What a world we live in when multiple groups are chomping at the bit to claim responsibility for a mass murder. ISIS was first up, releasing a formal statement though their official news agency Amaq stating “The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition.” ISIS would later go on to clarify “The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago.” It is worth noting that even the Associated Press admits that the group “is not known to have claimed any attacks to which it was not at least loosely linked.” Despite this fact thus far the FBI has dismissed this claim, saying they have found no link from the shooter to ISIS or any other foreign terrorist body.
Does that mean the door is still open for a Domestic terrorist organization? Apparently so, as now Antifa has also claimed the shooter as one of their own. Apparently deciding it is finally time to show the world their true colors.
Regardless of the truth behind either claim, the important thing is that it reveals that both groups share in their mutual pleased reaction to the tragedy in Vegas. Serving as just more final proof that Antifa has been a terrorist organization all along. While that isn’t all that surprising. What is sad is how many mainstream Liberals voices seem to share both groups lack of sadness over this horrific loss of human life.
