In an interview today (Sunday) Attorney General Loretta Lynch refuses to allow Omar Mateen to proudly self-identify.
We have seen plenty of this kind of behavior as of late. The ugliness of those who wish to deny others the Freedom of being who they are is rampant. It is particularly disturbing when the Leader of the Free World and his Staff behave in the same way and feel entitled to do so. It’s enough to make one physically ill.
Who is Loretta Lynch to tell this man what He is any more than telling Bruce Jenner who He is, or Rachel Dolezal who She is, or Elizabeth Warren that She’s not Native American and imply she should have to give the scholarships back so those genuine minorities who really need that expensive education can get it? Who does She think She is? It doesn’t matter what the definition of ‘Is’ is. ‘Is’ is what He knows it to Be. The Administration is attempting to rob this man of his self-esteem, to rob him of his identity, to rob him of his very being, and they are doing it in the most insidious way… omission.
Witness Attorney General Lynch when she states that the 911 calls made by Omar Mateen will be heavily redacted to exclude his Proud Proclamations associated with his Religion:
“What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda,” Lynch said. “We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to the Islamic State].”
Combine this overt Bigotry with the Obama Administrations seemingly pointless, if not oddly gratuitous, bombing of Muslim Nations and the Strange Pride the President exhibits when a human life is suddenly snuffed out by his Drone Program… One must wonder what other kinds of Religious Bigotry is practiced behind the closed white doors of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Now the President of The United States refuses to allow this proud man to claim before the world his devotion to Islam.
If we don’t stand up for those who feel they have no voice, if we don’t teach ourselves tolerance of those who are unlike us, and demonstrate understanding that it is our differences which make us strong, if we don’t embrace the culture of others what will this world be like?
Every Human should be able to determine Who They Are without derision poured upon them through such intolerant behavior as is being shown by President Obama and his Attorney General. It is the worst kind of Bigotry. It is the soft censorship of an Individual’s Identity.
We Are Who We Are!
We cannot permit Government to try to steal our Humanity!
