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.

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has deleted a tweet quoting the New Testament that he posted after the deadly Orlando nightclub shooting.

    Hours after the early Sunday morning shooting at a gay nightclub that left at least 50 people dead, Patrick sent a tweet from his personal account: "Do not be deceived. God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows."

    Sounds like some religious extremist terrorist sympathizers are in control of the Texas government.

    He's another German [danpatrick.org] hiding his birth name of Dannie Scott Goeb (sounds like Globe). Can we get him and Drumpf to move back to Prussia?

      I think of Prussians as warriors.
      Trump never served. 4 draft deferments[1] [google.com]
      Trump is simply a blowhard and a Chickenhawk.

      My intuition is that his roots are in Bohemia.

      [1] He almost matches Chickenhawk Dick Cheney's 5 deferments.

    The Christian terrorists and the Muslim terrorists have a lot in common. They should hang out more.

      They have basically everything in common except what they think of Jesus/Yeshua/Issa and whether they will or will not enjoy delicious, delicious ribs. This is the open secret that people won't admit to themselves.

    Do you really think a politician of that rank would be that stupid?
    While I am sure that plenty of them harbor such thoughts, they leave the speaking of it outloud to guys like pat robertson and the falwells. [theguardian.com]
    The Lt Gov's office said that tweet was queued up days ago [pbs.org] which is way more plausible than a politician publicly gloating at a mass murder.

      Yes. This is Texas we are talking about.
