A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    On the plus side, he was clearly a moderate Muslim, since no one's head was cut off, and no one was tortured with knives after being shot like they did in Paris. This is proof that our national policies of tolerance and diversity are working! #refugeeswelcome #dumpdrumpf

    I know you’re being sarcastic, but the problem isn’t with diversity, or multiculturalism. The problem is with Islam, where others have to capitulate to their beliefs. The difference between moderate and radical is how they get you to capitulate. Islam needs a protestant movement, where it’s ok for others to not be in your religion. It’s the same problem catholicism had with indoctrination and being a political ideology until the 18th century.

      They had their Martin Luther, it was when the Khans knocked on their door and slew everyone from the region of modern Iran to the boarders of Egypt. Took them from the religion of peace they were to a reactionary (due to facing extinction) religion they are today. It is really quite unfortunate.
