On Monday, Democratic presidential presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton’s social media manager Emily Bengtson told the National Rifle Association to “F*** off,” in response to the devastating radical Islamic terror attack that left at least 49 people dead and 53 others injured at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
Bengtson was quoting a tweet issued by the NRA, which linked to an article addressing how gun laws to do not deter terrorists, in contrast to the Left’s false narrative.
Notably, this classy young lady spewed her venom at the NRA and not the radical Islamist, Omar Mateen, who massacred 49 members of the LGBT community—which Bengtson happens to be a part of.
Nor was anger directed at the Islamic State, the terror group to whom the murderer pledged his allegiance during the attack.
She also neglected to issue a “F*** off” to the murderer’s father who declared that God will “punish” all homosexuals hours following the slaughter.
Further, Bengtson felt compelled to ridicule American Christians who offered their condolences to the LGBT community in the wake of the attack; she lovingly informed them that their “words mean shit.”
“If you're tweeting condolences about Orlando but don't advocate for LGBT rights and gun control, your words don't mean shit to me,” wrote Bengtson.
She also retweeted a user who told former Gov. Mike Huckabee: "I don't want your prayers. You are a bigot who has publicly hated our community for decades. Pray for yourself."
Huckabee's crime? He offered for others to join he and his wife in prayer for those murdered in Orlando. "Please join Janet and me in praying for the victims of the Orlando attack and their families," he said.
The nerve of that guy.
Bengtson did, however, express solidarity with American Muslims, while simultaneously slapping presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for addressing the demonstrable real threat of radical Islamic terrorism.
"As LGBT folks grieve, we need to stand up as allies to Muslim Americans," wrote the social media manager. "Trump is trying to turn us against each other. We can't let him."
As the article posted by the NRA suggests, terrorists are indeed not deterred by more gun control legislation, making it all the more clear that Berngston’s anger is wildly misdirected.
“Radical Islamic terrorists are not deterred by gun control laws. The San Bernardino terrorist attack wasn’t stopped by California’s so-called ‘assault weapons’ ban,” explains Chris Cox in USA Today. “The gun ban in Brussels didn’t prevent the terrorist attack there. And France’s strict gun control didn’t stop the two attacks in Paris, committed with fully-automatic rifles and grenades.”
Cox adds, “Repeating the same thing but expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.”
