Nobody called the shooter a thug or an animal though. And the GOP Politicians refuse to make a statement and are hiding from the cameras. Wonder why.

I don't hear about this much from the media. Agenda much?

Trump even sympathizes with the shooter. Just look at his language, he basically said there was no excuse, essentially validating the guys argument to begin with

White Nationalist being the in vouge term for white supremacists to call themselves since "white supremacist" has more of a stigma at this point. It isn't fooling anyone though.

Why would you want to defend either one unless you subconsciously identify as one of the other?
I see you've adopted the talking points. You people thought this cultural takeover of America would be easier.

Don't fall for their agenda and always be ready to cite stats. The Left will never touch the topics like the daily mass shootings in Chicago and Baltimore. Let's just take Chicago as an example of what the media won't touch:

Murders between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 by year:

2018: 561
2017: 660
2016: 777

Shooting victims between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 by year:

2018: 2,948
2017: 3,463
2016: 4,351

They already are. I saw Pete Buttigieg stating some BS about white nationalists...more buzz words the left creates like "assault weapon" "military grade" and now somehow morphing those that are loyal and devoted to our nation with white supremacy. And of course, the media will run with it, and the sheep will just eat it up.

Correct. This is what they do. I have flipped through some channels from time to time and over the past 24 hours and CNN and MSNBC were all anti-white propaganda. Buttgig was out stumping and also screaming about "white nationalists."

The next move for the Left will be to lump everyone together as a "white nationalist" who doesn't go along with their favorite talking points. Don't believe in global warming - white nationalist, against student loan bailout - white nationalist, against illegal immigration - white nationalist, against freebies for everyone - white nationalist, etc.

This will be their playbook.

A 2019 study found that the ban was associated with a reduction in mass-shooting related homicides during the 1994 to 2004 time period.

Better to just ignore facts and keep your tinfoil hat on, while people are being shot up all across the country, right?

Explain how your Trump bashing and gun grabbing desire is “solving” anything?
