Guns, race, religion, terror, wingnut thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I've added him, he's at least an example of how the rightwing haters influence the armed nutcases. Besides, the list should have had a 'Bush' long ago.

Mail bomb suspect once a student at Brevard College

... A spokesperson for Brevard College said Sayoc, who listed his home address as North Miami Beach, Florida, was a student there from fall 1980 through the fall semester in 1981. Sayoc played soccer, attended three semesters but did not graduate, the spokesperson said.

Sayoc's involvement in soccer is pretty well documented. He appears in team photos from the '81 and '82 school years, and there's one photo that shows him in action on the field....

A spokesperson for UNC Charlotte confirmed a Cesar Sayoc was a student there for one year (1983-1984), during which time he played soccer but did not graduate....
On behalf of WNC and 1980s soccer players, sorry.

Another one for the list :( :
Live updates: Shooting at Pittsburgh synagogue

... Suspect's Gab account reveals anti-Semitic posts

Robert Bowers, the suspected gunman in a deadly shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh Saturday morning, was apparently active on Gab, the social networking site popular among white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and other far-right extremists.

Bowers’ account was quickly deactivated shortly after his name had been made public, but a link to his archived profile offers a glimpse at the kind of anti-Semitic rhetoric he posted, starting with the line, “jews are the children of satan” in his user bio. Two of his most recent posts, including one apparently posted Saturday morning, refer to HIAS, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, a non-profit that provides humanitarian aid to refugees in the U.S. In another post from two days ago, Bowers wrote that “Trump is a globalist, not a nationalist. There is no #MAGA as long as there is a kike infestation.”

HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people.

Screw your optics, I'm going in.
Je suis Pittsburgh.

Victim blaming, it's the POSPOTUS way.
... Asked whether it was time to revisit the country's lenient gun laws, the president suggested instead that the toll might have been far lower had armed guards been posted in the synagogue, which they reportedly do only on the religion's High Holy Days.

"If they had protection inside the temple, maybe it could have been a very much different situation," he said. "They didn't." ...

Yep, he did say, "a very much different".

But it was the most very much different anybody has ever seen. The most very much different in the history of different.

The first 4 cops to confront the shooter were wounded. I'm sure that Dolt .45 really meant that every house of worship should have 5 or more armed guards, all with at least the training and experience of a Pittsburgh cop.

Semi-serious question: how is it that a crazy white guy can shoot a bunch of people, including 4 cops and the cops can't manage to bring him down? Cops did a good job today, but I don't want to hear any "I wuz skeered for my life" the next time they shoot an unarmed black guy.

Maybe, but the cops were probably better armed than that. And they did shoot him non-lethally.

Idk what arms the first responding patrol cops had or used. Is it normal for regular cops to carry assault-style rifles? After Columbine, and then reinforced by Pulse Nightclub, cops are trained to engage an active shooter when civilians are present immediately, not await SWAT or other reinforcements.

Even if just pistols, with 4 or more cops shooting one would hope that at least one bullet would hit their target.

I read that the average age of the synagogue victims was 74 with the oldest being 97, not exactly the types to head up whatever ZOG conspiracy Robert Gregory Bowers imagined or to populate the world with more Jews. Even by his own hateful team's standards he's an idiot and a failure.

If you don't support Trump's hate, don't work for him.

Tell all officials and staff in the Trump administration:

"Continuing to serve in this administration makes you complicit in the real world consequences of Trump's hateful rhetoric and policies. Resign immediately and denounce Trump's hate."
I make no predictions about which direction the country will go, but I wonder how similar we are to decent Germans that were sure that the worst of fascism would never be realized in their country.

I guess it's because there weren't enough killed, or maybe because (I think) they were both black guys, but there has been no comment for "solutions" to the school shooting at Butler HS.
https://www.ajc.com/news/national/stude ... gmANm29VL/

Usual answers were used up: Armed guard/resource officer, check.

But guess what - the school's security practices were so lax the dude could basically just walk in with his gun. No checking bags. No metal detectors. Lax policy on bullying. Hallway fights.

Oh well, there's always thoughts and prayers.

I tried that thoughts and prayers thingy once. I couldn't decide if I wanted to think or if I wanted to pray; so I just thought about praying.

Trump Fan Convicted In Anti-Muslim Terror Plot Asks Judge To Consider Trump's Rhetoric

Meanwhile, Trumpettes are desperately denying that Dolt. 45's rhetoric has any influence at all on rightwing terrorists and wannabe terrorists. Kellyanne Conway says it's late night comics, instead.

Jewish doctor, nurse treated synagogue shooting suspect with compassion

They took good care of his wounds, but he was really angry when he woke up after surgery and discovered that he'd been circumcised.
