Nine Themes in El Paso Shooter’s Manifesto the Media Ignored to Blame Trump
https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/...o-blame-trump/

When you read the manifesto you find: (from the article cited)
1 – The shooter stressed the environmental aspects of his motivations by naming the manifesto “The Inconvenient Truth,” clearly utilizing the namesake of Al Gore’s climate alarmist documentary.

2 – The screed ranted against Democrats and Republicans and specifically blamed corporations for allegedly fueling economic woes.

3 – One of the main themes inside the manifesto was anti-corporatist ideology. It repeatedly claimed that corporations were engaged in a conspiracy to replace human workers with “automation.” At one point, the shooter even writes that his life was ruined because of the purported move toward automation: “My whole life I have been preparing for a future that currently doesn’t exist,” he writes. “The job of my dreams will likely be automated.”

4 – The author repeatedly blamed corporations for “the destruction of our environment.”

5 – The document claimed “many” Republican Party “factions” sold out to corporations.

6 – The manifesto promoted far-left policies such as universal healthcare and a “universal income.”

7 – The document blamed the Trump administration for recently nearly doubling the number of guest worker visas this summer

8 – The manifesto blamed the “American lifestyle” for “destroying the environment of our country,” and claimed this so-called “decimation of the environment is creating a massive burden for future generations.”

9 – Far from singularly expressing ultranationalist ideology, the manifesto actually slams Americans and calls for the general population to be forcibly decreased.

Very proggy.

Ya know, there's nothing like 2 mass shootings in 2 days to take the focus off the $16 billion that Elijah Cummings can't account for in Baltimore.
In fact, looking at recent history it seems there tends to be a mass shooting or so right around the times when a high ranking Democrat or the party itself has some serious 'splainin' to do. Not every time, but enough times to make me wonder considering the leftists have a LONG history of having the attitude of the ends justifying the means, no matter the costs.

The ALT-left have proven conclusively they have no problem murdering millions of their own people. There are about 70 million gun owners in the US holding onto around 300 million firearms and an estimated 1 trillion rounds of ammo. NOW you know why the leftists are so uppity about firearms. You can't force your odious, dehumanizing ideology on the masses when they are well armed and willing to use said arms if necessary.

'I'M THE SHOOTER': El Paso suspect told police he targeted 'Mexicans', says report
Reuters

Shooting suspect Patrick Crusius, charged with capital murder for a mass shooting at a Walmart store in El Paso, is seen in this police photo released from El Paso, Texas, Aug. 5, 2019.El Paso Police Department / Handout via Reuters
EL PASO — The suspected gunman accused of killing 22 people in a shooting rampage at Walmart in El Paso, Texas last weekend confessed while surrendering and told police he was targeting “Mexicans,” according to an El Paso police affidavit released on Friday.
The suspect, Patrick Crusius, 21, came out of his vehicle, stopped at an intersection, “and stated out loud ‘I’m the shooter’,” Detective Adrian Garcia said in the affidavit on Sunday, a day after the shooting.
Crusius has been charged with capital murder and is being held without bond.
The affidavit said Crusius waived his right to remain silent after he was taken into custody and told detectives he entered the Walmart with an AK47 and multiple magazines.
“The defendant stated his target (was) Mexicans,” the affidavit said.
Crusius is accused of shooting and killing 22 people and wounding two dozen more on Saturday, shortly after a manifesto appeared online explaining his motivation and decrying a “Hispanic invasion” of the United States.
Most of those listed as dead had Hispanic names.
GUN CONTROL DEBATE
Just hours later, a gunman wearing body armor and a mask opened fire in a crowded neighborhood in Dayton, Ohio, killing nine people, including his own sister.
President Donald Trump visited both communities on Thursday and was met with chanting protesters who accused him of inflaming tensions with anti-immigrant and racially charged rhetoric.
Authorities said Crusius drove 11 hours from his hometown of Allen, Tex., near Dallas, to perpetrate a massacre in the predominantly Hispanic city of El Paso. Authorities say the mass shooting is being investigated as a hate crime and act of domestic terrorism.
Democratic presidential candidates have accused Trump of fanning racist, white nationalist sentiments with anti-immigrant, racially charged language at rallies and on Twitter. They said he has created political climate conducive to hate-based violence.
Trump suggested on Friday he could persuade the powerful National Rifle Association lobby group to drop its strong opposition to gun restrictions after recent mass shootings that have reignited the gun control debate.
Nearly half of all Americans believe another mass shooting in the United States is highly likely soon, according to a Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll released on Friday.
White House officials and big social media companies met on Friday to talk about how to curb extremism online after the shootings but the White House declined to comment on who took part in the closed-door session.

Craig Zobel breaks silence on 'The Hunt' film release drama
WENN - World Entertainment News Network
Published:
August 19, 2019
Updated:
August 19, 2019 6:59 PM EDT
The Hunt: Private Hunting Experience (Spot)
featured by
Craig Zobel, the director of “The Hunt”, agreed to pull the release of the controversial film following the tragedies in Texas and Ohio, even though he still thinks the action thriller deserves to be seen.
The film, which centres upon a sporting manhunt as a well-off group tracks down and kills 12 strangers, was deemed too explosive for the current climate following seven days of mass shootings in America earlier this month.
Zobel insists he never set out to make a film that might incite violence, but he understood why the release of the movie had to be pulled.
“Our ambition was to poke at both sides of the aisle equally” he told Variety. “We seek to entertain and unify, not enrage and divide. It is up to the viewers to decide what their takeaway will be.
“I wanted to make a fun, action thriller that satirized this moment in our culture, where we jump to assume we know someone’s beliefs because of which ‘team’ we think they’re on … and then start shouting at them. This rush to judgment is one of the most relevant problems of our time.
“I was devastated by going to sleep to El Paso and waking up to Dayton (shootings). These types of moments happen far too often. In the wake of these horrific events, we immediately considered what it meant for the timing of our film. Once inaccurate assumptions about the content and intent of the movie began to take hold, I supported the decision to move the film off its release date.”
Studio chiefs at Universal immediately paused the marketing campaign for the satirical horror movie after more than 30 people were killed in two separate mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, and they then decided to shelve the release altogether out of consideration for the victims and survivors.
“While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for ‘The Hunt’, after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film,” a statement from Universal read. “We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film.”
The Hunt was due to hit U.S. cinemas on Sept. 27.

With an attitude towards guns such as some Americans have, lax vetting of those that want to get guns, proliferation of guns and ease to get them, societal pressures, financial stress, etc., it's not hard to figure that people would want to shoot people.

You are definitely describing the trump derangement syndrome types we are all suffering through here as well as anyone who would support the bushes.

The answer is to actually do politics based on issues and proper solutions, not parties, and to be a centrist, not an totalitarian ideologue.

Texas grand jury indicts accused Walmart shooter: Reports
Reuters
Published:
September 12, 2019

A Texas grand jury on Thursday indicted the man accused of killing 22 people and wounding 26 others in a shooting last month at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, who had told authorities he was targeting Mexicans, a local prosecutor said.
Patrick Crusius, 21, was indicted for capital murder and will face the death penalty if he is convicted, El Paso County District Attorney Jaime Esparza said in a statement.
“The District Attorney’s Office will continue to work hard to ensure that justice is done and is committed to assisting the victims through the judicial process,” Esparza said.
Crusius is accused of driving 11 hours from his hometown of Allen, Texas, near Dallas, to El Paso on Aug. 3 and firing at shoppers with an AK47 rifle inside a Walmart store, after which he surrendered to officers who confronted him outside the store.

Crusius confessed while surrendering and told police he was targeting Mexicans, according to an El Paso police affidavit released days after the shooting.
Most of those killed were Hispanic.
A four-page statement believed to have been written by the suspect and posted on 8chan, an online message board often used by extremists, called the Walmart attack “a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas.”
After the indictment against Crusius was announced, Texas Governor Greg Abbott released a 14-page report detailing several recommendations on how to stop mass shootings in the state.
“Solving the problems that have led to these horrific events will take more than governmental action,” Abbott, a Republican, said in a statement. “It will require parents, families, churches, law enforcement, community groups, schools and others working together to fortify the social fabric of our society.”
The Texas killings were followed just 13 hours later by a mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, where a gunman wearing body armor and a mask killed nine people in less than a minute and wounded 27 others in the city’s downtown historic district before he was shot dead by police.
The two massacres have reverberated across the political arena, with Democratic presidential candidates calling for stricter gun laws and accusing President Donald Trump of stoking anti-immigrant tensions.
The indictment against Crusius will not be available to the public until it has been filed by the District Clerk’s Office. By law, the clerk’s office has 10 days to file the indictment, a spokeswoman for Esparza said.
