Sorry John but you are wrong

John Key has blamed Orlando’s killings on a lack of gun control. He’s completely and utterly wrong and buying into the lies being promulgated by Hillary Clinton about FBI watch lists.

Prime Minister John Key says the United States should be asking itself tough questions about gun control after the Orlando shootings rather than leaping into anti-Muslim rhetoric.

Mr Key said he hoped anti-Muslim comments such as those by presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump would not escalate the situation.

“This is the time for the United States to ask itself difficult questions about why there are so many attacks of this nature using weapons.

That’s been a longstanding debate about gun control and the proliferation of guns in the United States, and you certainly wouldn’t want to turn it into an issue about people’s religion or ethnic beliefs.”

Mr Key was not surprised Mr Trump had made comments about Islamic radicalism, saying it had been a big part of Mr Trump’s campaign.

“I don’t think any of us should be very surprised he’s beating that drum today.”

Mr Trump has been criticised for saying he did not want congratulations for being proved right in predicting there would be more such attacks and called for a ban on travel to the US by people from any country that had been implicated in previous attacks on the US.

Mr Key said it was not for him to critique the campaigns.

“This is the biggest attack we’ve seen for some period of time [but] there has been an ongoing series of people mis-using weapons and of these kind of attacks in the United States.”

Except he just did…and he is wrong.

The left-wing are pushing the homophobic attack line, without realising that they are saying what many have known: that Islam is toxic to homosexuals.

The claims about gun control are also false. This is a man who has been radicalised. The facts are these:

  1. A visiting imam to the local mosque called on execution of gays some weeks before the attack
  2. Omar Mateen was a devout wife-beating Muslim, who also professed to hating gays
  3. Omar Mateen rang the FBI prior to the attack to claim it on behalf of ISIS
  4. ISIS claimed the attack
  5. Omar Mateen had gay dating apps on his cellphone and frequented gay nightclubs…there is a good chance he was himself gay
  6. He bought several firearms legally after proper and legal background checks by the gun store.

What isn’t true is that tighter gun control would have stopped this. Hillary Clinton asks how a person on the FBI watch list could have bought a gun, without then admitting that Omar Mateen wasn’t on any watch list because, if he was, the background checks would have failed him. The FBI have even stated that he wasn’t on the watch list.

By focussing on homophobia, when there is a good chance the shooter himself was gay, is silly and wrong, other than to highlight that Omar Mateen’s religion of choice hates gays and therefore, by extension, he came to hate himself so much that he killed himself and 49 others in that belief.

Ignoring the impact of a 7th century religion of hate ignores the real problem. He was intent on killing and would have found another way but killed nonetheless. Gun control has nothing to do with this and, yet again, the politicians and complicit media are ignoring the clear and present danger that Islam presents to our western lifestyle. They might not think we are in a war, but the extremist Muslims most definitely know they are in a war…and they are winning because of our weakness in confronting the truth.

John Key is wrong. He needs to wake up and smell the coffee.
