Synagogue shooting

Here we go again with more hate.

A gunman attacked a Pittsburgh synagogue during services Saturday morning, killing multiple people and wounding three police officers, among others.

The suspect opened fire inside the Tree of Life Synagogue during a baby-naming ceremony, Philadelphia’s attorney general told the Associated Press.

“We had services going on in the chapel when we heard a loud noise in the lobby area," Stephen Weiss, 60, told the Tribune-Review. Recognizing the sounds as gunshots, Weiss said that he was able to escape through the sanctuary.

As usual, in your rabbid haste to regurgitate false info from infowars and such, youve given incorrect details. He was not anti-trump. If anything, he was far far right of trump, and made posts about trump supposedly being a jewish pawn

And even in his condemnation of this vile attack, Trump couldn't resist a bit of victim blaming disbelief
It never ceases to amaze me how cruel humans can be against fellow humans and animals, especially when in the pursuit of money and power.

I know, how sad for us as a country.


Last night on CNN Don Lemon brought the subject of this up, how Trump can't calm our Nation in times of trouble & sorrow and doesn't even try. He suggested that maybe it's time the past Presidents step up, (Bush, Clinton, Obama) and give their comforting speeches and then go back home. Stepping in for the President who is incapable of doing it.

Robert Bowers, alleged Pittsburgh synagogue gunman, left trail of chilling, anti-Semitic social media posts

October 27, 2018, 6:36 PM GMT
: https://www.google.com/am...46761.html

The man who authorities say opened fire at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pa., on Saturday morning, killing 11 people and injuring six others, had a long history of anti-Semitic social media posts.

The alleged gunman, Robert Bowers, 46, of Pittsburgh, was taken into custody after surrendering to police. He was transported to a local hospital with unspecified injuries. FBI Special Agent Bob Jones said that Bowers was armed with an “AR-15 style” rifle in addition to three handguns. Bowers was not known to law enforcement before Saturday, Jones added.
Pittsburgh’s CBS affiliate, Bowers walked into the building and yelled “All Jews must die” before opening fire. Federal officials are investigating the shooting as a hate crime.

hate crimes are happening more and more. perhaps trump supporters should realize that their backing an imbecile whose platform was fused with racists statements from the beginning of his run for potus is the real issue.
a very large percentage of his followers are of lower i.q levels.
federal judge says, "there is evidence." : https://www.yahoo.com/new...itics.html

What I don't get is, if people see anti-semetic or racist posts and threats, why don't they report it? Report it, it's not that hard.

I remember one time, there was this person on YouTube who threatened to massacre people just like the columbine boys. It could've been a troll, but who knows? I reported it, because, if something would've happened, I wanted to know that I TRIED to do something, that I tried to prevent a thing like that.

But too many people think it's all a joke, or that these people are just internet rambos and wouldn't really do it.......possible, yeah, but is it worth taking that risk?

Rest in Peace to the people who died and my thoughts are with their families and friends. bheart bheart bheart

He was definitely impacted by alt right media.




https://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-bombings-pipe-bombs-george-soros-1190003





Soros was a born to an upper middle-class Jewish family in Budapest and survived the Nazi occupation of Hungary.


Straight out of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Just moments ago, Lou Dobbs guest Chris Farrell (head of Judicial Watch) says Caravan is being funded/directed by the "Soros-occupied State Department".


Essentially, this guy believed that the caravan was being funded by Jews. Who is the main Jew that is being accused by right wing media as funding these caravans? George Soros. This all ties in to Charlottesville. When the racists were chanting "Jews will not replace us", I was confused by that for the longest time. Why in the world, or how in the world, or where in hell, did they get the idea that Jews were replacing us? Well, it is this, exactly. They believe that Jews are paying illegal immigrants to come into the US at extremely high numbers, to "subvert" our blood line. They believe that atheist Jews (like George Soros) are trying to muddy the bloodlines of every country in the world, except their own (and that is were the fight comes in with Israel and Palestine - because the Jews want to keep their bloodlines pure - since only pure blood lines have historically been the kings and queens of nations - the rulers of nations). Where does this story originate? In alt right circles - Rush Limbaughs, Breitbarts, type of conspiracy reporting.

It's kind of sad that these mass shootings aren't even surprising anymore. You hear news of a mass shooting and you immediately think "Must have been America" and lo and behold, it is. I'm playing a video game at the moment called Red Dead Redemption 2, where you get to live out a fantasy of living in the old west and be a cowboy. But it seems that too many Americans won't settle for the fantasy aspect and would rather that be a reality. Too many wannabe cowboys going around with guns in their holsters and a chip on their shoulder. And the worst thing about these kinds of shootings is that these are the kind of things that should bring you guys together to make sure nothing like this happens again. But instead, it just further drives you apart. The "right" get more overprotective about their second amendment and the "left" use these shootings for further political grandstanding. And somewhere, lost in the shuffle, are the many lives who were lost and the many more who have been irreparably damaged. And because of the widening divide, it's only a matter of time before it all happens again.

I don't think this is correct. Yes, one can always find political points being scored, but, at the end of the day, there is something rational about making the connection between the easy availability of machines designed to kill people and regular massacres involving such machines. And the conditions of possibility for that availability are unavoidably political.

Likewise, I don't think it's a lack of fuzzy bipartisanship that causes these massacres to happen. In this case, it seems to have been a right-wing nutjob with a hateful fantasy of Jews 'infesting' the homeland he would presumably have preferred to be ethnically 'pure', and, in his view, enabling other non-White migrants to enter in a globalist plot to 'replace' his kind. That's not sparked by a failure to 'reach across the aisle' politically; that's right-wing racist extremism of a kind that often festers in certain subcultures, which just so happens to be of a kind this president and his base have helped whip up to win power.

Like all the others, this guy was radicalized by Limbaugh, Hannitty, that fat fuck Alex Jones, etc. and then his hate was legitimized by Donald Trump.

Bowers was apparently opposed to the Trump administration, saying he did not vote for Trump and reportedly calling him a "globalist, not a nationalist."

In a post a few days before the shooting, Bowers wrote, “Trump is a globalist, not a nationalist. There is no #MAGA as long as there is a k*** infestation. #Qanon is here to get patriots that were against martial law in the 90’s to be ones begging for it now to drain muh swamp. But go ahead and keep saying you are #Winning.” That same day, Bowers wrote, “amazing amount of division on gab today. glas the overwhelming jew problem has been solved so we can now fight with each other.” In another message, Bowers wrote of Trump, “For the record, I did not vote for him nor have I owned, worn or even touched a maga hat.” Bowers is a registered voter but is unaffiliated.

Not necessarily fake news, but very misleading. There are many white nationalists who have stated that they do not support everything that Trump has done, but they do appreciate more of what he has done than what past presidents have done. This guy was pissed at Trump for acknowledging Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He also did not like that Trump allowed Ivanka to marry a "Jew" and convert to Judiasm. Those are really the only things the guy didn't like about Trump. I guarantee this guy's beliefs align with the ALT Right.

Thanks for point out that White Nationalists don't approve of Trump's treatment of Jewish people. That is because many people that oppose Trump because are AntiSemites.
