Not cool in the least.





KDKA’s Meghan Schiller reports that a suspect, a white male, has surrendered. The SWAT team had been talking with the suspect, and he was crawling and injured.
Police sources tell KDKA’s Andy Sheehan the gunman walked into the building and yelled, “All Jews Must die.” Sheehan confirmed that eight people were confirmed dead. Others had been shot but the extent of their injuries in unknown at this time.

Clearly a leftist false flag. The far right wing would never just try to exterminate Jews for being enemies of the state.

And **** Trump very much for saying that the Synagogue needs a fucking armed guard. Is that his idea of making America great? An armed guard in every church and a pistol on the hip of every school teacher? The man is a fucking moron.

A lot of synagogues already have armed guards.

I get it but saying something so tone deaf is ridiculous. They just suffered a domestic terrorist act, now is not the time to imply it wouldn't have happened if only they had an armed guard.

Imagine saying something like that to someone who just lost their family. It's obscene.

"Alleged Synagogue Shooter Robert Bowers Endorsed GOP Talking Point That Jewish Groups Funded Migrant Caravan"
https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/alleged-synagogue-shooter-robert-bowers-endorsed-gop-talking-point-that-jewish-groups-funded-migrant-caravan



Tree of Life Synagogue shooting suspect Robert Bowers recently endorsed the conservative talking point that Jewish organizations and/or Jewish individuals have been funding the so-called “migrant caravan” of asylum seekers from Honduras. This conspiracy theory was also recently floated by two prominent Republican congressman and President Donald Trump.

Social media posts attributed to Bowers single out HIAS, a Jewish refugee agency founded as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society in 1881. The organization formed as a response to a series of anti-Semitic pogroms in the pre-Soviet Russian Empire. HIAS has recently directed its resources to aid refugees and immigrants of all backgrounds–without regard for religion or nationality–and calls on its members to “repair the world.”

Bowers was reportedly an active user on the social networking site Gab–a self-styled “free speech” website which has effectively become a right-wing alternative to Twitter. Gab is a well-known online hangout for the alt-right, neo-Nazis, white nationalists and various other reactionary tendencies.

Yeah, this started after a number of Synagogue shootings about a decade ago.

If I remember right, armed guards and code locked doors was a recommendation of the DOJ under the Obama administration.

So's you know, the by far vast majority of us so called "right wingers" don't claim this cowardly sack. The partisan bullshit needs to be dialed down.

Thoughts and prayers don't get it.

Suddenly, it all makes sense. Joe, you and the shooter share 1/2048th of your political DNA; that makes him a bona fide Conservative, or you a bona fide crazy mass murderer. Take your pick.

There are levels of right wing. Stalin was left wing. Hitler was right wing. Both were bastards of the highest order.

Not really. I mean I agree they both were bastards, but I don't think Right Wing and Left Wing really apply with non-Democratic political extremes.

One of the key tenants of original Communism/Socialism(I mean if read guys like Marx, Engels ect) was the euthanizing of non-productive members of society. So handicapped, mentally ill, mentally handicapped, pensioners and the chronically ill. As well, in the early stages, those whose education was not considered useful and for whom re-education would not be profitable for the state.

Hitler was unique in that he also applied this to Jews and certain other minority groups.

Stalin and Mao just took it as is and commenced the killing.

They both were only variants on a theme. Today you have hate groups who claim the word "Nazi" but they have no actual socialist ideals. Instead they cling to the extreme right wing Libertarian Capitalist fringe. Likewise while you may have some left wing folk, claim varying levels of socialist or communist feelings, none of them really want actual communism. Funny that most of them are artists who would be the first to be euthanized for being useless to society. They are either well meaning folks who want a better social contract believing it will lead to better social stability or just losers who want others to pay their bills.

The Nazis had no real socialist ideals either. Hitler endorsed "socialism" because the concept was popular at the time, but he wasn't actually a socialist, and the real socialist members of the party were purged during the Night of Long Knives.
