert or you are killed. They are inhumane and they think they have the right to do whatever they want to the infidel. We’ll, LGBT, you will be their first target in Canada…you think you are fighting for your rights? You will be fighting for your lives and muslims will be wiping up your blood and gurs with your rainbow flag and celebrating how they killed and tortured you. You are the frogs in the pot of water. It’s heating up. Better jump out now and take a look at reality before your tossed off a building and hearing muslims laugh and cheer on your way down. It is what it is.

Good points, David Menzies! However, there is no such thing as “RADICAL ISLAM”. It’s just ISLAM which is radical by nature. Check out David Wood’s videos — his clever analyses of the passages in the Holy book of the so-called “RELIGION OF PEACE”, the Koran are informative and entertaining. David’s analyses are not based on opinions. They are evidence-based, and supported by the actual passages in the Koran and one other book that muslims use. Here is a link to David Wood’s videos, and his intelligent expose on Islam https://www.youtube.com/user/Acts17Apologetics/videos

The notion of a supposed “Web of Oppression”, the politically-correct narrative taught by the socialists, er sociologists, in our universities undergirds the contemporary thrust of social policies among ‘progressives’:
Note that Muslims, adherents to Islam,a supremacist, war-based religio-political ideology, are placed on the outer rim as among the most ‘oppressed’! The more attributes you have closer to the center of the “Web of Oppression”, the more you are characterized as an ‘oppressor’ regardless of what you say and do! Also the basis, for example, of the Black Lives Matter campaigns used by the leftists to stir up an adversarial culture.

I believe the Canadian government is deliberately setting us up for civil war. I have never been political in my life…until now. LGBT and islam cannot co-exist. And now the PM has raised a rainbow flag…an islamic flag is probably just around the corner. CBC started euthanizing our brains with the cute little sitcom called “little mosque on the prairie”. And now, here we are in 2016 with islamic terrorism happening in greater numbers and we are just supposed continue having them enter canada and we are expected to ACCEPT them! Diversity is NOT the answer. My God have mercy on our bankrupt souls!

In this video Bill Whittle, an American conservative political commentator, explains the genesis of “The Narrative – Political Correctness”:
The left had a problem as one of its ‘oppressed’ groups, part of its vanguard for the revolution against Western civilization, attacked another of its ‘oppressed’ groups, hence they found a convenient scapegoat in “fundamentalist Christians” – the common enemy for both the left and Islam – as the cause of the tragedy. What a topsy turvy world!

Great analysis David, but just too commonsensical for most people who are indoctrinated as a result of being bombarded by the leftist politically correct narrative! Yes, it would be refreshing to see someone in authority boldly throw the ’progresives’’ (aka cultural Marxists’) political correctness narrative into the trashcan in favour of proclaiming such common sense and truth. However, we live in an Orwelian time where the truth is characterized as hate speech. Thus, a religion of war is called a religion of peace and anyone challenging such a bogus assertion is deemed an Islamophobe.
