The mass shooting in Orlando was committed by a Muslim radical, Omar Mateen, who was born in the U.S. to his Muslim Afghan parents. The obvious question everyone should be asking is why would anyone make the mistake of letting Afghan Muslims into the U.S.
This is the second mass shooting by a Muslim, who was born in the U.S. in less than a year. Syed Farook, one of the San Bernardino shooters, was born in Chicago in 1987. Omar Mateen was born in New York in 1982.
The liberal media was making an effort to paint this shooting as an anti-Gay hate crime to distract attention from Omar Mateen’s radical Muslim ties. One major stumbling block for the liberals is the fact that Omar was Gay.
The Palm Beach Post reports “The FBI is investigating reports that Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen used gay dating apps and regularly visited Pulse before he shot more than 100 people inside, killing 49.”
“At least five people have come forward saying they saw Mateen at gay clubs, painting a complicated portrait of the American-born Muslim whom the FBI believes was radicalized by terrorist groups.”
“One former classmate of Omar Mateen’s 2006 police academy class told The Palm Beach Post that he believed Mateen was gay, saying Mateen once tried to pick him up at a bar.”
The reason Mateen picked that Gay night club was that he was familiar with it. He knew that the club was a gun-free zone and he knew that he could kill a lot of Americans there. Another article reports state that Mateen had also taken a couple recent trips to Disneyworld to scout that location.
A wealth of information is coming out about Mateen’s radical Muslim ties.
One article notes “A former co-worker of Omar Mateen says he was ‘a devout Muslim’ who prayed several times during his shifts at the security company where they both worked.”
“Monday night, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly spoke with Daniel Gilroy who worked with Mateen for about a year at a security company. Gilroy tells Kelly he and Mateen were alone each work day during a shift change and that Mateen made bigoted remarks on every single occasion they were together. After 8 months of this, Gilroy finally went to his supervisor to report what was happening.”
A CNN article notes “Mateen had even come to the attention of authorities, with the FBI interviewing him in two terror-related cases in recent years.”
“Officials say they're looking into the possibility Omar Mateen radicalized on his own. But both of the investigations were closed, and Mateen — who would go on to call 911 and pledge allegiance to ISIS during his rampage — was not under investigation or surveillance at the time of the attack.”
Mateen was obviously a dangerous, radical Muslim, but because he was born in the U.S. and because Barack Obama is president, he went unhindered until he finally launched a terrorist attack and killed 49 people.
