We don’t want to give publicity to the name, that’s what they want; to go down in history for their hate crimes and terrible acts against humanity as a symbol of “power” to their White Supremacy.
America is not safe.
Shots fired at about 10:40 am on the morning of August 3rd.
Police say twenty people were killed and 26 were wounded in the attack. Police arrested the suspect at the attack site, alive.
El Paso is located on the Rio Grande just across the border from Juarez, Mexico In 2015, El Paso had an estimated population of 679,000, making it the 19th most populous city in the U.S. In El Paso alone, nearly 80% of the population is hispanic.
The El Paso Shooter, age 21, drove nearly 660 miles (1062.7 km), just to kill. He was from Allen, Texas.
This was premeditated murder, a plot to kill.
Nearly 20 minutes before the first 911 call to alert authorities of a mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, a hate-filled, anti-immigrant manifesto appeared online. A manifesto is a public declaration of policy and aims, mainly a pronouncement.
The manifesto appeared online anonymously as a user believed to be the shooter made a post on a infamous extremist site 8chan, alluding to the planned attack. Stating on the post, “Fuck this is going to be so shit but I can’t wait any longer. Do your part and spread this brothers! Of course, only spread it if the attack is successful. I know that the media is going to frame my [me] incorrectly, but y’all will know the truth! I’m probably going to die today. Keep up the good fight.”
A follow-up post stated: “Hello FBI.”Attached to the post was a PDF file named “P. Crusius – Notification Letter,” which contained a four-page manifesto titled “The Inconvenient Truth.”
The manifesto expresses support for Christchurch, New Zealand shooter Brenton Tarrant, and cites Tarrant’s online manifesto for inspiration. The writer lists his reasons for targeting the Hispanic community, stating his belief that Hispanics pose a threat to American racial and cultural identity. He also describes the weapons he has chosen for the attack.
Brenton Tarrant was the 28 year old man who carried out attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand in March of 2019. Facing 51 murder charges, 40 of attempted murder and one terrorism charge, this despicable creature of a man has been gaining ground as a political symbol, as the racist views continue to resonate with white supremacists as inspiration.
The manifesto discusses the reason for choosing to attack with a semi-automatic AK47 rifle. The author states that he did not spend a lot of time preparing for the attack, estimating that he spent less than a month preparing, due to the urgency of his need to take action. He states: “I have to do this before I lose my nerve. I figured that an under-prepared attack and a meh manifesto is better than no attack and no manifesto.” He also states that he expects to die in the attack: “If I’m not killed by the police, then I’ll probably be gunned down by one of the invaders. Capture in this case is far worse than dying during the shooting because I’ll get the death penalty anyway. Worse still is that I would live knowing that my family despises me.”
Not even 24 hours later, shots fired again in Dayton, Ohio. At 1:05 am, on August 4th, ten people were killed, including the perpetrator, and 27 others were injured. The gunman was killed by police within 30 seconds of the first shots being fired.
Nearly two hours before the attack, the gunman was seen entering a bar with his sister and another friend in the downtown Oregon Historic District of Dayton. At about 12:13 am, he was recorded leaving the bar splitting from the two.
Adelia Johnson, a former girlfriend of the shooter, says she bonded with Ohio gunman over their experiences with mental illnesses. She learned him, and learned he was fascinated by current events and tragedies, including mass shootings. He was interested in what makes terrible people do terrible things.
A former friend of the man who carried out a mass shooting in Dayton says the shooter held a gun to his head earlier this year. Will El-Fakir told the Dayton Daily News that he fell out with the shooter after he pulled out a gun and held it near El-Fakir’s head five months ago. “He was getting a little violent with friends… He started bringing guns around us for no particular reason,” adding that the shooter was using drugs at the time.
Before the shooters Twitter account was taken down, reports believe that his politics appear to have been left of center. The shooter had recently tweeted that he would “happily” vote for Senator Warren.
The Dayton shooter’s leftist ravings are notable only because the media and Democratic politicians have drawn a straight line between the El Paso shooter’s anti-immigrant “manifesto” and Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
