A gunman carrying a rifle, handgun and possible suicide vest opened fire on party-goers at a “gay” nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing at least 50 people, wounding dozens and taking several others hostage before being shot dead by a SWAT team. It is the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the U.S.
Police originally said around 20 people were dead, but Orlando Police Chief John Mina said once authorities were able to get into the club, many more victims were discovered. Mina called the attack “one of the worst tragedies we’ve seen.”
In addition to the slayings, at least 53 other victims were taken to area hospitals for medical treatment, police said. There were an estimated 320 people in the club when it opened Saturday night.
They call it a tragedy, but a tragedy is an accident, this was a planned attack by a radical Islamist.
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.
The State Department-led Overseas Security Advisory Council report reads that “martyrdom during the month may hold a special allure to some,” and has asked U.S. organizations to “remain aware of the persistent threat of (ISIS) attacks, both inspired and directed,” according to published reports.
“The terrorism risk at the moment is generally high,” the report cautioned. 50 dead in terror attack at Florida ‘gay’ nightclub
ISIS reportedly cheered the Orlando massacre and promised to “slay everyone of you O disbeliever.”
The shooting at the gay bar took place during LGBT pride month, celebrated each year in June. The suspect has been identified as Omar Mateen, 29, from Port St. Lucie, according to U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson. Mateen is a U.S. citizen, but some of his family members are not. Grayson would not say where the family is from, but several media outlets have reported they are from Afghanistan.
Islam is totally incompatible with western civilization. They will not assimilate. They routinely kill gays (either by hanging or throwing off rooftops) and Christians in those Islamic countries and now Obama brings in tens of thousands of them in here and none are being vetted or checked. I have a strong feeling we will see more of this. First 9/11, then Fort Hood, then the recruiting station in Tennessee and then San Bernadino and now this. Trump is right. This is the largest Trojan horse in history. When will people wake up. And the politics of this is that the oblama administration refuses to say “islamic terrorist,” and will again this time, and will move right to saying “we need ‘common-sense gun control.'” And he will continue to quietly bring in thousands of potential terrorists from Syria.
In fact, an imam speaking in Orlando in April said that killing gays according to Islamic law should be done “out of compassion”: On Twitter two previous cases from 2014 in which Islamic terrorists, Musab Masmari and Ali Muhammad Brown, targeted the gay community.

Ambassador Stevens was gay and they castrated him and mutilated his body because of their disdain for gays. Hillary sent him into an area that hates and kills gays. She r efused his calls for help and told the troops to stand down. She also didn’t pull him out of there when other countries pulled out their ambassadors there,
Obama said this was a man filled with hatred. Yeah just like the 9/11 Muslim hijackers were filled with hate, just like the Ft. Hood Muslim shooter was filled with hatred, just like the muslim that shot up the recruiting station in Tennessee was filled with hate, just like the two Muslims that shot up their co-workers in San Bernadino were filed with hate and just like the Iranians who shout Death to America are filled with hate. The leader of the Islamic Society of Central Florida urged the media to avoid, “rushing to judgement.” Rushing to judgement?” Doesn’t anyone see a pattern here? Avoid rushing to judgment. That’s funny coming from the Muslims. They rush to judgment all the time and we’re supposed to sit and take that. But if they have one of their own go rogue and shoot up a place, we’re suppose to sit back and not judge. Funny how this ‘religion of peace’ keeps finding itself in the papers and on the news for some killing spree or bombing.
So determined is the president to avoid the subject of Islamist, ISIS-inspired or ISIS-directed terrorism that he concluded his remarks with an astonishing insistence that “we need the strength and courage to change” our attitudes toward the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.
That’s just disgusting. There’s no other word for it.Obama: ‘We’ are to blame, not Islamic terrorism, for massacre | New York Post
RECENT released info by the FBI has stated that the FBI has already established that this was a TERRORIST attack,”according to Press Secretary Josh Earnest. Obama has done nothing, helpful, nor agreed that this was a terrorist attack, again. He just brushes it off as man filled with hate.
The murderer: ” …Mateen, 29, lived in Fort Pierce, Fla. He was born in the U.S. to parents of Afghan origin and was a Muslim,…”
OMAR MIR SEDDIQUE MATEEN was born 16 November 1986 and he lives (or lived) at 2513 S 17TH ST APT 107 in FORT PIERCE, St. Lucie County, Florida, U.S.A. His voter ID number is 114484524. He registered to vote 19 July 2006 and he is registered in the Florida Democratic Party. He is listed as Other (race).
Sources are telling the Daily Beast that suspected killer Omar Mateen hadpreviously been investigated by the FBI in 2013 and 2014, making this yet another “known wolf” terror attack:
Omar Mateen of Port Saint Lucie, Florida, came to the attention of federal authorities twice prior to being identified as the gunman in the Orlando nightclub mass shooting, a senior law enforcement source told The Daily Beast.
Mateen 53 people and shot more than 100 in total at the Pulse gay nightclub early Sunday morning, in the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.
The senior law enforcement source reports that Mateen became a person of interest in 2013 and again in 2014. The Federal Bureau of Investigation at one point opened an investigation into Mateen but subsequently closed the case when it produced nothing that appeared to warrant further investigation.
“He’s a known quantity,” the source said. “He’s been on the radar before.”

In the wake of the largest terror attack in the U.S. since the 9/11 onslaught in 2001, former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson said Sunday morning’s shooting in Orlando, Florida, at a “gay” nightclub is a reminder of the animosity Muslims have for homosexuals.
“This incident took place at a gay bar,” Carson stressed to Fox News. “Many people on the left need to understand … they hate gay people. … These people need to be looking at that for their own survival … to be so ideologically driven that they can’t see that is problematic.” Ben Carson on Orlando attack: ‘They hate gay people’
The gays better vote for Trump then for their own survival. Hillary will just invite more in as her right hand woman, Huma Abedin, a Muslim herself, said she wants the country “overrun by refugees..
As Col. Ralph Peters famously said, “My God, ISIS is taking over the Middle East, and our President can’t even say Islamist Terror.”
Former presidential advisor and FOX News pendant Dick Morris recently stated,” The blunt fact is that in the seven and half years after 9-11, there were no major terror attacks on American soil under the watch of President George W. Bush. Since then, they have been almost a monthly occurrence with 44 incidents, most with casualties, since Obama took office.
The latest Gallup poll found voters favored Trump over Clinton on handling “terrorism and national security” by 50-46. But, likely, when the test is just about terrorism, Trump’s margin will expand. Dick Morris: Trump Will Rise over Terror, Hillary Not Ready for Job
Donald Trump and Hillary both weighed in naturally as they should. Hillary refused to mention radical Islamic terrorism and instead called for more gun control. Trump on the other hand hit the nail on the head saying: Last night, our nation was attacked by a radical Islamic terrorist. It was the worst terrorist attack on our soil since 9/11, and the second of its kind in 6 months. My deepest sympathy and support goes out to the victims, the wounded, and their families.
In his remarks today, President Obama disgracefully refused to even say the words ‘Radical Islam’. For that reason alone, he should step down. If Hillary Clinton, after this attack, still cannot say the two words ‘Radical Islam’ she should get out of this race for the presidency.
If we do not get tough and smart real fast, we are not going to have a country anymore. Because our leaders are weak, I said this was going to happen – and it is only going to get worse. I am trying to save lives and prevent the next terrorist attack. We can’t afford to be politically correct anymore.
Radical Islam attacked AMERICANS. Period. They’d kill us all if possible which is their goal. Today it was gays. Tomorrow it may be Jews, Catholics or Baptists.
Four days before a shooter in Florida killed at least 50 people and wounded dozens others in the largest mass shooting in U.S. history, a pro-ISIS organization released a hit list with more than 8,000 people. The list includes more than 600 people who live in Florida. Former FBI Agent: ISIS Kill List Includes Hundreds Of Florida Residents | The
According to CBS 12, a former FBI agent said the list of thousands was mainly of American citizens and the hundreds targeted in Florida live in Palm Beach County and on the Treasure Coast. (RELATED: Islamic State Claims Responsibility For Orlando Terror Attack) USA, YOU ARE OUR PRIMARY GOAL’
