Wow. You are making value judgments on a mass murderer.

i.e. It's a hypocritical double standard. I can't believe how low Democrats will go in their constant endless derangement over Trump.

Of course they’re ignoring, even hiding his ideology, because it is their ideology. The Dayton shooting was as much warrens fault as elPaso was trumps.

The El Paso shooter’s cut/ paste manifesto was a mixed bag of ideology. For example, he copied the basic income thing right out of Yang’s playbook.

both shooters lean left and were progressive, no surprise.


Either way the only one responsible was the shooter himself in each case.

Think you are confusing the Dayton shooter with the El Paso shooter.

Not likely, the Dayton shooter agreed with Warren’s position on firearms.

So if I cut and paste your comments from C-D onto a manifesto and then go on a killing spree, you're responsible. Got it.

Don’t think either of them supported progressive rhetoric on firearms.

David Duke supports Trump. I don’t think Duke is representative of most Trump voters, or Republican.

The text you quoted, as of right now, is 100% fact. If it later turns out that motives are known, or a manifesto is found, that will change everything, but as of now, there is no judgement, only fact.


So tell us, what is the double-standard? How did anyone go low?

Facts are that the El Paso Shooter stated his motives clearly, and the Dayton shooter did not. What are you disputing?

Nothing remotely suggests Dayton shooter targeted black people. It remains unknown if he was even aware one of his victims was his sister.

El Paso guy drove across the state for 10 hours to target a specific demographic.
