Lucky for them they likely won’t be targeted.

Who's "Beto"? You mean Robert Francis O'Rourke, a 100% Irish white dude posing as if he's Hispanic?

He liked tweets that had the #BuildtheWall hashtag as well as “a photo using guns to spell out ‘Trump,’ and posts from Paul Joseph Watson, a far-right Youtuber who works with Alex Jones at InfoWars,” notes the Southern Poverty Law Center.



This horrific event falls right on Donald Trump's doorstep. He has created this environment of hatred and bigotry, and I have no idea how he sleeps at night. What a vile, poisonous, dangerous human POS Donald Trump is.

If he's anything like me, he sleeps in loose boxers so that people like you can more easily kiss my ass.

Nope, I think it has mostly to do with the media turning every shooter into legends. For crazies who are lonely, warped... going down like this is probably appealing. They want to be an episode on a crime show. They want their name to be apread far and wide. Their manifestos to be read, etc. Remember in NZ, didn’t the PM block the media from reporting his name. We do the opposite here. Not to mention we have become a everyone is a victim society, if you aren’t happy, it’s society’s fault.

I truly wish the press would not race to get sound bites from politicians who are in the midst of campaign mode - it ends up being politicking at its worst.
Good point. All of them should shut up and work on helping the city and the victims and families .

Let's clear some things up.

1.) The shooter is 100% at fault and the blame belongs on him, not Trump.

2.) Blaming Trump for this tragedy is delusional.

3.) Trump is NOT racist. He has every right to secure the border.

Ain't nothing leftist about railing against Mexicans and then killing a bunch of Mexicans.

Beto is a ********. Let the investigation come out before we start politicizing people's death.
