Devout Muslim Gay Nightclub Shooter Identified: OMAR MATEEN

“Sources have confirmed to CBS News that authorities are investigating whether the suspect, Omar Mateen, had ties to Islamic terrorism. Mateen is a U.S. citizen with no apparent criminal history, according to sources.” That’s just the kind of person ISIS is trying to recruit, so they won’t attract law enforcement attention, even while gathering materials for a mass murder attack like this one.

orlando shootingWhen asked if the FBI suspected the gunman might have had inclinations toward militant Islam, Assistant FBI Agent Ronald Hopper said: “We do have suggestions that the individual may have leanings toward that particular ideology. But right now we can’t say definitively.”

The Latest: President Obama is briefed on Florida shooting

Well hallelujah. It’s only been 8 hours since a major terrorist attack on American soil.

BREAKING: At least 50 dead in Orlando nightclub shooting, officials say

Mir Seddique, Mateen’s father told NBC News, “this has nothing to do with religion.” Seddique said his son got angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami a couple of months ago and thinks that may be related to the shooting.

Poor Omar was the victim – the gays made him kill. Same old song and dance. 300 million people in the U.S. tolerate men kissing, yet our rights will be trampled because of Islamic terrorism. $5 says what Omar saw gave him ‘impure thoughts’.

            I have no doubt the FBI substituted the real killer with the corpse of someone with a Muslim name to spread Islamophobia.

            The killer was clearly a Donald Trump supporter who wants people to fear Islam to ensure fascist Trump becomes President of the United States.

  • Billy Bob Thornton

    As someone who is an atheist and does not usually like the attacks between religions since it is really an argument about one form of practice versus another obviously to me all religions are just based on traditionalism and preserving cultures. Also attacking religions feeds into rapturism and a clash of civilizations which only serves the war machines. As an atheist I believe that wars should never be conducted based off of one off events as they are normally hijacked by the powers that be. So for me this event was probably triggered by someone who has mental issues. People never in the media talk about SSRIs and how they destroy the brain and trigger these mass shootings.

    I believe that no Imam halfway around the world can control such people. This is just a one-off event based on people with mental issues.

    Of course no religion is perfect. People seem to forget the Aurora shootings. Was that person condemned based off of his religion? People always want to pick religions that they obviously know nothing about.

    The only alternative is a police state. Americans need to keep their freedoms and fight back against the culture which would have a massive police state. Be weary America with politicians bearing gifts!

    • lolwut?


      End of story

    • ontario john

      Yes, because atheists have never started wars or committed atrocities. Well, except for Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Marx. But those were minor events.

      • Billy Bob Thornton

        The same could be argued about the Crusades for Christians and Hitler’s Germany which had Christians in his party. The point is there is not an Ummah in the Middle East and nearly 1.4599 billion of its followers are peaceful in Islam. It is basically the extreme literalists.

        • No, the point is that the source, the foundation the most important book in Islam tell them to commit these atrocities.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Well Revelation can also be pointed as to why the Middle East was attacked to bring back Jesus. Do not forget the Bible and how it mentions about gays and it does show killings. The truth is I would say anyone taking a religious book literally has to be taken seriously. Which is why I choose the atheist path because for me religion is just faith and living your life based on something which may exist after life. It is not living your life to the fullest! And yes Islam does have problems but your premise is based on the Quran but I would say that there is no equivalent to the Pope in Islam. That is the real question. Which is why there are sub-sects of Islam. There is no unity in the religion.

      • Solo712

        Marx started a war ? That’s news to me, bro.

    • ghost of benghazi

      You know that Islam – which is a death cult – hates Atheists more then Jews and Christians. You also know that if you went to sand land they would kill you for that kind of talk. Knowing those two points you have to ask yourself this. Did what I just say sound stupid? In case you are not sure the answer is yes.

      • Billy Bob Thornton

        Well I know better than to ever go to the Middle East or Europe for that matter, but my main argument is they can remain over there the Muslims and we should just stay out of the Middle East entirely. Many on here want Islam to be banned in Canada, but I feel that it would be impossible and how would such laws to ban practice be enforced? It seems to me that many of the attacks by Christians towards Muslims in terms of what is said just seems like rage or anger but is not viable in the real world.

        And yes I do want limits to immigration but just as a strategy to have immigration once all Canadians are truly served by employment. Other than that, I see no reason to have mass immigration.

        Also, I expressed no love for Islam. I just stated that religion is basically just pitting one group against another, and that people that fall in the trap of hatred may be being used especially for future wars and the future police and security state.

        • Kell

  • ghost of benghazi

    So the official talking points are a gun walked into a bar with a muslim and the muslim did all he could to stop the gun from going off. The gun was motivated by trickle down racism promoted by Donald Trump. Sad but this is what they will be spinning by the end of the day, they have no choice, they are are fully invested in defending a gay hating cult.

  • Martin B

    “Mir Seddique, Mateen’s father told NBC News “this has nothing to do with religion.” Seddique said his son got angry when he saw two men kissing a Miami a couple of months ago and thinks that may be related to the shooting”

    So Daddy Seddique says his son saw infidels doing something that offended his religion, so naturally he got angry and slaughtered dozens of infidels, but that has nothing to do with his religion.

    We need Muzz control not gun control.

    Look for what happens to the body of this Jihadi to see how serious we are about fighting radical Islamists. If he is allowed to be buried by his local Mosque – not serious. If he is cremated with his ashes blown to the wind – serious.
