Err, yes, yes, we would

If Omar Mateen were white, we’d have a different Orlando shooting narrative

I mean, obviously. If it weren’t a religiously inspired nutter who did it then we would need to ponder a little more on why he did it.

  1. “Isis quickly took advantage of the tragedy to take credit, but “they may just be piling on”, a senior US official said.”

    They aren’t the only ones, are they?

  2. No we wouldn’t, we’d just declare it was the NRA and the GOP and Trump’s fault. Just like we’ve done for this chap.

  3. “His father said that the crime did not have anything to do with his religion and was because he was offended seeing two men kissing weeks earlier.”

    *rolls eyes*

  4. So Much For Subtlety

    a New York-born American walk into a gay club and slaughter dozens with an AR-15 assault style rifle.

    I love the way they make it sound like he was an extra from a Seinfeld episode. He wasn’t just any other New York-born American was he?

    The gun laws need debating of course, but the usual suspects may well thwart that discussion in the usual way.

    Yeah. By winning.

    Meanwhile the avowed inspiration that Omar Mateen drew from Isis will lead to complex arguments about what it means for a terrorist group to “claim” an attack these days.

    I can’t believe its not butter! Just because a Muslim nutter claims to be inspired some other Muslim nutters doesn’t mean Islam has anything to do with it! Welcome to SJW World where at this point what difference does reality really make?

    In the UK, for example, Whitehall makes an entirely appropriate stand against bullying laws that Vladimir Putin signs against supposed “pro-gay” propaganda

    That is an odd way to use the word “appropriate”.

    and yet as recently as the late 1980s the British government was itself drafting statutes purely to spread smears, through the notorious section 28.

    So preventing homosexuals recruiting in schools – something they have been highly successful at ever since – is spreading smears is it?

    Even today, rightwing governors play divisive games with superfluous laws regulating transsexual use of public toilets.

    Superfluous? You stop forcing people to admit men into the girls’ bathroom and indeed those laws will be superfluous.

    The impulse to rally public policy against those deemed to be sexually different, then, has not quite gone away.

    Yeah. How sad for that Stanford boy that he was sexually different.

    Archbishop Justin Welby on Monday asserted the primacy of love over the proscriptions of the holy texts.

    Then he is a f*ckwit who should resign.

    I will support Gay rights when Gay groups support my rights.

  5. So Much For Subtlety

    We now know that almost all of the well-known mass shootings in the past several years – whether it was San Bernardino, the Newtown school or the Aurora movie theater – have featured one particular weapon: the AR-15, which can shoot a large quantity of ammo in short bursts.

    Just in passing, this shooting did not feature an AR-15. It looks like it featured a SIG Sauer MCX. Which is pretty much the same thing. But it cannot shoot large quantities of ammunition in short bursts unless it has been illegally modified. It is a semi-automatic, not fully.

  6. People are listening to what the father has to say because he too seems to have links to radical Islam…

    “Seddique Mateen hosts a program on a California-based satellite Afghan TV station, aimed at the Afghan diaspora in the in the U.S., called the “Durand Jirga Show.”

    A senior Afghan intelligence source tells CBS News correspondent Lara Logan that the show is watched by some in people in Afghanistan but the primary audience is ethnic Pashtun Afghans living in the U.S. and Europe.

    The Taliban Islamic extremist movement is comprised almost entirely of Pashtuns, and Mateen’s show takes a decidedly Pashtun nationalistic, pro-Taliban slant; full of anti-U.S. rhetoric and inflammatory language aimed at non-Pashtuns and at Pakistan, the source told Logan.”

  7. Another case of the usual suspects calling for something already essentially banned (full-auto) to be banned.

    I wish they’d know exactly what it was they were against….

  8. Here can be clearly seen the evil of CM.

    Scum try to twist truth to their own purposes.

    Leftist vermin are promoting the import of the RoP into our societies as a way of undermining them. When the hatred inherent in that creed explodes against another group of their favoured clients they try to twist blame in such a way as to further their hatred of white heterosexuals.

    They are beyond scum. CM must now be purged from society if there is to be any future worth living.

    BTW–using the expression “favoured client” does not in any way imply any sort of emotional regard from the left to those they use up and manipulate. A few nancys in the Garbager’s comments pages may tear up at the awful sufferings claimed for their various groups of victimology “sufferers” but as soon as a real horror emerges the shite of CM are in there pitching to twist all occasions so as to boost hatred against white men. The culpability of the left in the import of RoP maniacs who are now preying on two other groups of their special friends –women and homosexuals–will never be mentioned. Because CM is–like all socialism–pure hatred. They don’t give a shite about the groups they fawn over. Such groups are just useful idiots for the cause of evil.

  9. Latest narrative is that the shooter was himself a gahyer.
    Evidence for this is that he visited the club several times and used gay dating apps.

    Am I the only one thinking that if you want to do a proper job of murdering lots of people, it is sensible to scout a place out first? This is probably all it is, his scouting trips and research to find a good (busy, soft) target.

  10. You are correct Mr Drakon.

    But the narrative will be seized on and run with by the media scum. As an alternative that says “Look it wasn’t anything to do with the lovely peace-loving RoP”.

    The anti-whites are the senior branch of CM evil. The other “clients” go under a bus to preserve the anti-white line.

  11. If Omar Mateen were white, we’d have a different Orlando shooting narrative

    He’s right, but not in the way he thinks. Look at the Dylann Roof killings. And if the killer here had been Christian, the media would be screaming that as the motivation.

  12. We now know that almost all of the well-known mass shootings in the past several years – whether it was San Bernardino, the Newtown school or the Aurora movie theater – have featured one particular weapon: the AR-15, which can shoot a large quantity of ammo in short bursts.

    87 people died at the Happy Land. They were killed by gasoline. Well, technically, burning the gasoline.

  13. > the show is watched by some in people in Afghanistan but the primary audience is ethnic Pashtun Afghans living in the U.S. and Europe

    Timmy’s blog is read by some people in the UK, but the primary audience is ethnic Brits living overseas.

    > Mateen’s show takes a decidedly Pashtun nationalistic, pro-Taliban slant; full of anti-U.S. rhetoric and inflammatory language aimed at non-Pashtuns and at Pakistan

    Timmy’s blog takes a decidedly British nationalistic, pro-British slant; full of anti-EU rhetoric and inflammatory language aimed at non-Britons and at the EU.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist!

  14. If Omar Mateen were white, we’d have a different Orlando shooting narrative

    If a few of the Orlando gayers were packing a bit more than just fudge, some of them might have lived. And we’d have a different shooting narrative then, too.

  15. Orlando law expressly forbids the carrying of firearms in establishments (or part of establishments) that serve alcohol.

    Oh my! How can we have this substance around and easily available?!?

    Won’t someone think of the children?!?!!

    cont. p97

  17. “Orlando law expressly forbids the carrying of firearms in establishments (or part of establishments) that serve alcohol.”

    Well, that ban worked well. Let’s have another.

  18. I’m sure I should know, but I don’t understand the acronyms “CM” and RoP” as used by Mr Ecks. Can anyone explain?.

  19. Bloke in Costa Rica

    He is white. Most Pashtuns are about the same place in the Pantone chart as most Europeans. He’s certainly a lot paler than some of the people he slaughtered.
