Yesterday was the third anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub Shooting. It was also the first anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub Shooting to take place during the 2020 Presidential election season.
As such, every Democratic primary candidate felt it was necessary to memorialize on Twitter.
See if you can spot a theme:
Three years later, the horrific attack on Pulse Nightclub still shakes our nation to the core. A night that should have been a celebration of love and life was cut short by unspeakable terror. Today, we remember those we lost — including so many in the LGBTQ community. pic.twitter.com/vdNyZEjlRr

We remember the 49 lives lost to senseless gun violence and hate at the #Pulse nightclub in Orlando three years ago today. We must finally pass commonsense gun safety legislation, and continue the fight against hatred and bigotry in all its forms.

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

Three years ago today, a shooter armed with hate and semi-automatic weapons murdered 49 people at Pulse nightclub.
We must do more than remember the victims: We must fight to end gun violence, and refuse to accept homophobia, transphobia, and racism—wherever it takes root.

We lost their lives at #Pulse. In Congress, @repjohnlewis led us to take a seat on the House Floor until Republicans would stand up and do what’s right. They never did. We sat for over 26 hours to honor the victims of Pulse. Our work has never stopped. https://t.co/vqVU5Mksgj

Today we honor those lost at #Pulse. It wasn’t an attack on just one community–it was an attack on LGBTQ Americans, Latinx Americans, and Black Americans. It was an attack on people who look like me, and an attack on people who look nothing like me. It was an attack on all of us.

3 years ago, our LGBTQ community was targeted by a domestic terrorist at #Pulse. 49 innocent people lost their lives.
We must protect one another from senseless hate and terror. This means passing strict federal gun laws. Anything less is unacceptable.#HonorThemWithAction

Congressman Furry McSkateboard:
We gathered together this morning at the LGBTQ Memorial to remember the lives lost three years ago at Pulse and to commit to the fight for full equality. We will continue to be there for one another and ensure everyone is treated with dignity and respect. pic.twitter.com/V96h4S33Vm

Some fuck you’ve never heard of:
Today, the LGBTQ+ and Latinx communities are in my heart. Three years after #Pulse, we remember the 49 people taken too soon and #HonorThemWithAction. Every day, but especially today, we must recommit ourselves to ending gun violence in America.

And Senator Spartacus T-Bone:
Three years ago at #Pulse nightclub, we lost 49 lives to hate. I still hold the pain of this tragedy deep in my heart.
As president, I will end the NRA's reign & pass gun safety policy to save lives. We can—and we will—build a nation based on love & respect for one another.
— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) June 12, 2019
Notice something missing?
How about a reference to Islamic Terror or the fact that Omar Mateen pledged allegiance to ISIS.
He was investigated by the FBI prior to the shooting because he appeared to be radicalized on social media.
He was an Islamic terrorist through-and-through.
And the Federal government dropped the ball, allowing him to engage in his attack.
Nope, instead, we are treated to meaningless platitudes and useless bromides about some sort of generalized hate and inequality.
And Booker thought to use it to attack the NRA as well.
This is an extension of something I pointed out two years ago when a comic book was published that rewrote the Pulse shooting as something carried out by a Christian Republican NRA member angered at the sight of two men kissing, instead of a Muslim terrorist attacking a soft target.
George Orwell wrote:
“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”
Clearly, the Democrats are trying to rewrite history, memory-holing the truth behind the Pulse shooting so to weaponize it against the Republicans and Trump.
The media and the LGBT community is going to let the Democrats off the hook for this deliberate misinformation. For them, it’s better to maintain the narrative than it is to protect lives.

If you say something bad about the shooters fake religion you will end up in Facebook jail
Why does every tweet hit the exact same points? No individuality at all.
Must be in their religion.
And two weeks after the shooting, the murderer’s father was invited on stage with Hillary.
Dead J: All talking points are approved and distributed by the Commissariat of Truth of the Central Politburo of the Democrat Socialist Party.
Meanwhile, Erin Palette actually goes out and does something constructive (starts encouraging people to embrace self-defense and gun ownership, sets up a group to do so).
But they’ll never acknowledge it. That involves those nasty, nasty guns, and they can’t have that.
is it the guns that they hate, or the autonomy, and self direction, that guns empower, that they hate? (perhaps, “embrace the power of “AND”!, eh?)
It would be great to reply to each one of those tweets with a link to the Operation Blazing Sword page. And to Pink Pistols.
Been reading your guys’ blog for a few weeks now. Good stuff – keep up the work. We need more conservative voices out there.
As for the subject at hand, the left has a relationship with Muslims that will prove disastrous for this country. They can do no wrong in the Dems’ eyes.
