Orlando: Obama's response; more attacks planned for Gay Pride marches?

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

Here are some items related to this morning's attack at the gay bar, Pulse, this morning in Orlando. 

First of all, the official response from US president Barack Obama:

President Obama's speech contained about as much information, and as much propaganda, as did the CBC report on this Islamic terror attack which failed to contain even a single reference to motive other than, "A hate crime".

In the event that through embarrassment, the CBC updates their report with a modicum of fact, the original report is archived here.

Analyst, Dr. Sebastian Gora is interviewed on FOX and makes pertinent observations.

"...nor is it a hate crime". I hope someone calls that in to President Obama.

Man bound for LA Gay Pride arrested with possible explosives, weapons   

Washington Post has an article about the jihadi who attacked the gay bar. 

"...is an Afghan man who holds strong political views, including support for the Afghan Taliban."

The father of Omar Mateen, identified by police as the man behind the carnage at an Orlando nightclub early Sunday morning, is an Afghan man who holds strong political views, including support for the Afghan Taliban.

Seddique Mateen, who has been referred to as Mir Seddique in early news reports, hosted the “Durand Jirga Show” on a channel called Payam-e-Afghan, which broadcasts from California. In it, the elder Mateen speaks in the Dari language on a variety of political subjects. Dozens of videos are posted on a channel under Seddique Mateen's name on YouTube. A phone number and post office box that are displayed on the show were traced back to the Mateen home in Florida. Mateen also owns a nonprofit organization under the name Durand Jirga, which is registered in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

LA Times has more here

More will be posted separately later today.

Somehow Hilary will try to spin it as Trumps’ fault.

Obama is in between a rock and a hard place on this issue and he despairately needs to deflect. In spite of his mussie upbringing his frequent attendance at gay bars in Chicago before his career in politics would hurt his credibility as an advocate for either side.

Even the most liberal and open minded mosque has far far far to go to match the United Church.

And in a way I can appreciate the muzzie reluctance to go along with the trend….the United Church went from being the largest protestant church in canada to a small choir and group of fans directed by the Reverend Hyphenated-Lastname who ministers to as many as four parishes …none of which can afford to pay their light bill.

Oops. Islamaphobic is what I meant. Pay attention Elton.

We all know the narrative off by heart by now. The fact that he was a Muslim is irrelevant because this has nothing to do with Islam anyway. And don’t be scared of Muslim terrorists because if we say we are afraid then the terrorists win. The only thing to be scared about is the inevitable homophobic backlash against innocent Muslims, which never seems to happen.

This clears the way for Trump.

I wonder if a ‘President Trump’ would deliver a more honest message to the American people ?

The shooter was a registered Democrat. I bet he was a big Obama supporter. I bet he would have voted for Hillary this fall.

Trudeau’s partners, islamic terrorists are now blowing up night clubs.

No comment as of yet from Stupid.

Don’t tell the islamic terrorists that Trudeau and Morneau are closet homos.

I wonder, had this Islamic Terrorist ducked into a regular night club, would we be reading and hearing ad nauseam that it was a “hetro-sexual” night club? It seems the whole affair is being spun as a LGBTQ issue and a gun issue to deflect the real problem – Islamic terrorism.

Just curious. Has Hillary found an amateur film-maker she can blame it on yet?
commented 2016-06-12 16:18:00 -0400
The killer had a federal firearms licence, which is harder to get than a Canadian restricted PAL. All those hoops did SFA. Do the math

To avoid referring to this evil act of Islamic terrorism as exactly that, to not call it an act of Jihad, to evade the truth of the egregious massacre in the name of the flawed cult of “multiculturalism” and the disgusting evil of “political correctness” is to side with the evil doer(s), the enemy. It is to be a moral coward. Barack Obama is a moral coward. The CBC practices and endorses moral cowardice.

Obama’s response is, well, typical Obama.

Guns are the problem and there’s not enough controls.

Why can people on no-fly lists buy guns?

Florida has considerable gun controls. But if you don’t have a criminal record, and you pass the waiting period, you can have a gun. So did this jihadi.

And this jihadi wasn’t on any no-fly lists, so there was no stopping him under this condition.

And he was bonded and worked for a security company for the last nine years.

Obama still doesn’t get it. Clinton doesn’t get it.

But Trump does. Trump knows that if the response is always tepid and mealy mouthed, the attacks will continue to pile on.

I’m waiting for the CBC to air a story on some Muslim person in Canada who will cry that someone called them a name or worse …told them to go home after this massacre occured. Then Prime Minister Fembot will fly to that Muslims town and have the CBC broadcast that this poor soul has been victimized by a hate crime. Furthermore the authorities will do their utmost to find this verbal hate monger whose crime has injured the victim even more than the 50 dead because he/she is still alive and has to live with the scars of this life changing crime.
commented 2016-06-12 15:36:33 -0400
When a white person does this it’s a hate crime, when a Muslim does this…somehow it gets twisted as a physiological illness.

Dollar to Donates the Governemnt / Media will force this idea on society yet again. Sick of hearing excuses for a religion that has 500 different scriptures that say to do this very exact thing.

The Governemnt is constantly making excuses for Muslims who want to force harm on Western society. What is the excuse going to be this time????

I am not aware if the victims in Sunday morning’s terror attack are included in the following.

Ramadan by the numbers

Ramadan Bombathon 2016 Day number 7

Muslims often insist that other religions are just as violent as theirs and that the bigger problem is “Islamophobia”.
We put that narrative to the rest each Ramadan with a running count of ALL terror attacks categorized by motive.

Motive – Terror in the name of Islam………………..Attacks = 60….…….Kills = 472
Motive – All other religions combined …………….Attacks = 0…………Kills = 0
Motive – By Islamophobes…………………………….Attacks = 0…………Kills = 0
