In the case of the Orlando shooter, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.
The father of the shooter attempted to blame the massacre on a disgust towards gays, which liberals quickly jumped on to blame anything except Islam for the carnage. These liberals should know that in their desperation to sugarcoat Islamic extremism, they cited a Taliban sympathizer for that information.
Shooter Omar Mateen’s father is an Afghan who supports the Taliban and ran for President of Afghanistan. The Orlando gay club jihad mass murderer’s father says his son got angry when he saw two men in Miami kissing, but that it has nothing to do with religion. His hatred is islamic. But the media is reporting it as proof that it’s not islamic. The media considers a Taliban supporter a credible witness?
The father of Omar Mateen, identified by police as the man behind the carnage at an Orlando nightclub early Sunday morning, is an Afghan man who holds strong political views, including support for the Afghan Taliban.
Seddique Mateen, who has been referred to as Mir Seddique in early news reports, hosted a television show called Durand Jirga on a channel called Payam-e-Afghan, which broadcasts from California. In it, the elder Mateen speaks in the Dari language on a variety of political subjects. Dozens of videos are posted on a channel under Seddique Mateen’s name on YouTube. A phone number and post office box that are displayed on the show were traced back to the Mateen home in Florida. Mateen also owns a non-profit organization under the name Durand Jirga which is registered in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
In one video, Mateen expresses gratitude towards the Afghan Taliban, while denouncing the Pakistani government.
“Our brothers in Waziristan, our warrior brothers in Taliban movement, and national Afghan Taliban are rising up,” he says. “Inshallah the Durand line issue will be solved soon.”
How many more attacks do we have to endure before we realize that Islam is the problem?
