Democrat Senators and Their False Claims About Pulse Nightclub Massacre

Linkedin Share

On the anniversary of the Pulse Night Club massacre, in which 49 people were murdered, three Democrat Senators lied about why it happened to push the radical gay agenda.

Senators Dick Durbin, Tammy Duckworth, and Cory Booker all pushed the lie that the massacre was because of “gun violence” that targeted gays. Both these claims are false.

First the lies:

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) tweeted: “5 years ago, we lost 49 people in a deadly, hate-filled shooting at the Pulse nightclub. The LGBTQ+ community was targeted and killed—all because they dared to live their lives. Once again I say: hate has no place here. And we must end the gun violence epidemic.”

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) added: “Today we #RememberPulse. 49 lives lost to senseless gun violence and anti-LGBTQ hate. A tragedy that is still hard to comprehend. But tomorrow, with Pulse always in our minds, we continue the fight to end gun violence and hatred. We will not rest until we do.”

And Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) also said: “5 years ago we lost 49 beautiful souls at Pulse nightclub. I continue to hold in my heart those who were killed, their loved ones & the survivors of this unspeakable act of hate toward the #LGBTQ+ community. We must #EndGunViolence & build a nation based on love for each other.”

All of these are lies. The Pulse Nightclub shooting had nothing to do with any of that. It wasn’t “America’s gun violence.” It also wasn’t about hate for gays.

The man who unleashed hell at the Pulse Nightclub was Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old man who had pledged allegiance to ISIS. This was a jihadi terror attack. It had nothing to do with gays or guns. It was perpetrated because of radical Islamism.

Even FBI investigators said that Mateen was a jihadi.

So, characterizing this mass murder as one targeting gays or a result of “gun violence” is a lie. And these Democrats are fully aware of that. But they prefer to push the lies.

Sadly, truth is not a left-wing value.
