Looks like he was upset that Trump wasn't anti-semitic enough.

All of this is info from "some guy" online so it could be all wrong. Did find one Spanish language news site that posted the same name and age, however.
I was unfamiliar with Gab so I looked it up, and now Iím sorry I did.

If you listen closely you can hear the NRA collectively jizzing in their pants.

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

My mom works at one of the most prominent Jewish centers in Los Angeles. It is guarded by Israeli soldiers. It's a shame they need to resort to that but I can tell you there's no way something like this could happen there. Proper training and proper protection goes a long way.

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

So, just arm every place, everywhere with soldiers. A military state in every building in America is a much better option than gun control.

Also, it took LESS THAN A MINUTE for law enforcement to arrive at the synagogue. Even if they had an armed guard he would have to have been standing at the exact right place to prevent any less damage than was done. So... I guess, multiple armed soldiers in every building in America, you know, to cover every entrance at all times.

Less than a week after Trump proclaimed himself a "Nationalist" (aka White Nationalist). Looks like a lot of #MAGAShooting #MAGABombing going on this week.

It might be simpler if every citizen were simply required to be armed.

I do think the rabbis should be armed with Uzis rather rather than izmels. With a bit of practice they could surely shoot the foreskin off, as well as take out a marauding anti-Semite. Kill two birds...

This good guy with a gun argument is bullshit. People forget there was an armed officer at Stoneman Douglas... and he RAN AWAY from the gunfire.

It's almost as if words mean things and what he says, intentional or not, influences the worst of humanity to take actions to hurt or kill other people they don't like. Hmm.

Speaking of which, how does the President of the United States stand on a national stage and say this and itís barely even a blip on the news. Virtually no one is talking about this.

The 24/7 news cycle is overloaded. Who knew it could happen. When stations like CNN first came online, they struggled to fill time. Now there's so much bullshit coming out of Trump on a daily basis, they can't keep up. Besides, if it bleeds it leads. The shootings and bombings take the lead, and analysis of Trump's rhetoric just don't get covered. There isn't enough time for hard analysis and the 24/7 news stations are generally lazy.

Yeah, I just find it crazy that the President can essentially state he’s a white Nationallist and no one says anything about it.

I just hope the Democrats are already cutting a campaign ad for the next presidential election that intercuts footage of white supremacists and Trump using the same terminology. White power rally screaming about white nationalists then Trump on stage saying “I’m a Nationalist, not supposed to say it but I am...”

And two full weeks of every prominent figure in the GOP floating conspiracy theories involving George Soros/"Globalists" and the caravan. Sadly, this was inevitable with the hate they've been spewing.

Iím starting to understand the frustration with the media. Iíve seen video of Trump walking up the stairs of Air Force One with toilet paper in his shoe at least twice as much as Iíve seen anyone talking about Trump declaring himself a (White) Nationalist.

Pick your battles better, media. For fuckís sake!

I'm surprised trump, the master of conspiracy theories himself, (or even conservative media) hasn't tried to link this shooting to another liberal plot for the midterms

The good guy with a gun won't have the gun on him in places that do not allow guns.

The good guy obeys the rules. The good guy obeys the laws.
