RUSH: Fox News has apparently confirmed that the gunman’s wife or ex-wife knew the guy planned to hit the nightclub and didn’t do anything about it. “Fox News confirms that the wife of Orlando massacre gunman Omar Mateen –” why do they leave out Siddiqui? Siddiqui is my favorite name of the three. Siddiqui. Siddiqui, they never put it in the story. They say Omar Mateen. I’m gonna throw the “Siddiqui” in there. “Wife of the Orlando massacre gunman Omar Siddiqui Mateen knew of his plans to kill patrons in the Pulse nightclub and did nothing about it.”
RUSH: Now, there’s a story, I don’t know how many of you people have seen this. And I don’t know how many of you are gonna make a connection here, but it’s part of this notion that the investigators are struggling to find a motive. “We can’t find one. Why would Mateen do what he did? It just baffles us.” Well, there’s a name you should know, Marcus Robertson. This is from a story sourced in San Antonio. In the first hours after the terrorist massacre in Orlando, we kept hearing that Omar Siddiqui Mateen had no criminal record, but he didn’t need one, you see, because he knew Marcus Robertson.
Do you know who Marcus Robertson is? I’ll lay you a dollar to a doughnut none of you know who Marcus Robertson is. Marcus Robertson is a former bodyguard to the blind sheik, Omar Abdel Rahman, who was the architect of the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center. Marcus Robertson, former bodyguard to the famous blind sheik is a suspect in more than one attack on police. He is a robber of banks to fund his activities. And one of his activities is an online ministry, the Fundamental Islamic Knowledge Seminary. It operates out of Orlando.
Omar Siddiqui Mateen was a follower of the Fundamental Islamic Knowledge Seminary and Marcus Robertson. “It’s not a coincidence that this happened in Orlando,” a law enforcement source told Fox News. Marcus Robertson is also known as Abu Taubah. He preaches against homosexuality. He’s been captured on wiretaps urging and inciting his disciples to file false tax returns, identity theft, using the money to travel overseas for terror training in central Asia and northern Africa. He didn’t need a criminal record; he just needed a mentor. It seems like he had one.
RUSH: Have you ever noticed that one Looney Tunes radical Islamist shooting up a gay nightclub, no way, no way does that have anything to do with Islam, no way, you cannot make that connection. He’s a lone wolf, he’s a whatever. But any time a non-Muslim shoots up a movie theater, do they not attempt to impugn all Christians, all conservatives, all Republicans as being represented by that guy.
But when a militant Islamist comes along, oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. This has nothing to do with Islam, nothing to do whatsoever. It’s a one off, the guy’s a lone wolf. No, no, no, no, no, we cannot make that connection. Some wacko shoots up a movie theater in Colorado and they try to link him to the Tea Party and any other Republican group they can find.
RUSH: By the way, the ex-wife of Omar Mateen Siddiqui claims the FBI told her not to tell anybody her husband was gay. Why would the FBI do that? If we believe that, why would the FBI tell her not to tell anybody that?
