50 killed in shooting at Florida nightclub in possible act of Islamic terror

by FoxNews.com  |  published on June 13, 2016

A gunman who pledged allegiance to ISIS opened fire early Sunday morning in a packed Orlando nightclub, killing 50 people and wounding at least 53 more in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack Sunday afternoon via its Amaq news agency, Reuters reported. Amaq said an “Islamic State fighter” carried out the assault. It was not clear, however, if the shooting was actually directed by the terror group or only inspired by it.

The attack in Orlando at Pulse, which bills itself as “the hottest gay bar” in the city and was packed with more than 300 people for “Latin Night,” was reported minutes after 2 a.m. Sunday.

It ended hours later when police stormed the building and killed the shooter.

    Possible ?? Possible ??? What idiot wrote this crap?

    One evil attacking another. What are the liberals going to do? Two of their little “protected groups” are going at it. They won’t know who to root for.

    • NyukNyuk2000

      If anyone deserves to be shot, it’s bigots like you!!!! I hope you get sick and die!!!!!!!

  • used_to_be_a_liberal

    What do you mean possible. It was an attack by Islam on gays, next time it will be another of their pet peeve causes. This p o s even stopped shooting while he called 911, told them what he was doing, and said it was for Islam.
    Possible??? my butt.

    The 2 loves of Obammys life, Gay, transgender and Homosexual lifestyle, and Muslims. Which way will he turn. Against the Guns. The gun could not shoot if the Muslim did not pull the trigger

  • Jerry

    Not possible, WAS!! an act of terrorism, Incited by the father of Isis Obammy

  • onefour

    this only the beginning. It’s going to get worse because of Obama and Congress allowing people that have not been vetted into this country. We now have Terrorists that are home grown and imported. The killing of homosexuals are what Muslims do. It’s part of the teachings of the Koran.

    You know I have to say I’m sorry about the rant. This stuff pisses me off to no end. There are to many families suffering because of liberal policies. This is not because of guns. Common sense should prevail not ideology. These families are having a very hard time and these idiots in charge want to use them for an agenda. As far as I’m concerned this crap should be against the law. Pray for these families please. To have to bury a child, parent, spouse or friend because of evil like this should not happen to anyone.

  • justinwachin

    This should be problematic for liberals who are sympathetic to Islam and to homosexuality.

    The issue is that an ISIS sympathizer murdered 49 people. Shame on those who are trying to spin this into an event to advance the gay agenda.

  • Dolores Adams

    He attacked this place because he doesn’t like homos. Why didn’t he go after obummer, he’s a homo, I’ve heard. Ever hear of bathhouse barry?

  • Worried Vet

    This article is disgusting. Possible my butt he called 911 before this massacre. How much more proof does these idiots need? They wonder what’s wrong with this country the truth is right in front of their faces and they spin it for their own agenda. Pretty messed up.

  • Rodney Steward

    What’s smells funny, is this POS has been on the FBI’s watch list since 2013, and has made 2 trips to Saudi Arabia, and the list goes on and on, and he continued to fall through the CRACKS as they report! NO WAY a WHITE true AMERICAN could fall through ANY CRACK by the FEDS! This is the kind of SH$T that Obama wants on our streets! REMOVE OBAMA!!!!!!!!

    • Worried Vet

      Yep he signed executive orders to allow for this.

  • Holy Joe

    “Possible Act of Islamic Terror.” What an asinine remark even from the Muslim at the White House. Just think and reconsider that Liberal Fools voted for him to be President not once – but twice – and once again they are considering making the Muslim Supporting “Bibi” Binte-Clinton as their new puerile Islamic bought and paid for Candidate for our Presidency. Reject both Obama and Binte Clinton.

    • Worried Vet

      We have to because if we don’t God help us.

  • TexRancher

    “Possible Act of Terror”? Is WAPO nuts or part of they just plain ObamaBots covering for him? This Headline at best is just plain STUPID!

  • Worried Vet

    Pray for the families having to deal with this. I’m sure there are parents who lost a child in this horrible event. No parent should ever have to bury a child. I wish we could fix that so parents wouldn’t have to. Maybe they should spend time on money something like that instead of spending so much to run for office, to bring these ilegals on and take care of them. It’s sad we are the best country in the world, we used to be first in almost everything now we are sucking hind tit. How far have we fallen allowing this BS to continue. It’s a disgrace to our ancestors who came to this country legal and learned the American way. They became Americans with hard work. My grandmother didn’t give up her heritage but she learned to be American. Hell she never lost her accent from Ireland and it was great training for me as adult in the Navy. It’s OK to allow people to come here ,but do it right not take away from the legal ones. It seems now days it’s all about hurry up and self gratification. Look where that has gotten us. No morals period few churches who fight back against this. Their scared of an audit now that isn’t right but it’s what we have until we make them change it. Our military has their balls tied because of the rules of engagement and that puts their lives in danger. Either sissys in charge don’t care or its fear we can’t borrow money. We are so beholding to many scary countries we can’t say boo to them. They continue to walk all over us. Most of these banks don’t like us so what happens when the blank checks stop folks? I learned about the great depression in college but I learned much more from family who lived through it. They say their time will be a picnic. Compared to ours. At least back then they could print money for helping we can’t print money without kissing some country’s ass. I don’t like that situation.makes me feel like a caged animal, and what happens with caged animals? It’s not pretty. So Congress here is fair warning. When the bottom falls out. And we’re hungry my grandkids are hungry guess who’s coming to your house for dinner. The first sigh of my family starving because of your greedy asses I’m coming to you for a loan. Food stamps won’t be any good stores will. Be out. I’m also talking about my dogs when there hungry I’m coming to see you. You see I love my four dogs and I will protect them like my kids. Now I’m not the only one who fills like I do. I pray in a few days we have several thousands gun toten people who feel like me. So when were all hungry we come see you.

      If your screen name is correct let me thank you for your service, the blood of each and every one of those people is on Obamas hands, he fails to call it as it is. The night club was/is a gun free zone due to orlandos ordinances, if people were allowed to carry maybe it would have saved some lives, the freaking HNIC is using this to attack gun rights and not where the blame belongs radical island, ISIS, the freaking ragheads, it’s kind of ironic that one of obamas special groups attacked another one of his special groups and the shooter was after all a democrat, a third one of his special groups, if the lgbt wouldn’t be fighting so hard to be superior to the straight people maybe they wouldn’t be in the headlines everyday and maybe this wouldn’t have happened? He wants to make a bigger deal out of the bathroom issue then the terrorist islam issue, the bathroom issue isn’t killing thousands of people every day like ISIS is, what a bullshit president worthless democratic panty waste like this Islamic terrorist

      • Worried Vet

        Your welcome. I think that’s the issue to keep lgbt in the news so people don’t really know what’s going on with Isis. That we are allowing thousands into this country. I wonder sometimes if this isn’t a take over by an invisible force. I don’t understand how any of these minorities would even think it’s OK for this to happen. Sharia law is not fair and it’s very evil towards gays and minorities. I am amazed how many don’t pay attention after fighting so long to be equal. Their winning and losing at the same time.

        • Rodney Steward

          I believe Obama has used the lgbt for a set up, as a BIG bulls eye on their back, and seems to be working! Morning friend, did U get some rest last night!! 🙂
