Siddique Mateen told ABC News that he didn’t notice anything unusual from his son Omar when the father saw him just hours before the terrorist attack on Pulse, a gay nightclub. The media is taking the father’s comments about his son’s alleged homophobia seriously – they like what he has to say.
They are ignoring the fact that he rails against the US and promotes the Taliban on his youtube channel. They are concluding he is just mentally ill and the son was mentally ill.
Aren’t all terrorists unbalanced and aren’t they all homophobes? Sharia demands the homophobia.
The Orlando gunman is just a common homophobe and his attack on innocents in a gay bar as he screamed “Allahu Akbar” had nothing to do with religion, Omar Mateen’s father said. The father has been quoted throughout the media but few balance that with his father’s affection for the Afghan Taliban.
Omar was a Democrat. If he were a Republican, we would hear nothing else.
In a video posted early Monday, Seddique Mateen says his son was well-educated and respectful to his parents, and that he was “not aware what motivated him to go into a gay club and kill 50 people.”
The elder Mateen says he was saddened by his son’s actions during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, but then he added, “God will punish those involved in homosexuality,” saying it’s, “not an issue that humans should deal with.”
Seddique Mir Mateen said his son was angry about two men kissing in front of his son recently and that is what led up to the attack.
How many people do you know who would get angry with gays kissing, buy guns and blow up a gay bar?
The father, so reputable as he is, said further that his son only became religious recently, though a classmate said it happened after 9/11. Omar was thrilled with the attack’s outcome and was expelled because of his expressed joy according to the classmate and sometimes friend.
By now, we all know Omar threatened to kill co-workers in the name of Islam and said he communicated with the American suicide bomber. The FBI investigated and dropped the cases in 2013 and 2014.
The father has a non-profit TV show “Durand Jirga Show” with youtube videos online, one of which denounces the Pakistani government and expresses gratitude towards the Afghan Taliban. He stated: “Our brothers in Waziristan, our warrior brothers in [the] Taliban movement and national Afghan Taliban are rising up. Inshallah the Durand Line issue will be solved soon.”
The father’s audience includes members of the Taliban Islamic extremist movement. Mateen’s show takes a decidedly Pashtun nationalistic, pro-Taliban slant and is full of anti-U.S. rhetoric and inflammatory language aimed at non-Pashtuns and at Pakistan, a source told CBS News’ Lara Logan.
CBS News is now pushing the Omar was just mentally ill and a homophobe narrative which the crazy father complements. They ignore the fact that he’s a terrorist who should be deported.
Hours before the Orlando attack, the father, pretending to be the president of Afghanistan – president of a provisional government, posted on his Facebook page. On the page, he ordered the arrest of multiple Afghan political figures.
Dressed in army attire, he stated: “I order national army, national police and intelligence department to immediately imprison Karzai, Ashraf Ghani, Zalmay Khalilzad, Atmar, and Sayyaf. They are against our countrymen, and against our homeland.”
To make matters worse, he visited the US State Department in April to discuss a border issue and was taken seriously as the media is taking him seriously now.
