sounds like a number of C-D leftists on this forum..

“Kill every fascist,” the shooter declared in 2018 on twitter, echoing a rallying cry of antifa ideologues. Over the next year, his tweets became increasingly violent. “Nazis deserve death and nothing else,” he tweeted last October. Betts frequently flung the label “Nazi” at those with whom he disagreed online.
Dayton shooter Connor Betts may be antifa’s first mass killer

Dayton shooter was armed counter-protester at Ku Klux Klan rally

The man who killed nine people in Dayton’s Oregon District was seen carrying a gun and protesting against the Ku Klux Klan at a rally downtown in May.

...
Federal authorities have found no evidence that race was a motivating factor in Sunday’s attack, FBI Special Agent Todd Wickerham said Tuesday. Six of the nine people Betts killed were African-American. Betts was white.

The Dayton Daily News reported Monday that a friend of Betts told police the would-be Dayton shooter discussed mass shootings. But the friend, Will El-Fakir, told the newspaper Betts was “definitely not a right-leaning person. His political views definitely leaned to the left.”


White guy kills six black people, with no mention of the other three people... and there is no evidence of race as a motivating factor - by federal authorities.

So if the guy was a "leftist".....why was the majority of the people he killed presumably "Leftist"? If his biggest motive was political then why did not the victims reflect that? Contrast the El Paso shooter with this guy. His victims represented his written motives.


From the very beginning they seemed to be ruling out race as a motive. I read accounts that said 30 seconds was not enough to be discriminating in a scenario like this. Are black people 70% of the crowd downtown in Dayton?



People keep talking about the abuse via overuse of the term racism or racist. I think, on the other hand, that people are HELL BENT on trying to deny that anything is racism that impacts blacks.

Stop making so much sense and using logic. It has no place here LOL.

The Trump voters are trying their hardest to equate the Dayton shooting to the El Paso shooting, but they've got nothing.

Nope. Crowds in the Oregon District have become more diverse over the years (the neighborhood in the 70s was mostly working-class whites, mostly of Appalachian heritage; in the 80s and into the 90s was a yuppie haven), but the patrons of the bars and restaurants still are largely white.

If he were targeting black people, he wouldn't have sprayed bullets all over a sidewalk populated with a mixed crowd.

I agree with this, very informative and fair and balanced post.

Plus, are we assuming this loser shooter was some kind of sharp shooter now? lol Or are we assuming his bullets had "eyes".

"Phew! For a minute there I was worried that this visit was about the victims."
