Alt-Right responds to Orlando shooting with Trump love, anti-Muslim hate, rape jokes

The AltRight ponders the shootings in Orlando
The AltRight ponders the shootings in Orlando

Most Americans, it seems safe to say, look upon the murderous hate crime that left 50 dead in the Pulse nightclub in Orlando with a mixture of horror and sadness.

But for many of the proud bigots in America’s burgeoning alt-right movement, the attack has been a great opportunity.

An opportunity to spread their racist and Islamophobic views. An opportunity to boost their chosen presidential hopeful, Donald Trump.

And for some, an opportunity to make crude homophobic jokes about the victims of the shooting.

Alt-rightists often complain about being “silenced” by the evil forces of political correctness. But on Twitter today the alt-right has been anything but silent.

I spent a few hours today sorting through the Tweets of assorted alt-rightists and fellow travellers. Here’s what they are saying.

The odious racist troll Matt Forney, whom I wrote about only yesterday, set aside his homophobic trolling of Gawker staffers in order to attack Muslims and, for some reason, African-Americans:

He also managed to work in a rape joke to boot:

Noted internet narcissist Mike Cernovich babbled ponderously about the need to “get hard,” buy guns, and “take our country back.”

Amazingly, he has somehow managed to convince himself that Trump fans are the real victims here.

Even more bizarrely, he accused the media … of trying to make the “story go away fast.”

https://twitter.com/Cernovich/status/742054734744457216

Yeah, except for the live coverage on the cable news channels and the literally thousands of news stories on the massacre.

White nationalist Youtuber RAMZPAUL didn’t even bother to rein in his homophobia while using what he derisively called the Orlando “homocaust” as an excuse to attack Muslims and pimp for nationalism.

Despite being born here.

AdolfJoeBiden, an influential alt-right Twitterer with more than 34,000 followers, seemed to think that the massacre might turn out to be a … good thing.

But nonetheless found a way to blame the whole thing on … the Jews.

This Trump fan seems to think the only solution is to torture people who had nothing to do with it:

Lyz would even torture Omar Mateen’s ex-wife — who left him after a brief marriage because, she says, he was abusive to her.

https://twitter.com/lyz_estrada/status/742064945043374081

By this logic, the FBI should storm Orlando’s hospitals to torture all of Mateen’s victims being treated in them.

More than a few of these repugnant sh*tposters ook the opportunity to attack gay people.

Others made homophobic jokes:

https://twitter.com/cuckservative/status/741983083432288256

Others posted incoherent nonsense about the Jews:

https://twitter.com/VictoriaAutM0rs/status/742106900704137217

Yet many alt-righters and fellow travellers have convinced themselves that they’re somehow the real victims.

The #WhiteGenocide crowd was out in force:

As were the “how’s that diversity working out for you” idiots:

https://twitter.com/voxday/status/742037428794470400

They all pretty much see mass deportations as the answer:

https://twitter.com/dissidentusa/status/742025881388994560

Some even threatened the presumptive Democratic nominee with deportation or worse:

Some mixed-and-matched assorted bigotries with wild abandon:

And then there is this lovely individual:

Just a reminder: These are all people who think of themselves as representing the finest flower of the noble civilization that needs to be protected from the darker-skinned people of the world.

The Westboro Baptist Church have got in on the act. Won’t bother repeating what they’re saying; you can all guess.

You’re all really nice people here and I don’t want to let the side down so I’m going to vent on Facebook for a bit.

And, of course, Alex Jones is saying it is yet another false flag operation designed to take away guns and freeze peach from true Americans.

But for some reason, this one gets to me as much as just about anything else:

Geraldo Rivera shamed the victims for not “fighting back”:

When you’re in that situation and you have no weapons, you have two choices. If you can’t hide and you can’t run, you have two choices. You stay and die, or you fight. For God’s sakes, fight back. Fight back. There’s 100 people that he murdered with one weapon that he reloaded. When he reloaded they must, people must, America must understand, we are at war with Islamic terror, with these terrorists. We’ve got to stop them in Raqqa, we’ve got to stop them in Mosul, and we’ve got to stop them in the Pulse, Orlando.

Wut.

Just. Just no. Not that it matters to your disgusting point, Geraldo, but: he had more than one weapon, you human septic tank. Also, the guys over on AR15.com seem to agree that anything over four seconds for someone who has practice reloading mags is “grandma slow” and that between three and four seconds is “starting to get slow”.

Hey, I’ve got an idea: Howsabout you and 300 of your colleagues at FOX News volunteer to stuff yourselves into a nightclub, and then “fight back” against a similarly armed and prepared shooter?

It took the police of a major U.S. city three hours and a BearCat to take the guy down, but hey, Geraldo’s here to tell us: he and his friends would have stopped him bare-handed. They’re not sissy gays, after all.

What a worthless and repulsive opinion.

Trigger warning for discussion of gun violence

I teach Krav Maga. I use the official IDF syllabus.

The syllabus includes defence against:

Knife threats – that’s when someone is threatening you with a knife but hasn’t yet tried to stab you.

Knife attacks – that’s when someone is actually trying to stab you.

Gun threats – that’s when someone is threatening you with a gun but hasn’t yet tried to shoot you.

Spot what’s missing there? And you can be pretty sure that if there was a way of defending against a gun attack then the Israelis would have a vested interest in working out what it was.

(The official advice is run if you can or hide behind something really solid and hope you aren’t spotted. It’s accepted that if you don’t have those options then you’re going to get shot)

David, a style note: You usually blot out some part of a racial slur, but you left one intact in the last batch of tweets.

Geraldo Rivera would #1 and #2 all over himself if threatened with a cap gun.
