Liberals having trouble taking Muslim mass murderer at his word when it comes to motive

Kelly Riddell:
Omar Mateen pledged an oath to the Islamic State in a call to U.S. authorities, while shooting down 49 innocent people in what has become the worst massacre on American soil since 9/11.

And The New York Times is still trying to find a motive.

In its editorial page in Wednesday’s paper, The Times wrote: “While the precise motivation for the rampage remains unclear, it is evident that Mr. Mateen was driven by hatred toward gays and lesbians.”

“While the precise motivation for his rampage remains unclear”?!

The liberal media simply can’t wrap its head around why a gay Muslim registered Democrat would commit such an atrocity.

But it’s really clear: It was in the name of ISIS.

“I’m the shooter. It’s me,” Mateen was quoted as telling News 13 in Orlando. “I did it for ISIS. I did it for the Islamic State,” he said, according to a Washington Post account of the call.

Liberals would rather blame Christians or conservative Republicans than take the confession of the mass murderer.  It tells you something about their own bigotry.

Jonah Goldberg nails it.
