Right, he was only telling the truth. He is not a "jerk" by any means, being an honest, intelligent and caring individual, having so much else going for him besides, than many.

Trump lovers want you to know Trump had nothing to do with it, whatsoever.

Probably so, to a degree.
They didn't perpetrate it but they'll take a public stand on the matter and work their image. What politician wouldn't? Trump is a master at that.

So what?

Old “Moscow Mitch” isn’t going to do anything about these mass shootings, so somebody’s needs to speak out. Glad Pete is taking a stand. Beto, too.

No, it isn't. He is right. Look at the facts and data.
Nobody said anything about taking out the President. Quite a jump there!

NOT the words of a white nationalist.
I read the manifesto...he hated Mexicans/Hispanics, and was afraid the Democrats were going to take over.
I am sorry, I Didn't see anything like that in it.

He said nothing irresponsible or reckless. Facts are facts.
You all are way too touchy and get bent out of shape over everything.

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.

Just because data and facts say one thing. You can't just jump to the conclusion that anyone wants anything bad to happen to all white man. That is insane and ridiculous. No one is saying that at all.

So yes is true this nation does have a problem with Violent White Supremacists that are now feel emboldened by our current President.

So keep trying to spin it or defended until the next one happens.
They would have been having a fit, if it was done by a Muslim or Hispanic!

All Trump does is divide, divide, divide...we need a sane leader who will bring the nation back together as one again.
All of this hate is ripping our country apart. It needs to end.

They can delete until the cows come home, but the internet is forever. Those tweets were long ago archived in hundreds of places.

Trump is the one directly repsonsible. he knows it, and so do his fawning sycophants, a lot of whom have just figured out that Trump will be the reason they are defeated next year.

That's just a desperate attempt at lefty spin. If you really want to understand the shooter's motive, read his manifesto, NOT the NY Times' "spin" on it.

In the manifesto, the shooter...


Praises immigrants for contributing to the US
Complains about too many dependent migrants making the goals of universal health care and UBI much harder to achieve
Complains about overpopulation
Rages against corporations for stripping the US of resources
Etc.

Those are ALL left-wing ideology talking points.
