Fact – The Orlando terrorist declared on a 911 call that he pledged allegiance to ISIS.
Fact – ISIS claimed responsibility for the Orlando killings.
But even with these facts, NPR is still not ready to link this violence with Islamic Terrorism:
Investigation is still ongoing, and right now they say they can’t determine one way or the other. But folks we’ve talked to down here say it’s pointing to an unstable individual with violent tendencies.
Now here is my thought experiment….
Imagine if the shooter was a Christian and he called 911 and declared his allegiance to the 1st Baptist Church of Orlando.
Also imagine that the 1st Baptist Church of Orlando claimed responsibility even though there was no link to the shooter and the church.
Do you think the Main Stream Media and the Liberal Elites would be cautious to declare a link between the violence and Christianity?
Major Hasan was radicalized watching videos of Anwar al-awlaki. The shootings he engaged in were called workplace violence. Hasan’s colleagues and superiors we’re concerned about his radical Islamic statements.
Mateen was radicalized watching videos of Anwar al-awlaki. His colleagues we’re concerned about his radical Islamic statements. One coworker quit when they wouldn’t transfer him away from Mateen.
Here’s a thought experiment. What is there about shouting Allahu Akbar, while shooting people, that Barack Obama and NPR can’t seem to understand?
