Truly frightening

French authorities foiled a planned terrorist attack on gay bars in Paris

During a hearing at the National Assembly, French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb made a disturbing announcement: French authorities derailed a planned terrorist attack on gay nightclubs in Paris on August 22 — one of 12 attacks thwarted since January.

The “plan of violent action” centered on “Parisian nightclubs and in particular gay clubs,” according to Collomb. He gave no further details but warned that “the threat remains high”:

“What Daesh (the Islamic State terror group) wants is to divide the national community and create clashes between French people. This is the trap into which we must not fall.”

    So where’s DC at to make excuses for the muslims?

    Maybe don’t let so many of them in your country?

      Maybe don’t colonize their countries, terrorize and dominate them for hundreds of years, and then act like you have no idea why some of “them” might be upset at you (even if it does not justify terrorism)?

    I cannot imagine how appalling it would have been. May it never happened. I do not want to witness that.

    Gays went all out for Hillary who promised she wasn’t going to do any Muslim vetting. And gays didn’t learn a lesson from Pulse and instead made Pulse a gun control issue rather than tell the truth that it was Islamic hatred of gays that motivated the attack. So, gays voted for Hillary bc she was pro gay. Yet she opens the doors to gay haters. The most twisted, distorted illogical political position I’ve ever seen anyone take. Gays really should get their politics in order on this issue. We already have 49 dead, how many more? Twisted, really twisted.

    That “French authorities derailed a planned terrorist attack on gay nightclubs in Paris on August 22 — one of 12 attacks thwarted since January” is the disturbing announcement? Sounds like they’re doing a great job to me and should keep on thwarting.
