I’ve been working on a longer post about the massive disinformation response to the Orlando shooting and have come to a conclusion that needs to be said sooner than later.
I have watched in awe as the media has gone off the rails to explain how a shooter who pledged allegiance to ISIS and was yelling “Allah Akbar” while pulling the trigger wasn’t motivated by Islam, but was instead motivated by Islamophobia, toxic masculinity, and the NRA.
We are about to get hit by a perfect shit storm of anti-gun, social justice, and liberal intolerance, and will have to be work hard to make sure our rights survive it.
There is one insidious theme that has run through all the Op-Eds I’ve forced myself to read in a progressive coprophagic gavage, is this:
The NRA/GOP/Conservatives will not “do something” in response to the Orlando shooting to
prevent the next shooting reinstate the AWB/impose restrictive gun control because we are a bunch of intolerant *Christian* homophobes and we range from not caring about to being overwhelmed with joy that more than 100 gay men and women were injured or killed early Sunday morning.
We are going to get beat over the head by a one-two punch combo of anti-gun emotional platitudes and accusations of anti-homosexual/transgender bigotry. The murder of 50 young gay men and women is exactly the type of scenario to embolden the Social Justice Warriors of Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr to go for blood.
