Metro- A man who claims he was a lover of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen has said that the massacre was a ‘revenge’ attack against men who had ‘used him’.
The man, who identified himself only as Miguel, told Univision Noticias in an exclusive interview that he had ‘cried like you have no idea’ since the atrocity, but rejects the claim that it was an act of terrorism.
Miguel, wearing a disguise to hide his identity, said that he and Mateen had met on a gay dating app and had become ‘friends with benefits’. The pair had allegedly met between 15 and 20 times. Miguel never learned Mateen’s name, however.
‘He adored Latinos, gay Latinos, with brown skin – but he felt rejected,’ he said.
‘He felt used by them – there were moments in the Pulse nightclub that made him feel really bad. Guys used him. That really affected him.’
Miguel added: ‘The thing that makes me want to tell the truth is that he didn’t do it [the attack] for terrorism. In my opinion he did it for revenge.’
Attorney General Loretta Lynch did say that he had looked at extremist propaganda before the attack.
‘We believe that is certainly one avenue of radicalisation, but we want to know if there are others,’ she said.
I dug my key into the side of his pretty little souped up 4wheel drive,
Carved my name into his leather seaaaats
Took a Louisville Slugger to both headlights,
Shot a hole in 100 of his closest admirers
Maybe next time he'll think before he fleeeees...
I gotta say, I am extremely jealous of Omar Mateen's choice in fuck buddies. This dude Miguel - who I'm guessing just came forward because he's been living under a rock the last few week - is one loyal ass friend with benefits. The guy didn't even know the killers name, but he still felt indebted enough to shift some of the blame to the victims because they had a couple of no-strings-attached rendezvouses? If only everyone was lucky enough to find someone they can use for sex gratification that was willing to defend every terrible thing they did despite never going on a proper date. I wish I had someone that ignored all logic and rational to excuse everyone of my transgressions just because they've made me cum a couple of times. Doesn't sound like the worst kind of person to have on your side.
In all seriousness, I can't believe that Omar Mateen was used by members of the homosexual community. Absolutely stunned there were no followup texts after he spent the night drunkenly slurring on and on about his homophobic father to love interests he had met 5 minutes prior. I would have thought he'd have all eyes on him walking into the bar as the guy that was clearly uneasy about his sexuality. Shame on the 49 deceased and 53 injured. Maybe they should have been a little clearer about their intentions when they started chatting up awkward strangers at a night club. Just jumping from lover to lover? This would never be an issue in the heterosexual community. Whatever happened to the age old concept of 20-something year old homosexuals settling for one penis and starting a family? Have they no respect for traditional American values? Don't they want the proverbial white picket fence?
Look, I don't know what exactly caused this monster to open fire. I am assuming it was an amount of insecurity that would make the life of a prostitute seem safe. I do know that somewhere between the 2nd and 49th casualty - that all happen to be members of the LGBT community - that shit goes from an act of revenge to an act of terrorism. Especially when the person responsible has - at the very least - loose ties to the radical Islamic State.
