Orlando: “The Jews did it”… “But it’s ok because the victims were gay” (& the dangers of Brexit)

June 16, 2016

[Notes by Tom Gross]

AND THE ANTI-SEMITISM JUST WON’T STOP…

You can discover three important pieces of information from these editorials in Pakistani newspapers about the massacre in Orlando by an Islamic extremist:

(1) The Jews did it.

(2) But it’s ok because the victims deserved to die as a result of their way of living.

(3) The purpose of the attack was to help the “Zionist” candidate Donald Trump win the U.S. presidential elections.

Tom Gross adds: Pakistan is an increasingly Islamic, heavily nuclear armed state, and many people (including myself) find that worrying.

RUSSIA, BEHIND THE TIMES

Here is the moment that two men were arrested in Moscow while paying respects to the victims of the Orlando massacre -- apparently for violating Russia’s strict laws against “promoting” homosexuality.

 

BREXIT AND THE FUTURE OF THE WEST

Here is a clip of the TV interview I gave earlier this evening about “the potential dangers of Brexit”.

The interview took place shortly after the news that British MP Jo Cox, who had been shot earlier in the afternoon, had died of her injuries.

Cox was a strong campaigner against Brexit, and her assassin is reported to have shouted the anti-EU, British nationalist slogan “Britain First” as he killed her.


 

AND ON A LIGHTER NOTE…

This is very funny and worth watching:

An 8th-grader’s graduation speech goes viral for his hilarious impersonations of presidential candidates Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
