Gay dude is pissy because someone else is getting attention.
The Narrative that Omar Mateen chose ‘The Pulse’ nightclub for his massacre out of anti-gay bigotry (or, alternately, because he was a closeted homo) seems to be at odds with what the investigation revealed.
Much of the evidence regarding Mateen’s motives has remained under seal and thus unavailable for public review. But this afternoon, Salman’s lawyers filed a motion to preclude the admissibility of certain evidence and, in doing so, provided a meaningful glimpse into many of the facts that are clearly at odds with the long-standing, prevailing view that Mateen’s motive, at least in part, was to attack a gay club and murder LGBTs. That includes searches on Mateen’s phones during the week of the attack in which he was attempting to choose his target by searching generically for soft targets in the form of popular tourist locations or simply “nightclubs, Orlando” — not “gay nightclubs” or “LGBT clubs.”
By repeatedly emphasizing this anti-gay motive, U.S. media reports had the effect, if not the intent, of obscuring what appears to have been Mateen’s overriding, arguably exclusive motive: a desire for retribution and deterrence toward U.S. violence in Muslim countries.
So, he wasn’t an “Anti-Gay Hate Crime,” and the massacre at Pulse was not proof of “America’s Homophobic Conservative Culture” as reported by CNN, ABC News, Time, Esquire, Slate, the Chicago Tribune, the Huffingpaint Post, the UK Telegraph, the UK Independent, and … naturally… the New York Times. No, it was just an Islamic Supremacist who set out to murder infidels as the Quran instructs.
Hey, and remember, the FBI interviewed Omar Mateen twice and decided he wasn’t a threat.
Oh, here’s a picture of Omar’s dad at a Hillary Clinton campaign event a few weeks after his massacre.
A guy in Britain is on trial for deliberately infecting four men with HIV. He apparently used Grindr to hook up with them, and then after pressuring them into unprotected sex, sent text messages taunting them, “I have HIV LOL. Oops!”
Rowe has been charged with purposely infecting four men with HIV and trying to pass the virus to six more from October 2015 to December 2016 in Brighton, England, where he subsequently lived, according to The Guardian. He was first arrested by Sussex police in February 2016 after allegedly infecting two men with HIV.During a court appearance Thursday, prosecutors said that Rowe met partners on Grindr, a gay dating app, and then would ask them to have unprotected sex with him, telling them he did not have HIV, according to the International Business Times. If his partners insisted on using condoms, Rowe allegedly ripped or tampered with them so they wouldn’t be effective.
When you dig into what the British press is reporting, it sounds like this guy is a real sociopath (albeit with really good, Justin Trudeau style hair) who refused treatment for HIV and bullied men into having sex with him.
What’s really nucking futs about this is that if this creep lived in California, he would face less jail time for deliberately infecting people with HIV (six months) than he would for offending a transgendered person for using the “wrong” pronoun (one year).
A college diversity
weenie activist at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh (Annual cost of attendance: $48,796) thinks gay students will be traumatized by the presence of a Chik-fil-A in a campus food court.
“I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ community. So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A being in Options [an on-campus food court] that maybe people will feel that safe place is at risk,” Rachel Coury (President of the Duquesne Gay-Straight Alliance) explained, adding that at the very least her organization would like “someone” to “make a statement” on the issue.
“It would be a really big deal for Lambda [Gay-Straight Alliance] and the whole LGBTQ community on campus if someone could make a statement to eliminate the fear of being marginalized by having this business on campus,” she said.
A 21-year-old Ann Arbor woman pleaded guilty as charged to one count of false report of a misdemeanor in 15th District Court on Monday, March 6.
Halley Bass admitted in court that she fabricated a story about a strange man scratching her face in downtown Ann Arbor on Nov. 15.
Bass admitted to scratching her own face with the pin after becoming upset during a Woman’s Literature class at the University of Michigan, according to the Ann Arbor Police Department report.
Bass posted about the attack on Facebook the same day she reported the attack to the police, according to the report.
Bass later told detectives she wrote the post to convey “that all people are equal and deserve to have their voice heard and not feel endangered.”
At least one person was arrested near Stonewall Inn Saturday where thousands of people of the LGBTQ community gathered to rally against President Donald Trump’s executive order.
Protesters and state and city officials gathered near Stonewall Inn about 2 p.m. Though protesters were arrested, it was a largely peaceful rally.
GLAAD and other LGBTQ organizations hosted the LGBT Solidarity rally to show support for the “immigrants, asylum seekers, refugees, women and other communities that Trump has already taken aim at,” according to the GLAAD website.
So, are these gay Democrat activist angry because PDT renewed the Executive Order protecting gays and lesbians in the workplace? Or are they angry at his policy of keeping gay-murdering Islamic Supremacists out of the country?
According to The Hill, Suicide hotlines receive record number of calls after Trump win.
Phones have been ringing off the hook at suicide hotlines since Donald Trump was named president-elect Tuesday.
According to multiple reports, many of those calling or texting into hotlines are members of the LGBTQ community, minorities and victims of sexual assault who are worried about Trump’s victory…
The article, to its credit, at least attempts to mention real-world facts that could be relevant:
On the campaign trail, Trump told Fox News that he hoped to put Supreme Court judges on the bench who could “change things” in regards to current rulings on same-sex marriage, adding that he wished the ruling “was done by state.”
Trump’s multiple accusations of sexual assault have also been triggers for women, as well as the lewd 2005 tape recording of Trump in which he makes light of sexual assault saying, “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
But notice the bad job it does: the hysterical framing. For example, the repeated and vague use of the term “sexual assault” to imply great danger to women.
Fact: Trump does not condone rape and, unlike Bill Clinton, Trump has never been credibly accused of rape. From what I remember of Trump’s comments, at worst, he condoned locker-room talk and leaning in for a kiss or proposition after the other party had signaled her interest. And yes, that could be bad – because mistakes could be made; advances could be unwanted; cheating or diseases or painful regrets could happen if things did consensually go farther. Even so, sane people must admit that Trump does not rise to the level of “Bill Clinton bad”.
So, why this hysteria of feeling unsafe or “triggered” with Trump elected and not, say, with Bill Clinton around? Or with a prospect of Hillary Clinton being elected – given that she allegedly devastated the lives of women in helping to cover up her husband’s alleged raping? By any objective standard, the Clintons endanger women more than Trump does.
As to the gay-marriage aspect: The Supreme Court decision to make it nationwide was only last year. For thousands of years, gay men, women and teenagers have survived without that particular U.S. court decision. Believing that gay marriage should be decided by the States is hardly a dangerous position. Again, why the hysteria – among some people?
I believe the answer is this. Leftism harms you. As a philosophy, leftism discourages personal responsibility – and is objectively unrealistic. Therefore, it makes you less able to think clearly about your life; more mentally and emotionally vulnerable. Plus, in the specific case of 2016 and the Hillary Clinton campaign, leftism exposes you to manipulation via many untruths and exaggerations.
To anyone who may be genuinely suicidal over Trump’s election victory: You have my pity. Yes, that’s the correct word.
1. the feeling of sorrow and compassion caused by the suffering and misfortunes of others.
Because your suffering, at least in regard to Trump, is unnecessary.
To be clear: I did not support Trump for President. And I have my doubts about what will happen now, with him. But I’m not suicidal about him. Neither was I suicidal about Obama. Why not? Because, at a fairly young age, I made a conscious choice to value my own life, to make it better no matter what, and to develop common sense and my ability to think about reality clearly.
To all sufferers of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome): There is still time for you to make good choices to improve your mental health and your life. I hope and pray that you will.
“This is what happens when society changes so quickly. Teenagers fighting for recognition of their identity and causing controversy for taking their same-sex date to prom went to college and learned about advocacy, gay history (from the generation of the 70’s and 80’s) and devoted themselves to fighting the injustice. But by the time they got old enough to be in charge, all the injustices were gone – but the passion and the narrative remained. Today we have an entire generation of gay people in their 30’s who have not left high school in their minds. They are still fighting Ellen’s 1996 battle. They are still carrying the torch for their 1980’s mentors. They are are still arguing against Falwell and raging against Reagan. Still trying to prove homosexuality isn’t a choice or sinful.
My generation has finally built the inclusive, diverse, safe, celebrated and socially influential gay movement we dreamed of as teenagers with complete arguments against all opposition and we simply cannot accept that its obsolete.”
What can I say but… Yup.
But the Activist Left has to keep the Coalition of Permanent Victimhood. After all, if gay people acknowledged and were satisfied with their social gains, all the professional activists at HRC, NGLTF, P-FLAG and the other groups would have to get out in the real world and find real jobs; which are pretty scarce in the Obama Economy.
Feel free to waive that marriage license at the next Mohammedan who tries to kill you, the left is done with gays and moving on to court Muslims now.
Over the weekend, The New York Times found the real victims of the Orlando massacre to be young Muslims of high school age, whose Ramadan festivities were spoiled by the carnage and who were thrust into the uncomfortable position of having, once again, to defend their faith against the accusation that it was a basis for violence.
Given a choice between protecting the lives of gays and defending the sensibilities of Muslims, evidently defending the sensibilities of Muslims takes precedence. Instead of describing the haunting anxiety and fear that now scar the gay community, theNYT arouses our sympathies for young Muslims whose Ramadan observance was so rudely interrupted by gays.
I would say to the Gay Left that it’s a bummer the left doesn’t love you any more, but the truth is they never did. You were just a cheap bloc of reliable Democrat voters who could be bought off with tales of Republican Christian bogeyman and a ten minute photo op at Pride Parade.
“I’m struggling to find the words,” says Jim Obergefell, the Ohio plaintiff whose name became the symbol for gay rights when the validity of his own marriage was upheld by the highest court in the land. “To know that a mass shooting — to know it happened in a place where we as a community go to feel comfortable and be ourselves? I knew there would be a backlash against the strides we’ve made. There’s so much hatred directed toward our community, from candidates, from religious fanatics. I’m not surprised something horrible has happened, but I’m surprised at how horrible it is.”
