the paranoia is thick in here. For some reason the regulars here have been stuck in their progressive echo chamber so long they can't believe anyone would disagree with their viewpoints is real, therefore every new poster with a different view is assumed to be a "sock puppet", "paid operative" or "Russian bot".

Zed, has it ever occurred to you that some people (lots of them) simply see things differently than you do? geesh.

We will find out the motive soon enough. It may have been a right wing extremist, whacked out "Christian" or self loathing closeted gay man, or it may have been none of those things. Nightclub shootings are not a rare thing, probably a dozen every weekend across the country, but with fewer victims. They stem from petty disputes and acts of disrespect fueled by alcohol. This place has really bad reviews, apparently the staff trusted the patrons very poorly, so that is another possibility motive.

The Pulse shooting was a terrorist attack, not a hate crime. There were many rumors along the way, but ultimately it was determined that the choice of venue was random. The shooter didn't even know it was a gay club.

This shooter entered the club and immediately started shooting. At least two people went after the shooter and subdued the shooter, ending the carnage. They kept the shooter controlled until the police arrived. The police said that they owe those that acted to end this tragedy their deep thanks.

Two things.

One, it's not paranoia. There have been countless accounts made by previous posters who huffed out and continue to come back under new aliases. Considering they were here under their original name for years it's not hard to recognize them.

Second, the right has gone so far off into la la land their views sound and read like satire. It's not an unreasonable assumption to think they're not real given the absurdity of what is said these days.

Are trans rights human rights? It all depends on your viewpoint.

Should women be allowed to get abortion? Really comes down to your viewpoint.

The last Facebook post before the shooting at the LGBTQ+ club in Colorado Springs promoted an all-ages Drag Brunch for the next morning.

Drag Brunches have been the target of incessant threats and harassment from anti-LGBTQ groups and accounts over the last year.

The shooting at the Colorodo Springs LGBTQ+ club came on the same day as Trans Day of Remembrance, which GLAAD says "honors the memory of the transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence."

You have no idea how right you are. I watched Colorado Springs transition from this awesome little town into a hotbed of right-wing nuttery. Colorado Springs got this great to attract businesses that were wholesome and low polluting, so they went after "religious" industry. Trouble is a lot of those businesses (this is from memory back in the 90's) didn't pay taxes, got more power with elections, and managed to turn C Springs into a right-wing crazy. It made for great "rock throwing" by all the towns around C Springs, though.

I just heard (news) that the guys that stopped the shooter were able to get a pistol of his away from him and then they used it against him - by hitting him with it, putting him out of commission. Then they subdued him until the police arrived.

So, in this case that saying might be true. Good gay guys with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun - by beating the s**t out of him with his own gun!

Colorado LGBTQ club shooting: Suspect used legally purchased assault-style rifle

A 22-year-old has been charged with hate crimes for allegedly killing five people and injuring many others with a legally purchased assault-style rifle at an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado, according to officials briefed on the investigation.

Personally I think it's more tied to drug use messing with people's heads than anything else reducing one's inhibitions and creating crazy thinking.

Just what kind of drug use, BILLJOHNSON? And why are you being so vague? Are you actually a Drug Warrior? If so, you must have been the first in your state to vote for the Biden/Harris 2020 ticket.

Crazies are everywhere

I agree. Which makes it doubly important for Republicans to stop inciting violence: There are people out there willing to take them up on it.

Which side hates gays the most and does the most to demonize them and make them suffer?

Gay people aren't shooting up straight night clubs.

Black people aren't shooting up white grocery stores.

Latinos are not shooting up Walmarts.

Jewish people are not shooting up Christian churches.

The violence is coming from one demographic: Alt-right radicalized men.

Hershel Walker had this to say (bad grammer, and from the same dark corners of the Web BOAZ visits):

Here's what Walker told voters yesterday, according to audio obtained by Jezebel:

"Do y'all know what the definition of an enemy is? A enemy is somebody that don't like you. But they been telling you they don't know the definition of a woman either. So think about that either. They don't know the definition of a woman. But I'm going to tell you the definition of a woman. Because it written in my great book. It said a man and a woman.' And there's a difference between the two of them. So that's the reason men shouldn't be in women's sport"here's a difference.

But then, yet, they trying to tell you a man could get pregnant. Get that out of your head. No, he can't. No, he can't. All they're trying to do is take you down in that elevator, take you down in that elevator and lie to you. But I'm going to tell you right now, I'm not going to lie to you. I'm going to tell you, we're in a mess. We're in a mess because we put weak leaders in Washington. Weak leaders in Washington that not representing us."

On this site? It depends on their political ideology, obviously.

If a gay dares not lean left, see how they are treated.

See Bill Johnson.

Same with African Americans

See Boaz

"If a gay dares not lean left, see how they are treated."

But not because he's gay.
He's being judged by the content of his character. And the "different opinions" he has.
Opinions like he's opposed to gay marriage because he thinks it will lead to churches being forced to marry gay couples at gunpoint.

There's certainly the ability to play up the betrayal angle, as is more commonly thrown at black Republicans. Appeal to Hypocrisy is a perennial crowd pleaser and just about everybody is guilty at one time or another.

But again, it's the policies they support which earns them scorn. The hypocrisy of the perceived racial betrayal is the cherry on top.

Unlike BOAZ, who spent his "combat" time behind a computer screen, this retired Major is an accepting and humble human being:

"He saved a lot of lives," Mayor John Suthers said of Mr. Fierro. The mayor said he had spoken to Mr. Fierro and was struck by his humility. "I have never encountered a person who engaged in such heroic actions and was so humble about it."

It was supposed to be a chill family night out " the combat veteran and his wife, Jess, joined their daughter, Kassandra, her longtime boyfriend Raymond Green Vance, and two family friends to watch one of his daughter's friends perform a drag act.

It was Mr. Fierro's first time at a drag show, and he was digging it. He had spent 15 years in the Army, and now relished his role as a civilian and a father, watching one of his daughter's old high-school friends perform.

"These kids want to live that way, want to have a good time, have at it," he said as he described the night. "I'm happy about it because that is what I fought for, so they can do whatever they hell they want."

Mr. Fierro was trying to get better at going out. In Iraq and Afghanistan he'd been shot at, seen roadside bombs shred trucks in his platoon, and lost friends. He was twice awarded the Bronze Star.

Snoofy,

At least I know one person gets it.

By gunpoint might be a bit melodramatic but I see you understand my concern.

You may not agree with me but at least you comprehend what I've been saying.

I think most of the blind hard headed clunks on this site seem incapable of understanding my positions on things much less disagreeing with me.

No, YAV, you're just too stupid to understand Bill's deeply held religious beliefs. If you could understand you'd already be a member of his congregation.

Do you think you'll be able to come to terms with that realization? Especially this close to Christmas?

Fortunately it was a short tour. I came to my senses.
