Damnit… the Press keeps talking about how the Orlando gunman pledged his allegiance to DAESH (ISIS), but that’s not the whole truth.
At the end he pledged allegiance to DAESH, Al Queda, Hezbollah and other takfirist groups – the problem with this is that it shows a disorganized mind as these groups are RIVALS and do not have the same goals.
FBI Director James Comey said that the shooter had not only pledged loyalty to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS), but also expressed solidarity with the Tsarnaev brothers who carried out the Boston Marathon bombing and a suicide bomber who died on behalf of the al-Nusra front, a group at odds with DAESH.
In the case of Al Queda and DAESH – it’s like betting on both roosters in a cock fight.
This pledge was a distraction, and the damned MSM, and anti-Islamic idiots that follow it, as well as both Presidential candidates AND the President have bought it hook, line, and sinker. It’s the only narrative they know.
This man was no terrorist. He was a violent, unhinged, homophobe (possibly gay himself) – who hated himself so much that he had to take revenge on those around him for what he was. Did religion play a part of it? Yes. in laying down a groundwork for his own self-hatred, Islam can take some of the blame for his behavior. But if this man was radicalized, it was not because he TRULY supported the Takfirists, it was because he was taught to hate himself.
THIS was a hate crime, to call it terrorism gives the shooter a weight he doesn’t deserve, and gives the terrorists, particularly DAESH, credit where none is due.
