In their attempts to blame the Orlando massacre on anything except radical Islam, homophobia has surfaced as the favorite cause. These liberals never bother to wonder where the shooter’s views on homosexuality may have been influenced by (hint: the Quran).
Well, it turns out that he may have been projecting. His wife and co-workers described him as angry, violent, and unhinged, and that may have had something to do with that fact that he himself was everything he hated.
A former classmate of Omar Mateen’s 2006 police academy class said he believed Mateen was gay, saying Mateen once asked him out.
The classmate said that he, Mateen and other classmates would hang out, sometimes going to gay nightclubs, after classes at the Indian River Community College police academy. He said Mateen asked him out romantically.
“We went to a few gay bars with him, and I was not out at the time, so I declined his offer,” the former classmate said. He asked that his name not be used.
He believed Mateen was gay, but not open about it. Mateen was awkward, and for a while the classmate and the rest in the group of friends felt sorry for him.
“He just wanted to fit in and no one liked him,” he said. “He was always socially awkward.”
In Orlando, the Los Angeles Times reported that Mateen attended the Pulse nightclub possibly as many as a dozen times before the rampage. Kevin West said he had messaged Mateen back and forth over a year’s time on the gay dating app Jack’d but never met him until he saw Mateen crossing the street about 1 a.m. Sunday.
So we have a gay, Democrat, Muslim terrorist who kills homosexuals – and liberals are still trying to score political points by attacking the NRA. For them, reality must truly be optional.
