The Dayton shooter, on the other hand, appears to be from the opposite side of the political spectrum.

The shooting occurred early Sunday morning outside a nightclub in downtown Dayton. The alleged shooter, Connor Betts, 24, injured 27 people and killed nine, including his sister, before being shot and killed by police.

In a Sunday afternoon post, Heavy.com claims to have found the shooter's social media posts.

According to Heavy's finding, Betts appears to have been a liberal. He wrote approvingly of socialism, Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts, and liberal Democrat House members Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley.


Is Fox News repeating this yet?

"Update: The young white male with clear intent to conduct an armed assault on a local migrant solidarity community center has been released by El Paso PD.

What was that large bag of white powder you pulled off of him? Should we be concerned about explosives? Did he have a concealed weapons permit? Police stated that the gunman has rights, that they cannot search his truck, and that they have no cause to arrest him. An eyewitness saw him brandishing a gun and attempting to enter our building, women were fleeing down the street, warning neighbors as they ran away. We watched officers removing clips of ammo from his person. One officer acknowledged that if they had not arrived when they did, Thomas was likely to have committed acts which would be “a different situation”. They released him shortly after, on our block. The number one demographic of mass shooters are young white males.

This, at the same time as a brown single mother, who stood in the lobby of a museum open to the public during a protest, was criminalized to the point of being put on El Paso’s most wanted list for two weeks in a row, and subsequently arrested for the civil disobedience and public resistance to the continued genocide of indigenous people held by ICE in concentration camps. Despite the fact that a white supremacist committed a terrorist act in El Paso only 4 days ago, Thomas Bartram, who was apprehended outside Casa Carmelita brandishing a loaded gun, has been set free in the streets of El Paso with no charge. Stay trucha, Chuco."


Dude straight up purposely retraumatized an already traumatized community. I hope people beat the shit out of him regularly.

the text is from the migrant resource center itself, a fb post as they were the ones directly threatened and who called police.

i think often on sissy spacerock's post(s) about the lack/decline of clubs and groups and hobbyist organizations in this country
that line of thinking has been (and probably will continue to be) hijacked by the sasse/hawley ghouls but there's a legitimate problem of atomization in our age and the reactionary racial hierarchy right is well poised to exploit it

I wouldn't worry about it, keep doing it.

I used to worry about that too but it's stupid, no one will accuse you of it and if they do it's a fine excuse to say "no, fuck those people" and make it clear how you feel about them.
