OpEd: Three years of whitewashing the jihadism driving the Pulse nightclub terror
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following opinion editorial written by Tiana Lowe and published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
Three years ago, a vile jihadist terrorist shot up Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla., murdering 49 innocents, nearly all gay men.
For the past three years, our media betters have continued to disrespect their memories. Not many admit it was an act of terrorism, and even fewer admit that it was radical Islamism that fueled the monster’s raging homophobia.
The article goes on to state the following:
Or if you’re a Democrat, you sideline the homophobia and put gun control center stage.
The Pulse massacre wasn’t a failure of gun control. The terrorist had no criminal record, passed required psychological exams and background checks, and obtained both his firearms license and security officer license for his job.
In her opinion editorial, Lowe shares tweets from several Democrat leaders calling for “gun control”, and concludes with the following:
To ignore the specific strain of hate that motivated the attack and deny calling it what it was (terrorism) is to whitewash the tragedy that befell the 49 victims slain that night at Pulse. They deserve better.
Countless lives forever changed.
Three years after the Pulse shooting, it’s long past time to act to end the epidemic of gun violence in America. #PrideMonth

When 49 people were murdered at Pulse three years ago, it was an attack on our LGBTQ+ and Latinx communities. Today I’m remembering the victims and their loved ones, and I promise to #HonorThemWithAction by continuing to fight for #GunReformNow. pic.twitter.com/bxrCRLx6bp

My most painful moments during the @BarackObama administration were spent with families of victims of our gun violence epidemic. Let’s all support this effort. @onePULSEorg

Today we remember the 49 lives — mostly Latinx and LGBTQ+ — cut short from hate and gun violence three years ago. In their memory, let’s act to prevent the next heartbreak.
