for now would be to divide America into a confederacy of territories with at least 1 territory for each
race.
This physical separation would nearly eliminate race mixing and improve social unity by granting
each race self-determination within their respective territory(s). "

I can't stand The Donald. But how exactly has he caused americans to turn on each other? If anything he's galvanized Americans to take a stand, as the anti- white, virtue signalers have never been more powerful! ANY objection to open borders, Free stuff for illegals is swiftly dealt with. Anyone not 100% on board with opening the borders and giving anyone with brown skin and a sob story the keys to the Kingdom, is automatically called a racist, boycotted, doxxed, harassed, censored and threatened.
Right now in america illegals are golden, whites are evil, nonwhites can do no wrong. Most of america is united in this cause. Laws and common sense be damned, let em all in. Hate Trump for deplorable conditions at these detention centers, while ignoring the fact that conditions were poor under the Obama Adminstration, not to mention conveniently forgetting BO wasn't exactly a saint when it came to deportations and comments that would be considered offensive if a white person said them.

If anything, again, look at BO. He didn;t exactly conjure up memories of MLK in terms of race relations either.
I voted for Obama 2x, but There were issues there as well.

Edit: never mind- non whites do no wrong. Trump and YT are to blame for everything wrong the world

To be fair, deterrence is a factor for other criminals.... just not so much with a mass shooter who isn't concern about encountering possible lethal retaliation from armed individuals and has a death wish.

Even in the manifesto he stated that there's a level of deterrence from armed targets:

"Remember: it is not cowardly to pick low hanging fruit. AKA Donít attack heavily guarded areas to fulfill
your super soldier COD fantasy. Attack low security targets. Even though you might out gun a security
guard or police man, they likely beat you in armor, training and numbers. "

What "country" has 30 million invaders wandering about?


America was a nice concept...until globalism/liberalism got a hold of it.


It's toast now. So, no, you can not have our weapons. It is all we have left in this sinking ship.
There was never a single day in US history when there werent foreigners walking around.

And the number you used is closest to foreign born, which many of our founders werent even born here, so not sure your logic.

like Virginia beach?

San Jose? 5 dead including perp named Chi Dinh Ta
Pulse Nightclub-Omar Mateen
Virginia Tech shooting
Fort Hood
San Bernadino shooting


According to Gun violence Archive Database:
Of the twenty-five mass shootings in the Gun Violence Archive database for January 2019, 16 percent (four) of them were committed by white males; 4 percent (one) was committed by a Hispanic man; 64 percent (sixteen) were committed by African Americans; and in 16 percent, or four cases, the attacker’s race is unknown

This is only for one month, but still.


Yes YT men still commit over 50% of them. But your nonsense about them being all of one race and political persuasion was embarrassingly wrong.As much as you hate YT men and have an axe to grind with them, you're just plain wrong. Fact are facts, and your hatred of YT isn;t going to change that. Educate yourself, quit watching CNN and HuffPO and Vox and such, and read better sources.
you stated the recent mass shootings were done by ONE race ONE Gender and ONE political persuasion. Facts say otherwise
sorry Spanky;
You lose

Good Lord. Trumpís tweets about the shooting itself are an OK reaction. But sandwiched between two of them are several ďIím not racistĒ posts. Why canít he just display a little decency?

Only when he found a school that had no armed guards, did he stop, get out, and start shooting.

Some murderous nutcases ARE stopped by knowing a place has armed guards, or other law-abiding citizens who are armed and ready.

People who say "Any shooter is crazy enough to not care about the threat to him from armed citizens", is simply making up nonsense to try to push his own agenda, even after it's been refuted.

If we can stop SOME of them, wouldn't that be a good thing to do? It would certainly produce better results than govt laws have done so far.
