You hear that sort of talk on all sides of the issue though.

The left is equally open about not needing the votes of middle class whites because they will have the votes of the minorities who will become the new American majority, so they don't care what whites want. In its own way, that's as bad as anything white supremacists say about the matter.

Both sides tell young white men they don't matter at all because they're being replaced.

Yeah, I hate to be *that* person, but our kid has debuted his worst language from school, not any video game or movie. And he absolutely gets the chance to learn from movies because we have the closed captioning turned on in our house.


Kid: "Awww S#!!"

Parent: "WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY???? WHERE DID YOU HEAR THAT WORD???? TELL ME THIS INSTANT!!!"

Kid: **hmmmm...if I tell Mom I heard it playing CoD she'll never let me play again, so I wonder what will happen if I tell her I heard it at school??? Then, maybe, I won't have to go to school!! Yeah, that's the ticket!**

Kid: "Uhhh, I heard it from somebody at school."

(Hey, don't forget...I was a kid once too you know! LOL!!)

If he played CoD ... I'm not sure where. The one kid in the neighborhood who might have exposed him to it hadn't moved in yet by then.

And, this was the f-bomb.

We had covered sh!t from a movie. Had not yet moved on to the f-bomb. However, after that incident, we did move his movies up a bit.

Chuck Todd says on face the nation this morning "Trump is responsible for this attack".

He has Castro on and he says " Trump is responsible and is racist".

So I'm not sure what you all are debating, Trump did this according to NBC.

Yeah well, you knew that.

If one of those idiots stubs his toe, it's Trump's fault.

I'm not sure why any of these places were picked but I can see both sides of the ideological reasons why each target could have been picked.

El Paso Walmart has a large Mexican customer base and the murderer ranted about Immigrants who can't vote.

The Dayton shooting was in a Gentrified area of otherwise pretty rough Dayton and was a street full of hipster bars.

So, it could easily be anything when you look at it from other angles.

The document specifically mentions QAnon, a shadowy network that believes in a deep state conspiracy against President Trump, and Pizzagate, the theory that a pedophile ring including Clinton associates was being run out of the basement of a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant (which didn’t actually have a basement).

news.yahoo.com...

NOW THIS!!!


Leftists Change Shooter Patrick Crusius’s MyLife Page after Saturday Shooting from Democrat to Republican

www.thegatewaypundit.com...

Not only that, but now he is a Qanon follower!!!!

The FBI have exposed themselves as "Involved"!!! Wray must be removed ASAP!!! From Vegas to today, they are behind the shootings!!!


How convienient Wray warns of the dangers of Qanon, then all of a sudden the Shooter in Elpaso, is a Qanon follower.

"The Enemy Within"!!!!

Now Corey Booker is saying that if Trump didnt specifically tell this guy not to shoot people he is responsible for the murders....

You cant make this stuff up

I choose to believe this is Cory Booker's fault. The guy was really angry that Booker didn't sponsor more rights for trans-Mexicans to have abortions.

I think it's Booker's fault for not sponsoring more rights for trans-Mexicans to have abortions.

I'm sure the population in Walmart was diverse.
If all his victims turn out to be Latino then we can easily agree this was culturally-motivated.

I agree, that is why I stated American politicians and media without making any division. Too many divisions are being projected nowadays and young white males are being ignored or attacked from all sides. I will say that even this snowflake and millenial shaming is just as bad for some of the young men as the racists separations projected by the otherside.

And it all goes back to this idea that little boys are bad and wrong for being little boys. And that goes back to where feminism has taken itself.

Well, the shooter also had an issue with corporations too. So, I assume he chose Walmart for that reasoning over a public venue.

It wouldn't surprise me if he just in general had contempt for regular people and saw himself as some kind of super warrior enlightened being who knew and saw more clearly than everyone else. Isolation will do that for you.

From Newsweek


TextThe records indicate that Crusius registered to vote in 2016 but does not reveal his party affiliation.

Um no, that logic is not sound. He may have THOUGHT it would be full of Mexicans and thus chose this Walmart but was mistaken in general or on this particular day. Or he decided the percentages were in his favor even if he did randomly hit a white person.

Even if they all turn out to be Latino that also doesn't mean we can easily agree this was culturally motivated either. He may have picked this Walmart for any set of reasons. I was just pointing out one of many.

Most definitely. His manifesto pretty much gives the impression that he believes history will look back and be thankful that he was so enlightened to take on this responsibility himself. He sees himself as a hero.

Exactly! There are a dozen reasons he could have chosen this place, in this city, at this specific time. A case can be made for any side of the ideological debate IMO.

I definitely got vibes that he seemed to think he knew exactly what was wrong with America and how to fix it. Along with a persecution complex.
