OK. Let’s review. Last week, ISIS told us ALL that they were going to hit Florida. This weekend, a d-bag named Omar — who, not coincidentally, pledged allegiance to ISIS — shot up a crowded gay bar in Orlando while shouting “Allah Akbar.” (There is all kinds of footage out there showing ISIS goons in the Middle East tossing gay men off of the top of tall buildings. Not a very peaceable, open-minded bunch.)
And who does WRAL’s ace political reporter, Laura Leslie, believe is responsible for the Orlando massacre? The folks who support North Carolina’s HB2.
I had thought her valet, Binky, had cornered the market on saying and doing dumb things on social media. But Miz Leslie appears to be giving her boy Friday a run for his money. Here’s her latest:
She would never never never ever be allowed to hold a job like this if the ISIS crowd ran things. They’d throw a bag over her head and tell her to shut up — to know her place. She’d stand a good chance of being stoned, tossed off a building, or being made a sex slave (um, okay THAT last one might be a stretch).
More guns in that Orlando club very well could have saved some lives. More guns in that Colorado movie theatre a few years back might very well have saved lives.
Using stuff like this to further disarm law-abiding people won’t fix a thing. Being mentally ill is not a crime. How can you expect a counter clerk at a gun store to do a proper psychological evaluation of each and every customer?
I don’t see evidence of ol’ Omar being a mental patient. There is plenty out there suggesting he was a Muslim fanatic. This guy had never been in trouble with the law. But he had associations with known Islamic fanatics. He pledged allegiance to ISIS.
People like Ms. Leslie like to caterwaul about “profiling” and all of its alleged injustices. Let’s face it — 80 year old Catholic nuns are not strapping on suicide vests or crashing planes into buildings.
