    Just so you know, when Fox covered this story, they reported it once, then DISABLED their comments section. They NEVER do that. They haven't even had anyone on their shows to talk about it. NO right wing TVcliprs have been talking about it on their channels. Very telling!

    Did he shoot anyone? Fantasy and illusion. He has a few guns, alleged. What a joke. Looks like an eagle scout being prepared. If anything this is just a partisan preparing to resist muslim jewish occupation. He had a few enemies, probably negroid, at work that dont like a white man who turned informant. So he has a few guns messed around on the internet. That is not a crime.

      I agree... because of the Bernie's and the AOC's promoting hate, you get this. Let's all remember, there are NO White Supremacists that are Conservatives.. they're 100% Socialists. You make a good case NOT to vote for any of the 100 Socialists candidates on the Left.

    People in the comments are ridiculous. It doesn’t matter if he’s a Trump supporter or a Obama supporter a democratic or a Republican who cares? It’s thinking like that that will keep us divided. There are bad people in the world get over it and there beliefs or who the support has nothing to do with the person they may be supporting. He is an individual responsible for his own actions.
    It’s not Republicans or Democrats fault it’s not President Trumps fault it is his own fault.

    • cookie22100
      cookie22100 3 months ago +2

      Trump is what's breeding these ideas in people, that the difference. While yes you're right, it shouldn't matter, this is what happens when we have a leader who is loose at the mouth. We have a world filled with dumb, angry people waiting for the right trigger to do something dumb.

      Funny... did you say the same about the last one? Are you denouncing the Socialists, like this guy is, as well as AOC and Bernie? This guy, and so far NONE of the actual Conservatives, are doing the killing and the shooting. White Supremacists are socialists... that's not even up for debate.

      theyre both racists, they both see humanity as seperate from themselves
      bothsee themselves as a hate filled higher being and something other than the rest of us.
      thats an evil ideal, but yes there are many facets. its like a drug that eats you from inside but makes you feel beautiful, to hate the humanity that is yourself.

    This kind of incident is bound to happen with some of Donald Trump's most mentally disturbed followers as he is constantly speaking negatively about liberals and calling media, other than Fox, the enemies of the people. We regularly see Trump supporters calling for violence against liberals and even calling for another civil war, especially after one of his rallies.
