I think what you're feeling persecuted about here is that people of a different mindset than you, are 1) able to see a pattern with these types of shootings, one that you don't like and 2) we're just wondering wtf it's going to take for the media to start talking about right wing extremism in the same way they talk about Muslim extremists, and black people killed by cops or that die in police custody.


How many shooters have been actual right wing extremists? There is no pattern. The only pattern is that all of the shooters have a history of mental illness.

The media isn't going to talk about "right wing extremism" because it's not a source of violence.

If the media really wants to address the primary cause of violence in this country, they would discuss inner-city black on black violence but they won't because no one cares to hear about it. A few weeks ago, in Philadelphia, two black men with shotguns opened up on a block party full of black men, women, and children but the media did not go nuts over it.

The media only gets involved when there's an agenda to be pushed, be it racial, political, or otherwise. Multiple black people die every weekend in some cities and there's no story. A white man shoots 2 white people in a theater and people lose their minds and cry about gun control. It's ridiculous.

Keep fighting the good fight, cause I can't deal with any more of this # today. Thank you for being both passionate and level headed, which is a state of mind I can't seem to summon today.


Are you going to propose a sensible measure that would have prevented this shooting?

I'm still waiting for that.

Closing the gun show loophole.

I get what you're saying. You're allowed to be upset for whatever reason. If I'm reading you correctly... your fear is on a grander scale, beyond the incident and you could very well be right, that it is an attack on a culture or ideology.

People are being defensive now. That's all this is.

You have scientific data here to back up your claims or is this just impromptu ?




No, he doesn't, because it's not factual.


44 of the last 67 mass shootings were carried out by white males. That's 66% and considering that white males make up 70% of the male US population, it's clearly not a "strictly white phenomenon" like the media wants you to believe.

Yes! I could and should have stated it better, but I absolutely stand by it.

I'm not attacking anything. You're being overly defensive.

How about something that actually exists, try again.

There is no gun show loophole. Dealers at gun shows have to perform background checks.

Teaching kids from an early age that guns are tools and not God-given sacred objects.

Stop treating them like tribal fetishes. A gun is no more useful a tool than a hammer, but for some reason very few American males treat their hammers as extensions of their manhoods.

Pretty sure when the two cops were murdered in NYC I didn't flip out when people assumed it was a black guy. But also missing from that thread was any talk about the guys mental state. He was just a violent thug manipulated by race baiters... is pretty much how that thread went.

You sure you want to keep talking about double standards?

The same rules apply at gun shows as apply anywhere else. A licensed dealer is still required to perform a background check at a gun show.

Nobody teaches kids that guns are God-given sacred objects. I also don't know any gun owner who treats a gun as an extension of their manhood... you're quoting from the anti-gunner's playbook.

Besides, you're off on a tangent and this has nothing to do with the law. Let's get back to a sensible measure that would have prevented this crime. Focus.

First of all: "Screw you guys for being such a bunch of babies that can't play nice." Lol! I had a really LONG, awesome informative post. But when I tried to send it the thread was locked because y'all can't behave.
Anyway, here's what I've dug up:
KATC Article
Tea Party Nation Profile
You will notice the Tea Party Nation profile is completely blank.
Here is a screen shot of his LinkedIn profile:

You can't really read it well but he's very proud of his guest hosting gig on talk radio and "inviting political controversy". And under 'Skills'...."God's Business" Chilling, n'est-ce pas?

Here are some choice quotes made in the comments section of political discussion boards:



Hitler accomplished far more than any other through "pragmatically forming".




America is so sick that I now believe it to be the enemy of the world. I know next to nothing about Iran, but the little I do know tells me they are far higher morally than this financially failing filth farm.


This one was really weird:
Radio Koocheh Comment
Scroll down to the comments. Everything else is in Arabic or something so I have no idea what it's about.

Here's some nice rant-y crazy reading material:
Political Forum

Under an article titled "Muslim convert quits Catholic Church, says it's too weak against Islam" he commented:



Rusty Houser December 25, 2013 at 8:22 pm
Death comes soon to the financially failing filth farm known as the US.Everyone will bow.


Here's his comment on an article titled "Why do Socialist Liberals Hate Putin?"



RUSTY HOUSER
January 4, 2014 at 4:32 pm
The US is no more than a financially failing filth farm.


And here he is getting asked to leave a political debate forum....for being a White Supremacist:
Debate Politics

Here's another profile:
Seeking Alpha Profile
He was last active in 2013, but in his picture he looks super tore up. I didn't go through all the comments, but it seems to be mostly financial stuff.

Here's a quote on a Golden Dawn/Greece article:



RUSTY HOUSER
on February 5, 2014 at 11:50 am said:
The Golden Dawn is composed of moral people.Moral people must unite to stop those that have no regard for their Maker.These are led by the US.

The US hates morality with a passion.They hate those who refuse to worship money.The US is controlled by a political alliance. This alliance is best defined as
1 upper class whites
2 Blacks
3 misfits[homos,transvestites,people who will not work,people with no culture,etc]

These immoral groups block vote and thereby control elections.
They also control the media through the money of upper class whites, and kickbacks brought through government contracts.

IT IS CLEAR THE MIDDLE EAST MUST FORGE AN ALLIANCE WITH ALL MORAL PEOPLE

or what is truth, justice, and morality has no chance.

The US is very weak financially , opportunity awaits.


And an article "Disgraceful! New Democracy Signs Into law Resolution Introducing Homosexuality to Children!"



RUSTY HOUSER
on February 11, 2014 at 9:42 am said:
They who would deny this to be the action of the enemy, ARE THE ENEMY.


He also was arrested for arson (a felony) and denied a conceal carry permit due to the charge. So...the gun he used was probably illegal for him to possess....just a thought for the "more gun control!" people. The laws in place didn't stop him, what would more laws do?

He also spent 2008-2009 in a mental hospital (East Alabama, Russell County, Ga) and there are some massive gaps in his employment history.

And to clear up all the conservative v. liberal bickering on this thread:
Read through his stuff. He was clearly a white supremacist, anti-abortion, Christian, conspiracy theorist. He considered himself very conservative and openly hated Liberals.

Now.....was he a lone nut? Or a Manchurian Candidate? So far I can't find any government/military ties, but now they wouldn't leave that just sitting on the internet, now would they?

pretty sure I remember no one assumed it was a black guy, because they knew it was a black guy before it hit ATS....

So try again.......

"He was a crazy tea partier!"

ahhh.......

Remind me how many violent protests, or any other things have been committed by Tea Party people? Since they are so crazy and violent?
