I think it may be true.
From the first horrible reports of the killings, I thought it odd that ISIS chose a group largely ostracized - latino gays? The monstrous truth is that ISIS would sooner kill our children because that would be a “body blow” to the US or they’d even kill rich, white, gays in Hollywood or culteral centers in NY because that would get the most press.
I think the creep in question didn’t want to admit his was killing gays because he felt “rejected” so he pretended to do so for something only a sociopath would think of as “noble” - namely, ISIS.
I think the fact that one of theirs is gay is embarrassing to them so they can either say “Hey, one of ours is corrupt like the 9/11 terrorists (they were into strippers etc.) while we claim to be above American culture in fact he was doing things we claim we kill others for doing.”
Or they can wipe the egg off of their sociopathic faces and say “er...yeah...yeah...all part of the plan....most kills by a shooter...that’s a record, right? Yeah we did it.”
AND supposedly the sicko must have known that he wouldn’t be getting those 72 virgins because a) Allah rejects him like his Latino lovers and b) he didn’t want ‘em.
