The horrific shooting in Orlando today could’ve just been the tip of the iceberg.
The shooting, carried out by a man who pledged allegiance to ISIS before the attack, has become the worst mass public shooting in American history. He targeted a gay club for the attack, and he wasn’t the only one planning anti-gay violence with Jihadist motives.

Fox News reports:
Assault rifles, ammunition and materials that could be used to create explosives were found by Santa Monica authorities early Sunday morning in the car of an Indiana man who said he was in town for a Gay Pride parade, The Los Angeles Times reported.
The arrest comes just hours after a shooter opened fire on a gay nightclub in Orlando, killing 50 people and wounding at least 53 more before dying in a firefight with police.
While investigating a suspected prowler, Santa Monica patrol officers on Sunday encountered an individual who said he was waiting for a friend, The LA Times reported. The man was reportedly seen knocking on doors and loitering in the area, Santa Monica Police Spokesperson Saul Rodriguez told The Times.
When officers inspected the man’s white Acura, they found the weapons and ammunition cache as well as tannerite, a binary explosive that could be used to create a pipe bomb.
The man, who has not been identified, allegedly told authorities he was in town for Sunday’s pride parade in West Hollywood.

It’s sad really. Liberals pretend that they’re the friends of gays when they need votes, but when it comes to standing up to those who wish to kill them, they’ll do nothing in the name of “tolerance”
