President Obama Updates The World On Battle Against ISIL, Smacks Down Those Demanding He Say RADICAL ISLAM, Tells LGBT People: You ARE NOT ALONE Comments (0)

President Obama just spoke out about Omar Mateen, saying there is no evidence ISIL directed him, but that Mateen seems to have become radicalized by ISIL on his own, taking in information from the Internet. He made a point to say that Mateen did pledge allegiance to ISIL during the Orlando rampage.

Obama also pointed out that lone wolves and small cells are extremely difficult to detect, making their plans very hard to predict and squelch, but:

We are doing everything in our power to stop these kinds of attacks. We work to succeed 100% of the time. An attacker, as we've seen in Orlando, only has to succeed once.

Obama forcefully rejected not only the call to use the phrase “radical Islam,” but also pointed out the transparently political (and diplomatically unsound) rationale behind that push.

Along with his comments on destroying ISIL—he talked about the tremendous progress being made—Obama made sure to reassure “gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people” (not just using the acronym) that the world is thinking of us.

Remembering The Pulse Victims Comments (0)

Ezgif.com-gif-makerRIP to all the Pulse victims (GIF by ezgif.com)

The Victims

Many of the 49 people murdered by Omar Mateen have been identified now; quite a few are seen in the GIF above.

Read more about them here and here.

Disproportionately Latino, black, and gay, three things the vile Mateen despised, according to a former co-worker and one of his ex-wives.

With people like Donald Trump hinting that President Obama may be sympathetic to Islamic terrorists, and with people like Geraldo Rivera casting aspersions on the courage of these victims for allegedly not doing enough to fight back (hope you'll get a chance in a similar situation, my man), we have to focus on who they were—they were just like most of us, and they were just out having a good time.

A couple of notes on the victims:

J.K. Rowling posted emotionally about Luis Vielma, a 22-year-old who worked on the Harry Potter ride at Universal, saying, “I can't stop crying.”

Amanda Alvear's final moments were recorded on Snapchat; she'd been joyously recording bits of her evening, and the final clip showed a close-up of her face while a series of shots rang out in the background.

Echoing the unforgettable stories from 9/11, when dozens of people called their loved ones in a panic in their final minutes, Eddie Justice's story is particularly gut-wrenching. He texted his mother, “Mommy I love you” “In club they shooting” “Trapp in bathroom” “He's coming” and finally “I'm gonna die”.

My FB friend Jeffrey Michael touchingly, hilariously remembered his friend who died at Pulse in a way to which I'm betting many gay fans can relate:

Latest Updates

The latest on the shooting is that President Obama believes—and this seems pretty clear—that Mateen was not directly supported by nor was he directed by ISIS to commit his crimes, but rather was self-radicalized.

Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has referred to the inspiration for the murders as radical Islamism, a shift for Democrats treading lightly so as not to play into terrorists' hands—it's clear they want the U.S. to single out Islam and turn this into a global war. As long as we're clear it's not Islam, I think calling it radical Islamism is perfectly appropriate.

Trump Calls For President Obama's Resignation Comments (0)

Just the kind of measured and helpful response you'd expect from a pig like Donald Trump—he has, incredibly, issued a saber-rattling statement demanding that President Obama resign over the Orlando terror attacks:

In his remarks today, President Obama disgracefully refused to even say the words “Radical Islam.” For that reason alone, he should step down. If Hillary Clinton, after this attack, still cannot say the two words “Radical Islam” she should get out of this race for the Presidency.

If we do not get tough and smart real fast, we are not going to have a country anymore. Because our leaders are weak, I said this was going to happen – and it is only going to get worse. I am trying to save lives and prevent the next terrorist attack. We can’t afford to be politically correct anymore.

It's not about political correctness, but how about correctness? There's nothing in either President Obama's or Hillary Clinton's words that does not place the blame on radicalism, that does not identify the slayings in Orlando as terrorism. We know what individual did it, and we know what entity inspired him. Islamic jihadists want people like Trump blaming Islam itself and pushing the U.S. to a worldwide religious war, and adults and statesmen (and stateswomen) know better than to take the bait.

Trump is nakedly using a national tragedy as a way to rile up his troglodytic followers—the nation is under attack, and he's calling on the president to step down. I don't recall this reaction to 9/11.
