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
Do you believe the El Paso shooter to be a white nationalist?

I understand what you are saying, and "by the guy" IS incorrect. All he did is leave the post on his twitter feed and liked it.

Do you think changes in any way that the guy is influenced/likes Trump?

He didn't create it, he approved of it.

finally. you could have saved both of us one hell of a lot of typing.

absolutely it changes the parameters. we have no idea why he liked it. he clearly likes guns - if someone had created one these out of guns, he would likely have 'liked' that too:

Got any links to credible news outlets, supporting your outlandish theory that "The Left" is trying to demonize white people?

Yeah, we have one. It's simple...since there is nothing else to say we have to come up with the most outlandish possibilities. It's every bit as true as the earth starting 6,000 years back and saddles on dinosaurs, but that doesn't stop millions from repeating it.

This is why we will lose the economic and social "wars" of the present and future. Reason, logic, truth and morality has zero to do with things......

One acts like the "white make AH" is a new thing! I got married very young....and we were well matched and happy. I had some peer (female) come to me and ask me why they could not find mates...this was about 1972!

I thought about it and told them "Most guys are arses". It was true then and it is true now. The guys who feel the world is against them are 100% correct - because they never learned how to be a person. Whether from parenting or society they somehow picked up the idea that Selfishness is a positive trait. They also feel entitled....never learned or figured out that they are just a speck...an ant...on this rock.

The results are evident...deplorables abound.

I know some very nice guys. Good men. But they are the exception...it often seems.

Admittedly, I haven't read the entire play-by-play for the El Paso case. Did the shooter surrender peacefully upon the good guys with guns (law enforcement) arriving, or did he shoot a bunch of people, get bored, and disarm himself voluntarily?

He apparently is showing no remorse for the murders.

The 'left' is not the enemy of this country, but the right wants to delegitimize them instead of acknowledging the unveilings truths of global warming, growing wealth inequality, and the fact that our politicians are bought and paid for by corporations and foreign governments/adversaries. Sure the 'left' in this country has its issues, but most I know are patriots that care about the well-being of this country and are responding to the growing extremism of the right. Right-wingers are programmed to hate anything that does not fit in their bubble of an imaginary world by Fox News, right-wing radio like Limbaugh, so on, etc., rather than logically analyzing their viewpoints and deduce that maybe what they are being spoon-fed to believe in is complete and utter baloney. It's not an issue of intelligence, but an issue of ignorance and stubbornness that plagues the right-wing and Trump supporters. Don't have much faith that they will come around unfortunately after this mess known as the Trump administration.
Utter leftist, lying nonsense!

I give you credit for even responding to that utter leftist! When they're that delusional and sanctimonious, I usually just skip right over. Can't reason with them.
