Can a psycho really be progressive or conservative? Labling him as anything but a psycho does not seem to make much sense.

A psycho can be influenced by the message that's coming to him in twitter, and he sees himself as mainstream, and "charged with acting" on the sentiments that he's hearing on TV and the radio, and twitter.

Nope. He's someone who snapped and took out his rage on what he percieved as the source of his pain....the people he hated.

Joblessness is in itself a source of civil unrest. The less dependents on a government welfare system, the lower the unemployment rate, the better. Achieving ambitious social projects like universal healthcare and UBI would become far more likely to succeed if tens of millions of defendants are removed.”

That sounds EXACTLY like Ronald Reagan and Rush Limbaugh. lol
Sounds more like adolf hitler when you also consider his racial views. The Nazis were right on social issues and left on economics. Many Trumpians are the same.

It seems the younger generation is more influenced by social media and take what they read as truth.
They have grown up connected 24/7.

El Paso shooter 21 years old
Ohio shooter 24 years old


Neither one old enough to have really experienced life outside of living at home with their parents.

Now this is the most accurate statement here.

Instead, they work very hard to twist the new information so that it lines up with their belief system. The classic example is a woman who sees clear evidence that her husband is cheating, but refuses to believe the evidence and calls the messenger a liar).

In this case, this is a thread about this monster is a right wing racist immigrant hater, and y'all have somehow turned him into a liberal.

Amazing. Here ya go, psych profs, free lesson. Just print it out.
No one projects like the right. "TDS" is also projection on their part

Dude, that guy's manifesto could have been copied and pasted from posts on this board.
All his assertions to Ubi (libertarian idea), environment are framed as a reason why we can't sustain immigration.

You and other leftists are the ones trying to make those opinions apply only to whites and not minorities. No Republican is saying that.

You are racebaiting for political reasons and you know it.

Trump has specifically said he is ok with legal immigration so your racist charge doesn't make any sense.

MOreover, Trump's immigration policy can't apply to white people who grew up in the US. Immigration policy can only apply to immigrants. Americans born in in this country already do not immigrate here. Your point is so absurd.
