The shooter was only mimicking his mentor. You lead by example.

In a Walmart in Texas, and nobody was carrying? Surprising.

Yup. Somehow I don't think he thought of that term himself:

"The media is infamous for fake news. Their reaction to this attack will likely just confirm that."

Hint. It isn't an all or nothing game.

There are left leaning posters on this very forum who also agree with fiscal conservatives. There are right leaning independents like me that want single payer health care, cutting defense spending, and investment in education to include trade schools.

This whack job that shot up a Walmart is all over the board.
Just to break in on this forum, I'd say that he represents a new type of politics. It isn't really Republican or Democrat but I agree with you that the temptation is for people to simplify in that manner even when it's a poor comparison. The 2016 election drags on.

It's interesting to watch a new kind of radicalization take place and it's worth considering what the causes are. It's certainly not a US-only phenomena.

A few years ago, I never would have guessed that the politics of the future would be based on a fight between radical nationalists and xenophiles.

Can't say I would disagree with all he said. Most, if not all, is true and is happening as we can see from our own eyes. While I agree with his manifesto, unfortunately, the only thing I disagree with is the way he handled his disappointment to what is happening to America. A shooting spree is not a way to go.

As he mentioned in his manifesto, it's about the corrupt members in congress and not because he was a Trump guy as many on the Left is stating, just like what he said the Left will do.

While I agree with what he is saying, it's disheartening the path he chose to send his message out.

As well they should.
Trump incites violence. He advances the racist agenda of and gives cover to members of the KKK, neo-NAZIs, White Supremacists and other folks in the White Nationalist movement. That's WHY they love him.

Sounds like he leans Republican if you ask me.
Did you missed the part where he says the Republican party is also terrible. At the end he predicted the president would be blaimed.
