“Guns aren’t the problem. Radical Islam is the problem”

I’m currently in Florida, a state which has become scene to the largest mass shooting slaughter in American history. Fifty dead and 53 injured at the hands of terrorist Omar Mateen, a US citizen of Afghani heritage. 

As soon as news broke of the terrorist attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando, media and political elites took to social media to control the narrative following the massacre.

They want you to believe the slaughter is a signal of the need for stricter gun control.

But here’s the thing:

Bars in Florida are gun free zones.

Using liberal logic, then, Pulse nightclub is as controlled an environment as it gets and no attack ought to have ever taken place there.

Truth is: Guns aren’t the problem, radical Islam is the problem. But, when it comes to jihad being carried out in the west, the chattering classes operate on a policy of “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

After the Islamic State issued a pre-Ramadan message for supporters to attack soft-targets in America, are we to believe the timing of this attack is just coincidence?

And is the fact the attack took place at a gay bar coincidence, too? Considering homosexuality is punishable by death in several countries in the Middle East, I think not.

And, taking into account the fact that over 90% of people Pew polled from such regions think homosexuality ought not be tolerated, there’s more to this story than the establishment media and politicians would have you believe.

A clash of civilizations has arrived on our doorstep — Islamic hate for homosexuals and a freedom-loving western worldview.

Of course there are good Muslims who value our pluralistic societal structure, but there are others who hate gays, Jews, and uncovered women, too.

And the fallout after the Orlando attacks shows Muslim feelings matter more than gay lives in the pecking order for the politically correct.

When will we in the West be free to discuss the underlying issues of political Islam and its hateful mindset?

After 9/11, Fort Hood, Boston, San Bernardino, and now Orlando: how many must die before we move the debate from under the haze of political correctness that now clouds the respectful dialogue we owe to the dead?

If Islam is the religion of peace, why aren’t its extremists extremely peaceful?

Because Islam doesn’t have a peace problem. It has a hate and violence problem.

And it’s about damn time we start talking about it.
