How are comics writers responding to the mass jihad attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando?

You're not safe in an elementary school, high school, college,— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) June 12, 2016
movie theater, club, or church.
The only thing safe is the Second Amendment.
The problem isn't gun control OR mental health.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) June 12, 2016
Don't hide behind one issue to ignore the other.
We can work on BOTH at the same time.
For a leftist like Slott, psychology can never possibly be a problem. When he answers a guy who told him the club members could've defended themselves had they been able to carry guns, he says:
Delete your account.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) June 12, 2016
Maybe he should just shed his own for a change. There's no point in mimicking Hilary Clinton.

Got my 1st "they would've just used a knife" comment— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) June 12, 2016
That level of stupid is my cut off point.
Fresh air & talking w/ people w/o keyboards!
But as it so happens, the perpetrators could've used knives. There was a horrible case last year, right here in Jerusalem, where a Haredi crackpot from an isolationist-type background stabbed several people at a LGBT parade march in the summer, and murdered a 16-year-old girl who wasn't even a lesbian. The authorities have to shoulder much of the blame for failing to take any steps to prevent that monster from committing his repulsive crime. Many rabbis condemned the crime and made clear that, no matter how much they disagree with practice of homosexuality, it's no excuse for murder and violating the Commandment against it. I don't seem to recall Slott or any of his leftist colleagues ever condemning that tragic incident. Perhaps violence by religious fanatics of Haredi backgrounds doesn't exactly concern them?
Most illegal guns come from legal sales in other states.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) June 12, 2016
The sheer amount of guns we have in the U.S. IS the problem https://t.co/Gh0C7AuaLf
Keep going with those flaccid defenses, which collapse instantly. There's black marketeering of weapons globally, but most important of course, is how educational systems are failing.
And the highest # of gun-related deaths in the world.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) June 12, 2016
If only there were some correlation we could draw from that. https://t.co/Ypn6FOOdUf
I've got a hunch he doesn't want to live in Israel because there's thankfully laws today permitting self-defense, not unlike what the USA offers.
Medical reports have shown that guns do kill people.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) June 12, 2016
They're called "gunshot wounds". Not "people wounds". https://t.co/YwhTvdnSs9
So mindsets and education are never at fault in these cases? As expected, Slott keeps floating around in fantasyland.
Let's turn to Ron Marz. What does he consider a big issue here? As you could probably guess:
Sales of AR-15 rifles will go UP after today's horror. And that's just the way the @NRA wants it. https://t.co/cTMg0xxqyw— Ron Marz (@ronmarz) June 12, 2016
But no condemnation of the shooter's ideology and what led him to commit the horror? Now, here's G. Willow Wilson, whose answer is predictable:
You can't explicitly connect Islamophobic rhetoric to hate crimes, then preach homophobia in the mosque, then act surprised at this.— G. Willow Wilson (@GWillowWilson) June 12, 2016
But you can connect the Koran's nasty standing on homosexuality - such as verse 7:81 - to what happened. So her blabbery excuses are meaningless.
Let's now look at Gail Simone. She says:
The shootings in Orlando are horrible. We had no idea. Speechless right now.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) June 12, 2016
No idea that the perpetrator was an Islamofascist? I vaguely recall her downplaying the seriousness of the issue on the Dixonverse forum. How can we buy that she's really concerned?
Don't be fooled by the fake sentiments from politicians. Follow @igorvolsky to see actions say more than 'thoughts and prayers.'— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) June 12, 2016
Don't be fooled by her fake sentiments either. She's decidedly a phony if she won't condemn the education source of the shooter.
I don't have any useful wisdom except to say I dearly love the lgbtq I am fortunate enough to know. Love is all.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) June 12, 2016
If she did, then she'd worry about the Koran's verses. But all people like her worry about is Christianity/Judaism.
Orlando is a lovely place, full of friendly, kind people. And they are coming together everywhere.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) June 12, 2016
Yes, far more than Mrs. Simone happens to be.
Now for Kurt Busiek, albeit here, I'm going to post it via an answer given by another Twitter user:
The guy's right. An Islamofascist followed his Religion of Rape's view of homosexuals, and all Busiek cares about are conservatives? In that case, Kurt's not worried at all. He's just doing a two-sides-of-same-coin tactic. On the one hand, he claims to be in favor of homosexuality at all costs, yet that support grinds to a halt when Islam rears its ugly head. As Milo Yiannapoulous says, the left's chosen Islam over homosexuality, and now look what's happened. Now for Ed Brubaker:
The constant horror of 21st century humanity is just too fucking much... Be decent to each other, it's not that hard to do.— Ed Brubaker (@brubaker) June 12, 2016
Looks like he can't bring himself to name the religion that led to this tragedy either. It's hard for one side to be decent when they adhere to Islam.
‘No Way To Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens https://t.co/hEdu5pJJMN via @theonion— Ed Brubaker (@brubaker) June 12, 2016
Yet Ed doesn't seem particularly interested in recommending a way to prevent massacres like this from happening either.
I look forward to Congress working closely with President Obama to ensure this national tragedy is never repeated.— Ed Brubaker (@brubaker) June 12, 2016
There's just one little thing: will president Obama and other Democrats work closely with the GOP to ensure it never happens again? However, wait'll you see what this following artist/writer named Sarah Horrocks has to say:
Christians literally worship the same God as muslims. Your religion comes from the same damn place!— Sarah Horrocks (@mercurialblonde) June 12, 2016
Also who blew up that planned parenthood this year? Who shot up that church last year?Who is passing bills criminalizing being transgender?— Sarah Horrocks (@mercurialblonde) June 12, 2016
Who required the Supreme Court to intervene to give gay people marriage equality? HINT: IT WASN'T MUSLIMS.— Sarah Horrocks (@mercurialblonde) June 12, 2016
Umm, even if it wasn't Muslims per se, what if it turns out there's any who supported the opposition?
The bedrock of bigotry toward the lgbtq community in this country is Christianity. That is an inescapable fact.— Sarah Horrocks (@mercurialblonde) June 12, 2016
Journalists, this would be a good week to confront politicians with their own hateful lgbtq rhetoric and laws as they try to attack muslims— Sarah Horrocks (@mercurialblonde) June 12, 2016
Very fascinating. This woman is trying to divert attention from pertinent issues and heap it all on an easy target: Christianity. She's probably not even disturbed that just a few weeks ago, Orlando hosted a Muslim cleric who called for death to gays and lesbians. Say, if she's really so bothered, then is she mad at any LGBT advocates who may pan Muslims too? How pathetically cheap she is. Same goes for Gerry Conway's reaction:
What a disgusting way to dishonor the spirit of Ramadan. https://t.co/Cfqsx1a8UR— Gerry Conway (@gerryconway) June 12, 2016
What a pathetic show of knowledge from somebody who either didn't read the Koran, or is so callous he sees nothing wrong with it.
The reaction of many Floridians to the shooting in Orlando will undoubtedly be shock and horror that there are gay people in Florida.— Gerry Conway (@gerryconway) June 12, 2016
Conway's reaction is probably that a Muslim pulled this sickening act, and not a Christian and/or conservative.
"A history of America doing nothing in response to mass shootings" Nothing is what we do best these days. https://t.co/JC4KunECop— Gerry Conway (@gerryconway) June 12, 2016
Nothing is what liberals like Conway do best these days. The guy's long made a joke out of himself, leaving one to wonder why he'd ever bother creating the Punisher if he never liked the vigilante approach he ascribed to Frank Castle.
In the end, if anything's clear, it's that, while leftists may uphold homosexuality when Christianity/Judaism object, they'll abandon homosexuality when Islam objects. Even the above lefty examples may know that, but won't ever admit it. They're simply not fit to speak on the issues any more than they are writing comics and movies.
