New details have been released about Omar Mateen, the Muslim terrorist that perpetrated the attacks on the Pulse gay night club, the same attacks that would claim the top spot as most deadly mass shooting in the US. Mateen was an avid social media user and was claimed to have at least five Facebook accounts to his name and he posted before and during his rampage.
However, his Facebook profile was taken down just hours after the shooting took place, for unknown reasons, and authorities have pressured Facebook to release the information he posted. Some of his posts were uncovered, and they fly in the face of the “lone wolf acting not in the name is Islam” narrative that Obama has trotted out time and time again.
They also prove that Donald Trump was absolutely right in his initial assessment of this being an Islamic terrorists attack, despite liberal outcries to the contrary.
According to Fox News,
In the hours after he blasted his way into an Orlando gay nightclub, and with his victims lying dead or wounded around him, Omar Mateen took to Facebook to pledge his loyalty to ISIS and threaten more attacks on the civilized world, a key lawmaker privy to the gunman’s posts told FoxNews.com Wednesday.
Mateen, who killed 49 people and wounded 53 inside Pulse early Sunday, died when a SWAT team stormed the club. But in the roughly four hours between his initial rampage and his death, the 29-year-old radicalized Muslim broadcast his twisted message of hate on social media, according to Senate Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wisc.
Just as in the 911 call prior to the attack, Mateen pledged his undying passion for the Islamic State, a stark contrast to the “moderate” Muslim that his family purported him to be. Fox News continues,
“I pledge my alliance to (ISIS leader) abu bakr al Baghdadi..may Allah accept me,” Mateen wrote in one post early Sunday morning. “The real muslims will never accept the filthy ways of the west” …“You kill innocent women and children by doing us airstrikes..now taste the Islamic state vengeance.”
Mateen’s social media accounts were taken down before they could be widely viewed by the public, but Johnson’s committee investigators have uncovered some or all of them. The senator has also written a letter to Facebook executives expressing concern about Mateen’s postings and asking for more information on his activities.
“It is my understanding that Omar Mateen used Facebook before and during the attack to search for and post terrorism-related content,” read Johnson’s letter. “According to information obtained by my staff, five Facebook accounts were apparently associated with Omar Mateen.”
The posts uncovered by Johnson’s committee shed light on Mateen’s actions in the hours that followed his 2 a.m. raid on the nightclub. Mateen, armed with an assault rifle and a handgun, shot his way past an off-duty cop and sprayed bullets throughout the club, which was packed with more than 300 revelers when he arrived. Some escaped, many died or were wounded and scores more waited out the horrific ordeal, knowing each moment could be their last.
As survivors cowered in darkened rooms, praying and texting police and relatives, Mateen accessed his Facebook account to search for media reports, using search words such as “Pulse Orlando” and “Shooting.” An FBI source told FoxNews.com he also made 16 phone calls from inside the club after the bloody spree began. Investigators are tracking down each of the recipients of those calls.
Mateen proclaimed his hatred for Westerners in one Facebook post uncovered by Johnson’s committee.
“America and Russia stop bombing the Islamic state,” Mateen wrote.
This serves as a reminder that political correctness literally kills. We cannot sit idly by as unhinged ideologues make threats on social media and get a pass because it would be considered politically incorrect or racist. The Obama Administration has put forth a half-assed mantra – “If you see something, say something.” Well, I hope that people start really taking that to heart and don’t care who they offend – for all our sakes.
