Blame-Shifters: Democrats Use #Orlando to Scapegoat Christians, GOP, NRA

Posted on | June 13, 2016 | 70 Comments


There is no limit to the Left’s shameful dishonesty:

Christian conservatives are responsible for the mass shooting at a gay bar in Orlando because they “created this anti-queer climate,” according to American Civil Liberties Union attorneys.
“You know what is gross — your thoughts and prayers and Islamophobia after you created this anti-queer climate,” ACLU staff attorney Chase Strangio tweeted on Sunday morning. . . .
Strangio — who “spend[s his] life fighting Christian homophobia while being loved & supported by [his] Muslim family” — and his colleagues connected the shooting back to Christians and Republican politicians who oppose gay marriage. “The Christian Right has introduced 200 anti-LGBT bills in the last six months and people blaming Islam for this,” Strangio tweeted. “No.”

This is a classic reversal of causation, as part of an attempt to deflect attention from what actually happened in Orlando, where the deadliest terror attack in the United States since 9/11 was committed by the son of a Taliban supporter whose hatred of homosexuals was clearly related to his Islamic beliefs. Democrats cannot let this be a story about the dangers of Islamic terrorism, a story that would be bad for Hillary Clinton and good for Donald Trump. Instead, the narrative is about “this anti-queer climate” Democrats can blame on Republicans and Christians. Never mind the facts. Never mind the reality that the so-called “200 anti-LGBT bills” are actually attempts to defend First Amendment rights against totalitarian efforts to deny freedom of conscience to businesses and individuals who do not agree with the radical agenda of the Left.

We see that the American Civil Liberties Union — which began as a Communist Party front group to defend the agents of Soviet-backed subversion — is now against “civil liberties,” insofar as those liberties involve the rights of Christians to live according to their faith.

“Democrats with bylines,” as Instapundit calls the dishonest journalists who peddle partisan propaganda, are also trying to blame the NRA for Orlando, because there is nothing liberals would enjoy more than to completely disarm American citizens, because depriving us of our Second Amendment rights is necessary to abolishing our First Amendment rights.

In Obama’s America, Muslims have rights, immigrants have rights and gay people have rights. The rest of us? We have no rights at all.

    Please let them. I dream about a future when one problem takes care of the other. And there is an obvious difference. One problem is increasing their number via immigration and breeding.

    The gun ghouls hump the fresh corpses, while the shooter was a state-approved professional.

    I’ve been yelling at the TV for a day and a half. I am so freaking SICK of this. I can’t even articulate it right now. Thanks for a great post that says what I can’t. (I’m still throwing crap at CNN.)

    It’s not only okay to call people queer, it’s required. We must celebrate the identity of spoiled rich white college girls who need some way to grab attention and piss off daddy without actually eliminating the possibility of marrying a hot guy.

    Incidentally, in addition to Milo calling out Islam apologists for endangering gays, Gateway Pundit just doubled down on that and came out as gay. I think this will go down in history as one of their defining moments, where some chose sanity and some didn’t.

    Didn’t know the NRA was colluding with Hillary Clinton. How many weapons has she supplied muslim terrorists in the middle east?

    What I want to know is, if ISIS are apparently so influenced by Christians, why do they spend so much time killing us?

    I second that – Prague is an enchanting city, and I do not use the word lightly.

    Also, in general I don’t like cities very much.

    Never let a crisis go to waste.

    Even if you caused it, or if it contradicts everything you say.

    It puzzles me that three of the most reliable progressive constituency groups, i.e. Jews, blacks and gays, strongly support the statist program.

    I would expect that if any groups feared a strong omnipotent and omnipresent central government, it would be those groups. If any groups favored a more libertarian “leave us the hell alone” policy, it should be them.

    I love Stefan. He’s very bright, very honest, and for an atheist he certainly has a lot of respect for Christianity.

    Don’t you know? ISIS murders Christians, because Christians invented homophobia, and ISIS stole the idea, plans to copyright it, and now has to eliminate the Christians so they won’t reveal the truth!
