The Southern Poverty Law Center, aka the SPLC, has published a list of what they call "Terror from the Right" that categorizes two Islamic terror attacks--including the deadly assault on Orlando's Pulse nightclub that left 49 dead and the Black Lives Matter-inspired murders of police officers in Baton Rouge and Dallas--as "radical-right terrorist plots."

Sources like the New York Daily news flatly reported Omar Mateen was gay, and the Guardian published headlines like Omar Mateen's interest in gay men makes this no ordinary act of terrorism.
However, the Los Angeles Times reported in June, 2016 that law enforcement officials told them that the "FBI has found no evidence so far to support claims by those who say Mateen had gay lovers or communicated on gay dating apps."
The SLPC made no mention that Omar Mateen's father was a Hillary Clinton supporter and attended a Clinton rally in August.
