That’s right. They all fail to mention that the terrorist shooter, Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people and wounded as many as 100, was a devout Muslim with ties to the Islamic State (ISIS). Muslims and democrats try to blame guns instead.
RAIR Foundation In a deliberate efforts to manipulate the narrative for political purposes, Democrats are pushing the false narrative that the jihad attack was a hate crime against the LGBTQ community and had nothing to do with Islam. Furthermore, they are using this horrific ISIS jihad attack to try and strip law-abiding gun owners of their right to protect themselves from further attacks. Notice how they NEVER mention the fact that the terrorist was a Muslim. Had he been a White supremacist, that would have been the lead in all their tweets.
His full name is Omar Mir Seddique Mateen and he was a registered Democrat.
As reported at Breitbart, investigators said there was no clear evidence Mateen knew Pulse was a gay nightclub before he entered the building. In fact, a Pulse security guard recalled a bewildered Mateen asking where all the women were shortly before he opened fire. Mateen chose the Pulse night club at the last minute because it appeared to be an easy target for him:
Mateen evidently chose the Pulse club as his target at the last minute, after abandoning plans for a more difficult attack on Disney World. Forensic computer experts testified he found Pulse with a Google search for ‘Orlando nightclubs’ after he left his home to conduct the attack, and appears to have considered and rejected a few other clubs before hitting Pulse.
So it wasn’t an attack on the LGBTQ community, but an attack on Americans.
The Democratic Party and their media allies are going to great lengths to make the public forget the following facts about Omar Mateen and the Pulse Nightclub jihad attack.
As evidence shows, Mateen was on the law enforcement radar screen well before the attack:
A Florida gun shop owner had even reported Omar Mateen weeks before Orlando jihad massacre and turned him away when he came to buy heavy duty armor and bulk ammo.
Walt Disney World had contacted the FBI two months before the Pulse Nightclub Jihad attack to warn them that Mateen and his wife, Noor Zahi Salman, might have been casing the place.
Mateen Omar called 911 prior to the attack and pledged allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. According to CBS News, Mateen identified himself to the 911 operator, mentioned the Tsarnaev brothers, who were behind the Boston Marathon bombings in April 15, 2013, and screamed “Alahu Akhbar” as he murdered his victims.
FBI Special Agent Ron Hopper, who was in charge of Orlando’s FBI office, reported that Mateen braggedabout “having ties to terrorist organizations.”
In 2013, Mateen told a co-worker that he watched Islamic State terrorist videos including some showing brutal beheadings and that he wanted to become a “martyr” in an operation. He also said he obtained a car from another “martyr” (an apparent reference to American suicide bomber Moner Mohammad Abusalha, who attended the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce with Mateen).
His co-workers also informed the FBI he claimed: His family had connections to Al Qaeda, that he was a member of a Shi’a terrorism organization and that he hoped law enforcement would raid his home and assault his wife so that he could then retaliate and martyr himself.
In 2013, Omar Mateen threatened to kill a Florida sheriff’s deputy and his family. According to the Treasure Coast Palm, the incident occurred while Mateen was hired as an extra security patrolmen at the St. Lucie County Courthouse.
For nine years Mateen worked as a security guard for G4S – the U.S. subsidiary of one of the world’s largest security firms, where he was authorized to carry a company-issued .38 caliber handgun.
A deputy allegedly made a comment about the Middle East which infuriated Mateen, according to St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara:
“Omar became very agitated and made a comment that he could have Al Qaeda kill my employee and his family,” he told the TC Palm Wednesday. “If that wasn’t bad enough, he followed it up with very disturbing comments about women and followed it up with very disturbing comments about Jews and then went on to say that the Fort Hood shooter was justified in his actions.”
The Sheriff’s Office requested Mateen be removed from his post and reported the threat to the FBI, who eventually concluded that “Mateen was not a threat.”
Seddique Mateen, a Taliban supporter and father of Omar Mateen who massacred 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, was invited by the Democrat party to Clinton’s rally and was spotted sitting right behind her (below) by WPTV.
Democrats are trying to take advantage of another tragedy in order to advance an agenda that harms citizens. Every time they disarm Americans they make victims out of them.
Terrorists like to pick soft and gun-free targets. Carrying guns in bars is already illegal in Florida, law abiding citizens were unable to protect themselves at Pulse nightclub, a fact on which Mateen may have relied on. Now Democrats want to aid more terrorists and strip Americans of their ability to defend themselves from more terrorists.
