NB Commentary: Guess folks was loving Muhammed Ali, a professed Muslim too much, they needed to demonise the Muslims for the sake of balance. Did anyone see the video of the beautiful Jenazah prayer service for him? Oh yeah, and they love doing stuff right around or right at the beginning of Ramadan. The cowards, love to get them when they are vulnerable. How many folks remember that the Shock & Awe campaign of the Iraq war was right at the beginning of Ramadan that year? Yeah, they are really brave to drop bombs on fasting folks, weak, thirsty and hungry.. But we know, the warriors are NOT fasting, but it’s just the blatant disrespect for the Holiest Month of the Islamic faith. SMDH.
So now we have a mass shooting, #guncontrol #hatemuslims, #falseflag, #whoturnedofthisdudeschip
Last night, around this time say 2AM or so, I got a serious dizzy spell, I said to myself, what the hell is gonna happen now?
DEAD MEN TELL NO LIES, OR DO THEY?
Now, I don’t jack shit about guns, or rifles for that matter but I would notice someone walking into even the darkest alley with a gun that looks similar to this, and not from watching it in a movie. Plus he was heavily armed??????
Mass shooting in Orlando gay nightclub: 50 dead, 53 injured, ‘act of domestic terrorism’
We have come a long way from the Texas Bell Tower sniper shootings in 1966 and the mass killing scourge that Charles Whitman unleashed on us that day.
Yes… another one.
[ Editor’s Note Update: Well this is indeed a bad day, when a new mass killing record is set in the US by a lone shooter with only an assault rifle and a handgun. The bad news is the updated statistic of 53 dead and 50 injured now. That means where were a lot of clip reloads. Our prayers go out to all the victims and their families.
I did a very quick notice Press TV news clip on the story. We did not know the shooter was an Afghan Muslim at air time. They graciously gave me some time to cover the “copycat” crime history on these shootings, starting with the Texas bell tower sniper…how the massive coverage triggered other losers seeking to go out in a blaze of glory to do the same.
We had the “Going Postal” genre, where disgruntled, fired employees would go back and shoot up their former employers and then later came the school shootings, which also became “copycat” fodder. No one call this terrorism at any step of the process, almost like permission had not been given to use the term.
I knew the question would come up about “too many guns in America” which set me up for saying what never gets airtime during these mass killing stories, that 2 million Americans defend themselves from criminal attacks every year using a gun. Many do not have to fire them, and then there are those who kill their attackers.
This puff of smoke is from Whitman firing a shot
The “people versus guns kill people” debate will be going on for a long time. A gun has never killed anyone, people do. And if they are not totally crazy they do it for a reason, like they saw someone else do it on TV and decided to do the same for whatever warped reason.
My two cents? Dear night club, with 300 plus people in your club you can afford two armed and well trained security people to protect your customers. You have the camera technology to spot suspect people. Adding a $1 to the entry fee would cover the cost. You could put up a sign that you have a well-armed establishment.
Here in Georgia churches were banned places for gun carriers, but that law was amended to allow the churches to allow armed concealed carry security if they chose. This was done after random church shootings began and everyone was well tuned to the copycat crime aspect.
After the Newtown, Connecticut mass elementary school shooting nine states enacted legislation to allows schools to have armed, trained personnel. But most were afraid of the “liability” of getting sued from an incident and chose to be defenseless to an armed attacker, depending on locked door security to save them.
No school has been sued for not having protection. In the meantime there are idiots that actually put up yard signs, “This is a gun-free house”. The house breakers and thieves are most grateful. There is another kind of sign, “We have guns and now how to use them”. This debate will be with us forever… Jim W. Dean]
This tragic incident has several hallmarks of being a false flag attack; the shooter being a young Muslim, the FBI ‘checking’ to see if he has links with extremists, the shooter already dead and unable to answer any questions. It’s all too familiar. The fact it was a gay club may also be significant, given the current hoo-hah in the US political arena over LGBT issues.
The suspect behind the gay nightclub shooting in Orlando, which left dozens dead and injured, has been identified as Omar Mateen, the CBS network reported, citing sources. The channel added that the FBI is currently checking if he was linked to extremists.
A correspondent from the WFTV channel said Mateen was 27 years old and was from Port St. Lucie in Florida, nearly 150km from Orlando.
According to reports on social media, he was born to Afghan parents.
Quite frankly, this is almost certainly an event designed to provoke further anti-Islamic feeling in the US and judging by the sort of stupid, ill-informed and hate-filled commentary that is already appearing on various websites reporting on this story, it is an easy sell.
This comment, the byline to an article on the shooting is sadly typical of the nonsense flooding the interwebs:
His level of preparation indicates an intention to demonstrate his profound devotion to Allah during Ramadan.
Since when was Ramadan about killing people? How is committing murder showing devotion to Allah? This is just ludicrous nonsense written by someone who is either completely ignorant of Islam or is willfully telling nefarious lies in order to demonise Islam and Moslems.
