After Las Vegas, LGBTQ needs to step up

After the mass murder in Orlando at the Pulse night club in June, 2016, the entire nation mourned those who had been killed and those who had been wounded.  As well, the entire nation condemned the wanton act of mass murder in Orlando.  Most of the victims in Orlando were LGBTQ.

We have not yet heard from the LGBTQ community about the mass murder and carnage in Las Vegas.

The LGBTQ community needs to step up and publicly condemn the murders and mourn with the rest of the nation for those killed and wounded.  If the LGBTQ community fails to do so, it will be seen by many as being just another egocentric (self-absorbed) self-serving special interest group and will lose some credibility for its failure.

We believe that no group should be immune from legitimate, constructive criticism.

      • That is good, but more needs to be done. LGBTQ is not served by silence on this atrocity. Reread my post above about how the entire country mourned over Orlando.

      • If you cannot see that the whole country is mourning over the Las Vegas shooting, I am sorry. A mass hate crime shooting in Orlando does not make the entire LGBTQ community any more responsible for speaking out against mass shootings than any other groups of people. As Americans mourning over the loss of American lives, we all have that responsibility.

        I am not picking on LGBTQ individuals here. I am pointing out that identity politics aside, all Americans need to come together. If that is happening, great. The public’s perception may be (and for some is) that LGBTQ folks only care about LGBTQ persons and do not care for non-LGBTQ persons. You can have the last word, if you wish.

Have anything to say?
