FINGER ON THE PULSE – Turns out the gay nightclub “Pulse” might not have been the Orlando mass shooter Omar Mateen’s first choice for a target:
The Orlando nightclub shooter intended to attack Disney World’s shopping and entertainment complex by hiding a gun in a stroller but became spooked by police and instead chose the gay club as his target, prosecutors said Wednesday.
Prosecutors revealed the details during their closing arguments in the trial of Noor Salman, the widow of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen.
Salman, 31, is accused of aiding her husband in the attack that killed 49 people in 2016. She is charged with obstruction and providing material support to a terrorist organization.
So now you’re telling us that all that Republican– and Christian-whipped up atmosphere of homophobia and bigotry was perhaps not to blame for Mateen’s actions? Gosh, maybe he wasn’t even a self-loathing homosexual? And what about the radical revelation that Mateen chose not to commit his ISIS-inspired act of terror at a policed location but instead chose a “gun-free” nightclub? I was told that gun-free zones are the safest because there are no guns there. I don’t know what to think anymore.
