You’ll Never Guess Who The Orlando Terrorist’s Father Supports

In a piece of information that surprises no one, we find out that the Orlando terrorist’s father was a passionate supporter of the Taliban. So much so that he made countless videos and broadcast them online. Read on for details.

From the Washington Post:

The father of Omar Mateen, identified by police as the man behind the carnage at an Orlando nightclub early Sunday morning, is an Afghan man who holds strong political views, including support for the Afghan Taliban. In a video he posted on Saturday, he appears to be portraying himself as the president of Afghanistan.

Seddique Mateen, who has been referred to as Mir Seddique in early news reports, hosted the “Durand Jirga Show” on a channel called Payam-e-Afghan, which broadcasts from California. In it, the elder Mateen speaks in the Dari language on a variety of political subjects. He doesn’t always make much sense. Dozens of videos are posted on a channel under Seddique Mateen’s name on YouTube.

On Sunday morning, Mateen told NBC News that his son’s rampage “has nothing to do with religion.” Instead, he offered another possible motive. He said his son got angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami a few months ago. He said his son was especially enraged because the kissing took place in front of his own young son.

“We are saying we are apologizing for the whole incident. We weren’t aware of any action he is taking. We are in shock like the whole country,” Mateen said.

Mateen could not be reached for comment by The Washington Post. His cellphone has been switched off.

His son’s rampage has everything to do with his radicalized religious and political beliefs. The Orlando killer actually called 911 to pledge his allegiance to ISIS. We are not in the dark about his motivation. Yes, he was “enraged” by seeing two men kissing, as his father said. And when that rage was acted upon by slaughtering 50 patrons of a gay nightclub, he was simply following the teachings of the Koran. THAT is religious motivation. It is radical Islamic adherents in nations around the world that kill homosexuals in whatever barbaric way they can think of; stoning, throwing them off buildings, hanging them from cranes, beheading. Yes, his killing spree was religiously motivated no matter what anyone says.
