Quote:


Twitter/Facebook Connor Betts posted about Satan, politics, and guns on Twitter.

Connor Betts, the Dayton, Ohio mass shooter, was a self-described “leftist,” who wrote that he would happily vote for Democrat Elizabeth Warren, praised Satan, was upset about the 2016 presidential election results, and added, “I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding.”

Betts’ Twitter profile read, “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back.” One tweet on his page read, “Off to Midnight Mass. At least the songs are good. #athiestsonchristmas.” The page handle? I am the spookster. On one selfie, he included the hashtags, “#selfie4satan #HailSatan @SatanTweeting.” On the date of Republican Sen. John McCain’s death, he wrote, “F*ck John McCain.” He also liked tweets referencing the El Paso mass shooting in the hours before Dayton.

Twitter has now suspended the Twitter page, removing it. It was up for several hours after the mass shooting.

On Nov. 2, 2018, he wrote: “Vote blue for gods sake.”

?

“This is America: Guns on every corner, guns in every house, no freedom but that to kill,” he wrote in December 2018. And, “’Tis! The pistol is a Beretta 93R, called the REK7 in BO4. Do love me some guns!” He also wrote, “Hammer, brick, gun.” On Feb. 14, 2018, he tweeted this at Sen. Rob Portman: “@robportman hey rob. How much did they pay you to look the other way? 17 kids are dead. If not now, when?” That was the date of the mass shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida.

?

That’s all according to his Twitter page, which was reviewed by Heavy. The Twitter page gives the first public glimpse into the shooter’s politics, and what he wrote stands pretty much in polar opposite to accused El Paso shooter Patrick Crusius, whose own social media accounts indicated support for President Donald Trump and anti-immigrant measures, such as the border wall. You can read about Crusius’s pages here. (The Greene County Board of Elections lists Betts’ party as “Dem.”)

Based on the tweets he "liked," the Dayton shooter seemed to be following the coverage of the El Paso shooter closely.

— JJ MacNab (@jjmacnab) August 5, 2019

Authorities now say that Betts, 24, of Bellbrook, Ohio, donned body armor and a mask before shooting and killing 9 people outside a Dayton bar, including his own sister. At least 27 people were injured. Police say the motive is unclear. You can read tributes to the victims here.

Heavy confirmed the Twitter page through multiple verification factors, including a matching tattoo on both a page selfie and prominent news outlets’ pictures of Connor Betts; several family linkages to the page; similar photos, including of him and the family dog, on the page and family members’ verified accounts, including its name; and references to college and growing up in Ohio and Dayton.

Photo on the Twitter page (left) and on his mom’s Facebook page (right)

“#2016ElectionIn3Words This is bad,” he wrote on Nov. 8, 2016 (he did follow Trump’s page). “You can’t kill 50+ people and injure 600(!) In 10 minutes with cigarettes my dude,” he wrote in 2017. In response to a Buzzfeed story that read, “Virginia has declared a state of emergency in anticipation of the ‘Unite the Right’ rally anniversary in Charlottesville this weekend,” he wrote: “Kill every fascist.”

Wow, yeah, some people here sound kinda like that.

I think you all know I'm posting about Connor Betts, the Dayton OH mass murderer, because others have posted about him already. This post is just making a point, which I hope you got. (If you haven't, you're brain-dead). Later, I'm going to recap some of the discussions we had about genocide, war, civil war, and other forms of mass violence, back from the day when we used to have intelligent posters here and not just a bunch of partisan hacks with an over-abundance of "feelz".

She declares that the Socialists of the Democrat party are really, really not Socialists. Although the Democrat party Platform is most closely voted in compliance with by .... Socialist and Communists in Congress.

I noticed, which is why I'm dragging it back up.

But if you believe the NYPost, JUST LIKE the El Paso shooter - who has definite mental issues - this guy did as well. At least, that's the story in the news.
Quote:

Connor Betts, 24, was a serious and reserved kid who struggled with hallucinations, Lyndsi Doll, who dated Betts seven years ago, told the Washington Post Monday.

During their high school years, Betts had told Doll he’d long suffered from psychosis and feared developing schizophrenia.

“He would cry to me sometimes,” Doll recalled, “saying how he’s afraid of himself and afraid he was going to hurt someone one day. It’s haunting now.”

Personally, I wonder why someone who'd heard voices from an early age wasn't being treated, and didn't have a psychiatric history.

Perhaps we'll eventually find out.

Vladimir Putin's New Big Challenge: Taking Out the Trash

Locals want to stop the construction of a waste processing plant in wet peatland forest that they say feeds local rivers and hosts endangered species. But the demonstrators have faced crackdowns, with reports of police beating and arresting protesters and on one occasion dragging an elderly man away by the arm after allegedly breaking it.

Huge difference here.

The El Paso terrorist murdered all those people for political reasons, which he wrote in his manifesto.

The Dayton shooter doesn't appear to have had any political motivation for what he did. It's terrible, but it's not terrorism without a political or ideological motive. He killed his sister and as many others as he could before the cops got to him. People who knew him said he was disturbed and obsessed with violence and guns.

We do know that he followed the El Paso shooting on social media. It was perhaps a copycat shooting.

Dayton OH shooter, Conner Betts

Just excerpting his social media comments from a longer opinion piece

Quote:


While Betts, the Dayton shooter, didn’t leave behind a manifesto, his extensive social-media footprint provides clues as to what may have inspired him. Federal investigators announced Tuesday that they are looking into his exploration of violent ideologies.

Betts had long expressed support for antifa accounts, causes and individuals. That would be the loose network of militant leftist activists who physically attack anyone to the right of Mao in the name of “anti-fascism.” In particular, Betts promoted extreme hatred of American border enforcement.

“Kill every fascist,” 2018 on twitter,

“Nazis deserve death and nothing else,” he tweeted last October.

Betts frequently flung the label “Nazi” at those with whom he disagreed online.

Sounds like anyone we know???

Quote:

In ­response to an essay by Intercept writer Mehdi Hassan titled, “Yes, Let’s Defeat or Impeach Trump—but What If He Doesn’t Leave the White House?” the shooter wrote: “Arm, train, prepare.”

“I want socialism, and I’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round understanding.” June 2019

Last month, an antifa militant firebombed an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Tacoma, Wash. Police say Willem van Spronsen was killed after he aimed a rifle at them during the attack. His gun had apparently malfunctioned before he could fire. In his manifesto, he called for his “comrades” to take up arms in confronting the ascendant fascism of the state. In one of Betts’ tweets ­before he extinguished the lives of nine fellow Americans, he responded to a person asking if van Spronsen (antifa militant) had been a “villain or martyr?”

Betts flatly replied: “martyr.”



https://nypost.com/2019/08/06/dayton-shooter-may-be-antifas-first-mass
-killer
/

Quote:

The Twitter account painted a picture of a left-wing anarchist and discontent, very far from the anti-immigration manifesto posted by Saturday’s El Paso gunman.

“Vote blue for gods sake,” he wrote last Nov. 2. On the day of the senator’s death, Betts wrote “F—k John McCain.”

Though he had a fascination for guns, Betts also was a fan of gun control and blamed Republicans for school shootings.

“This is America: Guns on every corner, guns in every house, no freedom but that to kill,” he wrote in December, and on the day of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting, he tweeted at Sen. Rob Portman: “hey rob. How much did they pay you to look the other way? 17 kids are dead. If not now, when?”

In reference to the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, he wrote “you can’t kill 50+ people and injure 600(!) In 10 minutes with cigarettes my dude.”

Politically, Betts was on the far left. His pinned Top Tweet was a retweet of someone else’s claim that “Millennials have a message for the Joe Biden generation: hurry up and die.”

When another Twitter user posted a picture of Ms. Warren and 2020 Democratic presidential rival Kamala Harris and asked “co-Presidents?” Betts poured scorn.

“Nahh, but only cuz Harris is a cop - Warren I’d happily vote for,” he replied.

When noting that alt-right demonstrators were marching in Charlottesville, a rally that later ended in the death of Heather Heyer, he exhorted his followers: “Kill every fascist.”

According to Heavy, Betts also shared posts about “concentration camps” at the border and wrote, “Cut the fences down. Slice ICE tires. Throw bolt cutters over the fences.”

His profile specified his preferred pronouns as “he/him.”

As of Sunday, Dayton police said they had no proof of Betts‘ motive.

But the looming question is whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will agree — and whether it will happen before Trump changes his mind.

Mass shootings not caused by mental illness, experts

I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.


Leave it to THUGR to quote a "mentally ill are victims" study. While it may be true that the mentally ill are often victims, the group to look at isn't the mentally ill as a whole, but mass murderers.

Son of Sam? Heard voices.
Sandy Hook shooter? Some undiagnosable problem, had been evaluated by MANY psychological professionals.
Same thing with James Holmes, the Colorado theater shooter, who had seen three mental health professionals shortly before shooting.
Jared Loughner (Gabby Gifford's shooter) heard voices.

Quote:

In 2018 the Federal Bureau of Investigation released a report titled “A Study of the Pre-Attack Behavior of Active Shooters in the United States Between 2008 and 2013.” It reported that 40% of the shooters had received a psychiatric diagnosis, and 70% had “mental health stressors” or “mental health concerning behaviors” before the attack.

https://www.fbi.gov/file-repository/pre-attack-behaviors-of-active-sho
oters-in-us-2000-2013.pdf/view?mod=article_inline


40%! That's far and away a lot higher than the average population!

That's not to say that everyone who becomes a mass murderer is clinically mentally ill. Some people ... TWITCHY, REAVERBOT, SECONDRATE ... are what I call "ideologically possessed". They see the world and everyone in it as "my side" or "enemies".

I was going to get to that problem btw.

In one of the many intelligent discussions we used to have here, we were discussing the origins of mass violence - genocide (Rwanda was the specific topic, I think) but also cicil war, mass murder, war etc and we figured that the FIRST step towards mass violence is

dehumanization, followed by demonization.

So, what is "dehumanization"?

It's when you look at vast swaths of people as CATEGORIES ... Middle Easterners, "white men", black people, "fascists", etc. Demonization is when you respond to them as if they're all the same, tagging them with crimes and behaviors that exist mostly on your own head.

Blacks are lazy and victims of soft expectations.
White men are fascist incels.
Muslims are terror-loving jihadists.
Trump supporters are racist.
Liberals are big-gubmint libtards.

Instead of reacting to what ONE PERSON has done and handling it as a criminal matter , the ideologically-possessed person tags the entire "enemy of choice" category with the event. Look at WISHY, she wants to eradicate entire groups of people, she doesn't care if any of them has done anything wrong, she just wants to kill them. SECONDRATE hates the GOP with a passion, and suggests that a Trump assassination is a good middle ground. REAVERBOT has suggested that anyone that HE DEEMS is a "fascist" (and that could be anyone, given how loosely he thinks) deserves a thumping at the very least.

IMHO the only thing that justifies violence is self defense against actual violence. Not what you THINK "they" might do, but actual violence against yourself or others. Justice is not categorical, it is individual. Shootings etc are to be handled by the justice system, and not used as an excuse to get people all wound up and hating "them".

Hating "them" is sucker's game. It keeps us all divided and prevents us from improving our nation. The only way to deal with our problems is together, and the only way to do THAT is to have a national "brainstorming" session, where we first identify the problem and then figure out the solutions and priorities.

Coming together in a national conversation will take YEARS, but it's the only way forward, nothing else will move us thru this knot that we seem to be tied up in. Inevitably, people will disagree, but there will be points of agreement, we can move forward on those. It's like troubleshooting: you diagnose, try to fix, then assess the results and try again. All of this blamestorming and finger=pointing and name-calling is moving us backwrds, and it's moving us backwards fast.

The Joss Whedon script for Serenity, where Wash lives, is Serenity-190pages.pdf at www.mediafire.com/folder/1uwh75oa407q8/Firefly


Capote portrays Smith’s slow drift from troubled childhood to murder, in a manner that blurs the line between agency and circumstance. But the crime itself evokes anger and moral revulsion, and that’s because we assume that even once all the external influences that made Smith who he was are taken into account, he still could have walked away without committing senseless murder. He chose not to, and he is to blame for that choice.

Determinism looks like it pulls the rug out from under the presumption that Smith could have walked away. The worry is that if the physical laws are deterministic, they leave no room whatsoever for any contingency about what will happen once the initial conditions of the universe are set. Smith was a product of a history that could only unfold in one way, as a matter of physical law, from its early origins. The facts of the early universe left no room for him to do anything but make the choices that he made. It’s not that people’s choices don’t make a difference to what they do; it’s that their choices are themselves fixed by facts that were in place long before they was conceived. When the NRA says “Guns don’t kill people; people kill people”, they mean to be pointing to the person holding the gun as the real locus of control, and the one responsible for the damage caused by a bullet, because the gun has no choice about what to do. The worry raised by determinism is that the person – no less than the gun – is but one part of the landscape the causal chain passes through. Maybe people don’t kill people either. Maybe the initial conditions of the universe do (although this would probably be no more consolation to the families of those recently shot in Texas and Ohio than is the NRA slogan).

www.the-tls.co.uk/articles/public/free-will-problem/

Rather than have endless discussions of Democrats vs Republicans about Determinism vs Freewill, just remove the guns and make the discussions moot. When the final answer from philosophers and physicists is known about which is true, Determinism or Freewill, maybe then you can add back the semi-automatic rifles to see what happens.

Makes as much sense as taking forks away from children because some of them will poke at others with them.

Studio Cancels Release Of Elite-Liberals-Hunting-Trump-Supporters Movies

As we noted yesterday, it took several weekends of mass shootings for Universal Pictures to yank ads for (but not postpone, or cancel) an R-rated 'murder-porn' movie in which elite liberals hunt Trump supporters for sport.

"The same people who want you to give up the right to bear arms are the same people making movies about killing Trump supporters for sport," tweeted OANN Chief White House Correspondent Emerald Robinson.

"Did anyone see what our ratfucker-in-chief just did?" asks one character early in the screenplay for The Hunt - set to open Sept. 27.

"At least The Hunt's coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables," is the reply.


But, after furious backlash in the last few days, that has changed as The Hill reports that Universal Pictures says it is canceling the release of "The Hunt" following intense criticism on both sides of the aisle about the upcoming film.

"While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for 'The Hunt,' after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film," a Universal Pictures spokesperson told The Hill in a statement.

"We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film."

Satirical.
Yeah, right.
After all of this blather about "irresponsible rhetoric" and "words have consequences", and political correctness up the yin-yang about which pronoun to call someone otherwise they might be "triggered", no comment about this movie?

Quote:

This decision followed President Trump's outburst against "racist" Hollywood on Friday, blaming popular culture for pushing "dangerous" movies.

"The movie coming out is made in order... to inflame and cause chaos. They create their own violence, and then try to blame others," Trump tweeted Friday.

"They are the true Racists, and are very bad for our Country!"

Effing correct.

Quote:

As Daisy Luther noted, imagine if the shoe was on the other foot and “liberal snowflakes” were being hunted by a bunch of red-hat wearing rednecks. The media would go wild and reasonably so. But when conservatives are in the crosshairs? Crickets.

But Universal's decision to cancel release (for now), at least delays the inevitable surge in divisiveness and outrage that is coming as we head into an election cycle.



If you haven't noticed by now ... and if you haven't you're a brain-dead zombie ... the M$M is GOADING people into hating the "other side".

And anyone who buys into that ... and I mean Trump supporters as well as (neo)liberals ... is a dupe.

I have been asking this question for well over a year

What are our interests?

Not "women's, not "men's", not "POC" or "LGBTQ+" or "millenial's" or "baby boomer's" but OUR interests? What unites us rather than divides us? It's a question few have addressed.

You mentioned Switzerland. That country does nothing the way America does, including everything about gun commerce, ownership, licensing, background checks, mandatory military service. Everything in America is done the opposite of Switzerland.

"Switzerland has a stunningly high rate of gun ownership — here's why it doesn't have mass shootings"

"In Switzerland, gun ownership is high but mass shootings are low. Why?"
https://bigthink.com/politics-current-affairs/switzerland-high-gun-own
ership


Even the so-called "high gun ownership" in Switzerland is different than America with 1.2 million guns per million people versus Switzerland's 275,000 guns per million. America would have to destroy a million guns for every million Americans to get down to Switzerland's numbers.

America would have to do everything Switzerland does, if it is to reduce gun deaths. America will do nothing Switzerland does. Why nothing? Just one explanation: “There’s no way Republicans are voting for a background check bill unless Trump comes out in favor of it for more than a couple hours. I’ve been to this rodeo before.” - SEN. CHRISTOPHER MURPHY, D-CONN. on gun measures to expect after mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio

What prevents America from becoming the Switzerland of low gun violence is one particular political party pandering to its gun owners who vote.

Radical Feminist Raves: "We Need To Kill All Men"

Somebody must've not been paying attention in biology class.

A rant from feminist YouTube star named Jenny McDermott has gone viral on Twitter over the past few days. In it, McDermott tells her audience that, to create the ideal conditions for the survival of the human race, we must kill all men and male babies.

"We need to kill all men. I am sick of being a baby factory that produces more men who will in the future subjugate me. The solution to that is to kill any man that you see in the streets just any swinging dick. We want the species to go on but we only want it to go on with women in it."

Don't believe us? Here's the clip. And (at least as far as we can tell) it's not a deep fake.

This is the unhinged feminist youtuber Jenny McDermott. She says the only way to stop men from subjugating her - k!ll them all at birth. "We need to k!ll all men" she says ??

I say...please don't ??

Lol how can ANYONE like this be taken SERIOUSLY #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder pic.twitter.com/oIJ5cPL1j0
— Mel (@mel_faith1) August 9, 2019

If McDermott wants to live in a world with no men, she should try moving to this remote polish town of Miejsce Odrzanskie, where, by some fluke of fate, there hasn't been a man born in nearly a decade, according to the New York Times.



Yes, just what we need... more TWITCHY-types, just ready to eradicate entire groups of people that she doesn't like.

Some are talking about legislation to prevent crazy nutbags from buying or owning guns.
This will effectively eliminate any Libtard or Democrap from being gun owners. They are all crazy, delusional. Suffering TDS.

They don't want them anyways.

If this second civil war fantasy they keep yapping about ever happens, it's going to be the most one sided war in the history of man.
