People are making political decisions about cultural issues like that based on emotion rather than reason.

The NRA and their sycophants will say these massacres are a result of a “mental illness”. However, as a FBI profiler so correctly observed this morning (on Fox no less) is that hatred is NOT a mental illness. Hatred is hatred, pure and simple. The FBI also does not have the same tools at its disposal relating to “domestic terrorism” that it does for “international terrorism”. Let’s see if and when Trump and others advocate more tools to law enforcement to combat home grown hatred. I won’t hold my breath...if the massacre of 20+ second graders doesn’t result in some change in gun safety policy, I remain bleakly skeptical.

Um, Trump has eliminated funding for federal law projects to combat domestic terrorism by white supremacist groups. He did it almost immediately in his presidency.

https://thehill.com/policy/national-...-wing-violence

https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/ar...rogram/574237/

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/nat...terror-n926361

https://www.usatoday.com/story/opini...mn/3575579002/

So, it’s not as if this is happening spontaneously. You have Trump and his alt-right confederates fanning the flames of hatred with their rhetoric at the same time they’ve deliberately curtailed the federal government’s efforts to combat the worst of these groups. IOW it’s by design. When Trump was talking about some of his “2nd Amendment supporters” taking out Hillary while he was on the campaign trail or he talked about his Biker’s for Trump supporters beating up Democrats who resist his agenda after he took office, it should’ve been clear to you he was signaling that he wants his own modern day version of Mussolini’s black shirts. There’s a not-so-implicit threat of violence laced in Trump’s rhetoric and policy choices that comes straight from the authoritarian’s playbook of other so-called leaders he professes his love for like Orban, Erdogan, Kim, and yes, Putin.

Care to explain why you think that way?

And remember, folks. You can watch the actors advocate positions of white supremacy, you can sit idly by as they actively and passively promote said positions, but whatever you do DON'T call them out on it because that's just abhorrent!

I think 2dubs big problem is tying him to white supremacist terrorists because he constantly and consistently carries water for a guy who AT MINIMUM gives cover to the same. Actually, when dear leader out and out calls for violence towards his political opponents, or just smirks when someone else does, on the regular, no one should be surprised when mentally unhinged people literally start shooting.

You lie down with dogs (or worse), you get fleas, 2dubs. You can keep trying to slap on different coats of paint, but when you Crimedog McGruff ridiculous shit from Democrats on the reg (buttery males!), whilst parroting nonsensical Foxnews talking points, and your mealy mouthed equivocation on pretty cut and dried immoral behavior, the rest of us who can discern between right and wrong are gonna see right through it.

Yeah, I know, you hate Trump and everything, yadda yadda, but both sides, Democrats do XYZ, keep shoveling that shit, just know everyone just sees you standing in a pile of it.

Pearls clutched, fainting couch employed, color me unsurprised.
