Attorney General Lynch Reveals Information In Attempt To Spin [VIDEO]

Attorney General Loretta Lynch must have drawn the short straw among the Obama administration’s lackeys, as she was sent out to do the “full Ginsburg” of Sunday shows. And even as she announced that “partial” transcripts of the 911 calls between negotiators and Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen would be released today, it’s what she said is, and is not, in those transcripts that tells us just how desperately the administration is trying to spin their narrative.

And of course, in the course of five TV appearances, she said quite a lot, over and over.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch: It will contain the substance of his conversations. And there were three conversations between this killer and negotiators.

Dana Bash: He was, of course, in a gay nightclub. Did he talk about his feelings about gay Americans?

Lynch: You know, he didn’t get into that. So we’re still exploring why he chose this particular place to attack. We’re asking people who have information to come forward… We are trying to learn everything we can about this individuals motivations. As you note, he was in a gay nightclub. This was an act of terror and an act of hate targeted against a community, the LGBT community, the Latino community, and of course the LGBT community is so far too often the victims of these types of crimes.

This is the narrative that Lynch was sent out to push, that the Orlando shooting was a “hate crime.” Because if it’s a “hate crime,” then the Obama administration won’t be held to account for its abysmal failures in keeping Americans safe from terrorists. As Hot Air notes:

Keep in mind that the standoff between law enforcement and the terrorist lasted for roughly three hours and, as Lynch reminds us, there were three extensive conversations between them. They obviously asked him why he was doing it as part of their negotiating tactics and he talked about US policy and his dedication to ISIS. With that much time on his hands, if he was some hate filled, right wingnut American (though a registered Democrat) who was making a statement along those lines, don’t you suppose it might have come up? (emphasis in the original)

Lynch showed up on Face the Nation shortly after this and recited the same lines. John Dickerson prompted her by saying he “mentioned ISIS” and asked “what else” he talked about. Did he mention LGBT? She said, yet again, he didn’t bring it up “in that conversation” but then jumped right into the LGBT and Hispanic angle. (emphasis in the original)

By acknowledging that Mateen never mentioned anything about gay people (much less Latinos), it undercuts her entire “hate crime” narrative just as quickly as she makes that claim.

But will Lynch acknowledge Mateen’s real motivations? Of course not!

LORETTA LYNCH: What we’re announcing tomorrow is that the FBI is releasing a partial transcript of the killer’s calls with law enforcement, from inside the club. These are the calls with the Orlando PD negotiating team, who he was, where he was… that will be coming out tomorrow and I’ll be headed to Orlando on Tuesday.

CHUCK TODD: Including the hostage negotiation part of this?

LYNCH: Yes, it will be primarily a partial transcript of his calls with the hostage negotiators.

CHUCK TODD: You say partial, what’s being left out?

LYNCH: What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda.

CHUCK TODD: We’re not going to hear him talk about those things?

LYNCH: We will hear him talk about some of those things, but we are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance and that. It will not be audio, it will be a printed transcript. But it will begin to capture the back and forth between him and the negotiators, we’re trying to get as much information about this investigation out as possible. As you know, because the killer is dead, we have a bit more leeway there and we will be producing that information tomorrow.

So, let’s ignore Mateen’s claims about pledging himself to ISIS. Because that would “further his propaganda.” I think that cat left the bag a long time ago, and censoring the transcript in the name of denying ISIS a moral victory is a pathetically shallow one. Especially given that the killer’s wife has vanished, and the FBI is still trying to figure out what his family knew.

I thought that we were supposed to believe people when they told us their “truths.” After all, that’s the entire point of the transgender movement – we are to believe them when they say they are now of, or identify with, the opposite sex. The Obama administration has gone to great lengths to make SURE that the public at large is condemned for NOT taking transgender people at their word. But when a man calls 911 after killing dozens of people and says, “I identify with ISIS,” well, the administration says he didn’t really mean it. Don’t take him at his word. This is a hate crime against gays and Latinos, says Attorney General Lynch. He might not have said that, but that’s what he meant.

After all, we wouldn’t want to expose the Obama administration as a bunch of hypocrites, would we? Because THAT certainly wouldn’t fit the narrative, either.
