REPORT: Orlando shooter was a regular at the gay nightclub he attacked, used multiple gay dating apps

The man police say killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando early Sunday morning had visited the club at least a dozen times before carrying out his attack, a witness told the Orlando Sentinel on Monday.

The suspected shooter, 29-year-old Omar Mateen, may have also used several different gay dating apps, according to reports from MSNBC and the Los Angeles Times.

And a former classmate of Mateen’s told The Palm Beach Post he believed Mateen was gay, and that Mateen once asked him out romantically.

Three additional witnesses confirmed that they had seen Mateen at the gay nightclub more than once before.

“Sometimes he would go over in the corner and sit and drink by himself, and other times he would get so drunk he was loud and belligerent,” one witness, Ty Smith, told the Sentinel.

    As gay as an old flea.

  • tom_billesley

    The media will use this to distance his murders from islam. He’ll be portrayed as a gay not welcomed by the gay community. The attack will be described as gay-on-gay violence, not jihad.

    • Gary

      OMG, I smell a #gaylivesmatter militant group going out to riot and call for killing cops.
      The BLM thugs don’t deal with Black on Back crime and just need an outlet for their hatred and shallow life as a moron from a ghetto.
      Gays will now join them to go into denial as well and riot at Trump rallies and torch a City.

    • Billy Bob Thornton

      Sounds like it and I believe it was being rejected and doing the attack!

      Many he was bummed by the wrong guy.

  • Brett_McS

    It was obvious just from his selfies that he was gay, but being also a committed Muslim would have created quite the internal conflict, which he resolved by “killing all the gays” including himself. That will be 5c.

    Probably not quite the straight-forward, cool “homosexuals must be killed for their own good” of that British imam nutcase that preached in Orlando a few weeks ago (and who is now in Australia on a lecture tour – gays be warned).

    • Mannie

      He resolved that internal conflict, and presumably justified himself to himself by grabbing onto the current moslem fad of terrorism. He lashed out to prove to himself that he wasn’t a pathetic loser.

  • Blacksmith

    So a bit of a conundrum for isis, he is queer like they are but open about it so they have to throw him from a roof, what to do.

    • k2

      They’ve already figured this one out: they still throw the accused gays from the roof but they and any onlookers are not allowed to shout “aloha snackbar” during or immediately after the procedure but must simply observe in silence. I guess this amounts to the muslim version of “tough love” ….

  • FAG!

  • Spatchcocked

    Clearly as gay as a day in May……migod what hath the Village People wrought.
    One could(if one were barking mad)take the long view and see this mass murder as a tragic manifestation of liberation theology for our oppressed Muslim bunk buddies.
    But being an old futzer I like to keep things simple….Plainly Omar’s daddy should never have been a candidate for entry to the US of A.
    Now who carries the can for that malfeasance?

  • Spatchcocked

    This word association thing….I can’t shake it…….Muzzies….selfies….conflicted narcissistic personality…..Justine…..

  • ed

    reports coming in of more arrests to be made of lone wolf shooters in the club !

  • marty_p

    Maybe he was a growed up Bauchi Boy?

    • John

      It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if he’d been abused as a child. Pedophilia is the norm in Afgan culture.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Likely by his own father and an uncle or three.

  • Ron MacDonald

    Like the other recent mass killers he was a registered democrat.

    • Millie_Woods

      Gay, muslim, democrat carries out biggest mass shooting in American history. Life imitates The Onion.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Or Australia! 😉

  • Americadies

    Is this a surprise? These “goat strokers” love back door boys as much as they love their goats. Mohammid was a pedophilia just like Allah their God loved back door boy work. What can one expect from a cult of death?

  • Millie_Woods

    Is there a prize?

  • Spatchcocked

    Muzzies wouldn’t be hiding their anger and planking goats and other quadropods if they just accepted that gay is just part of the poly perverse of our nature…so get over it already…try to be decent and discreet about it….
    I tell you….reforming a religion is very frustrating work…..these suckers are inbred underbred and lack the will to climb out of their Procrustean bed.
    I’ll try praying for them….pray for St Bruce’s intercession.
