Media Silence after a Concealed Carrier in a Nightclub Stops a Mass Shooting

waving flagBy Philip Hodges July 5, 2016

After the mass murder in Orlando, liberals called for more gun control, and conservatives pointed out that people should be allowed to protect themselves especially in those types of situations. Liberals would respond that “guns and alcohol don’t mix,” and that because of the chaos of the nightclub scene, having armed patrons would lead to a “Wild West” blood bath, with people shooting at each other at random.

Here’s a real life example of what could have happened in Orlando had there been just one person with a gun who shot back at Omar Mateen.

Just two weeks following the mass murder at the Orlando nightclub that resulted in 49 deaths and 53 injured victims, an attempted mass shooting occurred at a South Carolina nightclub.

It was a shooting that caused injuries to three people, but no deaths. That’s because a certain club-goer was concealing a firearm and shot back at the suspect in self-defense and in the defense of others.Hey Leftist

According to reports, 32-year-old Jody Ray Thompson had gotten into an argument with someone else and started shooting into a crowd of people who had gathered outside the club. He hit three people and was about to hit a fourth one, when that potential victim pulled out his own gun and shot the suspect in the leg.

Lt. Kevin Bobo with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office said that the concealed carrier has a valid concealed weapons permit, is cooperating with investigators and won’t be facing any charges.

Thompson was charged with “four counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and unlawful carrying of a weapon.”

Thankfully, none of the victims’ gunshot injuries were life-threatening.

Liberals would like to keep this a local story, because it highlights the importance and value of carrying a firearm. If no one had been armed except the criminal, and he had killed several people, it would have made national headlines in no time.

Perspective: The Eerie Similarities Between The Beginning of Nazi Germany and America Today

waving flagCommentary by Pamela Adams June 30, 2016

During the 1933 German revolution, the Nazi Party’s working-class military faction, called the SA (Sturmabteilung), was largely credited for bringing them victory.  This group, also known as Storm Troopers, quickly became nothing more than thugs.  They intimidated, vandalized, brutalized and in some cases killed. Hitler used this angry, revengeful citizen army to bring himself to power. When they started threatening his control, though, he eliminated them.

Led by Ernst Röhm, the SA considered themselves the “people’s army”. They were dubbed “Brown Shirts” due to their uniform. Hitler used these Storm Troopers to sew the seeds of discourse between all the German political parties. Promising to make Germany great again, he agreed the SA would be the new army.

With a crowded political arena, Hitler’s focus on nationalism separated the National Socialist Party from the Communists. His position gained enough support to give the Nazis political control with less than 44% of the vote.

Röhm and the SA focused on Socialism. They wanted to rob the rich of their wealth and spread it around to the working class. In February of 1934, Hitler informed Röhm the SA would in fact not be the military force in Germany. Immediately after the meeting, Röhm declared, “Hitler is a traitor, and at the very least must go on leave…If we can’t get there with him, we’ll get there without him.” He promoted a second revolution in a speech two months later, proclaiming, “The SA is the National Socialist Revolution!”

As Chancellor, Hitler still answered to President Paul von Hindenburg. He had to strategically obtain dictatorial power. In 1923, the Nazi “Beer Hall Putsch” tried to overthrow the German government by force. It ended in defeat and Hitler in prison where he wrote Mein Kaumf.  He strategized how to win power with the people.  Never letting a crisis go to waste, he just had to wait for the perfect moment to seize all power, ending German democracy.

The friction between Hitler and the SA was quickly threatening the power of the Third Reich altogether. Financial backers as well as predominate members did not like Röhm’s all out push for Socialism. Military leaders balked at Röhm’s promotion of overthrowing the army and dissolving it into the SA.

Hitler scheduled a meeting with Röhm where it was decided that Röhm would take a “personal illness” leave while the four million SA Storm Troopers would stand down for the month of July. Röhm’s call for Socialism had already taken strong root. President Hindenburg was ready to declare martial law, which would have eradicated all of Hitler’s power grabs thus far.

Inside the SA was a smaller, extremely disciplined group called the SS (Schutzstaffel), led by Heinrich Himmler. He, along with Reinhard Heydrich, Joseph Goebbles, and Hermann Göring, saw Röhm’s weakness. They propagandized his downfall for their own political gain, exaggerating the threat of an SA coup. This convinced Hitler that Röhm needed to be eliminated.

On the morning of June 30, 1934, Hitler and several SS men stormed Röhm’s home and arrested him. He then gave the signal for the SS and the Gestapo to begin rounding up their predetermined list of political adversaries. The list was composed of those not only working with Röhm and the SA, but anyone who opposed or threatened the Nazi takeover.

In prison, Röhm was given a gun and 15 minutes to end his own life.  He refused saying, “If I am to be killed let Adolf do it himself.” With that, two SS officers entered the room and shot him point blank. The other high-ranking SA officers were told, “You have been condemned to death by the Führer for high treason. Heil Hitler!” Over a 48-hour period, an estimated two hundred SA officials were lined against a wall, with the last words they heard being, “By order of the Führer. Aim. Fire!”

Röhm, along with several other SA commanders, were also known homosexuals. While many Nazi sympathizers disliked this, Hitler overlooked it for his own personal gain. Once the SA “cleansing” occurred, Hitler used the leaders’ homosexuality as reason for their necessary demise.

The events of June 30th – July 2nd were kept hidden from the German people until July 13th. Hitler announced that 61 SA members had been purged with 13 shot while resisting arrest. Three were supposedly to have committed suicide. It was here Hitler also designated it the “Night of the Long Knives.” He explained in his speech, “In this hour I was responsible for the fate of the German people, and thereby I become the supreme judge of the German people. I gave the order to shoot the ringleaders in this treason.”

Hitler admitted he illegally circumvented the courts, appointing himself judge and jury of his victims and ordering their deaths. He told the citizens he had a pen and a phone and could get things done, regardless of law, claiming it was “for the good of the people.” The people cheered. The president praised him. Germany’s democracy died.

We, in America, are not that far away from conducting our own “Night of the Long Knives”. Too many of us are now practicing “revenge politics”. We want revenge against the rich, the poor, whites, blacks, latinos, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Democrats, Republicans, and just politicians in general. When we pull the lever for someone on the basis of “he’s going to get ‘em”, we are no better than the Germans who cheered Hitler.

Obama ChangeOn the campaign trail in 2008, Barack Obama promised a “Civilian National Security Force” that would be “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded as the US Military.” Sturmabteilung, anyone?

Bernie Sanders supporters believe Obama and Hillary Clinton have not gone far enough in their Socialism. Sanders promises a ‘political revolution’, with all the progressive, liberal, free, socialist stuff you can stand.

Obama prosecutes journalists and whistleblowers who expose the truth behind the administration’s unconstitutional, illegal behaviors. Trump has proposed easing libel laws so he can punish those who write or say unfavorable things about him.

As Hitler did with Röhm, Obama supports the LGBT community as long as it’s convenient. While the left’s mantra condemns Omar Mateen for targeting a gay nightclub in Orlando, Attorney General Loretta Lynch recently declared his motives may never be known.  The Obama Administration just completely abandoned the LGBT community to cover for a faction they deem more important to their agenda, the Islamic extremists.

Does any of this sound familiar?

Let me emphasize I am not saying Obama, Sanders, Clinton or Trump would do what Hitler did. But can we agree there are quite a few similarities? Hitler did not start out executing Jews. He worked his way up, grabbing power whenever he could. The people were so distraught they even cheered it. Are we not at that point?

We need to take a long, hard look at the road we are choosing. History is not just a class in High School. It’s there for us to learn from. As they say, if we don’t learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it.

America needs to wake up. The warning signs are there that we can loose our republic tomorrow. Sitting back and believing it will never happen is not good enough. Just ask the Germans. Warning signs are there for a reason. To WARN. If we choose not to heed them, then it is at our own peril.

But that’s just my 2 cents.

Commentary: Democrats Push For a Police State to Remove Guns from Society

waving flagCommentary By Scot Wolf June 21, 2016

Aren’t we fortunate to live in a cocaine-free society? Society is much better off when citizens can only get legal drugs through a licensed pharmacist. No overdoses. No illegal drug abuse. No heroin, cocaine, crack or any other dangerous drug is present in America. The government has passed laws banning them. Therefore, they are no longer present in society. Right?American Gestapo 02

What? There are illegally obtained drugs in America? How is that possible? Do criminals not respect the laws? The truth is, it is impossible to remove drugs from a free society. If people want them, they will break the law and get them.

The only way to remove drugs (or guns) from society is to form a police state with unlimited government power, similar to the old Soviet Union, Communist China or Nazi Germany. The government can listen in to every conversation and search any home if there is any suspicion of drugs Police State American Gestapo(guns) being there. Citizens must give up every right to any privacy and fully trust the government to protect them. The exact opposite of the beliefs and freedoms that America was founded on.

Of course, this police state would by necessity have to seal the border to achieve the mandate of removing drugs (or guns) from society. 100% secure. Everyone and everything passing the border must be inspected to make sure no illegal drugs are entering the nation. There’s an idea: Let the federal government prove it can secure America’s border BEFORE it tries to pass any more laws regulating citizens.american-martial-law-600

The idea of a government gun law removing guns from society will be just as effective as the government drug laws have been in removing drugs. Both will still be plentiful and available to any citizen willing to break the law.

And make no mistake, Omar Mateen, the Orlando butcher, was a law-breaker. He murdered 49 people and counting. Murder is illegal in Orlando, Florida. That law did not prevent Omar from killing. Maybe if we rushed to pass a specific law banning murder in nightclubs and bars after midnight? (Dripping sarcasm)

cause of deathThe fact that I am writing this shortly after the Islamic terror attack in Orlando means I have already fallen into the liberal trap. I’m discussing gun control idiocy instead of discussing Islamic terrorism. Liberals have already achieved a key goal: deflecting from their failure to protect Americans from this real threat.

America’s founders told us that morality is necessary for a free society to thrive. They taught that there was a Creator, and He would judge us upon our deaths. This type of morality does not eliminate crime, but it deters it with the presence of eternal consequences for actions that harm others. In a free society, police primarily respond to crimes after the fact. Punishing the criminals, not deterring crime.

That is why it is so important to NOT allow immigrants/refugees into America that do not share our moral values of religious freedom and liberty for all. Once a potential terrorist is in America, it is nearly impossible to track him and prevent attacks. In this case, Mateen’s father has “well-known anti-American views and is an ideological supporter of the Afghan Taliban.” He likely passed on his pro-Taliban, pro-Sharia law beliefs to his son. Included in these beliefs is the death penalty for homosexuals, as well as treating women more like property than equal human beings. So why was Mateen’s father allowed to migrate to America?Hey Leftist

Read This Brief Transcript And Decide For Yourself Why Omar Mateen Killed 49 People In Orlando

waving flagWritten by Rachel Stoltzfoos; Reporter;  06/20/2016

The Justice Department has released the transcript of Omar Mateen’s phone call with Orlando police after he opened fire in a gay nightclub, which Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Monday will help people understand Mateen’s motives. Despite explicit statements from Mateen — a gay Muslim terrorist — that he was inspired to carry out the shooting on behalf of the Islamic State, and a history of threatening violence based on Islam, as well as revelation that he was the subject of two FBI investigations for suspected terrorist ties, some still question his motives.

Read the brief transcript below and decide for yourself:

2:35 a.m.: Shooter contacted a 911 operator from inside Pulse.  The call lasted approximately 50 seconds, the details of which are set out below:

(OD)   Orlando Police Dispatcher

(OM)   Omar Mateen

OD:     Emergency 911, this is being recorded.

OM:     In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficent [Arabic]

OD:     What?

OM:     Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of God [Arabic]. I wanna let you know, I’m in Orlando and I did the shootings.

OD:     What’s your name?

OM:     My name is I pledge of allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi of the Islamic State.

OD:     Ok, What’s your name?

OM:     I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may God protect him [Arabic], on behalf of the Islamic State.

OD:     Alright, where are you at?

OM:     In Orlando.

OD:     Where in Orlando?

[End of call.]


Guilt Without Association: The Left Blames Republicans, Christians, NRA for Jihad Attack

waving flagby John Hayward, 14 Jun 2016

blamed / AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster

A terrorist whose loyalty was sworn to a murderous adversary of the United States opened fire on a nightclub full of innocent civilians, so of course Democrats leaped into action and blamed law-abiding Americans who had absolutely nothing to do with the atrocity in any way.

There’s nothing new about that – the Democrats are a totalitarian party, interested primarily in their own power and agenda. They see everything through a lens of ideology that permits only certain politically-useful villains to be blamed for everything bad that happens. They’ll never admit that leaders like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have been catastrophically wrong about national security. They’ll never consider any solution, to any problem, that doesn’t involve the government growing larger, under their control.

Blaming misfortune on designated scapegoats, no matter how clearly they were innocent of any responsibility, is a fascist trait, and the modern Left is moving past the “flirting with fascism” stage, into steady dates and heavy petting. Blaming Republicans, Christians, and the NRA for the murderous deeds of an Islamist terrorist isn’t much different from the way earlier fascists blamed everything on their preferred scapegoats, the constant demons haunting their ideology.

Another principle that remains constant is the notion that politicized murder is directed by organized forces larger than the shooter. It’s just a question of which forces one chooses to blame, which lines of influence one traces from the killer to a larger ideological network. Of course, lives and destinies depend on tracing the right network.

Liberals who are trying to use the Orlando attack as a weapon against conservatives and gun owners are essentially saying that Omar Mateen was wrong about which network he belonged to, and which ideology motivated him. Never mind what he said, and what he evidently dedicated a good deal of his adult life to. Instead, let the Left explain which hands were really pulling his puppet strings. For example:


That’s one of the most explicit substitutions of crackpot political theory for objective reality you’ll ever see. The terrorist himself doesn’t know what he really believed, nor do the caliphate masterminds he swore allegiance to. No, they’re all helpless flotsam, adrift on a sea of “toxic masculinity and imperialist homophobia.” mental illness

You might think the revelation that Mateen himself had “gay tendencies” would scuttle that diagnosis, but you’d be wrong. They’ll just say he was a gay man driven insane, pushed into the arms of terrorists who have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Islam, by a culture of “toxic masculinity” that has everything to do with Christian conservatives, Western patriarchy, Southern gun culture, et cetera, ad nauseum, emphasis on the nausea.

Speaking of Southern culture, didn’t we just go through a nationwide purge of Confederate flags – stopping just short of toppling every statue of a Confederate general in the land – because one scumbag, Dylann Roof, shot up a church? Liberals had no problem whatsoever linking Roof to law-abiding people who had nothing to do with him, based entirely on cultural markers. No pleas of innocence were entertained. We had to scuttle “Dukes of Hazzard” lunch boxes, because the very sight of a toxic symbol might offend some, or drive others to become racist hooligans. But don’t you dare try suggesting that radical Islam has any connection to authentic Religion-of-Peace Islam!obamas lens

One of the most popular memes on the Left over the past couple of days is that resistance to the Transgender Bathroom Crusade somehow motivated Mateen, or that people who don’t want grown men in the little girls’ room occupy the same moral ground as the man who murdered 49 people at a gay nightclub. Of course, this is shameless political opportunism, and some of the people pushing it would have trouble sleeping, if they hadn’t long ago decided their political opponents are subhumans unworthy of basic respect, while their own causes are so righteous that every lie told in their service is forgiven.

But it’s also another example of the idea that connections between moderate and ultra-extremist ideas are peachy, as long as they involve people the Left despises. Linking true-blue Obama-approved Islam to Mateen in any way is strictly forbidden – no matter what sharia law actually says about homosexuality, or how Muslim-dominated countries generally treat gay people – but linking Lutheran church ladies to him is fine and dandy.When tolerance becomes a one way street

The Left consistently views criminals as hapless pawns of their political enemies – you’d think hardly anyone in America’s prisons ever consciously decided to commit a crime – so they have a ready ideological framework for positioning Islamist terrorism as another side effect of white privilege, income inequality, gun culture, the Religious Right, or whatever else they feel like blaming.Bigot-Alert-LI-600

Since there’s a Democrat in the White House, and he eventually got around to treating the Islamic State as a mortal enemy, liberals are obliged to admit there’s a sinister foreign power directing terrorists to hit American targets… but they want to blame their usual domestic enemies for driving impressionable young people into the arms of the terrorists. The current version of that intellectual short-circuit holds that taking effective action against Islamic terrorism is bigotry that will drive otherwise peaceable, moderate Muslims to become terrorists.

Isn’t that precisely the sort of linkage between moderate and radical Islam we aren’t supposed to make?

> It’s not conservatives asserting that an alarming number of good Muslim citizens are ready to embrace radical ideology if their feelings are hurt.

> It’s not conservatives who say that good Muslim citizens are incapable of distinguishing between criticism of ISIS-style radicalism and attacks against their own faith traditions.

> It’s liberals who make those assertions. They’re the ones who think a friendly Muslim doctor in New Jersey will be offended by harsh criticism of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his crew.

The association between strains of Islam is important to understand, because otherwise we cannot understand how people living in Western countries can so easily and swiftly be radicalized by Islamists like ISIS. In truth, the radicalization process isn’t quite as swift as we’re usually led to believe; it’s portrayed as an overnight transformation because the authorities don’t want to admit that signs of radicalization were missed, or were not reported by people who knew the budding jihadi.Islam is NOT

Still, it does seem to happen fast enough to genuinely surprise some friends and family members. We should be trying to understand that process… but instead, the Obama Administration is willfully, deliberately blind to it, at every level, for purely ideological reasons.

They don’t want to understand how Islam has brought so many people to violent ends across the world. That’s why they’re perpetually astounded that ISIS has so much success recruiting both soldiers and “lone wolf” attackers. The radical and radical-friendly networks in the United States are much larger and more sophisticated than they’re willing to admit. Analysts who begin connecting the dots on those networks find themselves with truncated career paths.

There are degrees of connection between the moderate and extreme versions of any ideology. The process of radicalization is more akin to sinking through the levels of Dante’s Inferno than going to sleep one night as an upstanding Muslim citizen, and awakening the next morning as a “lone wolf” recruit.

The sad, infuriating, and dangerous thing is that liberals have absolutely no difficulty imagining such degrees of connection among organizations and belief systems they dislike. They’ll spend all day constructing deranged fantasy scenarios about how listening to Rush Limbaugh leads to looking at Sarah Palin’s bullseye map symbols, and then to opening fire on innocent victims in a Tuscon parking lot. They’ll loudly instruct those at the Rush Limbaugh end of that continuum that they must change their words and beliefs, or else be held accountable for the violence of extremists.

There are people who have worked very hard, for many years, to create patterns of influence that lead from moderate Islam to extremism, infiltrating Islamic organizations across the Western world with a real “toxic ideology.” Those people are far, far better acquainted with Islamic text and tradition than American liberals. American liberals cannot see them, because they have eyes only for their domestic political enemies.

Homeland Security Instructed To Combat Violent Extremism With Political Correctness

waving flagWritten by Photo of Peter Hasson Peter Hasson, Reporter, Associate Editor, 06/13/2016

Less than a week before Omar Mateen walked into an Orlando gay club and killed or wounded more than 100 people, the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) submitted its Countering Violent Extremism report to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson. The report instructs the DHS not to use any language that might be “disrespectful” to Muslims, including (but not limited to) the words “jihad,” “sharia” and “takfir.”

The report was crafted by an HSAC subcommittee that Secretary Johnson created in November 2015. The head of that subcommittee, Farah Pandith, was appointed by Johnson in May 2015. The subcommittee published the report on June 9.Picture2

In addition to combating violent extremism by reaching out to “gender diverse” Americans and teaching youth “appropriate online etiquette,” the report recommends that the DHS “avoid stigmatizing specific communities.”

The report urges DHS officials to “Reject religiously-charged terminology and problematic positioning by using plain meaning American English.”

For example, the report says the DHS should be “using American English instead of religious, legal and cultural terms like ‘jihad,’ ‘sharia,’ ‘takfir’ or ‘umma.’”What did you say 06.jpg

The report acknowledges that, “There is a disagreement among scholars, government officials, and activists about the right lexicon to use around the issues of violent extremism.”

Nevertheless, the report states, “Under no circumstance should we be using language that will alienate or be disrespectful of fellow Americans.”

“We must speak with honor and respect about all communities within the United States. We should give dignity to the many histories and diversities within our nation and advocate for a consistent whole of government approach that utilizes agreed terms and words. Tone and word choice matter,” the report states. of domenstic terrorist

The report includes other recommendations for countering violent extremism, such as: “Focus on gender diversity of youth through careful attention to the range of push and pull factors that attract individuals of differing gender.”

The report also recommends countering extremism by teaching youth “appropriate online etiquette.”

The report instructs the DHS to “Develop a curriculum in partnership with the Department of Education and education experts and non-profits to disseminate to schools, teaching children appropriate online etiquette to mitigate online hate.”

The DHS website states that HSAC, “Provides organizationally independent advice and recommendations to the Secretary, including the creation and implementation of critical and actionable policies for the security of the homeland.”

ACLU Lawyers Blame Christians For Orlando Terror Attack

Several American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) attorneys took to Twitter to blame the “Christian Right” for Sunday’s deadly terrorist attack at a nightclub in Orlando, Fla., which left 50 dead and 53 injured.

Chase Strangio, a staff attorney with the ACLU’s LGBT and AIDS Project, claimed the social and political environment cultivated by Christian conservatives in recent months was to blame for the shooting at Pulse, a nightclub popular with Orlando’s LGBT community.

Which Religion Is To Blame For The Orlando Terrorist Attacks?

Strangio also called for solidarity between American Muslims and LGBT communities, arguing both are maligned and oppressed by the religious right.

Federal law enforcement officials have identified ?????????, of Port St. Lucie, Fla., as the alleged shooter. ///// father told NBC news his son harbored anti-gay sentiments, and said his son gave voice to those feelings recently during a trip to Miami, where he saw two men kissing.

Another ACLU attorney, Eunice Hyon Min Rho, who specializes in election and religious liberty law, impugned the motives of Republican lawmakers who expressed sympathy for the victims, by pointing out many were sponsors of the First Amendment Defense Act, legislation the ACLU considers anti-LGBT.

She further characterized expressions of solidarity as “useless,” as many of the victims could be people of color, who she contends are regularly stigmatized by Republican legislators. Little demographic data is currently available about the victims, as many have not yet been identified.

She went on to retweet a user who claimed many public officials would use the auspices of an LGBT tragedy to pursue an “anti-Muslim agenda.”

The ACLU did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

Update: Rho appears to have deleted her Twitter account. Multiple attempts to locate her account on the social media platform were unsuccessful.

We Need to Stop Blaming ‘Guns,’ and Start Blaming Radical Islam

waving flagBy Rob Knowles June 13, 2016

URL of the original posting site:

Early Sunday morning, a gunman opened fire in a gay night club called “Pulse” in Orlando, Florida. At this point, the death toll stands at approximately 49, making this horrifying tragedy the deadliest mass-shooting in U.S. history, as well as the most devastating terror attack on American soil since 9/11.

As expected, the Left has immediately jumped to gun control:

or01 or02

The reason liberals are rushing to blame guns is because they don’t have anything else to blame. The shooter, Omar Saddiqui Mateen, was a radical problem

According to CNN:

“[Mateen] called 911 around the time of the attack to pledge allegiance to ISIS and mentioned the Boston bombers, according to a U.S. official.”

This was an act of radical Islamic terrorism. However, the Left cannot acknowledge such a thing because they refuse to identify the enemy. We’re dealing with an ideology that isn’t simply religious, but political and cultural. Radical Islamists in the Middle East routinely execute homosexuals by various means, including tossing them off buildings.

Mateen’s target wasn’t random. He sought out a club full of individuals whom he believed should be put to death, and systematically slaughtered them. This was not a random act of violence. This was not a “mass-shooting” in the way of Sandy Hook. This was not a “hate crime.” Like San Bernardino before it, this was an act of war against western culture by radical Islam.AMEN

I keep seeing posts on social media repeating the same idiotic notion: This wasn’t because of Islam, it was an act of hate. I would follow that up with this: An act of hate because…his radical Islamic ideology teaches him to hate gays.

As Ted Cruz rather brilliantly said yesterday:

“For all the Democrats who are loud champions of the gay and lesbian community whenever there is a culture battle waging, now is the opportunity to speak out against an ideology that calls for the murder of gays and lesbians. ISIS and the theocracy in Iran (supported with American taxpayer dollars) regularly murder homosexuals, throwing them from buildings and burying them under rocks. This is wrong, it is evil, and we must all stand against it…

If you’re a Democratic politician and you really want to stand for LGBT, show real courage and stand up against the vicious ideology that has targeted our fellow Americans for murder.”

If the Left refuses to fight for the people they claim to champion, even when they know in their hearts who the enemy is, they are truly and utterly repugnant.

They can cry for days about how “sensible gun control” would have prevented this massacre, but we don’t know that. Most likely, it wouldn’t have. Other than complete confiscation, there is very little that can be done to “control” guns. Moreover, the sad reality is that in our disturbed world, bad guys will always–let me repeat that–always have access to the weapons they want. The only thing gun control will accomplish is leaving law-abiding Americans unarmed in the face of terror.Disarmed Citizenry

So let’s place the blame where it belongs–on radical Islamic ideology. If we keep our eyes firmly shut, the blood will never stop running, and eventually, we won’t have any left.
