Omar Mateen, the terrorist who killed over 50 people in a gay club in Orlando, Florida, earlier today, is now known to have called emergency services and pledged allegiance to ISIS before he committed the atrocity. As the New York Post reports, Omar Mateen had committed himself to ISIS before carrying out the bloodiest mass murder on US soil in history at a gay nightclub federal officials said, according to California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat Congressman on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, told CNN.
According to Washington Post, the ex-wife of the 29-year-old Afghan born shooter said he was violent and mentally unstable and beat her repeatedly while they were married. The ex-wife said she met Omar Mateen online about eight years ago and decided to move to Florida and marry him. At first, the marriage was normal, she said, but then he became abusive.
(UPDATE: After logging off last night we learned the Orlando attacker was in fact born in New York to Afghan parents - apologies for the error, our sources for breaking are 24 hour news feeds and it is difficult to verify details given in early reports of major news stories)
“He was not a stable person,” said the ex-wife, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because she feared for her safety in the wake of the mass shooting. “He beat me. He would just come home and start beating me up because the laundry wasn’t finished or something like that.”
Mir Seddique, the Afghan father of Mateen, said it is intolerance of homosexuality, and not affiliations with ISIS or any other terror group fanatical supporters of Islam, that likely provoked the attack. "This has nothing to do with religion," he told NBC, stating that he was “in shock like the whole country.”
He went on to relate a “recent incident” that demonstrated his son’s attitudes. "We were in Downtown Miami, Bayside, people were playing music. And he saw two homosexuals kissing each other in front of his wife and kid and he got very angry. They were kissing each other and touching each other and he said, 'Look at that. In front of my son they are doing that.' And then we were in the men's bathroom and men were kissing each other."
It is difficult to say that any good can come of such and incident, but if this outrage serves as a warning to 'liberals' (particularly the pair in The White House who are obsessed with gay and transgender rights) that it is sheer folly for a nation apparently determined to elevate gays and lesbians to the status of an elite caste to be equally enthusiastic about importing followers of a religious group in which homosexuality is not tolerated.
