Wars can begin with one bullet...one killing. It wasn't me who killed a liberal...it wasn't anyone on the right that committed murder. You figure it out.

I notice you, conveniently, don't specifically say, but imply, what that subset is; however, others do specifically say: hence, my original post about the matter.

Additionally, the guy who attempted to hack up the college coffee shop also believed the left and liberals were the cause of his ills, and many (here and elsewhere) were quick to also place the blame there. Again, hence my original post.


My only aim was to outline what the argument is. I left out "the left" because, as you pointed out, the very same could be said about the right. Groupthink and tribalism and echo-chambers can lead to the beliefs some use to justify their actions.

"We had nothing but baseball bats to fight back against a rifle with," Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks said.


Except for a security group there to protect you.

are you saying no one on the right has never killed anyone on the left?

What if the tables were turned?

What if this was a Trump supporter attacking Democrat officials?

I guarantee it would be the biggest #ing outrage you've ever seen.



Been speculating along those lines,

Turn tables, make it 2012, make perp right-wing, make miltia affiliations.

Under those circumstances the government, media and grass-root far left would not quit until all groups under heading "right-wing" were disbanded, funds seized, members put on show trials and generally dragged through mud while at the same time passing laws abridging second amendment.

Realizing that speculative scenario comes close to expressed aims of many on that side I wonder that at a minimum some of the far left organizations should be infiltrated and cases developed for any expousing violence as a means to achieve political goals.

Antifa comes directly to mind.

Clinton and Reno did it back in the 90's cept' no need nor desire to shoot teenagers in back, kill mothers holding babies nor burn several hundred to death as they did at Ruby Ridge and Waco.

Conservatives don't roll that way.

Am I calling for purge and examples made - yes.

I wonder if the shooter was a poster here, just as I wonder if posters like WE ARE AWAKE will be future shooters.

I wonder things like these


Have you ever been right?

What does dick size have to do with this? Anti, take a deep breath. I know we do not see eye to eye on many things but I would not think of you as one who would advocate violence.



I posted something inflammatory about theantediluvian. He was responding to the that.

I apologize theantediluvian.

I was trying to think of the ATS poster who most dislikes Trump and I used theantediluvian for that person.

I DO NOT think he is a violent person who would ever do something of the sort.

How can you post this:

No! I am not a MURDERER. Apparently, the right have some morals the left don't.
and then follow it up with

THIS IS THE REVOLUTION! Sure...you can wait...some will. To the rest of you...we ALL believe in an EYE FOR AN EYE!


Deranged.

Again...I don't believe in killing. I am not a murderer, a religious nut-case nor anyone who would hurt another. I believe in the Constitution and EQUAL rights for everyone. I consider myself "right".

But today...sadly...the left have groomed a killer. Groomed by their lies, rumors and words. They are responsible. Actions and words have consequences...this is yours.

It is wrong to label all leftists as this guy.

Just remember though. . .

It is wrong to label all gun owners like this guy, when the talk of gun control comes up, and it will.


One of the first things out of Terry McAuliffe's mouth today was to blame guns.

Liberal Politics 101: Never let a good crisis go to waste.


labeling all gun owners the same is completely different than saying guns are too easly accessible to the mentally ill, there IS a difference, you know this right?


That's not what McAuliffe said and I know for a fact that's not what the leftist agenda is.

Most liberals pretend to support the 2nd Amendment -- if they didn't they'd be summarily voted out of pretty much every elected office down to Public Sanitation Commissioner.

But most conservatives and moderates (75% of the electorate) know the truth: as long as Americans are armed, leftists can't establish the cradle-to-grave socialist Caliphate they so desire.

As long as the populace is armed, leftists can't confiscate our wealth to pay for that socialist caliphate.

As long as the populace is armed, leftists can't control the speech and very thoughts of the rest of us.

You can call that hyperbole all you want, but I for one know the truth.

The 2nd Amendment and an armed citizenry is THE firewall against leftist totalitarianism.

It is my speculation over the past decade and especially on this board that the right outrages much more over murder or threats to to "their kind" than the left outrages over threats and murder of "their kind".

I believe the miserable right (im saying this meaning that not all right is miserable, just the miserable ones) need more drama and complaining in their lives so it is dragged on and on and on and speculations take hold, rabbit holes are dug up and anger and misery is prevalent in every post.

wow, i just saw the cell video of the shooting. So many shots.

Incredible video.

Thankfully all the victims will survive. That was scary. Could have been so much worse. The security guys are heroes today.

thats not truth, it is your truth based on opinions of others.

So then you're calling for Right wingers to shoot to maim? You used the phrase Eye for an Eye and used terms like war and revolution. If you weren't calling for violence then what was the point of your post?

We should pray to God it's mental. If it was extremely political anger that would cause a normal person to kill innocents, he probably isn't the only one.


He supported Hillary in 2016 and apparently switched to Bernie. Fact is he hated the GOP and Trump. His Twitterfeed and Facebook page speak volumes in that regard. I'm still not convinced that's the real motive though.


This is the website for his business: www.jthinspections.com. It's no longer active, and the last archive was in November 2016 (view through archive.org).

I wonder if the election really did just crush him to the point of closing his business (given that someone else mentioned his wife said he was in Virginia for the last 3 months). And he has just mentally spiraled since.

***

As an unapologetic CTer, this mass shooting rings true for me. Hodgkinson has a long history on social media and with his business -- all easily available online. Plus, he didn't actually kill anyone either...unlike so many mass shootings (some of which may be/are false flags) where more than a dozen people are killed.

It remains to be seen if there is false flag motive though...if so, I reserve the right to rethink things.

You're a liberal, but not a politician (I assume).

I am referring to a political agenda that is actively being pursued by leftist politicians.
