The mainstream media is in full cover-up mode this morning, seeking to quickly brush aside a gay activist’s planned mass murder at the Family Research Council (FRC) headquarters in Washington DC.
Floyd Lee Corkins, 28, was armed with a Sig Sauer 9mm pistol purchased within the past week and had two spare 15 round magazines, plus another box of ammunition—a total of 95 rounds—in his possession when he was taken down. Additional boxes of ammunition were found in his car. The gun and ammunition appear to have been purchased explicitly for the attempted massacre.
In addition to the pistol, spare magazines and boxes of ammunition, there was another no clear indication that Corkins had mass murder on his mind, and that his inspiration was driven by left-wing LGBT political views.
He’d plotted to leave a clear message with the dead:
Federal authorities say Floyd Lee Corkins II told a guard at the Family Research Council, “I don’t like your politics” before shooting him in the arm. The guard and others helped subdue Corkins, who was taken into custody.
He’s been charged with assault with intent to kill and with bringing a firearm across state lines.
Authorities found a box of ammunition and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches in his backpack.
Fifteen Chick-fil-A sandwiches, and dozens of rounds of ammunition.
Last month, a Chick-fil-A company officer named Dan Cathy was interviewed by a religious magazine. He benignly indicated his support of the traditional definition of marriage between a man and a woman. In response, the radical gay left whipped up hysteria against Cathy, and sought a boycott and a public shaming of the company and its franchisees (most stores are independently owned and operated).
Millions of Americans—gay, straight, white black, brown, and yellow—fought back against the ginned-up controversy. They stood in long lines in support of Chick-fil-A, and in clear opposition to the tactics of the radical gay left. The Family Research Council took a public stance supporting Chick-fil-A and the Cathy family’s traditional Christian values. It was a humiliating public relations debacle for the radical left, and Corkins apparently held the FRC responsible for that defeat.
It appears that Corkins intended to murder as many FRC employees as he possibly could, then drop Chick-fil-A sandwiches on or near the bodies as a grim totem indicating why he carried out his massacre in support of the radical gay left agenda. Corkins, like many radical left gay activists, apparently views the FRC as a “hate group,” a view that many gays still publicly and privately maintain even in the wake of the attack.
Yesterday’s attempted massacre was apparently the direct result of the leftist demonization of the FRC, Chick-fil-A, and values shared by hundreds of millions of Christian Americans. It was the direct result of radical leftist hate that they like to call “tolerance.”
