Commentary on the massacre at the gun-free nightclub

American Thinker:
--Orlando: Why it Means War  ..."If it takes the foul murder of 50 gays in a bar in Orlando, Florida, to finally get our ruling class serious about its fundamental task [of protecting our citizens], then so be it.
"But I would ask our gay friends, after grieving for their dead compadres, to lay off on the Christian bakers and pizza parlors for a while. If we are to fight Islamic terrorists it does no good to be punishing your domestic enemies for WrongThink."
--Why Omar Mateen’s obvious danger signs were missed and he was allowed to purchase weapons  . . . "Keep in mind the systematic purge from counter-terrorism training of any references to Islam." . . . 
--ACLU attorneys blame 'Christian right' for Orlando shooting  "Why blame Islam when Christians throw gays off the top of buildings, burn them alive, throw them in jail...oh, wait. " 
--Islamist or Progressive? It's getting hard to tell the Difference  . . . "Similarly, uber-liberal Sally Kohn tweeted, “Every religion has sub-groups of intolerant extremism. You can’t tell me the problem is religion. The problem is intolerant extremism.” 
"Indeed. As an anti-American leftist, Ms. Kohn marinates in a cult of intolerant extremism in its unhinged rejection of all forms of disagreement." . . .
--Message from Orlando: Trump is right on Muslim immigration  . . . Obama and Hillary still think they can shame the public into silence by accusations of Islamophobia and racism.  Trump knows how to handle them." 

Other sources:
Hillary’s Bizarre Flip Flop on Orlando   "Hillary just flip flopped on radical Islam.
"After the Orlando terror attack, Hillary refused to use the words “radical Islam” and she blamed guns for the assault in her weak-kneed response.
"She was echoing Barack Obama’s remarks in her first written statement by refusing to mention Islam but condemning… guns. She bemoaned “other violent criminals.' ”. . . Clinton and Trump clash over this.

Mr. Obama: Is The ORLANDO MASSACRE What You Consider ‘ISIS(al Qaeda) On The Run?’  . . . "Here again, and horribly, we have an unmistakable indication that Obama finds it astonishingly easy to divorce himself from a reality he doesn’t like — the reality of the Islamist terror war against the United States and how it is moving to our shores in the form of lone-wolf attacks." . . .


The consequences of the wrong discussion  "San Bernadino and Orlando were successful because the government let suspicious people buy firearms because they wanted to be seen like they’re not biased against a terrorist ideology. Meanwhile, they want to further restrict the ability of legal, law-abiding gun owners to arm themselves."

National Review:
Obama Would Rather Declare War on the English Language than Speak of Islamic Terrorism   . . . "There is good reason not to keep up a constant drumbeat emphasizing radical Islam’s ties to terrorism: We need the help of the world’s Muslim populations, and the last thing we want to do is drive them away by implying that they’re all our enemies. But the Obama’s administration’s PC attitudes come across as a sign of weakness to both friend and foe alike." . . . 

It’s Time for a Long-Term Strategy to Utterly Crush Islamic Terrorism   . . . "But the power of the Islamic State is not just in its materiel. Its success in evangelizing its murderous ideology is a problem the United States national-security apparatus has failed to address." . . .
"It will require discrediting the ideology that has appealed to so many in the West and the Middle East. And it will require demonstrating that we will deal swiftly and pitilessly with those who engage in, or support, terrorism." . . .

No, We Are Not ‘Doing Everything We Can’   . . . "We should forthrightly acknowledge that the plain conclusion to be drawn from the European experience is that if a Western country does not already have a large, poorly assimilated Muslim minority population, it would do well not to acquire one. To pretend that Islam is, at this moment in history, just another faith to be absorbed into the general American ethic, as though Muslim distinctiveness were no different from Amish distinctiveness, is culpably sentimental." . . .

PJ Media:
Why Obama Still Refuses to Name Radical Islam


. . . "No, Obama's refusal to name radical Islam stems from two closely entwined factors—an enduring distaste for American power and deep personal shame (not that buried, but buried enough) of his own profound childhood connection to Islam. Not to get too psychoanalytic, to Obama, if there is something wrong with Islam, there is something wrong with him. Better to think there is something wrong with us." . . .
