Why did the terrorist murder them? Because he was driven by a fanatical hatred. He targeted the LGBT community because he believed they were evil.
Now, the murderer wasn’t alone. Regimes and terrorist organizations around the world ruthlessly persecute the LGBT community.
In Syria, ISIS throws gays off rooftops.
In Iran, the regime hangs gays from cranes.
Too many people have remained silent in the face of this awful persecution. This week’s shooting wasn’t merely an attack on the LGBT community. It was an attack on all of us, on our common values of freedom and diversity and choice.
Radical Islamist terror makes no distinction between shades of infidel.
This week it was gays in Orlando. A few days before that it was Jews in Tel Aviv. Before that it was music fans in Paris; Travelers in Brussels; Yazidis in Iraq; Community workers in San Bernardino; Christians and journalists in Syria.
All of us are targets.
The seriousness of the situation probably doesn’t call for a GIF, but…
It deserves it anyway.
As usual, Bibi gets it. He would understand Islamic terrorism better than most, what with his tiny country being surrounded by Islamic countries who pray and chant for Israeli’s extinction at every opportunity. Such wanton hatred on behalf of the Religion of Peace (TM) gives one a decent perspective on this little thing known as “reality.”
I’m inspired. Let’s look at Islam as seen through the eyes of leftism, narrowing in on a point Bibi made: “Radical Islamist terror makes no distinction between shades of infidel.”
In other words, they’re equal opportunity terrorists, the Islamists! They do not discriminate based race, sex, gender, sexual orientation or religion. SWEET! No wonder the left loves them. Gay? Death. Transgender? Death. Christian? Death. Jew? Death. Want to leave Islam? Death. Woman who was raped without having four male witnesses? Death. Woman with wandering eye? Death. A likely slutty death.
If you’re sensing a pattern here, reach back and give yourself a pat. Maybe get yourself a donut. You deserve it.
Islam is as much the religion of peace as Amy Schumer is a poster child for polite society. You know it, I know it, Bibi knows it, now the American LGBT community knows it.
Bibi’s call to stand united against Islamic terrorism is dead on accurate. Let’s first start by identifying it for what it is, then fighting back. Yes? No more blaming the NRA or Christians for the acts of Islamic terrorist. That’s step one. You with us leftists?
Right, they’ll just sit in their safe spaces issuing trigger warnings and blaming everyone else. Meanwhile, everyone else? Arm yourselves. Read Dear LGBT Community: Get Yourselves Some Guns. Now.
Speaking of Israel fighting Islamists…
