El Paso shooter cherry picked ideologies and platforms.

He liked the universal basic income thing, for sure.

He supported the NZ Christ Church massacre ( inspiration?)
He was obsessed with racial purity.
He was into the white replacement conspiracy theory.
He expressed concern Texas was going to go Democrat.

Actually he isn’t, and you people keep posting falsified manifesto’s in a weak attempt to spread lies.

He’s clearly alt-right.

The Dayton shooter supported Warren.

Guess he was unaware she has consistently opposed high capacity magazines and high powered assault weapons.

I also heard that Sgt Peppers was his favorite album. Are you going to throw Paul and Ringo in jail too?

So now he lifts and slams kids to the ground.

Quite a patriot.

I think this is highly telling. There is a thread about the political response to a mass shooting, indicating it is inadequate. The response is what is in question here, not the relative merits of the murderers in various shootings. What thinking you may be capable of is rendered completely inactive by your ideology.

I cannot imagine in what way Democrats can decry the horror of gun violence more vigorously than they have. That our supposed leader is inciting violence at every rally is a fact. And that democratic candidates are not is a fact. Thus the apparent difference in response.

A racist radical right wing extremist is a leftist?

Fake news.

Trump and his minions are trying to blame their misdeeds on those who oppose them.

I know that Trump blames the "Fake Media" as a cause for reporting all this violence, and against HIM, but I do know these instances of violence were reported back in those days. I am Trump's age and grew up in NYC as he did. Guess he never watched TV News then? While we had no Internet or 24 hour news cable TV, it was most definitely reported (far more slowly) on CBS,ABC, NBC, and COMMENTARY given by reporters on the scene, it most definitely was reported.

Sorry, Trump and his supporters, I know instances of racial violence were all over the TV channels back in those days when they happened. So your "Make America Great Again" doesn't fly with Trump's lament about Fake Media for those of us who were alive back then.
