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.

    I firmly have an inkling that this individual was a total closet case, and was mad that the homosexuals were flaunting openly what he tried so hard to suppress in himself. He grew up with everyone around him openly hating on homosexuals, so he had to suppress and adopt their believes. But of course you cannot fight your nature for long, so he went out trying to "prove" what a devout Muslim he was, and "totally not a homosexual" because he couldn't live with himself any longer. And he beat his wife under many pretenses but the real reason was because she was not a man. He probably believed he became homosexual because he was exposed to that lifestyle in the US at some point, and he was scared for his son turning homosexual by being exposed as well.
