Bravo! Wise words and very well said.



If anything is to draw of these two incidents imo it's that division is actually destroying the country. Pointing out how bad the other tribe is and not working on the weeds in your own tribe is the most energy the public can provide to division.


Your entire comment was excellent, but this especially deserves repeating. It cannot be said or emphasized enough (in my seldom humble opinion).

Does that mean this shooting was political?


The insane, Leftist, s.o.b. said "K-ll all fascists"...praised an ANTIFA terrorist...said he wants socialism and is not waiting around for "those idiots" to understand...and then killed a bunch of people in a Country/Western bar.

As political as it gets.

If it truly turns out that this is a politically motivated massacre, what do you propose?

Based on these reported leftist bona fides, right-wing pundits immediately began speculating that the Dayton shooter was a member of antifa. But aside from a retweet of an antifa account, his Twitter does not contain any references to antifascist activity; nor did he appear to engage in any local antifa action, which would be expected in Dayton, an antifascist hotspot, says Emily Gorcenski, a far-right researcher and creator of First Vigil, which tracks far-right extremism in the United States. “Typically what we see is antifascist activists in they’re mostly focused on their local issues. The folks in Portland they talk about Portland; the folks in D.C. talk about D.C.,” says Gorcenski. “He didn’t talk about any antifascist activities.”

It does not in terms of law enforcement and law.

He would have to designate and target the enemy not kill his own tribe.

In a sense it really doesn't matter. People who do this stuff have a mental illness and terrorize the public including their own tribe. It's really just a legal classification based on the motive of the homicide.

A Twitter account that appears to belong to Dayton mass shooter Connor Betts retweeted extreme left-wing and anti-police posts, as well as tweets supporting Antifa, or anti-fascist, protesters. The most recent tweet on the @iamthespookster account was on August 3, the day of the shooting, when he retweeted a post saying, "Millenials have a message for the Joe Biden generation: hurry up and die." The user's Twitter bio reads: "he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / I'm going to hell and I'm not coming back." One tweet used the hashtag #HailSatan.

Thanks just sad to see people get so upset over political narratives that are not even real.

It's our society. Yet we still want overlords we can scream at to fix it...the way America works is local/state/federal.

If we decide to control guns it can not be the feds and it will not solve the problem. There is a reason we also have the highest youth suicide rate in history. Largely the fault of parents..yep its once again us collectively. Millenials didn't arrive on a spaceship.

Gun control can be done through public safety at the state and local level but that is the only constitutional way. There is no point causing a civil war and confiscating guns. However if your community decides on certain rules there is room for that if done through representation.

This is a problem of stress. Time to look at that a little closer and stop blaming everything for our own decisions.

I still don't get why people are nitpicking.

What does it matter who's team they claimed to be on or what their motive was? People do these things because they feel so cast aside from society that they want to lash out and be recognized.

Think about that, people from all different kinds of backgrounds are causing discriminate and indiscriminate acts of violence. And rather than address our society by promoting open discourse, involvement into conversations from many different viewpoints, and helping our fellow humans out before it's too late....

We keep f###ing tally of which ethnicity, creed, political ideology, and any other group the offenders are a part of.

And when someone from "our side" does it, we just say something like "Well at least my opposition went past their quota, we're only at one this quarter", like it's some kind of game.

You SAW his retweet of praise for the Antifa bomber from his actual Twitter page.
I posted it for you.

You chose to ignore it.

Then you post a quote from pro-Antifa ROLLING STONE saying there's no praise for ANTIFA coming from him.
We already know what ROLLING STONE will say...you also saw his actual retweet from his page.

AGAIN:



WHAT does SILLY think of his praise for the ANTIFA bomber?

Do you have YOUR OWN opinion on what you now see before your eyes?
...or do you just blindly see what agenda-driven RS tells you to see?

That does not make this shooting political that is where you are failing.....
He was not antifa he retweeted something from them.
He shot his sister and her boyfriend and that sounds domestic to me.

Yep, the left use it as a game to try and restrict gun rights, while the right stand their ground saying more gun laws still won't prevent mass shootings. That's the argument I see every time and will continue to fight against the left using mass shootings as a way to try and infringe on my rights.

What makes someone Antifa? Does he need to register, pay an annual fee, take domestic terrorist courses??

Because looking at the things he praised recently (ICE attack in Tacoma - calling him a "Comrade") and mentioning he wanted to "Kill all fascists"... I guess you're right, he was a good man, this was only about his sister.... (rolls eyes)

How could I be wrong about anything? I just quoted CNN and didn't add any opinion of my own.
