On the Orlando murderer and the PC that enabled him

Orlando shooter Omar Mateen was gay, former classmate says....Palm Beach Post   . . . "He said Mateen asked him out romantically." . . .  “ 'We went to a few gay bars with him, and I was not out at the time, so I declined his offer,” the former classmate said. He asked that his name not be used.". . .

Daniel Gilroy, the co-worker who warned of Omar Mateen’s deranged hatred, earlier was a victim of political correctness   "Political correctness is a theme woven through the backstory of the Orlando nightclub jihad killer.  Law enforcement and his employer were unable to cull out Omar Mateen from his job as a security guard and access to serious weapons, enabling his short but bloody career as a self-radicalized jihadi.
"Heartbreakingly, there was a man who tried to warn of this smoldering human inferno.  The Los Angeles Times explains:
Daniel Gilroy, 44, worked with Mateen for about a year as a security guard at PGA Village South in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
"I complained multiple times that he was dangerous, that he didn't like blacks, women, lesbians and Jews," Gilroy told The Times on Sunday.
Mateen threatened violence in front of him, Gilroy said. Once when Mateen saw an African American man driving past, he said he wished he could kill all black people, using a racial slur, Gilroy recalled.
"You meet bigots," Gilroy said, "But he was above and beyond. He was always angry, sweating, just angry at the world."
"Gilroy’s warning went unheeded:" . . .

. . . "Why? According to Gilroy, it failed to act because Mateen is Muslim".  . . . "It wouldn’t be surprising if some employers fail to discipline Muslims who would be punished but for their religion, due to a combination of political correctness and fear of being sued. Nor would it be surprising if law enforcement agencies are reluctant to follow leads, or follow through on them, for similar reasons." . . .

Orlando Attack Is a Failure of Obama’s ‘Politically Correct’ Policy, Analysts Say   . . . "Former FBI Agent John Guandolo said the FBI mistakenly closed its investigation because it had no idea how to respond to jihadist threats because the bureau does not teach agents about Islamist doctrine, such as Sharia law, that is used as a guide for terrorist operations and activities.
“ 'This investigation was closed because FBI leadership has systematically refused to look at and teach Sharia to its agents because it is getting its advice on Islam from Muslims who are hostile to us and our system of government,” Guandolo said." . . .

Obama's Heart  "Obama referred to the massacre as “an act of terror and an act of hate.” In the course of perpetrating the massacre, Omar Mateen reportedly made a 911 call pledging allegiance to the Islamic State. Obama nevertheless plugged gun control and omitted any mention of Islam or the Islamic State."

Obama, Clinton Say 'Disarm' While Failing to Protect   . . . "The administration has a security model that is not working. The FBI is looking for ordinary criminals and "hatemongers." Armed with these descriptions, they keep letting the usual suspects go because they don't fit the bill. Yet time and again they come back as a surprise.
"Maybe the greatest trick Islamic terrorism ever pulled was convincing Obama it didn't exist."

  After Orlando, the Spin begins
After Orlando, the Spin begins  "The horrific attack at an Orlando gay bar by a Muslim who had sworn allegiance to Isis is probably going to be spun as a hate crime. The killer's father has already told the media that his son was disgusted by the sight of a man kissing another man. See! It's homophobia: an assault on the civil rights of the LGBTQ community. Now let's wait for the video to appear that will explain what drove Omar Mateen to slaughter 50 people and wound 53 others. The fact that it is Ramadan and that Omar was well trained and shouted Allahu Akbar while shooting the innocents will be dismissed as well as the fact that he was a registered Democrat. The blame will instead be put on Donald Trump's hateful rhetoric and the NRA gun crowd.

"On ABC, liberal iconic journalist, Tom Brokaw just had to blame the slaughter on the popularity of guns in America." . . .
