Mateen’s confession is not a ‘distraction’; it is the essence

By now you will have been made aware that Attorney General Loretta Lynch was forced to issue the unedited transcript of Omar Mateen calling Orlando 9-1-1.

The new transcript still replaces the Muslim god “Allah” with God:

2:35 a.m.: Shooter contacted a 911 operator from inside Pulse. The call lasted approximately 50 seconds, the details of which are set out below:

(OD) Orlando Police Dispatcher

(OM) Omar Mateen

OD: Emergency 911, this is being recorded.

OM: In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficent [Arabic]

OD: What?

OM: Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of God [Arabic]. I wanna let you know, I’m in Orlando and I did the shootings.

OD: What’s your name?

OM: My name is I pledge of allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi of the Islamic State.

OD: Ok, What’s your name?

OM: I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may God protect him [Arabic], on behalf of the Islamic State.

OD: Alright, where are you at?

OM: In Orlando.

OD: Where in Orlando?

[End of call.]

It is hard to know what would have been left of this transcript if the references to Islam had been removed.

Said Breitbart, quoting Lynch:

“What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch declared Sunday, before the administration reversed its decision.

Again and again the liberal (I use that word with irony) communities refuse to grasp the meaning of the events in Orlando: falsely claiming the massacre is about gun control, or Islamophobia (why would you not be afraid?),that  it is about anything than what it really concerns: the Islamic admonition to assert the social codes expected by Islam anywhere, in any country, regardless of citizenship. As Ayaan Hirsi Ali calls it, it is the admonition by the Prophet to punish what is wrong and assert what is right. No oath of obligation to a country is binding to a Muslim. Citizenship is irrelevant.

An example of this distraction is  given by Fred Litwin, the gay conservative, in why he chose not to attend the LGBTQ-whatever vigil for Orlando victims:

Not one speaker at either rally spoke about Islamism, the murderous ideology raging throughout the Muslim world. Surely everybody knew that Mateen had claimed allegiance with ISIS. Don’t they know that ISIS regularly throws gay people off of buildings. Why wasn’t this mentioned?

Google the terms “Orlando anything but Islam”, and a rich supply of articles will appear.

You do not have to approve of gay marriage, gay sex or gay anything: you are only required not to go about killing people for being or acting gay. Is that too much to ask? Apparently it is, for the religion of peace.

As to the Obama regime, they give reason to believe that Trump was right when he said Obama was more  angry at him for drawing attention to Obama’s failure to use the words Islamic terrorism than he was with Omar Mateen for killing fifty-odd people.

But the real horror is the Obama regime’s  belief that, like Oceania in 1984, the historical record can be successfully changed. That anyone could have entertained that discussion inside the White House for ten seconds shows how far gone they are. It took me a second or so to realize quite how outrageous that kind of thinking is: that they could do this a get away with it.
