Buffalo Shooting


Well-Known Member
Terrible news. Easy to go paranoid in this world.

At least nine people have been killed in a shooting at a supermarket in New York state, US media report.
Police are at the scene in the city of Buffalo and say a suspect has been taken into custody.
Officers believe the gunman entered the supermarket on Saturday afternoon before opening fire with a high-powered rifle, the Associated Press reports.
Multiple people were shot in the incident, police said, without giving further details.
But unnamed law enforcement officials told several media outlets, including the BBC's US partner CBS News, that at least nine people had been killed.
Police are expected to give an update in a news conference later on Saturday.

Speaking to CBS, a police source said the detained suspect was a white male who allegedly shouted racial slurs during the attack.
The Buffalo News, meanwhile, reported that the suspect wore a camera and body armour as well as a "military grade helmet".
It said police were investigating whether the suspect livestreamed the attack.
New York Governor Kathy Hochul said she was monitoring the situation and urged residents to avoid the area.

His manifesto is indistinguishable from the monologue of Tucker Carlson’s show. It’s similar to what most Republican candidates running for public office are spouting off. Hate speech and racism have consequences. For some? That means millions of dollars or public office. For others? That means becoming a shooter. And for the rest of us? We’re being held hostage by an extremist and authoritarian political movement that controls our media, courts, and most state governments.

Here’s the shooter citing great replacement theory in his manifesto.

And here’s Tucker Carlson citing great replacement theory on his tv show:

And here’s JD Vance, the Republican nominee for senator in Ohio. Since Ohio is a very red state so he’s most likely going to be elected to be one of 100 leaders from this country. And here he is, promoting the same racist “white replacement theory” garbage that human gas bags like Tucker and this shooter espouse. He’s subtle, but do you notice how he talks about immigrants bringing death in the form of drugs AND replacing the (white) electorate? Check it out:

So just like the South Carolina church and El Paso Walmart a few years ago, another nut who consumes too much Fox News has become radicalized and decided to kill fellow Americans. Thank a Republican for this! Donate to the NRA so they can continue to flood our communities with military grade weapons. They’re contributing to these idiotic gun laws, the nonstop division and hate, and for fanning the flames of racism and white replacement.

At least there was a good guy with a gun in there to stop the shooter. Oh wait, the good guy with a gun shot the shooter but the shooter was wearing a bulletproof vest and shot and killed the good guy with a gun and then proceeded to shoot and kill more people.
On your mark, get set, thoughts and prayers!

Let me guess, a ‘lone wolf’ is how he will be portrayed by some douchebags.
Don’t worry, I’ve been assured that right wing domestic terrorism doesn’t exist.

Compare this segment with the manifesto. He literally quotes Tucker throughout, even to the details of saying “all the liberal gatekeepers on Twitter.” Like the entire first minute of Tucker’s speech here reads almost word for word with the manifesto.

But again, I’ve been told that this rhetoric doesn’t have consequences. Other than keeping a large segment of our population angry and glued to Fox News and keeping Tucker on tv. No one would ever take what he has to say seriously… right???

106-page online manifesto, believed to have been uploaded by the shooter, explained that he was motivated by a conspiracy theory that white people are being replaced by other races. In the document, he says he is 18 years old and a self-described white supremacist and anti-semite.

“If there’s one thing I want you to get from these writings, it’s that White birth rates must change. Everyday the White population becomes fewer in number,” the document says. “To maintain a population the people must achieve a birth rate that reaches replacement fertility levels, in the western world that is about 2.06 births per woman.”

Always go for the head. Thanos taught us that.
Unfortunately, the livestream of this can be found online. It’s not gory, but it’s absolutely graphic and will be a central focus on his trial.

I don’t believe NY has the death penalty so he’ll be locked up for life. I’m frankly surprised he didn’t pull the trigger on himself.

Sounds like a fed hate crime, punishable by death
So many Republicans endorse white replacement theory. Why?
This is reporting on an opinion piece written in another media outlet intended for an audience of idiots. The lead-off should read “opinion writer said….”. The undeniable fact is the most racist people in America are on the political left. The opinion writer whose work is being reported on is on the political left. If someone initiates a point in which race is specifically cited, you can all but guarantee that person is on the political left.

The single most prominent white nationalist leader is Richard Spencer, and he endorsed Joe Biden after Bernie dropped out. There is video of Spencer giving speeches in which audience members are literally doing the Nazi Roman salute with their arms.

Richard Spencer isn’t an outlier. The organizer of the Charlottesville rally where morons carried tiki torches while chanting “Jews will not replace us’ was Jason Kessler, a long time and very active democrat. Per the left-leaning Washington Post:
A decade ago, [Jason Kessler] worked the phones at night for Secrest Strategic Services, the now-defunct Democratic polling outfit. He voted for Barack Obama in 2008. He spent time at the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Charlottesville in 2011, until he was kicked out for trying to register homeless people

In this post, The Thriller seems to be following the dictates attributed to Joseph Goebbels; “Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty”.
I don't think we're significantly less ****ed up here but at least these arseholes can't get guns.
I think our lax gun laws and sick gun culture definitely contributes to the situation we have. But the main catalyst is right wing extremism exploiting racial animosity and fear.

* You can’t have a president who calls Mexicans rapists and murderers without consequence.

* You can’t call Central American and African countries, “******** countries” without consequence.

* Your entire 2018 midterm strategy can’t be about scaring the country over a caravan of immigrants/asylum seekers without consequence. (Notice, Fox News hosts and viewers couldn’t let the racism go. To them it wasn’t just a midterm strategy)

* You can’t purposely separate migrant children from their parents, purposely creating a nightmare situation at the border, to act as a deterrent against immigration, without consequence.

* You can’t have the mentality to treat fellow human beings like this and build an alligator moat without consequence:

* You cannot claim that the 2020 presidential election was stolen by POC without consequence.

* You cannot accuse President Biden of hoarding baby formula insinuating that immigrant children and future Democratic voters survive while white children, future Republican voters, die, without consequence.

* You cannot endorse white replacement theory to millions of Americans without taking into account that you’re radicalizing some Americans to take matters into their own hands.

We all ignore right wing Republican hate speech and radicalization at our own peril.
For republicans, this is just another page in the story against their political enemies and the “impure” and “non-American” people trying to take over the country.

Whether we’re talking about “the caravan invasion”, “The Big Lie”, or “Biden hoarding baby formula for immigrants.”

The narrative is clear, white conservative evangelical Americans are under siege against doctors, public school teachers, the LGBT community, liberals, and POC and immigrants. It’s why just a few weeks ago we were seeing men trying their private parts on Tucker’s show; it’s all part of the narrative that America is losing something and we must “take it back.” In that case, manhood and manliness, back. It’s what gives life to the “White Replacement Theory” so popular among Republicans today.

This is an important thread:

And it’s important to know where millions of your fellow Americans are learning about white replacement theory from:

He’s not the only one. Read this, is it any wonder why we have mass shootings like the church in South Carolina, synagogue in Pittsburg, dance club in Orlando, El Paso Walmart, Kyle Rittenhouse, now Buffalo?

most people living in the United States today—certainly more than half—are not Americans in any meaningful sense of the term.

I don’t just mean the millions of illegal immigrants. Obviously, those foreigners who have bypassed the regular process for entering our country, and probably will never assimilate to our language and culture, are—politically as well as legally—aliens. I’m really referring to the many native-born people—some of whose families have been here since the Mayflower—who may technically be citizens of the United States but are no longer
This is fascism folks. And it’s our #1 threat to our democracy. Until we address the ugly hatred and bigotry being spouted everyday by Republicans and their propagandists, we’ll continue to see more senseless attacks on our government and on our communities.
The undeniable fact is the most racist people in America are on the political left.
How do you measure "most racist"? Because almost all of the people who discuss racist tropes are on the right.

The single ... Richard Spencer,

Richard Spencer isn’t an outlier. ... Jason Kessler
List two people, out of thousands, is virtually a defining example of "outlier".

For every person of almost no political power you list, we can point to three Congressional Republicans promoting naked racist ideologies like the "great replacement". Further, I think you already know this. I wonder how you can live with yourself while being so nakedly hypocritical and two-faced.
List two people, out of thousands, is virtually a defining example of "outlier".
TBH, I’m glad you don’t know this.

Richard Spencer and Jason Kessler aren’t outliers. The whole movement is socialist. The media does a good job of publishing images that omit pieces that give away the game. They’ll post images of some white loser parading around with a Confederate flag, holding up symbols most don’t know, or if there is a banner it is often in a shot in which the middle word is hard to make out. The text of the article or talking heads will tell everyone they are right-wingers. It is fake. Nearly always that confederate flag holder is a socialist and a Bernie Sander supporter.

Here is who they really are:

The NSM (National Socialist Movement) was the primary organization at Charlottesville. The racist shooter in Buffalo who is the subject of this thread, he called himself a socialist.

I know that not all people on the political left believe the way these guys do. I don't even think all Socialists are race obsessed, but there seems to be something about being race obsessed that seems to make socialism more appealing. Ibram X Kendi, who makes his entire living playing up issues of race, is socialist and on the political left. The BLM founders are socialist and on the political left. There is zero chance you could come up with 3 Republican congress members for every socialist race hustler I can point to because there are thousands of these socialist bigots.
So the deflection now is to call racist gun owning mass shooters leftists now?



IDGAF if the guy is a socialist or a republican, or a socialist Republican or anything else. None of this distracts from the fact that he almost used Tucker Carlson's words verbatim. That many (most) Trumpers support the exact ideas that he expressed in opposing "white replacement" and that this is where we're going if Trumpism continues.

I don't and have never really associated Trumpism with the Republican party other than that's the party that gave his ideology a home and now many establishment Republicans are fully in bed with the movement. Trumpism is NOT conservatism in my opinion. It is a form of white, fundamentalist (extremist) Christianity, that exists specifically as a reaction to women's rights, ethnic minority rights, LGBTQ+ rights. One of their main motivating factors is to reverse equality of non-Christian white people because they see loss of their unequal privilege as fundamentally unfair because they think this is "their" country and it is their natural place to gain the greatest advantages from what it has to offer and sharing is essentially a loss of their special rights.

So who ****ing cares if their collectivists or libertarians? They are my enemy regardless.
