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.

    Name calling makes you right? Idiot?

    Speaking of specific groups - a fucking MUZZIE gunned down a hundred AMERICANS. I guess you missed those groups? Do you even bother to read and think about the news?

    The particular group of MURICANS has significance. Read further, dipshit.

      Gays are an insignificant group of Americans, totaling less than 3% of the population. They don't come equipped with guns, and they have no mission in life.

      Muslims, on the other hand, are more significant, because they are 1% of the population, and they come with guns and a mission in life. One of those missions is to eradicate homos.

      Significance.

          The difference between us is, you seem to give a damn that I might be "offended". Me? I don't give a rat's ass that you might be offended. I don't even care enough about you to try to offend you. I realize that those of you who wish to be offended would be offended even if I offered praise and flattery, so it just doesn't matter.

          Now, if you don't mind, I'll just keep on being offended that muslims are free to walk about in my country, gunning down people they disapprove of. It's my right to shoot my fellow Americans, he has no such right.

          Oh yeah - did you read this link, posted by frojack? http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/06/former-coworker-pulse-killer-omar-mateen-employer-nothing-homophobic-racist-comments-cuz-muslim/ [thegatewaypundit.com]

          This dirtball Muslim had been talking about killing faggots for YEARS, but he was given a free pass because he's a Muzzie.

          Geez, I wonder if that offends you?

            So... according to you he did target a specific group, so it really wasn't about gun-free zones then. Okily dokily.

              What does that mean, exactly? Profiling works, doesn't it? We got an immigrant raghead who runs at the mouth about hating queers, and even talks about killing them - and he's given a free pass. His employer, the FBI, and God knows who else gave him a pass. This is liberal tolerance, at it's worst.

                Let's move dem goalposts away from the gun-free-zone topic that you started, no matter how silly you sound in transit. 'Profilin caught me a raghead! Hyuck.'

                  This is life, Gomer. There aren't any goalposts, unless you consider your tombstone to be a goal post. While you philosophize about goal posts, some Muzzie is planning another attack on Christians, Americans, gays, infidels, or even his own fellow Muslims because they don't worship in some precise method of worship.

                      You've not been paying attention, have you? Remember Sandy Hook? The gun-free sign DID NOT MATTER!! How many, 20 kids, dead because idiots thought a stupid assed sign mattered. Another idiot proved them dead wrong.

                  I love watching people like him have a meltdown when people like you back them into a corner and point out their complete dysfunctional hypocrisy! It's like watching a very large toddler inching closer and closer to a massive, red-faced, floor-pounding temper tantrum. The worst part, though, is they expect everyone else to be dumb enough to mistake their macho posturing for anything approaching common sense, civility, or self-control.

                    Thank you. What I enjoy most is watching how their lack of internal cohesion compromises the principles they claim they hold. I'm counting two big ones so far.

            So how long do we have to wait till it's your turn to be the wackjob in the news gunning down Americans? This time for being muzzies instead of faggots.

            How different really are you from him?
