It seems business as usual in the USA, all these mass-shootngs. Where does all this hate come from?
Stephen Cohen, the co-president of New Light Congregation, which rents space at Tree of Life, said: “When you spew hate speech, people act on it. Very simple. And this is the result. A lot of people dead. Senselessly.”
An hour before the shooting, Bowers wrote on a social media site, Gab, “HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics. I’m going in.” HIAS is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, a group that helps refugees.
I don't understand the phrase "Screw your optics". But this Bowers considered Trump controlled by "the Jews".
Trump's reaction was predictable:
“If they had protection inside the results would have been far better. If they had some kind of a protection inside the temple, maybe it would have been a much different situation,” the president said.
We are famous for "Stockholm syndrome": "Q: Hey, what's up with Matt? His Dad is on social security, his mom got laid off, his sister's kids get free school lunches, he collects federal financial aid for college, and he only makes minimum wage working at Walmarts. Yet he keeps talking about how we need to cut taxes for the wealthy and quit spending so much on social programs. A: Yeah, he thinks he's going to be a millionaire soon. He's got Economic Stockholm Syndrome." (Urban Dictionary)
This was done by a lunatic pure and simple. You can do all the legislating you want. Ban every gun and do all the background checks unil your blue in the face. It all boils down to one thing, you can't protect yourself against crazy.
