In the span of 12 hours, two mass shootings rocked the nation. In El Paso, Texas, 29 were killed with another two dozen injured at a Walmart. Just hours later gunfire erupted in Ohio, where at least nine were killed and another 27 injured outside a popular neighborhood of bars and restaurants.
Just last week, another mass shooting captivated the nation when a maniac gunned down dozens of people at the Gilroy Garlic Festival.
Liberal Media and Politicians Blaming Trump, White Nationalists, and gun owners!
As expected, the usual set of dipshits in the media and congress immediately started attacking this country’s law-abiding gun owners, claiming they are the problem. We knew this was coming, but this time, something seems different. On top of the usual hysterics, there seems to be a coordinated effort to push a narrative that these attacks are a new form of domestic terrorism by white nationalists, linking them to the MAGA/Trump movement.
On Sunday’s NBC Meet the Press,” while interviewing White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney anchor Chuck Todd accused President Donald Trump of spending the last month on twitter stoking racial resentment.”
Democrat presidential candidate Julian Castro “pointed to a ‘toxic brew’ of white nationalism and said Trump needs to do more to “unite Americans instead of fanning the flames of bigotry.”
Todd said, “The president has spent the last month on twitter stoking racial resentment in different ways. You can try to rationalize he was speaking about specific incidents but taken together these sick people; they hear what they want to hear. Does the president not have a responsibility to higher moral rhetoric when it comes to violence and refugees.”
On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” South Bend, IN Mayor and 2020 democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg declared this is “white nationalist terrorism.”
Buttigieg said, “This is terrorism, and we have to name it as such. It is very clear that the loss of American life in Charleston, in San Diego, in Pittsburgh by all appearances now in El Paso too is symptomatic of the effects of white nationalist terrorism. ”
Sunday on MSNBC, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) said a manifesto railing against immigrants posted online moments before the mass shooting in El Paso, had the quote “that could have come out of a Donald Trump rally.”
Ryan said, “The culture right now is the problem. I mean, when you read that manifesto, there were quotes in there that could have come out of a Donald Trump rally, and when you have the president talk about send them back, and people are chanting send them back, and this jackass drives ten hours to go shoot Mexicans, that’s a cultural problem the president is throwing jet fuel on making matters worse. You need laws, but presidents are the cultural leaders of the country, whether you like it or not. They can inspire us to reach for the stars or create an atmosphere of get out of here and go back to where you came from.”
CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday asked O’Rourke, a former El Paso congressman: “Do you think President Trump is a white nationalist?” “Yes. I do,” O’Rourke said on CNN’s State of the Union. The Democrat also referenced Trump’s record of insulting Mexicans as “rapists” and describing asylum-seeking migrants as an infestation. “The things that he has said both as a candidate and then as the President of the United States, this cannot be open for debate,” he said.
Law enforcement officials claim, then refuted, then claimed again the four-page manifesto posted to the online message board 8chan was written by the suspected shooter.
BREAKING: It’s now being reported that the alleged manifesto of the El Paso gunman, claiming he agreed with Christchurch mosque shooter, was a hoax https://t.co/Mdlis5s4dB— BNL NEWS (@BreakingNLive) August 3, 2019
And then minutes later…
BREAKING: Police do now believe that El Paso shooting may have been an act of right wing domestic terrorism, manifesto probably not a hoax as previously stated— BNL NEWS (@BreakingNLive) August 3, 2019
And then a reporter form the Washington Post…
It’s looking like the “manifesto” is an 8Chan hoax. Will confirm if it is or isn’t later.— Jake Hanrahan (@Jake_Hanrahan) August 3, 2019
The number of people killed in the El Paso shooting is now said to be up to 20, including four children. Horrific. https://t.co/2DFKGXHne8
So is the Manifesto real? Or are these horrific acts being used to go after political opponents?
Oddly, just last week the FBI put out a warning claiming conspiracy theorists were potential domestic terrorists.
An FBI document, first reported by Yahoo News, identifies conspiracy theories as potential domestic terrorism threats, specifically identifying QAnon, a group that believes there is a “deep state” working against President Trump, in the memo.
The FBI pointed to QAnon and Pizzagate, as examples of groups whose messages could lead to “violent acts.”
The FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureau’s Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019, describes “conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists,” as a growing threat, and notes that it is the first such report to do so.
“The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts,” the document, dated May 30, reads.
It also goes on to say the FBI believes conspiracy theory-driven extremists are likely to increase during the 2020 presidential election cycle.
The coming crackdown
Let’s face it, the internet is a shell of what it was even a few short years ago.
Sites like this struggle to stay alive, as the silicon valley assjacks have all but killed free expression on social media. But these latest shootings are being used to further kill the internet and free speech as democrat lawmakers, and now a bunch of gutless republicans, take to the airwaves claiming we need to start shutting down independent websites.
Remember the so-called conservative (who helped found the never-trump movement) that was used to push Michael Savage off the airwaves? Well he has a new mission, connect the shootings to Whites and Trump.
#WhiteSupremacistTerrorism is terrorism and should be treated as such. It is an evil scourge that must be rooted out and destroyed.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) August 4, 2019
A few were quick to point out the hypocrisy of his tweet…
@ChickenLittle5 @CALA_1111 @BlissTabitha @realDonaldTrump @MaryMister8 Shut up Ben! Can’t believe you fall for this sh*t! All the mass murderers are #Demokkkrats including the latest in El Paso, and by the way do these mass murderers look white to you?
