Some reflective observations on the Islamic Terrorist Attack on Americans in Orlando June 11, 2016.
We note a dangerous alliance between globalist Leftist Totalitarianism of imposed mass immigration and imposed multiculturalism (cultural diversity) in an experimental social re-engineering melting pot that is causing anarchy and corroding Western Civilised Society – to our values and standards, hard-fought and sacrificed for over centuries.
Isn’t this what the Left want? And the human rights idealists are all being lured into the Leftist Darkside.

This great horror – the slaughter of at least 50 ‘gay’ men in Florida – is a warning made manifest.
The Islamic State group has publicly beheaded three men in northern Iraq, two of them for allegedly engaging in homosexual acts, according to photos shared on social media…
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the the deadliest mass shooting in US history and says the gunman who slaughtered at least 50 innocent party-goers in an Orlando gay club was one of its fighters.
Shooter Omar Mateen, 29, from Port St. Lucie in Florida, opened fire at Pulse night club in the early hours of this morning, killing at least 50 people and injuring 53 others.
The shooter who killed at least 50 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando has been identified as Omar Mateen, law enforcement sources told The Post.
Mateen was a U.S. citizen (but offspring of Third World muslim migrants. Ed.) with no apparent criminal history, was born to Afghan parents in New York in 1986 and was living in Port St. Lucie, Fla., according to multiple media reports.
Mateen had committed himself to ISIS before carrying out the bloodiest mass murder in US history at a gay nightclub in Orlando on Sunday, federal officials said.
Mateen “made a pledge of allegiance to ISIS,” California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, told CNN.
A law enforcement official said Mateen made a 911 call from the club, professing allegiance to the leader of the Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi…
The FBI said agents twice investigated Mateen, but closed the cases after interviewing him.
FBI agent Ronald Hopper said … agents first investigated Mateen after he made inflammatory comments to co-workers alleging possible ties to terrorists.
President Obama called the massacre an “act of terror” and an “act of hate.”…
“This massacre is a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that let’s them shoot people in a school, or in a house of worship, or movie theater, or in a nightclub,” the president said. “And we have to decide if that’s the kind of country we want to be, and to actively do nothing is a decision as well.”
Related. A failure of “cultural sensitivity training” is blamed for Australian soldiers concluding that those trying to kill them and the Afghans they’re protecting are driven by a dangerous faith.
It is time to remember the political leader who was murdered 14 years ago for warning of just this hatred:
Pim Fortuyn, the flamboyant Dutch politician … was one of the first to break the taboo and call attention to the deadly threat of Muslim immigration…. He was soon notorious for saying he wanted a “cold war” with Islam, which he called “an extraordinary threat” and “a hostile religion.”
When he was invited on talk shows, he was often treated like a lunatic, and was usually outnumbered by hostile opponents. However, Fortuyn, who was openly homosexual, had a suave debating style that often routed his opponents.
In one television debate, he flaunted his homosexuality at a Muslim cleric. When the imam responded with furious anti-homosexual invective, Fortuyn calmly explained to viewers that this is the kind of Trojan horse for intolerance the Dutch were letting into their country in the name of multiculturalism…
He said Muslims had no understanding democracy or of the rights of women, homosexuals, or minorities… Fortuyn started getting death threats, and at the time of the publication of his 2002 book, he was hit with a pie filled with feces and urine. He requested security guards, but the Dutch authorities refused to protect him…
On May 6, 2002–just 11 days before the election–Fortuyn gave a radio interview in the city of Hilversum, in which he discussed polls that suggested he might be forming the next government. When he left the studio, a man approached him in the parking lot and shot him in the head, chest and neck. Fortuyn died soon after. The murderer, Volkert van der Graaf, explained at trial that the rise of Fortuyn was like the rise of Nazism in the 1930s. He said he had murdered Fortuyn to stop him from exploiting Muslims as “scapegoats,” and for targeting “the weak members of society.”

Over 100 people have been killed or maimed at a gay dance club in Orlando by Omar Mateen, a Muslim terrorist. How many more innocent gays need to die before we admit that America, and the world, has an Islam problem?
I don’t mean a “radical Islam” problem or an “extremist Islam problem.” Violence is not the extreme in Islam any more: it’s the norm…
Obama’s response to the tragedy today was similarly limp-wristed. He made no mention of Islam or Muslims, instead condemning “hate and terror” and taking a brazen swipe at gun rights activists by noting “how easy it is to let people get their hands on a weapon.” He didn’t even address the uniquely homophobic character of the attack. What a good liberal!…
According to the murderer’s father, his son became angry after he saw two men kissing in the street. “This had nothing to do with religion,” said the father, Seddique Mateen. “He saw two men kissing each other in front of his wife and kid and he got very angry” — as if that was some kind of excuse….
What sort of a man gets so angry by displays of affection, joy, and love that he chooses to gun down innocent people in a nightclub? A Muslim man. And if this one isn’t particularly religious, imagine how much worse the faithful must be….
America has to make a choice. Does it want gay rights, women’s emancipation, and tolerance for people of all nonviolent faiths — or does it want Islam?[…
Once again, this isn’t about “radical” Islam. This isn’t a tiny fringe. In Britain, a 2009 Gallup survey found that not one Muslim believed that homosexual acts were acceptable. Not one! And another poll this year revealed that over half of British Muslims believe gay sex should be illegal.
… when asked to what extent they agreed or disagreed that homosexuality should be legal in Britain, 18% said they agreed and 52% said they disagreed, compared with 5% among the public at large who disagreed. Almost half (47%) said they did not agree that it was acceptable for a gay person to become a teacher, compared with 14% of the general population.
A Civitas poll in 2014 said 61 per cent of British Muslims thought homosexuality should be illegal.
None of the 500 British Muslims interviewed believed that homosexual acts were morally acceptable.
Greg Sheridan, deservedly made an officer in the Order of Australia yesterday, says Barack Obama is dodging the truth:
The appalling shootings in Florida are … an act of radical Islamist terrorism.
We know this because the terrorist, Omar Mateen, rang authorities from inside the Pulse nightclub … to pledge his allegiance to the leader of Islamic State, Abu Bakar al-Baghdadi, and his support for the Boston bombers…
President Barack Obama has virtually banned anyone in his administration from using terms like “radical Islamist terrorism”. This is a terrible decision. It exacerbates community tension and the corroding sense that politicians are dissemblers…
Mainstream Muslims are certainly not in any way responsible for the appalling actions of extremists. But modern radical Islamist terrorism springs from a minority interpretation of Islam which does have the support, in varying degrees, of a small but significant minority of Muslims…
Turnbull, though fully committed to robust counter-terrorist action, is equivocal in the language he uses and licenses his colleagues to use. He rightly labelled this attack an act of terror but said it was important to find out what the gunman’s real motivation was.
But the gunman has told us what his motivation was.

In response to the Orlando murders, the Left would rather talk gun control than Islamism – and that means they’re just whistling in the wind:
As authorities investigated the shooting Sunday that left 50 people dead, President Obama and other advocates for gun control made calls for stricter laws governing gun ownership.
In statements made Sunday afternoon, President Obama called the shooting “a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, or a house of worship, or a movie theater, or a nightclub.”
He reiterated a need for stricter gun laws, saying, “To actively do nothing is a decision as well,” but didn’t elaborate on type of changes he would like to see. In the past, Mr. Obama has called for stricter background checks on gun purchases and for more research on technology to make guns safer, among other measures.
Reader Alan RM Jones points out the truth:
With a population 20 per cent that of the United States, France has suffered more than a dozen terrorist attacks in the past four years alone, which have seen hundreds murdered and injured. Among the victims were Jewish school children and a Muslim policeman, journalists and cartoonists, concertgoers and cafe patrons, soldiers and civilians. The methods employed were shooting, stabbing, beheading and car ramming. In previous years, bombing was the means of choice to take scores more innocent French lives. Nearly 3,000 were killed on 9/11 with box cutters and aeroplanes. Pressure cookers sufficed at the Boston Marathon.
Whatever your view about US gun laws—put me somewhere in the reasonable regulation middle ground; ie more can be done—it is futile and bordering on wilful ignorance to focus on an absence of stricter gun regulation—eg such as exists in France—as a proximate cause of the Orlando terrorist atrocity when something else is common to all of this evil.
