They’re awfully selective about what outrages them, aren’t they?
The shmuck who shot up El Paso said the magic word ‘white’ and he was all they could talk about — forget that his manifesto also mentioned the Eco-fascist motivation behind his killings (world too populated, too much consumerism) or the fact that he specifically mentioned his plan predated Trump’s election and was NOT motivated by the President. (His ideas are traceable to Camut, it seems.)
None of those details stopped the Left — media, politicians, blue-check-verified activists and the like — from laying the shooting directly at the feet of — you guessed it, President Trump.
Not that we at ClashDaily have ever wanted to place blame at anyone OTHER than perpetrators of violence or anyone making direct appeals to violence (yes, we’re looking at YOU, Antifa), but if they were to be consistent, they should play up the Dayton shooter’s past, too.
He’s got white skin, so they tried to lump him in as generically a ‘white supremacist’ to double down on the narrative.
Guess again, lefties. This guy was backing Warren. He’s a self-described Satanist. A Socialist. He saw the would-be ICE bomber as a ‘Martyr’ Antifa’s cause. And he has the typical leftist contempt for police.
Strangely enough, he complained about gun violence, too. Maybe this is his misguided way of forcing their hand?
[The shooter’s] Twitter profile read, “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back.” One tweet on his page read, “Off to Midnight Mass. At least the songs are good. #athiestsonchristmas.” The page handle? I am the spookster. On one selfie, he included the hashtags, “#selfie4satan #HailSatan @SatanTweeting.” On the date of Republican Sen. John McCain’s death, he wrote, “F*ck John McCain.” He also liked tweets referencing the El Paso mass shooting in the hours before Dayton. The Twitter page contains multiple selfies of [B***s].
…“This is America: Guns on every corner, guns in every house, no freedom but that to kill,” he wrote in December 2018. And, “’Tis! The pistol is a Beretta 93R, called the REK7 in BO4. Do love me some guns!” He also wrote, “Hammer, brick, gun.” On Feb. 14, 2018, he tweeted this at Sen. Rob Portman: “@robportman hey rob. How much did they pay you to look the other way? 17 kids are dead. If not now, when?” That was the date of the mass shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida.
There was more like that.
The Twitter account painted a picture of a left-wing anarchist and discontent, very far from the anti-immigration manifesto posted by Saturday’s El Paso gunman.
Politically, B***s was on the far left. His pinned Top Tweet was a retweet of someone else’s claim that “Millennials have a message for the Joe Biden generation: hurry up and die.”
When another Twitter user posted a picture of Ms. Warren and 2020 Democratic presidential rival Kamala Harris and asked “co-Presidents?” B***s poured scorn.
“Nahh, but only cuz Harris is a cop – Warren I’d happily vote for,” he replied.
When noting that alt-right demonstrators were marching in Charlottesville, a rally that later ended in the death of Heather Heyer, he exhorted his followers: “Kill every fascist.”
According to Heavy, B***s also shared posts about “concentration camps” at the border and wrote, “Cut the fences down. Slice ICE tires. Throw bolt cutters over the fences.”
Gee, where have we heard any of THAT rhetoric before?
They are trying pretty hard to lay the El Paso shooter at the President’s feet, but — if connections were to be drawn — there’s a FAR stronger case to be made why the load of trash that shot up Dayton is the embodiment of the Left’s policy. Especially since they are so reluctant to disavow Antifa.
Here comes the objection: Duh, what’s so horrible about supporting a group like that? It’s ‘jUsT aNtIfAsChiSt, iT’s rIgHt iN tHe nAmE!‘
The PartsianPress has been looking for ways to legitimize Antifa since he was elected, and in particular since they were the OTHER group Trump was denouncing in his now-infamous (and typically misquoted) good people / bad people on both sides comments following Charlottesville.
He also wrote that he enjoyed anime, railed against ICE and the industrial revolution, and made references to Satan. In May, he tweeted, “You’ll never be rid of me. I’ll haunt your life like a fucking vengeful spirit.” He added, “My Horoscope Just Reads ‘Doom.’” He shared posts of people outed for possibly being at a KKK rally in Dayton and wrote, “Know your enemies.”
Was it preventable?
High school classmates of the gunman who killed nine people early Sunday in Dayton, Ohio, claim he was suspended for compiling a “hit list” of those he wanted to kill and a “rape list” of girls he wanted to sexually assault. The accounts by two former classmates emerged after police said there was nothing in the background of 24-year-old C***** B***s that would have prevented him from purchasing the .223-caliber rifle with extended ammunition magazines that he used to open fire outside a crowded bar.
How many times will we see the system has treated veritable monsters with kid gloves only to have them go purchase a firearm they might otherwise have disqualified themselves from buying?
There are usually warning signs, too often ignored.
Stoneman Douglas was one. Sutherland Springs was another where the shooter should have been disqualified from purchasing a weapon, but somebody screwed the pooch, royally.
Cries for Socialism from the clamoring mob are growing louder. But we’ve got a President who’s holding his ground. Trump may not be leading the Battle of The Bulge like Old Blood And Guts, but he’s leading a domestic scrap against growing cries for Socialism and ‘free S#!T’ from the taxpayer pocket.
Trump may not have made his mark with rousing speeches about going off to battle, but he has his own rousing speeches. Ones about Freedom here on the home front.
“America was founded on liberty and independence – not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free.”
“Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country,”
Surrounded by cackling voices demanding we Turn America into a socialist scrap-heap, it takes a real fighter to hold his ground and push back. To borrow a phrase from WWII:
“They have him surrounded… the poor bastards.”
This fighting spirit has been captured in another of our own Doug Giles’ series of Art pieces capturing Trump’s fighting spirit in iconic moments in film and Americana. This time, Doug has put him in Patton’s shoes, and his very own MAGA helmet. This one is titled, simply: This is war.
