Say what you will about Donald Trump (like we have about him not understanding due process or the 2nd amendment), but for the LGBTQ community to blame him or his supporters for the Islamic terror attack in Orlando?!
“[The attack stemmed from] a particular type of culture that is being brought up right now by, for example, the most prominent and visible, Donald Trump supporters,” the man told TheBlaze.
Except The shooter was a Democrat. Again, the shooter. Was. A. Democrat.
He said the attack was also the result of the “absolute disgust and loathing for anything other than one’s selfishness” and “easy access to guns.” Many at the rally seemed to agree that access to firearms, followed by homophobia, was the leading reason behind the attack.
And the source of that homophobia? I’ll give you a hint…
“It’s definitely a combination of a lack of gun control and just so much hate for the LGBT community. I would not blame Islam for this. Islam is a religion of peace, even though there is a lot of extremism, there have been no high examples so far in the United States of America that show straight-up LGBT hate, as far as Islam goes.”
Try to leave radical extremism out of the deadly shooting in Orlando. Just blame no gun control and straight-up hate of the LGBT community.
Look, if you want to go the “I don’t want to blame a whole group of people for the acts of a few” route, God bless. We may disagree in this particular instance, but I understand the sentiment. So long as you can substantiate it, we can have a discussion.
I would just take you more seriously if you didn’t then turn around and blame every other group except for the one that was actually responsible.
#NotAllMuslims? Okay, I get it.
I guess we’re running out of hashtag space.
Here’s Bob Ross painting a picture of Muhammad. Screw you.
