Hopefully this tragedy will lead the alt-left media to turn down the volume on their partisan hatred for a few hours.


Hours would be optimistic.

He was also part of the following Facebook groups

The road to hell is paved with republicans
Rachal Maddow for President 2020
Join the Resistance Worldwide

AND

Terminate the Republican Party

WILL MADDOW DISAVOW?

WILL THE "RESISTANCE" be designated a terrorist organization?


Is there actual proof the shooter was a big Maddow follower?

Yes, very different approach than that of perhaps any other politician.

But then again he is not politicians but an outsider, so politics are not really priority in his mind yet.

They'll figure out a way to blame it on "the Russians", "trumptards", and the 2nd Amendment.

I agree. This country is so divided now and will soon reach a breaking point I'm afraid. They say everything eventually repeats itself. For the sake of my children and the future of our country, I hope this doesn't escalate into another civil war.


Are we that really? 300 MILLION plus Americans and a few come out of the woodwork to do this or even protest? All of this was brewing under Obama too so it is not so clean of a label to suggest left vs right. We had groups like 99%ers Anarchist, cop protesters, Muslim extremism supports etc at forming in Obama's 8 years. What we are seeing is just further advancement of these same groups.

Trump is just the next easy scapegoat in a situation already triggered years ago.

Your average Bernie supporter doesn't go out and shoot Republicans. Your average conspiracy theorist doesn't shoot a Congresswoman in the head. Hell, your average neo-Nazi doesn't go out and shoot up a Black church. These tragedies didn't occur because the perpetrator was a Leftist, or a conspiracy theorist, or a racist. They occurred because these people were crazy.

Good gravy.
I am not saying that Bernie supporters are prone to murdering people that oppose their ideology.
I am saying that by all appearances, this shooting was politically motivated.
Just like the fact that Dylan Roof was a white racist was what motivated him to shoot black people.

Sometimes, there are reasons behind events.

That would be nice, but I think it will be more like muslims dancing in the streets after the 9/11 attacks.

We can only hope that CNN, MSNBC, WaPo, NYT et al will stop with the hate and division.
I suspect they will only encourage more violence though.

To all that believed the shooter was more valuable alive than dead:

Please remember that here in America we very seldom get the closure of a mass murderer giving a statement. It's not like the old days when Manson was given a platform to crack jokes about the victims.

Just this January, a serviceman from the Army whom was contracted to do field work for the FBI shot and killed 6 people at the baggage claim in Ft. Lauderdale airport.

When the Ft. Lauderdale shooter was approached, he threw his weapon down and surrendered.

HOWEVER,

To this day we still do not know how he managed to get a gun into the airport, whether he traveled with it on the plane, or whether he met with someone in the roundabout.

What we do know, and what was released to the media, was that the Ft. Lauderdale airport shooter claimed to have been brainwashed by the FBI, forced to watch violent Islamic State beheading videos, and thus decided to take out his deluded frustrations on innocent travelers.

So no... even if the shooter today had survived, there is very little chance that we would receive the explanation we were seeking.

Now that I'm thinking about it, I'm going to go file a FOIA request for the Ft. Lauderdale case from January.

The rest of you may continue bickering about partisan politics.

No we blame this crazy person.
He has nothing to do with anyone else. It's just him. Alone.

Its, ok, actions have repercussions, I will not stop telling that the Democrats and their bias liberal media are done for.



My sincere hope is that this event causes BOTH SIDES to take a step back and re-assess what we're really doing here.

Personally, I think this kind of stuff will escalate, but I hope I'm wrong...

So you're backing up your baseless assertion with a repetition of your baseless assertion? Jo Cox's murderer called her a "traitor" as he was shooting and stabbing her to death. Was the MSM to blame for that?

Ridiculous.

What about the guy who shot the 5 BLM protesters? Are you saying that the right-wing and its media arm don't employ vitriolic anti-BLM rhetoric to rev up emotional responses from their audience?

What's predictable here is your response. If the assailant is a right-winger, he's a "disturbed lone wolf." Anyone else is a "terrorist" and his race, religion or politics (or in this case "the MSM") are to blame. To hell with that double standard. You can bounce that around the echo chamber all you want but the rest of us aren't buying it.

Flashback Wednesday:



Love Rand Paul, even though I don't agree with him all the time. He at least seems honest.


Here's how a Revolution works:

Mandate of Heaven


According to this belief, heaven (天, Tian)—which embodies the natural order and will of the universe—bestows the mandate on a just ruler, the Son of Heaven. If a ruler was overthrown, this was interpreted as an indication that the ruler was unworthy, and had lost the mandate.


So if someone revolts and fails, than Heaven clearly does not favor them. If they revolt and succeed than they are indeed supported by Divine Will.

If Heaven revokes the mandate from the Republicans than it will become apparent and they will be ousted one way or another.

If the entire US Govt loses it's mandate it will collapse one way or another. This can include natural disasters, plagues, famine, economic bankruptcy, war, revolutions, etc.

So therefore today, the Order of the Universe has not completely revoked the Mandate. Tomorrow who knows, but today, they still maintain it. It doesn't matter how corrupt or immoral they are. Everyone is corrupt and immoral. The Divine Will is what is and that's how it works.

Also asked and was old the group were Republicans before he opened fire.
No doubt this was politically motivated and no doubt the shooter was a huge Bernie fan and carried a hatred of Trump.
