Based on that manifesto and the rationale behind it...I blame Thanos, at least the Hollywood version of Thanos.

You see, it was Thanos' idea that simply killing half the life in the universe would create sustainability.

Yep...I blame Thanos.

I'm not seeing the white supremacist part.

"...the idea of deporting or murdering all non-white Americans is horrific. Many have been here as long as the whites, and have done as much to build our country."

That's not the ideology of a white supremacist.

I TOLD YOU SO. I knew whatever he said during that solemn, faked speech that it was nothing but typical Trump B.S.

So unpresidential.

and you ignore that Beto started it by slandering the president and his supporters.

Are you talking about Trump or obama?

Not so secret amongst staffers and aides is the protocol of drug administration to Trump before those type of appearances. He has to be administered an anti-psychotic, such as Haldol, in order for him to get through the speech without going off the rails. His handlers want him to perform and speak certain words, no matter how disingenuous. That is why he appears zombie-like, sniffs continually and has a dry mouth during them: side effects.

OP, that’s not the EL Paso manifesto.

Here’s the first page of the manifesto, with clear documentation of where the killer obtained his ramblings from, aka right-wing media.

He’s clearly alt-right; and all you alt-righters gaslighting that he’s a progressive can go Fork themselves.

So let me get this straight - posters on THIS BOARD - where there are multiple daily posts about how illegal immigrants are ruining the country and Texas won't be white anymore and there's a hispanic invasion and there is nothing wrong with detention camps - are actually upset that a bunch of Hispanics were shot to death. Sure, Jan.

Actually, reading the entire thing, it is the same basic mindset as any statist, just taken to a much higher degree.

He checked off a ton of SJW rants - environmentalism, Luddite warnings about automation, corporate takeover of politics, his personal economic outlook being subsumed by the political/connected class, etc. This differs from the idiot whacking someone with a bike lock because their target is wearing a MAGA hat only by degree, not by kind.

This knucklehead, like AntiFa and the rest of the not-so-non-violent protesters, has decided some group of people in this country is representative of their political enemy, and he is doing something about it. He just took it a whole lot farther than any of those masked idiots are willing to. He's mad as hell at Democrats ad Republicans, but instead of attacking them, he attacks what he considers a legitimate proxy. Same as someone with a MAGA hat being attacked as a proxy for Trump, a single white person being attacked as a proxy for all bougie white devilry, a single homosexual being attacked as a proxy for all gays, etc.

It's the same freaking thing.

And really, it's not much different, at least in kind, to people doing their vengeful voting to have government smite their conjured enemies. The leftist votes Left to smite evil rich white people. The right winger votes Right to smite the hippie dippy SJWs. The black votes to smite the white person. straight person votes to smite the homosexual. Etc etc. Everyone who votes hoping that their chosen representative politician will do something TO or AGAINST someone else is using the exact same thinking this manifesto writing weirdo used.

They have decided there is a problem, they have assigned blame, and they have found a way to smite those they do blame. Most people just do the ballot box circle jerk and leave it there. This guy decided to take a more efficient path than waiting on government to do anything. But the thinking is the same.

People aren’t nearly as vindictive as your media tells you they are. (Or as much as you’d like to think they’d act similarly to you........)

Not to mention you probably read the manifest posted by the OP, which was the wrong manifesto.

The El Paso shooter's SJW rants are similar to the Garlic Festival shooter's rages against rich white Silicon Valley techies.

I hope I'm wrong about this but it seems that some young men are being radicalized by being overexposed to repetitive SJW dogma, it convinces them that they are "oppressed victims," and they lash out, violently.
