Will the US media own up to their culpability in radicalizing this young man?

-8 ( +2 / -10 )

Titled "The Inconvenient Truth," it railed against the dangers of mass immigration and warned that Hispanics will eventually take over the economy and government. The writer argued that attacking "low-security" targets was a way to "fight to reclaim my country from destruction."

This is the kind of filth that comes out of Trump's mouth and Twitter every day - and the same hate-speech that you get every night from Hannity and Limbaugh.

The entire right-wing media is a co-conspirator in these attacks and should be held legally accountable.

This is the kind of filth that comes out of Trump's mouth and Twitter every day - and the same hate-speech that you get every night from Hannity and Limbaugh.

And it's exactly why every mass shooter since 2016 has been a Republican. Their leader is stoking this environment of hatred, and their MSM only blows air on the fire.

More mass shootings in the US this year, than there have been days this year.

Meanwhile, the House passed HR 8 in March. This bill establishes new background check requirements for firearm transfers between private parties and has had no action from the Moscow Mitch "Turtle" McConnell led Senate.

S894 was introduced in the senate in April "To authorize dedicated domestic terrorism offices within the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to analyze and monitor domestic terrorist activity and require the Federal Government to take steps to prevent domestic terrorism." It too sits in the Moscow Mitch "Turtle" McConnell leg senate with no action since April.

Some, but not all states have passed "Red Flag" laws which allow a family member or police to petition a judge to remove guns from individuals who pose a threat to themselves or others.

We have seen no action on this from the republican controlled Senate despite the attempts by the democratic controlled House. Republicans have zero solutions and are only capable of obstructing.

Once again the Trumpers close their eyes and close ranks to protect their sainted one - the one that traffics in hate and division. Sure, someone who says some Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists are "very fine people" isn't doing anything to ferment violence and hate... What a crock.

And the disenfranchised white males that sit all day long listening to the even more hate-filled rhetoric on Fox News and the other right wing hate machines decide to internalize that hate and act...so they go to their armories in their basements and haul out an assault weapon with a 100 round magazine and head to the closest Walmart, or theater, or elementary school.

Fact: Of the 10 most deadly mass shootings since 1949, four have occurred from 2017 to present. There's a reason for that - and that reason resides in the White House...

https://edition.cnn.com/2018/02/14/health/parkland-among-deadliest-mass-shootings-trnd/index.html

And the spineless Repubs will do nothing to upset their NRA Masters...

Democratic leaders in Congress responded to the pair of shootings with a call for action. They urged Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to hold an emergency session to debate gun control legislation. McConnell’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Moscow Mitch again Missing in Action...

If we want common sense gun control, we have to vote out every Repub from dog catcher to the White House... Let's get started.

Just no "good-guys" with firearms in firearm and tough-guy rich Texas. There goes that nonsense argument. The Alamo held out longer than that.

The root cause is that more and more adult men become social outcasts these days because they are eliminated from jobs market. This isn't an American problem. ironically, although being well known as a low crime country, Japan isn't unfamiliar with murdering rampages among the developed countries either. The nation is still licking the wound from that terrible Arson attack.

The president has to give a clear speech condemning white nationalism and racial hatred, but he won't. The white nationalists are an important part of his base.

As far as I understand it, white nationalists don't support Trump because his administration has seen the highest level of legal immigration in US history.

I think a lot of people who oppose Trump are missing something important. Many Trump supporters would be classed as white nationalists by some. They're not. They are just traditional working class Americans who generally vote Republican.

Genuine white nationalists see Trump as a pro-immigration president, and thus see him as part of a system that they are opposed to.

He is often called the leader of white nationalists in America. So, what he says kind of represents what quite a few of that group think.

I am just replying to what Sneezy said, which was:

Weird that they keep praising him and committing mass murders in his name then.

"Praising him and committing mass murders"

If that is the case, there should be some examples of white nationalists who commit mass murders who have also praised Trump.

Trump became president in Jan 2017. It doesn't matter if it fell from 2017 to 2018, it is still the same administration. What I am saying is that from when Trump became president to the present, the level of legal immigration into the US has been the highest compared to any other administration.

That will likely come out later.

What we do know are these facts;

This shooter posted a virulent anti-immigrant and anti-Hispanic statement on social media before committing this atrocity.

President Trump has stated; "Mexican immigrants are criminals and rapists".

Said of Jeb Bush; "He likes illegals because of his wife"...

Said a Mexican-American US citizen judge wasn't qualified to sit on an immigration case

Trump Tweet in 2013: Sadly, the overwhelming amount of violent crime in our major cities is committed by blacks and hispanics-a tough subject-must be discussed.

Said of the caravans coming to the border; "it's an invasion"...

InJune said; "Mexico must stop the invasion of our Country by Drug Dealers, Cartels, Human Traffickers, Coyotes and Illegal Immigrants."

Said during a rally in May in Panama City Beach, Florida, Trump spoke about the border patrol agents working to stop migrants from crossing the border illegally. When he asked the crowd, "How do you stop these people?" one rally attendee shouted, "Shoot them." At first laughing, Trump responded, "That's only in the [Florida] panhandle, can you get away with that statement."

I rest my case....

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Yes: https://heavy.com/news/2019/08/patrick-crusius-social-media-trump-twitter/

Fair enough.

However, these are just likes of Trump posts of twitter. Can you find anything in Crasius typed or verbally said in which he praises Trump?

As the article you posted a link to states:

but claims Trump shouldn’t be blamed because his anti-immigrant beliefs predated the president.

My ideology has not changed for several years,” the manifesto, which you can read more about here, says. My opinions on automation, immigration, and the rest predate Trump and his campaign for president. I putting this here because some people will blame the President or certain presidential candidates for the attack. This is not the case. I know that the media will probably call me a white supremacist anyway and blame Trump’s rhetoric. The media is infamous for fake news. Their reaction to this attack will likely just confirm that.”

I think you are trying to convey that Trump has caused this, or that Trump is heavily responsible for causing the enviroment. I'm saying it's not that simple.

Something deeper, beyond Trump is responsible for this. I don't think it would have made any difference if there was a different president.

Oh please, we understand complete loyalty and devotion is required for Trump Land, but these are facts;

This individual had a hatred for immigrants and Hispanics...

He expressed his support for Trump's hate-filled, anti-immigrant tweets...

He made a point of saying "don't blame Trump", doing exactly what all Trumpers do - try to protect this President.

He took the chant at the Florida rally to "Shoot Them" literally - the one the President didn't call out, didn't say "we don't do that", didn't say "that's not American" - he just laughed an said "you can only do that Florida"...

Well, this Trump-supporting shooter showed you can do it in Texas too....

This shooter posted a virulent anti-immigrant and anti-Hispanic statement on social media before committing this atrocity.

President Trump has stated; "Mexican immigrants are criminals and rapists".

Which he meant about many of the gang members like MS-13 and other gang and Cartel members trying to get into the States and through through our open borders, open because the Democrats refuse to take any action-Fact.

Said of Jeb Bush; "He likes illegals because of his wife"...

Taken way, way out of context. That was not what he said.

Said a Mexican-American US citizen judge wasn't qualified to sit on an immigration case.

He said, the judge being of Mexican origin and an Obama appointee would never give him a fair shot or not be politically bias.

Trump Tweet in 2013:  Sadly, the overwhelming amount of violent crime in our major cities is committed by blacks and hispanics-a tough subject-must be discussed.

That is true, that’s not a racist thing to say and there are a multitude of reasons for it, just like in our prisons, The inmate population is mostly comprised of blacks and hispanics, but to deny that is not dealing with reality and talking about it doesn’t make you a racist. The data is available to view.

Said of the caravans coming to the border; "it's an invasion"...

 The Democrats first said earlier this year that it is a manufactured crisis and now all of a sudden they’re screaming there is a crisis at the border, so the Democrats are confusing bunch, now they are desperate and want something done and complain we have to do something to fix this crisis, just makes you want to hit the head against the wall, because still, the Democrats do nothing but complain and that’s all they do.

InJune said; "Mexico must stop the invasion of our Country by Drug Dealers, Cartels, Human Traffickers, Coyotes and Illegal Immigrants."

110% correct.

Said during a rally in May in Panama City Beach, Florida, Trump spoke about the border patrol agents working to stop migrants from crossing the border illegally. When he asked the crowd, "How do you stop these people?" one rally attendee shouted, "Shoot them." At first laughing, Trump responded, "That's only in the [Florida] panhandle, can you get away with that statement."

Yes, that was said, but it has nothing to do with the shooter.  You have people that are sick and tight not frustrated at what is happening with the border and I knew from last year that the Democrats keep doing this more and more people are going to express their concerns into anger towards Democrats as well as anger towards the government not doing anything about the border crisis. There is no justification for what this monster did, but as a result a lot of people are getting angry and that is no excuse for taking violent action to hurt or to kill anyone, but because of the lack of action and urgency of the government you’re starting to see more anger in more hate growing. The lack of concern and lax and open borders, the demonization of ICE and the border patrol is not winning the Democrats any friends or support and as long as there is no action or a stop to illegals and sanctuary cities, I’m deeply worried this is just the Beginning.

Ok, I will concede to that, fair enough, but doesn’t prove at all your a racist. Immigrant wife or wives to be exact, Jewish children, having a black women...live in the WH another secretary of HUD, it just gets harder and harder to make a case he’s a racist. The Democrats have pretty much lost the fight on that one. Another narrative debunked.

And why didn't he call and shut down the guy who yelled "Shoot Them"?

Why don’t the Democrats seal....never mind, I already know why. As for Trump not stopping the chant, Don’t know why and I won’t speculate, but I will say, you have a lot of people angry at what is happening at the border, wrong as those words are, it’s understandable given the crisis.

He didn't - and nuts like this take him at his word...and this is what results....

Ok, like with Maxine Waters saying to get into Trump supporters and their staff and in their faces and to follow, harass and tell them they are not welcome or like when Obama said, get in their faces, Sanders, Tlaib, AOC, They’re doing the exact same thing, going to McConnell’s house, harassing Tucker Carlson’s daughter in a public place, or the Bernie supporter that shot congressman Scalise, Andy Ngo who suffered a brain hemorrhage from the violent Antifa so many incidents, but all these people are responsible for their actions and causing nuts like these to act out as you said.

You were the one that was saying these people were there long before white people came, that is true, but it is now officially in United States of America in there for anyone that comes in now or over the last 100 years it is the USA and as such, you are subjected to the its laws, we are a sovereign nation to come with that line, that is a losing argument. You can’t claim something that is not yours.

Two people same crime, same criminal background, same city, same judge, same age, but one is white the other black. Which one gets the longer prison sentence. Heck the white guy might not even get a prison sentence.

Ok, but again, that’s one version and the other version is, you need to look at the persons background and priors which all are contributing factors and conduct in determining how long a person gets, probation etc.

Your valid reason is always the racist one.

No, it’s a realist. I’m not a racist, don’t like racism or racists. The racist argument is for people that want t make excuses, leave the debate, shut someone down or backed in a corner.

How are the democrats responsible for the evil white guy shooting up Mexicans like ducks in a shooting gallery that happened in a red republican sanctuary state lack of gun control laws. I don't see how the democrats fit into this crime.

Texas has the most border crossings. I think nearly 30 of them. Are those nasty democrats holding a gun to the heads of the republicans forcing them to have the crossing open.

There are 1.5 million illegals in this sanctuary state which Texas business welcome with open arms.

Easy, if you can blame Trump for this monsters actions, than you can blame Sanders, Waters, Omar, Tlaib, Pelosi as well.

Texas has the most border crossings. I think nearly 30 of them.

California has a few thousand and they’re doing absolutely nothing, in fact, they want to demonize the very people trying to bring order to this madness.

Are those nasty democrats holding a gun to the heads of the republicans forcing them to have the crossing open.

No, they’re holding the guns to Congress by not allowing for any border closing or any illegal immigration reform to take place as well as to block any attempt to build a wall, barrier or whatever liberals want to call to appease their conscious.

None of the dead victims of the mass shooting were illegals.
