What are you, against freedom of religious expression? :-xO_o:-x
IS propaganda is akin to yelling "fire" in a crowded theater and inciting violence is illegal (Dennis v. US).

The goal of anti-child porn laws is to protect children because they are the intended victims. Americans should have the same protections against a group whose goals are to infringe upon our rights to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

A pretty good timeline of the events.

It has two officers arriving at 2:04 (2 min. after), but they don't enter. 6-7 officers went in at 2:08 (6 min.). 2:18 is when the SWAT callout was initiated. Officers pinned him in the back by 2:22. The first SWAT officers to enter the club are listed at 2:45.

The autopsy report's out. The shooter took 8 rounds.

Autopsy: Pulse shooter Omar Mateen shot eight times

Mateen was likely not shot at close range, the autopsy report suggested. Most of the bullets went through and through and the majority entered his body from front to back, suggesting he was shot while facing police, likely during the standoff.

The toxicology report indicated Mateen was not under the influence of alcohol or illicit drugs the night of the shooting.

Is anyone really surprised? 50% of Muslims in the UK believe that homosexuality should be illegal.

They hate women. They hate gays. And yet the lefties have a love affair with the religion of pieces. Problem is they also love anything to do with LGBT, so they must be going through some serious cognitive dissonance right now. Though I'm sure a bit of the usual denial will help them through this.
"You're hateful, insensitive and a bigot! " -lefty media and zombee followers- ;)

We just prosecuted the first and second guy for possessing and distributing ISIS material.

One of them walked into the US Consulate with an ISIS t shirt and asked, "this place bomb proof?" Which if it weren't so serious would sound like a bad satire.

Homegrown terror: 'Isis is here'
NZ is going to regret it's liberal immigration policies sooner or later, just like Europe is now.
Aussie warned us repeatedly years ago.

The Mateen family. The gift that keeps on giving. :rolleyes:
Noor Salman trial: Pulse gunman's father revealed as FBI informant, but judge won't dismiss case

According to a motion filed by Salman’s lawyers, the defense team learned of Seddique Mateen’s work for the FBI on Saturday, in an email from prosecutor Sara Sweeney. Sweeney said the elder Mateen had been an FBI source “at various points” between January 2005 and June 2016. Seddique Mateen was on prosecutors’ witness list but they rested their case last week without calling him to testify.
Sweeney also revealed that FBI agents investigating the shooting found receipts for money transfers to Turkey and Afghanistan between March 16, 2016, and June 5, 2016. On June 10, Omar Mateen searched for cheap tickets to Istanbul.
Omar Mateen opened fire inside Pulse nightclub on June 12, 2016, killing 49 people.

Salman’s defense lawyers suggested his father sending money to Turkey and Afghanistan indicates Omar Mateen might have planned to travel to one of the countries to join a terrorist organization.
And Chop's personal favorite part of the shitshow...er story....

Martin, the FBI special agent who oversaw Seddique Mateen as an informant after transferring to the FBI’s Miami division in 2006, also testified Monday about investigating Omar Mateen after co-workers at the security firm G4S reported in 2013 that Mateen had made comments about being connected to Al Qaeda, Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Martin had Mateen’s supervisor wear a concealed recording device. It didn’t capture him making such statements again, Martin said.
Martin, along with other law enforcement, later interviewed the younger Mateen three times at his apartment. Salman was home all three times, the agent testified.
Mateen admitted making the comments but said he did so because he felt harassed at work.
Martin said he considered trying to develop Mateen as an informant, like his father, after finding he didn’t have ties to terrorism. Omar Mateen would later claim allegiance to the Islamic State group in conversations with an Orlando police crisis negotiator as he carried out the mass shooting at Pulse.

So if you’re FBI informant you can get away with murder? Whitey Bulger did.
