Both were laced with white supremacist beliefs echoing a baseless extremist conspiracy theory about a plot to diminish the influence of white people.

The Venn diagram of people cheering Musk's Twitter purchase and 'free speech' overlaps a little too much with 4chan and Discord posters who post like Gendron.

It's impossible to police at present unless we get at the US socioeconomic divide.

Quite the conspiracist. A daily dose of dodgy right wing media is not good for impressionable weak minds. Or maybe it was the poison laced chicken sandwich.

Has anybody tried to blame video games yet?

Here's another photo of the perpetrator. A nasty piece of work:

"It wasn’t clear if any of the people who accessed Gendron’s diary or saw his livestream did anything to alert the authorities or attempt to stop the attack. Discord said that it removed Gendron’s diary as soon as it became aware of it, in accordance with the company's policies against violent extremism."

If it is made clear some people saw it and did nothing to alert authorities, they, and the platform (people who run it), should be charged with accessories in all ten murder counts.

You yourself have admitted to being an adherent, right?

There's a few on here, but none will admit to it now, of course. If I remember rightly it's the same people who believe Jessica Arden is a "left wing Marxist."

Indeed...thanks for agreeing with me....

No, I am saying this is going around for both black and white

Uh-huh. Do you believe in Replacement Theory?

Yes

For both black and white, I was specific on that. Try not to cut out my words next time.

Funny....his online manifesto is filled with MAGA-world rhetoric...guess you think they're all socialists too...

He claimed to be a socialist and not a conservative, kid was all over the place, so he took conservative and liberal attributes.

Silencing free speech vs an accomplice to mass murder?

So liberals still want silencing free speech and want to blame conservatives for their lack of Will to enforce gun laws in their own State? Liberal dodge, says a lot about you guys.

The perpetrator, Payton Gendron, was wearing a Nazi "Black Sun" symbol on his chest.

It's a symbol also used by Russia's Wagner Group in Ukraine. The Neo-Nazi death squad employed by Putin to invade Ukraine.

How can conservatives help the problem when they will talk about any other murder except the one right in front of them?

They’re talking more about the victims families, something the left should try, it would help the left, give people a sense that they care.

Funny how you leftist and this leftist news organization failed to report on the two black nationalist who hated white people and killed many of them and also the Chinese Nationalist who shot up a Church full of Taiwansee because he hates Taiwan.

I know it doesn’t fit the leftist narrative and it’s funny how the leftist have been for several years now bragging about the great replacement theory on the news.

This kid is a nut job! His so called manifesto is all over the place. He considers himself a nazi, he is also a communists. So the only white nationalist murders that we have heard of, but according to the corrupt FBI and DOj white nationalist are the biggest threat to America. When

When Merrick Garland was ask in front of congress to show proof of all these white nationalist threats he couldn’t, because there are none. He was ask about the black nationalist threats and he refused to answer.

As with Russia, China is the one who’s making militaristic threats and trying to bully her neighbors. As with Russia, China is not to be trusted or believed.

This replacement theory seems to have some conservatives nervously hedging their bets.

It’s quite obvious even they can smell something rotten here.

-1 ( +9 / -10 )

Which one is the more serious problem, the crazy killer or the society that created and armed him?

2 ( +7 / -5 )

What's scarry is how so many people support the same theories as this crackpot shooter. It's like they're saying, "Well, he does have a point."

-2 ( +9 / -11 )

Hardly.

Not just them or liberal whites….

Apologies for mistake of comments regarding Russia and China. . .Mistake, sorry.

No. Liberals want conservatives to stop lying about their racist intent, to own up to the fact that their race baiting and coded words, their advancement of replacement theory (which used to be called white genocide) is the proximate cause for much racial violence in the US. Liberals want the right wing that eggs racial violence on to at least be honest and say right up front they think blacks or hispanics are inferior and that what they have been saying all these years is the reason for such attacks. Say it out loud. We all know it is how you think. Don't deny it. I'm an old white guy. People where I live assume I'm as bigoted as they are and say what is really in their heart, using all the proscribed racial epithets. So please do not try to tell me whites in the US aren't bigoted and actually believe this tripe about replacement theory because I hear whites talk about it right to my face. We're sick of lying conservatives saying they aren't bigots when their words and actions, and how they vote says otherwise.

Has the perpetrator that you wish to live on with 3 meals a day and a hot shower indicated his alliance to the left or right yet?

@desert tortoise

So are you saying the two black nationalist who killed people in Waukesha and shot people in New York plus the Chinese man who shot and killed Taiwanese in a church is all made up by the right?

Or how about the countless number of times the left have lied about Russian collusion?

Since Japan today refuses to report of these other killings and shootings by extremists then here ya go!

It’s not funny but sadly conspiracy theories tend to come from the right, as this one does.

I read about those tragedies here on JT, on CNN, on BBC, on Fox. Everywhere.

DT - amen, old white American guy here too, and can confirm - a whole lot of white Americans are racist and a lot of them don't even know it.

Hopefully your comments are removed. And no, it isn’t censorship.

Stay on topic and talk about this tragedy instead of anything else.

Sigh. So predictable

This happened in country trying to send $40billion to a country that shares its government and military with the Azov White supremists. What message does this send to Replacement Theory adherents?

Here's another photo of the perpetrator. A nasty piece of work:

Lol No, it's a Tweet trying to draw a spurious connection between the shooter in Buffalo, and the Azov Battalion. Absurd.

This guy was a ticking time bomb, just like the Parkland Florida shooter. Very preventable.

What did they make up? Be specific.

We know what bass' answer will be: "all of it".

There can't possibly be a way to link right-wing terrorism to white hate speech.

I mean c'mon.

Bass: No, you’re just angry because some of us are not willing to listen to one-sided liberal angry attacks

The article is about conservatives killing black people. I guess liberal words are worse?
