Duchess64 your attempts to make the debate personal with this caustic diatribe is tedious, predictable, plastic and logically fallacious.

The idiotic troll Robbie Carrobie attempts another of his countless flagrantly dishonest distortions.
As usual, Robbie Carrobie ignores and dismisses all the evidence showing that he's wrong.
I already am aware that Omar Mateen claimed to have killed on behalf of ISIS.
I have *not* disputed the fact that he made that claim. Based upon ample evidence,
however, I would dispute the truth of his claim. If Omar Mateen had claimed to have killed
on behalf of the Jehovah's Witnesses, would Robbie Carrobie accept his claim at face value?
I would submit that if ISIS knew all the evident facts about Omar Mateen, including that
he was a gay man, a heavy drinker, and a claimed member of Hezbollah, then ISIS would
have executed him if possible. One of my points is that Omar Mateen had a record of
making false claims. According to the FBI, there's no evidence that Omar Mateen ever
was a member of Hezbollah. Likewise, I know of no convincing evidence that Omar Mateen
ever had any *serious* allegiance to ISIS.
By the way, even FishHead111, an extreme right-wing Islamophobic American, has
apparently conceded that Omar Mateen was motivated to kill more by personal reasons
concerning his homosexuality than by anything else.
