"In his remarks, Minister of Memorial Church Jonathan L. Walton slammed the National Rifle Association for what he described as 'John Wayne fantasies and insecure masculinities.' Did the Muslim shooter, described as homosexual (like John Wayne) by several Pulse patrons and his first wife, pledge support to the NRA?
"We will not accept a new norm of one nation under a gun,” Walton said. Will diversity keep us safe from those who want to destroy us? [. . .] "The Office of BGLTQ Student Life released a statement expressing support for BGLTQ people of color, noting that the shooting 'specifically targeted Latinx BGLTQ.'" But the Muslim shooter was homosexual, from Afghanistan. Do Afghans hate Latinos? [. . .] "Dean of the College Rakesh Khurana encouraged students to consider adding hashtags of support in the wake of the tragedy to their online posts." Now that's what I'm talking about. Action, to change the world by hashtags. Go get 'em.
