OP-ED

At 4:30 pm, the “dead” are still apparently inside the night club – just like the kids reportedly left inside the Sandy Hook school. What – they didn’t take them to the hospital? Just like they didn’t take Prince to the hospital? Where’s the emergency protocol?

So what do we have here, in “the deadliest/worst mass shooting in US history” (as repeated over and over on the news) and “the deadliest/worst terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11” (snatching the title unceremoniously from San Bernardino)??

We have:

-“Omar Saddiqui Mateen,” Florida resident, born New York, parents from Afghanistan; reportedly anti-gay (so say his “parents”).

-Had an assault rifle and a handgun.

-Killed 50 people and injured 53 (as of now).

-Worked since 2007 as a security guard for G4S Security Solutions, which protects government buildings; had security clearance and was able to buy guns.

-Found to have bought a Glock handgun and long gun within the last few days, legally.

-Was on the FBI’s radar for his supposed ISIS sympathies, but … they didn’t connect the dots!

-Called 911 at 20 minutes into the attack and pledged allegiance to ISIS (over the phone) and also mentioned the “Boston bombers” as inspiration.

-Judged to have been “self radicalized” and a lone-wolf, home-grown terrorist.

-Fake-sounding witnesses, including one Luis Burbano, who said he put a “syringe” on someone – then corrected this to say he put a tourniquet on the victim.

-Fake-sounding officials, who seem like they are rattling off a script (they are), one of whom is State Senator Geraldine Thompson, who tells us she is the senator for the district that includes the Pulse night club “in Tallahassee” – Tallahassee? I thought it was in Orlando…

-Patty Sheehan, Orlando City Commissioner, telling us that there are already people raising money for the victims…

-Marco Rubio telling us that the “Islamic terrorists” will not win; and that homegrown terrorism is the biggest threat our country faces – his fear is that “we’re gonna see more of this”…

-Ridiculous footage that doesn’t show any dead people, any injured people, no EMTs, no ambulances, no triage tarps, and with the same two scenes of alleged victims being casually helped away from the scene (and, yes, one dumped into the back of a pick-up truck), played over and over again on the news.

-President Obama in another heart-wrenching statement to the press, proclaiming this to be “an act of terror and an act of hate”; directing flags on government buildings and ships (around the world) to be flown at half staff until the night of June 16.

-And, of course, the shooter conveniently killed by the police, with only one officer sustaining a hit – but luckily the bullet was deflected by his kevlar helmet…

That’s right. A staged attack. Fake. With a multi-purpose agenda. Just like all the others.
