Video: Rabbi blames Washington-based Freedom Foundation for Orlando terrorism

Rabbi Kolodny blames a Washington-based think tank for the Orlando terror attack.According to Rabbi Debra Kolodny, the Washington state-based Freedom Foundation is responsible for the Islamic terror attack in Orlando for allegedly funding “conversion therapy,” Michael Strickland wrote at Progressives Today on Tuesday.

“It’s not just that these folks fund conversion therapy, and that the poor souls who are subjected to that are traumatized and have their souls denied and desacrelized (?)! The fact that conversion therapy exists in this country and is advocated for translates into massacres like what occurred in Orlando at The Pulse LGBTQI nightclub,” she said.  “We now know that the gentleman who pulled the trigger frequented that nightclub, had relationships with men, and his internalized homophobia, his self loathing, propagated by this kind of hate, resulted in a 50 person massacre. I say The Freedom Foundation has BLOOD ON ITS HANDS!”

But, Strickland noted, quoting the group’s Oregon director, Anne Marie Gurney, the group has nothing to do with conversion therapy.

We have never funded conversion therapy, to be clear,” she said. “That is nowhere on our radar. Our laser focus is labor reform. Period.

Here’s video of Rabbi Kolodny making her claim while addressing a gaggle of leftist protesters outside a Freedom Foundation dinner in Portland which featured Steve Forbes:

The organization, Strickland said, is known for supporting right to work.

According to their website:

“The Freedom Foundation is working to reverse the stranglehold public-sector unions have on our government. There is no path to expanded freedom, opportunity or prosperity until we make collective bargaining transparent, give government employees a choice to join an employee’s union or not, and prohibit taxpayer’s money from being unwillingly used to influence the political system. Freedom Foundation has the will and skill to take on those who attack our freedom.”

Rabbi Kolodny, Strickland added, had quite a bit to say, and declared that God is “gender f*****g queer.”

Personally, I think the Almighty might disagree.

Strickland has much more on the protest, and the good rabbi, here, including more videos.
