|The father of the Orlando mass shooter was at a Clinton rally.|
Smells of desperation. The conservative outrage is once again in full stream over an unintentional moment in the campaign of Hillary Clinton. As passionate as these issues are, Republicans and their conservative allies will advocate distractions instead of solutions to the problem.
To blame others for the acts of one is usual of the agitators in the junk food media. They will find reason to fault the families of the victim or suspect.
This is the usual stuff that happens when Republicans are panicking and are losing hope in their chances at winning the U.S. presidency.
The Orlando massacre happened in June 2016. This was the deadliest mass shooting in American history. The terrorist who claimed that he was inspired by the Islamic State went into the Pulse Nightclub and lit the place up.
Over 49 people and the shooter were killed. The law and feds were stressed over how a man with a seemingly normal life became inspired to kill. He was an American born man who was a Muslim.
His attack on an Orlando nightclub hasn't moved the Congress to pass gun control laws. A few weeks later would be Dallas, Baton Rouge and numerous other mass shootings that haven't made the news.
We have become numb to mass shootings. We have become more cynical of Americans because of race, religion, sexuality, gender, nationality, economic and social class. We have become more outraged over things that happen in the news. And I believe that the news is driven by ratings and not partisan agendas.
Now the latest conservative outrage, the father of the terrorist attends a Clinton rally.
Cameras captured Seddique Mateen standing in the crowd. He later told a reporter for WPTV, a Palm Beach-based NBC affiliate, that he wanted to attend the rally as a member of the public and a Clinton supporter.
"Why should they be surprised? I love the United States, and I've been living here a long time," Mateen said.
The Clinton campaign said that the rally was a 3,000-person, open-door event for the public.
As Clinton speaks, he was spotted and photographed. Now the guilt by association soon follows Mateen and Clinton.
Mateen is calling for gun control and mental health screenings. His son was mentally disturbed and he said that he had no ties to the Islamic State.
Clinton met with victims' family and friends during a visit to Orlando in July.
In her speech Monday night, Clinton expressed support for the survivors of the attack and the loved ones of the 49 people who were killed.
"We can't ever let that kind of hatred and violence break the spirit and break the soul of any place in America," she said.
Now if you're devoted to smearing the Gold Star families like the Khans, complain about Seddique Mateen attending the Clinton rally, complain about Sybrina Fulton speaking at the DNC, having Christina Leinonen being called a "crisis actor" is typical of a Donald Trump and Mike Pence supporter.
So if you're Islamophobic, numb to gun violence in America, devoted blame others for the acts of one, listen to old fart Rush Limbaugh, watch "Softball Hannity" or read from internet creeper Matt Drudge, you're a Trump and Pence supporter.
