BREAKING: Orlando Shooter’s Prayer Leader Reveals He Is Pro-Trump (VIDEO)


In a surprising new revelation about the Orlando shooter suspect, we’re now finding out that the killer’s imam, or prayer leader, is pro-Trump.

In Florida, a reporter for WPTV has gathered this unexpected statement from the Imam, Shafiq Rahman:

“I don’t think that it would be that much scary and dangerous for the Muslims as people think.  It would have some good effects too.”

The reporter, Meghan McRoberts, said in a tweet that having Trump in office may shift some of the anger away from Muslims.

It can’t be confirmed how much of the Trump ideology was picked up by the shooter himself, but let’s just say I wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

Think about it – Trump represents extremism and bigotry.  He represents ideology and hatred.  That kind of extremism can happen within any culture, community, religion or other group of people.

But at the end of the day, it’s extremism and bigotry.  And so was the horrific shooting in Orlando.

Hate breeds hate, as they say.  The kind of divisive, offensive and even violence-inducing rhetoric Trump uses should only appeal to an extremist.  And if the shooter was gathering his ideology from his mosque, it’s not surprising that Trump is well-regarded among its leaders.

This may shock some Trump-supporting conservatives.  Many of them think of themselves on the pro-America anti-terrorist side of the debate.

But what they don’t understand is, underlying Trump’s language is mindless bigotry, and in many cases, that is what underlies terrorism as well.

It seems very clear that the shooter was targeting the LGBTQ community.  But to have the mindset that makes you justify shooting a group of people like that must require the kind of ideological extremism that Trump exhibits.

While it may be unthinkable that the shooter’s imam would support a guy who wanted to “ban all Muslims” from coming to America, it may not be as shocking as it at first seems.  The shooter was radicalized by elements of his culture and the society around him.

Does it seem so surprising that Trump would be well-regarded in his place of worship?
