Orlando Terrorist Appeared in 2012 Gulf Oil Spill Documentary

Orlando nightclub gunman Omar Mateen in 2012 was featured in a documentary called “The Big Fix” by the film company Green Planet Productions, it was discovered Wednesday. The liberal polemic demonized “Big Oil” in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Mateen, who was working as a guard for the security company G4S at the time, is shown in uniform talking with a reporter near a Pensacola, Florida, beach in 2010. A hidden camera worn by filmmaker Rebecca Tickell captured the future jihadi cynically criticizing the clean-up efforts.

“No one gives a sh*t, no one gives a sh*t here,” said Mateen. “Like, everybody’s just out to get paid. They’re, like, hoping for more oil to come out and more people to complain so they’ll have job. ‘Cause once people get laid off here, it’s gonna suck for them. They want more disaster to happen. That’s where they’re money-making is.”

Mateen killed 49 people and wounded 53 others during his July 12 rampage on the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando before being shot dead by police in a hostage rescue operation three hours after the carnage started.
