  1. They need2have a "Are you or someone you know a White Supremacist?" question on gun purchase applications.

  2. Again u mfs won't fool me 15 to 80 boys are the dangerous mfs on planet earth not some mf 5000 miles away in some desert..white Amerikkkans terrorist from day one

  3. He was Iranian and Italian as per his own facebook profile. He was not on a white supremacists website it was an anarchist, anti-semitic, anti-christian website.

  4. His post before the shooting, "Why overcrowd towns and pave more open space to make room for hoards of mestizos and silicon valley white twats." Anarchism at its finest.

  5. So..let me get this straight…He identifies himself as Iranian but he is white? I have not heard that he is Iranian on the media but people who knew him and went to school with him say he is Iranian and hates whites and was always putting whites down…what is the truth?

  6. That he was a Iranian Italian who had anger issues and Nazi worship just another left wing nutjob being classified as a right winger! Nonsense the media needs to stop the lies

  7. If he were a brown guy shooting up a public event he would be labeled as a terrorist, and then they would interview anybody he's ever met and make sure nothing like this ever happens again, but since it's a white supremacist shooting up the place killing a six-year-old boy of color nobody even cares enough to make sure that it doesn't happen again do they?

  8. Mainstream media is to blame.
    Go through all the videos posted from this past week, and you will see a trend.

  9. Before the big bad white boy shot and killed an unarmed: 6 yr old boy. A 13 yr old girl. And a 25 yr old black man. Why? NOt FOR BEING A THREAT TO THE COWARDS "RACE"…BUT FOR BEING ALIVE.
    NO EXCUSE. HE JUST WANTED TO DIE BECAUSE HE WAS TOO WEAK AND LAZY TO LIVE IN PEACE AND TOO COWARDLY TO OFF HIMSELF. SUICIDE BY COP.
    IF HE CARED ABOUT HIS RACE HE WOULDVE BEEN WORKING W BERNIE AND LIZ TO MAKE THEIR LIVES SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER.
    THEY NEEDED LINE OF SITE SECURITY ON THE FENCES GUARDS AND OR CAMERAS. THEY COULD HAVE STOPPED HIM BEFORE HE BREACHED THE FENCE. LESSON 1 FOR PUBLIC VENYES. WE VE EBTERED A NEW ERA OF EVER ESCALATING ATTACKS BY TRUMPS EXTREMIST FASCIST PONE WOLF DOMESTIC TERRORISTSSEE J9H MARK.
    DOMINIONISTS.CIVIL WAR 2 SITE.
    EDUCATE YOURSELVES. ARM YOURSELVES JOIN UP BE VIGILANT AND DETERMINED. THEY ARE MAKING WAR ON US N O W.
    Time to defend ourselves is N O W.

  10. Lone wolf gunman.
    JOHN MARK FASCIST TRUMP EXTREMIST ADVOCATING CIVIL WAR AND GENOCIDE OF DEMS AND LIBS AND ANYONE RESISTING THEIR FASCIST TAKE OVER .
    WANTS TO DESTROY THE INFRASTRUCTURE TO STARVE MILLIONS. READ IT AND PREPARE YOUR DEFENCES. IT ONLY TAKES ONE SIDE TO MAKE A WAR. THEYRE ATTACKING US N O W.

  11. Its so stupid people keep blaming political motivations of 19yo child, when clearly cruel culture of child abuse and sociological abuse causes these children to do what they do.

  12. You are disgusting people. There is one reason, and one reason alone that insane people do this. They want fame/ infamy. Look at any given case. You make money on views. You encourage it. You love it. Manifesto…. reason…motive….Please. They write whatever will get eaten up by the "news". This is all on you. We should start legal action against any media that posts manifestos and names to aide and abet these lunatics in their quest for attention.

  13. Another.demoncrat..JUST LIKE EL PASO…AND THE EL.PASO GUYS OWN.MAIFESTO SAYS DOING IT FOR TH3 ENVIRONMENT.

    THIS GUY IS FULL OF IT…THATS ONE OF ANTIFAS BOOK…AKA ANY MEAN NECCESSARY REMEMBER.

  14. How about a New Federal law that bans news agencies from releasing the name of the shooter! If a news agency releases the name, their fine should be given to the victims family, that way the shooters will never become famous, like they are now! The only way news agencies should be allowed to release the shooter’s name is to have the consent from ALL the victims families! It’s called respect.
