Pulse Survivor From Colombia Says He Tried To Grab Mateen's Gun Comments (0)

Via Crime Watch Daily: Juan Jose Cufino-Rodriguez was nearing the end of an extended trip to the U.S. — on which he'd met a new boyfriend — when he found himself in the path of Pulse gay nightclub shooter Omar Mateen on June 12, 2016.

The farewell party he was attending almost turned into his own funeral, as Mateen shot his hand nearly off in spite of Cufino-Rodriguez's pleas to stop, and in spite of his instinct to try to grab the gun away.

Instead, Mateen maintained his power over the weapon and shot both of Cufino-Rodriguez's legs.

I just fell to my knees. I thought he was going to shoot me in the head. But I lowered my head and he shot me in the spine and that's why I'm in this chair.

In a WKMG interview, Cufino-Rodriguez describes his plight:

Today, a year later, Juan only just departed the U.S. following his latest surgery. His short-term boyfriend is now his partner, and had been assisting him ever since the nightmare night.

His struggle is unimaginable, but his strength is an inspiration. If only he'd been able to get that gun — and how amazing that he had the strength to try.

Portland Hate-Crime Horror As Man With White Supremacist Ties Harassing Muslim Teens Stabs 3 Men, Killing 2 On Train Comments (0)

Via Huff Post: A white man shouting slurs at two teenage girls he perceived to be Muslim on a Portland, Oregon, train was confronted by three other passengers, who he then allegedly stabbed.

Two men, Ricky John Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, died of their wounds, and a third, Micah Fletcher, is expected to recover.

The alleged murderer has been identified as 35-year-old Jeremy Joseph Christian of North Portland, who has pretty clear ties to white supremacy and who it is alleged shouted that the woman should, “Get off the bus, and get out of the country because you don't pay taxes here.” He is also said to have shouted other, more vicious slurs.

He left the train and was arrested.

Screen Shot 2017-05-28 at 10.12.31 AM(Image via Facebook)

Why are the actions of the ironically named Christian not treated as terrorism? Why are white people not asked to condemn this or be seen as supportive of the attack? Why aren't we talking about a white-person terrorism problem? Or at least a white-male terrorism problem? Or even, considering the races of the men killed and the man who allegedly killed them, white-on-white crime?

The inequity is part of the false narrative that put Trump in the White House, and that is currently endangering the position of the United States as any kind of a world leader.

What happened is a sickening tragedy, full-stop, and look — it happened in liberal Portland. It can happen anywhere. (And it has yet to be acknowledged by the not-so-ironically-named White House.)

Ariana Grande: I'LL BE RETURNING TO THE INCREDIBLY BRAVE CITY OF MANCHESTER Comments (0)

I worked with Ariana Grande (and met her brother Frankie) back in the day. I always liked her. I have a few friends who weren't fond of her professionally, and there are music fans who seem to view everything in life via a diva wars prism, but I must say I think whatever your opinion of Ariana as an artist, she has handled the tragedy of the Manchester bombing with heart and maturity.

Now, she is promising to return to Manchester to show terrorists that they will never win — and that is laudable.

More power to her.

WIDGETJoe.My.God.: New report details the ways in which gay men are being beaten and tortured in Chechnya. Where is Trump's bestie Putin in all of this? Nowhere.

WIDGETDaily Kos: Crooked Jared Kushner is a subject of the Russia probe, meaning investigators have now reached Trump's innermost circle — and his family.

WIDGETThink Progress: Republican Greg Gianforte won the special election in Montana in spite of an election-eve assault, but only by 7 points, a 13-point swing away from the GOP. See ya in '18!

WIDGETKenneth in the (212): Manchester bomber's sis claims he was “kind and loving,” and acted against the unfairness he witnessed being perpetrated against Muslims. Uh, your brother blew up kids.
