This Should be Interesting: The Communist Antifa Mass Shooter By John Steele
The latest US mass shooting is by a communist Antifa type:
“Connor Betts was named by police as the body armor-wearing, masked gunman who fatally shot at least 9 people, including his own sister, while wounding at least 27 more, in a popular bar and restaurant district in Dayton, Ohio. Betts was 24 and from Bellbrook, Ohio. Witnesses said he was wearing all black when he opened fire. Betts was killed by police, with six officers firing at least one round, and officials said the carnage might have been even worse were it not for their quick response. On social media, the suspect’s biography started to emerge. On his Twitter page, reviewed by Heavy, he described himself as “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back.” He wrote on Twitter that he would happily vote for Democrat Elizabeth Warren, praised Satan, was upset about the 2016 presidential election results, and added, “I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding.” The Greene County Board of Elections lists his party as “Dem.” So, we have a Leftist shooter instead of the usual right winger. Will the anti-gun lobby now advocate gun control so enthusiastically or will they wait until the next round of shootings? If terrorism, according to the mayor of London, is just the price one pays living in a big modern city, then mass shooting could be viewed as an extension of that principle. But, we can bet that the narrative played out is that ideology had nothing to do with this. But, if a shooter mentions an 1890 book on Darwinism, well, that is fascism, pure and simple.
As a footnote, the previous shooting in El Paso, is already being portrayed as an act not merely of white racism, but Anglo racism, according to the authorities:
“El Paso County Sheriff Richard Wiles says he is “outraged” after “this Anglo man came here to kill Hispanics.” His comment came in a Facebook post after a man from Allen, Texas, travelled nearly nine hours to El Paso where he is now accused of killing 20 people and wounding 26 more. Sheriff Wiles told the world in a Facebook post that he is outraged and “you should be too.” He called for people to rise up and hold our representatives “at all levels” accountable. “This entire nation should be outraged. In this day and age, with all the serious issues we face, we are still confronted with people who will kill another for the sole reason of the color of their skin,” the sheriff wrote. “I want representatives who will stand up against racism.” Sheriff Wiles says he is outraged at the apparent motivation of the shooter to kill people “for the sole reason of the color of their skin.”
Reality check: this is hard to do, as the ethnicity of the Garlic shooter is not mentioned in the media pieces, but I recall one post saying that he was of Italian/Iranian background. He is not an Anglo. Sure, racist and killer, but Sheriff Wiles, some facts please!
But facts don’t matter, for Trump’s mild rhetoric about immigration is being taken by the chattering class as making a call to arms by crazies:
If Trump had actually done something about the US immigration invasion the El Paso killings would not have occurred. We would then only have had the Leftist killers. So, Trump has some blame here, but not in the way the Left see it.
