It's bizarre that things like this happen all the time in a first-world country. For me, now, I will classify the countries in: Communists, third world, first world and... the United States.

...To-day's SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE was mostly occupied on its front page by mass shooting stories! 8O Under a top line, " Mass Shootings " there was a reprint of the NY Time's So Paso story, with a smaller reprint of the picture, taken from the El Paso paper, of surviving Hispanic-looking Wal-Mart employees consoling each other - and below that was a longer, locally written. feature story about how local Gilroy waz coping with the aftermath day's later.
It went to press to early for the Dayton deluge I guess :wink: !

Conflicting reports. Twitter screen shots show Ohio gunman as an Elizabeth Warren supporter and a proponent of socialism who was anti-Trump and praised antifa.

Ohio gunman described himself as pro-Satan 'leftist' who supported Elizabeth Warren
Quote:
The Ohio gunman described himself on social media as a pro-Satan “leftist” who wanted Joe Biden’s generation to die off, hated President Trump and law enforcement, and hoped to vote for Sen. Elizabeth Warren for president.

“I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding,” he wrote in one tweet, according to Heavy.com.

The breaking-news outlet said it had found Betts‘ Twitter page (handle @iamthespookster) and verified that the account belonged to the gunman “through multiple verification factors, including a matching tattoo on both a page selfie and prominent news outlets’ pictures of Connor Betts; several family linkages to the page; similar photos, including of him and the family dog, on the page and family members’ verified accounts; and references to college and growing up in Ohio and Dayton.”

The Twitter account painted a picture of a left-wing anarchist and discontent, very far from the anti-immigration manifesto posted by Saturday’s El Paso gunman.

“Vote blue for gods sake,” he wrote last Nov. 2. On the day of the senator’s death, Betts wrote “F—k John McCain.”

Though he had a fascination for guns, Betts also was a fan of gun control and blamed Republicans for school shootings.

This is America: Guns on every corner, guns in every house, no freedom but that to kill,” he wrote in December, and on the day of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting, he tweeted at Sen. Rob Portman: “hey rob. How much did they pay you to look the other way? 17 kids are dead. If not now, when?”

In reference to the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, he wrote “you can’t kill 50+ people and injure 600(!) In 10 minutes with cigarettes my dude.”

Politically, Betts was on the far left. His pinned Top Tweet was a retweet of someone else’s claim that “Millennials have a message for the Joe Biden generation: hurry up and die.”

When another Twitter user posted a picture of Ms. Warren and 2020 Democratic presidential rival Kamala Harris and asked “co-Presidents?” Betts poured scorn.

“Nahh, but only cuz Harris is a cop - Warren I’d happily vote for,” he replied.

When noting that alt-right demonstrators were marching in Charlottesville, a rally that later ended in the death of Heather Heyer, he exhorted his followers: “Kill every fascist.”

According to Heavy, Betts also shared posts about “concentration camps” at the border and wrote, “Cut the fences down. Slice ICE tires. Throw bolt cutters over the fences.”

His profile specified his preferred pronouns as “he/him.”

As of Sunday, Dayton police said they had no proof of Betts‘ motive.

Wow , the other shooter liked Socialism too.

It appears Warren is considered to be to the left of Bernie Sanders.

Looks more like a member of party D instead of party R, like party D hoped.

....or he could just be an individual operating on his own.

But in the end, which side has committed the most murders in recent times?

...When I first read about I t the El Paso shooter, I thought it might not have been posted about here yet and I thought I would - I thought I would borrow from this title that someone gave to a parody of the country song " Okie From Muskogee " - he called it "as*hole From El Paso ". I thought I'd use that as the title. Perhaps it was lucky that it had been put up already! (Apart from the El Paso actually not being from El Paso.)
Kiosk. if you like looking at physical paper newspaper front pages, is a place you could look at that San Francisco Chronicle front page.

Domestically; mainly lone individuals or sometimes a pair of individuals operating on their own.

Overseas; appearntly it is party D.

As white nationalists urge each other to take action on sites like 4Chan and 8Chan, and are in constant communication with one another, it's hardly the case where right wing shooters are ultimately alone.

I have studied most of the mass shooters and as far as I know none credited 4chan or 8chan or gave any indication they were tied in with those websites. According to forensic analysis they are for the most part classified as loners carrying a personal grudge. Do you have any forensic data supporting your claim?

The guy was into heavy metal and a satanist. In addition to a kill list he also had a rape list of girls he was planning to attack.

Dude was going out in a blaze of glory (death by cop). Given he was a satanist I suspect his posting that he liked Elizabeth Warren was probably designed to damage the democrat party before he had his brains blown out.

Frankly his profile indicates his only interest in socialism is because he is "anti-social"
