The worst shooting in US history - and the bloodiest attack since September 11th 2001 - occurred at a gay nightclub. The attack itself could have been prevented, and it is certainly the symptom of political correctness run amok, but it also reflects the indifference of progressives.
Progressives are no friend of the gays. Most conservatives, while opposed to gay marriage, will tolerate them as long as they keep things private and in between consenting adults. Libertarians believe that the state should not be involved in any type of marriage. Progressivist attitudes toward gays has historically been hostile, with the Soviet Union sending gays to the gulag, the Hitler's National Socialists executing them and the Cubans performing experiments on them to try and "cure" gayness.
Even the cultural marxists see gays as a means to an end - usually as a voting bloc - and nothing more. Both economic and cultural marxists support the disarmament of citizens - both gay and straight - while simultaneously apologizing for violent jihadists and advocating open borders. Already, Hillary Clinton has called for disarmament, as well as democratic senators.
Presumptive Democratic nominee pledges to fight for LGBT community’s “right to live freely”
Hillary Clinton echoed President Barack Obama’s statements on Sunday, calling the Orlando mass shooting “an act of terror” and “an act of hate.”
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee went on to blame easily accessed guns as part of the problem that led to the massacre, which left 50 dead and 53 wounded.
“We need to keep guns like the ones used last night out of the hands of terrorists or other violent criminals,” she said in a statement issued on Sunday.
