Gutfeld on Orlando Club Shooting Anniversary: ‘Press Obscures Facts in the Name of Political Correctness’

On the one-year anniversary of the Pulse Night Club terrorist attack in Orlando, The Five‘s Greg Gutfeld went after the press for commemorating the tragedy with a rather stunning omission.

Gutfeld pointed out that The Washington Post left out the killer’s cause but made a reference to the Islamic State in a caption and “had no problem” calling the attack “another example of gun violence.”

He went on to say that “a better way to honor victims is to remember us why they were killed, not how they were killed.”

“After 9/11, you don’t honor the dead by saying they were murdered by a plane and a box cutter,” he added, “they were killed because of radical Islam. And the gays and lesbians murdered at The Pulse? Same thing.”

He stated, “So a year later, the press obscures facts in the name of political correctness. So a terrorist can gun down gays ‘but hey, let’s target the outrage that follows instead.'”

The Fox News host then invoked a piece in The New York Times focused on the critics of radical Islam and that the response was a “missed opportunity for gun reform.”

“Once again, terrorism always exposes enablers in their flaccid response to evil.” Gutfeld added.
