Why is this a surprise? All republicans and their christian backers love the murder to innocents. Just look at their racist, murdering history of 2,000 years.

I realize that christians love to point out Martin Luther King - who they murdered - as their shield, but they should point at constantine who murdered thousands, their crusades that murdered millions and gw bush who murdered 100's of 1000's.

All christians/republicans are the same.

They're busy combing through his manifesto trying to find ways he can be cast as a "liberal" and "staunch Democrat" so they can prove this is all Biden's fault.
 
2022-05-16 1:04:05 AM  
In other news:

Al Jazeera was not able to find any statement by Republican legislators denouncing the killing. of Shireen Abu Akleh

To be fair that was only a full day after the murder and Israel immediately blamed Palestinians although that was quickly called into doubt if not thoroughly debunked.

"An American journalist clearly marked with press credentials was murdered. Doing and saying nothing just enables more killings.
Whether you're Palestinian, American, or not, being killed with US funding must stop" -  Rashida Tlaib

It seems like a broad swath of the American public is not prepared to accept "Racism" as a real thing, and is only a concept that Liberals make up to attack them.

Even when a teenager literally writes "Attractive and Successful African-Americans" on the weapon he kills 10 random strangers with, it can only be labeled "Racially Motivated."

A few disinformation outfits tried to sell the line that he was a leftist, quoting a few words from the manifesto out of context. It laid an egg.

Gubbo: Racially motivated....

Difficulty: If media outlets call that racist sack of filth a racist, he can sue them for libel/slander/defamation; and depending on the judge and/or jury, there's a fairly high chance that he would win that civil suit, even if he's convicted on all counts in his criminal trial.

A ghost of a hint of an iota of plausible deniability (and a sufficiently sympathetic judge and/or jury) is all he would need to win such a lawsuit. All his lawyer would need to do is (successfully) argue that writing a horrifyingly racist manifesto and then immediately going on a racially-motivated killing spree do not necessarily mean that he is a racist.

What's there to think about? It's one of the cores of right-wing ideology. If one of their brethren does something even their leaders cannot spin as a good thing (or at least not well enough to convince enough of society at large that it's 'good'), then they were secretly the Other. After all, the Party can only do good, and the Other can only do evil.

I would very much like that as well. News people reporting the facts would be a very important step on the long and arduous road to finally adding the US to the list of countries which don't suck.

But they would end up defending their rights to report facts all the way up to the current Supreme Court.


There's a certain degree of pragmatism in the media's choice to refer to him as "a guy who's accused of committing a racially-motivated killing spree" and not "a racist guy who's accused of committing a racially-motivated killing spree;" part of that pragmatism includes not wanting to lose the right of reporting the fact of the racial motivation in cases like this.

Much more likely that this absurd alternate-universe legal system: the guy who tweeted probably doesn't know about this weird idiosyncratic hierarchy you've invented between "racist" and "racially motivated". Racially motivated murders are, pretty much by definition, carried out by racists. This is like complaining that he said "mass murder" instead of calling the guy a "killer."

No, we don't realize that.


Police in California said that four people have been critically wounded, and one person is dead after a shooting at a Laguna Woods church on Sunday afternoon.
The Orange County Sheriff's Department said that one person has been detained, and they have recovered a weapon that may have been involved in the incident. An additional person suffered minor injuries in the shooting, according to police.
The shooting took place at Geneva Presbyterian Church.
