Would you blame it on his struggles with coming out as a gay man ?
If the shooter writes a manifesto on that issue -- then yes!

But it's been mostly white men so the far-right just says "mental health" and "thoughts and prayers."
So what do you want to do? Round up all the white men, shoot them in the head and then cremate the bodies and toss the ashes out to sea? But you don't believe in guns, so let's just push them head first into a massive fire pit or shove them into a giant gas chamber. But, what kind's of white men do you want to have expunged? All white men, even the Hispanic and Arab white men, or just the ones with European blood in their DNA? And why stop at men, might as well throw women in there too so they don't go and produce some mixed child that might have that killer gene lurking in the back of his head.

Come on now -- -the only reason you are outraged is because this time it was clearly someone who went after immigrants.

It doesn't support the left is the most violent group ever mantra your team likes to chant.

Left or right --- it's a HUGE problem in this country.

And yes - both sides pointing fingers, keeping score is sick.

It's just projecting. It's all the Left does! The white self-hatred is a little much.

But Republicans are running on Americans are under attack by illegals.

If you accuse Mayor Pete of inciting violence wit his words then you HAVE to accept that Trump's mantra for three years that illegals are 'ruining' this country and are 'attacking' our American values will also incite violence.

Oh look -- it did.....




And there is some truth that Anti-Fa violent members will use this kind of rhetoric to 'fight' against the violent white supremacists.

But it goes two ways -- politician on both sides use the argument.

When will people actually think about the things being said in the words?

Seems like you are on the opposing team. And yes, illegals are illegal.

A white guy shooting a few people is RARE. Blacks shooting each other every day is NORMAL.

Those home grown white nationalist terrorists egged on by Trump and other prominent right wingers are indeed huge jerks. That's putting it mildly.
