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.

    Unless we agree with you, we're spineless cowards who are collaborating the totalitarians.

    No, just cowardly authoritarians. I have no idea if you're directly working with authoritarians who are in positions of power or not.

    OK, got it. It's going to be very productive discussing this issue with you.

    I don't feel the need to be civil with people who want to infringe upon everyone's liberties. Our goals and values are simply irreconcilable.
