We need to stand up and start fighting back against the hate of the religious extremist and the Republican party.
Disturbing news out of California:
In the midst of Pride month, a disturbing incident marred the inclusive spirit as fliers containing derogatory remarks about the LGBTQ+ community were discovered on multiple cars outside a Target store.
According to Ashley Rawson, a person who received one of the fliers, they spent a brief period of time in the Target store before discovering the offensive flyer on their car’s windshield upon returning.
Rawson reportedly observed that at least two rows of cars in the vicinity had also been targeted with the same flyer attached to their windshields. KRCR interviewed an anonymous Target employee who claimed they had received verbal backlash after the display of Pride merchandise.
A new video surfaced yesterday that further shows ISIS’ acknowledgment of Omar Mateen as one of their own, and glorifying his heinous attacks against gays in Pulse nightclub on June 12th that killed 48 people and wounded over 50 others.
The video shows images of San Francisco landmarks, the Golden Gate Bridge, Financial District and Powell Street. After the showing the Bay area images comes the message:
“Arise, o Muslims and kill the unbelievers in their own homes.”
Police believe this new video aims to encourage pro-ISIS people to wage violence against the LGBT community.
Security analyst, and former FBI agent, Jeff Harp said, “…San Francisco stands for a lot of things. Freedom and pride … So it could be that they have decided to lash out at San Francisco for that.”
The Washington Times reported that the video footage ended with the scenes where US President Barack Obama and French President Francois Hollande paid tribute to the Orlando massacre victims.
The FBI says it is aware of the video but can’t or won’t confirm its validity.
