Talia Lavin: The right-wing extremists who control the modern GOP are all gripped by a racist delusion. The shooter is just the latest to act on it.

Well, duh.

Non-racist Republicans exist. But they're not the mainstream of the party any more, and haven't been for a long time.

The shooter is a product of all the garbage violent rhetoric that the GQP and Trump have spewed these last few years.

It's almost like they knew this would happen... and if they didn't, they should have.

Cancel culture!

The shooter's manifesto sounds like a Republican rally or an evening on Fox News.

There is no 2A right to be a mass shooter, and you're fully aware of that.

And the whole "If we only had gun control the mass shootings would stop" is ridiculous. This country has more guns than people. Unless you want house to house gun confiscation warrantless searches of every home in the country, there is NO gun control that will stop them. And even if we went that far, and even if that didn't turn into a bloodbath trying (and it probably would) then the mentally ill people who go to a public place and start shooting will just turn to explosives, and we'll have mass bombings instead of mass shootings.

We'll never stop mass murders completely. But if we want to reduce them, we MUST have better and free healthcare. Mass murders are ultimately a mental health issue. Blaming guns for mass murders is ultimately going to be counterproductive.

That Fox News still ptovides Tucker Carson a platform to spew his racist screed and that RTepublicans still watch Fox News proves the headline is true.

Can someone, anyone, please explain this "Replacement" theory. Is the government going to come to my job at the Super Saver, kidnap me, and force me to be a migrant farm worker?
And what is my replacement like? Is he good looking?

Yet no mention at all about the molotov bombs at the pro-life place in Oregon. I'm so shocked that partisan people are ignoring one side of violence while crying like babies about another. Or, maybe Liberal logic is worse than I thought and they can't find a way to contextualize who would ever throw molotov cocktails at a pro-life office...hmmmmmmmmm, must have been those pesky right wingers too, amirite?

And don't take this one instance as if it is a one-off situation. Both sides do this. But since this is a Liberal leaning, or should I say so leaning it has fallen to the ground, rarely does any violence or hatred ever get posted on this site that is caused by the Left. In fact, CNN has made an entire business based around that so I'm not surprised it's here either. It's kind of indicative of the type of news that Liberal media posts. Ignore everything bad if it matches Liberal narratives but make sure to call out that the sky is falling when the Cons do it.

Such an old, tired strategy. I'm glad it's finally not working for Liberals and the masses have caught on.

"But they write this stuff for low information readers like Doc and JPW who will believe anything."

We are the only ATO nation witg the mass shooyer problem, all have mentally ill people and white suptrmacists. Only significant differencw between U.S. and the oyher NAYO menbers is access to guns. Jh3 White Supremacist that murdered those oeople in Biffalo had talked about shooting up a school a year ago so how did he still have legal access to guns?

Yeah, it isn't at all the full blown fascist nature of the GOP, even down to blaming libruls for a white supremacist shooting upon a grocery store.

Ah the old "BOTH SIDES DO IT" game. Always spouted by the side that is way worse on everything that both sides supposedly do.

After one side literally lied its supporters into trying to overthrow democracy and replace it with fascism, anyone who says BOTH SIDES looks like an utter moron.

WTF is a "Green Nationalist"? I'm still reading his thing (I got to an un-censored copy). He calls himself a "left-wing authoritarian". But page 1 of the pdf is a Black Sun Nazi logo.

He sympathizes with communism.

#17 | Posted by HeliumRat at 2022-05-16 06:19 PM | Reply

Actually that is all a bunch of words meaning nothing
It really is quite simple
He killed black people because he believed in the great replacement theory which is advocated by mainstream republicans

It is that simple

Everything else just smells of a lost soul looking for meaning -communist fascist socialist
He was a troubled lost child that was radicalized by the right wing hate machine

Congrats you built that

It really is that simple

You're right. Sometimes the two sides handle things very differently. Here is a prime example of that:

That's actually not a mainstream view held by Republicans. Most of his self descriptions are far more left than right. Further, none of that should even matter. Look at Hodgkinson, his motivations and rationales were almost perfectly aligned with Democrats and pundits like Maddow. Yet almost nobody tried to blame them for his actions because that is what a disgusting cretin does.

He killed ten blacks because of Great Replacement Theory.
And you're saying the reason shouldn't matter.

You are saying that we should pay no attention to the man preaching Great Replacement Theory behind the Fox News curtain.

Yeah kind of like ONEIRONOT who SAYS he's an "open borders liberal" but is actually a trump fascist cult member trying to make liberals look bad.

Which side is always crying about liberals trying to take power from white people?

But mainstream republicans do tout the great replacement theory, which the Buffalo shooter believed was such a problem that he killed people over it.

"The shooter died after engaging the police in a shootout. He was James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old hard-core Democrat who " less than six months into the Trump presidency " had sought to kill GOP lawmakers based on his belief that Republicans were corrupt traitors, fascists, and Kremlin agents."

From Ballwasher's link in 21

Welllllllllllllllllll, Republicans were corrupt traitors, fascists, and Kremlin agents...

I can't speak to the specific people targeted, but it seems to me you couldn't swing a dead cat at the republican convention without hitting more than a few traitors, fascists, and Kremlin agents.

Not justifying Hodgkinson's actions, btw, just pointing out a fact.

I've also heard repeatedly, from Republicans and other types of Conservatives, that the reason for the Second Amendment is so that We The People can defend ourselves against corrupt traitors, fascists, and Kremlin agents.

Don't think replace, think new lifestyle opportunity. Don't think kidnap, think free travel. Don't think migrant farm worker, think fresh air and exercise in the great outdoors. I think he's good looking, but my taste has been questionable in the past.

As ridiculous as I'm trying to be, it probably makes more sense than what Carlson, Stefanik, et al. are spouting.

Come the 2024 Presidential election, one that promises to be the ugliest in American history, I can only hope that the Democrats hire tons of security and refuse to let candidates walk "among the people" since a few of those people are being energized by hate media, just like in Rwanda. These are scary times indeed.
