He sounds like an angry millennial.

He rails against both republican and Democrat

He spends as much time complaining about the environment, illegal immigration, the college scam/waste and future job loss due to automation.

And, I can understand how the shooter feels. Just because he went off the deep end, doesn't mean he does't have reasonable points.
No, he was a bigot, a murderer of children & a terrorist. Nothing reasonable - all hate.

It's a shame that all the politicians on the left can do is cry "gun control!"



The problem is mental health. There is nothing positive that will happen until the mental health component is dealt with. THAT doesn't mean abusing 5150 laws. It means people who are showing serious signs of impending violence are forced to get help.


This politicization of mass shootings is so disingenuous. Any politician that does it doesn't give a crap about anyone but themselves and their own intentions of power-grabbing. It sickens me.

So in essence, good guys with a gun don't mean **** in a life or death scenario. Nothing but lip service.
Precisely. This shows that argument, which they've trotted out again and again, is a falsehood.

Sad thing is that he has some valid concerns and seems intelligent..... too bad he couldn't channel it in more healthy ways that didn't take lives..

He is a murderer no more no less now.. I hope he gets the chair.

PS> It doesn't sound like he is squarely in blind follower of Trump supporter territory but doesn't want him blamed.

just one, if it were the right person.
you tell them apart from the shooter by noticing they arenít mowing down people at random.

Yep....definitely a Trump guy.

I putting this here because some people will blame the
President or certain presidential candidates for the attack. This is not the case. I know that the media
will probably call me a white supremacist anyway and blame Trump’s rhetoric. The media is infamous
for fake news.
Their reaction to this attack will likely just confirm that.

If someone was against global warming and they took a rifle and shot up the board of directors of Exxon, would you also say that person's view of global warming was unreasonable?

Too young to be millennial, and his manifesto shows he shares the right-wing hatred of immigrants.
